Georgia is marking the anniversary of the Ahmaud Arbery shooting. It was three years ago today that the 25-year-old Black man was running through a Glynn County neighborhood when he was killed by three white men who thought he was a burglar. All three were convicted of murder.
An event will be held in Atlanta today to remember him. One of the speakers will be author Alison Mariella Desir, who wrote the book “Running While Black.” A two-mile run will also take place in memory of Arbery.
Meanwhile, in Tennessee, while five Memphis officers accused in the murder of Tyre Nichols await a May court appearance, seven additional officers could face disciplinary action soon. Memphis Chief Legal Officer Jennifer Sink says three hearings have been completed and four are scheduled for this week. Once done, disciplinary action could include anything from a reprimand to termination. Sink says there are also four Memphis firefighters who are under investigation for violating policies.
