Usa: African American runner killed, almost all white on the jury

ROME, 05 NOV – A jury made up of a single African American has settled in Georgia, where the trial for the death of Ahmaud Arbery, the 25-year-old killed last year while jogging, begins today. The BBC reports it. An anomaly that was highlighted by the judge who spoke of “intentional discrimination” in the composition of the jury and yet did not suspend the trial. Arbery was chased and shot dead in Brunswick, a town in Goergia. Former policeman Gregory McMichael, 64, his son Travis, 34, and their neighbor William Bryan were indicted for his death. Father and son have pleaded innocent by claiming to have mistaken Arbery for a thief. In the shock video shot by their neighbor with a smartphone, Gregory and Trevis are seen chasing the jogger armed with gun and rifle. And, according to what Bryan testified, they also insulted him with racist offenses before killing him. (HANDLE).
