Joe Biden Signs Anti-Lynching Bill in 'Historic First'

"I must say I was kind of intrigued and also bemused to see a Biden on the news. And the guy was, you know, drawing himself up to full height and he says that he is signing on his desk. The first anti lynching law in American history. And according to Biden, no federal law, no federal law, he repeats, expressly prohibited lynching until today. So, let it go on the record, then Biden is against lynching now. Are there lynchings going on in America today? No. Was there anyone that you can remember in the last 5 years? No. In the last 30 years? No. Yeah, sure. You can think of hate crimes, the ahmaud Arbery case more recently. And of course, going back 20 or 30 years, we can find a till and there are other examples, of course. But lynching hasn't really occurred in the classic sense in America in 40 years. So it's not exactly an ongoing social problem. And to some degree, coming out today now and saying, listen, we're going to be banning lynching all across the country in all 50 states. This is kind of like saying, you know, we're going to be banning cannibalism, or we're going to come out four square against witch burning. I mean, yeah, and when goes into the landscape of history, you can ferret out the Salem witch trials and you can find that with some mansion cannibalism, perhaps. But none of these are pressing social problems. So this appears to be a certain kind of absurd virtue signaling. At least that was my initial reaction until I began to look a little bit more at the law itself. And what's interesting is that the law is not about lynching. It recognizes the absurdity of outlying something that isn't even happening. So what is the law doing? Well, the law and this is a very kind of democratic move is in the name of fighting lynching is actually fortifying penalties for so called hate

"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Leila fauld And I'm Rachel Martin there's a federal hate crimes trial underway in Georgia related to the murder of ahmaud Arbery The central question is whether the three white men who killed Arbery were motivated by racism Benjamin paine from Georgia public broadcasting joins us from Brunswick Georgia where the trial is taking place Thanks so much for being here Thanks Rachel So Benjamin let's just start with what arguments the prosecutors plan to make Sure prosecutors say that three defendants Travis mcmichael Greg mcmichael and William roddy Bryan held deeply racist worldviews especially against African Americans and that because of their views they wrongly suspected that Arbery had committed a crime when he was running through their neighborhood In terms of proof prosecutors say they plan to introduce social media posts from the man as well as sworn testimony from people who knew them and interacted with them For example prosecutor Bobby Bernstein said during opening statements yesterday that they plan to call up a person who they say brought up the NAACP in a conversation with Greg mcmichael at which point the witness says mcmichael went off on a racist tirade Bernstein also said that his son Travis mcmichael told some on the reason he enjoyed his job as a defense contractor so much was that there were zero African Americans who worked there but that he didn't say African Americans who used the N word What about the attorneys for the defendants What do they plan to argue here Basically their argument is this the Michaels had a legitimate reason to chase Arbery when they saw him in the neighborhood because they recognized him from surveillance video inside a house that was under construction As for roddy Bryan who tagged along his attorney said in opening statements yesterday his client was just trying to document the incident on video even though that also meant joining in on the chase Now what's interesting here is that none of the defense attorneys denied that the men have expressed racist fuse For example Greg mcmichael's attorney told the jury that his client quote said the types of things that would make people cringe and feel disgusted The defense just argues these racist expressions were not motivating factors So I mean all this must be incredibly difficult for ahmaud Arbery's family to go through they've already been through the criminal trial and now they're coming up in the two year anniversary of ahmaud Arbery's murder Yeah ahmaud Arbery's mother Wanda Cooper Jones said yesterday outside the federal courthouse that she's ready I think it's gonna be a long long haunt round a whole lot of hard evidence is gonna come into play So I gotta be prepared for that But I'm grateful that we're here that we made it this far and I think we're gonna give Victor as well Arbery's father Marcus Arbery also said he was looking forward to a second victory The state murder trial was televised right many Americans saw the guilty verdicts being read on television but I understand there will not be cameras in the courtroom this time Is that right That's correct This is a federal courtroom with rules that prevent that I spoke with Samantha guilder She's with community activist group that was formed after Arbery's murder and she's frustrated this trial isn't more open to the public I think without that level of visibility that there was with the state trial Once you remove that the only thing you're left with is you have to be able to trust the process And so trusting the process and lately is a determined upon having a diverse jury that can hear this trial And the jury in this case is more diverse than the first trial That one had only one black juror to 11 white jurors This federal trial has three black jurors one Hispanic juror and 8 white jurors But it's interesting what you pointed out earlier There is a high bar to clear here right Even though the defendants are known to have uttered racist phrases they have to draw connection to the murder of Arbery Correct That's basically they killed Arbery because he was black That's a much higher legal hurdle to clear than in the state murder trial since it now involves motive Benjamin Payne from Georgia public broadcasting we appreciate your reporting on this thank you Thank you Rachel Families in Colorado are still looking to rebuild their lives after the Marshall fire incinerated parts of boulder county at the end of December Over 500 homes in the city of Louisville were destroyed Those looking to rebuild

"And I agree with counsel that it is dangerous for defendants who have multiple prosecutions against them to make statements of remorse But remorse isn't something that is simply a statement of regret Remorse I think can be determined by looking at somebody's reaction to difficult circumstances and the reality of the situation that they're in Again it doesn't require an apology and quite honestly sometimes apologies are made simply to get past problems remorse is something that's felt and demonstrated In this case getting back to the video again after ahmaud Arbery fell the mcmichaels turned their backs To get a disturbing image and they walked away This was a killing It was callous And it occurred as far as the court is concerned based upon the evidence because confrontation was being sought I think the statement was made during closing arguments It's interesting to note that the most violent crime institute of shores was the murder of ahmaud Arbery So sensing does not generally provide closure I think this one to Cooper Jones also talked about closure But I don't find that it really does And I think that's an unfortunate thing Because in this case I think many people are seeking closure The mother the father the community And maybe even parts of the nation The closure is hard to define and is a granular concept It's seen differently by all depending on their perspective and the prism of your lives Instead of closure maybe we'd best see today's proceeding as an exercise and accountability We are all accountable for our own actions Sometimes in today's day and age that statement is lost upon many And today the defendants are being held accountable for their actions here in superior court Today demonstrates that everybody is accountable to the rule of law Taking the law into your own hands is a dangerous endeavor Unless.

Jussie Smollett Found Guilty of Staging Fake Hate Crime

"The jury in Chicago has just rendered a verdict of guilty on all but one of the 6 counts against Jussie Smollett. This was a jury I read that's composed of 11 white and one portion of color, ironically the same jury composition of the Kyle rittenhouse jury, and of the jury of the three men. Who were on trial for killing. Amen Arbery. All three jurors apparently had one person of color. 11. Whites. Those two juries were deemed to be problematic by many people on the left. If you watch CNN and MSNBC, which I watched, you don't have to. But nobody said squad about the composition of this jury. Poor qua. Everybody knew that small it was lying.

"Right now, if I was an attorney who was getting ready to file suits for him for defamation of his character, starting at the top, I think it's about as close as you've ever seen as a president of the United States being able to be sued in civilly for his discussions about rittenhouse. And frankly, even Jen Psaki for that matter in her just sort of callous comments that she had just a few weeks ago when asked about the president's former comments and she said he's not going to comment on a ongoing case and then she said, but I will say that the president discourages vigilantism with armed individuals at parades. I mean, Jan, if you think you can get away with that fine, but that's gonna be the next thing. So put them out there, it's gonna be interesting to see what happens is rittenhouse accuses and goes after folks like joy Reid at MSNBC and many of these other CNN. It's funny if you've noticed recently CNN seemed to change the team pretty quickly after he was acquitted on some of their issues, but that's gonna be one for you to look at. Number two in the lightning round, again, the continued just complete ineptness of the Biden administration when it comes to dealing with this economy. Right now we have a supply chain shortage, we can't get things to where we need to go. These folks are out of sales. You can't get things delivered. And the only seemingly thing that the Biden administration understands is vaccine and vaccine mandates. We're getting ready to have a problem in our military. We've talked about it on the podcast. We got three to 4% of the United States military that is on the verge of being kicked out of the military and this is all ranks all areas who have not taken the vaccine. Many of which have had COVID have natural immunity, but that's not even being considered. You either get the shot or you're out. Three to 4% right now across the board in our military ranks getting ready to be gone. We had Mike Barry on a while back in the podcast, an attorney with first liberty who is representing 40 sales. That case is moving forward, but think about it losing 40 sales out of the Salesforce over this vaccine mandate, which I don't think has been thought out. Look, it's not a question do you want Amanda? Won't a vaccine get a vaccine? I've been vaccinated and I've told people that. But it's not going to work if you mandate this and you don't use any logic or common sense in denying it. So look, they've already attacked our military. They're attacking the supply chain now. The latest in not understanding our economy comes with Biden's decision to acquire truck drivers crossing into the U.S. to be vaccinated. In other words, can you imagine any other way to help stall the economy any more than shutting down further the transportation system comparing our supply needs? Now, I want you to understand this. If you're moving commercial traffic over our border, which will be Mexico in Canada, you gotta be fully vaccinated. This is what the decision from the administration is, but yet we've had over 2 million illegal immigrants, walk across the border, and they're not even checking them anytime. And they're sending them all throughout the United States. So Joe Biden, get off the economy, quit killing the economy over this issue of vaccine mandates and especially when you go after truck drivers who are simply, we don't have enough of them. They don't have enough people to actually drive the trucks now and instead of enforcing your vaccine mandate on people and killing industry and instead of finding reasonable workable alternatives, how about just looking at the 2 million folks you've just let walk across our southern border and into our communities and you haven't even lifted a finger on vaccinating them. I'm sick of it. And this is just killing the economy as we go further and further. So if you want to understand the lack of understanding at The White House, you know, almost have a thought here. You know one of the things we ought to do for Christmas. Everybody out there just start sending, go to the local college books, or find a book on economics one O one and send it to Jen Psaki into the present. Just send them books on economics because undoubtedly they flat just don't understand it as we go forward. The last one that I want to just touch on real briefly here in the lightning round is that the media and others on their idea that if they just name something something else it'll go away. A story out of the argument that the media experts tell police not to call looters looters. The argument fell apart the story goes when a university of New Haven professor explained the problem this way. Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color are urban dwellers who are doing something. We tend not to use that term for other people when they do the exact same thing. Folks, learning is leading I don't care if you're white, Brown, black, purple, green from another planet. If you're out running around breaking into stores, looting, taking stuff that's not yours. I don't care what you're from or where you're from. It's looting. It's time that we just acknowledge things for what they are. And that is the unfortunate part of the left. They think naming something differently will actually make it better. Don't think it's going to work now. Not gonna work then. Call it for what it is, looting is looting. I don't care who you are. All right. It is time for one of my favorite segments. I'm done.

"As we continue on today, one of the things that is amazing right now is you're seeing the Democrats, even after passing, if you listen to all year, you heard that they were if they could just pass this massive infrastructure Bill, which by the way, I only had about 15 to 20% of which actually dealt with infrastructure names. I actually dealt with rose bridges into things that we normally get into. When you're dealing with that, you know, it became more of a social aspect of engineering the economy toward electric vehicle solar wind and other things. Spending over a $1 trillion doing that, they said, once we get that done, look, people will be happy with. Once we get that done, we're good. Then they said, okay, now that we've got that done and the president signed it, then we're gonna get into the reconciliation package. And again, gonna continue down this path of social engineering, just putting money at a situation. And the reality is, is some people have just said that they're tone deaf about this and I don't think it's tone deaf and I think it's just complete deafness. When you just tone deafness is hearing something, but not in understanding, but not understanding it to make a proper response whereas just not hearing at all and continuing on is what I think there is happening with them. But you know when it comes to Joe Biden and vice president Kamala Harris, I mean, these are two that just gaffes are a way of life for them. And if you go back in time, Joe Biden's career, I mean, this has been something that has been over and over in his career. But I mean, what is beginning to be very concerning to many right now. And this is the concerning the reason I'm bringing it up and I'm not upset about this. In fact, I think modes very well for Republicans in the next election cycle next November is that people are losing confidence in Joe Biden. They never had it in vice president Harris. Her numbers are tanking. I've talked about this before. When you have a poll just recently, so the 21% of the people approved of Kamala Harris, 51% disapprove, my only question was is you have a vice president has become so irrelevant that 30% of the population didn't even have basically did not even have an opinion about her. Now that's pretty amazing to me coming off of all the politics that we've had in the last year and a half in this country. And people frankly had no good or bad word to say about vice president Harris. Now you can not be in that position and think that that's good. In fact, what's happening right now is a lot of folks in the Biden side of The White House are saying that vice president Harris is a drag on this White House because she doesn't come off well. She seems disjointed disconnected. She can't answer questions well. She's supposed to be the borders are, but yet has done nothing about the border that he's had, you know, close to me and people cross it this year. You know, she goes to France, it starts speaking in a French accent that is not even good. I mean, she just embarrassing right now. But then not to be outdone, Joe Biden gets up and press conferences as well, here's my latest. I know who they've told me, I get to ask questions from. He reads through the teleprompter on quotes and says, end quote. He gets to just the other, I don't know if you saw this. It was about a month ago. There's an event at The White House. Joe Biden is with the First Lady, other staffers. There's a lot of music. There's a lot of things going on, a lot of activity. They're leading the president up to the platform into the stage where he'll be speaking in the podium where he would be delivering his remarks. Everybody is still doing other things and Joe Biden walks up to the podium and begins to talk. And you can see the video that the doctor did Joe Biden, his wife, the First Lady has to actually touch him and say, and basically say, look at me, Joe, it's not time for you to talk. It's almost like he didn't know why he was there. We see that in just more and more of these gaffes and being told, they tell me what to say, and they do this. This is becoming more and more concerned. I'm bringing this up because the Biden Harris gaff machine is just adding fuel to a terrible economy that right now for most people, even if the stock market is up and from productions up, people are leaving the workplace. People in small business can't find workers, you have inflation headed toward double digits, you have it, things costing more and when the gas prices go up a dollar 50 when you have gas processing, California, over $5, people notice those things. When food processes go up and gas processes go up, people notice it and they blame whoever's in The White House. Joe Biden has no clue to how to deal with inflation. You have a press sector, Jen Psaki, who gets up there, and basically makes fun of him the inflation. Basically, he's not worried about it. You have a supply chain issue in which she says, oh, somebody didn't get their bicycle. I mean, instead of these small businesses that can't get product that they've been trying to get into their shells to sail, again, this very condescending attitude. And when you throw on top of that, the gas and the disconnect that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have with the American people, it spells basically poll disaster for the Democrats and I think that is what they are seeing right now and it scares them to death. But hang on, long time Republicans don't use this and I'm encouraged to conservative the worst thing you could possibly do right now. Is say we're gonna win simply because Joe Biden is so bad. If you go out there and say that we're gonna win simply because Joe Biden is so bad, then we are in deep trouble. So these are the, I'm just putting in perspective, we got a long way off. We're gonna talk about a lot about the election. I wanna get that out there now, but this number's polling is not a fluke. And when you look at the disconnectedness and the concern of Joe Biden and why many people are talking right now about him not running again for a second term, you have president Trump out there whose numbers among Republicans is still out of the roof basically. This is going to set itself up for an interesting next November, which in which it looks like the Republicans are going to be able to take back over the house and take back over the Senate. So watch that as we go forward. And you look at the gaff prone Biden Harris administration and then you look at the reality of the economy and the crime and the issues we've talked about today, it's no wonder their numbers are in the tank. Let's do a new section that we call it. We're just going to call it lightning round. We're going to talk about a few things that are going on right now. And just do it in quick format. I'm going to hit it for a couple of minutes. Just some things that we're not able to get into the long form of the podcast. I want to just get it out there though. One comes from our first story today where we were talking about the tale of two trials, and that is Kyle rittenhouse..

"Just gonna jump right into it today. And you know, on the show, we go through a lot of different things, but today I want to take a little bit of time and I want to go in depth on some issues that we've been looking at. In fact, I'm on some layout. We're gonna start off with what I call a tail of two trials. And really this week for those who have watched the judicial system who are part of the judicial system, you know, like myself, I'm an attorney, I've been a defense attorney, I've prosecuted. I've been on Florida both sides. This has been one of those weeks in which just looking back over it from the rittenhouse verdict to the Aubrey case here in Georgia. It gives us an opportunity to dive into some issues with legality if you would, some legal issues, but also talks about Hawaii I still believe that this country has the best judicial system we can. And if it's not blind if justice is not actually have the blindfold in his blind, then we're indefinite trouble. We're gonna start off with that. We will also deal with crime in America today. We can't get away from this. Some shocking statistics that have come out just in the last few days about the number of murders a number in some of our bigger cities and also these issues of the looting and vandalism things that we're seeing in California. We're seeing just a continued rise. We're going to go in depth with that today. We're also then going to deal with Biden Harris. I never thought that there could probably be a more gaff prone president than Joe Biden. I mean, he's done all his career. He's done it all his, you know, basically his life. And there's just normal. But Harris is running a close second. We're going to talk about that because right now, I've talked to some of my democratic friends and they are, you know, we've talked about here on the show about the issue they're willing to give up position in power for some things, but some of them are not willingly give it up like they feel like they're doing under this administration. They will probably get into a lightning round doing some issues just again economics and topics I want to do. And today we are back. It is another I'm done with you segment. So let's just Ian. Tale of two trials. This week, it really is something amazing that you have to so high profile cases that went to the verdicts went to the jury's juries and my opinion got it right in both counts. Now, if you were to listen to the left, you will think that the written house verdict was rigged, it was bad, it was wrong. Why? Because they had a preconceived notion going in, starting all the way at the top with president Joe Biden on this idea that Kyle rittenhouse was a racist. He was a white supremacist. He was the part of the problem. You know, I carried he cared a gun to find people at a peaceful protest in rally. Folks, let me just, we're going to get into the case here in a minute and I'm going to download some of the facts here. We're not going to overburden you. I want to keep it to a level where as you're going through this Thanksgiving weekend and I hope everybody's had a great Thanksgiving time and as you go into the holidays when you're going to see a lot more friends and family, when you can honestly talk about these cases, I want you to see the why. I want you to understand these are the things that are going on behind the scenes in these cases. Hopefully to educate and understand. Now, one, the left has no desire to educate. The last time no desire, they had a predetermined outcome on Kyle rittenhouse. In fact, right now, the only thing that I see the left doing is adding more defamation cases to when Kyle and his attorneys decide who to go after. I mean, when you, after the verdict, steal, have people going, you know, after him and making false statements about the trial, false statements about him. That is a concern, and it also shows that the left only seems to like justice when it ends up in what they believe justice is. A la trial number two that we're gonna talk about. The amount arbor case down in South Georgia on the coast and rosal gear. This was the case in which I'm on Arby was shot and killed by the man who chased him as he came out of jogging down the street. We'll get into a little bit more of that, but the thing that I want to say that ties these together. And I frankly not heard this in a lot of commentating so commentary owned these cases. So I want to start tying them together a little bit. And the reason I want to tie them together is you begin to see our Jewish prudence at work. You began to see how cases come together, how trials come together and how at the end of the day as much as we like to watch Law & Order as much as we like to watch all of the crime shows. These cases are not solved in 45 minutes. These cases are not tried in 45 minutes to an hour on TV. They're tried in a real courtroom with rural people with real concerns with real needs. And you also have the element of human the human element in there. You have prosecutors, some who do their job well, some who don't do their job well, we saw that also in this these trials is we went along and in my opinion, you saw, I think what you saw in the bigger case here was you had a prosecution in Georgia and the monarchies who understood what they were up against and they laid out a very detailed account of what happened. They laid out a very detailed account of why they believed that the arbor case should go the way it does in these gentlemen should have been found all three by the way found guilty of murder. As we go forward, this is something that needs to be looked at when you look at a case and how it's prosecuted. I'll talk a little bit more about prosecution and in some issues we have a crime right now in America. But this is these two cases give a class example. The other issue is the prosecution the written House case. I believe think that they thought they had it one going in. I thought about it a lot and I wondered, why would you have so many issues in the presentation of your case? Why would you have had so many problems at saving a lot from people watching the case to not think that you just could come in? Owls I phone it in, but you come in and you put on a case that really should have frankly in my opinion been stopped midway through when you had one of the when you had one of the victims in the case get up on the stand and say that Kyle rittenhouse did not shoot at them until he actually pulled a gun on car. There's no other way to define that except self defense. And the prosecution was the one who led this witness to that testimony. So again, a lot of going on with the trial and you can get into the details you can get in the specifics. What I want to focus on is something that I believe has been missing in this discussion. And the discussion is this. In these two trials, it center stage was a age old timeless almost doctrine of self defense. In other words, the affirmative defense of self defense. My affirmative defense, what I mean is that you're saying, I am not culpable or guilty of the actions that I did to the other person why because I felt my life was in danger and I had acted in accordance with that fear of my life being in danger. That's the simplest way I know how to put it. And that is this doctrine that has been around for hundreds of years. If you were to listen unfortunately to the left in the last little bit, you would have thought that this doctor was a made up doctrine that just come from nowhere and that the minute that Kyle rittenhouse showed up with his rifle that he should have been found guilty. And the reality is, is it self defense and Kyle's case was that he was involved with these individuals who attacked him, one with a skateboard was beaten if you saw pictures of Kyle. He was injured in a scene as was going on that night in that area with the looting and the riding and the police had been pulled back. Everything that was going on there, the incident occurred. And rittenhouse feeling for feeling his life was in jeopardy. Fired, killing two and injuring another one. Again, that was his defense. He said, I was fearful of my life. I took actions to protect my life, thus the defense of self defense. All right, in the discussion that I want to have it as we continue this discussion. You've got to understand that in the two.

"Stolen from that particular residence. So he sees a citizen called on the police he runs after he runs the citizen who caught a police, signal to the neighbors. Everybody see him running down the street. They identify him as a person whom they have interacted with before at this residence late at night. They chase him. They attempt to conduct a citizen's arrest. In the state of Georgia, citizens can conduct the citizens arrest. You don't need to prove that a person has committed a crime. You don't need to see them firsthand committed crime. All you need is reasonable, suspicion that a person has committed a crime. They say probable suspicion of reasonable suspicion that this person may have committed a crime. In order to chase them, you have to have reasonable suspicion that they committed a felony crime. In a state of Georgia burglary is a felony. Burglary only involves a person entering a occupied or unoccupied structure with the intent to take something. People don't have to prove that he was going to take anything. It's about suspicion. They had suspicion based on what the defense has argued. They chase him. You know, for I don't know how many minutes, man, they're chasing them all around the community he's running here. He's running there, no guns have been brandished, no threats have been made according to what the court documents say. They corner him at some point. He's running down the street. Mcmichael, one of the sons, a younger mcmichael, steps out his car with a gun. One thing that people criticized, they didn't have a reason to have a gun. Well, you don't lose your constitutional right to bear arms or to carry a firearm just because you conduct in a citizen's arrest. You have a right in a state of joys to open carry a firearm. And what idiot would chase a person down conducting a lawful citizen's arrest and not carry a gun with you. But if he has a gun. These are former police officers, right? Well, at least the father was a former police officer and the son was a former military, and he was he trained, he was in the military police. So these people do have tactical experience. So once they corner the biggest part of all of this, is that he's running down the street, he could have went right could have written left could have run around him. Once he rounds the truck, then, Michael son is standing in the front of the truck with a shotgun, ahmar already attacks him. And they have a fight over the shotgun. That's when multiple shots went off a few of them, you know, puncture in the body of a marbury. He dies. And because they are white, and he's black, we're even talking about this at this point, because after the initial investigation, they weren't going to charge them. Because the facts and circumstances that were presented, they were justified in using force. But after social justice warriors come out, they decide they're going to prosecute these guys and they become now white supremacists. And then he becomes a jogger. And so he's just trying to make the Olympic trials. Right. And you know they argue that the prosecution argued that he was an avid jogger and that they had seen him jogging in the area, not in this community. They've seen him jaw in the direction of this community, and that should be justification that he was just jogging an innocent man looking at somebody's property. He shouldn't have been in just because he was out on a jog. And when he left the residence, he was just jogging at a high rate of speed. That's irrational. He was running. He was pretty fast though. And so it sounds like this is a young man Ahmad Arbery, who was breaking and entering. Now, was this like a house under construction? It was a house under construction that was being a remodeled. Yeah, so what was the potential was he just there to kind of just take a look at it or what's the. You know, what's the defense or prosecution saying about that? What a prosecution say that he was just a person lingering around, just looking in the house with no Internet to do anything. Just because he was out on a machine. He was there multiple times, though. That's what they don't want to bring up, even though they're forced to bring up because there's not one cause from Larry English to homeowner. There's multiple calls. He's got on camera of him being he's on camera four times for different occasions of him being in that particular residence. And he's been confronted by people in the community on other occasions and the police officers have case reports documenting these things. So he's not just a jogger and they want to say he's a jogger, even if it's not occupied, you still don't have a right to be in somebody's dwelling. And then there were thefts from that particular place. You know, he has wood he has tools here. We don't know if that was him that took it. But they don't know. They don't know if that was actually him they took it. But there were other thefts, so they had reasonable suspicion to believe that someone's there that shouldn't be there. You could steal stuff. Right, so there were thefts from a particular boat that was there. Things that were stolen off of the boat. After the homeowner took the boat from the property, ahmaud Arbery appears there, looking at a smaller boat. So they can't prove that he stole it, but that's what for court and investigation is for. But a reasonable person would believe that he could be responsible in these thefts that have gone on in that particular residence. And so, but the prosecution is still kind of staying with their case that the mcmichaels is that their name right Michaels. That they saw this and immediately, they got on there, racist. Yes. Hunt, and they went forward. Now, there's another detail, though this chase went on for a while, didn't it? It went on for a while, you know, most people see the video, the amateur video from one of the other defendants in this case. And they're charging him too because somebody died while they were in a commission of an unlawful citizen's arrest, which is what the prosecution is arguing. But on the amateur video, you just see a minority running down the street, you see a car following him and then you see the instance. That wasn't all. I mean, they were following him, left right down the street up the street, he was hiding. He was running here, running there. They were literally virtually trying to corner him waiting on the police to respond. Police had been called before he left the residence, so they called the police, not the mcmichaels, a neighbor caught a police. The mcmichaels caught a police once they were at the bottom of the street before the shooting they caught a police say, look, we got them corner on the street and then that's when he ran down the street and got into the altercation. So there were multiple callers, the Michaels did call before there was a shooting. Did you know that if you shop at Nike, they turn around and give your hard earned dollars to pro abortion groups, like Planned Parenthood and the population council? Did you know.

"On most of the charges I should correct myself there I think I said that initially but it was most of the charges And the message is very clear that the jury completely rejected the claims of citizens arrest and self defense from Travis mcmichael his father Greg they along with their neighbor William roddy Bryan were convicted of murder aggravated assault and false imprisonment for chasing ahmaud Arbery with pickup trucks on February 23rd 2020 They cornered him and Travis mcmichael shot him at close range with the shotgun Brian recorded the confrontation on his cell phone which became a damning piece of evidence in this trial After the verdict today prosecutor Linda donakowski said the jury did its job And when you present the truth to people and they can see it They will do the right thing And that's what this jury did today And getting justice for ahmaud Arbery What was the reaction from Arbery's family They've been in the court daily for this trial Right both of his parents were very emotional as the verdict was read in the courtroom And then afterwards they came out and talked with people about what it meant to them Here's Wanda Cooper Jones I never thought this day would come But God is good Yes he is Thank you Thank you For those who marched those who prayed most of the ones who prayed Yes Laura Thank you guys Thank you And now quiz which you know him as a mind I know him as quiz He will now rest in hey man So Cooper Jones and Marcus Arbery his father had been fighting for justice for their son since the killing if you recall.

"With a use of a shotgun And then there's some felonies which essentially be the felony murder rule meaning that they committed felonies that cause death even if they didn't intend for it to happen So one is the aggravated assault with the shotgun another is aggravated assault with the pickup truck Another is making a false arrest what's called false imprisonment And then there's the fourth one attempt it false imprisonment Now if they're convicted of any of those charges it would be because it's felony murder It would be as if they had committed the crime knowing that they was committing murder So that's really the indictment charges The defense as simply is very simple Saying well look at the time we committed the crime there was a statute that allowed us to make a citizen's arrest And the second thing is yes we shot him but in self defense because he came at us right So the prosecution's case hinges on two things One is to say well yeah you can make a citizen's arrest Oh by the way they repealed that law since then because of this case But you have to have witnessed a crime being committed And that's not what happened here Here one of the three 12 days ago saw our Brie in constructed house unfinished house and didn't really see him committed any crimes By the way this is one of this mysteries we're never going to know Apparently he was always in that house He just would come in look around and leave You must love the house But neighbors saw Arbery So they're basically on secondhand knowledge or knowledge that took place 12 days before relying on the statute that's saying we are allowed to make a citizen's arrest because we saw him running around and he's the guy that purportedly has been in the house And one of us saw him in the house And as for self defense the prosecution is saying yeah but you instigated it right You're the ones that chase him He didn't have a gun You chased him with a pickup truck and then you had a shotgun and he was on arm When you listen to the closing arguments did you get a feeling that one side or the other had a better presentation Yeah the prosecution did much better Remember one of them is also claiming that well items are the one that was really driving I was just there for the ride And the argument there is in under the law they all acted in concert They are all responsible for anything they did individually Look remember this comes in the shadow of the written house acquittal and the jury.

"The trial over Ahmad Arbery's killing is set to begin. Here's what to expect. By Josiah baits. The February 2020 killing of ahmaud Arbery served as a flashpoint for their reckoning on racial injustice in America that dominated much of the public consciousness last year, Arbery, a 25 year old black man was jogging in a suburban Georgia neighborhood, when three men, father and son Gregory and Travis mcmichael, and William Bryan, pursued, shot, and killed him. The mcmichaels, and Bryan, are white. Cell phone footage of the fatal shooting allegedly recorded by William Bryan, was released three months later to the public. The graphic video led to widespread outrage and calls for an investigation into why the three men had not been previously arrested or charged. Now more than a year later still, and more than 18 months since Arbery's death, the trial of the mcmichaels and Brian is scheduled to begin on November 5th. They each face federal hate crime and state murder charges. Jury selection began on October 18th, and ran for more than two weeks, the jury is comprised of 11 white people and one black person. After a jury was initially selected on November 3rd from a pool of around 50 qualified candidates, the prosecution challenged the defense attorneys striking of 8 potential jurors, all of whom were black. Each of the three defense teams representing the mcmichaels and Brian respectively was given 8 strikes across those 24 total the defense eliminated 11 of the 12 potential black jurors. All 12 of the strikes the prosecution was afforded, were used on white people. Prosecutors argued that many of these strikes made by the defense were solely because of the would be jurors race for The Associated Press and allegation that the defense attorneys denied, and trial judge Timothy warmsley said that there appeared to be intentional discrimination in the jury selection process. Despite this, he ruled that the strikes could stand and sat the jury on November 3rd. It is a lived experience for black people in America that we can never take for granted that a white person will be convicted for killing a black person no matter how much evidence we have. Civil rights attorney Ben krump, who was representing the Arbery family, said during an October 18th press conference. After so many roadblocks, and when the trial finally moving forward, the Arbery family is hopeful that justice will be served. Here's everything you need to know about the case. What happened to ahmaud Arbery? On February 23rd, Arbery was jogging near his Brunswick Georgia home, when he was shot during an altercation with Travis and Gregory mcmichael. Gregory mcmichael later told authorities that he believed Arbery matched the description of a man who had been responsible for multiple break ins that he believed had occurred in the area..

"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..
