"The courthouse steps in prayer Local clergy laid hands on his shoulders I just felt led to pray at that time Because it's a crucial moment in our culture I think the nation's history Artiste drove up from Jacksonville Florida for the day He says he was moved by Arbery's family's strength Really the most important part to me was to see some of the relief on the face of the family the grieving family I think that gets missed It's not just a trial about race or culture or ideology It's a family that lost someone Standing with Arbery's parents Juan de Cooper Jones and Marcus Arbery on the courthouse steps the reverend Al sharpton noted that for them this will be a somber day of thanks There will be an empty chair at Wanda's table Yes Ahmed would not be at Thanksgiving but she can look at that chair And say to Ahmed I fought a good fight Yeah And I got you some Justin The journey is not over Arbery's killers will go on trial early next year for federal hate crimes Debbie Elliott NPR news Brunswick Georgia John Perry joins us next He's a senior pastor of Mount Sinai missionary baptist church in Brunswick Georgia and he joined the Arbery family during the trial Welcome to the program sir Thank you Good morning to you and Happy Thanksgiving Happy Thanksgiving to you sir Debbie Elliott's report included a description there of a T-shirt that said justice served Was it Yes it was It was a breathtaking moment as a community leader one of the things that we did was really encourage our community Let's go through this process the right way And so when the verdict was given it was literally breathtaking A lot of weight lifted off of my shoulders as a leader encouraging people to maintain peace in such a hostile event that took place here at what our community When you say hostile event do you mean the attack itself the murder itself or the way the wider community responded to those who want a justice Well the attack primarily It was a gross act of balance that we're not really accustomed to hear as a community And then the absence of an arresting immediately caused people within the community to be outraged and so initially it took some doing to get everyone calm and get everyone on that same page of pursuing justice the right way Let's remind people about that This was a killing that was little noticed at the time and there were not initially charges and then after a little while a video was leaked that gave people some idea of what really had happened there and then authorities stepped in and then charges were filed and then a trial proceeded When you look back on all of that would you say the system worked Well the mod object killing revealed to us that we had a lot of work to do with our local system It was impossible to project that Michaels would do such a heinous act And you can never predict when the individual is going to assault another individual But if that does happen you're depending on your local justice system to step in And to make it right in our case there was no arrest made literally we waited over 70 days for there to be an arrest made and that arrest that was made It had to happen from state officials because our local officials at the time were not willing to do the job that taxpayers put them in place to do I have local officials acknowledged that maybe they should have approached this case differently Well we've had different individuals from within different divisions to make statements of regret or sympathy but holistically We never got a statement from our county commissioners who oversee the county police department Now the citizens did rally together to make significant changes as a result of the things that happened in the Ahmad arbor case We have a new chief of police now Two of the county commissioners that served at that time were obsessed And so we're seeing some positive changes as a result of this because the community has been awakened and recognized that they have to be a part of the process We just got about a minute left but I want to end with ahmaud Arbery himself I gather you've known his family for years I'm told that your son played basketball with him once upon a time He was killed at the age of 25 In a couple of sentences for those who didn't know him what was he like What my son played football with Ahmad Aubrey and one of the statements that he told me initially when he found out he said dad what are you all are going to do about this Because he was a good young man He encouraged everyone around him and always with someone that would put a smile on the face of others Had a wonderful sense of humor And so the idea that they would paint the narrative of this younger man's life by saying that he was committing a burglary was outright unthinkable Pastor John Perry a Brunswick Georgia it's a pleasure talking with you on this Thanksgiving morning Thanks for spending some time with us Thank you for.

"So The Guardian devastating, Ahmad arbor's family weighs in an almost entirely white jury. Mother Jones, judge okay's racist jury selection in trial over Ahmad Arbery's killing. New York Times nearly all white jury in arbury killing draw scrutiny. Now the facts and circumstances around the Ahmad Arbery indictment an issue, I am not caught up on. And I will get into it. At a later date. And also, we have a lot of questions around Kyle rittenhouse. We did cover that just so everyone's clear. We get these emails. Charlie, why aren't you talking about this? Just listen to every episode before you ask, why are we aren't talking about it? We did a whole thing on Kyle rittenhouse with Jack for sober, we were one of the few shows to actually talk about Kyle rittenhouse and new evidence shows that he was acting in self defense. And not anywhere near what the indictment shows. But anyway, that's a separate issue. But here's a really this is such an important and I think a very informative window into the nation we're living in right now. So you have The Guardian The New York Times I could go on. Mother Jones, Huffington Post, say that this is racist because of white jurors. Basically saying automatically that white jurors are going to judge in a way against a marred arbury and in favor of the white police, simply because of their skin color. Here's a massive difference between where conservatives are today, and where the tribalists are today. Massive difference. If you said, hey Charlie, we have a Supreme Court to assemble. You have two choices, okay? You could have 9, liberal, white men, on the United States Supreme Court, or you could have 9 lesbian, black women on the U.S. Supreme Court, which would you choose? It wouldn't be a question. I would choose the ones that are conservative..

And <Speech_Male> that won't be admissible <Speech_Male> at trial <Speech_Male> if roddy. Brian has sitting <Speech_Male> at the counsel table <Speech_Male> with them. Because <Speech_Male> he's unlikely <Speech_Male> to take the stand <Speech_Male> and so <Speech_Male> if the mcmichael's <Speech_Male> defense lawyers <Speech_Male> can't cross examine <Speech_Male> him on <Speech_Male> that statement <Speech_Male> then it won't <SpeakerChange> be admissible <Speech_Male> at trial <Speech_Male> page. <Speech_Male> Would it be <Speech_Male> possibly <Speech_Male> to the <Speech_Male> best defense <Speech_Male> for. <Speech_Male> Roddy brian <Speech_Male> to try to make a deal <Speech_Male> before <SpeakerChange> this goes <Speech_Male> to trial. <Speech_Male> I think you have to <Speech_Male> consider that. <Speech_Male> I mean anytime. <Speech_Male> You have a murder charge <Speech_Male> pending against <Speech_Male> you.

"Is being able to admit he won't call it evidence or information about a aubrey's pass and it was ruled that that cannot play a role in this trial. What was the defense hoping to be able to garner with that. If it would have been allowed well. I think a couple of things rose i think number one. They wanted to let the jury had the impression that may be ahmad. Armory was not just innocently out for a jog that day that he was a perhaps going to get into some trouble. He was trying to break into this house under construction. The idea is to suggest to the jury. He's not squeaky clean. And you shouldn't treat him as somebody who's completely innocent in any of this. The second issue of course and even more importantly is to suggest that there was a legitimate reason for the mcmichael's to pursue him a aubrey and to try to detain him. That day i mean that's going to be the entire defense. I've heard their lawyers speaking the media. I know their lawyers well. And they're going to rely on the defense of citizens arrest in this case and for them to do that. They have to be able to suggest to the jury. There was a need for an arrest and so his past from the defense side is relevant to show that he could have been engaged in criminal activity at that time. Hank what do you want to follow up with. What pay just talked about unless something happens in the court in which the judge himself says you know he knows the statute and the the the statute says that the people who are imposing the citizens arrest have to actually witness the the felonious activity and that there's been no suggestion that the mcmichael's or roddy. Brian saw anything that went on inside the house. And unless he throws it out. That'll become an argument for the lawyers during during the trial rose. I'd like to go back on one thing for my having to do with the fact that the defense cannot now bring in ahmad arbor's pass record. Not only does it take out a huge you know the the fangs from their defense. I think but it. It shifts their responsibility. Now to elevate the people who are on trial and to overcome what we know will be. The prosecution claim that they act with racist intent and they we know from the preliminary hearing. They have several examples. Particularly of travis mcmichael and roddy brian using racist terminology semi racist text messages or instagram postings and things such as that but we also know from the motions that they filed at the bond hearing that is they being the defense attorneys that they have a case they want to make. These guys are not racist and they have commendations from people that which they tried to save the life of a black man or they have One of travis mcmichael's coastguard roommates Who is african american saying. He is a fine person. he's a good guy. I've never seen that kind of behavior or heard that kind of language from him. So that's gonna be a point of contention. I think at trial particularly now that they cannot elevate the the ahmad arbor's past and i say they can't they will be able to and page knows is better than i should the prosecution slip up and some way and open the door to that. Correct me if i'm wrong. Gentlemen there are reports. That one of the mcmichael's used the inward either directly after the shooting or as aubrey was or was is that hearsay. No that's it was roddy. Brian apparently said that however That that he heard. Travis mcmichael say it as a moderate is lying on the ground and frankly he could've even still been alive and and he uses the n..

"Twenty twenty two is that correct. Yes and they're all kinds of issues right now. That could even throw that clock off england. County cova is running rampant. The hospitals are jam packed. Right now there's been some discussion although not any formal decision move. The trial day So while those dates have been said and judge walmsley wants to keep them. There's a possibility it could be continued all right now page. Let's set for our audience. The charges let's begin with the mcmichael's what are their charges. Well in state court. They are all three facing murder charges. Malice murder felony murder and then the underlying felony offenses of aggravated assault and false imprisonment For their attempt to restrain detain and eventually kill ahmad arbor. And we should note. Page the mcmichael's and brian. They have remained detained throughout this whole time. Correct yes they have. It is not at all uncommon to remain in jail pending trial. If you're charged with murder in georgia. I thought there was a possibility that they could be released. A given their lack of any criminal history The circumstances of this case being a little bit different than More the traditional murder cases we see in the courthouse in glenn county but the judge denied bond for all of them so yes. They're detained and page. There's been another major development here as relates to an indictment amil. Let you pick it up from here. Sure the former district attorney and brunswick. Jackie johnson was indicted in glenn county by the attorney general's office on basically to charges. One is a felony offense for violating her oath of office. And basically the attorney general is saying by showing favoritism to the mcmichael's by denying fairness to the armory family. She violated her public oath of office when she became a district attorney. She swore treat people fairly and would due process and the attorney general says she didn't. The second charge against her is a misdemeanor. But i actually think it's the stronger charge and that's obstruction of the officers. What happened according to what we've heard reported and what some of the witnesses have said is that when the officers appeared on the scene to talk to the mcmichael's about what had happened. They reached out to the district attorney's office and jackie johnson. Either personally or through. Her deputies informed the officers not to arrest the mcmichael's or specifically greg mcmichael And the attorney general is saying by doing that. She obstructed those officers in the lawful discharge of their duties. They don't work for jackie. John's they worked for the glenn. County police department so when she stepped in asserted herself and told them what not to do. That could be a car and page. What do we know about jackie. Johnson's response well. I know she's denied the charges. And something you guys may not know..

"But at the end of the day wasn't really trespassing. Was there a sign. Did he take something. Is it criminal trespass. Was there wire copper taken which some you know bad guys sometimes do at places and then they sell it but he had nothing in his hands he had potential to be there out of interest. And did anyone ever tell him not to be there. Was he in fact. Trespassing and at the end of the day does it. Even matter i mean is that a reason to chase someone and then you know they die. I think that's the point is going to get to a lot of folks that you know he. He shouldn't be. This shouldn't have happened. So who instigates the whole thing. And i think that's going to be a big challenge for the defense because they're the ones instigating the confrontation if you're gonna ledge self defense. It's a tough argument if you are instigating the initial confrontation. So we'll see how that goes. But here's here's what they're gonna say. Because kevin gov continued in his argument and the reason he's he's saying listen he could be committing carjacking. Is that the defense needs to come up. With the reason why they are confronting ahmad armory. And it's because of georgia's citizen arrest law. Let's take a listen. This is this. Is this a a love. Not the testimony defend is going to justify carjacking or charge router that is already in the immediate presence of gregory traps michael authorizing the data to seasons arrest. Both fries or attempted. And that's interesting. He's trying to get away from the ahmad arbor walking through that home. That's under construction. Because none of the three men who were chasing him witnessed him do that. So he's trying to make the leap that well roddy. Brian wissant witnessed him trying to enter his car. His palm print is on the on the door of the car. He's trying to enter the car and a reasonable jury could say hey. He's trying to carjack. Brian looking for an end around here. They also have to explain why his prints and are on on the trucks right because prosecution is saying that they rammed him with the truck which added to amman sphere. In all of this it would anybody. But i think that that's how they're going to explain away. That's why his prints are on there because he was actually trying to take our truck. He was trying to take our gun. We don't you know maybe that's what the defense is going to be here and we get back again to the words of the the defendants themselves because in their minds and this is the part that's going to be. I don't know how they handle it. Trial in their minds. They are doing nothing wrong. Even at the point that amman. Aubrey is dead in the street. And police are talking to the mic. Michaels into roddy brian. There's no acknowledgement that this went south. It was like well we had to do it. We had no other choice. You know we're we're you know in our minds we're allowed to make the citizens arrest this guy's going around. He's burglarizing our neighborhood. And for travis mcmichael the son. He left his vehicle unlocked and when he left vehicle unlocked. Someone took the gun out of his car so he knew that he was the victim of that right and then someone was walking into this construction site and then he put tuned to together and said well if someone went into my car sold the gun. It had to be the guy who was walking through the construction site so my understanding in the way i interpret. His actions is that in his mind. It's the same person. It's the same person who keeps coming back to the neighborhood walking through the construction say. That's the one who took my gun. I'm going to go get him. we need to. We need to get him. And i think that that is why. This case is so polarizing for a lot of people. And i think that that point that you're making is actually going to be used for the prosecution as well because they're gonna say he's being profiled and they were going after him because they were profiling him so. I think that that is something. That's going to be made into a point. And they still have yet to define in terms of carjacking versus hijacking and burglary versus criminal trespass. Getting that but that is yet to be defined terms as we head into trial and how people potential jurors will interpret those those terms and i think where the defense is going to go with. All this is just trying to narrow the scope of what happened that day. But let's take a listen to the da because the da after all these allegations of carjacking and everything else was livid. Take a listen allowing crystal clear. The defendant mr. Brian hit mr arbor with his truck. That's his palm prints on it. That's why his tee-shirt fibers on it because he assaulted him with a five thousand pound lethal weapon known as a pickup truck and yes maybe disturbing did try and push off that truck. After being hit with it i get the defense wants to characterize that some other way as if mr artery was committing a crime after being assaulted a five thousand pound pickup track a lethal weapon that could have killed as mr bryant pushed him off the road and into a ditch which he by the way demonstrate it to agent seacrest in his march thirteen twenty twenty video. It's offensive that this has been turned into. The victim was trying to commit a carjacking. State is not going to argue that. He's entitled committed carjacking. Because mr was not committing carjacking he was not committing any felony mr abrahams trying to save his life from that man who is trying to hit him with a pickup truck. There's no acknowledgement here from the defense or from any the defendants at any point as to what ahmad rb may have been thinking all this time. You're let's say he's he's literally going for a run. Okay and i again. The facts will come out in trial and we'll figure it out the jury tell us but if he's going for a run and you're running through neighborhood and there's one pickup following you then there's a second one trying to follow you then stops in the middle of the road. There's a guy on the back of the pickup truck and then they've got guns. I mean what is going through your mind other than for some reason. These men are hunting me down. And that's the point that i don't think they ever could. They can't put themselves into into the mindset of ahmad armory and how he's interpreting. What's happening here. I think about that all time. Especially when i look at the video but then i also go back to the fundamentals here because if you say you did something wrong in. Somebody's house or say you did. Try to carjack somebody. Is that a reason for that person to die and is that a reason that a killer should be acquitted of of a crime because you have situations where serial killers go after prostitutes. They're committing a crime but if the ciller serial killer commit committed a crime against someone that was committed a crime. Does that mean. They shouldn't pay the price for the notion of of the the vigilantism of it all is taking the law into your own hands and then it comes back to the citizens arrest. Is it a lawful citizens arrest. Is it an unlawful citizen's arrest. Is it self at the end or are they committing felony murder. This this one can make many different turns. The legal arguments will be fascinating and the way the facts develop as well but when we come back i want what i want to do is take a closer look at one of the three defendants. And that is roddy brian. Because he's the one of the three that does not have a gun. He's the one who's recording the whole thing and during the course on my show on court. Tv i.
