I don't have any words that can accurately reflect what is running through my mind and my heart right now.

I'll just convey the text I received from my vacationing 14 yr old son... "WHAT THE HECK????!!!!! That's crap!!!"... This is the same child that asked me 3 years ago, "why would she kill such a cute & sweet little girl?"....

Evidently the teenage Facebook world in North Georgia is blowing up with the news. Every single kid is heartbroken, they are angry and they do not understand how this could happen.

What message does this travesty of justice send to our children???

Same. My daughter and her friend are both reading fb messages. Even Children know better. Shameful.

Thanks! Wow, it is very strange about the no voting, but being allowed on a jury. And I would think it would be the prosecution that has a problem with a felon being on the jury. Sorry....do not want to insult you at all. You seem like a reasonable person with an open mind.

Sorry you are correct, I misspoke, I meant to say prosecution but was thinking about CA's defense team and wrote defense instead It was always the ADA's that chose to cut me. I have grown up a lot and changed my life, you aren't insulting at all I promise :)

Justice for for our babygirl! May her mother be sentenced to a forced tubal ligation with no sedatives or pain meds!!!

Thanks for your response and honesty. I wonder if it has to do with what the charges were in the past for the jurors? What do you think of this?

I think someone that is a felon...or convicted of murder?....can't vote. Is this true. If a felon can't vote how could they serve on a jury? Or is it a murderer, not felon in general? TIA!

17 yrs ago, I caught a case. I was 28 at the time, no speeding tickets, no nothing. I got hooked on cocaine after my divorce, and was caught with less then 28 grams. I served 3 yrs flat in a texas prison. I am glad to say now that ive been drug free for 17 yrs now.
I can vote in the state of texas. I cannot have a firearm tho.

I was summoned last year to serve on a jury, and the summons had said no felony convictions can serve, I faxed them my info, but they didnt belive me, I had to get my lawyer to handle it.

now yall know something about me. Im not proud of it, I was depressed after a divorce, did something stupid and when caught, I stood before the judge and told him I was guilty, and since i had clean record at the time, the judge gave me 3 yrs, but I did those yrs and am clean now.

eta, i have seen many baby killers in prison and they get treated very badly..
Im sick that casey was found not guilty

Just heard CM tell Jean Casarez on HLN that ICA (she's not out yet!!!) will NOT be living with her family.

My guess, she'll be a live-in mistress for Baez now! Clearly they have been very affectionate to one another. :sick:

I pray that society shuns her but sadly, I know there is a sick element out there that will greet her with open arms.

We need to prepare ourselves. She will make money off her daughter's death. She will have a new-found celebrity. She will have fun and live the life she's only dreamed of. She'll take the money she earns and get a bodyguard or two.

Eventually she'll get what's coming to her, but we'll have to sit back and watch her life go happily on for a while, a la OJ Simpson. It's going to be very difficult.

She will turn her back on her mother, who is so thrilled right now that she's probably planning their first shopping day and lunch together. Good luck Cindy, you got what you wanted.

Caylee knows there are thousands, if not millions of people out here who love her and cherish her memory. Maybe that is enough.

We turned the tv on at work when the verdict was read. No one could believe it. I will not watch anymore news coverage. I don't want to see or hear any of the TH, the DT, or jury members speaking on this case. There's nothing they can say to make me believe justice was served today and I won't feed their ego's or pocketbooks by lsiening or watching.

I have to keep reading here though. It's like you guys are the only ones who understand. I feel horrible. I don't believe we have any system of justice any more. Thank you all for being here and giving me a place to cry.

I'm sorry Caylee. At least we know you're safe with the angels now. I'm so sorry it all turned out this way.

I just want to say congratulations on being clean! 18 years sober for me. I can understand making mistakes. Especially when you are young and hurting. KC on the other hand, I really believe is a sociopath. And that she knows she can get away with murder is just unspeakable. So scary.

I've just stopped crying. I can't -believe- the jury has come back with "not guilty" of any manner of murder. I don't understand, I can't comprehend, and I don't know if my heart could ever take following a case this long again, especially with a turnout like this. I've got a picture of Caylee up on my computer, because if no one in her family is crying for her today, then I will.

I am devestated, heart-broken, my faith in the system is destroyed, and I a still in shock. I'm sitting in a room full of sleeping 3-5 year old children and I can't help but think how little their lives are valued. I'm going to hug them all extra when they wake up. This is a travesty...I was driving when I heard the verdict and just about drove off the side of a highway overpass. This is not right. This is wrong. This evidence and verdict do not coincide. I am disgustied to be an American and a human being right now, as those two categories put in the the same categories as the DT and ICA. Yep, I'm still gonna call her that. On my way home, in my car alone, I'll be calling her a lot more than that.
I'm beside myself with disgust...I can't even concentrate on work, I'm just....appalled, shocked, devistated, disappointed, disgusted, and faithless.

Do they believe she drowned & GA decided rather than her be charged with child neglect, lets see, we'll go for 1st degree murder instead.

I was at the doctors office ..I crowded along with all the nurses to watch the verdict.
We all gasped . There were tears
People on the lobby were also asking HOW?
How could she be found not guilty .
Poor Caylee ..I hope she knows how much the world loves her .
I cant handle talking heads saying they didnt prove the case right now . It took me 2 hours since I got home to come here . I dread picking up my son Adam . I know he is going to be devastated ...he couldnt even watch Caylee sing ;you are my sunshine ' without leaving the room .
The verdict was read after my son Ryan got to work . He ran up to his dad very upset . As soon as I walked in the door my oldest Tommy ran to me ..I could tell by his eyes what was going on with him .
My 3 boys are in their 20's and they didn't fall for any of the defense for a second but also made up their own minds .
I am so sorry to everyone here that love Caylee as their own . It does make my heart feel better that you all love her so much .
I just cannot stop crying .

I just keep having this weird thought. How many other children's deaths will go unpunished because the killer will study Casey 101?

That's what my daughters were saying earlier. If you what to get rid of your baby go to Florida and do as KC did. I've also been thinking, I wonder what was done to baby Caylee, what horrible things did she have to endure before the tape was put on?

I think Judge Perry was suprised. Poor Linda, Jeff and Frank. I felt so bad for them leaving the courtroom while the hug fest with the DT was going on. Bah humbug. Bah humbug. Bah humbug. Rest in peace Caylee.

I like Wendy Murphy. She is a former prosecutor and is now an advocate for women and children. She mentioned this theory on one of the weekend shows. I have always felt there is more then we know going on.

As for my opinion on the verdict.....I told my hubby last week that the State had holes and that they could not directly connect Casey to the evidence. If I can see this even knowing all that I know about this case, then I can see HOW the jury came to their decisions.

I just hope that someday justice will be found for Caylee.

:grouphug: I just adore all of you and it has been an absolute pleasure watching this trial with all of you. If you are hurting, you are not alone. I feel surrounded by all of you right now and it truly makes me feel comforted. We will always have each other. Who does Casey have? No one.

I feel the same way, even though I have been here only since jury selection. I have learned so much from you all, and had many laughs too. But I feel nauseated at the verdict. I feel numb and angry and ashamed of the jury. Too many emotions now. I can't keep reading or watching TV. Thinking ICA will make tons of money from books and TV shows makes me ill. IF she does make money, she should be required to reimburse the State of Florida.

The last time I felt so sad and shocked was when Tim miller called off the search in nov 2008. The sadness was so strong I could cut it with a knife.
The only hope I have here is that in her own time, Caylee made herself known, and was found. I still feel that somehow, Caylee will have justice. But for now, I cry. For her. For those who loved her in life and those of us who grieve and love her in death.

My only peace in this whole thing is...

To Caylee, eventhough your time on this earth was short(ened), YOU loved your family the best you could in the time you were allowed to walk among them. Your heart and soul was pure and undeserving of the injustice served today. You were BEST thing that came out of all of this mess. Your smiles, cuteness, singing, and playfulness will be blazoned on OUR hearts and you will never be forgotten. I am glad you were allowed to leave this all for us, not to torture us, but to allow us know that there is good in this world that dwells in the innocence of children. You are the light now that I carry in my heart.

Today is a very sad day for me. I have followed this case since day. I have not been on this forum in a long time with the hopes of the day she was convicted to come here and be happy. Instead I sit in my office crying as I type this. It angers me that this jury could not at least convict her in a child neglect case. To think that some of these people wanted to be on the jury also further upsets me and leads me to wonder why they wanted on so bad!

I hope Cindy is prosecuted for perjury and obstruction of justice.

Is there any hope that ICA can be prosecuted for a federal crime?

And I also hope Mr. Morgan gets every dime ICA ever gets her hands on to satisfy ZFG's claim.

The State Attorney said it all when he said that because of the delay in finding Caylee's remains most likely resulted in this miscarriage of justice.

Don't forget there was talk that the IRS has served her because she did not pay taxes on the $$$ she got from one of the news agencies and Jose took as payment... perhaps he paid his taxes on receiving his pay but she got the money first and then bought his services.

I am going over tomorrow morning and put some flowers out at the site where little Caylee was found. I'm going to say my goodbyes and try and move on. This has put alot of weight on my soul for the past 3 years. I'm ashamed to say I'm from Orlando (Orange County) or even the state of Florida. I just don't get how these people from Pinellas County could all agree to this and then not to face the fire and explain why.

I heard that the defense had a plan in place for when she get's out (which I think it will be Thursday). They are getting her out of Orlando.....Which brings me to think she will stay with Dorothy Simms in Ocala.

I hope everyone can try and find a little peace some how!

Yes, they'll be looking for the "real" killer while they reap in millions from media outlets just like OJ went looking for the "real" killer on the golf course.

This is how not overly bright people operate. They are short-sighted and self-interested. In the end, all of them will receive their due. And it will be permanent and irrevocable. A Higher Power will see to that.

Caylee is fine now. She will be forever fine. The others here? Not so much. The train is coming.

Alternate juror #14, Russell Huekler, agrees with the jury’s verdict.

“We don’t know how she (Caylee) died,” the alternate juror told Fox News. “It just comes down to probably an accident that the family didn’t know how to cope with…the prosecution failed to show motive.”

Caylee you do not belong to the A's anymore we have all adopted.

Even though I can't stand her, Nancy Grace said something a little while ago that I very much agree with. She said that while the defense was in the bar celebrating with their champagne, somewhere behind them the "devil was dancing".

Sometimes the devil wins - temporarily. He won this battle but the Anthonys and their celebrating defense team will lose this war in the end. They won't answer to man in this case, but they will answer to a permanent authority. In the meantime, the remainder of their lives here on earth they will be forever tainted and mocked and reviled and rejected. The blood money they earn will bring nothing but strife between them and others. The devil has won nothing at the end of the day.

Random thoughts in no particular order:

* Like most here I am horrified by this verdict. No only will there be no justice for Kaylee, but the opposite -- her killed is about to CASH IN. Casey is now a celebrity, she is now the person to be seen with, she is the coolest cat in any room. People will want their pictures taken with her, they will want her autograph.

* While it is absolutely NOT a popular sentiment here, I have said for some time now that JB was a good attorney and doing a fine job...

* JA and the prosecution team, on the other hand, did a fantastic job and then failed spectacularly at the end with their closing. The left out a very criticial point of their rebutal...

* They never CLEARLY explaned to the jury what beyond a reasonable doubt meant. Mr Mason did a FANTASTIC job creating the illusion that anything less than absolute 100% air-tight PROOF was a "reasonable doubt." The prosecution pretty much allowed that nonsense to stand unchallenged, which likely goes a long way towards explaining why....

* This jury had already reached a verdict before they retired. They went back there with the opinion that the prosecution had not "proven" their case. They also, likely (and this is also gonna annoy some here), felt that...

* Mr Ashton acted like a complete tool during the defense closing. The guy was arrogant, cocky, and a bit of a jerk during the best of times, and that likely was a bit off-puting, but that stunt during the defense closing was outrageous. And I say this as a HUGE FAN.

* Please please PLEASE stop with the "Kaylee is in a better place" and "God will punish Casey" stuff. Please. It's offensive as hell to some of us.

* The folks who are using this verdict as an excuse to condemn the entire jury system make no more sense than those who would say that all mothers are as fatally flawed as Casey. It's not perfect, but our system is the best in human history, and generally when it makes a mistake it is in favor of the accused. It's designed that way for a reason -- it is better for a hundred guilty to go free than for one innocent to be wrongly condemned.

* It is totally inappropriate to villify the defense team for the actions of Casey or defending her. They did their job, and very well. They won a case that NO ONE thought could be won.

* This verdict is NOT an excuse to abandon the search for justice for everyone else or to quit these forums. If anything it is a call for more activity.

Thanks for reading.

We turned the tv on at work when the verdict was read. No one could believe it. I will not watch anymore news coverage. I don't want to see or hear any of the TH, the DT, or jury members speaking on this case. There's nothing they can say to make me believe justice was served today and I won't feed their ego's or pocketbooks by lsiening or watching.

I have to keep reading here though. It's like you guys are the only ones who understand. I feel horrible. I don't believe we have any system of justice any more. Thank you all for being here and giving me a place to cry.

I'm sorry Caylee. At least we know you're safe with the angels now. I'm so sorry it all turned out this way.

I know how you feel. After the verdict was read I turned off all my TV's, the computer, and took my puppy Molly and went to bed. But I needed to be back here, to be with everyone I have spent the last three years with for baby Caylee. I am so sorry too baby Caylee. I wanted so much for the truth to come out.

Alternate juror #14, Russell Huekler, agrees with the jury’s verdict.

“We don’t know how she (Caylee) died,” the alternate juror told Fox News. “It just comes down to probably an accident that the family didn’t know how to cope with…the prosecution failed to show motive.”

They had tons more evidence than the Scott Peterson case & this is their answer???????? Just does not make sense.

Did they discount Cindy's lies about the chloroform searches?

Do they believe she drowned & GA decided rather than her be charged with child neglect, lets see, we'll go for 1st degree murder instead.

MAKES NO SENSE TO ME or ANYONE I'VE TALKED TO!!!

I also thought back to the SP case. I agree there was a lot more evidence in this case than the SP case and I'm shocked 12 people couldn't see some of glaring details and evidence. I can't believe they glossed how over Manly Cindy's lies about the computer searches.

I don't know what to say. There's really no way to make it better. Talking Heads on the news and all over acting like they all saw it coming add salt to the wound. The jurors not saying anything afterwards is unhelpful. Nothing left but confusion, sadness, and feeling stunned.

A way to make it better - won't get justice for Caylee, but may help someone else innocent and lost: Go thru the cold cases and see if you can help. If you live near where someone went missing, see if you can walk the area, even in years have passed (Be very careful and take someone else with you, please). Maybe some other lost innocent can be found, to honor Caylee.

It's just all too sad.

He also said, "While the family may never know what happened to Caylee Marie anthony...". Really, George? Really? YOU know!

"they now have closure for this chapter of their lives..." Just wait for the next chapter. There will be one, count on it.

"... they would prefer stuffed animals be donated in Caylee's name... where the toys will be appreciated". F'ing ingrates.

Even though I can't stand her, Nancy Grace said something a little while ago that I very much agree with. She said that while the defense was in the bar celebrating with their champagne, somewhere behind them the "devil was dancing".

Sometimes the devil wins - temporarily. He won this battle but the Anthonys and their celebrating defense team will lose this war in the end. They won't answer to man in this case, but they will answer to a permanent authority. In the meantime, the remainder of their lives here on earth they will be forever tainted and mocked and reviled and rejected. The blood money they earn will bring nothing but strife between them and others. The devil has won nothing at the end of the day.

I hope this is temporary win in the war. I can see issues arising with the DT and the Anthonys later on. George and Lee's reputations will always suffer because of the accusation of sex abuse. I can people avoiding both men in neighborhoods, workplaces and other places. I can see one of both of them eventually turning on Casey and Cindy. Cindy's reputation is tainted. She lied in court and evidence proved it. Blood money will definitely bring a strife.

To everyone who feels they have let Caylee down, I'd like to share a thought with you.

Justice does not build a stairway to heaven.
Love does that, and initially Caylee was unloved and dumped by her mother.
Then her grandparents and uncle abandoned her to take up for her poor excuse for a parent.


BUT now - 3 years down the line, JA, FG, LDB and thousands of strangers (you included) have embraced Caylees cause, fought for justice, prayed for her peace, and hung onto hope that someone would pay.
The lack of payment is just one small part, your love and your prayers lifted Caylee into heaven a long time ago. That is worth so much more than a guilty verdict.

Caylee sits at the end of every rainbow that you see, swinging her legs and singing. Sometimes she kicks that pot of gold and a coin falls out, so when you find a penny on the floor......... that is Caylee reminding you that she is now loved.

Oh I totally disagree with Casey becoming a "celebrity" and people wanting to be seen with her. Come on now she is not Kim Kardashian. She did not just make a porno video. She was accused of murdering her child and even though she was found innocent. In the court of public opinion she will always be guilty and we all know the jury got it wrong. No one will want to be seen with her. Everyone will refer to her as the "Baby killer who got away with murder". The same will be the case with her lawyers. A killer is a killer. All the money in the world can't change that. I DO agree with your "reasonable doubt' part 100%. This jury and many others like it still do not understand what that means. In addition Ashton's behavior did concern me.
As to your other opinions I do have serious reservations about our jury system. I just don't believe the "Average Joe" is qualified to be a juror and emotions and personal opinions get in the way of the FACTS. This is exactly what happened today. Otherwise Casey Anthony wouldn't have gotten away with murder but like with O.J. justice will eventually be served to Ms. Anthony.


Random thoughts in no particular order:

* Like most here I am horrified by this verdict. No only will there be no justice for Kaylee, but the opposite -- her killed is about to CASH IN. Casey is now a celebrity, she is now the person to be seen with, she is the coolest cat in any room. People will want their pictures taken with her, they will want her autograph.

Mr Mason did a FANTASTIC job creating the illusion that anything less than absolute 100% air-tight PROOF was a "reasonable doubt." The prosecution pretty much allowed that nonsense to stand unchallenged, which likely goes a long way towards explaining why....

* Please please PLEASE stop with the "Kaylee is in a better place" and "God will punish Casey" stuff. Please. It's offensive as hell to some of us.

Something just occurred to me. They keep saying the State had no smoking gun. You know what? I think the smoking gun was the fight that occurred the night of June 15 that no one in the Anthony family would admit to.

Lee told something about it, other people heard about it. No one would admit it under oath because THAT was the smoking gun. That would sealed the state's case if Cindy had said they fought and she threatened to get custody of Caylee.

I have always felt this fight happened and the family knew that if they admitted it it would seal Casey's fate.

They have made their beds. Even George, he was there and he knew what happened on June 15.

Along with everyone else I'm heart sick over this verdict. From the beginning I was worried about how the state would handle the Anthony's. During the trial, it seemed as though the state wasn't being honest as far as their involvement in lying and covering up for Casey. I felt at least they should have been charged with obstruction , tampering with evidence. Maybe that would have helped in the circumstantial part of their case, and the jury could understand better the family dynamics. Casey and her family have gotten away with so much. What does this mean to families who may have similar circumstances to this case ? There was no justice for sweet Caylee today, none, nada, zip, 0 ! God Bless you sweet Caylee:heartbeat::rose:

Very Sad
About every five days a small child dies from accidental drowning in the U.S. ...very tragic, but accidental, not murder. How many duct tape and hide the body of their own dead child, lie to everyone, place blame on fictional person(s) and continue with their life as nothing happened?.... The standard is "Beyond a REASONABLE Doubt", not beyond the realm of any distorted, twisted series of events the defense attorney can put together! If anyone thinks hiding your own child's body, bound in duct tape, and pretending nothing happened is reasonable, and the person(s) involved are not responsible for the death, please let them know during jury selection you watch too much television and cannot determine what is real and what is a story for entertainment.

The judicial system needs an overhaul, particularly in the area of jury selection. We obviously have a problem here. Do we need to form professional jurors??? Test, qualify, quantify them prior to serving? I can see where that might cause some problems, but the judicial system needs to better qualify jurors by making sure that they understand the terminology, or request that the courts use 'plain' English in charging the jurors for deliberation. I also think we need to be sure that the jurors can tie their own shoes, walk without walking off a cliff, use a remote to operate their tv's and even perhaps add 1 + 1. George could...just sayin....

i was at a doctor's appointment when i overheard someone in the reception area talking about it because they heard it on the radio. i had hoped that i overheard wrong, or that they had misheard the radio.

i have so many threads to catch up on and i don't even know how to begin. what's next?

did HHJP ever rule on the last motion for mistrial? can he rule on that now and grant them mistrial, or would that be grossly unethical/wishful thinking on my part?

:banghead:

i am going to pour every drop of extra love i can on my children, today and every day. this feels so not right to me, my head is literally buzzing from how just plain shocked i am.

To everyone who feels they have let Caylee down, I'd like to share a thought with you.

Justice does not build a stairway to heaven.
Love does that, and initially Caylee was unloved and dumped by her mother.
Then her grandparents and uncle abandoned her to take up for her poor excuse for a parent.


BUT now - 3 years down the line, JA, FG, LDB and thousands of strangers (you included) have embraced Caylees cause, fought for justice, prayed for her peace, and hung onto hope that someone would pay.
The lack of payment is just one small part, your love and your prayers lifted Caylee into heaven a long time ago. That is worth so much more than a guilty verdict.

Caylee sits at the end of every rainbow that you see, swinging her legs and singing. Sometimes she kicks that pot of gold and a coin falls out, so when you find a penny on the floor......... that is Caylee reminding you that she is now loved.
NSS- do you really think so? Do you believe she is at peace? I'm so trying to hold on to what little faith I have left. I have seen time and time again how little our society values the life of a child. I never wanted to believe early on that a mother could do this to her child...but the evidence convinced me. In my mind, there is no punishment harsh enough for what Casey did to Caylee. I'm holding on to the fact (pointed out by a poster here)...that not guilty does not mean that she is innocent. I hope the public at large holds on to their outrage long enough to make sure that the death of a child is not a commodity to be sold and will protect Caylee by making sure that not one of the Anthonys makes one more penny off this poor little girl.

GoneWithTheWind
07-05-2011, 06:09 PM
I just don't understand how she was not found guilty at all of anything other than lying to police. I mean doesn't one connect to the other?

I can't understand how this jury thought she was completely innocent of everything. I can't believe how much my heart hurts right now.

By this weekend Casey will walk free. She has been in jailf or three years and the judge will take that into account.

So the body in car not a big deal?
Poor Caylee thrown int he woods?
Casey not caring about her child or reporting her missing?

Did they believe the drowning? they must have, but Kronk and George being involved?

That is just crazy.

I am so sorry for Caylee she was really just meaningless in all this, even in death and murder she meant nothing.

To me at least she was beautiful and deserved justice and someone to watch over her.

Being busted for marijuana or insurance fraud is punished more severly than murder in this country. I am appalled.

The jury system should be done away with. The general population is not intelligent enough to interpret and understand forensics, nor is common sense a norm. 3 of the jury members did not graduate from highschool, 4 were convicted of various crimes. They were not intelligent enough for the responsibility of such an important decision.

They had tons more evidence than the Scott Peterson case & this is their answer???????? Just does not make sense.

Did they discount Cindy's lies about the chloroform searches?

Do they believe she drowned & GA decided rather than her be charged with child neglect, lets see, we'll go for 1st degree murder instead.

MAKES NO SENSE TO ME or ANYONE I'VE TALKED TO!!!

No, this verdict doesn't make sense, no matter how you look at it. It looks like the jury discounted the computer searches, the duct tape, the analysis of chemicals in the trunk - high levels of chloroform, and KC's behavior in the aftermath. The only guilty charges are lying.

Based on the jury's verdict, we can assume that the jury bought an accidental death, that KC didn't know what to do and couldn't face her parents, and lied. They threw out everything else.

I wonder how many of those jurors will now come here or to other forums and read all the documents and possibly question their decision?

I will keep each one of you in my prayer's, my tears fall with your's on this sad day but I will pray each day Justice and Truth.

The judicial system needs an overhaul, particularly in the area of jury selection. We obviously have a problem here. Do we need to form professional jurors??? Test, qualify, quantify them prior to serving? I can see where that might cause some problems, but the judicial system needs to better qualify jurors by making sure that they understand the terminology, or request that the courts use 'plain' English in charging the jurors for deliberation. I also think we need to be sure that the jurors can tie their own shoes, walk without walking off a cliff, use a remote to operate their tv's and even perhaps add 1 + 1. George could...just sayin....

They were sick of being sequestered and didn't want to review all that evidence to make hard decisions and wanted to get back to playing Farmville or whatever. I hold them responsible for a killer going free and the waste of millions of dollars of tax money spent on investigating the prosecuting this crime. They couldn't be bothered any more. it took too long. they wanted out and took the easiest road home. I hope they are miserable.

07-05-2011, 06:36 PM
They did too show a motive! THe motive of having poor Caylee out of the way so KC could party! THey showed the motive plain as day! Why the alt juror even saying that???

I was thinking this afternoon. In the SA case, they showed the grandparents to be doting and loving. They didn't take the motive far enough to show why ICA didn't want to leave her baby with them. LDB said "you have come to know Cindy and she would never let Casey walk away". I think this was lost on the jury. Most people could make a reasonable assumption that the Anthony's would have continued to love and take care of Caylee, so why wouldn't ICA just walk away.

IMO they really should have called Cindy's mom and brother to testify to the relationship. I think the state was played by the Anthony's and the defense team.

Boytwnmom
07-05-2011, 06:39 PM
"no cause' and "no motive" showed these people did not understand the law nor read the jury instructions. Neither is required. IMO they didn't understand the difference between manner and cause of death, they likely understood "reasonable doubt" as any doubt, and they needed to be "100% sure". This also means they didn't care. Whether they didn't care from the beginning or whether they didn't care after being sequestered for so long I think they didn't care when deliberating. They wanted the easiest way out and took it. To really decide would have required understanding the various charges and weighing the evidence against each element of each charge. They didn't do that nor did they ask for any clarification. To me, that shows a lack of due care. Professional jurors and/or judges would gaurd against that especially in high profile cases where the selection process leaves us with the odd elements of society (IMO). Professional jurors and judges would not need to be sequestered or even if they had to be this would be their profession. These jurors are a disgrace to our system...really, just all the time and money spent on this case and for them to not take it seriously...sad.

I can't stop crying. I've followed this since November 2008 & as the years passed I grew more & more positive that she'd be convicted of FDM. I was even prepared for a manslaughter verdict, but not for her to walk free.

She is now free to live the life she killed Caylee for. Cindy & George may divorce (& the latter will leave), but Cindy will carry on living in her little fantasy world & she'll welcome Casey back with open arms. George will likely kill himself. And Casey will end up with a book/movie deal & live a cushy life with not even a sliver of remorse about Caylee.

I'm struggling to comprehend how the jury came to this conclusion &, like many of you have also said, I feel like I failed her or somehow jinxed it by hoping too hard. :(

How did Juror 14 know that if he was an alternate and was not in the room deliberating? It means they all talked about it before that.

Oh I totally disagree with Casey becoming a "celebrity" and people wanting to be seen with her. Come on now she is not Kim Kardashian. She did not just make a porno video. She was accused of murdering her child and even though she was found innocent. In the court of public opinion she will always be guilty and we all know the jury got it wrong. No one will want to be seen with her. Everyone will refer to her as the "Baby killer who got away with murder". The same will be the case with her lawyers. A killer is a killer. All the money in the world can't change that. I DO agree with your "reasonable doubt' part 100%. This jury and many others like it still do not understand what that means. In addition Ashton's behavior did concern me.
As to your other opinions I do have serious reservations about our jury system. I just don't believe the "Average Joe" is qualified to be a juror and emotions and personal opinions get in the way of the FACTS. This is exactly what happened today. Otherwise Casey Anthony wouldn't have gotten away with murder but like with O.J. justice will eventually be served to Ms. Anthony.

I'm thinking maybe KC didn't, but where was baby Caylee when she wasn't with KC. I've been thinking this for awhile, and then I read what Wendy Murphy wrote, (page 10, this thread, post #236) now I"m really wondering. Kiddie Porn makes a lot of money! I wonder, if KC is innocent, will she have the guts to stand up for baby Caylee.

and not believing the body was ever in the trunk?!?!?!?! what's next, them believing ZFG was real?

KC since it would all still be about CAYLEE and not her! However, I am pretty sure the talking heads will be sucking up to all those DUH's now as well as KC too. Pretty disgusting. I, for one, plan on turning OFF my TV to something else if any one of the DUHfense team or the DUHfendant shows up on their shows.

The judicial system needs an overhaul, particularly in the area of jury selection. We obviously have a problem here. Do we need to form professional jurors??? Test, qualify, quantify them prior to serving? I can see where that might cause some problems, but the judicial system needs to better qualify jurors by making sure that they understand the terminology, or request that the courts use 'plain' English in charging the jurors for deliberation. I also think we need to be sure that the jurors can tie their own shoes, walk without walking off a cliff, use a remote to operate their tv's and even perhaps add 1 + 1. George could...just sayin....

I could not agree more.

There are no words, just deep heavy rumblings of something amiss in this universe. Caylee, Kyron, Shaniya, Haleigh, and all the other missing children cry for justice. The cry is unheeded. It's open season on the children. More cries will follow since once again the war on women and children triumphs. Watch your backs, ladies. Watch your children, your children's children, the nation's children. Evil comes in legions of packages.

It is my intention to keep myself in check and not express the feelings I feel on this day. I am heartbroken for Caylee and those who have and do love her. I will not feed on this and will simply accept what is our justice system. What else is there to do?
Try to change it. This jury should have been from Orange County and not sequestered. And they should have access to ALL the discovery, everything we here at WS have seen and had three years to digest. Baez and other defense attorneys should not be allowed to deliver the type of baseless, unsupported, slanderous opening he put forth. Judges should let juries have access to most facts relating to case available without so much picking and choosing. And if the defense gets three years, the jury should get three years too. When picking the jury, it should be more like a draft. There should be almost no excuses for avoiding jury services and pick more by lottery and less by trying to rule out jurors who know anything. If it's a jury of KC's peers, they should have been selected from the first 30 people pulled out of a hat from Orange County. Our system systematically eliminates reason. This is such a travesty. I no longer believe we have anything close to a good legal system. We need laws to change it to restore truth and justice, which were sorely missing from this verdict.

The prosecution made a HUUUGE eror in this case. The defense spent three and a half of their four hours in closing talking about and essentially redefining "reasonable doubt."

The prosecution spent all of five minutes rebutting this.

The jury went into deliberation with unanswered questions. That these questions were irrelevant to the LAW does not matter if the prosecution failed to explain to them why. These guys did not bother to weight the evidence at all, we know this from the time they spent in deliberation, and the REASON they did not bother was because they "still had questions."

And as the nice old man and the feisty young defense guy said, if you have any questions, any at all, if the prosecution failed to provide every and anything anyone could possibly ever ask, well that means not guilty.

The prosecution let that nonsense stand.

I am not totally upset about this because I have two four legged kids that keep me crazy as a parent anyway....and my friends and my relatives....they have wonderful kids who will always call me Aunt Laura (oopps...SummerRaye)...

I don't even know what to do...I want those jurors to go home...and work to try and fall asleep with what they didn't do.

I have been aroudn WS for some horrible cases...but Caylee is what brought me to you wonderful people...

I want those jurors to know what they have done to some wonderful people who have fought, researched, posted and held eachother in the fact that a beautiful 3 year old was gone with no answer...

I am going to my bedroom...renting a movie, dirnking some beer cause I can't watch the verdict delivered again. My birthmom and I have watched this whole thing since three years ago...she had to hop a plane today because her mom is having shoulder surgery at 92 years old....she just called as she landed...she couldn't speak.

I love you guys. I really really do.

According to the tow yard employee with George, they BOTH smelled the dead body and knew what it was. Why didn't either one of them call the police right then and not touch the car???

IMO, this and the cop getting away with not really looking when Kronk called the first time are the reasons LDB and JA didn't have what they needed to work with to prove beyond a reasonable doubt guilt of ICA.

We're all grieving little Caley. All over again. Every day. Her memory embedded in our hearts and minds. And God help me I'm trying to maintain and remember my own Christian values and I'm having issues with that right now. I'm a parent and here I am grieving for a child that was never mine. God help me because if I was to ever learn what hate felt like?

Oh I totally disagree with Casey becoming a "celebrity" and people wanting to be seen with her. Come on now she is not Kim Kardashian. She did not just make a porno video. She was accused of murdering her child and even though she was found innocent. In the court of public opinion she will always be guilty and we all know the jury got it wrong. No one will want to be seen with her. Everyone will refer to her as the "Baby killer who got away with murder". The same will be the case with her lawyers. A killer is a killer. All the money in the world can't change that. I DO agree with your "reasonable doubt' part 100%. This jury and many others like it still do not understand what that means. In addition Ashton's behavior did concern me.

I have to respectfully disagree with you. She will become a celebrity and people will flock to be around her. The reason I say this is because I used to work with a girl who eventually became OJ's longtime girlfriend after he was aquitted (she was still with him when he eventually went to prison). I know that when they would come home to visit her family people went nuts to be seen with him.
I never once heard anyone ever say anything negative to him...in fact, they tripped over each other to sit at his table and take pictures with him.
I do believe people will clamor to be near Casey even though we all know she is a "baby killer"...sad but true in this day & age.

Okay lawyers out there. Since she has been acquitted, but convicted of lying to the police, admitting the baby died in the pool on June 16th, can she be charged for the costs financially of the search for a "missing child"? Runaway bride was. Perhaps we can do something to help by asking the SA to charge her financially with these costs?

It is with a heavy heart that I write this. I am so sad that there will never be justice for Caylee Marie. We have all invested so much time here discussing the case, going over the evidence, talking things through and praying for justice. Sadly, it wasn't enough. All that it took to create reasonable doubt was some lies told by the DT. It's not right, but it happens everyday. We all must accept the verdict and move on in our lives broken heart and all. It will do none of us any good to keep rehashing the case, wondering where it went wrong.
My son came home from work today and ask me what happened, what went wrong. He had heard the verdict on the radio. Naturally, I started ranting and raving on about the lies and how a murderer will walk away with time served. He stopped me and said "Mom, that girl will never have a peaceful day in her life. Its ruined. People will hassle her and call her names. She will have no friends and who would hire her for a job? She will have to live in fear for her life for quite some time over this verdict too." Then he said " Mom, what if it were really an accident or what if her dad was in on it or what if she just downright killed her baby? We will NEVER know the truth. The truth is something that Casey has to live with the rest of her life". And my son is correct. Casey is on her own now. So are the Anthony family. The most important thing that we all must do is to avoid them. Boycott any press or media involving them. Of course let the networks and advertisers and publishers know. Let us all give the A's the privacy that they desire-COMPLETE PRIVACY. Let us forget they exist. If we stop feeding into the media frenzy it will stop. I turned off the coverage of the case soon after the verdict and I urge you all to do so too. Tonight with my heart filled with sadness I will say a prayer for Caylee Marie and tomorrow move on to a family that needs my help.

I predict time served or 6 months for the other charges.

Thursday she gets credit for time served and walks out the door with JB. She has to get a sentence in line with what other defendants with the same first time offender (she was not a convict at the time she was charged) received for the same crime.

No way she is not out by the end of the week. And the jury saying they wanted a motive or saying they discussed the case is irrelevant at this point. It would be the basis for a possible mistrial had she been convicted, but she was acquitted, she can announce in graphic detail how she killed her now, you can't unwind that clock.

Having seen a fair number of high-profile trials, when the announcement came today that the jury had reached a verdict, I felt very confident, much more so than I ever had in other cases, that there would be a conviction. In my mind, it was only a question of whether ICA would be convicted of first degree murder or manslaughter.

Like most of you, I was completely shocked and stunned at the verdict. I am still in a state of disbelief. In other cases I've seen, I might have been able to attribute an acquittal to serious mistakes made by the prosecution, or an extremely capable defense team ... but not in this instance. JA, LDB and FG did an outstanding job, and the DT was rather weak, IMO (though I will say their closing arguments were surprisingly strong).

This is all the more infuriating to me, as survivor of a family violence incident that very nearly took my life, and as a heartbroken mother who had to deal with this matter in court over the protestations and machinations of a certain family member who behaved eerily like CA. Long story that I won't go into here, but suffice it to say, truth is indeed stranger than fiction.

I strongly believe that the intense media coverage surrounding the A case helped contribute to the gross miscarriage of justice that we saw unfold today. I understand why interest in this case has been so great (It certainly grabbed my attention the day Caylee's disappearance made national news), but in the end, I believe the nonstop sensationalistic coverage also contributed to the questionable quality of jurors who were ultimately selected to decide this case. I also believe, due to the increasing prevalence of crime shows, that we are starting to see a "CSI effect," where more potential jurors expect the "smoking gun" of DNA, finger prints, etc. (without the need to resort to the mental effort of piecing together the parts of a circumstantial case), and more potential criminals are starting to figure out how to better cover their tracks.

I do not believe the system worked in this instance. At least for high-profile cases, I think we need to seriously consider the use of professional juries - not just limited to attorneys, but also open to those who are willing to become educated re: legal processes.

What sickens me most of all, is the likelihood that ICA, CA and the jurors in this case will profit handsomely from book deals and continued media coverage of this controversial acquittal. If even 5% of people continue to tune in to the news media concerning this case, I believe that could still translate into large sums of money for these people (at least over the short term). For whatever it's worth, I will have no part in this. As I said earlier, I AM DONE. I will not watch any more coverage of this case, and I will not be buying anyone's book. I will focus my efforts on helping other victims of crime, and I will go back to doing all of the things that I love - especially dancing! Life is just too short ...

ETA: I do take some comfort that ICA's life will never be quite the same. Like OJ, she will be in a prison of sorts, always having to watch her back, being shunned by most everyone, and I also agree that it's only a matter of time before she commits another crime. If I were GA, I'd move out of that house, pronto. ICA and CA deserve each other. Maybe that's what the jury thought, too ...

I followed the Casey Anthony case since July 2008 when she failed to report her daughter missing after 31 days. We had just got back from Florida and my son was the same age as her murdered daughter Caylee. I was drawn to the case since then. To not report a missing child for 31 days - unbelievable. I have spent endless hours reading the evidence that came out through Florida's sunshine laws, gone over everything out their including this board. I am devastated and disgusted that Casey got away with murdering her innocent child. I have been crying for the last two hours - work this afternoon was a blur. I pray the jury will beat their chests and cry bitter tears when they go home and realize what they have done. Hell has a special place for people like Casey Anthony.

And while I do believe she thought about it many times before actually doing it, I could see that charge as the ONLY charge coming back not guilty. The other counts though.....it was proven beyond a reasonable doubt in my opinion, so what the hell happened????? I am sickened by this "justice system" tonight.

I haven't been a posting member here or anywhere for a long, long time, as my own life is so far from perfect in the last two years that I have not been able to indulge myself with anything other than just hoping my own little family gets by, BUT I have to put this somewhere tonight, so here goes.
Nothing would surpise me about Casey Anthony from what I have learned in the past few years. Nothing she would say or do would cause me to gasp. It is not her allegations, actions or statements that have caused me such dismay as it is only to be expected from someone who I consider depraved, selfish and evil.
My shock and education during this trial has been in witnessing the level her defense team sank to in order to win this case. This is a big thing for me as I have always resented seeing people or hearing people call lawyers names, put them down etc. I have always believed in our system that guarantees everyone the right to counsel. I always could put myself in their shoes, and think, well I can't be smug or superior because what if someone I love did something terrible? I am not saying I would want them to get off scot free, but I would want them to have good counsel, so that however it turned out, there would be a sense that the chips had fallen as they were supposed to. However what I have witnessed here has shaken me to my foundation. I guess I am sheltered, but I truly have never witnessed in my life or on televised trials, or even in my reading on such subjects, a lawyer who got up and was so ruthless, damning, and destructive to victims as Jose Baez. I was so sickened that I felt cheated out of watching this trial in it's entirety as I literally felt ill when he was talking to the point of having to tune out. I knew as I did this, it was ignorant if I wanted to be truly informed at the end of this trial, but that is how strongly he has affected me. He seems very proud of himself, but I am ashamed of him. May the Lord forgive him because I won't, and I know little Caylee is in heaven right now with all this left behind, but today was a sad day for her little memory here. I am finished, and thanks for listening.

on a personal level, as an abuse survivor, the verdict feels like a slap in the face to me. child abuse goes unpunished so frequently. i don't care if ICA was an angelic mom to caylee the rest of the time (which i highly doubt anyway), those pieces of duct tape amount to horrific child abuse which ended in her death, and it doesn't matter. if we truly knew the number of abusive parents out there right this moment who will never be held accountable for their actions, we would probably keel over from how bad we felt about it. i'm having a hard time processing all this today. :sick:

We have all invested so much time here discussing the case, going over the evidence, talking things through and praying for justice. Sadly, it wasn't enough. All that it took to create reasonable doubt was some lies told by the DT. It's not right, but it happens everyday. We all must accept the verdict and move on in our lives broken heart and all. It will do none of us any good to keep rehashing the case, wondering where it went wrong.
My son came home from work today and ask me what happened, what went wrong. He had heard the verdict on the radio. Naturally, I started ranting and raving on about the lies and how a murderer will walk away with time served. He stopped me and said "Mom, that girl will never have a peaceful day in her life. Its ruined. People will hassle her and call her names. She will have no friends and who would hire her for a job? She will have to live in fear for her life for quite some time over this verdict too." Then he said " Mom, what if it were really an accident or what if her dad was in on it or what if she just downright killed her baby? We will NEVER know the truth. The truth is something that Casey has to live with the rest of her life". And my son is correct. Casey is on her own now. So are the Anthony family. The most important thing that we all must do is to avoid them. Boycott any press or media involving them. Of course let the networks and advertisers and publishers know. Let us all give the A's the privacy that they desire-COMPLETE PRIVACY. Let us forget they exist. If we stop feeding into the media frenzy it will stop. I turned off the coverage of the case soon after the verdict and I urge you all to do so too. Tonight with my heart filled with sadness I will say a prayer for Caylee Marie and tomorrow move on to a family that needs my help.

WOW!! That is some son you have. Thank you for sharing that with us. How old is he?

Out of the mouth of babes. There really is hope for us all if a young man has this much insight into the life Casey will be leading. Might be that karma that so many have spoken of today.
