Lawyer condemns search showing Marijuana was found in Botham Jean’s Apartment



As investigation into the death of Botham Jean, a 26-year old staff of PriceWaterhouseCooper in Dallas continues, police obtained a warrant to search Jean’s apartment where they claimed they found two bullet casings, a police backpack and vest, 10.4 grams of marijuana, and metal marijuana grinder, according to WFAA.

Jean was murdered by a Dallas police officer Amber Guyger in his apartment Guyger mistook for hers and thought he was a burglar.

Jean’s lawyer Lee Merritt, according to USA Today, said the search “highlights just sort of the nefarious nature of their investigation.”

Merrittt, who only learned of the search warrant details shortly after Jean’s funeral on Thursday, said:

“They went in with the intent to look for some sort of criminal justification for the victim. It’s a pattern that we’ve seen before … we have a cop who clearly did something wrong. And instead of investigating the homicide — instead of going into her apartment and seeing what they can find, instead of collecting evidence relevant for the homicide investigation — they went out specifically looking for ways to tarnish the image of this young man.”

Dallas police conducted the search before turning the investigation over to Texas Rangers.

    This is so annoying! You found marijuana and then what???? A man was killed in his own apartment and you talk about marijuana???
    God please help our dark skin color, cos I am almost sure the story would have been different if he was white. The aggression when it comes to blacks makes me sick??.

    This guy was in his house, domain and the police officer had NO justifiable reason to kill him. Even if she thought it was your apt, why shoot him? Although, that story itself is BS. Was she intoxicated? Was she power tripping? Is she a racist?
    Why do these victims keep hiring the same lawyer? He’s not good at what he does. Are there not any other good black lawyers to represent these cases well?

    This is so ridiculous! But one thing I know for sure, she’s not getting away with this one. They MUST charge her with homicide, manslaughter (or this weak attempt to justify it) is a complete joke.

    This is beyond aggravating!!! I will not be surprised if the cops themselves planted the marijuana. Do they think people are insane? What has marijuana got to do with being murdered in your own home? If they like they should coke and heroine, it will not excuse her killing this young lad. If this cop gets away with this then I will know for certain that white supremacy not only exist (because we all know it does) but that it is still winning even in the 21st century. Why are we searching the victim’s home and letting the public in on “what was found”? When we are yet to hear anything on the murderer? The police has not said a word about this woman or what was said or found in her own house. Ok, they think we are stupid.

    My heart breaks over & over again at the blatant racism African Americans suffer in their own country, i want to feel hopeful that the social media is exposing it to the whole world but i don’t know if this will change anything because the justice system is rigged with loops that are entrenched in racism! i can’t believe this man is dead just like that – gone right in his own home, how most blacks in America are not suffering from post traumatic stress disorder is beyond me. Nice job “they” are doing trying to dehumanize this victim so that he is no longer seen as the victim of a hate crime

    This wicked woman would not escape God’s wrath.
    Let her racist police friends keep lying to cover up her heinous crime.
    Like I said, God’s wrath is awaiting her. That wrath, she won’t escape!
