Dunn Murder Case Ends in Mistrial

A north Florida jury convicted Dunn on Saturday of three counts of attempted murder for opening fire on a car of black teenagers during an argument over loud rap music, but could not reach a verdict on a murder charge for the killing of a 17-year-old in the car.

    Another stellar example of Florida's criminal justice system. Michael Dunn, a 47-year-old man who fired shots on a car of unarmed teenagers and killed a passengers, has been found guilty of three counts of attempted murder, but a jury came to a mistrial on the murder count. Dunn, who is white, said he didn't like the “thug” music of the teenagers, who were African-American, and fired nine shots at the car, three of which struck then 17-year-old Jordan Davis who was in the backseat. Dunn will still face at least 60 years in prison, but the mistrial echoes the tensions over race and self-defense that Florida dealt with most recently with the Trayvon Martin trial. Assistant State Attorney Angela Corey said she plans to re-try Dunn for first-degree murder.
