JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Trial spectators will not be allowed to wear items that support Jordan Davis or Michael Dunn during the upcoming trial, according to a judge's ruling Thursday.

Dunn is accused of shooting and killing the 17-year-old at a Southside gas station on Black Friday last year, after an argument over loud music.  Dunn claims he fired in self-defense.

The parents of Jordan Davis appeared in court, along with Dunn on Thursday as Judge Russell Healey ruled on key motions.

[Special Coverage: Jordan Davis Killing]

One motion asked to prohibit people in court from wearing clothing in support of the defendant or victim.  The judge granted that motion.

Judge Healey denied a request to allow the jury to inspect the crime scene, a Gate gas station at Baymeadows Road and Southside Boulevard, during the trial.

The judge granted a third motion allowing the father of Jordan Davis to stay in the courtroom during the trial, even though he'll be called as a witness.

Dunn's trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 23.

One daming fact in this case is Dunn didn't call the police himself. Discharge of firearm in city limits requires he report it and reason he discharged his weapon. Equally damming for Davis side it is reported the driver of his vech is convicted felon and that he stopped his vech after fleeing the scene to get rid of something then come back to the scene of the crime. If my best friend is bleeding out in my back seat and I am 2 blocks from a damn hospital I am omw there at record speed screw traffic lights and caution deal with after they treat him. Not wait 12 to 15 more mins for help to arrive after I go back. To say he was justified in taking off is ok but logic dictates get your butt to hospital with HIM NOW. Not go back as he is dying.

And you people know exactly what and who you are. It makes me SICK you don't know WHERE or WHAT your TEENAGE kids are doing or where they are 99% of the time. And some end up dead BECAUSE OF IT. ITS YOUR FAULT, not ANYONE else's or the gun laws, IT'S YOURS, UNTIL THEY TURN 18 OR THEY GO IN FRONT OF A JUDGE AND GET EMANCIPATION.. Every where I go I hear and see UNCIVILIZED behaviors of YOUR KIDS here in Jax. Just today I was in a line and the TEACHER beside us was talking about how in Ed White high School the kids are having sex and performing fellatio on the boys between classes IN THE HALL WAYS AND NOTHING IS SAID OR DONE ABOUT IT, NOT EVEN BY THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION....Your lovely darling kids????? THAT'S WHAT MY TAX DOLLARS ARE HARD AT WORK DOING AT THAT SCHOOL?? You people better take a lesson from the wonderful comedian, Bill Cosby start WATCHING YOUR KIDS...but then again, another kid, another welfare check? YOU WANT TO BE TREATED EQUAL, START ACTING IT. absolutely disgusting

Too bad that wasn't how it was with Zimmerman,with their stupid Black panthers 'BOUNTY' on him,(which they should have gotten arrested for). IT IS ILLEGAL to put a dead or alive bounty out on another person IN THIS COUNTRY, maybe not in that other 'uncivilized' aids ridden country, but not this one.

That is the way it should be. No jury member should be influenced in any way.
