She is about to leave the country club and go into the belly of hell.

Nope, if that is a "victory", then it is a victory for those of us who are haters.

Hope you rot in there, Jodi !!!!!!!!!!!!

Be sure to send a lot of picture postcards to Jodi...remind her of what she'll be missing.

Just be careful to not put your return address on them. If she gets out in 20 years she's going to look up her number one fan, you betcha!

Sadly, by not rendering a verdict today, the jury postponed justice and ,in some ways ,did condone the killing of Travis .

I don't know how you going to find a jury that is not prejudiced. This story has been on the news every night here in Phoenix for months. Jurors on this case have been threatened making it all the more difficult. The prosecutor may just decide to let her have life. As the poster above said, that is hardly a walk in the park and it is justice in many of our states and the rest of the civilized world.

She can't get out in 20 years. She can never get out. Either way she dies behind the walls.

I was right, I guessed we'd have a hung jury. Death penalty statutes vary from state to state. I like the statute we have in my state. It requires a unanimous verdict to condemn someone to death. There is no such thing as a "hung jury". The prosecution either gets 12 unanimous votes for the death penalty, or the perpetrator is sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

Some would question why "unanimity" should be required. While I support the death penalty in some cases, I believe that death is such a permanent unchangeable punishment that it should require all 12 jurors to agree.

Jurors are questioned during voir dire and are asked something like this: Can you see some circumstances in which you would impose the death penalty? If the juror answers "yes" than he may serve on the panel. People are excluded from serving (properly so) who say they cannot see any situation in which they would impose a death sentence. This eliminates hard core capital punishment opponents from serving.

I think perhaps the prosecutor ought to agree to let Arias be sentenced to life imprisonment (without parole) and call it a day. The taxpayers deserve to save the money. The outcome of a second penalty hearing will probably be the same. Finally, as bad as I feel for Travis's family, their feelings should not dictate the outcome of this.

Haha, if Jodi thought she had kinky sex with Travis, just wait until she gets with some of the animals she will be spending the rest of her days with. They LOVE cute little white girls like her in prison.

In a couple of years she will look like that "lady" who does her FaceBook for her.

That this goes to yet another jury is ridiculous in my opinion. If the jury cannot agree on a death sentence, then it should default in life in prison without the possibility of parole. Or default to the judge's decision.

How in the world are they going to find an unbiased jury at this point?

A group of 20 somethings who don't keep up with trials, there's an abundance of those.

If you went to the relationships forum and asked about the case, half would be unfamiliar with the trial particulars with the exception she received 1st degree murder unless they googled.

Prison without parole is an option. Society may be safe from Arias, Arias won't be safe from inmates unless she receives total confinement 23hrs a day.
