Folks are rather bold these days. I guess we should pull out guns like we would a Visa card. I know some look at blacks like animals in wild, and to that we shake our heads in disgust. The latest murder story below has the same Trayvon Martin type feel to it.
According to the Herald Sun:
A FLORIDA teenager is dead after being gunned down by a man who moments earlier had asked the victim and his friends to turn down the music coming from a car stereo, justice officials said Tuesday.
Jordan Davis, 17, was hit at least twice by bullets fired by Michael Dunn, a 45-year-old businessman who is in custody over the incident which took place on Friday in Jacksonville, said Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant Rob Schoonover.
The shooting occurred after Mr Dunn, who is white, approached Davis, who was black, to complain about loud music coming from the sport utility vehicle (SUV) in which the youngsters were seated.
“Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice. No one else was hurt,” said Lt.Schoonover.
No firearms were found in the victim’s car.
The weird thing is…the man, Mr. Dunn was in town for his son’s wedding.
