Social Media Buzz: #JusticeForAhmaudArbery

Video leaked to the public this week of the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia has sparked a widespread call for justice on social media. The unarmed black man was killed by a former officer, Gregory McMichael, and his son, Travis McMichael, back in February while Arbery was out jogging.

The McMichaels said they suspected Arbery of burglary. They were arrested last night.
