'Stand Your Ground' Immunity Hearing Denied For Wife Who Shot Husband

    It is totally ridiculous that this woman is held to the standards that men are not.
    I do not normally rant about women and the discrimination that occurs every day in many situations. But this is enough. Of course she feared for her life! How could she actually prove that beyond a "reasonable doubt"? Did Mark Zimmerman prove that beyond a "reasonable doubt"? I think not. Different juries, different level of education and different backgrounds. Its a shame and I pray for her and her children that she is exonerated.
