Apparently if he is acquitted, he is not only immune from civil suits, he can also sue the cops

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard was not what I meant...

Wow...seriously???  Florida is more messed up than I thought...

Our need to learn should always outweigh our need to be right

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren't so busy denying them.

I agree. I would never voluntarily live in Florida.

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

Marissa Alexander of Florida faces up to 20 years in prison.  The jury, in just 12 minutes, did not accept her stand-your-ground argument.  What horrible crime did she commit that the members of the jury would not apply the stand-your-ground law?


Alexander was in the master bathroom at the time, and Gray tried to force his way in. When she came out, he screamed and cursed at her while preventing her from leaving the bedroom. "I was like forcing her back with my body," reported Gray, who is seven inches taller than Alexander and outweighs her by 100 pounds.  


When Alexander managed to get by, she ran through the kitchen to the garage, where she says she realized she did not have the keys to her car, could not call for help because she had left her cellphone behind, and could not escape because the garage door was not working. Instead she grabbed her handgun from her car and headed back through the kitchen, where Gray confronted her again.


In his deposition Gray admitted he "had told her if she ever cheated on me I would kill her" and during the fight said, "If I can't have you, nobody can." He conceded he "was going towards her" when Alexander fired a single shot, high and to his right, that went through the kitchen wall and lodged in the ceiling of the living room. Finally he left, along with his two sons.



That's right, she didn't even shoot the guy that had a history of beating women.  But some creative prosecutor saw a chance to get a win under their belt, charged her with aggravated assualt with a weapon, got the conviction, and now she faces 20 years in jail.

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.
