Did anyone follow it?

What are your thoughts with the Not-Guilty verdict?

Personally, I feel that unforunately, it's not about whether or not she is actually guilty, but whether or not the prosecution was able to prove beyond a doubt that she did it - which they could not. Most of us know/feel that she is guilty, but it was all only circumstancial and common sense which wasn't enough... It is a damn shame! Biggest upset since OJ!

same thing I said on FB. I think it's BS, but ultimately the fault lies with the state for not providing concrete evidence. You can't base your case on circumstantial evidence and expect a guilty verdict.

Yeah. I wasn't going to put it on FB but for some reason my SC wasn't working right so I brought it to FB for convo.
But yeah, I agree.

being white and/or having enough money for your defense doesn't hurt in situations like this.

:confused:

I don't think it has anything to do with being white.
Race issues will stop when people stop trying to point stuff like that out IMO.

As much as I would like her to have been found guilty, the prosecution was not able to connect the dots well enough to prove beyond reasonable doubt...Same with OJ...even though we all know and feel he did it.

How much time will she get for this "She is guilty of providing false information to a law enforcement officer."?

maximum is 4 years I think? And the judge could include the 2 years served waiting for her trial leaving her with a small punishment indeed.

I'd take being white and/or having $ ANY day if I were in court. It might not be right but not everyone in the jury of my peers has risen above the race thing and if it were my ass on the line I'd like as few things going against me as possible.

All I have to say about it is things will be made right on His time. I said something similar to this on Facebook. Caycee will have justice one way or another.

For sure not everyone has risen above it...
Those people have no business on a jury. I am not saying in general race doesn't come into play (even when it obvs shouldn't) but in this case, I do not think it was a factor.

I hope so.

My feeling...

One, or all three, of the Anthony's know what happened to this baby...

That's one.

Two. What DID come out in the trail is that the Anthony family is not only beyond dysfunctional...Casey Anthony's defense team even opened up abuse charges on the father (and covering up an accidental drowning).


It's already ended badly for little Caylee.This whole tragedy will not...cannot...end well for the rest of the Anthony's.

Becca, I saw the case just as you did. The prosecution just didn't have enough evidence. Then, there were conflicting expert witnesses on the evidence from the trunk, etc. I'm actually interested to see how all three of the remaining Anthonys behave now that the trial is over...:angel:

This whole case has been to depressing for me to watch closely. But I do not agree with the verdict. And sadly this women will probably go on and have more children if she isn't in prison. And that's terrifying.

And I think that this point is important, rather you are religious or not, especially when you are not dealing with natural born killers (whom tend to have no conscious about these things).

Conscious is a beast that will never let go.

Again, between the three living Anthony's...some, or all three, know exactly what happened...and I'm afraid that it will come out in the end in not-so-pretty ways.

I don't think there was enough evidence.

But I do think she killed her daughter or was involved in some f*cked up situation.

Maybe these lawyers should go to hell as well............

Once the jury left, Casey hugged her attorneys and squealed out loud. The lawyers high-fived one another, and minutes later Casey laughed as she was fingerprinted on the convictions for lying to detectives.

I'm not saying that this chick isn't a sociopath, but DA's have to be ever mindful of the fact that - for better or for worse - a large percentage of Americans are under the influence of CSI.

If we're being completely honest, it means that it's going to be more difficult to get a guilty verdict in some cases, but the flip side is that it's going to help prevent some innocent persons from being sent to prison.

As for this specific case, I honestly haven't heard/read much about it or the evidence presented, so I can't offer any sort of conjecture other than to say that Casey acted like she was taking part in some sort of coverup.

Regardless of the outcome of this case, she definitely has a pretty bright future in low-grade porn.

So incredibly sad. From everything I have seen and read on the case, I do believe that she was guilty and that the prosecution just didn't have enough physical evidence to get to "beyond a reasonable doubt". The autopsy couldn't even site a cause of death, which leaves the door open for so many other possible scenarios. I was hoping that Casey's behaviour and web of lies would speak volumes, it certainly did to me. I just hope that the jury got it right, and I got it wong, because I hate to think that, that girl just got away with murder.

Only possible good thing to come out of this (whether she's guilty or not), is that Nancy Grace will probably have a heart attack this week.

I wasn't necessarily surprised being that the hardcore evidence wasn't there.....however, I do feel there was enough to get a conviction on at least manslaughter if nothing else. If she drowned, accidents happen, but why all the cover up. Not sure how she was found not guilty on the child abuse/neglect. How is it normal to go 30 days w/o reporting a 2year old missing....30 minutes would be max b4 I'm calling the police.

I feel the same. I agree there wasn't anythign concrete enough to get her for murder yes, but I think some sort of negligent homicide or at least 'endangerment of a child' or something...I mean, they should be throwing the book at her from all angles. To me, the coverup SCREAMS guilt and foul play.

What bugs me is that now she'll likely pen all types of book/biography and mini-series/movie deals and gain income from this.

Hopefully she will not have any more children...

If I were the DA I would have done 2nd degree based on at the very least how the body was found....the intent to cover up something, rather it was accidental drowning or not is very evident. I don't have a law degree and I can see how she got off of the 1st degree.....they have to prove how it was premeditated along w/ the evidence. It annoys me b/c I think something happened and they covered it up may be due to one of the 3 of them supervising the child being high on drugs, etc which as you said could hold the charge for negligent homicide or manslaughter. Something, isn't right w/ this situation. The average person isn't trying to cover up an accidental death. All speculation on my part, too bad the jury can't go w/ gut feelings and 6th sense.

Right. You would think they would be crying either way, or upset in some way.
Daughter, spending life in jail or happy that daughter was found not guility and they are relieved she is free...
Or, you would think they'd show some sort of emotion for the fact that the long battle of court is over, and/or sad in loss for the loss of a beautiful grandbaby... SOMETHING!

you would think. but if their souls were already gone due to any part they played then maybe 'normal' human emotion is unlikely.

Everyone responds to tragedy differently. It's always bothersome when police officers or first responders try to draw conclusions about a person's possible guilt based on how they *think* a person ought to be acting when there's been a suspicious death.

I did not follow the case, but I am aware enough to know that there are many Americans who are convinced 'she did it!' solely because she was out partying with friends shortly after her daughter is believed to have disappeared.

I know that idiots often get lucky, but even considering that truism, Casey Anthony doesn't come across as the type of person who'd be smart enough to commit a crime without leaving any evidence behind.

As for her parents, it doesn't take more than a few observations to determine that Casey pretty much ran that household from the time she was a little girl, as mommy and daddy catered to her every wish. The lack of accountability she's displayed publicly is pretty solid proof of what happens when kids are raised with backbone-less parents who only want to please their kids.

I know how this is going to sound to some people, but in many ways, little Caylee is very fortunate to be forever freed from this completely dysfunctional family.

Yeah, and not just her; any of the jurors could seek a book deal or something too. It's just a matter of time before anyone does, whomever was involved in any way in this case.

Well, just my opinion, but ANY guy who wants to continue making babies with HER deserves to be hung up by his sacs!

I don't like the name "Tot Mom" because I feel like it dehumanizes baby Caylee. I feel like her spirit and the sole purpose of this child got lost along the way in the media frezy with that name.

People are always going to jump to conclusions...and first responders and gut instincts are, more often than not, right.
Tre, you know I love ya but there is nothing you can say that will make me feel like her behavoir (lying to police, covering up an 'accidental death', partying when her child is missing) doesn't reek of cold-blooded, ruthless, foul play.
