BRUNSWICK, Ga. — At the intersection of Burford Road, Satilla Drive and Holmes Road, there was nary a sign Monday morning of the horrific event that occurred there more than a year and a half ago.
Iside the Glynn County Courthouse, jury selection has begun for the trial of the two men — Travis McMichael and his father, Gregory McMichael — and a neighbor, William Bryan, who videotaped the encounter on his cellphone. Lawyers for the three men say they were acting in self-defense; all three are charged with murder.
Outside the courthouse, a collection of religious and civic leaders — Black and white — met on the steps of the building in a show of unity.
It was as much a collective prayer for the survival of the town as it was an attempt to comfort Arbery’s family.
