Oh, I hope they fry Bryan, guy is a scumbag throwing his friends and
neighbors under the bus in an attempt to save his own skin. *He* is the
one with established cases of using racial slurs, so he says Travis
McMichaels did. The prosecution *needs* this attack to be made racial, and
Bryan will gladly do that to get heat off himself.
But I`m not seeing them say the fibers were matched to Arbery`s
clothing. I`m not seeing them say the dent had anything to do with the
event. I`m not seeing them saying the palm print is Arbery`s. Other than
that this is good, strong stuff.

Forced out for political considerations. The black woman DA who took
over for this DA has as much reason to be recused as the other DAs did,
but she won`t recuse herself.
They have the judge they want to pull off this railroading.

I assume the shotgun. But no matter what it is, it is supportive of the
idea that there was no intent to kill.
It also has "Stop right there!"
Again supportive of an attempt to detain, not an intent to kill.
But don`t let facts get in the way of what you want to believe.

The autopsy has been out for awhile, the details have emerged. The
autopsy said the first shot was the one to the hand/wrist.

So you don`t know what this evidence is exactly, but you are impressed
with it nonetheless.

Then it should be easy enough to confirm that there were no blacks on
the ship Travis McMichaels served on. I`ll save you the effort, there

At night? And he went into the same house that night as he did on the
day of the shooting. And Travis McMichael told the dispatcher on the 11th
that Arbery either was armed, or was trying to act like he was. I suppose
this was just to justify shooting him to death over a week later.
And after being chased the night of the 11th, having the cops called on
him and fleeing the area he goes back in that *exact same house* on the
23rd? This make sense in the context of an innocent jogger? I`d find a new
place to jog, I would keep prowling in an area I clearly wasn`t welcome.
Now if I was a criminal snooping around for something to steal, these
actions would be very consistent with *that* narrative. But the children
don`t *like* that narrative, and you can`t make children eat their

"Prior thefts and trespassing incidents reported
In December 2019 and January 2020, residents of Satilla Shores reported
thefts, trespassing, and activities they deemed suspicious to police and
posted on the Satilla Shores Facebook page and Nextdoor account. Three
break-ins or thefts were reported. On December 8, 2019, a Satilla Shores
neighbor reported rifles stolen from their unlocked car. Police records
next reported a theft on December 28, 2019. On January 1, 2020, Travis
McMichael filed a report of a firearm stolen from his unlocked truck.
On February 11, 2020, Travis called 9-1-1 to report a slender 6-foot-tall
black man with short hair wearing red shorts and a white shirt who was
trespassing on the site of a house under construction. Travis was
breathing heavily on the call, and said, "I've never seen this guy before
in the neighborhood." The dispatcher asked whether Travis was OK, and he
said, "Yeah, it just startled me. When I turned around and saw him and
backed up, he reached into his pocket and ran into the house. So I don't
know if he's armed or not. But he looked like he was acting like he was."
"We've been having a lot of burglaries and break-ins around here lately,"
Travis said on the call. He told the dispatcher that he was out in his
truck and that as many as four neighbors were out looking for the man. His
father Gregory was one of the people out searching that night, and Gregory
and at least one other neighbor were armed. Police responded and searched
the house along with a neighbor, but found no one. However, surveillance
video from that evening showed a man who reportedly looked like Arbery,
who briefly walked in and out of the home under construction, without
That is a lot of crime and a lot of suspicious activity in a small area
in a short amount of time.

They should have left Barnhill handle it, he had it wrapped up as soon
as he got the autopsy report. Obviously he couldn`t complete his report
until he has the autopsy. If you want to say there was foot dragging you`d
have to find out why it took over 40 days for the DA to get the autopsy
