He was trying to get his life back on track. He was going to church.
He did not do nothing and was trying to turn his life around, going to church.
He was only a child.
A college football player who expected to earn a starting job this upcoming season was shot and killed by a rookie police officer during a struggle at a Dallas-area car dealership after midnight Friday.
Christian Taylor, a 19-year-old sophomore defensive back at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Tex., allegedly drove an SUV through the showroom glass doors at Classic Buick GMC in Arlington, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Arlington Police responded to a reported burglary in progress at 1 a.m. and found Taylor inside. The unarmed black teen was shot after a scuffle by 49-year-old Officer Brad Miller, who graduated from the academy in March and had been with the department since September 2014, according to Arlington Police.
Taylor, who died at the scene, was supposed to report to school on Sunday, his high school coach told the Morning News.
“He told me that he thought he’d have an opportunity to start,” Mansfield Summit High School Football Coach Travis Pride said. “He was ready to get back. He loved the coaches, loved the program. All signs were pointed to go, for him to go get things done.”
Sounds to me like he was a good boy, trying to get his life on track. He was going to church. He did not do nothing.
Friends and family described Taylor as a fun-loving kid with a bright future and cast doubt on any criminal wrongdoing.
“I think something is going on that somebody is lying about,” Clyde Fuller, Taylor’s great uncle, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“They say he’s burglarizing the place by running up in there?” Fuller continued. “Nuh-uh. Something doesn’t sound right.”
Nuh-uh is right. This looks to me like yet another clear-cut case of a racist cop hunting down an innocent Black child and murdering him for the color of his skin.
What is sickening is that the media is trying to blame the victim.
Taylor was sentenced in December to six months deferred adjudication for possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, court records show.
So now it’s his fault that he was robbing a car dealership, simply because he was a drug-user?
That is how the White-supremacist media will do you.
Every time they do you like that.
