Where’s the outrage?
‘Justice for Dillon Taylor’ sought for white Utah man fatally shot by black officer
By Jessica Chasmar – The Washington Times – Wednesday, September 3, 2014
Support on social media and the Salt Lake City area is swelling for an 20-year-old white man who was shot and killed by police last month.
Family and friends of Dillon Taylor say they will continue to hold protests outside state and federal government offices until the authorities answer questions about the shooting, The New York Times reported.
Some demonstrators are linking Taylor’s death to the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen who was fatally shot last month by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, leading to racially charged unrest between residents and police.
Taylor, who is white, was reportedly unarmed when he was shot two times near a 7-Eleven on Aug. 11 after a confrontation with police officers.
The Salt Lake City police chief addressed criticism and the militarization of police in the wake of Taylor’s death.
