The man seen on video fatally shooting Ahmaud Arbery acknowledged that Arbery did not threaten him during a chase and that he could’ve stopped following him before the defense rested its case on Thursday.

Travis McMichael also told prosecutors he did not tell police some of the details about the pursuit that he shared in court on Wednesday.

McMichael took the stand early Thursday for cross-examination after testifying for about three hours Wednesday during which he broke down while describing the final moments of his confrontation with Arbery on Feb. 23, 2020. He was the first of seven witnesses called by the defense and told the jury he wanted to share his “side of the story.”

The attorneys for McMichael’s co-defendants, his father, Gregory, and neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan, did not present cases before the defense rested. Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday morning.

I Don’t Believe in Karma

Some people believe in karma, but I don’t. Some people believe what you do will come back on you some way or the other. I do believe that everything you do does have consequences. Sometimes those consequences are small and insignificant and sometimes rather large and unbearing. Recently, my truck was in the garage for about six weeks getting a new engine because the old engine had died. That was the longest time I’ve been separated from my truck in, I don’t know how many years. It was either get a new engine or a new truck. The engine was a lot cheaper. While my truck was in the shop, I used the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage’s van. Believe me when I say it was a challenge to drive that little van. It was difficult for me to get in and out, and once I was in, it was hard for me to move about. I had no choice. Either borrow my wife’s van or walk.

Should Your Staff Also Be Your Friends?

There should be a big difference between our friends and the people with whom we’re friendly, but many of us struggle to make the distinction. We may refer to everyone in our circle as friends, but all too often if we don’t see them or they fall off our radar we hardly notice or query their absence.

You Don’t Know Who You Really Are Until You Use You True Power

Who are you as a person when challenged, or face insurmountable hardship? Have you met this person? If so, what did you learn about yourself? Regrettably, few people discover their true self until faced with extreme difficulties and pain. When we venture into the darkness; we meet this other self, or what I call the True Self.
