No matter what you think about the standoff in Oregon, this video shows rancher LaVoy Finicum was a man who was just trying to get by. All he wanted to do was feed and water his cows, and to take care of his family. It is stunningly heartbreaking that a man who merely wanted to keep his livestock fed and watered was shot down in a dispute over the federal government’s totalitarian control of public land.
If you know the story of the “Oregon Standoff,” this video will make you cry. A good man, who just wanted to feed his cattle, was gunned down in Oregon, standing up to a government that stole water meant for his livestock. He was so angry with a government that made his already hard life, harder, he took a stand. This is the plight of ranchers across America who are barely subsisting under the Obama administration.
Share this video liberally. Our government killed a good man. A man who was just trying to get by, and who was just trying to take care of his family.
Rest in peace, LaVoy, rest in peace.
