    is where supporters believe she should not be serving 20 years. Not even one, in my opinion.

    Context: Marissa had just given birth, Rico is a serial wife beater. He had her tormented in my opinion.

    Disparity: A woman named Ana Alliegro shot at her ex's head inside his Florida home because he wouldn't remarry her. She was not a victim of domestic abuse. She got probation.

    A good horse is never a bad color.
