Cyntoia Brown was sold as a sex slave and eventually killed her captor. For that, she was sentenced to 60 years in prison. Since then the law has changed, but Cyntoia will have to serve the old sentence.

In the meantime, TN Gov. Haslam recently granted clemency to a woman who killed her father who had abused both her and her mother. He is term limited and will be leaving office in January. Haslam has not dismissed the possibility of a lame duck pardon/clemency from him.

She was 16 when she committed this murder, an act of self defense which even a Mexican like Zimmerman can invoke, but not a black minor. Does SCOTUS's ruling against life sentences for minors have some application here?

She's black, the Tennessee SC is racist and I will never spend a dime in that hate filled state but I will find and join and contribute to whichever organization is working to free her. I would be ashamed to be from Tennessee today. She did the world a service by killing that piece of crap. She should have gotten a reward not a sentence.
