guilty, guilty, guilty, GUILTY

The men convicted of killing Ahmaud Arbery are not the only ones facing prison time for…murder. Former Georgia District Attorney Jackie Johnson was arrested for her role in delaying justice for the Black man, who was chased and killed while running through a mostly white neighborhood near Brunswick, Georgia.

According to a grand jury indictment, Johnson violated her oath by “showing favor and affection” to Gregory McMichael and “failing to treat Arbery and his family fairly and with dignity.” It also said she obstructed police by “directing that Travis McMichael should not be placed under arrest.” Johnson also lost her reelection bid last November because of the Arbery case.

It took more than two months after Arbery’s killing for arrests to be made. His family and supporters have called for Johnson to be penalized for what she did.

Georgia appears to be becoming a state with political folks noticing that “injustice” really is a different word from “justice”.
