Watch: The Haunting Words Oregon Protester LaVoy Finicum Said the DAY Before He Was Killed

Photo Credit: YouTubeThe militia spokesman killed in a confrontation with law enforcement in Oregon said in an interview the day before he died that the government appeared to be ramping up for action.

“They’re doing all the things, they’re doing all the things that shows that they want to take some kinetic action against us,” said Robert “Lavoy” Finicum.


Although the identification of the dead protester has not been formerly released, family members identified Finicum as the one killed Tuesday. One of the group’s leaders, Ryan Bundy, was reportedly wounded after law enforcement initiated arrests at a traffic stop of some of the militia group traveling to a community meeting in the city of John Day. According to reports, Fincum and Ryan Bundy refused to obey orders to surrender . . .

The anti-government group took over an unoccupied outpost in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Ore., in Harney County almost four weeks ago as a protest against government encroachment on private lands. The group said after Tuesday’s incident that they intend to stay and continue to protest.

There have been decades of complaints that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has allegedly taken over private lands and uses unscrupulous methods to do so. The arrest and conviction of rancher Dwight Hammond, 73, and his son Steven Hammond, 46, on terrorism charges for performing a controlled burn on federal land was the catalyst for the refuge takeover, even though the Hammonds’ family is not connected to the militia movement.

Finicum’s death lacks details, and this has prompted questions as well as accusations from his family, friends and those watching the scenario unfold. Finicum told a reporter in his last interview that the group had no plans to disrupt public meetings held nearby and did not want violence.

    I don’t expect anything less from a corrupt government.

    Bill Clinton and Janet Reno murdered women and children by setting their house on fire because the gubment said they had guns….however, they never assaulted anyone and kept to themselves….it was horrible …. they machine gunned the house and then used bull dozers to push it up and set it on fire even though they knew that there were women and children inside. This is exactly why our forefathers gave us the right to bear arms….it doesn’t have a damn thing to do with hunting or protection….it was so that we could form militias and take down an usurping government …. they told us we had the right….actually it was our duty to do so and Waco and the Bundy scenaria is exactly why we will never ever turn in our guns….too many people have been murdered by their own government after confiscating their guns….and remember before you vote, Sanders is a socialist….so was Adolph Hitler and you see how that turned out. Wake Up America.

    Reports I’ve seen is that one man has been killed by the FBI and eight men (including Ammon Bundy) have been incarcerated.

    While my heart goes out for these men and their families, let’s not overlook what a wasted effort and waste of life this is. The reason I say this, nearly every one there standing against the government were pro-constitutionalists and it’s the Constitution (particularly Amendment 5) that’s the genesis for this and similar atrocities:

    This is but one of thousands of consequences of the whirlwind today’s America is reaping as a consequence of the wind sown by the late 18th-century founders when they replaced the 17th-cenutury Colonial governments of, by, and for God established upon His unchanging moral law (including His property laws) for their own humanistic government of, by, and for the people based upon capricious man-made Enlightenment and Masonic concepts:

    “[B]ecause they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law … they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind….” (Hosea 8:1,7)

    Case in point: “…The Fifth Amendment concludes with the provisions that no one shall be “deprived of … property without due process of law” and “private property [shall not] be taken for public use without just compensation.” Because this provision allows the government to legally steal private citizens’ lands, these assurances are a cover for theft. Because of Amendment 5’s promise of “just” compensation, most people do not even think to ask whose “due process of law” is going to be employed and whether the government’s confiscation of private lands for public use is ethical or whether governments [Federal OR STATE] should own property at all….

    ‘Moreover the prince shall not take of the people’s inheritance by oppression, to thrust them out of their possession … that my people be not scattered every man from his possession.’ (Ezekiel 46:18)….

    “The Fifth Amendment’s provision for property confiscation is applied in eminent domain, which is nothing more than a form of organized theft:

    ‘Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance….’ (Deuteronomy 19:14)….

    “The creation of public lands is another method employed by the Constitutional Republic to move boundary markers. Identifying these lands as “public” is part of the ruse to conceal the theft. Except that the public is permitted limited access, they are not public at all. These lands, which are often stolen by legislation (such as the Wilderness Act of 1964, the Clean Air Act of 1970, the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and the Clean Water Act of 1977) from private property owners, are owned by the government, not the public. Even public use is changing due to the government’s increasing restriction of access. The fact that the government can and does restrict access further proves its ownership….

    “Public lands are just the tip of the iceberg. All of America is owned by federal and state governments via their claim to property taxes and eminent domain:….”

    I didn’t see Mr. Finicum or for that matter, the Bundy family as anti-government or militia members. I see them as ranchers, good, hard working Americans who are tired of being abused by BLM officials and finally taking a stand by protesting. And being white with the majority male, the government made the unwise decision to terminate the protest by using “deadly force.” Bad news. That didn’t end it and for those who believe ranchers are an easy group to intimidate, they aren’t. In those few areas of the West where individual BLM officials have an agenda and are using their position and every regulation and/or policy in the book to destroy ranchers, I would not care to be a BLM employee working for them in those wide open spaces.

  • ivdad

    Bundy and group are not anti government, but anti unconstitutional government bureaucratic over reach. The Constitution limits the Feds to infrastructure (roads and bridges), interstate commerce, and national security. Nothing the BLM or its parent Department of the Interior has anything to do with with commerce, infrastructure or security. We need to insist that these little Federal serfdoms be defunded and abolished. Federal judges except the SCOTUS were created by Congress, not the Constitution. Congress needs to figure out how to rein in these judges, create an evaluation format or just dump the Federal court system altogether.

    Law enforcement keeps referring to the incident as a “traffic stop”. I call that over the top BS. A traffic stop does not have the road barricaded a mile up the road with back shooting snipers hidden in the woods.

    They say he charged the officers. That is BS also he was walking parallel to the road, away from his vehicle arms outstretched to the side until he flinched and grabbed his left side; most likely from getting shot there before the back shooter killed him.

    Law enforcement claims only three shots were fired. Another dose of BS. watch the video after Finicum was killed. There were several flash bang grenades thrown and you can see multiple shots throwing up puffs of snow along the passenger side of the white truck. No one inside the truck fired a shot or displayed any weapon.

    In my opinion this was no traffic stop. It was a coordinated ambush/assassination to take out the leadership of the protesters.

    Law enforcement descriptions of the events surrounding the killing of Mr. Finicum are over the top BS!

    First they keep referring to the incident as a “traffic stop”. I was in law enforcement for over 28 years and I have never heard of or seen a “traffic stop” that has a barricaded road a mile up the road with back shooting snipers hidden in the woods.

    They say he charged the officers. More BS! He was walking in the snow parallel to the road with his arms outstretched to the side until he flinched and seemed to grab his left side in pain twice. (Gunshot strikes?) He never had a gun in his hands.

    Law enforcement also claims only three shots were fired. More BS! Watch the video after Finicum was shot. There are puffs of snow from bullet strikes flying up along the passenger side of the white truck as flash bang grenades are being thrown. No one in the truck fired or displayed a weapon of any kind.

    In my humble opinion this incident was a coordinated ambush/assassination to take out the leadership of the protesters.

    You can’t say he didn’t have plenty of warning. He was aware of his crimes, aware that officials were ready to arrest him, and he did everything he could to provoke them. It’s a sad way to end a life.

      Your a heartless piece of corrupted DNA, an obvious communist……what crimes moron? We the people own America, we own the lands and we are there only source of income. A retired 28 year veteran law enforcement officer posted on here and claims the communist government’s explanation on this is a tortured lie. It was, in his estimation a coordinated/assassination against the constitutional right of the people to protest government overreach. That land belongs to the people of the state and the tenth amendment is clear on the superiority of states rights! Every single jack boot criminal government assassin that murdered that innocent man with outrageous overwhelming firepower and then lied about it deserves the death penalty for premeditated murder of one of their employers!

      Let me pose this question to the clueless moron posting his innocuous drivel on here, how about you take the halloween mask off before you post on here, it is beyond demented?

      How do you think the uniformed government execution squad would have reacted if they were facing real men, hmm? How about a few SEAL teams fully armed, they would have wet their diapers on the spot. What they did was one of the single largest acts of premeditated murder and cowardice I have ever witnessed! Notice in the Boston marathon bombing which was actually a terrorist attack that killed and maimed scores of Americans, the FBI did’t kill both terrorists, and that one is still alive, hmm!

      This was an overreaction by a bunch of hired assassins against an American citizen’s right to peaceful protest. The agents that shot this unarmed protesting rancher should be fired and prosecuted for first degree murder to the fullest extent of the law! Never mind all the other unarmed innocent citizens they shot a massive number of rounds at!

    They said Finicum died in a shoot out but the only ones shooting were the federal and state agents!
    They said Finicum was acting aggressive and going for a gun they say he had in his coat pocket!
    He was standing in knee deep snow and not going towards anyone.
    The gun the feds say Finicum had was never seen in 50 minutes of video!
    Agents were going over Finicums body for several minutes and never produced a fire arm!
    No one from Finicum’s group fired a shot at anyone!
    There were tracked vehicle tracks toward the trees to the left of Finicum’s pickup, indicating the feds spent some time setting up this “traffic” stop!
