    Utah protesters demand justice for Dillon Taylor, others killed by police

    Dillon Taylor, the 20-year-old man who was shot dead by Salt Lake City police outside a 7-Eleven last Monday. Police were responding to a report of a man with a gun, but Taylor’s supporters say he was unarmed.

    "It didn’t make sense to me when I first heard everything, and they tried to say he had a gun," said Taylor’s friend Aaron Swanenberg, who came to the protest straight from Taylor’s funeral. "I knew Dillon. He never packed a gun."
    At the time of Taylor’s shooting, court documents show he had a $25,000 bench warrant for a probation violation in connection with felony robbery and obstructing justice convictions. But Marissa Martinez, whose sister used to date Taylor, said Taylor had turned over a new leaf.
    "He was trying to do better for himself. And this is what happens to him?" Martinez said. "It was really heartbreaking."
    The South Salt Lake police department is investigating the shooting but has not said whether a weapon was found or why Taylor was deemed threatening enough for police to fire at least twice.

    So, I watched, no breaking banners, no MSNBC endless calls for 'justice', Al Sharpton will not appear, and Obama schedules another round of Golf...

    But what is so different about this case? Oh that's right, it's a white suspect, and the shooter was a black cop.

    FWIW, I actually think that this case is worse than the Brown case. Taylor never charged the cops, and wasn't trying to get their weapons, or anything like that.

    So, let us see just how fast in this thread the positions magically switch sides...This should be fun...

    More from a different site:

    With the outrage over Michael Brown’s shooting death at the hands of police gobbling up the headlines, rioters and activists alike may have missed the story of Dillon Taylor. The 20-year old unarmed man was shot to death by police in Utah just days after Brown met a comparable fate in Ferguson, MO. The similarity of the two shootings is eerie, yet there are no riots, Sharptons, or Justice Department investigations in Utah. Oh, did I mention that Taylor was white?
    It may come as a shock to all of the leftist pundits and civil rights activists calling for justice in Missouri that white guys actually get shot by the police too, even unarmed ones. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that on August 11 Dillon Taylor was exiting a Salt Lake City 7-11 when police, responding to a man with a gun call, shot him to death. No weapon was recovered from the scene.

    In another story from New York:

    A 36-year-old woman walking through Central Park was shot in the back of the head with a pellet gun in an apparent hate crime, police said Saturday.

    The shaken victim told the Daily News she was leaving the park at W. 60th St. and West Drive about 12:05 a.m. Monday when she strolled past a group of black youths.


    The two men and three women — all in their late teens or early 20s — said nothing as they passed by. But moments later, the woman felt a “horrible pain” in the back of her head.


    “My hand went up to my head, and there was blood gushing everywhere,” said the woman, who asked to be identified only as Hanna.


    “I turned around, and I said, ‘What are you doing? Why are you doing this to me? What's wrong with you people?’”


    One of the women immediately unleashed a barrage of racial epithets.


    “F---- you, you f------ white b----,” the woman hissed, Hanna recalled.


    Then one of the men popped his head out from behind a tree and joined in the racially fueled verbal attack.


    “All white people suck,” the man hollered. “F--- white people.”


    The group fled, leaving Hanna bloodied and in tears.

    How come the good Reverend Al didn't show up in Utah moaning about police injustices and all of that?

    That depends on how you define the word "racism." In the common, colloquial misusage, you are correct. In all technicality, what you are referring to is prejudice. Under the correct definition, one person cannot be "racist."

    If you use the technical definition that requires things like power structure and usually government backing, it is basically impossible because black people are not the power structure.

    As far as the race baiting goes, you can either get your own race baiting whites to go do that, or you can bitch and moan about Rev. Al. I know which you'll choose to do, because only one of them lets you be the victim.

    Oh please. Only a handful of wackos say black people can't be racist. I don't judge you by what the Westbrook baptist church people say.

    Might I remind you of these two men today?

    But anyway, nice to see that your usual response is to attack the poster rather than let your thoughts on the subject stand to be debated.

    You don't? Good to know, I'll keep that in mind.

    Imma go to Hell for this:

    "He got confused, he went to pull up his pants to get on the ground, and they shot him," Jerrail Taylor said.

    Stupidest, ugliest trend in "fashion" or "culture" I've ever seen.

    Thought you were the dude that wasn't going to be deciding what happened till investigations, hearings or trials were over. Suddenly you 'know' that Brown charged the cop and tried to take his weapon. Despite the fact that there's testimony to the contrary as well.

    He has articulated that his complaint is white cops shooting unarmed black men, that's why. You're the one that's suppose to be showing up in Utah. This Utah case is equally tragic, and eventually something is going to be done about cops shooting unarmed men.

    Re: Utah protesters demand justice for Dillon Taylor, others killed by police

    There are distinct differences beyond race. With Wilson there is not yet any clear indication that he actually committed a crime (it is suggested the video shows him paying for the cigarillos), but this guy obviously did commit a crime and was in violation of the terms of his clemency. Another key difference is they were apparently responding to a complaint of someone waving around a gun and when they confronted Taylor his brother says he "got confused, he went to pull up his pants to get on the ground, and they shot him." Not hard to imagine them thinking he was the person waving a gun and was reaching for the gun so they shot first. If he really was unarmed then this is a tragic case of a police shooting where the officer or officers misjudged an action and fired.
