Jury selection has begun in Ahmaud Arbery's murder trial. Here's what you need to know about the dangerous argument at the center of the case.

.Arbery was shot and killed in February 2020 while jogging in Brunswick, Georgia, a small coastal city about 80 miles south of Savannah. Travis McMichael and his father, Gregory McMichael — the two men who confronted Arbery — as well as William Bryan — the man who recorded the deadly shooting — face several charges, including murder, aggravated assault and false imprisonment.

Each of the defendants has pleaded not guilty. The McMichaels said they pursued Arbery because they thought he was a burglary suspect, and Travis McMichael’s attorneys said he shot Arbery in self-defense. Bryan claimed he was merely a witness, despite also pursuing Arbery. There has been no evidence linking Arbery to a burglary.

Jury selection in the trial for three white men charged with murder in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, began MondayErin Clark / Getty Images; MSNBCThe case centers largely on a now-defunct Georgia law that essentially gave private citizens the right to arrest people they believe committed a crime and whether a jury will be convinced the three men who went after Arbery were fearful for their lives. headtopics.com

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, signed a repeal of the Civil War-era law in May after facing pressure from civil rights activists. Still, the law could factor heavily into the outcome of this case.According to the old law, “A private person may arrest an offender if the offense is committed in his presence or within his immediate knowledge. If the offense is a felony and the offender is escaping or attempting to escape, a private person may arrest him upon reasonable and probable grounds of suspicion.”

There are reasons to believe citizen's arrests involve the same disparate treatment as arrests conducted by police.In an attempt to bolster their claims that a citizen's arrest was justified, defense attorneys for the McMichaels are staking their arguments in unfounded allegations that Arbery was a threat and had acted aggressively due to a mental health condition. Earlier this month, a judge declined the defense's request to present Arbery's mental health records as evidence during the trial. He ruled that a registered nurse's"highly questionable diagnosis" in 2018 that Arbery suffered from mental illness could unfairly prejudice the jury,

No ‘blank slate’ jurors in county shaken by Ahmaud Arbery slayingWith jury selection underway in a Georgia community of 85,000, it seems increasingly likely that some of the jurors who are ultimately chosen will have preconceived opinions on and personal ties to Ahmaud Arbery's killing. Well I’m from the UK and am well aware of this case. Most informed citizens who care about their communities would also be aware of it, I should imagine. an all yt jury Sorta like how all of the white murderer's who kill unarmed black people get the support of whites right

No 'blank slate' jurors in county shaken by Arbery slayingThe judge and attorneys trying to select jurors in the trial over Ahmaud Arbery’s killing aren’t finding many prospects with a “blank slate.” Some remain in the jury pool despite already knowing a lot about what happened, or the people involved.

It's proving difficult to find a jury in the trial for Ahmaud Arbery's killing. Potential jurors either know the case well, know the defendants or are scaredFinding jurors to sit in the trial for the three men charged in Ahmaud Arbery's killing is proving difficult. Many said they have already formed strong opinions about the case, know the defendants or are scared to sit. It’s because of over-sensationalizing the case on TV! I believe the news and opinion media caused this problem.

Felon I was expecting to hear that police shot Arbery because that would make more sense; but no, it was ordinary citizens taking the law into their own hands? Not shocking: it took pressure from the media to even get the local police department to investigate his murder. Bs
