    Would have to go back and listen to their testimony again, but they explained it.

    As a spectator, how someone acts on stand is something that is really interesting and telling. As I juror, I would only care if the story made sense and was supported by evidence.

    This is making no sense so far.

    I truly think she has remorse for what she did.

    She really is emotional right now.

    Aw she feels like a piece of crap and she has to live with what she did for the rest of her life!! Poor poor Amber. How awful! Meanwhile Botham Jean is dead! For doing nothing more than sitting in his apt eating ice cream and watching TV!

    She was the only person there and who's to say that in her mind she thought he was still a threat even though he was on the ground.

    She is crying with no tears. Her story has 1000 holes in it. I hope she is grilled by the Prosecution

    She shot him because she was scared. It's not about hate, it's about her being scared.....well how scared, confused and terrified do you think He was??!!! I'm sorry but even though it was an "accident" she needs to serve time for murdering an innocent man. Justice needs to be served because SOME of us know that if it had been the other way around...He would have most certainly gotten more than average prison time.....

    Admitting she deleted her boyfriend/fellow LE's texts. Said that was her normal routine. JMO She should have known better, she was obstructing justice at that point.

    Is she being questioned by defense now or is she on cross? I missed that part.

    I disagree. Personally I think her story makes sense and I could not convict her on a murder charge, a lesser charge absolutely.
    I believe her that she thought she was approaching her apartment. I also believe that as soon as she noticed the door open freely when pushed upon, it put her in alert mode. In fact I have come home to a house I was house sitting and it was obvious that someone had broken in as I approached the door. I being a normal unarmed person backed away and called for help for fear someone could be in there. She is a police officer and they don't react that way and I can understand that. Now in the same breath I feel as an officer she should've been able to access the situation before firing her weapon and that's why I think she should be held accountable with a Manslaughter conviction in the least.

    No the 27yr old male neighbor testified to hearing loud yelling before the shots, he just couldn't make out what was being said.

    Here goes the prosecution. "You are very concerned with how you feel, right?" Can't you imagine how that man felt."

    He's showing video of her in car after shooting. She doesn't seem very upset.

    Outside the window of her car in video, Jean's body is going by on the stretcher just a few feet from her.

    She's not showing any emotion, just started texting again.
