The men who killed Ahmaud Arbery are asking for charges to be dropped.
Justice is not just an arrest, WE NEED CONVICTIONS! The men who killed Ahmaud Arbery are asking for charges to be dropped. They were arrested 73 days after they murdered Arbery. 73 days after! Gregory and Travis McMichaels killed Arbery while he was jogging, by hunting him down.
They are calling for some charges to be dropped and for release on bond. The murderers want to walk free after walking free for 73 days. McMichaels are asking the judge to IGNORE the indictment’s malice murder charge and to drop the second charge that they committed false imprisonment.
The judge has yet to answer but it makes me worried that he’s considering it. If the judge allows this, no justice will be served. It’ll be just ANOTHER case of the guilty walking free like Breonna Taylor’s killers, They need to have every charge against them because they committed those racist and terrible acts. Plus they already walked free for 73 days before getting arrested. They don’t need to be release on bond.
This isn’t the update I was hoping to give you guys, but for now it’s all I got. I do want to talk about the Citizens Arrest law however that MAY be applied to this case and help some charges be dropped. See citizens arrest isn’t just something you see occasionally in movies and tv shows. In fact it has a long history of oppression of black people.
In Georgia, pretty much, anyone can “arrest” anyone else under suspicion of a crime AND HOLD THEM FOR UP TO TWO DAYS, until Police arrive. It’s been a law since 1863, AND WAS USED TO PREVENT SLAVES FROM ESCAPING TO UNION LINES. The person who made the law itself is actually a MAJOR white supremacist who didn’t even believe that black people would be able to function as a free citizen.
Luckily there is someone working on it in the Georgia Legislature, and the citizenry has become more aware of the issue. And it’s given me another issue to fight for in Florida.
