Oh come on! Travis was the real victim of domestic abuse. He was stabbed 29 times and shot in the head. How long would Jodi have to defend herself after stabbing him in the chest?

I guess you got your bloodlust from the murder of Travis Alexander, no?

The real hero for women is a woman who is truthful and walks away from an unhealthy relationship with her dignity.

The person you're asking has been asked already and can't answer. The truth is it's a nonsensical hatred of Mormonism and has nothing to do with Travis and Jodi. Talk about deflection!

Women rarely kill men but for a couple reasons absent insanity: cheating/leaving or/and abuse. Alexander was doing all of that.

The news station I'm watching mentioned the costs of some other trials we've had in Arizona. The Baseline Killer was over $2 million along with one or two others. So this isn't the first pricey trial we've had nor will it be the last.

I heard that Jodi may not be allowed to communicate with Donavan now because she is a convicted felon...maybe she can get her brother or sister to keep up the Twitter account.

I'm legit curious as this is the first I've ever heard of it.

EDIT: Of the case in general. I've never heard of this before today.
None. Only the supposed testimony from Jodi. Jodi was caught lying about many things during the trial. In addition, former girlfriends testified that he was basically always a gentleman.

I am so proud of that jury. I was fearful that with such a high Mormon population in that area that a large number of the jurors might be Mormon and maybe opposed to the death penalty. That is in no way a negative remark about their religion, I just don't know how they view the DP. But they all were smart enough not be be blinded by all that defense crap about Travis, and I think some of that mud slinging actually hurt the defense.

Maybe we Floridians need to start looking to other States when we are looking for a jury pool..........the ones we found in Pinellas County for the Anthony trial certainly were a little brain dead.

But it does condone abuse of women and every alternative they have comes at great sacrifice and suffering for them and none for the man. Any woman who kills a man that she can demonstrate was abusing her receives a get of of jail free card from me.

Jodi could have walked away when the relationship was over. Jodi actually promoted her booty calls.
