A jury has found all three men charged in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery guilty of murder. Follow here for live updates.\n
Vice President Harris says Ahmaud Arbery's "life had meaning"The guilty verdicts for all three men charged in killing Ahmaud Arbery last year send"an important message," Vice President Kamala Harris said in a statement this afternoon.
"Today, the jury rendered its verdicts and the three defendants were found guilty of murdering Ahmaud Arbery," the statement said."Still, we feel the weight of grief. Ahmaud Arbery should be alive, and nothing can take away the pain that his mother Wanda Cooper-Jones, his father Marcus Arbery, and the entire Arbery family and community feel today. I share in that pain."
Harris added:"These verdicts send an important message, but the fact remains that we still have work to do. The defense counsel chose to set a tone that cast the attendance of ministers at the trial as intimidation and dehumanized a young Black man with racist tropes. The jury arrived at its verdicts despite these tactics. Ahmaud Arbery was a son. He was a brother. He was a friend. His life had meaning. We will not forget him. We honor him best by continuing the fight for justice." headtopics.com

Hell to the no!!!Oh he was peacefully protesting when his car just suddenly plowed down hundreds of people!!Dam SUV Justice at last! Let them rot
They were 100% guilty. But I am sure the looters n rioters are not happy. NOT GUILTY would have meant CHRISTMAS shopping plus fires !!!!! What a shame , the thug got what he deserved for being in the wrong neighborhood Thank God, thank justice. The thought of those three men makes me cringe. RIP Aubrey!!!

Ahmaud Arbery death trial live updates: Jury begins deliberationsBREAKING: Jury begins deliberations in the trial of three men charged in the death of Ahmaud Arbery. Three men charged in the racially biased MURDER of Ahmaud Arbery. Hopefully the jurors (11 Whites + 1 token Black) really look at the evidence and come back with the correct verdict. GUILTY. Ahmaud will not be with his family this Thanksgiving.
Have a great life in prison. What a difference one judge and jury makes. I need everyone's support I thought they were getting off because the jury was 11 white people and only one black? See what happens if you present a good case, doesn't matter what the skin color is. No one wants murderers running free in society.
It’s odd there’s no mention in the coverage if they will be released pending sentencing or remanded to jail. Unusual. Yes!!! Thank goodness Thank God you this guy wasn’t sitting on the bench
Ahmaud Arbery death trial live updates: 3 found guilty of murderJUST IN: Laura Hogue, one of Gregory McMichael’s lawyers, said she was “very disappointed” and attorney Frank Hogue said they will appeal, which can only begin once sentencing is done. Tell her to get a pedicure before she files her case. MalcolmNance The Hogue’s are despicable attorneys!!! No one cares what racist lawyers who embarrassed themselves to the detriment of their clients have to say. Start the disbarment proceedings.
Good! Don’t drop the soap 🧼 😃 🙏🏼 I was told this wasn’t possible because the system is racist.

Yes! Justice hitting out of the park this month. Congrats to the Jury for a sound decision. So many bad liberal hot takes… a Twitter tradition since 1876! Upper middle class white guys. Remember this demographic is also who is most seen at MAGA rally’s. CNNSotu Can’t wait to hear jemelehill and JoyAnnReid ranting about our court system and white supremacy after this verdict.
Those of you comparing this case to other cases and questioning why some verdicts lead to guilty and some to not guilty. Not all court cases are the same. Justice is a process, not a verdict/outcome. Now the jury in canosha can learn something here we need a jury that's not ignorant and bias Yesssss You forgot to add “white” to the defendants. Gotta do better at trying to keep us divided CNN. Justice served!

Ahmaud Arbery Murder Trial: Prosecutor Rejects Self-Defense ClaimsClosing arguments began Monday in the trial of the three Georgia men charged in the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, with the prosecution attacking defense claims that the men acted legally under citizen-arrest and self-defense laws Cannot outrun a gun, once ahmaud saw that & knew it would be 3 to 1 soon, his fight or flight kicked in & he wasn’t a pushover, that’s why he went back to the house in broad daylight to see construction better, because he knew he wasn’t doing anything wrong. Not carrying anything
