I can’t believe this incident happened back in February, and the investigation just started in April.
According to the report, victim Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was shot dead in the Satilla Shores neighborhood after a confrontation with Gregory McMichael and his son, Travis McMichael. Both of whom were armed, according to the Glynn County Police.
McMichael and son were trying to make a citizen’s arrest, but Arbery’s mother says that the shooting was an “act of racial violence.”
What complicates the case is that McMichael (the father) is a retired investigator in the district attorney’s office. Again, I asked why did it take so long for an investigation to begin in this matter and this won’t help clear things up. Prosecutors claim the two acted within the scope of Georgia’s citizen’s arrest statute.
George E. Barnhill, the Waycross County D.A., recused himself for what would have been a conflict of interest, since McMichael worked in his office and on top of that, despite recusing himself from the case, Barnhill wrote a letter to the police department detailing how Arbery had a criminal past including a conviction for shoplifting and probation violation in 2018, the Times reported.
