Mock drill in SD riles Keystone pipeline opponents
May 24, 2013 15:48 GMT
HOT SPRING, S.D. (AP) -- An emergency drill in Hot Springs has outraged opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline and a proposed uranium mine in western South Dakota after it portrayed the groups as domestic terrorists.
The Hot Springs School District practiced a lockdown May 14 after pretending to receive a letter from a group promising destruction unless the projects were stopped.
The school district and county have been bombarded with emails and calls about the drill from people who felt it unfairly demonized opponents of Keystone XL and a proposed uranium mine near Edgemont.
Farmer Don Kelley tells the Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/12S5HBk) he and others want an apology.
Fall River County Emergency Manager Frank Maynard says the focus was on the drill itself, rather than the fabricated threat, and no insult was intended.
