Re: Jody David Armour

Jody Armour was interviewed about the verdict in the Ahmaud Arbery case. “It's only happenstantial that Arbery’s video got out and it became part of a movement, that we are here to be thankful that the justice process was vindicated in this case," he said. "But it could very easily have gone another way. And that's something for us to pause on and not become too triumphalist when you have a verdict like this.”
