Posted on 07/27/2011 6:14:28 AM PDT by truthkeeper
ORLANDO, Fla. The names of jurors who served during Casey Anthonys first-degree murder trial will remain secret until October, according to a ruling Tuesday by Chief Judge Belvin Perry.
Ordinarily, juror names become public in Florida once a verdict is rendered.
Perrys 12-page ruling said the names of 14 of the 17 jurors will remain private until Oct. 25. Several jurors already have stepped forward and spoken to the media, at least one under condition of anonymity.
In June, Perry entered an order barring the release of the jurors names "until further order of this court."

polygraphs are a joke. about as valid as phrenology
I believe the jurors as demonstated by their vote of not guilty were only thinking about one side of the issue; therefore probably didn’t realize the backlash they were creating. Because of their inability to think and/or use common sense; they did not realize there would be consequences to their actions.
Some of these jurors probably watch all the tv crime shows and think they are experts on interpreting evidence. Sure the Prosecution screwed up but it does not explain away how Caylee was missing for a month before it was reported to the police and found with with duct tape on her nose and mouth. Didn’t they bother to ask what happened? Who did this?
I know. That duct tape and missing for 31 days is pretty hard to explain; especially when the mother has admitted her daughter has been missing for 31 days. It’s a pretty good bet Casey did this since she is the one who had access to her daughter.
I immediately wonder about the intelligence of people who say they never follow the news and know nothing about cases that have been reported on for months or even years. Is it actually desirable to have people this dumb on juries?
A sad state of affairs, IMO.
It’s more than a good bet, it’s a slam dunk. The defense theory put forth without any evidence, makes zero sense. Why hide an accident? Why would slutmom DELETE her incriminating searches for neck breaking, etc? Why would she have claimed to have spoken to her daughter shortly before the 911 call? Why obstruct the police? Why was Larry Mokirlyjo put in charge of the jury? Why was the woman juror who did come forward twice held back from second grade? OK I made that last one up. There was no evidence she was held back from second grade a second time.
What would be wrong with states, or maybe even localities, requiring potential jurors to take a minimum competency test? They would still be a jury of peers in that slutmom was a cunning liar.
Competency test? Not a good idea. You can cure ignorance; but not stupid.
Yes it is a sad state of affairs. I am sure some if not all heard about this case way before they became jurors; especially Ms. Goldilocks(Juror 3). This kind of person was what the defense was looking for and they got it in spades. I am curious as to why the judge kept allowing them to be on the jury. The prosecution from what I understand did everything they could to keep at least some of them off. They were definitely not a well balanced jury. I am also curious as to understand why at least one did not protest.
It also bothers me that there was a mock jury and they came up with the same results.
Who is this person? (I'll ask you first before I google.)
Why was the woman juror who did come forward twice held back from second grade? OK I made that last one up. There was no evidence she was held back from second grade a second time.
LOL...I needed that.
What would be wrong with states, or maybe even localities, requiring potential jurors to take a minimum competency test?
I'm with you. At the very LEAST a reading comprehension test, and maybe a little basic science and math. When I was in 8th grade we had to pass a Constitution test to be promoted, would it be asking too much for juries to at least have this much competence? If not, someone show me where it would be unconstitutional.
BTW, loved your whole post.
Oh, never mind. I just now saw your tagline. LOL...I'll bet they "got deliberated" too!
I know people who claim they don’t read the newspapers or watch the evening news. They know nothing about news, politics or their own communities. God help us all!
They all read some part of the news and newspapers internet or traditional.
Maybe they just read the sports pages, celebrity gossip, the funnies and horoscopes.
I know people like that too. Worse yet, I know people who watch MSNBC & CNN. They don't know anything either, although they think they know it all.
“I know people who watch MSNBC & CNN. They don’t know anything either, although they think they know it all.”
Those are the most dangerous type of juror. When I was waiting in the Jury Assembly room in my town I overheard a guy talking to a friend of his. He said, “I am not going to find anyone guilty. I don’t want to send anyone to jail.” My first thought was to turn around and spit him in the face, but I didn’t want to get into trouble. I wonder if Casey Anthony had any of those types on her jury?
