From Drug Use To Lying, Amber Guyger’s Shady Past Revealed After Guilty Verdict

Published

on

Amber Guyger has been found guilty of murder and she is facing up to 99 years in prison. The former police officer is the first Dallas cop to be convicted of murder since the 1970s. She shot and killed Botham Jean, a 26-year-old unarmed Black man, in his own home last year who was eating ice cream and watching television.

Now, Guyger’s past is being revealed and she wasn’t the fatigued angel she tried to portray on the stand.

Local Dallas reported Jobin Panicker reported on Twitter that the state wants to include her previous applicants to be a police officer in Fort Worth, Texas, which has not been decided. On the applications she was allegedly not hired because she , failed a polygraph and admitted to smoking marijuana.

The marijuana claim is particularly important because shortly after the funeral for after the 26-year-old, one of the warrants became a public record and said a small amount of marijuana was found in his home, according to Fox 5.

Jean’s mother, Allison spoke out, saying,  “The information received yesterday is, to me, worse than the call that I got on the morning of Friday, Sept. 7. To have my son smeared in such a way, I think shows that the persons who are really nasty, who are really dirty and are going to cover up for the devil, Amber Guyger.”

Furthermore, Guyger’s apartment was never searched by police despite five warrants. Was Amber Guyger smoking weed or other drugs we’ll never know. Plus, knowing that she failed a lie detector test to become a police officer, who knows how much she may have lied when she was fighting for her freedom on the stand.

Guyger also made a bizarre joke about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. being dead:

It took the jury fewer than 24 hours to return its verdict. WFAA reported on live TV that there were tears of joy for Jean’s family and tears of agony for Guyger, who was taken from the courtroom in handcuffs. It was unclear when she would be sentenced. There were reportedly cheers that broke out in the courtroom as well as the courthouse after the verdict was delivered. Several people were seen flying the national flag of St. Lucia, where Jean and his family are from.

I am extremely proud of my baby brother, Brandt, for accepting this award of ethical courage from the Center for Law Enforcement Ethics. This award presented an opportunity to implore this institution and others to encourage diverse leadership that can model inclusion and restraint. To quote Brandt, “I ask that you remember my brother (Botham), my example of ethical leadership, a young black male that was perceived as a threat by one of your own. And when you remember him, I want you to ask yourself, what are you doing to ensure there will be no other families like mine – no other little brothers that have to model ethical leadership in forgiveness of a cop whose lack of training and discipline caused them to carelessly take the life of another”. #BeLikeBo #Iammybrotherskeeper #itsonus #BothamJean #Bothamshemjean #letitrise

According to NBCDFW During his acceptance speech Tuesday, Jean that he never meant for his words to Guyger to be heard worldwide, but that he thought after the verdict and sentencing she needed to be forgiven and that, similarly, he needed to offer that forgiveness.

“I never intended for the statement that I made to the person who murdered my brother to receive such international recognition,” Jean said. “After being found guilty by a jury of her peers, sentenced under the law, Miss Guyger needed to be forgiven and I needed to be free from the burden of unforgiveness.” Read More Here
