Jordan Davis’ parents, Ron Davis and Lucia McBath, say they are “grateful” for Michael Dunn’s guilty verdict in the fatal shooting of their son in a re-trial on Wednesday.
“We are very grateful that justice has been served, justice not only for Jordan, but justice for Trayvon and justice all the nameless, faceless children and people that will never have a voice,” said McBath. “And Ron and I are committed to giving our lives to walking out Jordan’s justice and Jordan’s legacy.”
Davis’ father Ron added that he hoped the verdict would serve as reassurance to others.
“I wanted Jacksonville to be a shining example that you can have a jury made up of mostly white people, white men and to be an example to the rest of the world to stop the discriminatory practices, stop discriminating, stop looking where we have to look at juries and say what the makeup of juries are,” he said.
Dunn, 47, will face life in prison without parole, in addition to 60 years in prison from February convictions on three counts of attempted murder and one count of a gun charge.
