Dallas cop case--family, lawyers preempted usual attack on black male victim's character

* He was a long-time Christian and church member. He even attended a Christian college.

* He had a good position with a noted firm.

* His family is very prominent in their country.

* He was well-known for helping his neighbors.

This background, presented immediately, makes it difficult to claim he was a thug, a druggie, or the other smears usually given to black male victims of police shootings.

Looks like so far the 'best' excuses for the shooting are that he was noisy in his own appartment and that he didn't obey a cop's orders

2. None of this should matter in this context

I’m having so many problems with the narrative that Dallas Morning News and other local news outlets are trying to establish.

The key point is that he was in his apartment.

At this point, Amber Guyger, is no longer a cop. She is an armed home invader. The assertion that she fired because he failed to obey verbal commands is insane.

She is in his apartment.

Neighbors have testified that they heard banging on a door then gun shots.

This most likely means that the door wasn’t open and was opened by Jean.

Police can only use the “didn’t respond to verbal commands” if they are acting as police.

Something is really, really wrong with Amber Guyger’s story.

3. If he was white none of that would matter

 

Why does a resume have to be presented for a victim?

4. It's a shame that he has to be a perfect person to be considered sympathetic

Can't just be an ordinary guy having a beer in his own house/ has to be a saint. (I know this is not the point of your post. Yes, the lawyers and family represented him well to get all of this out there).

5. Only Thing Saving Botham Jean

The only thing that is saving Botham Jean is the fact that he was in his own apartment. If this had happened in the street things would have been very different. None of the things mentioned would have mattered. People on the right would have found things to claim about this guy.

6. A young black man pretty much needs to be an actual choir boy

Not to immediately be presumed guilty and deserving of death.
