Many of us continue to be completely disturbed with the details surrounding the senseless killing of Ahmaud Arbery, and many public figures have been using their platforms to call for justice when it comes to Ahmaud’s case.
On Sunday, Roc Nation released an open letter addressed to the elected officials in Georgia as they demanded that justice be served as they call for his killers to be convicted. In a letter, which has been signed by Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Alicia Keys, Yo Gotti, and others, it states, “By now we have all seen the crime’s disturbing video, so the facts that here are not in doubt. He was unarmed and innocent and the victim of a hate crime.”
The letter continues, “Which is why we call upon you today as officials of the great state of Georgia, and with the entire world watching, to ensure that fair trial is conducted, as that can only lead to the appropriate felony convictions of both McMichaels.”

As we previously reported, this unfortunate murder took place back in February, however, Gregory and Travis McMichael, the two men responsible for killing Ahmaud, did not get arrested until earlier this week.
The father and son duo killed Ahmaud while he was jogging in a neighborhood of Brunswick, Georgia. The killing was captured on video, and the man who shot the video of the murder says that he was only a witness to the crime and asked the Georgia Bureau of Investigations to clear his name.
