Why has everyone heard of George Floyd and no one has heard of Ta’Kiya Young?

On August 24, 2023, a police officer of the 14-member Blendon Township (Ohio) Police Department shot and killed Ta’Kiya Young, a 21-year-old woman being detained for suspicion of shoplifting alcohol from a grocery store. The body worn camera evidence shows Young operating a vehicle in the parking lot of the grocery store during daylight hours. She doesn’t do what the two arriving police officers tell her to do. With one officer at the driver’s window, and another officer standing in front of the vehicle on the driver’s side, Ms. Young turns the steering wheel of the car as far to the right as she can turn it and slowly begins moving the car forward. The Blendon Township officer standing in front of the vehicle fires one shot at close range through the windshield striking and killing the woman. Serge and Clarke discuss this case and — at the end of the discussion — you will wonder why this case hasn’t enraged America as much as the George Floyd case did.
