On February 23, 2020, 25 year-old Ahmaud Arbery was chased and gunned down by Travis McMichael, son of retired Brunswick investigator Greg McMichael, under the father’s and son’s pretenses of witnessing a burglary in Satilla Shores of Glynn County.
McMichael’s account of the deadly encounter with Arbery was not released until nearly 6 weeks following the shooting.
In addition; McMichael’s questionable account of events and the police department’s poor communication efforts following Arbery’s death leads us to believe that Arbery was a victim of racial profiling.
No one has the right to pursue, attack and kill an unarmed, non-threatening individual. Ahmaud’s voice will be heard.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
It is reprehensible the way this country treats black people and those in marginalized groups. No man’s life means less than another’s. The criminal justice system has failed this victim’s family by not arresting nor pursuing the gunmen who killed him.
