Transcript for Nancy Grace on Arias' 'Save Me So I Can Sell T-Shirts' Plea
the worst outcome I could possibly think of. I thought I'd rather die, but as I stand here now I can't in good c conscience ask you to sentence me to death because of them. Jodi arias pleading for her life yesterday in court. Pointing to her family. We'll get more on that in our remarkable legal team, dan abrams and nancy grace. The mystery is over right now. We did see jodi arias yesterday plead for her life. Very well prepared presentation. You know, I disagree with you on that. Yes, she may have had copious notes by which she spoke with the jury, but I think she left out some major points such as turning to travis alexander's family and asking their forgiveness. I think that may have been a good start. But that performance was not the end of the jodi arias show yesterday because she went straight from the courtroom for yet another tell-all series of interviews last night while we're all asleep and putting our children to bed, arias is back in front of the lights and camera where she blames everybody but herself. She says she feels betrayed by her lawyers that they didn't do a good job. She's betrayed by the jury. She blames them. She blames the public, that they just want to enjoy persecuting her, some twisted type of schadenfreude but what amazes me, she continues to trash travis alexander with her last public words. She is still trashing her own murder victim. Look, I agree with nancy in terms of the interview, right, i mean, you look -- you watch this interview and say to yourself what is she doing? Betrayed by the jury. I mean just shut up. Seriously, stop. She's just got to stop. On the other hand, when it comes to the statement itself that she gave in court, you know, i disagree with nancy in this sense, if she had turned to travis alexander's family and expressed remorse, my guess is that many people probably including nancy would have said it's disingenuous. Which is what jodi said in the interview with ryan. No matter what she said because of the case that's been built up against her, almost any apology at this point is going to be seen as hollow, right. So I think that -- I don't think it's ever too late. And, nancy, if -- come on. So I can sell t-shirts. If she had turned to travis alexander and done exactly what you said, my guess is you would have gotten -- travis is dead. You would have come on this morning and been horrified at the -- dan, don't make it about me. Don't make it about me. Please don't because I remember dan abrams since you brought it up, I remember when I came down off the witness stand after my fiance was murdered and I walked by the defendant, he and his whole bunch of lawyers, they all looked down and you know what, if she had said I'm sorry, god forgive me, I'm sorry, I don't deserve leniency but I am begging for it, I wish I hadn't done it, but she didn't do. Instead she said spare my life so I can sell t-shirts that's not what she said. And her art. It's like tracing magazine ads. It just -- I found it to be disingenuine, but, hey, that's just me. I agree on the point about the t-shirts. She gets up there, the biggest mistake she made, she said, oh, you know, I'm going to be selling the t-hurts with the word "survivor" own them. You have to ask yourself after the jury already rejected that notion why she would bring that up. We're out of time. Do you think she -- hey, dan. Do -- go ahead, nancy. Well, I just think it's very interesting that overnight she decided there's no longer a hell. I find that very convenient that she gave up all that. I think her best hope is for one or two -- there's no way she's getting a unanimous jury that will give her life in prison. I think her best hope is one or two of those jurors that hold out. Dan and nancy, thanks very much.
