Joe Biden says black jogger Ahmaud Arbery was ‘killed in cold blood’

Joe Biden is demanding justice for the unarmed black jogger who was shot to death by a group of white men in Georgia — calling it a cold-blooded “murder.”

“The video is clear: Ahmaud Arbery was killed in cold blood,” the presidential hopeful insisted of the 25-year-old jogger’s shocking caught-on-camera shooting.

“My heart goes out to his family, who deserve justice and deserve it now,” Biden wrote on Twitter late Tuesday.

“It is time for a swift, full, and transparent investigation into his murder.”

Arbery’s death in Brunswick in Feb. 25 sparked outrage this week after footage of the shooting was released.

A grand jury is set to hear evidence and weigh charges against father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael, who reportedly said they were looking for a burglar when they saw Arbery running.

“These men were vigilantes, they were a posse and they performed a modern lynching in the middle of the day,” insisted S. Lee Merritt, an attorney for Arbery’s family.
