CNN: Joshua Brown, key witness in Amber Guyger murder trial and neighbor of Botham Jean, shot to death in Dallas.
I won’t be able to get this story out of my mind for the simple fact that the Key Witness is now dead after testifying against Amber Guyger. His testimony was met with fervor because he was the only one willing to testify about what he witnessed. Joshua Brown, 28, who lived across the hall from Jean Botham was shot around 10:30 p.m. outside of the South Side Flats apartments.
“He bravely came forward to testify when others wouldn’t, Dallas County prosecutor Jason Hermus told the Dallas Morning News. If we had more people like him, we would have a better world.”
Wittnesses told investigators they heard shots, then saw a sliver sedan speed out of the parking lot. A suspect description isn’t available.
Brown testified about what he heard on September 6, 2019. The night Jean Botham was killed.
He said, he had met Jean for the first time earlier the day he was killed. Brown said that night it sounded like two people meeting by surprise. He could not hear what was said but that they both were talking at the same time and he heard gunshots.
Guyger was convicted Tuesday off Murder. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
A former athlete turned entrepreneur, Brown lived in constant fear that he could be the next victim of gun violence, either state sanctioned or otherwise, Lee Merritt, an attorney who respresented the Jean family wrote on social media. “Brown deserves the same Justice he sought to ensure the Jean family.”
You know, I really had no interest in this story whatsoever. Until now. After it’s all said and done, now it’s gotten my attention. Amber Guyger was found guilty and this should have been over, but what if there was more? What if this what a set up to begin with? What if we missed the complete conspiracy behind Botham Jeans death?
I don’t know enough about the case, but I’ll try my hand at speculation.
Why was Botham Jeans door left open? Was there someone with a master key that propped it open? Why didn’t he know it was open? Did he live in a crime infested neighborhood? And if so, he DEFINITELY WOULDN’T HAVE LEFT IT UNLOCKED.
WHY Botham Jean? why him and not somebody else? What is it about him where he would be the target?
The fact that the Key Witness is dead tells me that Somebody missed something and this isn’t a random act of violence. Was Botham killed intentionally, and the death of anybody who testified to follow suit?
What type of apartment complex was this? Was it predominantly white with a few blacks scattered throughout? did they have issue with racism and prejudice in their community? Did Botham overall feel safe and had he shared concerns about his safety?
Why did the witness have an irrational fear of being gunned down? Once again, if this neighborhood was so violent, Botham most certainly would have locked his door. And was Joshua Browns fear reasonable for someone in his environment? Did the officer who killed Botham Jean experience the same type of fear and was it made public?
We see that Amber Guyger was racist and her text messages attested to that.
A few of her text messages
In one chain of text messages between Amber and others, they lamented having to work the MLK day parade in 2015. A person in the chain of messages questioned, When will this end? LOL and Amber replied, When MLK is dead… Oh wait…
In March 2018 and exchange of text messages with a married officer and he former police partner, Martin Rivera with whom Amber was having a sexual relationship, she mocked black officers.
“Damn I was at this area with 5 black officers!!!, Not racists, but damn” Rivera wrote.
“Not racist, but just have a different way of working and it shows” Amber replied.
Stuff you already know…
Amber Guyger who was white testified that after working long hours on September 6th, 2018 she returned to her Dallas apartment complex. In uniform but off duty, she supposed what she thought was her apartment. She noticed the door was partially open, saw a man inside whom she believed to be an intruder and fired her service weapon, killing him. But she was actually at the apartment directly above hers which belongs to the 26-year old Jean, who was black. Prosecutor said Jean had been on the couch in his shorts watching TV and eating vanilla ice cream when Guyger walked in. Another text message exchange introduced at her sentencing occurred just two days before Guyger fatally shot Jean.
On September 4th, 2018, a person named Ethridge appeared to play fully offered to give Guyger a German Shepherd. ” Although she may be racist” Ethridge wrote.
Amber goes on to say, “I wish I could have one, Amber responded, but not in this apartment 😦 smaller than my old one, and she added seconds later it’s okay, I’m the same.”
At trial, prosecutors said that even after Amber killed Botham Jean, she found time to text Rivera and sent sexual messages to him Days Later. Rivera testified he deleted the text messages between him and Amber from the night of the shooting. He is quoted as saying, that’s not something that I would want to be reminded of and I don’t keep messages unless it’s of importance to me.
Points to ponder…
So, yes I realized I am late, but once again it is what it is. So Joshua Brown testified that he heard two people having a conversation right? Yes he did, so if Amber had the opportunity to actually speak with Botham Jean, what did he say to her? Did at any point he tell her this is not your apartment?
Imagine an apartment complex for every apartment is set up the exact same way with the exact same floor plan. What is the likelihood that the decorations will be exactly the same? So you’re trying to tell me this woman came into this apartment and was so busy texting with her married lover that she completely missed the fact that nothing in this apartment looked anything like her apartment?
And if she had a question him to ask him what’s he doing in her apartment and he replied this is not your apartment this is my apartment, why would he have to get shot? That makes absolutely no sense. I understand the whole situation of the door was left open and she thought it was her place, but once a conversation ensued that makes absolutely no sense why Botham Jean would not tell her that the apartment belonged to him and that she in fact was in the wrong place.
