Dallas cop Amber Guyger has been found guilty of murder in the shooting death of Botham Jean inside his own apartment. Ya knew this one was coming because pretty much nobody has this chick’s back. And there was no way a jury with 2 white people on it was going to let a white cop off the hook for killing a black guy in his own apartment. A guilty verdict would prevent the inevitable rioting.
I’m sure other turtle riders have been following this story like I have. It’s a tough one. Botham Jean was a completely innocent man in his home who did absolutely nothing wrong and was killed for it. Amber Guyger was a police officer who parked on the wrong floor of the garage, opened the unlocked door which she thought was her apartment, thought she was being robbed because she wouldn’t leave her door unlocked, saw a shadowy figure, and began shooting. I just can’t see how this is murder, but that’s just me. Seems like to murder someone you have to have a motive, and I failed to see a motive during this trial. She fucked up, she was completely in the wrong, and she should pay the price for taking a life. But to me murder is for people who are angry, or motivated by money, and specifically try to kill someone. Is it murder if a distracted driver kills someone?
On the other hand, if I was just chillin in my house and then some broad came in and started telling me not to move, I’d be like, get the fuck out of my house bitch. Da fuq was the guy supposed to do?
Anyway, I figured I’d leave this one open for discussion and put up a little poll question.
P.S. “This is for Michael Brown” is a big reason why I think she was found guilty.
