Arizona Justice Does it Right!

Cordell Jude was arrested on unrelated charges in the shooting of Daniel Adkins on July 14, 2012. This arrest revealed that he was not the most upright citizen in the first place, but the point of this mention is that it was not known until after the arrest--though some people tried to post Cordell's ties to illegal activity.

His name, until he was charged with the act of violence he committed against Daniel Adkins, remained a mystery. On Friday, July 28, 2012, he was indicted on one count of second-degree murder in the death of Daniel Adkins, and his arraignment was scheduled for August 9, 2012.

Knowledge of the arrest and arraignment is not a celebration because someone went to jail, but an example of how the justice system is supposed to work. Jude committed a crime, but was not judged before his trial and blasted through the media. This situation in Arizona, the crime, the trial and the justice dispensed is how the process of the justice system works at its best. This was a far cry from the debauchery with the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin circus in Florida. Shame on Florida.


Florida Failed Trayvon and Zimmerman

Shame on you Florida for the way you handled the Zimmerman fiasco. Shame on you for allowing George Zimmerman's name to get out to the press. Shame on you for not protecting his identity so that he could have fair and equal protection under the law as all should in America.

It is the expressed purpose of the State to protect the civil liberties of its citizens. Zimmerman was denied that. He should file a civil suit against everyone, including the Black Panthers!

Arizona is a place where citizens like George Zimmerman would receive due process without the terroristic threats from organizations such as the Black Panthers--vigilante justice.

Daniel Adkins' murderer is now charged with the crime he committed in shooting Daniel outside of the Taco Bell on Baseline and 51 Avenue where my family patronized.

Why does it matter to me? I have faith in my community and the justice system in Arizona not to make the issue about race. I have trust that my state will hold to the facts and dispense justice without allowing the civil rights of the citizens to be violated.

Do it for Fun!

In Your View, Did Florida Handle Zimmerman Case as Well As Cordell's?

Kudos, Arizona Justice

Praise God for the way Arizona has handled this situation with the shooting of Daniel Adkins. Praise Arizona for protecting Cordell from the fate of George Zimmerman. Praise the Adkins family for not going public and trying to prevail upon the sympathy of the public to crucify Cordell Jude as the family of Trayvon Martin did.

I could be wrong in assuming the Martin family intended for Zimmerman to suffer as he did before his trial and I own that.

The Adkins family did it the proper way. The Adkins Family told the public not to cry racism. The Adkins family wanted justice based on the crime that was committed and did not want to involve race relations as they could have.

Hispanics are not treated respectfully in Arizona in my opinion. It is worse for a person of known Hispanic origin here than not. Not only do these people have the dishonor of their heritage disparaged--especially those of Mexican heritage--but the added insult of a stereotype of violence and gangster related activities that I am still trying to push aside as a non-Hispanic person.

I am a product of the indoctrination of society against Hispanics. Thankfully, God put me in a place that forces me to associate with people of Hispanic heritage to help open my eyes to the evils of culture discrimination.

Good families like the Adkins are a shining example of how Americans should want to be when dealing with the grief of such a terrible situation. Now the Adkins can rest assured that the death of Daniel Adkins, Jr. will not go unpunished.

Daniel can rest in peace. As a member of the same community as the Adkins family--probably having shopped at the same stores and met unaware--you have my support and prayers.

Now it is time to let the matter rest. Now is the time to have the proper grieving. Now we can truly say goodbye to a community member whom we came to know because his life ended, Daniel.

Goodbye, Daniel. Your life is remembered, and your death is mourned.
