Hung Jury in Michael Dunn Trial

Attention middle aged white dudes in Florida with smaller than normal appendages and larger than life guns.

The Florida judicial system has put young black teens in a protected status. They are no longer free to shoot and kill at will.

While this jury ended up being hung on the 1st degree murder charge the finding of guilty on all other charges should put this bum away for the rest of his life.

Personally I accept this as a win for the good guys.

And speaking of good guys; this did not come out in the trial but it has been stated that during the whole incident of the shooting in the parking lot. There were two or three good guys with guns in the same parking lot. Go figure?

Of special interest to me will be the popcorn shooting trial. This one may result in a first degree conviction as the assailant is reported to have left the theatre to get his gun before killing the victim. And even more important is the race of the victim.

Getting back to Michael Dunn here is an interesting video of an interview with a neighbor of Dunn. The video runs for about 34 minutes but will give you some insight into the real Michael Dunn vs. the lying sob on the witness stand.

  1. Under the category of Looney Tunes – this just in: A convicted pimp is attempting to make legal history by suing Nike for $100 million because their shoes do not come with a warning label that they could possibly be used as weapons. He stomped a man bloody with the shoes. Is it something in the water in this country….?

  2. It seems to me that justice has worked pretty well in Florida so far. Zimmerman was found not guilty, an open and shut case of self defense when all the race baiting and propaganda is ignored. Then Dunn is found guilty of attempted murder and no doubt will spend a significant amount of time in jail. Unlike Zimmerman, there was no evidence that Dunn had a reasonable belief that his life was in danger (though no doubt the victims provoked the incident by their behavior and “fighting words.”)

    And in both cases above the police acted correctly. They saw no reason to charge Zimmerman (and the verdict vindicated that) and in the Dunn case they arrested and charged him immediately and now the jury vindicates them also.

    So looks good to me and more proof than ever that stand your ground is reasonable, and that juries generally find the right verdict in these cases.

    As to the “popcorn” ex-police shooter, I have confidence he will be found guilty too, as he probably should be unless there is some evidence that has not come out so far.

    • Personally i disagree with you regarding the Zimmerman verdict. Zimmerman provoked an incident with an unarmed teenager. Resulting in the death of the teen.

      Seems this quote has rattled your cage a bit. Sorry, but oft times facts bother many of those with your mindset.
      Have another good day and don’t forget to wear your kevlar vest while out and about.

        First I doubt you actually have a good grasp on my mindset. I guess you think it perfectly reasonable to theorize on the size of men’s equipment based on how you perceive their views. So how about women who buy guns? Is it a substitute for them to, or a castration fantasy? :)

    • Zimmerman was armed with a lethal weapon and disregarded an order from police dispatch to stand down. His father was a retired magistrate in VA. Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in cold blood when he did not allow the police to handle the matter. To top it off you blame the Jacksonville victims for one of their deaths because of their “behavior and “fighting words.” But if this were one of your children being buried you would move heaven and earth to get justice for your slain child. Stand your ground is lynching for the 21st century. As more and more Americans experience financial hard times due to our “jobless” recovery it is not hard to predict who will bear the brunt of white America’s frustration and impotence.

      • Iwk, I went to your blog so i have very good knowledge of your mindset. I was going to mention women’s reason for buying and carrying guns but overlooked it. For the most part they do so because they have been scared into it by men with small minds among other deficiencies they tend to have. :)

    So was Trayvon, although you may not understand that initially. I have a post on my blog which is mostly just a set of links to articles by Massad Ayoob. He explains in one how Trayvon was beating Zimmerman’s head into a concrete sidewalk – that was at that time a deadly weapon and if Zimmerman had not shot then he could have lapsed into unconsciousness and died.

    Inside the Zimmerman Trial

    http://free2beinamerica2.wordpress.com/2013/08/28/inside-the-zimmerman-trial/

    Masad was an expert witness in the Zimmerman trial and saw it first hand.

    “…and disregarded an order from police dispatch to stand down.”

    Actually that is not exactly correct. A dispatcher, not a police officer, told him he didn’t have to follow. Certainly not a direct order and certainly not an order from a police officer.

    “Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in cold blood …”

    You have no actual physical evidence of that. The actual physical evidence which the jury unanimously believed was that Martin was on top of Zimmerman beating him up “martial arts style” and Zimmerman was in genuine fear of his life.

    “To top it off you blame the Jacksonville victims for one of their deaths because of their “behavior and “fighting words.””

    I have a concealed carry license and an extremely important factor in Texas (and most states) as to whether a self defense claim will stand is whether or not you used “fighting words” which escalated the situation. It is an important factor in the law. If, for example, I use fighting words with someone – call him a MF or SOB – then if he attacks me and I shoot him my self defense claim may not stand in court.

    From the testimony it sounds like the young man who was killed was using a lot of violent and antagonistic language. Of course that doesn’t excuse the guy for shooting him, but it does indicate that such language contributed to the tragedy.

    “Stand your ground is lynching for the 21st century.”

    Baloney. A lot more non-blacks are being beat up and killed by young blacks playing things like the “knock out game” and such. An Afghanistan veteran was severely beaten just the other day and a WWII veteran was killed by young blacks.

    According to FBI stats for 2011 for homicide where the race of the offender was known it was black 52.4% of the time although blacks were less than 14% of the population at the time. Blacks contribute enormously to the violence, crime, and homicides in this country.

    “As more and more Americans experience financial hard times due to our “jobless” recovery it is not hard to predict who will bear the brunt of white America’s frustration and impotence.”

    You can to a large extent blame the Demoncrats for that. You can also blame them for the conditions in many inner cities that have led to the destruction of the black family in the inner city and the resulting catastrophic violence among blacks today in those inner cities.

    You really ought to read the articles I pointed to earlier by Massad. You might learn something useful.

    You don’t know your history very well. The “shall issue” concealed carry movement started back in the 1980s in Florida. Before that it was fairly rare for civilians (other than rich or “connected” ones) to be able to get a concealed carry permit. “Shall issue” means that if you pass the qualifications (no criminal background, no mental issues, and usually take some training) then the state _must_ (“shall”) give you the permit. No discretion is given to a police chief, for example.

    The reason is very simple. When a police chief had to approve they often misused their authority to deny reasonable requests essentially making concealed carry impossible for most (but the rich and “connected”).

    Ok, back to women and Florida. After a lot of attacks on women in public in Florida the first “shall issue” concealed carry law was passed there. As soon as women started carrying small concealable handguns the attacks dropped dramatically.

    Women learned a simple lesson. The only thing they were likely to have that would protect them from a big, hairy guy was a gun. In the famous words of some 19th century sage, “God made man and Colonel Colt made them equal.” That is true in spades for women.

    I have been going to gun ranges for near half a century. Used to be a pretty masculine place. Not any more. Tons of women there now and they are one of the fastest growing groups buying guns for the first time.

    Maybe a modern saying could be “God made girls and Glock made them equal.” :)

    “…among other deficiencies they tend to have”

    Good enough to father three great kids. One is currently a U.S. Marine and I would not advise you to say that to him. :)

    • I would need some documentation re women being attacked and a drop in the attacks. “God made man and a Colonel colt made them equal” is one of the saddest statements i have ever heard. If you think having a gun makes you something you are not, you are a prime example of the likes of Michael Dunn. He thought he was superior to others and the gun made him super superior. If you have like feelings, you are probably on someones watch list or at least should be.
      But then needing a gun to make you equal ties in with my diminished winky dinky statement.

        The fact, and that is the essence of the Colonel Colt statement, is that without weapons like firearms the small and weaker members of society will always be dominated by the large and physically strong. The only thing that a 90 lb woman is likely to have to even the odds against a 230 lb man intent on raping or murdering here. If find that concept offensive then that is truly sad.

        I rescind the previous statement, “regards.”

Your imaginary 230 pound rapist is part of the technique used by the NRA to strike fear into the ignorant.
        Sorry you feel that way.

    Different subject altogether.

    “Your imaginary 230 pound rapist is part of the technique used by the NRA to strike fear into the ignorant.”

    Well apparently a lot of intelligent women have a different opinion. Some of them know exactly what it feels like to be attacked by men larger and stronger.

    “Sorry you feel that way.”

    And I am sorry that you have a prejudice against people defending themselves and having adequate means to do so.

    • Yes, a lot of women do know what it is liked to be attacked by men larger and stronger. They also know what it is like to be paid less than larger and stronger men, are you suggesting a move for equality of the sexes? In all areas? Or are you just trying to sell more guns?
      Define adequate means.
