Not sure if the judge responsible for sentencing will consider the handling of evidence associated with this case, but I hope so…
Seems like they should have tacked on a fraud charge for that.
In the article, one of the photographers says, “If you do a google image search for ‘African child’ it gives much different results than for ‘American child,’ or 'British child.”
I didn’t doubt them, but the disparity is quite stark!
Real self defense doesn’t count, because melanin.
The murder of Mr. Arbery was horrific. I feel like justice has been served.
The fact that this happened in Brunswick GA, that a nearly all white jury found three white men guilty of shooting a Black man when they had an out with the citizens arrest law is encouraging.
Agreed that this is encouraging. Doesn’t look there’s much leeway in sentencing, either.
The struggle continues:
Arbery’s mother continues to pursue a federal civil lawsuit, filed on the one-year anniversary of Arbery’s death, accusing Glynn County law enforcement of a cover up of her son’s killing.
Ahmaud Arbery’s mother is tenacious and she always believed in this jury when the rest of us wondered. She especially inspired me these past weeks. She is an amazing person.
