Well, the verdict is in. Or shall we say NO verdict is in. The jury in Jodi Arias case decided today after 13 hours of deliberations that THEY could not decide whether or not she gets life or death. According to Arizona law, the jury had to come to a unanimous decision on LIFE or DEATH. And if they could not do that, they got to go home and make it someone else’s problem. See, the rule is if there is no unanimous verdict, that jury would be excused, a NEW jury would be impaneled, and the penalty phase would begin again. All those pictures would be shown again. All the lies would be told again. All the tears will flow again. Whether or not you believe in the death penalty, I think we all believe that families in pain should be given closure. A wound that was on its way to be healed, has just been ripped open. Again. Justice isn’t always doled out in the way we think it should be. And although often promised to be, rarely is it swift.
