Amber Guyger Is Finally Fired For Killing Botham Jean

The police officer who shot and killed unarmed Botham Jean in his own home has been fired from the Dallas PD. On Sept. 6,  Amber Guyger, entered Botham Jean‘s apartment and shot him. Amber has since stated that the shooting was misunderstanding and she thought she was in her own apartment not Jean’s.

Amber’s job was terminated on Monday by Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall. The Dallas Police department tweeted confirmation of the termination late Monday morning.

The move followed Hall’s declaration last week that she was “prohibited” from firing Guyger, adding further confusion to a case that has hinted at police trying to cover-up the now-former officer’s puzzling excuse of confusing her apartment for Jean’s.

“I can’t do that because there are both local, state and federal laws that prohibit me from taking action,” Hall said Tuesday. “There are civil service laws we have to adhere to.”

It was unclear what exactly changed to allow Hall to fire Guyger on Monday.

So what she’s fired. She needs to be arrested and charged for killing an unarmed man in his own home because of her lies. Thinking she was in her apartment. That is some cover up mess. She knew exactly what she was doing. And her cronies were trying to cover for her.
