Arias says in interview that she wants death
AP ^ | 5/9/2013 | BRIAN SKOLOFF

The jury has rendered its verdict — Jodi Arias is guilty of first-degree murder — but the trial is far from finished.

The same jury now returns to the courtroom Thursday to decide whether she deserves to die for killing her one-time boyfriend on June 4, 2008 at his suburban Phoenix home.

The sheer brutality of the attack and previous testimony from the Maricopa County Medical Examiner that Travis Alexander did not die a quick death will be at the heart of the prosecution's argument that Jodi should receive the ultimate punishment for her crime.

Alexander was stabbed and slashed nearly 30 times, shot in the forehead and had slit his throat from ear to ear, leaving the motivational speaker and businessman nearly decapitated. His decomposing body was found in his shower about five days later by friends.

Arias spoke out about the verdict minutes after her conviction Wednesday, telling a TV station that she would "prefer to die sooner than later."

"Longevity runs in my family, and I don't want to spend the rest of my natural life in one place," a tearful Arias told Fox affiliate KSAZ. "I believe death is the ultimate freedom and I'd rather have my freedom as soon as I can get it."

Interesting question: she is guilty of a crime that warrants death.

She wants to die as this will minimize her punishment.

So should she be given life without parole in order to maximize her pain...or should she be granted her wish?

(Personally, I'd say show her mercy...and hook the IV up)

Let God sort her out. We have REAL problems to think about and this is not one of them.

a bullet to the head would be cheaper than cable tv and free healthcare that prisoners get.

She is already trying projection on the jury. Hoping that since they did convict her when she said they wouldn’t, that they will now give her life when she is asking for death.

I don’t think there is a juror that is not looking forward to handing down the ultimate penalty so they can just get rid of this lying, uber-manipulative bitch at some date in the future and put a definitive finality to this gutter scum.

I stand with Rep. Stockman in laying total indignation to all of the news media, Fox included, who thought that at least three hours of this coverage was warranted when the Benghazi hearings were there to cover.

We are sooo friggin screwed as a country.

She has most likely never willingly told the truth about anything unless it was going to get her something.

The only curious thing would be what kind of parents raised this thing, but I am too busy to take the time to find out. I have not heard a word about her family and that is just fine with me, except how many other sociopaths did they raise.

Oh, I agree she SHOULD be put to death.

But not painlessly. I suggest feeding her feet-first into an industrial shredder. . .

Prison is supposed to be a punsihemnet for the crimes someone has committed. But in her case there is no hope that she will learn from her ways and seek to be a better citizen.

So rather than risk some future bleeding heart liberal setting her free to kill again, connect her to the chair, turn on the lights and walk away until they turn the power off for failure to pay the bill.

I believe AZ is one of the few states that still has the gas chamber.

Crazy manipulative b!tch is trying to psych the jury into giving her life instead of death.

I say give her death.
Then let her live with it hanging over her head for the next 20 years while the system does its thing.

I would only add that the machine be set at its slowest speed.

Here’s what I think to your question. While it would be nice to give a convicted murderer the opposite of what they say they wish for, I can’t trust one word of what that convicted murderer says. I have to go by what the punishment dictates in the circumstances. In this case, I believe that the murder was premeditated and heinous. I believe Arias deserves the death penalty. Society gets to make the call here, not the convicted. Whatever the jury decides, that’s fine with me.

Kill her, it’s the only way to make sure she doesn’t kill again.

Shepard Smith (fix news) lead story was Arias verdict stating it was: “...the verdict heard around the world!” (no joke)

He mentioned Benghazi later...and begrudgingly.

Shepard Smith has officially jumped the shark.

She was out of control at a young age. I think her parents threw up their hands.
