No. Although stories like that are mostly overblown BS as well, that's for another thread..
'Clearly' because there's recorded footage for anyone to look at showing the guy standing safely with his hands in the air and not being shot....
...until he changed his mind and reaches his arm for his jacket pocket at which point he was put down. (and also firearm was found to be in that same pocket he wa reaching for).
The other occupants of the van weren't complying with the FBI either despite many clear orders but they all got taken into custody anyway because they never pulled any firearms. Only Finicum who deserved it.
Suicide by cop. They would have taken him, they were giving him the chance to surrender but in the end, shot him in self defense. See for yourself.
So he was killed by an Oregon State trooper. That shot was very similar to most of the black lives matter idiots who have been killed by cops. Disobey the cops, make a sketchy move, pay the price.
Also, an FBI agent fired 2 shots into the roof of their truck before he got out. Lied about it, picked up the shells and tried to cover it up, was indicted a year later.
A passenger in the truck was struck by one of those shots, either shrapnel or piece of the truck itself. The metal is still lodged in his body.
I wonder if the people calling these ranchers terrorists would say the same thing about black lives matter. BLM has burned their own fair share of public and private land. BLM has occupied public lands. BLM has created dangerous situations that led to innocent people being harmed or losing their lives.
Nice of Trump to pardon the 2 ranchers who were in prison. Not much different than Obama pardoning drug dealers I suppose. Everyone looks out for their own kind.
