Justice for Ahmaud Arbery didnt start off as a crime of murder

Post by nucksRnum1 »

Though the justice system appeared to work after the three white men who shot and killed Ahmaud Arbery were found guilty of felony murder, MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber explains how it nearly failed in this case.

It was good to see that the system worked in this case even while the defense had tried to trigger some bias by talking about Arbery having no socks to cover his long dirty toenails as a reason for the suspicious reaction by the three men ... there were questions raised by others in the legal industry about how far the defense went to advocate for the defendents

I found the defense to be slimy with their tactics
Glad justice was served - even tho there was concerns about the nearly all white Jury .

It just seemed so odd to me that all the headlines on this story had to stipulate that it was "Three white men" that killed this guy. What is the fixation with their race? If they committed murder, they committed murder. They being purple, green or blue has no bearing on that.

The fact that they represent the continued racism that exists pretty much sums up the "why" you might be wondering about ...

Also, why the fixation on the gender? Them being men, women, gender fluid has no bearing on that either!

This "racism" and it's continuation seems only to exist in the minds of those who want it to exist, and go looking for it constantly. I noticed that all the race-obsessed nutjobs out there totally ignored this event:

Andrew Coffee IV found not guilty on all counts of murder, attempted first degree murder

https://www.wpbf.com/article/andrew-cof ... s/38304640#

Andrew Coffee IV is African-American, but yet all of the headlines I read about his case didn't refer to him as "Andrew Coffee IV, black man, found not guilty". They just called him Andrew Coffee IV. Why the difference? It's almost as if the media is perpetuating racism in order to feed gullible fools the lie about there being racism under every rock, everywhere. It's just so sad.
pretty much sums up the "why" you might be wondering about ...
Pretty much doesn't do that at all.

And doesn't "three" sort of intimidate the reader? It is a "magic" number ...

It's because Arbery was murdered for the "crime" of jogging while black which those 3 dumb, white rednecks thought meant he was fleeing a crime. The truck had a Confederate flag on it and they called him racist names while he was under attack from these racists. Race is very much relevant in this young man's murder.

Given the amount of disinformation with that 17 year old kid, who knows if any of what you wrote above is actually true. As I said, even if "race is very much relevant" as you state above, why does this have to be in every headline? Just state that three guys were found guilty, and that's the end of the story.

I'm sure that the media was hoping for rioting.

Scenario one. Three whites found not guilty. Blacks everywhere burn, loot and murder.

Scenario two. Three whites found guilty. Whites everywhere burn, loot, and murder.

Hey, why wasn't there any burning, looting, and murdering by the whites? :200:

Because whites aren't systematically discriminated against?
