That isn't lost on me, but I just sort of have a problem when smear campaigns start. Just let the facts speak for themselves. Don't defect from the issues at hand and have outlets publish stories as to how they "found weed" in Jean Botham's apartment etc. It's all about trying to sully someone's reputation and diminish support for them while painting them as a bad actor.He is heard on tape saying she is his girlfriend.I am guessing she is his girlfriend unless he was one of those guys that thinks women they just talked to are dating them.
It's awful if he was cheating on his wife, (as he indicated), or Jean Botham was smoking some weed, but that shouldn't factor in unless it's pertinent to the case. What Rayshard Brooks did should be allowed to stand on it's on. He was wrong, (though that doesn't mean that he automatically deserved a death sentence and should have been killed), but he was definitely WAAAAAaay across the line and they don't need to add the "defame his character" playbook. Just let the facts speak for themselves without the sullying campaign unless those facts are pertinent to whether deadly force should have been used against him. (JMHO).
