Dec 14 - Black Teen Spanked on Viral Video Found Dead

A teenager who was a fleeting sensation on YouTube earlier this year after he was videotaped being spanked by his uncle for boasting about gang ties on his Facebook page was found shot to death last week, just steps away from his Terrytown neighborhood home.

According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Jefferson Parish Sheriffís Office said Michael Taylor, 16, was found shot to death shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7 when deputies responded to a report of gunshots in the area.

Taylor had been shot multiple times.

Sgt. Larry Dyess, JPSO spokesman, told the Times-Picayune that authorities had no suspect or motive in the incident.

Taylorís mother, Kimberly Ward, told the newspaper that she kept strict tabs on her son, even making him stay on the sidewalk in eyesight of their home when he went outside. The night of the shooting, she said, Taylor received a text message from a friend at about 8 p.m. and went outside to chat.

"She said she called him back inside a few minutes later to find out what was going on, and he told her he was just talking and went back outside. A few minutes later, her daughter received a text message saying that Taylor had been shot, and then another saying he was dead," the newspaper reported.

"Ward said she rushed from the house, driving around the neighborhood looking for her son, but didn't find him until she was coming back to her apartment complex. That's when she saw his body on the cold sidewalk, clad in the red sweatshirt she'd noticed when he left the house.

"I came home and saw my son on the ground," Ward said.

In addition to his mother and sister, Taylor is survived by a brother, grandparents and a host of relatives and friends. His funeral is scheduled for this morning.

In the YouTube video, posted in January, Taylorís uncle ordered him to disavow any ties to gangs, announced that the family "donít come from that sh--," and then proceeded to take off his belt and spank Taylor in full view of the laptop camera.

Rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman spoofed the video, as did another video site called StuntKidzTV.

The original video sparked tons of reaction, from people who applauded the uncleís actions, calling it an overdue return to old-school parenting and discipline, to those who speculated the public humiliation might drive the teenager deeper into a gang's circle because the youth had been humiliated.

"I am not surprised to hear that this young man's life has ended violently. When I saw the video, I kept thinking that by beating this youth, the uncle was setting him up for some kind of tragedy, either prison or an early grave," said Stacey Patton, who in April launched the web site SparetheKids.com to offer black parents alternatives to corporal punishment and the tools to help foster the healthy development of children.

"I donít understand why more people don't make the connection between how children are dealt with at home and the larger societal impact," Patton said. "Studies show that maltreated youth make up a disproportionate number of youth involved in school and gang violence. Violent parental discipline increases the risk that a child will act violently later in life. The use of violent discipline teaches children that violence is an appropriate means of shaping behavior and solving problems. Physically disciplining a child has no positive impact for the child, that child's relationship with the parents, or the larger community."

Ward told the Times-Picayune that her son was mild-mannered, but had begun hanging out with tough guys, telling her that he did it for protection to avoid problems with other students.

She cited a couple of incidents that she said might have led someone to come after her son, but in each case, Ward maintained her son had been the victim of a misunderstanding or was targeted because of his connection to others who may have instigated a dispute.

She also said Taylor recently took a photo with a friend that was posted on Facebook, that the friend had been involved in an ongoing dispute with an Algiers group and that someone recently threatened Taylor when she took him to the mall recently.

Ward told the newspaper she believed her son's friends, not his actions, led to his death.

"He was guilty by a.ssociation," she said.

Not laughing at that for a second. That's some horrible sh*t. I'm laughing at a conversation I had earlier with another BX member and how this was subsequently posted afterward.

I got my a.ss beat on a daily. My dad knocked me out in in front of the school in 7 th grade. I got locked up in 7 th grade for attempted murder. The beating my dad gave me didn't make me violent I just grew up in a bad neighborhood. They picked on me cause my parents where not from America ( panama). I always had to f!ght. But I turned out good I graduated school with a 3.2 got a scholarship to college. And I just finished grad school. I was giving no chance to make it by anyone but my family. So it's not the child rearing that gets a kid k!lled its the environment u grow up in. Where u grow up can k!ll you.

The lady from that website is full of sh*t. When you don't discipline your kids and you let them run wild, that's when they end up in gangs. My parents beat the sh*t out of us. I woulda never dared join a gang. Lack of parenting is the reason n*ggas out there getting shot and robbed every gotdamn day and when black men wanna step up and do the right thing by these knucklehead kids, people got something to say about it.

As a grown man I just feel the gang sh*t is stupid....When I was younger I ran with a few of the guys from my hood but we never had to resort to sh*t like this...and I come from 1 of the worst hoods in the Tri-state area....I keep seeing all these kids dead before 16 and its cause n*ggas are just scared. The n*gga with the gun is also the n*gga that fears everyone else more than anything....


Sad sh*t, his uncle tried to save em.
