A miscarriage of justice if there ever was one...

Absolutely unjust this sentence...it is documented the history of domestic disputes and restraining orders against this man she feared....how is this possible???

I've worked in the prison environment for 8 yrs and if she didn't shoot the abuser who in her defense was in feared for her life well that just isn't right. I realize that each state has their own laws but it seems to me that that is one law that should be changed besides she didn't kill or hurt anyone which in my eyes she would have been justified in doing so.

what? What do you think she was convicted of? What do you think the facts in this case are? Or would you prefer to get the emotional one-sided biased crap this media is allowing you to have. Think before you react. That's why we have so many things that are corrupt running our country!

This is the sort of injustice that upsets the black community. Smh! She didn't even kill anyone and is serving a 20 year sentence. How is this equal justice?

I agree that 20 years seems excessive, but I also urge you to research the facts of the case. At the time of the incident, she had a restraining order against her husband so she shouldn't have been in that house in the first place. She also left the house, got her run and ran back in the house, that doesn't really sound like self defense. 20 years doesn't make sense, but don't listen to everything you hear through the media!

This goes beyond Kafkaesque. What sort of insanity allows a murderer to walk free (George Zimmerman) and an innocent woman (Ms. Alexander) to be sentenced to jail for twenty years--and for trying to protect herself against her husband who was, at the time, in violation of a restraining order when he confronted her. She sought to protect herself and did so with no harm to anything but inanimate property. Given the madness of Florida law and the monumental stupidity and bias of some of its...

This goes beyond Kafkaesque. What sort of insanity allows a murderer to walk free (George Zimmerman) and an innocent woman (Ms. Alexander) to be sentenced to jail for twenty years--and for trying to protect herself against her husband who was, at the time, in violation of a restraining order when he confronted her. She sought to protect herself and did so with no harm to anything but inanimate property. Given the madness of Florida law and the monumental stupidity and bias of some of its jurists, Ms. Alexander would have fared far better if she had mortally wounded her husband. Perhaps we should post a sign at the northernmost border of Florida: "Caution, you are about to fall down the rabbit hole into a place where up is down and back is forth."

What is this world coming to? Some laws are to be expected, but the circumstance surrounding the incident should be taken under consideration. We are losing common sense.
