Activists Benjamin Franklin and Shannon Bebe chained themselves to heavy machinery to delay construction on the toxic Keystone XL pipeline. But when a TransCanada supervisor named "John" arrived on the scene and privately huddled with police, things got ugly.
The activists say that officers immediately forced them into stress positions and used chokeholds, violent arm-twisting, pepper spray and even repeated tasering to force them to relent.
Afterwards TransCanada staff congratulated the police for a "job well done."
