    I think you eliminated half the equation. It's not that the jury doesn't agree on the death penalty, it's that the jury doesn't agree on a penalty, one of which is the death penalty.

    The goal when the death penalty is involved, is to find a jury that agrees on a penalty of life or death -- not one that agrees on death.

    If you see each phase as distinct trial then it is completely consistent with how our system works. When a jury hangs, the person is retried (if the prosecutor chooses) until a unanimous verdict is reached. And so it is in this phase, the prosecutor can have a new penalty "trial" or can take death off the table and let the judge decide between life and LWOP.

    I really like the idea that only a jury can decide to put a person to death. I don't think that decision should be in the hands of judge -- especially one who is elected.

    :praying: Praying these wonderful jurors will show as much mercy to CMja as she showed to Travis on June 4, 2008. :praying:

    P.S. I understand if some jurors have sympathy for CMja's family, but this is not enough to mitigate the extreme cruelty of the crime. And delivering justice for Travis and his family is far more important than sparing the feelings of CMja's family! :moo:

    The DT doesn't need to. The jury is allowed to consider any evidence they have heard in the trial as mitigating, whether the DT listed it or not, discussed it or not.

    If they choose a new jury, how will that jury know all of the testimony and evidence?

    ITA! If Jodi had been acquitted id understand ppl comparing but this jury has convicted her and found extreme cruelty. Comparing the two juries is comparing apples to oranges. I think this jury has/will work very hard to come to a verdict. I still believe there was misunderstanding about the jury being deadlocked. After only deliberating just a few hrs I don't see it. I still have faith that they will come back with DP but no matter what I don't see Jodi ever being free again. Jmo

    Snipped respectfully by me for relevance.

    Ahhh.. let's all take a brief moment and review Jodi's attractive jail interview couture! The sandals, pink socks, and leg irons are a particularly nice set of accessories, don't you think?! The metal adds some bright accents to an otherwise drab and uncoordinated look. What color lip gloss and eye shadow should one wear with horizontal gray stripes, pink socks, brown plastic sandals, and leg irons? Hmmmm........

    Hi everyone!

    I too think today will be the day!! I'm praying for the Alexanders hoping that today will be the day they finally feel justice has been done for Travis.

    this whole time I thought they would give her LWOP, but today I just have this feeling they are going after the DP. It might have taken them time to adjust to the idea that they were going to do it.

    He made reference to it and the Salmon references on Twitter a few weeks back. Maybe he was just kidding?:peace:

    I'll stand corrected.
