Why This Hug With Amber Guyger Is Being Commended and Criticized
It was the hug that shocked the nation, and it is being both praised and chastised on social media. The brother of Botham Jean stunned the country when he asked the Texas judge Wednesday afternoon if he could hug the cop who killed his sibling. As Amber Guyger was sentenced to 10 years behind bars for the slaying of Botham, his brother, Brandt, showed compassion that left the courtroom in tears. He asked to hug Guyger, insisting that is what his brother, a devout Christian, would have wanted.
