Star of the hit TV show “Divergent” has been arrested and later released from jail. The reason for this arrest had to do with her behavior during the infamous pipeline protest.
The arrest was due to a trespassing charge. Shailene was allegedly caught protesting on the construction site at Dakota Access Pipeline.
Unbelievably, the entire incident was captured during a Facebook live stream in Morto County, ND.
The purpose of the protest was due to a 1,172 miles pipeline being built across four different states. There was recently an appeal put in by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which was denied by the federal court system.
The people at the protest believe that their appearance and protesting the pipeline would hold up or stop the operation. Neither one of these possibilities seems to be true.
Her crimes landed her at max, 30 days in jail and a 1,500 dollar fine. She was able to make bail before the court date and had an important message once she was released.
She said that she is thankful for all of the support she has received and heard about while she was in jail.
The Facebook live feed was odd. She had 40,000 viewers and explained they had guns and zip ties and ended up arresting her. Right before it happened she asked why none of the other protesters were arrested but did not get a solid answer.
Watching this video multiple times does raise some important questions that need to be answered.
First of all, why did the cop did not read her rights? Secondly, why wasn’t anyone else arrested around her? Finally, is standing around a pipeline that they already built going to help?
