Hey MrC -- Mosnarky does sample the product quite often (as you can see from his followup posts). His other products include the Drivel Deviser, the Bonafide Blathering Black Box, Confabulating Christian Contraption, and just out -- the Garbled GOP Gizmo with the amazing Gut Grabber for the Gutless Gabbers.

This offer not available in Blue States but can be readily found in Clean Christian porn shops in red states, in the better voodoo poetry slams done in Puerto Rico & Haiti, and occasionally in all Good-Ol'-Boy Gulag stores below the Mason-Dixon line.

What's shameful is the way Republicans keeps sexually exploiting aliens. At least Democrats want to give them religious freedom choices. - MMFCMM

Now let's see....the rightwingers who came up with the original idea upon which the Affordable Care Act is based tells us that it doesn't work.....same bunch who have not come up with an idea on the subject since....same bunch who often ask us to return to the system which certainly didn't work or cover folks who needed medical care but couldn't afford it and had that awful exclusionary rule called pre-existing conditions....
--
....aren't they the same bunch sitting on that fat arses on the sideline trying to tell us that they're the experts on health care?
--
....ain't they the pits?

Dang....had to get that stuff off my chest first.
--
Now....I watched the videos 3 times. I did see that he ran around the roadblock or tried to or just failed to slow down in time.
Since the camera angle was from overhead....it did look clearly like he had his hands up or out to his side, thus away from his body. He then moved his arms/hands to his chest and was in the act of turning. He was then shot and immediately fell down.
--
I agree that audio is needed to make further judgements. There is no proof that any other video has been hidden by law enforcement agencies. There is no clear proof that Finicum was going for his weapon.
Finicum also had people on nearly opposite sides from him, possibly both talking at the same time. Could his arms have come inward simply because he was turning around to hear or see the other man? Could he have been hoping that the turning motion would disguise him reaching for his weapon?
--
Slak - strip away the conspiracy BS and focus more on what the evidence tells us and doesn't tell us. Bear in mind the evidence of Finicum's earlier statements regarding how he would handle an attempt to arrest him - was this a factor or not in his being shot? Use your inner lawyer - not your conspiracy hoodoo to examine events on Finicum's behalf and on behalf of the facts.
--
Am almost certain that there'll be more evidence on this matter in the days ahead - especially audio.

I particularly hate conspiracy bullsh*tters. Black ops helicopter flakes, tinfoil hat bozos, paranoids envisioning evil FBI agents lurking behind the scene, etc, etc, etc.

Oregon standoff is already spawning a pickup truck load of conspiracy theories:

I leave the fallacious question category to you Slick. It goes with your fallacious statement category. You clearly made an assertion about someone controlling the A/V for the scene. Surely you can produce some "impartial evidence" to back this up. If not, STFU.

"Somebody made damn sure there was no clear A/V at payback time. Hummm......wonder who that was?"

From BBC News:

In the early days of the Oregon occupation, the militiamen were a mixed bunch. There were the taciturn ones, the braggarts and the loose cannons.
And then there was LaVoy Finicum, a man who seemed to stand apart from the rest. On one foul night in the cold with sleet falling and rumours of a raid flying, Mr Finicum took his rifle and sat on the ground at the entrance to the bird reserve headquarters with the weapon on his lap.
Ignoring scoffs from the assembled reporters, he told me he would resist if police came for him. He had no intention of being caged and, if necessary, he was ready to die.
In the end he appears to have died as he predicted he might, violently and at the hands of the authorities he despised. Whatever the truth of his final moments, LaVoy Finicum leaves behind a large family, reportedly of 11 children.
