I’m really hoping that there is good video of the arrests last night (and whatever is going to happen at the refuge). Yeah, there will be a few dead-enders who refuse to believe anything contrary to what they want to believe, but most people can be convinced by clear video evidence.

As careful and restrained as LE has been so far, I am betting they are carefully documenting everything. Hope I am right.

I believe he was referring to the Bundy’s original demand back in Nov. that the Hammond’s not having to return to jail, not the refuge occupation

The Vicious Babushka  Jan 27, 2016 • 11:28:08am

Oregonlive has Victoria Sharp (the previously unidentified 18-year-old) account.

The teenager had traveled to the refuge last week with her mother and six of her siblings to sing religious and patriotic songs. Sharp said she was in the other car — separate from McConnell — because she planned to sing at the community meeting in John Day late Tuesday afternoon.

Sharp said that Finicum was driving to the meeting and that Ryan Payne was in the passenger seat. She said she was sitting in the back seat between Ryan Bundy and Shawna Cox.

Sharp didn’t immediately return a Facebook message seeking comment.

In a 12-minute audio-only video on YouTube, Sharp said that after they were stopped by police, Payne was trying to get her and Cox safely out of the car when police took their first shot.

“He put his hands out the window, he was trying to talk with them,” said Sharp, who was raised in Kansas but lists on her Facebook page that she is currently living in Montana.

“Ryan (Payne) said, ‘We have women in the car, let the women out,” she said, “He stuck his head out and they shot at him… but they missed him.”

Sharp said that they began to realize that the police “meant business” and that Finicum, who was driving, yelled that he was going to continue driving so that he could “talk to the sheriff.”

“He drove and we all got down on the floorboards and they just started firing at us, shooting at us a bunch of times,” she said, adding that Finicum reached the roadblock and his truck rammed into a snowbank.

With the car running, she said, Finicum “got out of the car and he had his hands in the air and he was like, ‘Just shoot me then, just shoot me.’”

If she was “down on the floorboards” dodging bullets then how could she see Finicum’s position?

Just saying her story is not consistent.

I told my spouse we were watching the growth of a right wing propaganda myth in real time, and that as an academic matter it was fascinating.

What is terrifying is that unstable people with guns believe it and will always believe it no matter what evidence is produced to the contrary.

The problem with all of that is that this is a heavily armed crew. If he got behind a snowbank, that could be cover to shooting LEO. It’s not like he’s some unarmed kid walking down the street. They’ve repeatedlarmy indicated that they are heavily armed and, Finicum specifically, stated he would rather die than be taken into custody.

That all makes him a very dangerous person.

re: #45 The Vicious Babushka

Sounds like a typical eyewitness report. Lots of supposition, bad memory, inconstant claims.

I’m remembering the book Killer by ‘Joey’. ‘Joey’ was a mob hitter.

He related one of his hits. He walked into a busy restaurant during lunch, plugged his target and walked out again.

‘Joey’ got to see the report on his hit later. Thirty people saw him. Not a single description matched him.

Eyewitnesses are not very observant for the most part.

Yeah, expect the dumbasses to start snarling & biting at each other now. They have their little fantasy worlds, and when things don’t turn out like they do in Red Dawn or Commando, they won’t abandon their conviction that they are the star of the movie. They’ll just start blaming everyone else.

Ladies and gentlemen. The party of personal responsibility and rugged individualism. Whining and running their mouths.

Anyone who’s spent time around dimwitted drama queen white trash will recognize this behavior immediately.
