Nothing can bring Mr. Arbery back to his family and community, but the verdict ensures that those who committed this terrible crime will be punished. While the guilty verdicts reflect that our judicial system is doing its job, that alone is not enough. Instead, we must renew our efforts to build a future of unity and mutual strength where no one fears violence because of the color of their skin.

The prosecutor in this case should Awards received. ” – Joy Reid
