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.
Watch her body language also. It speaks volumes.

I heard the song today...taken in, taken in again.
So many people are taken in by her.

At least her bedroom the size of a closet in her grandparents' home in Yreka got her accustomed to living in close quarters in jail. Anything short of death row would be a travesty for Travis and his family.

Is it just me, or does anyone else believe she's getting a break because she "was attractive" when she took all of her photos, and killed him?
(I think he was scum for how he treated her, whether or not she said she liked it. And, he was playing women for fools.. he was a lost soul and a mean guy)
How can someone get out of prison, ever, if they say that other people dealing w/a death is just a temporary thing??? I wish I had a direct line to Willmott & Nurmi to ask them is they saw her say that. She's not a sweet innocent person.
It's difficult to fanthom, but we hear hear it all too often about "being in a better place" from those who kill love one's.
JA is a quasi mental, who had not onyl been affected by BWS, but far out religous dogma and dark Wicca programing. Still believe that she waws not disposed to kill, nor derived pleasure from it. as is the case of most killers.

I hope this doee not change your opinion of me, but TA was not a bad guy... a superior person to JA in that he did not harbor dark thoughts.

I could have handled Jody. I could have been a friend to TA. If I had met them seperately along the road of life. TA needed an older Brother, who had been around. This is a very sad human tragedy. Hopefully, JA seeks redemption in the Christian sense,

LG, did you hear the chronology of TA's women: he had several women at the same time, all oblivious to what he was doing. That's not nice. And as much as I dislike JA, he was mean to her. JA and you, ok now I'm sick... LG :)

If you are a proponet of the DP, like I happen to be, you should realize that placing JA of Death Row, will be another link in the chain in the abolishment of the DP. Slow down, Mama, and think of the ramifications in an astute sense.

LG, on his 16 page rant that I linked earlier, he called her a corroded carcass, among other names...
* LG, I would be happy to have you treat one of my brothers as a big brother.(I don't even want to see his initials on the same line as yours.)
I wouldn't want TA in my family telling my brothers how to tear a person down.

No, unaware of the chronology, only knew about the Mormon girl he was seeing (tire slashing incident)...only memntioned the routine about being able to handle JA, in my wayward days when I was going to those parties.

I had a great thing w/AT&T, and entertained myself in many ways related to running, tennis, basic ballet... always had a Dr. that was Sports Med. I've never had a shin splint, knee pain, or stress fracture in all the years and distances. It's all so interesting to me. Fellow employees used to call me Dr.:) I just love to learn, and am amazed by gifted professionals.

Define proponent.
Do you even know what it means or how it is spelled?

Whether Arias actually gets executed or not, Death Row female inmate #4 is where she needs to be.
What will her reaction be if she hears this outcome?

It's unfortunate she didn't fall into Crater Lake. Check its depth.

Goodmorn Luv:)

Luv who you are and your approach to life. At times people will ask me about my hobbies. I usually reply reply that I like to think and be aware (knowledge). I mentioned before, that many male co-workers over the years, coped an attitude (passive aggessive) with me. You were way ahead of the curve in staying physically fit. Can just see you in my minds eye now, at various stages, in tennis shorts, running gear....something like poetry in motion, with a very tight clean look, shoes looking brand new. I have been in some AT&T HQ's, and know that they run a tight ship and require a clean pofessionak demeanor. One of their main offices where I would acquire (subponea) phone records from when I was in LE, was in a plush high rise on Ocean Ave in Santa Monica. It was a beauty contest (lol) in there.

Did you catch any of the HLN stuff in the evening...seriously, they were on the subject of JA's high IQ and a subtle shift was occuring in tone, as to the Jury buying some of JA's defense tactics. Martinez playing into their hand.

As to the Snow White tactic, contrary to what most think, it could have been a stroke of genuis on his part, in illustrating to jury the fancifull nature of LV and the cult like nature of extreme feminism. Some actually promote a theory that consensual intercourse constitutes a battery. Not infering that LV has proposed anything like that. LV's heart is in the right place though and she is highky knowledgeable. Much of her testimony is highly informative and accurate as to the phenomena of the power dynamic between partners and domestic violence and the toll it takes on all both parties involved

I give a lot of credit to Martinez, although I have been been critical of him. He's a real pro and a good man. The better Atty and a very cool guy is Nurmi.
