Botham Jean’s brother forgives, hugs convicted murderer Amber Guyger


>>Dana: WELCOME BACK VERY POWERFUL SCENE IN A TEXAS COURT ROOM. A MAN HIS BROTHER WAS SHOT TO DEATH BY DALLAS POLICE OFFICER FOR GIVING HIS BROTHER’S KILLER HER.>>IF YOU TRULY ARE SORRY, I KNOW I CAN SPEAK FOR MYSELF. I FORGIVE YOU. AND… I KNOW IF YOU GO TO GOD AND ASK HIM, HE WILL FORGIVE YOU. AND I DON’T THINK, AGAIN, I’M SPEAKING FOR MYSELF, NOT EVEN FOR MY FAMILY. BUT I LOVE YOU JUST LIKE ANYONE ELSE. AND I’M NOT GOING AS I HOPE YOU ROT AND DIE, JUST LIKE MY BROTHER DID. I PERSONALLY WANT THE BEST FOR YOU. AND I WASN’T GOING TO HAVE HER SAY THIS IN FRONT OF MY FAMILY OR ANYONE, BUT I DON’T EVEN WANT YOU TO GO TO JAIL. I WANT THE BEST FOR YOU. BECAUSE I KNOW THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT BOTHAM WOULD WANT ON THE BEST WOULD BE TO GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST. I’M NOT GOING TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE. I THINK GIVING YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST WOULD BE THE BEST THING THAT BOTHAM WOULD WANT YOU TO DO. AGAIN, I LOVE YOU AS A PERSON. AND I DON’T WISH ANYTHING BAD ON YOU. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S POSSIBLE BUT CAN I GIVE HER A HUG, PLEASE?>>YES.>>Dana: THE JUDGE ALSO HUGGING THE FORMER OFFICER, AMBER GUYGER, GIVING HER A BIBLE AFTER SENTENCING HER TO TEN YEARS BEHIND BARS FOR KILLING A NEIGHBOR, AN UNARMED BLACK MAN, AND HIS OWN APARTMENT. SHE SAID SHE MISTOOK IT FOR HER APARTMENT AND THOUGHT SHE WAS AN INTRUDER. THAT’S BRING IN OUR FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, THEOLOGIAN AND ETHICIST. YOU COULD HELP US THINK ABOUT THIS. THE AMOUNT OF POISE AND DIGNITY FROM THE 18-YEAR-OLD YOUNG MAN WAS REALLY INCREDIBLE.>>THE POISE AND DIGNITY CAME FORTH FROM A HEART THAT HAD ALREADY GIVEN UP A JUST CAUSE THAT HE HAD AGAINST THIS POLICE OFFICER. LET ME SAY, A JUST CAUSE. WE MAKE ALL SORTS OF EXCUSES AND OUR PERSONAL LIVES WHY WE WON’T FORGIVE SOMEBODY. IT USUALLY HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THE OTHER PERSON DID SOMETHING WRONG, OBJECTIVELY WRONG. BUT FORGIVENESS IS SAYING EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A JUST CAUSE AGAINST YOU, I’M GOING TO GIVE IT UP. BECAUSE GOD IS THE ONLY ONE WHO’S PERFECT. DANA, AS I WAS WALKING INTO THE STUDIO, A GENTLEMAN IN THE PARKING LOT — I’M HERE IN PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, VISITING FAMILY AND A GENTLEMAN SAID WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ON TV NOW AND I SAID I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE STORY OF THIS GUY WHO FORGAVE THE KILLER OF HIS BROTHER AND HE SAID THAT’S WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS RIGHT NOW. THAT’S WHAT WE NEED IN THIS VERY TENSE POINT IN OUR COUNTRY. HE SAID DIDN’T JESUS SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THAT? THE BIBLE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT IF YOU DON’T FORGIVE, GOD WON’T FORGIVE YOU. JUDGE NOT LEST YOU BE JUDGED.>>Dana: I REMEMBER HEARING PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONE PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONP PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONI PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONO PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONG PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONV PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONN PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONS PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONI PRESIDENT BUSH TELLING ME AT ONS SOMETHING THAT YOU DO FOR YOURSELF AS WELL. SO THAT YOU CAN MOVE ON. HE LOST HIS BROTHER WHO HE LOVED VERY MUCH. TALK TO ME ABOUT THE BRAVERY OF THIS YOUNG MAN WHO SAYS HE WAS NEVER PLANNING TO SAY THIS IN FRONT OF HIS FAMILY BUT THAT HE CHOSE TO SPEAK AND WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR FAITH AND YOU CHOOSE TO SPEAK ABOUT IT, IT CAN OFTEN FEEL A LITTLE SCARY.>>YEAH, EXACTLY. TO BRING BOTH OF THOSE POINTS TOGETHER, DANA, WHETHER YOU DO IT FOR YOURSELF, FOR SOMEBODY ELSE. I THINK THE CONSEQUENCE OF DOING SOMETHING OUT OF LOVE IS THAT IT ALSO HELPS YOU. BUT IT’S LOVE THAT DRIVES THE DECISION. IT’S LOVE FOR THE OTHER PERSON. THE RESULT IS THAT BOTH ARE WINNERS. SOMEBODY JUST WROTE TO ME ON FACEBOOK, WHEN I POSTED THAT I WAS GOING TO BE ON THIS AFTERNOON AND SHE SAID MY BROTHER WAS KILLED IN 2007 AND I’VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FORGIVE UNTIL NOW. WATCHING THIS YOUNG MAN DO IT. IT’S IT TIED TO SEE WHO WINS. FIRST OF ALL, THE WOMAN WHO RECEIVED FORGIVENESS, THE POLICE OFFICER. SECONDLY, THE GUY WHO FORGAVE. WE KNOW HE’S GOING TO BE IN A LOT BETTER POSITION RIGHT NOW AND THIRD, IT’S ALL OF US. WE ALL WIN. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NOT WINNING AND THE OPPOSITE OF JUST HOLDING A GRUDGE, ANGER EATS AWAY AT OUR SOUL. OUR OWN SOUL AND THE SOUL OF OUR NATION.>>Dana: WHAT ABOUT THE FACT THAT THIS ENTIRE TRIAL — I DON’T KNOW IF YOU HAD A CHANCE TO FOLLOW IT BUT THROUGHOUT YOU HAD A LOT OF LOVE AND KINDNESS WITHIN THIS COURT ROOM. WITH EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDING THE TERRIBLE SITUATION. THE LOSS OF A LIFE, MISTAKE THAT TURNED OUT TO BE SOMETHING SHE’S GOING TO HAVE TO SPEND TEN YEARS IN PRISON FOR. THE BAILIFF WAS KIND. THE JUDGE GIVES HER A BIBLE. YOU’VE DONE PRISON MINISTRY IN YOUR LIFE. THIS ISN’T TYPICALLY HOW IT GOES DOWN.>>IT’S NOT IN THE DIFFERENCE IS HATRED OR LOVE. IT’S ANGER OR FORGIVENESS. I THINK WE APPLY, EACH ONE OF US IN OUR OWN LIVES AND IT’S NOT ONLY ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS. IT’S ACTUALLY FORGIVING WHEN I HAVE A JUST CAUSE AGAINST ANOTHER PERSON, FORGIVING WHEN THERE’S A JUST CAUSE. I THINK THAT’S THE HEART OF IT ALL.>>Dana: IF THAT PERSON ISN’T SORRY ABOUT SOMETHING, STILL FORGIVING IS THE WAY TO GO, RIGHT?>>JESUS SAID FOR EXAMPLE, HE WAS BEING CRUCIFIED AND HE SAID

  • As for me forget I'll forgive you but you gonna have to serve more than 10 years maybe 60+ because my brother ain't coming back if you were able pull out your gun and aim straight at an unarmed man and fire without question then it's not a mistake or fearing for your life which won't make sense because it's not your place

  • Amen brother preach. Give your life to Christ I did when I was sick and tired of being sick and tired and now he has led me to places I never thought I would ever achieve or see.

  • This is amazing Yeshua is lord this is all glory to God! Dont believe these cowards talking down on God they will see his wrath for u guys trying to talk down on God and trying to convict people to feel that way u guys are like ur father satan

  • Candelaria Danicher says:

    That is a good Christian!! Brandt demonstrated the real LOVE of GOD!!! That's the closest to forgiveness/love of God I had ever seen. God bless his soul and give strength and wisdom to continue to be a "faithful servant of God.

  • This young man did exactly what Jesus would have done. He has Jesus all over him. God Bless him and his family. ♥️🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼♥️

  • Captain Barbossa says:

    It's pretty sad how so many are angry at the kind gestures the brother and judge gave the jailed ex-cop. Humanity has forgotten about compassion and forgiveness and the power that comes with. Instead it's all about anger and hate.

  • God was in the court room and entered the hearts of many. Awesome story. I will never forget this man's forgiveness. A better man than most for sure.

  • There was a white American girl who traveled to South Africa to protest apartheid. Ironically she was senselessly and tragically killed by two young black men, who themselves had been victims of horrible abuses, and in the throngs of a riot, they saw a young white woman, and mistakenly saw an enemy. They were both convicted. During the Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC) trials, they applied for amnesty and were granted it. The parents of the young girl traveled to South Africa. They met the young men. They forgave them. They met their parents. The parents hugged the parents of their daughters' killers. They even hugged the killers themselves. It's hard to understand how powerful love can be. It's hard to imagine a love so great that it can overcome such great sadness and anger. But just because it's hard to imagine, doesn't mean it's not real. I'm not a religious person. But I do believe in the power of human generosity, kindness, and courage. Videos such as this one are inspiring and remind us all to love everyone that we can.

  • Ok, sell out.. let's see, if, going to hug Mother of victim, witness Jason Brown.. he was shot in the BACK, yes, BACK and leg.. guess, what.. another black man dead

  • This kid is unbelievable. He has some serious balls to say what he said. This is a true representation of Christ. The liberal media is SO pissed about this. There’s no way they aren’t.

  • I personally forgive all illegal immigrants , right wing terrorists and Islamic terrorists. I want to give all them hugs I love them just like anybody, I dont want to see nothing bad happen to them!

  • Roderick McKinney says:

    So when will white people get over OJ Simpson , stop making tv shows and movies about the case and give him a hug especially since he was acquitted since white people love their justice system so much.

  • The verse you were looking for was Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

  • He will now be free of bitterness, hate, and revenge. Forgiveness helps the one wronged, not just the one forgiven. An amazing display, truly amazing.

  • Not only did this kid show the true face of forgiveness (as Jesus teaches), but it's a black male forgiving a white female…… how many trigger words are in this comment?

    I can feel a few in the far left experiencing brain malfunction after seeing this.

    Thank you ABBA for showing us that our hearts can be healed in the craziest of circumstances.

  • Marc Anthony Holmes says:

    There is nothing beautiful about this, i mean the family can forgive her for what she did. The ignorance of this woman to walk into someone's house and shoot them. She would have noticed the different furniture the minute she walked. I can see through this lady and what she's about. You cant treat this woman like she's a heroine in distress. America has painted a picture of how you are supposed to fear people of color and think their suspicious. It's a shame how this young man lost his life , this whole story is pathetic and even more ridiculous. The judge was too nice, she deserves more than ten years.

  • Design Academy says:

    This family can't just assume this woman doesn't ALREADY belong to a church and religion. Racists can be some of the most religious people on earth. I feel for the family, but in this court room was not the time or the place to be on a religious high horse. In fact, you could be doing more harm than good giving onlookers the impression that they too can expect a sweet baby hug for committing heinous acts. If you want to follow God's word, then read the passage in the Bible where it talks it being a season and a time for everything. Let the justice system give out the consequences according to law, then you go home and grieve. PERIOD! We're not passing out long and sympathetic hugs to racist murders who know good and will what subconsciously drives them to instinctively take the lives of Black people…WHITE SUPREMACY.

  • Joshua Brown, the neighbour who heard the confrontation between this "police officer" & the victim, & who testified in court was gunned down recently ! 😡
    Care to hazard a guess who shot him ?

  • Nobody think that this hug looks like they know each other for a long time? I may be wrong but there’s something not right !

  • LifeSaver Eli-Yah says:

    A HYPOCRITICAL NATION
    Isaiah 10:6
    [6] I WILL SEND HIM AGAINST AN HYPOCRITICAL NATION, and against THE PEOPLE OF MY WRATH will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

    Isaiah 10:1-3
    [1]Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;
    [2]To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!
    [3]And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?

  • Hope this will be reverse when it's the other way around. It's nothing wrong with forgiving cus we're supposed to but 4 the judge she was out of line…Y didn't she hug the victims mother. She broke the law and need to be fired that's my opinion

  • Cop lovers killed a witness today . It’s Dallas .. we knew this would happen .
    Just not so quickly … the killer cop female felon was an example of how low the standards are …

  • P – A – L – E – E – E – E – Z – E!!!!!

    DUH perfect lily person, would NEVER hug a SO CALLED black person, who killed a family member.

    If I'm wrong, show me! Who? Da Brownz huggin O.J., these dayz? ( & he didn't even do it!!!! YET millionz o good lily folkz, would LOVE 2 c O.J. b dat strange fruit! Sick azz they r, they'd probably take sum of da juice, 4 breakfast. SMH @ dis malarkey! )

  • So thankful for Jesus and the faith that these people has to put hate and bitterness aside to see a broken person and reach out in love and further the kingdom of God. This is what Jesus means to a broken world. Hope and Love

  • Darrell Williams says:

    Pain make people change and money make people rapacious and foolish. Guaranteed he got paid for hugging it out .

  • That is beautiful! Brothers and sisters in Christ, lets pray. Lord Jesus, please bless the judge and the young man who lost his bother. Also, may Amber Guyger find You Jesus and accept You as her Lord and Savior. Also, please protect her in jail, and comfort her as she faces the many possible horrible things that could happen to her in jail. Please bless Amber with Your love and presence. May she read Your Word each and every day. Lord, may many come to know You and be saved as a result of this act of love and forgiveness that can only come from You by the working of the Holy Spirit that resides in that young man. Lord, please silence the scoffers. The brothers and sisters in Christ who have bitterness, indifference, racism, unforgiveness please break them of their sin and build them back up. Sternly discipline them. Please help them to forgive their neighbor as You forgave them. In Jesus Name we pray this, amen.

  • Narlowe McFarlowe says:

    For some reason, I feel like the only reason shes getting all this sorrow is because she's a woman. Imagine all the outrage if she was a dude.

  • Was a model family until he turned it into a disgrace to a race.. Black folks have no business forgiven any enemy of whatever race killing a member of its family.

  • This is my brother, The one our lord speaks of. he is kind in his words even when he is hurting. God bless You Jonathan.

  • Don't commend this. For him to not stand up and ask for justice, doesn't make him a good person. I see someone who did something foolish. Forgiving her and hugging her was cowardly and he might as well of spit on his brothers grave to basically tell the jury to reduce her sentence.

  • Uh all these “WOAAH YOU HAVE STOCKHOLM SYNDROME” and such. What does that even mean? Please. Elaborate

    Definition of Stockholm syndrome:

    Stockholm syndrome is a condition which causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors during captivity.

    And last time I’ve heard, no one here is being held captive against their will

  • missus jude newman says:

    You are a beautiful young man Brandt, and only 18, Wow. You have done more to show the love of God, than all the woke church ever will. Your act of forgiveness and love has made me, and many others look into our own hearts to see if we reflect Christs love as you have done, Much love and many blessings to you.

  • I think he hug her because he was afraid for his own life that he might end up dead like his brother, you dont know maybe they was threatening him, police are the biggest gang in the world!

  • Alicia Angelica says:

    Wow. He is unbelievably strong. God bless him. I personally could never do this. Even if it was a mistake, I know I would never have it in me to forgive this woman. I think the biggest reason why for me is the fact that she did not carry out CPR to try and save this poor innocent man after knowing she was in the wrong apartment. She was so foolish….

  • This is how us Christians needs to be to the world. To love as we have been loved. Botham, you are a amazing and strong person!

  • The beauty is, this young man brought healing to everyone! Literally! He showed us that love can & should win hate/revenge! Thank God!
