EVERETT -- The Everett-based leader of a group that she says patrols the nation's borders looking for drug smugglers and illegal immigrants was in an Everett hospital this morning being treated for an apparent gunshot wound in the arm.

I don't believe it. Real Gangster would have killed them by now.
That’s why this sounds more like an attempt to intimidate originating on this side of the border.
Must be some big black cloud hanging over that woman.
I meant nothing racist in using the word black
Or an attempt to promote their organization originating in her
and her ex’s heads.
whoa! ‘intruders’ broke into her home then beat & raped her? wtf?! in washington state?? where was the news??
oh yea, i forgot. she’s not one of the libtards darlings. (i guess the women of ‘the spew’ wouldn’t want to talk to her to try and help)
Not that things like this don't happen, but....not in this case

Hate to say it, but I suspect you are right.
There have just been too many cases like this over the past few years, and they need to be carefully looked at.
“Forde’s rape report triggered a blogosphere backlash, with speculation that the attack could be a hoax.
Forde has dismissed questions as “politics,” and labeled as “ridiculous” any suggestion that she may have somehow simulated her injuries reported in the Dec. 29 incident.”
Seems to me that the “blogosphere backlash” ISN’T coming from the opposition: pro-illegal alien/pro-immigration sites, but rather from certain conservatives/conservative sites who, perhaps, for whatever reason, have some longstanding opposition to certain Minutemen groups, it’s leadership, and/or Shawna personally.
Much of the backlash is coming from patriotic Americans who are active members of reputable Minuteman groups.
The real Minutemen devote much of their time, money & resources into legally assisting U.S. Border patrol in their efforts to curtail illegal immigration which is tearing apart the fabric of our nation and bankrupting our states & municipalities.
Ms. Forde was terminated from Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in February of 2007 for cause.
These people are not vigilantes or racists and they do not pursue Mexican drug cartels.
To do so would require a “death wish”. Members of drug gangs are very good marksmen and use automatic weapons!
Ms. Forde’s problems seem to run much deeper than any illegal activities taking place at our borders.
Thanks. My point exactly.
Anyone knowing Shawna Forde would know that anybody thinking of raping her would be a fool. She could beat a rapist into a pulp with one hand tied behind her back. This babe is a fraud!
Alicia Delaney lives in a house just off the alley. She was getting ready for bed when she heard a popping sound, a car door slam and then the loud rumble of an engine just outside her bedroom window Thursday night.
Thanks. I don’t know Shawna, but I’m inclined (no matter who she is, what group she belongs to, or what she’s done in the past) to take her seriously until there is absolute proof otherwise. But it sounds like folks who know of her don’t or won’t.
If it doesn’t turn out she shot herself, I’m sure she will have been shot because she did something to deserved it. /s off. (or something logic to that effect.)
In all seriousness, this is EXACTLY the reason I hesitate to get involved in ANY organized groups. The infighting I read and hear about disgusts me and is a waste of valuable time. The illegal immigration crisis is FAR too important to be divided and distracted by leadership who seem to be competing over who’s more Patriotic, who deserves the limelight and who has had the bigger b*lls in the game. It’s amazing we get anything accomplished.
Violent attacks in home sparked by politics, victim says[Minutemen American Defense director]
You will not read that in the major press. BUT if she had shot someone that was an illegal Mexican, it would be in banner headlines.
You know you get the conditions you deserve. I hope those that hide these things have a reason to regret it at some point
