    Yet many members on the other thread seemed to think that not guilty equaled innocent, which only angered me.

    I have no idea whether Casey is a murderer or not, but the fact remains that this day, our justice system worked the way it was designed to, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    And yes, I believe that if she is indeed truly guilty, karma will come around and bite her in the ass.
    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.

    It just seems so unfair and perverted.

    What's to keep me from doing the same thing and being found "not guilty" even though my stone-cold face and certain behaviors have betrayed me?

    I also wonder what the judge felt and thought. Maybe he felt like throwing his gavel at her at that moment?

    And, oddly enough, Papa Roach's "Getting Away With Murder" sounds appeasing right now.

    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.

    The American Justice System always gets it right.

    But then a question worthy of its own thread arises...

    ...if our system is designed in such a way that intelligent and thorough people can slip through, is it really such a good system?

    No double jeopardy with that.
    Yes, double jeopardy still applies. Double jeopardy applies to the offense, not the specific charages.

    No justice system is perfect, because humans are human, and we are not omniscient gods. Even if someone commits a crime, there might not always exist enough evidence after the fact in order to convict him. That's just the way of the world. We can only hope that the police and the lawyers can be competent enough to allow jury and judge to render the correct decision.
