Hugs in Dallas courtroom, extraordinary acts of mercy for Amber Guyger after her sentencing.
Closed

It was an emotional few days in Dallas during the Amber Guyger trial this week. Brandt Jean, the victim Botham Jean's 18 year old brother, took the witness stand, and spoke to the defendant ex-police officer, Guyger,, saying, "I know if you go to God and ask him, he will forgive you. I love you just like anyone else, and I'm not going to hope you rot and die." He told Guyger. "I personally want the best for you. I wasn't going to say this in front of my family, I don't even want you to go to jail. I want the best for you, because I know that's exactly what Botham would want for you. Give your life to Christ. I think giving your life to Christ is the best thing Botham would want for you."

Tears were flowing in the courtroom as Brandt Jean ask the judge, if he could give the defendent Amber Guyger a hug. The judge granted his request. It was an extraordinary act of mercy for Amber Guyger, after hearing her 10 year sentence for the murder of Botham Jean. They met in front of the judge's bench, and hugged for a long time as Brandt was talking to Amber. Later Judge Tammy Kemp spoke privately to Guyger, and also hugged her, and appeared to give her words of hope, as she handed her a Bible.

This was a touching moment and a heartfelt day in Dallas, as we have never seen this happen before in a courtroom. It helped to ease the tensions for all concerned, and for those of us, who were watching. God never ceases to amaze us, we are blessed to have his amazing grace.

looks like the karma is settled between the two,...
his forgiving her and accepting the situation... hopefully no prejudice or revenge ever comes up for this guy later in his life for the lady cop.

Ohh I’m sooo underwhelmed. She should win a Oscar for that acting job. Getting away with murder in more than one way. Killing a guy who has a mamby pamby family that has no value or respect for life or accountability just like her. . Its ridiculous. And being the predator she is...she took full advantage of the situation. How heartwarming? Ehhh not really kind of nauseating. But whatever
If it was the other way around. And it was the black guy that killed a white lady cop “accidentally” in her apartment ..and said he was tired and sexting and it was an “accident” like she claimed i guarantee there would be no hugs. nothing but the death penalty in Texas.
What a joke.
That level of forgiveness people who have no respect or value for life to begin with, or...is for the gods and saints. I am certainly none of the above.
