Amber Guyger, a former police officer who was found guilty on Tuesday of murder for killing a man who she believed was an intruder after entering the wrong apartment in her building, received 10 years in prison today for her crime.
While many critics are angry with the jury for giving Guyger what they believe is a light sentence, the brother of the murder victim embraced her following the verdict and offered her his love and forgiveness while asking her to dedicate her life to Jesus Christ.
The clip can be seen here:
Brandt Jean, whose brother Botham was shot to death in his apartment on Sept. 6, 2018 by Guyger, told her on the stand that “I love you like anyone else” and then made his compassionate display following her sentencing.
“I know if you go to God and ask him, he will forgive you,” Jean said to Guyger on the witness stand.
“I personally want the best for you. I wasn’t going to say this in front of my family, I don’t even want you to go to jail. I want the best for you because I know that’s exactly what Botham would want for you. Give your life to Christ. I think giving your life to Christ is the best thing Botham would want for you,” he added.
Jean’s mother, Allison, says she will now try her best to move on from this tragedy that changed her life and her family’s life forever.
“That 10 years in prison is for her (Guyger) to reflect and to change her life,” Allison Jean said. “But there is much more to be done by the city of Dallas. The corruption we saw during this trial must stop. The city of Dallas needs to clean up inside. The Dallas Police Department has a lot of laundry to do. The Texas Rangers need to get on board.”
“His (Botham’s) privacy was violated. She intruded on him and that was not enough. She killed him,” she added. “If Amber Guyger was trained not to shoot in the heart, my son would be standing here today.”
However, some of the onlookers were not as willing to accept the jury’s decision as the Jean family. Some of their supporters outside of the courtroom chanted “No justice, no peace!” and saw the verdict as an unfair “slap in the face.”
Dallas County Assistant District Attorney LaQuita Long argued to the jury that Guyger should have received at least 28 years in prison, while bringing up the fact that Jean would have just turned 28-years-old on Sunday if he hadn’t been killed.
“The only reason we all sit in this courtroom today is because of her actions,” said Long, pointing to Guyger seated at the defense table. “And for her actions, there must be consequences.”
Guyger could have been sentenced to up to 99 years in prison if the jury gave her the maximum sentence. Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot found nothing improper with the jury’s decision.
“I expected perhaps longer, but I respect what they did,” Creuzot said outside of the courtroom. He also called Brandt Jean’s gesture to Guyger “an extraordinary act of healing and forgiveness.”
In an era that is becoming defined by callousness and cruelty, Brandt Jean has set an incredible example for how faith in Christ can foster strength and heal the world.
SATURDAY 9/26: Franklin Graham’s ‘Prayer March’ in Washington D.C. Aims to Revive Christianity to Unite Americans
The truth of Christ is desperately needed in the hearts of Americans.
Renowned pastor Franklin Graham is set to hold his Prayer March 2020 on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 12pm to 2pm at the Lincoln Memorial during a time in which national unity is desperately needed.
“America is in trouble. Our communities are hurting, our people are divided, and there’s fear and uncertainty all around us. Let’s join together and do the most important thing: pray!” Graham announced on the group’s website.
The 1.8-mile march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial then continue through the World War II Memorial. The Christians will then make their way to the Washington Monument over to the National Museum of American History & Culture and then to the National Archives before ending at the U.S. Capitol.
“Prayer is our most important weapon. It allows us to go directly to the King of Kings, directly to stand in front of the throne of grace, and make our petitions directly to the throne of God,” Graham said in a video promoting the march.
Because of the marxist Black Lives Matter terror movement and the COVID-19 scamdemic, religious freedom in America is under attack like never before.
Big League Politics has reported on how churches are getting fined for merely holding in-person services, which is heinously unconstitutional and makes a mockery of the 1st Amendment:
Over the past week, North Valley Baptist Church in Santa Clara, California has amassed $15,000 in fines for holding church gatherings.
Christianity Daily noted that the church’s move violated the county’s health order and “It was the largest corona virus related fines levied in Santa Clara County.”
On August 23, 2020, the county slapped the church with two $5,000 fines for holding services indoor during the morning and evening. The church was fined again $5,000 for conducting another service in-person.
On the church’s door, there was a cease-and-desist letter posted, which explained that “North Valley Baptist was in violation of the health order for holding indoor services, failing to ensure mask-wearing and social distancing indoors, singing during services and failing to submit a social distancing protocol.”
The $5000 fine in question is the highest possible financial penalty for businesses that violate the Wuhan virus health order that Santa Clara county implemented earlier in August. Counsel James Williams remarked that “the county has avoided issuing fines in favor of working with businesses to bring them into compliance.”
Local governments across the nation are exploiting the Wuhan virus pandemic to implement policies that undermine the right to peaceful gatherings and certain forms of social activity that individuals on the right or organizations that uphold traditional values tend to participate in.
The founders of Black Lives Matter have been explicit about their marxist intentions. They hope to not just inflict racial dominance over white people, but also to destroy the capitalist system and impose a tyranny on America that resulted in the gruesome murders of tens of millions of Christians worldwide.

Only the blood of Christ can re-purify the American nation, which has drifted into secularism and may experience damnation as a result. The Prayer March could be the stop of America’s slide into Sodom and Gomorrah.
