The Trial of Jodi AriasPosted: February 9, 2013
since no one else seems to be covering this in the ‘sphere- I WILL.
unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you’ve no doubt heard of the case of a 32yo woman who killed her lover by shooting him and stabbing him multiple times. you HAVENT? i’ll let you get caught up.
and of course huffpo coverage. they have about 15 links on said site with TONS of comments.
ok, now that you’re up to speed, let me say this- i’m VERY sympathetic to jodi’s plight, sadly…..it’s common. but honestly, she “felt like a prostitute” but stayed with him. and ultimately decided that shooting him in the face and stabbing him 27 times (thusly beheading him) was the best solution over……oh, i dunno- LEAVING HIM!!!!!!
i’m also scratching my head at her “he attacked me” accusation. ok. i couldn’t attack ANYONE while i’m showering. and she shot, then stabbed him (or vice-versa). someone being attacked incapacitates you and runs. they DO NOT stab you 27 times and shoot you in the face. but the MSM still paints her out as a victim. look, i’m not defending the dude, he was using her, that was obvious. but was KILLING HIM her best option?
so were her actions REALLY justified? was shooting him in the face and stabbing him repeatedly the solution? and is her history of bad relationships a serious alibi? GTFO.
look, this whole thing is a tragedy, i’m not trying to make light of it. but i’m tired of man on woman crime being an atrocity while woman on man crime is marginalized. she even had the audacity to say (on camera) that she’ll never get a guilty charge. then her defense team went into PR mode and she went into “victim mode”.
