A Third Man Arrested In The Killing Of Ahmaud Arbery
In a shocking turn of events a third man has been arrested in the killing of Ahmaud Arbury.
50-year-old William "Roddie" Bryan Jr. the man who filmed the incident with this cellphone that leaked the video online earlier this month has been charged of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment per Associated Press.
The video footage sparked nationwide outrage which lead to the arrest of 64-year-old Gregory McMichael and his 34-year-old son Travis McMichael for killing 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery almost three months after the incident.
The AP also report the police report from Glynn County says that Gregory McMichael told law enforcement that Arbury began running back the direction from which he came and Roddy attempted to block him which was unsuccessful.
On February 23rd, 2020 Bryan's video captures Ahmaud was he was jogging in the street on the left side of the road with a pickup truck parked in the road in front of him with Gregory on the bed of the truck and Travis at the drivers side door.
As Ahmaud tried to move past the truck from the passengers side then comes back around in front where you can hear a gun shot and see Travis and Ahmaud struggling over the gun where you hear a second gun shot as Ahmaud punching Travis and the third and final shot you see Ahmaud staggers and falls to the ground dead.
Bryan claims he is innocent and didn't participate in the killing of Arbury.
The more I read about this the more upset I become about this matter!
Three men had nothing else better to do than to track down Ahmaud and attempt to hold him against his will over an accusation instead of notifying the authorities and ends up killing him.
I'll also say this even if Ahmaud was guilty of whatever they accused him of doing that STILL don't give them the clearance to kill him!
Even though all three are arrested I am not excited until I see a conviction that fits the crime and we know how the justice system seems to show their biased judgement when it comes to cases like this.
Remember Trayvon Martin?
I'm stressed out and overwhelmed!
