Amber Guyger's lawyer says she was fired prematurely and unfairly
Created : 25 September 2018
The attorney for a white Dallas police officer charged in the fatal shooting of her black neighbor in the man's own apartment says his client's firing was premature and unfair.
Robert Rogers, who represents the fired officer, Amber Guyger, said in a statement Monday night that Police Chief U. Renee Hall buckled under "pressure from anti-police groups" and acted "before all of the facts had been gathered and due process was afforded."
It was Rogers' first statement since the Sept. 6 shooting of 26-year-old Botham Jean.
