    and we’re back. waiting on the jury. packed room now. Hearing one more witness…

  2. Hi cyber family! ♥ ♥
    I was at work, just caught up with the morning tweets.

    I hope the jurors are following all this computer mumbo-jumbo… (sigh)

    Detective Esteban Flores called back to the stand, one supposes to ask who was looking at the computer that night in 2009. #jodiarias

  4. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 18s18 seconds ago
    Wilmott asking Flores about #TravisAlexander ‘s roommates. Flores says all LDS. #JodiArias

  5. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 5s5 seconds ago

    Wilmott asking if any of #TravisAlexander ‘s roommates ever used his computer when they were living with him. Objection. #JodiArias

  6. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 14s15 seconds ago
    Willmott asks again. Flores said neither roommate said they used the computer. And she asks if there was any evidence they did. No.

    Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 14s15 seconds ago
    One had his own computer, Willmott says. Flores agrees.

    William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 10s10 seconds ago
    Apparently it’s about a tape. Defense wants to play a clip from the tape on the record for Flores. Jury is OUT of the courtroom#JodiArias

  11. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 21s21 seconds ago
    Seems the issue has to do with a film or audio clip Willmott wants to play. Stephens suggested Flores and Martinez listen in another room.

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 32s33 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    Billings says he wasn’t aware of TA and JA’s sexual relationship. He states Travis never said he was a virgin #jodiarias #3tvarias

  17. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 50s50 seconds ago

    Nurmi said the need to play the tape is ridiculous because Martinez was there. Martinez says if you want it in evidence, gotta play it.

  18. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 32s32 seconds ago

    Now playing interview with roommate. Roomie says he has own computer. Just said he never used Alexander’s.

    • Good. They can’t blame the roomates for viewing/downloading porn on TA’s computer. I’ma amazed Kermit hasn’t tried to pin it on them LOL!

  19. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 40s41 seconds ago
    tape indeed says he never used #TravisAlexander ‘s laptop. Flores says he doesn’t recognize the voice as the roommate. Been years.

    Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 37s38 seconds ago
    Flores says he doesn’t recognize the voice as the roommate’s. Martinez repeats that Flores doesn’t recognize the voice.

    Martinez says why don’t you just subpoena the roommate? WIlmott says it’s unnessecary and trial has “gone on long enough already” #JodiArias

    Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 31s31 seconds ago
    Stephens asks Martinez, who was at the interview if he remembers the exchange Willmott just played. He says no.

    • Please, Kirk Nurmi, subpoena them!!
      Ask them about the computer, as has been suggested!
      And while you have them there: ask them the first time they smell something horrible!
      Then call the ME and have him tell you how long TA had been dead!

  23. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 24s24 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Judge- Do you recall this question and answer Mr. Martinez Juan- No I don’t recall and I don’t doubt the authenticity. Subpoena the guy

  24. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 1m1 minute ago
    Wilmott asks about the interview now that the jury’s here. Flores says he didn’t know about the interview. Wilmott approaches for sidebar.

  25. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 49s49 seconds ago

    Det. Flores, isn’t it true that you just listened to a recording. Wasn’t it the roommate? “That’s what you are purporting.”

  26. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 28s29 seconds ago
    Flores was not in the interview, says he has no firsthand knowledge. But form of the question was “did you hear it on the recording”

    eve Krafft ‏@SKrafftFox10 38s38 seconds ago
    #jodiarias Det. Flores won’t say voice in Nurmi interview is indeed Zack Billings, Travis’ former roommate. Defense attorney Willmott irked.

    Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 33s33 seconds ago
    Flores: “I don’t know if it was him or not.” Willmott points out that Martinez was there. Does he have issues with Martinez? Objection.

    Willmott says so you doubt Mr. Martinez saying it’s him Judge sustains objection and we have a sidebar #jodiarias #3tvarias

    Frequent sidebars. Lots of white noise in courtroom. Atmosphere on and poppin’. #jodiarias

    Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 1m1 minute ago
    Willmott: Detective, you sat here while the jury was out of the room … and listened to a recording.” Yes.

  33. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 1m1 minute ago
    Willmott: Says that Martinez knew that it was the roommate. Martinez objects as to relevance. Overruled.

    William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 1m1 minute ago
    Wilmott finnally gets it in there. Someonne on the tape identified as Zach Billings said he didn’t use the computer. #JodiArias

  34. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 1m1 minute ago
    Martinez does cross. Starts with where evidence is kept at Mesa PD and how defense attorneys asked to see computer.

  35. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 24s24 seconds ago
    gotta say I chuckled when Martinez objected in the third person.

    (Wild About Trial ‏@WildAboutTrial 4m4 minutes ago

  42. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 16s17 seconds ago

    Martinez calls attention to when Lonnie Dworkin, original defense expert checked computer out of evidence locker in Dec. 2009.

  43. William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 23s23 seconds ago

    Is the property room open at 11pm? A: no, they shut down at 5pm every day. #JodiArias

    Juan asks if something can be viewed without the operating system coming on? Willmott jumps up and objects! #jodiarias #3tvarias

  50. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 23s24 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Juan- Without an operating system you can’t view pictures, get on web etc. Fl- You can’t drive a car without an engine #jodiarias #3tvarias

  51. The ONLY one who had any access to the computer on June 19, 2009 at 11:00pm would be someone from the state – PD, Det, Prosecutor, etc…. The defense had no way to access it at that time of the night….END OF STORY !

  52. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 16s17 seconds ago
    Martinez gets back to the roommate. The computer wasn’t an issue at that time they agree. Now to the tape.

    William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 21s22 seconds ago
    Martinez onto the tape he heard. Wilmott obbjects again and they go to the bench. #JodiArias

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 31s31 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    • Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 26s27 seconds ago

      On the tape we heard Nurmi ask roomie if Travis claimed to be a virgin. Martinez brings it up now and Willmott objects. Sidebar.

  53. And believe it or not there are corrupt police, prosecutors, and detectives in this world and stuff happens that shouldn’t happen at 11:00pm at night when normal working hours of an evidence room are shut down….

    • And unfortunately __ and to the detriment of all — many don’ t know or believe this.
      I am pretty certain Flores admitted in court just the other day, that the computer was not returned to the evidence room until the next day. I remember someone here exclaiming about that revelation.

  54. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 23s24 seconds ago
    Martinez now asks about the tape question whether the roommate used the computer.

      J- But that computer was in an office with door open and the defendant has made statements that she had access to it correct?! #jodiarias

    • Oh, PLEASE!!!! Gimme a fucking break!!!
      Lemme guess, Martinez is gonna blame JODI for the porn found in that computer???

    Another sidebar.

    William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 49s50 seconds ago

      • Everything is minor to flores: the labeling, the computer wake up, not writing it down in his report…. wtf? Is he THAT useless? I see him becoming janitor at the PD after this case is done. I hope the wife knows how to sow overalls! LOL

    • Thank you, Detective Flores…You have just made the DT’s case by stating that you “didn’t notice for years” and that you “wouldn’t create a supplement to correct something ‘this minor'” Really?? This just proves you would allow evidence to be falsely labeled and do nothing to correct….all goes to ZERO CREDIBILITY YOU HAVE !!!! And it may be “minor” to you but it will NOT be “minor” to the appellate courts !!!!

    Wilmt is asking about June 19th when laptop was released to Flores & how it was coded wrong on the paperwork. It says “out to forensic svs”

    William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 23s24 seconds ago
    This is the day that Maria Schaffer looked at the laptop. And Flores says what happened to the evidence is mislabled. #JodiArias

    • Isn’t that weird that the day the DT got to look at the computer with the Frog and Detective things are mislabeled. . . another typo? Is there a pattern forming?

      • There has *always* been a pattern. One of corruption. Same with TA, one of abuse and porn-addiction/pedophilia. But the haters/TA fans choose to ignore or downplay both. Go figure…

        • Maybe they all live that way. . . .maybe they all are sick abusing perverts. . .the Haters/TA fans I mean. That is why they can’t see anything wrong with his behavior. Boys will be boys……

    • Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 13s13 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

      Evid is put into a locker and locked. Flores says he’s rarely ever seen these people stay past 5pm in the evidence room but it’s possible

      • Yeah, he has rarely seen anyone in past 5pm but leaves it open, doesn’t he? So technically he didn’t perjure himself there….Someone did go in an access that computer on June 19, 2009 at 11:00pm and it is IMPOSSIBLE for the defense to have done that. That leaves only the state tampering with the computer at that time, period….

    Willmott is finished with Detective Flores. No questions from jury. 15 min recess called. #jodiarias

  65. Yanno – I’m beginning to suspect that the reason JM has a babysitter is that he has early onset Alzhiemer’s or something. Too much of the time he makes no freakin’ sense at all.

  66. Anything Detective Flores has testified to should be thrown out by the jury as not credible – his testimony is not to be trusted under any circumstances. He just proved today on the stand that he is willing to conveniently forget things and not remember things and change his previous testimony….how did this guy become a detective???

    • Remember the detective that obtained OJ Simpson’s blood specimen vial from the technician that drew it (from OJ in jail) & gave it to the detective to deliver to police evidence room? …But the detective carried it around in his car glove compartment for at least a day or so before delivering it to evidence room. …And, this was during the time (to my recollection) that the crime scene was still open. ..And then they found an incredible small trace of OJ’s blood on an outside gate at the crime scene, shortly after???
      …If i remember correctly ! !

  67. These jurors must be thinking that these are the worst keystone cops or the worst liars ever. If JSS can’t rule on this, the jury should nullify everything they can nullify.

  68. Lise Lasalle ‏@LiseLasalle 28s29 seconds ago

    State v #JodiArias trial has ended for the day. Trial will resume on Tuesday at 9:30am.

  73. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 30s31 seconds ago

    So if Stephens tells the jury to expect to be here in February, that pretty much tells us what her ruling will be on the motion to dismiss.

    • BB the courtroom was packed according to some tweets this afternoon awaiting her decision. She then not only ignores the fact that she promised there would be a decision today after the last witness, she slinks out without even mentioning it at all, instead telling the jurors to expect to be there in february.

  74. All because of perceived death threats and political calculations. Did anybody seriously think this woman was ever going to throw the case out, like she should have a long time ago?

    • Even without the ruling, don’t we already know the answer? She told the jury to expect the trial to go into February. Any ruling in favor of the defense would send the jury home for good.

  75. She is playing with a lot of people’s lives here. Both families, the jury’s families and jobs, not to mention Jodi herself. She needs to get off the pot and declare this over.

  76. I’m sure I saw a tweet by Michael Kiefer saying JSS will make a decision on the DP late this afternoon and she will NOT remove it. But, I can’t find the tweet now. Did anyone see it?

  77. So, will Judge Stephens issue a ruling today on the motion to dismiss intent to seek the death penalty? My guess: late afternoon and denied. this was his tweet

    • Travis Alexander, himself offended the Mormons and they still support him. He was really crafty at pulling the wool over their eyes. 🙄 They may sing his praises all day long but his own words prove different.

    • Yep, she’d rather send Jodi to death row than——- admitting this trial reeks of prosecutorial misconduct/corruption thus——— angering the lynch mob; they’ll be waiting for her outside that courtroom with their pitchforks!

      • I think she will always continue to do whatever she can to protect the prosecutor’s office and the police.
        There is such an immense network of vested interests here___ and JSS is an inextricable part of it__and they are going to do everything possible to
        protect themselves.
        I feel very bad for Jodi and her family and all of the people who care about them.

  78. Didn’t JSS say she wouldn’t make a decision until Flores was questioned, and then added to that by saying ‘and BN’s next questioning on the 20th’? Because I remember thinking that’s a Tuesday – why not Monday, but I didn’t think about a holiday.

    And if DP is taken off the table, isn’t it possible for the trial to complete, just without the death penalty? Like with parole or without parole? I’m don’t want to jump to conclusions yet. Does anyone know what’s on the Jury decision form for this penalty case? If DP is taken off, perhaps there are still other options for sentencing.

    I also think about what Alan said that Jodi is better off with a verdict on this no matter what it is, so she gets funding for her appeals, as I read it. 🙂

        • It’s Dr. G that has to come back and although I can’t find where it says it, I am sure that it was he that was to be coming back on the 20th. His testimony was interrupted by the tech guys and then he wasn’t available.

      • Now I really have to think. On Monday when she supposedly going to rule on it, there was a side bar and afterward we found out she was going to wait for Flores to be questioned Wednesday (today). Nothing was said about BN at that time.

        At the time I had all the usual twitters open and was reading all of them whenever there was a lull in court. I believe it was a tweet from one of them, and it occurs to me it was someone who was pro prosecution often, because I think it was after a comment that the defense was demanding more computer witnesses before she made her ruling.

        I remember being surprised that BN was even coming back again, and then the thing about it being Tuesday the 20th.

        Anyhow, ever since Monday I’ve been thinking we have to wait until at least the 20th to get a decision from JSS.

        I wouldn’t have been following anyone but people Pandora posts because that’s how I know of any of the tweeters.

        Hope that helps. I’ll look, too, but you guys are so much faster at this than I. Check JenDiaries tweets from Monday maybe.

        • I think they were done with BN because JM wanted to interview the two guys, Tony and Mr. Smith. Then Nurmi decided to put Mr. Smith on the stand because he was the one that had done the work.

          • I just read the decision not to take off the death penalty.

            You must be right. I just can’t figure out where I got that from, or why I’ve been thinking Tuesday will be such a big day. Maybe there was a reference to BN still coming back even after Smith was done. I’ll be interested to see who’s up Tuesday an to why that seemed so important – and so far away.

            • It is very confusing but once I thought about it, I do remember that Dr G is scheduled back on the 20th and the creep hasn’t cross examined him yet. Maybe BN does have more testimony as well.

    • This retrial is to decide death penalty or life imprisonment because they had a hung jury the first time. If death penalty is off the table she gets life in prison unless the Judge throws it out entirely because of coverups and lies by the prosecution, She has the right to declare a mistrial with prejudice and let Jodi free and the DT keeps asking her to do that based on misconduct but so far she is not letting her go 🙁

      • She has the DUTY, not the right, to dismiss this case with prejudice. She is incompetent, and that’s why she won’t do it.

  79. The plain fact is this case should be over with. This is a colossal waste of taxpayer money on a case that never should have been prosecuted. Anybody at this time who thinks this was premeditated murder either knows nothing about the case or is a member of the Mormon lynch mob.

  80. Looks like JSS will keep kicking the motion down the road. I get the feeling that she is physically ill.

    Jennifer and Kirk are hunting for frog.

  81. I think she will drop the death penalty via email. This was never a DP case, Mr. Martinez was kinda pushed by family for DP. The Alexanders may not think it but it would one of the kindest things the Judge could do for them. She would never be executed anyway, let everyone go home, heal and forgive.

  82. MC Superior Court ‏@courtpio
    State v #JodiArias: Judge Sherry Stephens denied the defendant’s Motion to Dismiss State’s Notice of Intent to Seek the Death Penalty.

    • As much as they can get away with.
      The defense did a very good job.
      Awhile back, I read some tweets from people who used to despise Arias, but were admitting the new-found evidence has begun to change their mind.
      And one person said she is so glad the jury did not decide on death in the first trial. She said she is ashamed that she had the attitude towards Arias that she did, now that new evidence has been revealed.

    • I just skimmed through JSS’s ruling. This is only a superficial impression on my part.The DT had 17 allegations & it looks the judge just brushed them all aside saying “didn’t affect the outcome of the trial.” On a few allegations, she claimed the DT didn’t follow-up or call/question certain witnesses or potential witnesses. Seems not one thing stuck to Martinez and his boys. Sandra Webber is right. Martinez is “Teflon Juan.” I hope others who read this ruling can find something positive. JSS did make a comment about if evidence is found on further examination of the computer, etc., etc. whatever. SMH

      • Thanks Maria. I didn’t see it.

        Looking for a bright side …..

        third, if I were on the jury I’d wonder what the heck was going on in Mesa PD’s evidence room right now.

        William Pitts ‏@william_pitts · 44m44 minutes ago
        second, that the defense scored more points toward the end, due in no small part to Flores not answering questions about what he heard

        William Pitts ‏@william_pitts · 45m45 minutes ago
        Here’s what I take from today: It had nothing to do with mitigation. But it serves to create an impression that “something” strange happened

        • I really hope today at least will have the effect of causing journalists to realize there is misconduct, even if JSS pretends there is not.

    • I believe she is doing just exactly what she has been instructed to do by the higher ups in their crooked justice system all of this done behind the “veil” of an evil religion. There is no way anyone will convince me she is not as corrupt as the prosecutor, the detective and the medical examiner. Everyone who lives in the United States of America needs to remember this when they try to slide a Mormon into position for the Presidency. It Can’t Happen!!!!! NO WAY!!!

      • Yah…That denial has been in the works for sometime and she had “help” with it.

        I hear that Romney is considering running again…

        • I know that if he is running I will be campaigning against him in a massive way! That is their goal to gain control of the US and it can’t happen. People have to WAKE the HECK UP! Everyone thinks that this trial is all about Travis Alexander but it is bigger than that, I’m afraid.

            • I agree with you 100% R.Love.
              If anyone is offeded, they need to wake up too.
              This IS abut more than Jodi.
              I hope and pray that the truth is opened wide and someone does the right thing and
              doesn’t keep it a secret!!
              I SO hope they are busted.

  83. In Arizona, judges are appointed and then the public votes yes or no whether to retain them. In many other states, they conduct regular political campaigns.

  84. I have always thought that the appointment of judges and the public voting system for or against is ripe for influence and misuse of the system. We have our problems in Canada too believe me but that system is really problematic. I even read some of the nasty comments about what was going to happen at the next election of judges because she was considered to be a defense supporter. It would have been a great surprise to see this judge take a stand *no pun intended”. But she seems to really drag things out and I read her bio which talks about her serving on an judiciary ethics advisory committee. This has the implication that she will want to let the jury make the decision based on all the information being laid out there. I was hoping for something different like you all but it’s not over until its over.

    • What does the law have to do with elections and the prejudices of the voters? The kind of mob mentality that we’ve been witnessing decides in a voter’s booth what is deemed just and lawful?

      Yes, we do have our own problems, but nothing like this shameful disgrace if prosecutorial and police misconduct. How it is tolerated is beyond me.

  85. Shaking my head…….the appellate courts will not be so forgiving and willing to excuse like JSS is so willing to do for the state……..She excuses away everything…….This is a DEATH PENALTY CASE and you can not excuse away Brady violations !!!

    • BB is there any other motion the DT can file?? Besides a mistrial??

      I’m sure Tuesday will be hell for Dr. G.
      I so want BN to have prof that there was child porn on Travis computer. I mean black and white. Something no one can dispute.

      • At this point the DT is still examining the original 2008 copy and JSS even mentions this in her decision and if more evidence comes forth I am sure that KN will be addressing it bc he has done a great job of making a record for Jodi for her appeals….or if more comes out in the coming days of testimony that shows more misconduct, etc….however it may be like beating a dead horse as JSS has shown her true colors here in this gross decision. It may take a US Supreme court decision in this case as I am a bit nervous that the AZ appellate courts will be any better.

        • As I read the decision, it seems that KN failed to put on testimony and evidence regarding some of the issues. That surprised me. If KN really failed to put on evidence per the ruling then there is no record on appeal to take up. And of course, the hurdle is going to remain that if (and when) the DT finds more evidence to suggest a Brady violation, then they will have to return to the trial court and start the fiasco again.

  86. I’m just sick at my stomach.

    I knew this was coming and still it’s a shock.

    clear cut, everything else aside – Melendez LIED when he testified that there was no porn or viruses on the laptop, and and Martinez PROVED the lie in his own damn response to the charge of misconduct

    clear cut – the original copy of the hard drive was withheld from the defense

    how is that okay?

    I think I’m gonna get drunk and sleep for a week.

  87. The Burden is NOT on the defense to uncover the hidden evidence that has been stowed away for years and years…..She is wrong and will be overturned in higher court….

    • The Defense is doing just that; ferreting out the exculpatory evidence for everyone to see.
      I don’t mean to be ‘Polly Anna’ but the more the Defense can uncover the better.
      Everyone of us is upset, but we still have right on our side it just has to be shown in court.

  88. The fact that LD stated ever so briefly in court that he saw porn on the computer then quickly retracted that statement under threat from JM can not now be used to say that the DT was duly and properly notified that there was porn on the computer and bc they failed to follow up too bad, we are going to just go ahead and kill Jodi………LD retracted his statement as JM basically told him that he had said there was NO PORN on the computer during his interview and LD agreed. The original mirror image from 2008 was not disclosed until just a few precious days ago …6 YEARS LATER !!!! Are you kidding me !!! The 2009 image was NOT the same and porn had been deleted when the computer was tampered with by the state….How can she say that this does not matter and would not have affected the outcome of Jodi’s criminal trial?? It has everything to do with Jodi being able to receive a fair trial according to her constitutional rights.

  89. Do you suppose JSS didn’t take the DP off the table b/c that would confirm (or magnify) the prosecution’s misconduct. If all, or many, of Martinez’s cases have to be re-examined, it could run into millions & millions of dollars with retrials, lawsuits, etc. But, he & others will have to pay the piper sometime. “They” must be having lots of discussions as to how to get out of this mess. I wonder if they regret not letting Jodi off with a light sentence now b/c all the corruption may have stayed buried then.

    • I like the way you think coldcase53 🙂 !
      ♥ Praying for Jodi, Family, Defense Team and Team Jodi! They might believe they won the battle but we will never give up until Jodi Arias is FREE!!! (((((((JODI))))))

  90. From my read of the ruling, the court acknowledged there may have been errors and even prosecutorial misconduct. But without evidence of *intent* to poison the trial, the next question necessarily becomes whether the jury decision to convict would have been different had the errors and misconduct not happened. Since Jodi confessed (in both phases of the trial) and even confessed in the penalty phase to lying to Flores, the answer is a resounding “no.”

    Also from my read, all of the evidence, testimony and arguments relating to this motion and matters of exculpatory evidence goes to one issue — Jodi’s credibility. The exculpatory evidence was nothing like evidence that tended to show someone else killed Travis (i.e. someone else confessed and the state withheld the confession). And if Jodi confesses and admits lying then the issue of Jodi’s credibility was always in the jury’s discretion. Higher courts will always give deference to the jury that actually saw and heard the witnesses (including Jodi) testify.

    There has to be an analysis of *how* the errors and misconduct would have likely changed the guilty verdict. And therein lies the reason that defendants should not testify.

    On a separate note, our country needs to re-evaluate (1) why we allow cops to lie to interviewees and suspects. The lies set into motion a series of decisions and events that would not otherwise happen; and (2) trials by social media.

    That said, I remain in Jodi’s corner and support Jodi Arias. G-d bless Jodi, her defense team (especially her appellate defense team) and her family.

  91. #IamJodi- this injustice shows that any of those in US especially Arizona could find one day they are in same position in a corrupt court, surrounded by a corrupt Prosecutor, corrupt police, & corrupt Judge. This case has been corrupt from word go, the lies, the bullying, the false charge, it should have being no more a charge than (domestic manslaughter) because it was a domestic case which involved abuse of one party, (Jodi) defending her self from a total abuser, (Travis). We have all the proof of that over the first trial & this trial.

    The Judge today, must have already written her (ruling) report before the trial resumed, she doesn’t seem to care about all the new evidence regards the computer or about the lies Flores the (Trained Lapdog) of the State spits out. She hadn’t the courage to say it in the court, she skedaddled off to hide somewhere & then release it. Today she made a further mockery of Justice, a scapegoat of Justice, & a very bad decision which will reflect on her even worse than the lies/cover-up/bullying throughout trial reflect/ed on Martinez. She showed today how she is weak & incompetent & a slave to the corrupt system she is a part of…a clone of injustice that Martinez is.

    This trial is not over by any means, & I still am feeling there is every chance the good days will come when the lies of the case will weigh heavy on their shoulders that they’ll be shamed into doing the right thing, the only thing, that can show they are any way decent to not just halt the death penalty but to free Jodi altogether or at least free her on bail & prepare a new trial. On the charge as I said, of (Domestic Manslaughter) until that happens this case will continue to be a farce, the court will be a sham, & their idea of Justice will be a total “Lie”.

    At the beginning of giving evidence as a witness you know how it is, you promise to be truthful to in court, when you hold the bible & say, “I swear by Almighty God that the evidence I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth”, (in this case on the state side we have heard only lies, day after day after day) by the prosecution, the Mesa County police & now the Judge, nodding & bowing to the bullying of the Prosecutor & forgetting her duty to Justice as “Judge” in this supposedly so called “Court of Law”.

    God, will work his own “Miracle” here, “Just you watch in the coming days, weeks.

    Jodi will walk “Free” from this “Hell”.

    PS. #IamJodi…& till this trial is over & fairly adjudicated that what we all are, Jodi. Now let’s work this “Miracle”!

      • Thanks R, I enjoy reading yours & all the posts here, seems I picked the right team to join & we will win.

        Do you/did you hear that Barry Gibb the surviving member of the Bee Gees is writing music based on Jodi’s trial? I think he hates the fact that she was given a death verdict & tried by media.

        • Yes, I have heard that about a year and a half ago and it would be wonderful if he did actual do it. Grew up listening to the Bee Gees wonderful memories!
