Teen Stabbed To Death For Listening To Rap Music
17-year-old Elijah Al-Amin was allegedly stabbed several times in the back with Michael Paul Adams’ pocket knife before having his throat slit inside a Peoria, Arizona Circle K gas station. This isn't the first time a black teen has been killed for listening to music.
According to Fox 10
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 suspect said he felt threatened by the music — not the teen himself — so he needed to be “proactive rather than reactive,” police records said.
This is a tragic death and prayers to the family of everyone involved in this. The news clip that I saw the news was calling the man mentally disabled. The only mental disability that this man is suffering from is white supremacy. I'm sure he will say he feared for his life and try to get off with killing this child with immunity.
Truly sick, I don't know why anyone feels they have the right to take anyones life. The fact that he likely will get away with murder is troubling. Anyone who would like to leave a message on the Hot 991 app letting us know how rap music has had a positive impact on your life send it now.
