    Running here bud:

    20 years A bit harsh
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    In Texas, you can be arrested for a "warning shot". BUt this does seem excessive and unfair.

    Everything I saw on this case....... the bullet didn't go into the ceiling, it went into a cabinet door right next to his head, and she just missed.... the assertion of the DA was that she was trying to kill him and missed. The things I saw that they showed, seemed to support that conclusion. Her story didn't fit the evidence.

    25 to life if you shoot someone, whether they die or not.

    What is the NRA going to do? Mrs. Alexander was so far in the wrong, it's not even funny. I'm not certain it was 20 years wrong, but her actions were not the right ones. She does deserve some jail time.

    Is it just me that noticed that the congress women thought that the penalty for the stand your ground law was applied harshly in this case but applauded the
    way it is being pursued in another case. To me this is blatant discrimination. What happened to equality within the law?

    I think she would have stood a better chance using a Postpartem Depression defense.

    Well, she used the "he's hit me in the past " defense...... what I heard her say, she was ticked at him and wanted to either 1) scare him, or 2) kill him, and by what she said.... I took it she wanted to kill him and then tried to come up with a really poor story when she didn't succeed. I think she got what she deserved.
