Jordan Davis, a 17 year-old black teenager was shot to death by Michael Dunn over a loud music dispute last Friday in — where else — Florida. Apparently Dunn parked next to a car with four black teenagers listening to music and asked them to turn it down. Words were exchanged and Dunn reached into his glove compartment and fired eight to nine random shots — two hit the young man and killed him. Dunn drove off when his girlfriend returned to the car. He claimed he thought he had seen a gun barrel flashed inside the kids car and that they might be gang members.
By the way, no weapons were found inside the kids car.
Couple of things: Does anyone for one second think if the kids had been white Dunn would have opened fire? And his lawyer claims Dunn’s actions were those of a responsble firearm owner. Really? The responsibility bar must be set low.
And finally, he’ll probably get away with it.
