Armed ANTIFA member at middle school shot and killed by cop

Not mentioned in mainstream US media

www.shtfplan.com

You didn’t see this one in the mainstream media because the man at the center of this report was not wearing a MAGA(Make America Great Again -Trump) hat, but we’re going to show it to you anyway.

According to reports, Charles Landeros, a man linked to the ANTIFA-related “Community Armed Self Defense” group, was involved in a custody dispute at Cascade Middle School in Eugene, Oregon. When police showed up to escort the man off campus, law enforcement body cam videos show he went completely nuts and attempted to evade them.

Disturbing footage:

As officers became more aggressive in forcing him out of the school, Landeros reaches for a concealed handgun (visible for a short moment in his right hand, as body cam video below shows).

The situation immediately goes from bad to worse for Landeros, as police reach for their own weapons and fire back.

Landeros was shot and killed in the doorway area of the school.

According to The Daily Emerald, Landeros led a student protest at Oregon University in 2017 and was a member of left-leaning activists groups.

About an hour before the shooting Landeros reportedly posted a threatening comment on Facebook:

About an hour before the shooting, Perlow said, someone tipped the police department that a Facebook account with the name “Charlie Landeros” had commented “Death to all pigs” in a comment section of the post. The police department’s social media manager attempted to locate the comment but both it and the “Charlie Landeros” Facebook account had been deactivated or deleted.

It’s not clear if Landeros was one of the members of ANTIFA groups preparing for armed confrontation as noted previously:

FBI closes Las Vegas massacre investigation with a dodgy 3 page report

by Alex Bruce

The FBI announced ‘case closed’ this past Tuesday on the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting, which left 58 people dead and over 800 injured. They produced a 3-page report that did not identify a motive or establish any forensic connection between the alleged weapons and any of the victims. Indeed, there has been no forensic proof presented by either the Las Vegas police or the FBI that the alleged killer Stephen Paddock was, in fact the killer. (identical modus operandi to Port Arthur)

Stephen Paddock “tried to make people happy, he tried to make people care and I  don’t know what happened to him,” friend Lisa Crawford (pic) told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“I have read them over and over and over again,” Crawford said of the emails. “I’ve even looked at some photos online of, I guess, him and his girlfriend. You know, I was even trying to look into his eyes to see if I saw something that wasn’t normal, you know. No, I didn’t see anything.”

Noticeably missing from the report was any discussion of alleged killer Stephen Paddock’s chest wound or any evidence that the window in room 35-135 was broken before or during the attack.

Over 100 FBI agents were brought in from around the country to produce this 3-page report, that was even less detailed than the report produced by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, which wrapped up its own investigation last August. Special Agent Aaron Rouse in charge of the Las Vegas Division of the FBI made a televised statement laden with comforting neurolinguistic programming phrases intended to reassure listeners but peppered with strange slips.

YouTuber John E. Hoover, whose channel has been dedicated solely to this historic case takes Rouse to task for the many questions that remain unanswered, such as the three helicopters seen on FlightRadar24 flying overhead of the attacks, not accounted for and not belonging to either the LVMPD or the two known services that fly out of the nearby airport. Hoover asks whether the time has come for a Congressional inquiry.

Turn off the TV and take control of your own mind

By Derrick Broze

Activist Post

Another week, another opportunity for the corporate media to send the Internet into a frenzy and divide the nation over a fake controversy based on sloppy news reporting. 

For the last week the “mainstream media” and their loyal followers have been freaking out over a video purporting to show a conflict between a group of Catholic boys attending the anti-abortion March for Life and a group of Indigenous people celebrating Indigenous People’s Day in Washington D.C.

Fake news broadcast every day by US and Australian media has demonised this Trump- supporting boy in Washington DC when Indian Nathan Phillips, beating a drum, fronted the boy during a ‘March for Life’ demonstration. The Catholic boys groups were chanting ‘build the wall’ . The lad is wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) cap

The situation became even more toxic due to the fact that the boys were wearing Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats and allegedly shouting “Build The Wall!”.

Meanwhile, Nathan Phillips, one of the indigenous marchers,  walked into the crowd of high school teenagers and eventually stood face to face with a student named Nick Sandman. Phillips played his drum and sang his prayers while staring in the face of the smirking teenager.

Like clockwork, the pundits obsessed over whether the boys smirk was racist and whether he should be crucified. On the other side of the fence we saw Internet sleuths tracking the movements of Phillips to see if it was him who initiated the conflict by forcing his way into the group of innocent Catholic boys. And within days the whole narrative fell apart.

As typical, we now know that the situation was more complex. In fact, it appears a third party – the Black Hebrews or Israelites – caused the most trouble by hurling bigoted epithets at the boys and the Indigenous marchers.

And, once again, the corporate media proves they are not to be trusted (and neither are some of your Facebook friends, apparently). But, rather than simply complain about the lack of accountability and quality of the corporate journalist hacks, I choose to focus on individual personal responsibility.

I want to encourage all consumers of news to hold yourself to a higher standard. Rather than simply reacting to new information and immediately posting on social media, take a few moments to breathe, reflect, and research.

One last point:  It seems the true reason the two groups were in Washington D.C. has been lost in the drama surrounding the interaction between Sandman and Phillips. The Catholic boys were there with their school in support of the March for Life, an annual rally that protests the legality of abortion.

Nathan Phillips and the Indigenous marchers were in D.C. to raise awareness on environmental issues facing Indigenous communities, as well as the thousands of Indigenous women who have gone missing in the U.S. and Canada.

The boys and other supporters attending the March for Life likely felt the same sense of urgency the supporters of the Indigenous People’s Day expressed. Both groups feel strongly about their causes; but instead of talking about those issues, the media has been focusing on whether a smirk was racist. Turn off the television and take control of your own mind.

Big brother about to get into your car

from Activist Post

A plan to turn a portion of Interstate 70 into a roadway where cars communicate with street lights, signs and other internet-connected things just tripled to more than 500 miles.

Colorado’s “internet of roads” project will now extend to highways that reach from Pueblo to Wyoming, and Sterling to Utah, after the state Department of Transportation was awarded a $20 million federal grant earlier this month.

Cars will soon be much smarter than their drivers. Big brother is about to invade your car by choosing the air temperature, which radio station you listen to, plan your travel route, check for posture, drowsiness and mine your data

As vehicles get smarter, your car will be keeping eyes on you.

This week at CES, the international consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, a host of startup companies will demonstrate to global automakers how the sensor technology that watches and analyzes drivers, passengers and objects in cars will mean enhanced safety in the short-term, and revenue opportunities in the future.

Whether by generating alerts about drowsiness, unfastened seat belts or wallets left in the backseat, the emerging technology aims not only to cut back on distracted driving and other undesirable behavior, but eventually help automakers and ride-hailing companies make money from data generated inside the vehicle.

(Source: Reuters)

“There’s no doubt this is a hot area,” said Modar Alaoui, founder and CEO of Eyeris, in a recent interview. His company combines five 2D cameras with AI technology for “in-vehicle scene understanding,” including car occupants’ height, weight, gender and posture.

Alaoui believes once automakers see the benefits of a camera tracking the driver, they will opt for more.

Analysis from driver monitoring technology could help turn on the heat, lower the seat or play a certain kind of music when a particular occupant enters the car. If a passenger looks toward the dashboard, a certain control could light up to help anticipate a need.

Combine this technology with the coming 5G blanket coverage, EMF radiation levels will soar, exposing every city dweller and some highway users to radiation sicknesses.

Saudi Arabia Prince Alwaleed bin Talal involved in Las Vegas massacre?

by Alex Bruce

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) recently released more bodycam footage from 9 officers recorded during the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. Five machine gun bursts of 4 rounds each are heard firing at 11:58PM, almost 2 hours after the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock is reported to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

John Cullen of the John E. Hoover YouTube channel joins Jason Goodman to discuss his findings on this latest release. Footage from a police car contains audio from the dispatcher reporting gunfire at the Bellagio Hotel, seen in the car’s rear view mirror, followed by these 5 bursts. Bellagio is located 2 miles from Mandalay Bay. These 11:58PM gunshots were definitely not fired 2 miles away from this police car.

Newly released police tapes reveal no shots were fired from the Mandaly Hotel where the alleged shooter was killed. At least three helicopters were involved spraying the crowd along Route 91 with belt-fed machine guns. Bodycam tapes reveal active shooters at the Bellagio Hotel(pic) and 12 other locations on October 1, 2017

The Associated Press (AP) and local Las Vegas media outlets successfully sued the Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) for the release of this police bodycam footage and 2,000 pages of information previously withheld from the public about this biggest mass shooting in US history. Despite their win, the AP barely reported on the findings at all!

Each successive release of the police reports and footage further confirms the reports I posted 14 months ago from eyewitnesses, Gio Rios, René Downs and Orora Monroe about active shooters at numerous hotels on the night of October 1, 2017 at the Luxor, Tropicana, New York, New York, MGM, Hooters, Aria, Cosmopolitan, Miracle Mile Shopping, Bellagio, Paris, Caesar’s Palace and Harrah’s.

With roughly 100 seconds of machine gunfire equaling 1,057 rounds fired, leaving 58 killed and 417 wounded by gunshots, it is highly unlikely that only one shooter and one gun were involved, as officially reported. Cullen is the creator of the definitive video detailing evidence that 3 helicopters shot at the Route 91 victims from overhead.

John and Jason go over 9 bodycam videos, some of which has been redacted by the LVMPD in apparent contempt of the court and an obstruction of justice. Large swathes of the screen are blurred at the point in the video when an officer describes the three women who were registered as guests in Stephen Paddock’s suite with him. Shortly after this, nearly one minute of audio is missing.

Cullen is adamant about the lack of evidence that any shots were fired from Room 32-135 at the Mandalay Bay hotel or that the window of that room could have been broken before 11:35PM.

Per bodycam video and audio shown here, the window of Room 32-135 wasn’t broken at the time when it was breached at 10:30PM, while at the same time, a police helicopter is heard on camera reporting that another north-facing window broken, also noting “movement” inside that room.

Cullen points to smartphone footage taken from the concert to show strong evidence of shots being fired at 9:47PM from Room 38-135, on the floors of the building belonging to the Four Seasons Hotel, which is 45% owned by Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. If this window were somehow open or broken, it would have to have been repaired before sunrise and photos of the building were published worldwide.

John and Jason cross reference the newly-released videos and they get into how the events in Las Vegas relate to Saudi Princes Alwaleed bin Talal and Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) and the murder of “journalist” (CIA-tied weapons dealer) Jamal Khashoggi.

George Bush Snr was no angel. Trump didn’t deliver eulogy at his funeral

by Alex Bruce from the US

The Globalist lineage of the Bush Crime Family goes back to Samuel P. Bush, grandfather of the recently deceased George Herbert Walker Bush and lifelong associate of the Rockefellers and the Harrimans, in the railroad and banking industries and as a board member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.

When his son, Prescott Bush wasn’t investing the funds of Nazi financier Fritz Thyssen at his Wall Street firm, he was leading a group of wealthy industrialists in the 1934 attempted coup d’état against Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Given the long-standing animosity between Donald Trump and the Bush family, Trump did not deliver the eulogy at Bush Snr’s funeral. Trump is well aware of the allegations described in this story.

The “Business Plot” coup was quashed by Marine Corps General Smedley Butler, who wrote the book, War is a Racket, in which he described this criminal corporatist element within the US, of which four generations of the Bush family have been exponents. They skated in the 1930s and skated again, in the 2000s, when they hatched the 9/11 plot and took profits from the massive war economy that they’d created with no-bid contracts.

Over the course of three decades, the Bushes and Clintons worked like a fine-tuned tag team, setting up China to become the next global superpower. Though ostensibly political rivals, the Clintons had been inducted into the Bush crime family during the 1980s, when a small airfield in Mena, Arkansas was used in the transport of CIA cocaine.

Prior to his appointment as Director of the CIA, Bush Senior was made Chief of the US Liaison Office in Beijing in 1974. This was during the era just before formal diplomatic relations were established between the US the Communist Chinese government.

In 1993, Bill Clinton granted “Most Favored Nation” status to China, paving the way for the wholesale offshoring of US manufacturing.

During the Obama Administration, Hillary Clinton’s infamous homebrew server was intentionally left open to hacking, in order to allow the Chinese penetration that obtained a copy of nearly all of her emails during her tenure as Secretary of State.

This is but the most infinitesimal tip of the iceberg of the drug-dealing, warmongering, Globalist-grifting and depraved criminality practised by this junta. No members of the Bush-Clinton Crime Family have been charged for their endless felonies and treason. Is this about to change?

California wildfires unlike any others

by Alex Bruce

On-the-ground reports from California are surreal. It’s hard to know what to make of them from 3,000 miles away and especially in light of the undeniable correspondences between images we see here and images seen around Ground Zero in Dr Judy Wood’s book, ‘Where Did the Towers Go?’ where she outlined her hypothesis that Directed Energy Weapons were involved with the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers. This is also what some people are alleging has occurred to cause the wildfires in California.

Observers say cars burned in these wildfires, yet sheets of paper alongside did not burn. Is it God’s wrath or some sinister operation by the deep state?

A subscriber sent me this video with the message, “I personally went to Santa Rosa and saw all the devastation and spoke to at least 20 construction workers onsite. I asked them if there were any ‘anomalies’ regarding the fires and several said that they’d never seen steel melt, aluminum engine blocks melting, with molten aluminum running into the gutters and that almost all the trees and landscaping were still there.”

The video is from APlaneTruth.Info, who has been on a relentless tear, uploading videos and commentary about the Santa Rosa fires, non-stop. The photos show many anomalies but the ones that really give me pause are of the toasted cars. I’m immediately reminded of the work of Dr Judy Wood. In fact, “toasted cars” was a term coined by Dr Wood to describe very similar anomalous phenomena found at the scene of Ground Zero and for which she felt that normal words were inadequate, especially a toasted car, flipped upside down in the blast shadow of the Towers’ collapse, next to the offices of Amex.

This video reports that over one dozen cars were flipped over onto their roofs in one night in Santa Rosa! He asks, “What kind of fire flips 3,000 pound cars?” Likewise, what kind of building collapse toasts cars half a mile away, under the FDR?

As for the melted engine blocks mentioned above, Dr Wood also noted many engine blocks in flames after the Towers’ collapse and she commented, “Is there something attractive about engine blocks? Why not gasoline fuel tanks?” And as for asking why the trees and wooden structures in California within 5-10 feet of these wildfires are untouched, Dr Wood had the same question about the piles of office paper surrounding the burning cars at Ground Zero: “Why doesn’t the paper burn?”

Dr Wood’s hypothetical answer was that a Directed Energy Weapon of some kind was used to powderize (“dustify”) the primary steel and concrete portions of the WTC buildings, while burning and bending aluminum, yet leaving paper and many other materials unharmed.

The flipped cars are the result of levitating electro-magnetic field effects and energy interference described by Canadian inventor, John Hutchison and known as “The Hutchison Effect”.

In 2007, Dr Wood sued NIST for fraud in the investigation of 9/11 and John Hutchison filed an affidavit to legally testify to the numerous similarities between The Hutchison Effect and the evidence from the 9/11 attacks.

Unfathomable evil was committed on 9/11, which becomes exponentially more evil if Directed Energy Weapons were used. Are we seeing a replay of this evil in California? Terrorism (regardless of who committed it) is not covered by homeowner’s insurance, so we’re told that nobody wants to talk about the laser beams reported and filmed by some.

The video ends with some very dark humor and I’m reminded of how comedy and humor have all but ceased to exist in recent years, having been thoroughly strangulated by PC culture and late-night Trump-bashing.

We see a comedy sketch, that looks like an ad for the local energy company, PG&E. Ed Burns, Chief Engineer, Wildfire Division says,

“Hi, my name is Ed. People ask us here, at PG&E, ‘How did you guys really start the wildfires? Overgrown trees in the powerlines?’

“Heck, no! It ain’t easy burning down hundreds of houses! Real high-tech! First and foremost, you got to make sure all your houses have SmartMeters – that’s crucial.

“Now, on the night you’re gonna burn, you gotta chemtrail heavily. That makes the air more conductive. Next, turn up your cell towers to high. That’s right, crank them puppies up, as high as they’ll go!

“With the chemtrails, this electrifies the air and gives you those beautiful little tiny blue sparks! Now, have local HAARP create a strong wind – and as a final stroke, boost up those SmartMeters. That’s right, don’t be shy! Turn them up all the way! This turns houses into toast!

“Only really cost us 77 cell towers and some underground cable! But don’t try this at home! We’re professionals!”

Alex Jones warns of false flag terrorism attack to take down Infowars and Trump

 

by Brent Melville

https://www.newswars.com/
ALEX Jones, front man for Infowars.com and Prison Planet in Austin, Texas, has warned that a major false flag terrorism event may be attempted soon to discredit and destroy him and President Trump in order to push the corrupt Clinton Democrats across the line in the US mid-term elections.

Jones was taken off Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify and other social media early in August at the urging of major media channels such as CNN, NBC, Washington Post and New York Times.

The same media are now spreading blatantly false reports that Infowars is broadcasting illegally and that Jones is threatening violence against the media.

US independent news commentator Alex Jones has been taken off the air for exposing the corruption of the Democrats and George Soros

One CNN contributor, author Rafia Zakaria, accused Infowars of being “complicit in domestic terror”.

Channel after channel including the so-called comedians like Bill Maher are chiming in with the same anti-Jones/Infowars message accusing him of “hate speech”, “lurid conspiracies”, running an illegal broadcasting operation and so on.

Infowars has become one of the top five US broadcasters – an audience of some 6 million people – with Jones the leading agitator of US opposition to globalism for two decades.
Before his election in 2016 Donald Trump appeared on Infowars for one interview with Alex Jones.

But now as the populist President Trump moves to “drain the swamp” i.e. the entrenched Washington-London global power elite and their Clinton-Rothschild-Soros pedophile Satanist network, a desperate fightback has been launched.
“At 5am I get up and type my name into a iPad and I see ‘Alex Jones pirate radio station’ and I was raided by the feds – it’s a total hoax,” Jones said on his Newswars channel this week.

“It’s a lie per day or more. It’s crazy. I hear ‘Alex Jones hit with $15,000 fine’. I haven’t, it’s a lie.
“I haven’t an FCC case or issue against us in 24 years.”

Jones says Infowars is a content provider with satellite uplinks. “We don’t have radio transmitters,” he said.

He said Infowars was fed into 400-plus cable TV stations and 50kW radio stations across the nation.

Jones says the attack on Infowars is a beta test, before a major attack is launched on President Trump, who will be aligned with Jones as a domestic terrorist.
“So this is a major psyop. My lawyers wrote an analysis of how it’s a major plan to take us down. They’re scared. It’s a violent revolution against Trump coming in.

“They’re rolling out paid PR.
“They’ve got three New York Times reporters … Buzzfeed reporters working full time against us.
“They literally call and tell us ‘we will destroy you’.

“I’m telling you that staged terror attacks will happen against big tech or ABC or CNN or something.
“A couple of weeks before the (mid-term) election they will do this.”

Forensic data proves DNC was not hacked by Russia, but another ‘inside job’

Julian Assange backs up the evidence Russia is clean

by Alex Bruce

William Binney, former Technical Director of NSA goes over the proof that the DNC emails published by Guccifer 2.0 were downloaded locally and not hacked remotely, as perpetrated by the Establishment politicians, the US Department of Justice and in an Intelligence Community Assessment Report by selected analysts from NSA, CIA and FBI issued in January 24, 2017.

Binney says the highest transfer rate was 49.1 megabytes per second, which is much faster than possible from a remote online connection. He says some colleagues challenged this assumption and ran various tests, from the Netherlands, Albania, Belgrade and in the UK and he says, “The fastest rate we got was from a data center in New Jersey…to a data center in the UK and that was 12 megabytes per second, which is less than a fourth of the rate necessary to transfer the data, as it was listed from Guccifer 2.0…However, it is the perfect download rate for a thumb drive.” He says their findings don’t prove who did it but they do prove that the data breach was local and did not consist of an overseas hack.

Technical Director NSA William Binney proves the US was not hacked by Russia but was just another inside job. President Trump would have this information but he has recanted his statement doubting the FBI by saying the US does have the best intelligence services in the world

The next observation made by Binney seems to mesh with statements recently made by alleged Seth Rich murder witness, “Luke” who claims that US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had long been running an operation to monitor and to manipulate the DNC’s emails.

Guccifer 2.0 posted data on July 5th and on September 1st, 2016. “If you looked at it and you ignored the hour and the date but looked at minutes seconds and milliseconds, those two datasets merged just like that. So, that meant that Guccifer 2.0 was manipulating the data. He was taking one file down, splitting it into two parts, issuing one for the 5th of July and one for the 1st of September; so he’s fabricating…this shows he’s manipulating and and changing the data and so, the whole thing about Guccifer 2.0 is a fabrication…it’s worse than that, though…”

Binney makes a face and describes how the FBI and the CIA were basing their whole case about Russian hacking on this fabricated data and more embarrassingly for him, since he worked there for decades, NSA officially stated that it had “moderate confidence” that the emails were authentic.

Binney says NSA has access to all Internet traffic and are able to categorically say who hacked what from where. The fact that they never came forward with these details is what initially told him that the US Government’s allegations about the DNC emails are false.

Former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan and other members of the US political establishment are using this fabricated Guccifer 2.0 data as evidence of Russian hacking. Their chicanery is based on digital manipulation that is easy for anybody to understand. Even worse, they and other establishment Democrats keep repeating that “17 US intelligence agencies” have vouched for the authenticity of these Guccifer 2.0 logs, which is a lie.

Meanwhile, WikiLeaks publisher, Julian Assange has offered to give proof from his end that the DNC emails were not hacked by the Russians and Kim Dotcom, New Zealand founder of MegaUpload has offered to provide evidence that Seth Rich was the leaker.

Binney confirms that an FBI report exists, which says that Seth Rich’s computer had information going back and forth to WikiLeaks and that NSA would easily be able to substantiate this report.

Hammonds released from jail after Trump pardons them for staging a siege against the US Government and Obama

One protestor killed in cold blood by troopers

President Trump on Tuesday pardoned the father and son ranchers from Oregon whose imprisonment for setting fires on federal land sparked a 41-day takeover of a wildlife refuge in the state.

Trump signed the order granting clemency to 76-year-old Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven Hammond, 49, who were convicted of arson in 2012 for fires that burned on federal land in 2001 and 2006.

Steven and Dwight Hammond have been released from jail after President Trump issued a pardon for holding a 41 day siege involving hundreds of farmers and the FBI. One protester was shot in cold blood by police.

Morgan Philpot, an attorney for the Hammonds, confirmed to Fox News that his clients were released from a federal detention center south of Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon.

In a statement, the Hammond family said they were “grateful to the president and all who worked to make this possible, and to bring this about … We are very anxiously looking forward to seeing Dwight and Steven home.”

http://video.foxnews.com/v/4750873887001/final-holdouts-surrender-in-oregon-refuge-standoff

Though they served their original sentences for the conviction — Dwight serving three months, Steven serving one year — an appellate judge ruled in 2015 that the terms were too short under federal minimum sentencing laws and the Hammonds were resentenced to serve the mandatory minimum. This decision led to the 2016 protests.

“The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land,” the White House said in a statement. “The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges.”

The statement added: “Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency.”

Dwight has so far served about three years in prison and Steven has served about four years. They have also paid $400,000 to the United States to settle a related civil suit.

The resentencing sparked a protest from Ammon Bundy and dozens of others, who occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near the Hammond ranch in southeastern Oregon from Jan. 2 to Feb. 11, 2016.

The armed occupiers changed the refuge’s name to the Harney County Resource Center, reflecting their belief that the federal government has only a very limited right to own property within a state’s borders.

During the standoff at the refuge, FBI Agent W. Joseph Astarita allegedly fired shots during the arrest of rancher Robert “LaVoy” Finicum. Astarita later was accused of falsely denying he fired two shots at Finicum or his truck and pleaded not guilty to three counts of making a false statement and two counts of obstruction of justice.

During the standoff at the refuge, state troopers shot and killed rancher Robert “LaVoy” Finicum. FBI Agent W. Joseph Astarita later was accused of falsely denying he also fired two shots at Finicum or his truck and pleaded not guilty to three counts of making a false statement and two counts of obstruction of justice.

This is the latest in a series of Trump pardons. – Fox News
