  1. Shot by his neighbor right, right? She wasn’t acting in her profesión so he wasn’t shot by an officer. No one gets killed by an electrician and people claim the work had something to do with it. Give me a break

  3. On the same day the cops released info that they "found" pot in Botham's apartment. Those motherfuckers have nothing but good intensions in mind.

  7. I think he forgives her but she should still be held accountable for her actions! He was just that much of a God fearing and loving man vibe u get from his smile!

  8. "Hands up, don't shoot" would have saved his life…. When someone has a gun and they ask you a question, ANSWER THEM.!!!!!!!!!!

  9. 4 floor apt building? 4 floor parking garage? how could Guyger not know she parked on the 4th floor?

  10. She will get some time most likely. But it won't be enough. Not in the eyes of the family and friends of the victim. The only thing they would consider just would be death penalty.

  11. The person that killed this man has a truly bizarre account of the events. She was not only at the wrong apartment but in the wrong floor of the building. Either she was intoxicated or she did this intentionally. And in both cases, that is homicide. – (If the roles were reversed and he had done this to her in the same scenario, I guarantee he would be in jail without bail and facing the death penalty.)

  15. It is a female so she won't get a normal punishment. She was menstruating and there was so much going on in her life at the the time. She just was emotionally overwhelmed. Have mercy on this poor white woman. She is sorry so just let her go.

  16. Apparently he was a drug dealer according to the Dallas Police Department. They found pounds of marijuana kilos of cocaine and meth in his apartment along with marijuana papers and other drug paraphernalia. Something fishy in Denmark. Who do believe? Why did it take them three hours to rest her when the police department is right down the street.

  17. The Country of St. Lucia should take American Police Brutality to the United Nations for justice, since American Police have a long history of Police Brutality. They should even organize other Caribean Island to divest and boycott the US.
