MEDIA and YOU

Do you think the media (news), reality TV can have a great impact on places people and things we think to be one way in our mind? When you hear or see something that you don’t agree with do you have a change of opinion about a person, place, or thing immediately or do you think everything through that you have seen and heard and what sources do you consider to be accurate? This has a lot to do with our perception of things and sometimes people can have their mind already made up without knowing all the facts. This brings me to a great point, one very recent trial that has sparked much outrage among all different types of people ranging from age, gender, ethnicity, and beliefs. Many of you might follow current trials as I do. We will take a look at a few that will always leave us in shock and awe of how someone could commit such a heinous crime. I will discuss The Jodi Arias trial,   Casey Anthony, The Mendez brothers, as well as the OJ Simpson case. I will also discuss other trials from the past as well as present and future upcoming trials.

JODI ARIAS

The Jodi Arias trail started back in January of 2013. Jodi Arias brutally murdered Travis Alexander in his home in Mesa, Arizona back on June 4, 2008. Jodi had 2 defense lawyers to represent her for her first trial with a number of reasons her lawyers claimed were the real reason Jodi killed Travis. The big one was the so-called Self-Defense claim, along with blaming her parents, and previous bad relationships as well as having some mental issues. If you followed the trial when Jodi was on the stand she never once not once ever said she was sorry for murdering Travis.

What many people are not aware of is if Jodi does get life the judge can always give her life with the possibility of parole. After several years served and depending on the laws in Arizona at the time Jodi is in the prison system, and how they work she might get time served counted towards her sentence if she does get life with parole. What that means is the jail time that she has served up until the penalty phase is decided might count towards a life sentence if the jury decides to go with life and not death. So if she has served  5 years and she gets a life sentence of 25 years to life, 5 years might be counted towards time served of the 25 year sentence which would mean when she went to prison she would only have 20 years left to serve, if Arizona allows this. There is so much more to cover on this trial and we will discuss this in more detail. I have inserted a link that will be helpful to provide a little more insight into the decision made by the first jury that resulted in the mistrial for the penalty phase.  http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/23/justice/arizona-jodi-arias-trial

Jodi Arias and her defense team were back in court today July 16, 2013. The retrial start date has now been pushed out even further as the defense attorney Kirk Nurmi does not have all the necessary documents ready to proceed with the rest of the case for the new jury. http://abcnews.go.com/US/jodi-arias-returns-court-effort-avoid-death-penalty/story?id=19678736#.UeW27Y2ceuI

Of course the defense is going to come up with anything to try to save Jodi’s life. I really hope the new jury takes a long hard look at the pictures again of what Jodi did to Travis. There is no excuse to do that to another human being even if Travis did call her names. She is not an innocent little angel. If you did not watch the first trial I suggest watching it and getting caught up on what took place and what evidence was presented and who testified. 

I have to say when Jodi recorded Travis without him knowing she very well could have provoked certain topics in regards to sex and fantasy talk to where he did say sexual things, but she recorded him without him knowing. Many people have sexual fantasy talks; however this does not make them sick. This brings up another issue when Jodi taped Travis and he said she sounded like a 12-year-old girl having her first orgasm, well I listened to that tape in the first trial and her voice did not sound like a grown female, so this might be why Travis said what he did. That does not mean he was into children as Jodi claimed as well. Yet she also said she watched Travis on his computer looking at naked pictures of little boys and that he wanted to see her in spider-man underwear, yet the only time the underwear were seen was when Jodi took the picture herself, so this could have very much been another manipulation tactic from her. In regards to the so-called naked little boy pics on the computer of Travis, the police took his computer and not one single piece of evidence ever suggested he looked at such pictures. Just another one of Jodi’s lies.

I will be touching more on this trial and others as I continue in my journey with you into the unknown. We can’t always make sense of why people do what they do, but we can explore into the reality of what has happened and what may or may not have caused the problem resulting in a crime.

    Thank you for commenting on this topic of my blog. I will be adding more with this section in time so hopefully that will provide you with a better understanding on the trials I will cover and other topics in my blog. My blog is new so this will be an ongoing project for me. I will be posting a YouTube video coming up either this weekend or next weekend and I will provide a link for that when I do.

    You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something which I feel I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward on your subsequent submit, I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!
