    I was amazed at the results.... I actually had an emotional reaction.
    No opinion, but I will find it VERY interesting what the jurors say about the results....

    Anthony only found guilty on lying to law enforcement.

    This was truly a hard one to figure out. But here's my problem with the Defense's stance that the daughter accidentally drowned in the family pool and then tried to cover it up.

    In one of the videotapes of the parents talking to Casey in jail, the mother mentions that the news was saying that Caylee may have drowned in the pool, and Casey laughed and said "surprise, surprise."

    Crazy case.

    I'm disgusted. How they came to this conclusion is absolutely mind-boggling. This woman has no life in front of her because she will be a pariah that no one wants a thing to do with -- probably including her parents. Casey Anthony had better hope that some movie company wants to pay her a small fortune for her story, because that's about the only way she could possibly survive this mess.

    Unfortunately, that's exactly what's going to happen. That's the new America: bad people get rewarded. She'll write a book, she'll go on news tours, but one thing she won't do........try to find out who killed her daughter.

    No. Double jeopardy is attached.

    I would also say that having recently served on the jury for a murder trial here in NYC, it's really difficult to have evidence (aside from a witness, confession or DNA) that gives you the ability to say someone is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Despite being a pretty hardcore leftist, I'm also very into law and order, so I'm not a bleeding heart when it comes to criminality.

    Agree. Reminds me of the Simpson verdict. These jurors are gonna get pounded. This woman rides around with the rotting dead body of her own daughter in the trunk of her car, and all she's being convicted of is lying to the police?

    I'd be careful Todd, I'm always open minded when it comes to anything like this.. perhaps its having a law degree that changes the senses. I'm waiting
    to hear from the jurors... the only opinion that counts!

    Never

    Agreed. the US Constitution prevents double jeopardy. Found innocent of criminal charges, she will remain innocent of them in the future. A poor verdict, in my view, like the OJ trial, but the way the system works.

    I was wondering how they could find her guilty when they couldn't even say for sure how the child died. What a shame that the authorities didn't follow up when the man first reported spotting the body...then there would have hopefully been enough physical evidence to determine the manner of death - and fairly certain it would have pointed to her mother. Poor little baby will never have justice! icon_cry.gif

    I get really uncomfortable about how quickly and easily people decide other people's fates. We werent there, we weren't in theirshoes who knows how we would react. Situations and circumstances can really change how people act or what happens. Im not arguing if she's guilty or not just observing how people handle these things. I don't like how exposed these things are. This woman is a pariah now because of the morbid fascination we as a society hold for these types of things.

    Amen to that. And here's the smackdown, for those that like it in ways they may understand:

    Well, riding around in your car and partying, while your dead daughter is rotting in your car trunk, is kinda the definition of morbid, would you not agree?

    Can I point out that nobody who wasn't on the jury actually KNOWS what evidence was presented? You may have opinions, but everything you know about the case is filtered through the reporting of the case and the evidence which the media chooses to give you.

    Nobody ever knows the whole story. Think of this way,... if the jury came to this conclusion, is it POSSIBLE that they know something you dont know? That the demeanor of the witnesses was a factor? That the non-verbal communication of the parties played into it?

    I have tried over 180 cases to a jury verdict and most of the time, the jury gets it right. Even when I have LOST i thought to myself, "I dont like it, but I understand what they did." I can think of maybe 5 cases in which it made no sense.

    There is more to this story. I will defend the jury more than their verdict. I dont have enough information to comment on the verdict.

    Why the heck was the defense arguing that Casey Anthony loved her daughter and would never kill her child yet the biotch waited 31 freaking days to say anything about her child's DEATH.

    Casey Anthony is clearly screwed up in the head.

    I cannot say with surety that she did or did not kill her child. No one really can. It does seem as though she killed her daughter but the jury saw that there was reasonable doubt present and found her not guilty. Not entirely innocent, just not guilty. It is quite possible that she got off with murder, but this could not be proved.

    It's all quite equivocal, but I can't help but feel sad and disappointed about the outcome of this case...

    Precisely. If you have not read the transcript of the trial, you are not really qualified to comment on the rights or wrongs of the verdict.

    The best thing the public can do to avenge the death of Caylee is not support a movie or a book deal. Don't buy, don't watch.

    I know this was going to be the outcome. Like I said yesterday, There was NO evidence linking Casey to the murder of Caylee-Marie. Not. A single. One.

    If you're feeling disgusted by the verdict. You have two options: Get over it or live with it.

    There was not a single piece of evidence that could be use against her in a conviction.
