Ahmaud Arbery’s mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones, said that she is worried about the almost all white jury selected to decide the fate of the Georgia men who shot and killed her 25-year-old son.

Speaking with ABC News, Wanda Cooper-Jones called the nearly all white jury, “very, very discouraging.”

While jurors are asked to remove any racial bias that may carry with them into the court in order to give a just, and fair verdict based solely on the evidence, the racial implications of most cases like Arbery’s cannot be ignored.

Shot and killed while jogging at night, Ahmaud Arbery‘s alleged attackers are three white Georgians – Travis McMichael, 35, his father Gregory, a 65-year-old retired police officer, and William Bryan, 52, their neighbor. The three men attempted a citizens arrest because they thought the young Black man was a burglar, based on a recent crime that happened in the area.

A criminal jury is said to be a representation of your “peers,” but for some, like Ahmaud Arbery’s mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones, only one of the 12 jurors who is Black may truly understand what she’s been through.

“I have my concerns about getting a guilty verdict,” Wanda Cooper-Jones told ABC News, adding that what worried her the most was that “the jurors that we picked won’t see things the way that I see things and we will get a very different verdict.”

Out of a pool of nearly 1,000 prospective jurors for the trial, 12 people in the final pool were Black. In the final selection of the 12 people that will decide the verdict, 11 were white and only one was Black. The prosecution has raised objection based on racial bias, but opening statements are still set to begin on Friday.

“I do believe with state’s evidence that we still will have a good outcome,” Wanda Cooper-Jones said. When asked what that outcome would be, she responded saying that “justice for Ahmaud looks like having all three individuals… sentenced to life in prison.”

Although Judge Timothy Walmsley recognized “the racial overtones in this case,” he denied the prosecution their objection to reinstate dismissed potential Black jurors.

According to ABC News, a middle-aged white woman was dismissed due to medical issues, but was replaced by another white alternate.

The defense had used all 24 of the juror strikes against potential Black jurors, and stated that the three would-be jurors that the prosecution asked to be reinstated all openly supported the “I run with Maud” movement, as well as showing up to court with the opinion that all of the defendants were guilty before the trail started.

Even so, the jury was expected to be revisited after it was found that one of the potential women made a series of TikTok dances that were created in “tribute” to Ahmaud Arbery. One video was captioned with the red heart emoji and the hashtag #runwithmaud.

Judge Timthoy Walmsley said that there “appears to be potential discrimination in the panel,” but the only racial bias reported thus far has been in support of the prosecution to see the three men put behind bars.

Defense attorney Kevin Gough, who represents William Bryan, said that he believed that “clearly this juror has an emotional connection to Mr. Arbery.”

The three men have plead not guilty to charges of murder, aggravated assault, federal hate crimes, and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.

Defense attorneys are allegedly going to use a pre-Civil War-era law that was repealed following Ahmaud Arbery’s killing, that said that the men could be justified in their attempted arrest since the former-law said that civilians had the power to arrest anyone that they “reasonably suspected” of trying to escape from a felony. In this case, defense attorneys will have to prove that all three defendants had reason to suspect that Arbery was the recent burglar in the neighborhood outside of an racial motive.

“11 of 12 is 11 of 12,” said Charlie Bailey, a Democrat running for attorney general in Georgia’s state election. “It’s hard for me to believe — and I think it’s hard for most people to believe — that 11 of 12 did not have anything to do with race.”
