Discussion in 'Travis Alexander Trial - The State vs. Jodi Arias' started by LambChop, Sep 16, 2014.
Please continue here....:judge:
HUh? How is signs of "overkill" favorable evidence for the defense?!
The detectives originally thought there was more than 1 person. Therefore, 2 or more would have been in DTs favor.
The trial was concerned with actual evidence. Actual evidence was not in Arias' favor. At all.
They thought there was more than one person based on conjecture and nothing more. They thought she must have had help because of the damage she did. There is zero evidence of another person. And I don't see how arguing for another person there would have helped. Having an extra person with her would have highlighted the premeditated aspect. Really, with that evidence, Jodi had no choice but self defense if she was going for full innocence.
:seeya: on this new thread..... not following what y'all are talking about? Elle Elle's entire post was not brought forward so confused me... What is being responded to didn't make sense until I went back and saw it said
Her original post was snipped...ok...moving on
Ok , so JA gave up her career as an attorney. THank goodness for that. But I still do not understand how this next phase works.
How do they get the new jury up to speed? Does JA get on the stand again and talk about the murder?
AZLawyer briefly touches on it here:
She actually added that after it was quoted, presumably to clarify. No big.
There are many posts explaining how it will proceed katydid23... but I can't comprehend the explanations until I see it happen.
I don't know that there have been many (any?) trials that I have followed that this has happened with. There is the sidebar thread which a lot of folks are on that perhaps can answer your question..but I've never seen this happen in a case..
Interesting to learn! I'll now know not to put stuff in quotations as a post...as it apparently doesn't get quoted on a reply quote. Didn't know that and good to know for the future.
Thanks - AZ said in above link
Well, if you add something after the post is already quoted it won't get posted in the reply. Happens to me all the time. The second line was an eta .
Elleelle, from the last thread- in answer to your question about Jodi dying her hair. Brown is her natural color that she dyed it back to. The reason she did it then was part of her alibi. Since everyone knew her only as a blonde, she'd be less likely to be recognized as a brunette, and her original story was that she was never in Arizona, which is why she used the gas cans- to not have to fill up in the state of Arizona.
The alleged drawing that was smuggled out of the jailhouse by the mitigation specialist was that of a pin-wheel? Can someone post what a pin-wheel drawing looks like? I'm bemused.
This is the "pinwheel" posted on her Twitter :
Looks like something I had drawn back in 1970s using my Spyro Gyro drawing board.[emoji4]
Have you all seen this article? I'm sorry if it is a repeat, as I haven't had time to catch up on all the posts. It is a very a very lengthy read, and right now I am too tired to finish it. The comments are interesting too ~
ETA ~ the part that interested me was about the mitigation specialist Maria De La Rosa
Thank you all for the comments and tweets yesterday. :seeya: I was able to lurk for a few...

"What is you definition of skull? The whole head? The whole head does not compromise all of brain."
Here is a definition from medical dictionary at medterms:
Skull: The skull is a collection of bones which encase the brain and give form to the head and face. The bones of the skull include the following: the frontal, parietal, occipital, temporal, sphenoid, ethmoid, zygomatic, maxilla, nasal, vomer, palatine, inferior concha, and mandible. http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=5507
And another one from the Cambridge Dictionary:
the bones of the head, which surround the brain and give the head its shape http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/skull
Hope this helps
