Michael Dunn Cries ‘Victim’ In Death Of Teenager Jordan Davis

Michael Dunn, who could possibly spend the rest of his life behind bars for murdering African-American teenager Jordan Davis, described himself as “the f*cking victim” in jailhouse phone conversations with his fiancee. Appearing to show little remorse for shooting the 17-year-old, Dunn insisted that he acted in self-defense over what began as an argument over loud rap music. Although the jury could not reach a verdict on his first-degree murder charge, he was found guilty on four other charges last week including attempted murder.

The jailhouse phone calls were recorded in late 2012 and show Dunn displaying a total lack of compassion for his actions. “I was the one who was victimized. I’m the victor, but I was the victim too,” he said. “I was the one who was being preyed upon and I fought back. I refused to be a victim and now I’m incarcerated.”

The attorney general’s office also released a letter from Dunn describing his account of the incident. He claimed to have seen Davis pick up a gun barrel, but investigators found no trace of a weapon anywhere in the vehicle. “Something happened inside of me when he advanced towards me and my paralysis left me,” he wrote. “Between fear, adrenaline and muscle-memory, I grabbed my pistol from the glove box. As I was doing so, I shouted, ‘You’re not going to kill me you son of a b*tch!'”

Dunn will be sentenced next month and faces up to 60 years in prison, which would essentially be a life sentence for the 44-year-old. However, his lawyer has already vowed to appeal.
