TX: Outrage Grows Over White Cop Who Killed Botham Jean Not Being Charged With Murder

While the sentencing for a murder charge could be greater than that of manslaughter, some caution that the charge could also make it easier for Guyger to walk away freely.

If Guyger is actually charged with murder, prosecutors will have to prove she had no reason to fire her weapon. And while that seems obvious, Guyger's team could always argue that she made a "mistake of fact."

Defense attorneys can say Guyger mistook Jean's home as her own and was defending her property when felt inclined to act in self-defense.

Special treatment for only one. You or I would be facing a charge of 2nd degree murder.

Murder requires premeditation. If this officer actually did enter a wrong apartment, as the story suggests, and shot the resident under the stated circumstances, then how was she supposed to have premeditated this?
It clearly was a UNJUSTIFIED SHOOTING, but a D.A. overcharging the officer might result in a jury acquittal if the charge can't be proved ---- and it can't be proved.
Prison time? Absolutly.

Cases like this are why laws should be written and enforced by clear headed people, not relatives of the deceased, or social justice warriors who are only out to avenge imagined wrongs.

There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him. ROBERT HEINLEIN
