Now that District Attorney Faith Johnson, a Black Republican, has been voted out and retired judge John Creuzot, who said Amber Guyger should be charged with murder, was voted in by a landslide, the Dallas Police Association appears to be working at a frantic pace to protect the 30-year-old officer.

The president of The Dallas Police Association is using Guyger as an example of police being overworked and tired.

Dallas News reported, “The department recently was criticized for the long hours cops work after off-duty Officer Amber Guyger fatally shot 26-year-old Botham Jean inside his own apartment. Guyger was in full uniform and reportedly had just gotten off a 15-hour shift.

She told investigators she went to the wrong floor and tried to get into Jean’s apartment believing it was her own. The internal review of work hour policies in the Police Department began almost a year before the September shooting.”

Michael Mata, president of the Dallas Police Association, says that fatigue issues were a problem before the Jean shooting.

“This was being looked at way before the Guyger shooting.” He continued,  “It all comes down to really we don’t have enough officers.”

No, it comes down to not having a culture of corruption that defends cops even if someone is gunned down in their home. Clearly, fatigue will be the excuse if Guyger is indicted.

Last week, District Attorney-elect Creuzot told NBC in Dallas, “I don’t know any police reports. I don’t know any forensic reports, but based on what I have seen, manslaughter is an inappropriate charge, based on the circumstances as I understand them.

Once I get in there and I get everything in front of me and it appears the most appropriate charge is murder, then that’s the charge we will go forward with.” He also said, “anything less than murder deviates from Dallas County precedent.”

Amber Guyger shot and killed Botham Jean on September 6. Three days later, she was in jail for around an hour, charged with manslaughter and has been free on the streets ever since.

    • So you telling that after working 15 hours your coherent enough to drive home, not take the wrong exit or anything, but managed to get to her apartment not only to go up to the third floor and use her key, I’m guessing it works all the units, but she did say she tried to get in. 🤔🤔 I call BS on her whole story!

    Every one is focus on the wrong thing. We have a young black man murdered by this devil cop.Makes no difference why she did it. She did and her ass need to be in jail.

  2. It’s obvious Dallas Police were overworked and fatigued trying to come up with another excuse when they came up with this one. She’s guilty of murder, God knows it, She Knows it and You all know it or you wouldn’t be trying so hard to come up with all the stupid reasons she murdered someone. I haven’t heard, The Donut Monster made her do it yet.

    Thank God for this new DA. I said after the shooting get rid of Johnson & that other one Hall because how can you defend a cop that clearly have a problem with race from her social media Pinterest page bigger than that had a black cop did this OMG he would be killed because he enter a home .

  4. NO, NO, NO.The police department should also be investigated for potential corruption in how they handled this investigation, and for possible interference in a lawful investigation.

    Yet, she wasn’t too tired to drive?? So, she was alert enough to drive, but not so tired that she had the awareness to pull her gun on what she thought was an intruder in her home? Was she tired and overworked or not?

    bulshit white people always come up with some type of excuse when they get ready to do let’s keep it real she murdered that guy and she needs to go to jail

  7. Mrs. Wms on said:

    This is a travesty. A young Black man murdered in his own home for no reason. The lying police officer that murdered him needs to be in jail for murder.

  8. “Drug deal gone bad?” – Was she was there to get drugs and it went bad??? The only person that it went bad for was Botham Jean who died because of Ms Amber and she’s walking around free as a bird. It’s time for her to pay for being tired, let’s just say 20 to life and see if she can get any rest.

    • Butter Pecan on said:

      Interesting, but your missing one big piece of the puzzle, what was her motive for committing murder? Please don’t insult yourself by saying because he was black

      • Mac Daddy on said:

        Not likely, he was likely sleeping with her. Black men do have a weakness for those white women, that much we know

      • Char Char Binks on said:

        They don’t usually insult themselves by calling themselves “black”. They use a different word.

    …i dont care what u ppl think he was..orcwhst u assume..u dont walk into a man’s home and kill him..if it w e e an accident..then accidently go do time….crazy ass…she is full of it….

  10. Butter Pecan is a hatemonger who pops up out of the sewer to plant lies on this site, and hopes the lies will spread, discredit, and shame the victim. You wonder how people can live day to day being that miserable, w/o realizing something’s wrong with them, and seeking help. Mental illness is running rapid out there.

    I still maintain this was a drug deal gone bad. We know that Botham was a small time neighborhood dealer) I noticed Butter Pecan said WE KNOW that Botham was a drug dealer. Do WE, ‘we’ meaning any of you others, cause Idk that, know that he was a drug dealer. Eventhough that wouls be irrelevant. She barged into his home and killed him!!! Many people work long shifts like everyday and they don’t typically go around shooting people, justifiably!!! Doctors especially intern, work 20 and 30 hours straight, sometimes. There is always an excuse for whites. That is ALWAYs the frist place they go. They were making excuses for her, the perp and digging up negative things about him, the innocent victim. CMason, you are soooo correct!!!

  12. Take her to jail on said:

    Can’t believe this stuff is still going on it will never stop that lady needs to go to jail she knows what she was doing I work 16 hours sometimes pregnant and all … them hours don’t matter …. these white cops need to stop ✋🏾

  13. This is bullcrap. Well let’s see the reports on every other cop that worked long hours. I haven’t heard of any other cop that worked in her department or force do some crap like that. Shame. If it was a black cop that did some mess like that he/she would be under the jail. Sad our judicial system is messed up.

    • BGR, Esq. on said:

      “Drug deal gone bad?” I am confused as to how that gives credibility to the Police Officer? This statement would suggest she was a “buyer” and she is paid and sworn to uphold the law. So as a “buyer” and a Police Officer she was justified in killing him? However, that would mean she was breaking the law by purchasing illegal drugs…. hmm okay.
      Nothing about your statement makes any sense – which is why I am guessing you wrote it. But “We” don’t know anything for sure and “We” should wait for all the facts to come out.

    • Christina on said:

      And you know this because? He had a rap sheet? BTW all of the people who are in the weed business are “small time dealers”? Since having some weed seems to make you a dealer now.

  14. NURSES WORK 12HR SHIFTS WHICH SOMMETIMES TURN INTO 14 PLUS HOURS. ALOTOF PEOPLE WORK MORE THAN ONE JOB IN A DAY WORKING 8 HOURS ON 1 JOB AND UP TO 8 ON THE NEXT JOB. STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR HER. SHE SHOT AND KILLED THAT MAN. LOCK HER UP. MURDERED.

    • U KNOW U LIVE IN YO MAMA’S BASEMENT AND U DON’T HAVE A CAR. GET OVER YOURSELF. IDIOT. LOL. SHE SHOULD HAVE COME TO UR HOUSE. OH, YO MAMA’S HOUSE. LOL…

    • Doctors and nurses work 15 plus hours all the time but they do not get off work and go to the wrong house and kill people. You on the other hand would get in the wrong car because you are stupid.

    • Christina on said:

      But she didn’t get into the wrong car. She didn’t go to the wrong building. She went to the wrong door on the wrong floor, but somehow she made it home. Nothing in her memory told her that she didn’t have a red doormat?

  15. White, you’re mentally ill or in this case, “over worked”, black, you’re a thug, middle eastern decent, a terrorist!! Boy, these goddamn people!! Peice of work!
