Good Morning AmeriKKKa (9/28/15): The world woke up to George Zimmerman trending on Twitter again. Why, you may ask– is he finally dead?! Nope. That little shit just decided to brag about killing Trayvon Martin again. Twitter has since removed the image, but refuses to ban Zimmerman, even as he flaunts his violent and deadly racism. #staywoke #farfromover

Marissa Alexander released from jail

Marissa Alexander, the Florida mother whose case became a rallying cry for anti-racism activists and survivors of domestic violence, was released today after three years of incarceration.

Alexander had faced up to 60 years behind bars for firing a single shot near her abusive husband, unable to convince a jury she had feared for her life. A hearing Tuesday confirmed the terms: Having pleaded guilty to assault in exchange for credit for time served, she will be subject to two years of electronic monitoring and house arrest, except for approved appointments and employment.

Circuit Court Judge James Daniel acknowledged that the case had drawn national attention but claimed his decision was “not based on any public opinion of any larger issue of public interest or social concern, but on the specific facts of the case.”  

Alexander’s case has long sparked outrage about the unequal application of the law for both black Americans and women. Alexander was prosecuted by Angela Corey, who was also the prosecutor in the trial of George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the February 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin. Corey did not appear at Tuesday’s hearing.


Outrageous case. Finally Marissa was released! Her prison sentence was really terrible idea! Our criminal justice system is something special. Black woman in fear for her life shoots hurts no one and faces up to 60 years in prison. White police officers kill hundreds of people every year, tell that they feared for their lives and this excuse always helps them to be acquitted. That’s crazy.
