Merissa Alexander has received a 20 year prison sentence, after her “Stand Your Ground” defense failed. The 31 year old, Master’s Degree holder, and mother of three, has never been in trouble with the law (prior to this incident). After a 2010 incident, in which her husband choked her, she took out a protective order. However, when her habitually abusive husband threatened that, if he can’t have her, no man can have her, a fight broke out. Merissa was confronted by her husband, by the bathroom, when he discovered that she sent pictures of their newborn to her former husband. She was assaulted, shoved, strangled and held against her will. He would not allow her to leave. Merissa ran through her kitchen to the garage, where she discovered that she was without keys, a cellphone and could not exit because of a malfunctioning, garage door. When her husband found Merissa trying to leave out of the malfunctioning garage door, he yelled “Bitch I will Kill You” and charged toward her. Earlier in the fight, he told Merissa that if he can’t have her, no-one could.  Alexander says that  she was in fear of her life. She fired a warning shot into the air, for which she was arrested.

In a deposition, Rico Gray, Alexander’s husband acknowledged his past abuse of his spouses: “I  got five baby mamas and I put my hand on every last one of them except one…the way I was with women, they was like they had to walk on eggshells around me. You know, they never knew what I was thinking… or what I might do… hit them, push them.”

He also added that “The gun was never pointed at me,” Gray said. “She just didn’t want me to put my hands on her anymore, so she did what she feel like she have to do to make sure she wouldn’t get hurt.”

He has recanted various parts of his story on several occasions. He now paints Merissa as the aggressor. Alexander’s husband acknowledged abusing Merissa on five occasions. In once such incident, his battery of her, sent Merissa to the hospital. Although he initially stated that Alexander never pointed the gun at him he now claims that Merissa pointed the gun at him, while his child was at his side. He now says that he was in fear of his life. Merissa sighted the Stand Your Ground Law, utilized by George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case. Trayvon Martin, was walking home, in the rain, wearing a hoodie while eating skittles and drinking iced tea. Zimmerman, was a self appointed Neighborhood Watchmen. He followed Martin, chased him and confronted the boy. A struggle ensued and Zimmerman shot Martin in the chest. Zimmerman was subsequently released, with no charges, until protests and public pressure inspired a reconsideration of charges.


Congresswoman Corrine Brown has become engaged in the case. She says that if Stand Your Ground, ever had a purpose, it would have been in cases like, Merissa’s. She says that she can find, no incident in Florida, in which the Stand Your Ground Law has been successfully used by an African American.



William Balfour, the former brother in law of Julia Hudson, the Sister of singer and super-star, Jennifer Hudson, was found guilty of murdering the mother, brother and 7 year old nephew of the singer. Balfour, was accused of flying into a jealous rage, when he discovered that his estranged wife was dating another man. The convicted murder, discovered balloons, sent to Julia from another man. As a result, he shot Jennifer’s 57 year old, mother in her living room. He then proceeded to kill her 29 year old brother, as he lay in his bed. He kidnapped Hudson’s 7 year old nephew and shot him in the head, after placing him behind the front seat of a SUV, owned by Jennifer Hudson. Balfour allegedly, told his wife: “If you leave me, I willkill you. I will kill your family first. You will be the last to die.”

Hudson, was in the court room to hear the verdict.


UNBELIEVABLE: Trayvon Martin Gun Targets Go On Sale and Sell Out!


A supporter of George Zimmerman, has placed ads for the sale of Gun Range Targets that resemble the slain teenager. The Gun Range Targets have a blank face, but a figure wearing a hoodie, has skittles tucked into the pocket and iced tea in hand, making the identity of the targets namesake obvious. They also have a cross hair target directly on the chest of the target. It is a clear and unmistakable reference to the fact that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, in the chest. The ad for the targets are marketed toward Zimmerman’s supporters. It says, that the targets are ideal for those that “support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug”.

To his credit, Mark O’Mara, George Zimmerman’s attorney called the sale of the targets, “hate-mongering”. He further stated that “This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility”. The seller of the targets, reportedly sold out of his entire inventory, within two days!
