Jodi Arias and capital punishment

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

This week, convicted murderer, professional liar and psychopath Jodi Arias begged jurors to not kill her and give her life in prison.

She said she “lacked perspective” when she told a local reporter in a post-verdict interview that she preferred execution to spending the rest of her days in jail.

How sick is this? Not Arias. She’s sick, that’s for sure, but how sick are we as a society still implementing the death penalty?

For all practical purposes, 90% of the world doesn’t execute.

    The jurors clearly perjured themselves when they claimed they'd be open to delivering a death penalty. If they would never entertain the thought they should have admitted it and gone home. Like Juan Martinez said "Jodi murdered Travis 3 times"…then the stupid jury killed him and his family, a 4th time. Let's see, a multitude of stab wounds including to the back of his head and in his back….nearly decapitated…and shot in the face. And, followed down the hallway when he somehow found the strength or will to attempt to escape, and Jodi wasn't going to allow any escape. She finished him off at the end of that hallway. If that pig doesn't deserve a death penalty who does ? Filthy, ignorant jurors.
    Unless I'm mistaken, if Jodi gets life then she can work her way up to medium-security and out of maximum for "good behavior". And it would somewhat improve her life.
    On death row however, she's be shut down in her cell like the rodent that she is.
    Thanks to the idiot jury, she might get to "enjoy" medium security and a few extra privileges there. Way to go.
