News 4 Jacksonville has unveiled disturbing letters written by Michael Dunn, the 45-year-old Florida man charged with last year’s shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. The incident occurred after Dunn, who is white, and the black teen clashed over loud music while in their cars.
Dunn, who says he acted in self-defense and writes that he has a stronger case than George Zimmerman, is set to go to trial in September on first-degree murder charges. Although he paints himself as nonracist, the language in more than 100 pages of letters tell a different story.
“The fear is that we may get a predominantly black jury and therefore, unlikely to get a favorable verdict,” he writes in one letter. “Sad, but that’s where this country is still at. The good news is that the surrounding counties are predominantly white and Republican and supporters of gun rights!”
He also lashes out at the victim, writing, “I was thinking an easy way to die would be to ask a car load of thugs to turn their stereo down!”
