Sorry, your Facebook check-ins at Dakota pipeline aren't confusing police


By now, you’ve probably seen some of your Facebook friends “checking in” to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

Most of the people using the social media site’s location feature to tag themselves at the Fort Yates, N.D., reservation aren’t actually there, though.

Instead, they’re showing support for protesters in North Dakota who hope to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, a $3.8 billion project meant to carry Bakken oil patch crude across four states to a hub at Patoka, Ill. About 900,000 had checked in to Standing Rock by Monday afternoon, The Guardian reported.
