    I agree with this part, unless you are trying to say the jury is wrong.

    Because not guilty = innocent.
    Huh? No it doesn't.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

But yeah, ultimately the jury got it right based on what they had available.
    From what I have heard, and from what I know about trying cases, there was sufficient reasonable doubt especially on the First Degree Murder charge

    OJ Simpson was obviously innocent.

    And yes, no evidence = not guilty = innocent. It's true. Example? Casey Anthony.

    The jury dedicated time from their private lives and heard all the evidence against Casey Anthony. No real evidence against her was found. Thankfully the jury was smart enough to go on facts and not the personal opinion of Nancy Grace.

    Wake, I can't tell when you're being sarcastic and when you are not. If you are, you have GOT to be ****ting me. OJ Simpson was found not guilty. I'm 95% certain that he is NOT innocent.

    No, not guilty means the jury didn't find enough evidence to convict you of the crime. It means the prosecution didn't prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Casey Anthoney murdered Caylee. It does NOT mean that she is innocent.

    From what little I understand about the case and in my highly uninformed opinion, she should of been convicted of the child neglect and/or abuse charges.

    If I heard correctly, she failed to report the disappearance for 1 month.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If you want to know why "people like me" are angry, it's because Casey was found not guilty yet I am 95% certain that she is NOT innocent.

    The jury seemed to have overlooked that.

    I wonder why..

    Based on what you yourself just said there, if you were a juror in this case you would have to vote to acquit.

    Then you agree that not guilty does not equal "innocent"? Seems that way.

    And I would respond, deal with it. That's how our justice system works. It's not perfect, but the "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard is there for a reason.
