Dallas Police Department Attempts to Demonize Murder Victim Botham Jean

Botham Jean was buried one week to the day he was murdered by Dallas police officer,
Amber Guyger.


The devastation or the trauma the Jean family has been through losing their beloved son, brother, cousin, and nephew to a heinous murder by the very person paid to protect him is unimaginable. Botham Jean followed all the rules regarding what it took to be considered a valued “American.” He had impeccable grades and a lucrative career. None of these facts were important. Hours after his family said goodbye to him forever, a Fox-news affiliate in Dallas released the following tweet:

A search warrant to search Jean’s home was executed by the Dallas Police Department. And, in a pathetic attempt to criminalize the victim, the department announced they found marijuana. It doesn’t matter.

His mother, Allison Jean, said in a press conference that the “smear” of her son is unacceptable.

Guyger had been drug-tested but the results have not been made public.

DiversityInc CEO Luke Visconti said:

“The perpetrator, especially because she has a badge and a gun, should have been tested first and that information should be public. (Because I had signatory authority for nuclear weapons, I was tested every 10 days. Cops should be tested, too.)”

What is known, although the Dallas Department has attempted to
suggest that Guyger’s story adds up, is there have been numerous inconsistencies between her story and various witness accounts of what happened that fateful night. Guyger’s position has been the door was opened and she thought Jean was a burglar. However, two women say they heard banging and shouts of “Let me in.”

They shared their contrasting details with the civil attorneys representing Jean’s family. They will now give their to investigators are “trying” to gather all the information they can to present a full picture of what happened to a grand jury.

A video from a resident in the same complex showed that when the door is opened, it automatically closes. Amber Guyger is a liar.

The truth behind Botham Jean’s murder may never be revealed. When you’re white, police protect their own. However, this insidious attempt to demonize Botham Jean will not be tolerated.
