Save Marissa Alexander From Prison

To be delivered to President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

Marissa Alexander is about to go to prison for 20 years because she pulled a gun on an abusive ex-husband. She fired but never shot or injured anyone. Despite Florida's "stand your ground" law, she will be sent to prison for 20 years!!! This is a horrible injustice, because George Zimmerman—who actually killed an innocent, unarmed teen—is free on bail! He actually took somebody's life and was charged with second degree murder, but he may never serve any time at all! How is this justice?!
There are currently 90 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!
