You're still acting like a coward and not answering my question. Answering a question with a question is a sure sign that you have nothing but a failing argument.

As I said earlier, I could've killed my neighbor yesterday, but I chose not to. If I kill him tomorrow, though, it's still murder.

So, for the extra chromosome in the room: You seem to believe that the timeline of the shooting is pertinent to the severity of the charges because they had prior opportunity to kill him.

Is that an accurate statement?
timeline is always pertinent,, it helps establish intent and opportunity,,,
it not only has a bearing on the charges but also on the decision the jury makes,,

So, if I choose to kill my neighbor tomorrow, when I could've done so yesterday, am I guilty of a lesser charge?

As to Travis McMichael, perhaps he wanted to shoot Arbery prior to when he did, but he wanted it to look like he was defending himself. That's kind of difficult to do if Daddy shoots him in the back of the head with a .357 while they're chasing him.

If the defense argument is that they shouldn't be found guilty of murder because they took so long to kill him, Travis McMichael will end up on death row and Gregory McMichael will die of old age behind bars...

depends on chain of events and the timeline that led up to it,,

Well, we pretty much know the chain of events.

Which event was it that told Travis McMichael that it would be a good idea to arm himself, chase down a black man, and kill him?

We know Arbery was unarmed.

We know Travis McMichael was armed.

We know Gregory McMichael was armed.

We know that Gregory and Travis McMichael made the decision to initiate a chase of an unarmed man through the streets of Satilla Shores, possibly endangering the lives of others in the process.

This doesn't end any way other than really, really badly for the McMichael braintrust...

read my comments,,

I have.

Nowhere have you stated the "facts" I've left out.

In that regard, you continue to be nothing more than a rather impressive example of an unqualified failure...

how was it a pre planned ambush when they were chasing him??

thats the opposite of pre planned,,

over charging could get them off,,
Only Bryan was chasing Arbery when the McMichaels tried blocking his escape just seconds before Travis shot him.

You're lying again. You should stop. There was no such "huge field" beside them. There was nothing but private properties lining both sides of the street...

Liar, you said there was a "huge field" he could escape to. Shouldn't you apologize to the forum for lying?

Of course you lied. You said there was a "huge field" he could have run to. There was no such "huge field." There were only private properties. So you're not going to man up for lying, huh?

To where could he have escaped? Bryan was behind him. The McMichaels were in front of him. And private properties lined both sides of the street.

He was being chased for being on someone's property... you think he should have then run onto someone's property?
