*Amber Guyger, the former Dallas police officer, has been in prison less than a year for murdering her neighbor, Botham Jean.
Already she’s trying to scam the system so she can get released early. Her attorneys have asked a judge to reduce her murder charge to criminally negligent homicide! Reduced charges could make Guyger eligible for parole immediately.
Guyger shot and killed Jean, her neighbor, in 2018. Guyger said she came home to the wrong apartment, mistook Jean for a burglar and shot him dead. Guyger’s apartment was on another floor. She was sentenced to ten years in prison.
In cases where police are convicted of a crime in the line of duty they rarely – if ever – serve their full sentence. Most of the time these bully, liar, killer cops are released early for what the system calls ‘good behavior.’ Guyger could have been sentenced to life in prison. If this convict really was remorseful as she claimed during her trial, why are she and her attorneys working to get a judge to reduce her charges so she can be release less than a year later? Could it be this was the plan from the day she was sentenced?
Guyger’s actions are an example of her lack of remorse for taking the life of an innocent man and her disregard for due process and punishment. The legal process that allows a convicted murderer to reduce their charges and essentially escape punishment shows how the criminal justice system is racially biased against ADOS – African Descendants of Slaves.
