I've never watched anything like this in my life before. But once I started watching and following it, I can't stop. I feel like i'm almost taking it personally.

I definitely see where you are coming from, but the reason america is so outraged is because of the brutality of this crime. And then on top of that she has lied and lied, to save her own a$$, and putting his family through more turmoil. Don't know if you have seen the photo's of his body, but to me...
Knowing what she did and SEEING what she did is a mind-blowing difference.
And it REALLY pisses people off when she cares more about doing her makeup and looking put together when getting arrested than actually feeling sorry for what she has done. Listen, she did this, she made the conscience decision to do this and she SHOULD face the consequences wether it's her choice or not.

Oh well, interesting trial and the law has always intrigued me :)
It'll be interesting, if they televise the Zimmerman case.
What is the Zimmerman case about?

Hey Peggy, Read page 102 of this thread and you can see for yourself what happened between me and Good Day. I was not defending a "troll" any more than I defend (support or enable) someone who demeans or frustrates another poster.

As for Samuels, I understand the defense trying to habilitate his testimony. For me, I do not care so much about what I see as his unethical behaviour ("humanizing" him to some). The fact Samuels did not have Arias take another test after he learned that she had been lying to him, gives validation to his findings being questioned. His "typos," "mistake" or "oversight" only confirms the doubt of his findings. He had enough time before this trial for Arias to retest but it did not happen. I am very curious to hear the jurors questions to him.

Hello everyone :) LA Guy, like the comments...
Hope you are feeling better ... spent half of my day getting financial records in order for my new mortgage in Marina Del Rey, henceforth referd to as MDR. What a hassle. Need every page (even if they are blank) of bank statments, four years tax returns and even my old divorce decree...lol...this is even when well established with my bank, with a 800 credit score and pre-approved. Can't beat a 3.5% fixed interest rate, 30 years, with 20% down, no points. Remember back in the 80's when interests rates were 14% plus. Property values are being unrealisticaly run up again in Cal, it's crazy.

The fact that Jodi wanted to put on some make up speaks volumes about her state of mind and the alternative reality that she was living in after she killed Travis. She wasn't thinking logically, no one who is about to be arrested for committing a crime would do something like this.

I don't think that killing Travis was a conscious choice, I don't believe the murder was premeditated, any crime investigator, other than Flores, knows that the crime scene was very disorganized and that there was no planning involved. Something went terribly wrong in the last few minutes of their "sexual rendezvous".

So, a new round of jury questions, this time for Dr Samuels. It's weird, not allowed in most states and there are damn good reasons for it

They could be revealing though.

I think that would be a very logical argument for anyone other than Jodi. Jodi is a very self involved person, she was like that before Alexander, while she was with him and even now. She cares about herself, no one else. That's just my opinion.

Just ready to post to the same, then you beat be to the punch. Her behavoir in the interrogation room speaks volumnes as to her state of minds (dissociative behavoir). LA Guy has coined the last Fiften Minutes phenomena, non premeditation. Was the crime scene investigation disorganized, dout that, but none are perfect. Dt Flores is a pro and remember his position on the first shot.

Another Poster,
There was a guy in tv today with a dummy showing exactly where TA was stabbed. Those wounds are defensive, the grouping of the wound and a few of them on his head show that he was being attacked, not the other way around. I believe he was crouched over trying to protect his head instinctively.

And none of the things she has done BEFORE she got caught shows remorse, not only no remorse but it was quite the opposite. She is now trying her best to "act" remorseful, but only because she's caught and she's trying to save herself.
I'm not a really religious person, but if this girl really did what I believe she did, the JUDGE she really needs to fear is GOD

Thank you :) about 80% better. I'm so excited for you! I know, all of the paperwork... best time to buy, right now. So great! So nice to know you're getting what you want and no one can show up with cash above asking and take it :)
Funny, I was thinking of referring to it as MDR.
* I have a 30 year 4% fixed. It was a challenge for me because it was down to the wire, because the first 2 lenders were sitting on my docs.#3 was my brother's friend who took it over and got it done.:)
