Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 06, 2020

The fatal shooting of a black man--apparently recorded on video in February and posted online Tuesday by a local radio station host--will go to a grand jury in coastal Georgia, according to a district attorney. Elements of the disturbing video are consistent with a description of the shooting given to police by one of those involved in the incident.

Graphic video appears to show Ahmaud Arbery, 25 of GA., whose family says he was out for a run, confronted by 2 men who shot him dead saying they thought he was a burglar. A prosecutor wants a grand jury to decide whether the men should be charged.

This happened in March.

Imagine if the guy who got hunted for sport was the one with the gun in in hand...

Cop: Why did you do this?

Guy who was lynched: Well,,, these guys looked like they were up to no good so me and 2 of my buddies hunted them like deer.

Cop: Ok. Nice shootin son. Have a nice day.

If the video hadn't been leaked they would have skated.

They still might.

If the races of the individuals were reversed the guys that murdered the jogger would already be behind bars serving a life sentence.

The Guardian gives a slightly different and more disturbing version of events:

A cop and his son jumped in a white pickup truck and murdered a black man guilty of going for a jog.

Local prosecutors do nothing.

No one does anything.

No one cares.

Just another day in Trump's America

Thank God for video. It has turned out to be the biggest bane to prosecutors and police officers everywhere.

Cops HATE being on video. They say, "I am too" pointing to their body cams, but their footage conveniently disappears or gets edited quite often when their wrong doing happens.

"The 911 calls show the call taker was asking the men what Arbery is doing that was of criminal concern, Merritt said.
"They didn't give any answer for that, they said, 'He's a black man running down our road.'"

Local grand jury wil not find evidence.
This is Georgia.

This makes the blood turn cold and boil simultaneously. Racist pieces of ---- emboldened in this environment. Cop and his son? Go figure. ------- pig and suckling. The racism rampant in the police force throughout the country is absolutely insane. No punishment too harsh for these two. I am against the death penalty, but torture might be acceptable in this case.

I better not hear one ------- word about it was self defense. You don't get to run a guy down in a truck with Gunther standing in truck bed with a gun like you are spot lighting deer and then claim self defense. Absolute insanity.

Why? Is there something in doubt?

Just a thought....has any jogger really ever also been someone that breaks into houses? I've never heard of one single one. Every runner I've ever known was a decent person, I don't think real criminals have the stuff it takes for long distance running. They want short cuts, that won't help them in long distance running.

he would present the case to the next available grand jury in Glynn county. That grand jury might not meet until mid-June or later because courts were under restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, he said.

What's happening in the meantime?

This father and son should be in jail.

I bet they're hanging out at home. Being treated like heroes by the neighbors.

Boaz is probably starting a gofundme for the father and son.
