Lessons To Be Learned From The Tragic Shooting Death Of Oregon Protester LaVoy Finicum

Martin Hill has posted a fuller take on the shooting of Oregon protesters Lavoy Finicum

Snippet:
[B]y all accounts...LaVoy Finicum was a very good and decent, God-fearing man with the best of intentions. He was passionate in his beliefs. He even posted a beautiful video of his family singing 'Amazing Grace' a mere hours before his death.

However, whether you have a donut, a pocket full of daisies or an AK47 under your jacket, if you reach in to your jacket during a confrontation with amped up Israeli-trained cops guess what? You'll SURELY dead as dirt within seconds. Do you want that? I don't think so.

Only a suicidal maniac or an irrational looney tunes would act like that in such a situation, sorry.

  1. Finicum expressed a deep aversion to being jailed. While the facts are still out, the FBI is not known for releasing videos, so he might have reached inside his coat. Unfortunate outcome. Perhaps he chose to go down rather than sit in a prison cell for years. These guys (occupiers) had a good cause but a very bad strategy

  2. Is a passenger required to show ID on a routine stop in California ? They keep passing so many laws it's hard to keep up.

  3. Does reaching in a jacket account for the vehicle being sprayed with bullets while trying to surrender?

  4. I agree with Robert that it is a bad idea to directly confront the federal government. And, I've also read (or heard) LaVoy say he did not want to go to prison. Having said that, why would a man who grew up around guns and probably knew more about them than the feds have reached for a gun? What possible motive could he have had? To die a martyr? I don't know the answer. This question bugs me, though. I can't believe he thought he would win a shoot out or even do any damage while surrounded by gun-toting FBI agents.

  5. "However, whether you have a donut, a pocket full of daisies or an AK47 under your jacket, if you reach in to your jacket during a confrontation with amped up Israeli-trained cops guess what? You'll SURELY dead as dirt within seconds."

    WTF? Since when do we accept Gov statements as gospel!?! Or MSM? Gov never lies, right?

    Maybe Finicum clutched at his chest because he'd just been shot...

  6. Here ya go...

    "An eyewitness, Victoria Sharp, tells a different story that contradicts the FBI’s statement.

    According to Sharp, Finicum was shot with his hands up, and he only reached for his side reacting to being shot."

  7. As you've said in the past Robert, direct confrontation with the state never goes well. Plus I wont be shocked that the FBI is found out to be lying just like their local coproach brothers do, day in and day out.
