In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Thursday night, they took her to task over her comments that race wasn’t a factor in Dunn’s murder of Jordan.
Essentially they think she’s not being genuine couldn’t have been paying attention to the trial.
Here’s their response to Cooper’s question as to their thoughts on Creshuna Miles‘ post trial comments.
“I don’t think she’s being genuine,” Jordan’s father, Ron Davis said. “For her as an African-American female to go into this case, with this type of evidence, with this type of rage, with [Dunn] saying ‘thug music,’ how can you as a juror not think this is about race?
“Before you even met Jordan, before you even looked at Jordan, looked at his clothes or anything else, you heard rap music, and so you assume it’s all African Americans in the car, and you said, ‘I hate that thug music.’ So it is about race.”
As we reported earlier, Miles, better known as juror No. 8, told CNN’s, Alina Machado, that she didn’t think race played into the case.
“I never once thought about, ‘Oh, this was a black kid, this was a white guy.’ Because that was—that wasn’t the case,” the 21-year-old said, adding that she was just looking for justice.
“I think she didn’t want it to be about race,” Davis’ mother, Lucia McBath, added, when asked by Cooper if she thought Miles was naive. “I think she really hoped that that was not an element of it. But it’s always been an element of what happened in our case.”
Miles even told reporters that she thought Dunn was a “nice guy.”
“That was very surprising,” McBath said. “Because in my mind nice guys don’t shoot unarmed teenagers.”
“If she thought he was a nice guy, that tells me she wasn’t paying attention to the testimony,” Ron Davis said. “When Miss Rouer testified, he never said that there was a weapon in the car. No gun, no stick, bottle, anything. And he drove to the hotel, ate pizza, drove back to his home the next day. Not one time did he say there was a weapon, and who would do that? If someone threatened you with a shotgun you would tell the closest person to you … [He] never said one word, never dialed 911. That doesn’t sound like a good person.”
