Ahmaud Arbery’s killer allegedly used a racial slur, investigator testifies

Ahmaud Arbery's killer allegedly used a racial slur, investigator testifies 1


William Bryan told investigators he heard Travis McMichael use a racial epithet after fatally shooting Ahmaud Arbery in Glynn County, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent testified Thursday at a preliminary hearing.
The hearing lasted about seven hours, with the judge ruling all three defendants — McMichael; his father, Gregory McMichael; and William "Roddie" Bryan — would stand trial on all charges.
GBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Richard Dial testified that Bryan told police Travis McMichael said "f***ing n***er" after three blasts from his shotgun left Arbery dead in the street in the Satilla Shores neighborhood in February. Body camera footage also showed a Confederate flag sticker on the toolbox of McMichael's truck, he said.
On cross-examination, Dial testified Bryan mentioned the slur in a May 13 GBI interview, and to Dial's knowledge, Bryan had not previously made the allegation, including during a May 11 interview.

  1. That’s sick and disgraceful! Justice for Ahmad!!!

  2. Rip arbery 🙏 for his mama and friends

    • …like you cared for Arbery. Praying hands. What a fake Amen crap you virtue signal.

      My question is…when will you start to think for yourself and not let the black leaders do it for you and when they need your destructive force they just need to snip their fingers and shout racism and off you go….

      Ever spent a single thought on that? I bet not. Too hard.

      I mean, even asians, who came later don’t need to be guided like the blacks.

      Again. When will you want to be free?

      The day you want that, knock on the doors of the Republican Party.

      You know, the party that freed the slaves.

      Not like the Dems, who had to be defeated back in the day because they wanted to keep ’em nice black slaves.

    • Amen 🙏

      @Voice Of Reality i don’t think so. What i see on cnn is brave and pretty good objective journalism. It may be that people see what they want…Fox or any source that defends racism is popular in this country. Too bad for a country that has so much potential because of its diversity and constitution. So many bigots want to have some “other” to blame for their own failing. Thanks to 40 + years of reganomics and vilifying progressives. Thanks gingrich, limbaugh, tea party, and the rest that don’t want to evolve with a changing world

    • @Joe Bidens Leg Hair How would you react to being the prey in the greatest game? You’re an idiot.

    • @Joe Bidens Leg Hair You act like they didn’t deserve that. They tried to run down a man because he went to check out a construction site.

    • Forever Holiday they did though. It was on CNN the day of the killing.

    • @04 FOREVER INVINCIBLE If someone pulls a gun at you, you have a right to defend yourself and shoot the guy in self defense!!

      They had no idea of him ever having done anything wrong before they hunted him down. It was a modern day lynching.

      @chase is people like you that is causing the USA downfall. God has a special place for you all. A special place in HELL.

    • @jameslock1Did you watch the video closely ,you dumb idiot.He was TRYINGto get away ,he didnt want to get shot so he tried to tackle the guy. That man always intended to capture this young man,even if it meant shooting him.It wasn’t their place to chase him and trap him(especially when he did nothing to them).They were observant but malicious as they had NO right to come into any contact with him whatsoever .It was stupid of them to act without thinking. Stupid of you to just mouth off whatever in that coconut of yours.Eyes and brain ,yet you can’t see nor think.U ought to b ashamed of yourself!

    • @chase It doesn’t matter what he was there doing.He wasn’t on their property. Why not try calling the police instead of trying to act like police. Well,now they will get time to think about their actions.

      @Chuck Hitter You’re entitle to be a racist, but you don’t need to hurt or kill anyone, your hate’s enough to hate yourself! Don’t need to hate others, who didn’t ‘ve anything to do with your failure in life.

    The sad takeaway is that they held the footage for months, the men faced no repercussions, and we’re only here today because of social media.

    Just think of the many other cases, like this, that will never see the light of day.

      Interesting enough you can watch the entire video and hear a gun shot but the gun is pointed to the ground. Then strangely enough with the victim having a shotgun wound from close distance keeps fighting. You figure it out.

    If you are on camera brutally murdering someone why do they need to go to court? I never get that

  18. Defense like: “He was not running away, he tried to run around the world to sneak up to them from behind to jump them.”
    They hunted him down to kill him. Plain and simple. Sentence them to life in prison and let them serve as an example that there will be no alternative to life in prison if you kill an unarmed, not threatening man or woman , no matter the colour of his skin.
