DISCLAIMER:  [**DISCRETION ADVISED**]  [Read Day 1 Here.]  [Both Days Here.]

One can never know what is in the head of a jury member.  Their question can be fueled by many things from the mundane to the pivotal.   You cannot tell with any certainty where the juror who asked the question is at in the case.  Any analysis that states the contrary is false.  The media analysis is often effective to viewers because they are “experts” and the jury is shrouded in “mystery”.  Therefore, they have wide lee-way with what they can say about them, including:  their looks, actions, reactions, interest or boredom, amount of notes, etc.  We cannot see any differently, so they can say whatever they want about them.

(NOTE:  Questions are not in order, but are numbered as they were given.  Keep in mind my numbering may be slightly different than other sites.)

What I have done is group the questions according to their similarity of topic to show the possible “interest” areas of the jury members.  One question might fit into more than one category, so I grouped it in the category I thought was most relevant.  Here is a list of most questions to least questions according to topic (click read more to see each question):

    So far, Ms. Arias has proved all the television shows wrong by taking the stand and making the prosecution appear so foolish.
