An imperfect verdict.

The mother of Jordan Davis says that she will pray for her son's killer in an eloquent and passionate press conference, after her son's killer was found not guilty of his murder by a jury made up mostly of his peers.


She said that she felt sorry for him that he will have to spend the rest of his life being remorseful for her son's killing.


I watched this trial from the start, and I wish I could say that I am surprised.


The lives of young black men in this country (especially in places like Florida) just doesn't matter that much. Sadly, some will argue, that young black males themselves are to blame for this. They kill each other in such record numbers that others feel like when a young black life is lost it is no more meaningful than the death of a family pet.


But this is a chicken and egg question; because when the justice system finds it necessary to treat the killers of young black men differently than they do others, we all see it. And we all know the deal. The system sends a message to all of us.


"But Field, the man is looking at 60-90 years in jail, what more do you want?"


Well yes. But this is because Mr. Dunn chose to fire a second volley of shots into the SUV on that fateful night. He was charged and convicted of attempted murder of the other boys who actually lived. That is why he is going to probably spend the rest of his life in prison, not because he shot an innocent young black male in cold blood.


Following the logic of the verdict, if he had shot and killed all the young men in the car that night he would be a free man.


Angela Corey, the incompetent state attorney in Florida, says that her office is going to retry Mr. Dunn on the first degree murder charge.


I hope that she does. Because the parents of this young man deserve closure.   


I am listening to Don Lemon (My current HNOTD) go off on CNN about the verdict and the fact that Mr. Dunn was not found guilty of gunning down Jordan Davis. "This is absolutely about race, and it makes me angry" he says. "It's time for some real talk about the elephant in the room and what type of message this sends to society at large."


The irony of this is, of course, that folks like Lemon contributed to this climate in our country. He did by constantly declaring that folks who see race in everything doth protest too much.


Tonight, I think that even Don will agree that maybe we need to protest a little more.


"We are so grateful for the charges that have been brought against him,.... "We are so grateful for the truth. We are so grateful that the jurors were able to understand the common sense of it all."


You might be "grateful" Ms. McBath, but I am not. Because in the very near future, there will be another mother grieving the loss of her son just like you.

Dunn wan not found "not guilty"; the jury did not render a verdict on that count.

When you start your post with an obvious lie, you tend to lose credibility. Not that you had much to start with.

I don't know what happened that night, but I have to trust the jury made its decision in good faith, and Mr. Dunn deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison.

But the whole reason this story was national news was to keep the plantation riled up. And that it did.

Time to find a new story.

Right. No one ever heard of Trayvon Martin or Jordan Davis.

Black suffering is all we hear about 24/7, 365 days per year.

You sure love to suck on chocolate salty balls, don't you Whitey?

BKR said...

Not surprised by this verdict. I suspected that a "diverse" jury would never convict Dunn of first degree murder.

Unless there is an all black jury, Dunn will never be convicted of murder in any degree. Whites are incapable of doing there civic duty when it comes to sitting in judgement of their own when the accused is tried for killing a black.

The Zimmerman trial demonstrated that.

Next, the sentencing will be another slap in the face. Dunn will serve no more than 10 years in prison, be credited with the time served in jail, and be released in good behavior.

Amen Field,

What they did was throw out a pacifier by saying look he's going to jail for a long, long time, but not for killing Jordan Davis. Those folks in Florida don't want to give up their right to kill any black child they see and claim syg.

I refuse to compromise with the life of an innocent black child and accept a pacifier. They can keep their pacifier and do what is right and fair, justice for Jordan. DUNN IS GUILTY! Black children have just as much right to walk the streets unhampered without some gun nut using them for target practice.

My prayers are with Jordan's family and that the Lord gives them strength.

ThatDeborahGirl said...

Follow that logic a little further and it's almost like the jury punished him for not killing the other people in the car.

@ThatDeborahGirl,

Good point! One to take into consideration since killing an innocent black child does not rate a guilty verdict, but shooting at black kids and missing does. Smh!

A new story won't be long in coming. It's open season on bm and Whites justify their killings because they are afraid of angry bm.

Ever think of taking some psychotherapy about those imagined fears? Oh wait, the therapist is afraid too...never mind. The only answer to this is to just keep on shooting bm dead at the moment fear arises.

There is no hope for this country.

It is not. It was Blacks that just closed down the entire state for usual wilding and violence and not one was shot.

It is blacks who rob, rape old women maim, steal and few are shot.

It is blacks who play the knockout game like savages do and few are shot.

ohioprole said...

A vicious crime was certainly committed, but perhaps the problem is that the DA overcharged by going for First Degree Murder. Doesn't First Degree Murder require pre-meditation in Florida? Maybe second degree murder is the appropriate charge and would have brought a conviction.



field negro said...

It does require "pre-meditation" , and I saw it in his actions. There is no set time limit for pre-meditation.

And yes, there was a mistrial on the first count and not a "not-guilty" verdict by the court. But my argument still stands: In the mind of one or more on that jury, he was not guilty of first degree murder of Jordan Davis.

If I were from some other country and read the mainstream media, I would be well informed enough to know that these white people are out to get blacks. I would know to stay clear of violent, prejudiced white neighborhoods where people are killed all the time for little reason. I would know to go to peaceful black neighborhoods, where there is no prejudice and people don't act on impulses.

The trajectory of the bullets don't match up to the story told by the prosecution.

The bullets that hit Davis came in at nearly a 90 degree angle from a shooter with less than a 45 degree angle.

Based on the testimony of the teens in the SUV and the angle of the bullet holes, it is clear that the door of Davis was indeed open and not closed due to a "child lock" as the teens stated.

That is consistent with what the defense said, that Davis repeatedly threatened to kill Dunn and was trying to exit the SUV to carry out his death threat when he was shot.

lilacpr2000 said...

So, what it boils down to is that
it's the kids words against his, and they are choosing to believe him???

Or rather say 'they aren't sure whether they or he is telling the truth'!!!

A man that just left a party where he was drinking rum and coke. and where most likely he re-lived many bad memories of unpleasant times with the ex's, even though they denied it. and where he was probably snubbed by the ex-wife and who knows who else, which is why they left early, not the dog, and where most likely his rage was fueled by the liquor!

But nooo, let's not believe the kids....noooo, let's believe the angry, aggressive, bully, drunk who was already pissed and took it out on the music and the kids.

By the way, does anybody else notice ho much he sounds like Truman Capote? Lisp and all?


St. Skittles said...

What does showing pictures of cute little black kids have to do regarding how we react to feral teen punks like Jordan Davis?

It's a disingenuous tactic like the media using pictures of Trayvon Martin from when he was 12 rather the ones that showed him as the 17 year old thug he was.

Chicago said...

If the NYT were to catalogue all the black-on-white murders, rapes, robberies, assaults that happen around the country they'd have little space left to squeeze in their stories about gay marriage and open borders. It'd just be one big thick crime blotter. Not having been on the jury to listen to the testimony I wouldn't make snap judgements about what the verdict should have been. Telling blacks to turn down their loud music or to stop trashing the place is apparently a very dangerous thing to do in today's America. Telling some Swedes something like that would not likely result in a shooting or stabbing, not that they would be doing something like that to begin with. This'll serve as more fuel for the knockout "game" in the coming warmer weather, not that they need any more encouragement as it is since they're just doing what they want to do anyway.

Zimmerman called the cops. Dunn left the scene. Zimmerman was sober. Dunn was drunk. Zimmerman was physically assaulted and had the bloody bruises to prove it. Dunn just claimed he was threatened with no corroborating evidence. The best witness supported Zimmerman's story. All the eyewitnesses (admittedly not unbiased) said Dunn was lying.

Svigor said...

Trayvon chose his fate. Why is it so hard for so many people to admit that? That he got what he had coming that night. Yes, if you find yourself on top of a man, pummeling his head into the concrete in a fight you started, you deserve any holes you get in your chest as a result.

This case was very different, From what I can tell, Dunn seems to be unable to navigate a world where he can obtain a fire arm, so I think jail is a good place for him.

10:40 PM
------------------
Come on PilotX, it depends on where you are standing that determines which angle is greater. For instance, take a circle with a 90 degree angle. Now add a 45 degree angle to it. I'll do the math for you: It becomes 135 angle. Or, if you divide 90 degrees in half, which what you did, you get two 45 degree angles. So it depends on where you are standing. You leftist dems kill me with your math.

This man is White, and that carries weight in our justice system. You live in PR where everybody is treated fairly in the PR system because everybody is PR.

In America, esp in Florida, Whites come first, Blacks come last. That's 'why' Dunn could not, and will not be convicted of 1st degree murder. I think everyone in America knows that.

Look at Oakland and unarmed Oscar Grant who was shot in the back by a WHITE police officer. Did the policeman get tried for 1st degree murder? 2nd degree murder?

NOPE. The cop went to jail for approximately 2 years! Oakland is no better than Florida. I am surprised Granny never mentioned this.

"In America, esp in Florida, Whites come first, Blacks come last."

You often see people whining about crime stories only being covered by the MSM because the victim was a "pretty dead white girl." Well, I know of quite a few murders that weren't given much if any national coverage with a pretty white girl as the victim.

Namely, Channon Christian, Lauren Burk, Eve Marie Carson, Anne Pressly and numerous others. Why? The killers didn't look like Scott Peterson or Joran Van Der Sloot.

The murders of Eve Carson and Anne Pressly received some national coverage when they occured, but the stories were dropped by the MSM when the perpetrators turned out to be the Usual Suspects.

The Color of Crime said...

Stories like Trayvon and Dunn get bandied about as if these stories were indicative of reality. They very well could be indicative of reality, but one could never infer reality from these "stories." Reality is to be found in the meticulously bland number crunching of our nation's crime statisticians. It's unfortunate, then, that people would rather read the affirmative-action-rate writings of a black nationalist than the intimidating PDF files posted online by our government, detailing precisely the over representation of blacks as offenders.

The Color of Crime is Black.

If you are tired of your children being statistics, change that.

The Daily Mail has a current story of a black male homeowner in Arkansas, 48, shooting to death a black teen girl, 15, who was part of a group that egged his car. They posed no threat and were driving away. He's been charged but there's no doubt there will never be followup stories in the US media since he's black and thus the story has no utility.

Ever take geometry?

Then draw another chord perpendicular to the chord. You will get a 90 degree angle within the circle... Even Whites who live in trailor parks know this...
