In a story that has been disturbing from the beginning, ex-Dallas police officer Amber Guyger has been indicted by a grand jury in the murder of Botham Jean.
The announcement was made on Friday.
Fox News reports:
Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson on Friday thanked and praised the grand jury for the “diligence they have given to this case.”
“We presented the evidence and we explained the law,” she said.
The district attorney’s office made sure its investigative efforts were thorough “so we would know all the pieces of evidence we need to take before the grand jury,” Johnson said.
She added that she believed Jean’s family were “very happy” with the indictment.
Members of Jean’s family spoke to reporters after the district attorney, including his parents. His mother said she was “satisfied” with the murder indictment “because I truly believe that she inflicted tremendous evil on my son.”
“I look forward to the next step, which is a conviction of murder of Amber Guyger and more so, of a penalty, the proper penalty, that will cause her to reflect on what she has done and the pain that she has caused, not only my son, but my family, my church, my country,” she said.
Of course, Guyger was released on bail while those protesting Jean’s death were held in jail. That’s real Blue privilege people, like it or not.
However, they did search Jean’s apartment, and in an apparent smear of the innocent man killed by one of their own, Dallas police turned over a tiny smidgen of marijuana in his apartment, as though that should count against him for Guyger taking his life. The police department then refused to release the 911 call by Guyger.
Sadly, Senator Ted Cruz said we shouldn’t blame Guyger, who admitted killing Jean. I don’t know who else we would blame.
I have always thought something wasn’t quite right in the entire episode. Jean lived on an entirely different floor and hat a bright red floormat in front of his door. Then there is an issue that a person entering the apartment would know the furniture layout was not their own.
Additionally, we have neighbors that dispute Guyger’s account of what happened.
Let’s see exactly where this case leads.
I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that there is much more going on between Jena and Guyger that we have been told, whether a lover’s spat or whether something else, but I don’t buy the narrative that she was merely tired and thought she was in her apartment. What about you?
