Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against The City of Dallas In Shooting Of Botham Jean

A federal judge has ruled that the city of Dallas is not liable for the fatal shooting of Botham Jean by off-duty police officer Amber Guyger.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn dismissed the city from a civil lawsuit that the family of Jean filed after he was shot and killed by Guyger.

The suit argued that Guyger used excessive force and that better police training could have prevented Jean’s death. The suit also accused the department of adopting a protocol of “shoot first and ask questions later,” reported the Dallas Morning News.

“Essentially, Officer Guyger was ill-trained, and as a result, defaulted to the defective DPD policy: to use deadly force even when there existed no immediate threat of harm to themselves or others,” the lawsuit stated.

The ruling leaves Guyger as the sole defendant in the suit and makes a large financial settlement unlikely.

Judge Lynn said that she was upholding a magistrate judge’s decision and dismissing the city from the case because the suit failed “to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.”

Christ instructs us to “love your enemy”. This is a tough one I haven’t quite achieved. Easy enough to forgive friends and family at some point. But to actually walk with Christ and forgive your enemies as he did from the cross – that’s something! I’m not faulting those who forgave. Rather, I am in awe of them. Better people than I am. I think I would want to in order to do as Christ instructed us, but I don’t know that I’d be that strong.

Shoot first and ask questions later,to use deadly force even when there existed no immediate threat of harm to themselves or others, How can people both black people who work in a professional capacity in both in Government and Law enforcement, can’t change laws that were created by the KKK. Black Attorney to me are all ass kissers and house niggers that have no power to change nothing but there underwear white Im sure is full of shit. If that black would shoot and killed that female cop, cops all over the world both black and white cops would have stood up, were niggers don’t, white know this, this why they can get away with murdering african Americans off.

THIS IS INSTITUTIONAL RACISM. THESE DEVILS WILL PAY RETRIBUTION CALLED KARMA. SOME BLACK PEOPLE LOVE THESE DIABOLICAL DEMONS. WHITE PEOPLE CAN’T BRING JUSTICE, BECAUSE THEY ARE BY NATURE DEMONIC.

Don’t understand it she definitely got the police treatment in the courtroom but the city isn’t held accountable very hypocritical and typical when it comes to the death of a black person at the hands of a white person especially in law enforcement O.J. Simpson got acquitted of murder and still got sued pure white bullshit

Well, that’s cause he did it and a jury was 1 – afraid of riots like in the Rodney King events and 2- looking to let a guilty black man go to atone for all the innocent black men that were convicted. He had a history of brutalizing Nicole. He had threatened to kill her on more than one occasion. Ron Goldman was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I loved OJ in his acting days. Was one of my favorite to watch. But his actions that night, nearly decapitating the mother of his children, were monstrous whether he’s black or white. His subsequent criminal activities in the years to follow at least brought some measure of justice when he was incarcerated for theft, kidnapping, etc.. whatever the charges were. I don’t care what color your skin is – you don’t get to justify murder.

They are who History has taught us(for those that know World history), DH DNA positive (neianderthal cave dwellers) that once taught basic hygiene, how Not to sleep with animals(Beastiality still exists), they like their forefather Esau hated his brother, trying to kill him in the womb. Hated by God but allowed to enslave the Real Jews Deut. 28th chapter, by ship, whip & Chattel. But God has written “I Will Repay!”. Overstand how the Slavecatchers(Police) operate & why. Do your research Sheepal…Overstand Why. A’se
