An attorney for civil rights Benjamin Crump issued a statement after a jury found three white men responsible for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery guilty of many crimes, including criminal murder.

“Guilty. Guilty. Guilty,” Crump, the lawyer representing Arbery’s family, told reporters (Nov. 24). Ahmaud’s killers have finally been brought to justice after nearly two years of suffering, pain, and questions about their accountability. Ahmaud will never be resurrected, but at least his family will be able to rest assured he was murdered by men who will remain behind bars and have no way to harm innocent people in the future. “Today is not a day of celebration, but rather one of reflection.”

Crump added: “This case has all the makings of being started and concluded.”.It was captured on camera how Ahmaud Arbery was stalked and lynched. We however wondered if justice would ever be served due to our systems’ inherent holes, weaknesses, and biases. Though we’ve made progress today, we’re still a long way away from completion. Thanks to your support, America. We cannot remain silent now. Keep marching. Keep fighting for the truth. Never let Ahmaud down.”

Three individuals charged in Arbery’s murder have been convicted on Wednesday (November 24): Gregory McMichael, his son Travis McMichael, and their neighbour William “Roddie” Bryan. As the 25-year-old ran through a Georgia neighbourhood in February, three guys pursued, surrounded, and killed him.

On four counts of felony murder, on two counts of aggravated assault, on two counts of false imprisonment, and on two counts of criminal attempt to commit a felony, Gregory was convicted. As a result of the trial, Travis was found guilty of two counts of felony battery, one count of unlawful imprisonment, one count of malicious murder, four counts of criminal homicide, and one count of criminal attempted felony. As a result of his conviction, Bryan was charged with three counts of felony murder, one count of severe assault, one count of wrongful imprisonment, and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony.
