With the exception of at least one idiot who hung the jury on the murder charge Bjorn Against Feb 2014 #9
Interesting take. flvegan Feb 2014 #11
once the vehicle is fleeing, hard to sell a self-defense claim nt geek tragedy Feb 2014 #15
Dunn did not even make a self defense claim against the other three in the vehicle Bjorn Against Feb 2014 #17
I wasn't there. flvegan Feb 2014 #28
They did not come to a conclusion in the murder case Bjorn Against Feb 2014 #32
It may well be the case. flvegan Feb 2014 #36
So you don't know the facts but somehow you know the jury did what they were summoned to do Bjorn Against Feb 2014 #38
I do know that they did just that. flvegan Feb 2014 #41
We do not have an outcome on the murder charge Bjorn Against Feb 2014 #42
So, you think maybe Dunn was justified in shooting an unarmed kid? geek tragedy Feb 2014 #60

You are probably quite wrong about someone buying the self-defense thing Yo_Mama Feb 2014 #46
Since he is guilty of attempted murder and malaise Feb 2014 #70
It seems that the shooting event was divided into subparts... HereSince1628 Feb 2014 #73
I guess you could look at it that way, but... Diamonique Feb 2014 #75
Yes, I agree this is the way the resolution of charges works. HereSince1628 Feb 2014 #80
Yes the jury was given those options Diamonique Feb 2014 #74
Or, there were one or two who were convinced that it should be 1st murder sked14 Feb 2014 #76
I don't see how this makes sense malaise Feb 2014 #77
Actually they weren't the same, and here's why Diamonique Feb 2014 #83
I hear you malaise Feb 2014 #89
I hope he stays there for a long time. cinnabonbon Feb 2014 #4
75 years - 20 year for each attempted murder, avebury Feb 2014 #7
what I can find, says it's consecutive and not concurrent NightWatcher Feb 2014 #24
I heard they have to run consecutively. nt arely staircase Feb 2014 #55
He'll probably be in prison until he dies, even if they run concurrently Warpy Feb 2014 #25
If 46 years old is considered an "old geezer," Keefer Feb 2014 #30
I agree. I'm 67 and am an "old geezer." You've got a long way to go before you achieve ... spin Feb 2014 #34
My bad, I'd heard him described as a retired officer Warpy Feb 2014 #35
I think you are thinking of another case whopis01 Feb 2014 #51
Probably, it's not like it's all that unusual Warpy Feb 2014 #53
There were, I believe, 5 counts demwing Feb 2014 #19
How can one be quilty on attempted murder when the victim is dead? Seems like that would then be jwirr Feb 2014 #69
That's my question as well malaise Feb 2014 #71
And that's what probably triggered the mistrial, sked14 Feb 2014 #78
consecutive sentences, max sentence, are in order nt geek tragedy Feb 2014 #5
Good work JJChambers Feb 2014 #6
Some would not be satisfied unless the jurors personally lynched him Yo_Mama Feb 2014 #13
Agreed JJChambers Feb 2014 #18
In other words, Life in Prison /nt demwing Feb 2014 #23
They can retry him on the one count Yo_Mama Feb 2014 #26
We'd have been satisfied if they convicted him for killing Davis. nt geek tragedy Feb 2014 #57
Given the convictions on the other charges Yo_Mama Feb 2014 #67

Closet racist juror-1 Justice - 0 JCMach1 Feb 2014 #10
Sorry, not correct. demwing Feb 2014 #33
No they just believed that it was justifiable to be threatened by imaginary guns JCMach1 Feb 2014 #44
Don't move the goalpost! You said justice was not served. demwing Feb 2014 #45
No, no, nothing being hung on the murder charge indicates justification Yo_Mama Feb 2014 #49
Realistically, they would have settled for murder 2 if that were the only barrier to consensus. geek tragedy Feb 2014 #61
Exactly! Diamonique Feb 2014 #68
They failed to convict him for killing Davis. nt geek tragedy Feb 2014 #58
The night is dark demwing Feb 2014 #62

Good point demwing Feb 2014 #47

I've heard almost nothing about this trial and its evidence. BlueCheese Feb 2014 #66
I didn't follow the trial, what evidence did they have that it was premeditated? Hippo_Tron Feb 2014 #84
Shooting down a teen in cold blood because he's playing loud music Lex Feb 2014 #85
It does to me too, but they have to prove that beyond a reasonable doubt... Hippo_Tron Feb 2014 #86
With even one racist asshole on the jury Lex Feb 2014 #87
apparenlty, someone bought the self defense story and would not go for murder 2 either..... bettyellen Feb 2014 #88
I'd say they ought to re-try for murder 2 then... Hippo_Tron Feb 2014 #90
yeah, no matter how much you explain premeditation can only take seconds- I think people do not bettyellen Feb 2014 #91
