  1. She knew she was done when she did it.

    Wow I actually didn’t expect justice to be served. Not bad Texas.

    • @IRenegaddEEEE, AAAHAHAHAHAHA !!! Justice ? This lady is going to serve 5 years and be released for good behavior, write a book, have a lifetime movie, and retire. This woman makes me want to vomit and poop.

    • IRenegadEEEEE
      Same here… I didn’t expect it…
      Bravo Texas! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    • IRenegadEEEEE. Yes justice but only Cus it’s a woman and not a man. I bet a man would have been acquitted.

    • Unless she gets life in prison it won’t be justice.

    • @Cary Spay What do u think would happen if he had a concealed carry permit, accidentally walked into her apartment and shot her ? And you unfortunately have to factor in that he is black.

  3. No excuse for this woman walking into somebody else home and murdering them and then try to scream self-defense. If she does this to somebody who lives in same apartment complex imagine what she would do to somebody on the streets. Lock her up for life.

      agree

    • Procharged 100th Anniversary Dodge Charger RT …. I know…. that’s why I never claimed she could use it……………………..the castle doctrine never came out of my mouth…….. are you feeling okay?

      @Buttbanging Trannyliberal
      It was an accident I would have been charged for if I replicated the same trespassing and shooting. Being tired is no excuse. Going to wrong place is no excuse. If you trespass and fire a weapon on someone, you deserve to be in jail.

  4. Let’s wait to see what her sentence is before we claim justice being served.

    • Apparently you’ve never heard of football hooliganism. It’s prominent in Europe with soccer fans. Look it up. You’ll find plenty of riots. Whites also rioted in Oakland when the Raiders lost the super bowl to Tampa bay. Enter that into google as well. These stories aren’t hard to find. Pick your news site. I’m curious to know if you have the ability to conduct basic research.

    • Oh yeah. Whites also started a riot, killed somebody with a car and injured several of their own people over the government removing a statue from government property.

      @LAVAR BALL exactly right

    • @Popeye Doyle are you going to do a mass shooting because you’re a disaffected white dude ?

  5. I don’t care how tired you are, using deadly force in that situation was wrong.

  6. Leroy Worsley | October 1, 2019 at 3:52 PM | Reply

    Had She tried to perform CPR & First aid, She would have received Manslaughter. Maybe.

  7. One lesson to learn, make sure you are where you’re supposed to be. Second, cop or no cop. If the door is unlocked when it should be…call the police. She should have known this.

    Use of excessive force has become a common practice from police for far too long.

    President sfb’s is contributing to this discourse of shoot first and ask questions later nonsense.

  8. Great news for the victims family. I hope she rots in jail.

    • White America will find a way to make it comfortable for her and short.

    • @Michael Kahr sad to say but you are probably right on the money.
      She should get life and no parole but we no that wont happen.

    • @Buddy Blair ‘fraid yes. Racism is deeply ingrained in society and a problem still waiting for a solution. The world has bigger problems like climate change to overcome, so it would behoove us to solve that sh**ty problem soon. A problem that constantly keeps us embroiled in wars and hate.

    • @Buddy Blair Maybe Guyger should be celled with cop Mohammed Noor (remember that shooting?) & serve 12.5 yrs.

    • From the look of your avatar it looks like you’re already rotting, yourself.

  9. She was the intruder in Jeans apartment…. No justified shooting.. Her training told her to shoot first because it is better to judge by 12 than carried by 6… That is a police motto, I have heard it many times by police. In this case, being judge by 12 will cost her, her freedom.. Guilty… The fear for my life BS didn’t work this time.

    • Actually, her training was to retreat to a defensive position and call for backup. This is why she got convicted of murder. She revealed during the trial that she heard someone, then peeked into the apt, before entering. She then admitted that her training was to retreat and call for backup, but that she couldn’t think of anything but going in. So she had the opportunity to avoid even entering the apt and likely would have realized she was in the wrong place upon retreating.

    • @rantanamo interesting, , i just know 2 lives could of been better off

    • Agreed Judge by 12 and 9 of them were those police abuse the most!!!
      The Irony is beautiful😉

    Why is your first instinct is to shoot? I guess that is how cops are trained.

  11. Hopefully this will lead too more indictments of police officers

    • Christopher Morningstar | October 2, 2019 at 11:08 AM | Reply

      o z .. what about Micheal Brown? Unless a cigarette is a reason to die? Most police shootings are justified, eh? I’m asking because that’s a false statement

    • @Christopher Morningstar I don’t care why you’re asking, it’s not a false statement. It’s a false statement only to you SJWs because you SJWs don’t know WTF you’re talking about. Michael Brown wasn’t snot because of a cigarette, he was shot because he was attacking a cop. Anyone who read the autopsy report can tell you that.

  12. They could have convicted her for the lesser charge, however, the jury chose to send Dallas PD a message for the special treatment Guyger received.

  13. “I feared for my life” the most abused statement….. in the history of this country!! 😪
    I hope your souls will rest in peace, Botham!!

      Miss Amazon if you fear for your life, QUIT!!!! your all cowards…. and lyers, no integrity, no dignity, no leadership, what ever happened to medium, Maximum, and deadly force!!!!! go straight to
      deadly force… she got what she deserved… and I was a cop…. there you go….

    • DOUBLE FOLD COMING | October 2, 2019 at 9:50 AM | Reply

      Bo feared for his life. THAT’S HIS APARTMENT

  14. Walk into someone’s home by accident. You’re not competent to own a gun. Handling guns require people who aren’t flighty + confused.

    • My Serendipitous Mind | October 1, 2019 at 7:48 PM | Reply

      👏👏👏👏 Everyone who has a gun THINKS they know what they’re doing; that doesn’t mean they’re right. I just argued with some low lives who said they don’t need training to operate an AR-15 because “they’re so easy to use”.

    • @My Serendipitous Mind everyone who has a gun should have been taught how to use one. All my children went to classes to learn how correctly before I’d let them actually go hunting. Even thou they learned from their dad. We still had them do it. All 6.

    • A. Stri i rather have the right to own a gun while bad guys with guns exist, than to have my gun rights taken away and left defenseless as the bad guys still have their guns they get illegally. Taking away guns only leave innocent defenseless, not the bad guys

    • David-Alexandre Laurent | October 2, 2019 at 11:21 AM | Reply

      @Derek Fisher Funny i would feel defenseless in your country because anybody can have a gun. Just look how it works in other countries and you will see how twisted your second amendment is.

    • David-Alexandre Laurent and how does it work in other countries?? You mean the knife attacks in the UK? Why havent they banned knives yet? It seems ppl are bum rushing to illegally migrate into America so it cant be that bad lol.
      How do you plan to defend yourself if an intruder comes into your home with a gun? You’re gonna talk it out? Lol

    Now let’s see what she does behind those bars when she fears for her life.

    • i love and respect law enorcement and the woman and men in service, this was terrible, bad for the community and trust

    • Tawanda Delivered Dinkins | October 2, 2019 at 9:06 AM | Reply

      @April I agree… I’ve been locked up with a woman who stood by while her husband tortured her kids leaving one serverly handicapped and no one even risked being mean to her!

    • @Tawanda Delivered DinkinsI don’t doubt it.

  16. They tried so hard to make him the villain. I’m so glad she didn’t get away with that. In the meantime, I’m a blubbering fool right now. Justice for Jean. ❤

    • President of the Virgin Islands | October 1, 2019 at 6:18 PM | Reply

      Yea they even planted weed in his apartment to assassinate his character.

    • @President of the Virgin Islands I’m not saying they didnt but… The neighbor across from him testified that they both smoked weed and that they were both visited by management for some other reason and that they talked about how the weed was probably the real reason for the visit.

    • Yeah, they tried to make him look threatening, but what else is the defense atty going to do? Surely, he wouldn’t say he was just offering him some ice cream (even though he might have done that had he lived).

    • Nobody tried to make Botham Jean a villian. This is the kind of rhetoric that gets people worked up and fills the streets with violence when a verdict falls short of expectations. In this case they didn’t but you are indeed a fool. That is clear

  17. My sincere condolences to the family of Botham Jean.

  18. Eleanore K. Leslie | October 1, 2019 at 4:56 PM | Reply

    That would have been my vote. She walked into an apartment she didn’t realize wasn’t hers? Please.

  19. Shawn Beasley | October 1, 2019 at 5:49 PM | Reply

    He was shot in his castle while he was eating ice cream in his shorts “Castle Doctorine”…Good Job Texas serving justice! I’m surprised but 😊 happy!

  20. Hopefully she’ll get more than the minimum of five years.
