    Arbery's mother, told CNN on Sunday that when police notified her of her son's death, she was told her son was involved in a burglary and that there was a confrontation between her son and the homeowner and a struggle over a gun.

    If the police have already decided the facts of the case, I don't have much hope that justice will be served. Given that there was no burglary, the statement doesn't even make sense. I know the perps claimed that the victim looked like someone suspected of being involved with some unnamed earlier break-ins, but shooting a person because they look like someone who hasn't actually been convicted of doing anything wrong is insane. The fact that the police repeated that statement to the victim's family shows their own prejudices. I can only hope the grand jury will be more level-headed, but having lived in Georgia and having had jury duty there, I'd say that's unlikely.
