Ahmaud Arbery is Responsible for His Own Death
On February 23, 2020, Ahmaud Arbery was running in the Satilla Shores neighborhood in Brunswick, GA, when two decent, gun-toting citizens followed him in their truck. And, because Arbery refused to stop and answer Gregory and Travis McMichael’s questions, he was shot, in broad daylight, in what the McMichaels and their lawyers are asserting to be an act of self-defense.
Ahmaud Arbery is an African American resident of the extended neighborhood, and he likes to run.
The father son McMichael team are a former cop and former coast guard ensign; they are white, they carry guns, spend much time viewing security recordings, and consider themselves to be the neighborhood’s armed guardians.
