Regardless of what you think about "Stand your Ground" laws it's obvious that an injustice has been done in the case of Marissa Alexander. 20 years for a warning shot. what type of system do we live in where Marissa would have been better off if she had shot her boyfriend? I know some want to repeal the "Stand your Ground" law in Florida but that wont immediatly help Marissa.
One thing that will is a pardon from Florida Gov. Rick Scott. He has the power to pardon her and correct this injustice. Please sign the petition and add your voice to mine in asking Gov. Rick Scott to pardon Marissa Alexander.
