Is there a possibility that Joshua Brown was shot to death by a Dallas police officer in vengeance for being a witness?

That sent Amber Guyger to jail for ten years?

There are no coincidences.

Is he the same neighbor that video taped her as she paced outside the apartment after she murdered a man? If so, it was reported at some point that he had received death threats for recording her and had to move.
So I do think it is in connection to the trial.

It sounds as though the cart is before the horse here somewhat…

Anything is possible, but nothing that I have read indicates that might be the case. At the same time, I wouldn’t be shocked to read that as tomorrow mornings headlines

Seems like that should’ve been done before he testified.

@elbanditoroso I assume you mean that Joshua Brown was shot by someone else (some other police officer) other than Officer Guyger? (I’m sorry, but your question wasn’t too clear…)

I think it was just coincidence.

I suspect he was killed in retaliation, by the police.

I have to say. When I first read the article, I thought it could have been some type of retaliation.
Brown allegedly, had no enemies, no relationships with criminals, and was a stand up guy. It makes little sense, he would be ambushed, and shot to death. Unless, it was a case if mistaken identity.

It would be a shame, if the officer that killed him, ended up dead in prison… She’ll be eligible for parole, in 5 years. She murdered a man, in his own home… For nothing…. Her sentence, should have been harsher…

Normally I’m not a conspiracy theory guy. But this one seems fishy.

Most likely. The thin blue line doesn’t like to be held accountable.

I’m going to suspend judgement until some facts surface. I have my suspicions though.

Demosthenes's avatar

Looks like it was a far more routine killing: a drug deal gone wrong.

@Demosthenes—I read the article. I’m not convinced. If Brown was a druggie, would have have testified in the trial? Doubt it. He would have had nothing to do with the police or the prosecutor.

Something doesn’t add up here.

I am with @elbanditoroso . “Drug deal gone wrong” is a common explanation for people of color that run afoul of the police.

Details in the Times today say he had a prior conviction for drugs and something for robbery.

He was a reluctant witness.

I’ll link it.
