Posted on 08/25/2013 2:23:26 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
The family of 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard spoke only to KHQ Saturday as police continue to search for him in connection with the beating death of 88-year-old Delbert Belton.
Both Kenan's father and uncle asked to remain anonymous to protect the safety of the family. Right now, both stress the need for Kenan to come forward and turn himself in to police.
"He's out there and if anybody knows where he's at or something, they really need to contact the family because we are trying to bring him in," Kenan's Dad said. "We don't want this prolonged, we really need to get this over with and get through with this and find out what's really the situation, of really, what happened in this tragedy."
The family says they want this all to come to an end as quickly as possible.
"We wish we could find him right now, I wish he'd come forward to his family, so we can bring him in because we have love for you Kenan," Kenan's Uncle said. "You're not a bad kid, we know this, this is your uncle talking and I love you man. But, I ask for you to reach out and contact your family because everybody is concerned."
According to the family, they do not think this was a random attack. Instead, they say there is a side to the story we are not hearing.
"They are building it like these kids just went and beat up an old man, which it didn't occur like that, but it is all going to come out," Kenan's Uncle said.
His uncle also thinks something must have happened that has yet to come out, saying his nephew is not a violent person. Other family members say Kenan was a good kid, who played sports and was well liked in school.
Kenan's Dad says the family cannot believe this happened and want him to know they still love him and need him to come forward.
"We just don't know what went wrong, you know, for Kenan to go through that or whatever happened," Kenan's Dad said. "We don't know and we haven't had a chance to talk to him really and that's true, we haven't. I know he's scared to death out there."
Since the attack, his family says they have been getting threats and are worried that if Kenan does not turn himself in, those will continue.
"It's like a domino, everybody is hurt behind this," Kenan's Uncle said. "You're not a bad kid, turn yourself in, come to us, so we can bring you in before you get hurt out there."
Again, the family just wants Kenan to turn himself in and says they are looking for answers along with the rest of the community.
"There's no way I would let my Kenan be out there like that," Kenan's Dad said. "I would take him in [to police] because I understand, I know there a lot of people that are very angry, very angry, and they could take his life."
The family also expressed condolences to Delbert Belton's family and friends, saying this is something that should never happen to anyone.
At this time, 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard is wanted for first-degree murder and first-degree robbery. His dad is asking for Kenan or anyone who knows where he is to call the family, so they can turn him in to police safely.
The other suspect, Demetrius Glenn, is expected to make his first appearance in court as an adult Monday afternoon.
the uncle is full of sh1t. he IS a bad kid. Murder is what BAD people do.
not a “bad kid” my ass.
Hang them all. Families included.
Sorry. Ain’t shedding a tear for this juvenile POS - no matter WHAT the ‘back story.’
Yes. Even IF the ‘back story’ is, ‘Not Enough Hugs.’
We need to bring back the wanted dead or alive posters so these idiots will seek police out for protection.
ever notice when blacks commit violent crimes and murder, their mantra is “we just don’t know what happened, if it’s true” but when it’s a rare white on black incident, that mantra somehow gets tossed and they’ve already convicted the accused?
Man it must be nice living with double standards and no one calling you on it.
Sooooo, the uncle and the father thinks there was a REASON to beat up and KILL the old man......yeah....he’s WHITE...that’s the backstory, dad. Your son is such a good kid.
Um hmm.....other than being a SOB murdering thug, he’s a fine human being.
Try them as adults.
“If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.”
Backstory....the old man looked at him with fear.
When my cousin beat an old man to death with a baseball bat, my family didn’t cry to the news about him being a good boy going though tough times. In fact, there were a couple in the family who would have been more likely to make him disappear.
Backstory could be the thugs were doing the black ‘knockout’ game.
They want him to turn himself in so he isn’t shot being taken in. After all, he’s a teen, maybe he’ll get a reduced penalty (it looks like they’ll try him as an adult, so the juvie bypass won’t be available.) No death penalty for those under 18, even if they do hit the sentencing jackpot of life.
Most likely you're right, but for now I'd still allow for at least the possibility that the uncle is saying what LE is telling him to say in order to bring the little thug in.
It is so cliched that anytime anyone says someone is not a bad kid, it means he is a cold blooded killer.
I’ll second that and the same for Obama, Jackson and Sharpton......they’re the ones that stirred up the horse manure pile and insinuated that this type of demonic behavior is justified.
he went further than he had to in his comments. this is typical drivel that comes out of urban blacks’ mouths. they say this without anyone coaching them.
My family would do the same. And seriously, all it TOOK was a sidelong glance from Grandpa for the most MINOR infraction of the rules and you straightened right UP! Disappointing your elders was a BFD during my childhood, be it your Parents, Grandparents, Aunts or Uncles, even elder Cousins - EVERYONE had free reign to kick your @ss when warranted, LOL!
It’s unfortunate that idiot Democrats and their (un?)intended consequences have destroyed The American Family. Strong men who actually LEAD their children to success in life are increasingly rare...and it only took two generations to accomplish this!
I thank my Lucky Stars each and every day for having strong men in my life; it’s made my life a breeze compared to what the ‘yute’ of today is dealing with.
Thanks once AGAIN, Socialist Democrats! Your lust for all-encompassing POWER has destroyed so many things that a society requires to survive! All by design, Comrades. All. By. Design. *SPIT*
You are exactly right. Right up the road from me in Syracuse NY, a feral juvie played the knockout game and killed the victim. He was sentenced last week to 18 months in juvie boy’s camp.
Shoot on sight.
Yes, the "good kid/honor roll/Rhodes scholar/aspiring rapper" schtick is al de rigueur, but the plea to turn himself in still leads me to believe that there's a good chance the uncle's little press release was prompted in cooperation with law enforcement. Actually, LE would be negligent if they had not sought the cooperation of the family by now. Whether or not the family decided to cooperate is the only real variable.
The kid was probably a follower, and unfortunately his family didn’t notice when he got into some seriously bad company.
But the big problem is that even for decent black people, the whole “kill a defenseless white person, flip a few gang signs, post it on Facebook” mentality has completely taken over in the black world, particularly among adolescents and people in their 20s (unemployed thanks to Obama).
This is mostly because of a combination of mercenary black rappers who are fulfilling white liberal fantasies with their violent, hate-filled product, and Herr President Obama, who is trying to cure his own personal neurosis by trying to be Mr. Head Rapper In Chief.
The family knows where this little bastard is hiding, and I hope they are caught in their lies and charged with harboring a fugitive.
Here it comes ... the Trayvon Martin card. Shorty must have profiled the youths. : o /
“His uncle also thinks something must have happened that has yet to come out, saying his nephew is not a violent person. Other family members say Kenan was a good kid, who played sports and was well liked in school.”
All by the playbook, knew this was going to happen. There’s always “more to the story”.....
It’s a good thing the old man didn’t shoot them in self-defense he’d be on trial by now. Sarc
If this story is missing a piece of the events that need to be told....why is this punk in hiding...
This murderer’s family needs to have their EBT cards recharged or something. What a bunch of lunatics.
Well there you go --
“This one’s for Trayvon!”
“Oh yeah, this one’s for Delbert!” BANG!
He is a good kid and obviously the racist 88 year old cracker is at fault.
This is a Black Rage/Zimmerman Ping List to cover the aftermath of the GZ trial and archive the RELATED incidents. Now also including what seem to be UNrelated incidents. Let me know. And please add "blackrage" to the keywords if appropriate. Click the link for anything you might have missed. Thank you.
Implying ... what?
That there was some element "that has yet to come out" that could justify beating a defenseless elderly man to death? Or standing by, while your companion does it?
If so, what could that element be? An alleged use of the n-word? /s
“We don’t know and we haven’t had a chance to talk to him really and that’s true, we haven’t.
Then why the reinforcing statements?
Exactly. If this punk is anything like the punks I dealt with while working in uniform in NY's prisons, then this POS has been regularly crying to his Mommy or Daddy. These creeps are bad asses when they have an audience to show off to, but get them alone and they're whining babies. Lock one of them up in the box for misbehavior, and they'll get one of their homeys on the unit to call his mother about it. Then the mother calls the prison wanting to know why we're picking on her son. These scumbags are so predictable.
***Both Kenan’s father and uncle asked to remain anonymous to protect the safety of the family.***
18 months, that makes him a super hero, in the kill the cracker community.
And when the fact that they were "polar bear hunting" DOES come out, this toothless ball-less Gibsmedat will vanish from the airwaves.
“They are building it like these kids just went and beat up an old man, which it didn’t occur like that, but it is all going to come out,” Kenan’s Uncle said.
He’s right. They MURDERED him.
Not recharged. REVOKED.
If they haven’t talked with him, how do they know what happened?
If he was not involved why wouldn’t he turn himself in?
I would like to know what the other little darling perp had to say and if he confessed or told on his friend.
Hope resists arrest.........

My old man used to say that if I ever got into trouble with the police he said that he would turn the key on the cell to lock me up! ;-)
Dad doesnt want it prolonged maybe because too much attention is focused on the family; who for some reason I suspect are not sterling citizens themselves. Of course once the boy is caught and the racehustlers come in, Dad and family will be all over TV under the protection of Holder.
This whole lying POS family should be beat to death. Over several days.
