On November 23, 2012, Michael Dunn fired six shots into a car with black teens, killing Jordan Davis.

Yesterday, Dunn’s girlfriend Rhonda Rouer testified that Dunn told her “I hate that thug music” before she exited the vehicle to buy potato chips and wine. While Rouer was out of the car, Dunn and Davis began arguing over the volume of the music. One of Davis’ friends, 18-year-old Tevin Thompson, said that he never heard Davis threaten Dunn. He also said that the cars were so close together that neither would have been able to exit their vehicles.

Soon, Dunn fired three shots into the rear passenger door, piercing Davis’ liver and aorta. The next three bullets hit the front passenger door where Thompson was sitting, but deflected off the handle and hinge. The driver of the Durango then fled to an adjacent strip mall, where it became apparent that Davis was dying.

Dunn, meanwhile, returned to his hotel with Rouer, where they made rum and cokes and ordered a pizza. Dunn’s attorney is arguing for his innocence based on Florida’s insane “Stand Your Ground” law, which was written by America’s gun lobby.
