OJ did NOT come down to the "glove didn't fit". It was a whole lot more than that. Too simplistic and incorrect, IMHO.

But, yes, it was a horrible demonstration. Ito influenced the timing, BTW. Goodness, Morgain, you get me started on OJ and we'll be here for months.

Okay. I give up. Just let me say, I think he was guilty. I think that case was lost by the prosecution. Okay. Really, that's all.

The OJ case was lost during the voir dire when they selected that jury.

Hmmm. As DewDropInn said, we could get in a months-long discussion about OJ. The problem is that it has been so long ago, I don't remember many of the details anymore, other than the image of OJ trying to fit his hand into that glove.

Maybe there were 2 or 3 jurors who felt she was guilty and the others wanted to go home. I also would never want to send a person to her death if there was an iota of doubt, and that family really made it difficult to decide. For a crime this serious, they weren't in deliberations for very long. Sometimes it takes days after closing arguments.

I still think she's guilty, however. If your child drowns, you don't wrap her in a bag and bury her. You call 911. Period. I thought throughout the trial that it was odd that nobody saw her abuse her child or even scold her, but maybe she fooled a lot of people. If just one person testified, "She told me she wished Caylee were dead" or "she said she wished Caylee had never been born," it would be different. That was the one tiny bit of doubt I had. Even my parents said it would have been better if I died at birth, but they didn't kill me. So it's odd that there was no evidence proving she was an abusive mother while Caylee was alive.

Well, now what is Nancy Grace going to talk about?
I think Grace can still wring a few more days out of this.

I agree with everything you said. I think she's guilty of something but I just can't be sure of exactly what.....even if she accidentally killed her daughter, there was something very not right about that! And, of course, it would surely be an injustice to send her to death row when there was doubt.

One of those folks on TV said something last night about how it was just too big of a leap for people to go from hearing that she was a good mother from her parents, friends, and boyfriend, to just suddenly go to 'I think I'll Caylee today".............

There was his strange suicide letter were he talked about how bad he felt and how he wanted to "be with Caylee in heaven." He also lied a number of times about having an affair with another woman and telling her that the "whole thing was an accident that snowballed out of control." There was also testimony about how he buried dead pets by putting them in a plastic bag and duct taping the top of it.

So there was a significant amount of evidence that could indicate his involvement. Evidence that was never explained away.
George and the duct tape means nothing. Casey lived in that house and had access to the duct tape. I suspect she used that duct tape the day she backed her car into the garage.

How they buried their pets means nothing. That is how most people bury their pets. They don't buy coffins....they wrap them up in plastic and tape them shut. And, as the prosecution pointed out....when you bury a pet you don't put duct tape over their faces.

The guy that bailed Casey out of jail, with the cowboy hat, he said one of his men had talked to George about the possibility that Casey may have accidently overdosed Caylee with chloroform. THAT is the theory George was probably referring to when he said it was an accident that snowballed out of control.

George lying about the affair......that doesn't taint the rest of his testimony in my opinion. It really had no bearing on the case being heard and his wife was sitting right there. I don't blame him for lying about that under the circumstances.......that is IF he was lying.
