    SIGN PETITION HERE TO SERVE JUSTICE FOR AHMAUD ARBERY 🙏🏽

    THIS A GOFUNDME CREATED BY FRIENDS FOR HIS FAMILY 🙏🏽


    THIS TOOK PLACE IN FEBRUARY AND JUST NOW BEING BROUGHT BACK UP INTO THE LIGHT


    BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Ahmaud Arbery loved to run. It was how the 25-year-old former high school football standout stayed fit, his friends said, and it was not unusual to see him running around the outskirts of the small coastal Georgia city near where he lived.

    But on a Sunday afternoon in February, as Mr. Arbery ran through a suburban neighborhood of ranch houses and moss-draped oaks, he passed a man standing in his front yard, who later told the police that Mr. Arbery looked like the suspect in a string of break-ins.

    According to a police report, the man, Gregory McMichael, 64, called out to his son, Travis McMichael, 34. They grabbed their weapons, a .357 magnum revolver and a shotgun, jumped into a truck and began following Mr. Arbery.

    “Stop, stop,” they shouted at Mr. Arbery, “we want to talk to you.”

    Moments later, after a struggle over the shotgun, Mr. Arbery was killed, shot at least twice.

    No one has been charged or arrested in connection with the Feb. 23 killing. The case has received little attention beyond Brunswick, but it has raised questions in the community about racial profiling — Mr. Arbery was black, and the father and son are white — and about the interpretation of the state’s self-defense laws.

  • Just saw the notification from TMZ come up on my phone about this, I think it’s relevant enough rn for a new thread if there is one already

  • I just read the news. This is disgusting. I’m out of words. What am I looking at? This really looks like lynching. Even if (!) he was violent, why do these people bring shotguns and revolvers out. I’m out of words.

  • Thank you for sharing. How the F*** has the shooter, Travis McMichael, not been even arrested yet???? They f***ing chased him down as if they were literally going for a f***ing hunt.
    From TMZ:

    “ Arbery's death is being referred to as a modern-day lynching, as he was unarmed when he was gunned down in Brunswick, GA on February 23 by a white citizen named Travis McMichael ... who has not been arrested or charged. He also happens to be the son of a former district attorney investigator.
    As you can see in the video, Arbery was jogging when he was stopped by McMichael and his father in a white pickup truck. McMichael was armed with a shotgun. Arbery appears to attempt to run around the truck before he and McMichael start grappling.
    After at least 2 shots, the men continued struggling over the gun ... until Arbery stumbles away, shot in the mid-section, and then collapses to the ground. He was later pronounced dead.
    McMichael has not been charged in the shooting ... reportedly because he and his father, who was in the back of the truck, claim they were trying to make a citizen's arrest. They claim Ahmaud fit the description of a suspect in a string of recent break-ins in the area.
    After the emergence of the video, D.A. Pro Tempore Tom Durden has decided the case ‘should be presented to the grand jury of Glynn County for consideration of criminal charges against those involved in the death of Mr. Arbery.’
    Ahmaud's family says the use of deadly force was unnecessary.”

    man was literally out for a jog and they claim they thought he matched a description of a perpetrator of a local crime and tried to make a “citizens arrest.” F***ing insane considering they had no true lead that dude was doing anything BUT jogging

    Exactly what I’m thinking too. They’re saying dude that shot him, Travis, and his dad, Gavin, are the two dudes in the video and that the dad is a f***ing DA or something f***ing racist pieces of s***, of course they have ties to the law.

    EDIT: Gavin McMichael is a former DA investigator.

  • Kind of looks fake not gonna lie

    Oh alright that explains sum, this some other s*** man like deadass it’s 2020. Even if they were tryna do a “citizen arrest” they could’ve just tackled him down between the two of them. Crazy how they can say some bullshit and it holds up to the law 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

    I hate it when people like this act is if they are the police or something. Imagine seeing that truck with two rednecks with shotguns in it “attempting citizen arrest”. There should be no room for “citizens” behaving like this. It reminds me of George Zimmerman, who acted as the “neighbourhood watch”, and killed Trayvon Martin. These people are racist and/or highly incompetent and should not even think that such an attempt to “combat crime” is justified. I don’t get why they don’t just call the cops, leave it to the professionals. Although there are a lot of rotten apples in that profession too... this justice system got a lot to change and it’s awful to notice such things through irreversible abuse and murder cases.

    The fact that this been happened and they needed this video to actually do their f***ing jobs.

    GA is a s***hole. This keeps happening and this is why we say systematic racism is a thing because it keeps happening and the white people on top do nothing and they’re not going to put actual people that want change on top.

    crazy thing is I think they already had the video and they already knew who it was, but probably are just now (2 months later) finna do something about it cuz now it’s not just the locals that know but it’s gettin media attention 🤦🏽‍♂️

    They were question, their defense was that they were tryna do a “citizen arrest” (which if I remember correct legally you can do a citizen arrest but you not suppose to use any physical force) and apparently they connected to the DA somehow

    What I don’t get is if you drunk driving or even regular driving and you run someone over by accident you can and will be charged for murder if I’m correct, so how tf can these 2 get off THAT easily

    I mean I know exactly WHY they got off easily, but it’s literally f***ed up

  • The trash gonna trash but the complacency of those allowing this to continue to happen is the worst part tbh.

    If the victim was white and the shooters were black/brown then their asses would've been thrown into prison immediately. That's the brutal truth of our justice system
