Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: THE VERDICT IS INI!!!!Amber Guyger Murder Trial 2019
First and foremost I want to thank the most high God for this victory and guilty verdict in the Amber Guyger murder trial for the assassination of Botham Jean. We are ecstatic and overjoyed that the jury had clear thinking and reasoning as human beings to see Botham Jean not simply as another “Black” man gunned down unarmed by the police but as a human being with a life ahead of him and a family and community who loved and cared about the person he was. His life was taken prematurely but his impact and the impact of this case will resonate loudly and for everyone around the world to see and hear.
Facts of this case were clear cut despite the devilish racist Guyger and her defense team putting out lie after lie in her defense in order to get her off for murder. I honestly believe had she not been found guilty there would be riots the likes of which we haven’t seen in this country since Watts and Ferguson and Detroit combined. A clear cut line of war would have been drawn where no police officer should feel safe at any time any where FOR REAL. I would expect retaliatory killings of officers similar to what we saw Christopher Dorner mete out and the gunman who killed police officers in Dallas. Why do I say that? I say it because here was a case in its extreme where society is pointing the finger at that supposedly blind lady of justice saying okay you’ve seemingly never seen it in favor of the countless victims of police gun violence when it comes to dark skinned men, women, and children alike.
Here’s your penultimate test case. A law abiding, upstanding young man from Saint Lucia, who has a good job, is not in trouble with the law and is in his own home minding his own business; has the misfortune of having a racist female cop enter his home and shoot him for no justifiable reason. While he lays dying she makes no attempt to render him any aid and her only defense is she thought she was at home even though there were too many signs pointing to the fact that she knew what she was doing when she shot and ultimately killed Botham Jean.
Police officers love to trumpet the “get out of murder charge free card” stating “I feared for my life, or the lives of my fellow officers” whenever they shoot us dead wherever that may be. I liken it to the boy who cried wolf. Sooner or later you have to wake up to what those code words mean. Police get to kill you with impunity if they just say those words while the courts and media and everyone else look the other way so long as it’s not a Caucasian person being gunned down regularly by the police.
Mind you the ones who are constantly being murdered by police aren’t the ones killing the police in retaliation at alarming rates the way one would expect any victimized community to react even when recognizing the only ones who value our lives are us. What would that lead you to think whenever you encountered an officer? In my mind it would mean I immediately fear for my life and the lives of my friends and family if they were with me during any encounter with the police. It would mean given the track record of the police and their use and abuse of power and gun violence against us as a community to react with self preservation should be our first thought.
From the very beginning of the case the truth went out first (as it usually does) then the media and law enforcement and a Coon in law enforcement licking his masters boot got together to change the narrative to help one of their own get out of facing justice. There was no video inside Mr. Jean’s apartment or body cam from Guyger to show us exactly what she did and what he did on that fateful night.
All we had to go on was her word, the 911 call she made after she shot him and the cell phone video of her pacing in the hallway after she shot this man leaving him to die alone on the floor of his own apartment. To add insult to injury there was no toxicology done on Amber Guyger after the shooting. There was no search of her actual apartment but there was a search of the victim Botham Jean’s apartment? Why did they feel the need to search his apartment after he was gunned down? The same reason they handcuff a dead man’s body even after they know they are deceased and no threat. It’s obviously a blatant display of disrespect after the fact.
Too many key points are tied to this case that have a direct correlation to the 1st and 2nd amendments. However, instead of going off on those tangents let me say this. Justice hasn’t yet been fully realized for the Jean family and many of us who have an interest in the final outcome of this case. The presiding judge has allowed the defense to offer the “Castle Doctrine” as a mitigating factor in determining Amber Guyger’s sentence.
In a nutshell the “Castle doctrine” is similar to the “Stand Your Ground” laws in states like Florida and Georgia etc. Basically we all have the right to defend our homes our castles. The fact that Guyger is claiming that she thought she was at home is proffered as justification for the killing which makes no sense. It makes no sense because she was the intruder not the victim Mr. Jean. If we as reasonable human beings use our God given intelligence and look at some basics first we will see as the jury did why her story made no sense.
First, too many of us are hardworking regular grunts who go about the daily business of working hard and very long hours just to make ends meet and maintain whatever standard of living we have. Too many of us have worked a 13 hr shift and come home exhausted but are still lucid enough to know where we live and what floor we live on when we arrive home. How many of us would ignore a big red door mat (Red Flag) in front of our apartment door when we know that we don’t own one? How many of us would forget or ignore signs in our building telling us which floor we were on when the signs are visible to us?
How many of us would claim to put an electronic key into a lock that only recognizes the key programmed for said lock? This was demonstrated on the news shortly after the slaying of Botham Jean. She changed her story from the door was ajar to the door opened when she put her key in (Red Flag #2). They showed that all the doors in that apartment building are first and foremost heavy and are slam locking electronic doors in case of fire. They showed that no matter what you do if you don’t have the right key to a lock in that apartment building the door doesn’t unlock and swing open and even if it did open without you physically holding the door it would close on its own (Red Flag #3).
A neighbor on the floor below said she heard knocking at Botham Jean’s door prior to hearing guns shots where it was reported that they heard someone we presume to be Guyger saying “let me in.” After that gun shots ring out and the neighbor began recording a pacing Amber Guyger in the hallway while on the phone with dispatch. Nowhere on her person or uniform is there any blood from Botham Jean demonstrating that she attempted any life saving measures like CPR (which she had been trained to do) (Red Flag #4).
People in Amber’s corner tried to help cover up for her racist posts on twitter where she boasted that people were lucky that she didn’t blow them away and don’t mess with law enforcement (paraphrasing). So she was itching to shoot someone before she ultimately killed Botham Jean. They scrubbed her Facebook page and twitter account but those statements attributed to her were already viewed.
She texts her police officer lover after the shooting more concerned about covering up for what she did rather than focusing all her efforts on trying to save Botham (Red Flag #5). Her acting was very poor. What do I mean by that? If you listen to her 911 call it sounds like a person who works for law enforcement and knows that her call is being recorded, doing and saying whatever she thinks will garner her sympathy for a situation she is totally culpable for.
Red Flag #6: Who enters their apartment without turning on the lights to see inside when they get home? Who willfully shoots in the dark before allowing a person whom they claim to have “given verbal commands to show hands” a chance to comply? We all know only the police have been shown time and time again to do such things and more often than not get away with it. Stephon Clark was shot and killed in his grandmother’s backyard in the dark of night holding only his cell phone. Amadou Diallo in the 90’s in the Bronx gunned down while holding his wallet. Tamir Rice a 12 year old was gunned down in broad daylight within two seconds by police while playing with a toy gun like most kids do at that age. The fact is no matter how you want to slice it, police officers have been allowed to get away with shedding our blood for any reason under the sun and have faced virtually no repercussions for it other than justification and paid leave and promotions.
When you take it as a whole it all points to her willful desire and actions to kill someone. When the prosecutors asked her did she intend to kill when she shot Botham Jean her answer was yes. Was it reasonable to do so? Not when the police station is 2 blocks away. Not when she could have taken cover outside the apartment and waited for backup and certainly not when she heard the person say “Hey hey hey”.
A sober and rational person would have said who are you? What are you doing in my apartment and cut the lights on while holding the weapon and warning that if the person moves they could be shot. She didn’t do any of the myriad of other things she could have to secure the room because she didn’t want to. She wanted to kill. Now comes the sentencing phase of this saga. Let’s see what she gets and remember the true administration of justice is the firmest pillar of good government. Those words are etched in stone on the outside edifice of a court building in downtown Manhattan. If she gets off with a slap on the wrist then this trial and verdict will have been in vain. All the talk about building community trust with law enforcement goes right out the window when justice is denied or end run around.
As a foot note while sentencing testimony is underway, evidence of Amber Guyger’s state of mind and attitude toward “black”people will be introduced which wasn’t part of the trial which I don’t understand. Perhaps it would’ve elevated this crime to a hate crime murder which I already suspected it was from the start. It is expected that Guyger’s text messages about an MLK Jr. parade in which she was working security will be released. In the messages she states that the parade goers could be pushed or pepper sprayed to hasten the end of the parade and when asked when it would end she replied when MLK is dead. Apologists for this cowardly demonic devil in blue can say whatever they like to try and spin this but there isn’t a thing they can do to sway a sane rational mind reading her own words and thoughts she so cavalierly expressed. I hope the jury does the right thing again and disregards the “Castle Doctrine” defense during sentencing and gives her the maximum of life in prison.
