The Arizona Republic argues to give Jodi life in prison. What do you think?
“It is easy to see why prosecutors might want to keep going. Arias is a manipulative camera hog whose ego — if not her pocketbook — has expanded enormously in these past months. She shows every sign of enjoying her role. But exasperating as she may be, dropping the pursuit of the death penalty will not change the fact that on May 8, these same jurors convicted her of first-degree murder. She will get what she deserves.
The Maricopa County Superior Court system has been taxed by this long, expensive courtroom drama. Justice will not suffer if prosecutors agree to put this killer away for the rest of her days.
Arias can be on her way to prison to organize a penitentiary book club and quickly fade from the public spotlight. A few appeals, a few denials, and we’ll never have to see her face again.
It’s the right thing to do. By extending mercy to Arias, Montgomery can grant mercy to this community as well.”
