Songs The only surviving member of the Bee Gees, Barry Gibb wrote a song about the case, but I could not find the song, I do not believe it has been released yet THEORY 4: LABELING Jodi Arias is definitely an example of labeling theory because in the trial multiple psychologists labeled her as a compulsive liar and obsessively jealous. These labels did not stimulate her to commit the crime, they were assigned after the crime. Her primary deviance, the social rule she violated was: do not stalk your ex, and do not kill people. She killed Travis Alexander in a jealous rage over him being with other women. She was initially in denial of responsibility, and eventually tried to portray Alexander as the perpetrator. She initially claimed that criminals had broke into their house and assaulted and killed Alexander. She later changed her story to say that she killed him accidentally. Then, she claimed that he was assaulting her and she killed him in self defense. These are only a few of the story changes Arias made, which lead to the compulsive liar label. She also claimed that Alexander was a pedophile, sexually enjoying pictures of little boys; there was never evidence to back this up. She also claimed that he abused her; no evidence either. She also tried to blame her parents

for abusing her as a child. THEORY 4: LABELING (CONT.) Labeling theory also applies to Arias because she would constantly condemn, the condemners in court. Jodi Arias to Juan Martinez I think Im more focused on your posture and your tone and your anger so its hard to process the questions,. When Arias was o the stand she was very confrontational an snippy with the lawyers, as if they were at fault for ever doubting her. Arias also tried to appeal to a higher power, another example of labeling theory. She claimed that only God could be a witness to what went through her mind when she killed Alexander, to which prosecutor Juan Martinez replied Gods not here. We cant subpoena him,. Jodi Arias is a classic case of Labeling Theory. She meets nearly all of the typical signs. The only one she did not exhibit is denial of injury, however it would be impossible to deny that a man died.
