We know very little about Jodi Arias in her teen years except that she often ran away and her mother, Sandy, found her hard to manage so she was sent to live with her grandparents. Judging from the knowledge we have garnered of Jodi, it is easy to believe that she learned early in life to use her body to achieve what she had her sights set on.
I hear Jodi described as being so pretty and I have to chuckle. Jodi is a far cry from what I consider a natural beauty. If cosmetics and hair dye creates beauty, then Jodi does do pretty well with the brush strokes. Sitting in the courtroom without all her gobs of makeup, she is rather dowdy looking. Her eyes are not bright and sparkly ( psst-Casey’s were and her boobs lacked silicon). The eyes are the windows of the soul and when I look at Jodi’s eyes, I see a deep void. If looks could kill, when Lisa was on the witness stand, she would have met her Maker from the evil glares cast upon her by Jodi. It seems that Arias tries to telecommunicate evil. Is this some form of witchcraft she practices?
The first romantic affair that Arias had, that we know of, was Darryl Brewer. This should have been an easy conquest for Jodi. This dude was twenty years older and her boss…hmmm…a promiscuous young thang that believed in ‘no holds barred’ when it came to romping in the hay…how could Darryl resist? We never did find out why Brewer got a divorce…hmmm..I wonder what came first, the Jodi chick or the divorce? Jodi and Darry’s relationship lasted approximately four years. Regardless, it didn’t take Jodi very long to get over Darryl once she spotted Travis. From Darry’s testimony on the stand, the old fool is still infatuated with the murderess. He is lucky to not have ended up sliced and practically beheaded. We should thank old Brewer, he did become a good witness for the prosecution…that dang anal sex and the dreaded gas cans.
Now before anyone jumps down my throat, I will stress that Travis Alexander did not deserve to be murdered nor did he do anything to deserve what happened to him. I want Jodi Arias found guilty and receive the death penalty. Leaving this aside for a bit, let’s be realistic, shall we?
I realize that Travis did not have a very good childhood due to both of his parents being Meth heads or whatever you call them. Travis went to live with his grandparents where he studied the Book of Mormon and became devout in that religion. I am not trying to pull a Bill Clinton here but what exactly is the meaning of the word ‘devout’?
If someone goes to church and professes to be a good Christian and then goes out and keeps breaking the commandments over and over and over, I tend to see them as hypocrits. Okay, we are all sinners and will slip up once in awhile and the Higher Power, we are taught, is forgiving. We then endeavor to mend our ways and strive to do better in the eyes of the One above.
In the case of Travis, he developed an ego as big as all outdoors. Did he think he was infallible when it came to conforming to his Mormon religion? He was a young virile man and I cannot condemn him for having sex outside of marriage once or even twice. Travis took it to extremes and was using Jodi for his sexual gratification even after they had broken up. He was as obsessed with what Jodi had to offer as she was in giving it to him thinking she would one day be his wife. I can see where Travis was even taunting Jodi.
Travis was successful in his Prepaid Legal and being a Promotional speaker but when it came to his personal relationships, he did not have a clue. Could he not rationalize that he was dealing with a stalker? All the evidence was right there, slashed tires, breaking into his personal bank, email and facebook accounts etc etc.
Travis had the opportunity to take things in hand and yes, I am referring to masturbation. After all the things he was accusing Jodi of, she was good enough to have sex with on the last day of his life?? What is wrong with this picture?
As I write this , there is method in my madness…I want to prepare you … there is no such thing as a ‘slam dunk’ guilty verdict. Are some of the jurors thinking along these same lines? Your comments are most welcomed!
