    This expert is simply boring. She is teaching the jury and many of us about domestic violence. That’s all well and good, but how does this correlate with Jodi’s lies? Everything that she’s stating refers to Jodi–NOT Travis. I don’t care if she has over 135 years of expertise. The facts can’t be negated that Jodi is a PROVEN LIAR! This lady has put her reputation on the line all for this self-proclaimed liar! Again, all she’s doing is teaching, yet she has NOT connected any of this to Jodi. LaViolet cannot save Jodi. She is already doomed. By the time Martinez is finished with her, she’ll end up looking like “Dr.” Samuels.

      I can’t wait to see Martinez crossing her. It will be funny. She should be ashmed to even consider that this psycho was abused by Travis. Make me sick.

    • 03/27/2013 at 3:23 pm

      What we are learning about domestic violence is that Jodi was the abuser – jealous, isolating etc. and Travis the victim. Martinez is going to have his work cut out for him.

      • 03/27/2013 at 3:24 pm

        I mean – Martinez will have a field day – the defense is laying it out for him to RULE the court.

    Why they leave us hanging without an explanation? Its rude. BTW I was watching HLN and I had a clear feeling that they are kind of preparating us to the news that Jodi will walk free. I hope that the jury noticed what I saw: Jodi couching Jennifer W. To object Martinez. Jodi start to believe that shd is the lawyer and JW the defandant. She is really an evil chamaleon.

    • WhereIsSHE
      03/27/2013 at 3:36 pm

      Perhaps this breaking news is what necessitated the addition of someone new to the state’s witness list.
      IIRC, Jodi specifically denied caring about that trip or having been part of the Cancun trip plans at all when she was on the stand. The state can rebut that to show motive/INTENT.

      My god… over a trip to Cancun….
      (OK– I know it was over much more than that; I know she was a ticking time bomb; I know she was violent and that her violence was escalating; that she was a jealous, obsessed, stalker-monster…and that it’s more likely that Travis finally telling her off/telling her not to call, text, email, etc is what kicked her murderous plan into serious gear, but still… I wonder if she went there with murder on her mind as a way to punish him if he refused to switch it back around and take her instead of Marie Hall.)

      UGhhhhh… we will never know, because what really happened and why will forever stay locked behind those dead FRYING PAN EYES!

      • Ann
        03/27/2013 at 3:43 pm

        From what I’ve heard, Jodi was the one initially on the ticket to go to Cancun, but Travis removed her. The pundits are saying that they believe that Jodi knew this and that was the final straw. She is a scorned lover and everybody knows this. If she couldn’t have TA, then nobody would. She made sure of this.

      • Chrissie A
        03/27/2013 at 4:25 pm

        Hi WhereIsShe – I don’t think it was just the trip, it may have been the final straw, but I do think she went there with murder
        in mind, I also think she was ready to murder again, hence the
        9mm, knives & rental car at the time of her arrest.Let’s hope that the mighty Juan will put the pieces together (as much as he can) for us on this

      • Schaeffer
        03/27/2013 at 5:19 pm

        This may be breaking news to us, but I heard one of Travis’s friends say last week that Travis actually won this trip about 18 months prior to when it was scheduled, which would have been when he was dating Jodi. He surmised that what finally pushed Jodi over the edge an influenced the timing of the murder was not only her jealousy of Travis taking Mimi Hall to Cancun, but because he was taking her to a PPL event, this would be like announcing to the “PPL world” that he and Jodi were over.

        I have also heard several of Travis’s friends say Jodi was notorious for just showing up at PPL events she was not qualified or eligible to attend, for instance an event open only to earners at a certain level or length of service. Jodi would just breeze on in and almost dare them to tell her to leave. Because she was always hanging around Travis, they just sort of let her stay out of respect for him. She also “thought nothing of going up to the so-called stars or higher ups of the company” and flirting with them and “ask them for their autograph.” What grown woman asks for an autograph from someone in their company?

    Let’s forget this witness – get back to premeditation… If this is not pre-meditation, why is Jodi’s “brazillian” so fresh – she got it done in Salinas, I assume, because she knew she was headed to Mesa. No one has a fresh brazillian w/o a reason.

    • Anonymous
      03/27/2013 at 5:20 pm

      I am thinking the same thing. I believe she got the brazillian done when she was supposed to be having her nails done. JM asked do they do hair. I don’t think he was talking about the hair on her head. Didn’t she also testify that she had to go back to Matt’s house after the nail salon. I thought there was a credit card involved in the return trip. If so, maybe Matt’s credit card statement had some evidence on it to show that she got more done than her nails.

    • Anonymous
      03/27/2013 at 6:20 pm

      Yes Chloe I’m thinking the same thing. If she was planning only to see Ryan she wouldn’t have had the fresh ‘cut and polish’ it was for Travis. I’m hoping the person /s who did her hair colour, nails and tush is on Juan’s rebuttal list. Can u imagine if this smart arse bitch even told them at the salon why she was having it done. IE I’m going to see my ex and he really likes it like this and I’m going to win him back.

  10. 03/27/2013 at 3:21 pm

    Another person we should have on the stand: Travis Alexander his testimony – from his picture on 6/4/08, in the afternoon naked pics it looks like his left arm & leg are tied and he uses his right arm to flip Jodi the “super finger” (this gesture was coined by Dane Cook – 2 middle fingers when one middle finger is not expressive enough). Also – his 2 pictures taken 2.5 mins apart are identical. Who doesn’t move a muscle for 2.5 mins? In his autopsy photos there are places on his ankle that look bruised and/or skinned – how did this happen – HE WAS TIED UP… I don’t think Martinez has made this point.

    • 03/27/2013 at 3:43 pm

      Didn’t see that but did see he looked like he was asleep in the first one, woke up and gives her the fingers in the second. Will go have another look.

  12. 03/27/2013 at 3:23 pm

    WhereIsShe:

    Anna-
    That depends on the comprehensiveness of what I presume is a pretrial Order precluding the state from mentioning, referring to, having witnesses refer to Jodi’s “prior bad acts”. There are a couple of rules of evidence which would preclude the use of these “prior bad acts” to be used against an accused. The policy behind these evidentiary rules is that we do not want to convict someone of the current crime with which they are charged due to the fact that they did (or may have done) something “bad” prior to this crime. In other words, we don’t want a jury to convict someone of murder, because they think the defendant is a “bad person” for doing x or y or z prior to the murder. HOWEVER, this particular rule has a list of EXCEPTIONS, such as using the prior bad act to show “motive, intent, opportunity, etc”.
    Then there is another rule which allows the trial judge, in her discretion, which will not be overturned on appeal absent a “manifest abuse of discretion”, to preclude evidence that, even though RELEVANT, is “outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice”.
    So, the short answer is that it DEPENDS on the scope of the judge’s pretrial Order.
    Anyone have a copy of that Order or a link to it?
    I’d like to take a look at it myself.
    **the above is a very abbreviated version of what should have been a more comprehensive explanation of the rules of evidence I referenced, but hopefully it was sufficient for purposes of answering your question

    • 03/27/2013 at 3:25 pm

      OK… so could you explain to me why this doesn’t seem to apply to Travis in this instance. Surely Alice In Wonderland prejudiced him by inferring her whole testimony was about him.

      I’m very confused. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

      • Anna
        03/27/2013 at 3:41 pm

      • WhereIsSHE
        03/27/2013 at 4:14 pm

        Syn-
        Travis is not the “accused”. The reason that the accused has rights (which many mistakenly believe to be some liberal conspiracy) is due to our Constitution. Our founding fathers braved crossing the Atlantic and settling the land, etc, etc, etc in order to “form a more perfect union, establish JUSTICE and ensure domestic tranquility; provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and SECURE THE BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY FOR OURSELVES AND OUR PROSPERITY”. Sick of a life of tryanny, of being unable to stand up to the power of the Church and the State (or both, as they were readily entwined), they crafted our Constitution, the Amendments to which create certain “inalienable rights”, many of which apply to each and every American who could someday find themselves “accused” of a crime which they may–OR MAY NOT HAVE– committed.
        They wished to ensure that someone who is accused is PRESUMED INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW, etc etc etc.
        I know it seems unfair at times. It IS unfair, at times.
        But it isn’t really correct to say that the victim has no “RIGHTS”.
        We cannot turn back the hands of time and de-victimize anyone.
        WHat we can do is to have the STATE prosecute the person or persons it believes is/are responsible for the crime and to then PUNISH the accused upon a conviction.

        Based on those principles–and the rights enumerated in the Constituion– we then have state statutes, constitutions and rules of evidence (state and federal) which govern what make up the elements of each crime which must be proven, and which also govern what kind of evidence may be used to accomplish the conviction.
        The rules which people get upset about as “protecting the criminal!”? Well, I hate to be the tiny voice of reality here, but those rules apply to each and every one of US, because any one of us could –IN THEORY–be accused of a crime and have to fight for our freedom or even our very lives.
        None of us here would do what Jodi did, right?? OF COURSE NOT.
        But what if– and this nightmare HAS HAPPENED to other people who would NEVER do anything like it–one of US, or one of our children, was WRONGLY ACCUSED and had to stand trial??
        It has happened, a heck of a lot more than people want to know or admit.
        Google “Innocence Project” and you’ll see that innocent people have been convicted of horrific crimes they did not commit.
        Imagine that nightmare=(

        But back to your question, it applies to Jodi because she is “the accused” and being accused by the GOVERNMENT/STATE is what causes one’s rights to attach.

        Hope that helps.

    No, not tied up, that was from being dragged down the hallway.

    • 03/27/2013 at 3:28 pm

      That could be true… but look at those two pics from the afternoon. Why are the pics taken at the odd angle where you can’t see his left side? She is a photographer – these pics are not artistic at all, she is taunting him at gun or knifepoint because she is sick and twisted. He doesn’t move from one pic to the next – laying in the same position for 2.5 mins… is this fun? I don’t know of any guy who would put up with this unless he was being forced.

    I agree wholeheartedly. She knew what she was doing when she conned him into taking these pics. She’s a cold-blooded monster and Martinez will ensure that she gets what she deserves. She makes out like Travis had total control over her. She’s enjoying every minute of this.

    Can’t confirm, but found this interesting!

    The prosecution received an email from a Tesaro rep who confirmed the state’s contention that all three purchases were for gas. The defense has requested access to the records referred to in the email. Further, the state added a walmart rep to the rebuttal witness list.

        Wow! I’m PRAYING that he does get this Walmart rep on the stand…that would be so nice! People can say what they want to say about JM, but there’s a method to his madness. For instance, I believe that he intentionally was “all over the place” when he was questioning Jodi on the stand. To me, it was his way of catching her in all of the lies. His strategy, in my opinion, was to NOT ask the obvious questions in a way that she might know which questions he might ask. He didn’t go “straight-line” as people might have wanted him to. He’s unpredictable and that’s what I love about him.

If that’s so, then it could only be for gas. Nailed her lying ass!

      I work with a lot of peeps that have had work done that are on camera, a tell tale sign is a change of hairstyle to throw you off of the change – botox is another matter though, that is where you see puffiness in the face, (one of the things that happened to Meg Ryan) luckily it’s not permanent. It could be a change in lighting as a lot of actors/tv personalities now request special lighting due to the clarity of HDTV.

I thoiught they had been referred to as “sexy”, that they took them during sex or something. When you lok art them,it looks like an ambush. He’s resting; he awakes to her. She placed a KY tube near him while he was resting and iy was gone in the next pic. Then there are 4 pictures of her that I think she took herself. Enough to make you sick, but I don’t see Travis takingthem. The shower pics, although there is some disagreement, about this,, seem to me to look like she took them without him knowing until the end when he sees her and then stares at her. My guess is that during his shower she went down and put the doggioe fence up so that Napolean couldn’t barge in on what she was plannimjg to do.

    • 03/27/2013 at 3:59 pm

      The thing that to me that goes against distance/lens usage for the shower shots are the poses.

      1. she said they were taking movie shots when she told Flores about the ninjas.
      2. The back poses particularly do not seem like a natural shower stance
      3. The poses seem to reflect the psycho shower shots just a little bit too well for my liking plus they illuminate every area of the body she targeted starting with his hand clasped in front of his chest protecting the very area the first stab wound penetrated.

      Too hard for me to dismiss all that as coincidence at this stage.

      I’m with you here, Robert. And I like your description of the sex photos. Travis did look at least half asleep and why is that ky bottle moved. But after that, I can envision her darting all about the place snapping away while doing whateverthehell she was doing- she was in hyper mode..remember what she was able to do in 62 seconds.The first several pics in the shower seem like they were taken without a flash and Travis isn’t looking at her until that one. The camera time stamps are very telling as well. I think she would have taken that camera with her…although why bother to delete your trophy pics…but I think she might have picked it up on accident while gathering his clothes for a nice wash & rinse. (?) Oh wait, what am I talking about. It was the fog. sorry…

      • 03/27/2013 at 4:08 pm

        Anna I thin k she meant to take them as trophies but panicked when she saw the accidental shots. One thing is clear she does not think quickly. Hence the mess she left and all the DNA her plan went to bits cos Travis fought.

        But Syntara– I’m not commited to my idea. YOU got me to think of the matter when you wrote that he looked like he was sleeping.The Psycho shots are too evil for me to grasp I think; that’s why I see them as, perhaps subliminal use of the images as she snaps. I’m agnostic on the matter but I found the discussion and the thinking about it very usefull.

    • Laine
      03/27/2013 at 5:41 pm

      I agree he looks half asleep…but it makes no sense for her to set him up with the pics…lets remember, she wasn’t planning on getting caught. She had every intention of leaving without anyone knowing she had been there…hence the 3 gas cans and deleting the pics and putting the camera through the washing machine…I guess what I’m saying is we can’t have it all ways…either it was premeditated and she planned for no one to know she was there, or she was setting him up. Otherwise it just doesn’t make sense…

    I agree wholeheartedly. She knew what she was doing when she conned him into taking these pics. She’s a cold-blooded monster and Martinez will ensure that she gets what she deserves. She makes out like Travis had total control over her. She’s enjoying every minute
    of this. I hope that smug look of hers is wiped off of her face if the jury comes back with First degree premeditation. It’s time to put this heffer out of her misery!

If I could live there I’d be a happy camper (although I’m really a beach person). Soooooo miss the hill country and the music in Austin!

    I am living a very lonely life. I was abused…..not by a lover….but by a father. So, this went on for more than eighteen years. I have not shared because I get very emotional when I even talk about it. I had told my husband, early early on, that I felt I had friends on this blog. But suddenly, all these relationships formed here….and they respond to each other constantly…..and I rarely posted something that got a response. I guess I should go. I have tried to insert myself into conversations….but it never works. It is like trying to get into a sorority. I have moved after living somewhere for 30 years. I am very, very lonely. I felt I could get a sense of friendship here…but it is like trying to get into a private chat room. I am very sad and will still read….but I am so lonely…and when people only respond to the “in crowd”…..well, it is very sad.

    Can’t confirm, but found this interesting!

    The prosecution received an email from a Tesaro rep who confirmed the state’s contention that all three purchases were for gas. The defense has requested access to the records referred to in the email. Further, the state added a walmart rep to the rebuttal witness list.

    Syntara, did you ever figure out what the duct tape was for? I seem to remember one of Travis Alexander’s friends telling a detective that he use to attach some sort of monitor to his bicep. A calorie consumption monitor or a Bodybug? Sorry I can’t remember where I read that. I hope that helps.

      Ok let’s see….. story so far 😀

      Ive looked at it and discussed with a few peeps..would love more input in it.

      To me it looks like its a sheath for the knife, particularly the part sticking towards the left. if it was straightened it would be a nice little sheath she could have played ninja with and had it strapped to her calf/shin area. Work in progress but I cant get passed it looking like a knife blade at the bottom at the moment

      Welcome Anonymous – I think we have a couple of “Anonymous” so I will make this for all of you. Anyway, I was a lurker for a long time before I joined and it is my first time doing so.

      Since I was given such a warm I usually give everyone the official greeting from everyone. If you are obsessed with this case then you’ll fit right in. We are also really kinda major league fans of Juan Martinez.

      As 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 people from around the world and everyone is so supportive of
      each other. Many of us have gone through life changing traumas and this is a very safe place to share as much or as little as you choose.

      Quite a few of us started out very computer illiterate! I know that today with this new reply/quote format I am totally lost.

      Another nice thing is that you don’t have to use FB or Twitter which I have no clue about or why anyone would even want to use them!!!

      Jump in and have fun. I know I do!! 😉

    Question for: Where Is She…did the pretrial order state that LA (or anyone else) could not discuss Travis’s childhood history, etc. specifically? If that’s true, yesterday when Willmoot gave her “hypotheticals” ie: “suppose a child were raised by drug addicts, and was homeless for periods of time…. Blah, blah, blah”. We’re you surprised Juan did not object? Next question- what would then prevent Juan from asking LA- “hypothetically, if a woman was the abuser, a stalker, that had peered through windows, drove 500 miles to confront another woman, and had slashed an ex boyfriend’s tires, snuck through his doggy door, and hid in his closet…etc”. Would that cause a mistrial, allowing hearsay to come in without naming names?

    • WhereIsSHE
      03/27/2013 at 9:51 pm

      FoL-
      I have not seen ANY pretrial Order. I just suspect –from roughly 2 decades of trying cases– that one must exist, because it is too obvious an issue to leave for objections at trial.
      Remember: we all SUSPECT (yes… we are pretty damned sure that we are 100% correct about this, and we most probably ARE) that FRYING PAN EYES is the one who slashed Travis’ tires, TWICE, and did the same to another young woman he was courting in the Spring of ’08 (I mean.. it seems rather obvious, right?), but… a suspicion, without an ADMISSION or a CONVICTION? That is not sufficient in a court of law for it to even be CONSIDERED as admissible evidence against this defendant.
      AND…even if she ADMITTED TO IT… it could still be held (i.e. ruled by the judge) to be inadmissible due to the rules of evidence I originally addressed on this topic, i.e. the “prior bad acts” rule and then the “relevant, but “danger of unfair prejudice” rule.
      (NOTE: there is a DIFFERENT rule of evidence regarding the admissibility of PRIOR CONVICTIONS–vs. “prior bad acts”, but I will not get into that here or we are in for a long and inapposite lecture on the law, and I don’t think anyone is looking for that right now–or maybe ever. IF the trial keeps getting delayed for migraines, and you don’t mind reading a LOT about the law/rules of evidence, … trust me… I can go there and even site caselaw or direct you to resources that expound on these matters.)

      With regard to TRAVIS’ childhood, etc…
      There would be no ruling on that, because a) he is not the “accused”, and ALSO, because he is not a RAPE VICTIM (certain states have “rape-shield” laws which were enacted to protect rape victims from having their sexual histories used against them, but obviously that is not relevant here).

      ANd let me ask you (all) this:
      If there WAS a rule of evidence or some other avenue by which the state could STOP the defense from bringing it (the victim’s history) up, DONT YOU KNOW THAT JM WOULD HAVE DONE IT/WOULD BE OBJECTING, REQUESTING SIDE BARS?!!
      (Yes! You know that you trust him to do everything he can to protect Travis, the Alexander family members. So… if he isn’t objecting… you know that he has no legal basis to do so, and just trust that despite the fact that it breaks your heart and/or makes you furious that certain information is being used, it doesn’t mean that this doesn’t happen all the time and that, despite that, people get convicted ALL THE TIME, even when the defense attempts to paint the victim as a “criminal” or as an “unsavory” or “bad” character, etc.) (And trust me when I tell you that FEMALE RAPE VICTIMS suffer the MOST when it comes to this sort of thing, although with the help of social network photos and comments, things are not going to be as easy for the “old boys” network as they used to be, case in point: the Steubenville Rape Case (which, without the assistance of that hacker group, “Anonymous”, would have ended the way so many rapes of highschool girls by star athletes in Small Town, America have ended for ages).
      (THEN AGAIN… don’t forget about the Duke “rape” case, where the female “victim” FALSELY ACCUSED so many young men! Imagine being THEIR parents, siblings, friends! It had to have been horrific for them, yes?? So.. isn’t it a good thing that we have Rules of Evidence that precluded the State in that case from trying to use any of the young men’s “prior bad acts” to convict them of a rape which NONE of them committed???)

      See… it isn’t a perfect system. It just can’t be, because there will always be guilty people who are acquitted .. and there will always be innocents who are convicted.
      Sad, but true.

      • Family of Law
        03/27/2013 at 11:46 pm

        Thank you for that great response! Yes, our legal system is not perfect, but it’s still (in my opinion) the best. Our system is designed to assure that it’s better to let a guilty party be set free, than an innocent to go to prison. I know that JM is doing everything is his power to fight for TA and his family. And I suspect he will continue to try and “sneak” things in where and when he can (like Jodi kicking her Mom).

        On a side note to your mentioning the Steubenville Rape Case- and the use of text, pic and social media to aid in the prosecution- My son is a 1st year law student at University of Chicago Law School. His Capital Punishment in America course spent half of the quarter discussing how the introduction of social media (video, text, email, etc) has dramitically changed how many cases are tried- it’s a whole new world! Subsequently, my son deactivated his Facebook account!

    To me that is, as we say here in Ozzie land, ……. arse about face.

    The accused is there to speak for herself. Travis isn’t. To me this law should be about the victim not the person who has the voice to be able to defend themselves against it.

    So while yes to some extent you clarified it re point of law… my logic is still in a fog because quite simply it makes no sense to me.

    Morning all just woke up to see court cancelled today. Migraine? Anyone think the realization the game is up is getting to her? The defence BS just isn’t coming across as she expected. But then this sceptic thinks maybe the defence want some time to regroup and need some time and voila JA has a migraine. Hope it’s back tomorrow because i’ll be able to watch live stream as it’s Good Friday here tomorrow so I can get up at sparrow’s to watch and not have to go to work.

        Yes gotta work and with time diff I can only check first thing in the morning and at night byeeeeeee

    • 03/27/2013 at 5:19 pm

      Heya Essem! 😀

      Don’t know about her thinking the game is up but she sure wouldn’t have related to anything Alice in Wonderland said.

    But Syntara– I’m not commited to my idea. YOU got me to think of the matter when you wrote that he looked like he was sleeping.The Psycho shots are too evil for me to grasp I think; that’s why I see them as, perhaps subliminal use of the images as she snaps. I’m agnostic on the matter but I found the discussion and the thinking about it very usefull.

    I fully understand. To think that it was orchestrated right down to that it beyond diabolical. I see why cog diss is saying “no that couldn’t be it surely..” with the other voice saying “you know it could be”

    Anyone who wouldn’t mind popping over to my blog http//www.wickedscruples.com and just giving me some feedback on whether I should close it off again or now start blogging re: arias and her psychopathy.

      I’m trying to get on Syn but do I have to create an account with WordPress?? I don’t think I did that here. Just asking cuz it appears my user name as it appears here has been taken…???

      I think here, all I had to do was enter a username and my email address. No password was needed.

      Or, it could be my computer literacy issues 😦

      • 03/27/2013 at 5:35 pm

        hmm no you should not need a password. A number of peeps have been in and left initial comments to be authed to post.. maybe one of them can tell ya what they did

        03/27/2013 at 5:39 pm

        OK, I’ll keep trying. Bear with me.

      • 03/27/2013 at 5:53 pm

        Trace.. did you see MMD was spitting chips over waiting ti be auth’d when I was at work? Ask her how she put her comments in when she’s around.

        03/27/2013 at 7:04 pm

        I just left my comment the same as I do here. Filled in my email addy and MMD, said a couple of words where it said ‘ enter your comment here’ and hit post comment. Ended up with a really cute little green avatar.

        If I can get on there anyone can – remember i’m the one that needs a 10 year old to tell me how to do pretty much anything on a computer!!!!

    Hi Everyone!!!!

    I’ve missed you all immensely. I’m sick. So flippin sick. I have no voice whatsoever and yes, the people closest to me love it. 🙂

    I’ve tried to keep up on the comments as I simply refuse to watch someone on the stand who has not even spoken to JA, never mind testify on her behalf. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong on that.

    I agree that HLN is “preparing” us for the possibility that she will walk. Why? Seriously, what is going on? This is going on waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy too long. Wrap it up.

    If she is gonna walk, would we not all want to know sooner than later?

    Yes MMD I too will suffer withdrawal but omg….enough. Especially someone on the stand that has not interviewed her???? I’m beyond frustrated.

    • Tracey A
      03/27/2013 at 5:48 pm

      Aw! So sorry to hear you are so sick. Hope you are well soon. I don’t think it’s possible for her to walk since she has already admitted to killing Travis. What we don’t want is manslaughter or 2nd degree murder. Needs to be 1st degree felony murder no if’s, and’s or but’s.Period!

      • janetlynn
        03/27/2013 at 6:06 pm

        Oh Tracey. I agree completely. I’m just sick of all of the 2nd degree or manslaughter comments. I think I’m bitter right now 🙂

  44. 03/27/2013 at 5:29 pm

    Who would have guessed that this stone cold killer would pull her antics again today. I demand a mistrial judge, these proceedings are giving my court imposed client a migraine.

    • 03/27/2013 at 5:32 pm

      hmmm so are you saying the defense knows it’s in big trouble so it’s again reverting to it’s mistrial mantra? Mistrial over what? Or is that totally tic?

    • Tracey A
      03/27/2013 at 5:44 pm

      I say just give her a cyanide tablet and be done with it. That’ll cure her “migraine” along with a few other things.

    03/27/2013 at 5:34 pm

    Hi all,
    I too have been visiting this site and reading all your comments! And of course following this trial very close. I think Mr. Martinez is doing a great job, and prey the outcome is good. I was very disappointed with the Casey Anthony trial as was so many others. I can’t image what it will be like if this person (I say that lightly) doesn’t get the needle or live with no chance of parole.

    God Speed Mr. Martinez, and the bless the Alexander family.

    That’s just buffalo chips…she gets exactly what all inmates at the jail get…2 meals a day…2500 calories…that whole, ‘oh I need a power bar to get me through’, yesterday was just another manipulation by Arias and the defense…don’t drink the kool aid!

    • 03/27/2013 at 5:49 pm

      whaaat now she’s whinging that she wants special treatment with her food.

      MY lawdy dawdy dimmer switches, sound proof room and now she wants gourmet meals.. does she think this is a pleasure cruise????

    • 03/27/2013 at 9:03 pm

      Donchais ~~ I do not even eat anywhere near 2500 calories a day. Ohhhh how she loves to manipulate those that will let her get away with it.

    • Nancy Pennington
      03/27/2013 at 9:04 pm

      Donchais: agree with your post #162. Saw Beth Karas on HLN—JA gets the same treatment as any other prisoner that is in a trial. Gets up no earlier than 3:00AM (not 1:00AM ) maybe not until 4 or 5:00AM, cleans up, gets dressed (in prison attire, I think) then is transported to the courthouse. She is given breakfast there and then waits until her trial starts to be moved to the court room. This should not change to suit MS ARIAS. As for the lunch issue, I thought that was taken care of a month ago????? Maybe she feels that she needs a gourmet lunch since she is so SPECIAL??? I guess the court could send a taxi or limo to pick her up at the jail just in time for trial and then take her to lunch (complete with wine er whine) and then return her to court for the afternoon. Also, maybe they could arrange an afternoon tea . Sorry for the rant but this skank and her antics are making me crazy!

    Hi Venting peeps! Doesn’t it sound odd & unlikely that the Jodi’s jail breakfast is served between
    2 & 3 a.m.? Really? And I would expect Jodi would have money in her canteen account
    for extra food or snacks, or is that only in a prison setting? If you see the size of some of those inmates, they sure are not lacking in the food department. Also, on the Nancy Grace
    tour thru her jail facility, the guard even showed a typical lunch with peanut butter sandwich, etc, and it was Jodi’s responsibility to pick up her lunch to take to court.
    Any thoughts or answers?
    Thanks!!

    • 03/27/2013 at 5:56 pm

      money in her food account.. what about money from her sketches she’s using the courtroom as her muse! ffs!! it’s all tooo bizarre for this little black duck!

    03/27/2013 at 5:56 pm

    Hey Marilyn. I suggest you watch Lock Up or Lock Up Raw. Maricopa County, women’s jail. They have all the canteen they can get. There may have been a corn chip with squeeze cheese and salsa, shaken in the bag and warmed on the toilet on a make shift toilet paper stove planned for 3 p.m. Wouldn’t want to miss that!!!

    Oh, and let’s not forget the sex jaunts in the shower and drugs flowing freely. JA is not having a ball and chain existence in there. My guess is she is Queen of the Castle and has all the canteen she can get. I’d put money on it. Trouble is, none of her little followers are in court.

    Guess what JVM said yesterday about her tweeter friend’s message was true. Psycho couldn’t continue the remainder of the evening session cuz she was ill – jail gave her a protein bar. Yeah, right!!! This is just the continuance of the psycho’s bs. Jean C. said earlier she overheard Willmott tell the court sheriff (or whatever he’s called), “Make sure that JA gets her meds – very affirmatively.

    Talk about protecting the murderer’s rights – what rights are there for the family. So unfair, but this is the judicial system and got to go with the flow, unfortunately. JUST HOPE THIS DOES NOT GET A HUNG JURY!?!? Please, let’s hope we have some real smart jurors with common sense.

    Just keep going back to the CA trial and it sickens me. Little “Baby Caylee” got lost in the whole mess and that scumbag is still breathing the air on this planet.

    I swore after that verdict I’d never follow another trial so intensely. Guess what? Here I am, along with millions of others. Let’s all hope Travis and his family gets the Justice that they so, so deserve.

      Go to the Dateline web site. They did a show on the Doug Grant trial. Mormon here in Gilbert, AZ who drugged his wife (Faylene Grant) on Ambien and then drowned her in the bath tub. Juan Martinez prosecuted that trial and sent the cheating, murdering cad to prison. It was beautiful. It also was a purely circumstantial evidence case and Juan still got the conviction.

    Okay if I were a juror on this trial I would take my chances at contempt of court at this point and hopefully get slapped with 10 days in jail. Then I would be free from all this BS!

    I agree with Donchais give the bitch a barf and tell her sit down and suck it up! Ahhh that felt good to write. 🙂

    RE: mistrial ……. Doesn’t the defense have to find reasons to ask for a mistrial from time to time to show
    that they are doing a good job so Jodi can’t come back and claim she deserves a new trial .

    Syn – Your site gave me a helluva time. I had to create and account, change user name, email, etc.

    I’ll check with Chrissie once I get caught up on comments. To log in on your site, I can only pick a user name with lower case letters and numbers. Not the case on Donchais site. Here I can remain as Tracey A. I don’t understand how Chrissie is still capitalized and so is MMD. Have no idea wtf I’m doing wrong. So I’ll just check back on your site for posts. I am very interested in what you have to say. I may not be able to comment tho till I figure it out. 😉

      Trace we’ll get to the bottom of it… maybe not now but I’ll endeavour to find out. Might need to get you to send me an email or something.. is it when you try to comment? Obviously you had access to the site cos you sat MMD and Chrissie’s stuff?

    Hi Everyone!!!!
    I’ve missed you all immensely. I’m sick. So flippin sick. I have no voice whatsoever and yes,
    I agree that HLN is “preparing” us for the possibility that she will walk. Why? Seriously, what is going on? stand that has not interviewed her???? I’m beyond frustrated.

    Hi JanetLyn – So sorry you are sick!!! Plus to make it worse you are listening to the spin doctors at HLN – I would take all of them with a pinch of salt (or a hot toddy lol) with the exception of Beth. They are all in this for ratings and shock value and a lot of their reports lack credibility – JA was interviewed by Dr. Lavatory – I posted this earlier courtesy of Chris Stark:

        They have it listed to start at 9:20 am on the court calendar, it looks like the judge has another case hearing at 2:00pm (unrelated to the Arias case) – but as we have learned this can change 🙂

I’m not an expert but GD does the freaking Judge realize this has gone on for too long. Get the freaking defense on track to speed it up!!! F^%&k Jodi and her health! Let’s hope the bitch has an aneurysm, massive heart attack or an immobilizing stroke in front of the Alexander’s in court! I bet the jury would do the wave! 🙂

        Oh yes, I just saw that post. I really didn’t hear it either. I have no idea what they were even arguing about.
        And yes, you r right, jodi looked just fine. I can’t believe she has the power to cancel a whole day of court. It’s hard to believe if it was a migraine, the judge wouldn’t just cancel the morning, then see if her medicine kicked in, and proceed with afternoon court at least

    Great! Thanks Chrissie A. Wow….reading through that when it’s all in one piece like that sure sounds like he had something on her and was about to blow it up in her face. Maybe there was more to her motive and her actions than just the Cancun trip! She was silencing him about something!! Oh Travis….why were you so tolerant for soooo long?? His only guilt was that he was too kind to her…..that BITCH needs to be put down like the rabid animal she is!! Courage and patience to the Alexander Family….we’re all in your corner!!

    • Chrissie A
      03/27/2013 at 8:58 pm

      Hi CiCi & Ladies – I completely agree, he had caught her in a huge lie of some sort, maybe Juan will enlighten us on this as the case sloooowly progresses. The only e-mail that I have heard of Travis sending her (other than the texts I posted to you) was via Facebook – I’m trying to hunt that down for you also. Love, Love you guys posts ~~~~hugs~~~~~~

      • Ci Ci's Circle
        03/27/2013 at 9:21 pm

        Thanks Chrissie A! We remember when one of TA’s friends was on one of the talk shows he said that TA let him read it and his friend told him, “that’s kinda of harsh….aren’t you afraid of what she might do to you?” We don’t remember if it was ever shown in court. We’re not really skilled in trying to find stuff out on the Internet so we appreciate your talents in searching and sharing!

    • 03/27/2013 at 9:39 pm

      Yep as I thought.. the biggest thing psychopaths have to hide is their nature. They will do anything to ensure it isn’t revealed. they know they are different and they also know if their true nature was known they’d be shunned. As per previous post I noted this.

      Dammit he shouldn’t have told her!!! Need those damn journals!!!

    • Chrissie A
      03/27/2013 at 9:42 pm

      Yes, I’ve heard that about TA’s friend and you just know that Juan has pulled that from Facebook as they keep records on everything! (I’m constantly reminding the younger ones on there to keep that in mind, but I fear it falls on deaf ears) Also, If there is a copy online I will do my best to find it for you, I’m currently checking Det. Flores testimony earlier in the case to see if I can put a timeline in the search parameter. I enjoy research so it’s no biggie for me as long as time permits, please let me know if there is anything else you ladies want to take a looksee at 🙂 ~~~~hugs to all~~~
      PS I hope your friend’s hair is faring better she has my condolences 😦

    • 03/27/2013 at 9:54 pm

      In view of this I’m going to share something I’ve never shared before: This is why I know what Travis went through.

      You are a monster who can’t feel real emotion, who could never understand the pain of betrayal, instead of feeling sad for me you loved it, as much as you can love, the only way you can feel. You loved being cruel to me, you thrived on the manipulation and lies you spun me. You have no idea what you threw away, you are incapable of understanding it. You never understood the value of what I felt because it was based purely on your manipulation.
      I remember sobbing and pleading and begging you to answer “What are you?” Well it turns out you really are a monster, you really do lack what makes the best of us human. What you are is a mutant.

      No wonder I so needed to know what you are. No wonder I couldn’t accept what I knew you to be. I knew though, right at the beginning when you were ridiculously suggesting we were soul mates, I knew. Something looking out for me screamed at me… “No, not soul mate, nemesis” and I felt it as truth, felt it as a knowing. It’s what you truly are. You represent everything opposite to me. Your covert passive aggression sickens and astounds me.
      How lies and manipulation are enough to get through life is beyond mine and most other people’s comprehension. To us it seems pointless, futile and insane. For you it is the only pleasure you know. Yes it’s extremely shallow, can’t be any shallower, but that is how you like it, that is how you make it. That is all you know.

      You have no idea how sorry I feel for you that you can and will never understand what you threw away. That you can never understand anything deep. I know to you it doesn’t matter, no matter what you say to spin it. i know though, I know. I know every little tiny thing about what we went through and why. I know everything there is to know about your pathetic pointless existence.

      You are an imbecile, in the very literal sense of the word I say that not as an insult merely as fact. To illustrate this take just one example: With me you had the chance to be so much more, more than most people dare dream. Sadly, being an imbecile, you didn’t realise what was available to you. You had no idea of the incredible opportunity you, we, were given. You couldn’t, or by definition you would cease to be an imbecile. You are what you are. As sad and pathetic as that is, you are what you are. A wasted existence. I can’t believe you threw what we could have had away.

      Who but a complete fool would do such a thing? All you had to do was stop lying, stop the passive aggressive bullshit, stop the deceit and manipulation All you had to do was be a rational thoughtful human being, an adult. That seemingly simple, natural behaviour is beyond you. Totally beyond you. You don’t possess the basic human traits to allow it. What is so simple and logical to the rest of us, to you it’s a complete mystery.

        Wow, Syn.
        I mean.. just…
        So glad you had the capacity to get yourself out of that; to get away; to stand firm.

        It couldn’t have been an easy road.

        Well done, you.

        It’s too bad that Travis didn’t have your resolve. He clearly was finally seeing Jodi for who–more like WHAT–she was by April, 2008.
        It breaks my heart that she was able to use sex to lure him in again (referring to–at the very least– the phone sex she recorded in early May’08; still not convinced that Travis had invited her or even had a clue she was going to show up at his home on that horrificly fateful date in June ’08)

      • Tracey A
        03/27/2013 at 10:30 pm

        Oh Syn…I’m at a loss for words here. Utterly profound comes to mind. But that doesn’t do this justice.

        This reminds me so much of those last emails or texts from Travis to JA. Where he calls her out for being the crazy bitch she is. I think this is exactly what Travis was trying to tell JA.

        I’m so sorry that you had to look into the eyes of a monster. {{{hugging you so tightly}}}

      • 03/27/2013 at 11:32 pm

        Believe me to get to that point I had been through hell! I too wish I had found a name for it earlier and then I might have not excused him for so much.

        I saw what he was doing, clearly, and told him. But I did not believe he could be like that.

        Oh Syntara ~ all I can say is…I know.

        Sometimes – well most of the time – it feels like something inside me is broken or the effects of the relationship profoundly changed me and I can’t find the “me” I was before the relationship. I get afraid I will never be able to have another relationship because my heart feels encased in concrete. And the worse part is still missing him – or the illusion of him. Fortunately, I do come back to my senses.

        And underneath all the FOG, I still grieve.

      • 03/28/2013 at 9:00 am

        Took my studies and pure will power to get through that. Along with a dousing of luck.

        I know how you feel! I’ve lived it and that is the hardest part to get by. Distinguishing the illusionary character from the actual one. So so hard

    Methinks there may be more to the ‘ol migraine ploy?

    From what I understood is that CNN/ABC are wanting disclosure of the defenses hourly rates and amount of hours put into the trial so far. Which I believe is public record as the state is footing the bill. The defense filed a motion stating that releasing said info would affect the defendants right to a fair trial – then they all trotted off to chambers. Anyone else please pipe in if I need correcting

    • Tracey A
      03/27/2013 at 9:55 pm

      I think you’re correct Chrissie. I had heard something about that too. I’m sure we’ll be hearing it soon enough!

      As to the the defendant’s right to receive a fair trial…that shipped has sailed!!! Oh, don’t get me wrong here; she’s had a MORE then fair trial. But look at her defense team. Could that be because JA is indefensible???

      And I’m sure Wurmi will file a few more Prosecutorial Misconduct Motions before we’re done. He’s beat that dead horse a few times already.

    • 03/27/2013 at 11:35 pm

      Not a correction but question. How would knowing how much money is spent on her defense affect her defense?

      • Chrissie A

      I’m sure they will have a shot lined up to cure it 😉

      • WhereIsSHE
        03/27/2013 at 10:24 pm

        Precisely. They will “cure” her of the migraine for the explicit purpose of putting her to death. They will operate on someone to “cure” them of some random illness in order to carry out an execution order if they have to.

  85. Tracey A
    03/27/2013 at 9:03 pm

    Sadly, I’ve seen many articles regarding various DP cases that on the day of execution if the convict is not well i.e. has an illness of any sort, the execution is postponed until the convict is treated and well enough to die. I really wish I were kidding her, but it’s true! It’s considered “Cruel and Unusual Punishment”.

    And sorry all, I’m not using the “reply” button anymore. It takes me too long to go back thru previous posts. So, if I’ve missed something, my apologies.

    Can someone please remind me why there is no court on Fridays? I think the snail pace of this trial is ridiculous. Now we have a half day tomorrow and no court on Monday, I presume for the holiday, but come on! What have we averaged, 12 hours of testimony a week if that? I mean we rarely get more than three days of testimony in a week and then after all the breaks there’s usually only about four hours of testimony a day. It’s ludicrous and the cost to the tax payers just keeps going up.

    • Tracey A
      03/27/2013 at 10:12 pm

      Hi Lisa – I believe court is dark every Friday because of budget constraints. Obviously, the JA trial is not helping things in that regard at over $800k so far. And I’m not sure why no court on Mon 4/1. That’s just the schedule the Judge gave. Ironically, that’s April Fool’s Day. And this while trial is just one GIANT prank on all of us. And no body is a bigger fool than JA and her entire defense.

    …stream-of-consciousness rant warning….here goes the regurgitation of Anna’s brain…forewarned…might wanna grab a hard hat if you decide to continue on….

    Last night my hubby (who’s from England btw) & I had a big argument (we hardly even argue anymore after nearly 26 official years -not bragging’ its just the facts, ma’am – I have no idea what I did to deserve this guy & every female who knows him wants him…..okay, that’s bragging, but just so you know he’s so normal sometimes it hurts…also, I complain a lot….and I’m out of IPA…no, not really ya silly), okay I’m back…must say the argument happened mostly because our beloved teenage daughter knows all my buttons and lives these daze to pit my Mr against me, it seems. Too much fun. And yeah, you have that straight….I’m menopausal & and the human I gave birth to, nurtured, taught, etc., is now almost 16 and raging hormonally. And I knew this day would come…~~she goes again into a trance~~ Tangent ongoing…raising teenagers is like trying to nail jello to a tree. And, as they say, you spend the first 15 years of their lives trying to keep others from harming your offspring and you spend the next 6 years trying to keep Yourbadself from harming them! No, I’m fine. Seriously I think I should state that my comment here was a joke…sarcasm…things 50-yr-old-moms say when they are in a fog. I take no responsibility whatsoever…oh stop it.

    Pressing on…and I’m almost to the point, of like, all this nonsense…. So, my Mr was mostly wrong last night as it comes to stand, and so today he started asking me about the trial! Ha! Internally, I’m LMAO because heretofore he’s played mostly the role of Puddy in Seinfeld when I blather on about said trial. Must say, I’d prefer a nice meal or some flowers as that lame bs is way TLTL (too little too late). Gotta love ‘em for trying tho, right? And I do.
    Oh, and as for my part in being bitchy last night in the argument, I need to know who I can blame for that!! I know the daughter is the obvious choice but there’s gotta be something deeper going on here. Yeah, I know. And if anyone responds to this rubbish I’m gonna love reading it. Cheers to people who want to see justice for Travis within our lifespans!
    …please accept my formal apologies as I can’t seem to tame my ‘reptilian brain’ any longer…and I’m becoming as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I want to thank ‘mom’ (donchais) again for letting us occasionally play with sharp objects. Nevertheless, and just in case: Fog. City. USA. I know nothing.

    By the way, Rache, how are you doing?

    • Tracey A
      03/27/2013 at 10:20 pm

      OMG! You are on a roll these days! LMAO!!! Puddy from Seinfeld Priceless 🙂 I’ve always wondered why my mom didn’t “take me out” as a teenager. I certainly gave her every reason to. I just love your rants, Anna!! Keep ’em comin’!!

      btw – Not sure if you saw my reply (Janeto did) but I thought you were British…don’t know where I got that??? It might’ve been the fog I’ve been known to fall into. LOL!

      Dearest Anna,
      they grow up and move out into their own place and then u go there for dinner and
      little get togethers and u forget when they were 16 and living at home and driving u nuts. Brats! but they grow up eventually!! Mine`s 23 an absolutely lovely young woman, not a bit of trouble!! Oh one more thing I`ve been in F—–g menopause for 11 years now! good-nite my Dear!!

      I always love the way your stream of consciousness rants go!!! They make me laugh until I cry. Isn’t it nice to have a place to let loose 🙂

      Just remember, when said offspring is well into her 20’s she’s going to do an about face and be soooooooooo surprised at how smart her mother is and how much said mother has learned!!!!!! 😉 It’ll take a little longer for her to realize that you were smart all along! LOL

    • Anna
      03/28/2013 at 10:24 am

      OMG thank you all for such great responses to my dribble! I’ve even been through this cycle before as I have a 23 year old son who’s been out of the hormonal fog for about 2 years now. And yes Trial Wacher, in fact I just went to visit him in Denver and we had a blast together. It’s just hard when the female brat tries to use her dad (whose wrapped so tightly around her finger he don’t know) against me. Think I’ve finally learned to walk away and shut up till emotions simmer down. And yes MMD, we like to say this happens because parents become mysteriously stupid while a child teenaging. We keep telling her we’ll be smart again in a few years. For myself, I like to tell her that I’ve actually had the displeasure of being that age, while she knows zip about my age. Can’t remember her reply – just know it starts with “yeah, but…..”
      Tracey A: Wonder why you thought I was British? Maybe it cuz I married one and have spilled out some British-like terms here & there. Anyway, glad you liked the Puddy reference. I call him that all the time these daze. I’m specifically referring to the time he’s on the plane with Elaine. Hysterical!

      Thanks again to everyone for lifting my spirits here. It’s just so very nice to chat (rant) about things with people who get it. And apparently I don’t get enough of that right now!

      Oh please tell me this is true…that Juan Martinez has the unedited notes of the jodi interview….I’ve been stressing that defense team has the upper hand right now since they feigned the jodi had a headache and the blabbering of the old hippie will resonate with the jury over the weekend. I can just see ms. wilma keeping ms lavoiolette on the stand all day tomorrow so our man Juan Martinez cannot cross and give the jury the entire weekend with Monday to ponder the testimony. Oh such BS. …oh my. My eyes and ears are bleeding and my blood pressure is on the rise.

I remembered JM asking her on cross about the computer/pix/masturbation (lie) and she said she had never said that to ms violet.

      Well ya always have 2 choices in life, get angry or laugh about it. Obviously she is taking the smarter route!!! I remember my mother couldn’t understand why I wasn’t upset when I found out that my little cousin (2 1/2 at the time and was my ringbearer or as he said ring bander) had painted my bedroom with nail polish, His parents were in the living room thinking he was asleep but no, he got the tv, exercise bike,vcr, lamp, wall, bed, himself then decided to cover it all up with Vaseline Intensive Care lotion. Thankfully my mother had gone back home and didn’t see it, only heard about it. Meanwhile, I was in Cape Cod at the family house and thought it absolutely hilarious. I figured at least he was smart enough to try and cover it up! By the time his folks arrived back to MA he and everyone had forgotten all about it. I still roar when I think about it!

      Sorry CiCi, I digressed but it so reminded me of that incident. I mean truly, what the hell was I going to do about it on my honeymoon on the Cape????? It might have been a different story though if I had still been in Halifax when it happened. LOL 😉

      Well welcome neighbour. At least you know where I am! I usually tell people from the States to go to Maine and hang a right. 😉 Now I gotta give you your official greeting!
      Since I was given such a warm welcome I usually give everyone the official greeting from everyone. If you are obsessed with this case then you’ll fit right in. We are also really kinda major league fans of Juan Martinez.

      As 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 people from around the world and everyone is so supportive of
      each other. Many of us have gone through life changing traumas and this is a very safe place to share as much or as little as you choose.

      Quite a few of us started out very computer illiterate! I know that yesterday and today with this new reply/quote format I am totally lost.

      Another nice thing is that you don’t have to use FB or Twitter which I have no clue about or why anyone would even want to use them!!!

    Syntara :
    In view of this I’m going to share something I’ve never shared before: This is why I know what Travis went through.
    You are a monster who can’t feel real emotion, who could never understand the pain of betrayal, instead of feeling sad for me you loved it, as much as you can love, the only way you can feel. You loved being cruel to me, you thrived on the manipulation and lies you spun me. You have no idea what you threw away, you are incapable of understanding it. You never understood the value of what I felt because it was based purely on your manipulation.
    I remember sobbing and pleading and begging you to answer “What are you?” Well it turns out you really are a monster, you really do lack what makes the best of us human. What you are is a mutant.

    No wonder I so needed to know what you are. No wonder I couldn’t accept what I knew you to be. I knew though, right at the beginning when you were ridiculously suggesting we were soul mates, I knew. Something looking out for me screamed at me… “No, not soul mate, nemesis” and I felt it as truth, felt it as a knowing. It’s what you truly are. You represent everything opposite to me. Your covert passive aggression sickens and astounds me.
    How lies and manipulation are enough to get through life is beyond mine and most other people’s comprehension. To us it seems pointless, futile and insane. For you it is the only pleasure you know. Yes it’s extremely shallow, can’t be any shallower, but that is how you like it, that is how you make it. That is all you know.
    You have no idea how sorry I feel for you that you can and will never understand what you threw away. That you can never understand anything deep. I know to you it doesn’t matter, no matter what you say to spin it. i know though, I know. I know every little tiny thing about what we went through and why. I know everything there is to know about your pathetic pointless existence.
    You are an imbecile, in the very literal sense of the word I say that not as an insult merely as fact. To illustrate this take just one example: With me you had the chance to be so much more, more than most people dare dream. Sadly, being an imbecile, you didn’t realise what was available to you. You had no idea of the incredible opportunity you, we, were given. You couldn’t, or by definition you would cease to be an imbecile. You are what you are. As sad and pathetic as that is, you are what you are. A wasted existence. I can’t believe you threw what we could have had away.
    Who but a complete fool would do such a thing? All you had to do was stop lying, stop the passive aggressive bullshit, stop the deceit and manipulation All you had to do was be a rational thoughtful human being, an adult. That seemingly simple, natural behaviour is beyond you. Totally beyond you. You don’t possess the basic human traits to allow it. What is so simple and logical to the rest of us, to you it’s a complete mystery.

    So happy you made it safely out of that situation. Good for you, Syn! It appears there are a lot of us on here that have had some horrendous relationships! Hugs to all…

    WhereIsSHE :
    Wow, Syn.
    I mean.. just…
    So glad you had the capacity to get yourself out of that; to get away; to stand firm.
    It couldn’t have been an easy road.
    Well done, you.
    It’s too bad that Travis didn’t have your resolve. He clearly was finally seeing Jodi for who–more like WHAT–she was by April, 2008.
    It breaks my heart that she was able to use sex to lure him in again (referring to–at the very least– the phone sex she recorded in early May’08; still not convinced that Travis had invited her or even had a clue she was going to show up at his home on that horrificly fateful date in June ’08)

    He did have my resolve. You have to understand you can keep tellin them this stuff but they ring you or knock on your door straight after as if it never happened. Or, at first in tears begging for forgiveness, promising they’ll change.

    At first you believe the empty gut wrenching “sorry’s” you believe they see the error of their ways. You’ve seen Jodi so convincing in the interviews. You don’t expect someone to be able to lie like that, so of course, unless you’re a colder person than I and Travis, you give them a chance.

    By the time you truly see them for what they are, it’s too late. Nothing you say seems to register with them. Without conscience, guilt or remorse they can’t be hurt like we can. No matter what you say to them it bounces off them, it’s like they just don’t get it. Well they just don’t get it. It’s absolutely bizarre and disarming.

    But…. Someone do the smallest tiniest thing to them and whoa!!!! It’s like the end of the world. hence the dog ‘disappearing’ when it made her clean up the disgusting diapers. The oh poor me I can’t sleep for the nasty mean jail noise. Their sense of entitlement knows no bounds and is totally disconnected from reality. This is the alternate reality. Their hypocrisy and self righteousness is mind boggling. The only thing that matters is their game of choice and winning. It’s the only thing that matters.

    If it is true court was called off because Jodi was ‘sick’ the amount of self satisfaction that would bring her would have been immeasurable.

    The kinds of words, emails texts you see there from Travis and I don’t just start there. That’s built up frustration, outrage, disbelief, helplessness and hopelessness. Their actions are simply beyond belief.

    This is coming into contact with pure evil in the guise of a caring, attentive, empathetic, sympathetic…. Ostensibly Perfect…. Human being.

    Nobody expects that… We aren’t taught it even exists!

    This is why it changed my life – I had to find out what it was. To my surprise it had a name, classification, diagnosis and studies. Complete with the brain scans I once told him I wanted to perform on him myself!

    I was astounded! But……. More importantly I was validated. I believe Travis, with his reference to sociopath knew more about what he was dealing with sooner than I. Oh I knew what I saw, but I didn’t have a name for it. Travis did.

    • 03/28/2013 at 8:49 am

      Syn~~each time I read what you know about this type of person, I question the mental capabilities of JW & Wurmi.

    My son is a 1st year law student at University of Chicago Law School. His Capital Punishment in America course spent half of the quarter discussing how the introduction of social media (video, text, email, etc) has dramitically changed how many cases are tried- it’s a whole new world! Subsequently, my son deactivated his Facebook account!

    Smart man! As far as I’m concerned people provide way, way too much info on their Facebook pages that anyone can see. They can pretty well learn anything they want about them and the pictures, especially of little children, is imo, simply a paradise for pedophiles. Don’t and will never have a FB page.

    Just want to make a point about migraines. Now, don’t get me wrong, it has NEVER even occurred to me that JA truly has a migraine cause it really is just a ploy when things aren’t going her way or the attention is off her.

    Having said that, migraines, however, can start without any warning for some people. I usually have a warning, i.e. aura, lights, etc. but NOT every time. Just ask anyone who really gets them, they can know what is starting or they can hit without a hint of warning,

    • 03/28/2013 at 8:27 am

      Oddly enough, I had a migrane last night. Mine aren’t as bad as your’s, I don’t think, but they sure put me to bed. I don’t get the aura but I get all PMS-ey and agitated the day before along with vertigo. My migraines last until I go to bed (usually gone in the morning) and light, sound and movement all causes intense pain. No medication helps, the only way to “cure” it is to go to bed for the night. With 3 kids I usually need to deal with it the best I can until they are in bed. I wince every time I move my head and bright light is excruciating; it’s obvious that I’m not feeling well. If she had a migraine yesterday she is much better at hiding it than I am, that’s all I can say.

    • 03/28/2013 at 8:38 am

      One more point about migraines. In my experience not eating properly will bring one on.

      Just a thought that perhaps, *if* she truly is getting migraines, they are intentionally caused by not eating. A migraine sufferer usually knows what is likely to cause one. Maybe the not eating and headaches are linked in her. Not eating causes a migraine which results in sympathy and attention for poor Jodi.

      Munchausen disease is causing illness in oneself for sympathy. Risk factors for this include having emotionally detached caretakers during childhood. Her mommy dearest sure seems emotionally detached sitting there in court every day with no facial expressions.

      • MMD
        03/28/2013 at 9:34 am

        You’re exactly right about everything. Anybody who gets migraines knows their triggers and avoids them. Plus, with the sensitivity to light, I wear sunglasses 12 months of the year – lighter ones for dark days and darker ones for sunny days. Nothing will set me off faster than the sun reflecting off the snow. She’s researched every other thing, I’m sure she’s done migraines as well.

        I’m so sorry that you have migraines Kristen – wouldn’t wish them on my worst enemy. I wouldn’t mind though if the entire defense team developed a real migraine for the entire long Easter weekend!!! sorry not nice but couldn’t help it…………………….

    Domestic violence is wrong, whether it is a man who is the victim of the abuse or a woman who is the victim. This is such a simple agreement of logic and reason, in that no one should ever suffer any act of violence. Thus and so, in repudiating violence, the consensus is that there should not be any difference in the punishment meted out to a batterer, whether that abuser is a man or a woman. In this day and age, where men and women are on equal footing, it was assumed that an expert witness called on to testify in an unbiased fashion on the evidence and facts of the matter would not favor one over the other just because the expert favored one specific gender over the other. [To each his own.] It has been recognized and fully reported that when Betty Friedan wrote The Feminine Mystique, that was published fifty years ago, women were downtrodden. So were blacks, Indians, farm workers, gays, and others. That is what brought about the African-American Civil Rights Movement and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, AIM and the Indian Bill of Rights, the grape boycott and the United Farm Workers of America, and Stonewall and Gay Pride Marches among many who had struggled for equality. In the 1960s, the apple cart was upset, and change for the better has come out of such activism.

    Since everyone was supposed to have equal Rights, the demand was put in that those who did not feel as though they had equal Rights did not want to just think about possessing them, but really wanted to live with these inherent Rights and hold them as their very own. Women especially did not want to always play second fiddle. A woman wanted to have the right to decide if she wanted to stand side-by-side by her man, or to walk behind him in a subservient position [as previous generations of women had walked]. However, men and women who worked side by side, after graduating from college with the same credentials and doing the exact same job, did not receive the same amount of money when cashing their paychecks. When a lot of noise was made about the disparity, the employers just segregated the work force, by placing the men in one unit and the women in another. Even so, the women would get the most menial tasks, and always made less even when doing the exact same job as a man or excelling over a man with the same job description. A woman could not sue her boss or fellow employee for sexual harassment. Additionally, some industries would not hire a woman for any job. There was a definite glass ceiling, and it did not take long to get there if you were a woman, at which time a woman’s career was topped off in a limbo that was inescapable.

    Men’s attitudes were thought of as patriarchal and chauvinistic where the rights of a woman’s body and mind were concerned. And, birth control and abortion could not be openly discussed by good Christian women. The Laws would not even permit a doctor to disseminate the information. Although a decent house could be purchased for ten to fifteen thousand dollars, a man had a much better chance at purchasing that house than a woman because women did not have equal access to credit. Women were under the control of men at home and at the workplace. As a matter of fact, some States would not even hire a married woman unless the woman first got permission from her husband. When women complained of female problems to their male ob-gyn, he would schedule her for a hysterectomy. If she did not need to have her sexual organs gutted, she was loaded down with Valium and sleep aids. If a wife did not want to have sex with her husband, he was permitted to rape her, because she was considered his property. There was definite gender discrimination, and spousal rape was not the only problem between the sexes. So, women fought to be recognized as equals, and within a short while could be heard with an uplifting lilt, “You’ve come a long way baby”, along with chanting “We shall overcome”. The debate is ongoing today as to gender equality — both at work and at home. But, should that be a reason to punish men? Should women be permitted to slaughter men at will because women did not have equality until a generation ago [of which still lingers the last vestiges of inequality]?

    Does a woman have the right to use the system to continue to punish men for what had occurred to other women generations ago? A lot of people have worked with others to make this world a better place. Men have marched arm-in-arm with women and vice-versa. People of all colors have marched together in order to assist one specific color, or nationality, or creed, or religion so that all can be recognized to be of equal stature. This continues to be ongoing, and it is true that so much still remains undone. For example: The crime of rape does not exist for some countries unless there is a witness other than the victim; female circumcision is again taking hold in Egypt [and other areas of the continent] without Mubarak in power, erasing all of the gains against the horrid mutilation of young girls; Thailand is not the only country with very young girls sold into prostitution; riding a public bus in India can lead to death after brutal gang rapes; a Shia father is permitted to slaughter his daughter and massacre her in-laws for marrying a Sunni man; Buddhists still die of immolation when no one listens to their plaintive cries; Taiwan is not the only land in contention; there is nary a drop of potable water in refugee camps; children are dying because money has been diverted to fill the pockets of the greedy and corrupt; and on-and-on-and-on. With real problems in the world, can it be considered proper that a woman or some women in the United States want to hold a man or men hostage and punish them for those things that occurred in the distant past, before the men were born? Will letting a woman get away with domestic violence when she slaughters a young, blameless man change the circumstance of women fifty years ago? Do these women who want to punish men think that a man can time travel to make things right?

    It took a long time to recognize that women experienced domestic violence. So, why is it going to take even longer for experts to acknowledge domestic violence occurs no matter the gender? The Laws on domestic violence are not just written to protect one gender. These Laws protect all people equally. Travis Alexander was a victim of domestic violence, and he deserves to be protected — even in death. The murderess that slaughtered him so casually, that it only took two minutes to slice him up, nearly decapitate him, and shoot him in the head, should NOT be permitted to call herself a domestic violence victim. That is an obscenity.

    An expert witness that hires herself out as a cheap whore has no entitlement and should not remain on the registry as an expert witness. Not only should her name be erased from the Court registry in all States, but her name should be brought up in a Complaint with the regulatory agency that licenses her. Perjury is a criminal offense. Working towards releasing a criminal by falsely accusing another is aiding and abetting, on top of the perjury charge. In addition, this California resident might not care that this case will have cost the taxpayers of the State of Arizona one million dollars, and that the testimony of this self-professed expert will force the State to expend more hard-strapped funds from the treasury, but the resident taxpayers do care. And, no expert should come into town from out of State to deliberately confuse a Jury in order that a criminal be loosed on the community. The adversarial system is not one where it is either the defense or the prosecution that is called the winner, with all the glory that includes the release of the criminally insane or the psychopath that is the client that the so-called winner did represent. It is reprehensible to think otherwise.

      But…. the kick in the head on this is… listen to her testimony it’s all wizard of Ox behind the curtain stuff…. she doesn’t actually say she is talking about Travis but the questions Ms Perky asks leave no doubt she is leading her through step by step each point raised in the trial so far by liar liar pants on fire pinocchio nose!!

      That’s where the psychological manipulation comes into it. That’s psychological abuse right there.

    Schaeffer :

    I have also heard several of Travis’s friends say Jodi was notorious for just showing up at PPL events she was not qualified or eligible to attend, for instance an event open only to earners at a certain level or length of service. Jodi would just breeze on in and almost dare them to tell her to leave. Because she was always hanging around Travis, they just sort of let her stay out of respect for him. She also “thought nothing of going up to the so-called stars or higher ups of the company” and flirting with them and “ask them for their autograph.” What grown woman asks for an autograph from someone in their company?

    Respectfully snipped by me:

    Yeah, Jodi was so shy and lacked self-esteem!

I apologise to people who have responded to my comments, I’ve only just read the last thread… I’ll drop them here if that’s ok. And then I’ll go read this thread! In future though I’ll try to keep up and use ‘reply’! (My only excuse is I’m single mum to two young boys…)

    donchais, again i love your work! Some of the other cases you are following are just too sad for me to even read…I don’t know how you do it.

    I think the only good thing about this protracted trial is that the public has had the chance to ‘get to know’ the real Travis, through media with his family and friends, through videos and audio of him, and we can’t help liking the guy. We know he wasn’t perfect, but he’s like many young men we know. He’s an ordinary guy, maybe not totally emotionally mature yet, but not deserving of this horrible fate. You feel so sorry for him, his life stolen. He had no reason to be any kind of violent domestic abuser. He had everything going for him, the world at his feet, he was the alpha male, girls loved him, but guys worshipped him too. He wasn’t known by anyone else to have a bad temper and was loved by all who knew him. She wanted to own him and couldn’t, so he had to die. Jodi has no remorse, and she never will, because she’s secretly still glad she killed him. I reckon if Jodi is sentenced to jail, she’ll just keep spewing out self-serving, history-rewriting, Travis-character-assassinating interviews for the rest of our days. Perhaps the jury will decide killing her is the only way to make her stop lying.

    vickiee – shucks, thanks..!
    Syntara my fellow Aussie, ta!
    Also Lisa M and Tracy A, that’s kind. You guys are all a great bunch of people.

    jad – awesome list, I had missed some of those, and I still don’t get how Lisa Daidone ended up a defense witness…
    I can’t believe the prosecution didn’t call any of Travis’ friends or family to provide histories? Or is that still to come?
    I’m very much looking forward to Matt McCartney, if he’s still coming…

Sorry, I can’t remember whose comment it was about Jodi being a black widow spider, but in that analogy, I totally see both Samuels and LaViolette* as mesmerised flies, stuck in her web, exhibiting the insect version of Stockholm Syndrome….( *Arias being able to work her charm on members of both sexes – see also Truejustice – omg, lols.)

    Btw I feel for those of you who have bravely talked about their personal histories. Those of you here who are survivors are very strong people!

      GiGi I love your comments. I say put em anywhere you can and we’ll devour them! Don’t stress. I have a cushy job atm so for me it’s easy I’m mainly in research. Plus for me being here is actually working in that research capacity! How cushy is that???

      I’m sure everyone here has varying degrees of spare time so we all understand! *stops speaking for everyone* sorry!

      Hi Everyone! Gigi this is so eloquently worded, “I think the only good thing about this protracted trial is that the public has had the chance to ‘get to know’ the real Travis, through media with his family and friends, through videos and audio of him, and we can’t help liking the guy. We know he wasn’t perfect, but he’s like many young men we know.”
      Thank you for that.

      I have a hard time keeping up and I am retired since June last. Cannot imagine with 2 children these days. I am the black widow and would love to be under her desk and bite her about 5 times or more. Geesshh such venom so early in the morning. I am just tired of all her lies and stories and blah blah blah and now the “headache/migraine” (no offense MMD) but nothing about her is real. And, yet, here she is manipulating the court because of the DP charge, but most of all because of her being a psychopath which suits her just fine.
      DP, Karma, may they come hand in hand at the same time.

    Saw this statement today while looking about…
    “To me, the lack of injuries Arias suffered as she murdered Travis shows that even when he is being murdered, Travis did not have it in him to hurt Arias to save his own life.”
    I agree completely and hope that the jury does as well! Just thought I’d share.

    • 03/28/2013 at 10:24 am

      He didn’t have a chance, he only could struggle for his life. That chest wound was fatal. He was bleeding out from that moment it severed a ventrical I think. OOOOOOO oooooo how my anger rises when I think of what she did!! and further with how she is lying about it. Not just her ability to lie but the actual nature of lies themselves

      Truly no soul. Nobody could do that all of it if they had one shred of decency… it’s all about her ooooooooo *fresh curare batch*

        I know there was no time… 62 seconds would only allow for self defense. Guess I didn’t agree completely with the statement. Just wanted to get across that her lack of wounds is telling and I really hope that the jury sees it. Their questions for her point in that direction but you never know what people are actually thinking. I never want to see her allowed out and back in the public, where is can to continue on whatever quest she was starting with the new knifes and gun the day she was arrested.

      • 03/28/2013 at 10:33 am

        But no no I agree you are correct and it’s sooooo sad. It illustrates just how quickly she ambushed him. There is no way she should have been able to do that.. I mean Alice in Wonderland testified to that remember? She pointed out how hard it is for a woman to fight back physically?

    • 03/28/2013 at 11:30 am

      she wouldnt have known that, she would have been clueless about Alice’s testimony. She cant work us out as much as we can’t work her out. Well she can if she copies is all.

      BUT….. she may have been encouraged to have a “migraine”. Very possible with the way the defense seems to be handling this case. Very possible indeedy doody

        No. I doubt it. Im sure JW told her but this is the type of things you have to explain to them.

        You’d be surprised what they don’t understand. Bundy wasn’t like that he was extremely intelligent. This goes to the number plate on the car upside down, and the ninja story where she didn’t realise ppl would say “why didn’t you get help”

      • 03/28/2013 at 12:27 pm

        ya it wasnt about her… she didnt realise what it was for. she zoned out just like that vidseo where Travis is relating the story of the gun to is it his head? unlike us she cant empathise with the feelings that kind of story elicits in the rest of us. She doesn’t get it.

    03/28/2013 at 11:38 am

    If anyone wanted to mislead (by using dating violence as a backdrop), the individual could falsely relate a story of abuse to benefit as a victim, like Jodi Arias has — the benefit being an excuse (or get out of jail free card) for outrageous conduct when killing the person alleged to have somehow beaten her or who had allegedly been verbally or emotionally abusive. Then, a story could be manufactured and told by a person professing herself to be some kind of an expert on the subject of domestic violence [or dating violence]. In this case, the domestic violence would only be tied into the dating relationship between Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander, since there never was a domestic relationship [as they never established residency as domestic partners]. The Arizona Law in effect at the time, where the crime was committed in Arizona, would define just what is considered to be a dating relationship. Regardless, an expert witness can not make up a dating relationship where the Law will not allow that expert to go.

    If Alyce Dunn LaViolette, M.S., wants to provide expert witness testimony in the case, she must overcome her strong bias towards females, and she must recognize that males can also be victims of domestic violence as the term relates to dating violence [in the State of Arizona in 2008]. In the Introduction to a book (written by the person listed as an expert witness by the criminal lawyers for Jodi Arias’ defense team), under the caption “Statistics on Violence Against Women,” it was written “By the mid-1980s, domestic violence had reached such epidemic proportions that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia began to treat partner abuse like any other epidemic by gathering statistics”. [Citation omitted] On the following page [4], there is a marked pronouncement that the book would be excluding certain data that would benefit males, and the book would be biased towards one specific gender rather than be gender neutral when addressing the topic of domestic violence. This is even after the statement was included that “These data suggested that wives were at least as aggressive as their mates”. Instead, the book would center [as one of the statements of that paragraph was read] on discarding treatment of men and women in an equal fashion. Rather, in an overly sexist and feminist tone, the line of reasoning spewed was “The gender mutuality asserted by the report sounded a battle cry to battered women’s advocates, already embroiled in the controversy over gender bias in society”.

    Then, reference was made to Appendix A, as it seemed the book would center on a biased role when studying victimization, in that it was stated the findings of the National Violence Against Women SURVEY WOULD NOT SUPPORT GENDER MUTUALITY. Because the book made claims that 85% of domestic violence victims were female and one-third of male perpetrators also threatened to kill their female partners, the innocent male victim would not be included in this book (although the co-authors did not seem to mind the portrayal of the male as the aggressor and abuser, in the book) that had been purported to detail abuse, in a seemingly unbiased and non prejudiced way (TO WHICH THE AUTHOR WOULD BE ABLE TO TESTIFY IN COURT PROCEEDINGS AS AN UNBIASED EXPERT WITNESS WITH THE ABILITY TO SPEAK THE TRUTH ABOUT THE SITUATION SHE HAD TAKEN AN OATH TO UPHOLD).

    Another claim made in the book, titled “It Could Happen to Anyone, Why Battered Women Stay”, co-authored by Alyce Dunn LaViolette, M.S., [the expert witness HIRED by the criminal lawyers, but billed to an Arizona taxpayer account] was that “Injury data dispel any notion of gender equivalency”. It was reported that “An estimated two to four million women are beaten [annually] by their husbands or boyfriends, more than are hurt in auto accidents, rapes, or muggings”. However, there is no data provided for the male gender in order to appropriately understand the male’s role as either the aggressor or the victim or both. There is a quote that is specific towards a finding that “about half of female victims of partner aggression claim some sort of injury, and about 20 % seek medical assistance”. But, there is no correlating data that would show the percentage of male victims. The tales told by the co-authors in this book failed to document any trauma or injury for even one male victim, as though there were no such thing as a male victim in acts of domestic violence. Appendix A DOES contain statistics that include the male as a victim, but the authors TOTALLY IGNORED this fact.

    On the last page of the Foreword, titled It Could Happen to Anyone, a woman by the name of Claire M. Renzetti encapsulated the view of the co-authors of the book, stating the limited subject matter to be “we must reevaluate our current policy goals for meeting the needs of battered women and addressing men’s violence” (as though there could be no conception that there could have been a battered man whose needs should have been met while addressing a woman’s violence). In the acknowledgment, one of the two co-authors is mentioned and described as “Ola Barnett . . . had this unique opportunity to contribute to society’s efforts to eliminate family violence”. Then, in ignorance, she described the book’s bias towards the female gender [and therefore the prejudice against the male gender], as follows “Ola wishes to thank Alyce for her dedication and advocacy on behalf of battered women . . . Ola wants to call attention to Alyce’s success in making battered women’s case histories come alive in this book”. Again, there is no mention of the male as a possible victim of domestic violence, and this intent appears to have been acknowledged. Therefore, a deliberate course seemed to have been taken to ignore the statistics and the entirety of the facts when these co-authors made a decision to cherry-pick the material in order to exclude men as possible victims of domestic violence.

    Another biased statement in this particular book, when the expert witness and co-author must acknowledge the gist of the case to which she would be testifying, is “Homicide is the least likely outcome of a domestic assault, but it is the most feared and the primary basis for formulating criminal justice policy. Women in America are killed in overwhelming numbers by the men who profess to love them”. That seemed to be a huge leap to only include women when addressing the threat of homicide in a domestic violence situation, especially [in this case of violence where payment would be for an expert’s account] where the real victim of the dating violence (TRAVIS ALEXANDER) could be a male. At least one FBI statistic was thrown in, but it was from a period of 1983 – 1988, which is far from a recent statistic and did not take into consideration the entire spectrum of abusive situations experienced by both genders. While it is the prerogative of the criminal lawyers to hire an expert in a field that could help to exonerate their client, that witness can not be so biased as to largely ignore the evidence in the case while purportedly testifying to the entire subject matter of her expertise. The subject matter of [domestic violence or] dating violence is the only matter that needs to be fully explained in a case where the accused has confessed to the crime but has alleged innocence because of being forced to act in self-defense because of the threat of harm from a pattern of abuse rising out of a dating situation treated like domestic violence.

    Of course, there do not have to be any case studies of males as either domestic violence victims or dating violence victims in the book, because it seems quite clear that these two women co-authors did not intend to address the fact that women abuse men and can be just as violent [as men can be to women] when abusing the men in their lives. When writing a book for profit, their motivation would hardly be one to present the entire truth of the matter if the subject matter is geared for a specific audience. However, such a predilection to ignore one-half of the population when entertaining a limited audience in a lop-sided view of an issue would definitely not make either author worthy of belonging to any Court Registry, to provide testimony as an expert witness that did not equally recognize both the male and the female genders.

    Just look at the Jodi Arias case, where she tried to isolate Mr. Alexander from his friends and business Associates, made up stories about him, used falsehoods to deliberately make him look bad, tried to get him to react to taunts of other men through ridicule, dated several other men behind his back, tried to lure others to conspire with some of his friends to keep her dating secret, used his friends and his roommates, borrowed money from him that she did not even intend to pay back, blew up the engine of his BMW (of which the expense to Mr. Alexander was never reimbursed), hacked into his private correspondence (through his FaceBook, his MySpace Account, and his private e-mail), wrote e-mails to friends of his pretending she was him, hacked into his bank account, {{possibly manipulated his Pre-Paid Legal financial situation, by changing information about his upline as well as the persons and entities [like municipalities] he was signing [that could have by wicked design been transferred into the account of another person on another team]}}, stalked him, showed up at his house [inside] uninvited on numerous occasions, followed him on dates together with the girl he was seeing, slashed the tires of his car [twice], threatened the life of a woman he was dating (by sending a threatening e-mail [which is a federal crime]), slashed the tires of the car of the girl he was dating, and then killed him in the most gruesome fashion imaginable. After Jodi Arias murdered her former boyfriend (a man she had not dated for over eight months), she continued to abuse him by defaming him, by reporting that it was she who lent him money, it was she who he tried to isolate from her many men friends, it was she who received the nasty e-mails from him without cause, it was she who suffered mental abuse he cruelly exacted, it was she who suffered physical abuse at his hand, it was she who had been humiliated and used through his acts of sexual deviancy, it was she who would suffer shame and embarrassment for exposure at her accusation that she had been dating a pedophile, it was she who was the monogamous one, and it was she who had no alternative but to savagely kill him because he made her fearful.

    These are the same self-serving stories Jodi Arias tried to portray to the Jurors throughout her sworn testimony that were found to be full of contradictions and inconsistencies. The Jurors themselves found the testimony questionable, and their questions to her showed nonacceptance of what she had portrayed because of the discrepancies and pointed out omissions. Furthermore, Jodi Arias had been revealed to be a consummate and pathological liar, and certain of the expert witnesses paid by the State taxpayers have been shown to have provided testimony that also had glaring inconsistencies when supporting the inconsistencies and contradictions of the testimony provided by the documented pathological liar, Jodi Arias. This critical fact has been reported in all forms of major media and has become the cause célèbre of many of the Internet blogs. A person that is supposed to testify in this particular case at this Trial would indeed be living under a rock if it were alleged that this was not known. Jodi Arias’ portrayal of Travis Alexander, layered with her own characteristics and her own qualities, is one so convoluted that a person that believes these stories is not one who should be paid as a knowledgeable expert.

    If one is not familiar with the case through face-to-face meetings with Jodi Arias and actual research into the [nonexistence of the] dating arrangement of the couple to which an opinion would be formulated concerning [domestic violence or] dating violence, one should not offer expert testimony. (This could bring a charge of accepting payment under false pretense, wherein not only would the money have to be paid back but criminal charges could be pursued for taking the taxpayers’ money knowing there was not an entitlement.) Since the alleged charge involves two people, the roles of both would have had to have been examined to testify TRUTHFULLY about dating violence in the case.

    To totally ignore the fact that men can indeed be victims of domestic violence or dating violence does a disservice to reputable studies by eminent scholars and valued social workers. At this time in our history, when presenting oneself to be an expert witness with an expertise and specialization in the field of domestic violence, there is no room for discrimination on gender. If Alyce Dunn LaViolette, M.S., wants to provide expert witness testimony in the case, she must overcome her strong bias towards females and prejudice against males — and, she must recognize that males (like Travis Alexander) can also be victims of [domestic violence or] dating violence.

    LMAO! 🙂
    I hate these long recesses because I want this thing to be over so bad I can’t see straight. hodi has found a way to abuse us all….but I just know we’ll hang in there for Travis and his family and as Gigi said, at least we’ve got this time to sorta get to know Travis. I’ve started working on something I hope to post within the next few days…think it’s very interesting…plus I guess I could do a huge grocery shop…and, something else but I forget…ack.

    MMD :

    Family of Law :
    My son is a 1st year law student at University of Chicago Law School. His Capital Punishment in America course spent half of the quarter discussing how the introduction of social media (video, text, email, etc) has dramitically changed how many cases are tried- it’s a whole new world! Subsequently, my son deactivated his Facebook account!

    Smart man! As far as I’m concerned people provide way, way too much info on their Facebook pages that anyone can see. They can pretty well learn anything they want about them and the pictures, especially of little children, is imo, simply a paradise for pedophiles. Don’t and will never have a FB page.

    Hi MMD:) I hope you’re headache is gone- hopefully today Juan will make you feel 100%!

    I’m amazed by what my nieces, nephews, friends share on FB. I got on FB when my son got one in High School, I figured “if I can’t beat ’em, join ’em” (and spy on him). When my son was in college, friends would post pics of him, with a beer in his hand, or the telltale Solo cup- and I would call him and tell him to get rid of it- but what I know now is that even deleted pics can still be located by employers (or potential employers). It’s all so creepy, and it can be dangerous. His deactivated account can still be searched, but at least no future damage can be done.

    Morning/afternoon FOL. Yes I feeling much better thank you. Just the lingering feeling from being drugged yesterday.

    I so agree. The one thing I learned years ago was that anything that can be produced can be reproduced. I keep telling that to a friend who is having an affair – doesn’t listen. I wouldn’t even sell my old computers or give them to someone. I’d just smash them to smithereens. Being the pack rat that I am, that’s kinda why I have 4 laptops lying around. 😦

    JM gets called on pic taking but that senior skank can hypothetically bring up Travis’s upbringing and that is ok. Soooooo, sooooo wrong. Put them back under the rock they came from. 😦

    44 hours at 250 an hour, She read “dr Samuels” reports. 250 an hour to do that also! Thisis a gravy train for her! Who else would hire her for thatr amount of time?I bet the “offer” she had to turn down didn’t have nearly the hours packed in luike this one.

    It is totally INAPPROPRIATE for a consultant to buy gifts (books) to a criminal defendant they are supposed to be INDEPENDENTLY EVALUATING.
    Why not just send her materials that will help “educate” Jodi to try to come across as a domestic violence victim.

    Syntara — how common is it that a true psychopath can rope a trained professional into their universe, and get them to wholeheartedly believe in their stories, their universe, their version of EVERYTHING? Are Samuels and LaViolette just really unprofessional and/or unqualified, or have they just been bought off? How is it that virtually no one outside Jodi’s “gang” and paid supporters (i.e. defense team) can buy her line of crap, chapter and verse? I would appreciate your professional input.

    • 03/28/2013 at 2:28 pm

      Veey common. Robert Hare says even after 35 plus years he can take him up to 6 months..

      but ….. these ppl have evidence.. I mean all the interviews and lies she already told. So in this case it’s ignorance rather than starting out not having any red flags. In this case there is no excuse.

    Willmott is coming across as extremely unprofessional when JM’s objections are sustained by the judge.
    Juries pick up on that kind of behavior by counsel.

    It’s also a sign of bad lawyering to have to keep (obviously) prompting your witness with the answer you desire on direct examination AND to give your witness an “out” if they answer incorrectly, both of which WilMott has a bad habit of doing.

    Not impressive.

    This is testimony by plagiarism, just like Samuels’ was. If I were a juror, I would find an expert much more believable if their testimony was NOT a verbatim repeat of Jodi’s lies. It reminds me of when a group of school kids get caught cheating because they all just happen to miss the same 5 problems on a math test.

    Also, this witness was lulled into a false sense of security while she droned on and on and on and on about herself for the first couple of days.

    The jurors are about to be questioned about what, if anything, they have seen/witnessed outside the courtroom vis-a-vis JM posing for photos and/or signing autographs in or around the courthouse grounds. (I know you all have big crushes on JM, so don’t shoot this messanger, but he really ought to know better than to do that. Why?? BECAUSE what if a juror who is ON HIS SIDE and would find this defendant guilty of 1st degree murder DID witness such an event?? Do you know what could happen??

    Notice Jodi kept everything she could get her hands on even well before the trial.. the sex recording… who was controlling who… yeah I think we can see clesrly on that one. Where did these emails come from? when she had the password to Travis’ account and she made copies of them or sent them to herself so she had copies???

      They were not on the witness lists. But Skye came on the stand to clarify about talking to the prosecution. At that time they were ordered not to watch/read or talk to anyone about the case, in case they were called. Now she is and I’m super excited!

    here’s the link to some video: (if no posted before)

    http://www.kpho.com/story/21806374/arias-defense-team-accuses-prosecution-of-misconduct.

    Don’t know why it matters if it was in newspapers. on-line etc: The jurors shouldn’t be looking at these anyway. However, If they saw it in front of the court house . I don’t really see how a picture is pros. misconduct. He didn’t make any statements — did he ?? PUKE .. this is just another ploy to get this declared a mistrial. This has would make it the defenses third or forth attempt to have a mistrial declared.
