Casey Anthony Verdict Was The Right One
Orlando, FL—The sequestered jury was somewhat protected from the shrill voices of those wishing death for Casey Anthony. To return with guilty verdicts on the homicide related charges the jury would have had to guess their way through lousy evidence. The convictions for lying to the cops were certainly reasonable since that evidence was uncontroverted.
The fact is she lied in a world where lies roll of the tongues of Americans every day. Thankfully few liars are killers or we would have exterminated ourselves long ago.
I know the true crime buffs that live only for convictions in high profile court cases suffered a tremendous setback. Get over it since we are a country where the government has to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Casey Anthony will easily be set free suffering the loss of over two years of her life for four somewhat redundant misdemeanor charges.
Aside from the acquittal I never bought the theory she knowingly killed her child. We live in a world were accidents and the thought of negligence bring enough fear to bring about the conduct we know Casey Anthony committed.
Today there were no blood thirsty shouts of joy outside the courtroom. Today justice was served.
