The story keeps changing for police officer Amber Guyger, who killed 26-year-old Botham Jean as he hung out in his own home. Now witnesses are saying they heard a woman knocking on the door and saying "Let me in" which contradicts Guyger's tale that the door was left ajar.
Guyger, a Dallas police officer, has been charged with manslaughter after she entered Jean's apartment in the middle of the night and shot him for "ignoring" her verbal commands. Of course, he was in his own home with no idea who had just entered his darkened apartment, so it's a tad righteous to expect anyone to "obey commands" from a stranger who just broke into their home.
Guyger has also claimed the apartment door, which she believed to be her own although she lives on a different floor, was ajar. Now witnesses are saying they heard a woman knocking and saying "Let me in." Others report Jean was "meticulous" and would never leave his door open.
The people of Dallas are having a hard time adjusting to the manslaughter charges brought against Guyger, particularly when anyone else who broke into an innocent person's home and shot them dead would be charged with murder. Protests have gone on in the city; officers fired pepper spay into the crowds.
