The fact that Jodi Arias was so shocked that she was convicted of first degree murder is so very telling; We have all read and heard the rumor that Arias has claimed repeatedly albeit unofficially that no jury in the world is going to convict me of murder"!
While these statements were never completely verified, I personally believed that this was absolutely credible given that Arias clearly has anti-social personality disorder" IE she is a Sociopath as well I have oft mentioned in earlier posts that she shows many symptoms of Borderline Personality disorder also. These two make for a very bad combination in anyone especially an attractive woman using her attractive looks and sexual power as a type of lure and weaponry.
I will be elaborating upon the verdict and the upcoming penalty phase and Arias's professed preference to be given the death sentence as opposed to a long prison sentence. She might even be using this as a reverse psychology tactic with the judge and jury stating that death is the ultimate freedom"
Arias has spent years pursuing religious teachings almost always emulating whatever man she was dating at the time. She began life with her familial roots as a non denominational christian and as she had a series of long term relationships she traversed into the teachings and life styles of Buddhism, Wiccan, Christianity, Jehovah witness, and most recently she became baptized by Travis Alexander into the Mormon faith, which she continued to profess herself as after she and Travis officially broke up their relatively short term relationship.
