      Dont texas have the death penalty enforced? Asking, not too sure.

    • @Insane Tester
      If she is not dealt with in prison, fingers crossed! 🤞

    • @357CLOUDY Black Feather at no point in time did she exemplify real remorse. She said the words and pushed out some crocodile tears but let’s look at her actions. She didn’t attempt CPR. She was texting with her married boyfriend while Botham Jean was gasping his last breaths, on the 911 call she worried about her job, not about the innocent man she just murdered in his own home. When facing charges she didn’t plea guilty and throw herself at the mercy of the court, she tried to get away with it. She really believed that she deserved to walk in someone’s home and gun them down and just say “oops, my bad”. So let me ask this if I ask forgiveness from God but don’t really mean it will he go by my words or my heart?

  3. I am still stumped as to why the officer didn’t go to the open front door and announce the police are here to check to make sure everything is okay.

    • @Jesse Stewart
      Or, they are doing it intentionally.

    • Because cops are pigs.

    • The officer may simply have viewed it as a golden opportunity to shoot a black person. He could claim he felt fear for his personal safety and thus get away with it — as he very well might. After all, they’ve charged him with murder, but how often do juries convict police officers? Almost never.

    A white cop charged for killing a black person, I am shocked!

    • Unfortunately white police officers don’t even know of their bias because they think racism is calling people the “N” word or burning a cross in a black person’s property. But in an effort to not say they are biased, they won’t own up to being fundamentally afraid of black people.

    • @sonyag1 quite a few have been charged the bad part is that the police are doing the investigation then in many instances you have a white prosecutor, white judge and white jurors you would think that with a preponderance of evidence the outcome would be obvious unfortunately racism is still a problem among some whites

    • the way I see it

      We just had another white cop sentenced for murder for killing a black person. Maybe the tide is turning. Enough is enough.

  5. Why not just knock on the front door wouldn’t that have been the easiest thing to do

  6. i can’t even imagine, sitting there with a young child and shot by a cop through a window and given no chance. what a waste of a intelligent and beautiful girl. the officer needs to be held accountable for his incompetence. the epitome of shoot first and ask questions later.

    • Lisa Marie : Imagine being 8 years old and then THAT? “Never trust a cop: You’re not safe in your own home: Relaxing at home is not a thing any more?” Is THAT the Last Word for that kid? . . .

      No all officers everywhere need to be held accountable for his behavior and retrained,and if they are training resistant they gotta go,I want hearts and minds for cops,not intelligent cops that are racist and concealing their racism👍

    • @Patrick Fischer
      And background checks too. KKK, NAZIS, etc should not be allowed to be police.

    From the time he shouted to the shot was barely a second. He went in with intent to shoot. Human reaction time it’s not enough to hit the safety and shoot in the 0.8 seconds of his light in the window with 0.5 seconds of visual processing and 0.5 seconds reaction plus aiming

  8. There’s something to said for our British police being unarmed.

    • @Kristi Marie The two aren’t mutually exclusive. In the UK she wouldn’t have died BECAUSE of our gun laws.

    I feel sick watching this.

  16. So you go outside you get shot, you stay home you get shot…WTF America

  17. I bet you that the judge wouldn’t hug the officer in this case …

  18. How on earth do these sissy cops, who jump at their own shadows, get jobs with the police and are allowed to use weapons!

  19. 5 dislikes?
    Something tells me, they aren’t “liberals.”

  20. When is Trump going to be charged with murder? All the Kurd’s deaths are on his shoulders.
