RELEASE MARISSA ALEXANDER - NOW!!!

To be delivered to Governor Rick Scott

Petition Statement

Overturn Marissa Alexander's unjust, unreasonable, insane 20 year prison sentence for her "crime" of self-defense. Release and drop the charges in their entirety against this non-criminal, non-violent victimized mother immediately.
There are currently 115 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

Marissa Alexander is a 31 yr. old mother of three - a battered woman who only fired a warning shot at her attacker. This was in "Stand Your Ground" Florida...the same state George Zimmerman killed an unarmed teen and was initially allowed to walk, without charges. Marissa was not only denied that same right, and she didn't even KILL the guy. She successfully stopped the attack. And now she has been sentenced to 20 YEARS IN PRISON...an OUTRAGE.
