Retired Oregon Police Officer Comments on LaVoy Finicum’s Murder

April 20, 2016 in News by RBN Staff

by Dirk Williams, Oregon Police Officer (ret)

There is zero doubt regarding the murder of LaVoy Finicum that OSP and FBI HRT, set this up, a kill box. Due diligence, I AM a retired Oregon Police Officer, from two counties away. While from a grand jury standpoint, this murder was never going to see the inside of a court room for criminal charges, that’s just how police shootings work, I DO NOT AGREE with the white washing of Justice.
In reviewing the Deschutes County Reports, I’ve never read such garbage. Specifically, Officer #1 stating all OSP SWAT had been called to HQ in Salem Or, and briefed on the” anti United Nations” position of Grant County and many Malheur County citizens, that there existed an anti-United Nations authority sentiment.
I’m appalled. Shouldn’t EVERY US citizen be anti UN, operating within the
United States of America. This is simply astounding. To think that our State Police were actually called in and briefed on what their political positions should be.
Shot three times in The Back while maybe reaching for a gun.
Listen I’m unaware of ANY situation in which the police can set a road block in a poorly placed location, on a curve and leave I think the report said 360 feet of roadway to stop a vehicle traveling at 70 mph.
And THEN shoot at the vehicle” because you were afraid for your life. Since when can the Police create a set of ” Expedient Circumstances ” and then use that created deadly situation to fire on a moving vehicle. Without consequences.

Had LaVoy been a threat and intended to kill police officers, then ramming the hasty road block would have accomplished that quickly. LaVoy did a fantastic job of missing the road block and getting stopped WITHOUT, causing injury to the police. His actions demonstrated his intent to NOT INJURE others.
HRT policing their brass. Concealing evidence. I’m appalled, and to recently learn that these same FBI HRT. Members are still actively on duty, in Langley, simply adds to the clear intent of this murder.
Sadly I recognize that the FBI’s actions are a “Learned” behavior. We will eventually learn that the FBI have been taught/ instructed to recover their brass, and that this will not have been the first time FBI HRT, has committed this crime of, crime scene tampering.
We will learn that this tactic is an ongoing event, that multiple crime scenes throughout the United States.
I am appalled. I did 24/25 years and have never seen such madness, what has happened, is it recruitment issues, or is it training issues. We live in a small community, and even locally the city police are looking like storm troopers, vest, M4’s on calls.
Many of my past associates privately agree that law enforcement is changing, evolving into something never intended. Sadly their trapped 20 years in and to reach retirement they must do 25 or until their 55. They feel trapped, because they are trapped.
In closing I would share this. I know many men who were sent to Burns Oregon to assist. I know some of the OSP SWAT members, and have argued my view of the Murder of LaVoy Finicum. While we were not in agreement, and. I’m sure I damaged long relationships.
I cannot stand by and NOT call this Murder exactly what it was. I cannot Speak up, in fact I feel I have a duty to step up and call this sad, sad event exactly what it is, a murder of a fellow US Citizen.
I pity my fellow retired officers who clearly recognize what has happened, yet do zero about it. Saying nothing.
Not standing up, Not speaking out especially as a retired, or active police officer, is excepting the breakdown of law enforcement within the US.
Honesty, Integrity , Loyalty to We The People, IS what being a Police Officer is all about.
In closing I would like to share this Pearl. About 14 years ago the SCOTUS, handed down a finding, a definition of how/ what police duties are. It goes something like this.
The duty of the Police is to investigate, and arrest. SCOTUS, states that The Police have zero duty to protect citizens from harm or death.
When I read this SCOTUS definition I was heartbroken, ” no duty to protect” WTF.
In a class I attended the instructor clearly defined that finding to mean this.
It is the duty of the Police to protect the infrastructure, from the people. Not the duty to protect the people from the infrastructure. Folks Please READ this part again, and again until you understand exactly how this game is rigged.
LaVoy Finicum had become the de facto leader of a FREEDOM movement. A natural born leader, no bravado, no threats of violence, however he was a threat to the INFRASTRUCTURE, for that, he was murdered by the Oregon State Police.

Here is a comment on this that was received by the blog admin by email but was too long to publish in the comments section below:

There is an important point within the writing.  It tears me up because it seems no one pays attention.  Back when I was writing for several sites, one of my main concerns about law enforcers that are nothing more in fact than the American Gestapo, is the fact that most that speak out are already retired.  They do not speak out, in other words, until they receive their retirement.  The Code of Silence rules them until then, meaning the protection of other officers of other enforcers, along with their pay checks, are more important than the rights of the people and their duty to their fellow Americans.  They are, simply put, no longer the peace officers police were meant to be., but de facto enforcers of de facto governments that took over the de jure government through force and every other means of coercion.  Judges support them, as do attorneys (officers of the courts), federal, state, and local officials, and, sadly, most of our people – – until they experience or someone in their family or circle of friends experiences some totally violent or other uncalled for aggression.
I wonder now just how many of them actually knows what their Oath of Office means, or even if most are even pledging the duty to America and Americans.  If they are affirming or subscribing to it, they damned sure do not know what it means.  I do, and that is why I wrote this.  I took the Oath 53 years ago, and have always fought for out inherent rights, as did most policeman until perhaps the 1970s.  Now, they along with their bosses in the government that hired them to enforce their rules and regulations unconstitutional to the people, rather than just the corporations, such as the chartered government itself.
I do not expect you to publish this, so I am also sending it the source of the article.  And, I sincerely hope that others know I am glad that a few retirees are speaking out.  So, don’t misunderstand.  I simply cannot stomach people that know fellow officers do not obey the Constitution meant to protect our God given inherent rights, and do not arrest the offenders for assault, kidnapping, unlawful arrests (lacking a 5th Amendment indictment), threat with a deadly weapon, attempt to kill or to kill, theft (unlawful seizure of private property), extortion (fines for acts that we have the inherent right to engage in), property damage (knocking down doors, etc), unlawful and absolutely unconstitutional NO KNOCK entries risking not only the lives of those inside but also of other officers when all one has to do is stake out the domicile and wait. unlawful searches, and the list goes on on the many crimes against God’s laws this land of ours was founded on, and the inherent inalienable cannot be regulated rights of the people, which means so long as a man., woman, or child is not interfering with the rights of others, he is good to go.
By the way, for any enforcers that might have the opportunity to read this, murder is murder and no government official or officials can approve it.  I guarantee you that if a group of people got together and agreed to kill an enforcer that violated multiple regulations and interfered with a bunch of people’s inherent rights, you would scream like stuck pigs for justice and hunt them down, with them never seeing the inside of a court room.
Justice means, though, that each receives his due, but for you all, it as if the exact opposite, injustice, is what is served by current enforcers, attorneys, and judges.  Why not go after an enforcer or enforcers that act as judge, jury, and executioner, or should I say “assassin”?  Are most that think that would be righteous, do you not realize the hidden government could not do anything if every official and their hired enforcers obeyed without question and applying those crimes against the person to everyone equally, including other enforcers, that the problems faced today between enforcers and the people would disappear.  Corrupt cops, including sheriffs, chiefs of police, and down through the ranks, and including the military, would do as many of us try to do – defend America instead of attacking its very foundation.  They work work as hard to return us to the real America rather than this God-forsaking foreign banker controlled, lawless acting government that we might call Gestapo Ameri-Ka.
