Surely the rangers did not go in and just take her statement and leave it at that since she admitted to the shooting.

It has been said the doors use key cards and that info would clear much up.

Maybe they will release their findings soon.

As hundreds gathered Thursday to pay tribute to the beloved man from St. Lucia, a search warrant for his apartment was made public. The document states that officers found several items in the apartment, including two fired cartridge casings, a metal marijuana grinder and 10.4 grams of marijuana.

Dallas police officer realized she was in the wrong apartment when she turned on the lights

The search warrant indicates that officers went inside the apartment looking for drugs the night of Jean's death, his mother, Allison Jean, said during a news conference Friday with her attorneys. She accused authorities of defaming her son.

"The Dallas Police Department investigators were interested specifically in finding information that could help assassinate his character," attorney Lee Merritt told reporters.

"Twenty-six years on this earth he lived his life without a blemish. It took being murdered by a Dallas police officer for Botham Jean to suddenly become a criminal."

The lawyer representing the family is Mr. Crumb. The same guy who invokes race in every other case he represents (Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown). The race card was the first thing he played in his media release.

Considering the apartment was dark and all she saw was a shadow I am curious how Crumb knows the cop was racist and how the cop knew it was a black man in the apartment.

Questions the investigation will ask and answer.

It does seem that some are trying to color it so. I am not the least surprised.

I suspect anyone in his place would have been shot unless it can be proved she targeted him.

I don't care if the cop was racist or not, what I'm struggling with is the whole "shoot first and ask questions later" concept!

This screams of improper training, and improper mentality.

So what's the precedent here???...it's okay for an LEO to show up at your door, regardless of where it is, and gun you down in your own house if you don't comply with their demands to "PUT YOUR HANDS UP, DON'T MOVE, GET ON THE GROUND!! LIE FACE FIRST ON THE GROUND, DON'T MOVE, TURN AWAY FROM ME, DON'T MOVE, GET ON YOUR KNEES, DON'T MOVE, PUT YOUR ARMS OUT TO YOUR SIDES, DON'T MOVE, ...IF YOU MOVE AGAIN I'M GOING TO SHOOT YOU, GET ON THE GROUND, DON'T MOVE, GET ON YOUR KNEES....DON'T YOU DARE MOVE!!"

(BANG, BANG, BANG...B-B-B-B-B-BANG, BANG, BANG BANG, BANG, BANG...click)

"Uhhhhh, he failed to comply so I shot him because I felt my life was in danger."

You and me both. She could have easily stepped away from the door and not been in a threatened situation. At that point assess what is happening.

I suspect that her story is going to evolve again and will include some sort of threatening gesture/gestures on his part and/or her thinking he had a weapon of some sort.

Then it would be up to the evidence to disprove her defense, and that's gonna be a pretty tough ask.

I like this idea. It sounds bad to a society of snowflakes who can't even handle video games, but the family shooting that lady dead would be even stevens. That would be about square.

How do these people even become cops?

As hundreds gathered Thursday to pay tribute to the beloved man from St. Lucia, a search warrant for his apartment was made public. The document states that officers found several items in the apartment, including two fired cartridge casings, a metal marijuana grinder and 10.4 grams of marijuana.


I'm left wondering how 10.4 grams of marijuana is relevant in any god damn way.

It won't be to a reasonable minded person. Pretty doggone minor compared to shooting someone in their house.

It isn't, other than the officers conducting the search are required to inventory everything they take during the search.

To me, it's a passive/aggressive smear on the victim..if the police had any class they might of said.."nothing of significance was found, other than the 2 shell casings"

This is why I generally have a distrust, bordering on dislike of the police on the whole. Individual officers I might have more respect for.

Only in america do we investigate the victim and leave the self admitted guilty party's apartment untouched.

That part makes no sense.

Well, I'm going to say..it makes some sense to search a crime scene..on a basic level, maybe pictures of the scene..etc
Digging through his stuff..no f'ing way!!

Nah. The only things that have to be inventoried are items taken during the search.

ETA - in re your other comment: search warrants are public record in Texas, so it doesn't matter if the PD says anything or nothing. Only way they could have kept it out of public record was to try and get it sealed, which would have opened up a whole other can of worms.

The shooter could have dumped the pot. Wonder if it was fingerprinted or if it will be used in trial for whatever reason.

I guess the take away for me is that red door mats and pot does not mix well.

As far as the search warrant goes they did not need it for the crime scene investigation but to collect character damming items they likely seen that were not related to the crime.

Others will know more about it but it sure seems that way to myself.
