Survivor mode also says you preserve your life,which sometimes means getting the **** out of Dodge.You have never been in this situation so you can not say what you would or wouldn't do.But I do know there is that survivor mode we have in us and if somebody is shooting at me and I have a shotgun at my access I am going to fire back. If there was a shotgun, and I believe this story came out as an afterthought by Dunn, it was on the victim and the passenger could have easily picked it up.
If they using a pipe to give the impression that they had a gun its completely understandable that they didn't fire.Also they are trying to escape gun fire so it also understandable that they are trying to flee instead of trying to fire back.Even with them backing up he was firing into them. I just can't believe one of these guys who many described as gangster thugs wouldn't have grabbed that gun and fired back.
This is why it is suspicious that it was self defense.But the biggest red herring is that he did not immediately report this to the police that day or even the next.
I do not know, I have never shot the crap out of a car with 4 people in it.Let me ask you this. If you had just shot the crap out of a car with 4 people in it , regardless if you were in the right or not , could you honestly just drive to a bed and breakfast and enjoy a pizza?I would be on the phone to the authorities and an attorney. I would not have any appetite that night worrying about my outcome when this is investigated.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Too much poo to repost it all.
Guilt by association? fact is the dead teen was an advance placement student.
Drinking before the use of deadly force doesn't matter? The fact no one supports Dunn's claims, but several hear him angrily shouting at the SUV, he didn't just shoot to eliminate the threat but continued to shoot as the 'threat' left. Eye witness saw the boys across the street and tesified they didn't remove a weapon from the SUV.
SYG is separate of self defense legally, like I said if it was SYG there would have been a hearing and if it was determined by a judge that SYG is true then no trial, fact is the defense NEVER asked for the hearing.
You can fling poo and grasp at straws, Dunn drank at a wedding, shot at some kids over loud music, drove away, spent the night at a hotel, and only after returning home contacted the police.
Actions do speak louder than words. Dunn's actions convicted him. That the jury hung over murder 1 doesn't mean anyone thought he was not guilty of murder, it just means at least ONE thought not guilty of murder 1.
Anyway, if Dunn was upset over all the 'thugs' in jail, just wait til he gets to prison!
But birds of a feather.....
Though ask yourself this - if it were white kids blasting Led Zeppelin, would he "feel threatened." (I mean, besides the fact that blasting Zeppelin is awesome.)
That guy was filled with bad decisions. That's why I think he was probably alcohol impaired from his son's wedding. That's the only scenerio I can think of where I might not stay at the scene . . . they drove off as he was SHOOTING AT THE DAMNED CAR. I think the wild-assed assumption that he was drunk answers the question of "Why the HELL did he drive off and not contact the cops???"
