Triple guilty murder for Ahmaud Arbery’s murder proves that ‘black lives matter’

Three white men found guilty of killing a black man while jogging in a Georgia neighborhood show “black lives matter,” activists said after the much-awaited verdict Wednesday.

But the triple guilty murder is not justice because Ahmaud Arbery is not alive, others said after the trial, which “indicates progress” in the fight for racial justice in America.

Arbery will “now rest in peace,” said Arbery’s mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones.

“I never saw this day back in 2020,” she said outside the courthouse. “I never thought this day would come, but God is good.”

Arbery will go down in history, Pastor Al Sharpton added.

“A jury of 11 whites and one black in the deep south stood up in the courtroom and said ‘black lives matter’,” he said, adding, “we have many more battles to fight, but this was an important battle Today.”

The murder at Arbery was recorded on video, a bomb proof for the prosecution in the case.

“But still, because of the deep cracks, flaws and biases in our systems, we were left to wonder if we would ever see justice,” said civil rights lawyer Ben Crump. “Today certainly indicates progress, but we are not close to the finish line.”

Arbery should be here today and celebrate the holiday with his mom and dad, said President Joe Biden.

“Nothing can bring Mr. Arbery back to his family and to his community, but the verdict ensures that those who committed this heinous crime will be punished,” Biden said.

“While the guilty verdicts reflect that our justice system is doing its job, that alone is not enough,” the president added. “Instead, we must commit to building a future of unity and common strength where no one fears violence because of their skin color.”

Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley wrote that Arbery “was hunted just to jog while he was black.”

“This verdict is not justice – justice would be Ahmaud alive today,” Pressley tweeted. “The verdict answers our demands for accountability, but our work for a fairer justice system continues. I pray that the Arbery family will find peace and healing.”
