Black Lives Matter protesters shouted to Ahmed Arberry, “If there is no justice,” he told LBL that if the accused were not convicted, they would march peacefully.

“We want them to do the right thing,” said Michael Harris of North Carolina.

Travis McMichael, 35, his father, Greg McMichael, 65, and his neighbor William “Roddy” Bryan, 52, were charged with murder, aggravated assault and false imprisonment on Feb. 23, 2020, in the deadly firing of Arberry outside J Brunswick.

A group of Harris-led activists shouted Tuesday outside the Glenn County Courthouse:

“What do we need? Justice. When do we need it? Now. When we don’t have it, shut it down.”

Harris told LBL that “shut it down” does not mean they are planning to destroy property if the verdicts don’t go their way.

I will say it again so the news and these clowns don’t misunderstand what I say, ”Harris said.

“The community doesn’t get peace because their family doesn’t have peace,” Harris continued. “It doesn’t mean we do anything when we say it, you call it insane, right? So don’t twist our words … it means we march when we say there is no justice, no peace. From sunrise to sunset, we don’t get tired.”

Terrell Harris of Georgia, Travis and Greg McMichael, along with Bryan, pleaded guilty “across the board.”

Terrell Harris said: “They know what they are doing. They could go away at any time.

Michael Harris told LBL that if the verdict is not reached by Thanksgiving, he will remain in court through the holiday.

“His mother can’t spend Thanksgiving with her son. Why should I spend Thanksgiving with my family? It’s not my holiday. Pilgrims? What did I celebrate them with?” He said.
