Burns Oregon... after LaVoy Finicum, what now?

The killing of LaVoy Finicum is a watershed event in contemporary American history.  It will be many days before any official documents are released, such as diagrams, autopsy reports, toxicology reports and the like.  We as Americans are left with not only a sense of loss, but of a loss for our Country.

In the aftermath of events surrounding the "Gentle Giant" in Ferguson, Missouri and Trayvon "skittles and tea" Martin, the public eventually were shown the autopsy reports and toxicology reports.  I will take a bet on it that LaVoy Finicum will not be found to have any THC in his system, unlike others of note.  What will the autopsy report show?  Will it show physical evidence to support the FBI version, or the eye witnesses statements?  If those documents NEVER make it into circulation, then you will know the truth, and that truth shall set you free.

It is troubling that the DoJ and various city governments gave license to looters, rapists, arsonists and murderers (Ferguson, Baltimore...), yet LaVoy Finicum had to be sacrificed while feral urban denizens were given free reign.
 Actual Military Veterans Say Cops In Ferguson Are Excessively Armed ...

We did not see armed troopers shoot down protesters in Ferguson or Baltimore.  The press made sure that we all saw the MRAPS, the long range scopes on rifles, the tacticooled out police.  The ambush of LaVoy Finicum was set up to be beyond media coverage.  Funny how the news coverage of the events depicted above in Ferguson differed from Burns, Oregon.

But we have seen the aftermath of them shooting down a husband, father and a grandfather who was a productive member of society.  Is he the Randy Weaver of our day?  Remember, Randy Weaver lost his wife to the Hostage Roasting Team member Lon Horiuchi back in time and place at Ruby Ridge (Aug 22, 1992) and his son to the Marshals in the woods.  He was also acquitted of most charges.  LaVoy Finicum will never get his day in court.  Maybe that is the new SOP.

Here is the FBI's OWN REPORT on the event, where they own up to "... we know today that law enforcement over reacted..."  I suspect that in a few years (years which will bring no solace to LaVoy Finicum's family and loved ones) a similar "mea culpa" will issue forth and all will be officially "forgiven".  Here is the CATO review of events then.  It is instructive to see how the current public relations spin mimics that of Ruby Ridge.

What lessons are silently shouted by this whole event?

1-  If you don't have trust issues, get some. You'll live longer. 
2-  If you are running a convoy of vehicles somewhere, having a lead vehicle in constant communications might help in figuring out if you are getting set up.  It is hard for even the military to whack everyone.
3-  If you are not thinking about counter intelligence, you are wrong.  Think about it and live longer.
4-  If you are in danger of getting deleted by the forces of Mordor, you might consider live uploading if you can.

It will also be instructive if the Malheur occupiers were armed or not in this event.  I know it goes against much, but NOT being armed sometimes makes it harder for them to kill you.  They can't all be carrying "throwdown" ARs' and such.  Think that does not happen?  Try again.  There is even record of cop slang on this topic.  I do not think most cops do this, but there are enough instances in the news where this is not unheard of.

While America knows that Lon Horiuchi dropped the hammer on an innocent woman at Ruby Ridge, will the FBI be forthcoming with who was the designated shooter on this one?

Given the tone of politics in America today, with the spittle-flecked orders of the totalitarian apparatchiks echoing out of board rooms, perhaps it is a wonder that the FBI and their local water carriers did not go full SVR/STASI and eliminate ALL the witnesses.  Perhaps some human decency lives.  Let us pray that it does.

LaVoy Finicum's Stand for Freedom - In his own words explaining the issues:

Video from August, 2015

Perhaps in death LaVoy Finicum provides freedom loving Americans a non-violent means to ask questions, seek transparency and hold elected and appointed officials accountable.  Accountable in Baltimore, Ferguson AND Burns, Oregon.

P.S.- to all the nihilist bolsheviks (I know a few, personally... yes, Gary, I mean you.  Yes, and you too, Deb) out there who were praying for some/all of the Malheur occupiers to be killed... you may want to rethink the implications of such factional politics and advocacy.  It may not turn out the way you want it to.  Remember the words of

Martin Niemöller

as you go to sleep tonight:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

When you selectively cheer and advocate for the demise of men like LaVoy, you might want to ponder what that means for your country, for you and for your soul.

There should be a detailed inquest, severe punishment for the killers if not a public execution. Who's next ? Was the Third Reich so bad or Stalinist Russia ? I believe the FBI and OSP have one up on the Commies and fascists...... Another sledge hammer on the fly ?
