Anti-Immigrant Extremist Faces Death Penalty in Arizona


A jury found aspiring right wing anti-immigrant leader Shawna Forde guilty of the execution-style murders of 9 year-old Brisenia Flores and her father Raul. Forde figured that, since they were immigrants, the Flores family had drugs and drug money, which Forde could steal and use to fund her Minuteman border patrol group. Forde inhabited the same political circles as Sheriff Joe Arapaio, J.D. Hayworth, and Glenn Spencer, in whose living room Forde was sitting, using her laptop to send emails about the murders, moments before she was arrested. Forde faces death for the murders, and her two henchmen are next in the docks.
