Hiya!

I am Rosie; lifelong liberal and Southwest Floridian, year 'round.

I have been wanting to be here for a while now - finally DU got my confirmation link to click. So here I am!

Nice to meet all y'all. If I know you under another name elsewhere, let me know? I am RosieS everywhere, fighting the good fight against the overwhelming tide of RW ignorance. At your service.

Regards from Rosie

Marissa Alexander, Woman Sentenced To 20 Years For Firing Warning Shot, Gets New Trial

Source: Huffington Post

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. A Florida appeals court is ordering a new trial for a woman sentenced to 20 years to prison after she fired a warning shot in a wall during a dispute with her husband.

Seems the SYG defense cannot be used in the new trial.

Anyway, Alexander was overcharged AND overconvicted by the same Republican State Atty. in charge of Zimmerman's lack of prosecution.

Hopefully, Ms. Alexander gets justice this time.
