When a Black 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.

    It's going to be fun when this country has enough. I had fun in the war zone overseas. Maybe that's my ptsd talking. The country is being divided by race and gender more and more ever day. When it explodes, I at least have experience in a combat zone.

    Every White country is being turned into Zimbabwe. That's the goal. Silence is necessary. This is why Whites are the only race in America to have no representation, no churches, no schools, and no groups. Whites are the only race to create Free Speech. Whites are the only race that's denied Free Speech.

    When I say this Whites will scream "racism." Every time you scream "racism" or some dumb sh!t you're silencing yourself. You're punching yourself in the face.

    http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58287556-78/taylor-lake-police-salt.html.csp Nobody cares about this "white kid" because he was a criminal with felonies and a warrent, Mike brown did not have any felonies. This article leaves it out, which doesn't really matter because the people who read this bullshit and believe it are retarded.

    Also it seems that Dillon Taylor was drunk and his Facebook entries from the day before were showing crazy thoughts

    Worth noting that body cam footage has been released of the victim clearly disobeying the police, reaching into his waistband, refusing to show his hands.

    I am a dark skinned latina nurse that is a democrat, likes the healthcare law and likes our president. And i agree with u about race in this country. No one ever tries to think about what police officers go through everyday. And i dont believe that just cause the kid went to college made him a good kid. There are thieves, rapists, and murderers that go to college. Its the media! And no one really investigates the news stories. They just read twitter feeds. I am a science gal. And i always read the forensic evidence. But the media doesn't; just like no one wants to understand how their body works so that they dont end up with diabetes or understand global warming cause they dont want to admit that we are not honoring the planet God gave us. If all we do is read our twitter feed, we dont even honor the brains God gave us!

    500 Innocent Americans a year - where in the heck did you come up with number? Do you have any sources? What makes you thing that the 500 did not pose a threat of serious injury to the officer or another or a deadly threat to the officer or another citizen?

    While the example above is a tragic mistake it is highly unusual. Nearly 1 million full time and reserve police officers have well over a billion encounters with citizens in the US each year - and only 500 end in a fatal use of force.

    The FBI's 2013 preliminary report on officers feloniously killed or assaulted in the line of duty, documents 49,851 police officer feloniously assaulted and that's just in calendar year 2013. Officers are able to defend themselves as well as the good and decent people they protect the vast majority of the time. 99.7% of the time in 2013 officers were able to defend themselves and other without deadly force. Deadly force is only used in 0.3% (using your 500 number above) of these felony encounters.

    Because black men are killed by white officers far more than whites! Now the whites can FINALLY feel what we've been feeling since you guys have come in and tortured us. I hate white people and their white supremacy and their white privelege. You guys are no better than the rest!
