    I agree with all who say once the jurors see everything we have been able to see how pizzed they feel.
    We should never have to feel foolish because our laws can keep info from us...how is that a fair way to make an educated life or death verdict?
    I just don't get it at all.
    They are trusted to make that choice but not trusted to judge inflammatory evidence?Please.....it's not fair to juries....

    For the sake of the Alexander family, I don't want to hear from her until we see her again at the re-trial of the penalty phase. Love that she will be in close custody, 23 hours a day alone in her cell. The Sheriff says her interviewing days are OVER.

    I'm disappointed! Every single one of those jurors said they could impose the death penalty. Here is the only thing they had to look at:

    Aggravating Factors are any relevant circumstances, supported by the evidence presented during the trial, that makes the harshest penalty appropriate, in the judgment of the jurors.

    Mitigating Factors are any evidence presented regarding the defendant's character or the circumstances of the crime, which would cause a juror to vote for a lesser sentence.

    Somebody lied! What mitigating factors were there? Character? Circumstance of the crime?

    May 2013 will go down as a good month for Justice in my book.

    Travis Alexander's killer was found GUILTY of 1st degree murder.

    SHANIYA Davis' killer was found GUILTY TODAY of 1st degree murder.


    No, Travis' killer didn't get the death penalty... yet.
    And Shaniya Davis' killer was not convicted of raping her.
    But I'm going to focus on the Murder 1 convictions in both cases.

    We got Murder 1 CONVICTIONS on 2 cases that dragged on for years! :woohoo:

    I agree with you. I'm wondering if the sealed question today wasn't related to the same thing and, if so, why the dissenting juror (I'm thinking there was only one) wasn't replaced with an alternate - IF they were refusing to deliberate.

    Seems as if the majority of jurors were asking for help from the beginning to me. I will be very anxious to hear more details of what really happened.

    I keep reading about some people wanting JM to bring in the new interviews?
    Would he be allowed to do that?


    (I'm hoping someone knows or can point me in the right direction. I try to use AzLawyer as a last resort, lol. She's so patient and answers all those questions. Is my e-crush showing? lol)

    I was thinking the same thing. IF and I mean IF .. (doubtful) I was one of the jurors that just couldn't do "it" I would be furious with myself and the whole darn fact that she fooled me.

    Now, with the next phase would the can they use all those interviews in the trial?

    The prisons are filling up with girl gang members. They could be a vicious as jodi. She would have to watch her back all the time. They would be offended by her trying to turn the prison into her playpen. With that said, prison officials have said if she gets life she will be in maximum security. She would be in a cell by herself. No contact with other inmates. No book clubs. Only the cracks in the wall to talk to.

    I had to leave for a few minutes, so I've missed several pages, but my 2 cents worth:

    Jodi did not look smug or happy to me when the verdict was read. She knows that some (hopefully the majority) of the jurors were pro death and refused to settle for Life, even if it meant a hung jury. She may also be aware that her post verdict interviews will be allowed to be admitted if the penalty phase is retried. I'm sure her attorneys told her that, but I think she was convinced that this jury was going to give her Life and she didn't give a second thought about doing them. I've seen lawyers on three different networks say that her interviews will be allowed in. I think she knows she's scr3wd if the state retries the penalty phase. What upset me the most today is that it isn't over yet for the Alexander family, but eventually, Jodi will be where she belongs. It also makes me happy that she's locked down for 23 hours per day with no interviews (per Sheriff Joe), at least until the status hearing on June 20th. Justice is delayed, but won't be denied.

    I agree with you, I've never heard of anything like this. I also agree that the family is the worst part of this outcome. I am past my blood lust now that she has been convicted of first degree and I could be just as happy with LWOP. I want them to be able to have closure and their lives back.

    I would so love to know why this didn't come in. I think it's big.

    OMG! I couldn't believe that jerk! "Jodi, you're a vixen...naked pictures...sex kitten...what do you say?"

    No denial, rather, veiled delight and acknowledgement! "Well we were in a relationship..." (translation: "yes, I am off-the-charts-sexy, aren't I?")

    Did he want to boff her or what? (IMHO). How pervy...

    This is exactly what sooooo painful to me as a juror, that 30 minute conversation with prosecutors after the fact.

    The state of Texas basically decided to proceed with vital witnesses omitted because a death occurred in the lead detective family so we didn't get full picture and no explanation til it was over.

    I bawled my whole drive home ...I so believed that kid, but nothing else buttressed her statements.

    Being on a jury stinks...I did my civic duty ... ibased my decision only on what was presented..but I live with regret..feeling I failed that kid.

    I wrote her a letter sent through her attorney to apologize & explain we believed her but he other people who spoke made it very confusing

    Has there been any reports of any juror willing to do an interview?

    I believe I heard this in an interview. It is not surprising, given the level of obsession.

    Also, I don't know if this has been addressed. What about the judges pause? Was she getting emotional, or was there a distraction in the court room?

    I shouldn't have used the lol button, but my stomach has been acting up enough lately for the hurl button. I just seen a clip of this guy (don't know what the 'reporter in the know' looks like) and it was disgusting. The only reporter that interviewed Arias that showed her the respect she deserved--and he should have been rougher, was Ryan Owens.


    Wonder if Arias was bawling too cause the Jury is going to find out now about all the lies she told, the lie she is!...everyone is finding out the real Jodi. To a BPD-Sociopath-Narcissist that has conned people all her life since a young age, manipulated everyone and would not take no for an answer, just lied/manipulated/mirrored her way through...wow, can you imagine? The mask is getting peeled off like a skins of an onion and it is black, molding rotten to the core.
