Michael Dunn Retrial – Day 2

Good morning caterpillars, butterflies, moths, and all creatures great and small!

We’re following the Michael Dunn retrial.

Yesterday consisted mostly of State prosecutors going in chronological order of witnesses on the scene and law enforcement that first reported on the scene.  Click here to watch videos of yesterday’s hearing.

Judge Healey plans to hold court on Saturday because the jury is sequestered.

    OK, trial is over, the black kid cursed at the “White Male” in the black car… Everyone know that if a “black kid” curses a “White Male” he should be murdered.. Wow, I can’t believe the defense is going this direction. Of course that is the only defense that Dunn has, the black kid disrespected him..

        fauxmccoy, Great mind on your end, on my end not quite so! While we don’t like the tactic that Dunn’s defense attorney is using, it is probably the only defense that he has. What (IMO) she is doing is trying to reach one of the male jurors that might have been (at least in their mind) disrespected by a black kid at some time in their life. Even the closet racist feels that they are owed respect by black people because of their superior abilities! The bad part is that it will possibly work due to the composition of the jury… I don’t think ever Dunn thinks he can be acquitted of the charges, so a hung jury is the best they can hope for…

        Like

        • I believe a hung jury at best….well, for him. I think that since the jury probably knows he was convicted on shooting at a vehicle and a weapons charge, by default the end result was due solely to the 4 conviction.

          By common sense he’s guilty of a homicide……Only racists with an agenda can’t see that. At least there are a few black people on the jury……Thank God.

          It should be “….a trial by the victims peers” Not a trial by a bunch of blind racists.

      But, you Mr. Dunn, shot Jordan Davis right after saying to him, “You are not going to talk to me like that!”

        I can’t repeat this enough, and I will remember it until the day I die.

        Dunn “said” NOTHING to Jordan Davis. If you watch his testimony from the first trial, you will see him seething with anger as he repeats what he SHOUTED at Jordan Davis!

        Dunn, on the stand, reenacted how he got his gun, cocked it, and pointed it out the window at Jordan, while he hollered: Quote: “You ARE NOT going to Talk to ME like that you Son of a Bitch!”

        Dunn murdered Jordan Davis because he felt disrespected. Then, it was off to motel for drinks, pizza and a good nights sleep before heading home.

      A grand jury indicted Michael Dunn for first degree murder. As such, this was not merely Angela Corey deciding to charge Dunn 1st Degree Murder. A panel of Duval County citizens decided first degree murder was appropriate in this case.

    Thanks

    Like

    • Peni,
      I heard that part too and wonder the same. Going by Judge Healey’s response, I think that the defense was going to try and use the depositions and/or testimony from the first trial to compare with current testimony. If Judge Healey is not allowing the mention of the first trial in this trial, it forbids the defense from bringing up prior testimony.

          @ the potential need to impeach:

          The defense lawyer at the end of the video “Day 2 -Part 1) had asked Tevan Thompson if they (in red Durango) had parked in the 3rd parking space. At first Thompson says he can’t say exact space. Thus, she was going to impeach him to prove he had earlier (maybe in deposition or in first trial) confirmed that they had indeed parked in the 3rd space.

          Here is how it went down:

          DEFENSE:Now when you pull up into the Gate gas station, y’all pull up into the left of the front doors, correct?
          THOMPSON: Correct.
          DEFENSE: And, y’all are in the third space from the front doors, right?
          THOMPSON: Uh, I couldn’t…
          DEFENSE: When you first pull up…
          THOMPSON: Yeah, I just couldn’t say exact space.
          DEFENSE: Okay.
          (Starts rustling papers, then asks judge if she can approach witness. Judge says no and tells defense attorney that he hasn’t seen what she is going to show witness. During 15 minute jury break, the judge tells defense attorney how to properly impeach a witness.)

          Jury returns.

          The Defense asks Tevan Thompson again (next video – Day 2 – Part 2):

          DEFENSE: And, I had asked you about whether or not that you. at the time that you pulled up to the Gate station, you parked in the third space, isn’t that right, sir?

          THOMPSON: Correct.

          Because he says “correct” here, the need to impeach became a dead issue.

          • DEFENSE: And, I had asked you about whether or not that you. at the time that you pulled up to the Gate station, you parked in the third space, isn’t that right, sir?

    I like the way they tried to make it sound like the state got the two witnesses off because the one was in violation of probation and the other had a warrant for driving on a suspended license, in exchange for their testimony. I don’t know about Florida, but the courts here in So Calif don’t do anything for petty crap like that. The jails here are so full, unless you committed a violent crime, you are pretty well home free. Even if you are found guilty of a non violent crime and sentenced to do time, chances are you will be out within a week.

    • Butterflydreamer,
      I like that the state got those explanations out of the way to destroy the defense’s ammunition. It reminds me of the Wafer trial where the state got it out of the way that Renisha was drunk and had smoked pot so the defense could not later cross examine and make it look as it the state was trying to hide that.

      I think the REAL trial is going to start when the State gets to cross-examine defense witnesses.

      She’s going for the witnesses did not see everything, trying to make them agree they only saw only portions, using it was dark, or they were hidden by the door, or they couldn’t see what was going on one the other side of the door, or were fixated on something else, therefore Jordon could have pointed a weapon or stick at Dunn, but they didn’t see it. Jordon threatened him, said he was going to kill him, cussed at him, he was the aggressor and made Dunn fear for his life. Dunn was the good guy, he even told them thank you when they turned down or off the music. They could have gotten rid of the weapon, although witnesses said they didn’t see them toss it, they didn’t see everything.

      It should be interesting when His ex-girlfriend testifies. She said he never mentioned they had a gun, and he said he told her several times. The fact he never called 911, went to a motel, walked the dog, ordered pizza, and drank more alcohol, should seal the deal, but Dunn was in no hurry, after all he didn’t do anything wrong, he saved himself. He’d never been more scared in his life. He had all night to think it all out, had himself a pizza and rum and coke to wash it down with.

    All of this is so total bullshit. The idiot Dunce, first of all drove into a spot and very close to the guys. He starts an altercation, KNOWING he’s going to piss someone off.

    Let me just say as a white female, IF he had done that to me, I would be mad as hell him parking so close and then telling me in my vehicle what to do.
    There’s no telling what I would have called him or said to him. He just like GZ, a spoiled brat, used to getting their way by bullying everyone, they don’t get it so they carry a gun just in case someone doesn’t do or act just like they want them to, he takes out a gun and kills them.

    The defense asked was Dunce screaming or piunding his fist in anger. OH hell no, he just blew them away with a gun.
    I’m so sick and tired of these idiots getting by with murder!!
    BTW, a growling dog is more dangerous than a barking one usually and that’s what Dunce was doing.
    I hope and pray he has to serve the max for what he did.
    IF he was so in fear, why the hell didn’t he just drive off?
    Just like GZ could have done in his truck.
    It’s hard to watch this.
