Ahmaud Arbery shooting: American celebrities demand justice for a murdered black man while jogging

African American community is going through a real tragedy during this period of coronavirus. A viral video posted on the internet has sparked widespread outrage over the racist murder of a black jogger.

But what happened?

On February 23, 2020 in Brunswick, in the southern United States, a black man, Ahmaud Arbery, 35, was killed by a former police officer and his son while he was jogging in the state of Georgia.

Despite the evidence, it took 74 days for his alleged murderers Gregory McMichael and his son Travis to be detained.

Who are the murderers?

  • Gregory McMichael is the primary suspect. He is a retired 64 year old police officer. he worked for a long time as an investigator for the local prosecutor’s office.
  • His son Travis Travis, 34 years old.

What do we see on the video?

In this recording, we see a black jogger, Ahmaud Arbery running along a road. Former police officer Gregory McMichael sits in his vehicle. And his son Travor goes to meet Arbery. As he bypasses the white pickup, the jogger is stopped by Travys who grabs it. Arbery frees himself and begins to flee, but the ex-officer’s son fires his pistol three times at the jogger, who dies quickly.

In their defense, the alleged murderers said they were dealing with a burglar active in the neighborhood. The Georgia State Police and Justice Services are also singled out for their lack of reaction before the video was released.

Mobilization of American celebrities.

Many celebrities, politicians and internet users are demanding justice for the murdered jogger. They express their anger on social networks. The mobilization is accentuated on the hashtag #IRunWithMaud

Ahmaud Arbery. Went for a jog. Chased down. Hunted. Murdered. Its been months and his killers walk free. I dont want to beg, plead, reason, cry, or scream for you to see us as worthy of our breath. If you need to be cajoled into empathy, you are not who you think you are. I don’t want to wonder if you see our humanity. What do you see when you cast your eyes on us? We are worthy of peace, joy, grace, compassion, and every damn protection we are afforded by existing. We shot past sick and tired a long time ago. May God hold Ahmaud Arbery’s family and loved ones up to the light of goodness and hold them there. We keep fighting. We will not stop. There will be justice. #ahmaudarbery #justiceforahmaudarbery

Ahmaud Arbery. We know your name. May you rest in peace and know that we are fighting for you. You deserved better than this. You were taken from the world almost 3 months ago and still no charges filed or arrests made. To Ahmaud’s mother: there are no words to explain how sorry I am for your loss. And that we still live in a world where this kind of disgusting, brutal violence and disrespect of life is still a reality. We demand justice for Ahmaud because we deserve justice. Perhaps you know his name by now, or perhaps you don’t. But please pay attention everyone. This is what’s happening in our country. This is what’s STILL happening in our country. And not only in Georgia. It’s happening everywhere. #ahmaudarbery #justiceforahmaud
