HBO On Demand will continue to feature the presentation of “3 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets” until December 21, 2015. This documentary is very well produced, written and directed. It shows exactly what occurred during, before and after the State of Florida (Jordan Davis) v. Michael Dunn trial. There is some vulgarity in the broadcast and discretion is to be advised.
HBO narrative film tells the life story, and then sudden death, of a teenager named Jordan Davis. This seventeen year old was shot to death because of loud music being played on a radio which he occupied with three other young black youths. Three & a half minutes and ten bullets later, Davis was dead.
This past Thanksgiving weekend, a local internet provider aired free premium channels, which included free HBO, if you were not already subscribed. This writer had the opportunity to watch the show, which will still be available next month on HBO – on Demand. This program gives most of the background to what happened on the Black Friday of 2012. The emotional, gut-wrenching film gives many scenes from the trial, telephone conversations to Dunn while he was incarcerated, witness testimonies, scenes of Jacksonville Florida and words from the grieving parents (Lucy McBath and Ron Davis) of Jordan Davis.
Could you imagine being the parent of an only child who was gunned down and slain? The parents might have gotten satisfaction from justice being served; nonetheless, their child will never be walking on this earth again.
