    FL - Michael Dunn on trial for shooting death of Jordan Davis, 17 - #7

    Argument over loud music led to teen's fatal shooting, cops say (orlandosentinel.com)
    A Brevard County man was in jail Monday, accused of shooting a teenager dead in an argument over loud music.

    Michael David Dunn, 45, and his girlfriend were in Jacksonville Friday for Dunn's son's wedding when they stopped at a convenience store, Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob Schoonover said.

    Jordan Russell Davis, 17, and several other teenagers were sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot when Dunn pulled up next to them in a car and asked them to turn down their music, Schoonover said.

    Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice, Schoonover said. Jordan was sitting in the back seat. No one else was hurt.

    Dunn's attorney Monday said her client acted responsibly and in self-defense. She did not elaborate.

    I'm disheartened by demonstrators chanting "No justice, no peace". Violence solves nothing. #DunnTrial

    the tone the chant is being delivered and some tension that has been seen the last few days influences the perception.


    Stephanie Brown ‏@NewsAndNom 1m
    indeed, but the tone it's being chanted in and other rumblings around here are creating some tension

    I am here, but have gotten no word on developments since the 9:40ish jury question.

    Yes because what is justice? What the mob says? No it's the process of a fair trial which is what is happening.

    I read where security has been heightened around the courthouse and the JSO has made preparations for possible rioting. I noticed the gentleman in plain clothes in the courtroom this AM, making sure the members of the Davis family were safely escorted out of the courtroom.

    I really hope there is no violence regardless of outcome. It serves no purpose at all. JMO

    I'm glad they're protesting. Loudly. And that people are uncomfortable.

    "No justice, no peace" is not a threat of violence. "No peace" means no peace for the consciences of those complacent folks who allow these things to happen in their communities. It's a wake up call, and a message that these injustices will not be taken in stride. That the community that allows it to happen will not be allowed to simply brush it under the rug anymore.

    I've got to leave at 1:00 pm to pick up grandchildren ages 13,12,11 and 11 so needless to say I will not be able to sit and watch for verdict today. They will be spending the night too. I will however try to check in as much as possible. I was really hoping that when I turned tv on this morning, a verdict reached banner would be running across bottom of screen. Anyway, maybe my absence will invigorate the jury into action, LOL. I'm actually hoping for a hung jury if the jury can't vote for quilty on M1, M2 or Manslaughter.

The fact that MD finds this a good quality in himself or feels it is something to brag to his gramma about is very telling to me. It makes me tend to think the neighbors descriptions of MD given to the Davis attorney is dead on.
    Yes, and if he gets off for this, it'll be another case of a spoiled little sociopath literally getting away with murder, IMO.

    Is it truly fair?

    I don't believe so.

    Arguably, the system is stacked against defendants and victims of color. Can a fair trial ever be had, really?

    Just something to consider from the side of "the mob" (kind of a loaded term, IMO).
