    It's not. The existing citizens arrest law had clear parameters for when and how a citizens arrest could occur. None of them were met in this case.

    Arguably the dumbest post I've read on Sherdog.

    Impressive!

    Those Hillbilly's chased him through the street in trucks.

    Next time you go to the shop, that could easily be you if you wear the wrong hoody or pants and they have footage from another day that looks like you...
    I would have said jogging, but I don't know if you jog.

    Well.....The law sure as shit matters a lot right now. I guess we are going to find out if it's legal in Georgia for people to arm themselves, get in a truck, chase down and threaten to kill an unarmed person on foot who they did not see doing a damned thing.

    It's easy to call Arberys choices stupid with hindsight. But you should at least take an objective look at how well stopping and complying with armed white men running them down has worked historically for unarmed black men.

    Here is what concerns me the most. If our justice system can't give Arbery and his family justice in this situation, there will be millions of black Georgians and Americans convinced that the only way to get justice is to take it, since it isn't given. And when justice is taken by individuals and groups, society loses it's say and sway over what is fair and reasonable.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I fear that if sufficient justice is not given here, the justice taken will not be fair and reasonable.

    Tell ya what, since you are so sure of your position, if Arbery's killers are acquitted, spend the next weekend in Atlanta and comply with any instruction you get from armed assailants. Let me know how it works out for you.

    All three are facing a minimum sentence of life in prison. The only thing in question is will they be eligible for parole and even if they are, it'll be 30 years before they're up for it.

    Might rinse the taste of the Rittenhouse verdict out of mouths at the Thanksgiving table.

    It really has, in terms of legal verdicts.

    He was tresspassing in a house that was not his. Instead of sprinting out of the house, and out of the neighborhood, he is morally obligated to stop and explain why he was in the house in their neighborhood.

    I doubt he has to worry.

    He seems like somebody that is probably related to everyone else in his little town that he's never left... if you know what i mean.


    Spoiler: He's probably a hillbilly inbred.

    No he isn't.


    However, the white trash in this scenario ARE morally obligated to not run people down on the street and shoot him with a shotgun.

    Unfortunately for you (and fortunately for me) that line of thinking has already been legally debunked.

    The state of Georgia has clearly and emphatically stated that civilized men have a moral obligation not to jump to the worst possible conclusion and grab your gun and accost your fellow man whom you have not seen commit a crime.

    Let this be a lesson to all the other Hillbilly Judge Dreads out there who haven't been been able to get this through their thick skulls somehow.

    No, he really wasn't. The law is what we go by, because people's subjective opinions on morals are just that.

    Your moral code is so antithetical to me that I won't bother addressing that comment. But he sure as shit is not legally obligated to stop and explain himself to armed men chasing him in trucks.
