The Florida criminal justice system has sent two clear messages today," Brown said afterward. "One is that if women who are victims of domestic violence try to protect themselves, the `Stand Your Ground Law' will not apply to them.... The second message is that if you are black, the system will treat you differently."
Victor Crist was a Republican state legislator who crafted the "10-20-life" bill enacted in 1999 in Gov. Jeb Bush's first term. He said Alexander's sentence if she truly did fire a warning shot and wasn't trying to kill her husband is not what lawmakers wanted.
A judge threw out Alexander's "stand your ground" self-defense claim, noting that she could have run out of the house to escape her husband but instead got the gun and went back inside. Alexander rejected a plea deal that would have resulted in a three-year prison sentence and chose to go to trial. A jury deliberated 12 minutes before convicting her.
"The irony of the 10-20-life law is the people who actually think they're innocent of the crime, they roll the dice and take their chances, and they get the really harsh prison sentences," Newburn said. "Whereas the people who think they are actually guilty of the crime take the plea deal and get out (of prison) well before. So it certainly isn't working the way it is intended."
Her family says that doesn't erase the fact that a relatively law-abiding person a woman with a master's degree who was making positive contributions to society will endure prison for two decades over a single violation in which no one was hurt.
"She had a restraining order against him. Now Marissa is incarcerated and he's not," said her father, Raoul Jenkins. "I'm wrestling with that in my mind and trying to determine how the system worked that detail out. It's really frustrating

It's because of mandatory sentencing; it's too cut and dry and the judges have no leeway. They should be abolished.
That womans children will be raised by family while she does 20 years for shooting into a wall. Zimmerman goes free for murder.
It's totally messed up, Zimmerman had good lawyers. Who paid for that defense? I'm sure his family didn't have a half a million.

Yep, she probably had a public defender and you know these rightwingers were pouring money into his defense fund. Money can buy you freedom. Sad state of affairs. That's not justice.

Channon Christian - Chris Newsom Murder Trials Versus Liberal Racism. This was one of the most horrific crimes in recent memory in our country. But you are correct the media didn't cover it. The usual liberal racist' nonsense is to imply all black criminals because they are "poor" or "down trodden" or whatever somehow excuses their behavior. On the other hand the victims being better off somehow and whitey had it coming to them or as the liberal racists always imply, the criminal actions of a "coward" like the black murderers is rooted in a racist' white society.

Money bought O'bama the presidency, well that and some Chicago thug politics and cheating the system-where is outrage over that-certainly the FACT is O'bama stole the election using technology. Snowden has the goods.
