    Shawna Forde was an outcast from other Minuteman groups. No one supported her other than the con-man and fraud, Jim Gilchrist of the tiny Minuteman Project. The two Shawna teamed up with for the robberies were longtime criminals with no association with any Minuteman groups at any time.

    What we have here are a group of criminals robbing and killing a drug dealer. This sort of thing happens all the time, but this time the media has a bit of a twist to sensationalize this crime. It's the Minutemen!!! Knock yourselves out.

    This woman and like many others who are attracted to the hyper-nationalist, anti-immigrant groups was a sociopath. The group she belonged to gave her the impetus and the excuse she needed to round up a gang of followers and then execute violence for her own personal gain and to feed her apparent need to feel power.

    A warning:

    1. To promote the innocent killing of an American Family as an example to a group they didn't belong too(illegal aliens) is a detestable way of thinking, that is FAR from American, and FAR from what FREEDOM and JUSTICE stand for.

    2. It has been proven the family are Hispanic Americans.

    3. There is no "detraction" from the cruel disregard for American life by these anti-immigrants.

    4. Every human within the juristiction of the United States, is afforded their Rights, THAT'S THE AMERICAN WAY!!

    5. An insurrection is a violent uprising...hahaha by illegals?? backwoods militias are stockpiling guns and threatening the Obama administration...and "illegals are the insurgents??" hahahaha

    It seems relatively clear that the murder victims and the woman who survived were US citizens. The male victim's grandfather is here in the United States and a person being here illegally at that age is very rare. Also, if one listens to the 911 call, he or she can hear that Ms. Gonzalez has no accent whatsoever when she speaks English.

    It concerns me how anxious some people are to either perpetrate, encourage, or condone violence against others. Even if one disagrees with or dislikes another person, that is no excuse to to kill, attack, or even to defame that person. It would be well to look closely at those who perpetrate or advocate violence or defame another group because if you happen to get on their bad side one day, you are likely to receive similar treatment.

    Should this be a warning for illegal aliens? Our government has and is failing to protect the american citizens so many have become disgusted with inaction and turning to independent citizen actions. What has not been disclosed is if this group of mexicans were illegals and this distracts from the truth of the story and the actions of the group. Illegals are here in america at their own risk with no protections from our laws and justice.

    Our economy is floundering and jobs occupied by illegal aliens who flaunt our laws and the rights of americans.

    If we don't put our military on our borders to stop this insurrection by illegal foreign nationals these kinds of groups are going to continue and grow. This is a survival issue for the american people and the politics have gotten in the way of america being for americans.
