Does stand your ground only mean stand your ground if you’re white in FLA? Marissa Alexander’s case seems to prove just that. In 2010, she stood her ground after being assaulted by her ex husband. She Testifies to being trapped in her house by her ex; now here is the kicker. She fired one single shot into the air, which scared her ex husband away. She was then arrested and her “Stand Your Ground” defense tossed out by the Judge. She was scheduled to be sentenced to upto 20 years in April, but has since been delayed because of the George Zimmerman case.
How sad is that reality; a black woman defends herself against a man she had a restraining order against and does not kill him but fires a warning shot and was about to face 20 years.
George Zimmerman followed, or should I say stalked Trayvon Martin, who was in his father’s own neighborhood, and killed him. Then gets out on only $15,000 bail. FLA you just ain’t smelling right, you’re looking awfully dirty.
