The entertainer, also a native of Florida recently spoke to Huffington Post about the murder of Jordan Davis, his killer Michael Dunn and the verdict that ignored the life that was lost.
“I’m not going to stay away from Florida, so I’m not going to blame the state of Florida, but to a degree, I don’t know what’s going on in the head of some of the people in Florida. The people in the decision making process.”
Some of the people in the jury, maybe. It’s issues like that that [make] me sad as a man, fearful to a degree as a black man, that there are people who will use the, ‘Oh no, I was defending myself,’ the Stand Your Ground laws.”
“I was thinking about this myself, because I thought what if I’m in a position where I feel like I’m being threatened?” Brady went on. “I have my daughter, and I’m out with her a lot … I’m out with her mom sometimes, I’m out with my friends. I may want to defend myself, and what do you do when you’re in that position?
“You don’t know what you will do. So I can’t judge the guy, because I wasn’t there. But I will say with some of the forensic evidence that was presented, it’s a shame on all accounts, and it makes me sad that we lost another brother to this needless violence.”
