New Michael Dunn jailhouse phone calls

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As Michael Dunn sat behind bars in the days following the fatal shooting of 17 year old Jordan Davis, he dreaded what was to come.

“I'm not looking forward to spending the rest of my life in prison,” he told his fiancé Rhonda Rouer in a jailhouse phone calls released Thursday.

Dunn told Rouer that JSO detectives assumed he was guilty when he spoke to them for the first time, the day after the incident.

“They're just going, “’yeah, yeah, yeah, I've heard it before.’”

In court on February 12, Dunn testified that he told Rouer he saw a gun that night, but Rouer testified Dunn never mentioned a weapon.

The jailhouse calls suggest Dunn didn’t tell Rouer much at all.

“We didn't even talk about it,” said Rouer.

“I know,” he responded.

Dunn says he wishes he'd acted differently.

“I should’ve known just to get a different parking spot. I don't know why I didn't.”

He also insists he was acting in self-defense, and that the entire case was unfair.

“I'm sitting here stewing in my own juices cause I'm the ******* victim. I just chose not to be victimized.”

I'm of the opinion Rhonda Rouer should be charged as well. She had every opportunity to phone the Police, however, her concern was not four teenagers which her fiance attempted to "gun down" but their dog Charlie, and stocking up on more booze. They both knew they'd too much to drink and they'd no intention of reporting it that evening and being subject to a blood test of any sort, particularly since Michael Dunn has a previous DUI of record! Although they'd learned from the News that Michael Dunn had gunned down and killed Jordan Davis in cold blood, the next morning they were up at 7:00 A.M. and Michael Dunn stated, "we were outta there by 8:00 A.M." Once again, no concern for the life taken the night before. Rhonda was perfectly normal in her "police interview" but on the stand she certainly turned on the nerves and water works! As for Michael Dunn, he's an obvious racist, each new letter he releases from jail shows that, and I hope they use it should a new trial occur. Listening to the phone conversations between Michael Dunn, his fiance (Rhonda "cry me a fake river" Rouer) and his parents, Phillip and Sandra Dunn, and they will make you sick! There is no empathy for the teenager killed in cold blood, or for his family. Michael Dunn even had the audacity to claim he was the victim? The Dunn family is painting a clear picture of themselves for the world to see. Phillip and Sandra Dunn are racists who raised a racist kid, never cut from the apron strings. Michael said on the tape he "always wants to talk to his Daddy." Please! The facts and truth are pretty clear for all to see. Michael Dunn had too much to drink, thinks he is superior to blacks, and killed this poor teenager because he raised his voice to him and used profanity. At no time was Michael Dunn under physical threat. Michael Dunn became the "judge and juror" in that parking lot, and Michael Dunn will spend the rest of his life in prison, right where he belongs! Unfortunately Rhonda Rouer is walki

I never said Dunn was innocent through all this unity4all, I was just stating had this case been treated right from the police on down, a good lawyer could have made his client SHUT UP and see it WAS a stand your ground incident. Nasty ass Cory is BIASED. Imagine this was an old Black guy, sitting in his car, waiting for his wonderful girl and was subjected to loud music and threats from a car load of skin heads rednecks thugs...? SHOULD HE SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN PRISON BECAUSE HE FELT HE WAS IN A FIGHT FOR HIS VERY LIFE? Still want to say I must be born and bred on the west side? YOUR A IDIOT. I avoid that area when ever possible, Even though your "Culture of thug thinking' idiots are spreading all over Jax now, so no matter where we all live, ANYBODY CAN FIND THEM SELVES IN SIMILAR 'DUNN AND ZIMMERMAN SITUATIONS'. THUG 'ACTIONS' AND THUG 'THINKING' ARE CAUSING MORE AND MORE DECENT PEOPLE TO ARM THEMSELVES AND SOME REALLY ARN'T TRAINED, ESPECIALLY NOT TRAINED TO OVER-REACT AS DUNN DID. AND 'UNITY'4 ALL (my ass) YOUR IGNORANT COMMENT SHOWS YOUR 'PIN HEADED', 'LOP SIDED' THINKING THE SAME WAY CORY'S DOES. You thug and thug lovers can't get away with BREAKING the laws as much anymore, so you BEND AND CHANGE THE LAWS to get away with it.

While I don't believe Jordan Davis was an angel, I believe that Dunn murdered him and then tried to hide behind the "stand your ground" law. It didn't apply here. Dunn was the aggressor. He even admits to continuing to fire as Davis and his friends attempted to flee the scene. If Dunn thought that he was not guilty, he shouldn't have fled the scene and he should have notified the police immediately instead of taking a few days to cook up a story that he thought would get him off.

The name @nativejax says it all, probably westside born and bred. This is not a SYG case. Dunn's own word dispute that, he says in this call he never discussed the mystery gun with his girlfriend so they should add perjury to the murder charge. Based on your statement you maybe suffering from the same disease Dunn had, Fortunately, life in prison is curing his condition.

Fat face Cory "Can't see whats wrong with her blantant BIAS when it comes to Dunn because she ISN'T OBEYING THE LAW HERSELF. Under Florida law, YOU CAN STAND YOUR GROUND. You don't not have to RETREAT TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GAS STATION JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SUBJECTED TO LOUD OBNOXIOUS NOISE OR BECAUSE A CAR LOAD OF 'ANYBODY' STARTS THREATENING YOUR LIFE. OR BECAUSE THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS TRYING TO MAKE THAT LAW OUT AS A BAD LAW JUST TO GET OUR PERSONAL RIGHT TO TO USE A GUN TO DEFEND OURSELVES. Until that Law IS REPEALED, IT is THE LAW. She is one THEIR side to punish law abiding gun owners to make sure ONLY CROOKS have guns. And as far as Mayor Brown being offended by the word, 'THUGS', I highly doubt it, HE HAS MORE cLASS THAN TO LISTEN TO THIS BULL. ONLY the sorry ass news would twist this into the new 'n' word to try to keep OBama's DIVISION of us going. THUG is the new word for a CRIMINAL and it refers to ALL CROOKS. Also I personally, do not see Mayor Brown doing anything wrong at all, and not even close to being a thug.
