Three Men Found Guilty of Murdering Ahmaud Arbery

I'm still upset this case received less attention than the Rittenhouse one. Particularly with the left, who hold the pretense of being vigilant about racial equality, but curiously preoccupy themselves with cases that involve predominantly white people (see also the Petito case), while actual cases involving minorities go ignored by them in comparison.

>BRUNSWICK, Ga. - Three white men were found guilty of murder and other charges on Wednesday for the pursuit and fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, in a case that, together with the killing of George Floyd, helped inspire the racial justice protests of last year.

>The three defendants - Travis McMichael, 35; his father, Gregory McMichael, 65; and their neighbor William Bryan, 52 - face sentences of up to life in prison for the state crimes. The men have also been indicted on separate federal charges, including hate crimes and attempted kidnapping, and are expected to stand trial in February on those charges.

>The verdict suggested that the jury agreed with prosecutors' arguments that Mr. Arbery posed no imminent threat to the men and that the men had no reason to believe he had committed a crime, giving them no legal right to chase him through their suburban neighborhood. "You can't start it and claim self-defense," the lead prosecutor argued in her closing statements. "And they started this."

>The outcome of the trial brought considerable relief to Mr. Arbery's family, who had watched the proceedings from inside the courthouse for weeks.

>"I never thought this day would come, but God is good," said Wanda Cooper-Jones, Mr. Arbery's mother.
