Family of Oregon Protester Killed by FBI Receives Medical Bill

The family of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, the Arizona rancher who was shot dead last month during a confrontation with FBI agents and Oregon state police, was notified Thursday that they owe the City of Burns $500 for “ambulance advance life support” and mileage for LaVoy’s ambulance ride to a medical center. The city of Burns’ assistant law director filed the claim in Harney County Probate Court this morning.




An attorney representing the Finicum family issued the statement: “The callousness, insensitivity, and poor judgment of Harney County and the City of Burns to send a bill after its own officers murdered their loving family member is truly sickening.” A source close to the family said they were “mortified” by the total “lack of empathy” of the city’s claim.

LaVoy was the spokesman and spiritual leader of the patriot group Citizens for Constitutional Freedom that occupied the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in a peaceful protest over the illegal prison sentences of fellow ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond, and the federal overreach of land rights under the U.S. Constitution.

Finicum was the only casualty in the 41 day protest that ended today after the four remaining patriot activists surrendered peacefully without incident.

LaVoy will be remembered as a man who loved his family, his God, and his country. His Utah funeral last week was attended by thousands of mourners from across the country, all dressed in their Sunday best, all there to pay respect to a man who gave his life for freedom. Finicum’s family invoked their deep faith and quoted from scripture as they described him as a man of courage and conviction.

He was born Jan. 27th, 1961 in Kanab, UT, and was murdered the day before his 55th birthday. All requests for comment from law officials have so far gone unanswered.

You can take a look at the entire claim below:

  1. That’s how it works. Seriously doubt that is a drop in the bucket compared to what those people cost the taxpayers with their treasonous behavior.

    • It’s treasonous when it’s something YOU don’t agree with. NOT treasonous if you do, right? Is that how that works? Yeah. Gotcha.

    • So did the Baltimore and Ferguson rioters get a bill for their treasonous behavior?

        please cite where any of them stated they do not recognize the government, during their actions.

          Yes. I just posted a story a couple of days ago where the family of one of the black men murdered by cops was billed quite a sum of money. I’m sure you could find it if you googled. (I surely do hate racist idiots.)

    • Who can say SHEEPLE? Perhaps you better look up the Definition of Treason – In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s sovereign or nation.[1] Historically, treason also covered the murder of specific social superiors, such as the murder of a husband by his wife or that of a master by his servant. Treason against the king was known as high treason and treason against a lesser superior was petty treason. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.

      Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as “…[a]…citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].” In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aiding or involved by such an endeavor.

      Outside legal spheres, the word “traitor” may also be used to describe a person who betrays (or is accused of betraying) his own political party, nation, family, friends, ethnic group, team, religion, social class, or other group to which he may belong. Often, such accusations are controversial and disputed, as the person may not identify with the group of which he is a member, or may otherwise disagree with the group members making the charge. See, for example, race traitor, often used by White supremacists, or Black supremacists, or directed at people in inter-racial relationships (cf. miscegenation).

      At times, the term “traitor” has been used as a political epithet, regardless of any verifiable treasonable action. In a civil war or insurrection, the winners may deem the losers to be traitors. Likewise the term “traitor” (like OBAMA & Hilary) is used in heated political discussion – typically as a slur against political dissidents, or against officials in power who are perceived as failing to act in the best interest of their constituents. In certain cases, as with the German Dolchsto ß legende, the accusation of treason towards a large group of people can be a unifying political message. Treason is considered to be different and on many occasions a separate charge from ‘Treasonable Felony’ in many parts of the world.

  2. Send that shit to the feds who murdered him!

  3. I agree. This should have been billed as garbage pickup. Quite insensitive!

  4. Coltronics and Husky…. exactly!

  5. Filing at probate court and going against their credit, with no other notification first? WTF?

  6. They did the same to the family of Tamir Rice, a 12 year old boy with a TOY GUN. Didn’t hear an outcry about that.

    • That was equally tragic, Tamir’s killing, and I did cry out. The media, doesn’t want to show that though, much like they don’t show the outrage at this killing. We should be demanding accountability for both murders. On a side note (not for you Gree) you people having such disgusting things to say about the loss of a human life, after potentially suffering for nearly 1/2 an hour without assistance, make me rather ill, how dare you be so callous? Despite what you feel, this man did no harm to a single other person, nor did he want to. A life, is a life wether you hate ranchers or not. He was a good man. he didnt deserve what happened, just like Tamir didnt deserve what happened. There is a problem folks, and maybe it has something to do with the sick dis-associative mentality ya’ll have for human life.

    He’ll be remembered for a blue tarp and for being the slowest draw in the west.

    • He wasn’t drawing,He wasn’t going for a gun, he got shot and grabbed at the wound… and it looks like he was for a moment trying to get his hands back in the air…kind of hard to do when you are in the process of being gunned down.

    • dumbest comment on this thread REAL WORLD why would a right handed man put a pistol in his left hand COAT pocket then, while he was a good twenty feet from any kind of shelter, surrounded by five men with rifles try to reach into his left hand COAT pocket with his right hand to try and retrieve that weapon?

      • Because if you are right handed it is much easier to cross draw to the left. He was often seen with a left sided shoulder holster (many pics on the web). It looks like an obvious cross-draw to me.

    Good! Those ignorant teabilly freedumbateer bumblefuks are a waste of air. Mooching off the guy mint and stealing from taxpayers is enough. Bill the fuk out of them.

  9. That isn’t anything new. Standard procedure. Do these people live under rocks?

  10. I’m sure they are just as outraged as Tamir Rice’s family was. But, they probably don’t know that Tamir was a 12-yo boy. He hadn’t spent a month in an illegal occupation, terrorized a town, driven through a roadblock, almost hit an officer, and was going for his gun when he was shot.

    And thus always with traitors. there will not be another War of Rebellion. the Republic will endure.

      The cop that lavoy almost hit was the cops fault. WATCH the FBI clip and the cop jumps in front of the truck…Lavoy NEVER threatened anyone and was shot at during the first stop so he ran after being shot at.

    • More like die with a whimper… as there is more and more government overreach and corruption, while the people sit watching tv, absorb government propaganda and call anyone who protests terrorists. Like your steak? Wait till its all coming from factory farms instead of of open range ranchers, and the government decides to ration it.

      • probably tofu steak, if any food is available after the environmental whackos shut down all the farms and ranches in this country.

  12. Terrorist commits Suicide By Cop, his family deserve the bill. They also deserve to receive the bills for any counseling the officers involved may need.

  13. The family should also get a bill for the time lost when employees could not go to their jobs because of the terrorist occupation. They should also be charged for damages to the refuge, and fees incurred for extra law enforcement for these vanilla isis yahoos. Suicide by cop is not the way a “spiritual leader” acts.

  14. HEADLINE: “Finicum’s Family sues law enforcement for letting their father lay for ten minutes in the snow”. (And them pretending he needed an ambulance,

  15. Now I wouldn’t sy spiritual Leader. Are we sure that was his designation?

  16. Some of the peoplw on here have their heads sooooo far up their ass about what creedom is and why the militia stepped in in the first place. Have a good life suckling at the governments tit and being thankfull for scraps. Funny thing is that you are probaly the same people that feel that the American indian was cheated by the government. What the fuck do ypu think this was about????? The BLM (beauro of land management is an UNCONSTITIONAL FEDERAL ENTITY!!!!!

  17. too bad so many of the patriots were waiting on the disability checks and tax refunds from the government, otherwise they would have been their to provide support

    • In 1992, in a place called Ruby Ridge,Idaho, an FBI sniper, Lon Horiuchi, was ordered to take a position where he had a clear view of the home of Randy Weaver, to be very careful not to let anyone know he was there, and to shoot any adult he saw, armed or unarmed. His first shot wounded Randy, his second shot killed Randy’s wife Vicky. Vicky was standing on the front porch of her home, armed with nothing more deadly then a new born baby. The shot that killed her blew her head up , showering her children with her brains and her blood. There are enough clueless morons in this country that didn’t see anything wrong with this, nothing happened to Horiuchi or whoever issued his orders. This is a very similar situation to what is happening here. There are so many people who, just like a dog will lap up his vomit, will simply mindlessly lap up whatever nonsensical story fed to them by the Feds. The guy was going to “cross draw” a gun out of his left hand COAT pocket, with all kind of rifles pointing at him? Try doing something like that in the privacy of your home, while wearing gloves. Just like Lon Horiuchi, sadly, nothing will be done to the vicious killers who brutally murdered this man, for as you can tell by reading comments on this thread and others there are an incredible number of people out there who have no idea what is going on in the real world, couldn’t care less, and will get violently angry if you try to expose them, to reality

  18. There other videos that show agents of sort outside the refuge all unmarked. Unmarked vehicles. It’s been speculated they are UN or IMF AGENTS. Here’s a video of why they killed the great man LaVoy Finnicum. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7g8yfsr7N-E

    There is a special place in hell for the insensitive jerk on this site. Probably the same liberal jerk that think it’s ok to riot and burn a city down. To rob and destroy everything they can get their hands on and protest for criminals and try to convince people they are heros. LaVoy Finicum was a hero a God fearing family living patriotic hero who died protesting for the freedom of others. You jerk who make disparaging comments about a good man what have a clue what’s going on anyway. What would you know about freedom as you lay around every month living off the criminal government. Mind your own business and stick to what you know nothing . I pray Finicum family find the peace and justice they deserve and all you insensitive jerk mind your own business. .

  20. I’m here to tell all who loved the killing of this fine Godly man. Prepare to meet your maker. God will take dare of you. It is written in the Bible.

    • Is that the verse that says “Blessed are those that wallow in martyrbation, for they will truly annoy everyone with their self-righteousness”?

    • Godly? Not likely. Have you read Romans? Ever? Note that in this passage, Paul is speaking of the Roman Empire under Nero.

      Let every soul be subject to higher powers: for there is no power but from God: and those that are, are ordained of God. Therefore he that resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God. AND THEY THAT RESIST, PURCHASE TO THEMSELVES DAMNATION. For princes are not a terror to the good work, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good: and thou shalt have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to thee, for good. But if thou do that which is evil, fear: for he beareth not the sword in vain. For he is God’s minister: an avenger to execute wrath upon him that doth evil. Wherefore be subject of necessity, not only for wrath, but also for conscience’ sake. For therefore also you pay tribute. For they are the ministers of God, serving unto this purpose.

  21. People don’t care until they are directly affected. It’s not their father/husband/son/daughter…..or their back yard…yet. Watch Lou Dobbs most recent show, he knows the score and what is happening with Agenda 21 or Agenda 2030 and the indoctrination of an apathetic people.

  22. SO SAD. I AM SADLY A US CITIZEN I SAY SADLY BECAUSE THIS COUNTRY IS RAN BY DEMONIC PEOPLE THESE DAYS ESPECIALLY IN THE GOVERNMENT. NO BEFORE YOU JUDGE ME, I AM AN OLD LADY WHO IS NOT AN ANTI GOV. ACTIVEST ADN NOTHING OF THE SORT. BUT I DO KNOW WHEN EVIL IS TRYING TO RUN THINGS AND TRYIONG TO DESTROY THE GOOD PEOPLE OF AMERICA LIKE THE OFFICERS THAT BLEW THIS POOR RANCHERS FACE OFF I FRON OF HIS DAUGHTERS. THY NEED TO PUT FORTH A LAWSUIT! SERIOUSLY GOVERNMENT LAND. WHO IN THE HELL IS THE GOVERNMENT “SUPPOSED”YO BE. IN SCHOOL WE WERE TAUGHT THAT IS “WAS” THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. SO ACTUALLY THIS RANCHER AND HIS FRIENDS HAD EVERY RIGHT TO GRAZE THEIR CATTLE THERE. ANYONE WHO CAN NOT SEE THIS IS A SELFISH BASTARD.AND BRAINWASHED AS WELL. OF COURSE IT WASNT ABOUT THE GRAZING GRASS. YOU SEE WHAT THE PUBLUC DOES NOT KNOW BECAUSE HEY ARE BRAINWASHED BY THE NEWS THEY BELIEVE WITH ALL THERI HEARTS (LAUGH LAUGH)IS THAT THIS LAND WAS SOLD TO FOREIGN INTEREST BY “HILLARY CLINTON” AND MONIES FULTERED THEOUGH THE CLINTON FOUNDATION. AND NO I AM NOT A HILLARY FAN AT ALL, BUT I AM NOT SAYING THIS TO DISCOURAGE VOTES. VOYE FOR WHO YOU WANT, BCAUSE THAT ALSO DOES NOT TRULY MATTER EOTHER, WHOMEVER THE BIG MONEY INTEREST WANT IN THY WILL PUT IN. ANYWAY I PRAY FOR THAT FAMILY AND ALL THISE THAT ARE BEING OPRESSED BY THE LIES OF OUR U.S. GOVRMENT. OH AND AS A “SUPPOSEDLY” FREE CITIZEN USINF THE SO CALLED FREEDOM OF SPEECH THAT I AM SUPPOSED TO HAVE TO STATE THE TRUTH. I HOPE I HAVE NOT OFFENDED ANYONE, BUT THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH AND AMERICANS NEED TO START SEEKING THE TRUTH AND STANDING FOR IT!

  23. A lot of you posting your comments like you even know what Mr. Lavoy was about , whenever you do wake up from your total stupidity , I pray to God it won’t be too late.

    He wasn’t shot for what he was about, but for what he did. He should have surrendered and not resisted arrest.

    Don’t resist arrest. Civil disobedience of the UNarmed variety worked rather well for civil rights activist who often regarded arrest as a badge of honor. They won. There’s a hint here, but hicks who only live in their affirmation bubble aren’t
    capable of playing to win by the rules.

    No reason existed for any protester to be armed.

    I hope that all you fluoridated city dwellers are vegans, the price of beef just went way up. You show your ignorance in the statements you make. The Federal Government is the illegal occupancy. Read the Constitution, the Federalist Papers. I’m sure if you saw School House Rock, you might catch a glimmer, But maybe not. GOD help us(a).

    It’s very easy for “armchair quarterbacks” [acqb] to post hate-filled drivel about a man shot down with his hands in the air trying to draw fire away from two women and a wounded man inside his truck. Whether you agreed with him or not, he was a human being. These acqb” bloggers don’t have a clue about what is being done out here to ranchers and farmers by a federal government run by elected politicians bought and paid for by the likes of the Koch brothers. The federal government has no legal jurisdiction over the public lands owned by the states nor can the feds own any land outside of 10 square miles for a national capital and any land purchased from the states with permission of that state’s legislature, for the siting of forts, arsenals, ports, and any other essential buildings. PERIOD. Read Article I, Sec. 8 of the US Constitution. The Feds are forcing ranchers and farmers out of business. The BLM has been videoed setting fires to pastures, fires that burned cattle alive, or burned them so badly they had to be destroyed, fires that burned buildings, corrals, fences, power poles, destroyed wildlife and their habitats, etc. [Yet the Hammonds get sent to prison for accidentally burning 149 acres of public land, which they put out themselves.] When the ranchers put out the fires, the BLM came back and were videoed restarting the fires while the cameras were running. The BLM have destroyed water retention ponds, shut off water to livestock and wildlife, and killed cattle and buried them in mass graves before they were caught doing so. The BLM is also rounding up wild horses, burros, etc. from public lands, and illegally selling them to killers who ship them to Mexico for slaughter. One herd was corralled and left to die from starvation and dehydration. They are rounded up by helicopters which run the horses for miles, killing many colts. This is all in violation of the Wild Horse Act. In Texas, the Feds and BLM are trying to force ranchers off their lands along the Red River. This isn’t even public land. These families have deeds to the land going back over 100 years when the state of Texas sold them the land. The Fed’s response is, Texas shouldn’t have done that. It’s not just happening in Nevada and Oregon. When the ranchers go under, guess how much you’ll be paying for imported beef, OR you could be eating horse meat (from our wild horses) which is happening in Mexico as there’s not enough cattle to feed the people. When the factories take over growing produce because all the private farmers went under, get ready for “soylent green.” The public is nothing but frogs swimming in a big cooking pot and the feds are slowly taking away our constitutional rights one-at-a- time. As long as you slowly heat up the water, the frogs will acclimate and continue swimming in the pot until they die. If you put frogs in water that is already heated they will hop out. Keep swimming.

      Janice Mitich: “It’s very easy for “armchair quarterbacks” [acqb] to post hate-filled drivel about a man shot down with his hands in the air trying to draw fire away from two women and a wounded man inside his truck”. We know now that this isn’t what happened. Lavoy had a gun on him, was clearly reaching for it, and he told people he would rather be killed than surrender to the police. The car he was in was also loaded with guns, and he was literally begging to be shot. Only a small fringe group of people think he was murdered.

      • Fascinating comment, should be prefaced with the words “once upon a time” The car he was in was loaded with guns? Where the hell did that tidbit come from. Yes a small group of people think he was murdered, because only a small group of people make any effort to try and find out what the facts are. Any one who makes any kind of effort will find that this whole situation smells really bad. The state police said they shot him twice, once from the back and once from the front, but the coroner’s report only found three bullet holes in his back. One question I have never seen anyone answer is why does the clothing under his jacket show bullet holes corresponding to the bullet wounds he received, yet his jacket has only one bullet hole in it?

        • LOL – and you talk about ‘fairy tales’. “why does the clothing under his jacket show bullet holes corresponding to the bullet wounds he received, yet his jacket has only one bullet hole in it?” Where are Your facts – where is Your proof. You are totally delusional.

  27. Iamnot Lavoy // April 9, 2016 at 10:28 pm // Reply

    It’s all the same for everyone. Lavoy was not “special” over anyone else. This article however is in error because it was OREGON STATE TROOPERS who shot Finicum, not CITY or COUNTY of Burns. Looks like a lot of WWAC (whining without a clue). Most of those commenting here obviously don’t have a clue to begin with.

    • I find it incredibly frustrating reading the comments how “he was clearly going for a gun, look at the video”. REAL WORLD, go to your local store where they sell floor length “dusters” like Lavoy was wearing. Try one on in a fitting room, while watching yourself in a mirror, pretend there is a gun in your left hand pocket, that you a trying to get with your right hand. Watch what you are doing. Are you reaching across your lower abdomen like Lavoy was? Probably not. Lavoy was quite likely not carrying a gun, but the feds planted a gun in the wrong pocket, so they had to make up the story about this strange cross draw where he was trying to get a gun out of his left hand coat pocket with his right hand.

      • Totally Delusional

        • How were you able to reach that profound conclusion? I have not seen anyone explain just how he was going to be able to get a gun out of his LEFT hand coat pocket with his RIGHT hand by reaching across his lower abdomen, as he was obviously doing.

  28. Scott Richmond // April 13, 2016 at 8:51 pm // Reply

    He was reaching for a gun, and your an idiot for pretending otherwise.

    • How do you know he was reaching for a gun you poor clueless blind squirrel liberal democrat troll? How was he going to reach it the way his hand was supposedly going?
