    I just thought of something. She doesn't state after a million times of "I thought it was My Apartment" that it was "Dark" or "I was scared" "I couldn't see". So, what then...She came Home and thought someone Redecorated?. That bothers me.

    Fired Dallas police officer Amber Guyger appeared in court Thursday, her first time before the judge who will oversee her murder trial in the shooting death of Botham Jean.

    During a 12-minute hearing, state District Judge Tammy Kemp quizzed attorneys about the leaking of Guyger's 911 call after the shooting despite a gag order. In the call, Guyger sounds frantic about shooting Jean but also repeatedly mentions that she is going to lose her job as a police officer.

    The interior floor plan and exterior surroundings of each apartment are "identical" or "extremely similar" to each other, Armstrong wrote. Jean was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injury.

    Amber Guyger gunned down Botham Shem Jean in his own home back on Sept. 6. Her trial, which has been delayed several times, was rescheduled more than a year after the suspicious shooting. The 911 call was released in late April and Jean’s mother, Allison Jean, is now speaking out.

    According to an interview with Sight Magazine, Allison said she believed the 911 call was leaked to gain sympathy for Guyger. Jean also said, “Listening to it, it sparked some anger within me because I’m not hearing the dispatcher pay much attention to him. I didn’t hear the dispatcher ask about his condition, whether he was breathing, whether he was responsive…And I’m wondering whether it was because it was a police-involved shting that the victim didn’t matter.”
    The 911 dispatcher only seemed to be concerned about Guyger and she only sounded worried about losing her job.

    On the call, Guyger can be heard breathing heavily and cursing in between telling the operator what she had done. Guyger openly says several times that she’s probably going to lose her job.

    “I’m f*cked,” she said at one point during the call before later adding, “I’m going to lose my job.”

    After asking the operator to send a “supervisor,” Guyger kept repeating, “I thought it was my apartment.”

    Guyger says later in the call that “I’m so tired.”

    Listen to the full 911 call below. There is graphic language used.

    The leaked 911 call came one week after it was reported that people who Guyger arrested while she was a police officer were having their cases dismissed. Citing court documents, the Dallas News reported that “Dallas County prosecutors in one case wrote that they were seeking the dismissal because the fired officer was ‘indicted for murdering an innocent man in his own home.’”

    WFAA said that it “obtained the recording after months of reporting,” but it could have been leaked by Guyger’s defense attorneys, or even her former colleagues at the Dallas Police Department, looking to curry favor with potential jurors in her murder trial. The 911 call has not been officially released by any law enforcement agency.

    On Sept. 6, Guyger said that following a long day on the job as a Dallas police officer, she implausibly mistook his apartment for her own and, after ordering Jean not to move, shot him twice before realizing the error of her ways. Her story was met with doubt because of a number of factors, especially her assertion that Jean’s door was ajar. Videos posted on social media by neighbors appeared to show that apartment doors in the building shut automatically, which seemed to indicate that Guyger was lying.

    In addition to the inconsistencies in her alibis, which have changed several times, Dallas police, of which Guyger was a member for five years before being fired, appeared to be helping to cover up the shooting for their colleague. The department was accused of allowing Guyger enough time to scrub her social media accounts and get her story straight before turning herself in three days after killing Jean. It also gave Guyger enough time to move out of her apartment, which was never searched by police despite five warrantsallowing them to do so.

    Judge Furious over Leaking of 911 Call from Dallas Cop after Killing Botham Jean

    In the seconds after Dallas police officer Amber Guyger shot and killed a man inside his own apartment last year, she called 911 and expressed concern that she would lose her job instead of perform CPR on him.

    But that revelation was only made public because someone possibly from within the Dallas Police Department leaked the audio clip to the media back in April in defiance of a judicial gag order.

    Furious over the leak and the disregard of her rule, Texas District Judge Tammy Kemp called a hearing Thursday to get to the bottom of it as well as set the date for jury selection for Guyger's murder trial, which was set for September 6, the first anniversary of Botham Jean's death.

    "I'm going to ask the media should you be contacted by someone who doesn't have the integrity or fortitude to abide by the law to decline to publish any information that they might have provided to you," Kemp said.

    Amber Guyger's attorneys want her murder trial for killing Botham Jean moved out of Dallas

    Amber Guyger's attorneys want her murder trial for killing Botham Jean moved out of Dallas, citing "media hysteria" surrounding the fatal shooting of Botham Jean.

    Guyger's attorneys, Robert Rogers, Toby Shook and Michael Mowla, argued in their court filing that the "publicity surrounding this case has been prejudicial and inflammatory." Jean's death was international news, and area media outlets published a stream of stories after his death. Guyger's attorneys cited 297 articles about Guyger and Jean in their motion.

    Whether potential jurors are qualified to sit on the jury isn't about whether they've heard about the shooting or even whether they know Jean or Guyger's name. To serve, jurors can't have an opinion about Guyger's guilt or innocence.

    The trial is scheduled to start Sept. 23. Jury selection is slated to begin on the first anniversary of Jean's death.
