BREAKING: JUSTICE FOR JORDAN DAVIS: Michael Dunn Sentenced to Life Without Parole for Killing Jordan Davis, Plus 105 Years To Be Served Consecutively For 3 Attempted Murder Charges & Weapons Charge
Jurors in Jacksonville, Florida found Michael Dunn guilty of first degree murder Wednesday afternoon for the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. In November 2012, Dunn opened fire at an SUV Davis and three other unarmed teenagers were sitting in after becoming enraged at the loud “thug music” coming from the vehicle.
Michael Dunn was sentenced to life in prison without parole Friday morning for killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis in November 2012. Dunn, who murdered Davis over a dispute about loud “thug music” coming from a car the teen was sitting in, issued a halfhearted non-apology to Davis’ family before the sentencing.
"I want the Davis family to know I truly regret what happened. I’m sorry for their loss," Dunn said during his 25-second long statement. "If I could roll back time and do things differently, I would."
"I was in fear for my life and I did what I thought I had to do," he added. "Still, I am mortified I took a life, whether it was justified or not."
Judge Russell Healey obviously disagreed. “Our justice system works,” he said at the sentencing. “This case demonstrates that our justice system does work.”

"This case demonstrates that our system does work."
Don’t get ahead of yourself Mr Judge; even a broken clock is right twice a day.
