The only reason the video of Ahmaud Arbery's murder was released is because the GBI leaked it. Glynn County police tried their hardesr to cover up Arbery's murder — the DOJ should launch a criminal investigation into @Glynn_Police
Former Georgia Glynn County District Attorney #JackieJohnson should be next to head to prison for trying to protect the defendants and bury the case. #AhmaudArbery #EqualRights #Justice #FreshVoices https://t.co/u1fUQ8WttM
A jury delivered guilty verdicts on murder charges against three White men who chased and shot Ahmaud Arbery as the 25-year-old Black man jogged last year through their Glynn County, Georgia, neighborhood.
It is worth remembering: Two prosecutors initially instructed Glynn County police not to make arrests in the case, but about two months after the shooting, Bryan's video of the chase and killing was made public, sparking nationwide outcry.
A crowd is cheering and chanting outside Glynn County court house in support of #AhmaudArbery
I can hear
“we got justice” being chanted after the multiple guilty verdicts reached by a jury here
The thing that stands out to me the most with today’s verdict is that the original DA in Glynn County was not even going to charge them. It took 6 months, a leaked video, public outcry, and a full throttle social justice movement for us to get here today.
BLM Protesters were seen stomping on a confederate flag outside of the Brunswick Glynn County Courthouse where the Ahmaud Arbery case was held.
Now just imagine if someone was stomping on a BLM Flag!
Some people asked whether or not a jury in a rural county in southern Georgia could deliver a just verdict in a racially charged killing of a black man.
And the people of Glynn County just answered. Yes.
The majority of people, wherever you go, are decent.
Remember that time when Former Georgia Glynn County District Attorney Jackie Johnson tried to protect racist white men that murdered Ahmaud Arbery?
She tried her best to bury the case & not allow police to investigate. Let's send this racist straight to jail!
Former Glynn County District Attorney Jackie Johnson has been arrested and booked for violation of oath and obstruction in the Ahmaud Arbery murder case. https://t.co/2DNIX7vPKn
A crowd erupted into cheers outside the courthouse in Glynn County, Georgia where three men were convicted for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.

District Attorney Jackie Johnson told cops not to arrest them. District Attorney George Barnhill got the case & gave the Glynn County Police Department an initial opinion the day after Ahmaud Arbery's murder, saying he didn't see grounds for arrests. https://t.co/aAL1VHh1h3
In February 2020, Ahmaud Arbery was simply out on a jog near his home, when he was stalked, attacked, and shot to death by three men. Today, a jury in Glynn County, Georgia has just convicted all three men of murder.
They're escorting the murderers out of the Glynn County courthouse right now and putting them in black cars.
Two racists found guilty on most charges they chased and killed Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, as he jogged last year through their neighborhood in Glynn County, Georgia.
Idiot who videoed the attack also found guilty of most charges.
👏JUSTICE SERVED👏 https://t.co/3Ze4tHdpWq
Reminder: Jackie Johnson, the former district attorney in Glynn County, Georgia, is being facing an indictment for “showing favor and affection” to Gregory McMichael and telling police not to arrest his son, Travis McMichael in the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.
Glynn County, Georgia. Y’all did the right thing. Justice served for Ahmaud Arbery.
Bon, New York ReSister (#NY tough)@bfs2020
1/ Johnson is charged with obstruction of a police officer, which is a misdemeanor. On the day of the Feb. 23, 2020 shooting, the indictment says she allegedly instructed two Glynn County police officers not to arrest Travis McMichael, the man who shot and killed Arbery. 🤯👇🏻
NOW: Outside the Glynn County Courthouse. Chants of “Say his name: #AhmaudArbery.” Community members feeling vindicated after all three men are officially considered murderers under the law.
Sad when (2) two prosecutors initially instructed Glynn County police not to even make arrests in the case!
After a 13-day trial at the Glynn County courthouse in coastal Georgia, a disproportionately white jury found the three white men guilty of murder.
Thank God they moved this trial away from Glynn County to Cobb County (Metro Atlanta) lead prosecutor Linda Dunikoski, or there may have been a different outcome.

We have more live reports from the Glynn County Courthouse and legal breakdown of the charges at 5 and 6 on @cbs46
It was a thing of beauty ! In my humble view , she put on a remarkable Case ! TG , for this Special Prosecutor , one Linda Dunikoski !! Say her name !! ( from Cobb County GA ) assigned to Glynn County GA to adjudicate this Case ! Adjudicate wrong - doing - atrocities !
Remember, this prosecutor from Glynn County was ready to overlook, cover up the murder of Ahmaud Arbery. If not for the video, we wouldn’t have the guilty verdicts today. Our justice system still has work to do. #AhmaudArbery https://t.co/L68k9yQJIB
It’s stunning the Arbery case was prosecuted. The Glynn County Police Department was told by the Brunswick District Attorney to not make any arrests on numerous occasions as time passed in this case. It wasn’t until the videos were made public that the legal system took action.
Yes. And this judge was brought in from outside of Glynn county.
