BREAKING: In stunning moment, Botham Jean's brother embraces Amber Guyger after her sentencing for his brother's murder. "I don't even want you to go to jail. I want the best for you, because I know that's exactly what Botham would want."
HE HAS A NAME: 26 year old Botham Shem Jean was killed by a Dallas police officer who mistakingly thought his apartment was hers’. A native of St. Lucia, and a graduate of Harding University, a Christian school in Arkansas, his friends called him “Bo.” May he rest in peace.
‘How can we continue to lose the lives of unarmed Black men in the United State of America at the hands of white police officers?’ — speaking out on Botham Jean
Joshua Brown’s selflessness and courage brought some justice for his neighbor Botham Jean. We grieve again learning of Joshua’s murder. I pray for his family, his community, and all those impacted by this tragedy. We demand answers.
How Botham Jean’s brother chooses to grieve is his business. He’s entitled to that. But this judge choosing to hug this woman is unacceptable. Keep in mind this convicted murderer is the same one who laughed about Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination, and killing ppl on sight.
