Amber Guyger’s Booking Photo. Sept. 10th, 2018
Amber Guyger, the cop who returned ‘home’ to the wrong apartment and killed the actual tenant, Botham Green, has been fired.
I think it’s interesting that she was fired not for killing the innocent man, but for how she reacted when she was arrested:
Guyger, who was hired in November 2013, was fired after an Internal Affairs investigation concluded that the officer “engaged in adverse conduct when she was arrested for Manslaughter,” the chief’s Tweet read.
They kept her around long enough (on ‘administrative leave’, i.e. paid holiday), but obviously had to cut her loose after all the outrage.
Furthermore, she’s clearly not being on the level about the chain of events. The situation is just too implausible as it stands.

From Texas (go figure) comes the story of an off-duty cop who returned home after work, only it wasn’t her home she returned to.
After some sort of altercation with the actual resident, a man from St. Lucia, named Botham Shem Jean, the cop, still in her uniform, ends up shooting and killing him.
Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall, summed up my thoughts when she said:
“Right now there are more questions than we have answers.”
Come on, how does someone first think they’re in the right apartment, when it’s obviously not theirs? And then to get to the point where they whip out their gun and kill the guy, all while she’s wearing a cop uniform? The mind boggles.
The victim must have been in a serious state of confusion before he met his untimely end.
