I am heart broken, and I am in pray for Levoy’s friends and family and for the Bundy’s. This is a terrible outcome. It looks like the people at the refuge were aware by how hostile the FBI had gotten. The interview the day before his death is chilling, see below.
Oregon standoff spokesman Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum killed, Bundys in custody after shooting near Burns
LaVoy Finicum has reportedly been killed in a confrontation with police and FBI, who confronted and arrested the other leaders of the Oregon Occupation.
The confrontation took place Tuesday evening, with police also arresting the leader of the occupation, Ammon Bundy. Six others were also arrested after a traffic stop in Harney County, where the occupation leaders were headed to a community meeting.
The occupation of a federal wildlife reserve had stretched on for several weeks after two local ranchers were sent to prison for setting fire to federal lands. While local police and federal officials had been slow to move in on the occupation, there were signs that the group was prepared to become violent. Last week Bundy had told KATU News that while the group did not have intentions on using the weapons they brought, “we have them, and we’re willing to stand with them in our own defense as we exercise our rights, and as we restore our rights back to our brothers and sisters.”
While the FBI had not yet released the name of the person killed, several sources identified him as Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, who had been the public face of much of the Oregon Occupation.
FYI- I am only reposting this report, I have not confirmed any of it yet.
MEME that I found;
