The country may be solely focused on getting justice for the murder of George Floyd at the hands of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin—but the Ahmaud Arbery case is also still going on. In a recent development in court, it was revealed that Travis McMichael allegedly stood over Ahmaud Arbery’s body and yelled “f**king n***er.”
In recent court proceedings, it was revealed that father and son Gregory McMichael and Travis McMichael were in such a rush to go after Ahmaud Arbery back in February while he was out jogging in Brunswick, Georgia, that Gregory allegedly rode in the pickup truck while sitting on a child’s car seat because he couldn’t be bothered to move it for fear that he wouldn’t catch Arbery in time.

A probable cause hearing is currently being held for the men who are accused of killing #AhmaudArbery earlier this year. Civil Rights attorney #SLeeMerritt is in the courtroom and providing updates. According to a testimony from #WilliamBryan, #TravisMcMichael reportedly called Ahmaud a f**king n*gger as he stood over his body. #GregMcMichael told authorities that he did not know Ahmaud but claims he knew he was a criminal.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents also testified in court that Travis McMichael used the N-word several times when referring to Arbery—while he was standing over his dead body. Following Ahmaud Arbery’s murder, Gregory McMichael allegedly posted about the shooting on Facebook, and also revealed someone else in the family posted a crime scene photo.
Meanwhile, the judge in the case ruled that there is enough evidence to try all three suspects, Gregory McMichael, his son Travis McMichael and William Bryan, who shot the video of the murder and allegedly pinned Arbery with his vehicle so he couldn’t escape.
