Mother seeks justice after son shot while jogging in Brunswick, pair involved in killing not arrested

It’s been over two months since a young black man jogging in Brunswick, Ga., was gunned down by two white men who said they thought he was a possible burglar.

Ahmaud Arbery’s mother wants to know where is the justice.

“I just think about how they could allow these two men to kill my son and not be arrested, that’s what I can’t understand,” Wanda Cooper told news partner First Coast News.

A police report states about 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, Glynn County officers responded to Satilla and Holmes drives where shots were fired. They found Arbery, 25, dead on the scene.

Gregory McMichael, who worked several years for the Brunswick Police Department before serving as an investigator in the Brunswick District Attorney’s Office, told police there were several break-ins in the neighborhood. He said he saw Arbery running down Satilla Drive and asked his son Travis McMichael to help him confront him.

McMichael and his son got a shotgun and handgun because they “didn’t know if Arbery was armed or not.”

The father and son got into their truck and drove down Satilla toward Burford Drive. Gregory McMichael stated when they arrived at Holmes Drive, they saw Arbery running down Burford, according to the report.

Gregory McMichael told police they attempted to cut off Arbery and shouted “stop, stop, we want to talk to you.”

McMichael pulled up next to Arbery, and Travis McMichael got out of the truck with the shotgun. According to statements, that’s when the father said Arbery attacked his son and the two men started fighting over the shotgun. Travis McMichael fired a shot and then a second shot.




After video appears to show black jogger gunned down by 2 white men in coastal Georgia, family demands arrests

The fatal shooting of a black man — apparently recorded on video in February and posted online Tuesday by a local radio station host — will go to a grand jury in coastal Georgia, according to a district attorney.

Elements of the disturbing video are consistent with a description of the shooting given to police by one of those involved in the incident.

Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was jogging in a neighborhood outside Brunswick on February 23 when a former police officer and his son chased him down, authorities said. According to a Glynn County Police report, Gregory McMichael later told officers that he thought Arbery looked like a person suspected in a series of recent break-ins in the area.

After they chased down Arbery, McMichael told police, Arbery and McMichael’s son Travis struggled over his son’s shotgun. McMichael said two shots were fired before Arbery fell to the street, the report said.


S. Lee Merritt, an attorney for the Arbery family, said in a statement that the two men involved in the chase “must be taken into custody pending their indictment.”

Gov. Brian Kemp said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has offered resources to Durden for his investigation. “Georgians deserve answers,” Kemp tweeted.

Kemp also retweeted the GBI’s post that Durden “formally requested the GBI to investigate the death of Ahmaud Arbery.”

It was powerful when the judge did a minute of silence to stress the 5 minutes he was running from his murderers.
What he said also made me realize what was it, something like 12 minutes from when he first entered the house under construction to when he was dead?! I think that's what I added it up to. He didn't say it but detailing the time he entered and left, etc. sent my mind automatically to the math on it as I'd bet it did many watching.

I also sat there and wondered if EVEN at that point it occurred to any of the three men to put themselves in Arbery's place in that minute of silence/running and the fear he must have had, etc. And I felt or knew that NO, that was not what was going through their heads, I'd bet on it... Maybe Bryan, not the other two. I feel they are just like this, it is so their way of thinking and they are incapable of putting themselves in someone else's shoes in their head and incapable of seeing the victim as a human equal.

So many lives ruined but time after time these men failed to do the right thing, say the right thing and in fact tried just the opposite... To try to rule the narrative and more...

The family of Ahmaud Arbery rejected a plea deal in the federal civil rights case of two of the men convicted of shooting and killing Arbery while he was jogging in a Brunswick, Georgia, neighborhood in February 2020, the family's attorney said.

Earlier this week, the Department of Justice approached Arbery's mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones, about a plea deal that would have Travis McMichael, 35, and his father Gregory McMichael, 66, spend 30 years in prison if they admit that what they did was motivated by hate, according to Arbery family lawyer Lee Merritt.

Cooper-Jones told "CBS Mornings" she rejected the deal because she wants the men to stand trial in court for those charges.

Well I can't blame her but I'm not sure I'd do the same. I'd really have to weigh it, they have life plus with no parole and they would admit motivation by hate which to me, admission would be the biggest thing by far over almost anything else but that's me.

I do get and understand this country perhaps should see a case like this but that's if it is televised. Federal isn't is it? I do think it would be good for others who may be like these men or thinking of such things to see the charges, the trial and the outcome..

Yes, it's Federal so it won't be televised but we've already heard the details from the criminal trial so at least we got to see the evidence as it was presented to the jury. I personally don't want to or need to watch the Federal case because we already know the facts showed a lot of racial bias, at least with the McMichaels, imo.

I agree. I'm not going to judge her on wanting that day in court, etc. as well but I really don't think I'd do the same as like you said, it pretty much has been shown who they are, what they did, why and they don't have more than one life to put them away for any more purpose anyhow. If for some reason though they had received a light sentence, I'd definitely pursue the other. And agreeing to take 30 years and admit the reason for it I also think is significant that they would do that. Of course, that is if the men agreed to it, this could have been just a proposal by the federal prosecutors?

Thanks for posting this @daisy7 ! I watched it on YouTube and cried. I just adore Judge Timothy. Here's a bit of biographical information on him:

Has been named a Rising Star of the Georgia Bar by Law and Politics and the Atlanta Magazine on 3 occasions. Was appointed to the Supreme court Eastern Judicial Circuit in February 2012 by Governor Nathan Deal.

Hogue (the long, dirty toenails lady) is speaking now. Still trying to blame Arbery for his death (if he hadn't been there, he wouldn't have been killed). And, Greg McMichael is remorseful, but he can't express his remorse cuz of the charges he is facing.
Sorry I can't post a link (because I don't know how to from this tablet), but she resigned from her position with the National Criminal Defense College "following weeks of criticism ". In a letter she said she was resigning due to the direction the college was going. (Sure, Laura, that's the ticket)🤥. Source: First Coast News.
She makes me sick <sorry- not sorry >.
