GEORGIA POLICE ATTEMPTED TO TASE AHMAUD ARBERY BACK IN 2017!

FROM THE GUARDIAN: Police attempted to use a Taser on Ahmaud Arbery, the slain Georgia jogger, after questioning why he was sitting alone in his car in a park one morning in November 2017, according to records and a police video obtained by the Guardian.

The video comes to light as law enforcement in the area faces scrutiny after Arbery was shot dead by two white men while out for a run in February.

Police did not initially arrest Gregory and Travis McMichael, who chased down and killed the unarmed Arbery, and a prosecutor assigned to the case wrote a lengthy memo explaining why the killing was legally justified.

In a joint statement to the Guardian, lawyers working for the Arbery family described the video as a clear depiction of ‘a situation where Ahmaud was harassed by Glynn county police officers’.

In a joint statement to the Guardian lawyers working for the Arbery family described the video as a clear depiction of “a situation where Ahmaud was harassed by Glynn county police officers”.

The lawyers said there was “no justifiable reason” for Arbery to be threatened with a Taser. “This appears to be just a glimpse into the kind of scrutiny Ahmaud Arbery faced not only by this police department, but ultimately regular citizens like the McMichaels and their posse, pretending to be police officers.”

THEY HAVE BEEN ARRESTED!

Georgia police on Thursday arrested a white father and son and charged them with murder in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old black man whose death in February had recently attracted widespread outrage.

Much of that anger has been focused on the fact that no charges had been brought against the father and son, Gregory and Travis McMichael, ages 64 and 34.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said that both men had been taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault in addition to murder. Travis McMichael fired the shot that killed Mr. Arbery, the state police agency said in a statement.

THE MCMICHAELS

In recent days, details surrounding the circumstances of Mr. Arbery’s death on Feb. 23 — and the fact that no one had been arrested — prompted a wave of outrage and concern from figures as diverse as former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., the basketball star LeBron James and Russell Moore, a prominent leader of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Those sentiments surged on Tuesday with the release of a graphic video that showed a black man, apparently Mr. Arbery, running toward a truck, engaging in a struggle with a man holding a shotgun, and then falling to the ground after three shotgun blasts went off.

The Georgia authorities, in a news release, stated that it was Travis McMichael who shot and killed Mr. Arbery.
