Protests continue demanding justice for Botham Jean

Postado Setembro 16, 2018

Even Dana Loesch, the NRA spokeswoman who recently faced criticisms of her own after saying that Jean might still be alive if he was a "law-abiding gun owner", took offense to the framing of the tweet.

In response to the shooting and subsequent events, dozen of protesters marched Friday night from the Dallas Police Department on South Lamar Street north, toward the Dallas Morning News, FOX 4, and WFAA buildings downtown, according to ABC News affiliate WFAA. Give me justice for my son because he does not deserve what he got, ' Allison Jean said in comments reported by CNN.

A warrant signed by 292nd District Court Judge Brandon Birmingham says police meant to search Jean's apartment for "any contraband, such as narcotics", that could "constitut [e] evidence of a criminal offense".

Guyger's been charged with manslaughter.

She said it was dark inside and she thought Jean was a burglar, and that she shot him after he didn't obey her "verbal commands".

His family said they were "assassinating his character".

In addition, Dallas News reports, Amber Guyger is only leave from the police department and allegedly "Dallas police aren't ready to discuss whether she will keep her job as an officer". "To have my son smeared in such a way I think shows that there are persons who are really nasty, who are really dirty, and are going to cover up for the devil, Amber Guyger".

This is an attack on an innocent man who was killed by a cop for simply existing in his own home.

Hundreds of friends and family filled a Texas church Thursday to celebrate Jean's life and condemn the actions that "snatched" him in his prime.

The apartment's door was slightly ajar as Guyger tried to use her key, which had an electronic chip, to enter, an arrest affidavit said.

Jean was being presented to the public as a university graduate on the partnership track at a prestigious firm who sang in the choir, Merritt said.

Laurence Miller, a police psychologist in Boca Raton, Florida, said that based on the current information available, Guyger appears to have "basically followed the procedure for handling a potential deadly force encounter". Authorities haven't released the recording of Guyger's 911 call or the results of her toxicology tests.

Guyger was tested for drugs and alcohol after the incident but the findings of those tests have not been released.

Lee Merritt, an attorney for Jean's family, says that the search "highlights just sort of the nefarious nature of their investigation".
