LG, ok, the choking... not sure that would've actually happened, because a choke hold that causes the loss of consciousness is very serious... TA was strong and a choke hold that serious would've killed her, right?
* Another q: JA had spoken to LV many times about the abuse (before the trial started), so why was JA so cavalier when she testified about her involvement w/him, but now she appears to be sad about it while LV is testifying?
I would guess that was some of their sex play if it even happened. That way if she took a lie detector test, she could say that he choked her. Well, she won't get to have all of her props and play time in jail/prison. Maybe her hormones are winding down and she isn't thinking about sex 24/7.

The challenge she has is that she only had some minor cuts on her. She was not in bad enough shape after the murder to NOT get in her car and drive away to go on a date, no less.

I looked and I think Darryl Brewer may have been Mormon also. She seemed to want to insert herself into that community. I don't know if she felt like church people would be easy prey. I wonder what would happen if she did happen to be released and monitored. I think this was done once before and that's when they figured out she had a plot to flee prosecution and she had weapons with her. She is paranoid. No doubt about it. If there is a next time, she won't be able to get the DROP on the person because people now know that meek, soft-spoken female is all b.s. The expert witness says women need to stop trying to be Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty and need to tap into the power of being the evil stepmother. She is very definitely feminist and seems to be angry when men achieve more than women. It must infuriate her that Juan Martinez questions her credentials. She has five (5) years of education and he has at least eight (8). She probably has continuing education credits, but she does not have a doctorate and is not working on a doctorate as far as I know. She has found her niche in doing support groups and seminars on certain topics.

Has the expert witness ever been in a situation where she had to defend herself or die? I think that is a pertinent question.

Darryl wasn't interested in Mormonism; I know he testified about that.

Anyone who hasn't seen Det. Flores trying to get info from Jodi Arias during his police interviews from July 15, 2008, you really need to see them all. see you tube
First time I've seen these.... OM she has a dark soul, so calm about everything... answered my own q... she was odd, nessed up, bizarre, long before Travis ... her lack of reactions speak volumes;
Enough said.

LG, She is Casey Anthony's older sister. Have you seen All of the interrogation tapes. She deliberately wasted Det. Flores' time, hour after hour. She could've just claimed the 5th, and lawyered up, but Noooo, she had to waste his time, all the while loving the attention from Det. Flores.
LG, she is the epitome of disturbed.
Det. Flores had the patience of Job.

LG, she can never get out...
Have you heard/seen her say, ".... I know that he's in a good place, he's fine, I know that he's doing great, but what about all of his friends? all of his family that are here? and they're just going through all this, And I Know That It's Temporary, but it's so very much right now..."
WT????
Just throw away the key! And, please give her a tubal ligation, immediately.
WT, It's just temporary??? Really? What a cold, soulless _____.

She is a sociopath.
Time, counseling, or self-help books from LV or Dr. Samuels, can't fix this, ever.
No break for her. DP required, because TA's abuse didn't make her core values change to become such a heartless person who thinks the devastation of losing a loved one is "Temporary". What a sicko.

LG :) Good Morning , happy black coffee *
... definitely going to sleep cozy, sans flannel now :)

Trial Day 1:
The new and improved JM, "Your honor, in the case of the state of AZ vs Jodi Arias, the prosecution submits the ME report, the crime scene photographs, the voluminous mountain of evidence, and most importantly, the aforementioned interrogation tape, proving that Jodi Arias killed TA and has no remorse. And, the prosecution rests."

Once she is sentenced, I expect this case to fade into oblivion after a few weeks. The forums will dry up. Notice that Travis Alexander's topics are already pretty much toast. Her 15 minutes of lip licking, tongue/cheek pocking and double jointed finger bending are about to be over. Someone went as far to make a video of her allegedly farting during her testimony. Subtle as a fart in court during
a murder trial. Did the judge ask her to please refrain from farting in the courtroom? I know "fart" is a vulgar term for flatulence or flatus, but it seems to fit her. Farts find her. They are always behind her.
Oh, my...I need coffee...STAT...lol

I wonder if Willmott and Nurmi have heard/seen her say, "... It's temporary, but it's all so right now..."? referring to the magnitude of TA's death, during her interrogation.
She's a bad seed who had an attractive shell.. that's all she is. She's not a good girl w/a good heart, who got caught up in a bad world.

She shouldn't be allowed to do anything that Travis Alexander can do.

That would include marriage and having a family.
That would include shopping/sightseeing.
That would include living in his home he bought.
That would include driving a car.

That would include sex of any kind (not having).

That would include eating.

That would include breathing.

That would include bathing.

Do you get my drift?

Det. Flores gets JA's real and uncoached view on TA's death. Amazing, what is at her core wo/a defense atty to keep her quiet: http://www.youtube.com/watch... *** you can start at 7:50 if you're short on time, and watch the next 3-5 minutes... seals her DP deal for me, no remorse, because she thinks he's better off now.

Some have written that JAA should get life in prison without parole so she can sit and think about what she did. Does anyone, besides me, get that a sociopath has no conscience and no ability to feel bad about what he/she does.

Does anyone realize that she was caught with knives in yet another rental car and 9 mm bullets. Apparently, the gun to match that was in yet another rental car.

In my opinion, Mr. Martinez is mopping the floor with Ms. Violette.
He's making her look stupid by making judgments by only getting her opinion by reading documents.

Bullets and a gun and they haven't brought it to court? Really? Right and JM is just going through the trial because he wants to spend a million dollars of tax payers money. Come on.

Mopping the floor? He thinks the jury is stupid and is tryin to twist her words. She's not changing her statements and him asking the same question over and over when she's answered it would infuriate me as a juror. You can't put most things in a yes or no box without having to explain it. Him trying to get her to do that and think they jury doesn't notice shows just how dumb he thinks they are. He's losing with this witness. If he would sit down now he would be better off.
