Officials: Shooting of Oregon occupier LaVoy Finicum justified


(CNN) -

An investigation into the shooting death of Oregon protester LaVoy Finicum found that the shots officers fired were justified, "and, in fact, necessary," Malheur County District Attorney Dan Norris said in a news conference Tuesday.

[Original story published at 11:41 p.m. ET]

The final moments of LaVoy Finicum are expected to be revisited Tuesday when Oregon authorities give an update on the investigation into his shooting death. Finicum was the lone armed occupier of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to die at law enforcement's hands in the 41-day standoff.

Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson and Malheur County District Attorney Dan Morris are set to hold a joint news conference Tuesday in Bend, Oregon, on the January 26 shooting of Finicum, the sheriff's office said.

The occupation of part of the federal wildlife refuge ended peacefully February 11 when the last four occupiers surrendered to authorities. They'd once been among a larger group who took over the refuge's headquarters in a defiant protest of federal land policies. They decried the arson convictions of father-and-son ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond (though the Hammonds insisted they didn't want help from the occupiers, led by Ammon Bundy.)

For weeks, authorities positioned themselves outside a Malheur National Wildlife Refuge building near Burns -- not charging in to get the occupiers but not giving them a free pass to stay or easily leave either.

Some of the occupiers insisted that they planned to stay as long as it took and that they were prepared to die.

Finicum was the only one who did.

No new surprises and the police were justified given the totality of circumstances.

Thoughts?

I'm not seeing any links to official sources for the "investigation" cited.

Hmmmm.

I bet there's more holes in the story than in Swiss Cheese.

(CNN) -

The investigation into the death of LaVoy Finicum, killed during the occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in January, shows that the three fatal shots fired by Oregon State Police were justified "and, in fact, necessary," Malheur County District Attorney Dan Norris said Tuesday.


They are using a district attorney from another county, just as they used law enforcement from a different county to investigate the shooting. The DA and the investigating police agencies are also from different counties.

Results of LaVoy Finicum death investigation released Tuesday

Sure it does.. Mine is based on fact and an understanding of the law where as yours is based on personal opinion and a lack of knowledge / understanding about the law.

That is backed up by the investigative and DA results.

I wouldn't go hootin and hollerin in joy.

Keep in mind this happened before this presidential election woke up the sleeping colony of lemmings. Now look at how desperate the controlling powers are now that none of their "chosen" are being taken seriously anymore!

I am more cautious now on how much more heavier that boot on our neck is going to get.

Cheer in joy for the gestapo if you wish, but don't be surprised in the future......

This has nothing to do with elections. This has nothing to do with the 2 people sent back to prison to finish their sentence who stated they dont want the Bundys "assistance" and that they were not speaking for them. Considering the Bundys have gone on record saying they dont recognize the federal government in addition to telling media they never used the courts to seek redress for their grievances because they dont trust them....

Are you and the others fully informed about the beliefs and actions of the Bundy's and the militia supporters?

We already knew the outcome of their investigation before the investigation started.

It's like asking bank robbers to investigate themselves and summit a report.

True... but then again, anybody who has the most basic ability of interpreting commonsense logic, knew what the outcome of LaVoy jumping out of the vehicle like he did would be, after deliberately trying to evade the authorities.

You can't claim he wasn't fully aware of what the consequences of his actions would be... unless of course, your claiming he was mentally challenged?

Those people familiar with the law and profession knew the outcome.

Those not ask irrelevant questions, latch onto irrelevant info or try to make comparisons based on their ignorance, like bank robbers investigating themselves. Considering the FBI nor OSP nor the county sheriff where this occurred investigated your comparison is fail. Considering the DA for another county was assigned your comparison is fail.

Once again demonstrating your willful ignorance.

In all fairness X, we are on a conspiracy site, that has had many, many posts, showing officers basically getting away with murder.
So it is getting harder and harder to believe them, when these shootings are declared "justified".

Now, if they would actually release more video than just the drone, then they would be believed, right? If any exists.

Conspiracies are fine but when nothing is offered to support their conspiracies it becomes less of a conspiracy and more of an uneducated excuse.

As for the release of police investigative material its one of the exemptions for federal foia, not to mention you have people charged with crimes who were present / arrested at the shooting scene.

Their rights outweigh the publics right to know everything that occurred.

And if true, this information sure doesn't make the findings look legit.

Except for the fact only OSP officers fired a total of 8 shots.

Ok
So maybe this was released, to take the heat off the officers, because the blame of any wrong doing SHOULD be on the FBI.
So in that case, the officers didn't do anything wrong. The big boys did.
