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.
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.
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 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?
