There’s absolutely no dispute over whether Amber Guyger murdered Botham Jean this past year. But nearly every other component of this high-profile situation is wreathed in controversy.
Some see the shooting as a tragic accident with nearly unbelievable conditions. Others put it in pattern of white officials killing black guys who, they say, points to systemic problems in American policing.
Opening arguments are slated to start Monday. The jury will ultimately have to reach consensus on whether Guyger committed murder, a lesser crime or no offense in any way. But one of the only points of agreement about her situation in Dallas is it will profoundly shape the relationship between citizens and police.
