Another of our innocent CHILDREN/MEN, 26-year-old Botham Jean, was shot and killed Thursday by a Dallas police officer in Jean's own apartment. Officer Amber Guyger, returning home from a 15-hour shift, reportedly mistook his apartment for hers and shot him in the chest.

Guyger, on the force for nearly five years, was arrested Sunday and charged with manslaughter.
