Meanwhile the MSM and the race baiters continue to push the narrative that the justice sys is setup to let white people get away with murdering blacks.

I guess if he was protesting racial injustice at the time, he'd have been fair game?  ???

If you are going to kill a thug it better be clearly in self defense as you are trying to escape.

The system is working overtime to protect the thugs from retaliation.

Hate to say it, but a not guilty in this case probably would have been like declaring open season on thugs in some areas.

One of the things keeping people from cleaning up their neighborhoods is the police and court system treating them harshly if it looks like vigilante justice.

Even in clear cut cases the legal process is the punishment.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

All three defendants guility of the murder of Mr. Arbery.

I don't get it. Not that I don't think they're guilty, but how do you get FOUR murder charges, two assault charges, AND an unlawful imprisonment charge out of shooting ONE guy?

Would somebody 'splain me that, please?

Actually five. One count malice murder, four counts felony murder.

There were 3 defendants so 1 each makes sense.  Were there some lesser included offenses, like with Chauvin?

As far as the shooters go, legally I have seen nothing yet that puts them in a righteous light.  No matter the black guy's criminal record, or if he had been trespassing, or even if he was guilty of recent burglaries in the area, I haven't seen any information that the attempted detention was in any way legally justified.  The GA statute on citizen arrest is pretty clear, and even giving all possible charitable interpretations of the events this far disclosed, they didn't meet the requirements for a legal citizen arrest.  Certainly once they brandished their firearms they became the instigators of violence, and Arbery would have been fully justified in using deadly force to resist attempted false imprisonment or even attempted kidnapping, and definitely assault with a deadly weapon.

The retired cop, at least, should have known better.

It would appear I called it correctly back when it first happened.

My understanding is that the main guy, the son, got popped for all five.

Travis McMichael, who shot and killed Arbery, was convicted on all nine counts. Five of the counts malice murder and four counts of felony murder carry a possible life sentence.

I don't think most of us thought it would be something they could get clear of.  They made themselves poster boys for the "what not to do" training.

They sort of did everything Zimmerman was accused of doing.  If someone with a shotgun asks you to go find a thief that ran down the road, say "No".

So is the 3rd guy the one that took the video?  Was he charged as an accessory?  I think I heard that, but I haven't been watching this case lately.


I don't think I agree that he should be tagged with murder, but that is the way the laws are set up.

That leaves no incentive to trust the system to get it right.  Which is apparently what they want.

  So it's do nothing, ever, or take action and avoid the courts at all costs.  That's not a healthy place to be.

And if you are in a group and one person steps over the line, everyone can get tagged with murder and whatever else they pile on.

That's what I was thinking. Also, as the Left works itself into a feces-hurling tantrum about fictitious white vigilantism (in Kenosha), they seem to be ignoring a case that comes a lot closer to fitting that description. I guess they'd rather not talk about the fact that, even in the Deep South, whites actually do face very harsh consequences when they commit crimes against blacks. It's like their white supremacy narrative is all a myth, if you can imagine that.

Hell,  even if you're not in whatever group they currently hate,  they'll just add you to it.

MillCreek's link explains it: https://www.11alive.com/article/news/crime/ahmaud-arbery/malice-murder-felony-murder-difference-ahmaud-arbery-death-trial/85-d13db692-cff9-4b4d-be73-5eba5ae22054

It still seems to me like it's piling on. I understand -- and subscribe to -- the concept of people who participate in a crime that results in the death of another person being charged with murder. And if tweo people die, I can see and support two charges.

But when ONE person dies and they take each little criminal act anyone present committed and make EVERY one of those a concomitant murder charge -- I think that's overdoing it.

Nobody, including the dead guy, made any good decisions that day.
