Minuteman linked to another murder

I blogged earlier this week about the rogue members of the anti-immigration group, the Minutemen, who were arrested for killing a Latino man in Arizona and his 9-year-old daughter.

Now one of those suspects is being held in the murder of another Hispanic man dating back to 1997, according to a story in the Seattle Times.

Jason Eugene Bush, 34, was charged in the stabbing death of a homeless Hispanic man, Hector Lopez Partida, 29.

According to an informant, Bush had bragged about the killing and DNA has linked him to the murder.

Bush and Shawna Forde, 41, both members of a Minutemen group, and Albert Robert Gaxiola, 42, have been charged in the May 30 murder of Raul Flores, 29, and his daughter, Brisenia in Arizona.
Authorities said the suspects believed the victim was involved in drugs
and would have money in his home. They allegedly wanted to use that
money to fund their anti-immigration efforts.

The Minutemen organization says they are against violence but their
sole existence is based on stopping illegal immigration through vigilante
border patrol. These rogue members show what happens when hate consumes
people. We have to speak out against these hateful acts.
