    The simple truth is that Marissa Alexander’s claimed “warning shot” was, in truth, nothing more than a missed head shot. In the presence of two minor children, no less. See: The Myth of Marissa Alexander’s “Warning Shot”–

    • I am not familiar with all the details of the case so what you say andrewbranca may or may not be true. I wonder, however, is she was aiming for her his head, why wasn’t there a second or multiple shots? It seems if she really wanted to kill him she wouldn’t have stopped after one shot. I can guarantee you whatever action he was taking (which probably caused her to take the shot in the first place) ceased immediately.
