(STAR-TELEGRAM) — The nine people arrested Sunday during a protest outside AT&T stadium were released Tuesday afternoon on bond.

On Sunday night, a procession marched down Randol Mill Road to one of the entrances for the Dallas Cowboys game. Among the protesters was the family of Botham Jean, a man shot and killed in his apartment Sept. 6 by off-duty, uniformed Dallas police officer Amber Guyger.

Guyger said she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own.

During the protest, nine people were arrested for blocking traffic at the intersection of Collins and Randol Mill.

Those arrested were: Stephanie Briant, 29; Darryl Burnham, 31; Miracle Freeman, 29; Arminta Jeffreys, 25; Michael Lowe, 38; Melissa Perry, 33; Davante Peters, 25; Lelani Russell, 25; and Dion Williams, 29.

At about noon on Tuesday and about 40 hours after their initial arrest, all nine were released from Tarrant County jail.

  1. Is that the same America that has sanctioned Saint Lucia over our police efforts to control local crime through Operation Restore Confidence?

  2. Killing a black man in his own apartment gets you 3 hours of voluntary detainment. Just long enough to get your story right, have a towel draped over your orange jumpsuit so you don't look like a thug.

    Peacefully protesting killing this black man gets you 2 days in jail and your name plastered all over the newspapers so people know you were in jail.

    And they say trust in the justice system.

    • I like this comment "BlackStarr" so true.

      When you see what happened there, it makes it very hard to trust the system.
