Quote An argument ensued, and Alexander said she feared for her life when she went out to her vehicle to get the gun she legally owned. She came back inside and ended up firing a shot into the wall, which ricocheted into the ceiling

Ermm

I ain't sayin she deserves 20 years in prison. A month of county jail, served on weekends, would have sufficed.

^^We had a long thread about her earlier and there were doubts about whether she really was in danger of her life.  She could have left out the garage possibly instead of grabbing a gun, coming back inside, then shooting. 

I don't remember all what was said, but there were some questions as to her motives and actions.

Oh I missed that but even if so and she was being extra for no damn reason 20 years is still extremely excessive.   Laws should be applied appropriately and evenly and that should be the focus.   We shouldn't see these extreme sentences for being extra crazy while black. 

And I have to wonder if these children's father understood he would be sending the mother of his children to jail for 20 years.  No matter how mad he is with her he helped stigmatize those kids and make them the children of a convict.   He didn't have to testify to anything.

I could be wrong, but I don't think the kids were hers. Also when she fired the shot she damn near shot the kid. The child testified against her too.
I read the story behind the case and there's an awful lot of details that's side eye worthy. 
I think there was an order for her to stay away from him from a previous domestic dispute that she was charged with. 
Despite the order her batsh!t crazy ass rolled by the house anyway, which led to the shooting.
 I guess we will see how this all turn up.
