Woman suspects shooting, sexual assault tied to her activism on illegal immigration
EVERETT -- First a north Everett man was seriously wounded when a narrow-faced stranger burst into his home Dec. 22 and began shooting.
On Monday night, while the shooting victim was still in the hospital, his wife called police to report that a trio of intruders had just ambushed her in her kitchen. She was beaten, sexually assaulted and slashed on the back of her neck with a knife, she told officers.
Everett police acknowledge they aren't quite sure what to make of the violent events recently reported at the home in the 2200 block of Rockefeller Avenue.
The woman, Shawna Forde, 41, is national director of Minutemen American Defense, a group that lobbies against illegal immigration and sends volunteers to Arizona to monitor the nation's border with Mexico.
Early Friday, a story was posted on her group's Web site detailing what Forde said happened at her home. The posting is complete with photographs of Forde, displaying bruises and other injuries to her face, thighs and buttocks.
Forde, a one-time candidate for Everett City Council, insists the violence is somehow linked to her activism, including investigations she says she's been making into drug cartels and human trafficking rings.
"I am not dealing with people who make cookies," she said Friday, adding that she wanted her story to be told. "These are dangerous people."
Detectives are investigating what happened Monday, Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz said. He confirmed police and paramedics were summoned to the Rockefeller home and a report was taken, but added there are few details he can provide at this point.
He urged anyone with information to contact police.

National Director "Shawna Forde" brutally attacked
And so it begins.
This is a confused story so it would be prudent to wait until the police complete their investigation.
lock and load.
Sounds like they need to be under some kind of guard. Can’t count on the “authorities” to do the job so I guess it’s up to the folks again.
There's something that seems a little odd about this, although I can't put my finger on it.
I can. She is beaten up. In Mexico they are killing and beheading. Yet she is beaten up?
Well her husband was shot.
Yup! Narrow-faced stranger?
The only description of an attacker that I saw is white.
I have to say they're not terribly convincing. Multiple, parallel, superficial wounds. Many are on the right side, which makes it easier for a right-hander to self-inflict.
Although her face wound is on the left side.
I'm not a crime scene investigator/forensics expert, but I have made a hobby of looking at fake hate crimes, and this does look like on of them to this untrained eye.
Hope I'm wrong, because it'll just offer another weapon for the open borders crowd to attack the rule of law folks with, but I don't think I am.
Yeah, life threatening GSWs tend to be a little harder to fake.
I wonder if she faked this attack to gain some of the sympathy her husband had been getting? They were headed for divorce although I don't know how much acrimony was involved.
Actually, I'm getting WAY past my level of expertise, so I'll refrain from further speculation.
Or it could be some locals who are sympathetic to illegals.
I am with you; something is not right here. I looked at her pictures, and she claims she was hit with a baseball bat or something similar. I can tell you, if she was hit with a baseball bat the wounds would be much more severe. She also said she did not want to get into the details of the “rape” and in the report the police did not have much to say. I would assume she went to the hospital and had an exam and evidence collected so if you are going to post all of this why not give more details and why do I get the sense the Police are a little skeptical.... Something is just not right here.
How is it that these people are not armed to protect themselves and their homes?
ESPECIALLY AFTER THE FIRST ATTACK????
First a north Everett man was seriously wounded when a narrow-faced stranger burst into his home Dec. 22 and began shooting.
The authorities will be right out to confiscate the "folks" guns.
It could have been some of O’s civilian police practicing for their debut.
0bama’s approach to ‘civilization’. It will not be pretty.
