“The Five” reacted to the trial of Ahmaud Arbery during which three males have been discovered responsible Wednesday of felony homicide in Georgia, noting that this was an instance of the justice system working.
“One thing that’s also interesting is that we’re celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow as a country, and we give thanks for our nation and our system [of] a trial by jury. It’s sometimes … slow and it takes a long time – it’s been a year and a half. But you know what? It works,” Dana Perino stated about the consequence in the Arbery case.
In addition to felony homicide the defendants – Travis McMichael, 35; his father, Gregory McMichael, 65; and their neighbor William Bryan, 52 – have been additionally convicted of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and felony try to commit a felony.

“The Five” panel continued on to focus on the stark variations in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse and the Ahmaud Arbery case.

“So you humans do like to group things, especially when incidents happen close together,” Gutfeld stated. “For me, you have the Rittenhouse case and you have the Arbery murders. These are close together. But it shows you that if you pick the right filter, which is the filter of self-defense, you would have easily predicted the outcomes of both cases.”
“If you had used a different filter like race, you wouldn’t have. But if you use self-defense, obviously, Rittenhouse, clearly self-defense. Arbery, obviously, clearly murder. The prism, the prism of self-defense would have told you how that would have panned out,” Gutfeld continued.
Arbery was an unarmed 25-year-old Black man who was chased after which killed as he tried to flee from the defendants in Satilla Shores, Georgia.
The prosecution believed Arbery was killed as a result of “he was a Black man running down the street.” The defendants claimed they have been attempting to perform a official citizen’s arrest, a legislation that has since been repealed in Georgia, and that Travis McMichael shot Arbery in self-defense.
“The point is you need to have more than one filter in life or you’re going to be very, very confused. I feel great about this decision. The justice system worked … the media [assumed] that … White jurors only vote in a specific way and they grouped in in a bigoted, uniform, bigoted manner. And we know that this isn’t true and it shows you how every case is different. Every case is nuanced. Avoid these sweeping generalizations,” Gutfeld stated.
