On Saturday a jury found Florida resident Michael Dunn guilty on three counts of attempted murder, and one count of firing a missile on the day that led to the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.
In newly released phone calls from jail to his fiancé, Dunn tells her that he is both the victim and the victor in the situation.
“I was the one that was being preyed upon and fought back. It’s not quite the same but it made me think of like the old TV shows and movies where like how the police used to think when a chick got raped going, ‘Oh it’s her fault because of the way she dressed. I’m like (laughing) so it’s my fault because I asked them to turn their music down. I got attacked and fought back because I didn’t want to be a victim and now I’m in trouble. I refused to be a victim and now I’m incarcerated.”
The calls were recorded in December 2012, just about a month after Davis was killed in front of a gas station convenience store.
Florida state prosecutor Angela Corey has announced that she will pursue a new trial for the first-degree murder charges Dunn escaped.
