HBO Picks Up “Thug Music” Documentary About Jordan Davis Shooting

HBO Picks Up “Thug Music” Documentary About Jordan Davis Shooting Trial

HBO picks up the “Thug Music” documentary, 3 1/2 Minutes about the trial for the murder of black teen Jordan Davis by Michael Dunn, in Jacksonville, Fla., in November 2012.

3 1/2 Minutes, which was directed by Marc Silver, made its premiere at the Sundance Music Festival last week. HBO bought the U.S. television rights to the movie and will air it later this year after its theatrical release.

Shiela Nevins, president of HBO Documentary Films said, “I am grieved that these continuing stories are everyday matters swept away. By bringing this powerful film to HBO audiences we hope to elevate the national conversation around these tragic issues.”

The jury deadlocked on the first-degree murder charge while returning a guilty verdict on three counts of attempted murder during the trial last February. Michael Dunn was retried and found guilty of first-degree murder for Jordan Davis’ murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Last year, Jordan Davis’ family attorney John Phillips released a damning video of a neighbor, Charles Hendrix, slamming Michael Dunn as a bully and someone who was hard to get a long with.

Watch the trailer for “3 1/2 Minutes” via Participant Media:

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge dismissed second-degree murder and other charges against Michael Johnson, 30, for the death of North Carolina teenager Phylicia Barnes, whose body was found in the Susquehanna River in 2010.

Judge John Addison Howard dismissed all the charges saying the prosecution’s “arguably circumstantial” case against Michael Johnson was insufficient evidence. He ordered Johnson be freed on Tuesday.

The State’s Attorney vows to appeal the ruling.

Johnson was arrested and charged with Phylicia Barnes’ murder in 2012, after she disappeared while visiting relatives in Baltimore. Her body was found several months later in the Susquehanna River.

Michael Johnson was convicted of second-degree murder in 2013. A new trial was ordered after a judge ruled that prosecutors had withheld evidence about a key witness.
