Hundreds demand justice for Arbery at Georgia rally

By AARON MORRISON

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) ó Justice for Ahmaud Arbery, a black man killed during a pursuit by a white man and his son in Georgia, isnít just prison time for his killers ó itís changes in a local justice system that never charged them with a crime, rallygoers said Saturday.

Hundreds of people came to the Glynn County courthouse demanding accountability for a case in which charges werenít filed until state officials stepped in after a leaked video sparked national outrage.

Arbery, 25, was killed Feb. 23 just outside the port city of Brunswick. Gregory McMichael, 64, told police he and his son, Travis McMichael, 34, pursued Arbery because they believed he was responsible for recent break-ins in the neighborhood.

The McMichaels werenít arrested and charged with murder until May 7, after a video of the shooting was publicly released to a local radio station and less than 48 hours after state agents took over the case.

1. Not six feet apart, masks under noses, and the guy in front no mask at all

I guess the virus is over. I swear in a short 10 days it seems everything has changed.

2. I just hope that it does not end like the Trayvon Martin case

as the verdict to acquit in that case was bullshit.
