Lets play a game. Its called: Whos the Thug?
Its the day after Thanksgiving 2012, and four teenagers are sitting in a Dodge Durango outside a convenience store in Jacksonville, Fla.
The Durango is red, which is unimportant. The teenagers are black, which is important.
The teenagers are planning to try to pick up some girls later in the evening and have stopped for some gum so our breath would smell good, one will later testify and cigarettes. The teenagers are playing loud music in the Durango.
A car pulls up next to the Durango, parking very close to it. Inside is Michael Dunn, 45, a software developer, and his fiancée. Both are white. Dunns fiancée goes into the store while Dunn waits in the car.
The couple are coming from the wedding of Dunns son. They have Dunns 7-month-old dog with them. Dunn had two drinks at the wedding but is not buzzed, he will later say. He describes his mood as happy.
But the loud, throbbing music from the Durango upsets him. It is rattling his rearview mirror, he will later claim. The music, he will say, is ridiculously, obnoxiously loud thug music and rap crap.
Dunn does not change parking spaces or go inside the store to join his fiancée and escape the noise. Instead, he rolls down his window and asks the teenagers to turn down the music. They shut it off, and I was like, Thank you, Dunn later tells police....

Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.
Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.
The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic. Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery. Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.
The white guys with the guns are going to be the people who drag your a$$ out of the line of fire, defend you and feed you as long as they are able to do so - when the SHTF - and it will.
Oh. I don’t know why this didn’t occur to me.
Hey, buttmunch: shooting a thug does not make you a thug. It makes you a thug exterminator.
Dunn is a murderer and should go to prison for life. That being said, no one EVER was shot over Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, et.al, and those bands played LOUD music, too. Shows you how far we’ve fallen....
It would be nice to hear from 1 of the 3 who voted for acquittal on that charge.
We heard from 1 or the 9 who voted guilty this morning.
White Liberals with a smug attitude are the worst thugs, they keep minorities on the plantation with their NPR voices and their plastic bananna platitudes, they are such great thugs no one realizes they are enguaged in thuggery most of the time...
They steal everyone’s future for promise of a brighter next day that never materializes, only the excuses for it not being there tomorrow do.
Are you including Michael Dunn in that assessment?
I guess a deafening high decibel intrusion on every’s ears around them is nothing. And threatening to kill someone is nothing. No, it’s only something when a white person responds.
In the "Jouronalistic" Comments business, Roger?
You win, you are!
“Police will find no shotgun or any other gun in the Durango or in the vicinity.”
The kids drove away, for who knows how far.
Even in my relatively tame area, I vacate the area of thugs with thumping rap.
To engage them with any requests for quiet is insane.
Maryland does not allow me to carry a gun.
They seem to be frequently exempt from that law.
Very prejudicially written article. I don’t think Dunn was right in escalating the situation. He was not physically threatened by the music. I agree that SYG was not an issue here. I do think it a strong likelihood that the teens had a gun, but if so, why didn’t they defend themselves? The jury was right to convict. P.S. I’m white.
If blacks are thugs and whites are thugs we just need to separate.
The real crime here is conflating Michael Dunn with George Zimmerman. Mr. Zimmerman might want to look at suing Mr. Simon.
Which is exactly why John Wilkes Booth shot President Lincoln.
White is always guilty, even if confronting feral savages.
But who are the real thugs? The unarmed black kids who play loud music or walk to stores to buy Skittles? Or the white guys who are armed to the teeth and quick on the trigger?
If he has to ask the question, he will neither understand nor accept any answer.
If white guys are thugs then just how stupid are the racists and liberals for screwing with them?
Is loud music a violation of any kind that police could be called?
Why do these savages play their rap crap so loud? Not because they like it. Because it creates a space around them that they own and dominate. It broadcasts to the world around them that they are there.
Similar savages aren’t bothered by it. Only normal people are annoyed by it, and that is intentional.
So normal people should stay out of the savage sphere of noise. Complaining to savages does no good, in fact it makes them happy to know that it’s disturbing normal people.
Geez... they got the outcome they wanted in this case (and I agree with it)
Trayvon was a thug who got what he deserved.
This 4 kids are rude AT MINIMUM but thugs? I dont know. But they didnt deserve to have some guy come out shooting at them.
I think he got pissed, knew he had a gun, and so decided he had enough... NOT a good attitude to have as a gun owner.
Shooting at a fleeing car is NOT self-defense
Young black men: 3% of the population. 50% of the murder.
You have it right all the way. Zimmerman was defending his life when he shot someone. The four kids in the car were guilty of bad manners.
Here are pertinent facts or quotes from the continuation of the article. In additon, someone turned the radio off, but one of the kids demanded he turn it back on.
Dunn fires four shots into the Durango. The Durango pulls away. Dunn gets out of his car and aims again at the teenagers vehicle. I was still scared and so I shot four more times trying to keep their heads down to not catch any return fire. And that was it, Dunn says later.
Police will find no shotgun or any other gun in the Durango or in the vicinity. No witness sees any shotgun or any other weapons in the Durango. When Dunns fiancée returns to the car, Dunn mentions the shooting but does not mention any shotgun.
The couple drive 40 miles to a bed and breakfast and relax. They order a pizza, they drink some wine and Dunn walks his dog. He learns from a report on TV that one of the teenagers in the Durango has died. He does not call police.
The next day, he and his fiancée drive 130 miles to his home in South Patrick Shores. Dunn says he was waiting till we get around people we know and he wanted to ensure our dog and everybody were where they needed to be. A witness to the shooting had called police with Dunns license plate number, and Dunn is arrested.
The jury undoubtedly reacted to the total disrespect for the law evidenced by this guys overall attitude. Hey, I just shot 8 times at people, let’s go to a B&B, relax, have some wine and pizza. Oh, someone died, oh well, let’s go home where it’s safe and then, maybe, call police.
I wonder if he was arrested on the way home, or how many hours he was home before arrested, and did he even have sense enough to call a lawyer to go in with him? On that jury how would you have voted?
And I suppose that makes the crack-smokin’ hoodie-wearin’ “knockout ‘game’” players noble savages?
When I lived in Monkey County and worked in Anacostia I carried. ;)
Tell you what. I’ll drive the author to EITHER Detroit or Beverly Hills at night and let him out to walk. I wonder which one he will choose...hmmm
Open your windows, crank up the volume and put on any loud classical music like the 1812 Overture with cannons.
Gets them quiet every time.
THOUSANDS of bad black guys.
Who is the thug? I choose... the color black.
Some people refuse to victims and some don’t want to bullied and feel threatened and are tired of being afraid. This guy, along with a lot of other people are dissatisfied with the direction that our society is taking and the everyday lack of common courtesy, people acting as if their actions don’t have any consequences.
Sure, it was “music” but it represented more than that. I expect to see more of these incidents as we go deeper into the clogged toilet that is Obama’s America.
What if the shooter was a black female and she felt threatened by a car filled with white boys making lewd comments? Would she be justified in shooting it up?
Thou shall not impersonate a kennedy.
This article was written by Roger Simon.
Roger Simon is a worthless piece of human garbage.
Therefore, it is logical to conclude that this article I s not worth reading.
Did you see where some poor tourist got hammered for having an empty shell?
Yeah, crazy stupid. But I was there working corrections during the height of the crack shootouts so I didn’t care.
55 people were shot and killed within 10 blocks of the facility I supervised in 1 year.
My little 2 1/2” Smith Model 19 was a good companion.
My response to the window rattling thumpa-thumpa mobile rap emitter is to encourage them to crank it ever higher. I already have hearing loss from time spent on the range and working the pyro board at metal concerts, so I will gleefully egg them on. It seems to amuse them to have an old bald white guy grinning maniacally and gesturing for “MORE dbs”. On one memorable occasion outside a Fiesta Food store in west Houston I managed to goad a carful of urban utes into blowing their subwoofer. I gave them a chagrined look when the telltale buzz started, and I laughed all the way home.
If I pulled up next to a SUV loaded w/teens or if they pulled up next
to me with their music blasting I would either tolerate it for a short
time or move. In the case of Dunn I believe that he might have
thought that access to his handgun provided him with enough extra
balls to risk angering a carload of young black males. Not smart
at the very least IMO.
Yes, which has nothing to do with the Trayvon Martin case.
Yes, I agree. For one thing Zimmerman was protecting his
neighborhood which was his neighborhood watch duty. Dunn
was in a store parking lot as were the teens. No question the
teens had a right to be there as did Dunn.
Most will agree the loud stupid music is way over the top.
It doesn’t rate capitol punishment, however?
You’re one of the few who could’ve actually gotten a carry permit.
My dad was corrections for decades.
He went to work every night with a Ruger .44 mag on his hip.
I read the entire article before making my post. I would have voted guilty.
Government shutdown unleashes racism - Roger Simon
I agree. Trying to compare this with the Zimmerman case is a non-starter in my book. Zimmerman was attacked and had the wounds to prove it. Dunn was not, and went about his normal business as if nothing had happened. From my perspective, Dunn is guilty, and Zimmerman was not.

Question: If Ted Cruz and John Boehner were both on a sinking ship, who would be saved?
Harsh? Look around you at what is happening to America and you will see harsh. I am not talking about closed parks and monuments. I am talking about the funds cut to nearly 9 million mothers and young children for food, breastfeeding support and infant formula.
That is harsh. Making a war against babies is harsh. And for what? Because Cruz, Republican senator from Texas, has grown so drunk on the sound of his own voice and so besotted with illusions of his own grandeur that he believes halting government today will propel him into the White House tomorrow?
He must've seen too many History Channel and PBS documentaries about the Kennedy Klan.
