Coverage of Amber Guyger Murder Trial

Former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger is on trial for murder after she fatally shot Botham Shem Jean on September 6, 2018.

Guyger was off duty but still in uniform when she went into Jean’s apartment at South Side Flats. She told investigators she believed she was walking into her own apartment and shot Jean believing he was an intruder.

  11. #AmberGuyger I heard on WFAA live chat the Defense had expert witnesses they were planning to testify and they were from out of town. They were to testify to Amber Guyger’s state of mind and Judge Tammy Kemp says they CAN’T go there.

      Well, her handlers have obviously told her to show remorse. Juries like to see remorse.

      But when I look at her scrunched up face pretending to cry, it just enrages me.

      I really hope she gets the prison sentence she deserves and then she can cry for real.

    Defense arguing for David Armstrong’s testimony to come in about Guyger’s state of mind. It AIN’T happening. Judge says he’s no expert. And Judge is not going to allow testimony Botham Jean was 13-14 ft from door when he was shot based on where a pair of flip flops were because there were several pair of shoes in the room. It wasn’t proven what pair of shoes he was wearing.

    Here’s another one. I’m wondering if the killer’s social media postings will be evidence in the trial. My prediction is that she will take the stand and cry a river (same as Johannes Mehserle, BART cop who killed Oscar Grant), to try to stay out of prison.

    I was thinking about how these DPD cops immediately tried to protect the killer because she was a cop. Part of the “brotherhood” (ha ha ha).

    Well, so much for theory that body cams and training can turn a bad cop into a good cop. These PD’s need to get better at HIRING and FIRING. Police Departments in this country are housing some mighty bad people and we may as well face that, otherwise the problem is never solved.

    It’s not a few “bad apples.”
