If i was living sober, and i walked into my home and smelled weed...IMMEDIATELY i would be like "oh shit this isnt my house". But hey i guess cognition isnt the same for everyone. But the wrong door sure we've all done that, it happens.

The whole “what are you doing in my apartment/house?” shit happens all the time in comedies and it ends either with the explanation, “get out or I will call the police” or as in this case - “this is not your apartment, you idiot, get out or *I* will call the police”. Never it ends with a supposedly “scarred petite white damsel” ignoring the option of running out of the apartment to call for help and just shooting an unsuspecting man *in the heart*. That cunt was either mentally sick or on drugs, so that she couldn’t even recognise that it’s not her apartment and decided to entertain herself with homicide. Or she is lying and just went up to her neighbour’s apartment, killed him and used a lazy-ass excuse to get away with it. Bonus: a cute hug in court! Latest news is that now anyone can enter your home and murder you.

THE CASE OF THE YOUNG WHITE FEMALE COP who enters A YOUNG BLACK MALE'S APARTMENT & KILLS HIM IMMEDIATELY. (YOUNG, I say.) The victim is a prize-male on another floor from where she lives and within '''the moments of a mistake''' this white female has killed a prized black male. He is dead. He cannot tell us what was said, what was done.....and WHY? Did he denounce her? She claims to have been so out of sorts (tired and confused) that she was not aware she was on the wrong floor. And even more, at no point, after she was in his apartment did she realize that she was not in hers???? I mean, how could that happen and did they take a video of '''her''' apartment and show it to the jury. Women shop. No woman forgets what she buys for her apartment. It should have taken a half of a second to recognize that she was in the wrong apartment and then start her apology. Instead, she drew her gun and shot this valuable male. There is only one thing that needs to be said to your '''white''' audience: '''The police department is to be blamed. This female had no business being a cop if she couldn't handle '''making an apology while she backed out of his apartment.''' He was killed because he was not white...or because he was not interested. *I thought police officers had lockers on the job so that they could change their clothes & kinda change their minds from being a cop. The female judge seems as over-wrought as the female cop. She is in the wrong DEpartment to practice HER religion. And the younger brother hugged the killer-cop in court because he is like eighteen with plans for his future and he fears his future is collapsing before he can start it. *He said that. I AGREE WITH THE YOUNGER SON....I felt he was in his apartment (inside) and there's an intrusion that threatens his whole life before he lives it.

I didn't think of it like he explained it but it makes total sense.
Ken 13 hours ago
Why is he equating her with someone that joins a gang and intentionally commits crimes? He's calling her a murderer. The definition of murderer is "to kill (a human being) unlawfully and with premeditated malice". He's trying to equate her with thugs for some reason. I mean, we could all be called victims of circumstance and throw all cases out the window, but there's a difference between intentional and accidental.

She had the complexion for the protection. She should of got the same punishment, death no mercy, but nope majority of the jury was my people who stupidly had compassion for a evil woman who tried to manipulate her crime and the Dallas PD are in on it and have barely if any sympathy for the man who was murdered. An eye for an eye. Her time will come as well as all her people (and the media) who have done (and is still doing) great evils to the Indigenous and blacks, God's people.

Really Trevor? So what do you say now when you learn that the key witness in the case was murdered too and what if you learn that Amber was fucking Botham and they knew each other? And WHAT DO YOU SAY, if I tell you that yesterday another black person, a sista, was killed by the Fort Worth Police, in her house? And what if I think that the police heartlessly orchestrate this killing to take the attention away from the Botham Case? Please tap into all this!!!

No it’s not weird, our whole legal system is f up! We turn a blind eye until it comes back. It just like being charged with a gun! If I rob u with my hand in a bag I get caught and it’s proven I didn’t have a gun I can still be charged because I made u think I had a gun! Honestly it’s all bs! Just a fun fact

Don't they teach cops to shoot to wound anymore? I know most of you are not gun people, but it is actually quite hard to kill a person, most people bleed out, and that takes time. This single shot instant killing is unreal marksman skills. Look at all the drive-bys where they kill people just standing by.

I think the grace and empathy was shown on the part of Botham Jean’s family. BJ and his family are the victims and no one should begrudge them their reaction. It’s a tragedy anyway you lookT it.
Texas is considered one of the top racist states in America.
nikelnicole Day ago
The judge was used as a pawn. Guyger was blatantly telling a lie and maybe was told to stick with the story. For that alone she should have gotten a greater sentence. *If* she when into *"Her"* apartment and found someone in here why not exit quick and call the police. A gun does not make one invincible or irresponsible but should make one more calculated in their decision and more responsible. If a cop can be so irrational and reckless what about mere civilians.

Trevor Noah has such a great common sense approach to comedy. I love hearing him speak on all things. Just an awesome guy. People are mad at the judge because she or any other judge for that matter has never hugged a convicted murderer, especially one convicted in their courtroom. It's insulting. Add that to the fact that she's endorsed by the Dallas Police Association and is sorority sisters with the Dallas Chief of Police and it truly seems suspect.

Remove all those guns may probably significantly reduce the death of innocent lives. If even a cop doesn’t know the basic rules of engagement, how would you expect an untrained citizen to handle guns properly?... and it is strange that this lady didn’t know the guy is her neighbour and shot him... didn’t she see him along the common lobby or somewhere around the neighbourhood to recognise he is no threat? Sad...

I HAVE NEVR SEEN CLIPS OF THIS MAN NOT MAKING SENSE!! DL HUGELEY SAID "the worse thing/wrd most white people care less about hearing is "FAIR"!! NO ONE WANTS MORE, WE JUST WANT EVEN. IT HAS NEVR BEEN EVN HERE...WE have lived it...THIS CASE/SENTENCE DIDNT SURPRISE ANY OF US. In the minds of most, we are less than whites...STILL 3/5s of a person(per US law). It doesn't (still) have to b on paper to get treated as such. We INHERENTLY expect whites to get preferential treatment. Let me guess, "it's all in our heads" or "get ovr it"??
Karen Webster
Dude, I hear you. Free a young, black man early if she can get out in 5 yrs. BS to sentence a black person to 10 yrs in prison for selling a gram of pot.

The family had a right to hug her the judge did not. When my uncle was murdered my grandmother went to the murderer and told him she forgave him and would pray for him.
