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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
