US Army Sergeant: LaVoy Finicum Murder Video Had Inconsistencies
US Army veteran Sgt. E-5 Allen Lardieri spoke out concerning the FBI release of the video of the murder of LaVoy Finicum. He used some technical terms, of course, but in his estimation, the video was not recorded according to anything that those who would have been engaged in, and he confirms that it was not drone footage, but was, in fact, a manned aerial vehicle.
Lardieri says the system that recorded the murder of Finicum is known as an Orion ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) platform. He said he would never release where he gets that information from, but does go on to point out problems with the video and why those problems exist.
"It's extremely relevant to this," he added. "It is a side that is very unique that I don't think you or myself haven't heard."
Those who operate the vehicles and the cameras that obtain the video footage are known as ASOs (Aerial Surveillance Operators). Lardieri says that the field of operation is very limited concerning this kind of operation, military-occupational-specialty-wise.
According to Lardieri, an individual communicated to him some "inconsistencies" on the behalf of the operators of the vehicle that captured the video. However, the question is were this inconsistencies "operator error" or merely intentional maneuvers to "keep the video vague""?
Lardieri confirms that this particular platform is found "consistently on manned aerial vehicles, not drones." So, we discover that the footage is not from a drone, but there is a person operating the vehicle and the video capture on board.
The person that relayed to Lardieri that the Orion system was the one used in this operation said that he had viewed the same screen for 506 hours of combat.
