Bodycam Footage Shows Police Did Not Immediately Assist Ahmaud Arbery as He Lay on Ground Dying

HeadlineDec 21, 2020

In Georgia, new bodycam footage from the minutes after three white men murdered Ahmaud Arbery while he was out jogging show Arbery was still alive when police arrived at the scene, but officers did not immediately help him. They also declined to cuff Travis McMichael even though he admitted to shooting Arbery. Lee Merritt, a lawyer for Arbery’s family, said of the recently released videos, “There has not been a Black murder suspect in history who got the deference that these men received.”
