    How are you doing donchais??????? You’ve been on my mind. Sending xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo from all of us in the sandbox. Take care of yourself my friend!

    When I first looked at the footprints picture, I thought it was a morbid display of Travis’back. Shame on me.

    Jeez, who could have ever predicted that Jodi would play the sour grapes routine? Interviews? Who would have thunk it?

  5. 05/09/2013 at 12:44 pm

    Oh, she’s not done yet…What a monster.

    Who do you think could play Samuels and LaViolette in Lifetime movie? I’m thinking Gary Busey and then either Helen Mirren or Meryl Streep.

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 12:48 pm

      I think you’re pretty smart! They all sound like excellent choices to me 🙂

    • HJ Madison
      05/09/2013 at 12:51 pm

      Kathy Bates for LaLa … and Gary Busey is good! Or, who is the guy from Mini-Me, Verne Troyer….

      • 05/09/2013 at 12:55 pm

        Ooh Kathy Bates is good. I don’t know Verne. And who would play our Martinez? I vote for him with him getting billing as ‘and appearing as himself’

      • Lisa M
        05/09/2013 at 1:18 pm

        Kathy Bates, ha! She’d do such a great job, but of course she’s an Oscar winner. I don’t think she’d do Lifetime. 🙂

    • Margie
      05/09/2013 at 12:58 pm

      The whole time Samuels was getting grilled by Juan, I was picturing Wallace Shawn (google it, you’ll recognize him), but I don’t think he’d fly in a Lifetime movie.

      • 05/09/2013 at 1:03 pm

        Perfectamente big time!!

      • Family of Law
        05/09/2013 at 1:13 pm

        Lol! We are zinging on the same wave! Wallace Shawn IS perfect casting!

    • Family of Law
      05/09/2013 at 1:02 pm

      I like HJ’s casting of Kathy Bates for LaLa, and I submit Wallace Shawn (“Vizzini” in “Princess Bride” for Dr. Dodgy.

        i mentioned this on eggtree last week. for nurmi it absolutely has to the guy – in costume – who played Earl (the father) in the old program ‘Dinosaurs’. check out some vids on youtube.

    • HJ Madison
      05/09/2013 at 1:07 pm

      Verne Troyer is the bald guy, about 3 ft’ tall — the Minnie Me guy – very funny and looks a lot like Samuals!

      • Lisa M
        05/09/2013 at 1:19 pm

        But who would play Nurmi and Wilmot? 🙂

      • Margie
        05/09/2013 at 1:30 pm

        Nurmi could be played by Jorge Garcia (Hurley from Lost) but I’m not sure if he’s tall enough. Nurmi was a BIG man!

    • 05/09/2013 at 2:10 pm

      I think William Shatner would make a good Samuels and could see Richard Dreyfuss playing Juan…lol

      • MMD
        05/09/2013 at 2:26 pm

        Shatner would make a perfect Samuels Mel!!! Good call! No one can even come close to portraying JM is all his juanderfulness, Trust me kids 🙄

    • Bethany
      05/09/2013 at 4:31 pm

      What about Jason alexander from Seinfeld for dr. Samuels? Julia Louise Dreyfus could play Whilmott who is also from Seinfeld.

    Hi MMD, waves back darling. ive been busy working. I’ve been wondering if MM stands for Mary Margaret?
    What was the mock jury about?
    Btw. I saw one of your posts saying you had four feeds and HLN on yesterday. Holy smokes, how many computers do you have in your pei abode. That made me chuckle.😄😄

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 12:51 pm

      nope – My Mother’s Daughter!!! :LOL: We were trying to do the jury’s job for them since they were taking so long, using just the facts in evidence. We didn’t get very far 😦 but I think it’s what got the real jury kickstarted 😀

      • Family of Law
        05/09/2013 at 1:15 pm

        I’ve wondered this for quite some time!

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 12:53 pm

      4 laptops but only one works, one is kinda sorta a backup but it overheats and shuts itself off. Nope I just had the 4 livestreams going on my laptop all except one muted, in case they froze or lost the feed, which happened. Plus I had HLN on. (and Margaret is my first name)

      • Anniefreeze
        05/09/2013 at 1:00 pm

        Margaret. 😇😇 I was half right.

      • MMD

        Yes you were Annie 🙂

    05/09/2013 at 12:51 pm

    Quick question… if the prosecution wants the death penalty, and the defendant wants the death penalty, why even go through the rest of this process. Or if the process must be followed, can’t she just get up there and say she wants the DP and get things wrapped up more quickly? I believe her DP statement is pure manipulation, since I’m sure SHE believes she will get a lesser sentence during a retrial. But didn’t she just sort of stick her foot in it with everybody NOT on the jury by making that statement? Either she means it and will do everything possible to make it happen, or she’s being manipulative and anything short of her flat out stating to the jury that she wants the DP will prove that. Thoughts?

    • HJ Madison
      05/09/2013 at 12:54 pm

      Exactly … and when she asks for the DP she must also state she has NO INTENTION of ever filing an appeal! HAHAHA That will call her bluff!

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 12:58 pm

      Whenever I look at your posts I think it’s me – so confusing!!!!! Anyway, I think it is all a manipulation and I don’t know how the AZ system works but Timothy McVeigh said cancel all the appeals and just put me to death and they did. But he had already been sentenced.

      • Margie
        05/09/2013 at 1:00 pm

        MMD, are you a “Margie” too? It’s so weird when you find someone else with that name because it’s fairly uncommon.

      • HJ Madison
        05/09/2013 at 1:03 pm

        Well, I think that guy knew it was hopeless. And, he was likely the most despised person within the walls of his prison, subject to all sorts of threats — like Dahmer. Better to let the State do it than your fellow inmates.

      • MMD
        05/09/2013 at 1:06 pm

        Yes but that’s not what MMD stand for – see upstairs. Growing up I didn’t know any other Mgt’s but the Island is overflowing with them. I usually go by Margie but I get downright rude when people pronounce it as if the g is a j and I always say, no that is short for Marjorie, which is not my name. Drives me nuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus, I’m a red, black and white person and I truly don’t like purple and you even ended up with my colours 😆

      • MMD
        05/09/2013 at 1:11 pm

        Yes HJ and we all know what happened to Dalmer!!!!! He was soooooooooooooooooo creepy, kinda like a JA maybe 😈

      • Margie
        05/09/2013 at 1:16 pm

        Funny MMD, because I AM a Marjorie and bristle when people address me with the “g” pronunciation of Margie. It’s only logical, right?

      • Lisa M
        05/09/2013 at 1:20 pm

        Yes, and Aileen Wournos did the same too. Or at least after a certain point she told her lawyers to drop their appeals.

      • MMD
        05/09/2013 at 1:39 pm

        Margie – all I can say is it makes perfect sense to you and me but OBVIOUSLY not to so many others 🙄

    • truejustice
      05/09/2013 at 1:33 pm

      In Az the only one who can give her the DP is a jury. The judge can remove the DP but she cannot impose it. If they skip her due process, the conviction will almost surely be overturned.

      I THINK(could be completely wrong for az) today they will just go through the aggravation phase (of the penalty phase) where they decide if they deem the crime was especially heinous and crue – which will further determine if she is eligible for the DP. Should be short and to the point … dont see to much to discuss there. Next they go into the sentencing phase – that’s where they decide life or death (if found dp eligible in aggravation phase) .

      During that final penalty phase – she can at that point ask her family and friends to not take the stand in her behalf and ask her lawyers to basically not present evidence on her behalf. However that will further delay .. as they will have to send her through a series of psych evals to ensure that she is competent to make the decision, not doing it because depressed, mental illness , etc. and that she is fully aware/ and accepting of the ramifications . At some point prior to sentencing I believe she will also have the opportunity to speak on her own behalf … at this time she would ask the jury for the DP.

      • Margie
        05/09/2013 at 2:08 pm

        Thanks! I had a feeling it would be more complicated than a mutual agreement between prosecution and defendant.

      • 05/09/2013 at 2:34 pm

        TJ…….thanks for the explanation.
        I’ve been meaning to ask if the Judge had to follow the jury’s recommendation if they sentence her to Death. I know in some states judges can instead sentence to LWOP but I wasn’t certain about AZ.
        Also you’re right, JA will have a chance to address the jury. I don’t see her Not taking the opportunity to get in the last word.

  10. 05/09/2013 at 12:52 pm

    Thank you MMD. Morning to you and all. I have to run out and pick up my dog from Vets. Will be back in a few. P.S. anybody know how to post pictures here?

      • 05/09/2013 at 1:04 pm

        Swelling in one ear. Found her abandoned. No telling her age. Best picture comparison I could find is a Mountain Cur. Super obediant, super protective. Super sweet. Love her.

    I bet JA wishes she killed in Florida, she probably would have been acquitted and walked out a free woman. Sorry in advance if I am offending anyone in fla but our whole nation is still skeptical about our justice system since the Casey trial.

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 1:00 pm

      Did you see Judge Perry’s interview where even HE was surprised with the verdict?????

      • Anniefreeze
        05/09/2013 at 1:02 pm

        No. Wow, I did not know that judges could give their opposing opinions . Wow. I hope we hear from judge sherry someday.

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 1:02 pm

      Well it always seems that if anything really, truly strange is going to happen, it happens in Fla. It probably happens in other places but maybe we just don’t hear about it. Just look at John Goodman getting a new trial! That makes me want to hurl!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Your answer makes perfect sense. I’m learning so much from you and appreciate your willingness to tutor me and others.

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 1:13 pm

      We should be expecting to see the cute Dr. Horne testify again today about what a cruel death that Travis went through and how long it took for him to die 😦

      • 05/09/2013 at 1:14 pm

        well yay on seeing Dr Horn.. but omg booooo on hearing that again…… it’s etched in my brain.. especially the bit he was alive when she slit his throat.. omg it seriuosly makes me want to throw up and I have to push it out of my head.. how how could she do that??? how could she THINK of doing it!!! rhetorical!!!!!!!

    • 05/09/2013 at 1:18 pm

      Katiecoolady (SP?) said on the radio show posted upstairs that today will probably be the hardest day on the family because Mr.M will be really driving home to the jury the cruelty that Travis experienced that day and and how he suffered
      😥

      • 05/09/2013 at 1:21 pm

        going to seriously need some cocktail mixes ready.. I know you all probably think Im some kind of alchoholic by now… but honestly.. prior to this trial I rarely touch it!!! but stuff in this trial makes me just like having a drink here with me!!! Must be like Linus with his security blankey!

    (Brought over from MMD)

    Family of Law – first of all congrats on living the night. Second, congrats on being a grandmother to your new kittycats. Mama’s Boy is gonna be in his glory with all those little ones around. As for my babies, I have 3 shih tzu, 2 girls and a boy and they are all adorable!!!!! And they have short hair, none of this long hair with a ponytail on the top of the head. My kids would leave home if I ever tried to do that to them. Usually they come home from the groomers with a teeny tiny bow on their ear around Christmas that most times doesn’t even make it into the house. Definitely not fru fru dogs, just my babies
    ______________________________________________________________________
    Lol! MMD! Yes, I’m so relieved that I “Didn’t wake up dead”! Although I just noted in the mirror that I have residual headphone indents all along my face…
    Your babies sound adorable, and might I say, I’m so glad they are not fru frus!!! I once saw a pair of Great Danes wearing mini bows, I whispered an apology to them. They sound like great companions, and they’re lucky to have you!
    “Mama’s Boy” has been a little out of sorts, I truly believe he misses his buddy, Mama cat. As soon as she is a bit more recovered, I will bring her to visit him in his stall 🙂

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 1:18 pm

        05/09/2013 at 1:28 pm

        Don’t assume the pose… 😦 I had to move her into our tack room just prior to delivery for her safety… I can close the door at night and keep her and the kittens safe from coyotes and fox- they’ve been known to gain access to the main areas of the barn by tunneling! They’re very crafty (even without mini pencils!)

      Lol Syn! Still in the “fugly” rat phase… Yet utterly adorable! It’s their little ears that get me 🙂 I’d love to see the Dad- cos none of the kittens are all grey like the Mama- we have the variety pack of “tim tams”! The Mama is so loving with them, it’s quite the sight…

      • MMD
        05/09/2013 at 1:35 pm

        or in Canada we’d call them Timbits 🙂

  19. 05/09/2013 at 1:28 pm

    Syn, (yet) another question. Sorry!

    I am assuming the Her Heinous will be sitting in the courtroom today. I know the term “duper’s delight” has been mentioned numerous time by the mental health experts on all the shows. Is this something she can control or will she be on her best post-fox-interview behavior? I would love for the camera to catch her in the act.

    • 05/09/2013 at 1:30 pm

      Im sorry Im not familiar with that term. Must be an americanism.. can you explain it.. I could guess but prefer clarity. Seems to be some colloquial term for a more clinical one.

      • Family of Law
        05/09/2013 at 1:44 pm

        There are a few body language experts that appear on HLN- the term “Duper’s Delight” is used when they reference JA’s smug smirk, saying that it shows she enjoys trying to sell people on her lies.

      • 05/09/2013 at 1:46 pm

        “Another very strong characteristic to look for (or listen for) is what Dr. Hare refers to as “duping delight.” It is as if the psychopath has no need to lie or purpose in lying, the pleasure is attained through merely pulling one over on somebody.”

        I just copied and pasted when I googled it.

        Can she stop herself from feeling (demonstrating) this or is it a reaction she cannot control?

      • 05/09/2013 at 1:54 pm

        ahh ok this is what I called controlling perception in my earilier post. I never knew Dr Hare refers to it as dupers delight.

    Happy Day After “Just-Verdict” Day!
    Pork!!! Thank you Robert. Why didn’t i think of that since i’m so dang smart. Krap! Well, so i called my Texas Dad (the one 1/2 resp. 4 me being here) and asked him to please cook us up an army portion of his famous, melt-in-your-mouth, pork ribs, & he said ok. So he had to get up like 3 or 4 times during the night hours to check on the low/slow-cooking pig bits, to make sure they’re done to perfection. (brought rolls of napkins, too!) So, to that, i’m adding the following:
    For starters i’ve got Grilled Artichoke with homemade Remoulade Sauce.
    Then with the ribs, please help yourself to
    *slow-cooked Borracho Beans with tons of good stuff like garlic, green beans & dark beer
    *Potato Salad like you like it (my grandma’s recipe)
    *warmed Potato Rolls with Real, unsalted Butter
    *made-to-order Fruit Smoothies (w/ or w/o the fun stuff added), including vitamin & antioxidant boosters, etc.
    And of course we have a full open bar. Order anything you’d like. It’s on the house. Live entertainment of your choice is on the way. No aggravation here…that’ll be in Phoenix today. And it will be ever so clear (i pray) and so cheers, guys! Let’s eat! After all the evil thing in Maricopa Co. would want us to eat cake. (btw we have a good ole’ spring thunderstorm goin’ on here…could get bad @ 3:00, they say…i hope lightening flashes and thunder rolls when Travis’s attorney roars for him today!!!) luv u guys

    WIS –

    Hope that you and DH had a wonderful celebration last night!

    I have a question for you. The defense filed a motion on 5/3 for DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR DISCOVERY OF VICTIM IMPACT EVIDENCE. I have never heard of that ever being agreed to. It just seems so wrong and I hope the judge does NOT allow this. Have you ever heard of this being allowed???

    Then today they filed another motion – DEFENDANT’S REQUEST THAT VICTIM IMPACT EVIDENCE BE PRESENTED VIA VIDEOTAPE

    Seriously?!

    • Jo
      05/09/2013 at 2:52 pm

      I had an experience with that. Family member was murdered in another state (I attended the trial). I was asked by the parent to write an impact statement letter to the judge. I did so putting my heart and soul into the letter NOT specifically asking for a particular sentence but speaking of the impact upon the murdered child’s (she was 18) mother and the family. I thought it was between myself and the judge. I found out that my letter, as well as other friends and family members, were turned over to the defense. Something I had written was referenced by the killer’s parents. I was shocked. The mother of the murdered child was astute enough to think this might happen because of a previous letter during pre-trial that was turned over to defense. She did not give anything to any judge or prosecutor. When she gave her impact statement, it was the first time anyone heard it. I also know that once it becomes public, these letters can be turned over to anyone requesting them. Part of my letter to the judge was put in a book written about the case. I live a thousand miles from this state and the author even sent me a letter asking to interview me. I declined. I was upset that the author (and anyone else who might want it) had access to my address. So I am guessing that this may be allowed. I don’t know if AZ has a “Sunshine Law” which is what allowed the letters to be shared. My heart just goes out to the Alexander family and the thought that the defense would have access to their thoughts and be allowed to respond to them after the awful way their family was treated is almost unbearable.

        One has to be so versed to get around the system rules….why in God’s name should a convicted killer be given advance notice of anything the victim’s family wishes to say? Staggers the mind, sometimes.

    • WhereIsSHE
      05/09/2013 at 3:02 pm

      Thanks, Nancy=) It was a wonderful evening! (And also a JUANderful evening!)

      Yes, seriously.
      Depending on the state’s rules of criminal procedure, which vary somewhat from state to state, it is standard practice for defense counsel to seek “discovery” of any and all evidence that will be presented against their client. The “confrontation clause” in the U.S. Constitution supports the discovery (i.e. disclosure) so that the convicted defendant has an opportunity to challenge the veracity of the statement (or some portion thereof), because the court will be considering this evidence against the defendant for purposes of imposing the sentence he or she will receive.

      For example, in Texas, the rule is:
      Before sentencing the defendant, the court shall permit the defendant or his counsel a reasonable time to read the statement, excluding the victim’s name, address, and telephone number, comment on the statement, and, with the approval of the court, introduce testimony or other information alleging a factual inaccuracy in the statement.

      • WhereIsSHE
        05/09/2013 at 3:07 pm

        NOTE that the NAME and ADDRESS and TELEPHONE NUMBER of the victim/person who prepared the victim impact statement is REDACTED (removed) so that the defendant does not have access to this information.

  28. NancyB
    • WhereIsSHE
      05/09/2013 at 3:13 pm

      Hmmm…. Without a complete copy of the Motion that was filed it is difficult to comment. However, it appears from the court docket (which may just be an erroneous description entered by the clerk) that the defense is seeking to have this evidence admitted via videotape?? Or perhaps it is just that there are already, in existence, videotaped Victim Impact Statements, and the defense is seeking “discovery” (disclosure) of those statements. (Again, sometimes the clerk will type an entry into the electronic docket system which does not accurately describe the true nature of the Motion filed.)

      I will try to look up Arizona law on this issue for you later today when I have more time (unless someone else here who knows for certain takes up the question beforehand).

    05/09/2013 at 1:55 pm

    MMD :
    Yes HJ and we all know what happened to Dalmer!!!!! He was soooooooooooooooooo creepy, kinda like a JA maybe 2

    Jeffrey Dahmer came to my mind when JA was talking about getting autograph requests from other inmates and also by her complete lack of willingness to apologize or even acknowledge the hurt she has caused the Alexander family. Dahmer’s crimes were beyond horrific, no doubt, but at least he wrote a letter of apology to the court and the families that he read out loud prior to sentencing. That certainly didn’t fix what he had done, but he acknowledged that he knew something was wrong with him, that he was sick. He apologized for the pain he had caused and said he wanted no special considerations. When the families of some of his victims were able to give their impact statements, one woman just began screaming at him “I hate you! I hate you!” and had to be restrained by the bailiff to keep from lunging across the table at him and he just hung his head.

    Not too long after his conviction, there was an interview with both he and his father (who supported him through his trial, but also didn’t make excuses for him) and Dahmer was asked about all the fan mail he was receiving in prison. He shook his head and said “What is wrong with people? I know there is something seriously wrong with me, but what is wrong with people who idolize me and write letters wanting to get to know me? I am NOT the boy next door.”

    I am not tooting Jeffrey Dahmer’s horn. His crimes were beyond the pale even for serial killers, but he didn’t display the arrogance and refusal to accept responsibility that you saw in people like Ted Bundy. Or Jodi Arias. He knew there was something off about people who idolize and admire killers, he didn’t brag about his notoriety, and he didn’t taunt the families of his victims to re-victimize them. It says a lot when Jeffrey Dahmer appears to be the better person than Jodi Arias.

    • MMD
      05/09/2013 at 2:04 pm

      Thank you Kathy for letting me know this. I truly only knew his story leading up to his capture and then what happened to him in prison. I didn’t know that he took responsibility for his actions. As you, I’m not condoning his actions, but he knew there was something wrong with him and as you said, not someone like Ted Bundy who after all his swagger, did everything in his power not to be executed.

      • Kathy A.
        05/09/2013 at 2:13 pm

        Yes, I wanted to be clear that I don’t sympathize with him or what he did – his victims endured hellish deaths – but there is such a contrast between his behavior and Jodi Arias’. And as for Ted Bundy? As you said, he tried to do everything to escape execution. It amazes me sometimes that some of these serial killers who delight in taking others’ lives are afraid to die themselves.

      • MMD
        05/09/2013 at 2:15 pm

        Isn’t it the truth!!! In the end Bundy was terrified to die.

      • Kathy A.
        05/09/2013 at 2:44 pm

        You’re not off of your tree. In fact, upon his death although his wishes were to be cremated immediately, some researchers wanted to study his brain. His father wanted to honor his wishes, but his mother thought his brain should be studied. They went to court and the court ruled in favor of his father; after holding his body for a year, it was finally released to his dad. The inmate that killed him had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and murdered another inmate at the same time – beat them both to death with a broom. Why guards left the three of them alone and unsupervised for 20 minutes no one has ever been able to “officially” solve. (Can you tell serial killers are an interest of mine)? 🙂

      • WhereIsSHE
        05/09/2013 at 3:41 pm

        FBI’s Behavioral Scient Unit interviewed Dahmer extensively. You can read all of it –and much more–in the book, “My Friend Dahmer”, available on Amazon.com

      • WhereIsSHE
        05/09/2013 at 3:43 pm

        Dahmer gave a 159-page confession, but a FBI profiler on the case believes the serial killer kept secrets.

        “There was really no trail that led to him until a young man escaped. It could still be going on,” retired FBI agent Neil Purtell said.

        Purtell is the retired Wisconsin FBI profiler assigned to the Dahmer case. He doubts anyone will ever know the real extent of Dahmer’s crimes.

        “I think very few people ever disclose everything. They always hold something back. That’s their power. That’s their control,” Purtell said.

      • 05/09/2013 at 3:58 pm

      • Kathy A.
        05/09/2013 at 3:57 pm

        WIS, I’m sure he didn’t disclose everything. And he said himself if he hadn’t been caught he would still be killing, and if he ever got out, he didn’t believe he could control his urges. Scary thought. I don’t think they (serial killers) ever come completely clean; Gary Ridgway (the Green River Killer) agreed to confess to murders in order to avoid the death penalty. He was convicted of 49 killings, confessed to 71, but law enforcement believes he is actually responsible for close to 100. Thanks for the lead on the book; I’m getting OT here. 🙂

    CC … :
    Syn, (yet) another question. Sorry!
    I am assuming the Her Heinous will be sitting in the courtroom today. I know the term “duper’s delight” has been mentioned numerous time by the mental health experts on all the shows. Is this something she can control or will she be on her best post-fox-interview behavior? I would love for the camera to catch her in the act.

    OK now I know dupers delight is what Dr Robert Hare colloquially terms controlling perception, controlling reality… I can answer this.

    Remember she relishes manipulating people? She lives for it ….. literally. It is “the game” I posted about weeks ago. So each time she thinks she is doing it particularly convincingly she will feel a rush of pride and happiness within. It’s one of the very few things that really gives her pleasure.

    This is what that whole last day with Travis was all about. Her relishing in the fact she was duping him that whole day. She alone knew the game was being played, she alone knew the rules, and she alone had control of it and him.

    THIS is why she did not shoot him in the back and THIS is why the rage when she thought he was getting away.

    Does that make sense?

    • 05/09/2013 at 2:08 pm

      It does indeed. I was just wondering if “in spite of herself” Miss Heinous can control the pleasure it gives her– in other words, not give a tell — as she will be watched by the jury. Can she help visually displaying her euphoria from “winning” some particular exchange or viewing her handiwork on the screen when the awful crime scene photos are shown. Will she be able to help herself in not showing that delight?
      God, I hope not … and I hope it is caught on camera.

      • 05/09/2013 at 2:17 pm

        ok.. you know how I said occasionally there is something that hits home with her so surprisingly that it breaks through her projected persona?

        Think of it when you hear something shocking or unexpected something that makes you react rather than respond. Something funny that makes you smile without even realising it. Something you feel proud of and find yourself smiling to.

        That’s what this is.. this is a reaction. Some things we respond to.. ie choose the ‘reaction’ we have to it… technically though.. the difference between a response and a reaction is the ability to choose. We choose responses, reactions are unconscious.

    • 05/09/2013 at 2:10 pm

      I just re-read what I wrote and I am confusing myself (not hard to do). But I think you get the gist of my question, no? (I hope?)

    • 05/09/2013 at 2:16 pm

      Ahhhh… Thank you CC for the question and thank you Syntara for the answer! So eye opening! I had heard the term “dupers delight” but love the way you explained it and put it in line with the murderess and her actions.

  34. 05/09/2013 at 2:01 pm

    Not sure of Arizona, but in other jurisdictions during a civil case the defendant must sit for depositions. That would mean Jodi, Matt M, Mommy, even DonoMan would be compelled to give statements, under oath, about the hiding of assets, etc. Long depositions would give the plaintiffs attorneys far more leeway to question, as well as pin down perjury, as well as the subornation thereof…

    • WhereIsSHE
      05/09/2013 at 3:57 pm

      In civil cases, you “Notice” the deposition of the defendant. You are entitled to take the defendant’s deposition, because the defendant is a PARTY to the action (case, in lay terms).
      The other individuals are NOT parties to the case, and hence you have to SUBPOENA them to appear for deposition. They can hire their own counsel, who can file a motion to QUASH the subpoena (if they have grounds to object), and a judge (sometimes the judge who will ultimately try the case, but often just a judge assigned to general “discovery” hearing duties) will then rule on whether or not to grant the motion OR permit the subpoena to stand.

      The other issue is JURISDICTION–i.e. WHERE the suit will be filed (and where–after motions) it will finally be venued.
      Here- you have (some of?) the siblings RESIDING in California (to my understanding), but you have an action for wrongful death which arises out of a slaying in the state of Arizona.
      There are “choice of law” questions.
      There are “venue” questions.
      Ultimately, it is likely to proceed in Arizona, since that it where the major events that the lawsuit will focus on took place.
      Too complicated to go into all of the details now.
      But I mention this, because that also brings up issues with regard to JURISDICTION of the COURT over the potential witnesses mentioned here.

      IF ALL of the plaintiffs are residents of California –and the defendant, as we know, will be a permanent resident of the state of Arizona, the case can be filed in Federal Court under “Diversity of Citizenship” (of the parties, plus the jurisdictional value/”demand” certainly being in excess of the minimum amount required)–OR it can be “removed” to Fed. Ct. if it is filed in state court. (The SAME state law applies; just different judges, procedural rules, somewhat different evidentiary rules from time to time; jurors pooled from a number of counties over which the particular fed. ct has jurisdiction, vs. only one county if the case remains in state court, etc.)

      Nothing for people here to get worried about.
      The civil lawyers handling the case will deal with all of these matters.

    WIS –
    Hope that you and DH had a wonderful celebration last night!
    I have a question for you. The defense filed a motion on 5/3 for DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR DISCOVERY OF VICTIM IMPACT EVIDENCE. I have never heard of that ever being agreed to. It just seems so wrong and I hope the judge does NOT allow this. Have you ever heard of this being allowed???
    Then today they filed another motion – DEFENDANT’S REQUEST THAT VICTIM IMPACT EVIDENCE BE PRESENTED VIA VIDEOTAPE
    Seriously?!

    I think the motion for discovery will be difficult the only time the victim family is allowed to speak is when they give their victim impact statement. That is not something they have to submit to the court before hand etc .. and can in fact just get up there and talk with out anything prepared. I am confused on what evidence they they think they have ?? I am not a lawyer though. Maybe it could be about who will testify in the aggravation phase – ???

    Yesterday in her interview she said that Travis Family looks like him and reminds her of her abuser, now she files so they cannot personally speak in court… I knew everything she said had a purpose. This one is certainly walking a fine line … and may very well be a violation of victim rights laws. How terrible would it be for them to have to sit there and watch their statement and get to say nothing! Jodi is all about control and she is enjoying the suffering of the Alexander family

    Syntara :
    gooood luck!!!! hope they have good flavours!!!

    Syn- response to your earlier post regarding facial body language on videos. I didn’t get back on to post before page closed. Anyhow, I viewed 1-5. Saw what you noticed re: head down and up on right side. Also noticed a lot of eyelid flittering and head bobbing while looking down. On occasion, her head moved like a bobble head- eye contact downward.
    One head movement I only saw once was when she was asked about the JM tweets-she cocked her head to the left, paused and proceeded to state that she thought he was capable but was dishonest blah blah blah. I also do not think her “emotions” were genuine in regards to comments made regarding her mom. To me, it looked like the same bravado demonstrated in the courtroom; face turned away and covered…mumbling thru her hand and no indication of any tears.

      Put it this way Lisa…. to me everything in there spells pathological liar.. ie cannot tell the truth EVER. Also all contrived affect and total manipulation for the camera and viewers.

      So in a nutshell.. absolutely no change since the original 48 hours mystery all those years ago and pre all those years in jail… which to me screams psychopathy, because psychopaths never change no matter what and with sympathetic traditional psychology ie what she is likely privy to in jail and also the category lala and dr dodgy fall into…. it’s been proven psychopaths actually get worse because they learn even more tricks from these types.

    Yes, I agree… Not to mention the content of what she had to say!

    • 05/09/2013 at 2:54 pm

      Lisa.. I couldnt listen to her words.. I kind of shut off and go into analytical mode.. as Robert said earlier he can’t give her his 5 senses.. neither can I! As I said earlier the only thing in all I watched that I can tell you with certainty she said.. was when i reacted to that diabolical statement about all the Alexanders looking the same and her not being able to look at them because she could only see Travis, her abuser in their faces.

      OH yea.. she could only see the one person who ever stood up to her in their faces alright. She could only see the integrity, honesty and goodness in all of them.. the same things she coveted in Travis! That is the real truth of those words! Integrity, honesty, goodness things she can NEVER be and things that Travis and his family definitely are! Her kyrptonite!!!

    My granddaughter was driving down a dark lonely road yesterday and a baby kitten ran out..She ran it over and called her mother in hysterics..My daughter-in-law thought she had an accident because she couldn’t understand what she was saying as she was sobbing so hard, after running over this kitten that ran out of the woods..all of a sudden 3 more little kittens ran out into the road..Her mom said to bring them home..they are lucky little kitties..I’m sad this happened to the kitten but happy to see that my grandaughter had so much compassion..Jodi would’ve just kept going

      My grandmother can walk okay sometimes and sometimes she can’t. For instance, several hours ridding in a car wears her out and it takes her a day or two to regain balance. Going up and down elevators really messes with her too. Sometimes she screws up her medication or even forgets to take her medication and it causes balance issues. So maybe the grandmother was faking but it is also possible she has something similiar to my grandmother.

      Beth’s got too much class! she doesn’t stoop to the level Jean does! Jean always tries to appear to be on the criminals side just to try to get the “real scoop” I lost respect for her when she showed how chummy she was with Cheany Mason.

    In the other case donchais is covering, I came across part of the police intervierw with one of the 4 brutal criminals. Gives one an idea of what the cops are up against- no Einsteins in this one…

    Cop – and he was with your brother?
    Def – yeah
    Cop – what’s your borther’s name?
    Def- Letalvis
    Cop- spell it for me L.E..
    Def- I don’t know how to spell it
    Cop- laughing
    Def- I know he Cob…his last name Cobbins
    Cop- Cobbins?
    Def- yeah
    Cop- spell that for me. Do you know how to spell it?

  131. 05/09/2013 at 4:39 pm

    Talking heads saying DT may be wanting to withdraw after her statements last night that she wants DP. Are they fed up? Can’t represent someone that asks for DP.? Need to appoint other attorneys. She is so running this show. I bet he spends a lot of time in a law library if available researching cases for ways to manipulate.
