    Re: Casey Anthony Trial: Jury Reaches Verdict

    There is something seriously wrong in America, when people expect that the only correct verdict in any trial is GUILTY. We have a jury system for a reason....we don't allow juries to watch news and read papers for REASONS. Too many people have the mentality that the only "just" verdict is a guilty verdict and get all up in arms when a jury that listened to the evidence and deliberated acquits someone of a crime. These same people sit silent or remain uninformed whenever an innocent person is convicted.

    On a separate but releated note: I don't think I could be on the jury for a death penalty case without going absolutely crazy. You're potentially holding somebody's life in your hands, and what if you get it wrong?

    Re: Casey Anthony Trial: Jury Reaches Verdict

    I have a feeling that some careers in the DA's office and law enforcement just took a beating for the verdict in OC. That case was mishandled from the start! The DA and law enforcement forced the verdict here for sure. I think that the jury made the right decision based on the evidence that was presented to them- which is their job. The prosecution did not successfully prove their case to the point where I would have felt comfortable handing down a 1st Degree murder charge. We all know that she probably is guilty, but its not who's innocent or guilty, its who can prove who is innocent and who is guilty.

    From the limited info I have seen on this (I didn't follow the trial), I would probably have agreed with the rest of the jury if I had been on it.

    It sounds like she was convicted in the media and the evidence didn't support that conviction.

    But I dunno.

    You said you would buy tickets to a reply about her life being in danger. How else do you interpret that?
    That it will be entertaining. Not the same thing as wanting someone dead, obviously.

    You assumed incorrectly.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Just because a case doesn't get the ruling you want or agree with, doesn't give you the right to condemn her and call for her death.. According to the law and our system of justice.. Like OJ, she is innocent.. Whether we agree with it or not is irrelevent.. It is the judgements they got..

    I would be more concerned about the innocent people that are on death row about to die even though they have committed no crime and the justice system has failed them.. I would rather see a murder go free than an innocent person be put to death.. To me it is worse when someone who is innocent is found guilty than someone who may be guilty is found innocent..

    I don't know what happened to this little girl.. As I am sure most of us here don't..

    In the end, justice has been served, and if you are an american, you will respect the judgement regardless of how you feel about it.. While it isn't perfect, I still believe that our system of justice is the best on the planet..
    I agree totally with you on this, I didn't follow this case at all, but unless their the physical evidence she must be acquitted in my opinion. In all reality, I think she killed her daughter, but you can't convict somebody on "feelings" you must have the evidence.

    which brings up an interesting slant on things.
    this theory invites that if someone can hide a body long enough, you can get away with about anything.
    and finding Caseys DNA on the remains, in this case wouldnt prove anything.
    You basically needed either a witness or a weapon.

    It was obvious to all that she knew something, but that wasnt the charge.

    So you're saying a blueprint legally has now been provided to future mothers wanting to unburden themselves of their child. I can see the possibility of that happening.

    I agree, our system while not perfect, it works. The prosecution was not able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that this woman murdered her baby. So the verdict was correct. I think this is actually the first time dd and I have agreed on anything.
