Dallas police face ire over portrayal of man shot by officer

Another search warrant allowed investigators to collect communications from property management connected to the shooting and seize the logs from access doors and gates and an elevator access door lock as well as a lock audit report for each of their apartments, the WFAA story stated.

Merritt said the witnesses are sisters who live at the apartment complex.

Lee Merritt, who represents the family, criticized the search warrant, saying it shows that investigators were looking for drug paraphernalia in the hours following Jean's death.

Guyger has been charged with manslaughter and is free on $300,000 bond. Court documents say Guyger thought she had encountered a burglar.

Merritt said that even though marijuana was found in Jean's apartment, there is no way to prove that the marijuana belonged to Jean, and that information should have been sealed and not revealed to the public.

On Thursday, the Kaufman County Sheriff's Office released video of Guyger behind bars in handcuffs and jail attire.

The response to the news of Dallas police criminalizing Jean was scathing.

Mulder and other legal experts say investigators would not want to risk evidence being thrown out because they did not include it in the search warrant.

The attorneys for the family of 26-year-old Botham Jean made the demand that Officer Amber Guyger be fired during a news conference on Friday.

My only real chance to win was at the start, unfortunately it was a bit all over the place and I knew my chance had gone. The German arrived in Singapore 30 points behind Hamilton, with only seven races left to overhaul the Mercedes driver.

"They have reassured us that, despite the charge of manslaughter, which we believe is the inappropriate charge, that they are keeping all options open".

The news came on the same day that his family held funeral services.

"I'm sure everybody saw it when they went in there to treat the man who had been shot", Mulder said.

Less discussed has been the fact that the search warrant contradicts Guyger's other statements - and the official account described in her arrest affidavit. This is despicable. Why did the search warrant include "contraband" and "narcotics" among the items sought?

Jean's apartment was dark, she claimed, according to an arrest affidavit.

The Dallas Police record says that Jean met Guyger at the door, while Guyger told the Texas Rangers that Jean was across the room when she entered the door that was "ajar".

In the case of Eric Garner, who was fatally strangled by police in NY in 2014, police and subsequently the news media frequently emphasized that Garner was accused of illegally selling individual cigarettes prior to the fatal encounter and that he had a history of arrests, the researchers noted. "It is time to recognize lives matter". He said that unfairly gave the implication this was somehow justified. "My son's life matters".

However, the search warrant, signed by Judge Brandon Birmingham, claimed Jean confronted Guyger at the front door as she tried to enter, with neighbors hearing the pair in confrontation. The fatal shot hit Jean in the chest. She said Jean ignored her verbal commands, and she fired two shots, hitting him once in the torso, the affidavit said.
