    If they're saying they can't come to a decision this soon, I would assume there are pretty strong opinions both ways.

    I hope they go back and talk about it. I just don't want them to settle for life.

    Less than 3 hours deliberating is not enough time for anything. Geez Louise.

    Yes. They haven't even deliberated for half a day!

    I was under the impression that they couldn't reach a decision, not ask waht would happen if they could't.

    One of the TH said last night that all the jurors looked away when they were dismissed to deliberate but one juror looked at Jodi. They probably have one holdout.

    What a mess!!!!!!!

    If worse come to worse, will there be a plea deal - LWOP?

    How are they going to find an untainted jury if there is a mis-trial???
    Everyone on the planet has heard of this case.

    When will we find out what the split is?

    This is unfortunate; it felt like this jury was unified. But to come back this soon with an impasse means the opinions are so strong they foresee no way to resolve.

    I don't care personally what happens to her, but I want this to be over for the family.

    I'm beyond gobsmacked by AZ's process to empanel a new jury if there is a deadlock. It ought to just go to the judge for a decision.

    Big sigh. This isn't good.

    No matter how strongly I felt about giving her the DP...

    I would rather vote LWOP than allow another jury to finish the job I took an oath to do and devoted 5 months of my life to!!!!

    I just would. If we can't agree, then fine. Give her LWOP. SIMPLE!

    Lock the door and throw away the key. Be done with it. But most importantly...

    FINISH THE JOB!!!

    That's why she did so many of the interviews for that exact reason. She's crazy like a fox that Jodi Arias.

    Does anyone know if the alternate jurors can come into the deliberations if an agreement can't be made?

    Yep, she is looking like all is fine & dandy -- the judge may as well have given a weather report -- JA's reaction would not have been any different.:stormingmad:

    No one of us predicted this when we heard about the jury coming out of the jury room.

    She chatting up the deputy/officer again. Just pickin' & grinnin'

    Damn. Well at least she's been convicted of 1st Degree Murder.

    I say they're sympathetic to her obvious lack of contact with reality.

    I needed that little bit of optimism, thanks! :seeya:

    Can someone please explain how the alternates can come into play in regards to this deadlock? It seems that putting in the alternates would make a lot more sense than bringing in new jurors who have likely been exposed to the media. Is there anyone who can clarify how this works?

    IMO, even if they give her death it'll never get through appeals. Arias will get life. That doesn't seem so bad to me. Lock her up. No more interviews. No more seeing her face. That's the end of that.
