The problem with the how much time person a vs person b got memes is they are not comparing apples to apples. First of all, Florida is involved in the second case. The black lady, Marissa Alexander fired a "warning shot" that she said went into the ceiling but was found in the wall behind where her husband was while her son was standing next to him. She was offered a 3 year plea from jump, but decided to roll the dice at trial where what she was charged with had a 20 year minimum sentence. The problem was that where the police found the bullet didn't match her story. The judge/jury couldn't have given her less time if they wanted to so she got 20 years. The system actually worked with her to get that original 3 year plea and she's out of jail. There are a lot of days where I completely understand shooting your husband but you can't lie about ballistics under oath. Amber Guyger wasn't going into a trial with a mandatory 20 year sentence. The minimum was 5 and she got 10.
