Marissa Alexander gets 20 years because it was decided by a prosecutor that she was not covered under Stand Your Ground Law. Her case is now the darling of the Anti SYG crowd because it demonstrates that the law is applied unjustly with the usual “Wink wink You Be Black, You Be Screwed” and therefore it has to be repealed. George Zimmerman was not initially charged but after the Media Frenzy, a special prosecutor was brought in and viola! He is now on his way to court where many hope he will be executed by drawn and quartering.
The special prosecutor brought in to nail Zimmerman and the prosecutor that sent Alexander to prison for 20 years? The same Angela Corey.
Maybe we have a prosecutor that does not know how (or politically hates) to apply Stand Your Ground laws?
