    I’m not sure having this guy testify about how eager she was to run towards a situation where she had a good chance of needing to use her weapon is a great idea.

    Jury now hearing from Cathy Odhiambo, a fellow officer and friend of Gugyer's. They've known each other from before their time at DPD. "This is a girl that I love as a friend. She's been good to me all the time I've known her."

    Another DPD employee testifying now about Gugyer's character. Said she was courageous in helping the night of the July 7, 2016 ambush. "She was just ready to go," he said.


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 7m7 minutes ago
    Prosecutors questioning the officer, Thomas MacPherson, about a groupchat Guyger, MacPherson, and other officers were in. In the chat, they've made derogatory comments about a supervisor, and prosecutors are saying it's a sign that Guyger isn't as respectful as her coworkers say.


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 7m7 minutes ago
    Prosecutor asks MacPherson asked if Guyger's text to Martin Rivera about black officers would surprise him. He replies: "It would sound out of character for her."


    LaVendrick Smith‏Verified account @LaVendrickS 4m4 minutes ago
    This line of questioning happened outside the presence of the jury. Judge Kemp rules prosecution can't ask MacPherson about the text thread in which officers complained about their supervisor. Not allowing the MLK Day texts or other texts because they weren't sent to him.

    What else has been testified too? Botham sang at church and he worked at a prestigious accounting firm. He had many friends and was well liked. Why can't she be afforded the chance to have her facts testified to? Everything should be equal in a trial. Or maybe not....

    The defense witnesses are all just falling flat in my opinion...nothing mitigating. They just need to be done with it.

    The testimony from her sister was a bit strange, maybe she was just nervous and didn't say the right words?

    Defense: "You know your sister well, does she seem genuine in her remorse?"

    Sister: "She's one of the most genuine people you could ever meet and I know those that know her would attest to that."

    The disparity in testimony is glaring. She talked to people, hung out with them, etc. I feel they are trying to make normal interactions as special. I expected the defense to present evidence that she was something more than that. No one has seemed terribly sad or surprised. It's very odd.

    If you listened to testimony about the victim and came away with that he sung and people liked him...you missed a lot.

    The defense deserves to have their chance to defend her. Absolutely. They either aren't doing a good job, people don't know her very well, or she has done very little of note with her life

    ABC is saying they're surprised that her family didn't express sympathy and sorrow for Botham's family. That it would be just a basic human kindness gesture to do so.

    I think this would have been expressed if they read statements. They're answering specific questions up there.

    This witness is getting a little snarky and worked up.

    Maybe her sister can't answer in the affirmative and doesn't want to straight out lie.

    I disagree that AG's training failed her. She did not respond as trained.

    She shot to kill an alleged burglar!

    If she suspected someone was inside, she should have taken cover and called for help.

    She did not radio for back up -- PD only 5 minutes away.

    She made no attempt to render aid when she discovered her mistake.

    No, she did not respond to this incident as trained.

    MOO

    Except for Amber's mother, others testifying sound like they'd rather be doing something else.
