I commend the judge in this case for staying reasonable and maintaining his judicial demeanor throughout some batshit racist actions by the defense. You know these three will appeal, and the judge's actions will make that very hard for them.

Mr. Arbery,like so many in thesew situations,was actually a thieving piece of shit with a criminal record. He was no more "jogging" than the man in the moon. However,those fucking idiots had NO right to do what they did.Justice was served,but lets see how fast the lawsuits start flying from the family .Ghetto lottery dont ya know. 2 weeks ago,before the race baiting preachers rolled into town,there was about 6 protestors .Once those racist fucks rolled in,next thing you know its a thing. I know,because this is literally right up the street from me. Notice how its ALWAYS the criminals that get killed and they make into saints,yet the hard working father of 3 or the college student with the bright future that was killed by one of their own dont even get a mention. So sick of the hypocrisy in the black community.

[quote]Before the day of his death, Arbery had been spotted on surveillance footage inside the construction site of a Brunswick, Ga. house owned by local homeowner Larry English. Residents of the community had reported crime in the Satilla Shores neighborhood, including thefts of belongings from English’s boat and a gun from Travis McMichael’s unlocked truck.

[quote]Neither of the parties asserted any evidence tying Arbery to either crime, and English testified that he never authorized the McMichaels and Bryan to confront people on his property.

[quote]During opening statements, a different attorney for Travis McMichael framed the case as one about his client’s “duty and responsibility” to his community. The three men claim to have had probable cause to suspect Arbery of a burglary and wanted to execute a citizen’s arrest.

[quote]Defense summations followed the same template, adding a refrain that sometimes “duty and responsibility” is “intertwined with heartache and tragedy.” McMichael’s lawyer depicted his client’s actions as an unanticipated escalation of his effort to hold Arbery long enough for the authorities. He argued that his client was right to be suspicious when Arbery ran away from the property and would not speak to him.

[quote]Defense summations fell shortly after the prosecution systematically tore into the citizen’s arrest claims. A citizen’s arrest, prosecutors noted, only can be effectuated when a felony is committed in front of you or takes place within your immediate knowledge. For the latter, Dunikoski compared immediate knowledge to a person watching security camera footage in real time at Walmart and seeing an offense occur. Prosecutor Dunikoski said that Arbery was a “lookie-loo” on English’s property—a misdemeanor, at most, she said. Glynn County police Officer Robert Rash testified during the trial that he would have let off Arbery with a warning.

Not suprised with this verdict just as I wasn't surprised with the Rittenhouse verdict. They both make sense given the evidence and the charges. Everyone is such afanatic these days. They only look at cases through the lens of their politics so verdicts are right and wrong purely for political reasons.

Interesting that progressive who support bail reform, minors not being tried as adults and the end of the death penalty completely reverse their positions when the "other side." is involved. It's kind of comical.

The problem with the Rittenhouse case wasn’t the trial; it was Wisconsin law. The prosecution has the burden of proof. They must prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that it was not self-defense. Very difficult.

The Jogger:

"Court documents introduced by the defense now contradict this narrative and not only show that Arbery had a long criminal history in multiple jurisdictions, including a widely reported incident in which he brought a gun to a high school, but that he was actually a well-known burglar and shoplifter known locally as “the jogger” because he would use jogging as his alibi when questioned by police, or as a facade before, during, and after committing a crime.

“On October 23, 2018, Burke County reports and Burke County officer bodycam video reveal Mr. Arbery and two juveniles were confronted in a vacant mobile home by the Burke County Sheriff’s Office,” a portion of the court documents read. “Mr. Arbery Ran when confronted by the authorities. He was later caught and lied, stating he was just out running.” Arbery was later charged with obstruction in connection with the case.

In the months leading up to his death, Arbery was once again investigated for crimes centered around jogging when a string of convenience store robberies put him back on the radar of police.

“In 2019 and 2020,” the documents read, “local convenience store witness interviews reveal Mr. Arbery became known as ‘the jogger’ for his repeated conduct and behaviors of running up, stretching in front, and then entering several convenience stores where he would grab items and run out.” According to the documents, Arbery became violent on several occasions when confronted about his criminal behavior.

“In 2020, witness cell phone video reveals Mr. Arbery was confronted at a convenience store by employees about his theft conduct and behavior. Mr. Arbery, cornered about his thefts, chose to fight a man who worked on the location…”

Or how the defense tried to stack the jury by eliminating people of color. Or how the one defense attorney wanted to ban black pastors or how the other felt "long dirty toenails" would resonate with the jury.

After today's verdict I'm actually feeling like there may be a tiny bit of hope for rural Georgia.

There is nothing wrong with that law. It places the burden where it belongs - on the government.

That is the law in many other places and it is the law in my jurisdiction - D.C.

African American defendants benefit from this law as well.

by Anonymousreply 57November 24, 2021 8:55 PM

Self defense laws need to be changed. It is a legitimate thing to defend yourself. But the use of deadly force is very, very seldom necessary for that. If you are pursuing someone, it cannot be "self defense." When you are holding a gun against an unarmed person, killing is not self defense. You could argue self defense for shooting someone in the leg to keep them from attacking you, but killing them? Reasonable force is supposed to be reasonable...

Self defense situations are usually very fast moving scenarios and you use what you have and you aim where you can. It's very easy to sit at your keyboard in a calmly and dispassionately dissect these events as if people really have that kind of luxury.

The Rittenhouse videos should be all people need to know to see how it all went down. Including the earlier videos of how crazy and violent Rosenbaum was behaving and directing that rage at Rittenhouse.

Often by the time you have to use self-defense you could already be injured or incapacitated or even just disoriented and there is often a strength disparity between the attacker and the attacked. Stronger people or people with their adrenaline pumping to the point they want to attack you are usually working off a surge of power.

None of the people who attacked Rittenhouse were unarmed. Not even Rosenbaum who was trying to get that gun. A man who had been acting violently erratic all night and had focused on Rittenhouse, this young looking and not very strong teen, to the point that he threatened to kill him if he got him alone. You want to take your chances that he just wanted to get your gun to clean it for you. The naivete is amazing here.

Even if the Wisconsin law had been different, Rittenhouse's situation would have still met the self defense laws in any state because he retreated at least three times in that scenario until he could retreat no further. Two of those attackers (Rosenbaum and Huber) tried to wrest his gun from him which in and of itself is grounds for self defense anywhere.

Thankfully Rittenhouse had a good common sense jury who didn't try to suggest he pepper spray his attackers in the leg.

R70 Travis McMichael, the one who pulled the trigger, was convicted of malice murder. He won't be eligible for parole at all (unless it's reversed on appeal).

The other two, convicted of felony murder, will be eligible for parole in about seven years. That being said, the average person who is actually granted parole will have spent about 25 years in prison.
