Mohave County BOS voted to rename road after LaVoy Finicum
Finicum was killed by a Oregon state trooper when he refused to surrender after occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southern Oregon with the Bundies -- the freeloading ranchers who refused to pay their grazing fees to BLM after extensive litigation. WHY are ranchers supposed to get our very limited resources? THOUSANDS of wild horses are murdered because there is so little food -- so that the Bundies can make a killing off stolen land.

A description of the events leading up to the shooting:
https://www.thestandardnewspaper.net/index.php/15-front-page/1040-should-mohave-county-name-a-road-after-lavoy-finicum

Jennifer Jones-Esposito, currently running for AZ state office, was quoted here:

“He was willing to take a stand for things that most people will never have the courage to do,” said Jennifer Jones-Esposito. “We should never forget what happened to LaVoy. I would erect a monument in his honor if I could afford to do it personally, but changing the name of this one road is absolutely the very, very least we can do to honor his memory.”

Take a stand for what?  THEFT by ranchers?
