White Man Shoots And Kills Black Student In Florida After Argument Over Loud Music

Less than nine months after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in central Florida, another black teenage student was killed under suspicious circumstances.

Michael David Dunn, a 45-year-old vice president of Dunn & Dunn Data Systems in Vero Beach, was in Jacksonville this past weekend for his son’s wedding. The Orlando Sentinel details what happened on Friday when Dunn, a gun collector, encountered Jordan Russell Davis, a student at nearby magnet school Samuel W. Wolfson High:

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, [Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob] 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.

Schoonover also said that “there were words exchanged” between the two, and Dunn claims to have felt “threatened” before opening fire.

According to his father Ron Davis, the teenager died in the arms of his friend in the car. Ron said his son was unarmed.

Dunn was arrested at his home on Saturday and charged with murder and attempted murder. He is being held without bail.

Schoonover’s funeral will take place on Saturday, Dec. 1 and his parents plan to create a foundation “for at risk students that suffer from tragedies, in his memory.”

Since Dunn is claiming self-defense, Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which earned infamy after Trayvon Martin’s killing, could be at issue in this case. After Martin’s death, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) appointed a task force to review the law that authorizes the unfettered use of deadly force in self-defense, but the panel didn’t recommend any significant changes.


OP: Over MUSIC? He murdered because the music was too loud? WTF is wrong with people these days?

Let a white teen get shot and killed by a black man in Florida who uses the "Stand Your Ground" law.

Watch how fast that shit gets fucking repealed.

This is outrageous. Its disgusting.

Once again what the fuck is a grown ass man doing pulling a gun on a vehicle full of kids!? He is a man with a gun, what the hell is he doing feeling 'threatened' by a couple of teenagers calling him a cornball or telling him to STFU.

I fucking can't with this. This is murder, plain and simple. But still, self defense??? Asshole, you were in your car. Using "self-defense" as an excuse for murder can only stretch so far.
oceandezignz 28th-Nov-2012 08:04 am (UTC)
Yeah no. The client did NOT act responsibly. At all. This article shows how blasé the fuckwit was about the whole thing til it turns out he killed someone, and the cops were already on his trail.

Convenient though he gets to cry 'stand your ground' though. Real convenient.

I'd love to personally ask him what was so threatening about a group of kids in their car, not interacting with him at all til he decided to butt in with what HAD to have been his oh-so-superior 'White is Right' attitude.

yeah this asshat lives in the same county as i do and i actually used to live one town over from him. no shortage of racist white men who would pull this type of shit, let me tell you.

can't wait to get out of this county and state.

Self defense is not "8 or 9 shots"! How disgusting! May this boy rest in peace and get the justice he deserves.

Ah! I suppose you might have had reason to be afraid if you thought you were in the presence of armed, trigger-happy assholes.

Projecting, much?

What the fuck is wrong with people? This is so sad and senseless.

i put this in the queue too -- glad to see it posted.

I feel like something like this happened a while back as well?

...er. I strongly disagree with that assertion. No way in hell was a verbal conflict in separate vehicles grounds for defensive homicide.
emofordino 28th-Nov-2012 01:38 pm (UTC)
EXACTLY. you can't claim self-defense if YOU are the one who instigated it! not to mention he pulled the trigger eight or nine times! that isn't self-defense, that is intentional.
spyral_path 28th-Nov-2012 09:33 am (UTC)
He was armed and pulled up on them. How is he the one feeling threatened in this equation?

How the hell does the notion of 'self defense' even come up in a case like this. It's almost as bad an excuse as a guy here in Belgium who claimed he used a chainsaw against a guy because he was hard of hearing and hadn't heard that the argument his co-worker was having with the guy, was already over.

'acted responsibly and in self-defense'

How the fuck is shooting a teenager over LOUD MUSIC responsible?????????
pleasure_past 28th-Nov-2012 11:19 am (UTC)
He fired eight or nine shots into a car full of unarmed teenagers because their music was too loud and one of them gave him a dirty look.

And they are trying to argue that this was responsible self-defense.

... I can't.

My heart goes out to the victim's friends and family, especially the friends that were in the car with the victim. What a tragic, traumatic thing to witness.
tabaqui 28th-Nov-2012 12:11 pm (UTC)
Okay, how does 'stand your ground' get used here when he's in his *car*, which he could just drive away from any possible 'danger'?? And why the fuck does he care how loud the music was? He was in a fucking parking lot, for fuck's sake.

AND WHY IS HE SUCH AN ASSHOLE, WHAT THE FUCK. At least this fuckhead is in jail and charged with murder, not out running around free. And there are actual witnesses so his lies will be challenged. Because fuck knows he's going to lie.
maladaptive 28th-Nov-2012 12:47 pm (UTC)
Because stand your ground means you have NO duty to retreat from a threatening situation. So even though the logical answer is "drive away," the law doesn't obligate him to do so.

Love how it doesn't benefit the people who need the law and were in consideration when the law was written, but it does benefit these wild west gunslinging fucksticks. Shocking how that works. Honestly.
shortsweetcynic 28th-Nov-2012 12:19 pm (UTC)

my entire brain has blue-screened trying to process this. abort, retry, fail.

this is heartbreaking.

"self defense". come here that i might show you some self defense, asshole.
