Jodi Arias Verdict - GUILTY

Travis Alexander & Jodi Arias
Jodi Arias has been found guilty of murdering Travis Alexander in the first degree. 

The Jodi Arias trial has taken the public by storm on a level with the Casey Anthony, OJ Simpson and Michael Jackson trials and it is finally over. Part of that is thanks to HLN for giving daily coverage, and of course Nancy Grace devoting most of her show to the long trail. Another is just how wild and strange the trial has been, seemingly going through every aspect of Jodi Arias' life. The passionate Nancy Grace famously stated that she didn't care about Arias "giving blow jobs behind a 7-eleven" when the defense was bringing up her past relationships during the trial.

Thankfully, the obviously guilty Arias didn't get off like OJ Simpson and Casey Anthony. She admitted to killing him (after numerous lies), but the defense tried to play it as "self defense", which is a slap in the face to people who actually have been victims of abuse, unlike the lying sociopath Arias.

Arias barely shed any tears when the verdict was announced, which is odd for someone up for the death penalty. Its as if she didn't even care, as if she's in her own little universe. She reportedly argued with her lawyers following the verdict, presumably about the interview she wanted to give to a reporter, which she later did before heading off to jail. She claimed she would rather receive death than life in prison, stating "death is the ultimate freedom." You wonder if she is just saying that to try and influence the jury not to give her the death penalty, pretending to want it so they'll give her the opposite.
