Two camera angles of LaVoy Finicum shooting – Video


I haven’t opined up to now on the police shooting of Larry Finicum, better known as part of the Bundy ranch battle over grazing on Federal land. The result? The death of Finicum.  Here is a video that I bet few have seen. For the first time we see not just the fuzzy unclear overhead police angle, but actually footage and words of those taken inside the Finicum car at the exact time of the police ambush. And really that is what one can only conclude if one watches this side-by-side clip of the two angles. Here tis:

Two camera angles of the LaVoy Finicum shooting demonstrate what tends to happen when people fail to prevent the government from becoming overgrown.

Finicum was shot three times in the back. He was an Arizona rancher who took part in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge takeover in Oregon.

Finicum was driving the truck that carried Ryan C. Bundy, 43, Ryan W. Payne, 32, Shawna Cox, 59, and Victoria Sharp, 18. In the Jeep behind them was driver Mark McConnell, 37, Brian D. Cavalier, 44, and Ammon Bundy, 40, the public face of the occupation. They were bound for a community meeting 100 miles north of the refuge in John Day.

    We have the right of self-defense, but they have the right of massed fires. We the people do not stand much of a chance against crew-served, belt-fed weapons and armored vehicles. This incident didn’t have to happen and I wonder about the head work that went in to planning it. When you occupy a place, as in this instance, then you had better have a plan to defend it. Moving away from that static location subjected these ranchers to the possibility of ambush; that is what happened. I keep wondering when the “militia” will take their campaign in a different direction … time will tell.

      It is one of the reasons I stayed away from this topic. Is this the canary in the coal mine? Not the best judgement to leave their encampment. But they wanted media attention. Sadly this was the only way it was going to end. But sickening in the planning of the ambush. Many get angry with me that I won’t count on the military not to turn on us.

      I completely agree with you about the military. The military was once composed of men who dedicated themselves to the Constitution; now they dedicate themselves to career opportunity and the favor of politicians. No, we cannot trust the military. Not one bit.

        By the time the P.C. police get done with them they will be simply drones.

      Once you see this it leaves little doubt. But the media won’t play it.

        I viewed the online broadcast and it leaves zero doubt in my mind. If I were still a Detective Sergeant, I would be raising high holy hell to make arrests (ALL OF THEM AS CO-CONSPIRATORS), and pushing to District Attorney Office to move on criminal indictments. That was an orchestrated murder ambush.
