She gave the former Dallas police officer her Bible, telling her "this is your job for the next month".

Guyger, 31, was convicted this week of murder in the death of the 26-year-old Jean, who was eating ice cream and watching football last September when Guyger entered his apartment and fatally shot him. She told police she thought his apartment was her own and that he was an intruder.

Brandt expressed forgiveness for the woman who killed his brother and embraced her in court. "That is why I wake up happy in the morning".

Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

"We understand that it was an emotional moment, particularly when the victim's brother, Brandt Jean, publicly forgave and hugged Guyger", wrote the FFRF officials.

"You can't compare this case to any of those other officers killing unarmed black men".

In an expected but infuriating move, the Freedom From Religion organization filed a complaint against the Texas judge who left the bench to give police offer Amber Guyger her personal Bible. "She showed remorse and that she's going to have to deal with that for the rest of her life".

Kemp "was in a government courtroom, dressed in a judicial robe, with all of the imprimatur of the state, including armed law enforcement officers, preaching to someone who was quite literally a captive audience, and even instructing her on which bible verses to read", the complaint said. She presented the Bible to the convicted murderer. Jean was on the couch, watching TV and eating ice cream when Guyger walked in, prosecutors said.

"I love you just like anyone else and I'm not gonna say I hope you rot and die, just like my brother did, but I personally want the best for you", he said, noting that he was not speaking for his whole family. "On the other hand, I think the principle is an important one where it really would be useful to have some guidance for the courts", he said.

A tweet from the Dallas Police Department's Twitter account said, "Botham Jean's brother's request to hug Amber Guyger and Judge Kemp's gift of her bible to Amber represent a spirit of forgiveness, faith and trust". And with usual instances... the words only, they mean something.

"That was just my gesture -my decision of saying of letting her know that I truly forgave her".

"Each and every one has steps to get towards actually forgiving". I went through those faster than others.

The hug between Kemp and Guyger prompted criticism on-line, together with by some who accused the decide of undermining her credibility together with her act of compassion and sending a misguided "hug it out and forgive" message amid the broadly publicized trial. She still deserves love. "She made a mistake that she probably truly regrets", he opined. Because we know it is ridiculously insane for one black person after another, in our America, to be gunned down, simply because they are black, because there is a paralyzing fear and blind assumption that said black person will harm you, because you have been so contaminated with the belief that black people are, well, monsters. "I'd like to become your friend at some point", he said about Guyger. Everyone agrees the judge conducted the trial admirably, so I think this is a poor choice of test case.
