"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. I'm surprised it wasn't a laugh track. I would have loved for this one to have been televised. Found guilty of count one, making a fourth please report that he was a victim of a hate crime to officer Muhammad begg. Count number two, guilty, making a false police report. He was a victim of battery, to beg, count three guilty, making a false police report, he was a victim of a hate crime to detective Kimberly Murray. Count four guilty of making a false police report, he was a victim of a battery to attempt to detective kimberley Murray. Count 5 guilty of making a false police report, he was a victim of a battery to detective kimberley, Murray. He was acquitted on one count of felony disorderly conduct related to making a false police report. He was a victim of an aggravated battery detective Robert

"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.

Former Officer Brandon Tatum Describes the Driving Force Behind the War on Police

"We obviously see a war on police and it's going in different in every community. What do you think is the main driving force behind that? Because it's not even that popular in the black community to get rid of police. Well, you know, I think that it's political. A lot of people like to promote something that make you feel good to get you emotionally charged, and it has no real positive effect. There is no rational reason to defund police in any circumstance. If anything, they want to fund the police for the things that they complain about. You want to get them better training. You want to make sure they're equipped, you want to be able to hire more police officers who are qualified, who represent the community. So I think it's our political, man. I think that when black people get killed by police, there's an emotional charge, and there's an emotional financial benefit. You get people charged up, people make a lot of money that's invested in race hustle. And I think they use that to get leverage to votes and but they don't have a solid real perspective.

Brandon Tatum: 'These Police Brutality Situations Are One-Offs'

"Yeah, so since all the Floyd stuff, which you came out really strong and you deserve to be credit for that, you were super courageous on that. You know, we've seen murder rates go up dramatically across the country. It's been the fluid effect, basically. With that one incident, now we see inner cities more dangerous than ever. Even Phoenix is having an increase in crime. And this goes to show that bad ideas in this war on police is not just, it's not just something that should be refuted, but it's actually making America more dangerous. Right. And I think that's what anything. You know, these bad ideas from people who don't come from a good, you know, I would say godly place. They don't come from a good place of moral character and love for a country. They create these ideas to get votes and then they leave you at the drive. I mean, like I said, you know, when you look at George Floyd, you know, perspective of reality, that's a one off, even in that particular city. That's a one off. You can not find another case that a black man has been put in that situation similar to George Floyd. I can tell you why God, that nobody will ever cover Tony. Nobody would ever cover that. However, it's a one off. And these police brutality situations are one offs. You know, police patrol, you know, they have contact with all 300 million people a year. There's no research. There's no study that. Can suggest that their disproportionately affecting black people. And so with this one off, they completely destroyed the reputation of law enforcement in America and is making almost communities

Yeah, so I wrote a book about policing in America, you know, not many people are writing about these things, and not many police officers have the voice and a platform to be able to speak on their behalf. And so I said, you know what? I want to write this book, and this is a book that was in my heart when I was a police officer. Several years ago. And I said, you know what it's a time and place that I'm going to write the book and defend law enforcement officers to spare myths of police coming from slave patrols and, you know, what is police brutality versus not? What is going to be the real effect of defunding the police?

Ahmaud Arbery Shooters' Defense Attorney Dehumanized Arbery During Trial

"Here's Katie fag by the way cut 7. We used to we had her on a few years ago. I've had her on for a while. I think she's, I think she's pretty progressive herself, but I could be wrong, but she's a reporter a journalist. Here's what she said about the defense attorneys despicable description of ahmaud Arbery in that murder trial. Well, I think it was a critical misstep by the defense attorney, but if you're the defense attorney, you know what you're doing, you're dehumanizing the victim, right? You're making it so that the person who was the ultimate victim in this case ahmaud Arbery didn't really have a lot of value. So you're kind of suggesting to the jury, look, not only did he provoke this, but at the end of the day, it's okay. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, if you want to equip my client, because it really wasn't anything of value. It is beyond insulting to devalue and to dehumanize mister R Barry, but I'm not surprised because there has been this idea in this case that it was okay to chase down a man for 5 minutes, who was black because he was running down the street, fleeing for his life. Now, is it a racist thing to do? Maybe, I don't know. The jury's gonna have to decide that. Seems pretty despicable

"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..

in Washington In a Martinez and Culver City California One of the killings that sparked racial justice protests last year again in the national spotlight with a trial set to begin next week in Brunswick Georgia Three white men are accused of murdering ahmaud Arbery at 25 year old black man shot and killed as he was jogging down a residential street NPR's Debbie Elliott will be covering the trial Debbie welcome remind us what happened there Well it was February of 2020 in the coastal neighborhood in Glenn county Georgia ahmaud Arbery had refused to stop as the three defendants chased him down with pickup trucks Now they had suspected him of recent break ins although police had not linked him to any Arbery was unarmed but one of the men had a shotgun and confronted Arbery He fought back and was shot to death Now advocates for the defendants are going to argue it was a legal citizen's arrest on tragically arrived Now you've spent some time reporting in Brunswick recently How do people there describe what's at stake in this trial You know local activists and Arbery's family see this case as yet another test you know and the nation's struggle for racial justice In part because of how local law enforcement initially handled this case seemingly protecting the accused And even ahead of the trial there has been this grassroots push for accountability I met the awans of Brooks in this attila shore subdivision just outside Brunswick the spot where her nephew ahmaud Arbery was killed This is where he lands late to rest This is where it was right here It's a neighborhood filled with large oak trees and brick ranch style homes a sign in one front yard declares we run with Ahmad Arbery a former high school athlete lived about two miles from here Brooke says this was one of his running routes It was common for him to run Am I really ran like all over Brunswick This was just a good place We thought you know because it was a neighborhood off the highway You know he would drive through his neighborhood and then cross the highway But some residents here had grown suspicious of Arbery after repeatedly seeing him entering a new home construction site So it has some of the construction That's defendant Travis mcmichael on a 9-1-1 call minutes before he shot ahmaud Arbery Okay what did you do The dispatcher said she'll send police But asks what was he doing wrong Then there's a second 9-1-1 call from Travis's father Gregory mcmichael also a defendant Where it's until a short I don't know what we were all Seconds later you hear three shotgun blasts The yuans of Brooks says she often imagines what that moment must have been like for her nephew trapped in fighting for his life Now she's bracing herself to hear defendants argued this all happened because they suspected Arbery in neighborhood thefts And even if you steal something nobody has the decision to make As far as being the judge the jury and the executioner At trial Travis and Gregory mcmichael and another neighbor William Bryan will face state charges of murder false imprisonment and aggravated assault for chasing armory and pickup trucks and shooting him to death They've separately been charged with federal hate crimes That trial is scheduled for early next year Arbery's shooting has drawn intense national scrutiny happening around the same time that racial justice protests were erupting in response to police killings There were serious questions about how Glenn county officials originally handled the case Nothing happened until cell phone video of the killing recorded by defendant Bryan was released months later on social media The former district attorney now faces charges she tried to shield the mcmichaels from prosecution The Alder mcmichael had worked as an investigator in the DA's office and was a former police officer His son had been in the coast guard Several judges and prosecutors have recused themselves from the case It took nearly three months before arrests were made after mounting public pressure and the Georgia bureau of investigation taking the case from Glenn county police This body cam video shows police treating Travis mcmichael with great care and deference as he stood literally with blood on his hands while Arbery lay in the street That's okay Okay If he were to stop Like I said just take a breath They were given a courtesy that the normal citizen would not have received Pastor John Perry was president of the local NAACP when Arbery was killed In particular in the black community if you were found to have killed someone Yeah you getting handcuffed and you're getting booked Perry is running for mayor of Brunswick in the aftermath of Arbery's killing He is part of a crowded field that reflects a wider political awakening He says this case is a prime example of why many black citizens see the justice system as tainted Some people call it the good old boy system I call it relationships of privilege.

"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..

"arbery" Discussed on Court TV Podcast

"Equa mercy. Join his acklin great to see you. Did He. How dare you? How dare you? This is my house and you're wearing yenkey stuff. Scion unapologetically hello. All right well I just hope that during our debate I do better than the mets do against the Yankees that's. Hoping all right, let. This is what we're GONNA to talk about is the video. The video and the Aubrey case is an amazing piece of evidence. For the prosecution against the McMichael's because you see everything they do. Those are the two guys with the guns in the pickup, one of whom shoots and kills armory. But I think unfortunately. It's a great piece of evidence for the man who is recording that video. Roddy Brian Acklin you do not agree with me. Do not you are wrong. You're wrong. All right I'M GONNA go first, and it starts here and I say unfortunately and I want to preface that folks I'm not making an argument for Roddy. Brian what I'm telling you is what's going to happen and unfortunately this is a great piece of evidence for Roddy, Brian, this video and it comes down to the arguments that Kevin Goth is attorney. Make look at the facts surrounding the video, the only person on the face of the earth who knows this video is being made and being recorded at the time. It's being made in recorded. Is Roddy Brian Okay. He's the only one that knows. That this video exists. He's the only person on earth okay. So, if in fact, prosecutors are going to argue that these three men are working as a lynch mob. Are they going to argue that Roddy Brian's job as part of this lynch mob is to Corral And make sure that you record the lynching, so we can memorialize all of this. And don't forget how everyone finds out about the recording. Roddy Brian at the scene. Invites police into his truck to view the video, so police show up there. Just investing you try to figure out what happens and Ronnie Brian. Tells Police. Listen I got I've got it on video. I, recorded it. Please take a look at it. Shows it to them right then and there. So. Again. Unfortunately, the argument that Kevin Goth can make is lazy. Let's go inside the body Brian. What's his intent? Here was his intent to lynch. Ahmad Aubrey. If so, why would he record a crime? And then why? When police show up the first thing he would do is hand over to police the evidence of the crime that he committed. This goes one hundred percent into the mindset of Roddy Brian and this is a strong argument that Kevin Goth can make to a jury. that. Why on earth would someone record their own crime and then the first thing they do when police show up? Is hand the piece of evidence over to them. ACKLIN. Arguing was very compelling in sense. It's you can tell that you're not racist. By the argument that you provided because we did not include the racist element. Ronnie, Brian in the Michael's were racist, and they were on age racist Tirade. That is why they went around. That is why they have video. As you can see back in the day when they did lynchings in wasn't prided, they had videos. They need pictures of it because they were excited about what they did. We are in a world in which we have <hes>. Presidential rallies in which races tirades are invited so to to be to say that Haiti's men weren't in building would be wrong. They were in bolted with regards to the back surrounding the video. Let's talk about it the fact surrounding videos. Let's talk about the video. When he was I invited. It was no audio I. Don't know I have that function in my recording in the sense in which I can record a thin ideo in not on your. You know who had the. Mr Brian. We didn't hear the shock in the basement of something that somebody about to die. Why because that million participating in now? He missed a whole big piece of evidence in that pieces of Ahmad. Berry was found on missed the giants car. Pieces that means that evidence of Mr Bridge that means that he hit. The armory with his car to prevent him for movie. To say that he was unarmed is wrong. Mr Robin Mister Bryant had the biggest weapon it at the time. Which is the whole vehicle? Truck with a whole trump down at he did his way, even had that man was cool hand Luke because he was watching a murder, and nobody asked for the audio initially because he was a murder. You know who that the cops you had racist cops come to a racist situation. Leave. The racism states okay hit him with the high side and let him live for three months. Months without any interruption to say that Mister. Bryant wasn't guilty is a farce. He was very much guilty at an end for three months. They watched a video and immig miles. What because they were able to stop? Being friends after Arboretum was shot and killed, they were still friends. They still had the video. They watched it so much, so daddy opened the door to sexual crimes. The this, this case should shock the conscience because the levels of racism in this case is unreasonable, we act three different prosecutors. This prosecutor who saw this in didn't think that this was a murder. We had officers at the scene saw this. In, dot, this which justify so the the Glenn Races. When the most important that evidence of our very being on righties car was still on his car. Three months acted incident and nearly care to wash off so. That that is that the video helps Brian. Totally doesn't work acting that. You didn't plinking most so. The prosecutors are going to argue. That Roddy Brian. Was Racist which they can. Was In cahoots and knew the police would not charge him, which is why he shared the video with police, and knew the process and shared it with the prosecutor because he knew the prosecutor would never charge them, is that do you think that is? An argument that is going to fly with the again. This I'm saying. These are all unfortunate facts for prosecutors in this case, and the prosecutors are going to have to prosecute. Roddy Brian. The McMichael's the local Glenn County Police and the prosecutor's office all in the same trial in order for that theory of yours to to not help. Roddy Brian? Welcome welcome to the practicing law. The South the levels of racism is so appeared like many I. I have to think of Armagh. Arbitrary. That I may get I get that I. Get that, but here's my point. My point is this makes that video the fact that he shoots video and there's more obstacles now. Prosecutors unfortunately again that and to me the obstacle is not only do I have to prosecute these three men. I've got to prosecute the local police and I've got to prosecute the local prosecutor and guess what I'm probably going to have to do it in Glynn County. Georgia. That makes the case more difficult. It's like it's like A. It's like a harper. Literally, but this is what in is in the south? We Wanna say that we come. We've come so far, but that's what it is, and that's how that's how big it is. That's how big it is I think we're agreeing here <unk>. Hear me out here me out on my theory and why we're agreeing okay, because we're. We're making to arguments that are. <hes> not necessarily in conflict everything you're saying. I'm I'm agreeing with. Right. I, just have to get you to agree with the fact that the case is a little bit harder against Roddy Brian with him shooting that video and handing it to police, because now prosecutors have to take on the police and the prosecutors right so. Can we agree on that yes? Yes, all right all right I think we solved it. I think we did. This is a big moment, but I will not ever. Ever cheer for the Yankees. Especially when they play my mets, that will never happen, but I think we can agree here. To a certain extent that the there's going to be some obstacles here, but I think what you have shown me. And made me realize how you look at the case. You know I look at the case a certain way, but I have to get a different mentality onto to to get to that next level. So? Wow Acklin, always great having you on the show for having go Yankees got. That will be her last time on the show by the way. Either that or we can edit that out next time. We'll just bleep it out. Right Acklin mercy, incredible criminal defense attorney. In Georgia knows Georgia law. Insider knows Georgia juries, which is the most important part of of trying to case when we come back. I WANNA, talk about hate crimes, because at the time of the Amman archery shooting there was no hate crime. Law in Georgia and people were. Besides themselves coast to coast. When you come back I'm going to explain to you why it's really not a big deal. Especially in this case, number one and number two. Hate crimes. Are Way too over height by the media.
