Very few women have gotten the DP though because I think people have a hard time of the idea of putting a woman to death. If she was a man I think she would get the DP no question but being a woman I have a feeling it will be LWOP.

I have to hear all the closing arguments before I can vote so our poll is just another reason why this trial has to stay on schedule.

I'm leaning towards 8-12 hours, maybe 16.

I'm holding out on voting until I hear the rest of the closing arguments.

Relative to Jodi's "crying", I don't know about ya'll but when I cry, my whole face turns all red and puffy. I look a hot mess. Jodi's just squenching her eyes a bit and pinching her nose to make it red. She's not fooling anybody.

Definitely. With today being what it was, the rebuttal closing argument should be heartwrenching where it needs to be. I think JM's got it.

How do you all feel about that? It doesn't mean I have sympathy for the person who committed the crime..but how would you feel about deciding if someone should die? I'd like to think that if I had no doubt that they were guilty that I could put that aside and do it..but sitting here in my living room I can only imagine how hard it would be to do so.

I only hope these jurors can put the 2 parts aside and that they can decide the case without thinking about the sentencing after the verdict. I'm pretty sure that is what happened with CA...they were convinced that if they found her guilty it would mean death and none of them wanted to see her get the death penalty..they didn't get it is 2 distinct parts to the end of a trial.
I'm 100% with you. I would not find it easy, and I would struggle. I think in the end, looking at this case and what I know about it, that I could do it. The premeditation...and honestly, the amount of time she premeditated it DOES matter to me, because that was so much more time she had to rethink it and NOT continue...the brutality, the indignity, Travis knowing that the woman he had slept with hours before was now taking his life, and he knew he was going to die, his struggle to save himself. I do think that ultimately I'd make the choice for death, and feel confident it was the correct choice.

I just can't shake JM's description of what Travis went through that day, at the hands of that murderer.

I'm an ugly crier. And I can't hide it for a long time afterwards.

My eyes had more tears and were redder from seasonal allergies today than JA's eyes were from "crying" ... She is such a manipulative, lying phony ...

I can certainly understand the allergy eyes. Everything started sprouting out and blooming about a month ago and we've been suffering every since.

I am watching Nancy Grace right now and I had a good laugh when she said "Uh oh, there she goes. She's trying to cry."

In this case, the Punishment should be death. I would have NO problem giving it to her.

Even if they find her guilty, they still have the option of sentencing her to life and the judge will decide if that's LWOP or 25 years to Life.
It had better be at LEAST LWOP

I agree. I cried today during that portion of the closing. The brutality of this murder is beyond my coprehension. She is beyond vile, and I cannot put into words how I feel about Arias. To commit such a horrific and violent act against another human being, I just cannot fathom. And to think he was standing in front of a mirror as this was happening to him. The horror in the last moments of his life.





Nurmi comes off as the guy who hangs out at the 25 cent peep shows. He gives me the creeps.



While it would be a difficult decision to make, in this situation, I would be able to sentence arias to death.
Brutal. Brutal. She deserves death.

I would say that there may be a 1 percent chance in life you have put away the wrong person. This case has so much stacked up against Jodi. She is an adult and she knows right from wrong. There is no fog, no crime of heat of passion. There was a rage and anger because a man refused her and dumped her for once. That is not how she did things. She always dumped them and moved on for someone else. There is enough evidence of that in of it's self. Jodi has had problems all her life. And Jodi does not know how to take any responsibility for herself. She wants to blame everyone else. I think that Jodi's parents always stepped lightly around her and never really gave out full punishments. So Jodi basically ran the house. Right now I also know Jodi's mom is realizing that this is out of her hands and she can't do anything for Jodi.

I have peace that the jury is going to do the right thing. It is out of my hands and I can't do anything about it.
I hope and pray the jury does the right thing (as far as I am concerned).

Here too ... But my allergies really kicked in big-time about two weeks ago ... First it was just tree pollen, which was bad enough ... But now it's both tree and grass pollen, and it is wearing me out ... This year seems to be so much worse than last year ... I hope we both get some relief soon ...

Sometimes I just can't get over the bad timing of things. I do my usual Friday with DGD, and then I have an extra day to babysit next week...MONDAY of all days.

I have a love/hate relationship with Nancy Grace, but she's got some awesome lines. Catching up with JVM now, and then I must try to get some sleep!

That was so hard listening to it. I really hope it had even more impact in person.

I work all day tomorrow, 10 hour day, so will just be reading here, although a person who sits a desk away from me does say she can get the HLN's feed on the computer to see the live updates..just can't get any of the live streams.
