Trust the FBI?

LaVoy Finicum went from foster parent of more than 60 high risk children, father of twelve, and grandfather of more than thirty, to being shot dead by weaponized law enforcement on a desolate Oregon highway in January of 2016.
The Arizona cattle rancher, without so much as a speeding ticket, ended up repeatedly labeled a Domestic Terrorist by national media, viewed by the FBI as the Number #1 National Security Threat to the United States of America, became the national spokesperson for a ragtag group of land rights protesters, and while on his way to a county Sheriff sponsored town hall meeting got shot at six times by FBI & Oregon State law enforcement before being shot in the back three times at a Dead Man Stop while allegedly reaching for his gun.
Was LaVoy Finicum a Domestic Terrorist that deserved to die at the hands of the FBI or were Labels and Government politically weaponized to kill a political opponent?

The Oregon Trials

Lavoy Finicum is a three-part documentary that explores the weaponization of the criminal justice system for political purposes. The first installment, The Oregon Trials deals with the tragic death of Lavoy Finicum. He was killed by Oregon State Police officers under the direction of the FBI. A federal judge joins with the FBI to railroad those she believes to be guilty.

What caused the ruckus? Occupation of an empty and unkempt cluster of federal buildings on a bird refuge 30 miles outside of the town of Burns, in Harney County. Oregon.

During the Oregon Trial, powerful people labeled 2016 Malheur Refuge protesters as domestic terrorists. The prisoners were subjected to brutal treatment in pre-trial detainment, even thrown into solitary confinement in feces laden dungeon cells. What you will learn about this case will shock and dismay you.

Political Prisoners in America
is the story of how a group of Americans were imprisoned and tried for protesting the actions of the Federal Bureau of Land Management in April of 2014 at a desolate Nevada interstate overpass (for that story watch GVG1: The Bundy Standoff).
Immediately, after the killing of LaVoy Finicum in 2016, Federal Law Enforcement began arresting the 2014 protesters. They were held in prison without bail for over two years, where they experienced what they allege was government sponsored racial segregation, solitary confinement, and torture – all without being found guilty by a jury of their peers.
When in court, Federal judge Gloria Navarro kicked defendants off the stand, restricted their use of the Constitution as a reason for their protest, and seemingly favored the prosecution. First tier defendants Greg Burleson and Todd Engel were the first to be found guilty and given lengthy sentences.
However, bombshell details revealed by a BLM whistleblower and an ultimatum issued by AG Sessions to US Attorney Steven Myhre turned the Federal prosecution’s case upside down.
Judge Navarro’s courtroom behavior changed overnight. Ultimately, on January 8th, 2018 she dismissed the case with prejudice, ruling that Federal prosecution had engaged in “flagrant prosecutorial misconduct…amounting to a due process violation” and a “reckless disregard for [its] Constitution[al] obligations.”
That day, the defendants walked out of the Federal courthouse victorious – but they and their families were left picking up the shattered pieces for years to come.
Shattered Lives in search of Justice
are the stories of Jeanette Finicum and Brianna Bundy seeking justice for what they allege were the wrongful death and imprisonment of their husbands, respectively.
In the aftermath of LaVoy Finicum’s death and Mel Bundy’s imprisonment, both women struggle being thrust into the national spotlight, having to provide for their families, while pursuing justice for their husbands in an unfamiliar and seemingly unfriendly justice system. Will they ever return to some semblance of normalcy?

Jeanette’s saga crescendos as the US Supreme Court rules on her wrongful death lawsuit. Briana’s victimization by media and government diminishes her willingness to fight for country as she circles the wagons around her family.

Will their husband’s sacrifices and families’ struggles have been in vain? Will the US Supreme Court concur with what has been alleged that the appellate judge dismissed Jeanette Finicum’s appeal said- will the highest court in the land “finally put a fork” in these families’ fight for justice? Or, will they be vindicated? What will be the Final Verdict?
