Judge Denies Bond to Father and Son Charged With Killing Ahmaud Arbery

A judge denied bond on Friday to the white father and son charged with murder in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, the 25-year-old Black man shot by the son after they chased him down a quiet road in Georgia.

The decision came on the second day of hearings over whether the men, Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael, should be freed on bail as they await trial over the Feb. 23 killing, which was captured on video by a third man, William Bryan, who has also been charged with murder. Mr. Arberyís mother wailed in the courtroom on Friday as prosecutors showed a video of the shooting.

The Arbery killing initially received little attention, but after The New York Times published an article about the case and the video of the killing was leaked, the men were arrested in May. Many activists saw the more than two-month delay between the killing and the menís arrest as a sign of corruption and racial bias, and the Arbery case was frequently referred to by protesters at the racial justice demonstrations that swept the United States over the summer.

Bond hearings rarely last longer than a few hours, but prosecutors and defense lawyers introduced a trove of evidence during the public hearings this week that shed new light on the case. Jesse Evans, a prosecutor who is trying the case, read messages on Thursday that he said were written by Travis McMichael, who the authorities have said shot Mr. Arbery. Mr. Evans said he had once used an anti-Asian slur on Facebook and, in a text message to a friend in November 2019, had talked about shooting somebody while using an anti-Black slur and stereotypes.

8. Right. None of them are the sharpest knives in the drawer.

I haven't hear whether the third guy who took the video is in jail, but the other two won't be getting out.

They'll be there until the trial from whence they'll go directly to prison, Monopoly style.

The dumb, racist assholes should've minded their own business and left the jogger alone.

9. The guy who filmed was charged, too.

But he may be out on bail since he's not mentioned here.

Ironically had the video not have been made, it would've been their word against the dead, and they would've likely got off.

But they should rot in prison for this blatant murder.

5. It enrages me that these stone-cold killers almost got away with the crime of stalking,

attacking and killing Mr. Arbery and almost got away with it. I'll never forget LE saying they were "wondering whether to press charges." REALLY?? You had to think about it?? And only when attention was brought to the case did the police realize they were gonna have to actually do something about the murder of an innocent jogger minding his own business.

Horrifying. Gag-worthy. Disgusting. Enraging.
