Arbery Murderers Convicted



Justice prevailed -- this time:

Three white men were found guilty Wednesday of felony murder in the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man who was running in their neighborhood when the defendants confronted him in February 2020.

The nearly all-white jury convicted Travis McMichael of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony.

Gregory McMichael and William Bryan were acquitted of the top charge. All now face up to life in prison.

Some sense of closure, perhaps, for the family of Ahmaud Arbery and perhaps the community and the nation.  

Counting the Rittenhouse verdict, today it's Justice 1, vigilantism 1.
