Washington, May 7, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) released the following statement on the murder of Ahmaud Arbery:

“Over the last few days, through video footage, we have collectively witnessed yet another murder of an unarmed black man fueled by racism. The cell phone footage of the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery would appear to present clear probable cause for first degree murder charges. Justice for Ahmaud requires a full investigation of this crime, beginning with the arrest of all assailants. Given the local response, the Department of Justice must immediately investigate this incident.”
