A very disturbing video of an unarmed black man jogging outside of Brunswick, Georgia, and getting fatally shot/attacked by two white men is sparking outrage.

The horrible attack happened to 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery back in February, but the video was released Tuesday (May 5). People are questioning why the two men who attacked Arbery while he was jogging, minding his business haven’t been prosecuted.

The two men responsible are Gregory McMichael, a former police officer, and his son, Travis. In the graphic video, captured by an unidentified person, you can see the McMichael’s interrupt Arbery’s jog, approaching him in their pickup truck and begin to intimidate and attack unarmed Arbery. As Arbery attempts to get away, a gunshot is fired. Then Arbery is seen fighting for his life with while the McMichael’s hold a long gun and fire two more shots before Arbery stumbles and dies in cold blood.

The footage’ calls for a demand of justice from activists like Shaun King.calling it the worst he’s ever seen!

On mainstream television, they never give us a chance to tell our story – of our pain, of our happiness, of our joy, of our anger. In my exclusive interview with Wanda Cooper, the mother of Ahmaud Arbery, I wanted to do something that I learned from Amadou Diallo's mother, Kadiatou. She taught me that while the world knew Amadou through the lens of his murder by the NYPD in 1999, it was only a tiny speck of what she knew and loved about him. I wanted to start out my interview with Ahmaud's mother by helping us all get to know who he was – to her. He was her baby boy – born on Mother's Day – which is this weekend. Please follow @GrassrootsLaw. We're officially launching this week and have taken on this case.
