Fox News’ Charles Payne was wrapping up his segment with Trump Advisor Pastor Darrell Scott when he reported that the special prosecutor in the Ahmaud Arbery case testified that the killer used a racial slur over the young man’s dead body.
Now that’s a revelation.
Richard Dial, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent and the lead investigator on the Arbery case, offered new details about the chase leading up to the murder, and said Bryan told investigators he heard Travis call Arbery a racial slur as he laid on the ground after the shooting and before police arrived.
The McMichaels appeared in court from jail via video conferencing while Bryan waived his right. The hearing continued Thursday afternoon; it’s unclear when a bond hearing will be set.
Dial testified that Bryan first mentioned the slur in a May 13 interview with GBI, and to Dial’s knowledge, Bryan had not mentioned it during previous interviews.
Dial alleges that McMichael used the same slur “numerous times” on social media and in messages. Body camera footage showed a Confederate flag sticker on the toolbox of his truck, Dial said.
On Thursday, Dial described what happened leading up to the shooting, saying that when Bryan first saw the McMichaels pursuing the jogger, he yelled “Do you got him?” and then joined the chase. Dial said none of them had called 911 at this point.
Bryan turning state witness, is going to seal the case against the McMichaels.
The McMichaels were taken into custody on May 7 by federal officials and booked in the Glynn County Jail.
Sad to say, the arrests came more than two months after the shooting. Both father and son were charged with felony murder and aggravated assault. The third man, Bryan was arrested and charged with felony murder and attempted false imprisonment.
Pastor Darrell Scott summed it up perfectly when speaking about those on social media speaking before the facts came out in the case and using the man’s past to destroy his death.
