Dear Mr. Trump,

Today the Malheur County District Attorney Dan Norris in Oregon said the fatal shooting of rancher Mr. LaVoy Finicum, one of the protesters who took over a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon in January, was “justified and necessary”

The liberal media portray Mr. Finicum as armed but the U.S. Constitution permits him to be armed so the liberal media bias trying to make this man out as dangerous is ridiculous.

Les Zaitz a reporter for The Oregonian/OregonLive writes:

An FBI agent is suspected of lying about firing twice at Robert “LaVoy” Finicum and may have gotten help from four other FBI agents in covering up afterward, authorities revealed Tuesday.

The bullets didn’t hit Finicum and didn’t contribute to his death, but now all five unnamed agents, part of an elite national unit, are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Justice Department. Inspector General Michael Horowitz is leading the independent inquiry.

The remarkable disclosure came as a team of local investigators released findings that two state troopers shot Finicum three times in the back during the chaotic scene at a police roadblock Jan. 26. One bullet pierced his heart, an autopsy showed. Read more.

Mr. Trump I am sure you have already reviewed the below video of this event and can see Mr. Finicum with his hands in the air surrendering to law enforcement as he was brutally shot and killed while standing surrounded by the FBI and the Oregon state police.

Mr. Finicum was shot and killed January 26th by Oregon State Police after he tried to drive around a traffic stop. He took the first (shot) round to the back which forced him to grab his side and the second (shot) round to the front putting him down.

District Attorney Norris said ten shots were fired at Mr. Finicum during the confrontation, eight of them by Oregon State Police officers and two by FBI agents.

He said three of the bullets fired by Oregon State Police officers led to his death.

“The six shots fired by the Oregon State Police were justified and in fact necessary,” Norris said.

Mr. Trump the question is why were ten shots fired at a man standing in the snow with his hands in the air? If he had a weapon it was holstered and covered.

Why did law enforcement not check on the condition of Mr. Finicum as he lay on the snow bleeding out?

Mr. Trump I am a personal friend of Governor Rick Scott and an assigned body guard to Governor Sarah Palin (as needed by her) and I am also a weapons expert – US Navy retired.

This video clearly shows a man with his hands in the air surrendering to law enforcement. This looks more like an execution of Mr. Finicum just my opinion. In this situation I would not have pulled my weapon nor fired a shot.

Upon your successful bid for the presidency and if and when you are sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, I respectfully request the DA of Malheur County, the Oregon State Police and the Oregon FBI be fully investigated in regards to the death of this kind God faring family man. A stand up American indeed.

I will call Governor Scott this weekend and let him know about my request and what I am seeking from you when and if you are elected President.

I believe a full Congressional investigation into this matter is warranted. The Hammonds, the Bundys and all ranchers should all be released from prison. They are, in my humble opinion, political prisoners of the Obama administration.

These are God fearing folks fighting for their Constitutional land rights.

Mr. Trump you are going to find that this matter is not so much about grazing cattle but it is about a giant land grab by the Communist forces in the White House using the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as the enforcement arm of the Obama regime.

They are operating through the Governors office in Oregon via the Justice Dept. to remove the last remaining holds outs of private land owners in this neck of the woods so the Federal Communist forces in the White House can get the Uranium in this rich mineral filled land.

The BLM are waiting in the wings as they are the first in line to snap up this land by court order when they the Hammonds and the rest are forced out, it becomes relatively apparent what is really going on in Harney County. We must stop this from happening.

Uranium deposits are considered “locatable minerals” under The General Mining Law of 1872, as amended. That law opened the public lands of the United States to mineral acquisition by the location and maintenance of mining claims.

The exploration and mining of these types of mineral deposits are administered under the General Mining Law Regulations at 43 CFR 3800.

I look forward to the investigation moving forward. The Federal government have no constitutional authority to manage state land and the BLM has no constitutional authority to be funded.

I will send this E mail to my friends in the Congress including Congressman Ryan Zinke, SEAL Team 6 retired. (R) – Montana. I will request that he also review the video of Mr. Finicum being shot while his hands are in the air surrendering to the Obama Federal forces. And move forward from there.
