Trying to besmirch his memory

What is the reason for the release of new video that shows Ahmaud Arbery at construction site just before death?

I have some questions, Is this “News” an attempted justification for his death? Is there any visible “No Trespassing” signs posted? Does Ahmaud Arbery pick up anything and carry it off the site or just look around?

Do you think he might have been interested in the construction industry or maybe looking for an idea to employ on a project that he might have been thinking about? Was there any activity on this site to show that other people also did the same thing as Mr. Arbery on previous occasions that would suggest that his visit to the site was not out of the ordinary?

You see there are a thousand reasons why Mr. Arbery might have just stopped to survey the site, but the most obvious reason in my opinion is based on living in America all my life with Paper Sack Brown skin, and it is my opinion that this video is meant to cast doubt on Mr. Arbery’s motives and justify his death by the shooters sympathizers and created “Reasonable Doubt” related to the murderers.

Having lived in the South, it’s easy to see why this case is two and a half months late coming to light. Why? Because all of the players in this southern justice systems region have a connection with each other, the DA’s office, the murderers, the police, etc.

And the benefit of the doubt went to who? The murderers. Why? They had a sense of entitlement.

Had they thought Mr. Arbery was a suspect there are a thousand legal methods they could have employed to reasonably investigate their suspicions. But stopping him as a “citizens arrest” the based on the premise he “might” be a burglar is clearly not a justifiable method, especially due to the fact the he was 1. unarmed and 2. No evidence of contraband from a burglary.

Mr Ahmaud Arbery’s civil rights were violated and his murder was premeditated. I rest my case.
