In the verdict in the second high-profile court case with a strong racial aspect in just five days, a jury today found three white men, Gregory McMichael, Travis McMichael, and William "Roddie" Bryan, guilty in the murder of Ahmaud Arbery. Arbery was jogging in a residential neighborhood in Brunswick, Georgia in late February of 2020 when the three men chased the young black man in their vehicles. Suspecting Arbery was a burglar, Travis McMichael shot and killed Arbery with a shotgun during a scuffle. On this episode, Jessica and Joe break down the 27 charges against the men, how and why the case and the verdict were different from the outcome in last week's Rittenhouse trial, the selection of an almost all-white jury for the murder of a black man in a mostly-white county, and why 75 days elapsed between Arbery's murder and the arrest of the three men.
