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.
