Let’s examine the case of Ahmaud Arbery.
These two asshats killed a man on February 23rd. Since the elder is a former cop, the original prosecutor recused herself. The second prosecutor also recused, but gave a lengthy, if bullshit, memo as to why they shouldn’t be charged. The third is finally taking this to the grand jury after two months.
Let’s dispense with the citizens arrest bullshit. They did not witness a crime, nor did they have reason to believe a crime was in progress. That latter is proved by them asking Ahmaud to stop so they “can talk with him.” This also wasn’t anywhere near self-defense. If anyone had a justifiable claim of self-defense if was Ahmaud.
Yet, it took three prosecutors before they were arrested and charged?
Was it racism? Most likely. Was it a former cop getting preferential treatment? Fuck yes.
So, why should a community historically treated poorly by cops, look at this and not feel threatened?
