The family of the deceased vows to continue the fight against federal tyranny
On Thursday, there are several media reports that a spokesman of a protest group in Oregon, US, was killed and the protest leader Ammon Bundy and 7 other protesters were arrested by the County police in Tuesday. Reports also said that the armed protesters occupying the headquarters of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon since January 2.
Security officials told to reporters that officers opened fire when Mr. Finicum reached toward his waistband, where he had a gun.
According to media reports, Finicum was one of the most vocal occupiers who took over the refuge building near Burns.
“Please keep praying and keep using your voice to get the truth out,” Mr. Finicum’s family said in a brief statement. The family vowed to continue the fight against tyranny
“One of liberty’s finest patriots is fallen. He will not go silent into eternity,” the occupiers said on the Bundy Ranch Facebook page.
However, after an appearance in Federal District Court in Portland, Ammon Bundy issued a statement through his lawyer.
“To those remaining at the refuge, I love you. Let us take this fight from here. Please stand down. Go home and hug your families. This fight is ours for now in the courts. Please go home,” Mr. Bundy said in that statement.
After arresting Bundy, the federal authorities have increased pressure on the remaining protesters to abandon the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward informed reporters that there were half a dozen holdouts in there.
“It is time for everybody in this illegal occupation to move on,” Ward said to reporters that it was time for everybody in that illegal occupation to move on.
“There doesn’t have to be bloodshed in our community,” Sheriff of Harney County said.
“(When) we have issues with the way things are in our government, we have a responsibility as citizens to act on them in an appropriate manner. We don’t arm up, we don’t rebel. We work through the appropriate channels. This can’t happen anymore, this can’t happen in America, and it can’t happen in Harney County,” Sheriff Dave Ward told.
The Harney County Sheriff informed reporters that the group had been carrying explosives and night vision goggles, and weapons, and that “if they didn’t get the fight they wanted out there they would bring the fight to town.”
Though, western media reported that a Portland judge, on Wednesday, ordered Bundy and the six others arrested to stay in jail until at least Friday. US Magistrate Judge also said that the protesters, who have no ties to Oregon, pose a danger to the community.
