One of the attorneys representing Ahmaud Arbery’s family says a new video reveals more about the entangled relationship between the Glynn County Police Department, the suspects and neighbors who live in the subdivision where Arbery was shot and killed.

“It clearly demonstrates that this was an organized effort by many people in that community that was condoned by the police and, in many ways, encouraged when put in context with the text message,” said national civil rights and personal injury attorney Benjamin Crump.

The video montage — created using security footage, cellphone video and 911 calls — was produced by the New York Times. The video suggests that on Feb. 23, Gregory and Travis McMichael chased Arbery for more than four minutes before killing him.

On Wednesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Crump shared his thoughts on the video and the latest developments in the case.
