    Only following it when it comes up on CNN or land on it when "flipping/surfing"...mostly a waste of time...(I mean the way it's being sensationalized)...someone died, and the "trial experts" have turned it into a 3 ring circus!!

    Why even bring this up here?

    This happened in Mesa AZ. I am watching to see what is going on with the System! I think it is very interesting to watch.

    It's about a woman who killed her boyfriend by stabbing him 27 times, cutting his throat and shooting him in the head.

    But claims it was self defense.

    A week ago the amount that the State of Arizona has spent is over a Million. This women was tested for her IQ and It is very high. People have traveled long distances to wait in line at the court house to watch the trial. I agree that it is a show.

    What a waste of OUR money.
    She is a cold person and it shows.
    It cannot be self defense when it is a crime of passion.

    Looks like it should be GRITS which would make sense both ways.

    I just read that the trial for the young man who shot people in a movie theatre here is not going to trial until Feb 2014 and the trial would last nine months. something is wrong with our system!!

    I watch every minute....possibly getting justice for a young man and his family must be as newsworthy as how
    cute your dog is or some other "happy" news. Broaden your horizens.

    Trials like that bring out whats wrong with the American Justice System. She looks nothing like the photos of how she looked pre-trial...does brown hair, peter pan collars and gray clothing really make one an innocent person?

    I haven't walked that mile in her shoes, nor in his, so I am just waiting to hear the end result. God will take care of the rest

    I watch whatever Fox News summarizes. That trial is costing millions. Too bad that money isn't spent on our debt or helping those who truly need it.

    Another Casey Anthony! They've claimed she has everything except prostate cancer. I'm willing to bet she walks.

    I live in AZ so am a little interested, but do not watch the trial which has really become a circus. My heart breaks for the family of the young man because she can say anything she wants about him, yet he cannot defend himself against her accusations (or perhaps lies). Although I am in no position to judge since I have not watched it, it appears she is guilty, by her own admission. To me, it seems she should be in jail for life without parole, but I just cannot condone the death penalty. We are supposed to be a civilized nation, so we should not be in the business of killing others, even convicted criminals, IMHO. I am so glad I was not on that jury....so much time spent on this, and such a horrible choice hanging in the balance.
    Create with joy in your heart!

    I've caught it when I've gone to a friend's house. Boring, overrated, 27 times stabbed and they say guns kill people. looks like a knife or other sharp object did it this time. let's get back to issues regarding quilting.

    True, but then I suppose it also means that if our son or daughter or neighbor were accused, they, too, would receive the benefit of a trial with representation. I hate that we are spending millions on this case, but what is the other choice? We cherish this country because it protects the least of us (or at least that's the idea when everything works well).

    I watch it almost everyday....I lost alot of repect for our judicial system with Casey Anthony and if this girl walks I will lose all respect for it...I dont want her to get the death penalty I want her to rot in prision and have to think about what she did everyday of the rest of her life !!!!
    What she did was NOT self defense !!!

    I admit I am hooked, I watch it every day on HNN. It is fascinating to me to see the workings of the court.

    Oh I agree with post #!5, my how her looks have changed...
    Yes, another sickening Casey Anthony or an OJ Simpson and I predict--- some how--- some way--- she will go free.
    People can be highly intelligent and horribly dysfunctional, These people are not stupid, they are dangerous.
    They believe they are above the law or some how the law does not apply to them.
    She did not kill him once--- but three times to 30 times.
    Either way, guess we won't be seeing her on Cupid.com anytime soon.

    I have it on all day and it goes on to 10:00 at night with Dr. Drew. I agree I will lose respect for the judicial system if she get less than first degree. I think it is good that people get to see how the court system works, and can see why the juries make some of the decisions they do.
