Thank you so much for covering this.I was looking TO FIND live coverage.thank you so much.We had a Russellvile,Ar protest against Diamond Pipeline coming from Oklahoma thru Arkansas to Memphis.Arkansas Matters posted an article saying state Public Service Commission approved & that fear of spills are unfounded due to improved pipes,etc.One company is being sued for spills etc in Calif. & has the 5th worst record of all such companies. We know they are lying about many things.It is how they operate. We need more coverage on the facts. We do light brigades to bring awareness. #STP. please spread the word as you can. thank you!

LOL. No offense to Amy, but she hardly looks like she's on a hell raising rampage or that she would go berserk while reporting! Rioter? Not really.
