WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department announced federal hate crime charges Wednesday in the death of a Georgia man who was killed while out for a run last year. The criminal case charging the three men in connection with the death of Ahmaud Arbery is the most significant civil rights prosecution undertaken to date by the Biden administration Justice Department. It comes as federal officials have moved quickly to open sweeping investigations into troubled police departments as civil rights takes center stage among the department's priorities. Travis McMichael and his father, Gregory, and a third man, William “Roddie” Bryan, are all charged with one count of interference with civil rights and attempted kidnapping. The McMichaels are also charged with using, carrying and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

ray8fisher These men look like the definition of white trash. blaireerskine Why so many of these psycho-bigots all got that tiny-eyed, narrow-focus McSquinty-eyed, hate-y’all-deep look to them? Is it a requirement to be part of the “Braindead Evil Bigots’ Club”? Or just an after-effect? blaireerskine They must be illegal immigrants

drewberning 🤢🤮🤢🤮🤢🤮 Lesson: don’t let a black guy yank on your shotgun barrel or you’ll be up on federal charges. To everyone saying that he was trespassing on developing property: 1. That is not penalty by death. And more importantly 2. There is security footage of many white people tresspassing the same plot of land for exploration and jogs. You’re going to say to kill them too?

Amerikkka is getting charged. Watch for backlash. The bot tweets of ' this can't stand!! THEY will come after you next!!' I’ll say again, I saw a still from the video and it was one of, if not the worst thing I’ve ever seen in America. It was a hunt, by an old white man propped up in the back of a pickup truck. Absolutely horrible.

In 2021 all that recent history shows us is don't stop recording.....video tape EVERYTHING....even if ur stupid enough to video tape the evidence against yourself Good TimScottSC

Pathetic article No mention of the father's ties to law enforcement. The father was an ex-cop, racist ex-cop that murdered a Black man and this article makes NO MENTION of it. That's garbage. You did however perpetuate a lie without proof a burglary was committed. TRASH article These racist deviants think they are still living in the 1950s where they can do whatever they want to any passing black person.

It is now a hate crime to guard your property from POC. Throw the key away. While out for a run = while stealing stuff 👏👏👏Bout freakin time! Thank you A.G. Merrick Garland. Good. It's about damn time!! It's INSANE how long it took for this atrocity to be officially charged as a hate crime! TheLifeOfAhmaudArberyMattered JusticeForAhmaudArbery

AstraZeneca says U.S. data load for U.S. COVID-19 vaccine approval very bigAstraZeneca (AZN.L) is working as fast as possible to compile data on its COVID-19 vaccine to apply for U.S. approval but the dataset is very big, executives said on Friday as the drugmaker faces delays to its submission.

🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 This is great news. AG Merrick Garland isn’t playing games. FINALLY. 👏 The idea of a hate crime is absurd- stop it with diversity and racial crime categories -if a man commits murder he wasn’t looking to play pool -charge him and try him and if heinous and premeditated sentence him to death- liberals have hate crimes and hate capital punishment!dumb

Must not have my shootings straight anymore, thought there were only 2. Whatever, about time since it was pretty open and shut Just FYI, one of the men was a cop. Gregory McMichael previously worked as a GCPD officer from 1982 to 1989, and as an investigator for the Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney's Office from 1995 to his retirement in May 2019 Wonder how many more lives he ruined.

Lynching - when three or more persons, which constitute a mob, put someone to death extralegally, without court sanction, without legal sanction, and they do it for the purpose of tradition and/or whatever their version of justice is. From AhmaudArbery Good, they needed to be charged. you mean he was out breaking into construction sites and stealing shit. you forgot to tell that story did you

‘They will slaughter us’: Afghans who worked with US beg for visas as troop withdrawal loomsUS veterans groups are calling on the Biden administration to evacuate Afghans who worked with American troops during the war and Taliban would target If they served with our men they should be protected leaving them to be hunted down and killed by the Taliban would be cruel. Let’s bring them back. America welcomes hero’s.

NOBODY should be gunned down just taking a run/jog in their neighborhood.JusticeforAhmaudArbery. Really sad situation hope this gives his family some peace Well it's about time. Love to see that! It's the least law enforcement could do. Those three men should rot in hell for nothing short of 'lynching' another human being. AhmaudArbery

What’s the point? Already indicted fir murder. Anything political here? Overcharging for political purposes usually backfires. I guess DOJ is covering it’s bets in case there is an acquittal. Have a little faith in the decent folk in GA. That's one that is deserved. It was outrageous Going to be a very long stay in the pen for these good old boys. Wonder if they know that most of the people in Georgia prisons are black.

He grabbed the gun. Total novice move. He should have not done that. Because once he did, it was a fight to the death.🤷‍♂️ I’m one of the three, and I bet you won’t find me.

Will you sit back and watch? Or will you do something?

This is great news because it was a hate crime. In other news Ahmaud Arbery wasn't out for a run so can you fix that statement. I completely forgot about this one, thank god they took all 3 of those assholes down. “Out for a run” Pound salt. Duh Those white men have: mental disease... Or low blood sugar... or are actually attracted to black men... I'm losing track of these excuses... which one are they using this week to say it's not racism?

Better late than never I guess. Those animals need to stay off our streets.

We want convictions!!!! With maximum sentences!!! CUPCAKEWILLIAM6 Let’s be honest, three violent right wing terrorists have been charged. Calling them men insults everyone of that gender. Amazon_Queenn Next time they should become a police before shooting down a black man while jogging and minding his business.

I never want to hear the 'both sides' are the same B.S. again. Elections matter. Wish there was a way to go back and correct Trayvon Martin verdict. Zimmerman was guilty. Period. Why does a defendant get to appeal a guilty verdict but prosecution gets 1 shot Let’s hope the original murder charges stick. Defense is saying prosecution withheld evidence. If the state’s charges don’t stick, can the federal charges be upheld?

Actually he was prowling a job site for tools/materials to steal. That said, he didn’t need to be shot...but you don’t have to lie about the circumstances. The criminal case charging the three men in connection with the death of Ahmaud Arbery is the most significant civil rights prosecution undertaken to date by the Biden administration Justice Department. It comes as federal officials have moved quickly. . .
