Police are saying more about a shooting at a Taco Bell Tuesday night in which one man died. They’re also identifying the victim as 29-year-old Daniel Adkins.
About 7:30 p.m., a 22-year-old man and his girlfriend ordered food at the Taco Bell drive-thru and were told to pull up while their order was prepared. At the same time, Adkins stepped around a corner into the path of the vehicle and angry words were exchanged between he and the driver. They got into an altercation and Adkins was shot once by the driver. He died at the scene.
More from Jammie Wearing Fool:The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested. At first, the couple claimed that Adkins had a metal pipe that he swung at them — but it turns out he was holding a dog leash with his yellow lab on the other end. Family members want that driver arrested, but he’s claiming self-defense.
In this case the shooter’s name hasn’t been released, so at least he’s spared from Spike Lee tweeting his address.
But why don’t we know his name? Like Florida, Arizona has a stand your ground law but nobody seems interested in any comparisons.
Can you imagine the furor if a “white hispanic” gunned down a black man with the mental capacity of a 12-year-old in a state governed by Jan Brewer? Heck, Obama would take up residence for a month if he thought it could win some votes, the Justice Department would be crawling through the state and the media that has mangled the Trayvon Martin story would gladly skip town from Sanford for the latest outrageously outrageous outrage.
Instead, we haven’t seen a single story on the national news about this story. Why is that? Where is the 911 call that NBC can manipulate to gin up the racial outage?
Of course there won’t be marches, death threats, a media firestorm and a Federal investigation by the Holder Justice Department about the shooting in Phoenix about a mentally disabled “white Hispanic” for the simple reason that the “white Hispanic” community does not have an Al Sharpton, a Jesse Jackson or hundreds of other professional race baiters … yet. The “white Hispanic” community has not been around long enough for its grievance industry to have developed as it has in the black community. La Raza is all about reversing the outcome of the Mexican War, not about enriching the high priests of racial grievances. But give them time. Events like this are made for the skilled demagogic racial entrepreneur. Someone is letting an opportunity pass. If Obama had a son, he would not look like Daniel Adkins.
