As did tweets spread by the internet lynch mob...release of details about items found in Botham's apartment on the same day as his funeral, and the suggestion by some in the media that had Botham had his own gun and used it, he might be alive today. She said she only realized she wasn't in her own home after she had shot him and turned on the lights.
Mother of #BothamJean, Allison Jean, says the "smear" of her son is unacceptable. Now, Fox News is running a smear campaign against Jean.
Attorneys for the family of a man who was killed by a Dallas police officer who said she mistook his apartment for her own are demanding that the officer be fired.
Yes, Amber Guyger now faces a manslaughter charge, but even Dallas DA Faith Johnson says her investigation is nowhere near complete.
She said it was dark inside and she thought Jean was a burglar, and that she shot him after he didn't obey her "verbal commands".
Some experts who aren't connected to the case say Guyger should have recognized what was really going on and stopped short of using deadly force.
In addition, Dallas News reports, Amber Guyger is only leave from the police department and allegedly "Dallas police aren't ready to discuss whether she will keep her job as an officer".
Lee Merritt, the attorney representing Jean's family, criticized the searching of Jean's apartment too.
Hundreds of friends and family filled a Texas church Thursday to celebrate Jean's life and condemn the actions that "snatched" him in his prime.
She called 911 and, when asked where she was, returned to the front door to see she was in the wrong unit, according to the affidavit. "It did nothing else", Merritt said.
The group peacefully marched through Downtown Dallas, stopping at the Omni Hotel, the Adolphus Hotel, the Statler Hotel, and the offices of the Dallas Morning News, FOX 4 and WFAA before returning to DPD Headquarters. I want to find out whether her apartment has been searched, whether her vehicle has been searched, and also on the Saturday when we spoke to the Texas Ranger he was saying that there was no reason in his mind that she ought to have been locked up. They include whether Guyger was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, her level of fatigue, any history of emotional or medical problems, or any history she may have had with Jean, though initial reports suggested the two did not know each other.
"You go ahead and put it in there just in case you find it", Mulder said.
