'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.

A coworker of mine saw Good Morning America today, and apparently the first thing Casey is going to do is have another child to “fill the void” since Caylee died. What chance do you think they will find that baby in a swamp?

If the prosecuter had been hispanic and the defense attorney was Joe Smith Jerry rivers would have a different take on Casey Anthony,he’s pathetic. As for the jury I didn’t realize so many inbreds reside 100 miles from orlando.

I thought she was already pregnant? Didn’t she tell a cell mate she was but was waiting for the right tome to announce it?
Anyway who in their right mind would sleep with her?

Both Rush and Levin admitted they had not followed the case closely at all.

Here's a quote directly from Rush's website...a transcript of what he said literally SECONDS before declaring there was NO EVIDENCE presented.

"Finally, they got a verdict in the Casey Anthony trial. Finally, they're gonna announce the verdict at 2:15 this afternoon. (interruption) Am I going to JIP it? We haven't covered a syllable of it yet. Don't give me hand signals. I know every woman in the world is gonna be glued to that verdict. I understand. Kathryn's been watching this. I probably shouldn't admit this. Sitting here right now, I bet I don't know 2% of what this is about, and the 2% that I know I know 'cause I asked Kathryn while she's sitting there watching TV Sunday night. And I'm saying, "They had court on Sunday? They had court? I've never heard of this. Why?"

Then they had court yesterday, and then all last night that's all the cable networks did. And I'm sitting there and, folks, it's not often I don't know something. Sitting here right now, I know nothing about this. I only have the thoughts when I look at the mother. (interruption) Well, 'cause I haven't been interested. I don't know."

(Then they play audio of the verdict)

Then Rush comes back. His delight is in the fact that the "media" got theirs, guilt or innocence be damned:

RUSH: I don't know, folks. I'm taking a gander, a listen at various media analysts on the Casey Anthony "not guilty" verdicts here during the commercial breaks, and I have to tell you, they are livid, they are livid. And I of course, El Rushbo, find great pleasure in them being livid. Now, I've had some people help me out here today 'cause I didn't know anything about this, but I now know that there was no evidence.

NO EVIDENCE???? I was astounded that, first of all, Rush would comment so authoritatively on a subject that he himself admitted he knew nothing about, and that he would stake his reputation on something someone told him (via what, email? IM? phone call?) during the tiny span of time that the verdict was announced.

I love El Rushbo, but was very surprised on his ill-informed declaration.

Yes, but this jury had plenty of ways to charge her for some responsibility for her daughter being found in a swamp down the street from her home. No excuse for their verdict.

My son wandered off when he was 2. This was 18 years ago. I have never forgotten that feeling of utter panic. I am so grateful he was found and unharmed, but there is nothing like that. He was missing for probably less than an hour, but it was the longest of my life. To even contemplate a parent just being so casual about a missing child turns my stomach.
Casey Anthony killed and got away with it. I only pray that she does not get the opportunity to do it again.

Dunno? The jury did not know either. Maybe we did. I am old and I do not think I have been helpful as our society has deteriorated. But I have the will to try and make up for it. It could have been Casey or any other theory. We have a conflict her. Between the 1st amendment. And the 5th and 9th Amendment. The 1st is aiding the modern communications system in inciting mob rule. The 5th and 9th have provided protection of Casey and the rest of us from an overbearing state. No easy answer. Maybe we are guilty and trying to blame anything but ourselves just like this pathetic family.

Good mothers are tigers! she would fall apart if their child was missing. And I don’t doubt they would be capable of killing anyone hurting her child. And she would NEVER drug her child!

I think Casey COULD have thought Caylee was deep asleep because of the chloroform at home until she found her dead from an overdose.

I’m not wanting to go hang the lot of them. It is obvious however, that Casey and her parents know what happened. Lying about where her child was and then waiting 31 days to file a missing person report reeks of a conspiracy. Don’t you think?

I should have known weeks ago this would happen with the jury. I’m on a private email list to discuss a hobby of mine and one of the men on the list kept insisting that Casey was a Wonderful Mother because he had been to a web site featuring dozens of pictures of her and Caylee and “you could just see the love she had for the child in her eyes.”

I guess this same guy missed the partying pics & the testimony of her boyfriend that she spent the majority of her time in bed with (sometimes with Caylee in the same bed!!!!!)

Have you ever been on a jury? My experience is that most of them are idiots. I was on an assault case once, where everyone but me and one other juror, spun off and created their own scenario about what happened. They were ready to convict the guy on that scenario.

I was on a cap murder case. Guy was guilty. Circumstantial evidence is what there was. No videos, no confession, but found guilty. Oh, and the judge allowed me on there even though I went by the crime scene every single day. Thank God, the defense did not use that for appeal.

I must admit I didn’t post on here to get your respect.
Yes, she’s a citizen. Yes so are the jurors. Yes, she has been acquitted and can run free and all that. Doesn’t mean she isn’t a killer. Doesn’t mean the jurors weren’t all numb nuts. You are so up on defending her. Why can’t you or won’t you defend her 2 year old daughter who seems to have been killed by no one or anything? Yes I am aware that when she stands before God she can’t hide and will get what is her due.
I just hate that until then no justice for Caylee. She will make tons of money on her deceased daughter. Oh well.. good for her I suppose.

The Duct Tape suffocated her because it cut off air.

Simply put, yes.

Partier Casey needed to have her 2 year old be quiet and still so she could go out and party.

But I guess didn't know that the way she did could kill her baby.

Oh well, just a minor bother.

Casey is free to party and get cool tattoos now that she is free of the burden of motherhood. What a selfish person.

I know you have said you are real old, but hay girl you are not too old to get a cool tattoo (Maybe one that says “Duct Tape=Party Time!) and go drinking and swinging with lil ol’ selfish ex-mother Casey!

If you have any kids around, just duct tape them to a table leg, making sure to put some on their mouths so they can't scream "HELP!"

I didn’t watch a lot of this circus, but I never heard a word about Caylee’s father. Does anyone know who he is? Has he ever said anything? This is just awful. Another murderer going free. Too bad OJ is in prison. He could “help” this female piece of excrement search for the “real murderer” of Caylee, just like he said he was doing for Nicole. (sarc)
