Jodi Arias Found Guilty Of Murder - Could You Send Someone To Their Death?
 
Have any of ya'll been following this case?

Thought she might get off like Casey Anthony but not this time. This murder was horrific.

Now the jury has to decide on punishment, life in prison or death.

If it came down to it could you send someone to their death?

I think I could do it but I'm sure I would think about it a lot.


PHOENIX – "Jodi Arias was convicted of first-degree murder Wednesday in the gruesome killing of her one-time boyfriend in Arizona after a four-month trial that captured headlines with lurid tales of sex, lies, religion and a salacious relationship that ended in a blood bath.

Arias was charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. Authorities said she planned the attack in a jealous rage after being rejected by the victim while he pursued other women. Arias initially denied involvement then later blamed the killing on masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said it was self-defense."

Per Wikipedia:

"Alexander's body was discovered in a shower at his home. His throat had been cut, he was shot in the head, and he was stabbed multiple times.[10][11] There have been conflicting reports over the number of stab wounds, with some reports stating 29[12] and others stating 27.[13][14][11][10] Maricopa County Medical Examiner, Dr. Kevin Horn, testified that Alexander's jugular vein, common carotid artery, and windpipe had been slashed. Alexander's hands also had defensive wounds. Horn further testified that Alexander "may have" been dead at the time the gunshot was inflicted.[15][16] Alexander's death was ruled a homicide."

I'd flip the switch.

In fact I've asked why we've stalled on our executions...

Donger 05-08-2013 04:01 PM

Sure.

Guess it depends on the state.

They have no problem killing people in Texas.

Of course. Why not?

Spott 05-08-2013 04:02 PM

In a heartbeat. I'd flip the switch on murderers, sex offenders and people that don't use their turn signals.

How bout people that park in Handicap spaces?

In this case they should walk her straight from the courtroom to the chair. She lied twice about the murder before finally admitting she killed him. We shouldn't spend a dime on keeping her alive for another day. I would have no problem sending her to her death and I would sleep like a baby afterwards.

That's more understandable. There are too many of those things.

That's a little harsh. They are already suffering.

Why do they get special places to park? Aren't they always preaching about wanting to be treated the same as everyone else?

Them too. Except for the handicap ones, of course.

You know she thought she was going to get away with it.

Then reality sets in....

Depending on the crime, yes I believe in the death penalty. And I also believe in a much more limited amount of appeals. The death penalty should not cost anywhere near as much as life in prison.
