JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A small but vocal group of protesters gathered outside the Duval County Courthouse as jurors continued deliberations in the Michael Dunn trial.

Some held signs showing their support for the family of Jordan Davis. Others like the new Black Panther Party were much more vocal, even getting into shouting matches.

Despite that, there were no serious incidents outside the courthouse. A large number of officers with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office stood watch outside and patrolled the area.

Protesters are expected to be back out in force on Friday morning.

The so-called New Black Panthers need to crawl back under their rocks or go back to their handler. This trial is proceeding as it should and they don't need to put their two cents worth in it. I saw about four of them last week in front of the courthouse. By the time I got into my car, it was down to one man and one woman. No city needs that kind of trash in front of the courthouse during any trial.

I don't doubt for one minute that Jordan Davis didn't pick up the tripod and show it to create a "I have a weapon" just to either try and scare Michael Dunn or to see what his reaction would be. It's sad his parents have had to face the reality their son started this whole thing and he certainly didn't learn to holler the obscenities he was yelling in church. His capbability of rage far exceeded what a normal person's would be if asked to lower the volume on a radio or TV. No conception of being respectable was shown on Jordan Davis' part.

let me clear up your confusion,, reverse the roles... do you for a minute think they would have called the police ??? he simply considered the issue resolved & that's that... i would have done the same...the body count would have been 4 instead of 1 dead...

Black panthers put out bounty on Zimmerman. Their leaders need to be in jail. They ignored the facts in that case. Martin was violent, thief, mixed pot and purple lean, and shopping for street guns at one point to make in his own words make a snitch "bleed enough for him". They never addressed why a thug who doubled back and attacked someone is such hero in their eyes. To me that signals if a person is black they can't break any laws or do any wrong. I feel Dunn will be convicted simply because he fled the scene, and did not contact authorities. He shot into car full people and felt he did not need to report it, even though they threatened him. That part of his story does not add up. For the boys part turning the music down is REQUIRED. Playing music above 70 db is violation of most noise ordinances that is 70 db outside of your own car felt by the car beside you which clearly was the case. I don't force my music on others unless giving them ride. I see no reason why black people should say you have to listen to our music, and there is nothing you can do about it.
