HLN's Nancy Grace is on 'Starting Point' talking with John Berman and Christine Romans about the latest developments in the Jodi Arias penalty hearing. On weather Jodi Arias will take the stand again during this stage of her sentencing, Grace says that, 'wild horses couldn't drag her away,' from the witness stand, and goes on to state that last night 'Arias was tweeting from behind bars again.
However, while Grace thinks she will want to take the stand again, she does not think it will help her case. Grace states, 'The last time she took to the stand for 18 days she got a guilty verdict.
My question is: Do defendants awaiting a life/death determination normally apply makeup for the event? Jodi's face has been squeaky-clean throughout this horrendous horrifying trial. Today she has mascara, blush, lipstick, et al, in preparation for the final verdict. It seems to me she's readied herself for the verdict seems almost as though it was known in advance.
In a close-up of Jodi Arias today on HLN while she was smiling and laughing during a conversaion with a bailiff, it appears that she has bandaid type patches on her forehead. Is it possible she is receiving tranquilizers in this manner?
I think Jodi should get death and Nancy Grace should get life in prison without the possibility of being on TV again.
Way too much attention has been given to this situation. With all the well educated guesses being made we honestly still don’t know what really took place. I am all but certain neither party can claim innocence, one person in this relationship just decided that she would win.
To actively make a decision such as this, one has to decide what was taken from them was more precious than life. What was taken from her the world will never know, nor do I think it cares to know.
As for what he did I have no clue, and as for if the response to his actions was warranted I would venture out to say more than likely not.
I understand that society does not want people who appear to be unstable in such a way as Jodi roaming the streets. But seriously… why put so much time and effort in bringing this to the public eye which has no say in the process, makes no lasting decision as to guilt or innocence, and have no sentencing power?
Here’s what we do know, at the end of the day Jodi made a decision to murder a man for reason we may never know. It was brutal, unfortunate, and caused a family pain. She is responsible and even if she wanted to could not undo what has already been done. She will pay with her life, her hopes, and her dreams for what took place in one way or another. Regardless of the decision rendered by a jury, her life is at an end and nothing can and or will ever change this simple fact.
The only time Jodi Arias is upset is when she sees she can't fool someone. Like the defense attorney. He said it exactly like it was. He did a great job. And I do believe in an eye for an eye. There's no fear for these murderers today. What a terrible loss of Travis Alexander. He was a beautiful man.
