WHO IS GREGORY MCMICHAEL?
WHO IS GREGORY MCMICHAEL? Gregory McMichael, 65, is a retired law enforcement officer who is white. According to the Guardian, his employment records show he did not complete enough basic law enforcement training.
As a result of failing to complete the required 20 hours of training the previous year, he lost his power of arrest in 2006. From 1995 to 2019, McMichael worked as an investigator for the Brunswick judicial circuit district attorney’s office. “For eight years, Gregory McMichael was acting as an investigator with no arrest powers due to a lack of training,” News4Jax adds. “The lapse in state-mandated training for community-oriented policing, de-escalation, and use-of-force meant McMichael didn’t have the authority or right to apply for arrest warrants, search warrants, or conduct arrests under the color of the law between 2006 and 2014.”
