The Fox headline and the promotion that marijuana was seized at Jean's apartment recalls the many instances where irrelevant information has been spread about black men and children after they have been shot by police as a means of casting doubt on their victimhood.

"It had a specific goal in mind", Merritt said. Secondly, there is no indication that a similar warrant was issued for Guyger since she lived in the apartment below Jean.

Officer Amber Guyger is charged with manslaughter in the shooting and is free on bond.

But experts on police training and psychologists are split on the credibility of Officer Amber Guyger's story.

But, he said, "I've lost faith in the Dallas Police Department and their investigators". A judge authorized police to search for guns, fired cartridge casings, trace evidence such as blood, video surveillance and also "any contraband, such as narcotics", according to the affidavit for a search warrant, which the Fort Worth Star-Telegram posted online.

Lawyers for 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean said police were trying to "criminalise the victim".

His family said they were "assassinating his character".

The attorney and Jean's family also were upset that the news that marijuana was found became public on the same day that his funeral was being held.

"The taint on the investigation from the beginning was exposed through that warrant and through that content".

The affidavit claims Guyger only realized she was in the wrong apartment when 911 dispatchers asked for the location of the shooting.

O'Donnell said it would require a full investigation to determine all the factors that went into her shooting Jean, and that one or two details could make a difference.

In the case of Eric Garner, who was fatally strangled by police in NY in 2014, police and subsequently the news media frequently emphasized that Garner was accused of illegally selling individual cigarettes prior to the fatal encounter and that he had a history of arrests, the researchers noted.

Guyger told investigators she mistook Jean's apartment for her own, which is right below his, and that upon entering the dark home, she believed she had encountered an intruder and shot him when he didn't obey her verbal commands.

It is time that we recognise that lives matter. "My son's life mattered".

"So I'm calling on the Dallas officials. whoever it is, please, come clean, give me justice for my son because he does not deserve what he got".

FOX 4 News in Dallas released breaking news on Twitter Thursday night about the man shot to death in his own apartment by a cop who wandered in allegedly under the impression it was her apartment. Inside, the lights were off, and she saw a figure in the darkness that cast a large silhouette across the room, according to the officer's account. He described Jean's death as an avoidable tragedy and said the group wants to know why Guyger has not been fired.
