Fault Lines Links: Christian Taylor Never Touched Brad Miller

Aug. 12, 2015 (Mimesis Law) — Good morning. Here’s what we are watching.

  • A newly released radio recording in the Christian Taylor shooting shows that 2 minutes and 11 seconds elapsed between officers first making contact and shots fired. Brad Miller, the officer involved in the shooting of Christian Taylor, has been terminated for “exercising poor judgment.” It has also come to light that contrary to initial reports, Taylor never had any physical contact with Miller.
  • Zachary Hammond’s family is seeking a federal probe into the teenager’s death at the hands of a Seneca, SC police officer.
  • Paul Heenan’s family reached a $2.3 million settlement with the City of Madison, Wisconsin. The family had filed a lawsuit alleging excessive force by a police officer who shot unarmed Heenan in 2012 after investigating a possible burglary.
  • An Arizona police officer shot and killed 24 year old Tyler Young at a traffic stop. The officer claims he feared for his life when Young reversed his car into the officer’s motorcycle knocking him over in the process.
  • Two separate officer-involved shootings in New Jersey are getting grand jury reviews. The reviews related to the killings of Kevin Allen and Elvin Diaz in May this year.
  • Waco police shoot dead a man attempting to steal $80 of brisket from a grocery store. The suspect was being detained in a security room in the store when he allegedly lunged at the officers with a knife.

    RE: Seneca
    this is a bad deal, but when a gun is pulled, & you’re told to put your hands up.. you should probably listen.. Why no comment from the passenger? or video or audio ?

    have a good one..
