A judge judges that the city of Dallas is not responsible for Amber Guyger who shoots Botham Jean

Roommates, Botham Jean’s family have been on a rough road since Amber Guyger shot and killed him in his own apartment. And after a recent decision by the judge, the family is ready to fight back.

According to CBS News, a federal judge ruled that the city of Dallas was not responsible for the police officer on leave, Amber Guyger, who had shot Botham Jean. The family filed a lawsuit saying that better training from the Dallas Police Department could have saved their lives.

With this decision, the family will likely not be granted a significant financial settlement and they are apparently planning to appeal. They are said to have claimed that the DPD adopted a “shoot first and ask questions later” protocol, leaving their loved one for dead.

“Essentially, officer Guyger was poorly trained and, therefore, failed the flawed DPD policy: use lethal force even when there was no immediate threat of harm to themselves or others”, declared the trial.

As we reported earlier, Amber was sentenced to 99 years in prison and she was sentenced to 10 years, which many people thought was too light.

Despite what they had done, Botham’s family publicly forgave Amber and kissed her, especially Botham’s 18-year-old brother Brandt Jean.

“I’m not going to say that I hope you die like my brother … Personally, I want the best for you,” he said. “I don’t even want you to go to jail … because that’s exactly what Botham would want.”

Justice Lynn made his decision on the basis of a magistrate’s decision because the trial did not “set out a claim on which relief can be granted.

For the moment, no word from the family’s lawyer, but we will keep you informed of the evolution of the story, Roomies!
