    I agree that the prosecutors probably OVERCHARGED In this case. I have seen lots of jury verdicts. I have reviewed dozens upon dozens of criminal trial transcripts. I believe that the finding of not-guilty because of a failure to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt was correct on the count of murder.

    I dont know what happened to that child. I didnt follow the trial much. I did see snippets of the mother of the child in court. I would love to spend a week or two inside of her brain. I have seen some amazingly inconsistent and inappropriate affect for a woman that lost her child, let alone one that is on trial for murdering her child.

    For those that have followed this trial and believe she is guilty...did the prosecution not do a good job or was the defense as masterful in spreading enough bull**** around that they managed to pull off another OJ?

    I didn't follow it much except the last week or so, but the prosecution did what they could with circumstantial evidence. I think they did overcharge this case, and I think whoever picked that jury for the state should quit and do something else. To me, if a mother is not responsible for her child, and the child dies, the death is not reported, and the mother goes off partying - that's a crime right there. It may not fit in Florida law, but it has to be covered by something.

    The question is open: How did the child die? Who dumped the body? Who knew about it and why wasn't it reported? Is it the entire family who conspired to keep the death of the child a secret and it got out somehow? IS there a mad child killer still running loose in Florida... I'm reminded of OJ saying he's going to spend every waking moment to find the real killer... uh huh.
    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.

    It's true - I looked up the florida statute. 1 year per count and a 1,000 dollar fine per count maximum.

    Both together - so subjectively tell me what they mean together and I'll subjectively tell you your wrong.

    The point of the post that he was responding to was my comment that Americans have been preconditioned to believe that the only "just" verdict in any case is a "Guilty" verdict. I suggested that if that were the case, then there would be no need for our jury system.

    In other words, true justice is not a "Guilty" verdict in every case, but rather a verdict based after hearing all of the evidence and engaging in meaningful deliberation. Not one tried in the court of media hype and certainly not one that always ends with a "Guilty" verdict.

    BTW....my point was irrespective of this case....I didn't follow the case and render no opinion whether this particular verdict was right or not. Based on what I've heard there was a proper basis for the jury's verdict, but my point was more a commentary on why some people get all up in arms whenever there is not a "Guilty" verdict.
