Jodi Arias – Death Penalty Still An Option

08/15/2013

Arias’ lawyers attempted to have the jury’s finding that Arias killed Travis Alexander in an “especially cruel” manner eleminated. That element of so-called aggravating factors allowed the jury to consider the death penalty.

Her attorneys argued that the definition of “especially cruel” is too vague for jurors to determine what makes one killing more cruel or heinous than another.

First, I don’t find “especially cruel” vague at all and second, that implies the jury is stupid!

Judge Sherry Stephens denied the motion in a ruling made public Wednesday.

A hearing is set for Aug. 26.ย  Judge Stephens previously indicated she wanted to set a new trial date for September.

    It will be god to get the final part of the trial over so all in Travis’s family can move on. But I do feel for Jodi. Why did she do what she was found guilty of?

    • Jo
      08/15/2013 at 7:59 am

      With all due respect John, you feel for Jodi? Because why? You don’t understand why she did what she did? Did you watch the trial? Even if she said she would now tell the truth about why she did what she did, who would believe her? She had changed her stories so many times, even from police interview to interview. Even on the stand. We, on the other side of the courtroom, knew much more than the jury was allowed to know which only made the case against her stronger and yet the jury, knowing less than us, found her guilty.

      If you want to know why people do what they do, there is no answer. Did you watch the police interviews with her parents? They were not surprised she did what she did. And I gathered it had nothing to do with Travis Alexander from their interviews.

      The man who was so obsessed with Jodi, and did not know her is now in jail for threatening to kill two tv reporters, WHY would he want to defend her? He did not know her.

      We will never know the absolute truth. What we do know is that SHE, JODI, THE LIAR, said Travis was abusing her but there is absolutely no indication of such abuse. NOT ONE SHRED of evidence to such an abuse (even if mental abuse is claimed). From all I have read, she is a VERY STRONG individual and would never allow herself to be abused. I know my answer is very simplistic and there are others far more articulate than me on this blog who probably can answer you better as to why she “did” what she was found guilty of (by “did” you mean….murdered horrifically?). I am more concerned about you “feel” for Jodi and YOUR reason why.

      • 08/15/2013 at 8:18 am

        Well said Jo, clear and to the point, not simplistic at all.

        Very well said, Jo. It’s hard to understand why people have sympathy for killers.

      • John
        08/15/2013 at 7:34 pm

        Hi Jo I think I feel for all parties involved, Travis, his family, as Jodi’s family. I did watch some of the trial on the Internet (I reside in Australia) and have only seen the 48 hour tv special. I think my question really is; how could any person do what Jodi did? Yes you are so right about what people do. There is no real answer. I do not have the information that most people have, but I have heard that some have written books and the like. Mate I didn’t know about the obsessed man regarding the ‘threats to kill the tv reporters’. Again why?

    I hope that Judge Stevens sticks with that September expectation. Technically, JA’s attorneys have had literally YEARS to did up testimony for the phase of the trial. The fact is, there isn’t much of anything to overcome the cruelty of her crime.

    I’ve only been following the proceedings on a “lite” level and tried to move on from the awfulness of the trial. However, I do recollect reading that there was a recent decision in AZ from a higher court that laid the path for this decision.

    • ritanita
      08/15/2013 at 8:24 am

      LOL! I’m replying to myself!

      I just watched the Beth Karas Spreecast at Wild About Trial. She said that the holdup could be that, before they actually can start, they need a complete transcript of the entire trial. Court stenographers have to do that work on their own time (that’s where they make their real money). It was a long, drawn-out trial! She mentioned October as a possibility.

    08/15/2013 at 7:37 am

    Morning all. How many times has the defense tried this tactic? If it is not this, then it’s trying to withdraw or unable to provide a defense! Geez, she admitted she did it, the jury found her guilty and agreed that she qualified for the dp and JA even said she would rather die. Please let’s just give JA her original wish so that the Alexander family can move on and finally get some justice.

    I agree with ritanita that her attorneys have had YEARS plus JA hit the cruelty level with the second knife wound, not to mention just leaving him there.

    I don’t see how Judge Stephens could not stick with her September date without their being a massive public backlash. I did hear rumours a while back though that JA wanted Wurmi gone so that could be a delay tactic.

      good morning MMD. I ditto everything you said. It’s time to get this show on the road. No more stalling and no more delays.
      John… John…. John….. we have to have a talk. You are correct it will be God to get the final part of this trial over so that the Alexander family can move on. The old testiment God. He needs to smite her down with a bolt of lightening. Careful with the hair so she can bequeath it to Locks of Love. She did what she did because she is pure evil and in her warped narcissistic, psychopathic mind she simply did it because if she couldn’t have him, nobody could have him.

    You know, with the short work week, trial delays, sick days and every other delays that AZ and/or Stephens allowed, it really was only a 2 to 2 1/2 month trial at the very most. True it was drawn out, but maybe court reporters in AZ (no offense to Mike B) work at the same pace cranking out the transcripts.

    Just a thought – I truly have no idea.

    • 08/15/2013 at 10:27 am

      Thanks MMD, the best shows I have ever watched are The Sopranos, Band of Brothers and Homicide:Life on the Street – Breaking Bad is right there with them in my mind. Deadwood And Dead Like Me are in second place. Never watched The Wire or got into Mad Men.

      • MMD
        08/15/2013 at 10:32 am

        I totally agree and I didn’t watch The Wire and can’t get into Mad Men either. I still love my Justified though. Walton Goggins is truly a force of nature and a joy to behold when acting he is so good. The way they write he and Tim Olyphant, I could watch the 2 of them spar all day.

        Of course Goggins producing partner is involved with Vince Gilligan with something so all the good ones are intertwined.

      • 08/15/2013 at 10:39 am

        Yeah, I was reading in that article you directed me to about the Gilligan/Goggins connection. Did you see my comment about the Levine/Noonan connection on the other page? I’m going to find a source for Justified and start from the beginning.

      • dpforjodi

      In all the years I lived there I never went to the CNE. If I was going into TO it was usually to the theatre, a concert or my fav, a Blue Jays game at the Skydome.

        As far as I’m concerned the only good thing about my marriage were the season tickets to the Jays, with seats right behind the catcher. That was during the time when they were winning the World Series. They made up for all the snooty functions I had to go to with hubs.

        He truly is an embarrassment. Thankfully he is causing grief around the rest of the world and most folks think he is American.

      • 08/16/2013 at 8:19 am

        you don’t have to worry about Beiber – I stuffed him in a box and shipped him to Syn months ago as payback for unleashing Murdoch on the rest of us.

    • 08/16/2013 at 8:43 am

      Really? I didn’t know. We’re 3 in now, what are they going to do, just grab some guy by the scruff of the neck and say “oh yeah, ere’s the killer” And speaking of lyin’ cheatin’ weasels, two words – Mark Latimer.

      • MMD
        08/16/2013 at 8:47 am

    08/16/2013 at 9:02 am

    I have NO idea who the killer is because there are soooooooo many red herrings. It could be the minister, Nige Carter, weird Susan. I think that Tom Miller, Ellie’s son and Chloe Latimer know more than they are saying.

    The only thing that I’m sure of is that is is NOT Jack (the store owner), whom they are currently focusing on.

    • MMD

      • 08/16/2013 at 10:47 am

        My best friend as a kid was my cousin, we were like brothers – he was ‘adopted’. My aunt and uncle used to take in foster kids and they just decided to keep Rob. I don’t even know when this happened, he was always my best friend – as far back as I can remember. My family is large – with many aunts, uncles, cousins – I have never heard anyone use the word. I guess someone did, I didn’t learn this by osmosis, but it was a total non-factor.

      • MMD
        08/16/2013 at 10:53 am

        It’s was always a non factor with me and still is. I just wanted my medical history, which I found out after my Mum passed. The chosen term only came up in drs’ offices when I would take Mum and she would correct me.

    08/16/2013 at 10:46 am

    Dunno yet. It’s supposed to be a beautiful, no humidity weekend. I do have a friend that just told her hubby that she is leaving so I might be spending a lot of time with her. Her 12 year old daughter is freaking out and her father told her to stay for her daughter’s sake. She and hubs haven’t even talked in years so I can’t see him being surprised or her father not supporting her. Sad all around.

    • 08/16/2013 at 10:52 am

      These things always are, but staying together for the kids never works and is poor advice IMO. I don’t like getting involved in someone else’s drama since my own life is so uncluttered but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do for a friend.

      • MMD
        08/16/2013 at 10:58 am

        I have been trying to get her to leave for ages but she never would. I kept telling her that hubby was probably hiding money and documenting everything she has ever done but she wouldn’t listen. Things came to a head last weekend and she finally exploded. Doesn’t help that she has been having an affair for quite some time. She knows my feelings on that but I told her she had to make her own choices as it is her life.

        All I care about is that she and her daughter get out safely because hubs is mean.

    Jane Velez Mithchell is having a special tonight on WOBO.Her book comes out either today or in a few days. So she will be teasing us(she can tease me anyday, just don’t shout)

    • 08/20/2013 at 7:34 am

      JM recounts an interesting incident of previous stalking against another bf, also Beth Karas contributed to the research which adds a level of credibility in my mind.

    • ritanita
      08/20/2013 at 7:52 am

      I almost considered buying the tome when it comes out, considering Beth did the fact-checking. Then, I saw a sample of the writing and it was as loud and flamboyant at JVM herself.

      I listened to the first promo on the book last night (save my ears, please!) and so far zip, nada “new” except for more details about how she stalked Bobby!

      I’m waiting for Shana Hogan’s book. She did fantastic reporting all the way through the trial.

      Now, I’m waiting for the hearing on Monday. I hope Judge Stevens doesn’t deep-six it into chambers yet again. I so want this sentencing to be over so JA can go to a real-life, swamp-cooler prison cell.

      • MMD
        08/20/2013 at 7:59 am

        I agree. Enough of this chambers crap!!! I’m really tired of this hurry up and wait plus all the secrecy.

      • 08/20/2013 at 8:00 am

        Didn’t realize it was Bobby they were referring to, mistakenly thought it was somebody more recent. Couldn’t agree more about the sentencing.

    08/20/2013 at 7:57 am

    Morning all. I also read an excerpt of JVM’s book as it showed up as a google alert for JA. Tabloid sensationalism at it’s finest. Even reading it, in my head I could hear JVM yelling it.
    I learned my lesson the one and only time I read a book from JVM and nothing has changed. She is simply a hack, imho.

    MMD, since we have a moment here and I was thinking of Elmore, have you ever read Brad Smith? He lives in Dunville and writes in a similar vein – check him out if you haven’t. His earlier efoorts were better than the last one imo.

      True. Now with 5 years and credit we are down to less than 4. I wonder how much time exactly she will have to serve Georgia?

      • 08/20/2013 at 11:15 am

        Well Toots, I’m going to go to the library and get my movie and, I’m thinking, some favourite Elmore’s to re-read, do a little mourning, I’m going to miss him, been with him since his early western days. Have a good one, see ya tomorrow.

  101. ritanita
    08/20/2013 at 11:21 am

    Well, she got 5 years with one year off for time served. Prison should reset her attitude, for sure!

    • MMD

      Hopefully ritanita. Do you know if she will get time off for good behaviour?

      • ritanita
        08/21/2013 at 9:17 am

        No good behavior time in GA, however, she could be eligible for parole in about 2 months! I just don’t get how a year of house-arrest equals a year in jail.

      • MMD
        08/21/2013 at 12:02 pm

        It should NOT be equal but what do I know, I’m just a canuck. I truly hope that the parole board will not let her out for quite some time as she has yet to accept any responsibility!!!

  102. MMD
    08/20/2013 at 11:23 am

  103. MMD
    08/20/2013 at 11:51 am

    Beans – this is for you from Elmore Leonard’s website. You were in good company this weekend.

    “Leonard particularly enjoyed the hit F/X series โ€œJustified,โ€ based on his novella โ€œFire in the Hole,โ€ and was inspired to write a novel, โ€œRaylan,โ€ in 2012, about the title character.”

    Guess I’ll have to read that book for sure.

    • 08/20/2013 at 12:13 pm

      I feel like there was an earlier novel as well, going to look for it.. As to Brad Smith, one reviewer called him a cross between Elmore and Carl Hiaasen, I don’t usually pay too much attention to that sort of thing, but in this case it’s pretty accurate. I’m sorry to hear that about Daisy.

    • 08/20/2013 at 12:19 pm

    If the children were the beneficiaries and someone else was convicted of his murder I don’t know how the insurance company could avoid paying out, although I bet they fought it tooth and nail. As it is, she still hasn’t been convicted as an accessory after the fact, just obstruction and perjury in the investigation. Obviously crime pays in her case ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Have you heard that the family of the guy who kidnapped Hannah Anderson, killed her mother and brother, are looking for a dna sample because they want to find out if he was their bio father. Guess it doesn’t matter that the mother was already pregnant when she first met him. All has to do with an insurance policy that listed the children’s paternal grandparents (with funds to go to the children) as the beneficiary.

    Truly amazing who comes out of the woodwork when money is involved ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Like that poor girl and her father need to deal with that crap after everything that has happened.

      Are we talking about the same family?

Amanda then returned to San Diego and her father Brett Anderson. Incidentally Brett Anderson’s dna was to identify the remains of his son Ethan.

    Morning all. Have you seen the latest motion that Wurmi and Gidget have filed? They want to monitor all potential jurors twitter and although it is not mentioned probably fb. They also say “Arias will โ€œendeavor to paint a complete pictureโ€ of who she is and why she deserves a sentence of life.โ€

    http://www.azcentral.com/community/mesa/free/20130821arias-lawyers-want-twitter-accounts-new-jurors.html

    All I can say is that I think that anyone who watched the trial has a pretty good idea of who JA is and that since she said she would rather get the dp we should grant her that wish, sooner rather than later โ— Enough of these bullshit delay tactics.

    Now that the sun is not baking my noggin. I meant what a family the dimaggio’s are. Dad abducts a 16 year old, then commits suicide. Sonny Jim tortures and kills Hannah’s mother and brother, kills the family dog, abducts Hannah. Thankfully the FBI shot him. And then Jim’s sister makes the DNA testing demand. You think she would run away and hide.

      08/22/2013 at 7:16 am

      Right DP, I forgot about that yesterday. My brain was muddled yesterday but today what you said makes perfect sense. Yeah, hell of a family. I would be totally mortified if that was my brother but money makes people nuts and apparently its around $110K.

      As for the dna, from several reports I’ve read, the mother was 8 months pregnant when she first met Jim.

    I had never heard of ragdolls before your comment yesterday and I googled them and they are absolutely beautiful plus incredibly expensive. Supposed to have a personality closer to a dog rather than most cats. Absolutely fell in love with the face and adore that they go limp when picked up. No wonder you were complaining about her being scratchy bleedy LOL

        Well darlin’ you have to do more than talk about it. You’ve got to make it so that it is a lot easier to get a golden than to have to listen to you. You know what they say about the squeaky wheel!!!!!!

        She is living in town with a person that has 4 dogs in a tiny 2 bedroom home. 2 very poorly behaved Australian sheppards!!!!!! So I think I will have to wait until she has forgotten this.

      • MMD
        08/22/2013 at 7:44 am

        Yes but that is not fair to have 2 large dogs in a very small house. After all, you have to swear how different this would be plus how good and gentle goldens are because your g/f may never forget her experience.

  136. dpforjodi
    08/22/2013 at 7:43 am

    And I will. But we have both had rambuncious dog’s in the past. Remember the dog trainer said Bubba was the most stubborn dog she had ever met.

    • MMD
      08/22/2013 at 7:49 am

      LOL The people across the street have a golden and I don’t know if it has ever barked. It is not allowed anywhere there is hardwood and if you put a yardstick down, it will not go past that. They have an underground fence and it doesn’t go past that.

      Bet ya can tell that her owner is kind of anal about things ๐Ÿ™„

        lol. You know what they say about dog’s resembling their owners. We were out for a walk one day. I noticed Bubba was looking kinda broad in the beam and he was blonde golden. I said Bubba one of us has to loose weight we are starting to look alike

    It’s not fair having 2 high energy dogs in such a small place. They need a ranch in Australia.

    • MMD
      08/22/2013 at 8:01 am

      4 dogs in a very small house. Totally unfair and cruel for the animals. I have 3 small dogs in an average size 3 bedroom house and they all have claimed their own territory. Maggie May has the largest, Daisy the smallest. They even have their own bathrooms. Me, I get the left overs. It’s amazing how far toys can be strewn.

      • dpforjodi
        08/22/2013 at 8:14 am

        yes. It sounds like they rule the roost.
        Here is a funny story about Bubba.
        I was selling my house and had just had all the carpets cleaned. Bubba was allergic to beef. I had a roast in the warming drawer of my oven. Bubba got into it and stole the roast of beef. Well………. he is running around the house with the unfurled roast, string still attached dragging it all over the carpet. I’m worried about him 1. eating the roast or 2. swallowing the string. He dragged that all over every square inch of that newly cleaned carpet. Talk about skid marks. I finally got it away from him but he wasn’t happy and what a state the house was in. Ohhhh Bubba

      • MMD
        08/22/2013 at 8:20 am

        OMG toooooooo funny. Just makes you love them even more, after you get over being annoyed. As for what they consume, you’d be surprised what comes out in poop and they’ve had no ill feelings. Since my dogs all have been trained on puppy pads, you’d be surprised at what I’ve picked up.

        It’s kinda like, oh, so that’s where that went to ๐Ÿ™‚

    08/22/2013 at 7:57 am

      08/22/2013 at 8:05 am

      Daisy and Mac grew up together and were inseparable. Then for continuity sake I got Maggie May. After I lost Mac I decided that Maggie needed a companion since Daisy didn’t want to play with her so enter Phipps. Turns out that Daisy and Phipps spend the most time together. They are 14 and 2. Go figure!

      Beans darlin’ hello. We have missed you. Are you feeling better?

      • 08/22/2013 at 8:28 am

        Yup. This humidity and pressure is playing hell with every joint in my body, only managed 3 hours sleep in each of the last 2 nights. How about the migraines, are you better today?

      • MMD
        08/22/2013 at 8:31 am

        Yes much better today thanks. I thought you had A/C so that the humidity wouldn’t affect you.

      • 08/22/2013 at 8:36 am

        I do but turn it off at night or I couldn’t afford to pay the hydro bill. Need the A/C more during the day because of my 3 enormous south facing windows – they’re 52″ wide and 106″ tall – a lot of heat gets in.

      Even though I don’t get to see it until the dvd comes out, I love reading the post mortem with the show runner each week when it is airing. The little things that they put in and the reasons why are sometimes truly hilarious. And of course, by the time I get the dvd, I’ve completely forgotten what I read so it all works out. Love, love, love that show!!! (not that you guys didn’t already know that ;-))

      • 08/22/2013 at 8:43 am

        Some rat bastard stole season 2 from the library so they ordered a new one when I requested it – have to wait for it to arrive but I’m first in line. Same thing happened with season 3 of BB but it’s on sale at amazon so I’m going to buy it at the end of the month.

        yes I am. And MMD she is getting me a present and not a combo one like I suggested. Last year I got a new tv for our bedroom. Now I’d like a new sound system for it. I got her a roku for her birthday plus other things that she could use. The roku was for me.

      • 08/22/2013 at 8:55 am

        Don’t know what kind of system you want but check out Sony soundbars – I had a $5,000 Denon surround system but wanted to downsize so I sold it and bought a soundbar instead – $300. and I love it.

      • MMD
        08/22/2013 at 8:57 am

        I like the way you think! I didn’t know what a roku was but just looked it up. I think I need one of those. See I learn something new from you guys every day!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    08/22/2013 at 8:41 am

    Beans, you need some serious roller blinds for those windows. They really make a difference. I know your hydro bills are atrocious there. I have a friend who is constantly complaining. Mine used to be $30 a month and then I went into shock with the oil bills here.

    • 08/22/2013 at 8:49 am

      Mine average $30 but the one I just received was $99 – that’s a big hit on my pension. The blinds are on my wish list but have to wait for a while.

      • MMD
        08/22/2013 at 8:53 am

        That’s a big hit!!!! I have no idea how some people are coping.

      • dpforjodi
        08/22/2013 at 8:55 am

      • MMD

        That’s what I did so I could budget.

      • 08/22/2013 at 8:58 am

        Yeah they do – but this is the first time the bill jumped that much since I’ve been here – about 6 years – so I wasn’t expecting it.

      • dpforjodi
        08/22/2013 at 8:59 am

        why did your hydro go up so much? Did they increase the rates? Do you have A/C? Maybe they made a mistake!!!!!

      • 08/22/2013 at 9:04 am

        DP, yes, there was an increase in on-peak usage and delivery charges, I used to pay more for delivery than I did in hydro consumption until the on-peak system was installed.

      • 08/22/2013 at 9:08 am

        It’ll be back to normal next month, it’s only because of the heavy duty A/C usage last month – with the humidex we had some days that were the equivalent 133 degrees.

    • 08/22/2013 at 9:16 am

      Back in the day when Ex and I lived on a farm, we heated and cooked with wood, we bought an old Findlay Oval cook stove. Lots of hardwood on the farm so I felled trees and split everything myself. We used oil lamps a lot too – just liked living the old way.

    08/22/2013 at 8:52 am

    I know that I’m repeating myself and you told me why you didn’t want it however, just for info purposes, Netflix has everything that has aired of BB, except the last 8 episodes but only the first 2 seasons of Justified. Season 4 will be coming out in January on dvd. There is that free month, not nagging, just saying.

    • 08/22/2013 at 9:01 am

      No, I get that, my main concern is the data usage as I share wi-fi with my neighbour and if I use too much we have to pay extra or move up to another plan which would cost us more thereby wiping out any savings I’m managing now.

      • MMD

  147. MMD
    08/22/2013 at 9:30 am

    Beans, you are smart using Amazon. Chapters Indigo is totally priced out of reason plus they charge you for shipping. I was checking out HOW in dvd because there would be a delay in the shipping at Amazon and there was like a $20 difference in price. I gave up on them years ago. Even their books can be way more expensive. Needless to say, I didn’t order it because I can wait because I have already watched the first 2 seasons on Netflix and season 3 is downloading on my computer.

        08/22/2013 at 10:50 am

        Only that one. I get 45 – 15 per month to be dispensed every 30 days. I want him to write me a new one that says 45 to last 3 months. He’s done that before and then I don’t have to pay the dispensing fee 3 times. But since I know that is what he wants I get the pharmacy to give me 15 and then fill 3 bottles with 10 each – 2 for the next 2 months and the 3rd one so that I can borrow from myself on the months when I need more or not, if I don’t need them. As you can tell, my pharmacy is very good to me but I hate paying $75.00 for 15 pills just because the generic is not available. Plus it guarantees that I have a 3 month supply in case the name brand runs short again like it did recently.

    DP, this one dr is the only one in my life I have ever had to wait for. Even though my usual appt, (he makes me go every 3 months for 1 prescription :-() is at 4 and the last one, I always just make sure that I’m there just before they lock the doors at 5. Works like a charm every time. LOL Last time I hadn’t slept and was full of caffeine and let him have it because I hate, hate, hate waiting. I think it is rude and inconsiderate because I am always early for everything. Hope he has forgotten my meltdown since it has been almost six months. I got lucky and he canceled my last appt. Knowing him, he probably has it written down though.

    Talking about no good places to eat. A lot of people came from New Brunswick for my Mum’s funeral and viewing. A friend and her mother, who happened to be visiting from Ontario drove over that long, long 10 mile bridge that you hate, and when they stopped to gas up in town (although we are officially a city) they asked where there was a good place to eat. They were told Tim Horton’s. I thought it was hilarious when I heard about it but it is pretty close to the truth. There are all the fast food joints but if you want a good meal with any type of atmosphere you have to go to Charlottetown.

      Morning MMD. Watched the episode of Justified where Dewey was kicked out of Boyd’s church for ‘onanism’ – funny stuff.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 9:38 am

        Doc was fully compliant. Gave me a year’s worth of meds. I actually only had to wait maybe 10 minutes. I told him how awesome he was being and he admitted that he has an intern working with him ๐Ÿ˜‰ He should have just taken the credit.

      • 08/23/2013 at 10:08 am

        Just kidding, I have learned my lesson and will ALWAYS listen to you. Dewey is an Aussie, according to IMDb he was also in an episode of BB, along with a ton of other stuff. (I’m still laughing at his line “ya cain’t kill someone for jerkin’ off”)

        08/23/2013 at 10:29 am

        I saw a panel discussion with the entire cast one year and they are all so good. Art can be hilarious and this last season they explored more of the characters of Rachel and Tim and they are finally coming into their own.

        I just love the character of Boyd Crowder and love the friend/enemy relation between he and Raylan. I also think that Walton Goggins is one hell of an actor!

      • 08/23/2013 at 10:40 am

        We’re back to the great character actors again. I’ve always liked Nick Searcy and I’ll watch Walton Goggins in anything after what I’ve seen here. There’s an interesting video on youtube featuring a discussion between Timothy and Walton.

    • 08/23/2013 at 10:11 am

      Let’s see, finishing Stephen White, I set it aside for a hold that came in as You can only have new ones for a week, still have Stand-up Guys and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel to watch so I shouldn’t be bored. How about you?

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 11:22 am

        I’m delaying reading Compound Fractures because I don’t want to say goodbye to the characters. I’m going to watch Quartet (per your recommendation), finish season 7 of Dexter, watch this week’s episode of The Bridge and Suits. Anytime left, I may go on another movie marathon. After all I have to get my money’s worth out of this month’s Netflix. Also will be watching HoW on Sunday.

      • 08/23/2013 at 11:41 am

        I forgot about The Bridge, it’s still on my dvr. Just managed to score Elmore’s Pronto, a Raylan novel, it was out the other day. I’m still waiting for Quartet. How could it be bad with that cast? Really looking forward to seeing Maggie and Judi together in Hotel – Judi is another one that I’ll watch in anything. I could never get into Dexter, I know I’m in the minority.

  176. MMD
    08/23/2013 at 11:57 am

    I just watched that. I love him and judge all other judges by him. He is polite and respectful to all parties, looks after his jurors, keeps the trial moving and doesn’t allow any crap. He also always rises for the jury to show respect. As Chief Judge he has been working 7 days a week and every night for a long time. I am sorry to hear that he is going to get a tv show. The judicial system needs more people like him. Has he ever lost a ton of weight.

    All in all, besides his work ethic I think he is just such a lovely man. I wish him all the best in the next phase of his career.

    • 08/23/2013 at 12:05 pm

      Completely agree except whether I like those shows or not (NOT!) I don’t begrudge a person for cashing in at this stage of his life after years of remarkable service.

        I’m with Rogers, they don’t outsource customer service either. I have a few complaints about their pricing but have to say, they’ve been very good to me. I’ll wait, If I wanted to watch something bad enough, I know a certain computer guy who knows all the ways to get a hold of anything, but I choose not to do that.

      • 08/23/2013 at 12:43 pm

        We can get unlimited, just don’t want to pay the extra right now. My rent’s going up in Oct., hydro has gone up, groc. prices are going up, with my pension I live on less than $13,000 a year – have to be careful about incurring extra expenses and make do with what I can.

    • 08/23/2013 at 12:31 pm

      While at the library I had the inspiration to re-watch Fawlty Towers but they don’t have it so I just checked amazon and they have the complete series, remastered, on sale for 35 bucks – have you ever watched it? My kids and I used to watch it on PBS during the pledge drives when the kids were young – Nikko and I still laugh about it.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 12:51 pm

        No I’ve never watched it. What am I not seeing? I’m looking at Amazon and the first one is 34.99 and the second one which is the complete series is $135.00. Are you sure it is the entire series?

        This is the page that I am looking at
        http://www.amazon.ca/s/ref=a9_sc_1?rh=i%3Advd%2Ck%3Afawlty+towers&keywords=fawlty+towers&ie=UTF8&qid=1377276318

      • 08/23/2013 at 12:58 pm

        That’s what I saw too. The fine print on the less expensive one said 3 discs, same number as the more expensive set so I figured it was complete as well – merits further investigation I guess. Either way, it is hilarious if one appreciates John Cleese and wacky British humour. I think he’s one of the funniest guys ever.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 1:03 pm

        I looked at seasons 1, 2 and 3 and the amount of minutes seems to add up to around the same as the cheaper one.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 1:13 pm

        OK the minutes for the cheaper one is 126 minutes shorter than the more expensive one, which was released in 2001. According to the comments at the bottom it is the best re release yet and has new commentary plus some carryover. Besides if it is not what you want, you can always return it. You know technology, everything gets smaller and more condensed each year.

        Since it is something that you and Nikko enjoyed you should probably have it in your permanent library, imho.

    Beans I am totally in awe with how you survive on that income. You are living in a very expensive province. I remember when I first moved to Oakville and that was back in 1988, hubs was making $150K then and at the end of the month a lot of times there wasn’t enough money for groceries.

    Even though I am my mother’s daughter and am very frugal (cheap) I still can’t stretch money the way she could. She literally could turn pennies into dollars.

    • 08/23/2013 at 1:36 pm

      Budget. The night my pension arrives in the bank I pay all my bills electronically, without fail. My rent is $560. per. I plan my menu for the month then I buy groc. after checking the flyers for the two stores in my neighbourhood, except for specific things I get at the farmers’ market – my fave butcher is there – and I eat very well. After that a few beers and any necessities but it does get tight about two thirds of the way through the month. – true story, I just paid my last quarter to the library as an overdue fine – penniless until next Wed., but I’m not whining, it is what it is, there’s grub in the fridge, I have books to read, shows/movies to watch, company here, and laughs. Don’t need anything else.

        08/23/2013 at 1:51 pm

        When I lived in Halifax and stayed in the apartment that I moved into my 3rd year of university, the rent was higher than what you pay and I had a roommate. When she moved out, I inherited the job of superintendent from the owner’s daughter who decided to go to law school. It was only 12 units but it was in the south end where all the universities and hospitals were so I filled it with interns and residents. Because of it’s location I walked to work (1 1/2 m) and enjoyed it. Didn’t own a car and lived there for over 12 years. Mind you Halifax is very close to TO when it comes to high living costs. It didn’ t help that I was a smoker in those days.

        I truly don’t know how students afford it these days.

      How did Juan put it – ‘pennies in their kettle’ I think. Thanks again Jessi.

    Nadal Hashan found guilty on all counts and now qualifies for the dp.

    • 08/23/2013 at 1:46 pm

      Good, but the military doesn’t like killing its own – executions are rare.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 1:55 pm

        I don’t think they will have a problem with executing this one. They probably have a lineup to carry out the execution already.

  185. 08/23/2013 at 1:50 pm

    A shrink on HLN just cracked me up. They were talking about the SD mayor bragging to one of his victims that he could “go” for 8 hours. Vinnie asked the shrink if that was even possible, she said sure but it begins to hurt after 4 hours.

    Here’s my question — if jurors are compelled to provide their Twitter accounts, will they be given to Wobo or her Twitter liaison for her/them to stalk? Can the jurors demand that no one other than maybe a bailiff be allowed to monitor? I wouldn’t trust Wurmi and his sidekick to not pass them off to that murdering biatch!

    • MMD
      08/23/2013 at 2:06 pm

      I think that JA gets to see everything that the attorneys get to see. It is her right and her attorneys work for her. She totally gets to call the shots. Just another things to piss everyone off about the rights that defendants are afforded in comparison to the victims.

    • 08/23/2013 at 2:08 pm

      I heard this concern addressed last night and the consensus seemed to be yes. Don’t know if it’s true but if it is then protections must be put into place.

      • ByeByeJA
        08/23/2013 at 2:36 pm

        It’s just absolutely wrong. These people will have to either delete their Twitter accounts (if they even have them) or be sure to block her — which I believe can be done????

      • 08/23/2013 at 2:45 pm

        I don’t use that stuff so the implications are beyond me but it was suggested that names, addresses and passwords would be available to the defence and therefor Stabby and her crew.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 2:46 pm

    CNN just showed some raw unedited footage of the results of the alleged chemical weapons that Syria used that killed so many, especially children. Truly horrifying.

    • 08/23/2013 at 2:18 pm

      That bastard Assad is another guy we can do without.

  190. 08/23/2013 at 2:33 pm

    Toots, about sharing your discs, I was thinking, if you really cared you could strap the kids into their car-seats and set out on a roadtrip. You could be here in a few days, turn around and be back home sometime next week. I don’t see any flaws in the plan, do you?

      08/23/2013 at 2:44 pm

      I hate driving!!!!! Other than that, no probs at all. My Jeep is an 04 and I have less than 20,000 kilometers on it.

      • 08/23/2013 at 3:00 pm

        Sweet ride. I had a fully loaded ’04 Ford Escape with low mileage that I loved but didn’t really need anymore so I gave it to Nikko when his daughter was born as he and his wife were driving an unsafe pos at the time. I don’t drive anymore other than taking my aunt to Hamilton and Oakville for her diabetes checkups. Pretty much everything I need is within walking distance or we have a great transit system available.

      08/23/2013 at 2:51 pm

      Plus it costs over $40 just to go over the bridge so that would buy you a couple of seasons of BB.

      On the other hand, if I flew in, should I fly into TO or Hamilton???

      • 08/23/2013 at 3:02 pm

        Hamilton, I can borrow auntie’s car and be there in 30 minutes.

      I would love to get inside the brains of some of these people. We will never know what war and all the atrocities members of the forces see, even just in training tapes, do to their minds.

      • 08/23/2013 at 3:05 pm

        Agreed, but he called it an act of cowardice, blamed steroids and alcohol, said he slipped out of camp to kill women and kids.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 3:08 pm

        I know he did. I was just speaking generally. It seems that so many in the forces either while on active duty or when they get out are so f’d up. Once they are out, it seems like the ball gets dropped both here and especially south of the border.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 3:14 pm

        Well he knew that wasn’t going to fly. After all A-Rod and Lance are not out killing women and children. ๐Ÿ™„

  192. 08/23/2013 at 3:24 pm

    It’s reprehensible the way both of our Gov’ts treat vets. If not familiar with his story, google Cpl. Rob Furlong, a canuck sniper. At the time he made the longest killshot in history in Afghanistan, saving a group of American soldiers from ambush. He received a special medal from the Amer. military and an hearty ‘atta boy’ from us when he got home, which is ok imo, as we don’t make a big deal out of these things here, but later politics entered the equation and he was disgraced over what I believe to be BS charges. Don’t get me started on the V.A. in the States or medical benefits here.

    • MMD
      08/23/2013 at 3:32 pm

      reading about him now. WTH is Princess Patricia?

      • 08/23/2013 at 3:37 pm

        Beats me, a military regiment is all I know.

      • 08/23/2013 at 3:57 pm

        I just went back over the info on wiki and it has been edited, he and others were accused of taking ears as trophies, but never formally charged. He left the military and became a cop, where he has had some troubles – all of these guys and women need more support, not bureaucratic bullshit from gov’t drones and politicians who have never sacrificed anything for their countries.

      • MMD
        08/23/2013 at 4:37 pm

        Sorry – I was just watching a couple of CBC interviews with Furlong and then a friend called who has a son at Gagetown and I answered the phone with “do you realize that the finest and best elite sniper training school in the world is at Gagetown?” She didn’t know either. Going to watch the second interview now.

  193. 08/23/2013 at 4:02 pm

    Anyway, now I’ve managed to tick myself off, so I’m gonna go and pull the wings off flies, or something, to cheer up – see ya later Toots and everyone else.

    Hi to all peeps!
    This totally pisses me off. JA’s sleazy atty’s are using the death threats angle again in a big way. Their “semi” reporter, Michael Kiefer, better not begin to re-tell the lie that both atty’s needed police/security escorts to and from court , as he did during the trial. Kathy Monkman (court lady) has pictures that proved they were strolling out the front door and stopping to chat at the the media trucks – all smiles. This was during the same time period that Kiefer’s print and video reports were heavily playing up this angle and making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    Kristina’s article is a good synopsis but the 45 page link to their motion is also worth a read.
    She’s also writing a book on JA and there is a box to the rt side on the blog where she announced this.

      I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying your summer. I hope we will chat with you soon when this retrial finally gets back into action and Judge Stephens stops all the frivolous defense motions.

      I’m just looking at the CARP website because I don’t have additional insurance besides my provincial plan. I want to check out the auto club as well.

      • 08/24/2013 at 9:43 am

        It’s a pretty good deal, there are lots of other advantages and the magazine is entertaining. Moses Znaimer has a lot to do with it.

      • MMD
        08/24/2013 at 10:28 am

        I saw that. I’m not as concerned with drug coverage (unless it is something astronomical) as hospital coverage like private rooms, home care, etc. I can handle the glasses, meds I currently get, dentist bills but what if I get something really bad.

        Both CARP and CAA are through ManuLife and the forms are so damn confusing that I called my bestie, who owns a few pharmacies and after bitching for a while, he said get the info, the quotes and give it to me and I’ll figure out the best deal for you. Just love that man (in a purely platonic way of course)

      • 08/24/2013 at 10:48 am

        Must be a provincial thing or they changed carriers, mine was Gore Mutual, they were good to deal with – for an insurance co.

      • 08/24/2013 at 10:51 am

        It really is. He is named as my medical next of kin because he is the only person I trust who would be as strong an advocate (pain in the ass) as I have been for people. Besides, although I’m not close with his wife, I know she would fill in if he wasn’t available.

    Well, here’s a story you don’t see every day. A guy in England has been banned from setting foot on any farm in the country after being caught having, uh, “relations” with a goat. Found it on The Daily Beast under ‘this week in weird’ – enjoy.

    I will be really ticked if for some reason Judge Stephens decides to disallow cameras in the courtroom!!!! Even though she usually denies most of the defense motions, and we know this one is based on bs, she never ceases to amaze.

    I can’t wait to see JM’s response to the filing!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  201. 08/24/2013 at 10:57 am

  204. 08/24/2013 at 5:01 pm

    Just read em, beans. Yeah, nothing is shocking about her and her shit. The Twitter thing struck me as strange as she could use it to her advantage. She has nothing but time on her hands, and her mind on her mind. Knowing jurors Twitter handles is a good way to get a mistrial when she starts her dirty work. And that’s what she’s going for; delay, and torture.
