Internet ^ | 04/19/2012 | unknown

Posted on 04/29/2012 5:56:30 AM PDT by loucon

On April 3, 2012 at about 7:37 p.m., Cordell and his girlfriend Ronisha arrived at the Taco Bell drive thru located on 7233 S. 51st Avenue in Laveen Arizona. At approxaimately 7:39 p.m. Cordell finished placing his order and was asked by a Taco Bell employee to pull up to the front of the restaurant and wait while they prepared his order. As Cordell exited the drive thru, Cordell admits that he had to quickly apply his brakes to avoid running over Adkins.

I can't verify this source, although it appears to be very professional in its composition.

The petition goes on to conclude that there is sufficient probable cause to arrest and charge him with 2nd degree murder and felony misconduct involving weapons (illegal conceal carry).

Still, nothing from the LSM

Two things:

Arizona does not require a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Should have stated why it was illegal concealed carry. Phrobited person, or what?

What the heck is a .12 gauge shotgun?

If the writer can’t get these two things right it doesen’t matter what other leagalese he copies, the whole thing is suspect.

It sounds like someone is trying to make a reverse Zimmerman/Trayvon thing here in AZ. IIR, the shooter was black, the shootee as white. He apparently was the aggressor. There were no arrests because the shooter was within his rights to defend himself with the use of deadly force. Doesn’t depend on skin color.

The LSM probably won’t report on it because it doesn’t fit the picture of a black person being victimized, instead, defending themselves. Can’t have that.

Adkins was developmentally disabled. The aggressor was Cordell. Adkins allegedly shouted at him after Cordell nearly hit Adkins in the parking lot. Cordell and girlfriend claimed that Adkins swung at the driver's window with a baseball bat. No weapon was found at the scene. Then Cordell decided it might have been a brown dog leash or an open hand that Adkins swung at the window. At which time Cordell shot Adkins in the chest. Shouting at someone and shooting them are NOT morally equal.

The petition refers to:

13-3102. Misconduct involving weapons; defenses; classification; definitions

A. A person commits misconduct involving weapons by knowingly:

2. Carrying a deadly weapon except a pocket knife concealed on his person or concealed within his immediate control in or on a means of transportation if the person is under twenty-one years of age;

Although the reports I've read from local sources say the the shooter was 22.

Local news report of the incident:

The biggest problem from the shooter side is that he was able to recover his gun and charge it, which takes at least a little time.

Also, if the victim was holding on to the dog’s leash, was that with his left or right hand?, which is important, because if he also banged with his right or left fist on the driver’s side window, leaving a “fist print”, how long was the leash?

Could he do so while his dog remained in front of the car on leash, or could the driver have driven away with no dog in front of his car? Granted, he could have driven over the dog, but that even weak defense would be gone if there was no dog there.

To the shooter’s credit, he called the police and remained on the scene, which had he fled would have ruined him. But he still will have a hard time justifying the shooting.

@CPOSharky, perhaps you should first look up the meaning of "concealed." I did not state a person could not carry a handgun, I stated it cannot be concealed without a permit. A .12 gauge shotgun is not exactly a weapon that you can conceal inside your sweatpants unless you have modified it, now is it. Also, if you are in your car the weapon may not be concealed within your immediate control. See A.R.S. section 13-3102(A)(2). Also, it appears that you express opinions without understanding the subject matter first. I do state why in Cordell's case he was in possession of a "concealed" weapon and discuss the definition that has been applied by the Arizona Court of Appeals at pp. 5-6. Finally, I assure you that nothing that I wrote is "copied." The petition is intended to be read by the district attorney's office. I cite a number of cases that support my argument. I finish law school this semester, I am not a lawyer, and the "leagalese" (sic) is not intended to impress you, rather to persuade the district attorney to uphold his oath of office. Take a look at this from Bill O'Reilly if you get a chance: Why the Media and Politicians fear African-Americans

Arizona does NOT require a permit to carry concealed.

Go look up the definition of a shotgun gauge. A .12 (decimal one two)would by definition would have a bore diameter equivalent to an EIGHT pound lead sphere.
