The Jodi Arias trial is finally coming to a close. Is it me or is this the longest trial in history? Just seems that way, I guess. But now the media has dug up "proof" that Jodi is nutty as a fruitcake and has been since before her trial. Video has been released of Jodi's interrogation. She's been grilled by detectives for hours when they leave the room. The cameras capture Jodi as she indulges in some wackadoodle behavior.
Left alone, Jodi begins giggling. Then she says to herself, "You should have at least done your makeup, Jodi, gosh!" Then she rummages through the trash.
She also sings to herself, a Dido song with the lyrics, "It might change my memory," -- appropriate since during the trial Jodi claims she can't remember anything about Travis's death. Then, most bizarro of all, she does a headstand up against the wall.
The behavior filmed had echos of the reported behavior of Amanda Knox as cops in Italy grilled her about her roommate Meredith Kercher's death. Remember how Amanda laughed and supposedly did a cartwheel in the station house?
The truth is, unless you've been arrested and charged with murder, you have zero idea how you are going to react. I think a lot of people, after being interrogated for several hours, and sitting for that long, are probably suffering aches and cramps and want to stretch and calm down -- hence doing yoga moves or headstands or carthweels. The makeup comment sounds more like she's being "ironic" than serious.
As for the laughing -- no proof whatsoever that someone isn't taking things seriously. During one of the darkest periods of my life, when I was absolutely emotional crushed, I began laughing uncontrollably. It's a common reaction when under stress. I have no idea why the media is treating this like it's proof positive that she's a lunatic -- I guess it gets more viewers that way.
So ... I don't think Jodi is doing anything that proves she's crazy or a cold-blooded killer in this video. The trial? That's another story. Anyway, if you're ever arrested and charged with murder, make sure you just sit there and don't move, because everything is being recorded!
