[Ed. – This has always just sounded wrong on its face. The defense wouldn’t want me on her jury. My immediate reaction: what took them so long?]
The Dallas Police Department on Monday fired an officer who barged into the wrong apartment in her building and killed a man who was inside.
The dismissal of Amber Guyger was announced by Dallas Police Chief Reneé Hall on Twitter.
Guyger, who was hired in November 2013, was fired after an Internal Affairs investigation concluded that the officer “engaged in adverse conduct when she was arrested for Manslaughter,” the chief’s Tweet read.
Hall’s tweet shed no new light on the death of Botham Jean, a 26-year-old native of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.
