Jury Finds Ahmaud Arbery’s Three White Killers Guilty of Murder

HeadlineNov 29, 2021

In Georgia, a jury rendered guilty verdicts for the three white men who chased down and murdered the unarmed 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery on February 23, 2020, while he was out for a jog. Outside the Glynn County Courthouse, crowds erupted into cheers as the verdicts were announced Wednesday. This is Ahmaud Arbery’s mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones.

Wanda Cooper-Jones: “I never thought this day would come. But God is good. And I just want to tell everybody: Thank you. Thank you for those who marched, those who prayed, most of all the ones who prayed. Thank you, guys. Thank you. Now Quez — which you know him as Ahmaud, I know him as Quez — he will now rest in peace.”
