Attn: FReepers! Please Donít Blame Orlando For The Casey Anthony Verdict. It Wasnít Our Jury!
MB26

Posted on 07/05/2011 5:49:45 PM PDT by MindBender26

Please do not blame Orlando for the Casey Anthony verdict. Had locals been given a choice, she would convicted overwhelmingly! But we did not get to supply the jurors. They were from Pinellas County, 100 miles and 100 years west of Central Florida. Pinellas County is mostly low class retirees in St. Petersburg, knuckle-dragging cretins in Pinellas Park and the denizens of Scientology World Headquarters in Clearwater. The average IQ in Highpoint and Safety Harbor is less than the air temperature on ays when we wory about the citrus crop freezing.

I grew up there, escaped, and recognize there are a few intelligent people there such as Pinellas County FReepers, (but not former governor Charlie Crist from St. Pete. BTW, Crist, the Gay Blade, has now joined the biggest ambulance chasing firm in the State, and his show “wife” hasn’t been seen with him in years.)

So please, when you think about the all-but-convicted murderess going free here, don’t blame us. BTW, I know Judge Perry well, and he is a VERY good guy. Don’t blame him or us for the jury’s idiocy.

Actually the moral to this story is if you get a jury summons GO TO JURY DUTY!! Why, because they interviewed a woman outside the courthouse who got a jury summons to most likely appear for this jury but did not go..she wiggled her way out of it..she said she would have convicted Casey had she been on that jury..so bottom line is, if people want to see justice served, don’t rely on idiots who end up on juries, go on the jury yourself and make a difference

Imo it'll be much rougher for her on the outside.
In prison she would've been segregated and protected.

Do you want Orlando held culpable for what would have been a BAD verdict otherwise? The actual Jury did a great job. They ignored the MOB.

I am sick of mobs and mob-frenzy “justice”!

It’s true. My mom always said that half the cases in the US were decided by leftists because conservatives ran businesses or had essential jobs. Meanwhile retirees, unemployeds, and people with union jobs were most able to sit jury duty.

However I DO know some intelligent people in Palm Harbor.

“Does this really need it’s own thread?”

Yes.

I can understand that Orlando wants cleared of this, and wants it known. A new thread works. We needed one.

You have to look at it this way, who would actually enjoy being on a sequestered jury, be away from their families for months and have no contact with them? No one forced these jurors to show up and be part of this..they came to court knowing there was a chance they would be on this jury..you see your usual Government workers, the ones with criminal records and family members with criminal records, and the ones who didn’t pass the 11th grade..these are the jurors we are left with here..the ones who go YIPPEE I will get 5 bucks a day and a book deal. these are the ones you see ending up on high profile cases like this one

Disgusting. What you and she both are calling for is lynch mob justice. You'd demand that she hold to her lynch-mob prejudgment despite any argument, testimony or evidence she'd hear in the court.

Thank G-d she DID skip out of Jury duty and I repeat: HOORAY FOR THE ACTUAL JURY!

I asked a question. That's all.

However since you brought it up, a lot of people have a lot of comments and important points to make about big news like this. We usually take our turn and post in an existing discussion. If everyone were to start a new topic with their own specific point that they feel is more important than all the others, then this site would be really cluttered and really hard to navigate. Just sayin.

If what you say is true, then we need to credit the wise people of Pinellas County who are obviously much better citizens than the people of Orlando.

I don’t have a dog in this race, but from the comments I’ve read here, it’s the prosecutors who failed (just like in the O.J. case), otherwise, we have the best judicial system on the planet.

I’ve been on two juries this year, and I’m pretty certain it’s the jurors, and the effed up judicial system, and with the like of Nifong, Spitzer, and Cyrus Vance, Jr, in it, whadya expect?!

Actually, I think this jury debacle descerates all hopes and any basis for circumstantial trials altogether in the future. The public is now so dumbed down as to require video of the crime in motion, with the perpetrator standing over the body in a forward motion of attack, preferably with audio included.

No one “gets” circumstantial evidence. It’s a miracle but an intellegent jury did take care of Scott Peterson, but it’s about to get more rare. A very bad jury has aided and abetted a person who is responsible for the death of a toddler.

I know the media (HLN) hyped this whole thing for ratings, and were weighted 97% against Casey from the beginning, but not entirely without good reason and plenty of investigation of their own. Such bias does probably hurt a trial in the same way televised events sway a television audience.

Strictly speaking, it was probably the correct verdict.

Casey Anthony was a party-girl, who hated the responsibility of motherhood. When she went out to party, she’d knock the kid out. She probably thought it was the perfect compromise, and cheap because she wouldn’t even have to pay for a babysitter.

If the prosecution had charged her with something that she’d serve 20 years, Casey probably would have been convicted.

Orlandos prosecutors, law enforcement etc who compiled an prepared an presented the case.....are at fault.

No places or communities fault. Comedy of errors where a small child an the taxpayers paid the price.

...Please do not blame Orlando for the Casey Anthony verdict...

But you CAN blame the Orange County Sheriffs Department for not following up on early leads on the location of the child's body. Had they done so, there might have been more forensic evidence available. But they didn't and the body lay in a swamp for many months longer and decomposed further.

Your absolutely right..we now live in a society where in order to convict someone of murder you need a camcorder..if Casey ever kills again someone better bring a camcorder to tape it otherwise no one will believe it. Circumstantial cases are decided every single day, no media attention, no cameras in the courtroom, and they are convicted every single day. Hey considering what happened today I am SHOCKED that Scott Peterson was found guilty, especially in my liberal state..I am shocked he did not walk, he, after all is so darn cute why would anyone think he is a murderer.
Some people keep on talking about “Mob rules” PLEASE, no mob was after Casey Anthony..no one had pitch forks asking for her hanging, people had opinions on this case, yes, but no one is outside yelling in the streets for her execution.
We live in a CSI Miami world, people want video evidence in order to believe someone is guilty of murder. If Charlie Manson had been accused of today what he was convicted of back then he probably would have walked..same with Diane Downs, hey she claimed she was abused by daddy too

Hooray for the actual jury? Really?? Casey placed herself at the scene of death but the jury rejected her version of events. That means they concluded she killed the child, just not when she admits to the death occurring. Acquittal was caused by the jurors inability to reason.

I never get picked. Most recently I got summoned for June last year, but got rescheduled due to a conflict of schedule with being a delegate to the 2010 Texas GOP Convention. Unfortunately my father suddenly died in early July and I couldn't reschedule jury duty a week after the burial service. I got put into a large jury for some scum who molested a 6 year old girl. I really wasn't emotionally up to serving on a jury at that time and got dismissed.

As a white male living in California I am have been blamed by the right and the left for every problem in the world. The right, (FR especially ) lumps me in with every freak in San Francisco and every stupid thing they do. I have learned to deal with this stupidity. Blame is rarely built on fact any attempt to use facts will just feed the flames of stupidity. A radio guy out here said that the only solace he could find in the verdict that California wasn’t alone in having stupid juries. I still haven’t decided if I will choose to blame you, but I am willing to take bribes.

Emotional FReepers and the MSM agree today. Sad.

The lesser charges you spoke of were in the indictment. They were availed to the jury. The jury chose, instead, the popcorn soap opera of the family disfunction over the circumstantial evidence they were did not understand. They identified with the soap opera entirely and must have skipped every science class they ever had, which left them closed to the obvious. (In my humble opinion.) :)

If I had to bet, I'd bet that's exactly what happened.

But, of course, justice is not about bets, it's about facts. And the fact is Casey Anthony went 30 days without reporting her child missing.

If you believe she did not kill the child, then someone else took her. The first few days would have been critical. But Casey did nothing. She should have been convicted of criminal negligence at the least.
