We’re Watching

WE NEED TO SHARE THIS EVERY WHERE!

When the PIO for Deschutes County Sheriff said in the press briefing that the roadblock could be seen from 862 feet with plenty of time to stop, I saw a lie.

Having been there several times viewing, driving it, and studying it, It was obvious to me they were issuing another false narrative. I’ll add some video view at 70 mph later but just looking at the still shots, it’s pretty easy to tell that the roadblock wasn’t really visible until he closed within 386 feet of the ambush.

His Brake lights come on at the Horse Camp Jct. when he see’s the Roadblack. At nearly the same time shots ring out and strike his vehicle three times.

There are four distinct landmarks that I referenced and the distances are as follows;
1. The pullout – This is on the East side of the Hwy just as he enters the turn at 9:06 in the attached FBI video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAGxDWKrjPQ
At this location, in contrast with the DSCO press release the Road block is NOT visible at all. Standing still in the middle of the roadway, you can barely make out the second sign (Southbound sign) to the Joaquin miller Camp. It’s harder to see in the video because of the snow but its the dark spot on the shoulder at 9:06 in the video.

2. The First Joaquin Miller sign – For Northbound traffic, this is the first sign you see in the video. It is 574 ft from the roadblack. From this vantage point, standing in the center of the road, you can aarely make out my Black SUV parked on the left (Southbound) shoulder. It’s very difficult to see and the park lights were on. While driving it is not really visible and his brake lights are still not on at this location

3. Horse Camp entrance – The entrance to the Camp is at 386 ft from the roadblock and it is at this jct. that he begins to apply brakes. The roadblock location is somewhat visible at this point.
4. The second Sign – This is the Southbound sign on the west side of the hwy. As you see in the video, he applies his brakes midway between the first sign (574 ft) and the second sign (250 ft)
directly in front of the entrance to the camp (386 ft.)

The Sheriff PIO also stated that the OSP police van following him at the same speed of 70 MPH was able to stop with no problems.
This is a ludicrous statement because he obviously had the advantage of KNOWING about the roadblock and seeing the brake lights on the vehicle ahead of him.

This was a very insulting statement as was the one of 862 feet visibility.
It’s clear what their doing, simply putting the lies out there and a vast number will believe it because he’s an “Official” with a shiny piece of tin on his lapel.

Many however, are beginning to see and understand what the game is. They put it out there and people accept it as gospel regardless of truth or accuracy they believe they can do whatever they wish and explain it away with misinformation.

I had hoped as many of you did that our distinguished members of law enforcement would tell the truth and give us facts. Instead, they gave us misinformation and TRIED to lead us astray.

Once again, this deadmans roadblock is illegal use of deadly force prior to any of the shooting events. They clearly violated his 4 th amendment rights with illegal search and seizure methods and in my opinion gave him and the occupants of the truck lawful ability to defend themselves.

They also fired 3 shots at him in their estimation at the location of the second sign. It appears further back to me but I cant measure their timing as I don”t believe that the videos are properly synchronized.

More details later, but this should debunk their claims of 862 feet, it was less than half that amount. It appear they are using stationery methods of visibility from the right shoulder of the road straining to see some object at the roadblock location.
Mr. Finicum was not stationery nor was he on the east shoulder, he was clearly on the incoming side of the centerline and moving at a brisk 70 mph and watching his rearview mirror to see if they were continuing to shoot from behind as they had already done.

Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich Would Have You Believe YOU Are The Enemy!

 

Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich in Spokane county, Washington walks all over those who he swore to protect and serve.
Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich in Spokane county, Washington walks all over those whom he swore to protect and serve.

Dear Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich (spokesman for tyranny), your tyrant pigs aren’t called peace officers anymore, as they escalate situations and provoke danger. Cops haven’t helped to de-escalate situations since the 80’s. They are trained to fear for their lives and live in that fear on a daily basis making them more of a radical extremist than any of the constitutionalists you are waging war with. In fact, SCOTUS has ruled that pig cops don’t have to protect citizens anymore. I don’t even know who is more tyrannical these days. You, seeking to go after people who legally can stock pile their weapons as law abiding citizens? Or SCOTUS, for allowing cops to run rapid like wolves with rabies, with their egos set on high alert, while walking all over the citizens they swore to protect, but instead demonize, hurt, kill, rape, and torture, all while not being held accountable to any reprimand? God forbid evil cops even spend one day in jail as tyrants tend to set them free….Cop lives are not worth anymore or any less than the people they swore an oath too. And you’re the kind of tyrant who would set them free.

It sounds like you are trying to sell us a war against ourselves? I just listened to you for 2 hours trying to use emotion to convince us that the answer to people wanting to be free from government intrusion is to make them the enemy??? Most people just want to be left alone. I will tell you right now that I am peaceful, but if an armed individual approaches me attempting to generate revenue through extortion I would think that he was the aggressor… how could I be the aggressor just because I am pulled over submitting to the emergency light? I am waiting for my chance to use litigation in federal district court to help you realize what it really costs when you have your organization unnecessarily escalating your revenue generating (and also unconstitutional) “traffic stops”. I don’t care if you redefine “constitutionalist” or “patriot” to “violent racist extremist”… but I see what you are trying to do there.

I’ve already given you my opinion on the Sheriff and his positions, if you want to read more about that, you can check out my previous post on the subject. The topic of discussion here will be the so-called “myth of police militarization.”

Criminal Justice Professor Peter B. Kraska defines police militarization as “the process whereby civilian police increasingly draw from, and pattern themselves around, the tenets of militarism and the military model.” So basically, a militarized police would strive to appear and act more like soldiers and less like peace officers.

In November of 2013, the Washington Post reported that “165 of the MRAP trucks were distributed” to local police departments. In June of 2014, around the same time that Sheriff Knezovich was giving his presentation about the “true threats” facing local communities, the New York Times reported that “according to Pentagon data, police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.” Sounds to me like they have all the same tools an army would have, but just because they have all the same things the military does, that doesn’t mean they use it the same way, right?

The LA Times reported earlier this month on findings by the Police Foundation regarding what they called an “excessive” and “unnecessary” use of force displayed by Stockton police in July of 2014. During their pursuit of bank robbers “32 officers unloaded more than 600 rounds during the hour-long rolling gun battle, which spanned three counties, 63 miles of highway and reached speeds of 120 mph“. In their defense, 14 police vehicles were disabled during the chase, but because of their actions, one of the hostages was struck by ten of the rounds coming from police. Investigators found that some officers engaged in “sympathetic fire” meaning that the only reason they shot their guns was because others were doing the same. That’s what’s called a mob-mentality and it’s not an uncommon experience during military operations.

The most talked about example of military-style tactics being used by police in recent history is what happened in Ferguson. CNN was just one of the news outlets that reported on what took place there.According to their report, police in Ferguson opened fire on the crowd. They attacked civilians and reporters with rubber bullets, pepper bullets, tear gas and stun grenades. No matter what you think about the events surrounding Ferguson, tear gas is considered a chemical weapon and it’s use is strictly prohibited in warfare by the Geneva Protocol. Technically these restraints don’t apply to local police, but that doesn’t mean we should accept this treatment.

Final Thoughts

There are plenty of examples of excessive force by police. Another common problem is the training these officers receive. It’s obvious that they are being taught a shoot-first mentality where the ends justify the means. This is not the way it’s supposed to be. I don’t think we should totally disarm police, but there needs to be some restraint. Even more important is accountability. It probably comes as no surprise that the officers in Stockton and Ferguson didn’t face any severe punishment – that’s a problem.

Sheriff Knezovich would have you believe that police militarization is a myth – something made up by anti-government conspiracy theorists. It’s as clear as day to anyone who chooses to recognize the truth. It’s admitted that the police are given military surplus and we can tell by their actions that they intend to use it. My fear is that things will have to get much worse before they get any better.

The police are being told that we, the people are the enemy. The people are being told by the media that the police are the enemy. The truth is that both groups are being played off against each other. If we really want to get past all this, the people and the police have to come together and find common ground. We all want to live peaceful lives. I don’t believe that anyone wants to live in a vicious police state, even those who would be on the enforcement side of it, but that’s exactly what we’ll get if we don’t recognize our common humanity. Denying there’s a problem only makes it worse.

Your Story Just Doesn’t Add Up FBI…

The FBI had a press conference today… here is what they said:

And it really just doesn’t add up. Watch this short video:

And then this video is very exposing, showing the feds were preparing to create bloodshed to keep their illegal stranglehold over the people and land. They didnt care about a peaceful resolution, they were preparing to murder people:

Read this statement put out yesterday by the Finicum family:

The purpose of this statement is to supplement the statement we issued earlier. It does not contradict our previous statement, but only serves to supplement, support and add detail to our previous position.

At this point, based on the additional information we have now received, it is our position that not only was the shooting death of LaVoy Finicum completely unjustified, but that the FBI and Oregon State Police may also be engaging in a cover-up, and seeking to manipulate and mislead the media and the American public about what really happened.

Officers started shooting at LaVoy’s vehicle and the people in it right from the outset, even at the very first stop.
Officers started shooting at LaVoy’s vehicle and the people in it right from the outset, even at the very first stop.

We realize this may sound like a bold statement, but now that Shawna Cox, who was a passenger in LaVoy’s vehicle, and an eye witness, has been released from custody, we have now had the opportunity to hear yet another account, and the ability to start crossreferencing all currently available information to figure out what really happened. This has shed important additional light on the whole ordeal — especially when Cox is given the opportunity to essentially narrate what is happening in the video, from an eye witness standpoint.

It is our position that under the guise of claimed transparency, the FBI was very quick to release a very grainy, edited video, along with their interpretation of what they claimed it showed, without any audio overlay, in an effort to attempt to try to make the first impression on this issue, and seek to sway public opinion from the outset.
