‘You’re going to have to shoot me’: Cell phone video shows LaVoy Finicum’s last moments

Published

on

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.

Published

on

On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) broke down how Rudy Giuliani's misconduct in Ukraine is "inseparable" from President Donald Trump's.

"To everyone who asks whether we are moving too quickly, I say the president's lawyer is moving quickly to continue to ask a foreign government to cheat our elections, and doing nothing is completely off the table," said Swalwell, who sits on the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, the two most crucial committees in the impeachment inquiry. "We have to secure our elections. We have powerful, uncontradicted evidence now. And now is the time to hold the president accountable and determine just which impeachment articles we should proceed with."
