Tell me again you country is not racist.
The court is deliberately omitting the restraining order.

The restraining order forbids her husband from entering the property. She has no obligation to abandon her property.

The court omits "contributing negligence" of the husband.

Throughout America, there's some well-known black activists such as Jesse Jackson and several others who are in support of Alexander, but what many of these activists don't quite realize, is most women (of any race) are not in solidarity with black men.

They should be having their hands full keeping their brethren from killing each other out of existence, though most of these activists tend to not care and/or not wanna deal with that issue.

[9/26/13] Could charges be dropped against Marissa Alexander?

Latest update of special significance.

http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/09/26/could-charges-...

``Rep. Corrine Brown, a Democrat who has become one of Alexander’s strongest supporters and also joined the show, called for the charges against Alexander to be dropped entirely. "When it comes to Miss Alexander, I am hoping that the prosecutor and the community will come together and heal, and drop all charges so she can be home at Thanksgiving with her family."``

I see that MSNBC is ecstatic over Marissa Alexander getting a new trial. People! She is not getting a new trial because she is innocent of the charges. She is getting a new trial simply because of a technicality. The judge did not give proper instructions to the jury.

“We reject her contention that the trial court erred in declining to grant her immunity from prosecution under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law,” wrote Judge James H. Daniel,“but we remand for a new trial because the jury instructions on self-defense were erroneous.”
Somebody has done their HOMEWORK!!!

No one was killed, he shouldn't have been there, she has spent some time in prison and this should be her lesson not to try anything like this again, her going to jail for 20 years is ridiculous, I would understand if she went to his home and pulled this stunt but he was on her property and if he was never there it would not have happened, he's should go to jail. Saying she went back into the house well her children were there duh, Zimmerman not saying in the car should mean he should go to prison for 20 years.
The 20 years is mandatory for the type of gun crime she committed, please read Florida Law...

Both the cases of Alexander and Miriam Carey were certainly considered injustices while the outcomes of both the Zimmerman verdict and recent, though obscure, case in the following link below* were fair and justified -
