Woman Jailed For 20 Years For Shooting at Black Man and Not Killing Him

Marissa Alexander 20 years

Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville Florida, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing warning shots at her abusive husband in an attempt to avoid a brutal beating from him. 

The decision to hand down such a severe sentence came after the court decided that it was a disgusting and illegal act to fire shots at a black man and not kill him.

Recent legal precedents in America have shown that once you shoot a black man and kill him, then no crime has been committed and you’re free to go.

George Zimmerman was the latest man to walk free after he admitted to shooting and murdering 17 year old Trayvon Martin, who thankfully was black, otherwise he may have been held accountable for his actions.

A petition for Marrissa Alexander has been set up to appeal the lengthy sentence, but there’s not a lot of hope for her as the racist American legal system won’t like to be seen to be lenient on a black person, who is also a woman.

More on this as it breaks.
