The judge in the murder trial of Amber Guyger, that the former Dallas police officer sentenced to 10 years for fatally shooting at her neighbor, resulting in a stir Wednesday if she uttered the convicted killer following the sentencing.
Guyger, a Faculties veteran of this Dallas Police Department, had been fired and charged with manslaughter after she entered Botham Jean’s flat on Sept. 6, 2018, thinking it was her very own and shot him twice, killing him.
Following Wednesday’s sentencing, Judge Tammy Kemp comforted Jean’s family, then briefly spoke with Guyger and left the space. The judge soon came back with a Bible,” WFAA TV of Dallas reported.
“You only need a tiny mustard seed of faith. First of all this,” she said, giving the Bible into Guyger.
Kemp and Guyger then embraced. The hug came following the brother of murder victim Botham Jean left a similar gesture toward Guyger.

Protesters plus some on interpersonal networking decried both the sentencing and Kemp’s embrace of Guyger.
“This judge opting to devour this lady is unacceptable,” Atlantic columnist Jemele Hill composed on Twitter. “Remember that this convicted murderer is exactly the same one who laughed about Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination, also killing ppl on sight”
The courtroom was brought to tears earlier when Jean’s brother hugged Guyger and said, “I actually don’t even want you to go to jail. I’d like the best for you because I know that’s precisely what Botham would desire.”
