Arizona jury to consider again death penalty for Jodi Arias in September
MSN News ^ | March 17 2014 | David Schwartz

Posted on 03/17/2014 6:33:14 PM PDT by CorporateStepsister

PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona judge on Monday set a September court date to try again to determine whether convicted murderer Jodi Arias will be put to death for killing her ex-boyfriend nearly six years ago, court officials said.

Arias was convicted by a jury in May 2013 of murdering Travis Alexander, whose body was found slumped in the shower of his suburban Phoenix home in June 2008. He had been stabbed multiple times, shot in the face and had his throat slashed.

But the jury deadlocked on whether the former California waitress should be executed or face life in prison.

That was when she was looking for sympathy.

Later on she swore she'd be a force for good if allowed to live.

I think she was pulling reverse psychology. I sincerely hope that she gets the death penalty since I think a life sentence would end up sparking a huge backlash.

Her defense team will just keep making motions and Stephens will keep hearing them til everyone involved is old and gray.

I wish they would make her wait in Perryville. She has to go there eventually whether DP or life.

Yeah she did; she mentioned all sorts of stuff and I wondered, why not do good stuff while you are free? She’s just thrown her entire life away. She had her chance.

Hopefully a judge will get sick of this and then end up pushing this forward. Patience has to run out for this woman.

Whatever they do, she’ll spend a lot of time in prison... either life, or most of life appealing the death penalty. I wonder if she’ll get any marriage proposals, like a lot of male convicts do? Talk about living dangerously.

To me it was huge immaturity on the part of the jury. All that evil and cruelty and the jury has problems manning up and then convicting and sentencing her to death.

I swear we have school marms as jurists.

This to me is why men need to learn to start abstaining. I believe that if Travis had been abstinent he wouldn’t have hooked up with Jodi and ended up stalked and then dead.

I never said that.

Crazy people are out there and I daresay that it’s getting worse.

He wasn’t just dating her, he was doing all sorts of sick stuff with her. She was all for it, but she was only becoming more and more crazy as Travis made it more clear that he wasn’t going to marry her and was just using her. He didn’t break it off completely, even after she was stalking and vandalizing and threatening, he still porked her even on the day she decided to murder him!

I mean really, for pity’s sake!

The minute she started stalking his friends, he should have taken legal action. If he had called the police and filed reports and filed a restraining order, I am dead sure she would have been caught out and locked up for a while.

All that and he still had the horny hots for her. Stupid.

I’ve been abstinent for nearly ten freaking years and I daresay that it’s saved me from a lot of crazies.

I meant the principle and I never condone murder. I thought FR was a place where abstinence is supposedly supported. If he hadn’t been bonking her and letting her get away with stalking, I THINK he might still be alive.

I’m female; I am alive because I am clear minded and I believe that abstinence is a result of that. I’ve been through a lot and I am glad I decided long ago to avoid sexual intimacy.

Murder is a direct violation of God’s will for His plan for the murdered person’s life. Jodi murdered a promising man who was making a positive difference and in my view, the wench deserves much worse than the needle.

The jury failed to do the right thing.

More likely a bunch of spoiled suburban housewives who didn’t like doing ‘icky’ things like sentencing a murdering bitch to death.

Didn’t like the ‘unpleasant’ reality.

I’m with you.

Men who play around take enormous risks. Saddled with financial (and emotional, if not a jerk) responsibility for a child for at least 18 years, STDs, charges of date rape that cannot be fully refuted, and the not totally impossible chance of a psycho that kills you.

Women who sleep around of course take even greater risks. They’re a lot more likely to get killed, for instance. They can, however, at their sole discretion get rid of any pregnancies that result.

Sex only with a marital partner, or at minimum with someone you’ve actually developed a caring relationship with before jumping into the sex greatly reduces these risks.

<><><><

the same logic for why folks should not let their kids study abroad in college, they might get amanda knoxed.

1 case in a zillion, but since it gets a lot of press, it is made out to be the norm. Lots of men hook up. 99.9999999999999% do not get stalked and killed.

And how funny is the motion that we men will abstain?

I’m not suggesting that you never pork, but really, do the same as women are encouraged to do.

AS for cases, in this situation, there are increasing amounts of psychos out there, this is different from Amanda Knox. Women out there are getting crazier and a lot of men are still rutting around as if things have not changed. They have.

Yes.

I wonder if it was a hard childhood that made him more oriented towards pleasure and he had issues keeping up with the high standards of the Mormon faith. He had to go through a lot more and it tends to wear you out and make you less able to really resist the darker pleasures of life.

Having had a horrific childhood, I empathize.

Thanks.

I wonder how different things would have been if he had been able to confess and talk about it with his Mormon friends. It was the fact that he had to keep his antics a secret since he knew he would be condemned badly for fornication.

Women these days think that no matter how badly they behave, they deserve a ring and Jodi obviously thought she had a right to decide the course of Travis’ life. Women are like that these days. They point at a guy, sleep with him, and then feel entitled to a ring.

Key word, entitled; Jodi wanted Travis, made that clear, but what chills me, is how she punished Travis for not complying. In her mind, Travis had to be brought to heel. She could have had a lot of men, but she chose Travis, thus making it clear that Travis wasn’t allowed to refuse.

Men should realize that it can happen to any one of them and women are no longer disappearing on orders afte the guy is satisfied. It’s harder to break up with a girlfriend and I did hear that stalking and stalking related murders are on the rise.
