|Arias and Pistorius: cell mates?|

I don’t know how closely you have been following a couple of cases but my husband and I have found Jodi Arias fascinating. She looks like the girl next door. However, don’t be fooled. She stabbed her ex-boyfriend 30 times, shot him in the face and slit his throat.
She lied twice, saying at first she wasn’t there, then ninjas did it and then she claimed self-defense.
I have watched her try to explain why all the lies if it was self-defense and even saw a new “friend” say anyone who is scared lies. Really?
I’ve heard her describe their relationship and say she feared for her life even though they were broken up at the time and he allegedly planned to take another woman to Mexico.
I think what she feared was that the man she wanted was slipping away.
Perry Mason, where are you? Matlock — got any ideas?
I would make a really crappy juror. I say balderdash when I see or hear balderdash. Once she said something that I knew could not be true, I would be done. A liar is a liar is a liar.
I feel Miss Arias just makes it harder for people who are truly abused and fighting for their lives and/or those of their children.
The only question that remains for me is why do I keep watching this stuff?
Oscar Pistorius walked out of a South African court Friday a free man after he was release on bail ahead of his premeditated murder trial over the shooting death of his girlfriend.
He says he thought she was an intruder in his bathroom when he fired seven shots through the closed door. Lots of questions remain unanswered here, too.
If he thought there was an intruder in his home, why didn’t he check on his girl-friend to make sure she was OK? Why didn’t he just call police or get them both out of the house?
I realize neither of these two is going to tell me what really happened. The time for that has passed. They are now fighting for their lives and anything goes that will help.
I think these two would make great cell mates. They spend their time making up silly reasons for why they do things.
