    20 years for not even killing anyone. Ouch. Real murderers and rapists get much lighter sentences.

    Just heard about this and I am outraged! Why are we not making a bigger deal about this?! I just read that the national success rate for SYG defense is something like 30+% for white on black homicides but only 3% for black on white homicides. Now shes been convicted and sentenced to prison for 20 years, her kids have been taken away. . . .

    Havent we been trying to keep the whole racial profiling argument out of the SYG debate? Where is the kind of support we saw for Zimmerman? Wtf!?! This lady had a permit and a restraining order against the guy and didnt kill him.

    Zimmerman's fistfight and now Michael Dunn's "shotgun" count as more of a bodily threat than whatever she had to prove to get a restraining order!?
