Jury set to be selected for trying ex-cop who killed urnarmed black man

Jury selection is set to begin Friday to try the white former Dallas police officer who shot and killed her unarmed black neighbor in his apartment last year. Ex-cop Amber Guyger had killed 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean, when she accidentally entered the wrong apartment, and mistook Jean to be a burglar.

White this and Black that. Everything is always about what colour someone’s skin is. Is it possible race had nothing to do with this?

Why does his fucking race matter?

It will be interesting to hear her defense on how she mistook his apartment for her own, and why she fired first instead of trying to arrest him (if she thought he was a burglar). If she has no defense then she should be convicted.

This is a really shitty case. The only thing that made her go to jail was the fact she confused her apartment with someone elses. From what I read at the time she went to open what she thought was her door, but it was already open. She was concerned because she lived by herself so she drew her firearm. The man living there heard the noises and came to investigate at which point she fired and killed him. Honestly I feel bad for her, because she just got off her long shift and this happened, but she did kill someone, so if she goes to prison it is entirely her fault. Feels bad man.

Race part is irrelevant. That woman sounds like she should go to jail.

Race is probably irrelevant but what about sexists? A woman sees a man and overreacts, would she have shot a woman in the same situation? She definitely needs to go to jail, I call BS! How do you walk into the wrong house/apartment and not realize it's not yours?

How did she not realize it wasn't her place as soon as she stepped through the door blows my mind.

Race was not a motive in this shooting. Likely she should never have been an officer, but this white/Black bullshit misrepresents the story.

That's funny. The unarmed black man looks like a pissed off white woman.
