TYT: Militia Member Killed By Police (VIDEO)



During a traffic stop by police, militia member LaVoy Finicum fled from the scene in his truck. He crashed his vehicle to avoid a police roadblock, left his truck, and was shot dead by police. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) hosts of The Young Turks break it down.

Based on this video, do you believe the shooting was justified? Let us know in the comments below.

“As state troopers trained their guns on Robert "LaVoy" Finicum along a secluded eastern Oregon highway, he reached twice for a pocket that police say contained a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun.

That's when they fatally shot Finicum, a video released Thursday by the FBI appears to show.

The federal agency played the video in an attempt to dispel rumors about the circumstances of Finicum's death two days earlier as he and other leaders of the armed standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge were driving to a meeting.

Conflicting accounts of his shooting fueled outrage among supporters of the refuge occupiers and prompted the leader of a Northwest militia group to issue a call for members to report to Burns.”

#0 sez: "Notice how when he's on the ground & still moving they didn't shoot him 37 more times?"

these thugs (for that's what they are) had already announced to the world their intent to use armed resistance.

3. That is where the bullshit comparisons to kids like Tamir Rice fall completely apart.

This wasn't some random kid in a store with a toy gun. It was a grown man. With real guns. Who had very publicly announced his willingness to defend himself by shooting law enforcement, if he decided that was the thing to do.

2. After those racists pledged to kill and publicized their arms, lucky they all weren't shot

100 times while in their truck.

5. Those weren't "sparks" from shooting the car. Those were flashbangs.

6. "Over and over again"

 

All that is heard is that these people are thugs, terrorists. Ranchers occupied a building. The building they occupied was empty of any human life. The ranchers harmed no one. They, in their minds, thought and think, they are doing the right thing. There's no rule book for fighting for what you believe. The "So Called Justice" we are seeing is not the America perceived by the rest of the world. It's not the America most of us here believe in either!
