On Tuesday, Salt Lake County's district attorney found a police officer was justified in shooting and killing an unarmed who didn't put his hands up. Dillon Taylor, 20, was at a local 7-Eleven with his brother and cousin on Aug. 11. Police arrived that night after reports that three suspicious armed men were in the area. When cops commanded Taylor, who had his hands in his waistband, to put his hands in the air, he replied “Nah, fool” (as heard on a police body camera). Taylor then proceeded to pull one hand out and lift his shirt to his chest. Officer Bron Cruz reacted by opening fire, hitting Taylor once in the chest and once in the abdomen, killing him. Taylor and his companions were unarmed, but medical examiners found Taylor's blood-alcohol content was over twice the legal limit for driving. Meanwhile, a South Carolina office facing voluntary manslaughter charges was indicted by a grand jury on a misdemeanor charge of "misconduct in office," normally reserved for officers who ask for bribes.
