Dallas County DA Says Former Police Officer Was Indicted On Murder Charges

Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson thanked and praised the grand jury for indicting Amber Guyger for killing Jean Botham in cold blood.

Johnson is claiming that Guyger set forth to murder Botham which I am not too sure about. I think this incident falls along the lines of manslaughter.

I don’t know that much about the case yet, but I will continue to monitor. I felt she might have been under the influence of alcohol and shot Botham point blank, but I don’t think it was murder. When you are dealing with murder, you have to prove they had some connection to where the officer planned to take down Botham.

This is unprecedented. I think there could be more to this incident that the lady cop isn’t divulging like if she had prior interaction with the victim, or if she was medicated that night, etc.

Amber Guyger, the Dallas police officer who was fired earlier this year following the fatal shooting of her black neighbor inside his apartment, was indicted by a grand jury Friday on a murder charge, according to court records.

Guyger was arrested and initially charged with manslaughter in September in connection with the shooting of 26-year-old Botham Jean, a native of the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia who was employed at the accounting and consulting firm PwC in Dallas.

The online records from Dallas County were posted ahead of a news conference in which authorities announced the decision of the grand jury.

The former police officer shot Jean on the night of Sept. 6 when she returned to her home after ending her shift, according to investigators. She reported the shooting to dispatchers and told responding officers that she had mistaken Jean’s apartment for her own.

There was no political pressure. The evidence speaks for itself. An off-duty police officer, wearing an unauthorized police uniform, cannot demand entrance into private citizens home and kill the private citizen and then say they are innocent. It was proven that she did not work at any other job.

I am starting to believe she will get off because of the charge. Murder requires proof of intent, but manslaughter requires only negligence. The jury will say at the end that the state did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt the intent of the defendant to commit murder, (i.e., George Zimmerman).

The murder charge shuts the mouths of the family and community, but in the end, the jurors will let her go free. This same ploy has been executed for decades. She already knows that after it’s all said and done, she will be free and working for a different police dept.

If she’s found not guilty it’s over. She can’t be tried again. There is no justice for murder. It doesn’t bring them back to life and you aren’t made whole. Better to have gotten some sentence rather than none.
