Honestly Redeye if I were black I don't know if I would have the courage to have children in this country. 
 And that's exactly what it takes, courage, and prayers if you are born poor/black/brown in the United States of America. Sigh

Seventeen year old Jordan Russell (17) was shot and killed by Michael Dunn (45) in the parking lot of a convenience store in Jacksonville, Florida last Friday.  Dunn's car was parked next to the car Russell was in and ordered them to turn their music down.  Words were exchanged, Dunn pulled a gun and fired 8-9 shots into the car, striking Russell 2 times and drove off the a Jacksonville Hotel.  Witnesses jotted down his tag number (thank God) and he was arrested at his home in Satellite Beach, FL. {source}

Michael Dunn, his attorney, and his daughter said he acted responsively is invoking the Stand Your Ground defense. 

Oh, Okay.
