VIDEO: Mob Occupies the Streets of Georgia Following Media Firestorm Surrounding Shooting
A mob of activists reportedly occupied the streets of Georgia outside of the home of 64-year-old Gregory McMichael, who was recently apprehended as a suspect in the shooting death of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery along with his 34-year-old son, Travis McMichael.
Anti-white activist and black supremacy supporter Tariq Nasheed gleefully broadcast the news in a tweet:

Perhaps themob was acting on the orders of infamous fraudster Shaun King, who posted a veiled threat toward the McMichaels on Facebook that has since been deleted:
Big League Politics reported the news after the story broke and started a national outrage based around the racism of the supposed incident:
A Georgia father and son have been arrested after the publication of a video depicting a shooting the two men were involved in. Gregory and Travis McMichael were arrested at their home in Brunswick, Georgia on Friday night.
The McMichaels had been involved in the shooting of an area man named Ahmaud Arbery in February, video of which was recently published and inspired demands for the men’s arrest. The McMichaels confronted Arbery in their neighborhood on the basis of several burglaries that had occurred in the area. During an interaction in which the armed men attempted to perform a citizens’ arrest on Arbery, an altercation ensued in which Arbery was shot and killed.
The video of the incident only became public earlier this week, and depicts a confrontation in detail. The McMichaels had been initially cleared of criminal repercussions by a Glynn County prosecutor, who argued the men were engaging in a legal citizens’ arrest of a criminal suspect. Critics of the McMichaels have accused them of reckless and belligerent vigilantism, accosting a jogger who was unarmed in their neighborhood with a shotgun and a .357 revolver.
Graphic video of the incident can be seen here.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation began its own investigation into the incident following the publication of the video on Tuesday, which contrasted with alleged original police claims that Arbery had been shot and killed inside a residence during an attempted burglary.
While the initial video shocked the nation, surveillance footage from households in the neighborhood in which Arbery was shot shows a figure fitting his description loitering and trespassing on various occasions.
Footage has surfaced going back to October 2019 showing an individual believed to be Arbery rummaging through homes at the dead of night:
