  1. Hi gang I haven’t posted in awhile, but have been here in spirit. Praying that Sherry gets it right and dismisses for prosecutorial misconduct today Jodi should never have been charged with murder 1 in the first place.

  2. What did the media do? They insisted on letting the world know what Jodi is really like and how diligent and kind she was and how much she was taken advantage of in her loyalty. There was not one question about sex (that I saw) until it got to Travis and how quickly and deviously he sexually moved in on her. It shows just enough of Travis’ complete mental and physical manipulation of her from the get go. AND! JM didn’t get to cross with all the lurid sex she had with all the other boyfriends! We all know how polished he is at destroying people!

    The jury can be told to ignore the whole thing, but regardless they are sitting there with an image of the real, dedicated, manipulated loving Jodi that cannot be expelled from the brain. How could any trial accomplish that in all of trialdom?

    We know JM wants to sink his teeth into everything she said. Perhaps this is a gift that it stands, highly publicized as it is, and the jury is told to ignore everything they heard from her. Next up is much more about the corruption of the prosecution trying to hide evidence until that also hits home with the jury.

    Maybe Jodi’s angels swept in and created this whole situation.

  3. Reflection:
    The Prosecution charged Jodi with PREMEDITATED felony murder.
    In an effort to take the premeditation out of the mix, her attorneys have and are disseminating the prosecution’s case.

    The only part that has not been disseminated is ‘grandpa’s gun’. If the prosecution wants to bring that in as a FACT, he must have Jodi charged with that crime and prove it in a court of law. Otherwise it is not a proven fact of evidence.
    The gas can issue has been disproved.
    The color of hair has been disproved.
    Travis ‘not asking her to detour to see him’ has been disproved.
    Her knowledge of his ‘pedophilia’ tendencies (which set up ‘her lies’ for Martinez to use) has been disproved, or is about to be.

    The prosecution lied to the defense about the porn on the computer.
    The prosecution withheld this evidence.
    The prosecution tampered with this evidence.

    • I posted this after today’s post was up. Please feel free to critique!!

      I started reading the testimony yesterday and got physically ill to my stomach.

    • Right on all counts Carol.

      Reading through the testimony, especially her initial meetings with Travis was heartbreaking.

      Today I send out prayers for peace and comfort for Jodi and I am hopeful that Mr. Smith is able to testify and not be verbally abused by Juan or the haters.

    • There is no proven premeditation to this crime. It will have to be recharged to continue.

      God and his angels are with YOU, Jodi

  4. Sending my thoughts and prayers once again to Jodi and her Defence Team. May Mr. Smith feel our support when dealing with Malware Juan.

    June 19th, 2009 23,000 or so files were modified in a 2 hour window #jodiarias #3tvarias

    • Lindstrom completely fails to grasp the significance of the evidence that the state not only denied the existence of a porn history, not only withheld the best copy of the computer, but also deleted thousands of files. One of Juan’s two main arguments against self-defense was simply that Jodi lied to the jury about other things, a major example being Travis’s use of porn and sexual interest in children. The attempted destruction of exculpatory evidence is an especially horrible Brady violation. So chalk Monica up as another lawyer whose commentary on this case is ignorant.

  20. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 22s23 seconds ago

    Nurmi is back- Smith says that these virus’s did not redirect to sites such as teen porn that was on the machine. It was manually typed in

  45. The virus hijack question and answer is really important bc it shows that it was NOT a virus that took the computer to the porn sites, but it was a human directing it there !! TA !!

  46. Steve Krafft ‏@SKrafftFox10 22s22 seconds ago

    significant historical record of porn access on travis alexander computer, says #jodiarias defense expert

    • It should have been M2 from the beginning. I believe it was pushed to DP on family wishes. Forgiveness as Pandora pointed out is really the only way to heal, I pray they can start healing and end court battle, it won’t bring him back

      • I have not seen how they profit from this, I believe it is anger. they did not wish that to happen for profit. I feel bad for the Arias family when they are accused of profiting because I don’t think they are. I dislike when Jodi is called bad names, she is not a bad person, one action in the heat of passion/anger/self defense or otherwise should not end her life. Life without a chance of release is also not fair, everyone needs to have a goal to work for and release is a goal. Anyway I wish people would stop trashing the families on both sides, it doesn’t help anyone

      • I’m sorry D, if I offended you but I meant the ” Alexanders” have profited from this trial. They have cashed in and have been very open about their fund raising. You should check that out, I think it would amaze you. The Arias are a totally different story, they have not profited in any way only trying to help their daughter who was attacked, abused, overcharged from the beginning and wrongfully convicted. Everything they have raised will go to fund for Jodi’s appeals as well it should. Yes, I agree, everyone needs to show mercy and forgive and move on. . . I just do not see any attempt being made for that by the Alexander family. If looks could kill Jodi would be dead by now. 🙄 This whole tragedy is sickening and disgusting at best. . . the prosecutor, the detective and the family of Travis wanted the Death penalty so here we are. Sorry though, I didn’t mean to upset you. It is only my simple opinion.

        • The Alexanders really do need to forgive and go find peace, I don’t understand why they choose to carry hate, it is a burden, forgiveness frees. That goes to Jodi as well, she needs to forgive herself, learn and move on. I think the “secret” transcript shows she is doing that, it took 2 years but she faced it, has forgiven herself and has expressed true remorse. There is nothing more she can do. I do pray the Alexanders can/will, then they can accept the past can not be changed, look forward and understand she deserves release at some time, Jodi is not a threat to the general public.

          I just hate seeing anyone trash the arias or alexander families. Both have been thru enough and stoking any flames is cruel.

          • Tanisha and her brother have stated on more than one occasion that they want a front row seat to the ___ no matter how long it takes. They have no intentions of ever forgiving or moving on, and it is to their own detriment. Four million dollars of donations has been reported and they are still asking for more, while the taxpayers are paying for this trial and retrial which has been fueled by the family’s hatred and revenge and an overzealous cheating prosecutor. Also, their behaviour in the courtroom was simply not fair to Jodi and was testifying without cross.

          • R. Love was pointing out something legitimate though; the Alexander’s have received a staggering amount of financial donations from their supporters, and the amount and the entire circumstances regarding these donations are HIGHLY unusual.
            You likely will be stunned by what you find.
            By contrast, not only has Jodi suffered from being imprisoned for years (even before being sentenced) due to an ASTRONOMICALLY huge bail she could not afford, WHICH IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL __ but ‘Arizona ‘tries to get away with whatever they can get away with.
            Travis supporters have very vocally decried, protested against, and, at the very least, entertained, and most likely actually did try to prevent Jodi or her family from receiving any sort of help at all___ help that is/ was sorely needed to raise money for her appeals.
            Even the effort of Jodi supporters were viciously attacked merely for trying to donate to her canteen.
            Jodi’s family have been viciously ridiculed for their efforts.
            I feel bad for the Alexanders’ loss, but several years have gone by now, and there are certain aspects of the present situation that stand out.
            Regardless of what the Alexanders believe about the innocence or guilt of Jodi, they have relentlessly pursued their desire to have Jodi murdered, even after years of being in the actual presence of Jodi’s family, time after time.
            The Alexanders have received unprecedented support and attention, and compassion from the public, while Jodi’s entirely innocent family have received almost none, and have been mocked and reviled.
            The Alexanders have suffered tremendously, but they have never shown any compassion towards Jodi’s family.
            The Alexanders ARE the ones who want Jodi dead. It was not enough for them that the first verdict ended with no decision for death.
            Despite years of having been in the presence of Jodi’s family, they have not softened their position enough to think about the sufferring of Jodi’s family.
            The Alexanders want acknowledgement for their suffering, but they KNOW what it is like to lose a loved one, and they STILL wish to cause Jodi’s family to lose their loved one.
            I consider the Alexanders very blameworthy BY NOW, simply because it is monstrous, after so many years, to have not become aware of all the sufferring of Jodi’s family. The Alexanders family do not care that Jodi’s family might have their loved one executed.
            I find that very reproachable. I have refrained from speaking out against them, but this far along in the process of their grief, they should have relented in their vengeance, simply out of respect for Jodi’s family.
            Maybe early on, it was more understandable that they could not relent, but now as years have gone by, after having been in the familar presence of suffering human beings for so long, there is no excuse for the Alexanders to allow the Arias to lose their loved ones, despite what they might believe about Jodi’s innocence.
            The Alexanders could have, after all of these years, could have requested their supporters to stop the hate attacks against Jodi, simply out of respect for the sufferring of the entirely innocent Arias family.
            The difference now, when it comes to casting stones, is that the people who love Jodi can not but help, having deservedly hostile, antagonistic feelings toward the very people who relentlessly pursue theirquest to have Jodi murdered.
            And Jodi supporters believe she is innocent, and rightly so.

            • I guess I haven’t seen anything actually posted directly from either side, I have noticed a great deal of hate toward Jodi herself by the general public. Some people seem to believe they have a personal stake in punishing her, to the point where they are angry and will cuss and call you names for not agreeing. I have not seen that level of hate for anyone here which is why I posted here. Jodi and family appear to have peace in their hearts and souls, they have dignity and respect from a lot of people, most just don’t post. She can’t bring him back, but she can still be of serve to her community like all of us strive to be. She has grown from this, however awful it was every experience molds us for the better or worse. This will pass and she will not spend her life in jail
              The Alexanders can choose to be angry for life, and in doing so I don’t think they will ever be happy or grow or have anything to offer their community. In wishing her death they are just wishing the pain they feel on others, and then what. Taking death off the table is one of the nicest things the Judge could do for the Alexanders, then they stop thinking about it daily. I really do pray they can stop the hate.

    William Pitts ‏@william_pitts 15s16 seconds ago
    Smith says he can watch the source code as Autopsy operates so he knows it works correctly. Not so with EnCase. #JodiArias

    This computer stuff is so confusing so I hope I’m making sense b/c I don’t even get what this guy is saying lol Morning recess #jodiarias

    • Martinez attacks this witness because he really doesn’t know how to attack this type of evidence. But, his general tactic is to always discredit the witnesses first. It’s never about finding the truth with Martinez, only about winning.

  75. Open source allows them to costomize the software to do exactly what they want. Open source is used everywhere, by NASA, the NYSE, the US Military, it drives the Internet, because they can control it. Android, Chromeos and Linux are open source. I use Linux on my computer.

    • I think I recall Flores saying that he did not return the computer back to the evidence room • until the following day.•
      AND! I think Flores testified to this fact very recently___ only a few days ago or less.
      So, if my memory is correct, it is wonderful indeed, that Flores admitted this ON THE RECORD.
      I hope I am right.

    #jodiarias jurors look utterly bored over Nurmi’s endless questions for data scientist w/o degree #abc15

    • I never knew that a person’s life on line would be a boring thing… pffff…. let’s just hope that they have figured out how corrupt the prosecution is…

    • I think most of the public know that many computer experts not only do not have degrees, but excel beyond those who do have degrees. And know that what the schools teach can never keep up to the constantly changing science.
      And I think people know who Bill Gates is, and his background.
      And I think most intelligent people know degrees are not sure proof of intelligence and expertise___ and vice- versa___ especially in the computer science field.

    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.

  91. M @EmsterChic 3m3 minutes ago
    MDLR just came up and hugged #jodiarias mom in front of whole courtroom.

    (so what! They make some things seem so bad! Of course the DT is going to comfort their clients’ family! FFS, what some people do to make gossip…)

  92. Well my simple thinking is: she is pretty much done so really what does she have lose…either way?? She can either rule to remove the DP or she can be spineless and leave it to the appellate court…

  93. Okay my thoughts after this morning’s testimony:

    1) J. Smith verified that there was significant modification of the computer on June 19th when turned on and hard shut down
    2) Also learned there was other modification on June 19 at 11:00pm when ONLY THE STATE would have access to computer
    3) Porn sites were accessed manually, not by virus or by cleaners
    4) photos were accessed and 3 USB’s were plugged into computer –

    Maria Schaffer when she testified stated that JM was sitting at the computer scrolling through the photos and she was standing behind him and the fact that photos were accessed on that day confirms at least in part her testimony and DISCREDITS Det Flores “I can’t remember” line from the other day when he could not remember if JM was looking for women’s breasts, etc…
    She also testified that Det Flores was the one who plugged the computer in (correct me if I am wrong on this though I believe she did say that)
    5) the tech – J. Smith – did not do anything wrong and was certainly well qualified in what he was doing and JM did not discredit him in any way whatsoever
    6) All this of course on top of the tampering with the computer at the scene on June 4 by Det Flores and others
    7) the 2008 original image was NEVER disclosed to the defense until just recently (and even that image was not pristine bc they woke up the computer at the scene twice and hard shut down losing tons of volatile memory
    8) state testimony throughout the criminal trial was consistently NO PORN when in fact there was tons of it and it was like “an aircraft carrier in the room”

    ARIZONA. I WILL BE AT THE TEMPE IMPROV THIS WEEKEND. please buy tickets so I can tell my mom she was wrong.

    I adore Whitney… should we warn her about strawberry frappuccino’s, upside down license plates and gas cans? (did I miss anything?)

  95. The question JSS needs to ask herself is does she follow the law, maintain her integrity and reputation or does she succumb to the tactics and pressures to just pass the buck….

    JM, do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do ya?

      • I don’t believe the fact that a first time capital case judge being picked for this case was just the luck of the draw………just sayin’

      • The entire case is hogwash. It is always the onus on the prosecution to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In this case, it somehow was turned around to the defense having to prove their innocence beyond a reasonable doubt. JM has continously called Jodi and every single witness she had a liar. He had the backing of the Alexander family and supposed friends to blast all over the internet just how much of a liar Jodi was. Most of the family’s supporters still do not get it. They do not get that there was a fight to the finish on that day and either TA or Jodi was going to die.
        They are still trying to save his good name. It does not even dawn on these people that teen porn is pedophilia.
        If TA were up on charges for anything he would never get off based on what has been found on his computer. In fact, the prosecution would seek additional charges. People really need to realize this. He was no angel and Jodi held his secrets.
