Live-tweeting the #DemocraticDebate.

Just distracted by gunfire and police cars and now helicopters I can hear from my window in what appears to be a nearby Brooklyn neighborhood.

(I'm downtown and very high up and can see and hear what's happening a few neighborhoods away.)
Biden definitely not prepared for the question about whether it was proper for his son to be doing business in the Ukraine WHILE he was vice-president.
Senator Senators looks great. Better than he has at past debates. Rested. #DemocraticDebate

There’s been a lot of talk about #Forgiveness in the African American community.

Many are calling it “conditioning” by our society, and something that should come to an end.

I hope these opinions don’t become a reality.

#AmberGuygerSentencing

If the actions of #BothamJean’s brother, the black officer, and the black judge, were somehow a form of “conditioning”— I wish all of us were conditioned to do the same.

#Forgiveness
#Forgiveness is not a shameful thing.

In fact, it’s something I’ve always admired about the African American community.

It’s just a shame that it’s always your community who’s put in the position of needing to forgive.

Let me tweet this again bc people are missing a few things when it comes to #BothamJean's family and this forgiveness.

~ Forgiveness does not mean Botham's mother doesn't believe #AmberGuyger's sentence shouldn't have been longer.

#AmberGuygerTrial #AmberGuygerSentencing 1/3
~ For some folks, forgiveness is done FOR YOUR OWN SAKE. It has NOTHING to do with the person and what they did.

~ Forgiveness and Accountability are not mutually exclusive

~ Mama #BothamJean ain't told nobody to do what she's chosen to do

~ FORGIVENESS IS NOT ABSOLUTION

2/3
~ #BothamJean's mother understands all of this about forgiveness because she walked out of that courtroom, stepped her forgiving soul to the mic AND DRAGGGGGGED THE DALLAS PD FOR CORRUPTION.

Yall HAVE GOT to get to a place where you can hold more complex thought. Jesus! 3/3

#AmberGuyger is a murdering liar being protected by the @DallasPD and the media, which is trying to depict Botham Jean, the VICTIM, as somehow responsible for his own death in his own apartment by an intruder killer cop.

Lee Meritt says he had one demand: "We want to know why that person is not in handcuffs yet." DA couldn't answer that question, he said. #BothamJean #BothamShemJean
Meritt says he brought new evidence to the DA. An interview was done that he thinks will lead to #AmberGuyger being charged. Merritt said for that reason, he's not going to release that information to the public right now. #BothamJean #BothamShemJean
Remember: Dallas Chief Hall said on Fri that at her request, a warrant would be issued charging #AmberGuyger with manslaughter. On Sat, she said the Texas Rangers, who are handling the investigation, asked that a warrant be held while they investigate #BothamJean #BothamShemJean
