'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.

Casey is a GOOD MOTHER???

I have heard a lot of Freepers comment on this case, but I have yet to hear ANYONE make that ridiculous claim!

She had no job, she was a pahological liar, and she did not report her daughter missing, as she rotted in a trashbag in the woods.

I wonder if this brainless moron is typical of the other jury members?

I must have missed this but how did this beautiful little girl get in the trashbag in the woods? Was it ever asked or explained by the cops or in the trial?

This juror also believed the defense theory of cause of death. He also stated that none of the states evidence was compelling.

He is obviously mentally challenged.

I heard this clown make this comment earlier today. Lots of parents and spouses have been viewed by those on the outside as “wonderful” and they are shocked to find out that behind closed doors, they are not wonderful. Casey's mother and father are the only ones who had direct knowledge of what kind of mother Casey was and they don't think she was a wonderful mother. This alternate juror is a total idiot, but he serves a useful purpose. He exposes the truth about the stupidity of jurors. The issue is “reasonable doubt” and the jury was looking for “no doubt”. I mean give me a break, there is always the possibility of aliens from outer space. The jury FAILED to do their job!

If its a jury made up of your peers I guess they would think Casey is a good mother.

According to the jurors not by the mother who lied that the child was kidnapped by a fictitious nanny who watched the child while she worked at a fictitious job and traveled with her on fictitious vacations. That would be too much of a stretch.

I did not follow the case and I’m only learning about it since yesterday. So far, I have not heard anything compelling enough that I would sentence someone to death for. Watching shows like 48 Hours, this seems to be common that the state builds circumstantial cases and is all shocked when they don’t get a victory....I’m thinking they should instead try these cases on lesser charges or something.

You are on the jury. The state in the end of closing tells you, and I quote...”I HOPE she used the chloroform before she used the Duct Tape”. Can you explain that to me in a logical manner?

Well, according to the defense, Caylee drowned, and the Dad covered it all up after sexually molesting Casey. Then the mom did internet searches for chloroform, then she didn’t.

No one knows who searched for “neck breaking, internal bleeding” etc.

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

Casey was so distraught by her father raping her that she tried to forget about it by partying and getting tattoos and making up lies about Zanny the Nanny. Also, in not reporting anything to the police.

The main thing is, this is a “HUGE VICTORY FOR JUSTICE”® and we can all celebrate the jury’s verdict!

WOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pass the fireworks and champagne.

Meaning, the chloroform would have rendered the child unconscious so that she would not known she was being suffocated with duct tape.

Maybe I missed something...aren’t a “not guilty verdict” and an acquittal the same thing?

Casey was acquitted. She was found “not guilty”.

Am I wrong?

She was the last one to be seen with Caylee.

She is the only person with access to everything at the crime scene including the shirt Caylee wore the day of her death which Cindy never saw before even though Cindy always did the laundry.

She had the motive/motives to get rid of Caylee. “Bella Vita” the good life tatoo explains a lot. Furthermore, she never wanted to be pregnant per her friend and Cindy would not let her friend adopt Caylee.

None of her many stories proved out as to what happened to her daughter.

1. She dropped the baby off with the nanny. (Whoopsy! Zanny is not a real person.)

2. The nanny held her arms down and said she is a bad mommy and took the child. (Nope!)

3. The child drowned in the pool accidentally, the father George found the body and said “Look what you have done! You are a bad mommy!” (notice a theme here?) “Oh help me dad!” “Ok. I will put the child in the garbage bag and can you bring me the duct tape to tape her mouth too? Why dad? Duh..I don’t know. Oh...by the way, don’t say she drowned if anyone asks. Just tell them Zanny kidnapped her and I will back you. I also will duct tape the Caylee posters all over town using the same incriminating tape I used to bag Caylee. What a plan! Duh....

Oh, that's bad ... :) Didn't Mother Teresa say something like that, that with the continuance of abortion, what will stop me from killing you and you from killing me?

And I read somewhere that some folks think the grandfather could have killed Caylee. What do you think about that?

The jury had the option to find her guilty of a lesser charge of manslaughter, which would have not carried the death penalty.

They acquitted on that one, too.

"...said he would have given the same verdict and is stunned by the public anger."

Maybe they should end sequestering of juries, so that they can not only listen to the actual testimony given in court, but can then listen to hours upon hours of pundits on cable television programs arguing over what that testimony really means.

Then we wouldn't have stunned jurists.

Having no job and lying about it for two years, including to police in an investigation, in addition to everything else, is not a good mother in my book.

The state claims the Duct Tape suffocated her. That means no air in or out. Do you have the ability to comprehend? My god. If she was being suffocated by the tape how could chloroform get in to her lungs? You have got to have the ability to see that. You must. It is a very simple concept. The chloroform could not possibly be after the Duct Tape if the Duct Tape is the murder weapon as claimed.. Please explain where I am wrong. Maybe I don’t get it.

Around 10 years ago, I had around 2 months with basically nothing to do. For some reason, I found myself watching Court TV.

It was a real eye opener.

If I was a guilty person, there is nothing I would like better than an American jury. If I were innocent, I would be scared to death of facing one.

It was truly shocking how bad some of them were. There really are a lot of dumb people in the world.

Okay, strike the “no job” reference. Although, I think, in Casey’s case, with her proclivity for living off of mommy and daddy’s money and not taking personal responsibility for providing for Caylee, it is relevant. But let’s give you that one.

No, my question...do YOU think Casey was a good mother?

Or..George drowned the child in the pool while Casey slept in order to shut her up as to his abuse? Any scenario can fit here.

The results are the same but a “Not Guilty” verdict is the jury affirming that guilt wasn’t proven. The not guilty verdict actually is preferable in this case because she can be tried if again if new evidence surfaces.

An aquittal is similar to a not guilty verdict but is a verdict rendered by a judge and retrial can’t happen again no matter what evidence surfaces in the future.

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.”

Nothing I could say could dissuade this man. I gave him examples with links to sources. He says he checked them out but I have doubts about that. He always came back with the same comment...those pictures showed what a Wonderful Mother Casey Anthony was and from that he just “knew she was innocent.”

The man is college educated and has his own business in NYC. My own theory is that men WANT to see Casey as some sort of Madonna/Whore. Nancy Grace had Jesse Grund on last night and he still says the Casey he was engaged to was a sweet and wonderful young woman and mother. She has him fooled and he doesn’t want to let go of the role she was playing then but Casey has always been exactly who she was on June 16, 2008 and who she is today. People don’t make dramatic changes to their personality as a rule.

Sure, he hoped she was unconscious as she suffocated, that she didn't have to claw at the duct tape, wondering why her mother wouldn't help her.

You don't understand that?
