Salt Lake Tribune Gives Misleading LaVoy Finicum Funeral Attendance Numbers

Mainstream media, intent on undermining the popularity of those working to restore the rule of law and support the Constitution, gave misleading attendance numbers of those attending the funeral of murdered protester, LaVoy Finicum.  

The Salt Lake Tribune reported that "Hundreds... pay respects to Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum".  Defending Utah attended the funeral and, though photography was not allowed, we can verify that the numbers in attendance were 3,000+, according to the official mortuary count and the media spokesperson, Cherilyn Eagar.   Unless the Tribune meant 30 hundred, they were trying to get people to believe attendance was low.

KSL, though more accurate than the Tribune, also misled the attendance levels saying, "Roughly 1,000 people" attended.  

The thousands that came to honor Mr. Finicum heard stirring and heart warming accounts of his integrity, love of liberty, love for his family and his devotion to the teachings of the Savior.

  • This Nation will remain the Land of the free only so long as it is the home of brave. A hero is someone who has given his life to something bigger than oneself.

Many people died as a heroes , we will  never forget them. They are our strength. America, LaVoy Finicum is your Strength. Never give up !!!
  • A Hero is someone who has given his life to something bigger than oneself. Victory lies in the battle of the spirits. Those who cannot bravely face danger are the slaves of their attackers. We are only strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. Rest in peace BRAVE MAN ...  We will never forget what you do for your country and for all people around the World !!!
