Marissa Alexander - 20 Years For Warning Shot

To be delivered to The Florida State House, The Florida State Senate, and Governor Rick Scott

Petition Statement

Judge Daniel's handed out a 20 year senetence to Marissa Alexander for firing a warning shot at her abusive husband. Unjust to say the least. No wonder why Florida has such a high recidivism rate.
There are currently 63 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!

Petition Background

Florida's stand your ground defense appears only to apply when you shoot someone dead. Marissa Alexander fired a warning shot at her abusive husband, once of the bullets went through the childrens room. The bullet did not hit anyone. She received a 20 year sentence from an unjust judge and prosecution team. Instead of us examining other countries laws, we should be examining our own, without delay and political red tape.
