Saving Jodi Arias Has Cost Arizona Taxpayers $2 Million Already

By Lex January 30, 2014 @ 5:26 PM

Do you remember the good old days when somebody stabbed and shot somebody else unexpectedly in the shower and then everybody in the dead person’s family went and killed the killer and then there was a good cry, followed by a hoedown and people got loaded and made more babies because that’s how we deal with loss?. Yeah, I don’t remember it either. But in Arizona, it wasn’t all that long ago. If movies are the accurate retelling of history I think they are, Tombstone, Arizona knew how to get this kind of shit done right and quick. But modern day Arizona is now two million dollars and several years counting into keeping Jodi Arias alive after she went batshit crazy on her boyfriend for all the reasons batshit crazy people start stabbing and shooting their boyfriends. I’m not saying it’d have been better justice if somebody from Travis Alexander’s family would’ve just maybe snuffed her out early on, I am saying it would’ve been two million dollars cheaper. C’mon, kids need textbooks in Tucson. Let’s waive some rules and set her loose out in the desert with a ten minute head start.

    The AZ Prison System should run a brothel to get some of that money back when the incarcerated is reasonably good looking.

    Lesson to men everywhere: if you’re going to string along a psycho bitch because you like the deviant sex, make sure she’s not actually crazy enough to murder you.

    Two comments in a row (readykilowatt & Milto) containing good life lessons and cogent thinking. If only the stories themselves were as well thought out and written.

    Who’s that riding in the sun?
    Who’s the man with the itchy gun?
    Who’s the man who kills for fun?

    I’m confused. Were we somehow under the impression that your right to a public defender was somehow free ? Or that a high profile case should just have the first moron defense lawyer that walked in off the street ?

    Imagine if you found yourself on the receiving end of the all powerful gov’t prosecution. I bet you’d like to see the gov’t pick up the tab for YOUR defense.
