He actually hit a speed hump....

Police say one of their officers was going home after her shift when she walked into the wrong apartment and shot the man inside.

Amber Guyger, who is white, was off-duty when she shot Botham Shem Jean, a black man, in his apartment. Guyger told police she thought she was entering her own apartment not realizing she was on the wrong floor. Upon encountering Jean, she thought her home was being burglarized and opened fire, according to police.

One witness reported hearing a woman's voice saying, "Let me in! Let me in!" Then they heard gunshots, after which one witness said she heard a man's voice say, "Oh my God! Why did you do that?"

Been watching how this one unfolds.  My first thought was that it was an honest and tragic accident, but something's not right here.

Saw that.  First, the strategy is stupid.  Do they really think that finding pot is going to "smear" the victim?  No one, even those against legalization, cares about pot anymore and possession is certainly not cause for shooting someone.  Second, what does it have to do with anything?  The policewoman didn't know about it at the time, and (according to her story) didn't even know she was in the wrong apartment.  The dude could have had a dead guy in his back room, and it does not change her guilt whatsoever.  There's going to be a lawsuit, and this kind of stuff just gives his family more ammo.

Kind of a carefully choreographed tragic accident it looks like right now.

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

It's a strategy that sounds very, very familiar.

Investigators wasted no time in digging for dirt they could use to smear Jean's name. Within hours of Jean being shot, they asked a judge for a warrant to search his home for drugs, among other things.
"On the night that he was killed, the Dallas Police Department investigators were interested specifically in finding information that could help assassinate his character."
