She has worked with the Dallas Police Department for four years and was involved in another shooting in May 2017. In that incident, Guyger shot a suspect she said was reaching for another officer's Taser during a struggle. He survived, and she wasn't charged.
Guyger hasn't been charged for this shooting either, and the family of her victim, Botham Jean, has argued she is receiving special treatment as a cop. Guyger is white, and Jean — like a disproportionate number of people killed by police in America — was black.
"This family is frustrated," said their attorney, Lee Merritt. "This family is grieving that [an arrest] has not happened yet. We believe the fact that that has not happened yet is a reflection on deferential treatment for law enforcement officers." Bonnie Kristian
