When a Non-White Cop Killed an Innocent White Man in Utah, the Press Was Silent

It has been reported that cops kill about 500 innocent Americans per year. Yet most of those stories stay buried or at best, see limited life in local media or the blogosphere. Only the select, as in selected by the media, stories become as big as the Michael Brown story. Certain stories simply transcend the perceived boredom of news headlines and become a part of pop culture.

Does the media intentionally stir up racial hatred? Is it part of their agenda?

Is it because blacks in Ferguson rioted and looted while whites in Salt Lake City have remained calm?

America needs to find answers, because this racial divide is moronic. We are all "Americans," and not "African-Americans," or "Asian-Americans," or "Redneck-Americans," or anything else. We are Americans first, and we need to remember that. It is OK to love and celebrate your heritage. It is not OK to let it consume who you are and carry hatred that will explode at a moment's notice.

Ever heard of a kid named Dillon Taylor?

He was a white kid, 20 years old, who was killed by a black cop on August 11. This happened two days after Michael Brown was killed.

Dillon Taylor seems to be a young man who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was leaving a 7-11 convenience store. Officers were in the area because there was a report of a man with a gun.

Taylor had headphones in and did not hear the police when they asked him to lay down on the ground.

Taylor, unfortunately, reached into his pocket, for a cell phone, and that was the last thing he ever did. He had no gun. He did not rob any stores. He did not assault a police officer.

His "crime" was that he did not think, and that non-crime cost him his life.

Officers were obviously in a heightened state of alert, and a white kid with headphones happened to be killed by a cop who was referred to as "not white."

Do you think that was because of his race?

I don't think it was, and that's my personal opinion, but…

Where are the riots in Salt Lake City?

Surely a lot of whites have to think that this was racially motivated. Right?

Wrong. I think most people (black and white) understand that it was probably not racially motivated. The frustration that falls over much of "white America" is that we are all thrown into one big pile of racists and if a white on black crime happens, the worst always gets assumed by a minority of people and is then pushed by the media, continually growing exponentially until out of control. That is when the real problems begin to happen.

That is also exactly where we are with the situation in Ferguson.

I live in a country where I am labeled a racist for not liking Obama's policies. If I don't like Obamacare, I am a racist and even a white man will call me that, so long as he is a Democrat.

When are people going to wake up and see that "the powers that be," which include both media and government, want us to stay divided? They really don't want me and a black man in Murrieta, California to agree on anything. That would eat away at the power that they only keep when we remain divided. We give them that power by our senseless bickering.

I think most of us could understand how the police might have felt that Dillon Taylor was reaching for a gun. I, for one, don't think this had anything to do with race. I think it was about a cop who felt his life was in danger. So why is it so hard to believe that Darren Wilson could have thought the same thing?

Why is it that, often times, when a white man, or any man who is not black in the case of George Zimmerman, kills a black man, it becomes a media circus?

We will get nowhere by avoiding the tough questions in the name of "political correctness."

People need to stop thinking that the black man or the white man is their enemy and look at the real enemy that resides throughout the halls of capitol buildings all over this nation and in newsrooms in virtually every city.

America needs to do some soul searching and come together in spite of those who want us divided. A lot of us are waking up and that is what "the powers that be" fear. So what happens when they fear that we will come together?

They stir up more chaos just as they are doing in Ferguson and just as they did with Trayvon Martin.

This will continue until Americans open their eyes and start to see the real enemy.

    Its funny how Mr Garrison purposely leaves out the fact Dillon Taylor at 20 was already a career criminal.Dillon had a warrant out for robbery when he was shot .Dillon on his Facebook page talked about ""How I wasn't going to be taken in. I finely done hit rock bottom." Also Mr Garrison purposely leaves out when Off Cruz told Taylor show me your hands,Taylor's response "Nah fool" .Taylor lunged . A criminal got what he deserved.

  • Peleus

    If a black kills black or if a black kills a white [according to AG] that is not an issue and does not advance the left agenda. However if a white kills a black a liberal agenda can be pushed

  • Thomas Hillgardner

    Dean Garrison foolishly assumes that the shooting of Dillon Taylor was justified because the cop might have felt that he was reaching for a gun and shooting him was a matter of officer safety. THAT is the whole problem with the training given to modern cops. They place officer safety above their duty to protect and serve the community. Police no longer wait to see the gun and fire whenever someone moves. This is an unrealistic standard that places the members of teh community at risk in the name of officer safety. It is at the heart of the problem with both shootings. Stop defending the police when the police departments are to blame.

    'Political Correctness' is nothing more than Cultural Marxism. Another avenue that the 'Left' is taking to further their attempt to change/coerce Americans into giving up their rights and becoming mindless drones, in a Socialist system.
    'Those who would give up any essential rights, for any temporary security deserve neither liberty nor security.' Benjamin Franklin
    As for so called 'economic equality', the only economic equality in a socialist system, is universal Poverty. Just ask the Russians, who spent almost a century suffering under a socialist system of government (which was funded originally and for decades, by certain American financial interests). They have been imploring America to not go down that slippery slope.


    ok, how do you know the cop is black. . also i did some reading into dillon taylors past and he has a criminal record, would you call him a thug that deserved it like so many are doing mike brown ? and youre saying that this community is not up in arms about it, are you really comparing an epidemic of cops killing blacks to this needle in a haystack occurrence of a (supposedly) black cop killing a white man.. And then you said taylor "did not rob any stores or assault an officer" making references to mike brown, but i challenge you to provide proof of any of this.. Neither the clerk nor the store owner called police, it was a customer, without audio you dont know what was going on .. and about him assaulting the cop, first it was a fractured eye bone, then he was beaten unconscious, then its just a "swollen face".. which one is it

    • Mathematical certainty

      Such a typical response from a black racist with no factual evidence to support the garbage that you spew. Just make it up as you go along which is the technique that all racists use. You and your ilk have found Wilson guilty of murder the same day of the Brown shooting, because the cop was white and that is how you Neanderthals think. Blacks are so hypocritical when it is White on Black crime. You torch and destroy your own businesses in your own communities, that's smart. While black thugs in hundreds of cities are playing the "Knock Out and Polar Bear Games" where the black savages sneak up on Whitey and sucker punch him/her to the ground. Only if Whitey is knocked unconscious or killed are points received. Whitey includes: the elderly, men, women, and children, because they are the easiest targets for the black punk cowards.
      Why don't you go to Chicago and protest the slaughter of blacks by blacks committed on a daily basis. You won't go because you are a coward and it is not newsworthy. But cases like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown stir your racist fluids. While the case of Dillon Taylor is not newsworthy and besides he is just another dead white boy, right!

    • Marilynne Cathy Ousley

      Why the hell are you taking it out on us that the race baiting media is not publishing black on white crime? Whose fault is that? Stop whining and write to your Congressman. And PS, Sharpton doesn't speak for me or anyone else I know. I suggest you get your own spokespersons. If you all don't feel the need to protest such incidents, that's YOUR concern, not ours.

  • Mindy Robinson

    I don't blame this solely on the racist gun runner , holder, nor the thug in chief. I blame it on those who use it so that they can attempt to oppress, feel free to murder, pillage, rape and hate. I am disgusted by those in ferguson who incited this. I am disgusted by thier eager and joyful desire to destroy all that they can. There is only one reason people so willingly accept lawlessness, they like it that way. Those who protested peacefully or violently, are pathetic and cowards, not to be trusted. They are intent on having what they want , be it a free pack of cigars, murdering a cop, raping their neighbors daughter. There is only one way to stop this and it won't be by holding thier hand.

  • Mark Anthony

    Excellent commentary. On point.

    Where is Sharpton,what about Obama s hound dog from D.O.J where are the war wagons, this country should take A look around and start to put the real criminals in prison and start with people who defile our CONSTITUTION with a phone and a PEN ,what a joke GOD BLESS AMERICA,GOD SAVE AMERICA

  • HK

    Dean Garrison is not a racist b/c he doesn't like Obamacare. He's a racist because he believes and spreads the lies such as the that ridiculous, fact-free claim that Obama is not an American-born American citizen.

    This is basic racism and jingoism. There are a lot of real problems in the world, but Garrison would rather spread lies than address real issues. He's a useful idiot for big government and large corporations that want to pit Americans against Americans while stealing our money (via monetary debasement and inflation) and our rights (via the Patriot Act and militarized police forces.)

  • Rapier Half-Witt

    This particular case had nothing to do with race, I would bet.

    But what this case does point to is the violence of police on the general public.

    There is a seemingly pervasive occurrence of cop-on-citizen violence that appears to be increasing with very alarming frequency. The fact that nearly all police departments across the country refuse to keep statistics of police on citizen violence speaks volumes.

    9 years ago the Supreme Court ruled that police are under no Constitutional responsibility to protect the lives of private citizens.


    The English historian, Lord John Acton once said that “All power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Cops have been granted the power of life and death with no personal responsibility. They can and do kill anyone (or any dog) they want to without fear of consequences, responsibility or retribution. "Protect & Serve" is nothing more than a dangerous marketing slogan.

    The DOD is now arming local police with weapons of war straight out of Iraq; MRAPS, body armor, fully automatic weapons. SWAT is being typically utilized to arrest people for not paying student loans or arresting people for their car inspection being out of date.

    There was a story out of Florida where some moron was pulled over for not wearing his seat belt. The idiot ran from his car. The cops literally ran him over with their cruiser and parked the car on top of the unarmed man, killing him. Or the case of the 90 year old invalid grandfather that was murdered in his lazy boy after the cops arrested his drug dealing grandson in the front yard. Or the thousands of dogs and cats that are shot to death as a standard operating procedure any time that cops arrive at any scene. Or the cops that now like to perform cavity searches on women on the side of the road, in full view of the entire world, for busted tail lights.

    If its not already a war on the private citizens, please tell me...

    What is it?

    • Reba - I'm Ready, Are You?

      Rapier, I don’t totally disagree with you, but I look at it another way. The biggest issue is, wanting someone charged with murder before the Facts and Truth are known. They want one Police Officer to pay for all the current and previous issues and the shooting of Michael Brown. The fact that this administration sent Sharpton in is another issue. The fact that the president and Holder both stood there and accused the Police Officer of being guilty, before the Facts and Truth are known.
      The looting and burning down of businesses is not about race. These are individuals that came from other towns close by and out-of-state. That was their purpose, to loot. The problem I have, is why they did not stop them? Who told them to let them have at it and watch the Protestors instead? Then look at the militarized of our Police Forces and who supported it? This administration supported it and then they stood up and said we need to review what they are receiving and they should not be acting that way toward Black People. What is wrong with this picture? What it says to me is that this administration built up the Police Forces while they decimated “Our Military”. Now they are decimating the Police Forces, because they have their Army built and ready.
      Think about it!

    • Rapier Half-Witt

      I think, in the case of Ferguson, that you make a completely reasonable point. But I was speaking of the whole mental perspective of local law enforcement across the country.
      I believe that that mental perspective, in the case of Dillon Taylor, was the driving force of his death by police.

    • Reba - I'm Ready, Are You?

      Yes, they are militarized a little too much. I understand the need to have what you need for Drug Busts and serious situations, but not all are needed everywhere. I was trying to remember everyone that was there is Ferguson. I believe it was a little overkill for the people that were having peaceful demonstrations, instead of it being zeroed in on the looters. I’m not going to try and second guess them, because I was not there. Yes, I agree it does happen and probably more than it needs to. As I said Truth and Facts and if an Officer does wrong, then he will have to answer just like you or me.


    I hope this guys family sues their tails off! But the big difference??? He did not do anything wrong. How many times did he get shot? We don't know! We do know that he did not commit at least 7 Felonies prior to getting shot like poor poor wittle Michael did! But the "Zulu" mob, who was just looking for an excuse to loot and pillage, jumped right into action!

  • quincyman

    This article is so on point and so correct..... The media and race baiters promote the violence and hate. When a black cop kills a white kid there is no hate. Because the white people understand how it can happen and there are no nationally known White Race baiters to stir the pot of hate. So move on media there's nothing to see here.

    Ferguson was spured on by the media and outside forces. These outside political forces made sure the situation was kept alive and growing for their own political gain. People lost sight of what really happened. A young man robbed a store, pushed the owner around, came out on the streets feeling superior and powerful. Met up with a police officer who tried questioning him, instead of answering he chose to let his feelings of power overcome him. He attacked the officer inside the patrol car, beating him about the head. He turned to leave but decided to return and give the officer more beating. The officer then shot him three times in arm and leg not stopping him, then fired twice more in the head which killed the young black man. All choices made by the young man. Leaving a town to holler Racism. That's it. Sad but true.

      Ms. Ousley I wrote that 20 days ago, did it take you that long to think of something to say? I can see where you have missed the whole concept of the truth when it comes at you so fast since it seems to take you so long to process an idea. You are the perfect person Obama is looking for as a voter. He lies, you agree, vote, then by the time you figure out what he really said it's to late. WE are ALL screwed and YOU are wondering what happened. You are exactly what he is looking for. By the way did you get your free phone, Obama bucks, or maybe you waited for a big screen on that night.

  • boardmanric

    When a man decides to be a police officer, when he decides to join a force who's primary function is to protect and serve doesn't he come with the attitude that he might have to lose his life in the line of duty and if he really believes this doesn't he have to face the fact that he might have to pay that price rather than kill an innocent citizen? If he is so afraid of losing his life that he will react out of irrational fear and take the life of an innocent civilian he is acting out of cowardice and has no business being in uniform. Since when does a police officer's life have a higher value than the citizens he has sworn to protect?

    On a related topic I read over and over about tactical units at the local level being out of control but I never read about the city council meeting or the board of commissioners meeting being packed with irate citizens demanding the police chief's resignation or the recall campaigns removing the members who are complicit in this militarization of our local police departments. As long as the citizenry remains silent and compliant this will continue until there is no liberty left which we will be willing to fight for.
