Florida Man Kills Youth Over Loud Music

What in the world is going on in this country when a man feels justified in firing several shots into a car wherein kids were playing loud music?

Michael David Dunn shot and killed 17 year-old Jordan Davis as Davis sat in the back seat of a SUV at a Jacksonville, Florida gas station.  Dunn claims he saw a gun and felt threatened.  The police have not found the gun he says threatened him. To the credit of local law enforcement, Dunn was arrested the next day, after fleeing the scene with his girlfriend. Dunn fired at least eight rounds into the vehicle.

Strangely or conveniently enough, Dunn is positioning himself to use Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law, which allows persons who feel threatened to use deadly force.  It is highly likely that Dunn will not get a pass using that defense, especially since there are witnesses to the shooting, no fight occurred between Davis and Dunn, and no gun was found in the SUV Davis was in.

This case bears watching, and will be followed up on in the next few weeks.


  1. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see
    if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  3. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems
    with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
