For the longest time I thought that Jodi was asking for the Death Penalty to try to trick the Jury into giving her Life in Prison. You know- the old ‘reverse psychology’ trick. I thought- yeah, they hate her so much and she absolutely doesn’t want to spend the rest of her life in a cage (you know she’s so young, doesn’t smoke and her family has a history of longevity- though her Dad has cancer…) oh, and let’s not forget poor granny in the wheelchair almost comatose during the trial (but a spry old fox when filmed leaving the jail after seeing Jodi- at one point she looks like she is talking on a cell phone and jumps over a curb. And doesn’t even look down. You know even when I was young if I had to jump a curb I looked down at it as I jumped. Please go to you tube and check this out!) But I digress…I have now changed my mind about the reverse psychology and here’s why:
She wants to ‘win.’ She has asked for Death, believes they are going to give her Death, but she asked for it so she wins! She will appear to be happy with the decision thus taking the victory away from the public. She got what she wanted! And as an added bonus she can continue to play the martyr. Because well, you know she is a ‘survivor’ of domestic abuse. I was abused/stalked and got a restraining order and went into hiding. There is NO WAY on this Earth that I would drive 1/100th of a mile to see my abuser, much less 1000 miles! NO FREAKING WAY!!!!!
I have faith the jury will do the right thing. They (the defense) can put the Pope on to speak for Jodi, I don’t think it would do her any good. Those autopsy pictures are going to be forever burned in those jurors minds. There is no way they are going to forget those probably forever, but right now they are still fresh in their memory. I’m really glad to not have had to look at those. I don’t think I could have handled seeing those.
I saw the neck one by accident and it is too horrific. It is burned into my brain. Only a MONSTER could do something like that!
Exactly…..If travis was abusing her on 6/4/08, SHE HAD NO CHILDREN TO GATHER UP, to run out that d front door. She did have time to clean up the crime scene, drag him into the shower, rinse him off.
Would have taken her, what 60 seconds to run out the front door., WHAT WAS TA GOING to do, run out to grab her.
HE WAS TRYING TO GET OUT THE DOOR TO GET AWAY FROM HER.
Jodi WILL KILL AGAIN, she love the attention.
Grandma was without a wheelchair outside the building.
JODI needs to have the death penalty, after all, TA was alive when she slit his throat.
