    Casey Anthony Verdict, jurors safety?

    Source: Casey Anthony verdict could haunt jurors - USATODAY.com

    "Outside the courthouse , protesters chanted "Justice for Caylee" as they waved signs that said "Arrest the Jury!!" and "Jurors 1-12 Guilty of Murder."

    Opinions on the safety of the jurors? Is it fair for their names to be released to the public? Heated but appropriate debate is welcome.

    I never once even saw the jurors really, but I wouldn't release the names.

    Ya we really didn't get to see much of them at all. Which is probably a good thing. It's just the fact that a large portion of America disagrees with the verdict. There are some crazy Americans out there. :/

    I think Perry should continue to refuse to release the names of the jurors until such time as the public anger dies down. A new trial, tragedy, or situation will arise to distract the public. Until then, they should protect these people, IMO.

    It is not even close to the same thing to see coverage of a criminal trial on TV or hear about on the radio as it to be in the court room and see the whole trial form start to finish.

    I this case I did manage to see much of the trial and as much as I may think something awful took place here the jury was right in that the Prosecutors were unable to prove anything they claimed other than the poor little girl was dead.

    They didn't have a clue how she died or who might have killed her if it was murder, and the law is clear they have to prove things.

    Feeling that she was murdered and that Casey did it is not proof.

    As I said in another Thread I would like to know the make up and education level of those who want the jury to pay for doing what they were charged and sworn to do.

    It's hard to be on a jury and having someones fate in your hands.

    The controversial part is that most people believe that the jury was not sure exactly the procedures they needed to take..Here we have a couple month long trial and the jury decided in less than 11 hours? Makes you wonder.

    This is why publishing huge court cases like this on TV where public opinion doesnt mean **** is dumb and not needed and is only used to boost corporate media ratings and only diverts attention from important issues going on around the world and at the country abroad.

    There names should not be released.

    People get way too involved in these kinds of cases. If you get that emotional about something you're not directly involved in you need to see a therapist to check on your mental health and projection issues.
