Travis McMichael, 34, Greg McMichael, 64, and William “Roddie” Bryan, Jr., 50, have been arrested in the murder that was caught on videotape of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery being chased down in a South Georgia neighborhood.
For months, no arrests had been made until an article written in the New York Times and the video was leaked by a lawyer who reportedly consulted with the suspects, incited a lot of attention and outrage from the public.
The third suspect, William “Roddie” Bryan, was the one reportedly recording the video and had made several public attempts to clear himself of any wrongdoing. He also was subsequently arrested for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.
Do you believe that Federal hate crime charges should be filed against the three suspects in light of this new information? Let us know in the comment section.
