Oregon law enforcement ended its longstanding policy of allowing the domestic terrorists who seized the Malheur national wildlife refuge to come and go as they please, pulling over a convoy of the extremists as they traveled to a community meeting.
Nearly all of the terrorists surrendered. Two -- Ryan Bundy, brother of terrorist leader Ammon Bundy; and LaVoy Finicum, who had told CNN he would not go to prison -- did not. In the ensuing gunfire, Bundy was wounded and Finicum was killed.
Michele Fiore, a Nevada Assemblywoman with ties to the terrorists, says that she understands that Finicum was cooperating with the police when he was killed, having heard it from Lisa Bundy, who says she was phoned by Ammon Bundy from the back of a police cruiser.
White supremacist Cliven Bundy, father of Ammon Bundy, celebrated the dead terrorist's martyrdom: "He was a student of the Constitution. He was interested in freedom, and I think he gave his life where he felt it was best."
In all, police arrested eight people Tuesday linked to the wildlife refuge takeover: five in the traffic stop on Highway 395; two others in Burns; and one in Arizona.
The five arrested at the traffic stop were Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox and Ryan Waylen Payne.
The two arrested in Burns were Joseph Donald O'Shaughnessy and Peter Santilli.
And protester Jon Ritzheimer, who previously made headlines for leading an anti-Islam protest in Arizona, turned himself in to police in Peoria, Arizona, FBI spokesman Kurt Remus said.
All eight people arrested face a federal felony charge of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation or threats, the FBI and Oregon State Police said.
