Just today, November 24th, 2021 twelve jurors in Georgia found Gregory and Travis McMichael and Roddie Bryan guilty of the various nine total charges each for the event that ended in the death of Ahmaud Arbery.
“Jurors found Travis McMichael guilty of malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony.
“The jury also found Greg McMichael guilty of four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony. Jurors found him not guilty on charges of malice murder.
“Finally, the jury found the McMichaels’ neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan, guilty of felony murder and aggravated assault.”
Below is a breakdown of which counts each individual was found guilty of and which they were not found guilty of.
BREAKING: All three men found guilty of murder in trial over death of Ahmaud Arbery.

Gregory and Travis McMichael (father and son), joined and filmed by Roddie Bryan, were the ones who chased down Ahmaud Arbery in a truck, with a shotgun on February 23rd, 2021. The three men were attempting a “citizen’s arrest” on Arbery, believing he fit the description of a man who’d been breaking and entering in the neighborhood. They based this evidence off the fact he’d been inside a home that was still under construction. When Ahmaud ran, he was nearly run over by the McMichael’s truck, before he tried to wrestle the gun away from Travis McMichael before being shot during the struggle.
The case, which was brought often in comparison to the Kyle Rittenhouse trial was nothing like the other. As point out in my article for the Liberty Leader, Rittenhouse was running away from and being chased be his aggressors, whereas the McMichaels and Bryan were the ones chasing down an unarmed man with their vehicles, at least two of them armed with weapons of their own.
The reactions to the guilty verdict are mostly being pumped out by Leftists and mainstream media. It’s almost as if they feel somewhat vindicated over the Rittenhouse verdict, despite the fact that justice was carried out in both instances. While some conservatives felt the Ahmaud Arbery shooting wasn’t murder, most were just as angered by the video when it was leaked two months after the fact.
Many readers of more mainstream or politically left leaning corporations seem almost desperate to say that conservatives are angry over the verdict, when, if you read the comments, nothing could be further from the truth. (As is often the case with people who are more obsessed with race than they are with knowing all of the facts of a case.)
One twitter user insists Fox viewers are, or should be, angry to learn the verdict. This person seems to forget that conservatives don’t usually burn cities and stores down even if they are angry about something.
Your readers are pissed huh?

Once again, people attacking Fox and their viewers. If we can’t assume someone’s “gender identity”, why do we get to assume anything else about them?
Fox viewers not gonna like that

But don’t worry, there were plenty of people calling out their relief on the conservative side of things, reminding the world we don’t just side with people based on the color of their skin.
I agree, I thought this “citizens arrest” thing and overcharging may lead to another mess. Prosecutors must have known their case and made it well. That video was just horrifying.

It’s the right verdict. Jury of your peers does justice.

Kyle Rittenhouse is free and the men who killed Ahmaud Arbery are going to prison.
Our system works and the outcomes of these two trials prove that fact.
