WHEEL/Women in Black performed a cleansing ritual and ministry on Oct. 28 at the site of Michael Taylor’s death. A Seattle police officer shot Taylor on Oct. 11 during a planned sweep of the Jungle, an infamous homeless encampment known for higher incidents of violence. Police say Taylor and another man were engaged in a fight involving a knife. Taylor’s father told the Seattle Times, “[Michael] had a good heart.” Larry Taylor said his son — an only child — was 5 years old when he adopted him from South Korea nearly 40 years ago.
