(GLYNN COUNTY, Ga) Ahmaud Arbery trial
« We don’t want any more Black pastors coming in here, » the lawyer said.
An attorney for one of the 3 white men accused of murder in the death of Ahmaud Arbery objected to the presence of Rev. Al Sharpton in the courtroom. « We don’t want any more Black pastors coming in here, » the lawyer said.
Sharpton was in the courtroom on Wednesday, when he was sitting with the family of Arbery. After Gough’s comments, Sharpton told news outlet TMZ that the lawyer’s comments were « an arrogant display of insensitivity. »
« Now (you) tell them they can’t have the ministers of their choice to sit there and console them, while they are sitting there looking at those who murdered their son? » he said. « Now you have not only taken their son, you want to take those who console them. »
« I think that he was very telling in his specifying ‘Black pastors,' » Rev. Sharpton says. « For him to say that in a court of law, given this kind of case, is startling, but also revealing. »
