The Racism & Social Injustice Catch-All
Yeah, this case is essentially an episode of Trump: The Cop. The amount of flat out lying, victim blaming, and racial shit going on is staggering.

She shot and killed a man in his own home because he was in his own home.

It's fucking murder.

Likely scenarios:

1) They were dating, had an argument, she got mad and shot him and concocted this story to (poorly) cover her ass.

2) She was drunk/otherwise altered at the time and legitimately got confused as to where she was, then panicked and shot the guy.

Is this woman trying to remain a cop as well as remain out of jail?

...an absurd question I suppose. But no more absurd than the situation..

A lot of info is still unknown but as of now (AFAIK), no one is saying they were romantically or sexually involved with each other.

I'm thinking the second scenario is the likelier of the two.

If she lived close enough to make that mistake (if it was)....then I assume it's beyond a shadow of a doubt that they were at least acquainted.

If (IF....big if) a person really is only guilty of making a terrible horrible mistake...I don't see how that person doesn't blow their own brains out out of grief or throw themselves sobbing on the mercy of the person's family..

Folks on social media claiming to be from the same complex have suggested they were banging.

Dallas can be pretty volatile (like anywhere I suppose...I just know what I've seen). They're sitting on a powder keg if they get hinky with the "justice."

Right, but the articles I read yesterday refuted that.

We'll find out....or not.

ETA:

Stories from a local news source and the Post don't mention anything about Jean and the shooter knowing each other:

Guys if you are take rumours and conjecture off social media as fact for things all the time that’s why it will feel like there is no justice.

Not taking it as fact, just saying it's not removed as a possibility just because no news story has mentioned it yet.

That’s sound.

What I’m saying is, from everything I’ve read from supposedly accredited mainstream media sources, is pretty straight forward.

It's a very thin line between trying to put the truth out there and vigilantism or PROVOKING vigilantism or making things worse. But if the police are (purposely or otherwise) ignoring any facts that someone out there knows to be true, then yeah, they should get that info out there if they can. And then it's up to the powers that be to come to the right conclusions.

But yeah, a lot of times people just start spouting off what they think they know not caring if they REALLY know or not. But knowing full well how dangerous that can be. It's all just very very tragic and ugly..

Right. If it comes out that the Rangers ignored information they received then yeah, that’s a big problem. But if things reported to them are unfounded, they don’t have to update the media constantly about that.

Oh, I agree. It remains a possibility. And it might explain a few details.

But there's nothing yet to suggest it. We'll see, hopefully.

BUT GUYS. THIS TOTALLY WASN'T ABOUT RACE--ONE OF GUYGER'S FAMILY IS MEXICAN!!!

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/09/12/fam...media.html

Quote:"My last name is Garza. I'm a Mexican," Guyger’s brother-in-law said. "I don't care about your nationality. I don't care about the color of your skin. We all bleed red."

Garza was the idiot flashing a supposed white supremacist hand sign in that facebook pic.

If you know anyone living in Louisiana, let them know an initiative to end a Jim Crow law that allows non-unanimous juries to convict people of felonies is on the ballot this year:

https://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-lou...story.html

Quote:Over the last decade, Louisiana activists and attorneys have filed more than 20 petitions to the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the rule on behalf of inmates of the Louisiana State Penitentiary, known as Angola. Those efforts have been unsuccessful, but the law could soon be overturned as Louisiana legislators, in a rare bipartisan move, passed a bill in May calling for a referendum.

On Nov. 6, Louisiana residents will be able to vote to amend the state constitution and require future juries to return unanimous verdicts for convictions in felony cases.

Advocates for changing the law say the split-verdict rule has long ensured that Louisiana is one of the prison capitals of the world, and that the law has a disproportionate impact on minority defendants and jurors.

In a review of nearly 1,000 Louisiana felony trials from 2011 to 2016, the Advocate, a newspaper based in Baton Rouge, found that about 40% of convictions by 12-member juries had one or two holdout jurors. Black defendants in such cases were about 30% more likely to be convicted than white defendants.

Oregon is the only other state that does this.

A high school law student knows the dead can’t give consent so the police have to get warrants to seize things from them. Social media is so fucking dumb like this. That tweet makes it sound like it was Guyger who wrote the warrant.

And by the way guys it’s not the police “going there” with the marijuana.

Documents such as warrants filed with courts become public record and are therefore attainable by the media. Which is clearly the case here with the media reporting what was seized from the apartment.

They still began their investigation into his death by searching his apartment. Why is there a need to search the apartment if the apartment is already a crime scene?
home taping is killing music

Wonder if they've searched the murderer's residence. Because that could, ya know, maybe be at least equally as relevant..

Nate Boyer, the former Green Beret whose conversation with Colin Kaepernick later inspired him to adjust his protest, has spoken to the Los Angeles Time:

http://www.latimes.com/sports/nfl/la-sp-...story.html

Quote:Two years after the protests began, he is frustrated because he feels their message and intent have been misinterpreted or intentionally hijacked.

From liberals: “‘Hey, don’t you know it was a Green Beret who told Colin to protest in the first place, told him to take a knee?’” Boyer lamented: “And I’m like, ‘I didn’t tell him to do anything. I definitely didn’t tell him to protest. What I did was meet with him, make suggestions on different ways to do it after he was already protesting. And worked with him to kind of come to a middle ground.’”

And from conservatives: “[They] put all veterans in this box and say, ‘You’re offending every veteran.’ That’s also ridiculous. Or, ‘He’s protesting the anthem.’ He’s not protesting the national anthem. It has become an anthem debate, but that’s not what the protest is about. It’s about racial inequality, police brutality.”

Whether people agree or disagree, Boyer wishes the message hadn’t been intercepted.

“It’s not fair to Colin, it’s not fair to me, and it’s not fair to the cause,” he said. “And it’s not good for our country.”
