    Senator Durbin should hear from us.
    We have the case of Michael Dunn who shot the unarmed 17 yr old Jordan Davis, went to his hotel and  ordered pizza for himself and his girlfriend and is now claiming protection under Florida's SYG law.
    The senate needs to be pressured into a sense of urgency about this problem.

    •  That case is so disgusting (6+ / 0-)

      He was probably under the influence at the time of the shooting, having just come from a wedding (it was his son, IIRC).

      He waited in the car while his gf went into the store. He is one of those aholes who felt entitled to tell young people in the next car that their music was too loud. When they didn't respond the way he wanted them to, he unloaded his gun into their car. And then drove away without calling the police. Went to a motel with his gf to "sleep it off" - I suspect he knew he couldn't go home right away, or to the police  because he would have been convicted of drinking and driving.
