    White Man Shoots Black Teen Because His Music Was Too Loud, Uses “Stand Your Ground”

    Sign in to disable this ad
    A Florida teen lost his life after being shot over the weekend, allegedly because his music was too loud. Jordan Russell Davis, 17, was gunned down by 45-year-old Michael Dunn following a verbal exchange.
    The unarmed teen who was with his friends at a gas a station in Jacksonville, refused to turn his music down, which led to him being shot by Dunn at least “eight or nine times.”

    Dunn told police that the group was blasting the music in their car, which was adjacent to his vehicle. After having words, he asserts that he was in fear for his life and used his gun under the “stand your ground” law. “He got threatened and had to do what he had to do, and it's sad, so sad,” his daughter told a local new station. “A terrible tragedy on both sides. It really is. I don't know. What are you going to do in that situation? You don't know what you are going to do. He just reacted.”

    No gun pulled but he felt threatened? I also heard the teen was still in the vehicle, in the backseat at that (this could be wrong).
    I saw a girl texting & driving the other day & it really made me mad, so I rolled down my window & threw my whiskey flask at her.

    They really need to tighten up the language of that law or just do away with it completely because what's threatening to me could be totally innocent to the next man. Besides if the law stands with the way it is right now then. I can see so may people using to justify murder

    I don't see the necessity of the law, common sense knows self-defense when it sees it. It really comes off as a way for someone to exercise self-offense instead of self-defense. Essentially looking for trouble instead of trying to avoid it. In this case all because someone wouldn't turn their music down. SMH. You shouldn't be able to kill someone just for being a douche. Sadly nothing will change. People are going to make a goofy RIP post on Facebook, burn one and forget it ever happened.

    Seems like some white people see blacks as over mighty predators that will rape your daughter and steal your wife if you don't shoot them immediately

    Everyone's comments are wll put. Like Casso said, this does more to justify self-offense than self-defense. I'm from Florida and this "law" has to either be done away with or rewritten like Kelevra said. Not a month goes by that I don't hear this law mentioned.

    I'm embarrased to be an American with these NRA idiots (and others) still defending this law.

    Under this law, as long as it's just you and one other person in a given area, no potential witnesses around, I have a right to kill you (and vice-versa) if I make up some excuse to feel threatened by your presence.

    I could kill the neighborhood ice cream man stating that I felt threatened when he reached underneath the window to go grab my ice cream, I thought he was gonna pull out a gun so I killed him.

    So long as nobody is around to see it, and it's just us 2, it's just me vs. a dead body left to defend itself. The killer will walk away free everytime...

    Just saw these numbers. Check this: When using the Stand Your Ground defense in court...

    People who have used it in the killing of a black person have walked away free 73% of the time.
    People who have used it in the killing of a white person have walked away free 59% of the time.

    Sound like some Jim Crow s---. Not safe to be a brotha in Florida.
