Until now, Woodmore had been a symbol of everything that is wrong with the fusion of politics and parole policy. She long ago expressed deep remorse for the crime and had demonstrated her rehabilitation and preparation to return to society. The parole board had previously recommended her release for five straight years - and each time was overruled by a governor, first Gray Davis and then Schwarzenegger.
Among the advocates for her release was the judge who sentenced her, Robert W. Armstrong, who found it "so cruel" that the gubernatorial vetoes caused Woodmore, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, to serve more time than if she had been convicted by a jury of first-degree murder during that era. He also said it was clear that she had been suffering from "intimate partner abuse and its effects" when she shot Morrow.
Now I ain't tripping, I ain't twisted
I ain't demented, well, just a lil' bit
I'm kicking ***, I'm taking names
I'm on flame, don't come home, babe
I'm breaking dishes up in here, all night
I ain't gon' stop until I see police lights
I'ma fight a man tonight, I'ma fight a man tonight
I'ma fight a man, a man, a m-a-n
A man, a man, a m-a-n
