Happy with the verdict.

I think that she thought she would just get slapped on the wrist as with many females who do things against the law. Time for more females who do wrong to take accountability like men have on the most part imo.

One thing I don't understand ... most defendants stand when the jury verdict is read ... why didn't Arias stand? Also all we saw on TV and my live streaming on computer was Willmott and Arias ... where was Nurmi?
My exact same feelings and questions. Besides, which attorney would allow her to make a comment to a reporter? I still think zsquirmy was completing his final invoice/ paperwork do he didn't have to be involved further

If she wants dead then we get rid of her sooner so it won't cost that much money. Thre is probably one person in prison who doesn't care to commit one more murder...

This.

I really believe this is/was the common theme between Arias and Casey Anthony. Females who do horrible crimes and get less punishment (if any) than males.

This is more an indictment of trash US media. Dont blame posters here, blame the networks inundating tv with 24/7 hysteria.

Grace represents corporate media, which cares about ratings ONLY. Yes, its trash. Other than the verdict, I did not care about the case, but its fault of the media, not people here that these 'witch hunts' are televised now 24/7 as "entertainment".

Look at the sponsors of HLN: write your complaints to them.

(Think about John Mark Carr "confessing" to the JonBenet murder...)

I don't believe for a moment that there was any other person involved in this murder. Jodi wouldn't hesitate to blame another person if she could.
well, yes it's true that false confessions do occur......

But regarding the tip that was phoned in to police by ART, I don't think she phoned it in in the beginning and then killed herself two years later. It seems like in the police report (please correct me if I'm wrong) she died of a gunshot wound to the head very shortly after calling in to say she thought a certain person knew something; the tip and her death occurred about a year and a half after TA's death, right? And she had taken out a restraining order against that person at an earlier time in between, allegedly. It seems like maybe she said in some report she'd had a friendship with TA prior to his death and had considered moving into his house as a roommate, while she and her husband were having difficulties or something??? But don't quote me on that, it might say in the police report. (Another point people have discussed is the unusual bullet trajectory, downward trajectory, strange angle for a suicide.) Supposedly another "suicide" ruling by the same coroner is under review, death of a police officer.

Regarding "Jodi wouldn't hesitate to blame another person if she could", well that depends on two things, (a) her knowing who (b) her not being afraid to tell, i.e. would she want to suffer the same fate as that girl or TA, or could she have believed her family was threatened, etc. It would have to be a pretty bad threat to make a person confess to a murder. IF it really was not her and was someone else, which is purely theoretical of course. But of course as you mentioned, sometimes people do give false confessions because they are unstable and someone convinces them they did something, or because they break down under a long period of questioning, or for a variety of mental reasons.
