Shawna Cox Account/Malheur Link Dump 31JAN

Ammon Bundy(R), leader of a group of armed anti-government protesters leaves with Shawna Cox(C), after speaking to the media as other members look on at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon January 4, 2016. The FBI on January 4 sought a peaceful end to the occupation by armed anti-government militia members at a US federal wildlife reserve in rural Oregon, as the standoff entered its third day. The loose-knit band of farmers, ranchers and survivalists -- whose action was sparked by the jailing of two ranchers for arson -- said they would not rule out violence if authorities stormed the site, although federal officials said they hope to avoid bloodshed.

  1. I’ve seen quite a few rigs going through Bend out 20 to Burns that look like they are heading out to the protest from the looks of the flags stickers etc.

    “Gov” Brown might have motivated her OSP soldiers a little too much in their ambush/murder of LaVoy and kicked the bear in the balls.

  2. Alfred E. Neuman

    Reblogged this on The Lynler Report.

  3. Perhaps he was reaching to disarm as commanded by the cop?

  4. Turns out Shawna closely mirrors Victorias account. There is an update to the original post, plus a lot of useful information in commnets, here:

    One thing: both Victoria and Shawna both appear to have difficulty distinguishing between non-lethal and lethal incoming. We also find it hard to tell, from just the aerial video alone.

    • Well, if they were using pepper balls or something of that sort, usually you would see plumes of pepper dust popping around. Right?

    • Unfortunately Shawna had time to listen to what Victoria said (she said she watched this video [ ] at 7:45 of her audio so she obviously listened to Victoria’s audio, right?) Some of her statements conflict with other things she said, like when she says they were being shot at and trying to stay as low as possible in the back seat of the truck, and she had Victoria’s “head shoved down as low as I can” (5;33) in the back of a crew cab pick up, then they (Ryan B and Victoria) said “They (Feds) shot LaVoy they killed LaVoy” and she said they said “They watched him get shot” (5:43-5:46), Victoria said the same thing “I saw it” at 2:32 on this video. .How did they see anything of the shooting of LaVoy if they were on the floor because the truck was being riddled with bullets and they were trying not to get shot? You’re only an eyewitness to a shooting/killing if you actually see the person being shot, right? Something doesn’t jive, and it’s not just the BS Fed ambush that ended with the death of a good man.

  5. Just listened to the Cox woman’s interview. Hundreds of rounds? Sorry not buying this one at all. If this were true there would be more injured. Something smells really bad here. Good for her she got out so quick n all.

    The interwebz be a hard place to discern truth, local local n local.

    • Like Max said, distinguishing between lethal/non-lethal hitting the vehicle… and under the circumstances, time plus sound perception.

      Another angle? Psychological. Audio of gunfire.

      Remember the taunts at Waco and Ruby Ridge?

      Just conjecture.

    • I think both women could not differentiate between the violence of non lethal rounds/pepper/bangers and lethal incoming. It’s all about their perception.
