To the person talking about shady business. First of all you need to keep your reckless comments to yourself. He was a good person. this is not the place for the negativity so keep that crap to yourself.

Homicides vs. murders

By on

Maybe I'm being pedantic, but it seems like there's a difference - that self-defense guy and the teen brother apparently caused somebody to die, but they're not being charged with murder.

Hope they'll find him

By on

I hope the police will talk to the neighbors. I was there. 3 shots and I knew somebody was down. I could not see anything from place where I live but for 100% people were watching everything from inside their apartments. They were arguing over there for about 15-20 minutes before shots. I am white and i don't care if he was black yellow, pink or blue!! He was a human.

He was a good person. We

By on

He was a good person. We dated and not once did he fail to make myself and anyone else smile. Love him beyond words could explain a friendship that was amazing. So for the dumbass talking shady business speak the fuck up. Know him for 10 years he one thing he wasn't about was shady business. Rip Yayo no one should ever go down like that.

I hope if anyone knows any

By on

I hope if anyone knows any information about what happened to my best friends lil brother to come forward with what you know. I know you people believe in that street code about not snitching but it's time to put an end to this senseless violence. A precious life was taken for no reason. No one deserves to have their life taken from them. Daniel was a talented, kind, big hearted young man who loved his family. He touched so many lives in his 23yrs on this earth. This has left a huge hole in our hearts. Plz if your going to leave comments let them be positive ones and nothing negative. He's resting in peace now. We will leave it in the hands of God. Whoever did this I pray that you are never able to sleep again. Your life will never be the same. We will not stop until your caught. Justice for Yayo is what we will get.

not just "another black man murdered"

By on

Daniel wasn't a gangster or a bad person. he didn't deserve to go out the way he did. it is to my, and all of our, hopes that who ever is responsible gets what they deserve. he was my friend, a very good one at that. he always made people laugh, helped them the best way he could, he was a REAL friend, true to his words. i am so grateful i got to meet him, and hang out with him and get to know the person he truly was. i hope this case doesnt get turned into "another black man killed in boston" we MUST find justice for Daniel.

Rest In Peace my good friend Daniel 'Yayo' Taylor.
the good always die young, i believe that now.

Show respect properly

By on

To all friends of Daniel. Please show him respect and don't leave empty bottles on the sidewalk. I understand your grieving. I am 100% the are neighbors who saw what happened but they are scared to talk. Also what will they think if they see in the morning empty bottles next to the candles? Some of them will find it an excuse to be quiet. You just put the profiling tool in hand. They'll say " its just another black guy smoking weed and drinking".
Please come, grief, show him respect and share memories. Like I said before I hope they'll find the killer.

Murder of Another Child of God

By on

Please pray for Daniel and his family. He will be missed by so many. The senseless killing has got to stop. This young man had his whole life to live and it was taken away in one second. I hope the police are able to find the person who took his life just like that. No one deserves to leave the world that way. RIP Daniel the world is mourning you! Please watch down on us and protect us all that no harm comes to anymore people of the this world.
God Bless Daniel's family and may god ease their grieving hearts, minds and souls.

Senseless Death

By on

It's really a sad day as a parent that you are afraid for your kids to leave the house in fear of them being shot down in the street and left to die. Everyone who is killed is not a thug gang banger drug dealer . Some are from good hard working families who have taught them right from wrong and to respect others, some of them who's lives where cut short where educated and had a bright futures ahead of them, an wanted to go somewhere in life, but clearly these low life's cowards that makes the dicission to end someone else's life just because, Clearly they don't care about what happens to them, it's obvious, your most likely carrying an illegal firearm around looking for trouble why would you have any regards for anyone else ! Rest in Paridise Young Man ! Because These Streets Are Truly Hell ! On Earth !
