Discussion in 'Travis Alexander Trial - The State vs. Jodi Arias' started by nursebeeme, Jan 9, 2013.
Yes - 3 or 4 I think - elderly or "of retirement age" which, to me, doesn't mean elderly necessarily. We don't yet know what the final makeup of the jury yet - and neither do they. They draw straws or numbers to determine their status of juror or alternate...
HTH! : )
Harvest, you need to listen to this part of her interrogation with Flores. She explains exactly what happened to her finger -- although she attributes it to the nonexistent female intruder.
She cut her finger with the knife when it slipped from her hand as she was stabbing Travis. As Flores later tells her, it's a very very common injury suffered by stabbing perpetrators.
Something else telling to me (and likely many others on this board)...
She's lacking the appropriate visceral reaction to being confronted/reminded about her abuse. IME it is an unwanted and uncontrollable response too...shaking, rocking, crying inconsolably, feeling nauseous, sudden headache, vomiting, tensing, hesitation in speech, unbridled anger, a feeling of invasion, etc. (I still get like that 6 1/2 years later, 4000 miles away, when I get a letter from my ex. It's the only way he is allowed to contact kiddos.)
She's just too cavalier to be even remotely believable.
No, apparently I only dvrd about 30 minutes.

I am trying to get caught up on all of today's testimony but wanted to jump in and say.
I hate Jodi Arias!!!
I only caught the last 30 minutes and I have to agree I think the injury is tendon related form the cut she received. I can't wait for Juan to bury this chick!
Does anyone have a link to stream HLN tonight? lease:
Realistically, how much longer do we think this direct will go on?
I wonder if someone can refresh my memory, I don't know if this was the FCA trial or a different one but there was one trial where a witness needed a really intense cross examination from the prosecutor and when the prosecutor got up to cross it was the most disappointing cross ever, I believe it was talked about quite a bit here, though I could be wrong.
Anyway, if anyone knows what I'm talking about...I hope that doesn't happen in this case, I hope Juan makes her testify on cross for as long as she is testifying on direct. I know I will be celebrating when I hear the words "No futher questions, your honor" come out of Nurmi's mouth. LOL
oh jeez, look out. I like Dr. Drew, I just like to see him like he is today, open to a person's ability to just lie.. Just that it is possible she is not truthful.
ALso she has to show that the force she used was matching the force that was used or going to be used on her. In other words, she has to show that the amount of force she used against him was justified. Whiiiiiiich...don't see how that is going to happen
I do remember she said she cut her finger, yes the ring finger. I did not hear anything about it being broken. However, I don't recall a close up of it during the interrogation.
Dr drew is a dweeb. He should stick to addiction rehab. IMO

I swear I'm not stalking the chat room. :floorlaugh:
Chat room doesn't like my mac
She didn't say it had been broken, she said it had been cut. It's not believable now that it was actually injured months prior when Travis abused her.
Why would you need a close up in the interrogation? She tells him what happened.
It's all part of her brilliant plan to fool the jury..... they would treat her better if she was more attractive in court. Poor old Andrea Yates didn't get away with anything...
welcome clue77 and all other new members! :cheer:
Did anyone catch her testimony about asking someone for a gun so that she could kill herself? i was dozing off most of her testimony today but i believe i heard something to that fact. i guess shes gonna say she got the gun from this "friend" and not the robbery at her grandparents house. i tell ya she has a story for eveyrthing. what kind of "friend" would give u a gun to kill youself after. what kind of fruend would say "here take my gun" after knowing that you're suicidal? I hope this friend is called for rebuttal.
