Given that manslaughter would also have been a valid judgment, I'm okay with 10 years for murder. It's not a slap on the wrist by any means, enough to bite, but not enough to equate her actions with pre-meditated murder. It's also not so severe a sentence that the defense can scream biased jury. They probably will anyway, of course.She was sentenced to 10 years, which seems a little light to me, but better than I expected.
As for Guyger's reaction... she still makes it all about her, which is probably some insight into why this happened. She's so locked up in her own head, that she really lacks judgment. She's too self-absorbed and emotional to be a good cop; she lacks the ability to detach and view a situation analytically.
“I feel like a terrible person. I feel like a piece of crap,” she said. “I hate that I have to live with this every single day of my life. And I ask God for forgiveness, and I hate myself every single day. I feel like I don’t deserve a chance to be with my family and friends. And I wish he was the one with the gun who killed me.”
