Title: Family of Dallas Man Killed by Cop Says Officer's Story Doesn't Add Up

Attorneys for the family say witnesses contradict some details of the officer's account.

Facebook/Kaufman County Jail

The family of Botham Jean, who was shot to death by an off-duty Dallas police officer on Thursday, is questioning the officer's account of what happened the night of the fatal shooting.

Amber Guyger told responding officers she had just returned to her apartment complex following her shift with the Dallas Police Department. Guyger said "she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own," according to a statement put out by police hours after the shooting.

An arrest affidavit for Guyger, who's been charged with manslaughter, lays out in more detail her account of how the situation escalated. According to the affidavit, Guyger lives on the third floor of the complex in apartment #1378, while Jean lived directly above her in apartment #1478. She parked on the fourth floor, then attempted to enter Jean's apartment using her "unique door key," the affidavit says. Since the door was already ajar, it "fully opened under the force of the key insertion."

At that point, the affidavit says Guyger encountered Jean, who she believed to be a burglar. After giving "verbal commands" that Jean ignored, Guyger shot him twice, according to the warrant. It wasn't until after the shooting that Guyger realized she was in the wrong apartment, the affidavit says.

But Jean's family thinks there are holes in that story. For one thing, attorneys for the family said at a press conference yesterday that Jean wasn't the type of person to leave his front door ajar, the Dallas Morning News reports.

One lawyer, Lee Merritt, isn't so sure Guyger thought Jean's apartment was her own when she shot him. "There are witnesses who said that before the gunshots they heard the officer knocking at the door and repeatedly saying, 'Let me in,'" Merritt tells The Washington Post. After the shots were fired, one witness reported that Jean said: "Oh my God, why did you do that," Merritt added at the press conference. The attorney said he believes those were Jean's last words.

The shooting is currently being investigated by the Texas Rangers state police force. Authorities conducted a blood test on Guyger, but have yet to reveal the results. Guyger, a four-year veteran of the police department who has been placed on paid administrative leave, was arrested Sunday but later set free on $300,000 bail. She could face additional charges—including murder—depending on what a grand jury decides after hearing the case.

For now, Jean's mother just wants to know why her son was killed. "The number one answer that I want is, 'What happened?'" Allison Jean told reporters yesterday. "I have asked too many questions, and I've been told that there are no answers yet. I'm looking forward to the powers that be to come up with the answers to make me more satisfied that they are doing what is in the best interest of getting justice for Botham." (1 image)

lol... how stupid.

Everybody is capable of leaving a door ajar, unintentionally.

The problem is, libtard MSM, potatoes in general and Dicktard want to turn all incidents where potatoes get shot, racial.

Yeah, that's what I do before committing first degree murder. I bang on the door yelling, "Let me in" to attract the greatest number of witnesses that I can.

Her story is pretty flimsy and coincidental, though I'm not saying it didn't happen.

First, she parked on the 4th floor instead of the 3rd -- probably because lower levels were full. That's happened to me, but I always remember saying to myself that now I have to take the stairs. She didn't.

Second, she tried her keycard and her apartment door "opened under the force of her entering her keycard" because it was ajar. She's a cop (and a woman) entering "her" apartment at 10:00 at night and "her" door is ajar?

Now we've seen that scene hundreds of times in movies. But ... no alarm bells? Just waltz right in like it's normal? No double checking her card or the number on the apartment door -- not even, "Hello, anybody in here? or "Police, come on out!"

According to her the apartment was “nearly completely dark”. No lights, TV or radio on? The guy is just sitting there in the dark? Another coincidence since, had it been lit, she would have realized this wasn't her apartment.

Seems I'm willing to give the cop more of a benefit of a doubt than you. Mark the calendar. Maybe she did say those things. If someone said them to you late one night while trying to open your door, how would you react?

Not that she didn't f up entirely. She obviously did. But either it was intentional murder or an unfortunate case of confusion (for which she is entirely responsible).

If it was due to confusion, then the questions are just about her state of mind that led to it. Combine that with 100k to one odds of the setting where the door wasn't completely closed & latched, the lights being out in the room in the other side, and the victim doing & thinking & saying whatever he did, etc.

If it was premeditated murder, then what's the motive?

The family will naturally not be satisfied with any explanation or account given by the police or the cop. It will never make sense to them. That's normal psychology in a case where they lose a family member like this.

Well, what really happened was this: She did go home after work. It's 10:00 at night, she's tired, and just wants to sleep.

But the neighbor right above her is playing rap music so loud that she can't think straight. So she walks upstairs (still in her uniform which should intimidate the asshole), bangs on the door and tells him to open up (per the witness testimony)

He does, she tells him to turn it down, he says fuck you, and she shoots him. Justifiable homicide. Can I get an A-men?

Never thought I'd see the day when you'd suggest a murder 1 motive for a cop.

Only because you asked for one, amigo.

Even if Jean's apartment door was unlocked, Guyger should have held onto the open door and knocked and then remained outside the premises.

I don't believe a word she says and go from there on this one.
