US court sentences Ahmaud Arbery killer to life in prison

quote:

8 Aug 2022
The Georgia man who fatally shot Ahmaud Arbery, whose killing in 2020 was among those that fuelled mass protests against racism and vigilantism in the United States, has been sentenced to life in prison by a federal court for committing hate crimes.

US District Judge Lisa Godbey Wood sentenced Travis McMichael, a 36-year-old white former US Coast Guard mechanic, in Brunswick, Georgia on Monday. McMichael had been convicted of murder in a state trial last year.


He and his co-defendants – his father, 66-year-old Gregory McMichael, and their neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan, 52 – were also found guilty of federal hate crime charges earlier this year.

Show trial.

He was already convicted of murder and given life.

This was the federals with their Racism Trial because the shooters were white and the victim was black.

I guess. It seems a bit unnecessarily redundant, though.

Does he get to choose between the state and federal pen?

Good frick those guys. I'll never fully buy the narrative he was just jogging in the sense of an athletic endeavor, but regardless, you can't do what they did.

I mean, I understand it exists. Practically speaking, it seems rather like a waste of resources in this instance.

Based on the national attention of their crimes that sentence will probably be served to completion sooner than these jack holes were counting on.

I believe I heard he will get sent to federal pen... which I want to say is "better" (using better in a relative term here) for him than being in state pen

He is a murderer, why is race important?

He's a white former mechanic, but the guys that robbed the liquor store last night are persons wearing clothes, one tall, one short.

Seems like a waste of resources. I doubt he will serve any more time than he already would have prior to this ruling.

If a white guy kills a black guy he gets convicted by both the state and feds with life sentences.

A black guy kills a white guy he doesn't get charged by the Feds.
