After the verdict members of the black community and Arbery’s relatives stood outside the courthouse and lauded the outcome.

Arbery’s parents fought for him and were “an example of how to deal with tragedy and grief,” Crump said, reminding the crowd that even as they celebrated the verdict, Arbery’s parents remain devastated by his death.

Marcus Arbery thanked God, his family and the family’s supporters and said he doesn’t want to see any other father have to live through what he lived through.

Prosecutors said the defendants had “assumed the worst” about a black man out on a Sunday afternoon jog.

The prosecution was widely seen as another test case in how the US justice system handles instances of unarmed black people killed by white people.

Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley said he was required to accept the “race-neutral” reasons defence lawyers gave for the removal of all but one potential black juror
