A video posted to YouTube on Tuesday by the Oregonian shows the shooting of LaVoy Finicum from two angles, including from inside the truck Finicum was driving.
According to the Oregonian, the video was shown at a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office press conference on Tuesday. The aerial FBI video of the shooting has been synched with a cellphone video Shauna Cox recorded from within Finicum’s truck.
The video speaks for itself. The shooting starts at about the 6:00 minute mark:
As the video shows, officers kept shooting the truck even after Finicum was gunned down.
This video clearly lines up with what two eyewitnesses earlier said about the encounter.
According to the Daily Caller, the DOJ is now investigating five agents for allegedly covering up the details of Finicum’s shooting:
One of the FBI agents allegedly lied about firing twice on Finicum, who was shot to death in the course of an attempted arrest related to the militia’s occupation of federal land. Four other agents allegedly helped that agent cover up the lie, reported the Oregonian.
Authorities revealed the investigation Tuesday, as a team of local investigators released new details about the shooting. A member of the Hostage Rescue Team allegedly failed to report the two shots in question, officials said, although neither bullet actually hit Finicum.
Investigators did not specify exactly why the other four unnamed agents are under investigation, except to say it’s related to alleged misconduct after the shooting. DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is heading up the investigation.
The question now is, will anything be done, or will it get covered up?
