As a young black man in America, Botham Jean scrupulously avoided even the most routine encounters with police, his mother Allison told me. Then an off-duty police officer, who says she mistook him for a burglar, shot and killed him in his own home.

Dear , This letter was fwd to your office with an additional note months ago. This family deserves answers. A cop who was fired for a hate crime was rehired by Barstow PD and led a team of cops who fired 24 rounds into a car of unarmed civilians.

you said Guyger only lived in the apartment a few weeks. She’s been there since July 2018. That is a few months.

consider looking deeper into Guyger’s previous shooting of an unarmed person of color. He survived. He can be questioned about the incident. He initially claimed she lied about him “grabbing her taser” but eventually submitted to a plea. Maybe investigate this.

everyone wants to know what happened in this case but parroting law enforcement sources sympathetic to Guyger without thoroughly challenging their claims is dishonest and unethical.

You reported casings found near the door corroborated Guyger’s story she shot from the door. A bullet hole was found near the top right corner of the back wall. This information is publicly available. It would have been impossible to strike this spot standing at the door.

in this article you reported that residents have reported people have walked into their homes before without reporting the multitude of residents who confirmed those doors never are ajar because they are sure slam fire doors.

you have failed to challenge your “anonymous sources” about the door swinging open “when she put pressure on the door inserting her key”. How? The does don’t swing open— they slam shut. A key will never swing it open even if it was already mysteriously ajar.

your article calls in to question the credibility of independent corroborated witnesses as if they only spoke with my office when they in fact gave sworn affidavits to the DA.

Dallas police officers are working overtime to leak information to the media they believe supports ’s story & the media is readily reporting it despite much of it being demonstrably false.

The trial for the cop that shot in the back because he suspected him of stealing his own car is underway. This video was just released. Lyndo complies to every command until he steps on the back of his neck. Then he stands up and put his hands in the air. He’s shot 2x

is sitting alone in the hallway (sequestered) preparing to testify against the man that shot him twice in the back with his hands up for suspicion of stealing his own car. He was so clean he was mistaken for his own lawyer. Crowley Court CDC5 come join him.

Mesquite cop Derick Wiley shot Lyndo Jones in the back twice while he had his hands up and begged please don’t shoot me. He suspected him of burglarizing HIS OWN CAR! The catch is Lyndo survived! He will testify in court today any need your support. Frank Crowley Court House.

I just learned the Dallas 9 will spend another night in jail for peacefully protesting brutality. Tues Officer Wiley will be tried for shooting an unarmed man 2x he wrongfully suspected of burglarizing his own car. D-9 have already spent more time in jail then he ever has.

The Appeal Sep 17
.: “[Botham Jean] was not only never convicted of a crime, he was never even accused of a crime, never arrested. ... It took a white Dallas police officer to break into his home and shoot him to death for him to become painted as a criminal.”
