Verdict Watch – Open Discussion – Friday

The jury re-convenes at 9 a.m. EST.  Click here for a livestream.  The link has been very good to bring up live feed whenever the judge enters the courtroom for a matter that involves the jury.

In response to defense attorney Strolla’s press conference yesterday, attorney John Phillips released a video of an interview with one of Dunn’s former neighbors.  John Phillips is the attorney who represents Jordan Davis’ parents. That, and Dunn’s letters from jail, are hot topics.

Click here for Dunn’s letters from jail.

    On page 2 he says “The more time I am exposed to these people, the more prejudiced against them I become.” and “I sure am looking forward to moving out of the South and away from the scourge of this country.”

    This is not about Dunn being in fear for his life. This is about Dunn having such a sense of self importance and sense of superiority that he became enraged over the idea that a young Black teen would dare to disrespect him.

If this attention whore does not get the attention he seeks, one of two things will happen. He will either slink off into the sunset or he will do something that will get him finally put away, hopefully without hurting/killing someone else. Either way, he needs to be stopped.

    Thank you for sharing the link for the interview petition, once again signed and shared, every step he tries to make to glorify and profit off the murder of Martin must be monitored and stopped. Get a regular job like everyone else, or is he too good for actual work? He needs to pull himself up by his bootstraps, stop relying on handouts, etc etc etc. The article on MotherJones, about 21 things you cannot do while black is a necessary share especially for young blacks, as we have found in our teaching they do not realize that they are not exisiting a post racial society. They have a tendency to think these are isolated issues, and do not have the ability to connect the dots, because they do not and have not been educated about systematic racism. Thank you for the share, and everyone’s continued struggle for a better society. I am afraid that Dunn will walk, the delay in a verdict is not a good sign. Like one of my good friends said today, “whites live under a justice system, and we live under a legal system”

      Don’t know if it’s legal to have silencers in Florida. To the best of my knowledge, Dunn was not charged for having a silencer.

      Like

      • It is legal ONLY if one ‘buys’ the permit through the NFA. It is a felony to be in possession of one without having a permit. There was a silencer in the trunk of his car when he was arrested. $200 is what it costs to get a permit.

  17. Dunn jury has now been out longer than the Zimmerman jury.

    Noting that, HLN talking heads are speculating about a hung jury or an acquittal.

    One of the ‘legal experts’ suggests the older white men on the jury may be holding out for acquittal because they too hate loud rap music, and host V. Politan suggests the younger jurors may be more inclined to convict because they’re OK with contemporary popular music.

    • whonoze,
      Just think what would have happened had Maddy Juror B29 kept to her decision? We would have had a hung jury in Zimmerman’s case.

      When the Dunn jury asked for the Gate video, it gave me the impression that there are a few jurors who, going into deliberations, voted not guilty. That video was to watch for the timing and hear the gunshots to convince them that things did not happen the way Dunn testified and his attorney represented to the jury.

      I’m hoping that’s the case and those finding that the evidence is that Dunn is guilty are not bending to those who had or have less interest in evidence and facts.

      • I’m hoping the jury didn’t ask for the video to try and discredit the witness who said he had walked out the door of the Gate and stated he heard Dunn say “you’re not going to talk to me like that” as I think Strolla made a point of saying the guy never heard that, as it had been like 40 seconds from the time the guy left the counter til the shooting started. Out of the 5 charges, I wonder which one (s) they are deadlocked on?

          Strolla got his times confused. When I watched that portion of the video, it was about 40 seconds from the time that the driver left the cash register to when the shots were fired. That other witness was at the register after the driver, and Dunn’s girlfriend after him.

          Out of the 5 charges, I wonder which one (s) they are deadlocked on?

          I was just getting ready to watch the video of jury instructions again. That might help us get a very close speculation. Be back shortly.

        Is it possible not to reach a verdict on one count but can on other counts?

        Yes. Remember the Morgan case reported here? The first jury found him not guilty on assault and not guilty of firing a weapon, but hung on the murder charge. On retrial of the murder charge, the judge did not allow the second jury to know the findings of the first jury, violating double jeopardy.

There are those here who truly believe that no matter what the situation, that White is always Right. It’s sickening. If the victim didn’t ‘have it coming’ it’s still the fault of the other man through the actions of others in their communities.
