Three white men charged in the death of Ahmaud Arbrey, a 2-year-old Black man, have been convicted of murder.

What does justice look like for Black Americans?

Dr. Michael Bell, senior pastor of Greater St. Stephen First Church in Fort Worth, Texas and Baltimore-area attorney Ivan Bates join Dr. Kaye for the discussion.

ATLANTA (AP) — The killing got captured on video and shared around the world. It showed Ahmaud Arbery running toward, then around an idling pickup truck before its driver blasted him at close range with a shotgun.

After 13 days of testimony, a disproportionately white jury in Georgia convicted all three white men of murder charges.

Murder convictions carry a minimum penalty of life in prison.

The judge decides whether that comes with or without the possibility of parole.

Even if the possibility of parole is granted, a person convicted of murder must serve 30 years before becoming eligible.
