Cop Charged With Manslaughter:
“A Dallas police officer has been charged with manslaughter.
Amber Guyger, the off-duty Dallas police officer charged with manslaughter for shooting a man in his own apartment, claimed she shot and killed 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean after he ignored her “verbal commands.”
Guyger was returning home from a 12-hour shift in uniform on Thursday night when she walked into Jean’s apartment, which she said she mistook for her own, and shot him twice. According to a Texas Rangers arrest affidavit released Monday, Guyger said she fired her gun after Jean ignored her “verbal commands” and then called 911.
Jean died later at an area hospital.
About 150 people marched on Dallas police headquarters Monday night to denounce Jean’s death as well as the recent shooting of Jorge Olguin, who was killed by a security guard earlier this month after a dispute at a family party.”
