I guess this is a good reason to lock your door, or not live in an apartment.

Amber's reasoning was scary, an un-armed man watching television and eating Ice Cream is not a real threat, even if they were in "your" apartment.

While I'm pleased to see she was convicted, the sentence is too light, IMO.

She could be eligible for parole in as soon as five years, which is absurd.

If it was a white male shooter, I'm sure it would been the max.

Woman too often use the emotional card to justify everything and it's sicking.

You can't let emotions override logic and fact.

Her emotional breakdown on the stand was all an act, IMO.

Notice how her eyes were not even the tiniest bit watery?

I would say the guy she was dating dodged a bullet himself.

There ought to be a 4 foot tall floor number across from each elevator to avoid confusion. I think police training may have also kicked in here.

Not only was it that reason, she also said she shot him because “he didn’t follow my commands.” Typical cop. “Do what we say or we kill you. Hesitate, and we kill you. Ask questions and we kill you.”

See a theme here?

"he didn’t follow my commands" could all also have been a language barrier.

"he didn’t follow my commands" is meaningless in this scenario for her defense...

Cops apparently let Amber Guyger out on jail to finish the job at the apartment complex.
