1 Arrested, 2 Wanted in Deadly Shooting of Amber Guyger Trial Witness

https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Update-Expected-in-Deadly-Shooting-of-Amber-Guyger-Trial-Witness-562538901.html?akmobile=o

One man is in custody and two others are wanted in connection with the deadly shooting of the man who testified in the Amber Guyger murder trial.

Joshua Brown, 28, was shot multiple times Friday night at the Atera apartments on Cedar Springs Road, near the Dallas North Tollway and Lemmon Avenue. He died later that night at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

On Tuesday, police said the shooting stemmed from a drug deal between Brown and three suspects who had traveled to Texas from Louisiana.

One man is in custody, police said. Two others — Thaddeous Charles Green and Michael Diaz Mitchell — remain on the run.


Wow, some criminals killed the guy, NOT the Dallas Police Department.



Looks like a big dish of crow is in order for some people.

1. Drug deal, huh?

OK. Must have been a big one for three people to travel that far.

It's not like that's never been used before.

I would like a skepticism emoji.

One to watch.

6. As a matter of fact it was a big deal.

https://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/ny-arrest-warrants-joshua-brown-murder-20191008-d7r56laxubdmxfcs2ynit4ee2q-story.html

Investigators say they confiscated 12 pounds of marijuana, 149 grams of THC cartridges and $4,157 in cash at Brown’s apartment.


And he shot one of them, before they shot and killed him.

2. When you hear hoof beats,

The smart bet is horses, not zebras.

In this case it turned out to be zebras. But based on the evidence available, I understand why "horses" looked like a better bet.

9. I think you'll find it actually was horses in this case.

You just couldn't tell your horses from your zebras. This whole discussion was an embarrassment here.

12. What evidence?

The only so called “evidence” was the proximity of the trial and his death.

Nothing else.

13. The timing of the trial and the murder

is enough to make the speculation that they might be linked reasonable.

I'll need evidence that it was actually a bad drug deal (on edit: so far all we have is the police saying so.) Without some concrete evidence I'm still inclined to suspect police protecting/avenging their sister in uniform.

Such is the reputation of American police, especially in the south.

18. Actually, if he had been killed BEFORE he ....

... testified, it would have fit the “cops did it” theory better. Cops risking getting caught killing a witness after he has already testified makes little sense - especially after the trial was concluded. No intimidation motive. Just retribution? That’s a stretch.

25. I have not seen that - but I'm sure ...

... one is filed or will be filed.

However, the police officers themselves really don’t care much about a civil action. At least not nearly as much as the insurance company involved.

Is it possible he was murdered by the cops in retaliation for testifying? Or to shut him up for future testimony? Or to intimidate others from ever going against the cops? Sure.

But is it likely? Probably not. Just my opinion.

3. No crow is in order

People being suspicious when a witness is shot dead within days after testifying in a high profile, highly charged case is hardly unreasonable.

5. It might be suspicious

 

if the witness was murdered before testifying.


But, one would assume that all DUers would be happy to learn that the police aren't the murderers.

Last edited Tue Oct 8, 2019, 11:38 PM - Edit history (1)

I was very suspicious, although I didn't share my suspicions online since I don't think that's helpful either way before we have more facts.

ON EDIT: I've read more about this and the official story doesn't add up for me.

17. No link?

 



Also, there's this from the source in the OP:
Brown had had reservations about testifying in such a high-profile trial because he had been wounded in a shooting last year.


Seems bullets were attracted to this guy.

4. I hate to say "I told you so..."

Oh heck. I do like saying I told you so.

Right away, a bunch of people here jumped on to the haywagon head first, and didn't bother to look if there was a haying fork in the wagon.

(Old Wisconsin farmers' saying..)

"It's a conspiracy of cops!"

No.

Drug deal gone bad.

8. I suspect there will be no one in line

At the crow buffet.

If history holds, there will be some who double down and will claim the police hired these men to be assassins or other conspiracy theories. Otherwise, like the recent hair cutting story, most will simply choose to ignore their statements of what was "obvious".

You won't need much more than a thumb to count those who will admit to jumping to a conclusion.

10. Is the crow for the self-righteous pointing fingers?

Or is the crow simply for people who guessed wrong... that guess leading to zero measurable consequences?




I'm guessing the former would find MUCH more nutrition from it, despite it being implicitly targeted towards the latter in a rather craven style of hipper-than-thou passive-aggression.




Good work pointing fingers... try the duck sauce.

Yeah, that sounds legit.

29. No need. People will buy the most outlandish excuse

when a black person is killed. Nothing is too outrageous. Whether it's believing that Hurricane Katrina victims were shooting down helicopters (as they were drowning and/or dying of thirst) or that an 80 year old woman posed a genuine threat to the police officers who killed her in her own home.

Had Joshua been a white guy and the same thing happened, there'd be no question of what occurred. But because he's black, everyone's willing to believe that he died in a drug deal. Proof? He's been shot before, so it must be true! GMAFB! That's how rogue police officers continue to get away with their crimes.
