Joe Biden Demands Justice For Georgia Murder Of Black Jogger

Joe Biden is demanding justice for the Georgia killing of an unarmed black man who was out jogging when he was hunted down and shot to death.

Biden has sent out a tweet saying: "The video is clear: Ahmaud Arbery was killed in cold blood. My heart goes out to his family, who deserve justice and deserve it now. It is time for a swift, full, and transparent investigation into his murder."

Tom Durden, the district attorney for the Atlantic Judicial Circuit, decided on Tuesday that a grand jury should be involved. "After careful review of the evidence," he wrote in a statement, "I am of the opinion that the case should be presented to the grand jury of Glynn County for consideration of criminal charges."

A statement from Lee Merritt, a lawyer for Mr Arbery's family, said: "This is murder. The series of events captured in this video confirm what all the evidence indicated prior to its release."

Governor Brian Kemp tweeted that "Georgians deserve answers".
