As an update to this year’s earlier post A thief in the night… former DPD officer Amber Guyger has now been convicted of murder and sentenced to ten years in prison for the 2018 shooting of Botham Jean.
For those who don’t recall the details around this shooting, Officer Guyger entered Jean’s own apartment and fatally shot him. It seems that single statement is the only thing jurors and the judge cared about or even wanted to think about when convicting this woman, and no one wanted to think logically or hear anything about the circumstances that obviously explain this unfortunate event as an accident – and therefore what should’ve been a manslaughter conviction NOT a murder conviction.
The series of events are as follows:
- Guyger mistakenly parked on a different floor than usual of her apartment complex’s garage
- She got to what she thought was her apartment door and found it unlocked and slightly ajar which was noticed as she attempted to put her key in, which instead pushed the door open
- The apartment was darkly lit and she heard someone inside
- She pulled out her service weapon and issued verbal commands to what she thought was an intruder in her own apartment
- Jean, being black, and inside of his own apartment, did not follow any commands, and instead rushed toward Guyger yelling “Hey! Hey! Hey!”
- Guyger shot Jean in the chest, only afterwards realizing that she was in fact NOT in her own apartment facing an intruder, but that she was the intruder in Jean’s apartment
First, it’s an honest mistake to accidentally either open or attempt to open the door of someone else’s apartment in modern complexes with attached garages. As stated in this year’s earlier post, this has happened to me before, and I’ve also had keys get inserted into my apartment door numerous times over the years by other residents thinking they were at their own doors. This happens. It is fact.
Most modern complexes have the same exact interior/exterior styling for the hallways on all floors, with only the numbers on the doors indicating the difference. MOST people don’t always look at that number on the door as they are entering their apartment. Most people walk the same route every day and feel their way to the door, but when you park on a different garage floor and aren’t thinking about it, you CAN arrive at the wrong apartment door. This is exactly what happened to me one day a few years back. Again, it happens. This is fact. It happens a LOT actually.
This happened to Amber Guyger as well, but since the door was unlocked she was able to walk in and have the mistaken feeling that not only was she inside of her own apartment, but that there was an intruder there as well (this could all have been avoided had the door been locked btw). Due to the current political climate in this country, and the fact that she is white and Botham Jean was black…. not only was the charge escalated from manslaughter to murder when he was killed, she was convicted of murder resulting in African-Americans and their social justice warriors damn near dancing in the streets since they effectively got what they feel is some revenge for the various police-on-black shootings that have occurred over the decades. In this case, the jury consisted mostly of people of color and the judge was also African-American. After the conviction and sentencing one juror stated “all 12 of us said she was guilty probably within five minutes of being in there”. Guyger never had a chance.
With African-Americans in 2019 this is about settling a score that blacks in this country feel has been stacked against them. Never mind the fact that frequently (not all of the time, but frequently) blacks are shot by police because of a failure to follow simple instructions during a high stress situation – in fact, blacks nearly always want to escalate those situations due to the feeling of “being persecuted” that they carry around with them from birth to death due to American culture drilling it into their heads all of their lives. In fact….THIS event could possibly ALSO have been prevented had Jean just followed instructions when having a gun pointed at him, instead of playing the usual black guy and getting over-the-top offended for being hassled inside of his own home. I mean, how DARE this white woman come into my apartment and tell ME what to do!
Well…he’s dead now because of that aggression that he let loose instead of following the instructions which would’ve ended up eventually in him communicating to her that he was in his own apartment and her embarrassingly de-escalating the situation and leaving – with both people still alive. Jean probably could’ve gotten a nice settlement out of the deal from the DPD as well, but instead…he played the aggressive black man with the startled white woman cop and lost his life, and got her put into jail for ten years. Great job Jean!
After all of these types of incidents, it makes one wonder, why African-Americans can’t just learn to be like the rest of the nation? For most of us, if an officer busts into our house with a gun drawn, guess what we’ll do? We’ll FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS and sort the dumb shit out LATER. Not black men….they have to right the wrong directly there on the spot, except that it never EVER actually happens that way – not ever! They either end up losing their lives over the matter or getting arrested and facing resisting arrest charges if not more. When will African-Americans finally learn? Probably never, because apparently black culture would like to rack up as many points on their “we’re the victims” score that they can in order to facilitate their continuous crying about not being successful while at the same time committing more crimes per person than any other racial group in the United States.
What is especially disgusting are the online comments around this whole thing. It’s like we have an angry mob out for blood over this event, with staggering numbers of people apparently either not knowing what the difference between a MANSLAUGHTER charge is as compared to a murder charge, or just not caring because they want revenge on white people.
It’s plainly and blatantly obvious that Guyger would never have orchestrated this entire episode just to pre-meditatively kill Jean. The idea and concept is just preposterous and the prosecution failed to show any reason for her to harbor malice against him – they didn’t even KNOW each other. So HOW IN THE HELL was this woman convicted of murder instead of manslaughter as the accidental nature of it all warranted?
Today…in 2019…this is no longer about the actual laws. This is no longer about the true definitions and differences between charges. Today this is about the racial revenge that African-Americans will seek against Caucasians in this country UNTIL THE END OF TIME. It will never stop. It will never abate. This will persist forever, and blacks will never be able to live in this country peacefully with the rest of us. African-Americans will continue to commit staggering numbers of violent crimes, their fathers will continue to abandon their children, and blacks will continue cry, piss, and moan about being “victims” of “the system”. If ANY situation occurs like what Guyger experienced, the white person is DONE FOR. The politics of today demand that a manslaughter charge be raised to murder for no reason, and that a conviction of the evil white person must happen regardless of if it flies in the face of all logic on this earth and everything holy in the universe.
This all begs the question, if THIS event didn’t warrant a manslaughter charge, then WHAT DOES? Because apparently a premeditated or “crime of passion” murder equals murder….AND an accidental killing…equals murder? There effectively is now NO way to get a manslaughter charge anymore after this precedent – manslaughter no longer exists apparently – unless it were a black accidentally killing a white person right? THAT would be an “accident“….
Welcome to 2019 where your manslaughter charge now equals murder….IF you are white!
