Jurors in the murder trial of the three Georgia men charged in Ahmaud Arbery's killing listened to hours of closing arguments Monday as four attorneys presented various views of what happened on that day early last year.

The prosecution said Arbery was "under attack" by white men who saw a Black man running in their small coastal neighborhood and hopped in pickup trucks to pursue him.

Defense attorneys for two of the men painted a picture of residents on edge about crime in the neighborhood and said the men were trying to detain Arbery for police. An attorney for the third said his client was a witness who merely documented the killing.

  1. I come to you most high and ask that you put the most positive energy over this jury to look at the evidence and fid the unjustice that was done to Mr.Arbery and come to a conclusion on the punishment on these 3 men who took justice in their own hands and took this man from his mother. I ask that due diligence will come to pass. Thank you AMEN

  2. receive Jesus Christ as Savior (John 3:16; Romans 10:9), we will be forgiven and promised an eternal home in heaven (Romans 8:1).

    God allows things to happen for a reason. Whether or not we understand His reasons, we must remember that God is good, just, loving, and merciful (Psalm 135:3). Often, bad things happen to us that we simply cannot understand. Instead of doubting God’s goodness, our reaction should be to trust Him. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5–6). We walk by faith, not by sight.

  3. “Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.”

    (1 Samuel 15:3)

  4. A private person may arrest an offender if the offense is committed in his presence or within his immediate knowledge. If the offense is a felony and the offender is escaping or attempting to escape, a private person may arrest him upon reasonable and probable grounds of suspicion.

    If the person saw first hand knowledge of a felony, then there is no grounds to detain the individual on ground of suspicion. Therefore the second part of the statue has to be separate from the first.
    They have reason belief detain due to prior situations involving Aubrey being in neighborhood trespassing within time frame at least 6 property crimes were committed.
