Amber Guyger, the Dallas police officer who shot her neighbor to death after entering his apartment thinking it was his own, has been found guilty of murder.
From Washington Post:
The prosecution cast Guyger as careless and negligent — armed, distracted and too quick to pull the trigger. The state's lawyers called her defense "garbage" and "absurd."
They said a reasonable person would have noticed the illuminated apartment numbers that read 1478, rather than 1378, and would have seen Jean's red doormat. She wasn't paying attention, prosecutors said, because too caught up in a sexually explicit conversation she was having with her partner on the police force.
"I mean, my God," said Jason Fine, the Dallas County Assistant District Attorney. "This is crazy."
