Who??? Who does that but someone that has plenty to hide and also someone that has a daughter missing??? She killed her or had something to do with it. This is outrageous to me!

I feel like Scott Peterson got convicted on lesser evidence in Lacy's murder.

The jurors failed.
Good thought!

The jury system in this country is highly flawed and quite possibly, broken. The reality is you can have very dumb people serve on a jury. And with 12 people all needing to come to the same conclusion, you are bound to have people with "big" personalities play a significant role in the verdict.

Below are quotes from one of the jurors in the first OJ trial:

Asked by a reporter who the murderer was, Moran said, I cant speculate on that ... I know O.J. Simpson didnt do it.


-She knows? She knows for certain? Really?



She said it was a waste of time for the prosecution to try to build a case around the history of domestic violence in Simpsons marriage to Nicole. This was a murder trial, not a trial about domestic abuse, she said.


-Yes, sure, waste of time...people who abuse their wives NEVER murder them, right? Oh wait, they do? Fairly regularly? Oh, sorry...

Moran described other key aspects of the case that led jurors to acquittal. One was detective Philip Vannatters testimony that he did not consider Simpson a suspect the first time he went to his home.

This was somehow more significant than DNA evidence?

As for the glove found behind Simpsons estate, she said someone planted it.

-Oh. Is that right? Who?

Moran said each juror considered the evidence in the case throughout the trial, and thats why it took them less than four hours to agree on a verdict. It didnt take us nine more months to figure it out.Were not that ignorant, she said.

So you're ignorant, but not THAT ignorant. Actually, you are that ignorant.

My point is, the jury system is flawed. I'm curious to see how this girl lives her life from her on out. How does she live with the fact that she murdered her daughter?

I wonder if all of the jury members will sleep well not only tonight but all the future tonights.

Perhaps it will be like OJ - took time but he was nailed on something else, and frankly, I believe, as I suspect many others do as well.....one of the reasons OJ was convicted in LV and the charges/sentence was to reap what did not happen to him with his wife and Ron.

I think that Casey Anthony will stay sort of low-key for awhile, I think she will be afraid to go out and be seen and recognized for awhile, and perhaps even be a tad humble-appearing; however, down the road, she will view this episode in her life as perhaps a 'hiccup' and will do something else, presuming, once again, she will not have to be held accountable for anything.

I hope she does NOT get credit for time served and be able to walk out of prison a completely free woman. I have, at least somewhat, some faith left in the judge and perhaps he will, if even for another year or two, hold her accountable for her constant lying to law enforcement.

Oh brother!
Just like it wasn't the last the world had heard of Joran van der sloot (sp?) when, five years after Holloway disappeared, he murdered a woman in Peru, this isn't the last we have heard of Casey Anthony. That is the way it is with sociopaths.

Agreed. I do think we will hear of her again when she does something else like this. AGAIN.

Thank you!!!

I was just thinking the same thing. Had they have gotten Van Der Sloot then, that Peruvian woman would be alive today. But they screwed up.

And I would NEVER be accused of a crime that I didn't commit because I WOULD NOT EVEN CONSIDER DOING A CRIME SUCH AS KILLING MY CHILD!
Of course you wouldn't think of doing such a thing - hope what I wrote in no way insinuated that, lol!!!!!

But folks do find themselves accused of stuff that didn't do - especially if something happens to a family member. My point is not that we commit crimes and then try to get out of them - my point is - any of us could end up in a situation where something occurred (even things at work!) and we get blamed for something we had no involvement with - or we get the finger pointed at us b/c of something circumstantial.

I think Casey is mentally ill. I hope she gets the help she needs.

Stunned. Utterly.

I saw absolutely none of the media circus around this case. I only started paying attention when the trial started, and I watched the entire trial, and viewed at least 90% of the evidence that was available. I still think the cause of death could not be proved and therefore could not be judged, but I thought that the circumstantial evidence certainly was strong enough to prove that Casey was the cause of Caylee's death.

Never, never expected this.
