The Morton County Sheriff Department -- responsible for shooting water protectors with rubber bullets, tear-gassing them, beating them, strip-searching them, and jailing them in 'dog kennel's with Nazi-type numbers written on their arms -- says it has been 'doxed.'
Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier said Thursday, "protesters released personal information, including date of birth and home address, of a Bismarck Police Department officer. Protesters have also publicly identified several other Bismarck Police Department officers and a Morton County Sheriff’s Deputy. The tactic, known as 'doxing' has been used extensively by professional protest groups like “Anonymous” and aims to publicly release personal details of targeted individuals, like police officers and elected officials."
