    Re: Michael Dunn Murder Trial of Jordan Davis guilty or not?

    Can you prove in any form what so ever that these kids were threatening him? And before you start, yes he does have to show his life was in reasonable danger. Just like every other self defense claim in history. You have a group of unarmed teens that he approached. They did not assault him. Noone heard them threaten him. Noone saw a gun. There is no actual indication that any of that happened. The only thing that is known really is that he shot the truck up and then fled and hid from the police. A man who shoots in self defense does not do that. He calls the cops and reports the incident as the law requires.

    You cannot shoot someone, or at someone, even legally and then just leave.
    It looks like that is what he did.

I am pretty sure his room did. If he thought someone had threatened his life and he discharged his firearm in self defense he would have called. If he did think these guys had a gun and were now going to come after him, call his friends, or start shooting back that is even more reason to notify the police. If he was acting in self defense he would have called the cops. Innocent men dont run from the cops, they dont hide.
    Today on the stand Dunn claimed that he was watching out in the hotel because he was terrified that the "gangsters" were coming after him. Yet he took the dog out for a walk, and even though he was terrified never called the police.

    He stated that she didn't want him to call the police, she said that she asked him to call the police.
    He stated that Davis got out of the car, yet he also said that the cars were too close for him to open his door, and she said that the cars were too close.
    He said he only fired one shot at the rear of the car, but his own police interview he said that he fired 4 at the rear of the car.

    There are many more, but those are the ones that came right to my mind. If you want to see the rest, you can watch all 7 hours of today's testimony.
    As I thought. Your recollection is as faulty as your claim.

    And I will add ...
    His testimony being different from another's is not contradicting himself as you claimed.

    Please. I watched all 7 hours today, and have watched the rest of the case as I have time. On cross today, he was caught red handed telling two different stories several times.

    I already di provide some, and I am not going through 7+ hours of testimony for you. If you don't believe me, fine. I really don't care.

    Dunn is certainly guilty, but he was not legally obligated to call the cops.
