Only a week after Botham Shem Jean was shot and killed by off-duty police officer Amber Guyer, the efforts to make him look remotely deserving of his tragic death have commenced. 

On Thursday, FOX 4 News reported that a search warrant led investigators to find marijuana in Jean's apartment, the same residence Guyer claimed she believed was hers which allegedly drove her to kill him. According to Fox, the release of the document became public on the same day of his funeral, leaving his family disgusted and outraged. 

“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,” said Lee Merritt, an attorney for Jean’s family. “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.”

Those who pay attention to the cycle are all too familiar with this rodeo. Although recreational marijuana is legal in nine states and medical marijuana is legal in 30, it's an obvious tactic to criminalize him.

“This is nothing but a disgusting attempt to assassinate the character of a wonderful young man,” Ben Crump, another attorney for the Jean family, added. 

The sentiments of Jean's family and attorneys have been mirrored throughout social media since the nonsensical report.

Despite the attempt at assassinating Jean's character, he is remembered as a well-respected man with an esteemed reputation.

Rest in power, Botham.
