Shawna Forde faces the possibility of the death penalty after being convicted of murdering an Arivaca man and his 9-year-old daughter.
Shawna Forde, a founder of the anti-immigration group Minutemen American Defense Corps., has been convicted of murder in the 2009 slayings of an Arivaca man and his nine year-old daughter.

The Pima County jury now must decide whether Forde, 43, should face the death penalty.

Jurors reportedly deliberated for five hours on Friday before leaving for the weekend without announcing a verdict. This morning, after about two hours of deliberation, the jury returned its guilty verdict.

Prosecutors argued that Forde led a raid on the home of 29-year-old Raul Flores on May 30, 2009, looking for drugs and money.

During the raid, Forde shot and killed Flores, as well as his 9-year-old daughter, Bresenia.

Forde also shot Flores' wife during the attack, but she survived, and ultimately armed herself and chased away Forde and her accomplices in a shootout that left one of the attackers, Forde's co-defendant in the shooting, Jason Eugene Bush, wounded.

Originally from Everett, Washington, Forde came to Arizona in early 2009, after a string of violent incidents in her home town, including a near fatal attack on her ex husband.

The jury in the case will return tomorrow morning to begin the penalty phase of the trial.

Burn in Hell, you racist bitch.

I oppose the death penalty and I think you are getting off easy. I would love to see a group of Latinas take you out of your cell into the prison yard, perform unspeakable acts against your person (especially in some very sensitive areas!) and finally send you on your way so you can rendez-vous with Adolf.

Sounds like a woman who just hates and wanted and excuse to get away with murder the worst is the taking of an innocent child's life.

How does it feel when you are on the other side of the abuse, Shawna dear??? Do we all have to carry with the shame and the hastle you have caused us just because you were a foster girl and your husband abused you?? Well, boo-freakin'-hoo. Then you are just taking your personal angry on other people. And that's being a bully. A clean-cut freakin' bully with the mission of making other people's life misserable. Your T-shirt says it all M.A.D. That's what you are. A lunatic with no right to defend America, because you are an embarrasement to everything we stand for. Scumb bag.

If you google her name, the only publications that seem to be carrying this are progressive or out of mainstream sites. Why is that?

Yesterday, a small notice was in the AR. Today, I can find nothing - except stuff like how going to Australia with Oprah changed some woman's life!

How can we get this out to the public? I think if it were highly publicized, it would garner at least as much interest as, say, Charlie Sheen's addictions or Kim Kardashian's posing.

Don't send her to prison. I say send her to Mexico with a sign on her that says she's a minuteman and she killed a Hispanic Girl. Then see what happens to this cold-hearted bitch in Mexico with the Zetas all over her.

"Mein Fuhrer, so nice to see you, you're lookling fit these days".

Shawna Forde... all I can say is good riddance. You give a bad name to the Teutonic folks, such as myself, who prefer to spend our time being self reliant and respectful of any and all peoples with which we share this planet. Human filth like you have no place here; go be with your fucking Fuhrer, wherever he is. Bitch.........................
