    It's stupid. She has finally realized that going to the media and beaming for the camera all the time actually makes her look really bad. So now she's playing it up and hiding her face. She also does not like to be on camera without makeup AT ALL. But when she peeked to see if the camera was still there one could see she was smiling. And she would liken it to rape. She thinks being a sexual victim makes her the ultimate victim.

    Jury says the hold out watched the news and it was worth the risk to get an alternate to replace her #jodiarias #3tvarias

    Troy Hayden was talking to her before she even left the courthouse. He would have continued talking to her but she saw the cameras and shielded her face...
    He obviously got permission to go behind the scenes.

    You're talking about the same person who likened the fact that Travis talked to other women and wouldn't marry her to "ABUSE".

    She's D E L U S I O N A L !

    Jodi did not waive the right to make a presentence statement to JSS--she just waived the right to have a presentence report done, which would be based on (1) an interview of JA plus (2) everything else about JA that the person preparing the report could drag up. Basically it's a mitigation/aggravation report. I had assumed they already waived that, because what's the point when you're going to be presenting months of evidence (presumably the same evidence) at a penalty phase trial? But since JA was not "allowed" :rolleyes: to say everything she wanted to in front of the jury, perhaps she wants to say it all to JSS at the sentencing hearing.

    Not really. I have been more and more disappointed in juries myself lately, and not just when I lose. ;)

    I thought she would get death, but to be honest I thought it was because the jury would improperly, in violation of the instructions, consider certain things as aggravating circumstances, including, e.g., fake messages to Travis after the murder, the letter to the family, the lies about ninjas, the pedo lie, the porn lie, the DV lie, the lack of remorse, etc. (Before you all ask about the remorse part--the jury was allowed to consider lack of remorse in deciding that remorse was not a mitigator, but was not allowed to consider lack of remorse as an aggravating circumstance.)

    Unless she thinks it's "revenge" in this case but appropriate in other cases. I wish she'd speak to the press and try to explain herself.

    Now that is interesting and if true, would love to know who she tweeted to in particular.

    The defense wouldn't have wanted to necessarily weed this juror out as they probably believed she might identify with or hopefully see abusive behavior and have some sympathy. And it appears, based on the other jurors' comments, that was something that did happen.

    DId someone say she tweeted something about gang banged or something? I had to take a breather. I am now exhausted emotionally.

    I don't think I'll ever be the same since Caylee. I made a promise (to myself and to her) that I would release her red balloon when she received the justice she was so deserving of. Now, I believe we'll be forever linked by that red balloon. This hurts...and I just don't know if I have it in me to do this again. I will be here at sentencing. Till the end, Travis...till the end.

    I think race played no part in her identifying with Jodi and I'm starting to get a little offended at all the mentions of them being Chicas and Latina buddies. I'm half Mexican and I do not identify with Jodi.

    You know, I realize that I have had ADD on this case for the last few days. I have flip flopped about what I would do over and over if I was on the jury but today listening to the jury, it was so clear to me that of course I can flip and flop because I am not living it every day. I go about my normal life, I don't have to sit in court and listen to the testimony, see the players and the families. It makes it easy to just step back and say what you would do.

    But when I heard this amazing group of people today I felt their decision and it was clear. And of course they were right. DP was the right choice. They were the ones there daily and gave up so much to make sure they did the right thing. I hope I didn't annoy to much. Some days my posts were like a stream of consciousness with people I felt comfortable to bounce those thoughts off of. I have really enjoyed hanging with you guys and getting really awesome thoughts and feedback and commentary.
    You guys are amazing thinkers.

    Well I hate to say it but it is always possible that Juror #17 had no real DV either, just like Jodi, which would explain things a lot more...We know its possible for there to be screwed up People even on juries. You know we dont all play with the same deck of cards all the time.

    It's not illegal for a juror to use social media while on a trial, but it is against the rules to read anything about the case or anyone involved in the case or post anything about the case. So if she, for instance, was tweeting about a sports team, then that wouldn't cause a problem unless the judge specifically told all jurors they were absolutely not to use any social media account whatsoever or for any reason, and if she did that in defiance of the rules then yes, a problem.

    But in the end, no recourse for the state. The hung jury stands.

    You noticed it as well! I thought it must have been my imagination but I guess not.

    .@RealSheriffJoe denying all interview requests for #JodiArias. And DOC doesn't allow them. No further camera time for Jodi.
