Finicum is in the center.
The right-wing press has repeatedly put out the claim that he “had his hands up.” Finicum did stumble around with his hands up, but then the above frame…
Is he reaching into his jacket?
The man to the left side shoots him first.
The video shows a few things more clearly:
- He refused to stop for the federal vehicles behind him, with their flashers pulling him over.
- He ran for it and drove recklessly.
- He attempted to run a roadblock, narrowly missed killing a cop who stepped right in front of his speeding truck.
- After he emerged he stumbled around in the snow with his arms out, and then he turned around with his arms down.
