Justified or Murder?
Today, the powers that be in the state of Oregon decided that they would make the claim that state police and the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team were “justified” in shooting and killing Robert “LaVoy” Finicum. They also released a video in which they synched the FBI video with the video taken by Shawna Cox, from inside the truck, to show their justification. http://video-embed.oregonlive.com/services/player/bcpid1949055967001?bctid=4791943438001&bckey=AQ~~,AAAAPLpuSqE~,a1DdoZJH5WQo4iWaJj1w_CktvJfhQVVG
During the news conference they also released what they claim is the autopsy picture of where LaVoy’s gunshot wounds were. They said that he was shot three times and the picture shows one In the shoulder, one in lower right back, and one in the neck. If this is supposed to be an accurate accounting of the autopsy then where is the shot that pierced his heart as they say in the article? [i] According to this video of said picture. http://video-embed.oregonlive.com/services/player/bcpid1949055967001?bctid=4791625826001&bckey=AQ~~,AAAAPLpuSqE~,a1DdoZJH5WQo4iWaJj1w_CktvJfhQVVG
They also show in this video what is suppose to be a 9mm Ruger SR9 that was “supposedly” found in LaVoy’s coat pocket, except that we all know by now he never carried an automatic as “real cowboys carry revolvers”. So where that Ruger came from will be interesting to find out. We also know from witnesses and video proof taken at the refuge that LaVoy had left his side arm, which he wore on his right hip, at the refuge. In fact video taken at the refuge when Duane surrendered show him wearing LaVoy’s side arm. They were asked by Sheriff Glenn Palmer to come to the meeting unarmed and witnesses have said they left all their weapons at the refuge.
The next question that I have is why was the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team involved? The FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team “Created in 1983 and based at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, the HRT is the U.S. government’s non-Department of Defense full-time counterterrorist tactical team. HRT, whose motto is servare vitas (“to save lives”), provides enhanced manpower, training, and resources to confront the most complex threats.” [ii] and they were part of WACO and Ruby Ridge as well as hunting down the men at the Boston Bombings. [iii].
The whole problem with situation started with the fact that the refuge was built in violation of the Constitution, Article 1 Section 8 Clause 17. They, the BLM, which is an illegal operation in and of itself, took land from the local ranchers by means that were or should be considered illegal such as flooding out their ranches, burning their livestock and grass lands, and other questionable means. This video shows them burning the land and cows. They even threatened to arrest the ranchers for trying to put the fires out. Yet, the ranchers, patriots, and those standing up and informing the world are the ones that are being called the “domestic terrorist”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHyZQrMZ7lA
Then when Sheriff Ward, who was appointed by Judge Grasty who is a “probate” judge only and has no judicial authority outside of that, (because the last sheriff suddenly had to resign) rather than being elected by the people of the county, couldn’t handle the situation so he called in the FBI; the Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown, sent a request to the White House to have them taken care of, and they did. They trapped the patriots on a back road into John Day into what the military would call a “kill box”. [iv] For those who don’t know a kill box sets the situation up so that the enemy is directed into a certain area which in turn allows the military to be in control of the attack.
If any of those people previously mentioned had bothered to follow the Constitution, Robert “LaVoy” Finicum would still be alive, the patriots being held in jail in Portland would be home with their families, the Hammonds would be home and not sitting in prison via “double jeopardy”, and everyone would be happy.

[iii] “Some higher-profile cases include the Waco Siege, Ruby Ridge, the capture of the suspected masterminds of the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Africa, the rescue following the 2013 abduction of a five-year-old boy in Alabama, and the hostage rescue operations of prison guards at Talladega, Alabama, and St. Martinville, Louisiana. On 19 April 2013, the Hostage Rescue Team arrested a man in Watertown, Massachusetts, after a manhunt for the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings of April 15, 2013. HRT rescued a teenager by killing her abductor on August 10, 2013. HRT rescued kidnap victim Frank Arthur Janssen. The HRT assisted in the capture of Eric Matthew Frein. All of these incidents led to changes in how and when the HRT is used by the FBI.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hostage_Rescue_Team
