It’s one thing to convict the men who murdered Ahmaud Arbery. It's another to claim that justice is upon us.

This news cycle is over and Arbery will slip out of our collective consciousness — if we let him.

. And in too many other cases, it never happens at all.Casting a wider lens, it’s impossible to escape the conclusion that our system doesn’t always achieve justice.Each of the defendants on trial for Arbery’s murder was accused of multiple murder charges based on different sets of facts and provisions of Georgia law. Travis McMichael, the triggerman, was convicted on all of the murder charges against him, including a count of intentional malice murder. His father, who was with him but did not pull the trigger, was acquitted on the intentional murder charge, but convicted on multiple counts of felony murder, including one for aggravated assault with the firearm he knew his son had with him the day Arbery was killed (he had yelled at Travis to grab it as they raced to their truck.) And Roddie Bryant, who joined the chase, was acquitted on the felony murder count involving McMichael’s gun, but convicted on ones involving the use of the vehicles to assault and false imprisonment of Arbery.
