  •  Yup cause arming a child molester and sending him (9+ / 0-)

    to a school is the best way to protect out children, right?

    Matt Bors said it best (and he didn't even have a child molester in it! maybe it's time for an update):

    •  You do realize this has absolutely nothing to do (9+ / 0-)

      with guns or schools, don't you?

      Simcox was a scumbag from the word go and quite the pals with Forde and her scumbag cronies....

      Oh wait, there is something about it gun related,  If Junior's wife hadn't been able to get to Junior's gun and return fire driving Forde and her accomplices off when they came back to finish her off,  wounding one in the process,  there is a good chance that there would have been no Justice for Junior or little Brisenia

      That shot left physical evidence,  blood,  that allowed the police to trace and place the shooter, Bush, in Gaxiola's car and at the scene.....After being wounded by 3 shots herself...

      Gina was the hero in a truly sad and fucking disgusting situation, luckily her other daughter was overnighting at a friends house and also luckily she had access to a gun or she would be dead too, the scumbags possibly never caught and the other daughter would have lost everyone in her family....

      During the trial, jurors were told that Forde and her accomplices gained entry to the Flores home by claiming they were officials looking for fugitives and that the suspects had the expectation of finding money, and drugs that could be sold to finance Forde's group, the Minutemen American Defense, which patrolled Mexico's border with Arizona. When they found no drugs, the intruders took jewelry but, prosecutors said, not before fatally shooting the child and her father. [5]
      Gina Marie Gonzalez, 31, wife of Raul Flores and mother of Brisenia, in the home during the attack was shot three times. She survived because she pretended to be dead. Gonzalez called 911 emergency services when the assailants left the home. While Gonzalez was on the phone, the assailants re-entered the home; Gonzalez fired her husband's handgun, wounding Bush. Gonzalez identified two men, one white, the other Latino, and a white woman as the attackers. Gonzales said Bush, who is white, had murdered her daughter and husband.

      An early exchange within the 911 call is as follows:

          Gonzalez: "They shot me and I pretended like I was dead. My daughter was crying. They shot her, too.

          Operator: "Are they still there, the people who, that shot them?"

          Gonzalez: "They're coming back in! They're coming back in!" (Gunfire.)[6]

      Arriving at the death sentence was difficult, said Angie Thomas who sat on the jury. A picture of Brisenia presented during the trial was a significant factor in reaching the decision, she said. "A little girl, with bright red fingernails; she's wearing a white T-shirt and turquoise-colored pajama bottoms. She's on a love seat. It's a perfect, innocent picture until you realize that half of her face has been blown off."[7]

      The child's mother, Gina Gonzalez, was shot three times during the crime but survived. "She testified that her daughter was shot point-blank as the girl pleaded for her life."[8]
