Verdict Watch – Open Discussion – Sat.

Tomorrow, Feb. 16, 2014,

would have been Jordan’s 19th birthday.

Jordan Davis RIP

On Friday, the jurors had a question that has resulted in a wave of speculation.  They asked;

“Is it possible to not reach a verdict on one count and reach a verdict on other counts?”

The Honorable Judge Healey’s answer is “yes.”

Judge Healey also had Dunn take oath and asked if he understood the question.  Dunn stated that he did not. Judge Healey explained the question and possibilities to Dunn.  This is important because there are already some people arguing that if the jury finds that Dunn committed justifiable homicide,  then all other charges are dismissed.  (This type of argument can be seen in the comment section on croakerqueen123’s Youtube channel.)

Judge Healey explained the law, and State’s Attorney Corey and defense attorney Strolla both agreed.

Below is the video of the two questions.

However if you look at the Durango with the dowel’s thru the holes in the door, I have questions about the sequence of the shots…

          • I agree that Dunn was seated for the first 7 shots….but could he have had his door opened while seated and shooting those 7 shots.

            The front door holes in the SUV are at a sharper angle towards Dunn’s car. Therefore, I think the SUV was in the process of backing up as the front SUV doors were hit AFTER he had already hit Jordan’s door (the back SUV door.)

            When the SUV was backing up, the SUV’s FRONT passenger door was farther away (EVEN farther away than Jordan’s door HAD been in the ORIGINAL parked position) causing the shots to be angled pointing BACK at Dunn’s gun.

            It is looking as if we might have a hung jury.

    • Yahtzee, Let’s think about something for just a moment, ok? If the rounds thru the rear door were made first and the Durango began backing at five mph and there was a one second lull before the second round was discharged, the Durango would have moved approx. 7 1/2 feet. Is the angle of the trajectory correct assuming the vehicles were approx. 3 feet apart to start with? My thought is that the trajectory is not angled enough for the second set to have been the front door, but then again it is very possible that I am incorrect… Do the math and see what you come up with…

  13. Croakerqueen123 on you tube has hearing up now.

    First, Corey, wisely, asked for Judge to reread justifiable use of force law again to jury. In order, hopefully, to connect judge believes this. Judge correctly denied this with extensive explanation.

    Three jury questions:
    1.Then can jury CONSIDER justifiable use of deadly force and self defense as to count 1
    Judge..yes can be considered. Just saying jury can Consider this. Not that it is applicable.

    2. Question. Can justifiable use of deadly force and self defense be considered in other car occupants.
    Judge…yes
    Each charge is to be considered separately as a separate offense/ defense.again, just saying the legal statue allows for this to be CONSIDERED.

    3. Questions…can they be intertwined. Translation can they consider Jordan started it and Dunn can argue this is justifiable for remainder of shots.
    Judge…NO

    Corey and state agreed to approve these to answer questions presented this morning by jury

    Dunn protested..what an idiot…in open court that it was all intertwined and should not therefore be considered as discreet actions on his part.

    Judge respectfully listened and explained why he was denying.

    Dunn lost this morning. He wants his ridiculous pretend gun to be used as his defense to blowing away or attempting to blow everyone in car and this was denied.

    I don’t understand why Fred’s law log doesn’t explain this cause they are thinking it means exactly the slam dunk for Dunn and it doesn’t.

    Corey must be furious at his client because Dunn objected in open court and he was shot down in open court and on the record.
    Dunn did not get what he so clearly and stupidly has now entered into open record , e.g., his objection that evidence of no gun caused him to justifiable open fire.

    If the murder 1 is hung and state retries, this will be admitted into evidence against him.

    Last bit, Florida has 10-20 for using gun in commission of a felony. If he is only convicted on counts 2-5 that is 60 yrs for counts 2-4 ( not sure time on 5) and with his age of 47 add 60 yrs. and he’s gone for life.

  16. Thank you, Yahtzz!
    It is mind boggling to me that leatherman’s blog does not explain what is issue. People were hearing it ” applies” and believing the Judge was, in essence, telling the jury how to render the verdict. When the question was ” can the statue of justifiable and self defense apply to consideration of the counts separately or can they be woven as one.

    Why this ” lawyer” did not explain Judges do not instruct jury’s on a verdict. They instruct only on the legal statue. State and defense attorneys argue the issues and the jury then makes their decision.

    The judge does not tell a jury how to apply their verdict.
    Hope I’m making sense but he would /should be able to clearly differentiate what the questions and judge’s response mean to his blog followers.

    • I’ve watched the video of the question and discussions a second time. Since the jury is still out, there are several considerations, the first being that the judge’s answer did not help the jury reach a verdict because the question was not intended to help them reach a verdict.

      What I suspect is that the question was presented by the one or several jurors who want to acquit Dunn of all charges and was being used to go back to the first count to re-argue that if they determine he is not guilty of murder, then there is no need to discuss the other counts.

      Judge Healey’s answer in a nutshell is “no,” that each count is separate. He was very exact in his discussions before the jury came in to hear the answers that the “law requires” that each count is considered separately.

      For Dunn’s position, he is trying to transform the trial into a SYG immunity hearing on the basis that if he was justified in killing Jordan, that he is immune for the other charges. So, let’s go back to what SA Corey argued; i.e., that there were 3 volleys of gunshots. My paraphrase — if Dunn was justified in the first volley, it doesn’t mean that he was justified in the second and third volley of gunshots. Judge Healey agreed.

      IMHO, the jury is hung on count 1, and because of that, someone on the jury is trying to convince the others that the trial was actually a SYG immunity hearing so that other counts would not be considered and they would be hung on those as well. At the same time, someone on the jury is arguing that if Dunn was not justified in using deadly force against the other three in the vehicle, then it demonstrates his state of mind in firing the first 3 shots, and that takes them back to square one of count 1.

          We saw it during voir dire in Zimmerman’s trial. Black men have no problem saying that they disagree with SYG, and that killing eliminates the only other witness.

          Then too, in counties where Blacks are minorities, and Black men are less in population, they make up a very small number of those summoned to appear for jury duty. Add to that the number of minorities in jail or prison and those without driver licenses or who cannot register to vote because of having felony arrests. Add to this the number of Black men who are on active military duty because of the lack of jobs and inability to pay tuition to attend college.

          Trickle-down institutionalized racism makes sure that there are less Black men available to serve on juries.

        That’s a hard call for State cases. According to his Facebook, Dunn is a sovereign citizen. There’s no law against that. Under the federal system, that would come into play as his ideologies formed his mindset to commit murder. So it comes down to a murder being a murder being a murder without the racial reasons that are relevant in committing a hate-crime under the federal system.

        What she doesn’t seem to understand is that racists will be racists regardless and forcing them to see it won’t change anything.

        No prosecutor can actually put racism on trial. It’s always the act that harmed or destroyed that is placed on trial. Please understand that I’m not disagreeing with you. It’s a matter of having a government and laws that do not cross that line of being thought police.

        I can only image that the juror who was ex-military with the eleven children was the one who lead the not guilty group and he may have been the foreman.

        It’s been reported that juror 7 was the foreperson. I don’t yet know who that was.

        That was a Hail Mary on Dunn’s part but the fact is the jurors who didn’t believe Dunn was guilty of murdering Jordan believed that black teenagers are THUGS first, second and last.

        It’s a package deal. In the same manner, it was said after the Civil War that White men were responsible for protecting White women from “savages.” And, let’s not forget that before that, Native Americans were called “uncivilized savages” for the same reason. The dog whistles and terms change, but the idea is still the same.

        I bet Rhonda was sweating bullets wondering if Dunn got off would come after her himself or hire a hit man to punish her for betraying him.

              I agree, but there’s SYG with language that conveys there’s no need to do what is reasonable to avoid confrontation. That law renders murder 1 impotent because it provides for people to remain under circumstances and respond with deadly force.

              Think of that law — it says that people don’t have the duty to retreat. They can stand and provoke conditions for a second, a minute or longer, then say it wasn’t premeditated because the other person was threatening them all the time until they felt they had no choice but to defend themselves.

        you make an excellent point there, roderick. i am by no means a corey fan, frankly, some of her decisions baffle me. her total reluctance to bring race into the open is on the top of my list. i am very curious as to what is behind this — we have seen it twice and it is deliberate. i am willing to believe that bringing it into the fray runs a very real risk of alienating a portion of the jury who would like to think that they are not racist but who are in denial (a pattern i see far too often in my visits to southern states). this is just a guess on my part, but as i say i am baffled and curious.

        i think the real big problems that any SA would have in these cases are what you mentioned (judicial bias) as well as bad/intensely confusing self defense laws. i mean, really, the way these instructions are written for self defense, if a defendant is completely delusional and sees imaginary weapons, jurors are to assume that the fear was real. well, being raised by an occasionally delusional bi polar — yes, his fears were very real *but to him only*. how in the name of all that is holy should a society be forced by state law to accept delusion as a defense to murder? that is sick.

        although politically on the national front, florida is a swing state that leans left, at the state level, it is solid red due to district drawing shenanigans. i have to say, i do not really see any end in sight with horrific self defense laws and jury instructions as a result. i wish i could be more optimistic.

        i will be clear though — i think the prosecution fought to win this one. there may be some things i’d question, but overall, their case was tight and well run. it’s the other variables (juror bias, SYG, jury instructions) which lead to the major chaos.

        YES! Let the person in the black robe present the questions and suggest answers to the attorneys and answer the questions. Kudos to the foreperson for presenting the questions. It also helped us, the public, to hear the answers and understand the process and the law.

      Joseph, he worried me when I read his biography.

      He’s probably a gun nut and quite conservative and probably very religious since he had eleven children.

    • Sending my thanks to the jurors who made it possible for there to be a retrial on Count 1.

      May Dunn be sentenced to the max on the other four counts.

      Jordan, I will be watching the retrial and praying that you receive the justice that you deserve.

  43. GO JOSEPH GO!!! You clever man!!
    Counts 2,3,4 minimum 20 years each=60 years
    Count 5 –up to 15 years

    75 years plus his miserable 47.

    No reaction from him. No change of expression that I could see.
    There is a memorial event planned tomorrow in honor of his 19 th birthday.
    RIP dear boy.

  44. The sentencing is set for march but oh my Strolla may ” have other plans” like rebuilding his miserable law practice.
    Recognizing he had no case, he still was a truly horrible lawyer and the public got to see this toad in action.

    • Did Strolla say that?? I don’t guess O’Mara would take the case now, after having said publicly that he believed Done would be found Guilty.. What’s Baez up to these days? Wonder what his take is on this case…

  46. Well Guys…I was praying for a birthday gift of getting JUSTICE for this CHILD Jordan! I have had it with these people(I am still trying to be lady like) killing our Black children! Everybody can keep screaming about they got it right because of how the LAWS are written.I guess we need to throw away these laws & replace them with others.
    This makes no sense to me, how these jurors can convict Dunn for attempted murder of the other boys,but NOT convict this same person for killing Jordan b/c of how some damn law! I just watched Ms Corey say she will re try the case.She needs to wait & see if she still has a job! This NUTCASE not only killed this child,but left the scene,ordered pizza,had himself a comfy evening(it didn’t seem to bother him either that he killed a child) was NOT going to tell anyone,etc.He is Racist…read his letters or just listen to him.Why are our White children any better than our White ones ? For some reason in our country Black lives just don’t seem to matter is how I’m feeling right now.Just flip this situation & see how fast Jordan would be put away for MURDER 1!
    At this moment I don’t think I would care to hear the reason they voted this way.Another thing I am sick of is how hard everyone worked on these cases….isn’t this your job?
    I will shut up for a few minutes & come back later.

    • Marilyn,
      Dunn put his story together based on what he heard in the media, and while he was driving home. He also built his story on his interpretation of SYG. Just look at how he tried arguing with Judge Healey over the jury’s question. Evidently, Dunn thought that his trial on 5 counts was a SYG immunity hearing, and if the jury found him not guilty on the first count, they would have to find him not guilty on the other four.

      Dunn never said, nor testified, that he felt any threat from anyone other than Jordan. That is what nailed his coffin on the attempted murder charges.

  47. Good morning all!

    There was a march to AC’s office demanding her resignation. Both sides hate her. She caused this hung verdict by overcharging with premeditation, which is a requirement to be convicted of murder1.

    Premeditation can be as little as one second under the statue but that is surely a reach for a fair and just jury so murder2 was never explained to jury and that became a real conundrum for them. It hung them and if I were on that jury, I would be unable to find guilty as to premeditation, legally that is.

    He was looking for trouble as shown by pulling in beside the car with music playing when there were parking spots further down. Waited for honey pot to enter store and started what he was going to finish immediately.

    She told detective he kept saying he was in fear for his life which is textbook words to begin a SYG explanation. No one says I was in fear for my life if they were actually in fear. More along, OMG, scared shitless or terrified.

    I am also wondering why state did not charge him with buying wine from a gas station…maybe it is only a misdemeanor but still it has to be looked into. They totally blew that. 😉
