It is the failure of the state to make a decent case against her.
    What a "reasonable doubt" is these days, Im not sure.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: Casey Anthony Trial: Jury Reaches Verdict

    I am going to start out by stating a few facts.. (If anyone here was a member of the jury then please disregard this post..)

    Nobody here was on the jury..
    Nobody here saw the evidence they saw..
    Nobody here actually has to live with thisd verdict..

    Having that.. I think the people here that claim she is guilty is showing their ignorance.. You can't judgment on someone based on the tid bits the press choose to show us for ratings.. All the coverage that I saw potrayed her to be guilty..

    Since nobody here actually has the burdon of living with this verdict.. I don't see how any of us could or would dare to question thier judgement.. We don't have the insight they have nor the knowlege on the case.. 12 people voted unaminously that she was innocent.. It wasn't a hung jury, and they didn't deliberate that long..

    Reasonable doubt is simply any definable fact that says the accused could or might be innocent.. Nobody should be sentenced to life or death unless you are absolutey sure without any doubts..

    It is one thing to discuss this case, the evidence, who might have killed this little girl other than her mother..

    I am making no claim to her innocense or guilt.. I was not a jurist.. I respect the findings of the jury.. As I said in my last post.. I would rather a murderer be set free than someone who is innocent be wrongfully convicted..

    Typed on my phone.. Excuse typos..

    I mean, let's summarize the states argument: Casey's a liar and Kali is dead.



    Could have been an accident, with a fear of charges of criminal negligence, then a cover-up? If Caylee drowned in the pool, getting up early in the morning, and climbed into the swimming pool unsupervised, because Cindy had left the ladder up, and doors unlocked, could it have been feared by family members, that Cindy would be guilty of negligent homicide?

    If Caylee had drowned, and spent several hours in the pool before being found, could decomposition have started? If Caylee was found in the backyard swimming pool by a family member, wouldn't the family member pull the body out of the pool? Wouldn't the family member try to revive Caylee on the grass? Is there evidence of a decomposing body laid on the grass in the Anthony's back yard? Two cadaver dogs found a scent of human decomposition in the Anthony's back yard. I did not hear the Defense point out the evidence that Caylee drowned, in closing.

    Why couldn't Caylee have died by accident? Why do so many people seem convinced that someone had to have murdered Caylee? Didn't the cadaver dogs confirm Jose Baez's opening statement that Caylee drowned in the pool?

    Sometimes there is no way to protect your privacy, unless you tell a lie. All the Anthony family members seemed to be trying to protect the family honor, and privacy of each other, to some extent. The laws of perjury are often in conflict with the interests of personal, and family, privacy.

    I mean seriously?? The press played you all like a well tuned guitar.. Guilty equals ratings.. Everyone wants to hear how this poor mom killed her kid.. So they can sit back and say how horrible it was.. Call the mom names and hope she is convicted.. That is what you all want to hear.. That is ratings.. If a news show called her innocent, nobody would watch it..

    So congratulations to all the people that are dumb enough to call her guilty.. You just showed us all the exact reason the jury isn't allowed to watch the news or read the paper..

    It is pathetic to know that so many people can be snowed and brainwashed by the press..

    the jury did their job and they are being persecuted for it. Casey may well have committed this crime, but the State didn't prove their case. period. the jury made their decision based on the evidence they heard and not on their emotions. isn't that the sort of jury everyone would want if they were ever in a situation that required juror involvement? of course it is.

    i feel for all the jurors. what a ****ty position for them to be in. they must be wondering if justice will ever be served for little Caylee too.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    one thing for certain: IF I ever want to commit a murder and get away with it...I know where I'm going.

    Re: Casey Anthony Trial: Jury Reaches Verdict

    The jury did their job and they were there day in day out and they got instructions from the judge and came up with a verdict.

    As I just heard on Fox News we can have our opinions but we didn't see of hear all the evidence, and the Prosecution failed to convice the jusry and those 12 people who's opinions are the ones that count in the end, and we need to live with it, as we most of us did when OJ got off.

    another thing: how the hell they ruled not guilty on the child abuse charge is unbelievable. the mere fact that the kid was missing for a month before she told anyone is, in itself, child abuse. your kid is missing and instead of telling someone, you make up a lie about a non-existant nanny and go out partying?

    I agree with this. Had I been on that jury I couldn't in good conscience go with a guilty verdict for either murder or manslaughter. There is too much of a chance that the death could have been accidental. My feelings on her guilt aside, I'd have to go with the evidence presented. In my opinion, not enough was presented to prove she intentionally killed her child.

    I'm not excusing anything. I'm also not responding emotionally and irrationally to supposition and speculative evidence. Pictures of the crime seen before ANYTHING was moved shows the duct tape lying just in front of the skull (IIRC). NOT attached. It was ASSUMED that the duct-tape had been attached because the mandible was still connected to the skull.

    I might be a defense attorney's wet dream, who knows? I know I'm going to weigh what is presented very, very heavily if I'm tasked with convicting or acquitting somebody whose guilty verdict could lead to death. I'm not going to act like Nancy Grace and countless others who went around calling for Casey's head on a spike because I'm just SO SURE that she killed the child. I'm not sure. Nobody who looks at the facts of the evidence could possibly be sure. Anybody who says they are is acting on emotion, not logic.
