Discussion in 'Travis Alexander Trial - The State vs. Jodi Arias' started by SoSueMe, May 21, 2013.
ETA She probably saves spiders because she feels a certain 'kinship' with them.
I believe it's a no-brainer as well (and I'm not a fan of the death penalty) but I'm trying to look at the "bright side of life" for JA in prison. Prison isn't fun, I'm guessing. It's got to be stressful to the nth degree. I'm guessing JSS will not give her the possibility of parole, so she's there for the rest of her life. If she wants to appeal she has to pay for it herself. Yay! And no death-row-inmate rock star status for her, just a fade into gen pop.
That's what I'm telling myself, anyway...
Who the heck is this Marlboro man?
IMO...it's from Stewey on Family Guy...he always says "Cool Hwhip" and it pisses Brian off all the time.
Maybe this is the reason why they start at 10:00 rather than 8:00 so he doesn't have to get up at the crack of dawn to get to the courthouse.
Tried and failed to copy the portion of the instructions relating to "significant impairment."
IMO, significant impairment is the only mitigator the jury might consider of relevance, as it specifically lists mental illness and personality disorders.
CMJA fails the first burden to establish impairment as mitigator-- that the impairment caused her to not understand the wrongfulness of her crime. She obviously did, and the jury as obviously thinks that she knew exactly what she was doing before, during and after the murder.
The second burden is somewhat more subjective. Its possible to interpret it as.. did her personality disorder/mental illness essentially drive her to/cause her to murder Travis? Was her mental illness/personality disorder so serious that it rendered her incapable of making decisions that would have prevented her from murdering Travis?
I can see debating the second condition. If the jury is too, I'd bet that all her clear-eyed planning and cover up, as well as the fact that she had to drive over a 1,000 miles to murder him, will make it difficult or impossible to view her as so mentally ill she can't function or be held responsible for her choices.

HLN can be seen here.
Oooops, sorry, Stewey came to mind with the Cool Hwhip...didn't remember the JM thing.
Well...he did kill his unborn CHILD (Conner)....
From WAT :
2m Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
Just saw another juror walk in. They are coming in slowly. Dennis told me Willmott is in on another case, didn't see her outfit. #JodiArias
Okay, that makes more sense than in relating to Stewie from The Family Guy. It's hard for me to read with those "h's" there, but his tweets are funny and informative. Thanks for the info.
I hope there's no confusion in the jury room about BPD being an illness that might afford Jodi a mitigating factor.
I got a nickel that says we will have a verdict today. They slept on it. I pray it's for the DP but in any case, a verdict today, before their lunch break.
:floorlaugh: I almost responded to Hopeful by her initials the other day and quickly realized that might not be a good idea! So now, I just stick with 'Hopeful'
I'm a bit upset JM didn't address this.
This has probably been discussed eons ago but I just watched the testimony. When Nurmi was walking CMJA through ahem, sex, and she talked about her Baptism day and anal sex. She says, Travis "unzipped his pants"...then she said "or pulled them down."
The Mormon Baptismal uniform is ONE PIECE and it ZIPS ALL THE WAY UP! CMJA lied about this sex act... I HATE HER!
One of the jurors.
Scott Peterson killed two people (his wife and unborn child).
wonder how the jurors are dressed today?
He is a juror
I am so sick of hearing Dr,D say Jodi is sick
NOO-SHE IS NOT SICK SIR
She is a cold blooded murderer
