‘Acted responsibly’

They were black kids and they were playing loud music. BAM! Death penalty, they were asking for it:

Michael David Dunn, 45, was in Jacksonville, Fla., this Friday for his son’s wedding, when afterward he decided to stop at a convenience store with his girlfriend. Four unarmed teenagers were in an SUV near where Dunn parked. After Dunn’s girlfriend went into the store to buy a bottle of wine, Dunn made a comment to the teenagers about their music being too loud. An argument ensued, and then Dunn, a gun collector, pulled out his gun and fired at the SUV between eight to nine times. Two shots hit and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

Jacksonville homicide Lt. Rob Schoonover said:

Our victim was shot a couple of times. …They were listening to the music. It was loud; they [other teens] admitted that. But I mean that is not a reason for someone to open fire on them.

When his girlfriend returned to the car, Dunn drove off, admitting to her that he “fired at these kids.” After hearing a news report that someone died in the shooting at their Jacksonville hotel, the couple returned to their home to Brevard County, Fla. Witnesses of the shooting took down Dunn’s license plate number, which, on Saturday, helped police find Dunn’s house, where he was then arrested.

According to Schoonover, after his arrest, Dunn told Jacksonville detectives, “he felt threatened and that is the reason he took action.”

Because the blacks!

Dunn is being held without bail, and will be transported to a jail in Jacksonville to face charges of murder and attempted murder this week. On Monday, he pleaded not guilty in Brevard County court.

His attorney, Robin Lemonidis, said:

It will be very clear that Mr. Dunn acted very responsibly and as any responsible firearms owner would have acted under these circumstances.

    The only reason he decided to initially engage them in conversation was because he felt he was the bigger man with his gun on him. If he didn’t have his gun, he probably would have rolled up the window.

    “as any responsible firearms owner would have acted”

    Interesting. If that’s true, if even responsible ones can’t help killing anything that moves, then, logically, there can’t be any gun owners.

    I wonder if that’s what he meant.

    Who wants to live in a place, a society where loud music is cause for killing people. In claimed “self defense.”

    Good grief, a stop must be put to this kind of open season on black teens, or on any blacks.

    We need a new Chief Justice on the Supreme Court, as well. This kind of thinking is beyond unreasonable. It is deadly and evil.
