'I Was the Victim,' Says Loud Music Trial Shooter in Jailhouse Phone Call

Feb. 17, 2014

Prosecutors released audio today of several jailhouse calls placed by Michael Dunn -- the man at the center of another controversial Florida trial -- shedding new light on his mindset in the initial days after he fatally shot 17-year-old Jordan Davis over a confrontation over loud music.

“I’m the [expletive deleted] victim here. I was the one who was victimized,” says Dunn, 47, in one of the calls in which he appeared to chuckle while speaking about his predicament. “I’m the victor but I was the victim too.”

In a separate call with his fiancé Rhonda Rouer, Dunn makes the connection between his situation and scenarios where police officers doubt rape victims.

“I was the one that was being preyed upon and I fought back. It’s not quite the same but it made me think of like the old TV shows and movies where like how the police used to think when a chick got raped going, 'Oh, it’s her fault because of the way she dressed.' I'm like, 'So it’s my fault (laughing) because I asked them to turn their music down. I got attacked and I fought back because I didn’t want to be a victim and now I'm in trouble. I refused to be a victim and now I'm incarcerated.”

Prosecutors accused Dunn of killing Davis in a convenience store parking lot after they got into an argument over loud music. Jurors found Dunn guilty on four of five charges for shooting at Davis’ friends, who were also in the car, as well as firing a gun into a car in the 2012 incident. However, jurors could not agree on the first-degree murder charge for shooting Davis, prompting a mistrial on that count.

The recordings mirror statements Dunn made in trial in which he stated that he believed his life was in danger, thus leaving him little choice but to shoot. The case has once again rekindled anger in some circles about self-defense laws, in particular “stand your ground,” despite it never being invoked during the trial.

Dunn testified that after he asked Davis to turn down the music blaring from the teen's car, a confrontation ensued and that Davis approached the middle-aged software developer. Dunn said he believed Davis had a weapon, leaving him little choice but to defend himself. However, a gun was never recovered at the scene.

In one of the nine calls released today, Dunn reads a letter that he planned on sending to the judge presiding over his case in an effort to make bail. Repeatedly both he and his fiancé say that the legal system is stacked against them, however Dunn says the law is on his side.

“I'm super confident if they take this to trial it will be a short deliberation,” said Dunn.

Dunn who placed the calls while in isolation also made repeated efforts to distance himself from fellow inmates, “Being in a room by myself really sucks, but better than being in a room with them animals.”

He will spend at least 60 years behind bars for the attempted murder charges. Prosecutors have indicated that they plan to retry Dunn on the first-degree murder charge.

White men have been killing both Black men and women since we were dragged aboard the first ship to set sail from West Africa to South Carolina. And, for the most part, they've done it with impunity. This is what we all know but somewhere during the last 30 years or so seem to have tried to forget.

I think the generation of Black folks who came of age just after the Civil Rights Movement have done us a gross disservice. They were so busy trying to assimilate. Busy trying to climb the corporate ladder. Busy trying to live next door to White folks. Busy trying to prove their worth. So busy in fact that they forgot to fight the system rather than to be apart of the one that already existed.

The result is that no real systematic changes have been made to the power structures that nourish and keep the doctrine of White Supremacy alive and well.

So, here we are well into the new millennium and it in many ways looks like the a rerun of the previous 100 years. Segregation is in full effect both in housing and in education. Black folks are still the victims of economic terrorism at the hands of both government and the private sector. And, White men continue to kill Black folks with impunity. If not them then their agents in the form of police.

Structural changes must be made. Otherwise our children's children will be having these same conversations. And I fear that the only way for those changes to take place is for us to give as good as we've gotten. The NRA says own guns. We should own guns. And when a White man confronts us, we take that gun and pull the trigger.

Sure some will be sacrificed into the justice system. But, after a point White folks will get tired of getting shot down like dogs in the street and will demand reform. They will demand laws be changes to stop the carnage. They will choose life.

There will never be a peaceful solution. No one has ever removed their boot from a neck because they were politely asked. The longer we keep looking for a bloodless solution, the longer we will be having this conversation.

This is what disturbs me the most. I was really hoping they did not choose to convict because they had a hard time finding it premeditated. SMH.

Cases like these really wear me down mentally.

I wish Malcolm X hadn't been assassinated. We need him right now. Why don't we have any leaders like that? Most black men on tv openly say racist things about other blacks and couldn't care less about stuff like this.
