White Man Shoots And Kills Black Student In Florida After Argument Over Loud Music
 
Quote:

Less than nine months after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in central Florida, another black teenage student was killed under suspicious circumstances.

Michael David Dunn, a 45-year-old vice president of Dunn & Dunn Data Systems in Vero Beach, was in Jacksonville this past weekend for his son’s wedding. The Orlando Sentinel details what happened on Friday when Dunn, a gun collector, encountered Jordan Russell Davis, a student at nearby magnet school Samuel W. Wolfson High:
Quote:

Jordan Russell Davis, 17, and several other teenagers were sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot when Dunn pulled up next to them in a car and asked them to turn down their music, [Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob] Schoonover said.

Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice, Schoonover said. Jordan was sitting in the back seat. No one else was hurt.Dunn’s attorney Monday said her client acted responsibly and in self-defense. She did not elaborate.

I must admit excessively loud noise when I'm not expecting it sets me off as do bright lights. I'm glad I don't carry a handgun. A longer weapon makes you stop and think...I think :unsure

I found this quite disturbing in the comments section:
...folks, take a long hard look at Mr. Michael David Dunn, note the physical characteristics: over 40, caucasian, angry looking. There are thousands if not millions of these guys, all over America and they are known to be heavily armed and accustomed to deference in police matters. They feel entitled, resentful of losing an election, and are certain that even without weapon or provocation, an Obama voter is a threat to them. They are bigots. They are losers. They are the worst kind of cowards and they shoot to kill.

Despicable act by someone who should never have had a gun. Despicable comments by people who don't even pretend to understand anybody not living in a liberal paradise.

Headlines that accent a person's skin color are just wanting the racial inflamation.....

Using a gun to settle a matter of this sort is sad. People who would do this sort of thing most likely are unbalanced to begin with. It wouldn't have mattered the particular inceident, something would have set him off. If he didn't have a gun, he would have used whatever was handy.

The moronic comments are from people who must be angry themselves. People who believe they know the minds of others, like this, make me laugh.

I fail to understand the necessity of the race adjectives in the headline.

Hate crime?

Unfortunately, any schmuck with a gun can shoot people these days and get away with it.

At the very least, you have to admit the shooter had a disproportionate response to loud music.

If a black man had shot a white student, or a black man had shot a black guy, or a black man had shot a Hispanic student, would it be any worse or better? Is it more or less acceptable? It almost seems that a white man killing a black student is worse than someone being killed over music to begin with.

That would be the indication from the headline.

The black white reference was unnecessary, I agree. It's because of the Trayvon Martin case and the similarities.

The headline should read stupid out of control man shoots teenage kid over loud music.

I think some racist whites needed the story to highlight the racial aspects.

I hope they throw the book at this hothead.

This psycho only proves that no idiot can be prevented from causing mayhem and murder, even with tens of thousands of laws telling him NO!
