Man who shot Ahmaud Arbery gets life sentence for hate crime​

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — The white man who fatally shot Ahmaud Arbery after chasing the 25-year-old Black man in a Georgia neighborhood was sentenced Monday to life in prison for committing a federal hate crime.
Travis McMichael was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Lisa Godbey Wood in the port city of Brunswick. His punishment is largely symbolic, as McMichael was sentenced earlier this year to life without parole in a Georgia state court for Arbery’s murder.
Wood said McMichael had received a fair trial.“And it’s not lost on the court that it was the kind of trial that Ahmaud Arbery did not receive before he was shot and killed,” the judge said. Before the sentencing, she heard from members of Arbery’s family. His mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones, said she feels every shot that was fired at her son everyday.

“It’s so unfair, so unfair, so unfair that he was killed while he was not even committing a crime,” she said.


GOOD!

Someone is bound to say: Why was the black man running through a white neighborhood, why didn't he stop when ordered to, and that this sentence is just Socialists blaming everything on the white man.

Wait for it.

Sometimes, justice is served.

Rot in prison, McMichael.

Hope his lawyer can get him protection in prison.

Otherwise, the life sentence amounts to a death sentence, which most liberals abhor.

Boo hoo.

McMichaels should have thought of that before he ran around his neighborhood shooting at an unarmed black man.

No one is advocating for his murder. But few lose sleep over it when murderers are themselves murdered in prison.

Here is the irony - it was actually Roddy Bryan's attorney who released the video of the killing hoping it would quell the rumors in town. Three white DAs reviewed the case and sat on it before the video was released.


May 5, 2020

A Brunswick radio station, WGIG, is given a copy of Bryan's video of the shooting by an attorney and posts it online. It becomes widely distributed on the internet, sparking a national uproar. Within hours, Durden announces a grand jury investigation. The same day, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp orders the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to take the case.

the rumors were something like a truck with a rebel flag chased somebody down and shot them in the back and he wanted to show that part wasn't true

It's both good and bad news.

The good news is he's guilty.

The bad news is that he gets to serve his time in a fed prison, which is better than a state one.

I'm just curious as to the proof that it was a "hate crime". The left claims all whites are racist, is that the evidence? I know all white shots black is a hate crime but none of the black shoots white is a hate crime. Why is there that difference.

What is it about today that conservatives need their hands held to look up stuff online? Is the intent to deflect?

GOOD!
That's awesome!!! Now he gets a life sentence added to his life sentence. He'll be double dead before he gets out of jail. We can't have racists ever be too dead to protect us from their hatred.

Seriously, this is so stupid. Why do people get excited about adding a sentence to a guy that's already in jail for life? What benefit is there to society by doing this crap?

Maybe the next ginned-up Bubba will think twice before waving his gun around unarmed people of a different race.

Even the death penalty doesn't stop murders. Go ahead and rub one out over this but it doesn't change a damned thing. The ONLY reason for crap like this is to make idiots feel better about themselves.

Come on!! Jaysus, you folks will always try that turn around trick, won't ya. It wasn't a hate crime, all you Socialists and Librels hate us poor white folks, blah blah blah. FYI, I am white. AND yes, I can recognize a hate crime when I see one and not feel picked on or insecure because I am white.
In Canada, remains of indigenous children are being found, do I cry about being picked on because some whites did a horrible thing? NOPE. Some whites DID DO a horrible thing. I don't blame "leftists" for highlighting that crime. It takes a grownup to admit when something was an injustice and not hide behind white fragility. Are you not a grownup?

SO, he should have walked? Right? After all, it was only a black man he killed. No biggie?
