Ahmaud Arbery, the Georgia man who was shot and killed while jogging near his home in February, is the cousin of Lions defensive back Tracy Walker.

“That’s crazy they killed my cousin in cold blood like this,” Walker wrote on Twitter.

Walker described Arbery as “a person full of laughter and joy,” in an interview with E!News.

A father and son, Gregory McMichael and Travis McMichael, were initially not arrested or charged for killing Arbery. After a national outcry following the release of a video of the shooting this week, both McMichaels were charged with murder. Walker said he and his family appreciate the many people who refused to remain silent about Arbery’s death.

“It’s amazing to have that much support, have that many people get behind one simple cause, and that’s justice,” Walker said. “That’s all we could ask for.”

Walker said he hopes America will “learn from this” and find a way to “grow together.”

“It’s crazy that a man was out there jogging by himself and just getting exercise and he was shot down,” Walker states. “We can’t continue to kill ourselves and kill each other off. That’s not ok. We can’t continue with the violence.”

  1. I can’t believe someone would do this is in broad daylight to this young man, I hope they go to jail for the rest of there lives and be put in solitary confinement and never see anyone except the gate keeper. Nobody deserves to have there life taken in this manner

  2. I hope they get a fair trial without the rhetoric. Sure, the video looks damning. But, let’s give them their day in court with an unbiased jury.

    Guilty? Throw the book at them.
    Not-guilty? Accept it as just from the jury that weighed all the evidence without the drama.

  3. He was killed 6 or 7 weeks ago, he just now is learning his cousin was killed?

    I hope they go to prison for the rest of their lives in general population.

  5. WHAT?????? He was killed on February 23rd and today “he mourns?” did he even know him? or just cashing in on the popularity of the story……

  6. Even if he did steal like they claimed why couldn’t they let the cops deal with it?

  7. Yes, his cousin was killed in Feburary however like almost everybody else it was the first time he saw the video when it leaked. Obviously that’s going to rile up some emotions. Some people need to think before they post.

  8. People start marching and demanding that these guys fry and they don’t know what happened. This is what happens. Green, Brown…I do not know anything about this young man. Did he have a record? Did he live in the neighborhood he was running in? People start marching and the government bends over backwards to accommodate them. Now, these two guys lives are ruined. LET THE TRIAL PLAY OUT.
