QOTW: Understanding Mixed Verdicts in ‘Loud Music’ Murder Trial

Michael-Dunn.jpg

Hey folks, This week’s Law of Self Defense: Question of the Week comes from, I’m afraid, from just about everybody:

What’ the heck happened with the verdict in the Michael Dunn “loud music” murder trial?

Because I can’t really credit any single person with this one, I’ll be donating this week’s free copy of “The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition,” to the non-profit women’s self-defense organization Arming Women Against Rape and Endangerment. (Though I doubt anybody at AWARE would recall, when I was a much younger man I did a bit of volunteer firearms training for them–they’re an entirely volunteer organization. They’re good folks. )

The Five Indictment Charges Against Michael Dunn, And Lessers
