Dallas Cop Charged with Manslaughter in Death of Accountant


A Dallas police officer has been charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of a 26-year-old accountant. An independent investigation by the Texas Rangers determined there was enough evidence to charge Officer Amber Guyger, who shot Botham Shem Jean at his own apartment door on Friday, Sept. 7.

Jail records show Guyger was arrested on Sunday, Sept. 9., and released on $300,000 bond.

Guyger, 30, who is also known by an alias Amy Gyger, was a member of the Dallas police force for four years. She was the only female member of an “elite critical response team of about 10 officers who make high-risk arrests in the division’s crime hot spots.”

After working a 15-hour shift (including overtime) on Friday, Guyger arrived home around 7:30 p.m. (CST) at the upscale South Side Flats apartments located several blocks from police headquarters.

She reportedly parked her car on the wrong floor of the parking deck, and walked to Mr. Jean’s apartment, which was one floor up from hers and the only apartment in the hallway with a red doormat.

When her key didn’t work in the lock, Mr. Jean opened the door, startling her.

According to the Dallas Police, Guyger, who was described as “tired,” was “confronted” by Mr. Jean when he opened his door.

No words were exchanged before Guyger unholstered her service weapon and shot Jean, who was pronounced dead at a local hospital on Friday.

Guyger’s key was still in Jean’s door lock when police and paramedics arrived.

Building management said the doors can be unlocked by a key, an electronic keypad and a key fob which is uniquely programmed for each door.

When Guyger tried to turn her key, the electronic keypad flashed red — indicating she was at the wrong door. But she continued turning the key until Jean opened the door.

A neighbor several doors down from Jean’s apartment claims she heard a cop yelling “Open up! Open up!” prior to the gunshot.

Jean was an accountant who worked as a risk assessment associate for the consulting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Dallas.

He hailed from a prominent St. Lucian family of politicians and government ministers. He graduated from Harding University and he also studied accounting and mathematics at St. Mary’s College. Jean was a Young Leaders president, a member of the debate team and he sang in the choir.

He also mentored youth at the College Church of Christ in Searcy, Arkansas.

Hundreds of mourners turned out on Saturday for a “celebratory prayer vigil” at Dallas West Church of Christ on Sunday. Mourners included his mother, Allison Jean, who arrived on Saturday from her native St. Lucia.

“Botham loved God. Botham loved you. Botham loved mankind,” Allison Jean said. “Botham is singing with the angels, and I want to be in that choir. I want to see my son again.”

  1. It’s a shame that this happened. He was a such a nice looking young man and a follower of Christ who had his whole life to look forward too. I do believe they are trying to cover something up.

  4. They’re already making her into the victim. Cooking up a nice white angelic story so when she gets “time served”, desk duty, a raise and a book deal Black people won’t go crazy. Even his own mother has forgiven her because “she’s a Christian” which is the subliminal reaction white america expects the Black community to have as well. Like “sure we understand, it was a mistake” only thing is her mistake can’t and won’t bring back HIS LIFE!!!

  5. This bish looks like a strsight meth head. They waited before releasing her name, showing her face or even charging her because she was white…and they were scrambling trying to think of a fabricated lie as to why she shot this young black man. They couldn’t come up with any thing else but to say she ” thought” that she was at her own apartment. Because she is white…or course the charges will be dropped to manslaughter……and they are going to go with what works…..”She was scared for her life.” Black people not going to do shit but march, protest, take to twitter etc…and a week later shit it forgotten because you can’t miss the final episode of Power. …….and they know that….that’s why they keep killing blacks and getting away with it. Sadly, blacks don’t get that white America only UNDERSTANDS Money…..and when blacks quit spendING MONEY SO ABUNDANTLY with white people….NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE. Another black man killed by the white oppressors. I mean praying is cool and all…but I could have sworn God said MEET ME on the battlefield. Stand up and fight black people…in some type of way, form or fashion. #ColinKapernick

  6. She’s an armed police officer, so she had the upper hand, how the hell were “no words exchanged?” She could have held him at gun point, and I’m sure if she gave the man two f*cking seconds to talk, this could have been avoided! And this bumbling imbecile is walking around with a gun and a badge all day…clearly she was terrified and felt threatened by a black man to not even allow a single MOMENT of communication that could have saved his life..stupid f*cking c*nt I hope she burns in the pits of hell for what she did to this man.

  9. Manslaughter? This woman should be charged with murder. This disgrace of a police officer is a prime example why Colin Kaepernick had to kneel and paved the way for all of these new woke athletes, to speak out on obvious racism against black people. Corrupt cops and other cops who protect them, make it bad for honorable police officers.

    1. I expect a light sentence too. Maybe not 2 years. I’m thinking maybe a 10 years sentence maximum, and she’ll be out of prison after serving 5. And she’ll probably get way less if her family has money and can afford a high-powered attorney.

I’m just trying to understand when her amnesia kicked in when she forgot where her apartment was located

  19. I really feel like this was done on purpose because he either shot her down and her feelings were hurt or because he lived directly above her (she was in apt# 1378 and he was in #1478) maybe she got pissed because of the noise? Not saying if either of those turn out to be true that she was in the right, because neither of those excuses are reason to kill someone! His neighbors had nothing but good things to say about him. I’m def following this story because I really want to know what type of justice will be served, if any.

  20. I dont give a shit what she “thought” she saw or heard…bottom line is a innocent black man is dead for doing nothing more than being in HIS home, where is supposed to be safe.

And here is a prime example of trigger happy ass cops……if you see a dark figure….your first instinct is to shoot?? You knew you were not at your apartment when the damn key did not work…FIRST CLUE!! So what did you think?? Somebody broke into your place and changed the locks on you??? Fucking stupid as broad with a stupid ass lie….I hope you fry…I hope they give your dumb ass the needle!!!!

  22. Sounds like a case of rejected white girl with false sense of entitlement. Sounds like she threw herself at him previously and was rejected. White girls can’t take rejection from black men. They will either turn up dead or in jail!!! He’s too squeaky clean to plant drugs or say he was in gang. So killing him and making up this bogus story and having faith in her whiteness was her only other option.

  23. She can save those lies. Two of the man’s neighbors have already come forth and said they heard a woman banging, yelling and knocking on a door screaming “let me in.” This disputes her claim of the door was open. The fact is, it’s easy to lie when the only other witness is dead.

      1. Why should he obey the command of a tresspasser? I read yesterday that she claimed the door was ajar, she entered and saw a figure in her apartment. Why not back out and call for backup? After putting two bullets in him, she goes out and paces the hallway, not bothering to help him.

  24. YO!!!
    This was a planned hit. As an accountant he uncovered some fraudulent numbers and intended to notify the feds. The cop was moved in a month early to give the story plausibility. She has either a drug problem or a gambling problem, look at the bags under her eyes. That’s not from crying or lack of sleep for one day. Those bags are from months of unrest. She was chosen to take out the HIT.

  26. It gets more convoluted every day. So sad the young man died and can’t tell the world from his viewpoint and that was the plan. The fact that she was sent to kill him will be lost in the diversion narrative being used as her story.
