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.

This time the Obama henchmen including the MSM will ignore race and attempt to put the focus on ‘gun violence’ if they get cornered into making a statement or doing follow up reports.

If Obama loses the Election, it will be a long cold Winter.
The Rodney King riots will be a joyful distant memory in comparison when Holder's People take it to the streets.

“Is it too much to ask for basic literacy in journalism?”

Yes. How dare you? It is asking far too much of people that they remember a simple, easily applied rule.

This was racial profiling. He thought, just because the man was hispanic that he would racially profile him and shoot him, so shot first.

Someone should issue a bounty.
Maybe the KKK?

I’m sure Holder and Obama would be okay with this.

Really?

Why?

Both dogs stayed by their master until, and even beyond the end. I doubt that it occurred to either dog that their master was a young military hero, or a young mentally challenged man. Dogs don't place "value" on a person due to their station in life as we humans do.

Both dogs knew that their master loved and cared for them, and they returned it with unconditional loyalty

The actions of the dog is the single bright spot in this story. I think the picture is absolutely appropriate.

It is. I'm laying low, as much as possible. Stay safe, watch the fireworks on tv. I see the left winding up their borg every week. The National Guard and the cities cops will be cracking a lot of heads. There will be deaths before the Nation can expel zer0

If he was White, yes.

What you failed to figure in is that the alleged shooter is a son of obama and one of Holder's people. He has two chances of being prosecuted, slim and none. Now if he had been White......

I am surprised he did not shoot the dog, too.

That's why they called the cops.

I understand that but that picture means a lot more to many of us than just some news story about random violence.

But I do get your point about the actions of the dog... although that’s kind of normal immediately after the death while the dog in the photo certainly displayed a great level of affection and grief, even to the point of moping under the casket.

I just don’t want to trivialize the importance of that photo or that story.

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.

Wha'd'ya know, the "couple" lied. Shocker. Not. How many lies has the FL teenager's family told this far?

I understand that in the moment lots is happening, adrenaline is running and perceptions can be off, but mistaking a leash for a metal pipe is beyond belief.

In the Atlanta Urinal and Constipation's defense, it has to be said that black perps killing anyone really doesn't qualify as news - it's like lions munching on zebras, merely depressing and run-of-the-mill. A non-black perp killing a black person - that's like zebras munching on lions or finding an honest politician, worth a headline or two.

And I don’t think the picture should become the equivalent of a religious icon.
We’ll have to agree to disagree.

There are many degree holders but few who are educated and even fewer who are wise.
