Justice Panel with Ron Davis at UNF

Written by Mark O'Mara on . Posted in Outreach

I’ll be in Jacksonville on Tuesday to meet Ron Davis. Mr. Davis is the father of Jordan Davis who was shot and killed by Michael Dunn in November of 2012. The tragedy made headlines while I was managing the Zimmerman defense, and while these were very different cases, the outrage over the shooting death of an unarmed teen was very similar. I remember reading a compelling article about the shooting in Rolling Stone called A Most American Way to Die, and it contributed to a broader understanding of the issues of race, guns, and justice in our country. I’m very honored to be sharing the stage with Mr. Davis as part of the UNF Distinguished Voices lecture series. If you’re in the Jacksonville area, I hope you’ll attend. We will also be screening 3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets, a documentary about the shooting that will premier on HBO next month.
