Ahmaud Arbery killing being investigated as federal hate crime, attorney says

The FBI is probing the death of Ahmaud Arbery as a possible hate crime, the Arbery family’s attorney said, claiming that federal authorities had launched an inquiry into 2 district attorneys and the police department involved in the case. The attorney said federal investigators were looking into potential ’criminal and civil’ violations by 2 officials who later recused themselves from the case.

All things considered they're asking for too much. At worst this is manslaughter, and you can make a decent argument for that, but going after racially motivated premeditated murder is never going to stick because honestly I don't think that's what happened. Lots of stupid mistakes were made that day and it cost a man his life, which is always tragic, but there's a lot of moving parts to this.

It doesn't really matter at this point. I'm getting kind of tired of always seeing a prom graduation picture and being told "this was a good boy he was just exercising." At this point to take the side of the "jogger" is to advocate for lawlessness.

Considering how at least one police officer encouraged the vigilantee action, this was warranted. Also very good chance they police tried to sweep this under the rug to avoid any liabilities.

How!? That makes no sense when looking at the evidence. Yeah, those 2 should be charged with manslaughter at minimum. But nothing in the evidence suggests it's racially motivated or even premeditated.

They were stup1d to attempt to restrain him. They were even more stup1d using firearms. But the guy grabbed a shotgun and pulled the barrel towards himself. His act was the most stup1d and resulted in his death.

"Barnhill (the second attorney) recused himself, writing a letter explaining that he thought the McMichaels were justified in their attempts to hold Arbery until police arrived and their actions were 'perfectly legal.'"

We learned nothing from, hands up don't shoot. Bur it's an election year, and everyone is going with a narrative. Even still calling him a jogger.

LMFAO. I knew that would try some ridiculous sh!t like this. What an absolute mockery of justice. I can't wait for all the Karens to come out screaming when all the charges fail to get a conviction. Based on the evidence there was no crime committed let alone murder and adding a hate crime.... Now that is too damn funny.

The guy has a history of criminal behavior, and him being caught trying to do it again is now a hate crime? How low lady justice has fallen. I'm Asian and even I can say the brothers actions were justified. I would've done the same in my neighborhood. If this incident happened in a korea or china town, I assume the guy would've met the same fate.

No fact so far leads to a murder, regardless of motive. All shared facts and statements support reasonable actions, given stated impressions and a homicide as a result of self-defence. Everyone pandering to the race bait and allegations and claims without proof needs harsh legal punishment to deter this repetitive smearing. Standard of proof is not respected, so punishment is necessary to deter it.
