One of these cases went the way you think it should for once.


Not every jury has completely lost its senses where racial violence is concerned: Florida man Michael Dunn has been found guilty of first degree murder after shooting a black teen to death over loud music.

Dunn, who is white, shot and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis in a convenience store parking lot after asking Davis and his friends to turn down the music in their SUV. Dunn claimed he saw the butt of a gun and was acting in self-defense when he fired ten rounds into the car.

A jury composed largely of white men did not buy this and found Dunn guilty of first-degree murder. District Attorney Angela Corey (remember her?) said she will seek a life sentence for Dunn without possibility of parole. And you can go to sleep tonight knowing that most people really are good at heart and want the best for each other.
