JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Day two of jury selection is underway in the Michael Dunn trial.

Potential jurors are filling out questionnaires to see what, if anything, they know about the case. They're also being asked if being sequestered for at least two weeks would be a hardship for them.

The judge announced Monday that the jury would be sequestered. That means they will put up in a hotel, and cut off from the Internet, TV and newspapers until a verdict is reached.

Dunn, 47, is accused of shooting and killing Jordan Davis, 17, after an argument over loud music.

It happened in November 2012 outside a Southside Gate station.

Twelve jurors and four alternates will be chosen to decide Dunn's guilt or innocence. He faces life in prison, if convicted.

I am surprised it is not being reported a jury has been seated. I love Jacksonville as they are not inclined to have camera's or morons filling their galleries. This murdering filth should be convicted in under 2 weeks.

No matter, this dumb Dunn idiot isn't going to get a fair trial anywhere by any juror. They will place ALL blame on him since it didn't stick on Zimmerman. And as for this 'causing a racial' divide: I will say it again. "The only people wanting a 'racial divide' is the thugs and thug loving people and News that want to portray these thugs as 'victims". I will not feel sorry for PARENTS who DON'T and WON'T take responsibility for WHERE their kids are or WHO they are with. The rest of the 'civilized population' have already agreed this idiot should have know better to confront a car full of ANYBODY over stupid loud music and he should be held accountable for his actions. I am also sad a young life(thug or not) was taken over the choice he took to get in a car with a combative thug driver. Had this been a black man shooting at a car load of young white thugs, 'claiming self defense', I would expect the SAME VERDICT. But whiners and trouble making loudmouths will not say a word when they kill themselves off daily, but will scream at the top of their lungs when a white person is involved. NO ONE will ever convince me a HUGE percentage of the Black population USES this type of crime to GAIN PITY and deflect SELF RESPONSIBILITY from themselves to perpetuate HATE between the races. I am White and I will not apologize for it. Nor will I say nothing and allow these thugs to PUNISH honest American people of all races by saying we ALL need gun control by the actions of a few idiots that use them haphazardly or by THE THOUSANDS of of BLACK thugs that kill each other DAILY in lawless, poor parts of towns they 'CHOSE' to live in. Again.. No one wins in this case, well except for the sorry parents, when they cash in on all their lawsuits.
