Supporters Rally For Marissa Alexander, Bail Hearing Set For Friday

Supporters of Marissa Alexander who were at a Duval County Courthouse on Thursday were disappointed that she was not released from jail.  A bond hearing for Alexander has been set for Friday.

Those who rallied for Alexander said she should have been immediately released from jail because she was wrongfully convicted. Bruce Zimet, Alexander’s attorney, said he had not expected charges against her to be dropped at the Thursday hearing. His only hope is that Alexander will be granted bail at Friday’s hearing.

The Sisterhood of Survivors, a group of domestic viølence victims and survivors, was responsible for the rally for Alexander outside the courtroom, according to The Ledger.

An appeals court ordered a new trial for Alexander after determining that the judge committed an error with jury instructions.

Alexander was convicted in 2010 after firing what she says were warning sh0ts at her husband. She says she went to get her gun after her husband broke down a bathroom door where she went to get away from him. Prosecutors said that the sh0t Alexander fired was in the direction of her husband and children.

Although the court agreed to grant Alexander a new trial, it also agreed that Alexander cannot use a Stand Your Ground defense in the case.

“We reject her contention that the trial court erred in declining to grant her immunity from prosecution under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law,” wrote Judge James H. Daniel, “but we remand for a new trial because the jury instructions on self-defense were erroneous.”

    The law is not decided based on emotions. She is guilty because she had a way out and didn’t take it. She acted not out of fear but anger. Her actions endangered the lives of two children.

    She might be granted bail on Friday, but I doubt it. Her new trial will last a few days and the outcome may still be the same. Don’t get your hopes up.

    Ok we all know y Zimmerman got away with murder, he’s half white and his daddy was an ex judge, now we know that his daddy had some pull there, the guy has always gotten away with ****, sry but if his a*s had a Spanish last name with a father that works cleaning the bathroom trust his a*s will be in prison right now, so yes it is a race thing, sad but true.

    That idiot Win Gray! They always (you know who THEY are): go directly to this law book and uses special glasses to read the small print when it pertains to darker skinned people. I can’t even imagine that bull c**p happening to Paris Hilton or any white famous person if they would have done the exact same thing as Marissa. They would have gotten a warning from the police (not judge) and let go. I can’t see how these people sleep at night, and sit up in church on Sunday with their bible. Who are these people trying to fool?
    Now they want to use people’s tax dollar for another d**n trial…so the judge and others can generate more money. This woman should be released without the side show. These d**n United Snakes of America.

    This is the most egregious case of injustice I have seen in a long time. I will not go to Florida unless it is to support Marissa Alexander. She is a brave courageous Black woman. She has put up with so much! We all need to support her and let Angela
    Corey-the prosecutor-know what we think! Let’s stand our ground & stand ground for Marissa! Her young children are being raised without their mother – USA/a third world country to allow this.

    So what are you saying??? She gets a new trial, and no bail? This is a double standard. Why are they remanding her, yet granting her a new trial. That is junk! If she were white, bail would’ve been set! The state of Florida is sadly sad! Awful, just awful :(
