By now everyone has heard of the tragic shootings of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and others in Tuscon, and the murder of rancher Robert Krentz. Our heartfelt hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
Sadly, much of the violence in Arizona is NOT being reported by the national news media. Many immediately assumed an undocumented immigrant must have murdered Robert Krenz, though police have no suspect. Jan Brewer often claimed headless corpses were often found in the desert, until Arizona Coroners said none were found.
Brisenia Flores, 9 year-old murdered in Southern Arizona by Minutemen.
This week, jury selection begins in the capital murder trial of minutemen, including a national director of the group, for the murders of a Mexican-American family. A nine year old girl, Brisenia Flores, pleaded for her life, but was shot to death anyway. Her father Raúl was shot to death, but Brisenia’s mother was able to find a gun and fend off her attackers. There has been NO national media coverage of this atrocity.
If the murderers had been Muslims or Undocumented Immigrants killing a white family would we be hearing of this? Why is it that Minutemen patrolling the border playing the border patrol receives more media coverage than the slaughter of a Mexican-American family in their own home by gun toting Minutemen? The Minutemen consider themselves patriots, but another term comes to mind for this group…domestic terrorists!
Likewise, there has been no coverage of Rio Rico and Vekol valley shootings of undocumented immigrants who were not involved in drugs and weren’t robbed by men armed with high powered rifles in camouflage, who shoot and then ran. Sheriff Estrada thinks extremists are behind these shootings. Neo-Nazis also patrol the Vekol Valley, including J.T. Ready, an infamous Neo-Nazi leader who has well-documented ties to Arizona Senator Russell Pearce.
