Exclamation More proof Angela Corey is a monster

20 years! Wow. Listening there Zimmerman?:

Woman fires warning shot against her abusive husband. She gets 20 YEARS. She's black so how come Sharpton and company aren't out parading? I think this is far more worse a travesty of justice.

Oh wait, it's black on black. No one in the black community cares about that stuff. It's "business as usual".

http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/11/justic...html?hpt=hp_t3

Saying he had no discretion under state law, a judge sentenced a Jacksonville, Florida, woman to 20 years in prison Friday for firing a warning shot in an effort to scare off her abusive husband.
Marissa Alexander unsuccessfully tried to use Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law to derail the prosecution, but a jury in March convicted her of aggravated assault after just 12 minutes of deliberation.

NOTE: Next time, just kill him. You would've done less prison time.

Yeah man, that has been covered here, it's a disaster...at the same time, the woman was offered a 3 - year sentence.

I have no issue with a woman shooting an abusive dude to death. But, I don't make the laws. Still, some prosecutorial discretion...

Sounds like a good opportunity for a pardon.

Plea bargaining is bad for justice.
People that are guilty get lesser sentences due to pleas; those that fight for their innocence get caught in minimum sentence requirements if their gamble fails.

Welcome to our LOVELY justice system. It's been broken for decades but no one ever wants to fix it, cuz hey - it's fantastic at putting away poor people and giving rich people an edge

So it works as intended.

It's easy to find the solutions, but nobody wants to fix the problems.

More cases for the monster:

Charging a 12 year old as an adult, she has charged way more minors as adults than other prosecutors
Quote:
Cristian Fernandez case

In 2011 Corey's office oversaw a case in which 12-year-old Cristian Fernandez was accused of killing his two-year-old brother. Corey sought and received a grand jury indictment of Fernandez on charges of homicide and aggravated child abuse, and decided to try him as an adult.
Her indictment was a fraud in TM/ GZ case.
Quote:
On July 2, 2013, Corey was indicted by a Citizen grand jury for allegedly falsifying the arrest warrant and criminal complaint that led to second degree murder charges being brought against George Zimmerman. The indictment accuses Corey of intentionally withholding exculpatory photographic evidence of the injuries to George Zimmerman's head in her application for the arrest warrant

20 years for woman defending herself in domestic violence
Quote:
Marissa Alexander case

In May 2012, Corey prosecuted 31-year-old Marissa Alexander and obtained a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison. Alexander had a restraining order issued against her ex husband at the time and, during the day of the incident, had returned to their old home
65 year old war veteran, Corey insists he needs 20 years in jail for scaring off thugs by shooting weapon INTO THE GROUND to scare them off!
Quote:
Ronald Thompson case

In 2009, Ronald Thompson, a 65-year old Army veteran fired two shots into the ground to scare off teenagers who were demanding entry into his friend's house in Keystone Heights, Florida.[31] Corey prosecuted Thompson for aggravated assault, and after he refused a plea agreement with a three-year prison sentence, won a conviction that would carry a mandatory 20-year sentence under Florida's 10-20-Life statute. The trial judge, Fourth Circuit Judge John Skinner called the 20-year sentence "a crime in itself" and declared the 10-20-Life statute unconstitutional. Skinner gave Thompson three years instead.[31]

Angela Corey appealed the 3-year sentence and won, sending Thompson to prison for 20 years.
This woman is a monster!!
