I was just checking up on another shooting that occurred back on April 3, 2012. If you’re not aware of the Daniel Adkins case I’ll give you a bit of info.
29 year old Daniel Adkins, a Hispanic, was walking his dog past a drive thru when he was almost hit by a 22 year old Black man Cordell Lamar Jude, driving out of the drive thru. Adkins, who is reportedly mentally retarded, started yelling at the driver. Jude pulled out his gun, murdered Adkins, claimed self defense and the months went by without an arrest. I have just learned that on July 27 Jude was finally indicted for murder.
I talked a bit about this case on April 10 and my main interest then was to look at the reporting. One thing was the severe lack of reporting. The second thing was the clear lack of mentioning the race of the murderer.
One thing the father of Jude said will always stay with me;
“The shooter’s father worries that his son will be seen as another George Zimmerman.”This is not like that case,” the father said. “This guy was attacking my son.”
Adkins never even hit the car much-less Jude himself.
