    It's possible, although it would be litigated heavily I think.
    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.

    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.
    There is nothing stopping you but you and your own sense of morals. I personally agree with the system the way it is because if I were on trial for a crime I knew I did not commit, I would want a jury to act based on evidence and not their personal feelings. That's not saying that Casey Anthony is innocent; I don't believe she is -- that's saying I want a system which errs on the side of letting a murderer go free than locking up (or executing) an innocent person.

    Child abuse & child neglect are charges. In this case, either charge still applies to the same offense and falls under the protection of double jeopardy.

    That's why the state charged her with murder, child abuse, and manslaughter -- hoping one of them would lead to a conviction. If they could do what you suggest, they would have only tried her for murder, knowing they could try her again for abuse or neglect or whatever should she beat the murder charge.

    What would you think if someone killed her, similar to what happened with Vander slu*, the guy who killed Holloway? Would you feel God may have passed judgment? I don't know. I just feel deeply that Casey is the murderer, and that she will walk.

    Good news Sgt I hadn't known that. That bastard deserves to die.
    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.

    Agreed, fortunately he has testified to his guilt for the murder of Stephenie Flores Ramirez. Then he retracted his confession. The judge ruled that his confession stands. In accordance with Peruvian law he will not be allowed to post bail. And defendants do not have a right to a speedy trial unlike Aruba and the USA. They cannot find an interpretur to work his case so he may rot in jail without ever being convicted of a crime.

    I could have sworn on one of the news shows that he was "killed in a Peruvian jail cell". I'll recheck to be sure.

    Nvm, I must have mistaken him for his father..

    Then again, there's a website called "riehlworld.com" that says he was found dead..

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

    I dont know. I wasnt there. I wasnt on the jury. I wasnt behind the scenes. I didnt spend a single minute in the court room.. I did not see all the evidence. And im guessing none of us here did either.











    But then again i really dont care about this court case.

    Where is the "I don't care about this" option at?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
