How appropriate that the latest news out of Arizona is the scariest of all, just in time for Halloween.
Judge Sherry Stephens, the judge who has hosted the second biggest judicial joke of the 21st century, is treading on everyone’s rights in order to keep the citizens of Arizona out of her already, out-of-control courtroom. No surprising news since she has assisted Jodi Arias throughout this trial in tormenting, torturing and re-victimizing each member of the Alexander family at every opportunity.
As a result of their lack of experience, Kirk Nurmi and Jennifer Willmott have made hay with Judge Sherry’s willingness to allow virtually everything their sadistic client desires, no matter how demented. Helping Jodi Arias fulfill her sick need to torture the remaining victims, Travis Alexander’s family any way she can, Judge Sherry Stephens has provided Arias with endless opportunities to do just that. The defense, having no legal skills or prowess, have used everything from sex tapes to close ups of Jodi Arias’s considerable well-worn vagina and anus, all in order to distract from the horrific, premeditated crime that this sociopath has committed and further victimize the real victim Travis Alexander. Judge Sherry Stevens has allowed Arias and her family to giggle in open court as the real victims in this case, the Alexander family, are forced to endure graphic autopsy photos and heartbreaking testimony.
Although Nurmi and Willmott have offered comic relief throughout the trial with their constant objections and requests for mistrials, their shameless mimicking of Juan Martinez is flat out embarrassing and emphasizes the already obvious fact, that they are both inexperienced and their “strategy” all along has been to upset the system and the proceedings as much as possible. Their repeated use of effective phrases, phrases used effectively by Juan Martinez throughout the trial, are transparent and childish. There is nothing funny any longer however, about their lack of skill and willingness to upset the system. It is clear now that we have a judge who has given them the key to her courtroom and will continue to do so.
I could say both Nurmi and Willmott have all the legal prowess of a 10 cent crack whore (apologies to crack whores everywhere,) because isn’t that what Nurmi and Willmott have been doing all along? Milking the system, with their limited supply of legal knowledge, experience and resources, for as long as they can, for as much of that tax payer money they can squeeze out of this fiasco?
All the makings for more wasting of tax payers money is there and none of it would work without Judge Sherry Stephens’ willingness to turn her courtroom into anything the defense team asks for, including a porn theatre, all to the delight of the sadistic defendant.
The guilt phase is over. The killer has been found guilty already of a heinous first degree murder. So why are we enduring another expensive freak show? Isn’t it the judge’s responsibility to let the jury know that the guilt phase has already been decided, and now their job is only to decide, by law, what the proper penalty is?
Hasn’t it been the judge’s responsibility this entire time to maintain control over her courtroom?
Well since it’s only the taxpayers who are paying, cha ching, cha ching, let that tax payer cash register ring.
This should have never happened in the first trial. It’s outrageous for it to be repeated in the penalty phase.
It doesn’t take “Einstein” to know that if Jodi Arias was a man, this trial would have been over with in a matter of weeks. There is not one doubt who committed this terrible crime. There is not one doubt that she planned it, scheming for weeks maybe longer, collecting everything she would need, not only to murder Travis Alexander, but to cover her tracks completely and document the event in photos for future enjoyment.
All because he no longer wanted to date her, and who could blame him?
What happens to the next person who angers Jodi Arias?
There is no doubt that she has been and will manipulate, stall, deceive, blame the victim, show graphic photos of her overworked nether regions and play salacious sex tapes if the Judge will allow it. There’s no doubt that she will lie, lie some more and then lie again, in order to save her own skin. There is no doubt that she will use all of her terrifying character traits to strike out at someone in the future. There is no doubt that she will do everything in her power to escape prison, and there is nothing too low that she won’t do to save her own life.
This is why the death penalty most certainly is a deterrent and it is a powerful one. Just look at this cocky, self assured killer, who never thought she would be convicted, tap dancing as feverishly as she can, full of rage towards the real victims, that her own life is threatened. Do you think that she would have gone forward so happily with her savage plan had she thought for one second that there was a chance she would be sitting on death row for it? Absolutely not.
It’s one of the things that the sadistic, no-jury-will-ever-convict-me-girl, gave not a second’s thought to.
Had the stalker known then what she knows now, this story might have had a different ending because above all other things in her revenge-filled mind, her own life reigns supreme.
Much more important, it’s the only way anyone will ever be able to keep this raging sadistic narcissist from killing again.
She will kill again. It’s a no brainer. She has proven she will plot and plan from prison or anywhere else to get revenge for the situation she is in. She has proven herself not fit for society, on about 20 different levels. She will kill again. She will either kill one of the inmates in the prison or reach out to someone on the outside.
She will also plot and scheme to escape prison for the rest of her life.
There is a penalty in Arizona for what she did. It’s the death penalty. Any man who did this would already be on death row. There is no doubt what so ever that the right person has been found guilty of this heinous and cruel murder.
Jodi Arias is a terrible danger to anyone unfortunate enough to be around her. She knew full well that what she was doing was wrong, but she enjoyed doing it and had no fear of getting caught or convicted. The woman believes she is smarter than even the system, and with Judges like Sherry Stephens in charge, Arias is close to being correct.
Let’s get it right. Travis was butchered. He was almost decapitated. He was shot in the face, had defensive wounds and deep cuts all over his body. His neck was slashed down to the vertebrae. She chased him down the hallway with her knife, stabbing him all the way, and stood over him slicing his throat open as if he was a pig. There was no “fight” and this is not the result of a “mental illness.” This is the result of a sadistic narcissistic sociopath, who has no respect for human life and no remorse at all. This is someone who has demonstrated to the court time and again that she is, in fact, quite proud of what she has done, and if she doesn’t get her way, it will happen again.
Arizona is a death penalty state.
For Judge Stephens to usurp the process and try to aid the defendant in avoiding what is clearly the punishment a male would have received for such a brutal and horrendous crime like this, is unacceptable.
And now we have a secret court, for a convicted killer?
It just goes on and on and gets worse and worse.
So now, in a grand act of defiance against the very constitution of the United States, Judge Sherry Stephens has decided that Jodi Arias, convicted killer, can have “secret trials” and “secret witnesses.” In addition, these “secret witnesses” will also be allowed to dictate what goes on in her courtroom. All of this, in spite of the constitution.
Judge Sherry Stephens is the reason that a yearly review of judges should exist in every county and every state. I have never seen a judge so inept or biased, take your pick.
Death penalty defendants are tried and convicted every day in trials that are overseen by seasoned and unbiased judges.
This is not one of them. This is a joke.
Justice for Travis.
