A number of Southwest Georgia residents where disappointed to hear Michael Dunn didn't get charged with murder in the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis this past weekend.

"The details and the things that we had learned about the case that should have been one that the jury should have made a consensus on," said Jack & Jill member Susan Hayes.

The group with Hayes was holding a mock trial at the offices of Parks & Crump when they heard the verdict. Benjamin Crump was the family attorney for Trayvon Martin.

Hayes says the case provided a teaching point for the Jack & Jill program. 

"Everything in moderation," Hayes said. "It might not be fair sometimes but that is the society that we live in, we are judged.  Those are life lessons that you take with you as you move along in the future."

The group was able to take tours of Florida State and A&M over the weekend as well.
