Zimmerman verdict spotlights 2012 'stand your ground' case
Like George Zimmerman, Marissa Alexander claimed self-defense. But she was found guilty and got 20 years in prison.
Zimmerman case spotlights 'Stand Your Ground' case: Marissa AlexanderPolice handout
George Zimmerman's acquittal has brought attention to another Florida shooting case.
George Zimmerman’s acquittal has given new life to another controversial Florida shooting case.
Scroll down to see: Your state and 'stand your ground' law
In May 2012, Marissa Alexander was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a bullet at a wall in 2010 to scare off her husband, who she believed was threatening her, reported The Associated Press. Nobody was hurt.
The 31-year-old African-American mother tried to claim self-defense and invoked Florida's "stand your ground" law, but the judge would not allow it. A jury found Alexander guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
After the Zimmerman verdict was announced, her much-debated case began to receive a lot of attention once again on social media.
Gallery: Reaction to Zimmerman verdict grows
According to Reuters, under the stand-your-ground law, which was approved in 2005 and has been copied in some form by about 30 other states, people fearing for their lives can use deadly force without having to retreat from a confrontation, even when it is possible.
The statute was central to Zimmerman's defense because police initially declined to arrest Zimmerman based on his self-defense argument for shooting Trayvon Martin and right to use deadly force under Florida law, reported Reuters.
Alexander said she feared for her life during an argument with her estranged husband, Rico Gray, against whom she had a restraining order. According to The Associated Press, she went out to her vehicle to retrieve the gun she legally owned, came back inside and ended up firing a shot into the wall, which ricocheted into the ceiling.
State Attorney Angela Corey, who also oversaw the prosecution of Zimmerman in the Martin case, stood by the handling of Alexander's case, AP reported. Corey said she believed Alexander aimed the gun at the man and his two sons, and the bullet she fired could have ricocheted and hit any of them.

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.
Because Alexander fired a gun while committing a felony, the state’s mandatory-minimum gun law dictated the 20-year sentence, AP said.
The state's "10-20-life" law was implemented in 1999 and is credited with helping to lower the violent-crime rate. Anyone who shows a gun in the commission of certain felonies gets an automatic 10 years in prison. Fire the gun, and it's an automatic 20 years. Shoot and wound someone, and it's 25 years to life.
"The Florida criminal justice system has sent two clear messages today," Rep. Corinne Brown, D-Fla., who had been an advocate for Alexander, said after the sentencing. "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."

George Zimmerman

In 2005, at the age of 21, Zimmerman was charged with assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest, after shoving an officer while a friend of Zimmerman's was being questioned about underage drinking. The charges were reduced, then dropped when Zimmerman entered a pre-trial diversion program. Also in 2005, Zimmerman's ex-fiancée filed a restraining order against him, alleging domestic violence. Zimmerman requested a reciprocal restraining order. Both orders were granted.[32][43] The incidents were raised by prosecutors at Zimmerman's initial bond hearing. The judge described the incidents as "run of the mill" and "somewhat mild" and rejected the prosecution's claim that the incidents demonstrated that Zimmerman was violent or a threat to the community.[32][44][45]

They need to rewrite that law and get some better prosecutors. Jurors have seen too many CSI, NCIS, etc shows and expect nothing shy of the act being committed on video with witnesses to convict. There is circumstantial evidence that is pretty damning. What a damn shame for both the Zimmerman and Martin family. A real tragedy that shouldn't have happened.
Now back to the politics and fauxbox propaganda.

Self-defense and not the "Stand Your Ground" law was used in Mr. Zimmerman's defense. The prosecutors were hand-picked to try this case. Both the prosecutors and the defense were involved in selecting the jury. The circumstantial evidence clearly proved Mr. Zimmerman could not be convicted as there was "reasonable doubt". The jurors took their jobs very seriously and made their decisions based on evidence and the law.

None of us were in the courtroom every day. We weren't there when jury instructions were given. We weren't there when this jury had to make one of the most difficult decisions of their lives. These six women (some of which were mothers) took their jobs seriously and did the best possible job with the information they were provided. We have the best judicial system in the world and should accept their findings. Based on the evidence, they found Mr. Zimmerman not guilty of second degree murder or manslaughter. They genuinely believed Mr. Zimmerman thought his life was in danger.

Hagel: Top military brass to be cut 20 percent
Posted: Jul 16, 2013 3:24 PM EDT
Updated: Jul 16, 2013 7:44 PM EDT

By LARA JAKES
AP National Security Writer
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.(AP)- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Tuesday he has ordered 20 percent "across the top" budget cuts for his Pentagon staff and that of his top brass.

The reductions, which he did not spell out in detail, are for the 2015-19 period. They will apply to his office, that of the Joint Chief's chairman and also the Pentagon headquarters offices of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

It is one element of a broader effort by the Pentagon to adjust to forced spending reductions that already have resulted in the furloughing of civilian workers. Hagel said he believed Pentagon headquarters staff must share in the sacrifices.

AG Holder criticizes stand-your-ground laws

By PETE YOST and MIKE SCHNEIDER
Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla.(AP)- Stand-your-ground laws that allow a person who believes he is in danger to use deadly force in self-defense "sow dangerous conflict" and need to be reassessed, Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday in assailing the statutes that exist in many states.

Holder said he was concerned about the Trayvon Martin slaying case in which Florida's stand-your-ground law played a part.

But he added: "Separate and apart from the case that has drawn the nation's attention, it's time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods."

There's a bit of a domino effect undercutting President Barack Obama's health care law.

Enforcement of the overhaul's central mandate — that individual Americans must have coverage — could be weakened by the Obama administration's recent delay of a requirement that larger employers provide medical insurance.

That's because the delayed rule also required companies to report health insurance details for employees. Without employers validating who's covered, a scofflaw could lie, and the government would have no easy way to check.

The Treasury Department said Tuesday it expects any impact to be minor, since most people will not risk telling the government a lie. Still, it's another incentive for uninsured people to ignore a new government requirement that for many will cost hundreds of dollars.

"If Americans begin to figure out that the individual requirement is toothless for 2014 ... younger, healthier uninsured people will stay away in droves," said Edward Fensholt, director of compliance services for the Lockton Companies, a benefits consulting firm that advises employers. With fewer healthy people in the pool, premiums in new health insurance markets coming this fall could rise.

As far as the word 'Cracker", I know that in the state of Florida that term is used by residents who were born and raised and have remained in Florida throughout their life. "Cracker" used by most by most whites and local Indians just means a real Floridian, an original and not a transplant from somewhere else.
When Cracker is used by blacks toward whites, I take that as a racial slur because that is how they use it, in a derogatory tone.

As far as that case about the black woman shooting into the wall at her husband. She was clearly guilty of "intent to harm" as I see it. In fact she walked out to her car to retrieve the weapon, she didn't have to go back inside, if she'd been in any danger she wouldn't have. She also endangered her kids. So she is where she belongs IMO.

I posted some data that was not the current correct numbers. I had posted that only 33% of voters are registered as Republican. The latest numbers according to the Pew Research Center shows it has dropped to 28% registered as Republican Party.
Sorry for the misinformation on the dying GOP. With so many fleeing from the crazy ass Repubs it's hard to keep up with.
