From the start of this case, it was clear that Guyger was receiving particular therapy from legislation enforcement. One of the vital obvious situations displaying her privilege was the truth that the Texas Rangers stated of their report that Jean refused to obey Guyger’s “verbal instructions.” Had anybody else however a cop walked into an condo and killed an harmless man, do you consider that investigators would have stated something like this?
Lawyer Stephen Le Brocq, who operates a legislation agency within the North Texas space sums up the treatment of Guyger completely when he says that “The affidavit isn’t written objectively, not on the slightest. As acknowledged earlier than, they’re normally wholly in opposition to the accused. An goal view of the knowledge associated by the officer could be correct, for my part. This affidavit states details based mostly upon the phrase of the individual it seeks to accuse of legal wrongdoing.”
What’s extra, in response to WFAA, who obtained affidavits for the entire search warrants concerned within the case, none of them concerned the search of Guyger’s condo.
For many who don’t recall, police egregiously launched the search warrant findings of Jean’s condo on the day his household buried his useless physique. They tried to assassinate Jean’s character by claiming they discovered lower than a half ounce of weed in his condo. Nonetheless, they failed miserably at it.
One factor specifically, nevertheless, stood out to these paying consideration and that’s the reality the police didn’t launch any info on what they present in Guyger’s condo. In response to the knowledge presently obtainable, that’s as a result of they didn’t search it.
In response to WFAA, there have been 5 search warrants issued within the case—none of which had been for the killer’s condo. As WFAA reports:
Two of the warrants allowed investigators to take away the entrance door of Guyger and Jean’s condo, their door locks and to obtain knowledge for his or her door locks. A listing return states that they eliminated each of their door lock and downloaded the information from the door locks.
A 3rd search warrant gave investigators the authority to enter Jean’s condo and gather extra proof. A return reveals that investigators took pictures of his condo, made movies of his condo, carried out “laser measurements of firearm trajectory,” and picked up “gunshot residue” from the door body and kitchen wall of Jean’s condo.
A return for the fourth search warrant reveals investigators seized video from the surveillance digicam system within the condo administration’s workplace.
A fifth search warrant gave investigators the authority to acquire all communications associated to the incident within the possession of property administration, in addition to all surveillance video and all entry and entry logs from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on the night time of the taking pictures.
A listing return reveals investigators seized a USB drive containing the video, an occasion log report for “linear entry doorways and gates,” an “elevator entry door lock” report and a “lock audit report for each residences.
Now, even when police would attempt to search the killer cop’s condo, it’s too late. On Sunday, apartment staff notified residents in an electronic mail that Guyger “has vacated her condo and now not resides at our group.”
A supervisor on the advanced declined to point precisely when Guyger moved out and if she left the premises voluntarily, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Whereas residents can actually sleep higher figuring out that they don’t need to concern a killer cop strolling into their condo and murdering them, the household of Botham Jean probably sees this as yet another occasion of injustice.
