Protests powered by social media have forced the authorities to arrest two of the three men involved in the murder of the 25-year-old man Ahmaud Arbery.
Full story below…
The individual who recorded the murder is a man whose legal representatives handed the video to law enforcement to support the claim that Gregory and Travis McMichael only shot Ahmaud in an act of self-defence.
Unfortunately for them, his plan backfired as video revealed that the father and son duo were the aggressors and were hunting the innocent man as he jogged through his neighbourhood.
Authorities chose not to arrest the suspects after seeing the video but have now been forced to after protests powered by social media users pushed the story into the global news cycle.
The news report below may feature the moment Ahmaud was murdered.
There are now calls for the man who recorded the lynching to be slapped with the heavy hand of justice.
