Unfortunately, I feel the Arbery case also will end up this way with the shooters declared as 'Innocent' and the killing legitimate.
But the real reason that we all know is that they are getting killed because they are 'Black'. Period.
Who is/was David Brown?
Sorry for getting the name wrong. It was actually Michael Brown that I was talking about. The guy from Ferguson, Missouri that was killed by the white police officer, Darren Wilson in August, 2014.
Ah, I see. FWIW, Michael Brown was a criminal and was killed in self-defense after he violently robbed a store and then attacked the first police officer he saw afterwards. This was confirmed by multiple investigations, multiple credible eyewitness accounts, and forensic evidence.
For a clear account of what actually happened that day, I recommend reading the DOJ report on the shooting (link here: https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/f ... rown_1.pdf ). The "hands up, don't shoot" story that was prevalent in the aftermath of the shooting was determined to have been a complete lie. One black man who witnessed the shooting told investigators that if he had been armed at the time, he would have shot Brown himself.
