    outrageous for a person to politely ask another person to turn down the music.
    But that's not what happened in this case and it's not what it was all about. Did you read the Crooks and Liars piece about what Dunn's neighbor said? As someone else pointed out, if even half of what the neighbor said is true, Dunn was probably spoiling for a chance to shoot someone. And given his racist views, it's not a bit surprising that he shot someone black.
    Dunn was not a person politely asking another person, he was a violent vicious thug (yes, he's the thug) eager to show how powerful his gun made him.

    While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.

      All of the Dunn trial, that interview, Steve Smith testimony, Dunn first police interview, etc. on YouTube.

      I did not watch the trial.  I watched Youtube.  I first watched Dunn's initial police interview, then I watched what he said in court.  What a cool liar.  Shocking - and when he talks you can clearly tell lies from truth.

      The dismissive and angry way Dunn treated the prosecutor who did the rebuttal to his testimony - how could anyone on the jury like this arrogant man?

      I liked hearing the jurors when polled - there were many very strong, empathatic yesses from that jury.  I think you can tell who thought Dunn was a cold-blooded murderer.  

      Which I think he is.

      "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.

      •  I didn't see any of the trial, just read about it. (0+ / 0-)

        I wonder when we'll hear more about what the battle over the murder charge involved.
