:08 seconds – LaVoy Finicum strikes an officer who had jumped out infront of Finicum’s vehicle. Perhaps the officer wanted to force Finicum to swerve, or maybe the officer thought the car he was standing in front of was going to be struck by Finicum’s vehicle.
:12 seconds – LaVoy Finicum exits the vehicle with his hands raised high in the air.
:17 seconds – A 2nd officer approaches Finicum from the direction of the downed officer with his weapon drawn.
The 2nd officer stumbles through the snow as he approaches Finicum and his hands move up and down in a way that suggest his weapon may have discharged either intentionally or unintentionally.
Finicum lowers his hands, perhaps to hold his wound, and is shot by a 3rd officer from the left of the screen.
If these observations are accurate, that’s manslaughter at best, murder at worst.
Where’s the dashcam and bodycam footage?? The DOJ insists every local force should have them.
Do they practice what they preach?
