BTR News w/ Scotty Reid welcomes author, social media creator, and self-care advocate M.J. Fievre about her recent book series "Badass Black Girl".
The FBI has released video footage of the shooting death of LaVoy Finicum, a spokesperson for the militants occupying a federal refuge in Oregon over what they deemed a fight for land which actually belongs to neither the white settler class demanding the land nor the federal government but it belongs to The Burns Paiute tribe of Oregon who were victims of a US government land grab as it manifest-destinied itself across North America leaving a genocidal wake in their path.
Various reports stated that Finicum had his hands up when he was shot down in a hail of hundreds of bullets like Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell were killed in Cleveland in 2012 by police. One of the militant occupiers, Jason Patrick, tried to compare the shooting to what happened to Tamir Rice, the 12 yr-old shot within 2 seconds of police contact. None of these comparisons are accurate according to the video.
It does appear that after speeding towards a roadblock manned by officers, crashing into a snow bank, Finicum has his hands raised in the air as he exited the vehicle as if he was giving up but it also appears he reached for something as he was walking towards the road before he was shot from behind by someone stationed behind him in the treeline.
Greg Bretzing, a special agent in charge of the FBI’s Portland division, said, “He did have a loaded 9 mm semi-automatic handgun in that pocket.”
