I have to agree with those who have said that she probably had something to do with it, but the jury took the reasonable doubt thing seriously and did the right thing in the eyes of the law. The evidence was suggestive but was not enough to convict her.

I'd hit it too.
And when I saw that fast of a verdict I was for sure thinking guilty. Obviously this jury didn't let public opinion affect they're decision. Kudos to them for letting the lack of evidence do the talking. You can't convict someone of a crime without beyond a reasonable doubt evidence.

You must be pretty sick yourself to "hit it" knowing that this woman bound, gagged, killed her daughter and got away with it only because the crime scene didn't have enough evidence to convict her.

Many "talking-heads" were stunned.

When a jury reaches a verdict in a short period of time, in a case of this nature, the finding is more often than not, "guilty". This finding was an exception to the rule.

It's easy to imagine that this jury felt the pressure of public opinion on their shoulders. Regardless, they  blocked it out and concluded, that based on the state's case, evidence of guilt was simply not there. Good for the members of the jury, that really does take a hell of a lot of courage.

The media was practically leading a lynch mob. What ever happened to unbiased journalism?

Cable news has gotten to be way out of control.

So you can't understand how people can be upset that a murderer of a helpless toddler wasn't convicted.  Not guilty doesn't mean innocent.

Not guilty doesn't mean innocent.

Yeah it kind of does if you believe in the American justice system.

Innocent until proven guilty.

No suprise - OJ Simpson all over.

The thing the struck me was when the verdict was read everyone was in shock - then the lawyer comments "well, the system still works...its still a good system"
Pray tell what is so good about a justice system that routinely dishes out probation for murder (at least 2nd degree possibly 1st) ?
What is so good about a system where defense attournies do not even WANT to know the truth about their client so they be better at their job?
What is so great about a justice system that doesnt even attempt to seek the truth?

Isnt justice equitable to truth?
Laws are here for people not the other way around...

How do you know the child was murdered?

According to the law she is innocent.

No, it doesn't. Not guilty is nothing more than a stand that says the government didn't do enough to prove beyond a reasonable doubt person X did action Y.  The purpose of that isn't to say people shouldn't be judged, it is there to limit the ability of government to abuse its power over the citizens. Nothing says that it is a good standard for making judgements in your daily life.  I can believe in the American justice system and still believe OJ is a guilty man.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

nancy grace will have to find a new murdered child to fasten her fangs on and suck dry like the f'n harpy she is.  the need for absolute proof is so strong that people get off because you cannot trust police not to try and seek closure instead of justice. vicious cycle.  since we cannot trust our system not to railroad people the proof bar is set high. some crawl under it.  i would still rather live in a place where 100 guilty go free rather than one innocent go to jail than nancy grace's world where it's better that a hundred innocent people go to jail rather than one guilty person go free.

I think I'd rather live in a world where a hundred innocent people go free and Nancy Grace goes to jail.

ORLANDO --

Casey Anthony has been subpoenaed to give deposition in the Zenaida Gonzalez case against her.

Casey is due to give a deposition on July 19 in attorney John Morgan's office in downtown Orlando.

Gonzalez said Casey ruined her life when she claimed a babysitter, also named Zenaida Gonzalez, took her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Even though police have cleared this Zenaida Gonzalez of being involved in Caylee's murder, and even though the Anthony family said this wasn't the same woman Casey told them about, she is still suing Casey for defamation.

The civil suit against Casey is expected to go to trial in August.

Here you go LEGEND.....something for your entertainment....

Porn King: Casey Anthony Could Be Killer XXX Star

7/6/2011 12:15 AM PDT by TMZ Staff 

Casey Anthony clearly has daddy issues ... which means she'd make a GREAT porn star ... and TMZ has learned she's already received an offer from the biggest name in the biz.


Hours after she was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Tuesday, Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch called up Casey's lawyer, Jose Baez, to discuss the possibility of a business relationship.

Hirsch tells TMZ ... "Whether you agree with the verdict or not, Casey will want to move forward with her life and has a right to make a living. Its not going to be easy for her and we believe we can help her make the transition into a new life."

No word on how much Hirsch is willing to pony up ... but he thinks there's a realistic chance ... noting, "Weve all seen the pictures of her partying and having a good time with friends where she definitely looks hot."

So far, Hirsch has yet to hear back from Anthony's lawyer ... but he says, Im sure Baez and Casey are celebrating today, but Im hoping to connect with him very soon.
