Could be random, could be bad luck, could be the people he procured his herb from were less than stellar citizens.
And the early verdict, "Killed in a drug deal." In this exchange, looks like he was the seller and not the buyer.

I couldn't get Scott's link to WFAA to work (404 Error), but here is the Dallas Asst Police Chief giving a press report about the drug deal-gone-bad.

https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2019/10/0 ... t-vpx.ktvt

Includes names of the 3x subjects who came from Louisiana to buy drugs from Brown; both sides shooting each other; drug buyer stealing Brown's backpack & gun after shooting him; 1 of the 3 drug buyers in hospital with GSW; & amounts/types of drugs & cash found in Brown's apartment.
New WFAA link:

That's a really long way to go to buy drugs. From what WFAA says the 3 drove over 300 miles from Louisiana to steal drugs from Brown.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

October 6:
Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said: 'There are no suspects or motives at this time. We are committed to solving this case’
Joshua Brown murder: 2 arrested in death of witness in Amber Guyger trial:

October 8-9:
Green took Brown's backpack and the gun used to shoot Jacquerious Mitchell and the three suspects fled the scene, Moore said. The suspects dropped Jacquerious Mitchell off at a hospital, the assistant police chief said.
There were obvious suspects, including Morris who Brown was set to testify against at another murder trial..and Mitchell from the shootout was in the hospital Oct 6.

Renee Hall didn't have to give away anything, but should have said something like "we are vigorously pursuing every lead and will not stop until this case is solved"

The chief publicly claiming "there are no suspects" when EVERYONE can think of obvious suspects... fueled this fire like nothing else. To say poor choice of words would be a massive understatement.

Assassinated lawyer says.

Refuses to rule out police involvement!

False flag?
Brown had no criminal history, nothing stolen, "no suspects or motives"... beyond the obvious. Once again Dallas makes international news. No matter what anyone says, truthfully DPD's reputation is taking a dramatic turn for the worse here. Whoever murdered Brown deserves a lot more than 10 years.

Botham Jean's neighbor, a key witness in Amber Guyger trial, shot to death in Dallas

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2 ... ect-loose/
Even if that's not connected.... That some BAD timing.
Dallas has a 2019 homicide rate of more than 9.37 victims per 100,000 residents.

Odds look fairly low of it occurring randomly...

They are in the sentencing phases and the DA has used a couple of her social media posts that make her look like she was looking to kill. The two that caught my attention were memes talking about shooting to kill. Makes me think about how social media has changed the world. Best be mindful of what you say out on the interweb. You just never know how it may come back at you one day. She probably thought nothing of posting the memes when she did it. Now it is being used against her to establish a state of mind. She was trying to delete all of them just after the shooting.

https://newsone.com/3887986/amber-guyge ... dia-posts/
Combine those posts with her testimony about how she was shooting to kill and sentencing is looking bad for her.

In some parts of the world law enforcement credentials are a license to kill. All of this evidence supports the argument that Amber thought she had a license to kill. Only now is she learning she didn't.

What an embarrassment. At the very least DPD needs to review their hiring procedures.

I think she made a fatal error during her testimony. The prosecutor asked her if, when she fired at the victim, did she intend to kill him....and she answered unequivocally, "yes". He immediately repeated the question, as if he couldn’t believe her affirmative answer, and the second time, she answered, "yes, to stop the threat" .... implying that she did intend to kill him to stop the threat. BAD answer. She must have been very flustered on the witness stand.

The answer that would have done less damage, would have been to answer the FIRST time, "no, I did not intend to kill him. I intended to stop the threat"; and repeat that answer if asked it again. I was really surprised when she answered the way she did.

But, it seemed likely that she would be convicted, and probably rightly so....
Agree completely. I think its a point that is vital for all of us to have a very firm understanding of.

I have caught bits and pieces of the trial. Mainly reporting on the AM radio. Why did the jury not get to hear the Texas Ranger say she acted reasonably? I haven't seen an explanation why that statement was not in front of the jury.
I, too, have only heard bits and pieces. But I did hear that quote from the Texas Ranger. IIRC, he not only said that she acted reasonably, but also that no crime was committed (in his opinion).

Don't know why the judge did not allow it, but also not sure why the Ranger thinks that would not be a crime of some kind, to kill someone minding their own business in their own home by someone else who had no reason or right to be there at all. So how does the Ranger think it's supposed to work then? You just say "oops, sorry. My bad." Then everybody goes home at the end of the day (well, except for the innocent dead guy, of course)?
If the Ranger said that, he is helping destroy the reputation of the Texas Rangers as a fair and impartial investigative force.
Important words here

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Amber Guyger Patrol Partner Testifies About Racy Texts The Night Of Deadly Shooting

She didn't sound tired at all in her texts. Is it not a crime to illegally enter someone's home, even by mistake?

Amber's attorney is getting paid to say this:
“Amber Guyger firmly and reasonably believed she was in her own apartment,” said Rodgers. “Amber Guyger firmly and reasonably believed that she had confronted an intruder in her apartment. Amber Guyger firmly and reasonably believe that she had no choice she had options but to use her gun.”
But it's hard to imagine an unarmed guy, stoned, at a distance of 15-30 feet would be any kind of real threat to a police officer with a gun in her hand.

If Amber is found innocent of all charges, this would allow police to "mistakenly" enter anyone's home, shoot them dead, and get away with it. Does anyone of us want to live in that world?

Based on this fact alone:
Five of the jurors are black, four are Hispanic, two are white and one is Asian.
...I don't think Amber is gonna walk. Amber made a number of serious errors and should face the consequences of her actions.

Trial starts for former police officer.
Thanks for the update! One year later it seems they have not yet released blood alcohol or drug test results?

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

From the limited facts that have been made available to the public, I concur with the grand jury's decision. Would love to know the rest of the story.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Looks like the election went badly for Amber:

Newly Elected Dallas DA Wants to Charge Amber Guyger With Murder
Creuzot, a former judge who retired from the bench in 2012, told NBC that anything less than a murder charge for Guyger deviates from Dallas County precedent.

“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,” he said. “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.

...
In the meantime, Johnson told Fox 4 that she is determined to take the Guyger case to the grand jury.

“We are still proceeding with that case. And by the way, that case is going to the grand jury very soon,” she said. “I want the opportunity to bring the indictment. It happened under my watch, and I think that’s very significant that I take this case to the grand jury.”

Since it's been over a month I was thinking about this and found some articles: After Five Search Warrants, Amber Guyger’s Apartment Was Reportedly Never Searched

Where Is Amber Guyger’s Toxicology Report?
From what I've read and understand, no search warrant was issue for Guyger's apartment because she gave them permission to do so (hence no search warrant). And as far as the toxicology, I don't believe that will be made public until after the trial (where's Botham Jean's toxicology?).

Considering the source of your article, I'm not suprised by the bias.

This is not "fact" but makes sense as to what happened regarding a search warrant for Guyger's apartment.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2 ... ons-remain

Was Guyger's apartment searched?
Authorities have not said whether Guyger's apartment or vehicle were searched. A search warrant would not have been necessary if officials obtained consent to search her apartment at the South Side Flats.
We have no evidence that Guyger's apartment or vehicle was searched. 911 call recording has not been released. Botham's tox report is irrelevant, and autopsy report likely showing that the fatal gunshot wound was inflicted at close range has not been released. This incident is/was an international story and if newsone.com is the only source that will cover it, there is a legacy media failure here as well.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

The authorities took a blood sample from Officer Guyger to test for drugs and alcohol, but the results have not been released.
NY Times

Having personally experienced a drunk trying to force entry into my hotel room several years ago, I have to wonder what the motive is for not releasing these test results in a timely manner.

Delay, Deny, Defend?
