image for Warnock: 'True justice' is a Black man not having to worry about being killed while jogging

"This verdict upholds a sense of accountability, but not true justice," Warnock said in a tweet.

"True justice looks like a Black man not having to worry about being harmed — or killed — while on a jog, while sleeping in his bed, while living what should be a very long life.".

"I'm grateful to the jury for their service and for a verdict that says Ahmaud Arbery's life mattered," the senator continued in a second tweet.

"He was a son, a nephew, a child of God, and he did not deserve to die in this way.".

Warnock's comments come after the Georgia jury found Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan guilty of multiple counts of murder.

Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, also reacted to the verdict, saying in a statement that "justice has been served.".
