The Georgia father and son charged in the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery are back in court Friday to argue for their release on bond.

It is the second day of arguments in a lengthy hearing that began Thursday, when defense attorneys brought several witnesses to testify on behalf of the suspects, arguing the pair poses no flight risk or threat to public safety.

But prosecutors are fighting to keep the two white men in jail as they await trial on the February killing of 25-year-old Arbery, an unarmed Black man who was chased and shot while running in a residential area outside Brunswick.

In the courtroom Friday, prosecutor Jesse Evans argued that ex-cop Gregory McMichaels and his son Travis pose a “significant danger” to the community and should not be released. He also said the elder McMichael has “vigilante views” and could potentially try obstructing the ongoing investigation.

2. No threat to public safety.

Interesting defense. Wonder if that includes everyone's public safety or just the white folks. If they weren't a threat to public safety they wouldn't have shot Ahmaud and wouldn't be in jail currently.
