The Ahmaud Arbery Case, Black Lives Matter and the Criminal Justice System

An unarmed black jogger in his community,  gunned down by a white father and son.  It happened more than two months ago, but arrests in the killing of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery  were only made last week after video of the incident was leaked to the public.  This case is eerily similar to the killing of Trayvon Martin eight years ago.  We examine the latest in this case what it means for the current criminal justice climate.
