Georgia Man Arrested After Terror Threats Made to Ahmaud Arbery Protesters

Georgia Man Arrested After Terror Threats Made to Ahmaud Arbery Protesters”

Alicia Keys has backed the marketing campaign after the capturing of Mr Arbery.

District Attorney Jackie Johnson of the Brunswick Judicial District has said no prosecutors in her office told police not to arrest the McMichaels.

However, on Friday, Vic Reynolds, director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, said a neighbor of the McMichaels - William Bryan - is also under investigation, NBC News reported.

Carr said his office is "committed to a complete and transparent review of how the Ahmaud Arbery case was handled from the outset".

"We should maintain folks accountable for their actions".

The parents of a black man killed in a pursuit by two white men armed with guns called for immediate arrests Wednesday as they faced the prospect of waiting a month or longer before a Georgia grand jury could consider bringing charges.

Ahmaud Arbery was shot while jogging in broad daylight.

Lee Merritt, a lawyer representing the family of Ahmaud Arbery, poses for a photo by a mural in the likeness of Arbery painted by artist Theo Ponchaveli in Dallas.

Video of the incident surfaced on social media earlier this week and ignited outrage among activists who saw the death of Arbery, 25, as the latest USA case of white perpetrators killing a black man and going unpunished. They were charged with murder and aggravated assault.

Arbery, 25, who was black, was shot to death after being chased by white men in a pickup truck.

"I do believe that Ahmaud was just out for his daily jog", Wanda Cooper Jones, Ahmaud Arbery's mother, said.

"If anyone noticed that horrifying video of his killing, it's heartbreaking, unbelievably unacceptable and inhumane", singer Alicia Keys said in a statement to The Associated Press.

"No human being ought to be murdered and not obtain justice". The letter is demanding a quick trial and conviction of father and son, Gregory and Travis McMichael, who claimed they shot and killed Ahmaud because he matched the description of a criminal in the area.

The witness to the Ahmaud Arbery killing has reportedly received threats.

The state's Bureau of Investigation is now reviewing the case and Georgia's attorney general has vowed to "further" investigate the death of Ahmaud Arbery.

If the DOJ turned its back on this "obvious injustice", the coalition's letter said, it "will relinquish its role as the champion for the defenseless and send the unmistakable message that the federal government will not protect us from violence, prejudice, and injustice in our communities".

"It was Mr Bryan who videotaped the incident in question, disclosed the existence of the videotape, and invited a responding Glynn County Police Officer to sit with him in his truck where they watched the video together", Gough said.

The leaked video shows a black man running at a jogging pace.

The video appears to show the confrontation between Arbery and two men before the shooting that left Arbery dead in Brunswick, Georgia.

State investigators arrested a white former police officer, Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis, 34, on Thursday and charged with them with murder and aggravated assault in the February 23 killing in the small coastal town of Brunswick.
