3 men who chased, killed Ahmaud Arbery due in federal court Tuesday

Three Georgia men are set to appear before a federal judge Tuesday, their first court appearance since they were indicted on federal hate crime charges in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man who was chased and shot while jogging near his home.

Greg McMichael, a 65-year-old former police officer and his son, Travis McMichael, 35, armed themselves, got into a truck and chased Arbery while he was running on a public street in the Satilla Shores neighborhood of Brunswick, Georgia on Feb. 23, 2020. A neighbor, William "Roddie" Bryan joined the chase, used his truck to cut off Arbery and took video on his phone of Travis McMichael shooting Arbery three times at close range with a shotgun.

Arbery's death, along with those of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, who were killed by police, fueled months of racial justice protests around the country.

The McMichaels and Bryan, who are all white, were arrested last May ó more than two months after the killing ó following a storm of public outcry after video of Arbery's death was made public. They are charged with murder and aggravated assault.

1. May they be thrown in prison for the rest of their miserable lives.

They hunted him down and murdered him - pure and simple.

3. While we are trying to get rid of no knock warrants...

...we need to get rid of citizenís arrests. Going through the process of detaining someone, even if you are in the right (which these assholes were clearly in the wrong) is asking for trouble; either legal and/or the person may kill you in defense. Remember, the person you are trying to detain is seeing some random asshat try to arrest them as opposed to a uniformed cop. Even if under the law you are in the right, they donít know that; they might shoot you.

Citizenís arrest needs to go. Call the police and give them the information to make the arrest.

6. This is going to be an intersting case to follow

The three murderers will fall back on the 'citizen's arrest' law in Georgia
Even though it has been removed, I'll be curious if that prevents them from using it
I'm not up on what the 'Citizen's Arrest Law' in Georgia actually said, that it was used to protect lynchings tells me much of what I need to know about what's in it
