Michael Dunn Verdict Watch – Day 4

Judge Russell Healey denies a motion for acquittal made by defense attorney Cory Strolla.Michael Dunn will have to wait another day at least to learn his fate.

He is charged with first-degree murder in the November 2012 death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, one of four black teenagers who were in an SUV shot by Dunn — who is white — in violence that flared from an argument over loud music.

The Jacksonsville, Florida, jury in Dunn’s case deliberated all day Friday, only to send a message to the judge shortly before 7 p.m. that they had “reached a wall for the evening.” In other words, for the second straight day they hadn’t reached a decision.

With that, Judge Russell Healey gave them the OK to head back to their hotel so that they could return for deliberations around 9 a.m. Saturday.

“This is one admirable group,” Healey told the court shortly before dismissing the jury. “They are clearly taking this thing as seriously as they should. And I couldn’t be more proud of them for how hard they are working.”

    We Are Respectable Negroes (WARN)

    Stand Your Ground Post-Jordan Davis Michael Dunn Colorblind Racist Talking Points: Are ‘Big White Men’ ‘Stereotyped’ in the Same Way as ‘African-Americans’?

    Colorblind racism is marked by false equivalences and lazy thinking that try to collapse the particular experiences of black and brown people with white supremacy into a huge and ill defined morass whcih includes “unfairness” and “prejudice” as experiences had by all groups and individuals in the same way.

      THIS: “When a person of color–African-Americans in particular–are clear victims of white racism the natural defense for many white folks is to suggest that race doesn’t matter and “such things happen to me too”. The first deflection is oriented at invalidating and undermining the humanity and lived experiences of people of color. The second claim is based on a false type of empathy, one with the ultimate goal of trumping our experiences with a smothering blanket of white privilege.

      The two scripts generate the following script. Black and brown folks are overly sensitive, did not experience what we thought we did, and if some type of white racism was operative, we are exaggerating it somehow and ought to learn how to deal with white people’s “logical” and “rational” fears of, and biases towards, us.”

    Statement From Rev. Al Sharpton Regarding The Verdict In The Michael Dunn Case

    NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK
    Reverend Al Sharpton, President

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—

    STATEMENT FROM REV. AL SHARPTON REGARDING THE VERDICT IN THE MICHAEL DUNN CASE

    February 15, 2014 (New York)–Reverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network :

    “We are deeply disappointed by the verdict in the case of Michael Dunn. Though he was convicted for attempted murder and shooting into the car, the value of Jordan Davis’ life was not addressed in this verdict. The mistrial further sends a chilling effect to parents in the twenty-three states that have the Stand Your Ground law or laws similar. It requires the Civil Rights community to head into Florida, which is now ground zero for a National fight to change that law. From Trayvon Martin to Jordan Davis enough is enough. Our National board member Bishop Rudy Mckissick has been in the court room during the trial, including tonight representing us and supporting the family; sharing with them our prayers as we join them in pursuing justice and the ending the Stand Your Ground law.”

    “Michael Dunn Trial: White Fear Matters More Than Black Lives:
    A Florida jury failed to convict yet another man for killing an unarmed black teenager. By their logic, Michael Dunn should have kept shooting and never asked questions.”

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/02/16/michael-dunn-trial-white-fear-matters-more-than-black-lives.html

    Let’s say you wanted to kill a black teenager. The reason doesn’t matter. Maybe they looked too suspicious while walking home, or maybe they just wouldn’t obey when you gave them a command. The goal, however, is to make the kill without getting convicted.
    Well, if there’s anything to take away from the trial of Michael Dunn, it’s that—in the state of Florida—this is possible. You just need to be more thorough than Dunn could manage in his initial rage, when he killed Davis for being a “thug” who wouldn’t bend to his will.

    First, let’s look at the trial. Yes, assuming a tough judge, the 47-year-old Dunn will go to prison for the rest of his life. But he won’t be going to prison for Davis’s death. On the charge of first degree murder in the killing of the unarmed teenager, the jury couldn’t come to a decision. Indeed, if Dunn is facing a jail cell at all, it’s because the jury found him guilty of attempted murder in the case of Davis’ friends—after killing Davis, Dunn fired more shots into the vehicle. The jury has held him for shooting at three teenagers, but not for killing the fourth.

    With that said, there’s another way to look at this. If Dunn had killed Davis and his friends—or if he had killed Davis without shooting afterwards—then, by to the logic of the jury, he would have escaped punishment altogether. Which provides a guide, of sorts, for future killers, racist or otherwise. Claim fear, kill your target, and either do so away from people, or be sure to kill any witnesses. As long as you can portray the witnesses as also threatening, it seems like you could avoid jail time.

    Which, you know, is insane, both in what it says about Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law—your best bet for getting away with murder is to shoot first and kill everyone—and what it says about the value of black lives vis-à-vis the state’s legal system. According to the criminal justice system of Florida, you are right to fear African-American men, and if you decide to act on that fear with violence, then you stand a good chance of avoiding conviction, on account of a jury that—more likely than not—will sympathize with your fear.

    The facts back this up. In states with “Stand Your Ground,” homicides with a white perpetrator and a black victim are 10 times more likely than the reverse to be ruled “justifiable,” and that increases to 281 times more likely when both the perpetrator and the victim are white.

    In fairness to Florida, it’s not as if this—white fear as an adjudicating factor for black life—is a new thing. It’s the force behind the lynching epidemic of the early 20th century, the racial terrorism of the 1920s, and the economic assaults—riots and redlining—of the post-war period. And for all of the real problems of the current moment, there was a belief that we had put that behind us. Which is one reason why this case is so jarring. No, “Stand Your Ground” isn’t as egregious as the worst of Jim Crow, but there’s no denying that it hardens to a time when you could shoot first and never ask questions, as long as the victim was a black person.

    I think I speak for many black people when I say that’s terrifying.

        That is God’s truth. The NRA, ALEC, and bad laws like SYG are the last gasp of the white supremacists who know they are losing power as their numbers diminish. The demographics of this country are against them and they are in fear as whites become a smaller percentage of the population. They are losing power so they cling to their guns and to each other and get legislation passed (in states with Republican dominated legislatures) that they think will secure their power for a long time to come.

        We have to prove them wrong. We need to go after these bad laws until they are off the books because reasonable and equitable laws are all that can stand between an armed racist like Dunn or Zimmerman and black males (and other innocent people.) Changing hearts and minds is nice to talk about, but in the real world, we know that the Dunns and the Zimmermans don’t change. All we have is the law standing between us and them. And those laws need to be good laws that are enforced equally for all people.

    On The Killing Of Jordan Davis By Michael Dunn
    Ta-Nehisi Coates Feb 15 2014, 10:07 PM ET

    I wish I had something more to say about the fact that Michael Dunn was not convicted for killing a black boy. Except I said it after George Zimmerman was not convicted of killing a black boy. Except the parents of black boys already know this. Except the parents of black boys have long said this, and they have been answered with mockery.

    Jordan Davis had a mother and a father. It did not save him. Trayvon Martin had a mother and a father. They could not save him. My son has a father and mother. We cannot protect him from our country, which is our aegis and our assailant. We cannot protect our children because racism in America is not merely a belief system but a heritage, and the inability of black parents to protect their children is an ancient tradition.
    ……………………………………………

    Spare us the invocations of “black on black crime.” I will not respect the lie. I would rather be thought insane. The most mendacious phrase in the American language is “black on black crime,” which is uttered as though the same hands that drew red lines around the ghettoes of Chicago are not the same hands that drew red lines around the life of Jordan Davis, as though black people authored North Lawndale and policy does not exist. That which mandates the murder of our Hadiya Pendletons necessarily mandates the murder of Jordan Davis. I will not respect any difference. I will not respect the lie. I would rather be thought crazy.

    Sending my thanks to the jurors who made it possible for there to be a retrial on Count 1.

    May Dunn be sentenced to the max on the other four counts.

    Jordan, I will be watching the retrial and praying that you receive the justice that you deserve.

    A consolation prize that puts him behind bars is NOT enough. You deserve more than that.

        Anyone who believed a word that Dunn said is a racist a$$hole. That man lied about everything, tried to drag Jordan’s character through the mud, and counted on a racist jury to just let him go without considering facts and evidence.

        He is an evil man and he is going where he belongs. Being convicted on murder 1 or 2 would not change where he is going to be, but it would sure as hell send a message to those who think like Dunn and Zimmerman.

It bothers me that a black woman standing her ground who shoots in a ceiling is sentenced to prison for 20 years, but white males who kill black male serve no time.

      Dunn kills Jordan Davis, flees from the scene, buys wine and orders pizza, walks the dog, watches TV, leave 185 miles out the state and goes home like nothing happened. Never once dialed 911 or called the non-emergency police number. If the police wouldn’t have went to his house and arrested him, he would go right on acting like nothing happened…business as usual.

    I can’t even put forth a guess on what the verdict might be on counts 2 through 5. My head is spinning from all the guessing.

    But I will say this. If the jury hangs on the first count and a mistrial is declared on that count, it is probably the best possible outcome at this point. The state will re-try the sorry son of a bitch because:
    1. The crime is so egregious.
    2. The victim is a child.
    3. Duval County’s population is almost 40 percent black.

    If someone is holding out for justice, and I hope it is more than just one person, we have to pray that they remain strong against what is without question a racist jury. Hanging on count one is the right thing to do if the others are demanding full out acquittal.

    My nerves are shot.

        I agree X 10. I could live with a conviction on a lesser included charge on count 1 because it still means a long time in prison for Dunn. But full out acquittal is just wrong and it will set the “justice” system back even farther. We will be living in Emmett Till’s America with an SYG enhancement for the white supremacists.

        Given that, a mistrial on count 1 is best.

        My understanding is that they can’t consider a lesser included charge like M2 until they have hung on M1 which they said they have. So, they can now consider the lesser included charges on the first count. If they cannot agree on any lesser included charge for count 1, then it is a mistrial on that count and Dunn can be retried on that count. The DA could also reduce the charge for Dunn’s next trial if they think there is a better chance of conviction.

        The front door holes in the SUV are at a sharper angle towards Dunn’s car. Therefore, I think the SUV was in the process of backing up as the front SUV doors were hit AFTER he had already hit Jordan’s door (the back SUV door.)

        Here is the evidence photo of the SUV:

        I am looking at the possibility that he had his door opened as he SAT shooting those first 7 shots.

        When the SUV was backing up, the SUV’s FRONT passenger door was farther away (EVEN farther away than Jordan’s door HAD been in the ORIGINAL parked position) causing the shots to be angled pointing BACK at Dunn’s gun.
