Guyger conviction prevents cops from safely doing their job

Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was convicted of murder today after shooting her neighbor Botham Shem Jean in his apartment. Guyger’s defense rested on the claim that she mistakenly entered the wrong apartment, believing it was her own, and found Jean who she believed was a burglar who was eating ice cream on his couch. Additionally, marijuana was found in his apartment, which is known to make suspects aggressive in behavior.

The conviction sent shock-waves through the law enforcement community today, with many concerned that officers will no longer be able to safely do their job now that there is potential for accountability in their actions.

“Our officers are already having to endure the fact that they could be charged for their actions, however with this conviction, they’re even more worried about being able to get home to their families each night after shooting someone who likely did something at some point to deserve it,” states Altruria Police Chief John Statten. “This conviction continues to allow the public to have a poor perception of the heroic things we do as law enforcement on a day to day basis. Blue lives matter, but apparently they don’t matter today, according to this jury’s verdict.”

Local resident Chris Holden, a thin blue line supporter, expressed dismay at the outcome as well. “Police are just doing their jobs, and these snowflakes are steadily making it harder for them to do so. We need to get back to the good old days where people didn’t step out of line and knew their place, then we wouldn’t have this problem.”

Guyger is currently awaiting the sentencing phase of her trial, where it is largely expected that she will get the legal equivalent of a slap on the wrist.

    A complete biases piece of writing. She murdered a man in his own home. A place where she has no legal authority or claim too. She deserves to be in prison

    Link one study of the violent tendencies of pot users. I’ll wait. Plus she wasn’t doing her job. Her job dictates waiting for backup before entering if she was on the job.

    No one is stopping the police from doing their job but let it be known that from now on you will be held accountable for your actions. No more ” It was a terrible accident”, illegal lawfull shootings. Civilians are held accountable for stray bullets and law enforcement should know more about where their bullets may end up after leaving their firearm. Let’s hope she gets a just sentence for her actions .

    She said it was a mistake but we can read daily where some one was killed by mistake and he/she will be living the rest of their life’s behind bars because of a 2 second mistake. She’s not above the law. She might think she’s a sovereign citizen but she’s not

    What the f***’s the cops are not above the law this is bullship they should always be held accountable for their actions. As matter of fact they should be held at a higher standard and be punished even harder if they commit a crime

    Since when is it a cops duty to illegally enter a home and shoot the residence, i hope a cop forgets their address and enters your home.

    This is insane. Police officers don’t have the job of barging into random peoples’ houses and opening fire. And the “marijuana makes people violent” quote….not the effect I’ve seem!

    You’re kidding right? Please point out in a cop’s job description that allows an off duty officer to trespass on private property and murder the legal occupant. Also cite the Texas penal code that allows anyone, including police officers, the right to trespass into private property and shoot the legal occupant dead.

    I’ll wait.

    You are not smart if you think cops need to be able to go into the wrong apartment and shoot innocent unarmed people in order to do their jobs. I remember when the field of journalism was respected. Now any idiot with an opinion can be a “journalust.” Shame on you for peddling fallacy and idiocy.

    This bitch was sentenced to 10 years in TDC and will be eligible for parole in 5 years with a Possibility of being hired by another Police Department since her certification wasn’t pulled.
    To the Blue Line Supporter interviewed in the story I say this to you: Fuck You, this is America bitch, A Country where we have FREEDOM, a country where “Knowing your place” means you are speaking out against injustice and against corruption and dirty Gestapo cops without fear of retaliation

      This is ripped off from a satire site, so no one was interviewed at all!l probably. They would be stupid for actually trying to defend clear murder on an article. This is a click bait article, nothin more.
