As the nation moves away from the first skirmish between the Oregon anarchists led by Cliven Bundy's sons, the death of the wildlife refuge takeover cabal has grabbed national news.
We should not be surprised about stories of an assassination of Lavoy Finicum. The surprise is the quickness with which some members of the cabal are truth-telling about Finicum's death. Stories of the "tent guy" on his knees with his hands in the held in the air are false. If you have a few minutes consider listening to some of the following video (twelve plus minutes) for what can be described as propaganda and attempts at martyrdom: linked here.
Herewith is a telling of the shooting from a conservative website. The piece has links to Fox News sites on which one writer headlined the words "Suicide by Cop." The other Fox News links offer comment from a Finicum family member:
The Raw Story offers a detailed telling of the incident with video and comments from anarchists who were involved in the roadblock incident.
The writer of the Young Conservative piece simply nailed the matter. Regardless of which story is based in fact, the entire incident and related death are a tragedy that was completely unavoidable.
