Commissioner Says DA Stopped Police From Arresting Ahmaud Arbery’s Killers to Protect Her Friend

Two Glynn County county commissioners claimed that the local district attorney stopped police from making arrests immediately after the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery. One of the commissioners accused the DA of blocking the arrest to protect her friend Gregory McMichael.

According to a Glynn County Commissioner Peter Murphy, police at the scene of the shooting believed they had probable cause to make arrests but they were told to stand down by the DA’s office.

“They spoke to an assistant, who relayed their request to [Glynn County District Attorney] Jackie Johnson,” Murphy told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“They were told not to make the arrest.”

“She shut them down to protect her friend McMichael,” a second county commissioner, Allen Booker, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The “McMichael” Booker was referring to is Gregory McMichael. Gregory is a former cop who had worked as an investigator for the DA’s office. He had helped prosecute Arbery in the past, when he was in high school, on a weapons charge.

Gregory and his son, Travis are the two men who chased down and shot Ahmaud Arbery on Feb. 23.

Johnson recused herself from the case entirely a few days after the shooting, Booker said.

She should be held accountable as well as the man that filmed the execution… Praying that this family gets justice that is due them. Unfortunately nothing will bring their son back. The Father and Son should also be claimed with a hate crime. 😭🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

This is like the Jessie Smollett case without a death occurring. Special people get special treatment and it’s not right. White, black or purple – if you do the crime, you should do the time.
