During Tuesday night's episode of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart started the show off by discussing the verdict in the Michael Dunn trial.
Although it is tragic that racial animus is not a prosecutable crime, there are instances when the result of racism can be prosecuted. Yesterday a Florida jury convicted a man for expressing racial animus with a firearm.
Michael Dunn will probably receive a long prison sentence, but for the shots that missed, rather than the shot that killed Jordan Davis.
The story is not new, just the trial. The deadly event occurred on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving), 2012. The defense is on sharp alert as jury selection opens in Jacksonville.
