Ahmaud Arbery was hunted down and shot as he jogged through this neighborhood back in February. He was on a run which takes him 2 miles from his house into Satilla Shores, Georgia where the shooting happened.
The 2 white men who tracked and shot Arbery used the excuse he had committed a burglary in the neighborhood. There were no reported burglaries in their neighborhood. The WHITE SUPREMIST BIGGOTs go by the names of Gregory and Travis McMichael.
Arbery’s family has also called for William “Roddie” Bryan, the man who filmed the incident, to be arrested and charged in their son’s murder.
That brings me to my next comment on this.
George Barnhill, DA declined to arrest the two men who had shot Arbery. Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting Tom Durden (prosecutor) in the investigation. I think George Barnhill should be arrested and brought up on charges and to loose his license to practice law and never to be allowed to hold any such position of any power.
You may ask why hadn’t these two killers been arrested????
Gregory McMichael had recently retired as an investigator in the Brunswick district attorney’s office.. He had also worked as an officer in the Glynn County Police Department. BLUE GONE BAD… SO SAD.
I can remember when I was in the military and we were going to school in the south. We had gone into town and we were refused service and kicked out of the bar because we were a mixed group. We were a bag of skittles. Black, Mexican and white soldiers who went through an experience I will never forget. Since we were staying at the local motel across from the bar in town we decided to go get supplies and go back to the hotel. We had a great day at the pool and BBQ’d. It was about 7 pm and we were sitting out by the pool and the men from the bar came to our hotel and told us to go back in our rooms. Things were getting very out of control. So we went to our rooms and called the police. The men crashed down our doors and started a fight. Tossed over the TVs in our rooms. I ended up with a broken nose. The police came and the men that started this were not charged and we had to go back to base and we as soldiers had discipline charges. Crazy when town officials can tell lies and get away with it… By the way I am a white Guy…
STATE OF GEORGIA DEATH PENALTY SHOULD APPLY
The following are the current capital crimes in the state of Georgia:
Murder with one of the following aggravating circumstances:
The offender has a prior record of conviction for a capital felony;
The offender was in the process of committing another capital felony or aggravated battery, or the offense of murder was committed while the offender was engaged in the commission of burglary in any degree or arson in the first degree;
The offender knowingly created a great risk of death to more than one person in a public place by means of a weapon or device which would normally be hazardous to the lives of more than one person;
The offender committed the offense of murder for himself or another, for the purpose of receiving money or any other thing of monetary value;
The murder of a judicial officer, former judicial officer, district attorney or solicitor-general, or former district attorney, solicitor, or solicitor-general was committed during or because of the exercise of his or her official duties;
The offender caused or directed another to commit murder or committed murder as an agent or employee of another person;
The capital offense was outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible, or inhuman in that it involved torture, depravity of mind, or an aggravated battery to the victim;
The offense of murder was committed against any peace officer, corrections employee, or firefighter while engaged in the performance of his official duties;.
The offense of murder was committed by a person in, or who has escaped from, the lawful custody of a peace officer or place of lawful confinement;
The murder was committed for the purpose of avoiding, interfering with, or preventing a lawful arrest or custody in a place of lawful confinement, of himself or another;
The capital offense was committed by a person previously convicted of rape, aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation, or aggravated sexual battery;
The murder was committed during an act of domestic terrorism.
Some of these aggravating factors apply also to rape, armed robbery, or kidnapping. However, in 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Kennedy v. Louisiana, that the death penalty is unconstitutional when applied to non-homicidal crimes against the person. However, the ruling meant that crimes “against the state” such as treason or terrorism would not likely be unconstitutional. Therefore, the offences of treason and aircraft hijacking would likely be considered a crime against the state in Georgia and the death penalty in this case may be constitutional.
