For the past few days I have been seeing this story on Facebook:
On May 30th 2009 a child and her father were murdered and the wife/mother was shot:
A nine-year-old girl begged for her life before being shot dead along with her father by an anti-immigrant vigilante group, a court heard.
Brisenia Flores was gunned down at point-blank range in her own home in Flores, Arizona, as her terrified mother Gina Gonzalez, who had also been hit, played dead on the floor.
She sobbed as the court was told how she had heard Brisenia's desperate pleas as her killer stood over her.
'I can hear it happening,' Mrs Flores told the court describing how her daughter said: 'Why did you shoot my dad? Why did you shoot my mum?'
'I can hear her telling him to "please don't shoot me."'

The trial is now underway.The prosecution alleges that the child and her father Raul Flores Jr were murdered by a group of vigilantes set up to tackle Mexican immigrants.
Please read the rest of the story. The details are just horrible.
But its getting little or no play in the national media.
Can anyone tell me why?
A nine year old girl and her father were brutally murdered in front of the mother and wife by a racist organisation and it gets no air time?
And of course it happens in the great state of Arizona.
As you will have noticed, that aritcle I quoted from is from England.
I am sure some places are reporting it but as far as I can tell its not getting too much time (if any) in the National News Organisations.
For gods sake, a CHILD was murdered. Not to mention her father.
And the trauma that the mother/wife has to live with for the rest of her life. And what for? For being the "wrong" skin colour.
This is the photo of the beautiful child that was murdered:
I don't understand why this isn't a major story. I had never even heard of it until i saw it on Facebook.
Oh, and surprise, one of the accused is Shawna Forde, the head of the Minutemen American Defence group. A white supremacist organisation that masks itself as "anti-illegal immigration" group.
It just baffles and angers me that this is not getting the attention it should.
Maybe a kossack can tell me why its not. I am stumped.
