I am so glad for these verdicts. It is my sincere hope the DA who is charged with obstruction also gets handed her ass by a jury. Mr Arbery's family suffered with the loss of their son. Then they suffered again with lies being told to them by the DA and others in the justice system. They pushed the narrative with him as a criminal and his shooting as having been justified when it was clearly a modern day lynching.
The McMichaels couldn't stand a police officer telling them that the "black man" is not suspected of having stolen anything from the construction site and that he was not even committing criminial trespassing. I had not even heard until the testimony in the trial that they had already been told by a police officer that Arbery was not suspected of any crime. That really shows how deep their hatred lieds. I'm pretty well convinced they brought along their guns just hoping something might happen so that they could whip up some kind of justification in their minds as a reason to shoot him. They would show the recording over and over, like the old lynching cards of old. So, I hope the elder McMichael reminds himself every single night how he told his son to "grab your gun and let's go get him".
I hope for a similar outcome in their federal hate crimes trial.
