Well, I'm not the least bit surprised about the verdict, though I have not paid attention to every detail of the trial.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

Well  I guessed right, murder in the frist degree.How could the defense ever have proven she did not planned travis murder, when there was so evidence she did, but I was holding my breath thinking ok what if they do come  back not gulity like the Casy and most of these media trials and  Jodi had just walked away.The news did say there was one women jurer that was crying like she didn`t want to really give in to that verdict

I think based on evidence, they made the right decision.

I bet Travis's family are so relieved.  I thought it would be guilty but like Docyabut2 mentioned, other people who have seemingly being guilty have walked free from jail before today.   I bet there are many many people breathing a sigh of relief that she has been found guilty and the trial is finally over.

I think the Casey Anthony case was very different to this ...... for a start, she never admitted to killing her child, but Arias admitted killing Travis.

I keep on thinking when she said "no jury will ever convict me" or something like that. I think that came back to haunt her, and bite her in the *snip*. Sorry, but I just feel like, "what arrogance" (to say that).

She stated yesterday that she would prefer the death penalty rather than spend the rest of her life in Jail,some say she was playing mind games with the Jury,I say give her death she deserves it.

IMO, she is trying to manipulate the jury, through, reverse psychology, by saying that she wants the death penalty.  She's not
a very good actress!!!

But, life in prison would be good, too. She would waste away, watching herself grow older, lacking a larger pool of anyone to manipulate and use. I've heard prison is hard on your looks and she is not as beautiful as she thinks she is to begin with. I'm just thinking she will play the religious game - "Oh look how religious I am. I am close to God. I AM a good person." :rolleyes:  - and someone on the review board falls for it and they set her free after a few years. I've seen some of her so-called art work that has a religious theme. (Also, I see her portraits look a little like the celebrities she is trying to draw and a lot like - huumm - Jodi Arias!) Nothing against religion, but I don't think killers should be able to use it to their advantage. IMHO, she could kill again, because she never saw that she did anything wrong. I'm just glad that the jury saw through her lies.

From what I understand, at the very least, she's spending the next 25 years behind bars. (It'll be 25 years minimum before she could/would be considered for parole.)

A friend of mine who used to work in the justice system says "religion is the first refuge of every rogue" meaning when they go to jail, all of a sudden they've "seen the light". Yeah, right.

True enough,she came across as a cold souless heartless B**ch.Fortunately the Jury picked up on this,and any other verdict would have been a miscarriage of justice.
