Earlier this week, prosecutors released audio of jailhouse phone calls placed by Michael Dunn, the man who fatally shot Jordan Davis after a confrontation that began over loud music.
On the tapes, which were recorded before trial, Dunn expressed that he felt like the victim in the altercation.
“I’m the [expletive] victim. I was the one who was victimized,” Dunn said. “I’m the victor but I was the victim too.”
During an interview on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell, Jordan Davis’ parents responded to Dunn saying his perception of what took place that night is misconstrued.
“Michael Dunn should understand that the victim was the one that had a bullet go through his lungs, a bullet tear his aorta,” Ron Davis said. “The victim was the one that was choking on his own blood and was gasping for air. The victim was a 17-year-old teenager that should have had his whole life in front of him that was seeing his life go away in seconds, and he probably was so fearful, and his friends were looking on watching their best friend die in a moment of seconds. That’s the victim.”
