PHOENIX — Jodi Arias begged jurors Tuesday to give her life in prison, saying she "lacked perspective" when she told a local reporter in an interview that she preferred execution to spending the rest of her days in jail.That T-shirt alone is reason to execute her. She was not a victim of domestic abuse. Jodi was just lying to excuse her murder. But even if Travis were a woman-beating pedophile, as Jodi now claims, then she is all the more culpable. She had already broken up with Travis, and he was about to take a trip to Cancun with another woman. Why would Jodi drive 1000 miles to make a sex tape with him, unless she liked a woman-beating pedophile or she wanted to murder him?
Standing confidently but at times her voice breaking, Arias told the same eight men and four women who found her guilty of first-degree murder that she planned to use her time in prison to bring about positive changes, including donating her hair to be made into wigs for cancer victims, helping establish prison recycling programs and designing T-shirts that would raise money for victims of domestic abuse.
She also said she could run book clubs and teach classes to prisoners to "stimulate conversations of a higher nature."
HLN TV was complaining about her flat affect. They theorized that she only had to make an emotional connection with one juror to avoid the death penalty. Her flat affect is the least of her sins. Some people show emotion more than others.
