    Which is why you would get eliminated as a juror in voir dire.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Even with emotion, logic must prevail. That too, is human.

    Re: Did the Jury get it right in the Casey Anthony trial

    Yes, unfortunately, the jury's verdict was consistent with the evidence, or lack thereof, and the specific charges filed. I've always said that Casey Anthony knew what happened to her daughter and knew her child was rotting in the swamp. That said, there wasn't a scintilla of physical evidence linking her to any crime, only very flimsy circumstantial evidence proving nothing but the fact that Casey Anthony is a pathological liar who knew her daughter was dead and was willing to throw her own family under the bus to justify herself.

    The biggest problems, in my opinion, was that the prosecution could not even prove that a homicide had been committed. There was no official cause of death, and the ME couldn't even state that the death was a homicide. The ME ruled the cause of death "Unknown."

    Casey Anthony wasn't charged with being a heartless bitch who didn't care that her daughter was dead. She wasn't charged with improperly disposing of human remains. She was charged with first-degree murder, with evidence that couldn't even prove that a homicide was committed.

    I think we can thank the good-for-nothing cop that Kronk took to the swamp in August, and who was too lazy to walk a few feet through water to find remains which might have had sufficient tissue for toxilogical and DNA testing. It sucks that this bitch is free, but there seriously wasn't enough evidence to convict her, and if the jury had found her guilty I'm convinced it would have been overturned on appeal.

    Yep. Thankfully they did the right thing and feel so bad for this jury as now people are hating on them so much. Had I been on that jury? It woulda been a hard choice but I would have went the same way. Both sides failed to prove their case and the way little Caylee died or motived was never proved.

    I understand people being pissed off but feel this case is a prime example of how our jury system does work. The public had already tried Casey but the jury ruled with their minds rather than their heartstrings.

    No double jeopardy with that.
    They can try but it would be a waste of tax dollars as she would probably be found not guilty.
