[Michael Dunn, murderer, writing to his daughter:] ‘The jail is full of blacks and they ALL act like thugs. I think the legal system is scared of a backlash any time there is a white-on-black incident, but don't get excited when it's black on black or even black on white.If by "stronger case" his lawyer meant "equally specious case", then sure. But perhaps that cocky arrogant confidence is the reason he reacted like this to the verdict:
‘This may sound a bit radical but if more people would arm themselves and kill these *** idiots when they're threatening you, eventually they may take the hint and change their behavior.’
In another letter that was posted to a Facebook page set up by his daughter to drum up support and donations for her father, Dunn expresses how racist the blacks are in Jacksonville. He also compares himself to George Zimmerman and says he had a stronger case than the former neighborhood watch volunteer.
Dunn wrote: ‘It's almost as if they're trying to hold me for as long as possible, because they know they have such a weak case against me and no chance of winning. Cory, my attorney, says I have a much stronger case of self-defense than Zimmerman does. He said that I should not worry if he loses, but it's a great sign if he wins.’
As the jury's decisions became clear about 7 p.m. Saturday, Dunn looked ahead solemnly with a frown but no tears. His lawyer, Cory Strolla, told reporters later that his client was "in disbelief."He kills an unarmed teenager, and he is in disbelief that he would get convicted of second-degree murder? He should be in disbelief that the jury mistrialed on the biggest charge—first-degree murder!
"Even as he sat next to me, he asked, how is this happening," Strolla said. "... It has not set in. I don't think it will set in anytime soon."
But why wouldn't he be in disbelief? He lives in a state that just let George Zimmerman walk. He lives in a fantasy world in which more people should assassinate brown and black Americans in order to "change their behavior" (i.e. listen to Lee Greenwood instead of Lil Wayne). Why, he should've gotten a medal!
Dunn will face a new trial on that final first degree murder charge. Maybe Florida will get it right this time.
