BREAKING: Michael Dunn found guilty of first-degree murder in shooting death of Florida teen Jordan Davis

Michael Dunn, the man who shot and killed Florida teenager Jordan Davis in November 2012, has been found guilty of first-degree murder.

Dunn was previously found guilty of three counts of attempted murder in a February trial for shooting at an SUV carrying Davis and three of his friends.
During that trial, the jurors deadlocked on the decision to convict Dunn of first-degree murder.
Tuesday saw Dunn testify in his own defense. The jury began deliberations early Wednesday morning.

From The Florida Times Union:

Dunn, 47, testified that Davis was angrily getting out of a Dodge Durango while holding a shotgun and threatening to kill him when he pulled out his own handgun and opened fire on Davis and others in the vehicle.

“You’re not going to kill me, you [filtered word],” Dunn said he yelled at Davis seconds before firing ten bullets at the Dodge Durango Davis was in.
Dunn said he was scared for his life and would have been killed if he hadn’t pulled out his own gun.
“I shot to defend my own life,” Dunn said at one point while testifying on Tuesday.

During closing statements, Assistant State Attorney John Guy reiterated that no weapons were found on Davis or inside the SUV he and his friends were riding in.

I can’t get over the accuracy of this tweet

I’d like to add a sixth stage: completely forgetting about it when a more sensational event comes along.


    The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.

    Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.

A university president just gave up a lot of his salary to raise his school’s minimum wage

In some pretty awesome and uplifting news, Kentucky State University’s interim president Raymond Burse has given up more than $90,000 of his nearly $350,000 salary to help raise university workers’ minimum wage to $10.25 an hour.

    Natural Hair Rule


    Never compare your hair journey, pattern, or growth with someone else’s. Your hair is beautiful, that’s all that matters.
