The Trial of Jodi Arias

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.

wiki article

MSM coverage-

ABC news

nydailynews

HLN

and of course huffpo coverage. they have about 15 links on said site with TONS of comments.

huff-po

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”.

fucking bullshit.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if she walks or gets a slap on the wrist but I hope they throw the bus at her. I have much less sympathy for her than a man whose ex-wife steals his kids and house and those guys don’t get to kill their ex-wives. She had the entire legal system at her back if he was abusing her.

  2. Your last sentence shows her arrogance. She truly believes she won’t be held accountable for her actions.

    Good Lord…….. Although, if Casey Anthony got off, I think there’s a fairly good chance this looney tune will too 😦

    Fuck. The justice system should have labels on the doors to the courtrooms similar to those on bathrooms.

    Justice for Him
    Justice for Her

    And here i was thinking equality before the law actually existed. Silly me.

    Paul Ekman, a psychologist at UC San Francisco did an experiment to see how good people actually were at spotting a liar. Most people, even in law enforcement, sucked. He found however a miniscule segment of the population who he called truth wizards, people with an uncanny ability to ferret out lies. One of them has a blog, and she has been covering this trial, and she just ain’t buying anything Arias says:

    This blog is a great one to follow anyway because she teaches you how she does it.
