About damn time.
Amber Guyger, the Dallas police officer who shot and killed a man in his own home, has been terminated from her duties, according to a statement Dallas Police Chief Ulysha Renee Hall.
Guyger was fired earlier Monday.

According to CNN, the Hall (the police chief) said the reason she took too long was because “she had to consider Ms. Guyger’s Fifth Amendment protections specifically so that her termination action wouldn’t compromise the criminal matter and lead to, really, the criminal allegations being thrown out altogether”.
If you remember, Hall previously said there was a law that kept her from firing the cop. Seems like she changed her tune with this latest explanation.
While Allison Jean (Botham Jean’s mother) was relieved by the news of Guyger’s termination, calling it a “satisfactory solution,” the family would still like to see Guyger indicted on a murder charge, Merritt said. Guyger is currently being charged for manslaughter.
