Anything Less Than a Life Sentence for Amber Guyger Isn’t Justice

Eye Wall Comrades,

Due to my faith, I don’t believe in the death penalty.  I do, however, believe in rehabilitation, but I understand the society we live in isn’t one conducive of producing the type of effective rehabilitation an anti-black bigot needsTherefore, I believe if one takes a life intentionally, especially if you do so under the inspiration of racism, you deserve to be in prison for the rest of your time here on this planet.

In other words, let the punishment fit the crime.  You took a life, so you have to give up your life of the freedom of interacting with the general society.  crime.

The Amber Guyger murder trial has transitioned into the sentencing phase after she was found guilty of first-degree murder.  And, during this phase, the prosecutors cross-examined Amber Guygers character and shed light on some very telling evidence for the jury to see spelling out who she really was at heart.

They were able to collect Amber’s phone records, and what they found were a number of racist and hateful conversations she had engaged in with her cop peers.  

Along with this damning evidence, they exposed Amber’s Pinterest account and uncovered several aggressive posts about committing acts of violence to citizens and ones taking indirect shots at the integrity of black people. 

What the prosecutors did not include, though, and what individuals who constantly study and challenge white supremacy, such as myself, had discovered back when Botham Seam was initially murdered, was a very peculiar picture of Amber Guyger.  In this photo, she is posing next to what appears to be a family member who is throwing up the white power hand signal.
Many people who use this signal try to deny “white power” is what it stands for, and some say claiming it to be so is just an opinion.  However, the Anti-Defamation League has officially declared it to be a hate symbol, just so you know I’m not basing that claim off any bias.

It has been made perfectly clear she had anti-black racist views, and, therefore, it is fair to assume race does factor into why she forced her way into Botham Sean’s apartment and shot him in cold blood.  The People don’t need this proven in the court of law.  Anyone can look at the clear evidence and, based on common sense, and arrive come to that conclusion. 

Yahoo News put out a piece explaining how the guilty verdict was “a victory for black people.” Nothing could be farther from the truth.  We live in a society governed by the rules of racism/white supremacy, and one of the freedoms coupled with white privilege (which white supremacy generates) is the ability for white people to harm black people with little or no punishment. 

What a “W” would look like in this instance is if that wicked freedom was ripped away from her, someone classified as white, permanently.  Life in prison for a cop who unconstitutionally executes an unarmed black person would send a message to the DPD and to the rest of the country, there will be severe punishment for doing so.  A life sentence would represent a direct undermining factor to white privilege’s granted right to take life at a whim. 

Roy Oliver intentionally shot a 15-year-old black boy for fleeing him, and he only received 15 years for doing so.  That was not justice for Jordan Edwards, his family, nor black people.  The punishment should fit the crime, and, since Roy Oliver took a life, his life of freedom to dwell among civilized society should be taken away.  And, the same principle should apply to Amber Guyger.

We don’t need cops to have better training.  They’re are trained properly on how to not kill civilians if it is possible in any given situation.  We, as black people, need and should require justice in the form of PUNISHMENT, and nothing else should surfice.  

One Love & One Justice,

  1. I just read a few headlines of Amber Guyger’s sentencing. Only ten (10) years for taking the life of an innocent man in the PRIVACY OF HIS OWN HOME, with overwhelming evidence (racist text messages, Pinterest post that indicate a person willing to take another person’s life) all this, against this woman and having evidence of racist ideologies saturated through this woman makes this a “miscarriage of justice”. Hearing her responses to the fact that she intentionally shot at Mr. Jean and the fact that she did not perform CPR as she is medically trained to do so, are all implications that this was clearly murder. This is not justice, period! Like I tell my colleagues, I foresee civil war coming to America…again!

    She will stand before an Almighty Judge one day soon and give account for her actions of that day. I am so fed up with how people overlook the obvious. The jurors in this case were not all white, but of different ethnic groups, I believe predominately Black/African American, and yet, they had an opportunity to seek the weight of TRUE JUSTICE for this case, and did not! What? Were jury members enticed because a Black officer consoled Amber Guyger by stroking her hair and rubbing her back after the “guilty of murder verdict” was announced on 01 October 2019. Who cares that the officer stroked her hair in a possible gesture of support. She shouldn’t have touched her in the first place. It was out of place to have even done that. But they know, whomever it is, beit the TV media, news reporters, etc, they know and will highlight that to millions of viewers and the weak sheeple’s perception of this whole murder case is manipulated and changed. It’s evil how the events are portrayed and represented to viewers.

    Life in prison without the possibility of parole should have been the sentencing verdict. There will be backlash because it wasn’t. Society is so dumbed down, they don’t know what true justice is anymore. Everyone is trying to fit in compassion but they’re doing so out of emotion, not looking at the intent of what occurred and what the proper consequences ought to be. It will get worse before it anything gets better. People need to prepare themselves for the the One Judge, Jesus the Christ, who will hand down His Judgement soon. People are asleep, and the system of justice, is broken. I see these incidences occurring more and more literally every week now. Travesties of justice of becoming more and more prevalent. Black America, you’ve been spat in the face by your own peers. Folk need to wake up!

    1. Brother,

      You summed up what the conscious collective is thinking perfectly. I have nothing to add nor detract from your statement. Thank you for taking the time to compose this well-thought-out comment and for sharing your perspective with the audience, sir.

      1. Stormy Poet, hello brother! Thank you for your kind words and support of my statement as I believe I truly spoke for the many people who feel that this was a deception which we just witnessed, that is, for those of us that are not asleep. Also, I just read of a young Black man, who has been sentenced to jail for ten (10) days for simply oversleeping and missing…”jury duty”. I mean…really? A Fine…maybe…but 10 days were the accused is heading? I mean if someone oversleeps and is late for work or doesn’t show up because of illness, does that constitute jail time? SMH

        Oh BTW, there’s that number “10” again! Wonder if he’ll be able to be released in “5” days.

        Best Regards,
        Gregory
