1) I do not think that she deserved 20 years. However, she was offered a plea and took the trial option instead with the knowledge that if convicted she would do much more time. She gambled and she lost. I feel for her, but think that she used poor judgment or had some poor legal advice.
2) Part of the reason for her prosecution was child endangerment.
3) Stand your ground does not apply.
She said she escaped and ran to the garage, intending to drive away. But, she said, she forgot her keys, so she picked up her gun and went back into the house..."I believe when he threatened to kill me, that's what he was absolutely going to do," she said. "That's what he intended to do. Had I not discharged my weapon at that point, I would not be here."

Example: If someone breaks into my house and is raping my wife and I call 9-1-1 and the dispatcher says "Do nothing until the police get there" do you think I am just going to hang out and watch the rape?
I realize these are two different situations, but the basic point is that a 9-1-1 operator is not a person of authority. Doing or not doing what they say has no relevance.

I can say that I have no idea if Zimmerman had no motive, or did have a motive to kill Martin, I haven't come to conclusions like you have, and we all know if Martin wasn't black and Zimmerman wasn't white, this discussion wouldn't still be taking place.

You are quick to throw Trayvon under the bus for his morals but never call out zimmerman for his record. Now you may not be black but keep in mind just like Trayvon you are still young and God forbid that some guy looking for trouble tries to follow you around one night while minding your business because you look "suspicious".

And we've gone over this time and time again, you know my response to the 2nd part, and the only thing I'd be questioned as is dressing poorly probably.
I'll add again you never answered my initial question....
