A police affidavit shows that among other items, officers seized 10.4 grams of marijuana and a marijuana grinder from Jean's apartment.
"This adds absolutely nothing of value for solving this crime. In this situation, the officer allowed her fear to influence her decision-making and it cost an innocent man his life".
Mulder and other legal experts say investigators would not want to risk evidence being thrown out because they did not include it in the search warrant.
Another attorney for the Jean family, Darryl Washington, said "there is no question this officer should have been terminated".
Civil rights groups and activists have been outraged by the news. "The man was minding his own business in his home when an intruder tried to break in and then killed him".
The fatal shooting happened at the South Side Flats in Dallas, where Guyger and Jean both lived.
New York Times Magazine reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones called the framing of the story as "unethical". "The officer that killed him should be the one being evaluated", one person wrote. This is unethical. Period.
Remember, the murder conviction of fired police officer Roy Oliver in the death of Jordan Edwards? It's one thing when police do it to protect themselves, it's quite another when the people who are supposed to be the watchdogs of power become complicit.
In response to the shooting and subsequent events, dozen of protesters marched Friday night from the Dallas Police Department on South Lamar Street north, toward the Dallas Morning News, FOX 4, and WFAA buildings downtown, according to ABC News affiliate WFAA. He has been writing for Rolling Out since 2014. "A neighbor stated he heard an exchange of words, immediately followed by at least two gun shots".
The arrest affidavit for Guyger, filed by a Texas Ranger and based off of Guyger's version of events, claims Guyger "inserted a unique door key, with an electronic chip, into the door key hole".
Guyger shot a suspect in the abdomen in 2017 after he had taken her Taser away from her in a struggle. She said Jean ignored her verbal commands, and she fired two shots, hitting him once in the torso, the affidavit said. However, it is not clear yet whether the door was unlocked or ajar.
A CNN team visited Jean's apartment Friday, where a small memorial of flowers and a photo with his mother adorn the front door. "My son's life matters". The discovery of pot in Jean's home is "completely irrelevant", he points out to KXAS.
