We finally got to the juror questions and they were EXTREMELY pro-prosecution! I have gathered as many as I could from twitter and compiled them bellow in reverse order. I began with Camille Kimball’s question and answers until she apparently fell over from exhaustion. J The last few are taken from the timeline of Wild About Trial. Both are tweeting from the courtroom.
Tomorrow trial is supposed to begin a bit earlier at 9 their time 12 EST. ALLEDGEDLY. We have major storms rolling in now and so I am going to get this up now in case we lose power. What did you guys think of the questions? I bolded a few of my favorites. What were yours? Do you think any are sympathetic to Jodi? Speaking of Jodi…. She seemed like she was trying to cry at one point…
The following tweets were written by Wild About Trial 2 Who was present in the courtroom.
You pursued family of origin for Travis, why didn’t you pursue #JodiArias’ family? (She did, Jodi was not as abused as Travis, blah blah blah)
Alyce pauses, she is trying to count the numbers. At least 2 she says. #JodiArias
Of the 18 forensic cases, how many were cases where a male was the victim of abuse and not the perpetrator? #JodiArias
Did you ask #JodiArias if phone calls were ever part of those exchanges?
Are you aware of phone conv. made before during or after texts/im’s you reviewed? #JodiArias
Do you feel that being unable to interview Travis gives #JodiArias an unfair advantage in telling their shared story of abuse?
When assessing this case, to which did you give more weight? Written or verbal communication? #JodiArias She gave more weight to written.
Jurors still taking notes as Alyce continues to answer their great questions. #JodiArias
Hypothetically, if you were to discover #JodiArias exaggerated rather than understated the abuse would you have a diff opinion?
Why would you believe the things #JodiArias told you happened before the killing?
You looked at #JodiArias, gave a half smile and shrugged your shoulders when Juan was marking evidence. Why did you do this?
Alyce has liked #JodiArias in terms of working with her but they haven’t had a relationship other than the 44 hours she spent in jail w/her
Do you have personal feelings for #JodiArias or feel sorry for her?
Alyce claims she was looking at her friends in the gallery not #JodiArias.
Why have you looked at #JodiArias multiple times during the cross to meet eyes with her and give her a smile?
THE TWEETS THAT FOLLOW ARE BY Camille Kimball @CamilleKimball She is a professional crime writer.
I dont believe that #JodiArias manipulated me because it was all corroborrated by other people.
Have you seen any proof that #JodiArias abused by Travis other than her finger that she claims he broke? No
“It didn’t appear to me that she tried to outsmart me.” Shakes head dismissively. LVL in re #JodiArias
In magazines you sent to #JodiArias in jail, she wrote hidden messages, were those msgs meant for you? I had no idea of hiddn msgs
DId Travis speak negatively of women in his journals? No. #JodiArias
Did Travis ever sound angry in his journals? No #JodiArias
There was a typo before. It was a great “dad” leading that list of great men in her life. #JodiArias
She says her dad was here yesterday. We missed that i guess. #JodiArias
Is it possible your view of men in general is biased? “I don’t think so, I have a great day, son, brother” #JodiArias
Wouldnt’ the majority of men you know be abusive because of your work? “I have lots of male friends, colleagues,” #JodiArias
ALyce: I didn’t see anything else that made me think it was true. #JodiArias
Why didn’t you look more into Travis’ text that he feared #JodiArias? Wouldn’t this be important?
How do u know Travis “ordered” #JodiArias? Ans: he did’t say please or anything.
How did you validate info since you only had one person’s version? By using collaboritive data.#JodiArias
You claim Travis did character assassination? but if it’s just between the 2 of them, isn’t it just name calling? No #JodiArias
You claim #JodiArias not getting medical treatment for battering to protect Travis rep. Why couldn’t she get help but but lie?
Arent you basing your opinion in re pedophilia on what #JodiArias told you? Yes I am. Starts talking about the sex tape, too
Couldn’t a perpetrator be a she? Yes. #JodiArias
Could a female abuse a man to the point of killing him? LVL wants the quesiton repeated, Yes, women can be perpetrators. #JodiArias
Could a survivor also be a perpetrator? Yes, a term called “dominant aggressor” tries to figure out who of the pair is worse. #JodiArias
U said “survivor” several times, please define it. “Survivor a more positive, powerful word than victim.” #JodiArias
The point is these are not long relationships –objection, sustained. #JodiArias
Have any other Travis gf’s said he abused them? “Lisa A. said he put her down….” #JodiArias
LVL: you don’t have to be abusive because someone gives you power. #JodiArias
Was it a known fact Travis was trying to find someone to marry? Yes, it was, more explanation to come from LVL…. #JodiArias
Are you aware #JodiArias GPs house was broken into 2 days after fight? Yes, I knew.
Other than #JodiArias did you interview anyone face to face? No, I did not.
Is it possible IM about Travis temper was a running joke between them? “It didn’t sound like it” #JodiArias
You say #JodiArias didn’t want to fight back in earlier incident, are you saying she would rather lay there, possibly die? (I dunno what she was thinking she said she did not want to hurt him…..)
Juror asked if #JodiArias ever lied to her and ALyce is saying in a long way I just dont think so.
U stated Travis slapped #JodiArias across the face, is that what Jodi told you? Not exactly
Combined a trip to her daughter’s wedding with a visit to #JodiArias
Her first visit was October 2011 with #JodiArias It was a 2 day visit for ALyce
DOes not address the Travis ALexander’s T shirt part of the question. #JodiArias
Other than #JodiArias’s word, what evd. do you have the she ever received Spidey undies? LVL has txts of Jodi saying she would bring them.
LVL: Women in violence “don’t know when to stop.” Officers, soldiers are trained, still go “over the top.” #JodiArias
Would you say #JodiArias response to threat was way beyond neutralizing it? Do you see this in cases?
Wouldu classify their relationship as love/hate? I would classify it as abusive. #JodiArias
Is it possible #JodiArias abused Travis? (Many questions like this in a row) ANswers are, I don’t have evidence of that
Is it possible #JodiArias did not write those incidents of abuse in her diary because they didn’t happen? LVL stopped fromsaying TA… …TRavis didn’t write incidents either. #JodiAriasll
That #JodiArias lied after the killing of TA does not make her a liar. It makes her a frightened human being.
I don’t know that everything #JodiArias told me was true. I have enough backup, though. LVL to juror question
LVL wants to explain she did not base her assmtn on solely what #JodiArias told her
YOur testmny has been based on what #JodiArias has told you. Proven that she lies. How are you able toknow she’s truthful to u?
#JodiArias’s mom scribbling copiously.
Does it concern you that you can’t get a story from Travis? Yes, I wish I could get info from Travis, I got if from frends,etc #JodiArias
Could 2 kids facing identical abuse situations grow up to handle it differently? Ans: Sure #JodiArias
Could Travis’ actions be considered defensive rather than abusive? Ans: Any1 can get angry, but these tirades byond that #JodiArias
Do you think #JodiArias said some bad things back to Travis but we don’t have those records? Answer is generaly, no
Could #JodiArias also have been a perp in her reltnship w/Travis? “I dont see any evidence of that”
My goal is to get as much info as I can from both sides cuz I don’t want to be biased. LVL #JodiArias
How does it affect your assessmnt when you dont have the whole story? “Often, you don’t have the whole story on murdr case.” #JodiArias
Do you think #JodiArias is exaggerating abuse events? “I think anything is possible but difficult to believe’ considering TA
If #JodiArias slapped/kicked her mother in the past, is she a perp? “She could be seen as someone who did it in the past.”
Is it conceivable a woman would kill her partner just to get away from abuse? “Conceivable? yes, but rare” #JodiArias
Objection sustained by Juan but now we have to go the Sidebar and whisper amongst our special selves. #JodiArias
Have u seen victims kill their partners cuz they see no other way out? #JodiArias I’ve worked on 1 case where that was true-
LaViolett says most of Travis’ relationships were not very long term. #JodiArias
WHy would a perp be an abuser in one relationship but not another? Answer: it depends in part on the level of intmcy #JodiArias
We have heard #JodiArias hit/kicked her mother, would that characterize her as an abuser? Answer: I believe it happend whn teen (The old teenagers are assholes response)
Therefore, they have moved on to the next question. Which is can survivor be the victim? #JodiArias
Judge is asking LVL to answer the last question with a Yes or NO. LVL says that’s not easy. #JodiArias
Wow, and now there’s another question in the box at the jury rail. #JodiArias
LVL had started to say that when abused women become violent, it tends to be self defense. Juan jumped on that.
IS it common for women in abusive relationships to snap and become violent? #JodiArias Her answer is interrupted by Juan
LVL: Travis pushed sexual innuendo & PPL on women, looked for openings. He was good w/women, but he also irritated them.
Could friends/family have embellished to help #JodiArias? Response is, it’s possible but I didn’t see that, longwinded stuff.
COuld #JodiArias have exaggerated to help her case? I found she was a person who did not exagerate. She tended to minimize
The ARchbishop of New York, Lance Armstrong, BIll Clinton all lied, she says. People lie. #JodiArias
Men who lived wtih #JodiArias never described her as a liar. Lying accusations came from her teen years. ALyce LVL to juror question
When I first met #JodiArias she was very protective of Travis. Had a hard time looking at herself as a battered woman.
Do you think #JodiArias could have lied to you to help her case?
I learned about his anger from his own words and how he talked to #JodiArias & to women in general.
Jurors all seem more engaged now. #JodiArias
He was made fun of because he wasn’t able to bathe sometimes as a child. He was attractive to women. #JodiArias
I learned that he was a speaker, good at it, a man who knew his scriptures, an incredibly abusive background/childhood. #JodiArias
What did you learn about Travis? #JodiArias
ANswer: I felt I had a pretty good view of #JodiArias from other people.
IF you had read earlier entries, do you think it would have given you a better pic of #JodiArias?
Did you read any earlier journal entries? No, I didn’t #JodiArias
Jury questions now. #JodiArias
