Don't Forget Jordan Davis!

Posted on the 17 July 2013 by Mikeb302000
I mean it's not hard to forget another young black man was shot in cold blood by someone who was emboldened by Florida's "get away with murder" law.
Michael David Dunn, 45, told police he shot and killed Davis at a gas station last year because he feared for his life.
And what was this life threatening situation which led to the death of Jordan Davis?


Yep, a drunken Michael Dunn had told Davis and his friends to turn down their loud music.
Dunn claims that the situation escalated and the teens began threatening him. Dunn started shooting because he thought they had a shotgun.
“It was either a barrel or a stick but, sir, they’re like we’re going to kill you and then they said, ‘you’re dead [expletive removed].’ What I should have done was put the car in reverse, but that shotgun come up or whatever it was – fight or flight – and I don’t think there was time for flight at that moment because I was going to get shot.”
Dunn fled the scene, but was arrested the next day.
So much for "standing his ground"--maybe the fact that he was drunk form being at a wedding reception might partially account for not staying on the scene?
Dunn, who faces a first-degree murder charge and three attempted murder charges, plans to invoke Florida’s controversial “Stand your ground” law in his defense.
Come on! We know that gun owners aren't victims--they are the ones doing the killing of unarmed people!
Don't forget Jordan Davis!
