In February, a black man named Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed in Brunswick, Georgia. Cue the "this regularly happens to black men in America" hysteria.
Initial news reports described Arbery as jogging through a predominately white neighborhood when two armed white men, for reasons still under investigation, told police they thought Arbery was actually a criminal behind recent break-ins in the neighborhood.
Arbery, while jogging, stopped and spent several minutes at the construction site of an unfinished home. He resumed jogging, but two adult men, a father and his son, followed him in a truck. A confrontation between Arbery and one of the armed men left Arbery dead, shot three times.
One of the men involved in the shooting is an ex-cop and former investigator for the district attorney's office. Because of ties to one of the alleged shooters, two prosecutors recused themselves, allowing the case to drag on.
