Oh......Skidmarks on her Heart.....

This woman is plain evil. Full stop. I just can't believe there are people defending her!
02:16 PM on 02/07/2013
Everyone is entitled to a defense. Even if her lawyers beleive she is evil.... they beleive in the process enough to defend her
02:49 PM on 02/07/2013
I have no problem with attorneys defending her in court; it's everyone's right to a defense. I have a problem with those who defend her out of court simply because she's a woman who claims to have been abused, even though there is no evidence of that, by a man. Some people think it's okay for a woman to kill a man, lie about the killing for years, and then be set free simply because she claims to have been abused by her victim. It's is an opinion and a defense of domestic violence that is dangerous for society as well as victims of domestic violence of both sexes.

Talk about Fatal Attraction. This broad was never going to have Travis so she made sure noone else could either. I don't know how she could claim an abusive relationship as she had to travel miles to hook up with him. I think Travis was one of those love em and leave em type guys that had no idea what kind of psychopath he was involved with. Sad for both of them as there are enough people in the world that they surely could have moved on without this tragedy having to happen.

I totally agree with you. What amazes me is how I have heard MEN on tv saying how sorry they feel for her that Travis used and abused her so badly...stating that they have daughters and would hate to think some guy would treat them like that! WHAT??? Teach your daughters to think more highly of themselves; if some guy makes you feel used, leave him alone! She enjoyed all of it except the part where he wouldn't make her his EXCLUSIVE girlfriend! That was his demise!

To me, anybody who does so much to change their appearance at trial is putting their own dishonesty on display for the jury to see. I first noticed this during the Menendez Brothers trial. They insult the jury's intelligence.

It's not about trying to look a certain way to impress the jury so much as it is about their attorneys strongly suggesting that their clients look presentable in front of the court/ judge. As for the glasses, people have to switch back and forth from contacts to glasses depending on what they're seeing.

It's sad that so many people nitpick everything going on in this trial. It's an Fing death penalty case, people. Defenders have a right to a fair trial no matter what crimes they've comitted or how many people they've killed or how they did it. That's their constitutional right.

I DO believe this is still the USA.

I absolutely loathe defense tactic like this. That tactic being trashing a dead victim. I don't care if he gave her dirty socks for Valentines's Day. That has nothing to do with the way she shot and stabbed him while he was helpless in the shower.

I am with you on that. I hate hearing a victim of murder getting bashed. The worst are women who kill their husbands and then claim.....physical abuse and that he molested her young children......but yet never ever did anything about it.... No one can defend the man and while very few will believe it....some will. And the woman ends up with a much lighter sentence.

The only thing Arias is a victim of is her own obsession, her own jealousy, and her own thought disorders. She killed Travis because she thought he was going on a romantic vacation to Cancun with a friend of his, Marie Hall. In reality, the two were just friends, and she had no romantic interest in him.

Because of her jealousy, Arias killed Travis for a reason she herself had created in her own mind. She was not aware of the platonic nature of this trip until she was told this in one of her police interviews.

Yes, Marie Hall testified that he never abused her, he was a nice guy, and never pushed himself on her. If you have any statements Hall made to the contrary, post them.

#1. -- I was no where near my dear friend Travis' apartment, and I never had a gun.

#2, -- I was in my boyfriend's apartment when two men came in and killed poor Travis.

#3. -- I witnessed a man and a woman kill my dear friend -- then the man let me go .

#4. -- I was brutally attacked by Travis the freak, so I defended myself.

I just saw the re-run of her fist day of testimony....she said she was going to commit suicide and that is why she said no jury would convict her...really??? The tapes say differently...they have her saying no jury would convict her because she was innocent and if she said suicide they would have searched her and kept her under surveillance...same tone of voice she used in the "lying film" they have of her...she is just so into Jodi and no one else matters...I can hardly wait for the prosecutor to get her...and watch her cry and shake with false emotions.

Agree -- a very feeble and transparent attempt by her to "rationalize" what she said. It would have been much more effective if she claimed she said it at the time because she actualy was "defending herself" and knew she was justified. Martinez will have a good time on cross examination.

I've been watching this trial from the beginning.

Though I'm not making excuses for Arias, Travis Alexander was no virginal Mormon angel.

Any so called very religious man who texts pictures of his erect penis has some issues.

No matter what Alexander's family believes and from the look of their faces they don't believe he sought sex with Arias, I really think he very much wanted to have sex and was conflicted by the Mormon "chastity code" that demands he couldn't until he was married.

He used Arias for his "kind" of sex and led her to believe that they had a future together especially since he baptized Arias into the Mormon religion.

And what is with Alexander sending Arias a shirt and shorts that said Travis' implying "property" along with the BOYS Spiderman underwear for her to wear??

I'm wondering if the contents of the letter inclosed in the package will ever be read in court.

You raise valid points. But can we be sure that Travis took and sent those pics?, was it his idea to have the" property" garments made?-- did he even know. Can we trust any letters that Jodi says he wrote? She has more explaining to do than him. The bottom line is -- battered woman or no battered woman -- if the defense can't prove he attacked her first and she needed to fight back, their entire case is irrelevant.

if she received the image via text message or email then the sender's details would be attached to the image. I don't think we can deny the veracity of whose penis it is.
12:46 AM on 02/08/2013
the defense cannot prove Travis attacked her first, nor can the prosecution prove he didnt attack first...none of them were there. The crime scene was 4 days old before Travis was found and who knows how much it had been contaminated by the friends who found the body before police got there, and how much more it was contaminated before CSI got on the scene, so I dont think the forensics are going to be much of a help at all, and the jury has already asked questions indicating they are suspect of the entire police investigation of the case from the git go. I think it is pretty much going to come down to exactly how much of Jodi's story the jury believes and/or disbelieves. They will be told during jury instructions by the judge, they can believe all, part or none of any given witness' testimony.
05:11 PM on 02/07/2013
I haven't seen where anyone is claiming Travis to be a "Mormonal angel". You are making some really big assumptions thinking by the "look of their faces they don't believe he sought sex with Arias" (speaking about his family members in the courtroom). I must ask you how do you read that from their faces? If you can do that, could you tell the rest of us what do you read from the looks of her mom/aunt/sister/brother sitting there? What are they thinking? You also are believing the words of a woman who lied about this entire murder from the beginning. EVERYTHING she said, EVERY SINGLE STORY, was nothing but lies! Now, you believe her? Why?
01:13 PM on 02/07/2013
This trial turns my stomach. This has become the new trial theatrics. It started with the OJ Simpson trial. "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit" statement by the defense got Simpson off. The Casey Anthony trial . . . the jury found her not guilty because the defense attorney created evidence just like this defense attorney is doing. ALL ARIAS HAD TO DO WAS PUT HER CLOTHES ON AND WALK OUT THAT FRONT DOOR. This is nothing more than a soap opera. Look at everyone who's making money off of it. This has nothing to do about justice.

Ironically you are correct. It has nothing to do with justice. People pay good money to get a better skilled attorney so they can get off from the charges.
Since Nurmi was appointed by the court, I am not sure how good he is.
07:58 PM on 02/07/2013
Perhaps as part of Jodi's premeditation to murder, she should have saved some money up for a good private lawer.

It's pathetic this woman is able to smear this man in death and have her story believed out of some misandrist hatred and female pity play. Nothing she's stated justifies what she admittedly did (not to mention has previously lied about with 2-3 false versions). People have so many issues with men they're willing to believe her story without question and don't even realize she's working on others' projected hatred and distrust of men to get herself off.

This is another Casey Anthony in the making. That is what she REALLY meant when she boasted no jury would convict her. These women aren't stupid. They play on the very societal biases they complain about when it suits them: benevolent sexism.

yes, but un like casey, this one is taking the stand. and no doubt this will be her un doing as is the case many times over with defendents. she thinks she is "so smart" she can take the stand.
12:57 AM on 02/08/2013
if you dont want to be spoken of dishonorably after death, then you should live honorably while allive.

Travis did not live honorably unfortunately.

And Jodi is not living honorably unfortunately.

Be sure your sins will find you out. We need not worry, she will get her just due.

Thank you for proving my point. You're making definitive statements about the man's character based on what? The word of a woman who's already a proven liar trying to save herself from deathrow? 
Like I said, people like you will buy into her lies because your NEED to believe men are more evil just reveals your deep personal issues and really has no bearing on the case at hand. Whatever he did "dishonorably" she was right there with him and kept coming back for it. Don't forget this while you're trying to deliver some homespun gibberish you think is wisdom. 
12:57 PM on 02/07/2013
Shooting him could be considered self defense, but multiple stabbings and the slitting of the throat is not self defense. That is truly overkill.

I don't even think she could convince a jury of self defense, even if she'd only shot him once. People rarely attack other people when they are in the shower, naked and wet.
02:21 PM on 02/07/2013
it was probably a surprise attack that's why she waited until he was in the shower

She is absolutely "criminally insane". That used to be an actual legal term. It NEEDS to be brought back to the courts. Those convicted were housed in separate facilities than the prisons. Very TIGHT facilities. This legal cr-- of "temporary insanity" is just that. Cr--.
He was sociopathic himself in that he was manipulating her without conscience. He felt no normal moral boundaries using her knowing she was feeling emotions toward him. She was mentally fragil and look what happened. WHO the He-- does what she did ?? A crazy person !!!
04:43 PM on 02/07/2013
We are only hearing her side. She could have been his prostitute meaning he was paying her for sex. Before Travis she had 10K in her bank account. How does a server have that much money in her account? Servers earn less than min wage.
08:21 PM on 02/07/2013
Yes, a guy who likes sex is now a sociopath; guess that makes almost all of us sociopaths then. People get used for things all the time. She was using sex to manipulate him., but apparently, you think it's okay for women to manipulate men with sex, and when it doesn't work out, they get to murder the man.

The old gender stereotypes come into play - it's his fault because he's a man and not her fault because she's a woman.

Doesn't her claim that he gave her a tee shirt with "Travis Alexander's" printed across it contradict her position that he was hiding their relationship?
08:05 PM on 02/07/2013
Right....I didn't assume it was a control effort on his part....just a cutesy type joke to show how he felt about her at that time. That of course is if he gave it to her because it is suspect since she is saying that he did.
