Taco Bell Shooting Victim was Holding Leash, Not Weapon (Black man shoots unarmed Hispanic)
Fox Phoenix ^ | April 4, 2012 | Fox Phoenix

LAVEEN - 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.

The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested.

The guy was shot down with his dog in the street. Where will Jessie and MSNBC’s token black be on this incident?

'The dog, Lady, stayed by Adkins' side until the Humane Society came. Adkins lived with his mom and dad. He's 29, but his family says he's mentally disabled and has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old. He didn't drive, and walked wherever he went.'

He's done for. He shot a mentally ill latino dog owner.

Maybe the shooter was a white-black man like Obama.

Let’s see. Man in car—a weapon in and of itself—shoots a guy because he almost ran over the guy and that scared him. The victim, outside of the running car, waves his fists towards the annoyed driver. The driver pulls out his gun and shoots the victim. I am surprised he did not shoot the dog, too.

“The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested.”

So, apparently there is some question as to whether this was justified as self-defense. This is something beyond irony.

The guy has no cop training, I'd guess.

I’m open-minded. Let’s wait for the facts. Guessing it’s a case of poor judgement.

I don’t feel compelled to issue a bounty, nor describe the victim as having a likeness to my kin, nor parading around like a race-baiting asshole... Maybe the driver felt threatened, who knows?

0bama and H0lder need to issue a bounty. Their son did it.

This happened three days ago. Where is the Lynch Mob Media? We need doctored photos and 911 calls. Where are the bold pronouncements of cold blooded murder? Will a Congressman bring a yellow lab to the House floor? La Raza needs to get some wanted posters printed up. Father Flegermouse needs to set up a shrine with chalupas on it.

Will the MSM post pictures of the victim as an 11-year-old? Will ABC lighten pictures of the shooter to make him appear white? Will NBC alter video and audio tapes to fool the viewers?

I don't either but that's not what I expect from the media, politicians and professional activists. You can't possibly miss the eery coincidences here. It's almost like a photographic negative of the Zimmerman/Martin incident.

When the opportunity permits, I’ll make it a point to help bridge the divide. I’m optimistic. Our potential far exceeds the animosity the Left is peddling.

“The shooter’s name has not been released. The investigation is still ongoing.”

It would have been nice if Zimmerman had extended the same courtesy.

My intent is to neutralize the demagoguing flame-throwers by highlighting the absurdity of what they have done with the Zimmerman/Martin shooting. I don't find any comfort or humor in the deaths of either Trayvon Martin or Daniel Adkins.

Both cases should be seen and judged by the merits of the actions of the participants. Unfortunately political vultures would not allow that to happen and I think they need to be fought.

does the black male have a carry permit? did he exit the car to shoot or did he shoot from the comfort of his bucket seat?

is swinging a fist in the air towards a vehicle considered a deadly threat?

in Calif, peds have right of way always, especially with a ‘service dog’ - is it different in Arizona?

was this a “Trayvon revenge” killing?

any comment from the TacoBell dog, Paco?

Apparently, it is.

I’ve been noticing quite a few errors of grammar and syntax in the last year in the media. I love calling the editor, asking whether or not the writer has a liberal arts and/or journalism degree. They invariably do.

Then I start calling out their grammar errors.

Yes, I like tormenting them.

The photo on 17 is from the funeral of a military service member and IIRC his combat dog. I think the dog lay there all during the service and after as well. I imagine the comment on the deceased’s dog staying with the body in the story provoked this image.
