The viral video, shot by unarmed Georgia Jagger Ahmed Arberry, first leaked to the press at the request of his father for his murder – because he thought it would look good on him and his son.
Paradoxical shock – former policeman Gregory McMichael’s leaked video exposing the Aubrey shooting to the world, leading to father-son murder charges WSB-TV in Atlanta announced Friday.
The video shows McMichael standing in the back of a pickup truck while his son, Greg, fired at Jagger.
McMichael’s white, and Arberry black, still a former cop’s father, leaked the video to a radio station two months after the shooting because he thought it would alleviate racial tensions in the South Georgia community of Chatela Shores, WSBS. -TV Report.
The shocking plot twist was revealed Friday by Brunswick lawyer Alan Tucker, who had been informally consulting the suspects and was previously known as the source of the video.
Tucker told WSBS-TV that Greg McMichael’s idea was to leak a video shot by a father and son’s friend from the second vehicle.
Prosecutor Greg McMichael brought the video and others to his office for help with downloading, so it could be sent to WGIG, a local radio station in Brunswick.
Tucker also thought racial tensions would decrease if the video leaked.
“I don’t want the neighborhood to be a Ferguson,” Tucker told WSB-TV.
As it turned out, the easy-tension tactic was backed up by the monument.
The video sparked a national outcry both online and at rallies, and the father and son were arrested for the murder and aggravated assault charges after a lawsuit was filed.
