Not the justice she deserved (but thank goodness Marissa is getting out)

Great press release on the injustices to Marissa Alexander. As you probably know, Alexander is the Florida woman who was not allowed to use Florida’s Stand Your Ground (SYG) law in her defense after she fired warning shots to try to scare away an abusive husband who was ignoring a protective order against him by accosting her and her new baby). She was originally jailed for 20 years for firing the warning shot into the ceiling!! Later the (conservative) prosecutor went after her with a 60 year jail sentence!!!
