Extremists are celebrating Arbery’s killing in the worst places on the internet, and turning his assailants into white supremacist folk heroes.
One of the Men Involved in Ahmaud Arbery’s Death Lost the Ability to Make Arrests When He Was in Law Enforcement
Gregory McMichael’s law enforcement certification was suspended in February 2019, according to personnel records reviewed by the Washington Post.
Travis McMichael "confronted" a man on the same under-construction property where Ahmaud allegedly stopped by shortly before he was killed.
The AG's letter to the bureau of investigation says one prosecutor even steered police away from arresting the McMichaels before he was formally appointed to the case.
A third bullet grazed his right wrist.
“We are assessing all of the evidence to determine whether federal hate crimes charges are appropriate.”
Local law enforcement and prosecutors couldn't come to that decision after more than two months.
The 2 White Men Involved in Fatal Shooting of Ahmaud Arbery Were Just Arrested and Charged With Murder
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced the arrests Thursday.
“Citizen’s arrest” has been part of the Georgia penal code for decades — although most people know it as a comic feature of "The Andy Griffith Show."
The men who chased and shot at Arbery in late February still have not been arrested or charged with a crime.
Two white men chased him down because they thought he was a burglary suspect.
