By August of 2014, Dillon Taylor’s life had taken several turns for the worst. According to two Facebook posts created days prior to Dillon’s death, his family turned their backs on him, he was living on the streets struggling to eat, and was expecting several warrants out for his arrest. “I’ll die before I go do a lot of time in a cell,” Dillon posts on August 7th, followed by “It’s about my time soon,” two days later. On the night of August 11th, Dillon was found waving a gun in the air. Dillon was shot by officers when he refused to comply.
