after Arbery’s:

    ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia moved closer Thursday to the possible repeal of an 1863 law that lets private citizens make an arrest, more than a year after the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man chased by white men who said they suspected he had committed a crime. House Bill 479 was approved unanimously by the chamber’s Judiciary Committee and could soon move to the House floor for a vote. Georgia’s current law was enacted during the Civil War and allows citizens to arrest someone if a crime is committed in their presence or they have “immediate knowledge” that a crime has been committed. Critics say it has long been used to justify lynchings of African Americans. Gov. Brian Kemp has endorsed the bill, saying Arbery’s death on Feb. 23, 2020, shows it’s time for the law to be changed. “Some tried to justify the actions of the...
    The mother of Ahmaud Arbery, the 25-year-old Black man who was pursued and fatally shot last year while jogging through a Georgia neighborhood, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday alleging an attempt by police and prosecutors to "cover up" her son's murder. The suit comes exactly one year after Arbery was allegedly cornered and shot by a group of civilian men. On February 23, 2020, Arbery was jogging through a Brunswick neighborhood when he stopped at a construction site for a drink of water or to rest, the complaint said. As he continued his run, he was then allegedly pursued and then cornered by Gregory McMichael and his son Travis, who are both White. A third man, William Bryan, is also accused of boxing Arbery in with his truck before Travis shot him three times. More than two months after Arbery's death, the McMichaels were arrested and charged with murder and...

Kemp’s office said the bill, which will be carried by state Rep. Bert Reeves (R), would overhaul the state’s current citizen's arrest law to help eliminate “any potential legal loopholes that could be used to justify vigilantism.” Currently, a “private person may arrest an offender if the offense is committed in his presence or within his immediate knowledge,” the law states. “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...
    (CNN)Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced an overhaul of the state's citizen's arrest law Tuesday, one that was used to justify the death of Ahmaud Arbery last year. Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, was out for a jog near Brunswick, Georgia, on February 23, 2020, when he was chased down in a truck by three men and fatally shot. Two of the three men -- Gregory and Travis McMichael -- claimed to be conducting a citizen's arrest and acted in self-defense. Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp speaks a press conference at the Capitol on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.Under the new law, a detained offender must be released or the person conducting the citizen's arrest must call law enforcement within an hour. If authorities do not arrive within an hour, the detainee must be released, according to CNN affiliate WGCL-TV. The Civil War-era law initially said a private person can arrest an offender...
    By JEFF AMY, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia's governor is backing a plan to overhaul the state's citizen's arrest law, taking aim at a statute scrutinized last year after white men fatally shot Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man they claimed had committed a crime. Since 1863, Georgia's written law has allowed a private citizen to make an arrest if a crime is committed in the person’s presence “or within their immediate knowledge." Advocates say the law is steeped in racism and slavery, and was used to round up suspected escaped slaves and then as a justification for the lynching of African Americans. Gov. Brian Kemp said Tuesday that he wants to end the citizen's arrest practice. Kemp's plan would let security guards, store employees and restaurant employees hold alleged wrongdoers for up to an hour until law enforcement arrives. Kemp, a Republican, said the February 2020 killing of Arbery...

    The Georgia father and son who are jailed on murder charges in the February shooting of Ahmaud Arbery have been denied bond. Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley on Friday ordered that Gregory and Travis McMichael remain behind bars until trial, after prosecutors argued they had tried to interfere in the investigation. The McMichaels have been jailed since their arrests in May, more than two months after Arbery was slain. The McMichaels, who are white, chased and fatally shot the 25-year-old black man after they spotted him running in their neighborhood just outside the port city of Brunswick.  The bond ruling followed a marathon two-day hearing in which the defendants brought forth character witnesses to testify that the father and son don't harbor racist sentiment, while prosecutors introduced explosive text messages, and called on Arbery's mother to deliver an emotional victim-impact statement. At Friday's hearing, prosecutor Jesse Evans showed the court a mysterious coded...
    The Georgia district attorney, who was criticized for her handling of the Ahmaud Arbery shooting death, lost her reelection bid this week and put much of the blame on the case, which drew national attention. Keith Higgins, an independent, ousted Jackie Johnson, a Republican, who had served a decade as the top prosecutor in southeast Georgia's Brunswick Judicial Circuit. Johnson told the Associated Press that she believed Arbery's death played a major role in her defeat. "It was a very big factor," Johnson said. "I'm confident that when the truth finally comes out on that, people will understand our office did what it had to under the circumstances." Unofficial election returns Wednesday showed Johnson carried four of the five counties in her circuit. But Glynn County, where Arbery was killed and the circuit's most populous county, favored Higgins by a huge margin. Johnson called the newly-elected district...
    A Georgia prosecutor accused of mishandling the Ahmaud Arbery murder case was voted out of office Tuesday. Jackie Johnson, who has served as Brunswick County district attorney since 2010, was ousted by independent candidate Keith Higgins by a 69-31 margin with 89 percent of the ballots counted, WJXT-TV reported Wednesday. Johnson was the original prosecutor in Arbery’s shooting death on Feb. 23. The 25-year-old unarmed black jogger was killed after three white men — Gregory McMichael, his son Travis McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan — chased him down with their vehicles and tried to keep him from fleeing. The three, who are charged with murder, told police they believed Arbery was a burglar. The McMichaels eventually cut off Arbery and Travis McMichael shot him with a shotgun after a four-minute chase caught on viral video shot by Bryan. Johnson recused herself from the case because Gregory McMichael previously worked for...

Lovato described the conflicted feelings she had about what she should do in response to apparent racial injustice. "At first, I was self-conscious about speaking out about these issues because I didn't want anyone to feel like it wasn't genuine," Lovato wrote. "I also felt like I wanted to call every person of color that I knew and apologize, which I know isn't the right thing to do either. Like a lot of people, I didn't know what to do." "All I knew was that I hated that I shared the same skin color as the people accused of committing heinous crimes against Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and many, many other Black lives," Lovato...

    ATLANTA (AP) — A bill to let local voters decide whether to abolish the scandal-plagued Glynn County police department has gone to Gov. Brian Kemp for his approval or veto, having gained support in the Georgia legislature after the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery. The state House voted 159-3 on Monday to approve Senate Bill 504, creating a nonbinding advisory referendum on whether to abolish the department and hand its law enforcement responsibilities back to the elected county sheriff in unincorporated parts of the coastal Georgia county. A separate measure that would make the referendum binding passed the House on Friday by a vote of 152-3 and is pending before the Senate. If that also passes in the waning days of this legislative session, it would fall to Kemp to decide how much power to give the county’s voters to decide the issue in November. Glynn County...
