Ahmaud Arbery trial verdict live – Mom breaks silence about jogging son after Travis McMichael & William Bryan GUILTY

VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS ON AHMAUD ARBERY VERDICT: ‘WE FEEL THE WEIGHT OF GRIEF’

“Today, the jury rendered its verdicts and the three defendants were found guilty of murdering Ahmaud Arbery,” Vice President Kamala Harris said in a statement.

“Still, we feel the weight of grief. Ahmaud Arbery should be alive, and nothing can take away the pain that his mother Wanda Cooper-Jones, his father Marcus Arbery, and the entire Arbery family and community feel today. I share in that pain.”

“These verdicts send an important message, but the fact remains that we still have work to do,” Vice President Harris added.

“The defense counsel chose to set a tone that cast the attendance of ministers at the trial as intimidation and dehumanized a young Black man with racist tropes. The jury arrived at its verdicts despite these tactics.”

“Ahmaud Arbery was a son. He was a brother. He was a friend. His life had meaning,” she continued.

“We will not forget him. We honor him best by continuing the fight for justice.”
