Jodi Arias Murder Trial – Day Thirty-Seven

03/25/2013

Guess we’ll get more Martinez slice ‘em and dice ‘em on the schlock doc!

Screen shot 2013-03-25 at 3.02.35 PMWell, court did not start at 10, but 10:18 MST.

We are talking about the 2 different test scores and Samuels still can’t give a decent response as to why he rescored the test.  He continues to say he was missing part of the original scoring when he rescored the test.

Interesting he said he was out of town when he rescored!

 

Says the numbers aren’t relevant to his diagnosis of PTSD!

The numbers of 15 and 17 make no difference.

OMG, now he says he has a third set of numbers!!!!  The third number is 16, lol.

Sidebar…

Onto to the DSM criteria…

D1 – Trouble sleeping or staying asleep.  Answer is no.

D2 – Anger or irritability.  Answer is yes based on her relationship with her mother.

Juan points out this has been occurring since her teen years!   So, it shouldn’t be counted…not post (after the murder).

She and mama always had a difficult, contentious relationship!

Lengthy sidebar…

Juan shows Samuels several exhibits that he recognizes.

Willmott again asks to approach…

Sheesh, she’s bitchy today!

When the defendant was a teenager she treated her mother like crap and they argued all the time?  Yes.

OMG!  Willmott again with the approach…

Jodi told Samuels there were several calls with her mother and they were nasty…why would you believe a person who has lied repeatedly?

D3 – difficulty concentrating.  You found that also, right?  Yes.

After 30 hours of interviews she told him she had difficulty reading so he thought that was okey dokey to use as criteria.

She read the Book of Mormon cover-to-cover?  Yes.

She read her journals?  Yes.

D4 – Hyper-vigilance?  Yes, she was aware of the sounds and noise in the prison.  She had disturbed sleep.

Didn’t you tell me she had no trouble sleeping?  I would have to look at my notes.

Well let me play that for you.

Willmott asks to approach…

So nice the taxpayers are getting soaked by the defense!

The trial is giving me PTSD!!!

Juan plays the tape and Samuels says clearly she wasn’t sleeping!

Samuels says she reported the sounds in jail were louder and the lights being brighter.

She still had no problems sleeping?  Yes.

D5 – Exaggerated startled response?  Yes.

You did not find that?  No.

Section 3 says 3 out of 7, but I found 5!

C7 – Sense of shortened future.

She was suicidal?  Yes, but she had those thoughts before.

So this criteria had to happen after the trauma?  Yes.

In high school she said she was going to commit suicide?  Yes.

She told Mr. McCartney she was going to commit suicide?  Yes, but they were for different reasons!

There was no indication in jail that she was on suicide watch?  No.

C6 – Restricted range of affect.  Unable to have loving feelings?  Yes.

Her range of emotions was restricted when I spoke with her.

In the interviews with Det.  Flores, she actually was giggling at times?  Yes.

The interview on 48 Hours, she was smiling?  Yes.  She built up a defense mechanism to deal.  She created an alternative universe.

Gobsmacked here!

You still found C6 as a criteria?  Yes.

C5 – Feeling of detachment or estrangement from others.

She reported to feeling detached from others in the jail and couldn’t relate to them.

This was her first time in jail?  Yes.

C4 – is a no.  Samuels, I omitted it the number myself.

C3 – Inability to recall a certain important aspects of the trauma?  Yes.

This has to do with the fog?  In the beginning and end, yes.  Her amnesia was responsible for it.

Noon recess called!

Schlock doc taking a royal beating here…might as well toss PTSD diagnosis, lol!Hope Willmott put her big girl panties on during lunch break!

Hope Willmott put her big girl panties on during lunch break!

Court resumes at 1:35 with another damn approach…accckkkk.

Jury brought in at 1:43.

C2 – Samuels didn’t find.

C1 – Consistent with numbing of thoughts, feelings or conversations associated with the trauma.

You found that?  Yes.

Samuels took her original story as a defense mechanism.

It was a lie?  Not saying it was a lie.

She sent 20 irises’ to the grandmother?  Yes.

So that showed thought, no?  Yes.

Why would she send 20 irises if she wasn’t thinking about the trauma?  She had an alternative universe.

Objection…sidebar…

One of the things we know is she spoke with Leslie Udy?

Could you refresh my memory?

Objection…sidebar…

She told Ms. Udy that her children were going to play with Mr. Alexander’s children?  Yes, but she could not have had that conversation if she was avoiding the conversation.

She sent an 18-page letter to the family?  Yes.

She had to write it, mailed it and address it?  Yes.

She attended the memorial service for Mr. Alexander?   Yes.

So she wasn’t avoiding the trauma?  She’s dealing with her responsibility for the trauma.

She has to think about attending the memorial?  Yes.

She had to book an airline ticket?  Yes.

So there was thought process?  Yes.

Consciousness of guilt.  Trying to act “normal”.

After the death, she called and emailed Mr. Alexander so she had to be thinking?  Yes, she was behaving in a way of alternative reality.

She was staging the scene?  That wasn’t told to me.

Whiny Willmott asks to approach.

Best line of the day, Juan is “word-boarding” him.

Juan can’t get more than a dozen words out of his mouth before whiny Willmott asks to approach….grrrrr.

Do you remember Mr. Alexander called the defendant 3 names?  Yes.

Do you also remember Mr. Alexander told her he was nothing to her but a dildo with a heartbeat?  If I could read it, it would help.

Martinez gives him the exhibit to refresh his memory.

Samuels says he agrees Alexander made the comment, but…

Whiny again asks to approach!

So, in that conversation Mr. Alexander complains the defendant was using him?  Yes.

Is it possible according to your tests and review you are not objective and your finding is suspect because of your feelings for the defendant?  No, we are trained to be neutral observers.

Empathy and compassion are part of your training?  Yes.

Isn’t part of the training you are accurate?  Yes.  I missed a few numbers and letters, but has nothing to do with my diagnosis.

But, 15, 16, and 17 aren’t consistent?  It didn’t matter to my diagnosis.

In this case, you lost your objectivity?  Absolutely not.

No further questions!

We have another jury question.

If I were a juror, I would request to be able to bring my blankie and pillow to court!

Ahhh crap whiny is up.  She has been granted re-direct.  This totally sucks!  How many freakin shots does the defense get????

OMG! Willmott tried to sneak in the suicide letters that were already bounced!

So when Samuels said Jodi was sleeping, it was after taking tranquilizers for 8 months.

Afternoon recess til 3:10.

Willmott is getting real desperate!!!  She has to know Samuels has already blown the DV expert testimony!

This isn’t trial by ambush, its trial by bushwhack!

Back at 3:19.

Jury in at 3:21.

In you office do you have books in your office you would offer to your patients?  Yes.

Did Jodi tell you of buying a gun to kill herself?  No.

Did she tell you she tried to use a razor to kill herself?  No.

Jury didn’t buy the alternate reality, hahaha!

Willmott has gotten on my last nerve.

Martinez…

Did you gain some knowledge about the jail after we spoke?  No.

You blurted out during testimony she was suicidal?  I don’t recall.

Do you remember you said if she mentioned suicide, you didn’t know who to talk to at the jail?

Objection…approach.

You lack the knowledge of the Maricopa jail and who to report to?  I never had to there.

Creating an alternative reality is a way of covering up?  Yes.

Oh thank the lord.  Samuels gone!

Alyce LaViolette, Domestic Violence Expert should be up in 5 minutes, or 20 or tomorrow!

Alyce LaViolette on the stand.  Gives he CV.  Received her masters in 1980.  He thesis was never published.

Jodi looks excited about this witness.

This CV is going to take till the end of the day and Willmott is making sure of that!

She has worked with women, men, families, and children.

Her CV is pretty impressive.

Does she also consult on bagging groceries at A&P?

We’ll be back tomorrow at 1:30 EST.

    Do U think JM should have said the remark to Doc about having feelings for Jodi?? Did he go overboard? I’m a little freaked about that. It’s starting to look like even Juan is sick of this b-llsh-t, lets get it over with and soon!!

    In our opinion we think the jury already has those thoughts in their mind from Dr. No Nuts first day with JM. JM just reinforced it and it is now on everyone’s mind and in all probability TRUE!

    That is too funny!! What a sleuth you are!!!

    I agree with CiCi. He is just another man that JA worked her voodoo on and he got sucked in and JM called him on it. Plus he’s not called Dr. Quack for nothing!!!

    My mom started a shelter for abused women in the late 70′s early ’80′s. This woman has sold herself out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I totally agree! Read somewhere that she went up against JM in a prior case and he tore her to shreds! It should at least be more interesting that Dr. Quack!

    Didn’t get to hear her, but the fact that she has released a new edition of her book. The original was published in 2000 and only had 4 reviews when I first found it and one of those was from someone slamming her about this trial. It’s out in April but available for pre-order now, is quite telling to me – I’ve asked this before, isn’t this a conflict of interest, in other words monetary gain from the trial?

    03/25/2013 at 8:07 pm

    Trial watcher I do think that JM went overboard by accusing the doctor of having feelings for Jodi. Because he didn’t need to do that at all. He had the guy on so much already, why say that? I trust him to know what he’s doing- but I was surprised because why risk your credibility and risking sympathy for Samuels by going out on a limb like that?

  15. 03/25/2013 at 8:07 pm

    “Best line of the day, Juan is “word-boarding” him.” Love it!!

    “After 30 hours of interviews she told him she had difficulty reading.” Laine observed this on the Twit and asked why on earth then would he buy her a book?

    “Do you also remember Mr. Alexander told her he was nothing to her but a dildo with a heartbeat? ” Was that Dildo or Dido? bwahhhhahhh

    Do U think JM should have said the remark to Doc about having feelings for Jodi?? Did he go overboard?

    It shook him. ie Dr Dodgy and I don’t see that as a bad thing. What effect it had on the jurors well only time will tell.

    It is true though, she toyed on his compassion that is what manipulators do and it was because he felt sorry for her that he overstepped the mark ie his feelings for her caused him to get tunnel vision. An assessor should never ever allow themselves to be anything but dispassionate.

    Thank you donchais I look forward to your insightful commentaries on the JA trial. The defense team seems very unprofessional to me and due to their actions in court I have very little respect for them. Am curious to your thoughts on this and the effect it will have with the jury.

  28. 03/25/2013 at 8:24 pm

    “Was Snow White a Battered Woman?” treatise by LaViolette. With staunch support of women’s rights, also come the butch man haters. Trust me, I know. And this woman to peddle her services out to a cold blooded killer is indefensible. It’s disgusting. It negates any positive work she has done. It negates every child I saw in traction, every black eye and broken limb I observed. The fear I saw in these victim’s eyes…the sadness…And they know, the women in the shelters know what Jodi is doing. And on the flip side, I can report that when OJ was acquitted, women in these shelters, certain ones, cheered, black eyes, casts, broken bones and all. It’s a horror this woman would do this, but then again, maybe Jack the Ripper would need defense counsel.

    This woman is not qualified to testify, for either side. SInce 1978, her bona fides lack a committed hands on approach. Her experience is spotty. Volunteered 10 hours a week? Seriously?

    Donchais I followed up on this Towery guy and before he was executed he wrote letters to his attorney describing the humiliation of having female guards watch him go to the bathroom, seemingly not recognizing the irony considering he humiliated his victim in a similar but much worse manner, not allowing him to pull up his pants after he went to the bathrrom. He also expressed sympathy for his fellow death row inmate who sexually assaulted and killed a little girl and murdered and dismembered his mother. He said he was the sweetest, most polite guy he’d ever met and didn’t have any responsibility for his crime due to his mental retardation. Yeah tell that to his 8 year old victim. I bet she thought he was real sweet and polite.

    JW – And do you have your practice as well?
    AL – My private practice?
    JW – Yes…
    AL – Yes, I do
    JW – So besides coming here to testify, do you also have a private practice that you are running?
    AL – I, ah, hope so when I get back. AL then gives an uncomfortable laugh and turns to the jury box smiling sheepishly and very awkwardly. Then looks down at the floor.

    Whoa! She does know what she’s in for with Juan!!! I only heard the first time and now that I’ve seen it….she is very clearly uncomfortable. Can’t wait till Juan is up.I bet she regrets ever hearing the name Jodi Arias.

    Wow!!! Thanks Donchais & Ritanita absolutely fascinating – I’ve never seen a parole hearing before, plus we got to see some JuanAction!!! I think the defense had everything covered as they do in this case, even the “anal” came up!! Astounding! I love the way that Juan bought attention back to the real victim, the positive in this is that the parole boards are probably hearing the same tactics over and over again and are not swayed by them!! Jaunfastic!!!

Almost 2 days away from my Donchais blog fix – hopefully I’ll be around more tomorrow afternoon, I’m sure I’ll be seething over the DV sexpert and will need some of my pals on here to console and agree with me – lol That is if WillNot doesn’t take the whole afternoon going over her credentials, but the bright side is if she does it gives us more freedom to chat ~~~~~virtual hugs MMD~~~~ x

    Wow can ya say true advocate for justice!!! Have never seen anything like this and he is so emphatic and it seems like he could go on for hours without any notes. He certainly has condescending and sarcasm down to a ‘T’ when he refers to the felon as a victim. I have never seen anyone so passionate for the truth and for victim’s rights. He is truly awesome to watch in action and JA thankfully doesn’t have a prayer!!! These criminals can’t even be original with their excuses for their actions and obviously they all think it’s someone else’s fault. AZ is lucky to have JM. To bad there aren’t more like him.

    Thank you donchais that was really interesting and informative. I am though kinda thinking about going to sleep with the lights on after hearing the details of the crime!!!

    …chiming in (venting)…probably off-topic or repeating what someone else has already said as usual…but does anyone but me really care anymore…I’m starting to feel like Bridget Jones…and somebody else, but I can’t remember who…
    I feel like I could do a “Twelve Angry Men” rendition of why Dr. Doolittlegoodforclient’s words should be dismissed in total – he didn’t do the proper thing when the jodi said she felt ‘suicidal’. That’s serious to me because I know how people in that field are heavily trained in the severity of the claim. I mean, does the criteria for being put on suicide watch seriously depend on whether or not one has a fricken’ plan to carry it out? I’m a non-qualified, gal on the street (well, not literally) but common sense is a BFF of mine. And put your hats on now becuz I wonder how much the strain of being on suicide watch would have changed the jodi over these formative (i.e. formulating lies) years. Don’t think it would have added anything make-up could much cover up. I mean seriously, no singing contests? FU! How did she get out of that?? So Dr. Doo says he told her lawyers she mentioned suicide and they said, ‘hmmm, okay, thanks for the info doc…we’ll certainly let the authorities know.’ Right? 😉 Frankly, to spare us all the insanity as well as the taxpayers’ money, I wish she had formulated and carried out a plan. On the other hand, no. The only way I’m not wanting justice is if Travis is still alive and functioning as before. She’s admitted she ’killed’ him cuz the evidence was a bitch & a half (oh, crap!), but she’s too bold to believe she can’t get away with pre med ‘over-kill’ murder. I’m no queen, tho I do pretend to be sometimes, but off with her evil head! And let the defense “team” eat yummy types of cake. All day. And with a nice after dinner drink and dim lighting….ding dong, the witch is dead & I hope my career isn’t over like the dissed doctor.

    Well said Commerce1. Gouge your eyes…lmao. I’ve wanted to do that since I saw the unedited naked pictures of JA. But then I’d have to gouge out my brain too to erase the mental images!!

    I don’t even understand why they keep having her on. I understand once or twice because she was a friend of TA and has some insight to JA…but come on. Enough already.

    I’m not really sure TW. She looked like a woman but had the voice of a man. Shockingly so. Looked for the Adam’s apple but couldn’t find one. I, myself, have a rather deep voice and have been called “sir” several times on the phone but this one took by surprise.

    But I’ll take my voice over that of Miss Perky WillNot. I can’t stand listening to her squeak anymore.

    Matter of fact, I would’ve told them just to get her lockdown but then I don’t have a crush on her and don’t wanna make googlie eyes with her.

    Hey Tracey A! “Matter of fact, I would’ve told them just to get her lockdown but then I don’t have a crush on her and don’t wanna make googlie eyes with her.” Too Right!

    Do you think Travis knew about all the shower pics being taken before the last few? It looks like jodi didn’t use a flash in the ones before he saw her…like she was darting about the area secretly taking photos when Travis wasn’t looking. Maybe she was pretending to get ready to leave while he was in the shower (imagining her leaving, no doubt), or else, she was surreptitiously taking these photos when Travis believed she was already gone. That would mean she snuck back up on him…but that’s so gross I can’t even go there. On the other hand, that would well represent this sad example of a human.

    03/26/2013 at 12:02 am

    Hi Anna – I do think he knew the shower pics were being taken because of the similarity to the “Psycho” movie. I forget who posted that comparison but it was really disturbing. To me, it’s another sure sign of premeditation. JA was asking him to pose in certain positions to imitate that movie. Makes my friggin’ skin crawl thinking of that defenseless young man!

    Hi, I’ve been reading this site since I stumbled on it last week. I feel like I’ve gotten to “know” several of you.
    I feel the need to give my 2 cents on LaViolette. I’m a DV survivor. My ex is currently serving 6 yrs in CA prison for spousal rape, which I was able to catch on audiotape, due to the fact that he had also been threatening to kill me for months prior. 12yr marriage with several incidents of police documented DV, including one where I actually pressed charges and he was convicted in 1998.
    Why did I stay in 1998? Because my husband went to a men’s batterer’s anger management class…just like the one LaViolette developed. I have long said these classes do not change men, but actually gave people a false sense of “my husband is getting help, so I can give our marriage a chance” etc. I had literally filed for divorce the first time my husband hit me, yet withdrew due to the fact that I believed my husband was getting “help”, almost like AA or something. I view it now like a shield or cover for abusive men. These programs do more harm than good. Professionals will tell you that these men really do not change.
    Just in case anyone is interested in more about my case, it made national (even international) news in the last few years. I live in San Diego and was ordered by the Family Court Judge to pay my own convicted rapist spousal support, HIS legal fees, and my retirement accounts. I was so outraged by this, I went public in an effort to change the law so that no other woman would have to endure what i did. AB1522 passed in 2012 unanimously and is now the law of the state of CA.
    I have been on such shows as Nightline, Anderson Cooper, Inside Edition, I Survived, Fox News, Who the Bleep Did I Marry, and even had the pleasure of being on HLN with Vinnie Politan twice. He was great! And Dateline is currently doing a story on my case. So stay tuned to that. If you just Google my name, Crystal Harris, along with a word like “spousal” or something like that to differentiate me from Hugh Hefner’s wife of the same name, there are lots of news stories still online.
    My ex is a psychopath. I see SO many similarities between him and JA. Sorry for the long post!

    03/26/2013 at 3:15 am

    One last rant Just catchin’ up on HLN. Saw some more video of Det. Flores’ interrogation of The High Priestess of Skankdom. She kicked a DOG???? WTF?? She kicked her mother in April before she killed Travis…did I miss something??? Could I have been in a “fog” when this testiphony was spewed???

    I get that Juan could play all of “Herp’s” interrogation tapes, and on that alone, we should be able to convict her. But now, in addition to the horrors she did to Travis, she kicked a dog??? Are you kiddin’ me???? Can’t defend kickin’ her mother, cuz I’d like to kick her and “her twin sister too”…improvising a line from The Wizard of Oz.

    Is there any chance, we could give her lethal injection while sitting on the electric chair placed in a gas chamber monitored by a firing squad with a guillotine on stand-by in the wings???? Just sayin’…

    And I humbly digress for those of you against DP…if anyone was designed for the DP…it is Jodi Ann Arias!!!

    For any I may have offended, my sincere apologies. But “Off with her head I say”. Deferring to my British peeps here.

    Ok, I will sign off of my rant here. I look at my dogs and think “If someone kicked or hurt them I would go JA on them” but even I know I couldn’t go to that extent. My sincere feelings for the Alexander Family! We love you!

    And to Tanisha Sorenson – Girl, I love your perpetual scowl. I mean that respectfully cuz I know you want your shot at JA. I am your Wingman er, Wingwoman, and I got your back Girlfriend!!! {{{hugs to Tanisha}}}}}.

  89. 03/26/2013 at 3:50 am

    Crystal,

    I am so sorry. So very very sorry.

    No words can adequately express what I feel right now. Anger, outrage, disgust, bitterness, empathy, sorrow, remorse, frustration, exasperation rinse repeat and add.

    Oooooooo I’m so angered by the egregious injustice of it, angered because psychopathy is still so misunderstood and dismissed not just in the general population but also in law enforcement, by therapists, help groups, the media – all levels. It’s inexcusable.

    Oh Crystal! What’s the current status of it all? Im not familiar with your case, sorry. ( this will change, ),

    There is nothing I can say that you don’t already know. Nothing I can say that wouldn’t sound condescending. You don’t need to be told, you’ve lived it! OMG

    They are monsters and then the judge making you pay .??!!

    That’s total invalidation, oh the pain of that I can’t bear to think about, how did.do you get through it? I can’t begin to imagine. Oh Crystal I am so so sorry.

    The ignorance must stop!

    Yours humbly,

    Syntara

    I just re-read your history to familiarize myself with the details. Kudos, to you Lady, for being able to hang in there. You can be a great inspiration and I am so sorry for what you have had to endure. Thanks for joining us with your wisdom and personal travails. When the people here realize you have joined, they too, will likely do their research.

    Chrissie A, your dildo dido comment made me about piss myself!!!!!!!!!! Thank you because I really needed that. These past few days of court are draining the life blood out of me. I think JA has a look of fear/despair deep in her black eyes. She should be scared. I went to the Polynesian cultural center this weekend and past the big Mormon temple. Mormon missionaries influenced much of Hawaii. I thought I wonder if this was on Travis’s list to see before you die. Its sad. I kinda feel like we have all grown to know and love him!

    Thanks Tracey A. Appreciate the welcome.
    Where do things stand now?
    The best news is that the law passed!
    Judge Pollack is no longer the Judge on my case. I found out he was a former partner at a firm called Higgs Fletcher & Mack, and well, wouldn’t ya know, I happened to find my new attorney at that same law firm which created an instant conflict of interest and mandated that Judge Pollack recuse himself from my case.
    Prior to this, Judge Pollack ordered immediate reunification of my 2 boys with their father immediately upon his release from prison. Judge Pollack actually tried to force them to visit their dad in prison. Turned out that was logistically impossible. However, against the COURT appointed psychological evaluator’s recommendation, Judge Pollack ordered immediate reunification. This order is on Appeal. I have top-notch pro bono representation from Mintz Levin law firm as well as DVLEAP out of George Wash Univ. All briefs are filed, including several Amicus Briefs, and we are awaiting oral arguments.
    My husband is very dangerous. I take every measure I can to protect myself, including CCW permit, major home security w/ surveillance, etc.
    I am also going for a long shot in Family Court and trying to use my new law, AB1522, to say that the court order I am paying on every month (for the $47,000 legal fees) at a rate of $300 from my earnings, is now not a legal court order. It is no longer the public policy of the state of CA. We will have a hearing on that in April. I just can’t tell you how disgusting it feels to pay this man every month!!

And the “judge” actually ordered that the 5 year old daughter be allowed to visit her father in prison. WTF???? Why would you put a child through that trauma??? It’s better she not be allowed to see her father incarcerated, let alone see him period. What is this justice system we have, or not, in CA. I’m sick of it. It’s all about justice for the perpetrator rather than the survivor (I despise the term victim). Crystal…I think you have arrived at the right site. I’m soo sorry for what you are going through. You have arrived at the right site, Honey. You are welcome here and will find respite! I’m sure of it! {{{{Hugging you}}}}}

    Carried over……

    Ci Ci’s Circle :

    Trial watcher :
    Do U think JM should have said the remark to Doc about having feelings for Jodi?? Did he go overboard? I’m a little freaked about that. It’s starting to look like even Juan is sick of this b-llsh-t, >

    I am very impressed with Mr. Martinez’s performance, but in just this one instance, I think he did not serve himself well. I think he did go overboard in this one instance. Not only was he was advancing a theory the jury probably also subscribes to, but the manner in which he asked it came across as cheap, grandstanding, and just a bit desperate.

    Challenging a witness in that way seemed like an underhanded trick more expected out of that ridiculous excuse for a defendant/defense team/defense strategy. For example, Wilmott knew perfectly well any information about the contents of the alleged “suicide letters” and the sketch of what Jodi “wanted her tombstone to look like” had previously been expressly prohibited, but she slipped that in there on cross. Of course, Martinez objected immediately and the Judge instructed the jury to disregard the question and the answer, but it was still a cheap, underhanded stunt, which, with the exception of this one minor slip up today, I have never seen Martinez do.

    Ok … Next issue I’d love opinions on

    Why do you all think she left the camera? Seems we have got down to general agreement she expected the bleach, water and agitation of the cycles to destroy it… But still… Why not take it with her as she seems to have taken the gun and the knife? Why even take the time to delete them?

    To me the deletion comes part and parcel with the machine finishing the destruction… But why not just take it?

    I do have a thought on this but it’s very much conjecture only. Would love others’ viewpoints please.

    Anna :
    …chiming in (venting)…probably off-topic or repeating what someone else has already said as usual…but does anyone but me really care anymore…I’m starting to feel like Bridget Jones…and somebody else, but I can’t remember who…
    I feel like I could do a “Twelve Angry Men” rendition of why Dr. Doolittlegoodforclient’s words should be dismissed in total – he didn’t do the proper thing when the jodi said she felt ‘suicidal’. That’s serious to me because I know how people in that field are heavily trained in the severity of the claim. I mean, does the criteria for being put on suicide watch seriously depend on whether or not one has a fricken’ plan to carry it out? I’m a non-qualified, gal on the street (well, not literally) but common sense is a BFF of mine. And put your hats on now becuz I wonder how much the strain of being on suicide watch would have changed the jodi over these formative (i.e. formulating lies) years. Don’t think it would have added anything make-up could much cover up. I mean seriously, no singing contests? FU! How did she get out of that?? So Dr. Doo says he told her lawyers she mentioned suicide and they said, ‘hmmm, okay, thanks for the info doc…we’ll certainly let the authorities know.’ Right? Frankly, to spare us all the insanity as well as the taxpayers’ money, I wish she had formulated and carried out a plan. On the other hand, no. The only way I’m not wanting justice is if Travis is still alive and functioning as before. She’s admitted she ’killed’ him cuz the evidence was a bitch & a half (oh, crap!), but she’s too bold to believe she can’t get away with pre med ‘over-kill’ murder. I’m no queen, tho I do pretend to be sometimes, but off with her evil head! And let the defense “team” eat yummy types of cake. All day. And with a nice after dinner drink and dim lighting….ding dong, the witch is dead & I hope my career isn’t over like the dissed doctor.

    Anna I always enjoy when you chime in whether it is OT, to vent or just do your regular comments. You always add sometime interesting to what is going on in particular I truly enjoyed this vent because your frustration is visceral and your sarcastic wit just the thing to start off my morning!

    Thank you Anna 🙂 plus I totally agree with ya!

    Syntara :
    Ok … Next issue I’d love opinions on
    Why do you all think she left the camera? Seems we have got down to general agreement she expected the bleach, water and agitation of the cycles to destroy it… But still… Why not take it with her as she seems to have taken the gun and the knife? Why even take the time to delete them?
    To me the deletion comes part and parcel with the machine finishing the destruction… But why not just take it?
    I do have a thought on this but it’s very much conjecture only. Would love others’ viewpoints please.

    She didn’t take the camera because it belonged to Travis and he had just purchased it! I think he was excited about his new camera and had gotten a lot of input from JA as to what kind to buy plus had talked to his friends. It would be a glaring arrow pointed at JA, as if there already weren’t so many pointed, that she had been to his house. Remember, she had never actually seen that camera until she arrived, only looked at it online with and for TA. Why would someone go into his house, kill him and only take the camera when there were other valuables around? Wouldn’t make sense to take it.

    Besides, the gun and knife were the murder weapons which she brought with her and knew she had to get rid of,

    That’s my Canuck 2 cents worth which isn’t worth squat since they have stopped making pennies so ya get what ya pay for 😉 LOL

Remember, she was not familiar with this new camera and had already taken the steps to delete the photos and it landing in the washer could have been just pure luck. I think it is something that we are never gonna know the true answer to.

    CiCi’s Circle [at # 985, yesterday] and Syntara [at # 977, yesterday] — That last comment [posted on yesterday’s page at # 971] was not about being Board Certified (although definitely questioning the certification of the criminal lawyers on the defense team). It was part of a running theme [to # 479] about the manner to make a Complaint against a licensed member of the Bar. What a lot of people fail to realize is that they have to prepare a COMPLETE document upon filing of their Complaint. An incomplete document (that does not detail the manner of the Complaint) is the reason that most Complaints against lawyers seem to go nowhere and are eventually dismissed (without sanctions — no penalty meted out to the criminal lawyer who the Complainant might think should be disbarred, or in the least pay a fine or make restitution). The Complaints are usually not found to be complete, as they do not refer to the Rule violated or use enough of the definition for the Rule in order for the Grievance Committee to understand the Complaint.

    I thought that commenting on the Rules and posting these in a format that can be reviewed when preparing a Complaint could assist a person who might be interested in filing a Complaint with the Bar. For example, if the person were disturbed about Wurmi’s expert witness manipulating the evidence and what appeared to be the criminal act of tampering with the evidence, the Complainant could peruse through post # 971 and settle on using Rule 3.4(a) and/or Rule 8.4(c) of the Rules of Professional Conduct, or any other Rules thought suitable. The Complainant could also then refer [in the proper section of the Complaint] to the time and web address of the video that is located on You Tube to show where [one could view where] the manipulation of the evidence occurred or the tampering occurred. In this way, enough would have been presented, and the Bar would have to address the Complaint.

    To understand what it means to be “not board certified”, I have provided an explanation of what it means to be “Board Certified”. To me, this is very important because the case against Jodi Arias is a criminal case and one that calls for the death penalty to be exercised. That is why the lawyers are being paid such a handsome amount of money. Wurmi is probably getting more for this one case than he has ever made in one full year of his working life [according to his W-2 Forms]. The reason that this is a sticking point is because José Ángel Baez (who was the criminal lawyer for Casey Anthony) was not Board Certified, yet had been allowed to represent a person facing the ultimate punishment. The Florida Rule actually disallowed him from being Lead Trial Counsel because he had not been in practice for five years and had not handled the requisite number of criminal cases to be recognized as competent in the specialized practice of capital representation. This was in my reply to Essem in # 461, yesterday.

    To be Board Certified is to practice in a specialty field and have the right to advertise (the services you offer or yourself) as specialized or Board Certified. For instance, if a person was interested in buying property, that person would want the lawyer that assists in the purchase to be familiar with real estate, and probably be recognized as a Board Certified Real Estate Lawyer. If filing a Last Will and Testament, the lawyer to get is one Board Certified in probate matters. This area is recognized differently in the several States. In Florida, the lawyer would have the description of “Board Certified Wills, Trusts, and Estates Lawyer”. This would be prominently displayed on the web page [for Find a Lawyer] of the Bar, under the lawyer’s name. A person who wants to have a Trust established should not visit a lawyer that is not Board Certified or who is Board Certified in another specialty, like Board Certified Real Estate Lawyer. While the two specialties might appear to be similar, they are not.

    To apply to be a Board Certified lawyer, a member of the Bar must be in good standing for a minimum period of five years. An Applicant for certification must submit names and addresses of a prerequisite number of attorneys to vouch for the Applicant’s character, ethics, and reputation for professionalism. Different areas have different minimum periods of time. For real estate, a lawyer would need to have three years of minimum experience in that specific area before registering for a written examination. There are additional minimum standards for certification that are prescribed by the various Committees with oversight. Education, experience, and proficiency would be considered when granting Certificates in the area of certification. Only qualified applicants are awarded Certificates.

    Sometimes, a lawyer can receive certification without an examination. In those rare instances, a lawyer can be recognized in a certain area after practicing full time in a certain area of the Law for a period of time. For example, a lawyer who has set up a practice for over twenty years, of which what he has done is now recognized to be a specialized area, can apply for Board Certification. If he has had no Complaints registered against him and is very competent in his practice, he would not need to be examined. Thus, in this rare instance, it is possible that a lawyer could apply for certification, and not need to prove his mettle, and then every five years just reapply for his Certificate.

    A Certificate is as good as the person holding it. In other words, if the Bar should find the lawyer to have misrepresented his eligibility or who no longer meets the qualifications, that Certificate can be revoked. The Rules of Professional Conduct in every State spell out the manner that the lawyer can brag about the Certificate or advertise himself as Board Certified. A lawyer is never permitted to put himself out to be Board Certified or a Specialist in that area of Law unless it is so. Thus, if a lawyer puts Board Certified on a business card, as a listing in a directory, or on a letterhead and that is not the state of the lawyer’s true position, that lawyer WILL be sanctioned. If this was done deliberately with no reason to have believed any better, that lawyer would probably face a very severe penalty.

    CiCi’s Circle, continued = In the case that the State of Arizona has brought against Jodi Arias, she would want the lawyers on her defense team to not merely focus on Criminal Law but to be Board Certified in Criminal Law. A focus on Civil Law would not help her case. In addition, Jodi Arias would need a lawyer to be competent in the specialized practice of capital representation. Nurmi’s Focus/Specialty is registered as “Criminal Law” at http://www.azbar.org/FindaLawyer#&&vTxCy6lr/YHlA8wzopfrxeyCfLyTi9h5X9wPDKSt03aG372i4X2b/tZizlCoQLf1iXtVjvLg4ZT9tDFUgThW9AN3ww35RhdDi+A6K/pOmaqLZVRNQkOag0SFFgTx1i5y
    However, on the next page, after the caption for “Board Certified Specialization”, the answer is “None”, with only the “Area of Focus” listing “Criminal Law”, which can be seen at http://www.azbar.org/FindaLawyer#&&CBHhNOWi9rYSgaR41otMAaAK+MZ9ywVi9bOYGdmYizBkjZ9/l5QHyISM3VjTyVkEEC1AtGXzf3CsI0SNMKqjcHQhXU8q0mCRdYdHOYu5cJJQ17JSQ8C8c7prJ225eLKU
    On Willmott’s page, nothing is registered for Focus/Specialty for Jennifer L S Willmott. However, there is a listing for a Kenneth J Willmott for Focus/Specialty, which is “Business Law, Corporate Counseling, Probate & Trust Law” at http://www.azbar.org/FindaLawyer#&&98HO6FBn6XS+8PpiY8go2dXOT4KDyluviWLfRKYG2dRjd6nsJYLg8/o4pMxyu/lkz2Tultm+XIgfd1ZkkiqwsVL+3/3VODUcf/pjPZhT+gScisoC6UsjUQOzFVKUBTAI
    On the following page for Jennifer L S Willmott, after the caption for “Board Certified Specialization”, the answer is “None”, with the “Area of Focus” also listing “None”, which can be seen at http://www.azbar.org/FindaLawyer#&&E0aE92NBW3gVS3oqR5LtDKE6KEUefMcT5LLfu/vznfy+XUU84mYJqGjmo0ivc0paQOHMNvnkshQMRWyGRidv03ZlzHrKobpAIY12EGWzdCg299sBavUmw+3SmbmC9r2s

    Yeah that’s my alternative to how it got there to, semmed generally most went ith the first option when I put them in the other day. 😼

    Im ever so slightly on the deliberate cos when she took out the stuff she would have scooped it up with there would have been a clunk or even if not there were very few item in when it was found, she is definitely tall enough to have easily seen it in there.

    As you say, we will never know definitively, but i feel really feel, for Travis’ sake we should try to work it out best we can. He wants us to know what happened as part of his legacy. It sounds ridiculous but I’m really beginning to believe the no penetration actual sex.

    Something about that phone sex recording, while explicit fantasy in nature, had an underlying innocence in how he referred to certain parts of the anatomy. It seemed not to speak of inexperience to me. Her on the other hand…. No.. Clearly she spoke from experience and feigned lack of knowledge to ‘build him up’ so to speak.

    Anyone else notice any of that?

    Donchais – I have a bone to pick with you. I truly appreciated the link that ritanita sent and you posted showing JM at the clemency hearing. It was all new to me I truly adore this man. He has so much passion for what he does and for his victims but yet with all this hoopla with this JA case, she is still so humble. Seems like a genuinely nice man who loves his job however I digress.

    So I listened to the video and the description of that awful crime. Then I read some more about this felon who was thankfully executed. Throw that in with the photos and testiphony we have seen from this trial, hearing what the Lady in Court has and is still suffering, the different horrors that each of us has gone through in life, etc., etc., throw it all together and I couldn’t get to sleep AT ALL!!! So I turned on the tv and watched Hawaii Five-0 with even more gruesome crimes. Followed that with Erin Burnett on CNN and North Korea. By the time I got through all that, I was up for the night courtesy of the hell we humans can inflict on each other all mixed up in my thoroughly simmered brain stew!!! 😦

    Couldn’t sleep, couldn’t concentrate to read, and couldn’t shut my brain off. It was a hell of a night as I pondered the evil that surrounds us and your quote “sometimes, there are monsters walking amongst us”. Very true words from a very astute lady! It’s a very dangerous world we live in and who can you really trust. Most women are killed by their partners or ex-hubby’s, parents killing kids and vice versa. Throw in the high death rate of pregnant women by their husbands along with all the random crime that goes on and the so called professionals in various fields trying to turn the criminals into victims and it is so easy to forget the good that surrounds us.

    So ya see, it all started with the link to the clemency trial so I am going to pull a JA/Robert Towery/most felon move, and place the blame on someone else (but only long enough so that I can hopefully have a nap)

    My bad night makes me so aware of what the pure hell the Alexander family has and is going through each and every night as are so many others affected by truly horrific acts. It also reiterates what a class act and the dignity that family has shown throughout all of this.

    Gee thanks donchais, now that I have put the blame on you, I truly feel better. Hope ya got broad shoulders. You truly do provide a vast array of public services to us!!! 🙂

    Syntara [at # 977] — Sorry about that. I was typing as though speaking. That is what we call Willmott in this house. There is no other description for her (other than doppelganger). It is from the movements of one to the other. I have to give my son the credit for naming that though (and it was definitely the criminal lawyer, and not Jodi Arias that was given that moniker).

    Syntara — I have worked on an explanation of the manner of proper assignment (of lawyers and experts) and decided [it was too dry and] to add more information about the Casey Anthony case [because it can fit nicely into the commentary]. This way, you will know exactly what your fellow bloggers mean when the parties to that case are mentioned. It is felt [?rightly or wrongly?] that the accused in the Casey Anthony case could never be identical to the accused in the Jodi Arias case because she could not be deemed a psychopath, but she sure does seem to fit the definition for sociopath. Some books seem to portray a sociopath as having a window for a small percentage, where a change can be initiated (and if guided properly can prevent future damage to the human population, although they would still be considered a problem for various reasons depending on the character). You would know much more about the matter. Anyway, this room is so lucky to have you to help all of us understand the makings of these characters. Just don’t wear yourself out, and get your rest when you feel the need.

    btw — I was trying to figure out the case this one is most like and the most likely psychopath to whom Jodi Arias could be compared. I believe that she could have been a serial killer like Ted Bundy, if she had not been caught so early in her undertaking, since she seems to fit his pattern somehow. In the same vein, the case that resembles this one is that which the State of California brought against Charles Rathbun (for the rape and murder of Linda Sobek). If you would like, I could leave a brief history of the case on this blog, if donchais does not mind. If she looked into the case, she would probably agree that a description of the case can be posted here. It is so eerily similar, it will send chills up your spine. Whether it is posted or not, remember the name, Charles Rathbun. Since Jodi Arias was stopped early on, she did not have the opportunity to enter a state of transmutation as did Ted Bundy. Thus, the other is the more fitting personality.

    Hi, I’ve been reading this site since I stumbled on it last week. I feel like I’ve gotten to “know” several of you.

    \Welcome Crystal. You have come to the right place and an extremely safe place. I am truly sorry for all you are going through and Syn is right, others will read up on your case.

    If you are obsessed with this case then you’ll fit right in. We are also really kinda major league fans of Juan Martinez.

    An added bonus, our host donchais, graciously allows our obsessions, rants, frustrations and anger! Another bonus that donchais provides free of charge is that on days when there isn’t trial scheduled, she keeps us off the streets and out of trouble. Truly a public service in itself, although a great deal of online shopping does occur!

    The highlight though is her daily report on the trial proceeding complete with hilarious commentary!!! Enjoy!

    It really is a great group of diverse people from around the world and everyone is so supportive of each other. You will definitely get support here for your ongoing, seemingly endless personal and legal issues. This is truly a place where the victim ALWAYS comes first and is never forgotten, thanks to the tireless advocacy for victims by our host donchais!

    So welcome with open arms from all of us!!! 🙂 Here is your complimentary foil hat! sending hugs {{{{{ }}}}}

    Crystal Harris :
    Hi, I’ve been reading this site since I stumbled on it last week. I feel like I’ve gotten to “know” several of you.
    I feel the need to give my 2 cents on LaViolette. I’m a DV survivor. My ex is currently serving 6 yrs in CA prison for spousal rape, which I was able to catch on audiotape, due to the fact that he had also been threatening to kill me for months prior. 12yr marriage with several incidents of police documented DV, including one where I actually pressed charges and he was convicted in 1998.
    Why did I stay in 1998? Because my husband went to a men’s batterer’s anger management class…just like the one LaViolette developed. I have long said these classes do not change men, but actually gave people a false sense of “my husband is getting help, so I can give our marriage a chance” etc. I had literally filed for divorce the first time my husband hit me, yet withdrew due to the fact that I believed my husband was getting “help”, almost like AA or something. I view it now like a shield or cover for abusive men. These programs do more harm than good. Professionals will tell you that these men really do not change.
    Just in case anyone is interested in more about my case, it made national (even international) news in the last few years. I live in San Diego and was ordered by the Family Court Judge to pay my own convicted rapist spousal support, HIS legal fees, and my retirement accounts. I was so outraged by this, I went public in an effort to change the law so that no other woman would have to endure what i did. AB1522 passed in 2012 unanimously and is now the law of the state of CA.
    I have been on such shows as Nightline, Anderson Cooper, Inside Edition, I Survived, Fox News, Who the Bleep Did I Marry, and even had the pleasure of being on HLN with Vinnie Politan twice. He was great! And Dateline is currently doing a story on my case. So stay tuned to that. If you just Google my name, Crystal Harris, along with a word like “spousal” or something like that to differentiate me from Hugh Hefner’s wife of the same name, there are lots of news stories still online.
    My ex is a psychopath. I see SO many similarities between him and JA. Sorry for the long post!

    I’ve certainly been aware of your case for a while, now. I’m a big fan of DiscoveryID and saw your show. I also read about it in the media. Awful what you had to go through. I do hope all is well with you know.

    In case you or any readers aren’t aware of this, LaViolette is not permitted to discuss any abuse by Travis. She can only discuss Jodi. I am assuming that the decision came based on hearsay testimony by The Liar. So, it is not up for discussion by this expert. We may have heard from The Liar herself, but it’s off-limits in this testimony. That could really curtail the length of her testimony.

    I also heard Beth Karas say that she read the transcript of the hearing in which LaViolette testified by phone. Apparently, Martinez did a good shredding job on her. Based on her comment about having a practice when she gets back to California, she knows what’s in store for her.

Twitter is easy to have open while I work and listen to the trial, I can throw out the odd comments when I need to! unfortunately with so many posts now this site takes a while to load up for me and then I’m onto the next thing lol.

    Since most of you followed the capital murder case of the State of Florida versus Casey Marie Anthony, and probably viewed a lot of the evidence through Internet access [that the Jurors did not see] you already know [without going to any other site to look up any facts of the case] that the story Jose Baez put together was bogus. You already know that the story of childhood sexual abuse was a lie. And, you know that the story about George Anthony demanding his daughter cover-up the death of his granddaughter was also a lie. However, the Jury did not know this. And, the Jury was instructed to use their common sense to put the facts of the case in order, which they did. From what had been mistakenly gathered, the members of the Jury would be able to understand that Casey Anthony was under the control of her father, George Anthony, because he fit into the category of a person who could have molested his daughter.

    Jose Baez proved that George Anthony did not fess up to extra-marital affairs (when he put on the stand a woman that was truly unbelievable but had to be taken at face value because the Assistant State Attorney (“ASA”) did not properly discredit her testimony). The arrogance and insolence of the ASA really had an impact on the Jury together with the lack of follow-up (once a confusing issue was before the Jury, where there is no Right, as there is in the State of Arizona to ask questions about the matter that is so perplexing). This failed to show through on the TV screen, but that was the feeling in the Florida Courtroom. Moreover, the ASA was so sure that the Jury would not believe George Anthony was a child molester, and therefore involved in the disposal of his granddaughter’s corpse, that he did very little to sway the Jury to a belief that George Anthony was just another victim of the lies of Casey Anthony — as well as the victim of the vicious portrayal and falsehoods by the criminal lawyers on the defense team of Casey Anthony.

    This is something that the prosecutor in the case of the State of Arizona versus Jodi Ann Arias has to tackle. He should not have to, but he does have to eventually address the white elephant in the room. The reason is that the criminal lawyer in this Arizona case is using the same sleazy tactic as was used in the Florida case. Jodi Arias’ criminal lawyer is trying to portray Mr. Alexander as a pedophile because that accusation goes hand-in-hand when making the accusation that he had committed acts of dating violence against Jodi Arias. Admittedly, it is a much harder stretch for the criminal lawyer in the Jodi Arias case than it was for the criminal lawyer in the Casey Anthony case. But, it is the only shot he has to get one Juror to disagree with that first-degree murder charge. You see, the criminal lawyer does not have the intent to convince a Juror that Mr. Alexander is a pedophile because of any belief he could hold that Mr. Alexander is thought to be a pedophile. That would not be the case at all (although this criminal lawyer would never admit to that charge, due to the fact that he would probably be disbarred, since the Arizona Bar is not as wishy-washy as the Florida Bar).

    The criminal lawyer would merely want [at least] one member of the Jury to believe that Mr. Alexander is a pedophile to cast doubt on Mr. Alexander’s reputation (and good name) and get the Juror to go beyond that thought, in order to think of Mr. Alexander as an abuser of Jodi Arias. If the criminal lawyer could make one Juror believe that Mr. Alexander is a pedophile whereupon he would have therefore physically abused Jodi Arias (which would make the Juror not cast a vote for her guilt, in a murder that might be thought was self-defense because all the markers are there [that will be addressed by an expert witness for the defense]), he could get a mistrial. There is no way that this criminal lawyer ever wanted to prove Jodi Arias was innocent or fight the charge the prosecutor has brought — because he has always known she was guilty as sin. He is basically seeking a mistrial by any means possible, no matter how much of a sleazeball he has to be in his crusade to win at all costs.

    This should not be the case. The American system of jurisprudence is supposed to be the best [period], not the best that money can buy or any other ridiculous basis. Remember that a lawyer has to exercise due diligence. A lawyer can not say after the fact that he did not understand the case or did not research the case, and use that as the reason he suborned perjury or assisted in misprision of a felony. The Laws in the State of Florida and the State of Arizona are not the same, but they are similar. So, too, are the Rules of Court for these distinct jurisdictions. Both States recognize the lawyer as an Officer of the Court. Besides being an Officer of the Court, the lawyer must realize that he must be obedient to the Rules of Professional Conduct of the Rules regulating the members of a unified Bar. It is the official duty of these Officers of the Court to properly perform their obligations and responsibilities, honestly and in a straightforward fashion. When permitting a person to testify untruthfully, this Officer is not just standing by idly. This Officer is in control of the situation in the Court. After all, the criminal lawyer, as an Officer of the Court, must prepare his witnesses by instructing his witnesses what is to be expected of them — and it is not to lie with impunity. So, a criminal lawyer will know what his expert witnesses will testify to. It isn’t rocket science. The lawyer does not have to do the research in the field that is to be presented. The lawyer just makes sure that the expert will testify according to the Rules and the evidence in the case, according to the profession requested to testify.

    The manipulation of the facts and the evidence should not happen. The people should be well aware of the way that the case was lost in the State of Florida, in allowing a guilty woman to get away scot-free after she was responsible for the death of her young daughter, an innocent toddler. The people should not allow this to happen again — no matter what State it is. These guilty parties walk our streets and take advantage of our freedoms, and take liberties in a world, conniving of another manner to do whatever evil is in their heart. And, there is evil in their heart. Just look at the facts of the cases. These heartless women have killed and feel nothing about what they have done to their victim or to any of the others left behind. In the Jodi Arias case, she actually confessed to the slaughter of Travis Alexander in his own home. She made this declaration under Oath in this case at the very beginning of her Trial testimony. Later, while the prosecutor questioned her, she admitted that she was the one who stabbed him, slashed him, and shot him. There should be no saving Grace for this wicked demon seed. Put her on death row where she will not have any enjoyment as a malignant narcissist in the prison yards with convicts who will admire her.

    The only thing that would keep her off death row is if the criminal lawyer could know how to successfully use the same tactic as the criminal lawyer in the Casey Anthony case. Many of you have said that the criminal lawyer, Wurmi, is much smarmier and a bigger slimeball than Jose Baez. That does not make him smarter — especially since he has a pinch of Jodiitis. If there is enough thought put into the way Jodi Arias ended up testifying at length on the witness stand, it is because of the action of the criminal lawyer in his belief in his intelligence and superiority to the prosecutor. Narcissism runs amok in the Courtroom. Not much has been heard from the doppelganger [to Jodi Arias, Willnot], but together Wurmi and the doppelganger could have a complete brain to try to outwit the prosecutor. Moreover, all they would have to do is follow the playbook that has already been proven by Jose Baez. So, the prosecutor can not yet rest on his laurels.

    An expert witness is going to try to confuse the Jurors, not discredit the prosecutor’s theory. The defense knows that to overthrow the prosecutor’s case is an impossibility. The defense is not going for the gold or even the silver. Bronze will still put them in the winner’s circle. Anyway they can; any method they can use. The defense is going to use the expert witness to complicate the issue of dating violence [which is being treated as domestic violence]. Yet, the expert witness has to testify truthfully. Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander were not in a dating relationship when she drove more than one thousand miles to his residence to slaughter him. She was not invited, as his e-mail from the previous week showed. He called her a sociopath and threatened to tell her family if she did not stop playing her crazy games. Mr. Alexander was serious that he no longer wanted to see her. There is nothing to show that he invited her to his home. Every action that Mr. Alexander took showed the dating relationship was over. Jodi Arias has said multiple times on the stand that they were not girlfriend/boyfriend. Since the two of them never lived together, there can be no finding of a domestic relationship. The only other way that domestic violence becomes an issue is if they were dating. However, they were not dating if she had not talked to him to get permission or an invite from him when she KNEW that she would have to drive over one thousand miles to his residence in the middle of the morning. Telling former boyfriends (like Darryl Brewer and Matt McCartney), the day before her kill, that she was driving to visit another former boyfriend is not evidence that Mr. Alexander ever consented to a visit by Jodi Arias.

    If this expert witness testifies in a different fashion than THE TRUTH THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, she should be stripped of her license. The Curriculum Vitae of Alyce Dunn LaViolette, M.S., documents (that in her professional background) she has taught spousal/partner abuse for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, from 2001 [to the present] as an Adjunct Lecturer at California State University at Fullerton. This is a prominent display of the work of which she currently is involved. A conference that was attended, listed on page 12 [of 20 of the Curriculum Vitae] was the National Organization of Men Against Sexism – Court Mediator’s Conference in Newport Beach, California. So, she has worked with males to prepare them for a Court setting. If she is biased towards Jodi Arias and willing to lie for her just because she is a female, this expert witness should be stripped of any honor or award given her. Then again, [on page 19 of her Curriculum Vitae] one of the prominent titles listed under the caption Publications, was that, in 1998, she authored “The Battered Husband Syndrome and Other Myths” for the Women’s Study Encyclopedia. She has also credited the CABIP Connection, in 2004, with “Battering is Not an Even Playing Field”. In 1984, she co-authored a paper on “The Male Abuser” that was presented to the National Conference for Criminology. While it is true that these publications are not recent, if this woman who advertises herself as an expert holds a prejudice against males, she should not be recognized by any Court of Law [that frowns on prejudice, once exposed].

    Even though the victim is deceased, the victim would still have Rights because this purported expert is to testify on his acts and actions while alive. It is a violation of a person’s constitutional Right to be treated as an inferior based on that person’s gender. This Law of equality has been enshrined in the State Constitutions and Section One of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Furthermore, this specific Right has other protections and guarantees that are preserved in certain of the State Statute Books and certain of the Titles of the federal Civil Laws. Mr. Alexander should not be punished by a man-hater and treated as though he were the one who was sexist. Mr. Alexander did not practice discrimination, and he never was aroused by acts of intimidation against women that certain sections of the book of Ms. LaViolette seem to imply are a part and parcel of the life of the abusive personality of a male. Certainly, it is not and has not been the case that Mr. Alexander was the abusive personality, as it was and has always been Jodi Arias who possessed the abusive and abuser’s personality.

    ritanita :
    LaViolette is not permitted to discuss any abuse by Travis. She can only discuss Jodi. I am assuming that the decision came based on hearsay testimony by The Liar. So, it is not up for discussion by this expert. We may have heard from The Liar herself, but it’s off-limits in this testimony. That could really curtail the length of her testimony.

    Thanks ritanita. I am so glad to hear this because TA has been trashed enough in this case without a single bit of evidence to back it up.

    I had also read somewhere that she and JM have crossed paths before and it hasn’t been pretty to say the least. She is truly a sellout and has zero credibility to me and is doing a true disservice to actual battered/abused women and men!!! She is just another hack for sale!

    I missed most of the trial yesterday, so the recap was AWESOME, Donchais. Thank you! Just saw this headline: “Bombshell: Jodi Arias beat her Mother”. WTH???! And Samuels ADMITTED knowing this? ANd he had the NERVE to keep calling her a “pacifist” over and over again to the jury, just because of the OBVIOUS B.S.-ridden journals she kept?? Are you kidding me??! http://www.hlntv.com/article/2013/03/25/live-blog-jury-fatigue-setting
    Prosecutor Juan Martinez dropped a bombshell in court Monday, claiming that Jodi Arias had a history of beating her mother. It is unclear where he got the information from since neither the defense team nor the prosecution have hinted at the incidents before.

    Forensic psychologist Richard Samuels is on the stand testifying about how he diagnosed Arias with post-traumatic stress disorder for allegedly killing her ex-boyfriend in self-defense. One symptom of PTSD Samuels said he observed in Arias was her bouts of irritability and anger.

    Martinez pointed out Arias had bouts of anger before the alleged trauma of killing Alexander on June 4, 2008.

    “When she was a teenager, isn’t it true that the defendant had such anger toward her mother Sandy, that she treated her like crap,” said Martinez.

    “Yes,” said Samuels.

    “And isn’t it true that they argued all the time, right?” asked Martinez.

    “Yes,” said Samuels.

    “And isn’t it true that during that time, the defendant hit Sandy for no reason?” asked Martinez.

    “Yes,” said Samuels.

    “And this was all before this June 4, 2008 incident?” asked Martinez.

    “But it’s irrelevant for the diagnosis,” said Samuels.

    “Am I asking you that?” asked Martinez.

    Martinez also referenced another incident when Arias allegedly became physically violent with her mother.

    “Isn’t it true that, at some point, one of the times that they were together, they were sitting down for dinner or something and isn’t it true that the defendant got mad and kicked Sandy for no reason?”

    “I read that, yes,” said Samuels.

    “For no reason, right?” asked Martinez.

    “That’s what it says, yes,” said Samuels.

    Ritanita @ Crystal It is a shame that you still have to live in fear of him to the point of having to be constantly vigilant, looking behind you all the time

    That is the insidious nature of these people. They perpetrate extreme psychological and emotional abuse and the worst part of it, you can’t go to someone and say… Look at my abuse like you can if it were physical brusing or scarring.

    So while many are violent along with the psychological torture, there are also maybe more who only operate in the hidden domain of mind game abuse.

    In many ways it is the psychological and emotional abuse that us harder not only to break from but also to prove. Because of that, it’s also harder for the reciever to firstly recognise then come to terms with and finally move on from. It’s so much harder to explain what it feels like and how it works than pointing to bruising and saying ” this is what he/she did”

    By no means am I trivialising physical abuse, not at all. I am just saying for many many reasons the psychological and emotional trauma is far more insidious.

    If you are obsessed with this case then you’ll fit right in. We are also really kinda major league fans of Juan Martinez.

    An added bonus, our host donchais, graciously allows our obsessions, rants, frustrations and anger! Another bonus that donchais provides free of charge is that on days when there isn’t trial scheduled, she keeps us off the streets and out of trouble. Truly a public service in itself, although a great deal of online shopping does occur! 😉

    The highlight though is her daily report on the trial proceeding complete with hilarious commentary!!! Enjoy!

    It really is a great group of diverse people from around the world and everyone is so supportive of each other. This is truly a place where the victim ALWAYS comes first and is never forgotten, thanks to the tireless advocacy for victims by our host donchais!

    I also heard Beth Karas say that she read the transcript of the hearing in which LaViolette testified by phone. Apparently, Martinez did a good shredding job on her. Based on her comment about having a practice when she gets back to California, she knows what’s in store for her.

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I’ll wear the foil hat with proudly and with pleasure. Yes, I am obsessed with this case and the injustice done to Travis. My twin sister is afraid that my blood pressure is going to spike because I get so immersed in the trial and all of the dishonesty and trickery going on. Another thing that puzzles me is the inconsistency with the scoring of the test….15, 16 and 17 scored three times. If the scores were insignificant, why score or rescore. Dr. Bumbles will be luckly if he can flip hamburgers someplace. Can you imagine what it must have been like to go home and face his family….oh my, my bad, wish I could have been a fly on the wall. He’s gonna get a beating! BTW, I’ve been in therpy before and have seen many books in the doctors offices and have commented on them and they ALWAYS told me that I could purchase them on my own. What a crock about Dr. Bumbles mailing ja a copy. It is just another example of how inept he really is. I really feel ja lured him into her web of deceit along with the defense team.

    Or at least he could have pointed out that since Samuels didn’t know her before the killing he doesn’t have anything to compare her affect to. He could have asked, “Isn’t it possible that she may have presented a flat affect before June 4, 2008?”

    md6953 .15, 16 and 17 scored three times. If the scores were insignificant, why score or rescore.

    zegactly those numbers mean something they are scaled… Im not sure of the precise relevance on that particular test but you can bet it wasn’t accidental. He was certainly playing around with them for a reason, besides so he could bill his palm springs trip to the state.

    Re gift of a book. Years and years and eons ago I was given the opportunity to sit for testing for vocational guidance reasons. The Psychologist ( who was a university professor ) was so impressed with a certain score of mine he gave me a text book on the introduction to psychology from his own private library in his house. It is what got be started in the behaviour science field. It was NOT therapy based it was purely a educational. I still have it somewhere. Id that had not happened to me I doubt I’d be in this forum.

    I’ve been in therpy before and have seen many books in the doctors offices and have commented on them and they ALWAYS told me that I could purchase them on my own. What a crock about Dr. Bumbles mailing ja a copy. It is just another example of how inept he really is. I really feel ja lured him into her web of deceit along with the defense team.

    That’s the difference. I see no problem with a therapist lending you a book or telling you about a book to read but Dr. Quack totally crossed the line because he was supposed to be doing an independent evaluation, not therapy. Instead not only it he cross the line, he actually became her advocate during most of his cross examination. I see retirement in his very very near future!

    He is just another person that JA used her sexual voodoo on and used for her own purposes and now will be discarded as was shown when he was through yesterday and she wouldn’t even acknowledge him!!!

    He may have lost his reputation and any credibility he might have had but at least he walked out alive.

    MMD you’re funny! Although I’m sorry you had trouble sleeping. That video about Towery was disturbing but for me what it really highlighted was JM’s focus and passion for the victim in the case. The whole time the killer stared at JM with such hatred almost daring him to look at him, but Marrinez never made eye contact with him. Although I may be ambivalent about the DP at times (although my ambivalence melts a little every time I see JA’s smug expression in court) Juan was so masterful at decimating every argument the defense made and did it in such a calm manner. I also couldn’t believe how many similarities there are to this case. It kind of made me laugh thinking of how many times Juan must have had to deal with the same bs in defense cases. Claims of PTSD are old hat to him. The other thing I thought about was how brave JM is considering that he deals with hardened criminals and murderers. I hope he has extra security at his residence!

    Crystal Harris: Too bad you can’t bring that into court in this case to let ppl know what Ms Violet is saying is crap

    by her specialties I think Juan Baby’s psychologist has been hand picked to do that. I wouldn’t worry about it too much just yet her specialties are so pointedly towards Dr Dodgy’s crap I’m sure the two are going to overlap.

    The biggest problem the defense has at the moment is that Dr Dodgy, in his bumbling ramblings, very likely inadvertently sabotaged this witness anyhow. Which is pretty funny in itself.

    She knows it I think, hence the “if I have a practice when I get back” reference

    Lisa – I just HOPE he has security. For some reason, I can see him saying no. He is just a very humble man who I think in his mind feels like it’s no big deal, he’s just doing his job.

    I did hear that Wurmi and Gidget have to be escorted from court through a private entrance with guards and JM walks out the front door by himself.

    Interesting. Also found other hearings to view. It seems in every one of them the defendant claims to have PTSD, so I clearly see why our man, Juan, is so well versed in the area.

    Any other videos or information on past cases that our man Juan is in would be very welcome. Thank you for all you do!!

    Crystal Harris :
    Hi, I’ve been reading this site since I stumbled on it last week. I feel like I’ve gotten to “know” several of you.
    I feel the need to give my 2 cents on LaViolette. I’m a DV survivor. My ex is currently serving 6 yrs in CA prison for spousal rape, which I was able to catch on audiotape, due to the fact that he had also been threatening to kill me for months prior. 12yr marriage with several incidents of police documented DV, including one where I actually pressed charges and he was convicted in 1998.
    Why did I stay in 1998? Because my husband went to a men’s batterer’s anger management class…just like the one LaViolette developed. I have long said these classes do not change men, but actually gave people a false sense of “my husband is getting help, so I can give our marriage a chance” etc. I had literally filed for divorce the first time my husband hit me, yet withdrew due to the fact that I believed my husband was getting “help”, almost like AA or something. I view it now like a shield or cover for abusive men. These programs do more harm than good. Professionals will tell you that these men really do not change.
    Just in case anyone is interested in more about my case, it made national (even international) news in the last few years. I live in San Diego and was ordered by the Family Court Judge to pay my own convicted rapist spousal support, HIS legal fees, and my retirement accounts. I was so outraged by this, I went public in an effort to change the law so that no other woman would have to endure what i did. AB1522 passed in 2012 unanimously and is now the law of the state of CA.
    I have been on such shows as Nightline, Anderson Cooper, Inside Edition, I Survived, Fox News, Who the Bleep Did I Marry, and even had the pleasure of being on HLN with Vinnie Politan twice. He was great! And Dateline is currently doing a story on my case. So stay tuned to that. If you just Google my name, Crystal Harris, along with a word like “spousal” or something like that to differentiate me from Hugh Hefner’s wife of the same name, there are lots of news stories still online.
    My ex is a psychopath. I see SO many similarities between him and JA. Sorry for the long post!

    Welcome Crystal, so sorry that you endured the abuse only to be abused again by the system. Words cannot express my admiration of your strength by speaking out and getting the law changed in this regard, which is no easy feat! Many that you will probably never know will be grateful to you because of this. I too was in a very violent relationship and I am aware of the so called “help” that never changes the abuser, we want to believe they will change, hence the reason so many stay with the hopes that the good will eventually outweigh the bad. I was luckier than most as I literally escaped, but it meant me relocating to another state. This was many years ago, but I had literally lived with the shadow of him finding out where I was. Last year by mere fluke I found out that he had died 12 years ago, it was like a huge weight had been lifted – all those years of shadowed fear gone in an instant! This blog is the first place that I ever wrote about it, (but I am sure the fact of him being deceased has also opened me up to it ) I’m so glad that you have joined the blog and I look forward to your input regarding LaViolette.

    You and I have had numerous discussions about the DP and funnily enough when I started reading about Towery’s execution, even though the crime was heinous, it still made me feel queasy. It just didn’t sit right but JA – so want her to get the DP!!!

    I guess I haven’t gone completely over to the dark side when just reading about executions bother me as they always have. Although I must admit seeing Saddam Hussein being hung didn’t bother me!

  178. 03/26/2013 at 11:30 am

    LisaM Does anyone have the answer to this? Could Martinez have asked Samuels, “Couldn’t this flat affect you describe Miss Arias as having also pertain to a personality disorder such as psychopathy?”

    This is just my stab in the dark on this because I have no legal background at all so I could be way off base. … but I’m thinking this way:

    JM is not a psychologist so the defense could object as yet the whole personality disorder topic has only been raised by some nebulas allusion to it Dr Dodgy made in a reference to an as yet unnamed personality disorder.

    JM is likely waiting for his witness, who is versed in all manners of cluster B personality disorder (not psychopathy sadly but it’s close relative ASPD (anti-social commonly called sociopathy).

    Hi all. So glad to have this Forum to turn to and all of you. (Driving poor husband insane with my obsession with this trial )
    I’m so angered by Jodi’s smiling and smirking!!! I can’t stand the way she stands at attention with full eye contact each time the jury comes in or out. She is staring at them trying to look all innocent.
    What on earth is she whispering with her attorney and who is she looking at in the jury?

    Also, do u think the juror who asked about the book was trying to stick up for Samuels? Was she/he trying to point out that the book was no big deal? I hope not.

    I’ll be checking back when I return in a few hours. Ty all!

  182. 03/26/2013 at 11:42 am

    I find it insulting that the diagnosis of PTSD is (apparently) so widely being used like this. Every psychologist who attest to this needs to loose their licence too stop it happening. This is NOT why the test for PTSD came into being. It is gross misconduct and deliberate misleading to jurors who are unfamiliar with it.

    I felt a little queasy too about Towerys execution when I read his letters to his attorneys. The thing is though I do think he was a sociopath . He may very well have suffered severe abuse during his childhood but that could have been what made him that way. JM may also have protected an inmate from the fate that Towerys victim suffered: strangulation. So that’s a possibility. But yeah it’s a thorny issue although the visceral response I have towards JA is no different than yours. It’s hard to maintain objectivity when you see her sitting there all smug and whispering to her attorney. I really do think she’s a full blown psychopath.

    No. This whole case is the biggest crock. They have the depraved killer in jail. He acted alone and the Italians bungled the whole thing, even giving him a lesser sentence for cooperating with them. They just can’t let it go now. It’s disgusting, especially for the victim’s family. The man behind bars ( Rudy Guede?) is laughing. It’s the biggest miscarriage of justice that he’ll be out of jail someday because of the Italian prosecutors zeal to go after a sordid and stupid sex gone wrong theory. Now all the attention is on Amanda and Raffaele and none on the real killer. It really is unconscionable and an unbelievable miscarriage of justice.

Remember, she was not familiar with this new camera and had already taken the steps to delete the photos and it landing in the washer could have been just pure luck. I think it is something that we are never gonna know the true answer to.

    2₵ from me: I think she knew the camera went in the wash because during the
    interrogation when Flores said they had pictures she said “pictures??, really?” in a manner
    that said she thought they would be ruined and unable to find.
    Too bad for her she didn’t toss the camera off into the desert.

    OK. I just watched the new snippets of the interrogation where she tells Detective Flores about kicking the dog. She kicked her own dog and then said that the dog went away and never came back.
    You know what??
    I think it’s highly likely that she didn’t just kick the poor dog.
    Sadly, dogs tend to stick around their human companions, even when they are physically harmed by them, because they still seek to please the companion–and, unlike humans, do not hold grudges.
    OK–perhaps someone else took the dog in and cared for it. As an animal rights activist, I hope so, because I’ll bet that was not the only time that Jodi intentionally harmed him/took her anger out on him.

    But onto the other possibility…
    If Jodi killed the family dog when she was in her youth, it is a serious sign of being a sociopath or psychopath.(Serial killers are notorious for harming animals during their childhoods.)

    And how bizarre that she is fake-crying to the detective about how she needs to apologize to the dog??? Huh??? Does she not realize a) the dog is dead, even if SHE didn’t kill it, because dogs only live so long, and b)apologizing to the dog is meaningless to the dog!

    Love how Det. Flores brings her back on point and tells her that she needs to apologize to TRAVIS.

    The more of the interrogation tape that gets revealed, the more disturbing she becomes. Not that she wasn’t disturbing enough via what she did to Travis, mind you. But it goes much deeper than that. Yes, she was jealous that he was into Mimi; yes, she was angry and jealous that he was taking Mimi to Cancun. Yes, she was angry with him for finally terminating the relationship, which immediately preceeded the theft of her grandfather’s gun. But the fact is that Jodi is–and apparently always has been–a ticking time bomb, just waiting for the right location to explode in violence. In other words, if it hadn’t been Travis Alexander, it would have been someone else.

    Here is a link to the new snippets if anyone didn’t see it yet: http://stoopidhousewives.com/2013/03/26/jodi-arias-trial-samuels-done-new-witness-alyce-laviolette/

And many congratulations on getting such an important law passed. Way to go, girl! I would melt under the pressure I think, so I have a lot of respect just from what you’ve posted here.
    You’ve found a great place to hang out here. There are lots of very knowledgeable and qualified people who post tons of interesting stuff. I’m not one of them. 🙂 But you’ll see my rants here every now and then so sorry in advance. Kinda tend to let it all hang out here (well, not ALL of it….Syntara knows too much about me already so I have to be very careful from now on…teehee). For me, I appreciate the humor here more than anything because that’s what I use to get through difficult situations. The first donchais post I read had me LMAO and from then I was hooked. Anyway, it’s all done in support of Travis and his family. And of course the Mr. Juanfantastic! [btw, is he married, do we know? He doesn’t wear a ring.]
    Thank you MMD for your kind comments. You do know you’re encouraging me, right? Well, I wasn’t going anywhere anyway. No way baby!
    How long will it be until we get to watch JM destroy whatshername (I couldn’t listen to the zzzz first part)? I need to get to the cross like yesterday. No, more like last week, or the week before that…..ahhh. Cheers all!

    Oh, just read WhereIsSHE’s line, “You know what??

    Can someone explain why all objections were addressed as a bench sidebar yesterday (Monday)? Very early in the day, Wilmott said something about requesting this format, but I didn’t catch it. The amount of time wasted in sidebars was ridiculous, and it was patently unfair to the prosecution’s pacing. I think that is why Mr. Martinez finally “lost it” for the first and only time, but who could blame him? I wish we could have seen the juror’s faces when he yelled at Samuels.

    Syntara (or others) — it is my understanding that most male psychopathic killers begin killing between the ages of 25-35. Does this apply to females, also? Do you think Jodi fits this profile generalization, that she has been “on the edge and building” for a long time, or do you think she was just so obsessed with Travis this was a one time event?

    Do you think her age had anything to do with this crime? Do you think she has the potential to turn into a Ted Bundy or BTK who murdered at random, or would she murder only individuals she felt had personally slighted her?

    Do you think that if she couldn’t have gotten to Travis, she would have gone after the women Travis was dating? We all know she slashed Lisa D’s tires and sent those threatening e-mails, and probably stalked them, but do you think she would have gone further, escalating property crimes like setting their homes or cars on fire, or God forbid, physically harming them?

    I am not entirely convinced she didn’t plan to use some of that gasoline to burn evidence, or Travis’s house, or both, and I think she would not hesitate to turn to arson in the future.

  239. 03/26/2013 at 1:48 pm

    Yes I was thinking he hopefully will perceive that and go a little softer on her… I hope he doesn’t jump all over her. I think he has the insight into human nature to pick it up. We will see what happens.. more intrigue and excitement to get him up. Oh did I say get him up?? *blush*

    Yes to both no real distinction between male female psychopaths yet drawn except there appears to be less of them (at least diagnosed ones and ones that kill).. they tend to focus on manipulation and mind games rather than violence as a general statement.

    No I do not believe it was going to be a one off, I believe she would have been a serial killer. In fact I’d nearly be so bold to say I’m sure of it but cannot because it never happened thankfully she has been caught.

    Yes to possibly go after the women but thats far more circumstantial in claiming that.

    I dont know how much further you can get than this crime to be honest. I believe the throat slash would have become her signature. The photos and/or journals her trophies

    The gasoline I believe was purely to avoid receipts to avoid being electronically tracked which goes with the phone being turned off. Well that’s my take on it.

    This crime indicates she is literally capable of anything. It also shows if she started with this much extreme violence she’d probably move on to sustained torture. The level of horror always progresses so to start with this much boggles the mind where she would go next.

    If Travis’ family cannot wear his picture, and no one outside the immediate family can wear blue ribbons, Jodi’s mother should not be allowed to wear her “MOM” necklace” — especially after yesterday’s revelations. She didn’t wear it in the beginning, so I’d like to find out how that came about.

    I want to rip that STUPID Chrissy Snow hairdo right off Jodi’s head, root and all !!

    When do Jodi and Jenny, the Double Mint Twins, coordinate their outfits? Do they do it the night before, or does Jodi change at the court house?

    Jodi is bored right now. Because it isn’t all about HER right now.
    Nevermind the jurors and how much of THEIR lives this irrelevant garbage is taking up though. To Jodi, it’s all about HER or it’s BORING.

    This witness does make a decent/unoffensive appearance on the stand, unlike the last one. I think so long as she doesn’t play games (like Samuels tried) when JM is cross-examining her, he will not go as ballistic on her as he did with Samuels.

    Meanwhile… HOLY S! She is describing JODI right now as the ABUSER! The one who did not want the relationship to end! The one who kept PUSHING IT! STALKING BEHAVIOR! DOMESTIC TERRORIST! That is Jodi, to a “T”.

Well…hello…isn’t this what Jodi did? JM is gonna have a blst with her. She seems like a very credible witness and will not stake her reputation on lying for JA….just my thoughts.

    Talking about JODI again!
    OMG. Brings up example of someone who KICKED A FAMILY DOG TO DEATH.
    Right after the new clips from the interrogation video just revealed that JODI KICKED the family dog (who mysteriously disappeared entirely immediately afterward).

    JODI was the DOMESTIC TERRORIST. ANd she still is. She is now terrorizing (or attempting to terrorize) Travis’ family through all of thes sick, twisted LIES.

    In light of all the disparaging testimony to date against JA, let me just say, the matching outfits, smirks, smiles and all the “girl” talk between JA and JW going on at the defense table does not serve JA well. JA would be well advised to sit there and act like she is on trial for her life and let her attorney’s try to do their job. JA, Nurmi and JW cause me to have bouts of irritability and outbursts of anger on a daily basis!

    I am not looking forward to rehashing the phone sex and other sexually charged testimony and further trashing of TA along with boat loads of BS about poor JA that I am sure is coming down the pike from the testimony of Alyce LaViolette. AL’s diagnosis should be BS instead of BWS since there is nothing to support JA’s claims of abuse by TA. Certainly some of his behavior was less than savory, but I have not heard anything or seen any evidence to substantiate TA being abusive to JA or anyone else. JA was the abuser and pursuer. I too suffered for many years at the hands and mind games of a cruel and sub par excuse for a human being, and it makes my blood boil that JA has no shame in claiming BWS as an excuse to slaughter TA. What I see is a spoiled, defiant, obstinate raging psycho who was going to do what she wanted and get her hooks in TA no matter what, no matter who she hurt or who she took down with her. Her path of destruction is long and wide and as we have seen continues with anyone and everyone whose path she crosses, including Dr. Magoo and perhaps Ms. LaViolette before it’s all said and done! I hope this jury sees through all the garbage and puts her where she needs to be, freeing society from her dangers.

    Once you have witnessed a JA type first hand and in action you can spot them before they come into view! Years ago my daughter began dating a young man that exhibited behavior I was all too familiar with. Having lived years with this kind of abusive nut, I spotted it immediately and set out on an “undercover mother’s” mission to destroy any chance of that relationship taking off at all costs. Let’s just say I beat him at his own game and eventually he found himself looking at a 10+ year stay in the not so hospitable confines of a Texas prison cell. He messed with the wrong mama bear!

    In regards to JM statement about Dr. Magoo having feelings for Jodi, I believe criticism is premature. I think we will hear more about this in rebuttal, perhaps we will see the greeting cards. JM dropped other “teasers” out there as well that were not expanded upon that will also come to light in rebuttal. Turning off the testimony now before I become nauseous or throw something at my computer. JA going to turn on the waterworks and pity party today! I will wait for another great daily recap from Donchais 😉

  339. GN5020
    03/26/2013 at 2:52 pm

    I’m listening to AL’s description of abusers and thinking that JM can easily ask her, without mentioning JA so that Wilmott won’t jump up and object, about specific instances of behavior that shows JA fits the abuser description:

    If a woman slashed the tires of another woman she thought was dating her “boyfriend” or traveled several miles to confront a new girlfriend, would that fit your description of an abuser?

    Is stalking behavior by a woman as indicative of abuse as intimidation by a man?

    If a woman kicked a close family member — for example, her own mother — would her partner be afraid of what she might physically do to him if he tried to end the relationship?

    And on, and on …

    JM doesn’t have to try to discredit anything she says about the description of an abuser, or ask anything about her thoughts about TA; he can just focus his questions on actions by JA that the jury will understand completely. Who’s the real abuser here? Who ultimately was heinously violent?

    I’m tired of hearing about my ex’s qualities, that was a long time ago. Lets get to the current trial!!!!! ~~~~hands on hips~~~

    I too was in an abusive relationship. My hands shake just recalling the abuse.I don’t remember dates but I remember the incidence like it was yesterday. All the things she is talking about happened to me and I kept going back. He took all my self worth away. He was a verbal terrorist. He would call my office and tell the owner of the business lies about me. He would stand at the door of the room I barricaded myself in and yelled digusting things to me. He would break down the door and get in my face. Everyone told me they knew the lies weren’t true. I kept going back because I always thought things would change. They did at times for a little while. Fortunately I met an incredible therapist about six months ago who has helped me get my life back. Also, faith in God helped me too. I am sharing this because I have been given the opportunity to change myself and not allow the abuse to go on. If anyone can relate to this, go find the right therapist who can help you. Not all therapists are the same…it takes the right fit for them to help you.

  343. 03/26/2013 at 2:55 pm

    Simple question – how are they going to PROVE abuse by Travis with just her word? No one else has come forward talking about him abusing anyone.

    As for the emails, text and sound bytes, Really? Has no one ever spouted off on anyone that way? I know I have to my ex, so what does that make me? And if they are going to prove it based on those, then surely the lack of quantity of this stuff would play in.

    And the sex, please, give me a break. That was intimate talking and actions by 2 consenting people that is no more out of the norm then anything else. We don’t live in a puritan society so I don’t think people should be too shocked at the behind-the-closed-door activity.

    Lady on the Stand brought up every aspect that was in direct and now they are going to mold it around the hearsay testiphony of JA. Guess that is what they are paid for. I just pray that the jury sees through all this BS.

    Just had to get on the soapbox today. The defense is infuriating me!

How does one so depraved to have all those traits and yet NO ONE SEES IT IN HIM, EVER?? This is so transparent. JA obviously did all her homework.

    Trace

    OK here goes.

    She knows her stuff, but.. and it’s a very big butt (sorry couldn’t resist) she is talking about a normal ordered person what is termed a neurotic ie someone who is governed y a normal set of emotions.

    People with personality disorders do not fall into this category. They fall into the disturbed character category.

    A huge huge huge difference.

    That’s why so many like MMD and DougIme relate directly to what she is saying.

    Basically she is outlining her CV, telling us her life story and giving us a lecture on the problems that can arise in ‘neurotic’ relationships.

    In no way .. and I mean NO WAY does it relate to Jodi Arias.

    BUT she left the door open as she mentioned ASPD and similar disorders cluster B which are the manipulative disorders.. which opens the door for JM to question her on these. He knows these personality types we saw that clearly in the vid posted yesterday and the DP appeal. sooooooooooooooooooo he is not objecting he is planning!!!!

    sorry for typos Im sure there’s heaps!!

    I’ve always thought because it is in those crime scene photos(#114) it means it was used for something and I do believe that u can see a shape. Whether it’s of the knife/gun hard to tell
    for absolute certainty but I commented a long time back about this tape. I am POSITIVE Jodi used it to hide one of those weapons at some point in that house. I think she may still have that gun hidden somewhere. She may be a trophy collector (journals) and the thrill of reliving the crime is common. She wanted to c the crime scene photos and not just to figure out her story by looking at them but to c her handiwork again. She’s really not unique just another killer with a bad defense. one big LIE! I can c this trial going in to May with all this long drawn out testimony. What do u all have to say about old Alice here. I wonder what her truly abused clients think of this aid to Jodi Arias? I don’t imagine she’s far from total retirement, she made some comment about her book,3rd edition out April, not making it too a 4th due to her age, haha to jury… I hope Juan kicks her ass around that courtroom!!

    JAD: thank you for your lengthy posts #126 and #132 from this morning.
    I am now going to look up the Charles Rathbun as you suggested.
    The name sounds familiar.

    Hi Everyone! Haven’t posted in a while, but been catching up with your great comments and videos etc. When I seem a need to write, I just check here and usually my question is answered. Thanks.

    Doesn’t JW realize what a huge door she opened up for JM – not that he needs it? How dumb is she – don’t know who irritates me more Willmott or Nurmi.

    JW is dragging this on way too long. She just has to go through each item one by one, her stalling tactics. We get it!!! We’ll be lucky if we see Martinez get his shots in this week. Does she really think that this is any comparison to that psycho? Such a disgrace for justice of the truly abused – totally devasting. To think Samuels compared JA to our public servants and now AL to domestic violence. Certainly hope this is the last defense witness. According to HLN it is, but you never know with these clowns. What a waste of taxpayer’s money.

    JW must be reading the comments flying over the media as to wearing “twinsie” outfits, just in spite. She should waste her time on homework for this trial, not worrying about what’s written about the defense team. Gross! The hair thing with Willmott – “bald spot,” think it was MMD – JMO, I think she has hair extensions and not looking too good.

    The dog abuse by JA was just one of the things evil about her. You all probably remember the cat issue and when she smashed her little brother with a bat. If that wasn’t a sign for her “mommie “to get her professional help, then don’t know what else this family needed to realize how disturbed she was and IS. Sick!!!

    Thanks for letting me rant with all of you – lots of what I said is probably a repeat from others. Donchais, you must have lots of patience keeping up this site. Amazing how much traffic you are getting – great job, once again, Thank You.

    To the Travis Alexander Family – my heart breaks everytime I see them. Can’t imagine what kind of hell they’re going through. And to think how much more they have to endour . . .

    Jean C./HLN just talked about how AL has so much experience, blah, blah, blah. According to Vinnie/HLN, the comments he’s getting are all about JM ripping AL apart with all her comments. Wouldn’t want to be in her shoes, best not aggravate JM.

    Look forward to Donchais summary and all of your inputs.

    Jo :

    Donchais….sorry, off topic to another trial. Did anything happen yesterday re: Christian/Newsom. If I missed it, sorry. Thanks.

    It was strange…no streaming and Jamie Satterfield said she couldn’t tweet…media blackout? Not much info other than the parents can wear picture buttons, but will be forced to move back several rows away from the jury…judge sided with def that he will limit the number of crime scene and autopsy pics because the are ‘too inflammatory’ (like Blackwood did), both families walked out of court on that one. Other things still to be decided.

    Just saw Jean Casarez on HLN talking about reading a transcript from a closed door hearing and few weeks ago regarding whether to allow in evidence of TA allegedly looking at pics of little boys. “And the prosecutor ripped into AL…at least on the written page”.

    While I can’t wait to see JM again, I feel badly for this woman. I can almost feel her apprehension.

  402. 03/26/2013 at 4:21 pm

    Hey folks. This has been addressed already, but I want to reiterate: if you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship there is help! There may be shelters in your area (Top Secret) or hotlines (anonymous/confidential) also, Law Enforcement is there to help, believe it, or not. Besides helping my mother at times at her shelter, in a security capacity, I have dealt first hand with a couple abusive ex-husbands. I seem to have an affinity to attract “broken dolls” with psychotic sociopathic narcisistic exes. While most would run from such baggage, I am a warrior, and it is not my habit to run from danger. Especially when children are used as weapons in abusive relationships. Took one of the guys to court one time and beat him like a red headed stepchild, and as a result I became custodian of a red headed step child. There are resources out there. And if you don’t know how, or are scared for you, or your children’s or your friends and their children’s safety or just need someone to talk to, then do not hesitate to call upon me. It’s called support and this site has been a pleasure to observe and be a part of.and I wouldn’t hesitate to do what I can for any of you wonderful people. The fellowship is strong. You can find me on facebook @ johndamianbutts. Or hit me up with an email: johndamianbutts@gmail.com…I’ll un-privatize my FB for a day or so, if any of you wanna look me up.

    Is she there to tell stories or to testify to something relevant to this trial? At this rate, she is going to be on the stand as long as Jodi! How is this allowed? She is way past covering her CV, so referencing “Cosmo” needs to stop. Is it normal for a witness, especially an expert, to just ramble on and on without getting to the point? From a procedural standpoint, who should stop this? Should the Judge instruct Wilmott to get to something relevant? Should Martinez object on grounds of relevance? She has yet to mention “Jodi” or “the defendant” or anything other than her own experiences. If she says ‘Well, when I ask people . . ” or “I remember one case . . . ” Get to the point!

  444. 03/26/2013 at 5:07 pm

    shengave the example that fits Jodi ie jodi’s little whinges that she makes out ar like the worst abuse possible… ergo SHE becomes abusive.

    Hey I just saw this. Thank you cyberfriend! 🙂
    I experienced DV by a boyfriend (an angry young man he was) when I was 19-21. I actually know something about this, in fact he choked me once and I remember every nanosecond of it today (I’m 50)! I stayed because I really wanted to change him. He had other ideas. I think Travis may have tried to change the jodi. And I think he figured out quick-like that she wasn’t worth trying to mold at all and then he had to try and scrape her off himself. Then the clingy, over-possessive/obsessive psychojodi turned into the harmful beyond belief psychojodi.

    Oh, and since Travis never hurt her this testimony is all mute anyway…barf bag.

    btw, years later I met up with my old boyfriend (I’d compiled a book of quotations I wanted him to read & think about just before I broke it off), and he said my book helped him. I could see in his eyes he had changed. He’s now married and we have a decent rapport. Sorry…just felt the need to share.

    Thought I take this time to give my thoughts regarding the comforter that Schaefer brought up earlier. It always bothered me from the start, how in the world did she get Travis back into the shower. I would think it be very difficult for a woman to drag a man of TA’s size.

    A friend of mine and I have gone over this several times. She thinks JA put Travis on a pillow or something to assist in SLIDING his body down the hall into the bathroom and maybe the fibers in the bathroom (supposedly rope per JA) are fringes from a pillow. However, when I saw the forensic gal on the stand with the clothes from the washer, I thought maybe she put him on that towel and pulled it down the hall. That’s why it was in the washer (now all bleached out) while it’s match is still upstairs hanging in the bathroom.

    After joining this blog a couple of days ago; I can’t remember who, but someone attached the burg. report and Flores’ report. Well much to my surprise, Flores’ report actually mentions how unusual he thought it was that the middle of the hallway was void of blood. That reinforced for me that JA put Travis’ body on something to move him back into the bathroom. Now that Schaefer has brought up the comforter, maybe this is what was used. Any thoughts?

    This is really pissing me off. Seeing the reactions of Travis’ siblings is heartbreaking. Jodi sits there with that stupid forlorn look on her face….as though she is remembering all the abuse she suffered while with Travis….I want to hit her (don’t tell Alyce). I am with others….please, Juan, work your magic.

    Yes it’s been hours since I have been feeling that way sooooo infuriating

    LindaLou :
    Thought I take this time to give my thoughts regarding the comforter that Schaefer brought up earlier. It always bothered me from the start, how in the world did she get Travis back into the shower. I would think it be very difficult for a woman to drag a man of TA’s size.
    A friend of mine and I have gone over this several times. She thinks JA put Travis on a pillow or something to assist in SLIDING his body down the hall into the bathroom and maybe the fibers in the bathroom (supposedly rope per JA) are fringes from a pillow. However, when I saw the forensic gal on the stand with the clothes from the washer, I thought maybe she put him on that towel and pulled it down the hall. That’s why it was in the washer (now all bleached out) while it’s match is still upstairs hanging in the bathroom.
    After joining this blog a couple of days ago; I can’t remember who, but someone attached the burg. report and Flores’ report. Well much to my surprise, Flores’ report actually mentions how unusual he thought it was that the middle of the hallway was void of blood. That reinforced for me that JA put Travis’ body on something to move him back into the bathroom. Now that Schaefer has brought up the comforter, maybe this is what was used. Any thoughts?

    I think that is an excellent explanation of a lot of loose ends (pardon the pun) re the tassles and blood dispersion. That with sliding him along the floor with the assistance of wter to further reduce friction. The tassles are there for a reason and this could well explain it. hmmm very good points.

    Don’t think for a minute that Juan Martinez won’t rip into Alyce LaViolet’s butt. He will rip her up if necessary to prove his point that this murderer wasn’t a victim of domestic abuse. Maybe her problem is that Travis should’ve teed off on her. He didn’t want her and he didn’t consider her as “wife material.” This expert is knowledgable, however, her assessment of this murderer is only as good as the information (or in this case “lies”) that she’s being told. She will NOT prevent that needle from going into this murderer’s arm. She, like “Dr.” Samuels, has been bamboozled. She needs to die for this vicious, horrendous slaughter of Travis Alexander.

Travis’s family NEEDS this trial to go back to what it’s REALLY about, a sociopathic, psychopath, that stalked, sexually manipulated, and premeditated a savage murder.

    As I watch this drivel, I am reminding myself of the shock I felt when Casey Anthony was found not guilty (That trial is why my son finalized in his decision to go to law school). The jurors in the CA trial did not know ALL the gory details that we knew, they only knew what was allowed. Just as this jury does not know all the JA details that we know. They don’t know about Dr. Toad sending her greeting cards, they were barely allowed to hear about the slashed tires, they don’t know she borrowed $ from a customer to do her “road trip” – and too many other details to list-

    What does the pattern of women WHO ACTUALLY REPORTED DOMESTIC ABUSE/VIOLENCE TO THE POLICE have to do with THIS DEFENDANT???

    NOTHING!!

    This woman is so all about HERSELF. The more she talks about all these people, the more is just sounds like she is talking about herself and how great she is, because she is helping and saving so many people and they can only ask HER for help, blahblahblahhhh.

    Family of Law:
    Every time I think of the Casey Anthony trial I remember that no one can determine what the
    jury will decide is fact/fiction. We here know what Jodi Arias is and what she did that day but
    the defense only needs that ONE person who feels sorry for her or worse yet actually believes her crap. So for me because of CA I pray every night for JA to be found guilty
    and to get the DP! Not for any reason other than that is what she truly deserves for her crime. That’s the Law! I live in Canada, so just curious to u Americans. Would this trial be best held in AZ or California? Any diff do u think??

    Listen violet let’s get down to the nitty gritty shall we because Im seriously over your drivel

    1. Let’s say he had every abuse factor you have mentioned… which is every one ever mentioned anywhere in any textbook pubkished anywhere at any time… let’s just say that tho there is not one shred of evidence he did okay?

    2. Well are you saying that gives her the right to come tom his house uninvited, dor her to stab him in the heart, then while trying to breath while in the process of dying… have his back stabbed numerous times… as he slid to the floor still fighting for life stabbed more… when he was still fighting for life has his throat slet,,,then dragged towards the shower, convulsed or maybe expirated…. then just to make sure all that didn’t kill him… shot in the head.

    Got It??????

    Now get the fark off the witness stand cos I’m through with you and so should any decent person be!

    why is everything she describes either tailored to JA or Travis? Her stories aren’t but the descriptions are, like violence in the earlier years. Thought most of the descriptions concerning violence describe JA, not Travis though.

Once again this woman only knows what JackAss wants her to know……all her lies!! This woman is talking like all abuse cases are by the book…..you come from abuse you will be an abuser! BS BS BS!!! We have seen in our families as well as friends who came from abuse and not one of the children turned out to be abusers…NOT ONE!! Quit lumping everyone into one mold….it’s not true!!

    JA is simply something that hatched somewhere. She became a booty call for all her boyfriends, (wonder why they all cheated) and was an abuser of TA who she used as a booty call. She didn’t need to drive 1,000 miles. I’m sure there was someone closer who would have accommodated her but she might not have been able to manipulate as well.

    MMD I thin anyone who has been through any type of trauma at all could do a better job of explaining it than she does. It’s ridiculous and as I think Robert said earlier the Jury likely knows all this stuff it’s common sense once you have a little life experience.

    I reckon you could do 10 times better than her… it’s not about the case why the heck is she allowed on the stand??? Like Dr Dodgy it’s all so irrelevant at least at this stage!!

    Yes!!!! Unbelievable! I understand that this is her 1st DP trial, and she is being cautious to allow the defense leeway, in the effort to not give any room for the defense to wiggle in an appeal, but fer crying outloud, get in charge of your courtroom!

    From your mouth, to God’s ears! I hope, I hope, I hope! I salivate at the thought of seeing JA’s empty, soulless eyes registering the words “Guilty, of 1st degree murder”. And break out in a full blown sweat at the thought she’s only found guilty of 2nd degree, or God forbid, only manslaughter.
