Adkins lived with his mother and father. He was 29, but his family says he was mentally disabled and has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old. He didn't drive, and walked wherever he went.
"He needs to be behind bars. I'll never see my brother again," says Adkins' sister Marina Reyes. "If he felt that my brother was threatening him, he could have easily just rolled up the window and called the cops." She continued, "So he's saying self defense, then where's the weapon? Where's the pipe? They didn't find anything on my brother."
My questions are: (1) Where are the New Black Panther Party, the Congressional Black Caucus, Spike Lee, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton on this one? Is not Adkins dead? Was he not shot? (2) Where is the MSM on this one? Where is NBC? (3) Does Adkins' mental capacity enter into this situation? Why have Jackson and Sharpton not questioned what angry words a mentally disabled Hispanic could say?
Can I conclude that since the crime committed was "black-on-white Hispanic" rather than "white Hispanic-on-black," the New Black Panther Party, the Congressional Black Caucus, Spike Lee, Jackson, Sharpton, MSM, and NBC will not find this interesting and ignore it? Please cite sources of evidence of New Black Panther Party, the Congressional Black Caucus, Spike Lee, Jackson, Sharpton, MSM, or NBC interest.
In both cases, the best course would be to show patience, to carefully examine ALL evidence available. Is that what happened in Sanford, FL? Noo. The MSM has again embarrassed itself, and the black activist leadership, in and out of government, has demagogued the Martin case while ignoring the Adkins case, alienated the country, and set back racial relations for some time. And Obama weighed in on the Martin case in an utterly incoherent fashion. Would Obama's other son look like Adkins?
But that's just my opinion.
