RENO (Monday, October 9th) — Five people were injured when a white pickup truck plowed into Native American rights activists, protesting Columbus Day and speaking out for the defense of the water at Standing Rock.
During the Abolish KKKolumbus Day March on Monday, at about 6:40 p.m. the driver of the pickup stalked the marchers and yelled insults at them, before slamming into Native Americans and supporters, including a grandmother who is hospitalized.
With multiple fractures to her pelvis, and in the hospital, the grandmother said, ‘I feel this was attempted vehicular homicide. He could have killed us, and he didn’t care.”
The hate crime was caught on video and the license plate is in clear view below.

The pellets produced here would be shipped to Los Angeles for export to Asia.”
