This is a great example of women who are damsel in distress and men who take advantage as an excuse for sexual gratification. When men are players, they are glorified but women are sluts. This is a tragedy of a toxic relationship. Both from dysfunctional backgrounds, hooked up for their own personal gain. She loved him but he wanted to play only. So what happens to them, is not our problem. People function like that and it is a hot and cold relationship of manipulation. There is no way to prevent them from carrying on. They were adults and now the world gets to judge and condemn the woman for all of it. It is all her fault and life goes on when the trial is over. Yet, in another place and time, another couple will be on the news. The cycle goes on. Seems like men are not held responsible for being players and for their addictions but women are held responsible? There is no balance objectivity to this trial because ppl are not asking enough questions about why the defendant did what she did. There are more that we don’t know about, like about her family? Her siblings? What creates us to become sociopaths or become manic depressive? She was suffering for too long and this is an outcome of untreated mental illness. Instead of condemning her, we can afford to question ppl’s state of mind so that we can get others mental help when we see signs. How to be effective in society, is to participate compassionately.

I understand Jody killed Travis, she admitted that. What I want to know is where is the :innocent till proven guilty. I just can’t believe it, you have Nancy Grace, Jane-Velez Mitchell, and a Vinnie Politan whos getting his 15 minutes in. Never heard of him, could never see him again, hope. They have already tried , and found her guilty. I think Jody was abused as a girl, and only worsen after that. Back off pit bulls. I also believe Travis has done things that might not say murder, but come on. He was a pompus, controlling a——-e. and sorry hes dead but thats truly my opinion. He did something to Jody that hurt her, pissed her off, and abused her often. She should of cut it off and kept him alive. Button up Nancy Grace, Jane-Velez Mitchell, and Vinnie Politan. We get tired of hearing it so let them do their job. I do like Jean she does a really good job. And even though hes trying to make himself bigger, not working, but Martinez is nasty, little pain in the ass, he needs to get his 15 minutes, and I do think Travis like liked little boys and she did see him looking at little boys online. Lets hope we don’t hear the little bully Martinez very much longer.

In Travis’ words, Jodi is a “skank” and in Jodi’s words, she’s a “piece of used toilet paper”. How anyone with any sense of decency could defend what she did is beyond me! There are millions of men in this world, who do not treat women with respect, who use women for sexual gratification. If every woman who has been “used” were to respond with “passion” to these less than desirable men, we would have so many murders and lawyers trying to justify the crimes than our court systems could handle. If you are being “used” and “abused” by a man, get the h–l away from him. Jodi had opportunity after opportunity to move on with her life, but she chose not to. She chose in a jealous rage to stab him 29 times, slash his throat from ear to ear, and shoot him in the head. This woman deserves the death penalty.

How strange that people wants to blame the victim Travis for just being a man. Men are made to ask, and it is up to the woman to say no. Jodi was a willing if not leader in that sexual relationship. Nothing Travis said or did could deserve his brutal killing. Jodi is a socialpath with no feelings except for herself.
