1. Isn't it obvious this is manslaughter? I thought manslaughter is when you kill someone

The problem is, once again, our country's obsession with guns and shooting things.

While investigators were able to recover those texts, Hermus said, they were unable to obtain others because Guyger allegedly deleted them in the day or two after the shooting.

Rather than texting a lover, Hermus said, Guyger should have devoted 100% of her attention to providing first aid — or at the very least, comfort — as Jean lay wounded on the floor.

Hermus also sought to show that Guyger violated protocol by opening fire in the first place. Jean was on his couch in his shorts, watching TV and eating vanilla ice cream when Guyger walked through the front door, Hermus
