First, the city will publish trial details and information on the 1,100 pending internal cases, which are prosecuted by the department’s oversight agency, the Civilian Complaint Review Board, the mayor said.

    Amber Guyger’s killing of Botham Shem Jean is an unspeakable tragedy. It also highlights the need for officers like Guyger to face impartial justice.

This is what we know so far. Jean was home alone in his apartment in the South Side Flats complexin Dallas when police officer Amber Guyger entered and shot him dead. The precise chain of events is...
