Note: I have nothing against the woman in this article, just the fact that when it fits my needs, then I will support it. I feel for her.
This is not equal justice under the law!

Apparently, to the NAACP, Stand Your Ground only applys if your black and want to use it as a defense.

"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
She had her day in court,but since there wasn't a large media circus she was convicted and you couldn't care less until the words Stand Your Ground came up and you saw an opportunity to flap your lips again,go crawl back in your hole.

looks like a justified case of self defense, a woman being attacked by a grown man. hope she comes out ok.
Well, the jury heard the case and convicted her.
Not being there it's easy to say the wrong outcome was the end result. We will never have all the facts the jury did. It sounds like a complicated case, and I'm glad I was not on that jury.
She went , got her gun and returned. Pursuit?

Not sure about this particular case, but the NAACP's response is another example of a coddled group applying the law when convenient.
she had a chance to walk away and didn’t on a couple of occasions but kept coming back.
On another note; that was a long article with lots of detail and for what... to draw support for her?

"State Attorney Angela Corey, however, said the jury heard the whole story and the public will, too, at the sentencing. Then, she said, she will be willing to shed more light on a matter she said she has been “very involved with from the beginning.”

Sounds to me like a confused woman, who didn't know when to get out of Dodge (leave the abusive jerk), and complicated matters when she re-entered the home, there-by re-escalating the conflict.
IF she was the one to initially start the altercation, as has been asserted by her husband and his kids, then she is the problem.
