Ex-Dallas Cop Indicted for the Killing of her Neighbor

On September 6, 2018 Botham Jean, a 26-year-old native of the Caribbean island was shot and killed by his next-door neighbor, ex-cop Amber Guyger.

Guyger entered Jean’s apartment and open fired. During the interview process, Guyger claimed that she entered the apartment assuming it was hers when she encountered Jean.

On Friday, November 30, 2018, the grand jury decided to charge Guyger with the intentional malicious murder of Jean instead of manslaughter (unintentional actions which lead to death) that Guyger’s attorney was petitioning for.

Botham Jean’s mother, Allison Jean, indicates that she was pleased with the decision of the grand jury. “From the very start, I knew she murdered him, and I was not satisfied with the manslaughter charge,” Jean said.

“I want to say to the family… [there’s] still a journey ahead of us,” District Attorney Faith Johnson cautioned.

There have been many instances when crimes against Black, Hispanic, and Native American people have been heard in an American court of law. While these cases have been heard by countless jurors, justice has always been unattainable. Johnson is simply stating that despite the indictment, twelve men and women ultimately decide Guyger’s fate and could decide on her unconditional release.

“As for us, our eyes as yet failed for our vain help: in our watching we have watched for a nation that could not save us.” Lamentations 4:17

History has shown us that this nation has never taken an urgent path to correct the injustices that have afflicted our people and have held those responsible for these injustices blameless.

“Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.” Zechariah 11:5

Justice will come from the Most High. It is our duty to fear God and keep his commandments, pray for, and wait patiently on the day we finally receive justice as a people.

2 Maccabees 1:24-29
