Lawyer for man shot in own apartment disgusted by police seizure

The lawyer for the man shot in his own apartment in Dallas by an off-duty police officer says the police are trying to smear the victim’s character after news was released of marijuana being found in his apartment. Botham Shem Jean, 26, was shot by officer Amber Guyger who believed she was entering her own home. The lawyer called the search ’character assassination’.

Trust our judicial system? You must not be paying attention. Our judicial system has been stacked against the citizen for some time. The released information of weed found is a smear tactic that is commonly used in high profile cases. The cop is the one who messed up and shot an innocent man if all this is a big coincidence. But something doesn't smell right

I'm kinda on the lawyer's side on this - the weed seems retroactive & irrelevant

Ironic that a lawyer is moralizing.

Search Warrant ... what search warrant. you don't need a search warrant for a murder victims apartment. There is very little that is going to change,"Unarmed man shot dead in own apartment by off-duty cop."

Or maybe the just did a search and found his weed. Funny how Liberals allow their emotions to cloud their thinking.

I know I'm not the only one thinking it but, are we sure this unhinged cop didn't murder him in cold blood? We're going to trust the word, that she gave him commands and etc, of someone who couldn't even find their own apartment? The facts do not add up, and even if it was an "accident" this cop should have their badge permanently taken away and should be jailed for manslaughter.

smear campaign, or just cops giving all information to the court they can possibly get in order to get an accurate verdict? Cmon people, lets maybe use our brains and see that the cops are doing their jobs to recreate the scene for the judge and jury since they werent there, and the lawyer is doing his job by calling practices into question, even if they are lawful and in good interest. both groups are doing their jobs well. this is not newsworthy other than to show people that the system does in fact work.

Sounds like a 4th Amendment violation to me...And that's just to issue the warrant. What next? You are a pedestrian and a motor vehicle strikes you in a cross walk when you have the walk indicator... "Your Honor, we need to search the victim's residence to help determine why that car hit him." Bull Snot, plain and simple.

For me, the most puzzling aspect is the front door just happening to be ajar. I can't rule out that the victim was stoned and forgot to lock up BUT I can't believe that he left the door ajar. Too much of a coincidence in bad luck timing.

One of the few times liberal and conservative are pretty much in agreement. That is a pretty good sign that this is not gonna end as per usual. Liberals need to stop trying to use this as wedge issue. There is no wedge here. There is no partisan here.

When a child custody case can be won or lost based on who cheated...stupid shit like “weed was found in the apartment” is important because it basically is character assasination. The police wouldn’t have mentioned it unless it had some relevance to the case (which it doesn’t) or to protect the officer who fucked up royal

Oatmeal is arrogant. It's not a meal in and of itself.

It's just the gears of the machine turning. A crime scene gets searched for evidence as part of police diligence. Hence weed gets found. It is part of report. But then police choose to release it and the various media tribes start beating their particular drum - including the lawyers. Not worth commenting till the trial.
