UNITED STATES – Three white Americans were found guilty on Wednesday, November 24 of the murder of the African-American jogger Ahmaud Arbery, whom they had prosecuted and then shot dead in February 2020 in the state of Georgia, following a trial marked by the issue of racism.

President Joe biden immediately greeted The verdict, while recognizing that “a lot of work” remained to be done before achieving equality.

Travis McMichael, 35 and the author of the fatal shots, his father Gregory McMichael, 65, and their neighbor William Bryan, 52, who participated in the chase, were on trial in Brunswick, in the southern state of the United States. United, following this tragedy that fueled the major anti-racist demonstrations in the summer of 2020 across the country.

The twelve jurors, including one black man, deliberated for more than eleven hours to reach this unanimous verdict. The announcement was greeted by protesters who chanted Ahmaud Arbery’s name outside the courthouse. In the room, a family member shouted for joy when Travis McMichael was convicted.

This verdict shows that “yes, black lives matter,” said African-American civil rights figure Pastor Al Sharpton in court.
