amber guyger will have a little time to think about what she’s done

so the verdict is back.
some of us wanted amber guyger to spend the rest of her days in prison to rot.
i wanted her to never rest well being haunted by her demons.
*shrug*
well this is what they decided for her…

Amber Guyger, the former Dallas police officer convicted of murder for fatally shooting her unarmed neighbor in his apartment, was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison.

Guyger, 31, learned her fate after a sentencing hearing that included emotional testimony from the family of the victim, Botham Jean, and revelations that she shared racist and offensive texts and social media posts.

Prosecutors had asked jurors to sentence Guyger to at least 28 years — symbolic because Jean would have turned 28 last Sunday.

ugh.

she’ll be out when she’s 41.
i’m sure that “starting over” is gonna be difficult.

one thing tho,
and i don’t know if it’s how my petty is set up,
but this really annoyed me:

i mean,
i guess it’s taking the high road,
but the hug at the end really made me roll my eyes.

Am I the only one?

the text messages about mlk and other things

Rivera texted to Guyger in March 2018: “Damn I was at this area with 5 different black officers !!! Not racist but damn.”

She responded: “Not racist but just have a different way of working and it shows.”

Guyger texted with another officer last year about the Martin Luther King Jr. parade in Dallas.

“When does this end lol,” the officer wrote to Guyger.

“When MLK is dead … oh wait …,” she joked.

Two days before Guyger fatally shot Jean, she texted with someone who had adopted a German Shepherd.

The dog’s owner wrote of the animal: “Although she may be racist.”

Guyger responded, “It’s okay … I’m the same,” and later added: “I hate everything and everyone but y’all.”

i know we are supposed to forgive others,
but she took a life of an innocent black male.
her whole story and excuse was fraudulent.

I wonder if the hugs would have been in place if she was found innocent?

hm.

  1. Black people are too forgiving! I was pissed when the judge hugged her, I need that judge to hug every convicted murderer that comes through her courtroom!
    The judge & the brothers action gave justification to the jury to only give her 10 years!

    1. Black folks will always turn the other cheek. Shit is sad af. I know this is not politically correct to say, screw the judge, the victim’s brother & Guyger. Smh. An innocent man is dead.

  2. Y’all gonna stop following those forced religious ways. Talking about it’ better to forgive. Nature is not forgiving and neither should you be in certain circumstances. While folks on Twitter are giving the ole “Jesus said forgive” speeches, we need to remind them that people are dying all over the world in a number of horrible ways. Rapists, child murderer and sex trafficking…& they still talking about forgive.

    We need to remind them she trespassed into his home and killed him in his own house.

    We need to remind them that if he shot her, he would be facing triple the sentence she got, if not life.

    Forgiving someone who stole something from you is a whole lot hell of different than forgiving someone for killing my brother because you assumed he was a theif…and he was unarmed in his OWN home.

    All these fake over religious nuts on Twitter are a complete waste of time to the real cause.

    An innocent man is dead…
