    Pay attention Florida black males. It is open season on you. Dunn will receive a hung jury and be home by Thanksgiving mostly due to the make up of the jury. They are making it possible to exterminate you and not even suffer any consequences. Dunn killed that young man, went back to his room, ordered a pizza, walked his dog, went to sleep, and after hearing the report on the news the next morning............drove home to ensure his dog was ok. With all the wrong he did in this case...............he will be a free man. This will give more people cause, reason, & freedom to exterminate you out of a PERCEIVED threat (suspicious look, walking too fast, following too closely, moving too quickly, talking too loudly, listening to a certain type of music, unsure of what you had your hands in your pocket for, etc).

    Audio terrorism is a serious issue. People use audio equipment like a weapon of war. Loud pounding booming music that is as loud as a jet engine is not something that is meant to be fun. It affects peoples nerves, health and environment. Amplified music systems in cars and homes should be illegal. Bars and arenas have get permits to be able to play music at certain decibles in certain areas. It is a serious problem that really needs more attention. Not condoning the extreme this man went to but I do understand it.

      Audio terrorism is a serious issue? I don't consider something you can remove yourself from at anytime a "serious issue". Sounds as though you are giving a credible reason for Michael Dunn to have acted in anyway he saw fit by the use of your descriptive terms (Terrorism" and "weapon of war). I've been around loud music, I've also been around Jet engines when they fire up. Looking at the speakers in that kids car there is ZERO chance that those speakers were even remotely close to a jet engine.
