federal hate crimes
One of the men convicted of murdering Ahmaud Arbery is attempting to throw his two co-defendants under the bus, including his own son, by painting them as anti-Black racists in a desperate attempt to be acquitted in the federal hate crime trial that resulted in three guilty verdicts.
While the hate crime convictions for Gregory and Travis McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan may help Ahmaud Arbery's loved ones inch closer to closure, civil rights leaders are cautioning against confusing the verdicts for true justice.
Senior U.S. District Judge Hayden Head of the Southern District of Texas, condemned the men for the brutal attack, saying they "abandoned their humanity to the viciousness of animals."
