Arizona man admits he stabbed and killed teen over rap music that made him feel 'unsafe'

A white Arizona man accused of murdering a teenager has said the killing was over rap music, the Arizona Republic reports.

“The suspect, 27-year-old Michael Paul Adams, admitted to stabbing the teenager at about 1:42 a.m. Thursday after he heard him playing rap music in his vehicle in the Circle K parking lot, according to police records filed in Superior Court,” the newspaper reported.

Adams had been released from the Arizona State Prison Complex in Yuma two days earlier.

“Adams told police rap music makes him feel ‘unsafe’ because he had been attacked by people who listen to rap music in the past, the records state. He also said people who listen to rap music are a threat to him and the community,” the Republic reported.

“Adams used his pocketknife to stab the teen in the back and slit his throat, the records show,” the newspaper explained. “Adams’ criminal history includes theft, shoplifting, marijuana violation, disorderly conduct, assault with a weapon and aggravated assault of a correctional employee, according to Maricopa County Superior Court records.”

7. News reports are sympathetic to the racist's mental condition

https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/peoria-breaking/2019/07/05/deadly-peoria-stabbing-suspect-michael-paul-adams-says-he-threatened-teens-music/1657727001/

Adams’ criminal history includes theft, shoplifting, marijuana violation, disorderly conduct, assault with a weapon and aggravated assault of a correctional employee, according to Maricopa County Superior Court records.

Jacie Cotterell, Adams’ lawyer, questioned his ability to access mental health services after he was released from prison.

She said that he was “set up for failure."

Adams needed to see a mental health counselor but he was not given a way to access those resources, Cotterell said. “To be specific, he was given resources, he wasn’t given means to get to those resources,” she said.

She said Adams' family did not know where he was after his release. "He was on the street,” she said.

Bill Lamoreaux, a spokesman with the Arizona Department of Corrections, said in a written statement that Adams “was not designated seriously mentally ill.”

11. of course

News media trots that out every fucking time a white racist kills someone about how mentally ill he is and how he wasn't getting the help he needs. The media can shove that narrative up their asses.

10. I've rethought my stance on the death penalty for racists who kill others

They should be fucking fried in goddamn electric chairs until they glow in the dark as far as I'm concerned.
