They aren't. They are protecting the corporate interests.

Judging by the events so far they seem more likely to just shoot em then protect them.

And in other news, this is what Sunoco (operator of the DAPL) was up to just last month.

Sunoco Pipeline Spills Gasoline Near Pennsylvania River

Sunoco has the worst record for leaks of any pipeline operator. Their maintenance program is, "Oops." It's no wonder the Standing Rock protest has the support of millions of people who live downstream.

Here's another one. I have to wonder if the oil company hid this from the regulators because they didn't want to prove the Standing Rock protesters had it right. This is not an old pipeline. With no sensors, they didn't even know they had a leak until the farmer told them.
