Default Black "Floria" Mom Gets 20 Yrs For Firing Warning Shots

Yet another example of that "good ol' Florida justice". Makes "total" sense to me

-------------

(CBS News) JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Florida woman who fired warning shots against her allegedly abusive husband has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Heard about it yesterday. Was against it.

Sounds retarded at first glance, but can't make any judgements without knowing all the facts. If her husband wasn't really abusive, and they just got in a marital fight, and she started shooting bullets everywhere, it's potentially understandable.

If she was actually trying to get him to back the fuck off, total fail on the justice system's part.

In Florida, if you're going to fire a gun, make sure it's pointed at someone first.

ha ha - here we go...



notice how they skip all the details in that case and just go right to pushing the emotional baiting buttons

the facts


This has NOTHING to do with the Zimmerman case. She went to the place HE WAS LIVING. If you feel threatened, then LEAVE. Leaving the house, going outside and grabbing a gun and going back inside shows intent to do bodily harm. She showed criminal intent to do bodily harm and was not some poor victim who stood her ground.


Let's review- she walked back outside the house, grabbed her gun from the vehicle, and then went back inside the house, fired it at chest level, penetrating walls inside the house.


Alexander tried unsuccessfully to invoke Florida's "stand your ground" law and rejected a plea deal for a lesser sentence


you take your chances with juries - anything can happen



A jury convicted her of aggravated battery with a firearm.

Florida's "10-20-life" law that targets gun crimes required the judge sentence her to 20 years after she rejected a plea deal.



She rolled the dice and that's what she got.


bam!

Next case!


FL's mandatory minimuns do suck though

She's in jail for missing. She also didn't get the free million dollar defense.
