And let’s FOCUS here. Marissa was with an abusive man who has children with multiple women and he himself claimed that he abused ALL of them. ALL. She fired a warning shot to keep him from abusing her again. He even said that he felt bad that she went to trial instead of accepting a plea of 3 years; she shouldn’t have to do ANY time. The trial did not go her way, however. 20 years.TWENTY YEARS.
Recognize that the same woman that everyone worshiped for the second degree murder charge (what Zimmerman will be tried for) is the SAME ONE who lead the prosecution against Marissa Alexander. I remember that day on Black Twitter; Angela Corey was getting great tweet shoutouts because she had no fucks to give about the press and controlled the media like little puppets in regards to Zimmerman. It was entertaining, I can’t lie. But I don’t need to be entertained in these cases; I need justice for Marissa Alexander.
Her petition on Whitehouse.gov expired because it failed to meet the threshold. Goddamn.
