Live: Travis McMichael Gives Testimony In Ahmaud Arbery Shooting Trial | NBC News


  1. DOCUDRAMA on November 28, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Look at this devil, Satan all un his spirit. Tries to smile and deceive but the devil is active

  2. Fabulous Woman on November 28, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Irony being rich that these guys will spend the rest of their lives confined to a place where Black people know who they are and what they did. Also, I’m anxious to know if father and son will be separated during their incarceration like the Melendez brothers were as further punishment.

  3. Moe B on November 28, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    They literally got caught in lies.

  4. Bob Stephen on November 28, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Lynching still happening

  5. LadyBNaturalTv on November 28, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    This guy is clearly lying

  6. Kenneth Charles on November 28, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    The fact that the defendant is just making up situations as he goes along with the stupidity of his attorney by letting Travis McMichael take the stand and lie about a robbery attempt at an ATM machine as a result of hurricane Katrina, the bank was destroyed, but the ATM machine was working in Mississippi while he was in the coast guard ok next lie. Excellent dissuion for the Judge to allow this line of questioning by the defense attorney to open up all kinds of reasonable doubt about Travis McMichael and his father’s reasons for playing neighborhood drunk vigilantes. Investigating homeless people under a bridge. When you lie you have to remember every single lie you tell and that’s why Greg McMichael never took the witness stand, because he has more baggage going on then needs to come into this trial involving himself and the DAs office. Why would any competent lawyer, would co defendant three people charged with murder and one of them filmed his involvement in a murder .

  7. Mary Johnson on November 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    What’s his education level? He sounds very uneducated and full of himself with no clue about life nor reality he can’t intelligently express himself did he complete high school we know his father is slow couldn’t complete training to be an employee of the DA. Just a person clear of color and mad with people of color just sad

  8. Positive Manifestations on November 28, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    This is all so sad. Even though he was wrong, I believe that a prejudice attitude, behavior, and actions were instilled in Travis by his father. I feel it in my spirit. Travis seems like he is servile to his father. I would bet that his seemingly cold, stern father raised Travis in a household with all kinds of racial slurs and symbols representing so-called European superiority.

    I believe Travis’s ideas and beliefs are rooted socio-culture wise. This often happens in small, Southern towns. Travis doesn’t seem arrogant and smug at all. He appears to be struggling to keep his story believable but I think he is a product of a racially charged upbringing. If this is true, the result was poor Ahmad.

    People should not subject their children to their bias beliefs and values because the biases may ruin the lives of the children and the ones of many others.

  9. Hazybrneyes MD on November 28, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Lawyer: Ok, you felt threatened by him?
    A man minding his own business has no weapons, never said “confrontational things”, you chased him a quarter of a mile, had to “catch up” with him and you fools pull up on him from behind in a truck……yet he was the aggressor and you felt as though YOUR life was in danger? Okaaay, plz explain how that works? I’ll wait.

    This fool……his pauses when he speaks giving himself time to put together a lie that “makes sense”. Eventually he also hears himself talking and realizes how outlandish his “story” is. You can see his mind thinking thinking thinking!! A liar can’t remember his/her own lies. It’s a huge task and tedious task to do opposed telling the truth. If it’s the truth the details never change and you can tell the story over and over to numerous different ppl. Smh….🤬🤨

  10. hottopping49 on November 28, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    What in the delusion is this .

  11. The Anunakian on November 28, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Good thing these fellers twernt racist..

  12. D S on November 28, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Myself being a 24 year veteran officer (retired) can see clearly that this guy is a liar and has no clue as to even explain any trained techniques definitions or acronyms. HE FAILED TO EVEN RECEIVE, COMPLETE, AND OR PASS CERTIFICATION. He is a complete joke. You can clearly see he is guilty 😔 of the crime he is accused of. My prayers are with the victim and his family. I’m glad they got the justice they deserve.

  13. J T on November 28, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    All white people are racist

    Black Vigilantism must rise up! We need to fight back

  14. Brandy on November 28, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    2:26:57  Sad he said AA was already running away after the first encounter… He sealed his fate and the Lawyer tried to shut him up.. Whole testimony and tears is bull…Other stupid lawyer in her closing arguments talking about dirty Toe nails and "shush" dont say that" he went and found his neighbors to defend him.. Smh His butt is done now.. Guilty!! Stupid

  15. David Holburn on November 28, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    The irony of all this is the fact they think they didn’t do any wrong?

  16. Red Ciroc on November 28, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    I’m sure he had SLUGS in his shot gun as well smh

  17. wolke1955 on November 28, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Very nice to know now that those 3 murderers go in Prison for lifetime 🤓👌👏👏👏👏👏😂

  18. Trecia on November 28, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    He’s a liar and the truth not in him monster!

  19. Chris Swanson on November 28, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    So you weren’t the responding officer to an alleged crime and you put yourself in a deadly situation that you caused. How is what you are saying now makes any sense other than you failed training on all levels.

  20. Antonio Gibbs on November 28, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    this travis guy was looking for problems and he found them just not the kind he wanted.

  21. Fishing with Rod on November 28, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Man talks himself into a jail cell and throws key away. There, fixed the title for ya. 😂

  22. Roscoe Sweat on November 28, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Tha gods of law was with this woman they did not have a chance

  23. Mary Johnson on November 28, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Had you realized in advance that you were just plain stupid maybe you wouldn’t be on trial now.

  24. Jacqueline Meine on November 28, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    This guilty verdict was just as it should be because these men were the obviously the aggressors and totally in the wrong. They deserve imprisonment. These three men just don’t get it that their behavior was criminal. It is a shame for them to be the way they are and act the way they did. The world is safe from them now.

  25. My Cards Never Lie Tarot LLC on November 28, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    listening to his BS statement tells me one thing, you killed this man for no reason‼️ And i hope Travis knows his cellmate is patiently waiting for him. he will get the chance to learn what bullying someone and thinking your above the law feels like🤷🏽‍♀️

  26. Foo Barrel on November 28, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    This Ku Klux Karen is getting >100 years in prison … proper order.

  27. Fred van Benthem on November 28, 2021 at 9:32 pm


  28. evil dave on November 28, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    love this judge, seems like a pretty awesome guy 🙂

  29. camp Rich on November 28, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    This what I have to say as a black man.
    Do I think all these 3 men who caused Amhaud Arbery’s death deserve to be behind bars for life?
    My answer is YES
    2. Do I think if Amhaud Arbery were a white man that entered that unfinished house would be dead?
    My answer is NO
    3. Do I think if Travis and Gregory the father McMichaels and Ryan the neighbor were blacks and Amhaud Arbery were white, Do I think when the first police officer who came to the scene white Amhaud Arbery’s body was lying down on the streets black Travis and Gregory McMichaels and Black Ryan would have been arrested by that cop?
    My answer is YES.
    4. Do I think if Amhaud Arbery were to get a hold of that gun he would have gunned down Travis as self defense?
    And Amhaud Arbery would have gone to jail on a spot.
    5. Do I think if it was Travis McMichael who entered that house and Amhaud Arbery were living in that suburb community and Travis was gunned down by Amhaud Arbery and his father Gregory McMichael and neighbor Bryan Roddy Williams were blacks.
    Rolland Martin and the rest of the black community were going to view this act from a different perspective?
    Such as, Amhaud Arbery and his dad and neighbor killed Travis in self defense.
    The black communities were going to be anraged by supporting Amhaud Arbery, his dad and black neighbor Bryan Roddy Williams for them not to go to jail.
    It’s all about race and power
    and politics in this country. By no mean, I don’t think Amhaud Arbery is an innocent man himself becsuse I saw his previous interactions with previous police officers on YouTube. He really was not a reasonable young man himself. Do I think he deserved to be killed in such horrible condition?
    In my opinion, if he were to enter the McMichaels’ house and try to rob them, if they had a chance to pull the trigger on Amhaud Arbery, in my opinion, that action would have been justifiable. And I don’t think the McMichaels and Bryan Roddy Williams would have to face any jail time. But when you grabbed those weapons and start chasing down an individual who just happened to be running down the street just because he does not look like you and shot him to death. You deserve to be locked up for the rest of your life. Gregory McMichael the father, as an older man in that family has no morals nor common sense. He’s the one that caused his son and neighbor behind bars. You would think as someone who’s been serving his community, and have been around for a while would have used his common sense to tell his son chasing someone down the streets with weapons is not a brilliant idea. Instead let’s call the authorities. He chose to encourage his son and took the law into his own hands. As a result to that he thought they did nothing wrong by consoling his son, potting him on his shoulder. " you had no choice, you have nothing to be worried about. "
    In my opinion they need to rot in jail. Now they will be smarter in jail, will have to think twice and reflect on what they did that day they got together and gunned down Amhaud Arbery. My hope is that they never get to go home for being racist. Stay in jai like jail birds and be fed with jail food. Will never get to murder another person ever again because of the way they look.

  30. Shopping at the Big O on November 28, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    i like when linda say “ok”

  31. Red Ciroc on November 28, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    He’s going to prison ha ha

  32. Scott Cornelius on November 28, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Should have just called the cops.

  33. Skip Mars on November 28, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    You are not allowed to point a firearm at someone because you "think" they may have a weapon. All this running around the neighborhood Mr. Arbery didn’t pull a gun out.

  34. Elhanafy Monir on November 28, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.

    The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom;

    Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

    O ye who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah, and seek the way of approach unto Him, and strive in His way in order that ye may succeed.

    As for those who disbelieve, lo! if all that is in the earth were theirs, and as much again therewith, to ransom them from the doom on the Day of Resurrection, it would not be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful doom.

    They will wish to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth from it. Theirs will be a lasting doom.

    As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise.

    But whoso repenteth after his wrongdoing and amendeth, lo! Allah will relent toward him. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

    Knowest thou not that unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth ? He punisheth whom He will, and forgiveth whom He will. Allah is Able to do all things.

    O Messenger! Let not them grieve thee who vie one with another in the race to disbelief, of such as say with their mouths: "We believe," but their hearts believe not, and of the Jews: listeners for the sake of falsehood, listeners on behalf of other folk who come not unto thee, changing words from their context and saying: If this be given unto you, receive it, but if this be not given unto you, then beware! He whom Allah doometh unto sin, thou (by thine efforts) wilt avail him naught against Allah. Those are they for whom the Will of Allah is that He cleanse not their hearts. Theirs in the world will be ignominy, and in the Hereafter an awful doom;

    Listeners for the sake of falsehood! Greedy for illicit gain! If then they have recourse unto thee (Muhammad) judge between them or disclaim jurisdiction. If thou disclaimest jurisdiction, then they cannot harm thee at all. But if thou judgest, judge between them with equity. Lo! Allah loveth the equitable.

    How come they unto thee for judgment when they have the Torah, wherein Allah hath delivered judgment (for them) ? Yet even after that they turn away. Such (folk) are not believers.

    Lo! We did reveal the Torah, wherein is guidance and a light, by which the prophets who surrendered (unto Allah) judged the Jews, and the rabbis and the priests (judged) by such of Allah’s Scripture as they were bidden to observe, and thereunto were they witnesses. So fear not mankind, but fear Me. And My revelations for a little gain. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are disbelievers.

    And We prescribed for them therein: The life for the life, and the eye for the eye, and the nose for the nose, and the ear for the ear, and the tooth for the tooth, and for wounds retaliation. But whoso forgoeth it (in the way of charity) it shall be expiation for him. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are wrong-doers.

    And We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow in their footsteps, confirming that which was (revealed) before him in the Torah, and We bestowed on him the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light, confirming that which was (revealed) before it in the Torah – a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off (evil).

    Let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah hath revealed therein. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are evil-livers.

    And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it. So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee. For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced-out way. Had Allah willed He could have made you one community. But that He may try you by that which He hath given you (He hath made you as ye are). So vie one with another in good works. Unto Allah ye will all return, and He will then inform you of that wherein ye differ.

    So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires, but beware of them lest they seduce thee from some part of that which Allah hath revealed unto thee. And if they turn away, then know that Allah’s Will is to smite them for some sin of theirs. Lo! many of mankind are evil-livers.

    Is it a judgment of the time of (pagan) ignorance that they are seeking ? Who is better than Allah for judgment to a people who have certainty (in their belief) ?

  35. shake and break on November 28, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    His arrogant attorney helped convict him. That was awesome.

  36. gina smith on November 28, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    He’s a coward straight out and saw the opportunity to bully someone.

  37. David Trejo on November 28, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    It was a house under construction…what was he stealing? Materials, tools, windows? And on foot?

  38. Daniel Lewis on November 28, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Let not forget they was going to cover it up…. Since piece of S*** Travis so scared of his life. Months of no accountability. He to busy trying cover it up, with his kkk freaks

  39. darkwillow57 on November 28, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Detaining a person is a very serious act and you need to be absolutely sure you’re right. Even sworn police have specific rules they are to abide by when they do. Granted sometimes they lie to make up probable cause or reasonable suspicion. But since they’re the police the system will usually protect them. As far as you the citizen if you shoot the wrong person u is Fuct.

  40. Milton Hill on November 28, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Anybody who saw the video kan tell after he shot Ahmaud the way he walked of like he just shot a deer kan tell he said some bs after he shot him…
