Casey Anthony Found Not Guilty! OJ Simpson Points And Laughs.
The 12 jurors in the Casey Anthony trial found her not guilty in the 3 year old murder case of her daughter, Caylee. Although she was convicted of 4 counts of lying to the police during the investigation, the worse she’s going to get now is 1 one year of jail for each offense. If she was convicted of 1st degree murder, she probably would have received the death sentence.
I know what a lot of people are thinking: How could a jury in their right mind return with such a verdict? What were they thinking? Did they witness the same trial as everyone else? In other words, the same questions come up that were asked after the O.J. Simpson trial.
In my mind, she was guilty as hell. Casey Anthony is an inheritantly selfish and morally corrupted person. She’s a habitual thief and liar, and yes, I have no doubt that she killed her daughter, and hid her body. However, it is the law in this country that everyone, even Casey Anthony is innocent until proven guilty. In the eyes of the jury, the prosecution did not prove her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. As with the OJ case, don’t blame the jury, blame the prosecution.
The prosecution had more than enough to poke holes in the defense and put her away. Anthony lied about her “nanny” as well as a rich boyfriend she and her daughter supposedly stayed with. Their was enough forensic evidence to tie Anthony’s car to the body, including the presence of chloroform and hair follicles in the trunk. The prosecution blew the case, pure and simple.
Is this a miscarriage of justice? Yes. Little Caylee’s murderer will never be caught; the prosecution already set her free by not proving their case well enough.
Don’t blame the court system, don’t blame the jury. Instead, point your fingers at the prosecuting attorney, as well as the investigators. Apparently, they haven’t watched enough episodes of CSI or Bones, to figure out how forensic evidence is to be used in a capitol murder trial.
I’m very sorry Caylee, that the state of Florida could not do it’s job well enough to bring your murderer to justice. I can only hope that lessons are learned, and mistakes will not be repeated the next time around. What really hurts my heart is that there will be a next time… Many next times.
