“Once again, the justice system has failed the Black community. Over two months had passed before charges were brought against two men who gunned down in the street Ahmaud Arbery while he was jogging a few miles from his home,” said Christopher Bruce, political director of the ACLU of Georgia.  The actions that District Attorneys Johnson and Barnhill took in this murder case have shown them to be unfit to execute the duties of their office. The ACLU of GA stands w/Glynn County’s community leaders in calling for them to resign.”
