Marissa Alexander Could Get 60 In The Iron College!

Mom of three who fired a slug into the ceiling could get more time if the state prosecutor finds enough evidence to charge her. Marissa Alexander's trial will be coming up soon. The controversial shooting has proven that Florida's stand your ground law a joke. White guy kills Black person and gets no time in the iron college. Black person fires a slug and its lock 'em up!

A horrible result of shooting into a ceiling put Marissa Alexander in the iron college for 20 years.

A mistrial has her out for the time being. But the state prosecutor is seeking for longer sentence. She wants to put Alexander in the iron college for life. Just for shooting a slug into the ceiling to keep her abusive husband away.

The state known for its stupidity continues to be in the news again. They flock to Florida because of their low income taxes, the warmth and the weak gun laws.

We allow a man shoot and kill an unarmed teen. The teen was carrying a pack of Skittles and an Arizona ice tea on his way to his father's home. The shooter says the teen "was up to no good" and "those fucking punks always get away!"

We allow a man shoot and kill an unarmed teen. The teen and his friends were at a gas station and they get into an argument over hip-hop music being played loud. The shooter had called hip-hop "rap crap" or "thug music".

We allow a man shoot and kill an unarmed man. The man was texting on the phone in a movie theater. The shooter claimed that his life was in danger over a bag of popcorn and the man's towering height. The shooter had confronted other moviegoers over them being on the phone.

Wikipedia has a brief detail about the situation. It involves Angela Corey, a controversial state attorney who is accused of institutional racism. She would allow this woman who has no criminal record get life in the iron college for shooting into a ceiling

Angela Corey, the Florida state attorney who prosecuted the 31-year-old Marissa Alexander for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and obtained a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison generated controversy in the midst of the Trayvon Martin case.

Alexander argued that she fired a warning shot from a gun she was licensed to carry to defend herself from a life-threatening beating from her self-admitted abusive estranged husband, Rico Gray.

Alexander's shot hit the wall and deflected into the ceiling, injuring no one. Alexander, who had no previous criminal record or arrests, attempted a Stand Your Ground defense prior to trial but was unsuccessful.

State Attorney Corey met with the defendant and offered her a three year plea deal. Alexander rejected the offer and took her case to trial. A jury convicted her in twelve minutes and, because of the Florida 10-20-Life mandatory minimum statute, she was sentenced to a 20 years in prison.

Corey has been criticized for her handling of the case by Florida Democratic Congresswoman, Corrine Brown, who argued that Corey overcharged Alexander and the result of Alexander's case was a consequence of institutional racism.

Rev. Jesse Jackson, anti-domestic violence advocates, civil rights groups, and others have also supported the call for Alexander's release from prison.
Angela Corey wants to put Marissa Alexander in the iron college for life.
On September 26, 2013, an appellate court ordered a new trial, finding that the jury instructions in Alexander's trial impermissible and it shifted the burden of proof from the prosecution to the defense.

Alexander was released on bail on November 27, 2013 and required to stay under house arrest.

Angela Corey is now seeking to put Marissa in prison for 60 years rather than the original 20.

This is the woman who allow George Zimmerman to walk. Corey let Zimmerman continue on his path to destruction. Since his freedom, the asshole has created over a dozen incidents that would have put a Black person in the iron college.

This is the woman who allowed Michael Dunn get off with murder of Jordan Davis on a technicality. Although Dunn got 60 in the iron college, he didn't get life in the iron college for his deliberate murder of an unarmed teen.

This is a travesty of justice.

How could you put a woman who fired a slug into the ceiling of her own home in the iron college for life?

Here's a commentary from The Black Authority. Take discretion in viewing this. He's offering an opinion that may not be suitable for most audiences.
