Why

snipped:

Comments after the verdict by jurors and an alternate juror suggest they had no idea what their job was. They said the prosecution had not shown exactly how Caylee Anthony died, where she died, or when she died. That was not their obligation. Their obligation was to determine if Casey Anthony had killed her daughter.

    Alex Ferrer, a former criminal judge in Miami, said on Fox News that when jurors deliberate, they sometimes leave behind their common sense.

    As a judge, Ferrer said he has seen many not-guilty verdicts when it was clear to him that the defendant was guilty.

    So it was with the verdict in the murder trial of Casey Anthony.

      Thanks, Kim, for the article. I’m saving a few good articles like this one for when I get a little down and frustrated by this case. These articles bolster what I considered my own common sense when I thought Casey was guilty.

      Who really wants to put someone in prison if they’re not guilty? But this case shouted her guilt beyond reasonable doubt, family dysfunction, or any other deterrent.

        Off – you and I have been around this a long time. We have read nearly every released document, looked at pictures, watched depositions – we have enough information to make a rational sensible decision.

        casey deserves punishment

    If some of these jurors took a gamble on making money off of a not guilty verdict (which I do wonder about) I believe its gonna backfire on them where this case is concerned. It doesn’t have the race card involved like the O.J. case, nor the celebrity factor like the Robert Blake case. What it has, which works against these jurors, is the nation and parts of the world hating Casey Anthony. The majority of people can’t believe the jury didn’t use their common sense let alone follow the court’s instructions.

    I hope the medias start turning their backs on Casey Anthony now that there’s game playing by Baez, Macaluso, and Casey over her dead child’s ashes.

      Prosecutor Linda Burdick did mention in her Closing Argument that her biggest Fear is, that Common Sense will get lost when it comes to deliberating this Case.
      She put it a little different but it basically comes out the same.
      She was right, the Jury didn’t use their common Sense, if they would have the Verdict would have been different.
      We can’t respect a Jury which didn’t consider All the Evidence in this Case and didn’t pay Attention to All the Rules they were post to follow.
      Injustice has been done, that is a Fact and it can’t be changed, it’s done!
      Maybe we can learn from this Case and realize Jurors do make Errors in Judgment and we do have a Right to speak up when there is Injustice done, like in this Case.
      Our Legal System might be better than some but it is also not perfect.
      Maybe some Changes are needed to avoid a guilty Person to get free like in this Case and innocent People found guilty. Something is wrong here. JMO

        I wonder if, when considering the end result, if it was ever considered the danger she would be forced into by being released?

        The jury didn’t worry about having her back in society because they didn’t live in her community. Perhaps if the jury had been from Orlando, they would have been more concerned about their verdict.

    It has gotten ludicrous, hasn’t it. The media is actually trying to lure people into playing a game of hide and seek with her. How sad and pathetic this has all become.

    Let her flit about the countryside. I doubt she ever really saw anything other than FL and OH. Maybe lightening will strike a third time and we won’t have to concern ourselves again.

    Hi Kim. Have you been reading about this Al Taylor clown.
    Today, for the third time, he claims he has just signed Casey
    for One Million dollars. He said he met with Bozo and Casey
    and Casey told him not to call her Tot Mom and if he wanted
    to sue about previous contracts that he had to get in line. LMAO
    This clown does not One Mil……………………

    Casey was in jail during her memorial right? Was Caylee
    buried or cremated? Has Casey once asked to see where
    Caylee remains are or why the police are not looking for
    the real killer?

    She wasn’t allowed to go to the memorial, Caylee was cremated and speculation is that she is worn by family members in cremation jewelry.

    Because she knows we all know she did it

    Who would pay 1 million dollars for the following interview?
    Did Caylee drown in the swimming Pool?
    Casey: I can’t talk about that now.
    Do you know what happened to Caylee?
    Casey: I can’t talk about that now.
    How was jail?
    Casey: I ate nachos and cheese.
    End of interview. ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Dawgbert, you do realize, don’t you, that Casey is still in emotional trauma over her courtroom experience and she’s still grieving over her __________daughter?
      There is no way this fragile creature can handle an interview.

      Perhaps she will get Sims to “speak” for her, while she sits by dabbing her eyes.

      Here’s another version of a possible interview:
      Did Caylee drown in the swimming Pool?
      Casey: No, I wrapped duct tape around her mouth and nose and chloroformed her.
      Do you know what happened to Caylee?
      Casey: Yeah, I killed her, put her body in my car a few days, then dumped her.
      How was jail?
      Casey: I had a lot of alone time, but I plan on making up for lost time now that I’m free.

    The Anthonys should offer their own game show entitled: Rate This Lie

    Dr. Lillian Glass can get on and re-explain the ways you can tell someone is lying.

    Then each Anthony will be asked a series of questions, separately or together, and the viewers will rate the lies or even try to determine the truth.

    One reason why everyone wants to hear Casey speak is to see for themselves how convincing a liar she is, and how well she can bop from one lie to the next. They want to see that shift in her eyes or something that would show she’s on her game. Because she can seldom tell the truth, the game show should last many a season.

    Everyone who loves or hates the Anthonys will tune in to hug or throw stones.

    Baez can be a guest and explain the lies that work best in the courtroom and how witnesses can make themselves look like they’re crying when they’re not.

    Dr. Glass is a complete idiot. River Cruz stated in her first deposition
    she did not have affair with George. Then on the witness stand she said
    she did. Dr. Glass said she was telling the truth. I applied all of Dr.
    Glass’s observation techniques and concluded River Cruz was lying.
    I posted them on her website and she deleted them.

    She banned me for telling the truth. That she was a sensationalist who was bitter because she wasn’t somehow involved in the case and making money too.
