Nothing could be further from the truth. The prosecution didnt fail to make their case, they had an excellent case against casey anthony. That said, the jury didnt see it that way and that is something we all must accept and live with.

Scary, that a person that deprved is walking on the streets. The scale is on depravity.org. Creepy that 12 people did not recognize that.
There was no proof that she "smothered" her with duct tape. That is speculation.

We have to accept that but part of accepting that is working through the denial stage of grief (people are grieving for a little girl for whom there will never be justice). It'll die down in time and Casey Anthony will go on to live a normal life just like other released child killers have done (think Mary Bell).

We just really don't like child killers. I don't know why given that it's legal to kill a child before it's born. You'd think we'd be softer on child killers given, as a society, we don't value the lives of the very young. Just an oddity about our society I guess. We're not very consistent.
She was charged with aggravated manslaughter. To prove that the prosecution must prove:

(1) that the defendant caused (insert victim's name) death, and
(2) that the defendant did so recklessly, and
(3) that the defendant did so under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to human life.

NO ONE can say how Caylee died. The defense said that she went outside and drowned in the pool. IF that were the case, Casey did not CAUSE that death. IF that were the case, they cannot say that Casey had anything to do with her child being in the pool, ie: she did not put here there or know she was there and walked off or anything like that. In fact, the prosecution laughed at the idea of a drowning and did not explore it.

That would be one of the reasons why they voted "not guilty" on that for the simple fact that NO ONE could prove how Caylee died.

Do I believe the drowning story? No. Do I know how Caylee died? No. Does anyone know how Caylee died? NO, except, of course, Casey. Therefore, the jury could not find her guilty of aggravated manslaughter.

The jury was sequestered and they all became friends over-time and thus didn't want to offend one another or 'go against' a fellow juror. Instead they all collectively acted as a weak-minded, unified single-thinking group. The jurors were not only weak-minded but also obviously unintelligent as well as ignorant. Lastly, the jurors were anxious to get back to their lives and their families right away and failed to use logical and reasonable-thinking skills to come to a correct decision. This particular [juror] scenario made for a quick, unintelligent, ignorant, shocking and incorrect 'not guilty' verdict...and a child killer mother walks free. Karma will get this scumbag, lying murderer who killed her beautiful baby daughter and threw her away like trash in a roadside swamp.

I hope the jurors will come to recognize how wrong they were, and what an injustice they did, to collectively agree to a 'not guilty' verdict. It should be clear to the jurors that for every one legal expert that agrees with their 'not guilty' verdict there are thousands that were totally shocked. Those jurors may have served their civic duty but failed miserably because of their weak-mindedness, low intelligence and ignorance. I hope they all have an upset stomach, heartburn and brain-aches for a long, long time.

-an unreported missing child
-a serial liar suspect
-a mother that partys hardy while she knew her child was dead/missing
-a story about a child that was left unattended with access to a pool and no call after being discoverd to 911, which would at least have made her guilty of neglect and manslaughter (if one chooses to believe that story.)
-a mother that obstructs a comprehensive search for her child
-chloroform
-a foul smelling trunk
...and so on and so on.

This is in no way remotely like the Salem Witch Trials.
And the jury believed that George Anthony was the suspicious one!!!

To all of you "The jury has spoken" people, you better hope you are not the next George Anthony!
Try getting a job or even a friend after the whole world thinks you are a child molester.

No, justice was not served. The "dum dum jury" just threw the blame on an innocent person.

Aggravated Manslaughter of a Child: At the very least, the case has been made for that charge. Even if Caylee died in the pool as defense claims, then Casey obviously failed to provide Caylee with the care, supervision and services necessary to maintain her health and/or failed to protect Caylee from abuse or neglect by another person.

Let's say the defense scenario is true -- if Casey left Caylee unsupervised in a home with doors unlocked to the patio and a ladder in the pool (the pool she knew Caylee loved so much), she is culpably negligent for having exposed Caylee to a potentially deadly situation.

I would also argue that she's culpably negligent for not having called 911 to try to have a professional medical person revive Caylee.

You don't put duct tape on a child's face because the child accidentally died and duct tape doesn't accidentally end up on a child's face.

That no attempt was made to save the child is telling. I pray she is unable to have another child.

If she drowned in the pool, it's because no one was watching her. That is negligence.

Exactly right! These are points that have been making in previous posts. The CA symapthizers or "The jury has spoken...so just shut up about it" crowd, just do not get it. There are countless cases of parents being held accountable for their child's "accidental" death due to neglect. This woman was let off virually scott free of any reponsibility of the life and death of her baby. These jurors were the peers of morons.
