The terrorist threat in America remains the same as it has always been.
The typical America terrorist is a white right-winger. Not just James W. Von Brunn, not just Scott Roeder, now along come Shawna Forde of Buena Vista, Arizona; Jason Eugene Bush of Kingman, Arizona; and Albert Robert Gaxiola of Tucson, Arizona.
These folks are from the Minutemen American Defense, a splinter group from the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps. After they got kicked out of the main group for being even crazier than the average Minuteman, they apparently financed their freelance border patrols with armed robbery, home invasion, and murder.
The story just popped up at CNN.under the headline Rogue Minutemen leader held in fatal home invasion.
Raul Flores thought federal agents had barged with guns drawn into his home in Arivaca, Arizona, in the middle of the night.
The woman and two men wore uniforms and identified themselves as U.S. Marshals. They claimed the house was surrounded. They said they were looking for an escaped prisoner, Flores’ wife told a 911 dispatcher.
But there was no backup waiting outside, and no fugitive. The marshals were imposters.
They had targeted Flores because they suspected he was a drug trafficker and they wanted to rob and kill him, according to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.
As the intruders searched his home, Flores asked one of the men why his handgun was taped. The man responded by shooting and killing Flores.
“Someone just came in and shot my daughter and husband,” Flores’ wife frantically told 911. She tells the police operator that she was shot and left for dead with her husband, Raul Flores, 29, and daughter Brisenia, 9, who were both shot in the head.
