On September 14, protesters in Dallas shut down highway I-30 in response to a search warrant attempting to criminalize 26-year-old Botham Jean, who was killed by officer Amber Guyger, according to WFAA 8.

Following a report from local news outlet FOX 4, community activists and lawyers representing Jean's family have voiced their disappointment about the media's reporting on the search warrant. Officers reportedly found marijuana in his apartment after his death. But, as Twitter users mentioned, the finding had nothing to do with the shooting.

Guyger claimed she mistook his apartment for her own and shot Jean believing he was an intruder. Witness accounts have disputed claims made in her affidavit.  

In a reported quote by Fox 4, Lee Merritt, an attorney for Jean’s family, said, “I think it’s unfortunate that law enforcement begins to immediately criminalize the victim — in this case, someone who was clearly the victim, that has absolutely no bearing on the fact that he was shot in his home.”

The attorney added, “I would love to see more information coming out about the warrants executed on the home of the shooter who lived just below him. I haven’t seen any of those. And particularly for it to be on this day the day that we remember and celebrate him… to see the common assassination attempt on the victim that we often see in law enforcement-involved shootings.”

NBC Dallas Fort Worth reports before protesters stopped traffic on I-30, they peacefully took to the streets, demanding that authorities charge Guyger for murder instead of manslaughter.

This is one of many protests that have overtaken the city of Dallas since the September 6 shooting.
