The family of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, the Arizona rancher who was shot dead last month during a confrontation with FBI agents and Oregon state police, was notified Thursday that they owe the City of Burns $500 for “ambulance advance life support” and mileage for LaVoy’s ambulance ride to a medical center. The city of Burns’ assistant law director filed the claim in Harney County Probate Court this morning.
An attorney representing the Finicum family issued the statement: “The callousness, insensitivity, and poor judgment of Harney County and the City of Burns to send a bill after its own officers murdered their loving family member is truly sickening.” A source close to the family said they were “mortified” by the total “lack of empathy” of the city’s claim.
There are just no words for this. None.
Just rage. Outrage. OUTRAGE.
What’s more outrageous than having a police officer shoot an unarmed 12-year-old, failing to provide medical care, keeping his family forcibly from the scene, and then declining to indict the officer for the death? In most cases, little. But the city of Cleveland has found a way: It is suing Tamir Rice’s family for not paying the ambulance bill after a Cleveland cop shot and killed the boy in November 2014.

It would be my honor to pay that bill.
