    Isn't it funny how Nurmi-we'll-be-scrutinized-for-years was eager as hell to talk to the media after his little "victory"? He's the type of defense lawyer that gives the whole profession a bad name. So you "won", how about acting like a decent human being and leaving the chest-pounding for your dumb ass website homepage?

    The judge doesn't need any more information. But perhaps Jodi wants to make a statement and is hoping the media loses interest before April 13.

    Yes, she will stay at Estrella until sentencing.

    Thank you. I kinda thought they probably knew, and I just hurt for what the Alexanders went through, knowing it wasn't looking positive.

    (And the bitter part of me hates the idea that Jodi knew her "chances of 'winning'" were still there. Ugh.

    And lastly, I feel deep disappointment for Juan and Det. Flores...they gave it their all, but it wasn't meant to be, due to one juror.

    Thanks again for all your responses and time during this process :)

    so they should have asked for some sort of ID and way to find what they wanted. Clearly they did not have everything they wanted or needed...they probably should have been more forceful about this juror and all the outside stuff she brought to the deliberations....if JSS did not respond...she must have a higher authority they could have asked for. I feel for these jurors...victims of a very badly run trial.

    I've read several accounts of how the DP doesn't bring closure or peace, or any of the things that someone might believe that verdict will provide.

    I don't want to bash #17, but she does seem as if she was a stealth juror.

    Regardless of this "verdict" the conviction will never get overturned.

    I hope the family can take comfort in the fact that these jurors didn't buy the murderess's Bullchit--I'm not even sure #17 did either. Also, travis's reputation has been completely restored as Juan was so effective knocking down every one of the DTs lies.

    The murderess will likely not get any appeals, and without the distinction of being on death row, she will fade into irrelevance. That is sure to pizz her off big time, especially when she realizes Wilma and MDLR are not her BFFs and will have nothing to do with her.

    I also hope the Alexander's do sue so that the murderess is denied selling her art work or whatever ridiculous things she might come up with to keep herself relevent and make money, ie, the glasses on eBay.

    Anyone care how Jodi feels? I don't but I did find it interesting what she has tweeted since the verdict.

    Any Starbucks, not even Strawberry Frappe will be Starbucks Jodi can't have. That and Cinnabons. Enjoy knowing she's given up those pleasures forever.

    She lied - pure and simple. You know good and well they had to disclose if they had watched that movie or not....she had an agenda and played the system and got the outcome she wanted :(

    All I can say is that the Alexander's are far better people than what I think I would be in their same situation. People would have been punched, screamed at and etc etc...so yea they are strong. Noone should have to go through what they have or what Travis had to..well except Jodi but I will let their religion and faith pull them through. Sometimes things are not about us anymore.

    what exactly do you think Jodi meant when she said she was sorry for the verdict?

    While I am not happy with this non-verdict, I do take some comfort that Travis' murderer will not get a boat load of state funded appeals. She will struggle to raise money for representation and future appeals if the first appeal is denied, which I'm 99% sure it will be. She has like, what, 6 or 7 supporters?

    I'm more upset with Nurmi claiming "victory". No victory here for him. I think CMJA looked upset after the verdict because she realizes her future and and the insignificance she is headed for. Nurmi will write a book like Juan Baez - he's in it for himself. It won't sell well - like Juan Baez. Then he can reaiize insignificance too.

    JM did a great job proven by 11 jurors who confirmed it. I think JS has made an appeal of this case next to impossible and in that I think she did well. I didn't like the way she ran the courtroom sometimes but I'm not ready to judge the judge until all transcripts are released.

    Love and prayers for the Alexanders. They showed tremendous class and integrity in the face of more adversity and trauma than most of us would encounter in a lifetime. So proud of them for keeping the face and spirit of Travis in the courtroom!

    Not much to say but bad words & I'm not allowed. At least she will fade away.

    RIP Travis & prayers for the Alexander family & friends.

    IT was Jodi's last manipulation and power over the Alexanders. She heard their cries and pain, she could have CHOSEN to put an end to it all today, and let them have this part of it behind them...but the B**** decided to drag it out for another 5 to 6 weeks...just because she could and has the right. Is anyone really surprised? She's E*V*I*L

    Ive had time to get less mad. LOL

    My observations

    -The Lone Wolf Juror was what we were afraid of. Based on what we know so far, it sounds to me like she had no business being on the jury. If she thinks the DP is "revenge" instead of a just punishment for a terrible murder, then she should have said that in the beginning so that she could have been excluded.

    And if its true she had "liked" a Jodi facebook page, then she favored Jodi going into this.
    Not sure if what I read is true or not.

    And if she was unwilling to even deliberate at all, then she also should have been excused from the jury pool. Because that is part of the process and jury instructions. You must be willing to listen and debate with your juror peers. Doesnt mean she has to change her mind but she HAS to deliberate with them.

    The bottom line is I think more must be done during jury pool questions. They need a professional to interview each juror to make sure the jury pool is ok with a DP verdict if it is warranted. And to be sure a juror member knows what lies ahead.

    This person had no business being on this jury. She was unwilling to listen to jury instructions that demand you participate.

    They did--they asked for a list of exhibits early on and they got one.

    Not a chance after all this time anyone loses interest until the final chapter closes!

    And what was the prime opportunity the holdout had "to see" that JA was not a monster? During the 2-days JSS wrongly allowed JA to speak to the jury in secret.
