Good Day is getting pissy cause the rest of us can see right through LA Guy. Did it ever occur to you that our men sit next to us and laugh at the two of you? Neither of you are as interesting as you think you are but you are mildly entertaining!

Heard about it... LBPD in OIS almost every week.
I like their style, many two man units and highly visible.
The new Chief (Mc Donald) is ret from LAPD, he may run for Sheriff.
LBPD is a great Dept, it's a City of over 500 Million.
It's has morphed hard core, dangerous, a few idyllic spots,
like Belomont Shore, Naples, Park Estates. Every type of urban
renewal propject has failed. About 80% hood , but Cal State Long Beach still a popular destination, btw big in nursing, registered physical therapy and criminal justice majors...also large Gay population
Several highly regarded Hospitals, including the renown Long Beach Memorial. Also, a large Veteran's Hospital.
LBPD is one of the few that still runs their own Academy and Lab...also a great Class I FD
500 million? I don't think so.

You were not asked if you wore a bra (unless someone knows you are a cross dresser). You did the asking of Good Day.
I appreciate the LE and the good job they do. It is a shame, however, they have the likes of you in it, if you ever were.

You are clearly projecting quite a bit of behavior and characteristics on TA that r not supported in any evidence anywhere. U r also ridiculously full of yourself and full of crap. Your pontificating and little "life details" are laughable. BTW, you refer to Jodi Arias as educated and demure. She is neither - she never ever graduated High School. Good sense you've got there guy :)
I wonder what Dr. DeMarte would say. ;-)

First, LA guy, I seriously lol when I read "I'm in the big leagues here in LA"! This is no longer educated banter. Now I just think you're a dumbass trying to feel big over the Internet. So, if you want to go there...what makes you assume I'm not? You're ignorance just showed. I'm in Palm Springs now but born and raised in LA. And if you truly were/are one of the big dogs, then we've probably met. But judging from your posts about this case...I doubt it! Sarah is right about there being something seriously off with you. You will see in the end that she will be convicted and then realize your "opinion" is lacking common sense and your personality could use a little fine tuning also :)
Is gloating allowed if she gets at least 40 years, life in prison or death penalty?

Ok, maybe I'm revealing too much here but this all seems ridiculous to me! And what's all this talk of "how he treated her"? He's a guy and she was putting out! There is something strangely conventional about the crowd analyzing his "behavior". She practically whispered that he came on her back because it was such a painful memory. And dear Lord, can I even repeat it?.... He.....well, he....bent her over! There I said it and now I feel dirty! I've never heard of such acts! And then he had the audacity to not take her as a wife! He absolutely deserved to have his throat slashes from ear to ear!
Now that the self-defense b.s. has been debunked, they scramble for "heat of passion"...
Almost 30 stab wounds including slit throat and a gunshot wound to the face is not "heat of passion"...
It's vengeance gone wild.

Everything that falls out of her mouth is b.s. She made him pose with a huge bottle of KY Jelly. Wonder if she had a gun/knife on him or someone else had a gun'knife on him while she snapped pictures. She certainly seems to have a lot of people who owe her favors.

She cried wolf one too many times. Also, according to her, she has been a victim of abuse since she was about 7 years old. I think she was going for the Sybil defense. Maybe she read the book.
She acts like she is a victim like the woman from "When Rabbit Howsl" who had MPD/dissociative disorder.

What is this with your unreasonable faith in JA's unreasonable diatribe? So you hope to hook up with her for Advanced S&M classes? My vision of you, my dirty ole man, is such that I would not think even JA would stoop that low.
As far as JVM, she will not believe anyone who says they were shaking like one of her precious Chihuahuas!
40 Shades of Grey has entered pop culture? May 1% of the population, horny women betwee 30 and 40?
Come on, LA, get real or get off OR keep being a pissing post for those who know you are full of crap and have some sort of unknown agenda.
Like I wrote, her story is b.s. and having GS back her up is meaningless. Is he another one of her dirty little secrets?

No one knows exactly what happened. The Medical Examiner never said what kind of knife was used.
The Knife could have been readily available, maybe they used it to cut the duct tape.
Exhibit #40:
http://blinkoncrime.com/wp-content/uploads/20...
Duct tape can be seen around Travis' arm in one of the photos that Jodi took of him lying on his bed. I wonder why the prosecutor hasn't mentioned it.
If he can't prove that she and maybe an accomplice forced TA to do certain things or even tortured him, he can't go there.

CONFIRMED : Matt McCartney was involved in the forged paedophile letters.
SHANNA HOGAN, author of Picture Perfect [via phone with Jane Velez-Mitchell]: Yes. That was one of the most shocking moments in court. We've known about this for a while. She communicated with her ex boyfriend, Matthew McCartney, through jail and he was involved in creating these letters that were later proven to be forgeries. And that was the only substantial evidence that was given to produce her -- to back up her statement.
So when he gave his first interview to the attorneys, he gave a very different story. And Jodi needed him back into the jail to talk about her version of events so he could come back and support her claim. So it was -- it was basically her soliciting false testimony from behind bars.
Where's MM now? The only witness left is that Geffner guy from California. I will not even watch him. Saw some of his seminars. I already know his attitude.
