Akiel Denkins Shot By Officer In Self Defense, Per Wake DA

This is an interesting situation. When Akiel Denkins was shot and killed by a Raleigh police officer, it was immediately assumed that this was raaaaacism, and the local media, and even some national media, went right along, publishing 2nd hand hearsay claiming that he was shot in the back while running away. Because he was such a little darling, what with his drug dealing, beating women, etc. The Narrative quickly broke down, and the story disappeared. But, now it’s back with some more info to counteract the Narrative

(WTVD11) Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman has concluded that Raleigh Police Senior Officer D.C. Twiddy shot Akiel Denkins in self-defense and will not face any charges.

In a release issued on Wednesday, the DA’s office concluded that Officer Twiddy shot 24-year-old Denkins on Feb. 29 “as a matter of last resort and only because he reasonably believed his own life was in danger.”

The release went on to say that Denkins was armed and grabbed Officer Twiddy’s gun during a struggle.

The DA’s findings back up Raleigh Police’s report and a preliminary autopsy report which both stated that Denkins was shot during a struggle after a foot chase in the downtown area.

The gun found at the scene had Denkins’ DNA on it, as did Officer Twiddy’s service weapon, highlighting that Denkins tried to grab it.

Of course, many are not accepting this, and plan on trying other legal avenues. His mother stated

“Now it’s my time to fight,” she said. “And that’s what I am going to do. “I have to fight for justice for my son that’s what I am going to do.”

Your son, sorry to tell you, was a criminal, a bad guy. Justice would have been getting him to stop dealing drugs and committing felonies.

Now I’m just waiting for all the local news media to say “whoops, perhaps we shouldn’t have run with the racism aspect from the get go based on hearsay.”

    Unfortunately, Mr Teach, you didn’t follow through. When you said to Mr Denkins mother, Rolanda Byrd, “Your son, sorry to tell you, was a criminal, a bad guy,” you neglected to say that he was a criminal and a bad guy because she failed as a mother!

    Had she reared him right, he wouldn’t have had a criminal record, wouldn’t have been a drug dealer, wouldn’t have been in a street gang, and would probably never had encountered the police. Akiel Denkins is stone cold graveyard dead today because Rolanda Byrd was a lousy mother.

    Dana, that begs the question “who and where is his father?”

    Well, they’re Negroes so what does a conservative expect?

    Would you agree that the mothers of the Alan Greenspan, Robert Rubin and the CEOs and other executives of Wall Street were “failed mothers”?

    And where would anyone get the notion that a white cop in the Old Confederacy might shoot a young Black man without cause?
