I suspect the officer's rendition of the events is all bullshit.
Could be.

Investigators literally have the key to proving whether the Dallas cop who killed Botham Jean lied to cover-up her murder. In fact, they have both of them.

The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office obtained permission to analyze data on the electronic keys to the apartment front doors of Officer Amber Guyger and Jean, the Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday afternoon.

Guyger and Jean lived in the same apartment complex. The officer claimed that she walked into Jean’s home by mistake and shot him thinking that he was an intruder in her own apartment. Data retrieved from the keys could indicate if Jean’s door was ajar, as the officer claimed. She fired two shots, killing the 26-year-old Black man.

Several neighbors have told attorneys for Jean’s family that they heard someone banging on the victim’s door and a woman’s voice demanding to enter his apartment. Data from the keys could also indicate if Jean’s door was locked.
The video at the link shows the doors close automatically and wouldn't likely be ajar.

Also, the guy had a bright red doormat in front of his door. It was kind a hard to miss.

Hell Forms Bobsled Team After Police Chief Admits Fault In SWAT Raid Targeting Wrong Address
Something that happens far too often -- police officers raiding the wrong house in search of criminals -- has resulted in national headlines.
A police search warrant team going after a drug dealer targeted the wrong address and burst into the apartment of an innocent resident who shot and wounded two officers believing they were home invaders, Prince George’s law enforcement officials said.
It has been greeted by something that almost never happens.
Police Chief Hank Stawinski apologized for the error Thursday and said he has halted executing search warrants until the department reviews how it corroborates information to confirm addresses and the location of investigative targets.
There's more. No charges will be filed against the man who shot two officers. The police chief said the man ambushed in his own home was a "law-abiding citizen." Beyond that, he called the warrant itself into question, along with the information used to obtain it.

:snippity:
This is an astounding reaction to incidents that are far too commonplace in this country. This is also an indictment of policing in America. There is no reason this reaction should be as stunning as it is. This should be standard operating procedure when cops screw up.

Texas Cops Seize Anti-GOP Sign From Homeowner's Lawn
Stupid unconstitutional stuff is happening in Texas. "Again?" I hear you ask, irritated but not surprised. "Yes," I repeat. "In Texas, and involving local politicians and law enforcement." "Again?" I hear you say (again) and the circle of commentary life continues uninterrupted.
Image
As one does in this age of social media telegraphy, outraged parties brought this to the attention of a local politician with a sizable following -- Texas Ag Commissioner Sid Miller -- who dumped his own petrol on the partisan bonfire by posting it to Facebook and calling it an example of "Democrat sleaze." He also claimed the picture was supposed to be "Judge Kavanaugh's young daughter" -- a claim made without supporting evidence but with the amplification of 738,000 Facebook followers.

Shortly thereafter, Marion Stanford began receiving threats. Unfortunately, this is the predictable part of the backlash. Stanford also received a visit from local law enforcement, which was a bit less predictable. But they weren't there about the threats. They were there about the sign, as the Dallas Morning News reports.
Tuesday evening, she said, police came to her house and said they had received complaints.

“Police told me to remove the sign or they would take it and would arrest me,” Stanford said. “So I let them take the sign.”

A Staten Island man with health issues was brutally punched and tased in his family’s home by police responding to a 911 call, his family and attorney say.

Police responded to the Staten Island home of William Colon, 24, on Sept. 28 after a neighbor who heard Colon and his girlfriend arguing called 911.

Video taken by Colon’s brother shows officers punching and tasing Colon — who suffers from several diabetic-related health conditions, stands at around 4-foot-8 and weighs approximately 85 pounds — as he lies face down on a bed.

Colon was only told later that he’d been arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, his attorney Christopher Pisciotta, of the Legal Aid Society, said.

Lake County police officers have been allowed to call for rides home after being pulled over

Waukegan Officer Daniel Ramirez was pulled over Nov. 12, 2017, by Libertyville police for speeding and blew a .17, police said. He was allowed to call an Uber to take him home. The following dash cam video has been edited for length by the Tribune. Additionally, separate audio from a police phone call made during the stop was added to the video and edited for length.

News-Sun
police allowed a officer to call for a ride home even though he registered a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit during an early morning traffic stop, video and audio recordings obtained by the Lake County News-Sun show.

The case is the third example of law enforcement officers in Lake County allowing fellow officers in 2017 to get a ride home and have their vehicles moved for safekeeping rather than face a tow after being pulled over or found passed out behind the wheel, according to records obtained through a request.

East Cleveland officer found intoxicated while on the job, city leaders question accountability

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio - Some East Cleveland city leaders and residents are concerned about the accountability of their police force, after finally discovering one of their officers was arrested and convicted for being intoxicated while on the job, back in December 2017.

Concerned resident Justyn Anderson told News 5 he only found about the case after he said Bratenahl Police gave him police body camera video of the arrest of East Cleveland detective Joseph Marche, while Anderson was making a public records request on another issue in July.

Anderson said the video was eventually posted on YouTube and shows the difficulty Bratenahl police encountered in arresting Marche.

Police said Marche was found highly intoxicated and slumped over the wheel of an unmarked city vehicle, while working on a stakeout for the East Cleveland Police Department.

Police report they had to break out two windows to make an arrest, and found a loaded automatic weapon in Marche's city vehicle.

Good. That situation really bothered me.

Harnett deputy suspended after teen assaulted while recording arrest

Posted 2:42 p.m. Tuesday
Updated 7:54 p.m. Tuesday
By Amanda Lamb, WRAL reporter

LILLINGTON, N.C. — A Harnett County deputy was placed on administrative leave on Tuesday, a day after a video was posted to Facebook showing him roughing up two girls who were recording an arrest on their cellphones.

The sheriff's office said the deputy, whose name hasn't been released, and a second deputy were responding to a complaint about illegal drug activity on Winding Ridge, near the Spout Springs community. The first deputy on the scene saw a vehicle and a man matching the descriptions provided by a caller and smelled marijuana coming from inside the car as he approached, authorities said.

Four people in the car were detained, and the 17-year-old in the driver's seat, identified as Tyrese Namirr Gary, was charged with carrying a concealed gun and possession of a handgun by a minor, both misdemeanors.

A handgun was found under the driver's seat, and a small amount of marijuana was found on a girl inside the car, authorities said.

Brie Urban, 17, and her 14-year-old sister, Jewelianna Urban, started recording the arrest on their phones when one of the deputies grabs the phone from Jewelianna Urban and wrestles her to the ground when she resists.

Man hit by Taser by Independence cop awarded $6.5 million

By - Associated Press - Friday, December 14, 2018

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A federal jury has awarded $6.5 million to a man who was severely injured when an Independence police officer shot him with a Taser.

The Kansas City Star reports the jury returned the verdict Friday in a lawsuit filed by Bryce Masters against the former officer, 35-year-old Timothy Runnels.

Masters was 17 in 2014 when he was stopped for a traffic violation by Runnels.

Dash cam video shows Masters refusing to get out of the car. Runnels tried to pull him out before shooting Masters with a Taser for about 20 seconds, and Masters became unresponsive.

After Runnels dragged him out of the road and dropped him face first onto the pavement, Masters suffered a cardiac arrest.
