'The Trayvon Hoax' Gets A Reboot With The Shooting Death Of Ahmaud Arbery

With remakes and reboots being all the rage, the media has deciding to launch their own reboot of "The Trayvon Hoax" in advance of the 2020 election.

All the same elements involved in the Trayvon Martin case are present in the Ahmaud Arbery case.

We have the same rush to judgement by our parasite class:

The same false racial oppression narrative:

The same media hyping the racial angle (which they always suppress when the races are reversed):

The same threats of murder/riots if the shooter was not indicted:

And as you can see in the header image, we've also seen the same use of childhood photos.

Despite the media's claims, video of the incident actually backs up the story that 34-year-old Travis McMichael and his 64-year-old father Greg McMichael -- a longtime police detective who retired last year -- told police after the shooting.

The McMichael's own attorney reportedly released the video.

The evidence backing their self-defense case is all detailed in a public letter from District Attorney George E. Barnhill, who has worked as a criminal prosecutor for 36 years.

Barnhill wrote:
The video made by William Bryan clearly shows the shooting in real time. From said video it appears Ahmaud Arbery was running along the right side of the McMichael truck then abruptly turns 90 degrees to the left and attacks Travis McMichael who was standing at the front left corner of the truck. A brief skirmish ensues in which it appear Arbery strikes McMichael and appears to grab the shotgun and pull it from McMichael. The shot is through Arbery's right hand palm which is consistent with him grabbing and pulling the shotgun at the barrel tip, the 2nd and 3rd wounds are consistent with the struggle for the shotgun as depicted in the video, the angle of the 2nd shot with the rear of the buttstock being pushed away and down from the fight are also consistent with the upward angle of blood plume shown in the video and that McMichael was attempting to push the gun away from Arbery while Arbery was pulling it toward himself. The 3rd shot too appears to be in a struggle over the gun. The angle of the shots and the video show this was from the beginning or almost immediately became-- a fight over the shotgun.

Given the fact Arbery initiated the fight, at the point Arbery grabbed the shotgun, under Georgia Law, McMichael was allowed to use deadly force to protect himself.

Just as importantly, while we know McMichael had his finger on the trigger, we do not know who caused the firings. Arbery would only had to pull the shotgun approximately 1/16th to 1/8th of one inch to fire weapon himself and in the height of an altercation this is entirely possible. Arbery's mental health records & prior convictions help explain his apparent aggressive nature and his possible thought pattern to attack an armed man.
Arbery in Dec 2013 was caught bringing a loaded gun to a high school he did not attend and ran from police when they tried to apprehend him.

His last name is misspelled in that report but was accurately spelled in this follow-up report on the case from The Brunswick News.

The New York Times reported that Arbery "was convicted of shoplifting and of violating probation in 2018."

The shoplifting conviction is relevant considering, according to the police report, "McMichael stated there have been several break-ins in the neighborhood and further the suspect was caught on surveillance video."

"In a recording of a 911 call, which appears to have been made moments before the chase began, a neighbor told a dispatcher that a black man was inside a house that was under construction on the McMichaels' block," The New York Times reported. "During the chase, the McMichaels yelled, 'Stop, stop, we want to talk to you,' according to Gregory McMichael's account in the police report."

Regardless of the specifics of this case, it's clear it only got the wealth of attention it has because the establishment thinks it advances their narrative.

There are tons of similar racially-charged cases where the races are reversed which happen every day.

Just yesterday, I covered the story of 59-year-old John Marvin Weed, an innocent man who was killed on video by two black teens at a fair in Frederick, Maryland that sucker punched him and then spit on him as he lay dying.

The case got nearly zero media coverage and was ignored by network news, which is the expected norm in cases like these.

The agenda here could not be any more transparent.

Just as we saw with The Trayvon Hoax, the media knows exactly what they're doing by playing up the racial angle.

We're even seeing the same cast of characters.

Incidentally, we're also seeing a repeat of the Covington Catholic hoax when it comes to the hacks of Conservatism, Inc. rushing to join the media's pile-on.

As I said in the past, the real lesson of Covington was that Conservatism, Inc. will always side with the liberal establishment over the base they claim to represent when it matters most.

Regardless, Gregory and Travis McMichael on Thursday were arrested and charged with murder and aggravated assault.

The case is reportedly going to be presented to a grand jury after the coronavirus lockdown ends.

District Attorney Barnhill did the "honorable" thing and recused himself from the case (which leftist DAs never, ever do).

When the case goes to trial, if these two are acquitted we may see a reboot of the riots in Baltimore and Ferguson.

UPDATE: Arbery's aunt admitted to The Daily Beast that he was caught on surveillance video trespassing into a man's home "just down the street from Travis McMichael's home" before the shooting:
What [Arbery] had done was visit the foundation of a home being built just down the street from Travis McMichael's home, a new structure whose owner, Larry English, told The Daily Beast he received a notification on his cell phone of someone on his property that day. He provided footage to The Daily Beast that Brooks, Arbery's aunt, identified as depicting her nephew.

But the family contends Arbery was just looking around the area, and that he was targeted at least partly because he was black [...]
English said someone stole $2,500 in fishing gear from his property earlier this year but he didn't report it to police.

It was also reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday that Greg McMichael, due to his prior police work, knew the victim and "helped with the previous prosecution of (Ahmaud) Arbery" for either shoplifting and violating parole in 2018 or bringing a loaded gun to a high school and running from police in 2013.

"This family are not strangers to the local criminal justice system," Barnhill wrote in his his letter of recusal to Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr. "From best we can tell, Ahmauds older brother has gone to prison in the past and is currently in the Glynn jail, without bond, awaiting new felony prosecution. It also appears a cousin has been prosecuted by DA Johnson's office."

UPDATE II: Here's video which appears to show Arbery entering the home of Larry English and fleeing after being spotted:

[Embed starts 13:30. Arbery exits the front door at 14:37. Video is clearly sped up at parts as can be seen in the timestamp.]

News4Jax received a short 7 second clip from inside English's home which appears to show Arbery scoping out the joint:

From News4Jax:
"We are indeed reviewing additional video footage and photographs as part of the active case. It is important to note that this footage was reviewed at the beginning of the GBI investigation and before the arrests of Gregory and Travis McMichael."

A statement from the attorneys representing Arbery's family reads in part:

"Our office has reviewed the surveillance video which appears to show a person, believed to be Ahmaud Arbery, entering a property under construction. The individual remains on the property for under 3 minutes before continuing to jog down the road. This video is consistent with the evidence already known to us."
UPDATE III: I analysed the first surveillance video in a new article, the details of which I'll share below.

Arbery can be seen walking down the street -- not jogging -- then stopping on homeowner Larry English's lawn and looking around. After seeing no one was in the area, he then trespassed into the house at around 2:09 p.m. on the timestamp, which is actually most likely around 1:08 p.m as police said the first neighbor to call 911 did so at 1:08 p.m. Arbery is seen exiting the building around 5 minutes later and took off running or "jogging" after 911 had been called on him (possibly by the onlooking man who is seen standing next to a tree across the street that appears to be holding a phone up to his left ear and likely would have been in Arbery's view).

The first 911 caller can be heard telling police about the trespassing incident and saying the suspect was "caught on camera a bunch before at night" and it's "kind of an ongoing thing out here."

He told the dispatcher in real time that he was witnessing the suspect leaving the house and "running down the street" (which suggests he was the onlooker seen on the video).

The second 911 caller, who reportedly made his call at 1:14 p.m., can be heard yelling at a man to "stop," which was presumably Arbery.
