Your Call: What happens in the criminal justice system after a young black man is shot and killed?

On the September 10th edition of Your Call, we’ll talk about the new documentary 3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets. The film tells the story of Jordan Davis, an unarmed black 17 year-old shot to death after a dispute with a white man in a gas station parking lot on November 23, 2012.  

The killer, Michael Dunn, was ultimately convicted of first-degree murder. But the story of the trial shows the danger and subjectivity of Florida's Stand Your Ground self-defense laws.  Hear from Jordan Davis’s father Ron.


Ron Davis tragically lost his son, Jordan Davis. Their story and the court battle that ensued is the subject of the new documentary 3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets.
