NR makes a compelling case.. I hadn't

thought of it in those exact terms. But, it makes sense to me.. and I'm sure they have lawyers around there who know the law.

It is amazing they're taking the victim's side.

I'm hoping the same, Crunchy Frog.. I'm glad I saw your OP.

First, police sources are reportedly indicating that Guyger may actually try to raise the fact that Jean didn’t obey her commands as a defense. It’s not a defense. The moment she opened the door to an apartment that wasn’t her own, she wasn’t operating as a police officer clothed with the authority of the law. She was instead a criminal. She was breaking into another person’s home. She was an armed home invader, and the person clothed with the authority of law to defend himself was Botham Shem Jean.

Which brings us to the second troubling element of the story. So far, Guyger is only charged with manslaughter. But all the available evidence indicates that she intentionally shot Jean. This wasn’t a warning shot gone awry. The pistol didn’t discharge during a struggle. She committed a crime by forcing open Jean’s door, deliberately took aim, and killed him.

Texas law defines murder quite simply as “intentionally or knowingly caus[ing] the death of an individual.” Manslaughter, by contrast, occurs when a person “recklessly” causes death. Guyger’s warning and her deliberate aim scream intent. She may have “recklessly” gone to the wrong apartment, but she very intentionally killed Jean. There is a chance that the grand jury will increase the charge to murder, so the early manslaughter charge is tentative. But I ask you: If Jean had mistakenly gone to Guyger’s apartment and then gunned her down in cold blood after demanding that she follow his commands, would he face a manslaughter charge?

Thanks for calling out the STUPID SOCIOPATHIC SHITE

Senator Schumer.

OH PLEASE.. There are plenty of Democrats calling

trump out and many never said they "..would work with trump..", either.

I'm glad BS said that but don't be trying to give him sole credit.. it's Divisive.. and not true.

At least BS is not insulting the Democratic party this minute. Calling it "weak" "elite" "the party of the 1% and Not of working people..".

"She really went out of her way to speak to the first responders on the site to reassure them,” he said. “I never forgot it.”

Allies was also struck by how Clinton quickly grasped the potential health risks of Ground Zero, and how doggedly she pursued treatment for those who suffered.

Senator Clinton was at the forefront over dealing with it, she showed herself to be a fighter.”

That's right! omg. I just found these articles..

It does look like a cover up between Guyger and the Officials..

Botham Jean's door was unlocked, lights were off when Officer Amber Guyger mistook his apartment for hers, official says

snip//

The Dallas police officer who killed 26-year-old Botham Jean in his own apartment got inside because the door wasn’t locked, a law enforcement official said Sunday.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/dallas-police/2018/09/09/botham-jeans-door-unlocked-amber-guyger-mistook-apartment-official-says

So.. the police are going with a different story than the witnesses. Killed because she "came off a 15 hour shift" and "he left his door unlocked and she didn't notice the RED DOORMAT."

Family disputes official account of the moments before Amber Guyger shot Botham Jean

One attorney, Lee Merritt, said two independent witnesses had come forward to say they heard knocking on the door in the hallway before the shooting. Merritt said one witness reported hearing a woman's voice saying, "Let me in, let me in." Then they heard gunshots, he said.

Lawyers for Jean's family disputed the narrative in the arrest warrant affidavit at a news conference streamed live by WFAA-TV (Channel 8) Monday evening, saying Jean was a meticulous man who wouldn't have neglected to close and lock his door.

After the gunshots, one of the witnesses reported hearing what she thought was a man's voice saying, "Oh my God, why did you do that," Merritt said.

This affidavit is very self-serving," said lawyer Benjamin Crump, who is also representing the family. "Botham Jean is not here to give his version of what happened because he's dead."

Prosecutor suggests stronger charge against Dallas officer who killed neighbor

Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson also said any notion of preferential treatment for officer Amber Guyger was separate from her office.

snip//

That was totally their call, that was totally their responsibility, that was totally their lead," Johnson said at a news conference about how investigators first handled the case. "I cannot dictate to the Texas Rangers the process, the investigation, what they do and what they don't do."

She added that she had a "spirited conversation" with the Texas Rangers for two hours on Sunday about the manslaughter charge.

Why did it take three days to charge this police officer? To get the story together?

How weird, though... "yelling to "open door!" when you think it's your apt?
