Here is unedited footage released by the FBI on 1/28/2016. This is supposed to assure the public that the man they shot in Oregon on his way to a meeting to discuss a peaceful outcome to the Oregon standoff in Malheur did indeed have a gun and drew it on officers. I beg to differ.

I challenge anyone to tell me from this fuzzy video that he reached for a gun. Starting at 9 minutes 20 seconds Finicum gets out of the vehicle with his arms raised. He walks forward, then you can see his arm move towards his waist and you can see him turn. What you cannot see is a gun. It appears that he is reaching for something and at this point we don’t know what.

Things that don’t make sense: If he did indeed threaten with a gun, and it was still on his person when he fell (nothing flew from his hands) why didn’t the cops approach immediately to make sure that he did not pose a threat? Why did they wait over 10 minutes to go to the body and remove a weapon? You do not shoot someone then wait for him to die with a gun in his hand and go about your business. You remove the weapon immediately to make sure that he cannot use it before he dies.

Show me the gun!

You cannot take anything for granted. You cannot assume that a person is dead immediately. You remove the weapon and verify that the person is barely alive or dead. These are supposedly highly trained officers who would be following procedure. Unless they knew that they jumped the gun (so to speak) and shot without confirmation. If that were the case, they would be regrouping and solidifying their story. What they do not do is act like a dying person with a gun still in his hand is not a threat. Not logical. See for yourself.

Joint FBI and OSP Operation 01/26/2016


UPDATE: Here is the edited version, cutting out most of the chase. Start at 5:50 and watch carefully. Finicum reaches into his jacket and pulls something out and then puts it right back in, then turns and was shot. This is what I am thinking: He might have been trying to surrender something, possibly a weapon, to officers, realized he was in serious trouble, and put it back in his jacket, then he was shot. You might need to watch several times to realize what is going on. He did not display an aggressive posture.


Here is a higher quality snip of the shooting incident with slow motion. 


UPDATE: FBI admits gun was found in Finicum’s pocket. “On at least two occasions, Finicum reaches his right hand toward a pocket on the left inside portion of his jacket,” Greg Bretzing, special agent in charge for the FBI in Portland, said Thursday night. “He did have a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun in the pocket.”

So, he did not draw a weapon, and it appears that according to the FBI, the police did not know he even had a gun until after he was down for over 10 minutes when they finally approached him and found it in a pocket.

Something smells fishy here.



The FBI says that LaVoy reached twice for a 9mm gun inside his jacket on the left hip area. However, LaVoy carried a revolver on his right hip in a holster. The video shows that LaVoy’s jacket was closed at the time he was shot. Why would a right-handed man who carries a revolver openly on his right hip choose to leave his holster behind and instead hide another man’s 9mm gun on the inside of a jacket around his left hip? It’s as preposterous as the FBI’s thoroughly debunked claim that federal agents did not start the fires that burned 80+ men, women and children alive at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.

The FBI is lying. LaVoy’s vehicle was shot at one time at the first stop when Ryan put his hands and head out the window to speak to the feds. LaVoy’s vehicle was shot at several times as he drove away to seek the help and protection from the Grant County Sheriff. LaVoy’s windshield was shot from the front by an agent who jumped out in front of the vehicle at the second stop.

LaVoy was transporting an 18 year old girl with him who was visiting with her family to sing gospel music at the town hall they were traveling to. To save her, Shawna and Ryan Bundy, LaVoy jumped out of the vehicle with his hands in the air. He yelled out that if they were going to shoot someone, to shoot him. With his hands in the air, that is exactly what they did.

The first shot struck him on the left side of his body. His body began to buckle and his hands went down to the wound but he was ordered to put his hands back in the air. He tried to do so, but naturally returned his hands back to the wound. He turned and pointed at the vehicle, yelling out that there were women in it. Rushing up behind him, another agent put a laser pointer on LaVoy and shot him in the face. He was still moving on the ground when they shot him three more times.

It was cold-blooded murder. And the American people will not forget it. LaVoy is a martyr for the cause of justice and liberty. We will not stop fighting for our freedom. Harney County Oregon is our Bunker Hill. This is only the beginning.

    What a difference of hearing the report on the radio as to seeing the video. I’m actually surprised they released the video. Looks to me that he was hit maybe 3 times. Something sure stinks here! And then there’s the Hitlery and Putin thing to boot!!

  2. Hi Mary,

    You don’t “dance” in deep snow. You try to keep yourself from falling down. As for “suicide” by cop, there are those who have reviewed the footage and come to the conclusion that he was shot with his hands in the air, then naturally reached for the wound when he was shot again, then turned and shot again. If you look at the video, the rear window of the vehicle is shattered as well as the second from the front left side window. How did that happen unless they were shot out?

    I fully understand all the background of this entire situation, including the botch Clinton and the Russians and the Uranium……and all the BLM bs that amounts to terrorozing these farmers.
    The BLM sucks shit as does the FBI
    That being said…….this dumb ass rancher………why the hell did he not just get out of the rig and put his hands on the top of his vehicle?????
