    Drop it – without proof the jury could have never sent Casey to death row.

    Not guilty is not the same as innocent. Proof beyond reasonable doubt isn’t to much to ask when a life hangs in the balance. A trial is simply there to determine whether or not the accused has been proven guilty. Nothing else. It’s not a reality show.

    I’m disappointed in you, Glenn. Do you really believe that, or are you just pandering?

    Why is everyone angry at the jury? Their anger would be much better aimed at those who deserve it. The Prosecutors. They overcharged and underproved their case. If they had gone with Manslaughter, Casey Anthony would be in jail for at least another 10-12 years…

    Wrong. They showed that Casey died, there were suggestions as to how. They could not prove how she died and they could not prove who did it.
    They might have been able to prove manslaughter. Proving 1st degree requires that you not only prove how, and who, but that she was pre-meditated in her assault. They did none of those things.
    They jury reached the only decision they legally could.
    Or do you honestly think we should start convicting people on who we think did it?

    I am terribly disappointed at all the Americans who are not respecting our justice system and the decision that the jurors made without media influence.

    Yeah, too bad there WAS no evidence, only speculation and guesswork.

    During the prosecution’s closing arguments, Burdick said, and I quote: “The question is no longer where is Caylee? We know where Caylee Marie Anthony is. The question is no longer what happened to Caylee Marie Anthony. We know what happened to Caylee. The question is who killed Caylee?”
    The prosecution didn’t have have an unequivocal answer to that last question, and neither did the jury.

    BS!!!! In a circumstantial evidence trial (which this was) the jury is allowed to make inferences. If Casey didn’t kill Caylee, then who did? George? Cindy? Lee? The Shaggy Haired Stranger? I thought the prosecution proved circumstantial guilt with or without the "smell of death’.

    No, Lonnie, they aren’t. The prosecution MUST prove their case, and they must prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. They didn’t, plain and simple. Since they charged her with first degree murder, they not only needed to prove that she killed the kid, but also that she did it on purpose. They proved NONE of that.
    We should all hope that you are NEVER allowed to serve on a jury.

    Unbelievable isn’t it?

    I can’t believe the left hasn’t accused Bush, Palin or Bachmann for the murder. Their usual M.O.!

    To be honest, I think we’re all reacting to how she behaved after the death of her child. If one of my kids died, I wouldn’t do the following things (which she did do):
    - Get a new tattoo that means “Freedom.”
    - Go out clubbing
    - Lie to police about an imaginary nanny being the suspect
    I’m absolutely disgusted with her personal behavior. Yes, there was no concrete evidence to directly tie her to the murder of her child, but what she did afterwards was morally reprehensible. If only you could punish someone for #failing at life.

    Holy crap Gary really? The prosecution clearly dropped the ball on this case and you’re blaming the jurors? The jurors can’t make a decision based on what they think…they have to make a decision based on the evidence presented them. If they don’t do this then what is the point of “innocent until proven guilty” and “trial by a jury of their peers”?

    DAs often “go for broke” with the wrong charges, seems to be the case here. Defense attorneys often DEPEND on such errors, or others, to establish “reasonable doubt”- which is the legal test, even if it does preempt what appears “morally correct” emotionally, but not under the law.
