Fact Based Reporting by Rob Roman
Research by Amanda Chen
Christine Beswick, a “Relationships Examiner” for Examiner.com out of Toronto, makes medical history ….. by talking out her ass.
Here we review Christine’s latest article “Jodi Arias will get a video call for Christmas, Juan Martinez fights back.” Judging from her past articles, Christine Beswick seems to have a visceral and seething hatred for the defendant. Really, she’s just another in a long line of D-list celebs who try to cash in, garner more site hits and attention for themselves by throwing rocks at Jodi Arias.
Beswick, in a Nutshell
Her so-called articles are generally devoid of fact, give few specific examples, and cite few if any other qualified sources. Beswick is just putting it out there knowing that 95 out of 100 people will tell her “Right-on”. As she goes riding by on her bicycle, triumphantly waiving to her adoring fans, we just had to try and shove a proverbial stick in her spokes, in the name of factual reporting and fairness, of course.
The quoted sections in turquoise are from Christine’s article, followed by our responses. Other sources are in purple.
“After seeing the evidence that Travis Alexander was stabbed over 25 times, shot in the head, and nearly decapitated from a severed windpipe, the 2013 jury also found that Jodi’s crime included the aggravating factor of cruelty in the murder of Travis Alexander. It was this aggravating factors stage that a jury unanimously found made Jodi Arias eligible for the death penalty.
Travis Alexander had 16 stab wounds. Try reading the autopsy report.
He had 29 knife wounds.
– 16 stab wounds – 13 incised wounds, including the slit throat. Many of these wounds were minor.
This does not seek to minimize the wounds, as some were obviously deep and two wounds were fatal all by themselves (the stab to the heart and the neck slash). The wounds were horrific, no doubt.
Everyone likes to say that Travis Alexander was “nearly decapitated” or that his throat was “slashed to the vertebrae”. Wrong!
This would be Nicole Brown Simpson, and we will not go over that again. Nearly decapitated? There is no evidence of that whatsoever. In fact, the official autopsy report states that the throat wound was 2-4 inches short of being ear to ear. His windpipe was severed, yes.
Saying Travis was “nearly decapitated” is like saying in July that it’s “nearly Christmas”.
It would have been much more cruel, had Alexander been stabbed once in the heart, then left to slowly bleed to death.
As for the cruelty charge, let’s see what USA Today has to say about that:
“In the Jodi Arias case, the jury that convicted her of murder also found that she killed Travis Alexander in an especially cruel manner. The current jury will decide only if there are mitigators that outweigh the cruelty.
The aggravator is called F(6) in the statutes, “especially heinous, cruel or depraved.” In Arias’ case, the trial judge would only allow for cruelty.
All murder could be deemed cruel, but “excessive cruelty” is supposed to refer to great physical suffering or great mental anguish before death.”
This is supposed to mean a prolonged death, a purposely prolonged death, torture, a significant period of mental anguish prior to death, or a significant period of uncertainty about whether or not the victim will be murdered, such as in a rape, a kidnapping, or a hostage situation.
“But prosecutors often rely on the common meaning of the word “cruel” to get juries to believe that the murder they are judging is among the cruelest.”
This is a problem of Arizona law. It’s a serious problem.
Jodi Arias ordered a “Code Red” on Travis Alexander. Therefore, Juan Martinez, a few connected polticians, and the LDS Church get to order a “Code Red” on Jodi Arias. Right?
Fair is fair.
Supporters and Defense Think Guilt Phase Still in Progress
“…This (2nd penalty) phase has been in progress since September 2014. Supporters of Jodi Arias, and the current defense strategy of Jodi Arias, suggests (sic) that some people think right now Jodi is fighting for her innocence. She is not. She is still guilty and convicted of first degree murder, and this jury has been ordered to remember that.”
I keep hearing this idiotic idea that Jodi supporters and the defense think it’s still the guilt phase. Nobody thinks that, and the jury knows full well what they are there to decide. It’s Life vs. Death.
We have already reported that there is almost zero difference in Arizona between LWOP (Life with no possibility of parole) and 25 years to life with a possibility of parole (Life with an infinitesimally slight, but virtually no chance of parole).
What’s really interesting is that we know for a fact that many Prosecution supporters believe that Life is the correct decision. We thought the battle lines would change from Guilty vs. Not Guilty, to Life vs. Death, with many prosecution supporters coming over and joining us on the side of Life. However, most prosecution supporters are still fighting the Guilty vs. Not Guilty battle.
We wonder how many of these people are hiding the fact that they secretly hope the verdict will be Death? We wonder how many really don’t care whether she gets Life or Death?
Drag the Victim Through the Mud … blat blat blat
“In this phase of the court process Jodi Arias is required to present mitigating factors that may lead a jury to have sympathy for her and decide on life in prison, rather than the death penalty. Instead, the Jodi Arias defense team has decided to drag the victim through the mud with one abuse story after another in their efforts to paint Jodi Arias as an abuse victim, according to Christian Today earlier this week.”
That is Not what the Christian Today article said. The article did not say “drag the victim through the mud with one abuse story after another” nor did it say “their efforts to paint Jodi Arias as an abuse victim”.
To the great credit of Christian Today, their report was much more objective than that. They stated the facts, and they let the reader decide – you know, the old-fashioned way.
The only true citing from Christian Today, other than a quote by Jen Wood of the Trial Diaries, was this:
“Christian Today reports that the trial wrapped before the holidays with testimony from a Dr. Geffner.”
Chritine Beswick, these are YOUR words:
Defense Attempts and Allegations
“As we previously reported Dr. Geffner was trying to paint the picture of Jodi Arias as an abuse victim, in an attempt to use alleged “abuse” as a mitigating factor. What this means is the defense is trying to say, Travis abused Jodi and so she should get off for this killing.”
They aren’t attempting – they already did it in the first penalty phase. They aren’t alleging anything either.
Is Christine Beswick citing an article from Christian Today because they are an authority on the Jodi Arias trial? Or, is she citing the article on Christian Today merely because it has the word “Christian” in it?
‘We report, – You decide.’
Beswick citing Christian Today
That in-depth Christian Today article she cited was a whopping 333 words. Another Christian Today article about the Jodi Arias trial (354 words) was headlined under “entertainment”. This is what it said:
“Last week, the lawyers working on the case started questioning 400 possible jurors in Phoenix’s Maricopa County Superior Court. After the first cut, the number was trimmed down to 176. Wednesday’s trial resulted to further trimmings, which ended up with 26 people returning for further questioning.
The residents from the area, on the other hand, are not happy with how slow things are shaping up for the trial. A former Mesa police investigator expressed his strong opinion in an interview posted at the Arizona Central.
He said, “YES! I’m sick and tired of the Jodi Arias murder case. Murders happen almost every day in Arizona. Sadly, murder is no big deal. While most murder cases and trials are handled quietly and with the dignity of brain surgery, the Arias trial has taken on the theatrics of a well-rehearsed circus show, thanks to Maricopa County prosecutor Juan Martinez, defendant Arias and the media.”
That’s what Christian Today reported. They also reported this:
“The prolonged trial to sentence Jodi Arias is also putting a hole in the pockets of Arizona taxpayers. At this point, the defense costs already reached $2.5 million. This is not the final numbers, however, since the tab will continue to grow while the second phase for penalty hearing is still ongoing.
The amount paid for the prosecutors were undisclosed.”
Looking again at a Beswickism:
“As we previously reported Dr. Geffner was trying to paint the picture of Jodi Arias as an abuse victim, in an attempt to use alleged “abuse” as a mitigating factor. What this means is the defense is trying to say, Travis abused Jodi and so she should get off for this killing.”
How is getting a sentence of Life in prison with no possibility of parole “getting off”? It’s a perfectly appropriate punishment for 1st degree murder. In fact, with no prior police record, LWOP is quite a harsh punishment.
“Due to an overwhelming lack of evidence, most court watchers aren’t buying it. They are saying, “We’re still waiting to see a mitigating factor. And evidence, please.”
The last two days of the Jodi Arias trial before the holiday season included Jodi using Dr. Geffner to tell about how often she perceived herself to be a victim in her life.”
In the last Penalty Phase trial, there were 8 mitigating factors presented by the defense
1. Ms. Arias has no prior criminal history.
2. Ms. Arias was just 27 years old when she committed her offense.
3. Ms. Arias is remorseful for her conduct,
4. Ms- Arias suffered both physical and emotional abuse as a child.
5. Ms. Arias suffered both physical and emotional abuse during her relationship with Mr. Alexander.
6. The abusive nature of the relationship caused Ms. Arias to suffer extreme emotional stress at the time of the incident.
7. Ms. Arias has been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
8. Ms. Arias has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.
9. Ms. Arias’ psychological makeup impaired her ability to cope with the tumultuous relationship she had with Mr. Alexander.
The evidence and testimony currently being presented is covering number 4, number 5, number 6, number 7, number 8, and number 9. It’s actually quite efficient in covering a large part of six listed mitigators. Numbers 1, 2, and 3 will be covered later.
Here is one prosecution supporter’s very humorous response to the mitigators, thought it’s full of a heapin’ helpin’ of lies. And a prosecution supporter just asked the other day “Why do they call (some of) us “Haters”? Maybe this is why:
Time Out for Comedy
I guess this commenter on Facebook is called “Ugly Stick” because he/she feels Jodi Arias got hit too many times with the ugly stick by the Creator of the Universe:
OK LETS START WITH MITIGATING FACTORS SHALL WE?
PARASITE AGE: ( if parasite is old enough to brutally, savagely murder a really good guy in cold blood in a fit of jealous creepy girl stalker rage, by stabbing him 29 times, 9 to back and head, shot to head then after OVER KILL, has the ABILITY to cut an innocent mans head off, then she is old enough to DIE by the good Doc Dr Needle Juice ).
NO CRIMINAL HISTORY: ( with exception of slashing tires, stalking, threatening TA ex-girlfriends, hacking private information in secrecy, attempted black mail, forging documents and fake letters, breaking and entering without authorization multiple times by means of a DOGGY DOOR, etc… )
PARASITE WAS A GOOD FRIEND: ( such a good friend she will stab you in the back, too much of a coward to face you, cant look you in the eye as she pounds a REAL friggen knife in you back ).
LACKED SUPPORT FROM FAMILY: ( her family financially supported her by giving her money to make her go away and shut TFU, parasite refused any other reality, but her own creepy alternate world… parents first instinct told them she did it, what does that tell you ).
SUFFERED NEGLECT AND ABUSE: ( a wooden spoon is not a knife or a gun, and having to live by rules that can not be followed is not abuse it is a selfish immature child who has to go to bed at 8 and not allowed to color on walls ).
TRIED TO MAKE THE BEST OF HER LIFE: ( dropping out of high school to be a menace to society, mooching and hopping from host to host, ( man to man ) *PARASITE* No real ambition or desire to be more than a “GOLD DIGGER* or *TROPHY WIFE* ).
TRIED TO IMPROVE SELF: ( One does not improve themselves with breast implants and hair color and becoming whatever religion her target host is ).
PARASITE IS A TALENTED ARTIST: ( images traced from various magazine does not make art, it makes you look stupid and a fraud…another criminal act. )
see comments section.
This is what USA Today had to say about a comparison between the Arias crime, and other murders in Maricopa County:
“On the same day Arias was convicted, Crisantos Moroyoqui-Yocupicio pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, and a Maricopa County Superior Court judge sentenced him to 14 years in prison. In 2010, Moroyoqui-Yocupicio, a reputed member of a Mexican drug cartel, murdered an associate who had stolen from him, and then cut his head off.”
Cut his head OFF, – for real.
“A month later, Douglas Ray George beat and stabbed his girlfriend to death and left her naked body in the street in Tempe. He also was allowed to plead guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 16 years in prison. Prosecutors said it was uncertain whether the crime was premeditated.”
“A passer-by found the body of Annovedwin Begay-Barakzai, 23, on June 15 An autopsy determined she died from blunt force trauma, and authorities said she had broken ribs, a lacerated liver and numerous stab wounds to her face and chest.”
When he switched from a blunt object to a knife, that wasn’t premeditation?
See what we mean by biblical law double standard? A man in Arizona can do whatever he wants to a woman, but a woman dare not try to assault or kill a man for any reason.
“There was no plea offer for Arias; she went to trial and was convicted of first-degree murder.
The death penalty is supposed to be reserved as punishment for the worst of the worst murders, and the Arias murder was certainly horrible. But so were the murders committed by Moroyoqui-Yocupicio and George.
Who decides which murders are the worst of the worst?
“But it is almost impossible to draw a bright line between murders that should be punished by death and those that should not. So the U.S. Supreme Court, in 1976, approved a “narrowing” system using statutory “aggravating factors” to distinguish the extraordinary murders from those that are merely ordinary.
Those factors include killing children or police officers, committing multiple murders or killing for pecuniary, that is, monetary, gain. But since the 1976 ruling, the number of aggravators (in Arizona) has risen from 6 to 14, leaving defense attorneys to complain that every murder qualifies for death.
Prosecutors decide which to pursue”.
“The only narrowing function is prosecutorial discretion,” defense attorney Eric Crocker said. “You’re at the whim of the prosecutor’s office to determine which cases are capital and which are not.”
The truth is that somebody made a phone call and made sure that this was to be a death penalty case and that Juan Martinez would be the lead prosecutor.
They made sure that Jodi Arias would be given a “Code Red” Maricopa, Arizona style.
Abuse Survivors vs. Jodi Arias
“Using primarily information from Jodi’s own diary, Geffner testified repeatedly that Jodi perceived herself to be a victim against the alleged big, bad murder victim who is unable to speak for himself. Jodi Arias needs to be careful with this strategy because she has already ticked off many abuse survivors in this particular crowd of high profile trial watchers. Most abuse survivors have a funny “radar” for each other, and can spot a fake a mile away.”
This is not about abuse survival. According to her defense, Jodi Arias is a survivor of a sudden, violent conflict. This conflict was brought on by a cyclical abusive relationship. This is not a battered woman’s defense. Arias has never claimed to be a battered woman, or to have battered woman’s syndrome. Alyce LaViolette claimed that, but she meant it in that this relationship fit that pattern – type, not that Arias has any battered woman’s syndrome.
She did claim that a relationship characterized by dominance, emotional, and verbal abuse, began to turn into physical abuse by the time Jodi moved 1,000 miles away and back to Yreka, California. She claims that that violence began again in Alexander’s home in Mesa on June 4th , 2008, beginning to escalate in the afternoon and culminating with a deadly attack in the bathroom.
Out of the 8 mitigating circumstances presented by the defense in the first penalty phase, the most important mitigator, according to the 4 jury members who voted for life in the first penalty phase, was the feeling that Jodi Arias had been abused both before she met Travis Alexander and during her relationship with him.
Look at what Darryl Brewer had to say about her and what Travis Alexander had to say about her. He said she was always honest and cheerul. Do the math. It had to be either abuse or mental illness or a combination of the two.
Both are mitigators from the Death Penalty.
The entries in Jodi Arias’ diary do in fact provide evidence of abuse. This evidence was not refuted when Alyce LaViolette testified, although she was attacked personally. This is evidence as testified to by Dr. Fonseca and Dr. Geffner. They are corroborated by e-mails, messages, and texts between Travis Alexander and friends, and the testimony of friends of Travis.
This evidence cannot easily be refuted. She was abused, no doubt.
Within months of meeting her, Alexander was calling Arias a “skank” and “a pathological liar”. Yet more than a year and a half later, he is still suggesting sexual scenarios for the future and having both phone sex and in-person sex with her while still denigrating her to his friends.
No Accountability, No Remorse, Manipulator
“Again, Jodi needs to be very careful about this approach because nobody sides with the defendant who never takes accountability, never shows remorse, always manipulates, and has a long history of not telling the truth. Not only that, but juries are instructed to make decisions based on evidence.”
Evidence is being presented by the defense. It’s real and it’s evidence. Jodi Arias has taken accountability for her actions during this trial. Jodi Arias does NOT have a long history of not telling the truth. It was only after the killing that she has a such a history. No evidence to the contrary has been presented.
When Bill Arias said in the police interrogation that Jodi had not been honest with her parents since age 14 or so, what he meant was that she no longer confided in them. She was evasive as to the details of her life after moving out of the home, but this does not mean she lied to them. The fact is she didn’t tell them anything unless absolutely necessary.
Biased Expert Testimony
“Expert witness testimony does count as evidence… Most juries understand that expert witnesses are biased, for the defense and for the prosecution as well.”
I agree, but when the experts present objective evidence that can’t easily be disputed, on either side, the jury is likely to accept it.
Jury’s Perception is What Matters
“What matters at this point for Jodi Arias isn’t even what is or isn’t the truth. It’s what the jury believes. How is the jury perceiving all of this drama? If even one of them is perceiving it the same way the general public appears to be, Jodi is in trouble.”
Agree, however Juan needs 12 out of 12 jurors to get his death sentence.
Jodi is a Narcissist per DSM V
“Jodi’s been accused of being a narcissist several times. And the funny thing about narcissists is that people always see through them very quickly, but the DSM 5 tells us that they are so oblivious to that because they lack insight beyond their inflated sense of Self. Jodi thinks she’s fooling people. Her supporters are fooled. Supporters for the prosecution call that ‘drinking the Kool Aid'”.
Jodi had never been diagnosed as a Narcissist, which means that she is not a narcissist, doesn’t it?. Please give specific examples of where Jodi Arias is easy to see through. I would agree that Jodi Arias is sometimes oblivious to seeing how she is viewed by others, and she does lack insight. For example, after she gives the “Ninjas” explanation for the murder, even though Detective Flores told her that her story is impossible and unbelievable, she stuck with it and even enhanced it.
Congratulations to “Cate”
I will say that “Cate” has given many very specific incidences of Arias’ testimony and journal entries she feels should not be believed. Her arguments are persuasive, and I give her a lot of credit for her arguments. Cate knows that she must provide specific examples to make a convincing argument, how is it that Beswick, a “life and relationships advice” reporter, does not feel the need to provide an example?
Jodi has Fooled her Supporters
Jodi’s supporters are not fooled by her. They are in a better position to judge her than non-supporters because they have been communicating with her and they generally know more about her and her positive qualities, which are just flat out ignored by prosecution supporters.
“And her lack of evidence is going to strongly work against her and lead her jury into waffling territory. This is dangerous because waffling territory which plants the seeds of reasonable doubt.”
“Reasonable doubt only applies to a burden of proof “beyond a reasonable doubt”. In the penalty phase, the defense only has to prove that the mitigating factors are more true than untrue. Only 51% proof is needed, and this is called a burden of proof “by the preponderance of the evidence”. There is no place for reasonable doubt here. A mitigating factor is either more true than not true, or it’s not.
“You will notice every lie or as Jodi likes to call them, abuse story, is more dramatic than the last. As the DSM 5 shows, that’s an elevation technique narcissists use, especially when they meet with resistance. It is the classic, “Oh ok, you didn’t buy that story? You will have to believe this one, because it’s even more terrible.” The narcissistic defense.”
Do you have any specific examples? You are a reporter, aren’t you? Or are you just telling people what you want them to believe, without providing anything to back it up?
There is NOTHING in the DSM V relating to an “elevation technique” due to “resistance” or anything else.
Zero Boundary Defense
“It’s the, “let’s toss out as many of these dramatic stories as we can and see how much we can make stick” defense. She has zero boundaries and will literally stop at nothing to avoid the death penalty. And, since she is too afraid to testify, she gets her expert witnesses to do the job for her. From Travis was a pedophile, to “oh great now I’m getting death threats” nothing is off the table in Jodi’s quest to delay the inevitable.”
If Jodi is getting death threats, as she had alleged, this will be easy to prove or disprove, as the jail has a copy on file of every postcard sent to her and a recording on file of every phone call she has made. Dr, Fonseca believes that Travis did have a sexual interest in underage children. Why would she dare say this if she didn’t really believe it given the evidence she researched?
For the millionth time, it seems, Jodi does not want to “delay the inevitable”. She cannot start her appeals process until after she’s sentenced. I’m very sure she’s eager to get to Perryville prison, where there are better food and conditions (according to the prisoners themselves), so she can begin her series of appeals.
How many boundaries would you have in trying to save your life?
Citing Jeff Gold About the Defense
“It was two very long days of testimony that left many still wondering where the mitigating factors were. As lawyer and expert legal analyst, Jeff Gold from the Gold Patrol tweeted,”
“#JodiArias diary ugh! These are the days of our lives. The court has allowed the defense to go way too far afield of mitigation. #justsayin.”
We have already demonstrated that Jeff Gold is an idiot, a sentiment not only of many Jodi supporters. He is desperate to connect with people under age 60, but he has no idea what these “youngsters” are interested in. He tried to do tweets about such things as a 1970’s soap opera and Britney Spears, not realizing that no has been interested in such things for decades. Just sayin’. LoL.
The reason why he is wrong is because the prosecution disputed that there was any evidence at all of abuse written in Jodi Arias’ journals. The prosecution used Arias’ journals to try and show there was no abuse. The prosecution tried to deny the evidence given by Alyce LaViolette by attacking her character and her qualifications, rather than attacking the evidence she presented.
Therefore the defense should be given lots of latitude by the court to show how the journal entries back up Ms. Arias’ claims of abuse.
Citing Jenn Wood
“The defense was hoping this would establish a pattern of abuse, but what it appeared to establish was the pattern of an obsessed girlfriend. As Jenn Wood from the Trial Diaries reported,”
“Day in out #jodiarias eats, sleeps, breathes Travis. Journaling, calling, emailing, and texting.”
I would agree with Jenn in that Jodi Arias was way too infatuated and obsessed with Travis Alexander.
Jodi Admitted to Slashing the Tires?
“In addition to stories told to make Travis look manipulative, the jury also heard that Jodi Arias did admit in her own journal that she slashed the tires of Travis Alexander at one point in 2007.
We also heard that Jodi owned a stun gun at one point, which may once again work to negate that she was in an abusive relationship.”
Wrong! Maybe Travis looks manipulative, because he was manipulative? Jodi Arias never admitted that she slashed Travis Alexnder’s tires. How, pray tell, would owning a stun gun negate an abusive relationship?
Citing Jeff Gold, Again
“As Jeff Gold tweeted,”
“#JodiArias court allows defense so far into the weeds you lose site of any view. It’s a DP mitigation case. This minutia can be abbreviated.”
I agree with Jeff here, this may be to Arias’ detriment as her too long testimony in the guilt phase worked against her.
“It came up that Jodi hadn’t bothered to mention to her diary the fact that Travis had slapped her allegedly. Geffner says this is “understandable.” Christian Today reports that one message that was read in court that was written by Jodi Arias to Travis Alexander read,”
“I’m very sorry for all the pain we’ve caused each other. Most of it is my fault. I never meant to hurt you.”
Isn’t this an exact demonstration of Arias taking responsibility for her actions that you stated earlier were non-existent?
Journals Were Doctored by Arias
“Many reports are showing suspicion around these journals and many are speculating that some of the journals shown in court were written by Jodi Arias after the crime. Jenn Wood from Trial Diaries told KPHO what she thought the defense was doing with these tactics.”
Journal entries were written in after the killing? Prove it! How in the world would she know that her journal entries would become evidence? If she really did this she could have put a lot more damning stuff into the entries.
“They are trying to get compassion for Jodi….What they are trying to do is translate this to the jury, that Jodi is a victim of Travis Alexander….”
Exactly. And isn’t that what actually happened?
Dr. Geffner Is just Dr. Fonseca 2.0
“By the end of Days 19 and 20 of the retrial of the penalty phase of the Jodi Arias trial it was clear that Dr. Geffner testimony was simply a “2.0” version of previous expert witness for the defense Dr. Fonseca. Like Dr. Fonseca he worked very hard to paint the picture of Jodi Arias as an abuse victim, and the word “manipulated” came up a lot in his testimony.”
Maybe that was the defenses intention. You can discredit a witness and attack them personally, but it’s much harder to attack two witnesses saying the same thing. Now you must attack the evidence they provided and that’s not easily done. It’s an excellent strategy if it was in fact their strategy.
Abuse Victims Don’t Kill Due To Manipulation
“What Dr. Geffner, domestic violence expert, does not want to say about Jodi Arias is that, abuse survivors don’t act like that. Even abuse victims don’t kill because they feel manipulated. They only kill when they are in true survival mode.
Jodi is trying to say she was in survival mode the entire time she was in a relationship with Travis Alexander, and there simply is no evidence to date to support that notion. This is a mentality she is trying to convey that is seriously ticking off abuse survivors. This is how the last week ended before breaking for the holidays. “
Right! Either she was in survival mode and fought for her life or she just snapped even if it was days before the killing. There are no other reasonable explanations that I can see. No one has claimed that Jodi Arias was in survival mode the entire time she was in (the) relationship. Just you’re claiming that, Beswick.
Jodi Will Go To Perryville Prison
“Regardless of what verdict is reached, when the verdict is delivered Jodi Arias will be transferred to Perryville Prison to carry out her sentence. “
Right! Who is not in agreement with that?
Kindness and Benevolence of Sheriff Joe
“We do not know if Sherriff Joe Arpaio will be hosting another talent competition this holiday season, but we do know he is allowing free video visitation as a special treat to inmates over Christmas.
KTAR reported on Dec. 23 that inmates in Maricopa County, including Jodi Arias, will be able to have a free video visit with family members over the holiday season. Generally the video visitation costs $13, but Sherriff Arpaio is providing it free to all inmates this holiday. KTAR reports that Sherriff Joe said,
“It’s very very good to be able to let the loved ones – whether it’s in Mexico or anywhere else that cannot come to the jail – to be at least able to utilize this video equipment.”
Video visitation will last 20 minutes each and must be registered for online. What do you think the chances are that a group of Jodi supporters will try and get in on this one? Will the next step for Jodi Arias be a leaked jailhouse video?”
This is all a very nice tribute to that cuddly teddy Bear or Santa of a benevolent jail keeper, Sheriff Joe. But this is the most distasteful thing in the Christine Beswick’s Examiner.com “article”. Can anyone refute that Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is a Monster? I don’t think you can.
We urge you to take a look at some real, factual reporting:
The Video visitation scheme, actually replaces face to face visitation in Sheriff Joe’s jails, meaning that even if you can travel to the jail, you cannot have a face to face visit with a prisoner any longer, only a video visit. Keep in mind that most of the inmates have merely been charged with a crime and have not yet had their day in court.
If you are familiar with Skype and other video conferencing software, you know that this software is virtually free and only requires a computers or smartphone to enable a video chat.
The system in the Maricopa jails works well for jailers because they can record and store each and every video-chat. Prisoners are charged almost $13.00 (65 cents/minute) for a twenty minute “video visit”.
Now, for Christmas, Sheriff Joe is “allowing the privilege of a free video visit for each qualifying prisoner in his jails”. How benevolent of him! Actually it’s entirely self-serving.
Many families who have not yet done a video visit can try one for free. Then they will be much more used to the technology and all set up for future PAID video visits. Though it’s nice that people can visit from a great distance, this scheme is a giant cash cow. The Sheriff gets 20% of all monies generated from video visits as pure profit. They also save money from all the manpower and logistics required to have actual face to face visitation. You do the math.
Juan’s Wondrous Motion
“Trial Diaries has reported that a motion was filed dated Dec. 22 with the Maricopa County Superior Court on the case of the State of Arizona vs. Jodi Arias.
In that motion, prosecutor for the State Juan Martinez objects to, well, just about everything the defense has done as of late. Specifically Martinez is objecting to the recent motion filed by the defendant seeking to dismiss the death penalty. So, at the start of this case, Juan filed a motion to seek the death penalty.”
The motion to dismiss the charges or to dismiss the death penalty demands a response by the prosecution. Of course, he filed a motion in response to the defense motion. Ch – Ch – Ch Chia!
“Juan’s motion is a strenuous objection to that. He basically said in his motion, they are claiming misconduct but have failed to show evidence, as usual, thus, no misconduct. In closing he makes sure that the last thing he says about Jodi Arias before the holiday break is, she’s a liar.”
Juan’s response is always “She’s a liar”. However, you do not get sentenced to death for being a liar. Lying is not a capital offense. You need something more substantial than that. Strenuous objection? Remember how far that got Demi Moore’s character in “A Few Good men”?
“The State objects to defendant’s latest request to ‘dismiss all charges with prejudice’ or dismiss the State’s notice of intent to seek death penalty due to recently discovered prosecutorial misconduct. Defendant continues to make unsupported allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and her current request should also be denied.”
The many instances of prosecutorial misconduct are really adding up. Juan Martinez’past misconduct may be finally catching up with him. Chickens finally coming home to roost? Ch – Ch – Ch – Chia!
Jodi Supporters Drink the Kool Aid
“Meanwhile, a cursory glance around the Internet would reveal that Jodi supporters, whether they are or are not drinking “the Kool Aid” truly believe she was abused. Some also are living in a universe that has led them to believe she will need a job when she gets out of prison. Those that are not drinking “the Kool Aid” know that Jodi is a convicted murderer whose best case scenario in this lifetime is life in prison.”
Thank-You, Christine, for noting that NOT ALL Jodi supporters are drinking the Kool Aid.
Arias Best Case Scenario
Okay, this is the faction of Jodi supporters I like to call the “Rainbows, Flowers and Unicorns” division of Jodi supporters. They believe she will be set free any day now. Not gonna happen.
Judge Stephens will never dismiss the charges, she would be tarred, feathered and run out of the state if she did that. The Supreme Court of Arizona will not dismiss the charges, they will bump it up to a higher court and let them take the heat. Jodi Arias will not go free.
Jodi Arias will go to Perryville Prison.
Realistically, the best case scenario for Jodi Arias and supporters is that she be awarded a retrial. This possibility is more likely than many prosecution supporters dare to believe.
Arias Supporters Are Delusional
“And this group of people calls those that support Travis Alexander “delusional.” Another post about the future of Jodi Arias shows that some people still believe she is getting out of jail sometime, and soon.”
Aren’t many Travis Alexander supporters delusional? What is it they are fighting for? Justice has already been served in this case. Jodi Arias has been unanimously convicted of Murder in the first degree. She will either get life or death, and she will go to Perryville Prison. So what fight is left for them to have? For those who demand death, good luck to you, it’s highly doubtful she will be sentenced to death.
Gossip Is Not Gospel
On top of that, there is a cornucopia of evidence to suggest that facts in this case are not as advertised by Juan Martinez, Media, Minions, or a life and relationship reporter from Toronto.
Even if Christine Beswick did make medical history!
The CODE RED
Did Juan Martinez order a “CODE RED” on Jodi Arias?
You’re God Damn Right He Did!
