JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For the first time since the verdict, Jordan Davis' parents spoke to "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, as the reality of what happened in the jury room Saturday finally started settling in.
His mother, Lucia McBath, said, "We believe absolutely, with all out hearts, they did everything they could to come with what they believe was the most just decision."
She said it was a just decision, but not the decision the teen's family wanted.
Davis' father, Ron Davis, said, "These people are torn because of the jury instruction, I believe. Not because of the case."
Action News got a copy of the jury instructions. They're 40 pages long, and they detail each charge, each lesser charge and what constitutes self-defense.
Juror #4, the only juror to speak out at this point, said Dunn's attorney suggested the jury start its deliberation at page 25. That was the page that outlined justifiable use of force.
It said, "The use of deadly force is justifiable if Michael Dunn reasonably believes that the force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm."
Turn to page 26 and it said, "The danger to Michael Dunn need not have been actual." He just had to believe "that the danger was real."
It goes on to say Dunn "had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force."
Ron Davis said, "In Florida, you have the stand your ground instruction, even though the defense does not file for stand your ground, it's in the instructions for self-defense. So it confuses juries."
McBath ended the interview by saying, "Justice for Jordan will be ultimately when we change the laws."
