    The jury could have convicted him with M2 even though Dunn was charged with M1. They chose not to because it's Florida and Floridians can't do anything right.
    they could have got him on manslaughter. at least some of the jurors thought he was guilty how many they couldn't convince who knows.
    hence the retrial.

    but you are right theres no facts or corroborated evidence that support his actions, this is way he will be in prison for a long time and rightfully so.

    He acted crazy and unreasonable and now that asshole thug will be put in jail.
    Actually, I had to wonder if part of the reason he didn't come forth immediately was intoxication.

    If the man was in fear for his life enough to open fire. He would have called the police IMMEDIATLY when he was at a safe distance. That is what a responsible gun-owner would do.

    Gotta wonder why he didn't.

    No. That is what you believe one does.
    He explained his actions. There is nothing wrong in the reason he gave.

    Of course there is everything wrong with what he did.

    That, to anybody, would appear to be a real threat.
    Under such circumstance the only one being an asshole and at fault for what happened, was Davis, not Dunn.

    Now, you do not have to believe that happened.
    But the prosecutor does have to prove it didn't. And she failed at doing so.
    I have no idea what your post has to do with mine. As to what was apparently proved and what wasn't, he's going to jail for at least sixty years for his actions that evening. The fact that the jury couldn't agree on one count doesn't change that.

    Not in the reason we are discussing.
    And then not in defending himself either.

    Then you are not attempting to understand the connection.
    He was threatened with imminent harm to his life, and yet, here you were saying he was an asshole for addressing it.
    And you want to say you do not understand what I said has to do with what you said?
    Okie dokie!

    And secondly, you have no idea how long he will be going away for (you are over looking good time and/or disciplinary credits), nor do you know if the convictions will even stand.

    I think it's the jury instructions. Wish we could see them. It shouldn't be confusing. Juries shouldn't have to parse the law. I'd bet dollars to donuts that's where the problem lies.

    Those instructions would be the reason he was wrongly convicted.

    No. They're the reason they couldn't agree on whether he was guilty of killing anyone.
