The fate of three white men accused of killing Amhaud Arbery last year is now in the fate of the jurors; the legal wheels are in motion for Robert Aaron Long, the person behind this spring’s Atlanta-area spa shootings; and this Thanksgiving will be remembered as the year of high gas prices and low food supplies.
Attorneys in the Brunswick murder trail of Ahmaud Arbery’s accused killers present their final arguments; a new poll shows a potential toss-up in the runoff for Atlanta mayor; and two Democratic representatives but just one seat. Um.
