Georgia Denies Bond For Men Charged With Shooting Of Ahmaud Arbery

A Georgia judge denied bond Friday for the men who were charged for the fatal February shooting of Ahmaud Arbery. 

During their hearing, Judge Timothy Walmsley expressed concern about releasing the two from custody. “The video tells me there’s a significant risk and danger to the community,” he said, referring to a cell phone video of the event, according to ABC News. 

Prosecutors argued that the men acted as vigilantes and they were motivated by racism, while the defense attorneys for the McMichaels claimed there were no racist motives. They also assured the judge that the two would not be flight risks or pose any threat to the community, ABC News reported.
