Given the timing and the approach of the anniversary of LaVoy’s meeting with the Grim Reaper, I wanted to try to present a few different angles to the story that haven’t been too fully explored. His murder was just such a truly avoidable and unnecessary act, but it was almost as though the FBI’s Swift Response team, SWAT, and the Oregon Highway Patrol put the entire structure for his execution together, as some sort of evil, vile and sordid live training exercise, cognizant the entire time that it would end with LaVoy lying on his back, on the snow-covered ground, knees slightly bent in his final death throes.
It’s beyond me how anyone could see this as serving justice. It’s beyond me how law enforcement justified such a mission, given all it already knew and all that was already in the works to end this peacefully. It’s beyond me how anyone could say this was warranted and lawful, just because the men who committed the murder held badges.
I do understand there are many fine men in law enforcement, and I have known quite a few of them in my lifetime, and called them my “close friend”. But for some reason, as the corruption continues to grow at all levels of our government, it is now virtually impossible to tell the “good guys” from the “bad guys” in law enforcement. The incongruity of it all is infuriating, since law enforcement by its very charter and definition should not have any “bad guys” within its organizations.
Keep LaVoy’s memory alive and as a reminder to all freedom loving Americans that ultimately in the final analysis, we cannot depend on government to properly defend us from much of anything. The defense of freedom and liberty and one’s self, family and property ultimately falls to each individual of the country, from wherever they may hail. ~ J.O.S.

His name is a hallowed one in the annals of the Patriot movement and the minds of most American Patriots, as a man who was willing to fight for those ideas of freedom and liberty and the Founding principles of America.
