Submitted without comment, I will let you form your own opinion.
The video is at the LA Times, click here.


I couldn't lift the edited version off the LA Times site but the whole video is already out on YouTube.

Here is the unedited version.

The FBI released video Thursday that shows law enforcement during a traffic stop this week fatally shooting of one of the armed men who occupied an Oregon wildlife refuge.

In the video, Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, 55, drives a white truck into a snowdrift, nearly striking a law enforcement officer. He gets out of the vehicle and can be seen lifting his hands in the air and then lowering them toward his body before at least one Oregon State Police officer shoots him.

Finicum had a loaded 9-millimeter handgun in his pocket, an FBI official said.

The encounter took place Tuesday on a highway several dozen miles from the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

The video was taken from an aircraft. It's not clear exactly when Finicum died.

Until now, officials had given no information about the fatal shooting as law enforcement officers stopped and arrested several protesters who had occupied the refuge in Oregon's high desert near Burns.

The FBI's account of the shooting at a news conference in Oregon on Thursday comes after unverified claims from two witnesses said Finicum sped away from law enforcement before he got out of his vehicle and was shot.

  1. This was a set up, an ambush. Why else was it done in the middle of bumfuck Egypt with no witnesses yet a CAMERA IN THE AIR. And anyone who thinks the feds are unable to edit such footage to show EXACTLY what they want it to show knows NOTHING about
    modern computer tools and digital imaging. NOTHING that LEO and the feds say can be
    taken at face value. History has proven that they have no qualms about lying if it serves their needs. We will likely NEVER know with certainty what really happened on that road.


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
