Just saw this tonight. I haven't seen anyone else's posting so I decided to post it in it's own thread.
This is a High Resolution copy of the shooting of Lavoy.
Great footage. Terrible. Just terrible.
He definitely was reaching for something-his hands weren't up at that time. And, the FEDS shot at the
vehicel without provatation.
I saw a clip earlier today from a retired cop who broke the whole thing down. The cops made the confrontation possible
just by the way they parked their vehicles on the hwy. And, without a gun actually visable....
They may get off crimially, but civilly, they will most likely be found at fault there. I will get the video and post it here.

STATEMENT FROM THE LAVOY FINICUM FAMILY 1-29-2016

I'm not commenting on the video yet, as i still think there isn't enough evidence without body cam footage and sound to say either way. In Iraq those
guy would have never got that close to a road block/check point driving like that, they would of got a warning shot and then lit up with a 50 cal.
They were shot at as they left the first stop, and also as they approached the roadblock, way before the car was even stopped.
Therefore, from both Shawna Cox's and Victoria Sharp's corroborating testimonies, the family of Finicum has a very, very good case for unjustified use
of lethal force to begin with. Not a single shot was every fired at Law enforcement. Not even a gun was ever pointed at them. MURDER, plain and
simple. I hope those officers, every last one of them, is tried for murder and ends up in prison looking at Bubba every night.

It looks like he opened his jacket and checked a wound on his side. That's what I see.
It's hard to tell but he opens his jacket puts his hand on His side and looks at it but doesn't grab anything, he couldn't have been grabbing a
firearm because he used his other hand to open the jacket, if he was grabbing his firearm he wouldn't have been able to open his jacket like that.
Much clearer, but still doesn't quitr clear it up.
He easily could have been reacting to preemptive actions by the law; being shot or tasered, which would cause a person to reflexively reach for the
What is certain is that they lit into the truck with quite a bit of unprovoked gunfire.
It also appears that there could be a good bit of bullet damage to the front windshield prior to Lavoy being shot.
Now, I'm willing to allow that those light spots could actually be pieces of paper on the dashboard, but the whole thing looks like overwhelming force
applied in a situatuon in which it wasn't necessary.
