I don't watch CSI and I am well aware that the type of forensics on those shows is far from the reality.

What would have made me say yes? No reasonable doubt. Let me emphasize the word "reasonable." A cause of death would have been helpful.

Seeing the truth AS IT IS isn't being biased or spoon fed. It's having the common sense of looking at the actions that took place.

I don't blame the jury. They did the best with what they apparently had....realizing they did not see and hear even all the courtroom stuff we did. But for people to say that she has been proven innocent is a bunch of crap.
I didn't say she is innocent. I'm pointing to the bogus "psychological profiles" of this woman being put out there by lay people who don't have any training, experience, or education in diagnosing people.

If no one will hire her and no one will pay for her story, she lives her life broke. We have the power to punish without committing a crime. You can refuse to hire someone who was convicted of a felony and she was.

IMO, what we should do is pretend she doesn't exist. Don't listen to her story and let publishers know that if they pay her to publish a book or article, we will boycott their publications. At least, we can make sure she does not profit from her crimes.

All of the evidence was circumstantial because Caylee's remains were nothing but bones. The prosecutors gave everything to the jury they had. I'm interested in why you think it was an accident as you mentioned in an earlier post. There's no evidence to that either. The police did the best they could; the prosecutors did the best they could with what they had. It wasn't enough for the jury, which is the basis for our justice system.

THINK about Ashton's statement. It is not as logical and reasonable as you think.

A local lawyer just stated on the radio that he believes that Casey is already set free and that this is a way to let her out jail without any issues....I don't want to believe this but you never know....

Belvin Perry would never be a part of that in my opinion.But I do think she will be released under cover of darkness on the 17th from another correctional location!

Let's wait and see....at this point we can expect anything and we already had the biggest shocker of 2011 up to date.

when I see this pic, I think she didn't do it:
http://www.jillstanek.com/wp/wp-cont...83110_03_1.jpg

because they have all these negative pics of her all over the web, such as her making out with a girl, a guy grabbing her breast, and her dressing slutty... but her character doesn't foretell if she killed her daughter, yet she did party after her daughter went missing... There's also many unanswered questions about her case...

Overall, I hope people will leave her alone and not bother her, but instead help her rebuild her life into becoming a better person.
