Be a black guy who throws a bag of skittles at a white guy.

I think it’s the “first degree” part. If even one juror had believed he was acting in self defense, they wouldn’t have convicted him of attempted murder. I wonder if the jury was given the option of second degree?

And he’s looking at 60 years or so in prison for what he was convicted for, so it’s nothing like Zimmerman walking free — not even close.

re: #2 Snarknado!

I think they were given the option of 2nd degree.

As far as 1st degree, some have suggested that the problem was the ‘premeditation’ issue, but others have suggested Florida law might allow 1st degree without premeditation if the crime is committed at the same time as another felony, which would be the case here.

But I dunno if that’s the case.

I see his attorney is going to try to have the verdict thrown out, while the prosecutors are thinking of a retrial.

The good thing is that when he gets done paying all of the money he’s going to owe for his defense, he’ll be living in a cardboard box under an overpass. Since Zimmerman’s “art” and “boxing” careers are over, maybe Dunn could move in with him and take Zimmerman’s class on the fine art of attorney stiffing.

I just heard a report that some of the jurors thought he was acting self defense, but “went to far” by continuing to shoot. Odious, if true. But at least the guy gets a heavy sentence for what they did convict him of — despite stand your ground.

The state attorney for Jacksonville, Angela Corey, said immediately after the verdict that she planned to retry Mr. Dunn on first-degree murder. Ms. Corey said she hoped jurors would explain why they could not agree on that charge, which could help her team in the new trial.

It’s common for prosecution and defense to do post trial interviews with the jury to find out what arguments worked and what didn’t. I really want to know why they deadlocked on the murder charge. From what I saw, Dunn’s defense was really weak. It all hinged on on this magic disappearing shotgun. (And nobody asked why Davis, a middle class suburban kid with no criminal record or history of violence would be riding around with a shotgun!)

Surprisingly, the wingnuts over at Legal Insurrection have had the most detailed coverage of this trial. (Just don’t read the comments…or any other part of the site)
