The lynching of Ahmaud Arbery can be traced to the 2nd Amendment.
There is a more disturbing historical context to the Ahmaud Arbery lynching in Georgia that most people who haven’t studied law, could be missing.
It has to do with the 2nd Amendmentment.
Read it and you will come across the mention of “well-regulated militias.”
Well-regulated militias became important in the south when it became unlawful for cops to lynch black people THEMSELVES “under the color of law.” So they would arrest Blacks and then pass them on to a “well-regulated militia” for punishment for any number of crimes, like whistling at a White woman, etc…
Also, as it became unlawful for cops to restrict Black freedom of travel in the south, private citizens in well-regulated militias would accomplish that duty outside of the law. Constitutional Scholars contend that the “Well-regulated militia” clause was a negotiation between the North and the South where the South felt the need to still exercise heavy controls on a big population of former slaves.
The Killers of Ahmoud Arbery, Father and Son McMichaels, were not even arrested after killing an unarmed man in broad daylight. That means the cops were supportive. The McMichaels folk started the fight and there were two of them against one.
They were operating as a “Well-Regulated Militia.” What they did, is literally part of American history. They restricted Black travel through different neighborhoods.
The only difference these days is that now they get in trouble for it sometimes. But this is largely American history.
