    This is what you get sometimes when you rely on 12 people who were too stupid to get out of jury duty.

    she didnt put duct tape on herself, do google searches on the computer, give herself chloroform nor put herself in the trunk. the meter guy called the police three times to report the skull in the same location. george bought a gun to try to get caseys friends to tell him what they knew about caley, not to mention thousands of $ for a private investigator.  did you watch any of the trial??

    "Reasonable Doubt" is the key. The evidence was circumstantial. There no determination of cause of death. No physical evidence to directly link the defendant to the crime. The Prosecution came up short on "burden of proof".

    First, never show me jailhouse converations between a suspect and the parents.  Florida is a disgrace for putting those moments on Nancy Grace's show, who by the ways was booted out of the Atlanta district office office for suborning purjury and witness tampering. I wouldn't give a hoot if Casey did the bump and grind routine at a strip club with one of the dancers.  There was no evidence to support Casey had anything to do with what was probably an accidental drowing death in the family swimming pool.

    I'm not a judge but do know is ....

    #1 When a person makes up different stories/lies as to the whereabouts of her daughter.

    #2 Is seen out partying while her daughter is missing

    Shes not a very caring person or mother and either knows exactly what may have happened, or probably killed her own daughter.

    Just my take!

    If the prosecution would have included the lesser charge of criminally negligent homicide, they would have gotten a conviction. Going after the death penalty was emotionally driven, and not a prudent course of action.

    Sadly we cannot convict based on "You can't bullsh*t a bullsh*t artist" argument. And I think everything about this case was knee deep in it.

    Either way, this jury should have been allowed to rule on lesser charges which made sense. But no, this prosectution was all wrapped up into themselves and it was all or nothing with them. 

    What truly galls me is that mother, grandparents and lawyers are all going to be able to write a book or two and make millions of blood money on this childs short life. How f'n pathetic is that?

    I don't think the prosecution ever proved that Callee was murdered.  However unbelievable, it could have been an accidental drowning.  I'm not saying it was.  I'm just saying the the prosecution never proved how she died.

    Given how fast the verdict came back, I think the jury felt that way as well. 

    I think the prosecution knew they didn't have a case and was hoping to bluff Casey Anthony into pleading guilty.

    Re: Casey Anthony acquitted

    covering up whether you did or did not do an actual killing is as bad as murder itself. same reason why wheel men during a robbery where others are killed get the same treatment as shooters. That's a part that is right about the judicial system. So don't blow it completely up, just let's work on the "deal" aspect. Too much is given to the guilty people to get other guilty people. Why should a murderer finger other murderers and get 5 years while the ones he fingers gets 25 years. There should be some "fairness" in the way sentences are made. Sick of people getting off for being "witness" to murders when they are part of the reason how the person got murdered.....sorry, just bugs the heck out of me. And sometimes the real "brains" behind a murder can get a stooge to take the fall for them by utilizing their lawyer's wits or understanding the way things work in the system.

    I though of that too yesterday. I still don't understand why she's not guilty of manslaughter, or negligent homicide, nor do I want an explanation of the inner legal workings of our justice system and/or all of the involved attorney's tactics/approach/game plan.

    I am not sure of Florida law to state with any certainty, but I would think charges need to be specific. You cannot rule that it wasn't pre-meditated murder and find guilty of a lesser charge unless that charge has in fact been made available to the jury. I believe the Prosectution went straight for the throat and never even thought about anything else. Again, I am only speculating on this based on what I have read.

    Although the prosecution aimed their case around a murder one charge, manslaughter was on the table. 

    There were seven charges that needed to decided: Murder (after which they would have decided 1, 2 or whatever), some sort of child abuse (I believe) was the second charge, then manslaughter then the four counts of lying to police.

    I'm guessing that the jury felt that their was no definitive proof in that she was involved with the child's death -- at least beyond a reasonable doubt -- and that whatever she did wrong was after the baby was dead.

    Re: Casey Anthony acquitted

    Thanks guys.

    Well how this jury did not find the cover up of her disappearance not to be a form of child abuse is completely beyond me. As I see it, this mother showed depraved indifference to her child's welfare. And it doesn't matter if it was an accident or not. And if that isn't abuse, I have no idea what is.

    IMO - she killed this child. No mother is out participating in a hard body contest 2 weeks after the death of her child. Took my Aunt almost her entire life to reconcile my cousin's death and there wasn't a thing she could have done to prevent it.

    I don't know. I've always felt she came across as someone who didn't or couldn't deal with serious situations. So I think it's plausible that the baby died accidently, whether she was involved or not, then she tried to hide it because she didn't want to deal with it and all that partying was a way she tried to pretend nothing happened. It's not a far-fetched mind set.

    I think the jury felt the prosecution's scenario of premeditated -- killing the baby so she could party all the time -- was just as bizarre. If it was premeditated, wouldn't she have had a better end game?

    The whole case is bizarre. While her behavior after the fact was disgusting, there were a lot of holes in the prosecutions case. It was a hard case to win murder one for any prosecution team. They messed up in not shooting lower on some sort of negligent homicide scenario instead of trying to turn it into a death penalty case.

    That is exactly what I have been saying Roy. The prosecution did not prove squat as far as the charges listed except for the abuse charge. And I have no idea how the jury didn't see abuse.

    1) They couldn't determine the cause of death (did she drown, suffocate, poisoned, bleed to death).
    2) They couldn't prove that the death wasn't an accident (did she fall in a swimming pool or was she held under, who was watching her when she fell in the pool.  Did she get caught in a plastic material that covers the dry cleaning.  Did she run into a piece of glass that severed a major artery?)
    3) They couldn't prove that the mother transported the dead body
    4) They couldn't even prove that the mother was doing the internet searches.

    The only things they proved were that the baby died and the mother was a nut case.  Yeah, she probably killed her kid, but they never proved it.

    Sad.
