    depends on the case. I would agree if we are dealing with violent street criminals or the OJ types who used a racist ploy to get away with murder. when it comes to white collar criminals, the soft hearted left, who can find numerous excuses for a black gang banger who shoots up a bank, tend to start looking like Madam DeFarge screaming for the heads of the "nobles"

    She wasn't proven innocent. She was proven not guilty. You sound like the people who say that Michael Jackson was proven innocent

    She definitely isn't innocent. It is pretty hard to believe she didn't kill that kid, but there is just not enough evidence there.

    Then again, if she was less attractive, the case probably wouldn't have gotten as much media attention as it did.

    Curious, here - just what evidence would have had to be present for her case to have gone 'guilty' ?

    What could be missing?

    I know there's really no point in debating it more - but still - what more evidence was necessary in this case? We all know what WAS presented as evidence - are people really saying that because there was no discernable wounded flesh on the bones of this dead child or no bugs that there's a complete lack of evidence? Because her mother didn't beat her in public there's just no way she didn't get rid of her because she was in the way? Becaue a roll of ductape was thrown away in the garbage - and a roll of garbage bags was used up - that casts sufficient doubt?

    Look - if she didn't kill this child then someone did. I'm still disgusted that this is where it ends for this poor child who was just thrown out.

    If all this actual evidence was 'insufficient' then how on earth do completely innocent people get sentenced to life in prison and even death row? Hundreds every year are released due to absolute innocents - btw . . . just what sense does this make to anyone?

    I'm more so just disgusted more and more by our horrid judicial system and it's complete inefficiency.

    Re: Casey Anthony Trial: Jury Reaches Verdict

    Well, I read the comments on the first page so I can imagine how the rest of the thread went. I believe the bitch is guilty too. But as a legal matter, the prosecution's case was very, very weak. Most important, the medical examiner did not declare Caylee's death a homicide, and also declared the cause of death to be "unknown". I figured the jury would convict because Casey is a hateful person. If they had, I'm pretty sure it would have been overturned on appeal. I believe the jury was sitting in there saying to themselves the following:

    Is Casey Anthony a pathological liar, who knows what happened to her daughter and didn't care? Yes. Is she charged with not caring that her daughter is dead? No.

    Is there any proof that Casey Anthony caused Caylee's death, deliberately or not deliberately? No.

    Is there any proof that Caylee was actually murdered? No.

    Is there any evidence that Casey Anthony knew her daughter's body was rotting in a swamp? Yes. Is she charged with improper disposition of a body? No.

    If the police had done their jobs and followed up thoroughly on Kronk's report of seeing "what looked like the top of a skull" back in August, there may have been tissue left for toxilogicals, DNA or other evidence available. As it was, I would have had a hard time voting "guilty" for a death that couldn't even be labeled as homicide in the first place. The child could have choked on a hot dog, for all we really know. We'll never learn the truth, because only Casey knows the truth and she isn't capable of telling it.

    Anyway, don't hate on me. I would like this cold-hearted bitch to rot in jail, too, but legally the jury really had too little evidence and too much reasonable doubt.
