A white colored Texas officer seriously filmed an exposed, chocolate 19-year-old school runner believed of pushing a automotive in the window(s) of a new Dallas-area 4wd fix facility, origins said on Saturday.
The death of 19-year-old Christian Taylor came days before the anniversary of the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and is the latest incidence of black men being killed by police. Johnson says he’s troubled by some of the actions Miller took while responding to a reported burglary at a auto dealership early Friday morning. Miller’s been pushed to procedure managing abandon like the analysis is on-going.
7, Angelo State University sophomore football player, Christian Taylor was captured by surveillance cameras outside Classic Buick GMC in Arlington, stumbling and appearing erratic at approximately 1:20 a.m. Taylor can be seen wearing loosely-fitted shorts and T-shirt with socks and athletic shoes as he shakily climbed, unarmed, over the security rail and proceeded to damage cars on the lot outside the dealership. Miller could also face criminal charges.
Texas police have released audio of a 911 call made by the company manning the exterior cameras at a vehicle dealership where a police officer killed an unarmed Texas college football player.
Miller has no disciplinary record and had not fired his gun in the line of duty before Friday, Rodriguez said.
Arlington Municipal Patrolman’s Association, the police union, questions the firing in a statement shared with local media which stated, “Arlington Police Officers responded to a call involving felonious and destructive behavior by the suspect in question”. But he said he is intent on Miller’s arrest.
TAYLOR GRADUATED last year from Mansfield Summit High School in Arlington and was listed on Angelo State’s roster as a 5-foot-9, 180-pound freshman defensive back. While he said he had “serious concerns” about Miller’s use of deadly force, Johnson said it would be up to a grand jury to decide whether Miller’s actions were criminal.
The association says it supports Miller’s “right to be judge fairly and completely on facts instead of a snapshot developed in only days”.
The police chief in the Dallas suburb of Arlington has fired an officer who fatally shot an unarmed Texas college football player.
Fired rookie police officer Brad Miller “deeply regrets” fatally shooting 19-year-old burglary suspect Christian Taylor, but felt he was in a “life-threatening” situation, Miller’s pastor said Thursday. Police said Miller can not appeal his firing because he was a probationary employee. At least two bullets struck Taylor, killing him, according to the chief, who said the interaction early Friday morning lasted only seconds.
Police have said that when officers arrived, Taylor was roaming inside the showroom.
The case is now in the hands of the investigators and the grand jury who will hear and deliver a decision on the evidence.
“Right now I just feel sorry for my family and his family and for the whole nation”, Taylor told the newspaper.
Snider says Johnson used “20/20 hindsight to protect his job and appease anti-police activists”. He joined the Arlington department recently and had been in field training since graduating from the police academy in March. “I just hope it makes a change because this is happening too much”. Taylor then drove his own Jeep through the railing and into the dealer’s showroom.
