OS ANGELES Legal experts and scientists were quick to issue a verdict of their own following the shocking not guilty decision announced today in the Casey Tot Mom Anthony trial: the 12 jurors who were assigned to the OJ The Juice Simpson case are no longer the 12 dumbest people on the planet.
The Juice, a former NFL star running back and master knife wielder, was found not guilty in the trial of the century in 1995 despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary.
But at least they had an excuse, an ulterior motive, for liberating The Juice, explains Dr. Timothy Miser, a law professor, psychiatrist and talk-show host with the Buckhead Community College in Atlanta.

This was a very tough case to prove, and the prosecution did a very poor job with a very tough case.
It means nothing, as there really was no solid evidence to say what happened.
Now they are part of the 24 dumbest people on earth.
When you get to the point where you think everything short of witnessing the crime yourself is reasonable doubt, you are unreasonably stupid.
I would not have convicted her either based on the evidence. The jury rendered the correct verdict IMO. Someone may look guilty, may even act guilty, but they are innocent until PROVEN guilty, which I don’t believe Ms. Anthony was. The prosecution couldn’t really offer a cause of death or even a legitimate motive. Baez dismantled the prosecution piece by piece. The prosecution didn’t help themselves make the jury think they were serious by openly laughing during Baez’s closing argument.
Wrong, Sisy. The dumbest are you, the prosecutors and the pundits who tried to call this thing from the 20 yard line seats.
We know exactly what happened. Somebody put 3 pieces of duct tape over a baby's mouth and nose, suffocating her, and threw her in a swamp.
The jury was supposed to use the formidable evidence before them, as well as their own common sense and powers of reason, to determine who did it.
They failed miserably.
The prosecution’s theory of how Caylee died was preposterous and beyond speculative. How you seek the DEATH PENALTY based on that is just unbelievable. So there were no witnesses, okay, but please offer SOMETHING believable as to how she died. The duct tape did in the prosecution. It was speculative, and once you allow the jury to question that as being the cause of death, it was over for the prosecution.
I’m through talking to you people. Obviously we did not watch the same trial.
This trial’s biggest indictment is on our assanine “news entertainment”. I was a Prosecutor for 25 years and I can tel you that what you see on the news shows, even those hosted by attorneys, is almost NOTHING like what is going on in the courtroom.
Many people are railing against the jury because they have convicted the Defendant based on a few news highlights plus commentary by people who are not at all interested in informing, but sensationalizing.
She may be guilty. But it’s up to the State to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. Even based on what I saw I was not the least bit surprised by the verdict. Sometimes as a Prosecutor you know you have to prosecute (usually based upon the heinous nature of the crime) but you just don’t have, and can’t get, the evidence that will convict.
The system worked, and that is a good thing.
Weird that everyone thought the defense was amateurish and disastrous and the prosecution exemplary until 2:15 today. Lots of Monday morning quarterbacking.
The prosecution did pretty well with a circumstantial case and there was plenty of evidence. The jury fell for the defense’s mythological pool drowning idea which had absolutely no basis in fact. The jury failed to even consider the case. Pathetic. .
Why would think that the OJ jury has ever thought they were wrong? To assume this would require them to change their minds and I don’t any have.
Right the OJ case was jury nullification due to racial issues. This case was not. The attacks on this jury are vile. They followed the law as given to them.
Right on! Stop the insane mob.
The jury was an ass.
Beautiful. I’m stealing it.
Thank you for that.
The Defendant made no effort to find her "missing" daughter and made materially false statements to invertigators during their attempts to find her. Those statements were not all harmless fabrications, like her claim to have worked somewhere she did not. Several impinged materially on the question of her guilt, and they were not lies that would be told by an innocent person.
