Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Medical Examiner Says Ahmaud Arbery Shot at Close Range as Prosecution Rests Case

HeadlineNov 17, 2021

The state of Georgia has rested its case in the trial of three white men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery, a Black jogger. On Tuesday, the medical examiner who performed the autopsy testified that Arbery died after being shot three times at close range — two of the bullets hit him, including one that tore a big hole in the center of his chest. The jury was shown graphic video of Arbery’s wounds and his blood-soaked white T-shirt. The defense is beginning its case today.
