Tonight on AC360: The next Trayvon Martin case?

Jordan Davis was 17, the same age as Trayvon Martin, when he crossed paths with 45-year-old Michael Dunn in a Jacksonville, Florida parking lot.  Their deadly encounter happened about 100 miles north of Sanford, and just nine months after George Zimmerman killed Martin.  Dunn is claiming he shot and killed Davis in self-defense, telling police he belived Davis and his friends had weapons.  Though none were ever found.  It's another case linked to Florida's "Stand your ground" law.  Jordan's parents are talking to Anderson.

    I believe the unpopular stand your ground law is been use against minority blacks to destroy and eliminate its existence as a people in the American culture because of the misconception that black people are violent and good for nothing people that are always involved in gang related issues. The federal government must, and I say must take some actions to address this nightmare or else it will set the stage for total chaos and violent actions in certain communities of the country. One time. it was 17 year old Trayvon Martin and then 17 year old Jordan Davis in the same state.

    So this guy, didn't even call the police? They had to track him down the next day? (From what I've gathered so far) That alone makes it no comparison to the Zimmerman case. Also, the victim is the one that has witnesses, not the shooter.

    Their is simply no comparison between this case and George Zimmerman. At this moment I know absolutely nothing about
    micheal Dunn. I listened to him tell his side of the story. I suspect that Micheal Dunn is aggressive-short tempered-will
    confront you in a bar-dominering-Possible wife beater. Opposite of George Zimmerman. I will be curios to see when the
    trial starts and they have checked his back ground to see if i'am right. This is the proper case for the civil rights gang.

    I remember when Jordan Davis was born. To the best parents possible Ron and Lucy Davis. A close family....
    The best parents and grandparents. I am sorry beyond words he is gone. I'm sure beyond any doubt that this child born into this family was a " good kid " . So senseless and so sad. My heart goes out
    To Ron, Lucy and all of the family. You are in my prayers.
