An Armed Carjacker Died Running From the Cops, And The Thug’s Mom Is Whining About…

No matter how it happens, any parent who has to bury a child is left with questions on top of their grief.

It is always difficult saying goodbye to someone we love and cherish. As Family and friends must say goodbye to their beloved who no longer be here.

Teisha Cook, a mother from Baltimore, Maryland, found out that her son had been killed by a Baltimore County police car a block from her home. However, Cook had no idea that the decision of his son would be the last for him.

Cook’s 20-year-old son Dion Taylor and his two friends, 16-year-old Taron Donta Kelly, and a third unnamed suspect carried out an armed carjacking. They carjacked a pizza delivery person, and after stealing the car, the culprits were spotted by police, prompting the trio to initiate what would quickly turn out to be a deadly pursuit.

When a person chooses to flee a pursuing officer, he or she accepts the physical and legal consequences of resisting arrest. Unfortunately, these suspects do not consider the consequences of their actions, which can easily lead to a disastrous outcome in the blink of an eye.

Within a short period of time, the car slowed, and two of the suspects got out and fled on foot. But Cook‘s son, Dion Taylor, tragically turned unexpectedly into Highgate Drive as he ran from the police. As a result, one of the officers struck Taylor, who was instantly killed.

Now, in a bizarre change of event, Cook insists that her son did nothing wrong because of the pursuing officer’s single action, despite the fact that Taylor and his companions were verified to have been armed during the carjacking before leading police on the ultimately fatal chase. Cook seemingly suggests that her son’s death justifies his prior behavior and that the police purposefully mowed him down. “He was not a criminal, My son was a homebody…[The police] crashed into him and then ran him over,” She said.

Cook argued that her son was unfairly murdered, but Baltimore County Police Corporal Shawn Vinson contradicted this assertion by pointing out that the officer responsible for the tragic collision had no intention of colliding with Taylor’s car. He acknowledged that evidence from the investigation indicates Taylor’s action caused the officer in question to unintentionally crash with the fleeing subject.

“From what we can tell at this point, there’s nothing that shows that this officer intentionally struck the suspect,” Baltimore County police Cpl. Shawn Vinson said.

But Cook continues to assert that her son did nothing wrong,

“The whole time I’m trying to find my son not knowing that he was underneath the car, and I’m running around looking for him, and I couldn’t find them, and I’m calling in and I’m texting him and there was no response,” Cook said. “My son was running through the street up here, police came this way, and one came that way crashed into them and then ran him over.”

Every parent’s Parenting styles are configurations of attitudes and behaviors of parents toward their child, however, children is more concerned with their own needs and want– which makes them the choice to do things, even engaging in risky or dangerous behavior outside the home.

Kids with behavior problems seem to have no self-control, when they seem out of control, it’s important for parents to understand that their child makes their own choices.  Everything they say and do is a choice. And they should be held accountable for their choices–and even this may mean answering to the police.

And for Cook, no matter what her son did or the kind of lifestyle he had, we can understand the mother’s grief and rage at her son’s death. Losing a kid is an unbearably tough experience. However, no one else can be held accountable for the choices made by his son that resulted in his untimely death.
