This Friday, one of the defense attorneys for the two men who shot and killed Ahmaud Arbery apologized for his comments before. a judge where he disparaged the presence of Black pastors and civil rights leaders who made themselves present in the courtroom. Now, he's doubling down.
On Monday, attorney Kevin Gough objected to the presence of Rev. Jesse Jackson, saying seats in the courtroom are "not like courtside seats at a Lakers game."
"How many pastors does the Arbery family have?" Gough said. "We had the Rev. Al Sharpton here earlier last week, and I'm not keeping track and I think the court has indicated that the court doesn't intend to ask anyone to keep track of who is in the gallery, but I don't know who Rev. Jackson is pastoring here."
Last week, Gough said the "idea that we're going to be serially bringing these people in to sit with the victim's family, one after another, obviously there's only so many pastors they can have," later adding, ""If their pastor's Al Sharpton right now, that's fine. But then that's it. We don't want any more Black pastors coming in here."
