Trying to distract myself....Watching some tv and posting here.
I feel like a fool. Why do I assume that most everyone on here is male? The few that I assume are female turn out to be male. :waitasec::dunno:
HLN keeps showing the video of Jodi chatting, smiling, gesticulating wildly, and openly flirting with a bailiff. She has no insight into the reality of this situation. With her perky ponytail today and last night's media blitz, JA really thinks that she is a rock star. I want to uke:
If anyone has any doubt...you can listen to it again here-->
Jodi Arias Deliberations - Part 2 - Possible Hung Jury - YouTube
I heard the proceeding, and the judge said it was her understanding that they could not come to an agreement. I'm not the only one that heard it that way...no IF they could not agree but that they could not agree. Apparently at least some in the media heard it the way I did:
"After two hours of deliberations, the jury in the Jodi Arias trial informed Judge Sherry Stephens Wednesday that they were unable to reach a unanimous verdict on whether Jodi Arias should live or die -- but the convicted murderer could still get the death penalty."
The "what happens if" part is a media question, not what the jury asked.
I see people are still under the impression that this jury can decide the death penalty or life. Nope. They decide the death penalty, or they are hung. That is their only decision to make. If hung, another jury comes in, we go through this whole penalty dog and pony show again (even more so, as the new jury has to hear all the circumstances). Then that jury deliberates. THEN and only THEN if that second jury cannot agree on death does it go to the judge to decide life without parole or life with the possibility of parole.
Anyone remember who juror 18 is?
Here is the actual question:
The jury sent a handwritten note on an official question form to the judge. It said: If the jury is unable to come to a unanimous decision @ this stage, do we notify the judge of this on the form (verdict) or do we just tell the judge her instruction on the bottom P. 10 on the final jury Instruction-Penalty phase?
It was signed by juror No.18.
Yep that's the sitch .. keep not going shopping, have managed the main meals no problem, but as far as food for me when hanging around in the house goes there's nothing!
HLN says that they spoke with Arizona Corrections about Jodi wanting to start programs in the prison. AC stated that that will not happen!
When the judge spoke to the jury did she not say she would give them some suggestions as to how to keep deliberating....or was I dreaming? And if she said that, did she then give them suggestions?
Tomato, I think people are guessing it's him if he signed a written question to the Judge.
FWIW, here is the description of Juror #18 from the "observation" thread, for those who are interested;
18.The Artist-Bald, attractive, glasses, 50's-60's, large build, holds his notebook on a binder as if he's going to sketch. He looks around the gallery a lot. I thought we met eyes a couple of times, but who knows, that room is so huge!
This guy also had a very intense gaze. He took some notes. He rubbed his face and tapped his fingers to his lips a lot. He wasn't the only one doing stuff like that, but I'll get into that in my notes
Oh! Interesting! That makes a big difference, IMO.
And does that mean that Juror 18 - The Artist is the foreman?
