It Matters How You Stand

On April 12, 2014 a group of cowboys and non-cowboys, a few armed and the vast majority not, at the behest of a ranching family—the Bundys—came face-to-face with heavily armed federal agents on a patch of desolate dried up river wash in Bunkerville, Nevada. 

Surprisingly and profoundly life, liberty, and property were preserved that day. No one died, no one went to prison, and the Bundy's cows  were returned. One of the cowboys there that day was LaVoy Finicum. Little did he or anyone else know that his standing with the Bundys (2014) was the beginning and his going to Oregon (2016) would be the ending of a profound life's journey.

So what changed in LaVoy’s life, why did he go to the 2014 Bundy Standoff? Why did he go to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in 2016, and why, on his way to a public meeting in the city of John Day, was he shot and killed by Federal Agents? In trying to answer these questions The Center for Self Governance reviewed his personal footage, interviewed his family and those associated with him in Oregon to discover the motivations, frustrations, and resolve that prompted his fateful decisions.

You will be shocked by his own words and actions when compared to the picture painted by the media and cemented into the collective memory of the American mind.

This film gives LaVoy Finicum the opportunity he never got—to tell, in his own words, how he came to his final decision that ended his life in 2016.

The Final Verdict

Everyone who was there with LaVoy on that fateful day, was acquitted in an Oregon Federal Court.

This film gives the dead man his day in court,

and you are the jury—

hearing his side for the first time. 

This presentation showcases the epic battle for control between the Bundy & Finicum family and Local, State, and Federal Government.  This Cowboy's story will stir within the soul of each viewer a need to embark on the challenging endeavor to discover the delicate line that separates preserving and losing life, liberty, and property.
