      Ha ha. That’s what I refer to as “dog justice”. What you do for one you must do for the other.

      My sheltie who is 16 years old gets three different medications. When she gets her medicine I have to give my other dog, the border collie, a spoonful of yogurt.

        My Penelope Penny has to have her chicken, cheese, and milk everyday. She’s not shy about reminding me when it’s chicken, cheese and milk time. She’ll jump on my bed, get as close as she can and begin staring at me. When that happens, I know it’s time for one of her special treats. I’ve begun telling her that she needs to get a job to help pay for her daily chicken, cheese, and milk rations, but she’s not listening. I also tell her about how bossy she is, but she doesn’t pay that any attention, either. I admit I’ve really spoiled her, but she’s a good baby and is very protective of her mama.

        Oh, yeah, they know the good stuff and when they are supposed to have it. I think it’s okay to spoil them.

    Did Amber Guyger kill Botham Shem Jean over noise? Family lawyer sees link
    “The only connection we have been able to make is that she was his immediate downstairs neighbor,” family attorney S. Lee Merritt told CNN.

    By Kia Morgan Smith – September 12, 2018

    An attorney for Botham Shem Jean, who was shot and killed by an off-duty cop who entered his apartment, said so far there’s only one thing that connects his client to the accused Dallas cop—Amber Guyger lived one floor directly above Jean’s door.

    “The only connection we have been able to make is that she was his immediate downstairs neighbor,” family attorney S. Lee Merritt told CNN host Brooke Baldwin on Tuesday.

    “And there were noise complaints from the immediate downstairs neighbors about whoever was upstairs, and that would have been Botham. In fact, there were noise complaints that very day about upstairs activity in Botham’s apartment. Botham received a phone call about noise coming from his apartment from the downstairs neighbor.”

    But everything else Guyger has since claimed in an affidavit surrounding the details of how she came in contact with the 26-year-old accountant is self-serving and “much of the affidavit doesn’t comport with common sense,” Merritt said. “Certain statements are demonstratively false.”

    Guyger told investigators that she had just ended a 15-hour shift Thursday when she returned in uniform to the South Side Flats apartment complex. She parked on the fourth floor, instead of the third, where she lived, according to the affidavit, possibly suggesting that she was confused or disoriented.

    When she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, the affidavit said.

    Merritt believes Guyger’s narrative about a “slightly ajar” door is a false one.

    Merritt described Jean as a meticulous accountant for PriceWaterhouseCoopers, “somebody who is intentional in everything that they do. He doesn’t prop doors open when they’re expecting guests. He wasn’t expecting any guests,” he told CNN.

    He said two witnesses reported hearing a ruckus. “Both heard a knock or pounding… They heard pounding followed by a female voice saying open up, let me in, not a command by an officer,” he explained. Then he said they heard gunshots, followed by a male voice saying, “oh my God, why did you do that!”

    Drunk, high, out to just kill someone to earn bones, what? Hard to believe if shooter had been a civilian and dead person a police officer that an arrest would have been immediate – if the shooter would then even survive the arrest. This whole police force should be taking a knee!

  40. How long before you act @GOP? Trump is denying 3000 Americans died in Puerto Rico. It’s so offensive and insulting to the dead and their families. IMPEACH this unhinged monster in our sacred Oval Office.
