The Florida legislature has tried to end this mess by changing the law and yet it continues. Gov. Scott should just end it by giving Marissa Alexander a pardon.

They need to come out with a very serious statement about Domestic Violence and make a commitment to supporting survivors in their state.

Quite possibly the prosecutor is trying to show how tough she is while increasing the chances Ms. Alexander will be acquitted.
Often a punishment which is so obviously unreasonable reduces convictions. Few people will find a defendant guilty of stealing a loaf of bread to feed his children if it carries a death penalty.

Or the prosecutor is just stupid and vindictive. This is Florida after all. One can never be certain.

I think Corey just hates Black people. FL is infested with racist authorities like her.

She’s out to get revenge for some reason and it’s not because she’s been a model of decent behavior herself.

It’s sad when the prosecutor’s motives are a matter of speculation. After so many cases in which it seems Justice was not carried out, one does have to wonder

And of course, in the comments, a RWNJ from PJmedia (Tattler) gets Pres Obama wrong.

I came across this while reading about Marissa.

Florida Judge Orders Release of Elderly Man Serving 20 Years for Firing Two Warning Shots

A Florida judge has ordered a new trial for Ronald Thompson, the 65-year-old disabled veteran who was sentenced to 20 years in prison under Florida’s mandatory minimum law after firing two warning shots to scare off a gang of teenagers. In the meantime, the judge wants Thompson, who has already served three years of his 20 year sentence, released from prison.

Thompson’s story exemplifies just how awful mandatory minimum laws can be. In 2009, he was visiting an elderly friend at her daughter’s home when the woman’s 17-year-old grandson arrived. The boy’s mother instructed her mother (Thompson’s friend) not to let the teenager, who had a history of violence, into the house. Along with three other friends, the boy tried to force his way past his grandmother into the home. Thompson, fearing for his friend’s safety, fired two warning shots into the ground.

State Attorney Angela Corey charged Thompson with four counts of aggravated assault. What happened next was a nightmare for the disabled veteran:

Florida has had a problem of late, in exercising their good sense and adroit sentiment…
