This is an open letter to Americans everywhere. I have never been more awake than I am right now! Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum is a true American Patriot and a hero who gave his life for the freedom of others.
I feel deep inside my soul that I need to share how his death, and the events that led up to it, has affected me, as someone who did not know this man personally but as someone he reached through his fight for freedom. LaVoy was a man of profound principles and an amazing human being.
LaVoy Finicum was more than just a cowboy with principles who stood up for what he believed in. He was a man that all of us should strive to be like. At his funeral, one of LaVoy’s daughters spoke about a quote her dad shared with her.
“Several years ago my dad shared this quote with me. It says a good man draws a circle around him and in it he cares for his family, his wife and his children. A great man draws a larger circle including his brothers, his friends and protects them as he would his family. But then there is a rare man who has a special destiny. His circle extends beyond boundaries to include the world of innocents who lack the will to defend themselves.”
She thinks it quite evident who her dad was.
That quote was simply prophetic! The quote was, I am sure, just a sampling of the kind of man LaVoy was.
For me personally, the moment I saw LaVoy on television being interviewed, I was instantly connected to him. As the reports came out of Oregon, I believed almost immediately that LaVoy’s group had been ambushed. Yes, I say ambushed from the onset.
I knew in my heart there was no way possible that what had happened was a ‘traffic stop’. It was surreal to read and hear about the ambush that had taken place. I tried to stay up all night to get a grasp on what had happened. When I learned that someone had been killed, I couldn’t believe my ears. But, when I learned it was LaVoy, the man who had reached into my soul with the words he had spoken, I was devastated.

What else is there to say?
Btw, I doubt the assemblywoman will run from the police, then run out of her car upon almost crashing into them and reach for a weapon.
Sounds like wishful thinking on your part because I really doubt the authorities will shoot someone with their hands out the
Funny how this is all the authorities fault.
I'm not even gonna talk about how he died because we all know but the problem is many of you will throw facts to the wind and grasp conspiracy theories as truth and come to the conclusion the authorities that day were cold blooded killers. Deep down you all know it was his own fault. First, he should have never taken over the land. Then he shouldn't have ran.
Funny, when an unarmed black person is killed the same people will say they deserved it because they should have listened to the officers. But now, we got white people breaking the law left and right yet somehow it's the officers fault. Funny how that works.

The only time you'll see certain folk supporting the cops is when they're shooting white libertarians.

So ATS do you all think the Feds are going to shoot the State assemblywoman Michele Fiore and other lawmakers?
How do think this will end?
