I guess he doesn't know about all the many people who have murdered their abusers and can testify to what happened to them with no problem.

I was terribly abused for 15 years; it took me five years to actually get away (from the first time I knew I had to, to when I actually did get away). I have no problem remembering things that were done to me. There were many times after I got away that I wished I could get brainwashed to remove the horrible memories! There were times I wished I could take my head off and set it down somewhere just to get away from the thoughts and memories.

Granted, I did not kill my abuser, although I did think about killing myself, many times. I was lucky to get away with my life.

That's why I know Jodi is lying. If you are afraid of someone; if they abused you; you don't drive a thousand miles to go see them and have sex with them.

This whole trial makes me sick!!!!
That $250/hr pseudo-shrink makes me sick!!!!

Jodi, especially, makes me SICK!
Fox Terrier,

I, too, am glad you got away. Besides the costs to taxpayers in AZ, the MYTHS and LIES about true perpetrators/abusers vs. those accused by a person who under oath has told the jury she's lied to them, let alone to other before, I see the greatest opportunity from this trial for those who have truly endured Domestic Violence (with or without a sexual component), to speak out more.

Get the facts out like you did here. The defendant (and I don't like using her name) to me, makes a mockery of so many people who truly have experienced PTSD. If I were an attorney and she were my client, I would have tried to encourage an "insanity plea." However, from what I've read from lawyers, they can advise her, but ultimately, she has the power as the client to influence what they do or don't do, or who they do or don't call to the stand.

Perhaps an attorney could explain that last part better, as I find it interesting that the tax payers are paying attorneys to represent her, I've read articles that both of these attorneys would have liked to bail too like her original attorneys did, yet they haven't (or can't). Through all we've seen, it blows my mind to think that HER attorneys have to listen to what SHE thinks is the right think to do in her defense.

Post your story again in various places. Others need to know they can get away from an abusive relationship. And thank you for trusting us to probably recall horrible memories just writing what you did.

I look forward to your posts and how you've made your life better

MSR

On a side note, we shouldn't believe that the behavior of Ms. Arias and that of her now-deceased paramour are typical of members of the LDS Church.

I totally agree, Mouldy and am so glad you wrote that. As I recall when questioned about whether Aries was a "good Mormon or not," her answer was, "There is no such thing as a perfect Mormon." I don't know that any person on the earth is perfect, but I do know being in UT now and having spent many years in UT and surrounding states with Mormons, she is not typical of a "bad Mormon."

And most WOMEN do not plan their next sexual trist to happen within 36 hrs. after she's self-admittedly killed her boyfriend.

Sorry I can't rep more people. I don't understand why C-D will let me rep some and not others (even though I haven't repped them at all).

If she couldn't have him, as he certainly was trying to dump her and had started dating another, then she was made sure no other woman could have him, IMHO.

Kuddos to all who post so myths can be addressed !!!!


I still want to hear more about the assault she experienced at age 13 with a knife at her throat. If others think that isn't significant given how she slashed Alexander's throat, think again. Whether it's so much over the top given all the other stuff they have they don't bother to address it further is a different issue.

The detectives didn't find any photos of boys ... or female breast either ... Arias told doc quacksAlot that Travis had pictures of female breast on his computer too. Jodi kills Travis so he didn't have time to attempt to erase kiddie porn nor breasts and even if erased it would have been available to investigators on his hard drive. So all we have is Arias and once again we arrive at the jury question ""After all the lies you have told, why should we believe you now?"

You and I seem able to multi-task while getting the essentials of this trial. Of course, with an "expert witness" like Samuels on the stand for what, a week?????????????, one could go on a short cruise and not have missed too much.

I am on eastern time (daylight savings even) ... Arizona doesn't go on daylight savings time. So their 10 or 10:30 AM start for me is 1:00 or 1:30 PM. LOL I couldn't handle Nurmi when he had Arias on the stand and they dragged the court through her birth until present day. Now Willmott and the doc is not any better. But I could ramble on at $250.00 an hour.


My understanding is only 3-4 states in the U.S. allow the jury to ask questions. For me, that is probably one of the strongest interests on my part. The attorneys are limited by court rules for both the defense and prosecution of certain questions they can ask or how they can ask them. It appears to me, the jury is not.

The jury questions is what I look forward too. This is a first for me. Having served on a jury many times I know I have had questions not answered. While deliberating you can send a note out to the judge with a question but only as it relates to what was presented during the trial.

I, too, like Juan Martinez.

I just hope he doesn't come off to aggressive to the jury. At the Casey Anthony trial Jose Baez played to the jury .... "good morning ladies & gentlemen of the jury" ... "good afternoon ladies & gentlemen of the jury I hope you had a nice lunch!" He did this every day with a big smile!

In one way I can't fault the defense too much.

I don't think Nurmi even wants to be there.

Did you hear about/see on the net that the defendant apparently got ticked about something Samuels said today and flipped him off in court? It's worth checking out on HLN or probably YouTube by now.

No I haven't heard about that one. Just the pill or whatever she was taking if she was taking anything at all.

I agree with you Mouldy ... if Travis had been Catholic ... Pentecostal ... JW ... whatever Arias would have joined right in just to have Travis Alexander.

As the trial keeps on, HNL is going to have to change it's name to "The Jodi Arias Channel" 24/7 Coverage.
