Unfortunately no one knows what possessed young Christian Taylor to go onto that car lot and do whatever he did. But even police officials, in this case, are even willing to admit that there was no reason for this young man to die. So now because we have allowed a continuous barrage of media imagery that portrays Black & Brown People as Violent and Criminal, we are now looked as animals that somehow need to be put down. And we see it happening again & again. Think about it. Dylann Roof got a bullet-proof vest and Burger King. James Eagan Holmes killed 12 people, but he was allowed to live. No officer saw fit to shoot him at the scene of his crime-and a jury felt that the death penalty would be too much. But in the same week that Christian Taylor was EXECUTED, Joseph M. Parker (click on the name for the story) assaulted seven officers in Massachusetts-but no one ever even thought about shooting him.
As for Christian Taylor, his brother says that he aspired to "change the world and be the next Martin Luther King." Now someone else will have to take his place. R.I.P.
