On February 23, 2020, Ahmuad Arbery, an unarmed African American man was fatally shot while out on a jog in Glynn County, Georgia.
Although this killing happened months ago, it has received a lot of attention recently. A video of the incident was released onto the media, where it gained a lot of popularity because of the obvious racism behind the killing.
The two men that shot him, Gregory and Travis McMichael, claimed Arbery looked like a suspect in a string of recent burglaries. Therefore, they thought it was their duty to stock up on guns and hop onto their truck and end this man’s life.
Protests are being held nation-wide to get justice for Ahmuad and his family. This just shows how racist and bias our world is today.
These are the two men who shot him, they are father and son. Travis McMichael is 34 and his father, Greg Michmicheal, is 64. They were taken into custody on Thursday, May 7.
