Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 27, 2020

But on a Sunday afternoon in February, as Mr. Arbery ran through a suburban neighborhood of ranch houses and moss-draped oaks, he passed a man standing in his front yard, who later told the police that Mr. Arbery looked like the suspect in a string of break-ins.

"But others contend that Mr. Arbery was up to no good. On the day of the shooting, and apparently moments before the chase, a neighbor in Satilla Shores called 911, telling the dispatcher that a black man in a white T-shirt was inside a house that was under construction and only partially closed in.

"And he's running right now," the man told the dispatcher. "There he goes right now!"

And those white red neck think that is an excuse for murder him. I pray there is a God and that he will punish those who get away with murder in this life.

They need to fry the 2 racists responsible for murdering this man.
This is Trump's Amerikkka!

Charge these 2, throw their asses in the electric chair and I'll pull the lever and cook some racist redneck MF'ers!

Tired of this crap!

I've often meandered thru houses that are under construction. I love to look and I love looking how house framers solve problems. Yeah, I know it's probably technically illegal but I still do it because what could be the harm. Of course I'm white, so the rules are different for me.

Umm. Everyone knows that if you are black you NEVER EVER run in a white neighborhood.

Especially in Georgia. We are just lucky we weren't treated to a good ole boy southern style lynching and then having him dragged behind a truck for a few miles for good measure.

Where's JeffJ to say the police acted responsibly?

#2 | Posted by aborted_monson, So the young man grabs a police shotgun and was shot during the struggle. Why don't you try the same the next time you encounter the police. See what happens.

Brunswick? Good 'ole boy area for sure.

Now I am NOT going to say he is innocent of robbery - maybe or maybe he doesn't match a "description" of a robbery suspect. But again we have two yahoo's running down a black man armed with guns in Georgia and someone saying they don't see evidence of a crime after they kill him because "he is a suspect in a crime". Neither one of them is Law Enforcement.

"...the pursuers had acted within the scope of Georgia's citizen's arrest statute, and that Travis McMichael, who held the shotgun, had acted out of self-defense." That line is such utter BS. Call the police. Follow him - fine. Two white men with guns in GA confronting a lone black man? Of course he's going to fight them. Police report doesn't mention if he had a cell phone either. Or what exactly the description of this supposed burglar was... What? 5'8"-6'2" Tall, About 160-180 pound,20-30 years of age and black?

So the citizen's arrest statute allows questioning and murder of anyone that fails to obey any yahoo that demands they stop? That REALLY doesn't make sense.

Racist Rednecks, think they are above the law.
This HAS to change in America. The Right is
FAR TOO CLOSE to extremist militias...

Christ, did we learn nothing from the Trayvon Martin case?

Keep your vigilante asses in the truck. The minute you step foot outside the truck with the intention of confronting someone, you're needlessly putting your neck on the line. Why put yourself or someone else's life in danger over a potential burglary? You interested in dying or killing someone over SOMEONE else's stuff?

Vigilante complexes are strong in the South, apparently. Maybe it's something in the water.

"Why don't you try the same the next time you encounter the police."

The police encountered him. Much in the same way a hunter encounters their prey.

He was black. That's not the first rule.

I believe it is something like:

Do not Run. No matter how scared you are of white men with guns.

You interested in dying or killing someone over SOMEONE else's stuff?

Clearly these men were very interested in the latter. Nothing like finding an excuse to murder a black guy.

This nation hasn't come very far since the 1800s.

Here's a better idea, don't be such a buck toothed hick that you grap yer popgun and go after the ------ running down them there street!

There's something really wrong in your head if you think the father/son jenius conduct was OK.

BTW you have no idea what actually happened. There's a real possibility he was acting in self-defense or fear of his own life by getting in that altercation.

From #23 "saw a man he suspected of burglary"

Notice the absence of the word "reasonably."
Suspicion must be reasonable, under the Fourth Amendment, for law enforcement to infringe upon the rights of the people.

This was a murder.

Not law enforcement, they were just plain old Gomer Pyles...

This wasn't the police -----, It was 2 lily white racist redneck hilljacks like yourself that decided they were going to kill a black guy, well, because they can. Cold blooded murder.

You'd think you'd be more concerned about incidents like that this as you claim to have (fictional) black family members. That could have been one of your (fictional) black sons running through that neighborhood.

You are in serious need of psychological help.

#25 | Posted by aborted_monson, I guess the selection of who to persecute makes a big difference where you are. I guess those members of the IWW, who lynched and burned out the Japanese farmers back when should be excused. I guess the absence of black people up there was an excuse. We had the Klan, you had the Wobblies.

#25 | Posted by aborted_monson I have one son, and I doubt he would run from anything. I would love to introduce you two sometime. He is 6'1 and weighs 200, very cut. He has recently opened a private security service in Atlanta. When some celebrity visits Atlanta, they generally call him. The big reason, all his employees are clean, (no arrest record), all are veterans and generally practice martial arts.
