Should Jodi Arias get the death penalty or life without parole?


Jodi Arias has been found guilty of first degree murder and guilty of cruelty in the aggravation phase of her trial for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander. The jurors who found her guilty of the first two phases of the trial could not agree on the final phase, which resulted in a hung jury and a mistrial for the final phase of the trial. Now the State & the victim's family have to decide whether to continue and impanel a new jury. A new jury would decide whether Arias receives the death penalty or life with or without parole. If they cannot decide, the death penalty is out.

    Thanks for sharing! I'd have to agree wholeheartedly. I feel bad for Travis' family and friends. Jodi will get satisfaction as she has all along if she continues to live. She'll have it easy living for free (on our money), relations with guards, etc

    It is pretty sad that tax dollars of hard working Americans are paying for her defense & will pay for every appeal she makes hereafter.

    I am curious. If you were on the jury & you found as the jurors did for phase 1 & 2 of the trial. Could you have sentenced a pretty young woman to death in phase 3? I think a woman could, but many men cannot not, because she is female &

    Good point. Just today on TV there was a man on death row for 18 years who was exonerated by medical evidence. Our forefathers believed it better 10 guilty go free than one innocent die.

    U.S. Supreme Justices questioned the effectiveness of the death penalty due to just what you said. Appeal after appeal after appeal & they can survive on death row for a decade & some.

    I hate to admit it, but I agree she should suffer for what she did to Travis. This woman thinks this whole thing is "The Jodi Show." She has shown no remorse and she insults Travis' family by claiming herself a victim of abusive at Travis' hand.

    I can appreciate your sentiment. It is easier for us to say she should be sentenced to death, but to be a juror sentencing her to death or the actual person who gives her the lethal injection is something else.
