Skip to comments.Why Casey Anthony Was Acquitted (Key Word: JURY)

A good read... ...but if you don't want to, DON'T.
Perhaps you could introduce her to a new invention: the book. It does however required user intervention: you have to turn the pages.
Seems obvious, doesn’t it?
OK, I can buy the not proving Casey murdered Caylee, but to say it wasn’t a murder at all? WTF? 2 year olds don’t put themselves into garbage bags and throw themselves into shallow graves. It certainly WAS a murder. And Casey knows who did it. BTW, who is the father of Caylee? I saw a “fiancee” mentioned, but never a mention of the father of the toddler, who he is, what he does, where he is, etc.
It seems Judge Perry has the final say. For example, the prosecution tried several times to dismiss Juror #4 based on her statement that she didn't want to judge anyone. The defense fought hard to keep her.
Judge Perry ruled for the defense, based on the Batson rule, which states that someone can't be dismissed based on race alone.
It had nothing to do with race! She didn't want to judge anyone and a trial is ALL about judging defendants and witnesses! Bad decision especially for the prosecution. I've heard this wasn't the only juror the prosecution wanted to strike using one of their 10 exemptions but Judge Perry wouldn't allow it.
Was Levin a defense lawyer?
truthkeeper; this is downright spooky.
Not only did HH judge Perry taint the jury by over riding the states right to strike 10 jurors of their choice, but he also calculated slutmom’s time served using time that was already used for the stolen check charges.
Why no outrage at this injustice? Why does the judge get a pass given these discretionary blunders?
ALL the lawyers said that they didn’t prove their case.....I TOTALLY disagree.....Common sense should have trumped everything.
Article good, comments to follow are very bad. Stupid libs - just like the juries the article criticizes.
..Levin did not keep up with this trial or anything of the previous 3 years...
...I didn't keep it up with it 24/7 even though it's been on our news 24/7 for a long time....
..but even the little I tuned in the last few weeks....
.....it was obvious to me she did it...
..and I believe O'Reilly had a survey of 100, 000 people and 90 percent said she did it.
Levin thought he had to comment it on it, I guess....
....but that doesn't make his opinon count more than others.
The link has been pulled.
Good morning....this was put up too late for me last night.
There are so many aggravating/irritating things about this whole mess but I add to it the remarks by that creep Mason that the jury saw the whole trial and the rest of us didn’t. Therefore, they were in a better position to make the call as to guilty/not guilty.
Is he so stupid that he doesn’t realize that we got to see MORE of what went on in the courtroom because the jury was sent out so many times? I know the stations broke for commercials during the majority of these times but we still saw more than the jury did. We got information the jury was never allowed to see/hear.
And pukey Geraldo seems to be getting a kick out of sticking his finger in our eye each time he appears on TV! His own wife is disgusted with him - HA! Hoorah for Kimberly Gilfoyle - she can outshout him!!!!
I don’t know the cure for a verdict like this but something needs to be changed in the whole system. Everyone is entitled to a “defense” according to our constitution but do defense attorneys have the right to twist things to the point that they can get their “guilty” clients off? They can stand up and say, “I know my client isn’t guilty” and then proceed to lay out a preposterous defense. There should be some restrictions on their presentations. Why are they so FOND of defending and clearing dirtbags?
We need defense attorneys like Dustin Hoffman in “Sleepers”.
If any of us ever find ourselves hauled into court for ANYTHING, hire an attorney who will put forth the most ridiculous and absurd defense and we too can be judged “not guilty.”
Someone I know (...) was molested by her father.
This did do some serious damage to her concept of men in general, and husbands in particular. However, when she kidnapped her children (the first time), she wound up living with - drum roll... - her father, and the mother who enabled said abuse.
Afterward, she lived with a few men who appeared to not be interested in women, married at least one, probably to help with his otherwise illegal status. Kidnapped the children a second time, and was granted full blessings by the court (which proceeded to charge her children’s father back child support for the years she hid the children or left them in his care).
If you expect people, or courts, to make the obvious decisions, the world can have some nasty surprises in store.
Mason....is an idiot. Giving folks the finger? really, classy, mason.
AS for Mark Levin...and his cohort Hannity, well....they were so busy with politics that this little murder case was beneath them...then they decide to comment when they know little of the facts.
Leading me to Geraldo.....who bonded with another Latino lawyer....therefore placing himself squarely on the side of the defendant.....his shallow little mind is all about race, but I digress.
I am still outraged about the verdict, but what does this teach us? Jurors will not even debate the case running so fast for the door that they let a murderer walk. Now Eric Holder and Obama bring the latest captured terrorist here to America for one of our trials?
Those idiots who are too sophisticated to watch the Casey Anthony trial have no idea what they have just unleashed. It scares the heck out of me.
He was completely correct. This is not the fault of the jury. This is the fault of the prosecution. They should have never gone for Murder 1 or Aggravated Murder. There was no evidence of premeditation and no evidence of aggravated assault - none. The cause of death was never determined. THAT is the kicker. If you don't know the cause of death, you can't call it murder. It really is that simple.
Maybe if they had taken the death penalty off or even gone for just manslaughter there would have been “guilty” for some charge
Had something to do with a website showing two families living adjacent to each other off of Hope Springs where Caylees remains were found. The two families live next door to each other. What is interesting is one family goes by the first name of Caylees nanny while the other family next door goes by the last name of Caylees nanny.
The reason they are bringing this up is a jailhouse conversation between Casey and her brother Lee. They believe Casey was giving clues to Lee where Caylee is.
I believe the website is sacred moneys. Don’t know anything about it. Have no idea if true; but it is spooky.
Wonder how they convicted Scott Peterson with circumstantial evidence?
You’re so right!
