Amber Guyger the former Dallas Police officer was found guilty of murder Tuesday afternoon. Guyger had claimed she did not realize that she was not in her apartment when she mistook Bothan Jean as a burglar and shot & killed him. Bothan was on his couch eating ice cream in HIS apartment. Guygen lived in the same complex but on the floor below the victims. Bothan was a 26 year old black man from St. Lucia attending Harding University, Guyger, was a 31 year old single white female police officer. I would have to think they decorated their apartments differently! Personally I have never walked into someones home/apartment/room and mistaken it as mine. I know what my stuff looks like, I see it everyday! I can honestly say it would take me less than a second to realize these are not my belongings. Prosecutors said no blood was found on Guygers shoes or clothes which means even though she had a first aid kit she offered no assistance to the victim even after she realized she was in his apartment and not her own. Even worse is it was discovered Guyger was texting/sexting with her on duty police officer partner who happens to be a married man during the aftermath of the shooting. Older text were discovered on her phone where she speaks disparagingly against African american Dallas police officers and blacks folks overall. The trial is now in the sentencing phase and Amber Guyger faces from 5-99 years in prison.
