'She is a good mother... we were right' Juror defends shock acquittal of Casey Anthony
Daily Mail ^ | July 6, 2011 | John Stevens

Posted on 07/06/2011 1:58:31 PM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

An alternate juror in the Casey Anthony trials has said that he believes that Anthony was a good mother and that two-year-old Caylee’s death was just a horrific accident.

The sensational acquittal of Casey Anthony sparked outrage across the U.S. as angry spectators compared the trial’s outcome to the infamous verdict in the OJ Simpson case.

But Russell Huekler, one of five alternate jurors who were present for all the testimony and were sequestered with the 12 other jurors, said he would have given the same verdict and is stunned by the public anger.

She choloformed her BEFORE she put DUCT TAPE on her, therefore little CAYLEE was rendered helpless to take that tape off.

Reason she put DUCT TAPE on her, so she would NOT have to look at her face, less it convict her of what she did. She wrapped her in the blanket, into 2 TRASH BAGS and then the Laundry bags, all coming from her home, as proven by the State. Then she THREW that bag into a SWAMP.

The family confessed they NEVER even threw their dead dogs in a SWAMP to bury.

31 DAYS she PARTIED LIKE A SLUT, and LIED about where CAYLEE was, taking them down one rabbit hole after another. They gave the opportunity to tell them if it was an accident, she refused that. Now come to Trial and claim it was an accident, and she was willing to spend 3 years in jail for an accident??? Really??

Anyone thinking she is innocent, should have to take her into their homes to be their NANNY.

I can understand a juror concluding there wasn’t enough evidence to convict beyond a reasonable doubt. But to call this woman a good mother??? Unbelievable.

Yes, the alternate juror pretty well summed it up. Those pictures . . . she had to be a good mother.

Is this naivete or stupidity? When’s the last time any of us saw photos of child-abuse-in-action? Isn’t that cause for a page in the album? No? Well, then, it must never happen.

Exactly. It may prove that no on on the jury knew what a good mother is! A very sad commentary, isn’t it?

THIS IDIOT JURY would have found CAIN innocent of killing his brother ABEL. No evidence.

Funny how GOD made the decision and punished CAIN.

“I have no idea why anyone would put Duct Tape on a dead child. But it was not proven anyone did.”

Uh, there was duct tape on a dead child. That is beyond any doubt. What had to be REASONABLY asked is “Why would a dead child, bound up in plastic and thrown into the woods, have duct tape on it’s head?

TO answer that question, you have to ask and answer several COMMON SENSE questions. The ONLY answer that you arrive at is that the child was killed, whetherintentionally or unintentionally. For any juror to arrive at the conclusion that the child died accidently is asinine.

IF the child died in the swiming pool completely accidently, why was the child bound and dumped? There is NO REASONABLE explanation for that, and the defense provided no explanation. THe prosection provided the most reasonable answer - The child was killed. It doesn’t matter by who or how, but the child was killed.

You establish that fact and continue deliberating.

Exactly. The fear that chills your heart when a little one is out of your sight for a moment in a public place... A mother who can party for a MONTH is not oncerned about her child. And probably knows she is not in trouble (but far past it).

The chloroform was an anesthetic (caring mother that Casey was) and a sleep-inducer. The idea, in all likelihood, was to tape Caylee up after she got to sleep, but before she awakened—especially if Casey was still unsure about how how much chloroform to use. No fuss. No mess. No crying, No squirming. What’s so complicated?

Whatever we say, the miscarriage of justice is complete and irreversible.

So no matter what we say, if the murderer is free, then justice has been denied forever.

Take comfort in that if you like.

And if you think we DON’T have the right to comment, or that we are not informed about what evidence has been presented, you couldn’t be more wrong.

How can he give more credibility to the drowning theory when there was absolutely no evidence given to prove that!?

There was far more circumstantial evidence to prove that she did kill her kid. The lying, admitting that she knew the kid was dead the whole time(drowned-not likely) after telling everybody that the nanny took her, that she was still out there, etc., her trunk smelling like a dead body,showing no signs of remorse during the whole 31 days, I could go on and on. There was absolutely no evidence other than what was said from her lying mouth to prove the kid drowned! Yet he is more than happy to buy that theory!

These people were and are complete idiots!

Anyone who deems Casey to be a “good mother” needs their head examined. Case closed.

And this guy represents “the jury.” (an alternate)

You can go on whistling through the fog about the good judgement of the jury, and how we must respect their decisions.

Anyone who respects the decision that Casey was a “good mother” is an idiot.

So let me ask you, do you think Casey was a good mother?

You ask how did little CAYLEE get into those trash bags?

Well, her mother and her defense Attorneys, would have you believe that:

Little Caylee, choloformed herself, she found the DUCT TAPE, put 3 strands on her face, crawled into not One but Two black garbage bags, then put herself into that laundry bag, (all things coming from Casey's home), then put herself into the trunk of Caseys car, (she was the only one who drove that car).

Then after she started STINKING so bad, little Caylee felt so bad about that, she jumped out as MOMMY drove passed by that SWAMP.

Little CAYLEE did all this, just so her mother would not have to babysit her any longer, and mommy could PARTY LIKE HELL.

To answer your question, YES, the STATE proved all the eveidence against Casey in their case. It was all about Casey and the 31 days, plus HER stinking car, which she abandoned. Not telling a soul until found by her parents.

I’m thinking they should instead try these cases on lesser charges or something.

Since you admitted to ignorance let me set you straight and save you from further humiliation. Casey's charges include SEVERAL lesser charges like endangerment and manslaughter. This group of morons found the murdering slut not guilty on all counts except lying to police! Ok, get it now? These people are total imbeciles.

I wonder how we are defining good Moms today? Any woman can pull some pictures or videos of them being kind to their child. Casey partied on for all that time because she knew where her daughter was... she knew she didn’t need a nap, feeding, a diaper change. Justice didn’t happen on earth but it will happen in heaven.

Your friend should read about Alice Crimmins, a case that isn a lot of ways is similar to this one. Happened back in the mid 60’s and took around 12 years to close.

In this case, I disagree with the verdict but I can understand why it was rendered.

Well explain to me how a jury acquitted a parent of aggravated child abuse when the mother did not report her missing to police and the child suffered great bodily harm and ended up wrapped in glad bags and duct tape in a swamp.

My theory is Caylee put duct tape over her mouth, walked into the woods, climbed into the trash bag, and suffocated.

This is where your theory breaks down. Aliens from the planet Zanny abducted Caylee. The Alien from Zanny, code name "Moronbia", was actually a hideous looking creature assigned to Interplanetary Medical Examination Team 12B, but the Zannies have cloaking devices that make them look like heavyset Hispanic women. This Alien's job was to kidnap Caylee and perform medical studies on her, then frame the mother.

As frustrating as the verdict was in the Casey Anthony trial, I don’t think I want to change the system...In this case, I disagree with the verdict but I can understand why it was rendered.

Well said! I agree that changing the system is a very bad idea and surly leads to tyranny. I do agree with the verdict because I think the State did not prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Proving someone may be guilty just don't cut the mustard for me. Especially not in a capital murder case! (Oops, sorry about that! Do over?)

Mob rule? THere are LARGE segements of our country where the people lock the steel grates on their windows and doors at night. EVERYONE locks their doors at night, most with a dead-bolt.

Why? Because there is little deterrent for criminals anymore. The “wonderful spectre of our jury system in action” in this case WILL NOT DETER CRIMINALS.

Commmon sense is dying in this country. People want video tapes, signed confessions and DNA evidence before they will promounce anyone guilty.

Sorry I remind you of the Nazis. But NOT agreeing with what the state wrongly decides is the opposite of fascism. I wish no evil for the jury unless education and sense is an evil. I don’t even wish evil or capital justice (perhaps the same thing) for Casey. But I do believe, desperately, in calling a spade a spade. And this particular spade was anything but justice.

Because the prosecution did not prove that Casey Anthony knew Calee was missing or dead. Yeah, I know. It's ridiculous. Basically, 'getting off on a technicality'

Let's get this straight: I didn't say I agreed with the verdict - I believe that Casey Anthony is guilty of murdering her child. I simply stated that I understand why the jury voted to acquit. No more or less.

If she didn’t want that beautiful child, why didn’t she give her to me?” Of course I thought of Mother Teresa.
Awww, that's so nice. You know when Mother Teresa was giving her prayer breakfast speech in 1994, I was so struck first by the powerful words she used unflinchingly coming from her tiny frame, and next to the politically correct applause she was receiving [in effect she was calling them murderers] afterward by the Clintons, Gore, etc.

You are simply wrong on the facts. The evidence was quite clear that the child was missing for more than a month. In fact the defense admitted that in court. The jurors simply ignored the law, the evidence and common sense where the aggravated abuse statute is concerned. They nullified the aggravated abuse statute just like the OJ jury nullified the murder statute. And the amount of people who are sanguine about that is right out of Kafka.

And btw the case is not closed per se. Your girl slandered a woman who she claimed had her daughter. The chicken will be coming home to roost forthwith.

AS I said earlier, if Casey was in the habit of drugging Caylee with chloroform to enable her to go out and kick up her heels at night, it could have been accident by administering too much chloroform. I doubt Casey has a very high IQ, so perhaps she put the duct tape over Caylee’s nose and mouth to hide the odor of the chloroform. IN NO WAY was Casey a good mother!
