Stupid, very stupid.
Say what you like about .gov over reach and power.
But this is and was not the way to accomplish anything.

So far, we’ve only really gotten one version of the story.
And it’s highly biased in reality.
Information put out by those who weren’t there, about things they didn’t see.
It was a traffic stop, not a full frontal attack on the buildings.
This is where a dashcam and bodycams really shine.

And statements like when Finicum vowed a few weeks ago that he would die before spending his life behind bars, do not lead to positive endings.

I’m not picking sides, I’m looking at the situation as a whole, and waiting for more information.
