    Media Bias- Another young man shot by Police

    I just came across a story today about a young man who was shot by a police officer. The first thing that comes to anyone's mind is this thing going on in Ferguson, MO. But this one happened in Salt Lake City. I did a search of the young man's name on all the major news networs to see if this story was covered and it wasn't. Why? I think its because this young man is white. We shouldn't be focusing on white & black you know why? It keeps racism alive. We should be covering the fact that cops are shooting our kids without thinking about it. I suggest someone please investigate this and bring it to light. If you do not, is it because racism sells more papers? The young man's name is Dillon Taylor. The police were wearing body cameras. The footage is not being released until the investigation is over. I've not heard about any of this until I stumbled across a facebook post from a friend. However my eyes and ears have been overrun by the happenings in Ferguson.
