The mother of Ahmaud Arbery says local police would’ve sided with her son’s murderers — covering up for the men accused of the heinous crime — if the video hadn’t surfaced, Your Content has learned.

“I believe it would have been covered up,” Wanda Cooper-Jones told Fox News Monday evening during an explosive sit down. “This is a place that I have lived in for many years and I never thought I would ever experience this.”

Cooper-Jones’ son was shot and killed on Feb. 23, allegedly by Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, according to a Glynn County police report.

On Monday, the federal Justice Department announced it would consider a request made by Georgia Attorney General Christopher Carr to determine whether to pursue federal hate-crime charges against the McMichaels.

“I do think there are prejudices and racism, but I never worried about my son,” Wanda Cooper-Jones told Fox News. “Maybe he would be pulled over by a cop in his car, but never did I worry that he would be out jogging and shot.”

Cooper-Jones believes the neighbor — William Roddy Bryan — should also face charges.

“Why would you videotape it? Why didn’t he do anything to help? Why didn’t he reach out right after the shooting? Why did he only come forward after the video was leaked?”

Lee Merritt, an attorney working with Ahmaud’s mother, told Fox News he didn’t buy the “good neighbor” claim.

“He is a liar,” Merritt said, adding that Bryan had changed his story from telling the police he was trying to trap Arbery to now “launching a campaign to clear his name.”

“If he was a good Samaritan, he would have honked his horn. It’s worth noting that on the video, he doesn’t even flinch. He doesn’t gasp. Shot after shot. He simply takes it all in.”
