The Crooks and Liars web site has the article Shocking Interview With Michael Dunn’s Neighbor: ‘He Always Wanted To Shoot Somebody’ that contains the video below.
Here is the YouTube description that goes with the video.
Charles Hendrix, Michael Dunn’s former next-door neighbor, describes violent behavior, lies, insurance fraud, cocaine use, bragging about putting a hit out on someone, and a first wife who said he’d held a gun to her head and threatened to kill her. He says Dunn bragged that he was smarter than everyone else and could outthink them.
I am not a lawyer, but I have seen one on television. I suppose none of what was said in this video interview would have been acceptable in court. It would prejudice the jury, I suppose. I guess the idea is to keep the jury focused on the facts of the case, and not let them be swayed by personalities. I get the reasoning, but sometimes I don’t think it serves justice. Perhaps the judge will be able to consider this information in the sentencing phase.
