Arebery family attorney posted this message to his social media saying how the local police told the homeoener to contact McMichael if he had any action at his construction site.
The caption said, “It’s garage week. OFFICER ROBERT RASH told the homeowner Larry English to contact Gregory McMichael if he had “any action” on the cameras at his construction site. Gregory McMichael and his son formed an armed posse on at least two occasions in full knowledge of the GLYNN COUNTY PD on Feb 11, 2020 and Feb 23, 2020. The posse that Rash encouraged eventually murdered #AhmaudArbery. Rash said nothing about his text message to English until it was released last week. Knowing that he told English to contact the McMichaels and that the McMichaels organized men with guns to hunt down Ahmaud In February— he kept quiet. He is still at work today. This is his week too.
