Jordan Davis, a young Afro-American killed by a white racist under the pretext that he was listening to "music too loudly" in Jacksonville, Florida (United States), on November 23, 2012


2012-11-23_Jordan_Davis_17.jpgIn its edition of Feb. 12, 2014, La nouvelle tribune writes about a racist crime in Florida in the United States. A young Afro-American man listening to music in his car was murdered in Florida by a white man who accused him of listening to music 'too loudly'.

The white criminal, Michael Dunn aged 47 appeared before the judges on Tuesday. "Self-defense," he pleaded. According to the criminal report, he allegedly asked black teenagers who were listening to music in their vehicle parked at a petrol station to lower the volume of the music but they did not obey. At the same time, according to him, the young man left the vehicle and at that moment he believed that it was to attack him.

According to Michael, the youth were in possession of a firearm. And fearing for his life and that of his fiancee who was with him, he opened fire on the vehicle, to dissuade them. At the latest news, the police in their investigations did not find that the youth had any weapons with them.

According to the youth, they had done nothing threatening that could explain Michael Dunn's criminal act. This seems to be a purely racism motivated killing of an Afro-Amerian until the contrary is proved by the investigators.
