— So it turns out there’s a way for a white guy to shoot black teenagers that’s so brazenly violent it’s beyond the purview of Stand Your Ground. Life without parole, plus 105 years, so that seems pretty unambiguous. Prosecutors didn’t press for the death sentence here, although if you’re not pressing for the death sentence when the guy is shooting directly at an SUV full of unarmed teenagers it’s hard to imagine how you could think of any case where it would be a reasonable punishment.

"A Florida man convicted of first-degree murder for shooting a teenager to death over loud music was sentenced to life without parole Friday. Michael Dunn, 47, was convicted of killing Jordan Davis, 17, in November 2012 after he shot into a SUV of four teenagers 10 times when an argument broke out over loud music coming from the teens’ vehicle. Dunn was sentenced to an additional 90 years in prison for three attempted murder convictions and another 15 years for firing into an occupied vehicle."
