Another Police Encounter With Ahmaud Arbery Released By Police, Why?

ARE GLYNN COUNTY COPS ALLOWED TO RELEASE INFORMATION DESIGNED TO AID MURDER SUSPECTS ON THE BASIS OF RACE? IF SO, IT WOULD BE INTERESTED TO GET DATA ON THE NUMBER OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN CRIMINALS THE POLICE IN THAT COUNTY HAS AIDED?

Another video encounter between Glynn County Police and the mur­dered 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery has found its way into the pub­lic space.
This leads us to ask rhetor­i­cal­ly, why are the police in that Georgia coun­ty going all out to pro­tect three mur­der­ers? By releas­ing infor­ma­tion on the mur­dered vic­tim, for what at best amounts to mis­de­meanor arrests, what do they hope to accom­plish?

It is clear that despite the arrest of three sus­pects, there are efforts afoot to wage clan­des­tine guer­ril­la war­fare against the mur­dered Ahmaud Arbery. Taking his life clear­ly was not enough, what is evi­dent­ly hap­pen­ing is that the police in that coun­ty is part of a guer­ril­la army that is active­ly wag­ing a clan­des­tine cam­paign not just to shape pub­lic per­cep­tions against the mur­dered man but ulti­mate­ly to free the three white men who are now charged with mur­der­ing him.

It is impor­tant to ask ques­tions when there are bla­tant cor­rupt activ­i­ties like these occur­ring, but ask­ing ques­tions is clear­ly not enough.
Whoever is respon­si­ble for the release of the video encoun­ters can eas­i­ly be traced.
These body cam­era encoun­ters are sole­ly in the pos­ses­sion of the police, unless free­dom of infor­ma­tion request forces police to release them, or police release them because it is in their best inter­est to do so.
This reduces the list of per­pe­tra­tors to not just one group of pos­si­ble sus­pects, (the police), but nar­rows it even fur­ther to the police in Glynn County Georgia.

Is the police allowed to engage in this kind of activ­i­ty in order to aid crim­i­nal sus­pects fac­ing mur­der charges, on the basis of race?
We would like to hear from author­i­ties in that area, or any police author­i­ty that engages in this bla­tant­ly crim­i­nal prac­tice.
