Neighbor Convicted In Ahmaud Arbery Murder Will Seek New Trial, Says Attorney

An attorney for William “Roddie” Bryan — the neighbor who joined in the pursuit of Ahmaud Arbery before he was killed — said Wednesday afternoon that he will seek a new trial, following a jury’s decision to find his client guilty of felony murder.

“While we disagree with the verdict, we must respect it,” said attorney Kevin Gough, who represented Bryan in the case. According to The New York Times, Gough said that he plans to file the motion for the new trial next week.

A lawyer for Travis McMichael separately told reporters that the father and son “honestly believe what they were doing was the right thing to do” and plan to appeal the guilty verdict, according to The Times.

The move comes after Bryan was found guilty of felony murder, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment in the death of Arbery, a 25-year-old Georgia man who was killed last year. Bryan was one of the three men who pursued Arbery the day he was shot, and the video he recorded was key both to bringing the case to public attention and to the trial itself.The other two men, Gregory McMichael and Travis McMichael, who are father and son, were also found guilty of felony murder, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment on Wednesday. Travis, additionally, was found guilty of malice murder.
All three men face up to a maximum of life in prison.

Throughout the trial, Gough repeatedly sought mistrial motions, including this week as the jury was about to begin deliberating. On Monday, the attorney argued that the “figurative mob” had become a “literal mob” outside the courthouse. The judge denied the mistrial request, noting that security had not brought the circumstances outside the court to his attention.

Gough also drew attention to himself after he complained about the number of “black pastors” who were attending the trial — a comment that was, apparently, a response to Al Sharpton’s presence in the courtroom. The judge responded to Gough’s remarks by saying, “I can tell you this: I’m not going to start blanketly excluding members of the public from this courtroom.”

During closing arguments, Gough said that Bryan was armed “only with a cell phone,” as The Daily Wire previously reported. “Roddie Bryan was not aware of any intention, and could not be a party to the crime of malice murder, because he can’t intentionally help commit a crime he doesn’t know is underway,” said Gough.

Bryan, along with Gregory McMichael, was ultimately found guilty of felony murder but not malice murder.

After the judge read the verdict, Wanda Cooper-Jones, Arbery’s mother, said she “never” expected this day to come. “But God is good,” she said. “Thank you — thank you for those who marched, those who prayed.”

So, if I understand it, this guy merely recorded the incident on his phone?
Yes —And was convicted of capital murder and faces life imprisonment.

Because McMichael did something profoundly stupid.

The lesson in all of this is to STFU and never, ever trust blacks.

The Lesson of the McMichaels / Arbery Case

The McMichaels were so desperate to prove that they were not racist, they took the following outrageous steps (pieced together from Fox News and The New York Times) that led to their conviction: the FATHER, Gregory McMichael, leaked the video of the shooting. Up until that point, no case had been made, because the forensic analysis of the local District Attorney's office corroborated the son's account of the shooting. But local black activists within the community were claiming the McMichaels were racist. In an act of desperation not to be considered a racist, the father consulted a local black attorney who encouraged the elder McMichael to release the tape - making him believe it would exonerate his son and him. As soon as it was released, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) asked, through their attorney, if the video was real. They agreed it was. Immediately, the Atlanta-based, black dominated GBI arrested and charged the McMichaels with murder. The local black attorney, shortly thereafter, dropped them as a client.

Are you sure it was McMichael? Everything I read says it was Bryan who gave the video to his attorney.

Shocking video that showed two white men shooting unarmed black jogger Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia was leaked to the press by assailants' close friend who believed it would clear them of any crime.

Attorney Alan Tucker told Inside Edition Friday that he was responsible for releasing the footage, which showed his pals Gregory and Travis McMichael engaged in a fatal altercation with Arbery in Brunswick on February 23.

'I really thought releasing the video would put the truth out to the public,' Tucker stated.

'If he [Arbery] had just froze and hadn't done anything, then he wouldn't have been shot.'

However after the video was uploaded to the internet Tuesday it quickly went viral and sparked nationwide outrage. Presumptive Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden said it showed the McMichaels killing Aubrey 'in cold blood'.

The father and son were subsequently arrested Thursday, and have now been charged with murder and aggravated assault.


One of the men charged in the shooting death of South Georgia resident Ahmaud Arbery leaked the infamous video of the incident.

Gregory McMichael gave the video to Brunswick-area attorney Alan Tucker to stop rumors about the incident that were circulating through the community. Tucker told WSB-TV he helped McMichael deliver the footage to a radio station because he was afraid the shooting would cause tension between the races.

“I didn’t want the neighborhood to become a Ferguson,” said Tucker, who reportedly has known McMichael for roughly three decades in a professional capacity. He said he downloaded the video to a thumb drive before McMichael delivered the drive to the station; the exact date of that delivery isn’t known though the video went public in early May.

This is from Jared Taylor's great essay on the case:

In consultation with his lawyer, Gregory McMichael gave the video to a radio station in the hope that its release would put down rumors among blacks that his son had done something wrong. He thought it would settle any questions about what provoked the shooting!
