Here is the story with the video. It shows a man getting shot and killed.


This happened back in February. I didn't hear anything about this. The local DA initially did not want to charge the shooters (one was a former police officer). The shooters claim that they were trying to make a citizen's arrest, saying Arbery fit the discription of someone suspected of committing a string of robberies. Arbery wrestles with one of the gunmen and is shot dead in the street. The original DA says that it was self-defense at that point.

I call b.s. on that. This guy is out for a run, is ambushed by a group of white guys with guns playing cop. His actions were completely reasonable, and theirs were not. Arbery had no stolen material on him, and according to his family, he was out for a run. These men need to go to jail for a long time.

The retired police detective facing murder charges in the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery was stripped of his power to arrest people at least twice in his career for repeatedly skipping use-of-force training, his personnel records show.
Gregory McMichael, who’s being held in a Georgia detention center with his co-defendant son, ended up losing his law enforcement certification just four months before he retired last year, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post this week.

White people gonna white.
Terrible, but I've seen much worse. And I honestly wouldn't have had the same restraint the driver had. Good for him, but he shouldn't have to deal with butt crevasses like the two guys asking stupid questions and trying to insult his intelligence.

How the idiot is president of anything beats the heck out of me. I hope the HOA is embarrassed enough to boot his arse from the neighborhood.

A group of black men exercising their Second Amendment rights showed up in the Georgia neighborhood where Ahmaud Arbery was killed to demonstrate for freedom and liberty because...

Oh, wait, I’m showing my journalistic bias by reporting this story in the same way that outlets reported on the white protesters who storm state capital buildings and order $5 foot-longs at Subway while cosplaying their favorite Call of Dutyavatars.

My bad. Sometimes I be on that “all men are created equal” shirt

Instead, I’ll defer to an objective organization like CBS 46:.........


Of course, the story doesn’t mention that the gun-toting negro thugs were part of a group of more than 1,000 people. They probably also forgot to write the part where the crowd terrorized the neighborhood by furiously releasing balloons, as WTOC reports.

Of course, the WTOC story made sure to differentiate between the peaceful protesters who were honoring Arbery and the black militants who were also peaceful and also honoring Arbery.

But that’s understandable. I mean, look at these scary black men acting the same way as white men who are never arrested..........

While I agree with the sentiment of that article, it's a bit too far IMHO. I don't like that it goes into the police keeping an eye on the armed men in a large protest. If course they did. Just as the police keep an eye on the armed white men. That they exercised restraint and did not escalate the situation tells me the writer is assigning his own bias and creating a story which ironically he is accusing others of doing.

It was a strong start that ultimately left me feeling like just another person trying to put a wedge into our culture.

Give credit where it's due and call out the wrong. Going beyond that to assign nefarious motive sinks to the level you're calling out making you no better.

This case is so simple.

It’s not whites being racist.

It’s these backwoods wannabe vigilantes being complete idiots.

They don’t represent the white race.
They are members of the white race, but aren’t the poster child.
They are without a doubt racist idiots.

Just like when a black person committs a crime, it’s one person being an idiot.
It’s not representative of the black race.

It is what it is, nothing more.

Its not indicative of anything, as whites aren’t hunting and killing blacks all over the place (despite what Lebron says). Nor are blacks committing crimes all over the place, even as one commits a crime.

There are roughly 234,000,000 white people in the US. These 2 jokers are just 2 idiots....not even a blip on the radar. If the Rose Bowl was filled every day by different white people....(100,000 K a day) it would be filled for 2,340 days (that’s 6.5 years) before the two idiots finally walked in.

I know someone will say.....corrupt politics, wouldn’t have been sniffed if no video.
That’s possibly true, and possibly not. No one knows for sure either way, because it was released, and they were arrested.

There are more idiots out there, white and black. It sucks, but there are. However, it’s a very small percentage, and no matter how much we protest, teach, whatever, there will always be crazy idiots who are racist.

So my advice is simple. Live your life as a humble and serving person, helpful and kind to others, white and black.....and there’s a HIGH chance life will work out for you.

Is it humility for an unaffected party to tell affected parties what is/isn’t racist?
I’d offer that’s the opposite of humility

Yea, this is pretty much how racists try to explain away racism.
