The violent attacks by corporate mercenaries on Native Americans tribes protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) on Saturday gained national attention on social media over the weekend, spurring an outcry for justice.
As a result, many citizens have demanded the identity of the privately hired security forces who attacked unarmed citizens – including a child and pregnant woman – be exposed, and through the collaboration of the online community, that is exactly what has happened.
Ashley Nicole Welch, the woman pictured in the photo above, has borne much of the brunt of people’s anger as she was the main aggressor among the hired security. It appears she was the first to be exposed out of the group:
Welch’s aggression is apparent in the footage captured by Democracy Now! shown below:
Democracy Now! reporter, Amy Goodman, confronts Welch in the video:
“Ma’am, your dog just bit this protestor. Are you telling the dogs to bite the protestors? The dog has blood in its nose and its mouth.”
Shortly after being asked if she was attacking protestors, Welch can be seen lunging her dog at the crowd in front of the rest of the security team. Among those included on her team, and identified along with her, is Robert “Bob” Frost and Ricardo Bullard. The following information on Welch has been leaked:
Ashley Nicole Welch
Owner/Operator of ANW Quarter Horses
12401 Snow Rd., Burton, Ohio 44021, USA
Approximate age: 30 years
Parents: Doug and Kim Welch
Welch and her accomplices apparently use dogs that are trained at:
9038 Edison St.
Louisville, OH 44641
Citizens are now demanding that Welch and her accomplices be held accountable for their actions, preferably through legal means.
