#LyinTed Ted Cruz likes to talk about this whole Kaepernik/Anthem issue, wants to make it into a wedge to divide Texans. #LyinTed and his ally Trump are desperate to make this about disrespecting the flag, the military, veterans, the United States.…
#LyinTed may bring this up in the debate tonight. He will try to paint @BetoORourke as a far-left radical, out of touch with Texans. But here's the thing. Most veterans know that these protests are not disrespectful of America or what we stand for.
@VeteransForBeto strongly believe that all Americans have an absolute right to protest injustice. And the continuing police killings of African-American men and boys continues, most recently right here in Texas, in Dallas, with the killing of #BothamJean by a Dallas cop.

Let me better explain this to you.

Hours after a stranger shot #BothamJean IN HIS APARTMENT, police got a search warrant to search HIS APARTMENT.

They began their investigation into HIS MURDER by searching through HIS belongings.
American Police are fundamentally INCAPABLE of policing and investigating themselves.
In his 26 years on earth, Botham Jean NEVER had a single ticket, a single arrest, a single conviction, or even a single behavioral note in college.

Not one. Ever.

How dare police and the media attempt to insult his character and integrity today.

Fuck the @DallasPD and fuck @Fox4 for rolling with this headline.

#BothamJean is the VICTIM.

He was shot and killed in his own apartment.


Why is Botham being treated like the perpetrator of a crime here?
I've written nearly 1,500 articles on injustice in America. Let me tell you 1 essential thing I've learned.

More times than not, local TV stations, like @Fox4 in Dallas, have such close relationships w/ police departments that they function like police propaganda machines.
BREAKING: Since authorities searched the apartment of murder victim #BothamJean & released the results I just asked them for the results of the warrant of Amber Guyger's home -since she was the perpetrator.

Guess what they said?


They NEVER searched her home!

SHORT THREAD/ Amber Guyger's social media accounts have been pulled offline (and so have those of her family), but @BarrettBrown_ and @HeavySan grabbed them...

.@NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch says Americans must always be armed and ready to shoot anyone who enters their home, including police. The @NRA has pushed pass state bills allowing citizens to shoot anyone illegally entering a home or car, including police.
The @NRA also has a long history of victim blaming: "This could have been very different if #BothamJean had been a law abiding gun owner. ...this could have been very different had he actually had a firearm on him. She might have been the one carried out," Dana Loesch
Reminder that Loesch and the @NRA advocate for stripping mandatory training out of state gun laws and oppose requiring background checks on private gun sales, making their advice - meant to sell guns - a recipe for citizens unintentionally shooting family members and neighbors.

Lee Meritt says he had one demand: "We want to know why that person is not in handcuffs yet." DA couldn't answer that question, he said. #BothamJean #BothamShemJean
Meritt says he brought new evidence to the DA. An interview was done that he thinks will lead to #AmberGuyger being charged. Merritt said for that reason, he's not going to release that information to the public right now. #BothamJean #BothamShemJean
Remember: Dallas Chief Hall said on Fri that at her request, a warrant would be issued charging #AmberGuyger with manslaughter. On Sat, she said the Texas Rangers, who are handling the investigation, asked that a warrant be held while they investigate #BothamJean #BothamShemJean

#BothamJean was murdered in his apartment by a white woman police officer whose name I've yet to see in print. Ok, press. Protect her identity as long as possible even though she entered the wrong apartment, pulled her gun and shot a man minding his own damn business.
By all accounts, a very good man who was minding his own damn business. #BothamJean earned a bachelor's degree from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. There's a reason you've never heard of it--it's a tiny private Christian college run by the Church of Christ.
And if you've never heard of THAT denomination, well, how can I explain the church I grew up in? Imagine the Puritans--stoic, sober and austere in their worship and expression, in their decorum. #BothamJean attended one of the few CoC unis in the US, on purpose.
