    Intent to defend her home.

    I dont have time to school you on the nuances of homicides cases, specific intent, and a dozen other topics, just like you cant teach me to fly on the internet.

    Keep dreamin the dream, you and Avatar.

    To defend her home? This is a slippery slope. Can anyone now claim they are in the wrong house, the wrong apartment, the wrong vehicle? I’m sorry if it was a mistake on her part, and I am still dubious of that, but actions have consequences and I think she deserves to be put down....

      That is called a mistake of fact.

      Murder requires specific intent (or tranferred intent).

      Just sit and wait. This is what appellate courts are for.

      I’m not disagreeing with you and the law. What I’m saying is that this b!tch needs to be put down. My opinion, fwiw.

        I guess we'll see how the case evolves from here. I think the jury likely concluded that no reasonable person would have made the mistake of entering the person's home and believing it was hers. And that, it seems, would reasonably lead to a murder finding.

        She doesn't deserve prison time for manslaugher?

        If you carry a weapon and don't understand where the hell you are when you draw it, then you are negligent.

        Especially, if you're a trained law enforcement officer. In my view, that borders on willful, but even if not, she needs to spend a couple decades in jail.

        Guns really scare you don't they? A guy in my office is like that. Runs from the room if we carry in.

          Not to interrupt but thought this was worth sharing.

              Funny how the brother and family of the victim can forgive her, but a hate group like BLM has their panties in a wad yet again.

                  Tragic for sure.
                  But I thought for a murder conviction it had to be premeditated? :dunno:
                  Certainly she intended to kill him but he was what she thought was an intruder. Seems a lesser charge is appropriate.
                  I'll add this to the fray, maybe small girls shouldn't be cops.

                        What I really meant to say is I'm not so sure on the murder verdict and spending decades in prison. Yes I think some prison time is appropriate.

                        I would hate to be a judge or juror on this one. I hate to double down the tragedy by throwing away a second life because of nothing but a mistake. As far as I know there was no intentional negligent decision that lead to the mistake. Yes you have to be accountable for your actions and mistakes, but a sentence should ultimately serve a purpose.

                          How long do you think Botham Jean would have gone to prison for had he done the same exact thing to Amber Guyger? 10 years?
