As we here at TellMeNow reported last night, the Oregon occupation of a federal building ended last night after a shoot out with the FBI. Eight people, including Ammon Bundy, have been arrested and one person is now dead.
Since the incident occurred, new details have been released about the individual who was shot.
News 3 Las Vegas reported:
Shots were fired after FBI agents, Oregon State troopers and other law enforcement agencies made the stop on US Highway 395.
Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox and Ryan W. Payne were arrested during the stop. Joseph Donald O’Shaughnessy and online talk-show radio host Peter Santilli were arrested in Burns. Jon Ritzheimer was arrested after surrendering to authorities in his home state of Arizona.
All of them are facing federal felony charges of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties, through the use of force, intimidation or threats.
LaVoy Finicum, an outspoken member of the armed group who would often speak at news conferences in place of Bundy, was shot and killed during the confrontation. Ryan Bundy suffered a non-life threatening injury in the shooting.
Another outlet reported:
LaVoy Finicum — the Oregon militant who gained fame for conducting a television interview from beneath a blue tarp — was shot and killed by law enforcement officers.
The Arizona rancher, who was caring for 11 foster children with his wife, vowed at the start of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Preserve that he was willing to die for his interpretation of the U.S. Constitution.
Finicum was quoted as having said, “I have been raised in the country all my life. I love dearly to feel the wind on my face. To see the sun rise, to see the moon. I have no intention of spending any of my days in a concrete box.”
As tragic as this incident is, the left-wing media is already glowing with joy over what has happened. They are already claiming that Bundy and his team were “right wing terrorists.”
Please pray for Finicum’s family during this rough time.
