Former Dallas cop gets 10 years for killing neighbor

Former Dallas cop gets 10 years for killing neighbor

Former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Wednesday. The jury came to its verdict in less than six hours, convicting Guyger, in the 2018 killing of Botham Jean. The sentence was less than the 28 years prosecutors had sought. Following the verdict, Brandt Jean, Botham’s brother, asked the judge permission to hug Guyger, offering her his forgiveness.

10 years... not exactly justice.

Imagine that the opposite happened, he shoots and kills her. We would be discussing the death penalty.

Shame on the OP for making this about race. Reported the title and voted for a more appropriate one.

"Botham Jean’s 18-year-old brother Brandt hugging Amber Guyger in court after saying he forgives her for killing his brother in an emotional victim impact statement." Breathtaking moment of the Holy Spirit at work. And from the heart of an 18 year old. Wow.

Life would have been to much in my opinion given that it was accidental. Incredibly irresponsible and an obvious display of incompetence though and it resulted in a guy losing his life. I would have gone with 35 years.

Surprised it was only 10 years for murder, but then again this is still a big sentence for a recently-made-a-former-police-officer.

10-years, I guess that's how they factor in the fact she had been working for so long. Was it 18 hours straight? All I remember for sure is that right after this shooting, her department made it impossible for anyone in the future work as long as she had.

This is why I refer to myself as non-theistic and not atheist.

"Guyger, who is white, was sentenced for shooting and killing Jean, a black man, in his apartment, which she claimed she mistook for her apartment." I hate this racist identitarian crap. Their skin color had nothing to do with anything.
