White defendant when photographing the death of Georgia, a black man used racist blemish, says investigator

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) – One of the white men accused of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia used a racist slur after shooting the unarmed black man and before police arrived on the scene, an investigative investigator told the United States. case a hearing on Thursday (June 4).

Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent Richard Dial quoted William “Roddie” Bryan, who said Travis McMichael blemished after shooting Ahmaud Arbery in February.

Bryan and McMichael are both defendants in the case.

“Mr. Bryan said that after the shooting took place before the police arrived, while Mr. Arbery was on the floor, he heard Travis McMichael say the statement: f *** ing n **** r,” said Dial in a testimony to the court.

The case caused a national outcry after the mobile video of the recording was leaked on social media on February 23.

Thursday’s hearing before a judge in Glynn County will be held to determine whether there is enough evidence to stand trial.

Protests were expected outside the courthouse after more than a week of demonstrations in the United States during the May 25 death in Minneapolis Police Department by George Floyd, also a black American. In that case, four officers have been charged.

As the first witness to the prosecution, Dial described how the three defendants – Bryan, Travis McMichael, and his father Gregory McMichael – chased Arbery into pickups and tried to catch him jogging around them.

“He just liked to run,” Dial said of Arbery, adding that friends confirmed that he had run regularly for sports.

Gregory McMichael, 64, and his 34-year-old son, Travis, have been charged with murder and serious assault.

Bryan, a neighbor of the McMichaels who made the mobile video, was charged with murder and attempted illegal detention and imprisonment.
