Faye Higbee

The Georgia jury has returned a verdict of guilty in the murder of Ahmaud Arbery case from 2020. Three men, Travis McMichael, his father Greg McMichael, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan were found guilty of felony murder and related charges.

Story continues below:



Jurors found Travis McMichael guilty of malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony.

The jury also found Greg McMichael guilty of four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony. Jurors found him not guilty on charges of malice murder.

Finally, the jury found the McMichaels’ neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan, guilty of felony murder and aggravated assault.


We have written about this case before (videos included):

Unlike the Rittenhouse case, the videos in this trial showed no self defense argument at all. Arbery was unarmed, and even the video that showed him entering a construction site clearly showed that he did not steal anything from it. The McMichael’s both claimed they were suspicious of him because of “burglaries” in the area. Being suspicious of someone and murdering them are two seriously different scenarios.

Black Lives Matter protesters planned to stay at the courthouse through Thanksgiving if the jury hadn’t reached a verdict by then. They claimed they weren’t planning to destroy any property, but the businesses in the area began preparing just in case.

What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now. When we don’t get it, shut it down.

The thing that the protesters are missing is this: the jury in the Rittenhouse case viewed the evidence, saw self defense and rendered justice. This jury did the same: they viewed the evidence and rendered a just verdict. Hollywood and the protesting Black folks, along with their white groupies need to understand the law, and stop running their mouths. The justice system is not always perfect, but in these two cases, it worked as it was supposed to work.

Hopefully, the protesters will leave the local businesses alone and not do anything stupid.
