Oregon militant LaVoy Finicum can be seen constantly telling authorities to shoot him instead of giving himself up in newly-released video taken on the day he died, Talking Points Memo reported.
The video, taken from the cell phone of fellow militant Shawna Cox, shows Finicum yelling at authorities after their vehicle was stopped outside the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Finicum insists that, rather than turn himself in, he is going to a community meeting in the nearby town of John Day.
“Go ahead, put your bullet through me,” he says.
Finicum then drives away from the scene of the encounter until he and his companions reach a roadblock. He can then be seen getting out of the vehicle and yelling, “Go ahead and shoot me! You’re going to have to shoot me!” before gunshots can be heard. The gunfire also shatters the windshields as his passengers duck.
Officials originally showed the video last week to prove that Finicum was shot as he reached for a weapon of his own.
Watch the footage, as posted online by the Oregonian, below.
Trump explains why he wants to buy Greenland to reporters: ‘It’s a large real estate deal — a lot can be done’
President Donald Trump reaffirmed his desire to buy Greenland in discussion with reporters Sunday.
The president was returning to Washington, D.C. when he stopped at the airport in Morristown, New Jersey. New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman asked the president about his desire to buy the country from Denmark.
"Greenland, I don't know. It got released somehow," Trump said of the news about his desire to buy the country. "It's something we talked about. Denmark essentially owns it. We're very good allies with Denmark. We protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world. So the concept came up, and I said, strategically, it's interesting. And we'd be interested. We'll talk to them a little bit. It's not number one on the burner; I can tell you that."

Lawmaker Rashida Tlaib calls for boycott of Bill Maher’s ‘Real Time’ over Israel comments
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., suggested a boycott against HBO host Bill Maher after he denounced the international movement to boycott Israel as a "bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class."
This article first appeared on Salon.
"Maybe folks should boycott his show," Tlaib wrote in a tweet on Saturday. "I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now."
