Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger is Fired for Killing Botham Jean

Less than a week after Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall claimed she was “prohibited” from firing the cop who killed an innocent man after entering his apartment without permission, claiming she thought it was her apartment, the chief proved herself wrong by firing Guyger.

As usual with the case of terminated cops, Guyger has the right to appeal, which means she has a very good chance of getting her job back, but that will likely depend on the outcome of the manslaughter charge against her.

Guyger, who killed Botham Jean on September 7, has been on paid administrative leave prior to the termination, which was announced this morning by Dallas police in a Facebook post which accused the cop of “adverse conduct.”

But last Tuesday, Chief Hall explained the following reasons why she was unable to fire Guyger.

> “There is one overriding reason that I have not taken any administrative or employment action against Officer Amber Guyger. I don’t want to interfere with the on-going criminal investigation into her actions.

> “Here’s why. As an employer, DPD can compel Officer Guyger to provide a statement during a DPD administrative investigation and those statements given to DPD could potentially compromise the criminal investigation.

> “That is not a risk I am willing to take. We cannot let the criminal case be determined on a ‘technicality’ rather than the facts. An exhaustive and thorough criminal investigation is essential, and as soon as we are assured that conducting an administrative investigation will not impede on the criminal investigation, we will proceed.”

Guyger was not charged with manslaughter until three days after the shooting and she was allowed to bond out immediately while citizens arrested for protesting the shooting remained incarcerated for two days on minor charges of obstruction.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
