    I think there is a reason why this wasn't fought for all that hard by the defense. The prosecution could have easily brought up the hundreds and thousands of tired police officers over the years that did not shoot someone in their own apartment. Literally...every cop works these shifts. Her exhaustion is not special for the job.

    She was planning on going to the gym to work out after she got home so she wasn't all that exhausted.

    So your saying she was looking to murder someone after her 13hour exhausting shift? I doubt that, lets see what sentence she gets!

    The prior days to the incident AG had off. She also planned to go to the gym that evening. So working a long day and being exhausted is a moot point IMO.

    It's probably not as bad, women do have an inherent nurturing quality about them although this seems to be changing.

    Oh I didn't mean she should be put to death. I meant she should spend the rest of her life in prison, no parole. I agree with you, it is too bad CA didn't have this jury.

    AG's point of view was as a police officer. Her gender is irrelevant. The concept of equal pay for equal work means the job performance expectations are the same for police officers no matter the gender or the race of the defendant or the victim.

    Guyger’s defense returned repeatedly to her exhaustion, as she had just wrapped up a lengthy shift at work. The prosecution showed that she had been exchanging sexually explicit text messages with her partner earlier that day and argued that she may have been distracted by the texts.

    According to Guyger, she entered the apartment directly above hers because she had accidentally parked on the wrong level of the building’s parking structure. The lead investigator for the case argued that this was a common mistake in the building.

    It became apparent before the trial that Guyger received favorable treatment from other officers after the accident. Police left her alone at the crime scene, a member of a police union was allowed to speak to her before her arrest, and Texas Ranger David Armstrong, the lead investigator for the case, told the court (though not the jury) that he did not believe she had committed a crime. In a move that outraged critics even more, police searched Jean’s apartment for drugs, found marijuana, and made that information available to news media. The family described the move as an attempted smear against the victim. This and other actions by law enforcement caused critics to point to race as a factor—a line of argument Kemp banned in her courtroom.

    Relief is among the reactions as Dallas leaders hear the Amber Guyger 'guilty' verdict

    No, she wasn't looking to murder anyone. Where did I say that? :confused:

    Yes, right as she pushed the door open w weapon drawn. But no, she should have been paying attention before she took a mans life.

    The State trying to bring in her Pinterest posts, when she admitted to smoking marijuana on her police department job application, and among other things in her personnel file in order to try to and get a stricter sentence, I believe. Defense arguing that all of that in the personnel file are either hearsay or allegations that have not been proven and therefore should not be held against her for this sentencing.
