One of the 2 black female jurors on the Michael Dunn jury has spoken out on whether racism was a factor in the jury deliberations.
Dunn, 47, was convicted on 4 of 5 counts against him in the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis following an argument over loud rap music.
Juror #8 said race was not a factor in convicting Dunn on 3 counts of 2nd degree attempted murder and 1 count of throwing a missile.
“I never once thought about, ‘Oh, this was a black kid, this was a white guy.’ Because that was – that wasn’t the case,” juror number 8, aged 21, told CNN reporter Alina Machado.
“So, for people who say, you know, here’s another white guy who got away with shooting and killing a black kid, what would you tell them?” Machado asked.
“I would tell them that they really should knowledge themselves on the law,” Miles replied.
“If this case wasn’t about race for you, what was it about?” the CNN reporter followed up.
“It was about justice,” juror number 8 responded.
Dunn faces a minimum of 60 years in prison when he is sentenced in late March.
