In her own home, threatened with physical harm by a man with a record of abuse, by a man with a restraining order...
As much as I despise this law, this seems to be the very kind of incident it was designed for, and yet...George Zimmerman is allowed to use, and Marissa Alexander is not. Please someone explain to me why.
Frankly speaking, if Marissa had killed her husband, and then told any old story she needed to, she might not be in jail today.
That's Florida for you.
That's why I just as soon it was cut off from our country and allowed to float away.
