We called this one correctly Saturday morning.
We doubled down when the bogus arrest affidavit was released Tuesday morning.
We filleted calls that "maybe she was telling the truth" Wednesday morning.
With the last bit now, this makes this case a grand-slam slam-dunk.
|30 y.o., 5'3", with a badge, a gun, and an attitude.|
Absolutely zero surprise on this, and huge kudos to commenter Nemo for the DailyMail story link:
1) Officer Amber Guyger's bullshit story was that the vicitm's door was "ajar" at 10PM when she entered.
Oops. The UK DailyMail has a video that shows that all the doors in the complex are on automatic closers, and if let go they automatically close and lock.
the first 55 seconds are all that matter.
So that would be perjury for Officer Guyger. And she's now a documented liar.
Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus is the legal guideline on such things.
2) The apartment numbers are lit up by blazing white lights, in letters 2" high, right next to every door in the complex.
And, exactly as described by witness, there was a big red doormat outside Not-Her-Door that should have been a major clue, had this been "just a terrible accident".
|Officer Killshot's door|
|Dead victim Jean's door, with red doormat. Flowers are recent additions, obviously.|
But wait! There's more!
With no signs of forced entry, and the "it was ajar" now pure fantasy bullshit, the only way the door opened, was that, exactly as neighbors related, Killshot Guyger pounded on the door, and when Dead guy victim Jean opened it, she drew and shot him.The neighbor, who lives two doors down from cop Amber Guyger, 30, but asked not to be named, said he did not believe the petite blonde would have been able to force her way in.Pointing to his own heavy metal door, the same as both Jean's and Guyger’s, he said: ‘These are fire doors. You can’t really leave it open.‘The key situation too – you can’t get into any place, you can’t. It’s impossible. You can put it in but you can’t open it.‘You can put it into somebody else’s key hole but you can’t open anything. This key isn’t programmed for my door – if I put it in, nothing happens apart from this red light.’
Because, she claims, she "thought he was a burglar".
And now for the closer:
DailyMail.com can also reveal that Guyger had made noise complaints about Jean, 26, to the building management in the days before his death.Her neighbor, a Hispanic man in his mid-20s, said she had been cross about him making noise early in the mornings.He said: ‘She filed a noise complaint earlier on in the day which said that he had been making noise before she leaves for her shift.’The family lawyer Merritt confirmed his account in an interview with CNN, telling the channel: ‘The only connection we have been able to make is that she was his immediate downstairs neighbor.‘And there were noise complaints from the immediate downstairs neighbors about whoever was upstairs, and that would have been Botham.‘In fact, there were noise complaints that very day about upstairs activity in Botham’s apartment. Botham received a phone call about noise coming from his apartment from the downstairs neighbor.’
Motive. Means. Opportunity.
Not a terrible mistake.
Not some guy she had no connection to.
But rather, the guy upstairs pissing her off and ruining her beauty sleep.
Multiple (unresolved) complaints.
Settling an ongoing grudge, because big badge and big gun.
And it seems she "neglected to mention" that ongoing little detail of life, the universe, and everything during her after-incident Come-to-Jesus debriefing. Which shows again, consciousness of guilt, intent to deceive, and deliberate attempt to hide an obvious motive, and a hitherto unknown connection to the guy she murdered. Prosecutors love that shit. Even when it's a cop. Juries too.
In legalese, it's called mens rea: literally "guilty mind".
It means when you do things crooks do, like lie about what happened, you've just put your head into the noose of being a crook.
She was Officer Respect Mah Authoritay, he wouldn't keep it down to suit her changing shifts, so after this shift, she went to his door, beat on it until he opened it, brief words are exchanged, and she draws her gun and kills him.
Like she did.
And BTW, the apartments are right next door to DPD HQ. So her drive home was apparently about 60 seconds.
Murder, first degree: pre-meditated, with malice aforethought.
Stick a fork in her.
If Texas needs someone to put the IV in when she gets the needle, I'll pay for my own airfare, roundtrip.
This lying bitch is a cold-blooded killer.
And the DailyMail is HQ'ed in flippin' London, England, and they pulled this together in a day or two, but the Texas Rangers, right there in Texas, couldn't figure any of this out before they recommended a bullshit manslaughter charge???
Somebody at the Rangers needs firing, or Chuck Norris' boot roundhouse kicked up their ass.
Or, just for the novelty, discipline them for incompetence, and demote them.
Actually prosecuting them for accomplice after the fact would be nice, but they probably need to be dragged back to reality kicking and screaming, so I suppose small steps are indicated. Six months patrolling BFTexas back roads, on graveyard shift for six months, after a month home without pay, would be an excellent start.
This CNN video from Tuesday
shows a brief clip of Guyger in uniform on her cell phone after the shooting. The one she didn't use to call for back-up when she supposedly found her door "ajar", with a possible burglar inside, at her apartment (50 yards from the Dallas PD police station she had just left, and from which she could have expected 5-10 cars for back-up in about 2 minutes, had she called 911, like she would have done if on duty.) I had assumed from pictures that the 4th floor corridor was fully enclosed, but obviously, it's open to the ground. Possibly not just at the point where she was filmed.
So my additional question is:
We're supposed to believe she couldn't tell the difference between being on the middle (3rd) floor, where she wasn't, and being on the uppermost (4th) floor, where she was, from her car to the door in question, when it sits another 10' higher above the ground??
Who, besides Stevie Wonder, can't tell the difference between the middle floor and the top floor in a 4-floor apartment building?
I'm betting anyone who went to the South Place apartments, and filmed two videos,
1) one of the route she would normally take, and
2) one of the route she took that night, from the point of driving in and parking on the wrong floor, and from there to the victim's door
it will show pretty conclusively that her claiming to have "made a mistake" would require her to be either catatonic, or blind. Which her subsequent marksmanship that night would tend to belie.
Or else, lying her ass off to cover a squabble with an upstairs neighbor that turned into a murder. Which she's already been caught lying about in multiple ways, from the moment it happened.
