I've been following this case since it happened.  This chick is crazy as shiat. If you watched the trial online you saw all the nekkid photos and all that.  Wowza.  Slit his throat, shot him in the head, and stabbed him repeatedly.  Yeah, self-defense.

What really scared me was the supposed expert on domestic abuse that truly believed she was a victim of domestic abuse. I thought that was going to get her off the hook. There are "experts" in domestic abuse that believed her story and will testify to that fact. Ridiculous

Baz744: BeatrixK: Ah Jodi - the ol' self-defense-I-wuz-abbuusseed shiat didn't fly?  Ya don't say.

This case was fascinating for many reasons:

1.)  The crazy biatch had pictures she inadvertently took while killing him. (She tried trashing the camera in the washing machine.  Digital cameras, FTW!)  Seriously creepy to see a picture of Alexander posing in the shower, and, like three minutes later, she's dragging his bloody body across the floor.  These were taken several hours after they took nekkid pics of each other after sex.  So she bones the guy, packs her shiat to leave, and kills him while he's cleansing her stank off him.
2.)  First, it was ninjas/people dressed in black.  Then, she fessed up that she killed him in self defense - 29 stab wounds, slit his throat, and shot him in the head.  But it was self defense!
3.)  She rents a car, carts several gas cans to AZ with her, changes her hair color before going, shuts off her cell phone, and mucks up the license plates before showing up to his place....but it wasnt anything she 'planned.'
4.)  biatch can remember what she ordered from starbucks...but killing him is all 'foggy.'
5.)  She spent the longest time on stand of any murder defendant in history - and believe me - it was an exercise in crazy lying.
6.)  I don't even wanna know what they did with the pop rocks and tootsie pops, but I'm guessing she had the worst yeast infection in the history of EVER!
7.)  She claimed he broke her finger and she caught him crusing kiddie porn...but there was no record of it on his computer and she never came up with any evidence of medical treatment for said finger (she said Travis bandaged it.)

biatch is weapons-grade crazy.  Glad she's gonna fry.  Can't wait to hear what she says when she makes her jury statement.

Jodi Arias is a murdering psychopath, though I would like to say that the bolded parts aren't actually inconsistent with the proposition that she as an abused woman who killed in self-defense. No, I'm not saying she was an abused woman who killed in self-defense. I am saying that:

1) An abused woman who killed in self-defense might be overtaken with emotion at the time of the killing, and unleash her pent up frustration and anger on her abuser's body.

2) Even an abused woman with a terrific memory who killed in self-defense might suppress the memory of the killing, which would surely have been a traumatic experience for her.


While PTSD symptoms could be cited in forgetting the incident, she had no symptoms in regard the the other multiple times she was "attacked and beaten." She didn't forget shiat

everytime we let some woman who OBVIOUSLY is not abused to that extent use that excuse, the more it takes away from a woman who actually has that happen.

If she had gone there in cold blood, just driven there, none of this rental car, hair dye crap, stuck a knife in him and was done with it she'd be free tonight using the "I was battered excuse." With all the intent and pre-meditation in the world.

Agreed.  I don't get how people express outrage at crimes like these (whether the criminal is male or female) and then express glee at the thought of the criminal being raped.  It seems to me that if you can cheer at the idea of a person being raped, you're not much better than the criminal.

I hope you're joking...

No, I'm serious.  I'd think "rape" falls under cruel and unusual punishment. Are you really in favor of it?

I have no sympathy for this woman, or for anyone who commits crimes like this.  I'm not in favor of state-ordained rape.  Call me odd.

mongbiohazard: CynicalLA: BeatrixK: My guess is that she had the camera on a wrist strap, and, while she was getting stabby, she hit the button on the camera.  I think she tried deleting them before she ran them through the washing machine, but AZ computer forensics guys were able to retrieve the data.

Is there anyway to destroy a hard drive so forensics guys can't retrieve the data?  It seems like they are always able to get something.


You don't have to physically destroy the hard drive. There is software which will render hard drive data utterly unrecoverable. You can wipe the HDD with random data multiple times. DOD security standards say a drive is rendered safe with something like 7 passes, but there is free software which will overwrite 35 times or more.


Overwriting the disk is OK for DOD so long as the disk is going to be reused within DOD confines and the material on the disk was no greater than classified.  For a disk that is being removed from service or that contained secret or above data, the disk has to be physically destroyed and rendered unreadable.

Jodi is so certifiably psycho and her behaviors and actions so calculated, that it makes me wonder who else she's offed, and gotten away with it?

You forget that the "expert" is paid to say such things. They charge nauseating amounts per hour to testify on someone's behalf. If I were any expert at this circus trial, I'd charge triple just for the headache of it.

Dion Fortune: I'm telling ya, her conviction just shows all the misogyny and patriotism in the world.  It shows how society does not take domestic violence seriously.  Arias said she was abused, why would she lie?  Why do we question women's voices?  If a MAN stabbed his ex-girlfriend dozens of times in the shower and shot her then everyone would just be asking, "what did she do to make him mad?"  Men get away with everything in the patriarchical society and women get no sympathy.


Um. No.

themindiswatching: Maybe I've been reading too much about rape culture, but "PMITA/LMITA prison" doesn't seem funny to me any more.

/she will get the punishment that she deserves though.


The term rape culture makes me want to pilage through the amazon stealing cultural artifacts. I hate this is being called "culture" which gives the idea that there is some backroom where all the guys get together and speak the unwritten rule that rape is okay, just a wink and a nod and we all know. Or that if you make a joke about rape you suddenly think it's okay, or condone it.

Just because some people in that highschool in Steubenville thought it'd be better to help cover up and avert a scandal, doesn't mean that's the way most people feel. You will never end rape, just like you'll never end robbery, violence, or drug abuse. So we can deal with real situations that arise with the seriousness needed, improve on things that need to be improved, and crack jokes about things we fear. Or we can pretend that if we don't ever do anything but say how wrong it is, aggressivley educate the youth on how wrong it is, and how we as a society won't tollerate it that it'll suddenly go away, I'm going to go ahead and call that "non-rape culture."

If you'll reread my post, you'll see I didn't say she did. Like you, I disbelieve her testimony because of a lot of other factors. But as a general principle, the argument "She claims a foggy memory of one incident, yet she remembered another wholly unrelated, non-traumatic incident, therefore her claim to a foggy memory is false" is a very weak inference at best. That's all I took issue with in OP's post.

pedobearapproved: everytime we let some woman who OBVIOUSLY is not abused to that extent use that excuse, the more it takes away from a woman who actually has that happen.


It's pretty clear the jury didn't let her get away with that excuse. Neither did I say she should get away with it. In fact, OP's first remarks could be understood as an assault on the notion of Battered Woman Syndrome itself. I was supporting the general proposition merely by calling attention to a flaw in OP's reasoning.

If she had gone there in cold blood, just driven there, none of this rental car, hair dye crap, stuck a knife in him and was done with it she'd be free tonight using the "I was battered excuse." With all the intent and pre-meditation in the world.

I actually doubt that, but maybe.

Just a thought...

you know how prisons have prison work programs where people can do difficult labor at the benefit of our corporate overlords?

Well... What if that work were to involve, say, "servicing" the community?  On camera.

Baz744: BeatrixK: Not ONE of his ex GF's testified to anything regarding a past history of abusive behavior from Alexander. Now, while I don't think the guy walked on water - he certainly had no history of physically abusive behavior. Also...hard to understand how he got so many knife wounds on his back, plus the whole practically decapitated part if she was 'deathly afraid' of him/he was menacing her? Also - why even make up a story of the black-clad intruders: If it was self defense, why bother calling his phone and leaving him voicemails after she knew she'd just left him lumped in his shower? Why try to cover her tracks so well and feign ignorance?

I don't believe he abused her. All I'm saying is your logic on the particular point that the violence done to the body disproves the story of abuse is faulty. There's plausible reason why the victim of longstanding abuse would do violence to a body. Hence, your inference from the violence done to the body to the absence of self-defense is a weak one.

BeatrixK: I'm sure it was very traumatic for her:

Once again, you have missed my point. I don't think Jodi Arias's memory is foggy at all. My point is only that someone who killed in self-defense, especially after years of abuse, could very plausibly suppress the memory of the killing. Hence, the inference from her foggy memory to a guilty mind is a weak one.

You listed out this series of propositions which you felt undermined her self-defense story. I took issue with your logic on two of them. I agree with your ultimate conclusions though. I'm like a math teacher grading you down because your work was bad, even if your final answer was right. Kind of dickish, maybe, but I was really just making conversation.


I was told there would be no math!!!!

Simply put this woman is jack-knife crazy and no jury in the world was gonna let her walk. Tho I didn't follow it or tape every "episode", I knew who this nutjob was. Being a believer in the death penalty I think she should get what she wants....to die. Saves the AZ taxpayers a fortune and gets get off this earth asap. There, my two cents. Piggy bank now empty.

BeatrixK:

Seems like the closest thing she had to any 'evidence' of injury was that broken finger...which wasn't healed properly:  if I were one of her attorneys, an x ray of said finger would have been front and center of my defense.

IANAD. That said, there is no xray to show - the finger isn't broken. I can comfortably hold my finger in that exact position. If the finger is injured and she is not faking, it is a flexor tendon injury. ( you can google but there are some surgery pics so graphic image warning, but there are also pics that look the same as her bent finger) The thing is, you can end up with a flexor tendon injury from a minor incident. One of my kids did it by tripping and jamming the tip of the finger into the wall. Not that hard, either. So even if she's not faking, there is no reason at all to think that it was the result of a beating. She could've whacked it on something. Or done it when she was violently murdering her ex boyfriend.

calbert: Boojum2k: calbert: who?

I only know this name from greenlit Fark headlines and have never bothered to really click any of the stories.

it doesn't really seem to matter much to anyone outside of whatever geographic area this is occurring.

can someone explain it in a nutshell?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jodi_Arias

and why is this a newsflash then?

nothing remarkable about anything that I just read, basic run-of-the-mill murder.

maybe it's because I don't have cable and that's why I'm not seeing it supposedly on every news channel.

seems more like a local-interest story, not national headlines

/*shrugs*


I heard two people talking about it yesterday and had no clue who they were talking about.

Then I found it on Fark this morning and the case came to me only because I saw it on Dateline a couple months ago.  When I saw the episode I knew she was toast.

Fry in hell biatch.

usernameguy: An Arizona jury found Jodi Arias guilty on Wednesday of first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend in a capital trial that riveted America for months with graphic sexual evidence and bizarre testimony.

OMG!  If you want a giant, heaping pile of WTF, you gotta go read/check out the evidence.  First of all, she's freakishly articulate for a psycho hose beast.  The 48 hours interview (first one) where she talks about the black-clad intruders sounds oddly plausible the way she describes it, and how calm and collected she is.  However, she did't fully think out her grand plan - since they'd taken sexy pics of one another about 4 hours before she stabbed him (29 times) slit his throat to the point he was almost decapitated...then de/cides she wasn't sure she'd killed him real good, and shot him in the head.  She was apparently taking some posed shots of him in the shower, then got stabby/slicey/shotty, and like, 3 -4 minutes after the last shot of this guy alive was taken, there's a shot of her dragging his bloody corpse across the floor.  Once detectives told her that 'Hey, ya know that camera that was thrown in the washing machine and run through the cycle with bloody sheets and stuff - yeah - we got pics outta that.' Then her story changed to 'He abused me, waahhhhhh.  Killed him in self defense...wahhhhhh'.

They were mormon, and also had a freaky sex life that involved tootsie pops and pop rocks, and had some phone sex tapes she recorded.

It's a study in cray-cray on an epic scale.

JohnnyApocalypse: Anyone check out her latest last-ditch effort to save her neck? "I prefer the death penalty. ANYTHING but life in prison!" Nice reverse psychology. We'll see how that works out.

Well I'd rather have the death sentence than life in general pop at a PMITA prison. The needle after about 20-30 years of appeals while safely isolated to avoid shankings and rape sounds better than either getting shanked in much less than 20-30 years or dieing in about 20-30 years of AIDS and/or HEP C from the prison rape.
