on 90.1 ABE I'm Jim beris three men accused in the killing of ahmaud Arbery are guilty of murder That decision from a Brunswick jury this afternoon Atlanta attorney Alicia luncheon has been watching the trial closely Luncheon a former prosecutor worked under Linda who was the main prosecutor in the Arbery trial and Alicia luncheon is with us live now via Zoom Alicia welcome Hi Jim Thank you for having me Can everybody hear me okay Coming through loud and clear We mentioned that you worked under prosecutor Linda dawki as you watched her prosecute the three defendants in this case What were you seeing that was let's say her prosecutory style Yes Jim I did train under the when she was a senior district attorney at the DA's office I was a new prosecutor What I liked most about Linda's style is she reminds me of a law school professor The mark of a great attorney is somebody who can explain the loss succinctly and eloquently and really break down these large complex topics into easily digestible terms and have the jury understand the law and apply the law to the facts of the case I thought she did that beautifully And I think the jury's sentences at the verdict I did in fact reflect her prosecutorial style and that it did work Can you give us some insight into maybe what she was feeling or how she works behind the scenes when preparing for a case like this I have no doubt that Linda got no sleep over the tenure of this trial It is extremely high stress particularly in a case like this one where the whole nation is watching you and hanging on to your every breath What I really liked is when she got Travis mcmichael on the stand and cross examined him I thought she did that beautifully beautifully executed the fact that ahmaud Arbery didn't have anything on him that an ID not a gun not a bag nothing I thought she did a great job at having Travis mcmichael really hanging himself with his own rope so to speak There were some obvious and well publicized misses in the defense when they were up and questioning the witnesses How strong though do you think their argument was overall I didn't think their argument was very strong overall Jim I got to be honest with you as a defense attorney the first thing I'll tell you is that we know everybody has the right to representation It is your constitutional right to have a defense But I think there's a way to do that I thought in this case the defense attorneys tried to play to what they thought the audience would like which I think were racial epitaphs and racism particularly when the defense attorney got on the gotten into her closing and started to discuss ahmaud Arbery's dirty toenails I thought that cross over the line into just indecency and it's clear that the jury wasn't convinced by those arguments A lot of people share that that reaction What about William roddy Bryan's attorney Kevin Goff We understand that he is planning to file an appeal to actually have the case thrown out the trial thrown out and redone What do you think on the grounds of that I think that you can't file an appeal just because you don't like the results of this case And that's the feeling I get This is the attorney that has throughout the trial talked about how he didn't want any black pastors in the courtroom and how there were black Panthers There's a people protesting outside of the courtroom and had repeatedly moved for a mistrial And much like how all of those motions were a mistrial were dismissed So too I think will be his appeal I didn't see any issues throughout the prosecution's case that were appeal eligible I thought that they represented their side correctly and I think that the jury properly applied the facts to the law As we go forward what do you expect in terms of sentencing While jam what we have here under Georgia law is the maximum here would be the death penalty but the state did not seek the death penalty here So what we're looking at is life with or life without the possibility of parole for all three defendants I know the state probably will move for life without the possibility of parole We can expect the sentencing hearing the defense attorneys to present evidence and mitigation So evidence that shows that the defendant should receive some sort of leniency and sentencing from the judge you know I got to tell you I think this judge was no nonsense straightforward And I don't expect him to give any leniency to the defendants but I guess we'll have to see what happens at the hearing Alicia luncheon is a former prosecutor now a defense attorney in Atlanta Alicia thank you for talking to us this afternoon.

"I'm the well king good morning The fed says it will start scaling back the economic aid It provided during the pandemic is going to taper bond buying but it will also keep interest rates near zero David Wesley from the brookings institution is back with Escobar and David Good morning Okay so explain how bond buying stimulates the economy in the first place Okay so at the beginning of the pandemic the Federal Reserve set short term interest rates to zero but it wanted to continue to provide some support to the economy so it started buying a $120 billion a month in bonds and mortgage backed securities to depress longer term interest rates like the ones we pay on mortgages And what the fed said yesterday is they're going to gradually tapers the word by cutting that 15 billion a month so that by the middle of next year they won't be buying any bonds Now this probably won't have any direct effect on consumers but over time it will tend to lift long-term interest rates like the ones that people pay when they get a mortgage to buy a house And the fed is doing this now why Because everything's gone back to normal I can't but why now Well actually they're saying that we're getting close to normal They're saying that we've had a lousy patch because of the delta variant of the coronavirus But they expect the economy to be picking up momentum hiring They're seeing a lot of price increases And they're saying the private sector consumers and businesses are demanding enough so that the government sector both the budget the tax and spending and monetary policy can pull back a little bit So it's fundamentally they're optimistic reading of the economy that they can wean it off of this extraordinary support they gave during the pandemic Consumer prices as you well know have risen by 5.4% in the last year Jerome Powell again said yesterday that this is transitory It's the word we keep hearing Let's play a little bit of that It remains the case that the drivers of higher inflation have been predominantly connected to the dislocations caused by the pandemic Specifically the effects on supply and demand from the shutdown the uneven reopening and the ongoing effects of the virus itself How unusual is it that this word transitory keeps being redefined to mean more time more time more time Well the very nature of this pandemic and the economic response is unusual The notion that the fed would say that inflation is up to 5% and transitory is unusual What Jay Powell is arguing is that their kinks in the supply chain are backups at the ports The companies are having difficulty coping with this surge in consumer demand that came as we got vaccinated and began to go shopping again He's saying I don't want to put the brakes on the economy now because I think this press upward pressure on prices is going to abate but he admits that there's a risk here And there are people inside the fed and outside the fed who warned that the fed is taking a big risk here That month after month of rising prices is going to lead people to expect higher inflation and that will become a self fulfilling prophecy Right because then people start negotiating for higher wages and they start assuming that the car that now costs $17,000 might cost $18,000 in a year So a lot of this a lot of these expectations in a very interesting way get baked in and become can become realities Let me ask you lastly Powell's term as fed chairs up in February Do you think he's going to be reappointed We don't know when President Biden is going to make an announcement but it sure looks to me like sometimes soon he will make an announcement and my expectation and that of most fed watchers and people in the markets is that he will reappoint Jay Powell to second four year term and fill some of the other pending vacancies at the fed with other people David wessel is director of the Hutchins center on fiscal and monetary policy at brookings David thank you again You're welcome A jury has been seated in the trial of three men accused of murdering ahmaud Arbery and Georgian He was a black man running through a neighborhood the defendants were three white men who took it upon themselves to chase him and now plead self defense One black man will be the only person on a nearly all white jury and pierce debi Elliott reports After weeks of intense questioning prosecutors and defense lawyers spent Wednesday exercising their peremptory strikes to narrow the jury pool to 12 plus four alternates But after the defense eliminated all but one perspective black juror prosecutor Linda dunikowski stood Gift your honor at this time Argued that defense lawyers unconstitutionally removed black members from the jury pool because of their race The defense struck bees jurors And in this case we're talking about the 11 African American jurors because of racial bias She asked judge Timothy Walmsley to reinstate some of them but first he heard from attorneys for the defendants father and son Gregory and Travis mcmichael and William roddy Bryan The three neighbors faced charges including murder aggravated assault and false imprisonment for chasing ahmaud Arbery with pickup trucks cornering him and shooting him to death in a struggle They say they suspected him in recent break ends Nearly all the potential jurors had seen graphic cell phone video of the killing recorded by defendant Bryan and many indicated they thought Arbery was targeted because of his race and had negative opinions of the defendants Greg mcmichael's attorney Lara hogue argued the defense struck jurors because of their fixed opinions not their race We stress 13 white people to this 11 number of 11 African Americans And those were based on the same reasons Your honor the same strong rooted bias Brian's lawyer Kevin Goff said he was just doing his job I have a right as defense counsel not to believe that answer And that has nothing to do with whether he's black white or Martian In the end judge Walmsley agreed in part with the prosecution's argument This court has found that there appears to be intentional discrimination in the pan But he said the law prevented him from reinstating black members to the jury pool because defense lawyers were able to cite race neutral reasons for striking them He called it a difficult balance One of the challenges that I think council recognized in this case is the racial overdose in the case So a jury of 11 white people and one black man will weigh the testimony and evidence and the defense argument that they acted in self defense That in a county where African Americans make up more than a quarter of the population For some the image of a nearly all white jury sitting judgment in South Georgia hearkens to another time I mean come on people I'm on Barbara online is with the transformative justice coalition It hurts We know how bias the.

he will make an announcement and my expectation and that of most fed watchers and people in the markets is that he will reappoint Jay Powell to a second four year term and fill some of the other pending vacancies at the fed with other people David Wesley is director of the Hutchins center on fiscal and monetary policy at brookings David thank you again You're welcome A jury has been seated in the trial of three men accused of murdering ahmaud Arbery and Georgian He was a black man running through a neighborhood the defendants are three white men who took it upon themselves to chase him and now plead self defense One black man will be the only person on a nearly all white jury and Piero's debi Elliott reports After weeks of intense questioning prosecutors and defense lawyers spent Wednesday exercising their peremptory strikes to narrow the jury pool to 12 plus four alternates But after the defense eliminated all but one perspective black juror prosecutor Linda Dona caskey stood Gift your honor at this time In the past he argued that defense lawyers unconstitutionally removed black members from the jury pool because of their race The defense struck bees jurors And in this case we're talking about the 11 African American jurors because of racial bias She asked judge Timothy wamsley to reinstate some of them But first he heard from attorneys for the defendants father and son Gregory and Travis mcmichael and William roddy Bryan The three neighbors faced charges including murder aggravated assault and false imprisonment for chasing ahmaud Arbery with pickup trucks cornering him and shooting him to death in a struggle They say they suspected him in recent break ends Nearly all the potential jurors had seen graphic cell phone video of the killing recorded by defendant Bryan and many indicated they thought Arbery was targeted because of his race and had negative opinions of the defendants Greg mcmichael's attorney Laura hoag argued the defense struck jurors because of their fixed opinions not their race We stress 13 white people to this 11 number of 11 African Americans and those were based on this same reason Your honor the same strong rooted bias Brian's lawyer Kevin Goff said he was just doing his job I have a right as the defense counsel not to believe that answer And that has nothing to do with whether he's black white or Martian In the end judge Walmsley agreed in part with the prosecution's argument This court has found that there appears to be intentional discrimination in the pound But he said the law prevented him from reinstating black members to the jury pool because defense lawyers were able to cite race neutral reasons for striking them He called it a difficult balance One of the challenges that I think counsel recognized in this case is the racial overdose in the case So a jury of 11 white people and one black man will weigh the testimony in evidence and the defense argument that they acted in self defense That in a county where African Americans make up more than a quarter of the population For some the image of a nearly all white jury sitting judgment in South Georgia harkens to another time I mean come on people Come on Barbara online is with the transformative justice coalition It hurts I mean we know how biased the system is We know how big a fight an uphill fight this is to get justice for ah But my goodness that was chilling For Arbery's family the jury makeup is a blow His mother Wanda Cooper Jones I was very shocked that we only had one black African American man I mean that was devastating Opening statements are set for Friday morning Debbie Elliott NPR news Brunswick Georgia This is NPR news.

"There are literally locked together mister Arbery it has one hand on the gun and one hand he's punching Travis in the head and Travis knows if I lose possession of this gun I'm dead And so he fires the gun in a sharper way does not stop coming at him And eventually he kills mister Aubrey The struggle was captured on cell phone video by the third suspect William Bryan who goes by the name roddy without roddy Bryan there would be no case Kevin Goff as Brian's lawyer Brian was in the second pickup truck chasing Arbery gough says his client had nothing to do with the shooting and has cooperated fully with the investigation He says it's wrong to cast this case in light of the nation's broader struggle for equal justice In some ways it feels like these folks are being pursued punished Prosecute however you want to describe it In a sense or a way of atoning for the sins of law enforcement real or perceived in the administration of justice And that's unfortunate Many do see this trial in the context of other prominent racial justice cases which have had a mixed bag of verdicts Ahmaud Arbery as yet another name on a list that includes Trayvon Martin Walter Scott Breonna Taylor and George Floyd and historically the hundreds who came before says Bobby Henderson cofounder of a better Glenn a grassroots group formed last year in response to Arbery's killing Here we are in the south and we witnessed a lynching How far away from 1892 That's what's on the line Standing on the steps of the historic Glen county courthouse Henderson says for too long places like this did not afford justice to people like him He sees this case as a test of whether that has changed Here we are again With another opportunity to can we sustain any of this momentum toward true equity equality and justice or are we just stuck in a cycle of some people get it in some people don't It depends The American constitution should not be a parchment of it depends His group has worked to organize people and voters and has lobbied for policy changes and investigations And in the last year the needle has moved The district attorney who failed to investigate Arbery's killing was voted out of office and is now under indictment for her handling of the case The Georgia legislature repealed the state's citizens arrest law and passed new hate crimes legislation And Glenn county has a new police chief The first black man to lead the department Henderson says those are steps toward a more inclusive government We think that that is a direct reflection on the amount of work that we've done to get the people to realize their own power And where they can utilize their power in order to create their own good Ahmaud Arbery's aunt the Alonzo Brooks recognizes the change that has come in her nephew's.

"Difficult time finding guests who see him any differently. But we'll take a closer look when we come back fato court. Tv live over the air uninterrupted. If you're watching television with an antenna just re scan your channels now to add court. Tv and go to kotei dot com to see the exact channel position and more ways to watch court tv and your area. Mr brian is the one armed with a cell phone. Not guns mr. Brian didn't shoot anybody. So you know. I understand that there are people out there pursuing their own agendas outside of this criminal case For their own reasons but again when you can find and look at the actual evidence a jury is going to here. It's pretty clear that mr brian is a is a very different position We would submit than than the mcmichael's And that's not to say that the mcmichael's don't have a strong defense. We believe they do and certainly defense keys in many ways off of theirs. But if you put aside the high and the spin and you actually sit down and look at the evidence and the video is just one part of the evidence in this case that mr brian has no criminal responsibility in this shooting whatsoever again. That's kevin goff the attorney. For william roddy brian. He's the third defendant in the case. He's the one who recorded the video. He doesn't have a gun okay. In the in the beginning people were talking about. Oh maybe he's got a gun on the video you hear clicking There's no evidence that he had a gun. No indication no allegations that he had a gun. Clicking very well could have been his seat buckle but it's clear that he's recording the whole thing and matt johnson still with us matt. You know. I look at rodney bryan. And i do see him differently now. I don't know if that if that makes a difference for criminal responsibility but in what happened that day. Well i think there's a whole big question about vigilante ism and what his intentions were. And i think that that is going to play into why he's sitting there with the two other men but i do think that we have to look at him a little bit differently because after all he is the reason why this is actually going to trial right because he shot the video. He drove dangerously shooting cell phone driving a a heavy truck at the same time. There should be criminal charges against that. But you know he. Data video went viral. And that is the reason why there was eventually charges in this case it was passed from d. a. ada because of the dad. greg mcmichael tasked with law enforcement. But that's the reason why we're here right. It is and kevin gospel saying from the beginning. He says my client shouldn't be defending. Should be the star witness in in all of this but that aside and i understand why people see them all together as one. Because you've got to trucks chasing someone three men to trucks. I get it all. But i see some some distinct differences and there's some questions that i need answered at the trial and the first one. I've tried to get kevin golf to answer several times. But he always says. I can't speak for roddy. Brian While you're his attorney you can speak form but is why. Why was he recording. The video to me. That unlocks everything. If we get the truth and again you know you have to decide what the truth is. But why is he shooting that video. Why is he recording that video. And my initial approach to it is people who are committing crimes for the most part who have the intent to commit a crime don't record themselves committing the crime and then when police come they don't tell police. I've got a recording of the crime. I just committed. And that's what happened in this case matt. He records it. Nobody in the world knows that he has recorded. Except for roddy brian as soon as police respond one of the first things he tells them is. Yeah i've got the whole thing on video and gives the video police at the scene to me and again. I don't know what the criminal responsibility is going to be. I don't know what the answer to the question is but to me. There's a great argument that kevin gov could make that there's no consciousness of guilt for roddy bryant. Even if what he's doing was wrong he has no consciousness of guilt which to me says there was no intent to commit a crime no acknowledgement in his mind that he thought he was committing a crime because he recorded it and then the first thing he does when police respond is he gives it to them when they have no idea to even exists and no acknowledgement that they committed. Any crimes charged for like they're sitting there in court and they're like why are we even here. That's a great point. You just made because he was just basically saying here. Look you know we were doing something in our is that we thought was helpful. And i'm reporting this because we were doing something good so i mean but yet at the day they're sitting out on a defense table looking at twenty twenty. Hindsight is like doesn't look that good roddy now. The other part of the video is that the video was leaked by someone connected to the defense. And i think it was. One of the mcmichael's leaked the video believing that that would clear everything up for them. And that's the part that is always taken me aback for a second. And i'm like even at the point. That d'amato aubrey is dead. There's an investigation. All the controversy with the different. Da's involved in the but before this becomes a national an viral hit that the video has to be released. It's leaked by someone connected to these defendants. it's not leaked by prosecutors to me. That is unbelievable that they believe that video is great evidence that nothing illegal happened that day. Well i also find it very interesting and maybe to the defense of writing himself. You know he's still driving his car. As we're watching the video of ahmad jogging down the street trying to avoid avoid the mcmichael's who are already part industry and in a position of confrontation of what could appear so roddy is catching up to to them. So i find that interesting to and again. The like circled around and circle. I mean they were chasing them and then had to circle around because Ahmad changes directions and everything. They're clearly trying to track him down and then it comes to the other question. Roddy brian which is he's not part of this. Initial chase the initial chases greg mcmichael season motto. Rb running through the neighborhood right. He says he's hall and bleep through the neighborhood and then he goes travis the guy that guy from the videos guy from the videos. He's he's running through the neighborhood. Grab your gun. And they grab their guns and they get to pick up and they tried to chase him and as they're chasing him through the neighborhood. Roddy bryce just out on his porch. And i guess he sees his neighbors who he recognizes. I don't think there's a close relationship there. Between the michaels and righty brian. But they kind of know each other neighbors because it's a relatively small neighborhood but he sees them chasing someone who's running now. He has no idea how this whole thing started yet. He decides to jump in and join the chase and the whole thing on his cell phone. Then say to the police here. I did this year. You got right right and let me play for everyone. Kevin goth explaining how they are interpreting. The actions and the decision made by. Roddy brian.
