- Reaction score
I was involved in DV movement starting 1978 and trust me it was radical and militant until about 1987..Been to the conferences..stayed below the radar when the real key note speaker screamed " and u heterosexual women, you are no better U sleep with the enemy"....quietly sulked away and went crabbing in Md...True story
She's a first for me in her category, and I remember Charles Manson's trial. Yep, saw it every night on the news.
Well, no, just that you and I are equally heathen.
I really do wonder about ALV at times and if she's done any introspection since her testimony. I know, probably not, but, unlike Samuels who was obviously a hired gun, I did think she sincerely believed Jodi was abused and wasn't privy to a lot of the info we knew.
We've got a few days until next hearing .. I've been thinking about strategies the DT could have used that wouldn't have involved trashing Travis, would have fit the facts including JA's multiple stories, and may have worked better .. Purely hypothetical of course but any ideas?
I really do agree with you, Softy. I think that many people, myself among them, are fascinated by how someone's thinking processes can seem to be so different from their own; hence the fascination with any possible clue that might lead to some kind of satisfactory explanation. I think it is part of the basic hardwiring we possess as predators in terms of pattern recognition -- we are programmed to focus on things that seem out of place.
I borrowed BritsKate's decoder ring for this post. :cow:
:lol: At least you admit it!
I can admit that I am fascinated by her, I have never in my life (I know it is way shorter than yours ) seen anything like her. I thought Drew Peterson was a nut. :nuts: I followed his case very closely and still do, But he really has nothing on her... she is in a league of her own.
My guess is she will get with the program. She's sulking right now from the sting of the verdict but JW and KN are going to go to work on her with the carrot of 25 years with parole. She'll buy it because, recent verdict aside, she buys her ability to sell herself.
All right, lil' buddy. Define "radical feminist" so that I may properly collate your argument.
And she gave me the creeps to boot.
I think she figured out pretty quickly that she got snookered by Arias. Instead of retreating and conceding, she stubbornly dug in her heels because after 30 years as a DV "expert" she was not going to be shown up ... uh-huh. Not in front of her cheerleading squad she brought with her, not in front of television cameras and certainly not in front of that rude, uppity meanie male prosecutor.
She would have died first.
That would have been hopeless with the premeditation. Besides, JA would never go along with that.
She almost went postal when De Marte said she was 'immature.'
No way ... I cannot even imagine that!
You need some Red Rider:
