Black Pastors gather to support Auhmad Arbery

Pastors and other faith leaders from around the country gathered in front of the Glynn County, Ga., Courthouse Thursday, where the trial of the three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery is ongoing. The rally is the largest demonstration in Brunswick since the trial started a month ago.

The interfaith gathering was largely in response to what some see as offensive and outrageous motions made in court by one of the defense attorneys to try to limit who can sit in the courtroom gallery, in reaction to the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson attending the trial at the invitation of the Arbery family.

"We don't want any more Black pastors coming in here ... sitting with the victim's family; trying to influence the jurors in this case," argued defense attorney Kevin Gough, who represents William "Roddie" Bryan, and who compared it to a mob trial where gang members pack the gallery in a silent threat to the jury.
