    That is a screwed up, twisted, warped understanding of what a jury's verdict means. It is NOT that she was proven not guilty; it is that she was NOT proven guilty. There is a big difference, but that does NOT mean that she is innocent. She could have been guilty as H..L, but she goes free because she was NOT PROVEN GUILTY.

    Yes, court cases ARE decided on opinions...opinions of the jurors as to what the facts are after hearing both sides. Cases are NOT decided on opinions of spectators, though.

    Good point. Just like oj cutting his wife's head off. GUILTY! And got away with MURDER tried by a jury of his own kind.

    Very good point but the opinion of the jurors should be based on ALL the facts of the case presented in the courtroom. When we say all the facts even such things as the demeanor of the witnesses may be used. You are right on about not the opinion of spectators or the media.

    Not just someone, but the right person has to answer for this. Having some idea how she died would have really helped. I don't know if this woman killed her daughter or not and from what I saw it was never really proven. However, I do think she knows something more than she is telling.

    About the only thing I am relatively sure of is that she was a horrible mother and should be sterilized before leaving prison.

    Not guilty but also not innocent.

    I can tell you first hand what it's like to have a small child murdered. My wife spent years in therapy to cope with such a horrific death. There were nightmares and crushing depression.

    Casey Anthony acted like no normal mother would. She was detached. Concerned for herself only. A true Sociopath.

    I didn't follow the case, but I know the gist. They published Casey's letters and I read some of them. There is an obvious disconnect with reality, more than incarceration would suggest. It's pretty obvious she experienced arrested development when she was a teenager. Her phrases, goals, ideas, and even her handwriting suggest her mental age is somewhere between 16 and 19--19 being the age she got pregnant. She expresses care for her child, but neither remorse nor anger over Caylee's death, which suggests there's some part of her that just doesn't "get it."

    Some armchair psychology, anyway.

    Sounds to me like a whole lot of folks here are in favor of Sharia Law. I still like the Trial by Jury system.

    Somebody get a rope. There, I said it for you.
