The family of Ahmad Arbery is demanding for justice. Its been more than two months since Arbery was shot and killed in Georgia by 2 white men. Police say Arbery was chased by two white men in Brunswick who suspected him of a crime, but his family and friends say all the victim was doing was jogging.
Arbery’s mother Wanda Jones told CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca. “An arrest should have been made already.”The dispatcher then asks what the man is doing and the caller says, “running down the street.”
According to a police report, Gregory McMichael said he saw Arbery run by and recognized him from the break-ins. He and his 34-year-old son Travis McMichael then grabbed a shotgun and a pistol and got into their truck to go after Arbery, chased him down and shot him.
Gregory McMichael, one of the shooter is a former investigator for the Brunswick district attorney’s office. His relationship with the district attorney’s office led many to conclude that he may never face any arrest.
This incident once again highlights the dangerous situation in the South for many young African American men and women.
