Florida Man Shoots and Kills 17-year-old Teen Over Loud Music
It’s happened again! Upset about Trayvon Martin? Read this story! Michael Dunn, 45, shot and killed teen Jordan Davis in Jacksonville on Friday according to police and the New York Daily News. His lawyer said he acted in self-defense, strikingly familiar to the Trayvon Martin case. The man asked a group of teens at a gas station to turn down the loud music blaring from their car and, after an exchange of words, opened fire on the vehicle, killing a 17-year-old boy.
The alleged murder happened as Dunn and his girlfriend were traveling to Jacksonville for his son’s wedding. They pulled into a gas station parking lot and stopped next to an SUV, which Davis was sitting in with three other teens. While his girlfriend was inside the store, Dunn asked the teens to turn down the loud music they were playing. Then Davis said something back and there was a heated exchange, Dunn then pulled a gun and fired at least eight shots, hitting Davis twice. The shooting immediately drew comparisons to the murder of Trayvon Martin in February, which sparked protests over Florida’s self defense laws and accusations that George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot him, was a racist. Guess we’ll have to see how this upsetting turn of events turns out. Anything like the Martin case, and this country will explode! Why can’t we just get along?
