It’s been a long time since we’ve talked about a trial. I started this as a post a comment in the Open Forum post because I’m exhausted. I’ve been watching videos of the Amber Guyger trial on Youtube. Because I am really trying to be productive regarding house cleaning, I decided that I should work in the (filthy) kitchen while watching most of them. My kitchen is much cleaner… but still has a lot left to do. A lot.
While I had some downtime, I’ve had time to look into the Amber Guyger trial. This was sparked by the fact that a young man who testified in that trial, Joshua Brown, was murdered a mere two days after Amber Guyger was convicted.
Short Recap Of The Amber Guyger Case
Amber Guyger, a Dallas police officer, murdered the guy in the apartment below her, Bothan Jean, while he was eating ice cream and watching TV in his own living room at 10 PM at night. She was found guilty and sentenced by a jury for a mere TEN YEARS. The prosecution asked for 28 and the maximum was 99.
It was a weird trial. The brother of the murder victim asked for leniency and says he wishes she didn’t even have to go to jail. He asks the judge for permission give the murderer a hug. After the trial was over, the judge gave the murderer a hug and a Bible. Then the witness that gave crucial evidence gets murdered????
Are You Watching This Insanity In Dallas?
So today I fell down the rabbit hole of watching trial videos The part of me that wanted to get something productive done today decided that I should work in the kitchen because I can watch the videos in there. It’s hard to watch the prosecution’s star witness Joshua Brown testify. He was murdered in the parking lot of his apartment parking lot two days after the verdict.
It’s time to make some soup. Also, there are idiot teenagers twerking and banging on shit outside of my house. Because, somehow, right outside my house is where everything goes down, Banjo keeps trying to tell them to move alone and it’s distracting. So I am going to cut this short. Besides, I want to hear what my trial watchers have to say about this. I feel like I have covered mass protests of the DPD here before. But, I’m having trouble finding it with all the distractions.
Plus, I mostly want to know if any of you guys are following the murders of Bothan Jean and Joshua Brown and/or the Amber Guyger Trial . I am dying to hear your thoughts. I’ll add more in comments once things calm down.
