Black Juror in Dunn Trial Says Race Wasn't a Factor

Comments

Twenty-one-year-old Creshuna Miles has revealed her identity as Juror No. 8 in the Michael Dunn murder trial. Miles was the youngest, and one of two Black women on a jury that failed to find Dunn guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Miles and fellow jurors voted 9-3 to convict Dunn of 3 counts of attempted second-degree murder and one of count of hurling a deadly missile.

In an interview with CNN's Alicia Machado, Miles says she never once thought "'Oh, this was a Black kid, this was a White guy.’ Because… that wasn’t the case," she said.

So how does she respond to people who say this was about a White guy getting away with shooting and killing a Black boy?

"I would tell them that they really should knowledge themselves on the law,” she said, adding that she saw this as a case about "justice."

Miles revealed that she believed Dunn was guilty of second-degree murder for shooting and killing Davis, but she and fellow jurors just couldn't come to an agreement.
