Attorneys offer surprising defense for men charged in Ahmaud Arbery killing and the story behind it

Recommended Posts

Manwon Lender

The shooting death of Arbery, 25, is a story about a mother's relentless pursuit for the truth of what happened to her son. It's also a case that has raised questions about race and racism, and whether local authorities tried to quash the initial investigation.

Below in the link is tha complete story that lead up to this young man's death and the prosecution of this young mans killers. I believe this is the first time it has been presented in this manner. While it is a very long article to understand what occurred it should be read if you have the time.

How many more times does this need to happen before folks admit we DO have a problem with racists?

It happens to a lot of people, of all colors. The difference is no one in the media cares unless it’s a black guy. 
 

The whole divide and concur scheme the Dems planned, shown in the Wikileaks emails, is alive and well.

No situations like this don't happen to a lot of people, the man was hunted down and killed because he wasn't White. In fact if he had been White this would not have happened at all. But there is bright side to this story, those three good old boys won't be carrying out their brand of justice any longer. In fact when they get to prison solitary confinement will be the only safe place for them, and rightly so, man that's a hell of a way to do a life sentence!

Oh I thought this was another police shooting. This is kinda a strange situation. I mean it isn’t like the kid wasn’t just trespassing on someone’s property. Had been seen doing so more than once. Then he attacked a guy who was holding a gun on him. 
 

Sad situation all around. I don’t think these people had no right to confront this kid and find out why he was breaking laws in their neighborhood. They should have left the gun at home though.

How many more times does this need to happen before folks realize, if you come to someone's hood to rob, and steal, you just might get shot.   and no, he was not just jogging thru there,

This crime was a racist act carried out by three men who took the law into their own hands and murdered a young Black American simply because of the Color of his Skin! Below is part of a court transcript the rest is in the link below.

The McMichaels would later tell police they'd seen Ahmaud before. And though there is no evidence Ahmaud stole or damaged anything in the house, this day they decide to follow him. 

AGENT RICHARD DIAL: Greg McMichael … tells Travis that the guy's running down the road. They both grab their weapons.

Lee Merritt: The McMichaels are speeding toward him, they get behind him. … They claim that they begin to yell at him, "Hey, pull over, stop, we want to talk to you." He doesn't respond.

Lee Merritt: So, there were men pursuing him with guns. 

Lee Merritt: This is where things really escalate because as he turns around to run the other direction, he's confronted with another truck.

According to the suspects' statements to police, they continue chasing Ahmaud through the neighborhood for about the next 4 minutes. Authorities say Ahmaud's palm print later found around a dent on Roddie Bryan's truck suggest Bryan had used the truck to hit him.

But Bryan catches up with him again, and now he's filming with his phone. Meanwhile, investigators say the McMichaels have taken another route to get in front of Ahmaud. They're waiting for him near the corner of Satilla Drive and Holmes Road. By this point, the father, Gregory McMichael, is in the truck bed with a .357 magnum. At about 1:15 p.m., he calls 911:

McMichael's son, Travis, is standing near the driver's door — shotgun in hand.

After Ahmaud changes direction, Travis McMichael meets him by the front bumper.

Lee Merritt: The first shot actually strikes Ahmaud in the chest. 

AGENT RICHARD DIAL: They're engaged in a physical confrontation at this point. They go off the screen.

Lee Merritt: Travis lifts up that gun a second time and shoots him in his hand. 

AGENT RICHARD DIAL: And then you see a third shot occur. 

Ahmaud Arbery is pronounced dead at the scene. 

PROSECUTOR JESSE EVANS [at hearing]: Can you please articulate for the court what Mr. Bryan said he heard Travis McMichael say?

AGENT RICHARD DIAL: Yes … Mr. Bryan said that he heard Travis McMichael make the statement, "******g n****r!"

LEE MERRITT [to reporters]: Racism was the basis of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery. 

Prosecutor Jesse Evans: Clearly, the person that started this were Greg and Travis McMichael. ... When they make the choice that they're gonna grab guns and take the law into their own hands, that's when this crime starts. It doesn't start at the end of this whole progression out in the middle of the street.

After reading the entire trial transcript I also came away thinking the same thing, I suppose that's the question if the hour!
