Speakers at a rally for Ahmaud Arbery say justice for the black man killed during a pursuit by a white man and his son in Georgia isn't just prison time for his killers. They say justice also requires changes in a local justice system that never charged them with a crime. Arbery was killed Feb. 23 just outside of Brunswick. Hundreds of people came to the Glynn County courthouse on Saturday demanding accountability for a case in which charges weren’t filed until state officials stepped in. Gregory McMichael said he and his son pursued Arbery because they believed he was responsible for recent break-ins in the neighborhood.
