Supporters say Marissa Alexander sentencing shows ingrained racism in Florida’s courts.
"Two Florida towns, 125 miles apart. Two people firing weapons at unarmed aggressors, purportedly in self-defense."
"Marissa Alexander, a 32-year-old mother of three, fired what she described as a warning shot in the direction of her husband — against whom she had a protective order — and two stepsons. No one was injured, but she was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to 20 years."
