DL’s featured guest on DL Uncut is attorney Lee Merritt, who is the family attorney for Ahmaud Arbery. Arbery is a young, 25 year old black man from Georgia who was killed in February after being chased by two armed white men. The armed white men told police he looked like a burglary suspect. Merritt shared the video Tuesday afternoon and said Arbery’s family was forced to watch for the first time online.
“Mr. Arbery had not committed any crime and there was no reason for these men to believe they had the right to stop him with weapons or to use deadly force in furtherance of their unlawful attempted stop,” Merritt wrote in a statement. “This is murder.”
