    Your opinion is interesting, when I heard the prosecutions opening statement I would have agreed with you but when I heard the cross-examination of Amber Guyger I changed my mind completely. Did you see that?

    If it makes you feel any better, I also lost a child and when I found her dead my instinct was not CPR and I knew how to do it. My instinct was to call 911. I was alone and had to make that decision and when I returned her grandpa walked in and was doing it. I did not take over because at that point I couldn't think straight, the whole situation was absolutely surreal but then again that's probably mostly due to the fact that I loved her and I was in shock. She was my child. A couple of minutes later the first responders took over. I can tell you I see it as very comforting that others who could handle it did do it because I know she got their true effort since I am not sure how well I would have done it given the circumstances.

    What I understand now is why other people like to say that something would never happen to them, or they would've done something differently. It is self-preservation. If you come to the realization that "there but for the Grace of God, go I", then you would live your life in fear of everything like I do now having realized it could be me because it was once me.

    Certainly one can have a th
    " an unknown male inside the apartment confronted the officer at the door"

    well, there was a big fat lie that she told regarding this shooting- that he confronted her at the door----

    She had to re-think that lie, didn't she, since his body was found in the living room by the sofa and her shell casings were found in the kitchen area. Oops.

    I think the prosecution's best chance of getting a conviction in this case is to show what a liar AG is: I wish they could use that warrant (they probably can't) to show what her story was initially: he confronted her at the door- i guess her attorney told her that won't fly so she came up with another story: I think the medical examiner's testimony that the bullet was in a downward trajectory which would mean Botham Jean could not have been standing up coming at her, is huge: Does the defense have an opposing pathologist to counter that testimony? Once the jury believes a defendant is lying, they are more likely to convict- they won't believe anything she testified to.

    I don’t know if it was ever publicly confirmed:

    Did Amber Guyger Go On A Caribbean Cruise After Killing Botham Jean?

    ... court records revealed that Guyger may have gone on a Caribbean cruise after killing Jean.
    3/19/2019

    Aside from learning the trial date, “[t]he state also subpoenaed the cruise ship company Royal Caribbean to submit records ‘pertaining to all cruises taken by Guyger’ between Sept. 23, 2018, and March 4, 2019; beginning two weeks after Jean’s death,” NBC News reported.

    Beginning in November 2018, the judge stated Guyger was to surrender her passport to her attorney and was not to travel outside Texas without the court’s approval,” NBC reminded.

    AG went on a cruise last year, after that she had to give up her passport and was told to stay within the state of Texas.

    I am sorry for your loss. You captured my conflict exactly. You think you will react a certain way but then, it happens to you, and you are shocked that you do not. It opens your mind to what can happen in those circumstances. I am grateful to know that you had someone to take over so you know all was done that could be done. It is a very helpless feeling to realize you could not act when you would have wanted to do anything possible.
