The fact that OverProtective! Danny is shown letting Steve take care of his son and that Steve was planning to play with him again "in the morning" i. How's that go again? They're good-looking, famous and rich ish. These two are about as deadly as the Winchester Boys when it comes to high body counts--Danny killed 3 people and Steve smashed 2 with his truck while destroying some poor schmuck's family living room at the same time. But again this episode depicts an ongoing trend with this show: that women are not to be trusted and that they are tough as nails.
Granted this show can be quite ridiculous in regard to action sequences and glaring continuity errors, but on this point, the bromance of Steve and Danny, it has been quite strong and steady. The whole arc of the changing nature of their relationship starting with S6E11 has been slow and subtle. Danny is also begrudgingly having to admit that Hawaii is now his home. He has a new family and a partner that will go to the limit and beyond just for him. What more could a man want. I get that the show's schtick is to portray Steve and Danny as this bickering married couple.
A Prelude to chemistry
But I think you are actually suggesting that Steve and Danny are closet homosexuals who the show is finally allowing to express their true feelings? No offence to your opinion I know this will never happen, but I'd love to see an episode from the pov of a Sunday morning local news program doing a piece on on something like, "Is really keeping us safe?
I binged most of the first season while home sick back in the day. They've toned down the kill count a bit over the years, but have really ramped up the property damage and public gunfights. While there are some shows where the actors play into the subtext, I don't think the actors are into this at all. I think that's why the actor's ham it up so much to the point of ridiculousness.
No I am not saying that they are closet homosexuals. I am saying that Steve is committing himself to Danny and Danny is slowly coming around to the idea that maybe he will make his partnership with Steve more permanent. The same thing I said about their have their choice of women, they also have their choice of men too.
I mean think about it: Steve was in the Navy a long time, ya know what I'm saying? I'm sure he had the all the chances in the world to find suitable "bunk mates". Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. But you don't see any of them hanging around do you? And the only one I think we have met so far Danny was immediately jealous of and then Steve end up having to kill him.
Where were the girlfriends or sometime lovers of any sex then? This is a wonderful thing as most people don't get that lucky. Whether the sex thing happens between them is anybody's guess. You have hit the nail on the head there. I truly truly understand that ratings must be considered. But I really think if they were very careful and intelligent about it, the writers could somehow make this happen without making Traditionalist America uncomfortable. Scott and Alex have both said that they live for alternative-thinking, funny scenes and storylines because anyone can put on a slam bang cop show but stuff like this elevates it from the mundane.

It is believed that many of the soldiers were victims of friendly fire from their own Hotchkiss guns. The Indian women and children fled the camp, seeking shelter in a nearby ravine from the crossfire. Some of the soldiers fanned out and finished off the wounded. Others leaped onto their horses and pursued the Natives men, women, and children , in some cases for miles across the prairies. In less than an hour, at least Lakota had been killed and 50 wounded.
Historian Dee Brown, in Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee , mentions an estimate of  of the original having been killed or wounded and that the soldiers loaded 51 survivors 4 men and 47 women and children onto wagons and took them to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Then three or four. A few more. And immediately, a volley. At once came a general rattle of rifle firing then the Hotchkiss guns.
When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can still see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as when I saw them with eyes young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. A people's dream died there. It was a beautiful dream There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead.
A mother was shot down with her infant; the child not knowing that its mother was dead was still nursing The women as they were fleeing with their babies were killed together, shot right through Little boys I don't believe they saw their sights. They fired rapidly but it seemed to me only a few seconds till there was not a living thing before us; warriors, squaws, children, ponies, and dogs Miles who visited the scene of carnage, following a three-day blizzard, estimated that around snow shrouded forms were strewn over the countryside.
He also discovered to his horror that helpless children and women with babies in their arms had been chased as far as two miles from the original scene of encounter and cut down without mercy by the troopers. Judging by the slaughter on the battlefield it was suggested that the soldiers simply went berserk. For who could explain such a merciless disregard for life?
Prelude To A Kill
As I see it the battle was more or less a matter of spontaneous combustion, sparked by mutual distrust Following a three-day blizzard, the military hired civilians to bury the dead Lakota. The burial party found the deceased frozen; they were gathered up and placed in a mass grave on a hill overlooking the encampment from which some of the fire from the Hotchkiss guns originated. It was reported that four infants were found alive, wrapped in their deceased mothers' shawls. In all, 84 men, 44 women, and 18 children reportedly died on the field, while at least seven Lakota were mortally wounded.
An exhaustive Army Court of Inquiry convened by Miles criticized Forsyth for his tactical dispositions but otherwise exonerated him of responsibility. The Court of Inquiry, however, was not conducted as a formal court-martial. The Secretary of War concurred with the decision and reinstated Forsyth to command of the 7th Cavalry.
Testimony had indicated that for the most part, troops attempted to avoid non-combatant casualties. Miles continued to criticize Forsyth, whom he believed had deliberately disobeyed his commands in order to destroy the Indians. Miles promoted the conclusion that Wounded Knee was a deliberate massacre rather than a tragedy caused by poor decisions, in an effort to destroy the career of Forsyth. This was later whitewashed and Forsyth was promoted to major general. The American public's reaction to the massacre at the time was generally favorable. Many non-Lakota living near the reservations interpreted the battle as the defeat of a murderous cult ; others confused Ghost Dancers with Native Americans in general.
In an editorial response to the event, the young newspaper editor L. The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extermination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth.
In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past. They sought compensation from the U. Today the association is independent and works to preserve and protect the historic site from exploitation, and to administer any memorial erected there. Papers of the association — and related materials are held by the University of South Dakota and are available for research. More than 80 years after the massacre, beginning on February 27, , Wounded Knee was the site of the Wounded Knee incident , a day standoff between militants of the American Indian Movement —who had chosen the site for its symbolic value—and federal law enforcement officials.
The battalion of 9th Cavalry was scouting near the White River Missouri River tributary about 50 miles north of Indian agency at Pine Ridge when the Wounded Knee Massacre occurred, and rode south all night to reach the reservation. In the early morning of December 30, , F, I, and K Troops reached the Pine Ridge agency, however, their supply wagon guarded by D Troop located behind them was attacked by 50 Sioux warriors near Cheyenne Creek about 2 miles from the Indian agency.
One soldier was immediately killed. The wagon train protected itself by circling the wagons. Corporal William Wilson volunteered to take a message to the agency at Pine Ridge to get help after the Indian scouts refused to go. Wilson took off through the wagon circle with Sioux in pursuit and his troops covering him. Wilson reached the agency and spread the alarm.
The 9th Cavalry within the agency came to rescue the stranded troopers and the Sioux dispersed. For his actions, Corporal Wilson received the Medal of Honor. Historically, Wounded Knee is generally considered to be the end of the collective multi-century series of conflicts between colonial and U. It was not however the last armed conflict between Native Americans and the United States.
The fight occurred on White Clay Creek approximately 15 miles north of Pine Ridge , where Lakota fleeing from the continued hostile situation surrounding the massacre at Wounded Knee had set up camp. Company K of the 7th Cavalry—the unit involved at Wounded Knee—was sent to force the Lakotas to return to the areas they were assigned on their respective reservations. The 7th Cavalry was pinned down in a valley by the combined Lakota forces and had to be rescued by the 9th Cavalry , an African American regiment nicknamed the " Buffalo Soldiers ". A week after this fight, Plenty Horses shot and killed army lieutenant Edward W.
The testimony introduced at the trial of Plenty Horses and his subsequent acquittal also helped abrogate the legal culpability of the U. Army for the deaths at Wounded Knee. The 9th Cavalry were stationed on the Pine Ridge reservation through the rest of the winter of — until March , lodging in their tents. By then, the 9th Cavalry was the only regiment on the reservation after being the first to arrive in November For this offensive, the army awarded twenty Medals of Honor , its highest commendation.
In the governmental Nebraska State Historical Society 's summer quarterly journal, Jerry Green construes that pre Medals of Honor were awarded more liberally; however, "the number of medals does seem disproportionate when compared to those awarded for other battles. Historian Will G. Native American activists have urged the medals be withdrawn, calling them "medals of dishonor". But at Wounded Knee, they didn't show heroism; they showed cruelty.
Some of the citations on the medals awarded to the troopers at Wounded Knee state that they went in pursuit of Lakota who were trying to escape or hide. John's Episcopal Mission Church was built on the hill behind the mass grave in which the victims had been buried, some survivors having been nursed in the then-new Holy Cross Mission Church. The memorial lists many of those who died at Wounded Knee along with an inscription that reads:.
Forsyth in command of US troops. Big Foot was a great chief of the Sioux Indians. He often said, 'I will stand in peace till my last day comes.

The ceremony has attracted more participants each year and riders and their horses live with the cold weather, as well as the lack of food and water, as they retrace the path that their family members took to Wounded Knee. They carry with them a white flag to symbolize their hope for world peace, and to honor and remember the victims so that they will not be forgotten.

When the 7th Cavalry Regiment returned to duty at Fort Riley from Pine Ridge, South Dakota, the soldiers of the regiment raised money for a monument for members of the regiment killed at Wounded Knee. Today, the stone edifice still stands near Waters Hall. The incident was initially referred to as the "Battle of Wounded Knee". The location of the conflict is officially known as the "Wounded Knee Battlefield".
The U. Army currently refers to it as "Wounded Knee". The poem is about his love of American place names, not making reference to the "battle. Since the publication of the book, the phrase "Bury my heart at Wounded Knee" has been used many times in reference to the battle, especially in music.
