Ahmaud Arbery, a black jogger, was fatally shot in Georgia on Feb. 23. Police have identified two white men – Gregory McMichael and Travis McMichael – who used a pickup truck to pursue Arbery. No arrests have been made.

LeBron James:

These types of incidents have too often been swept under the rug. Video of this shooting becoming public makes it far less likely to be ignored.

LeBron – with his platform – puts a little more pressure on authorities.
