I don't know if I'd call myself a Casey supporter but I hope that the sentence will be similar to others convicted under the same statute.

That depends on what you mean by reasonable. If by reasonable you mean prudent, moral, or wise then hiding a body is not that.

When I say reasonable I just mean that there are concrete reasons someone would do that other than to hide a murder, such as hiding an accidental death as a result of neglect or carelessness.

He reminds me of an old home improvement salesman, the customers would say, we had cheaper bids, we know we paid to much but we liked the guy.
The side that had to do the selling was the prosecution. Baez just needed to describe the ins and outs. Needless to say the prosection didnt sell it.

My post made since before the moderators combined a thread about Nancy Grace into this one. Someone said they thought her head was gonna explode.

Now there are around 10 threads around Casey Anthony. Why not just go ahead and make one huge mega-thread again so half of the responses make no sense again? Nothing like looking through 2000 posts to make a relevant comment on one.

Why haven't I seen any of you people that agree with the (Casey Anthony) jury, because it lacked proof, say anything about this trial. Why not?

Guilty murder verdict based on absolutely NO evidence proving the victim was even dead, and NO evidence whatsoever that the person found guilty of murder had harmed the victim.

I somehow doubt that everyone of us has a catalog of court cases stored in our head, and how is this one relevant anyways?

The Jury didn't see the forest because the trees were in the way. The jury convicted Casey lying about the location of her daughter to the police but never thought of the WHY Casey lied . The WHY IS simply because Caylee did not exist anymore in the world as a live person. Casey knew that Caylee was dead in the muck down the street from her home.

This jury never considered the reason why Casey lied continuously about the location of her daughter . They just looked very shallowly the fact Casey lied to the police and never even considered the motivation and reason of Casey's lyiing to the police to conceal that she had killed her daughter.

It is a travestly to even listen to the lies that Casey said to the police which conclusively points to Casey's guilt in leading the police on a wild goose chase to find her daughter.

Myself I believe Casey did kill Caylee, I don't know if it was an accident I did not hear any evidence during the trial to tell me anything about that besides the defense opening statement. I believe with all my heart and soul that the entire family KNOWS what happened. That being said..............
The jury followed jury instructions to the tea, or so they say, and if they followed the instructions given by the Judge and still came to the conclusing that she was not guilty of the counts than American must respect that. I would hate to be called to jury trial in a death penality case, I wish Casey had been found guilty of neglect to Caylee at least but I accept the decision because I do not know what was in the jury instructions.
I don't like it, dislike a person like Casey and thank God everyday for my wonderful children, but I cannot wish death upon a person just because we have found Casey guilty outside of the courtroom.
Do I think someday Casey will have an "accident" and end up suffering from that accident, yes I do believe public hatred will at least attempt this senerio. In the end God is the only judgment she needs to have, at least in my mind, she will suffer in the end.

It's rather common really - people are tried and sucessfully convicted of murder without bodies, without direct evidence, without cause of death, quite frequently.

"Proof" is subjective. Obviously this jury had different thoughts on what reasonable doubt is. Perhaps the "CSI effect" has something to do with it (has that been discussed here yet)?

What I don't understand are posters saying "I think she killed her child, but I don't think it was proven". The comment is contradictory. If you think she killed her child - then it was proven, at least to you.

The problem here is that you are under the false assumption that someone would only hide a body because they were trying to cover up a murder. That is not the case and hence the jury would not convict her on that fact alone, even if it was proven that Casey was the one who dumped the body.
