Oops, bringing over from the other thread as I asked some questions just as it was shutting down:
I don't know much about this trial, I only have caught a few minutes here and there on HLN in the background. I have two groups questions, if anyone can help me:
1. Are any/none/all of the letters, and specifically the racist letters, that MD wrote from jail going to be available as evidence?
2. Is there any news about the jury composition? How many are there, and how many alternates? Not sequestered, right? What about composition of age, race, gender, vocations? Anything noteworthy from jury selection or other jury observations?
There are FAR too many hotheads out there. God forbid if they all had guns.
I've said it before, I've seen enough of "The First 48" to know that in just ONE moment of anger or perceived insult, so many lives change in that instant. You can't unring the bell or get a "do-over" - it's done.
And most often the people in the Murder Interrogation Room on TF48 end up sobbing and saying how sorry they are. Well, all that "sorry" ain't gonna get you out of jail, and it certainly won't bring back a life.
The worst thing about this POS, is that he shows absolutely NO remorse. He only comes off (and has said) it was warranted.
Thank you for the shiny new thread, Coldpizza!
(Can you make the colored bars go away, too?)
Lulu67, I agree, he has shown no remorse. But, if he has to convince the jurors that it was self defense, he has to at least act like he believes it himself. I don't know whether he really does or just is playing it up for the jury.
It's really sad either way. If he had just ignored the music, he would have been at home with his happy life right now.
And, Jordan Davis would be alive and well.
And life would be full of rainbows and unicorns, right?
1.) Not sure, since I didn't know about that.
2.) I believe there are 10 white people, 4 black people, 2 Asians and a Latino/a. I may be wrong, but that's what's in my mind. And no....I obviously am not sure on how many people are seated (jurors and alternates). I think the majority of them are women though.
Edited to add: I probably didn't help at all. =o)
They already quoted a letter written to somebody ("Matthew"?) where Dunn described the event.
And toss in some alcohol for bravado.
Any idea how far behind HLN is in the testimony? He's questioning how Dunn got out of his car/ran behind his car and was protecting girlfriend coming out of the station.
for Lulu...go to Courtchatter and she has a detailed list of the jury...pretty mixed bag
It appears that they must have been ruled inadmissible or they would have been brought out by now. I'd think. Maybe they can be brought out while he's on the stand and hopefully that's what the 20 minute break is about. And hopefully they'll rule to let him be questioned about them.
Someone posted that in the last thread. Maybe they can do it again here.
Clock is back on WAT - no more colored bars
I wonder why the prosecutor is letting him explain himself so far beyond a "yes" or a "no" to his questions. Maybe he is hoping to trip him up?
This article shows excerpts from some of the letters I was wondering about: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/18/jordan-davis-shooter-michael-dunn_n_4123805.html
I'll quote one below:
There are others of a similar theme, sent to various people.
The more Dunn talks, the worse he sounds. Not just what he says, but the attitude he has when he's saying them. Mr. Guy knows exactly what he's doing
MD just makes my skin crawl mainly because I use to have a neighbor who looked and acted just like this man
