Why Couldn’t Marissa Alexander Stand Her Ground In Florida?

What happened to Marissa Alexander sure sounds alot like ‘standing your ground’: her abusive husband came after her, choked her, and when she finally broke free, she grabbed a gun fired a single warning shot into ceiling … so why is she set to serve 20 years in jail?

Well, we imagine her prosecutor Angela Corey, who’s also charging George Zimmerman, has the unfulfilling answers. The Florida Times Union‘s Charles Broward reported on April 21, “A judge denied [Alexander] immunity in a Stand Your Ground hearing. And after a jury found her guilty, she faces a mandatory term of 20 years in prison.” Yes, there’s the rage-inducing fact that Zimmerman who allegedly pursued and killed Trayvon Martin was allowed to walk free that night while Alexander is going to spend 20 years of her life in prison for a single warning shot. But it’s also complex in that, those seeking justice for Trayvon Martin may have to side with a prosecutor who give denies Alexander’s (and the NAACP’s) plea for a “stand your ground” ruling, like the one that was initially afforded to Zimmerman.-[source]
