Eyewitness Shawna Cox Exclusive Interview On the Murder of Finicum-CSS Special Report



“In a time of universal deceit, truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

George Orwell


A reader recently wrote to me the following question:

“During the initial stop for several minutes what transpired? No one approached the vehicle. Were words exchanged? The occupants of the white truck waited around. What for? Were they waiting for the LEO’s to approach? After a considerable amount of time, the white truck occupants were probably wondering WTH was going on”.

This exclusive eyewitness interview with Shawna Cox will answer all of these questions and more.

Shawna Cox

Shawna Cox

On Sunday evening, January 31, 2016, I interviewed Shawna Cox on The Common Sense Show. Her conversation with me was filled with exuberance, the same kind of exuberance that one would experience from a traumatic “fight or flight” experience.

After being shot at over 100 times, and lucky to be alive, Shawna was taken into custody. Shawna addresses the question posed and listed above, as she revealed to my audience some very detailed information which is also confirmed from the public accounts of 18 year old Victoria Sharp.

This may be Shawna Cox’s final interview to the media. During the course of the 30 minute interview, she told me she fully expected to be the victim of a gag order issued by a federal judge when she appears in court on Monday to face federal charges of impeding federal officers.

Shawna Cox, working through the health reporter of The Common Sense Show, Katy Whelan, reached out to me on Saturday evening. The interview, itself, was primarily about the harrowing events on January 26th in which LaVoy Finicum was executed by the FBI.

The Purpose of the Trip

Ammon Bundy and his companions were on their way to meet with the Sheriff from nearby John Day and commingle with local ranchers who stood in support of their cause. Music and festivities were also the order of the day. This is why 18-year-old singer, Victoria Sharp, was accompanying the party as they tried to make their way to John Day.

First Encounter

As the two cars, comprising the caravan, were making their way to John Day. they were pulled over at the first roadblock. At first, neither side did anything in what could be described as a silent stand-off. The occupants of the vehicles were not given any instructions (e.g. to exit the vehicle, etc.). Finally, in an attempt to show peaceful intent, Ryan Payne put both hands out of the truck through the open window, to show he was not armed, and he was promptly shot at with the bullet striking metal of the truck between the window and the mirror.



A Fateful Decision

At that point, the driver of the first vehicle, Lavoy Finicum made a fateful decision to escape the gunfire and reach the protection of the Sheriff waiting for them at John Day.

As Finicum sped away, federal authorities were in pursuit. Very quickly, they came upon a second roadblock. Cox stated that it was at that point that Payne begged Finicum to pull over and he kept saying that we have to reach the Sheriff.

The Second Roadblock

Upon reaching the second roadblock, Finicum attempted to swerve to the side of the road and the truck was stuck in a snowbank.

According to Cox, Finicum exited the vehicle with his hands up and said:

“We have women in the car don’t shoot!:

According to Cox, and her account is backed up by Victoria Sharp, Finicum had his hands in the air as he faced the FBI agents who were stationed in the trees and said:

“We are going to the Sheriff….well, just go ahead and shoot me.” This was all said with his hands in the air. Finicum (was) immediately shot upon exiting the car, several times, and was, again, shot at repeatedly while he lie in the snow dying.

Attempted Second Degree Murder of the Occupants in the Truck

Immediately, the occupants had red lasers on their bodies as the scurried for cover in the truck. Immediately after Finicum was killed, the truck came under fire. No orders were issued to the occupants, and as it was at the first roadblock, firing bullets at the occupants of the truck was the first order of the day.

Cox believes that the vehicle was struck at least one hundred times. Both women were hysterically screaming to “please stop shooting”  as the two women were begging for their lives.

This entire event, complete with two roadblocks, unprovoked gunfire and FBI agents in the trees could only be described as an “old west ambush”.

With no movement in the truck, and after firing over 100 rounds, the FBI finally issued its first order to surrender. They ordered the male occupants out of the vehicle, followed by the females.

The Arrests

I have had multiple law enforcement personnel write to me and express shock and horror that the FBI never attempted to check on the status of Finicum.

Victoria Sharp was not charged and arrested and was dumped at a Safeway parking lot with no money and only the clothes on her back. Shawna Cox was charged with impeding federal officers (I am still scratching my head on this one trying to make sense of the charge.

As a footnote, and as a precondition of her release, Shawna Cox was ordered to have all guns at her Utah home removed. After the guns were removed, her son-in-law, sitting in close proximity to the guns was suddenly and mysteriously caught in a fire in which all the guns and ammunition went up in smoke. Shawna’s son-in-law was killed in the event.


Please consider the fact that Victoria Sharp is an 18 year old kid who was not even part of the dispute. She was there to musically perform in John Day and the FBI attempted to murder this girl without so much as an opportunity to surrender peacefully.

What did these seven occupants do to warrant a “shoot first order”? They did nothing, but they were never given the opportunity to surrender before being fired upon, on two different occasions. And as Shawna Cox put it “Lavoy was murdered in cold blood by the FBI, he had his hands in the air until he was shot”.

Shawna added, as a footnote, that when the last man was taken into custody, they were asked if there were any others left in the truck. They responded that they were the last. The FBI promptly proceeded to fire over 100 more rounds into the vehicle after the vehicle was vacated.

Is this the kind of country that you want to live in? Steve Quayle was correct when he said on my show, regarding his new book, that the Nazi’s won the war and it can be accurately stated that the Lavoy Finicum was murdered by the American version of the Gestapo.

    Lord, if this is true, and it has to be because no one would come up with a lie like this, we are all in much more trouble than we thought! I’m sure LaVoy’s truck has been impounded as evidence, but can anyone get pictures of it and the bullet holes in it? Pretty difficult to conceal, much less justify, over 100 shots being fired, and it’s Prima Facie evidence that Cox is telling the truth and the FBI is an out of control group of………And the incident in Utah…..when, where, etc? That has received no pres anywhere! If the sheriff in Oregon is worth his salt, he will do his job, take a stand and bring the facts about this out into the light! I’m sure I saw an interview wherein he said the actions against Finicum were initiated by his department! The purported facts in this case are mind numbing if true, and if they are someone has to bring them out! Wasn’t there a congressman or senator that was involved in this? He is a perfect candidate to break this open! If the Feds do their usual, OKC/Ruby Ridge, they will with hold all the evidence until destruction is allowed and all opportunity for a counter investigation will be lost. OKC: the building was razed, everything hauled away and placed in a fenced compound with no access till it was totally destroyed! his cannot be allowed to happen here….if it is, it will be a green light on anyone dissenting with the government! Spooky stuff!

    It is so sad to realize that the people of this once great country care only about the freaking superbowl than the atrocities committed by our government in a daily basis. The putrid main stream media aggressively pushing the official version of the events and calling domestic terrorist those who dare to challenge the official version.
    Well, I just hope that when the economic collapse happens we get rid of this corrupt government in the process. I am just so disappointed and sad and disgusted.

  3. Diane February 1, 2016 at 8:25 am

    Thank You Dave Hodges for Shawna’s story. I shared the show I got the link from Santilli’s feed.

  4. Diane V. Ransom February 1, 2016 at 8:28 am

    Thank You. Great show. Thank you for the article also. Yes I have been praying for LaVoy’s family,the rest involved and all of America.

  5. Mike February 1, 2016 at 8:33 am

    The TREE OF LIBERTY has been watered with the blood of an AMERICAN PATROIT ! May he rest in peace

  6. School House February 1, 2016 at 8:41 am

    Curious if the Grant County Sheriff has said anything about all of this???

  7. Desert Chick February 1, 2016 at 9:07 am

    Considering this is the same criminal outfit which perpetrated the siege at Ruby Ridge and the inferno at Waco, did we really expect thugs like this to change their tactics? And things are far worse, now, in this country than they were then. This type of criminal behavior will just escalate, because the dumbed down masses do not care about anything beyond their iCrap phone. When it comes to their doorstep, and it is too late at that point, then they will realize they should have taken all this far more seriously than they did.

    I think the FBI wanted to kill that day. I wonder if these agents are even really American citizens? We have an impostor president (no pedigree, no papers, no real identity), why not fed agents too? I’m perplexed by how many American citizens are going along with this agenda and that of our kabalist government.

  9. SWIFT February 1, 2016 at 10:29 am

    This interview supports what Victoria Sharp has stated. It also explains in terrible detail why Special Agent Greg Bretzing left so many details out of his so-called “transparent” media briefing. This interview, standing alone, exposes Bretzing as just another serial liar and FBI team player scum bag. But, in the FBI, being a scum bag and serial liar is considered a “career enhancing” move.

  10. CT February 1, 2016 at 11:15 am

    What an interview! It is God’s Providence that Shawna is able to get the word out about what she witnessed. This was the cold-blooded murder of a decent man. They can’t have a man like that running around talking sensibly and reasonably about the rights codified in the Constitution. It might get people to think they have redress of grievances toward a lawless government.

    This, yet another murder/assassination of an American citizen on American soil for exercising their freedom of speech, by cruel corrupt government mercenary cowards shows the depth of depravity our so called “federal government” has sunken to. The arming of bureaucratic governmental agencies and federalization of local law enforcement offices by reason of the NDAA and (non)Patriot Act has sealed the direction of what once was a somewhat free USA to a total totalitarian/authoritarian state. Traitors they all are that condone such treasonous murder!
    We are gone… if they take our guns and any illusion that we still exist a free country…well then just begin to speak a truth and see what happens. Step on the wrong toes and they will lock you up in jail or a nut-house…or drug or assassinate/murder you.
    And with the exception of a few folks the country remains clueless and apathetically distracted. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?
    I liken it to the illusion that we are in a plane that has emergency glide capability…our engine is lost…yet the plane continues in glide in motion so the passengers are oblivious and think it’s still think the plane is flying cause they have their iPod ear pieces in and cant hear anything but the latest pop-trend…they dont know the engine has stopped THE PLANE’S NOT FLYING AMERICA we are gliding now…and where we land will be either be rough, smooth in the desert dunes, or maybe the side of a mountain…nobody knows. One thing is sure that it wont be landing at home sweet home as we know it…PRAY FOR A GOOD PILOT…thank you Lord Jesus!
    I pray for the Finicum family and all concerned. Lord give them on trial strength and a mouth to shame the wicked with wisdom from the Lord!

  13. WhiteOne February 1, 2016 at 2:49 pm

    Dave – I just wanted to pass on my condolences to the Finicum Family. I’ve listened to all your interviews around this horrible situation, and with Ammon Bundy. My heart aches for everyone involved – including you, Katy, and really, all Americans. It is too sad. I have long felt that something really terrible is going to happen in America and I fear that it is close. The rest of us won’t be far behind.

    FYI: I moved most of my family out of Sydney, Australia in 1988 as I foresaw the world ahead. Don’t ask me how…but unfortunately, for me, this is like watching a movie unfold that I’ve already seen. I’ve spent years hoping that I was crazy – as most of my friends have believed – but now, I don’t see any way this can be stopped.

    Tell Katy to get onto GcMAF pronto! No doubt Ted will help her. And please wish her luck from me.

    Take care all of you – I don’t want to hear that you’ve been taken down (nor do you, I suppose).

    Thank you for all you do

    I have several issues with the FBI’s released aerial footage of what transpired. The first is time stamps have been blacked out. During the course of the footage you will notice a few pauses and frame changes and due to the time stamp being blocked you cannot account for lost time. The first cut happens @ 2:40 then continues to roll until the video pauses @ 3:54. What I would like to know and have not heard anyone else mention this yet is WHO IS IN CUSTODY AT THE 3:54 MIN MARK WHEN THE VIDEO PAUSES(BOTTOM RIGHT OF SCREEN)???!!! When the video continues @ 4:03 you can see this man (white, bald) being turned around and led to the back of a gov vehicle. Seconds after this happens the screen goes dark with the message: “There is a passage of approx. 3 minutes and 47 seconds while the truck sits not moving”. Without time stamps how are we to know that is what truly transpired during that blackout. Then the video comes back @ 4:40 just in time to see Finicum take off. My guess is they obviously did not want us to see the part where they shot at him unprovoked when he stuck his head/arms out of the window that caused him to flee in the first place. But someone please tell me; who was that man in custody? was he taken from the vehicle during one of the times the film was cut?!? Let me know your thoughts Dave and others, Thanks and God Bless you all!

    Guess the question of will Americans fire on fellow Americans has been answered

  16. TyrantHunter February 1, 2016 at 5:29 pm

    Since the FBI tyrants see fit to execute innocent American citizens by using many bullets, perhaps it should be the goal of willing patriots to show how effective one shot, one kill is when dropping FBI tyrants.


  17. Jeremy February 1, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    You have no clue about anything related to the NSDAP. This government has been in control of jewish banking for over 100 years. “Nazis” don’t run anything, and using that phrase goes to prove your Zionist agenda. You, as well as most of your bloggers are nothing but confused evangelicals. Keep up with your nonsense. The true White Nationalist movement is growing. It won’t be “prayer warriors” who win the war.

  18. Peach February 1, 2016 at 6:51 pm

    Where did the shooter come from? Was he taking a s___ in the woods? Looked odd to me.

  19. Philip February 1, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    We’ve all heard Pastor Niemuller’s famous words, “first they came for the trade unionists”, etc. But history has other lessons. The Alan tribe along the Volga nearly 800 years ago sent frantic emissaries to the Russians for assistance as the Mongols bore down upon them. They warned that if the Rusians would not help, they would be next. The Alans were wiped out without assistance, and the Russians were next. People always think it can’t – or won’t – happen to them, until it does. I need no lessons, My experience with the FBI and others in this criminal government goes back decades. I have seen their perversion, their abject cruelty, their patience mixed with provocations (this takes some explaining)…..I have seen their gloating.

    They are sick, psychopathic, liars, and murderers. I am not a keyboard warrior.

  20. Martin February 1, 2016 at 8:16 pm

    “The FBI promptly proceeded to fire over 100 more rounds into the vehicle after the vehicle was vacated.
    Is this the kind of country that you want to live in?”

    Well no. But the average American would say yes. They still think they can trust the government and that this is the greatest country on God’s green earth. They have no idea that the US is a beast of a government that has spewed propaganda to the American people for many years. Justification for Viet Nam war is just one example of propaganda told to Americans. The events of 911 are another. Most Americans think that their government is upright and trustworthy and that only those bad countries like Russia, Cuba, China and North Korea will lie to and abuse their citizens. The US? Why they are pure as the driven snow and God fearing to boot. The people have a lot to learn. But they are learning and this incident in Oregon is just one of the teachers.

  21. Lee B. February 1, 2016 at 10:05 pm

    Thanks Dave for the best article yet I have seen on this murder. It does not surprise me at all because it just runs along the same lines as Waco and Ruby Ridge and the coverups of the OKC bombing. No justice was ever done so we cannot expect the killings of dissidents to stop. Nobody ever paid a price.

  22. CHR1ST1ANSOLD1ER February 1, 2016 at 10:56 pm

    All due respect to the family, friends & concerned individuals of this murdered “RED LIST” victim. This is another tragic, but not surprising road sign, towards full blown destruction.
    Unfortunately, just as NINE ELEVEN has never & will never see justice, this & any meaningful attempts to stand against the NW0, will end in a repeat of “NOTHING DONE, NOTHING CHANGED!” (it grieves me to say that)
    I’m also sad to say that that’s because, Lord Jesus Christ has us all under SEVERE Judgement! (& not just this proverbial nation, but literally all individuals!)
    May God continue to be long suffering towards His wayward children! God bless you & yours greatly for continuing the good fight Dave! Shalom

  23. Ron Neil February 1, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    Superb. Thank you.

  24. Robert Dziok February 2, 2016 at 1:33 am

    I’m a Vietnam era veteran and my considered opinion is that LaVoy Finicum had more courage, backbone and character than all of them hiding in the trees and bushes combined. I would not want what they did to him on my soul let alone how they did it. Now they can all go back to their government offices waiting to collect pensions. They earned their pound of silver.

  25. JC Lincoln February 2, 2016 at 3:19 am

    We simply cannot allow this information to get out. Can you imagine the damage that would be done to the FBI?
    We must uphold the integrity of our Law Enforcement Agencies even when they make a mistake and murder someone in cold blood. You have to consider the greater good – the good of the many outweigh the good of the few or the one.
    And sometimes it’s necessary for one man to die for the sake of the nation……..you know……..like Jesus!

  26. jliberty3000 February 2, 2016 at 12:38 pm

    apparently BOB OWED these criminals to shoot him. can u believe this guy? and he’s a 2nd amendment guy?

    DESPICABLE jackass.

    these leo’s AMBUSHED & MURDERED him.

  27. JoyceM February 2, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    This is an amazing interview, thanks to you and her for sharing with us. Also look up “Shoshone sisters who couldn’t beat the BLM”, Tim DeChristopher vs the BLM.

    if it wasnt true they would already of had an autopsy and released the dash cam video and the photos of the truck with all of the bullet holes in it and wheres the audio tapes.

    The media has moved on to more “important” issues….useless dribble that we aren’t interested in. LaVoy Finicum was executed, a thrill kill. We don’t treat terrorists that way, it’s devastating. This Bretzing has a history in Colorado of criminal behavior, of course it doesn’t rise to this level. He’s a lying pig. Keep this on the front page, or it will fade away and nobody will be held accountable. Pressure on the Agency, Governor and Loretta Lynch might put the elites into the spotlight. LaVoy is an inspiration, the thugs that shot him hide in the shadows. Let’s see who they are, name them.

  33. Peetie February 3, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    The murder of Lavoy was merely a show of power by the FBI, which wants to send the message to the public that any resistance whatsoever in an encounter, or even surrender, with agents will result in death. It’s terrorism.

  34. AngelFire February 4, 2016 at 8:13 pm


    It would appear from the FBI video that the officer who came from the woods did NOT shot LaVoy Finicum with his gun but with a TASER!!!!!

    The officer appears to use his LEFT hand to TASER Mr. Finicum and then subsequently pulls out his gun from his holster with his RIGHT hand! As he removes himself from the line of fire he appears to drop the taser in the snow!

    This means that the FBI had “control” of the situation and that there was no justification for any gun fire.

    It means Mr. Finicum was murdered
    It means FBI special agent Bretzling deliberately misinformed the public with his description of the shooting!
