I've always believed in our justice system. This was one of the reasons that I am so proud to be an American.

Not anymore. I'm just sick over this. This was the most unjust verdict that I've ever heard.

I've always wanted to serve in a trial and I happen to have just been assigned jury duty on 8/8/11. I am going to send my notification back and will write in that I do not wish to serve on it because I do not believe in the system. Of course, I will show up when I am supposed to but I will maintain my belief that I do not have faith in the system. I am pretty sure they'll excuse me.

I really am sick about this. :sick:

This is proof our system doesn't work. How awful. How sad. And now will begin the triumph of that evil evil defense team. I will watch nothing these people are on. I bet Baez has a profitable interview with Geraldo lined up for Casey to set her up in her new life as a media star. This is so so very wrong.

I completely agree. My heart actually hurts. I have two daughters whom I would lay down my life to protect, and that's the kind of mother Caylee deserved.

who knew?

I am in shock! Karma will come quickly - who wants a child-killer as a friend, a spouse... a daughter. Life will be hard.

My heart is breaking all over for Caylee.

I am beyond words. Our justice system is very broken. I'm completely heartbroken right now for a little girl named Caylee.

IMO, a cold blooded murderer will be walking free in a couple of days. I think her sentence will be time served and she'll walk free. Unbelievable.

I will never forget you Caylee. You will be in my thoughts everyday when I look at my own kids.

My heart is broken. I have lost all faith in people. No, Caylee will not rest. This murderer will be out with time served, and will now on the nearest pole living the life she wanted without Caylee. OMG I'm sick to my stomach. WTF was wrong with this jury? Duct tape, in a swamp, partying, someone please tell me how this happened

God,where were you today...poor Caylee deserved SOOOO much better.....my heart is shattered into a million pieces

Another OJ moment... can't help feeling that sequestration of Juries leads to them punishing the system.

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.

Thank you for starting this thread. I thought the SA did a very good job of presenting their case. I am not sure why the jury came to this conclusion. I just can't understand this verdict. I am still in shock and cannot completely process what has just happened...that the jury found the Casey not guilty. This wasn't about Casey, it was about Caylee and this jury has done a grave injustice to Caylee.

THIS is why jury systems should forever be abolished. Peers should never judge. Only Judges should, after years of study and exemplary behavior.

I am just sick. just sick.

I don't know what happened here. I've read that sequestration does strange things to juries, but maybe that's just a coincidence.

But don't give up on the system. I've been on two juries (one acquittal, one conviction) and both functioned quite well.

It's hard for us to imagine what the jury heard without all the extra noise we were getting and the discussions we were having when the jurors were forced to remain silent.

I am shocked and appalled. It's like the OJ verdict all over again. I thought for sure she'd get manslaughter at the very least. But...nothing??

Now what will happen? Book deal? Media tour? Will George and Cindy take her back into their home?

I just came in, flipped on the TV after driving home, unaware there was any type of verdict coming.

I saw the "not guilty" runner on the bottom of the TV, and I fell to my knees and burst into tears. I feel physically sick to my stomach.

Cindy was smiling.

07-05-2011, 03:02 PM
Absolutely sick. I don't understand how the jurors could look at pictures of Caylee's skull with duct tape on it and just let someone walk for that disgusting crime. I guess they believed she drowned and George dumped her. Go figure. Sequestration is not good. I wonder how many of them lost their nads to vote on their convictions because they just wanted out of there.

Linda and Jeff-

I don't know what to say. They must be the only ones more stunned than we are. God bless them both.

The unfairness and disgust is literally making my mouth completely dry. How can somebody do the wrong thing and get rewarded for it? REWARDED?

People are going to be crazed and angry about this. I won't be surprised if there is vigilante justice taken. A 2 year old baby murdered. And nothing happens to the guilty.

I have been unable to get on the thread. Sick. Sick to my stomach. Completely opposite of what I predicted. I could not have been more wrong. Listening to the verdict was like a dream - a nightmare. Even the clerk was horrified. Her voice shook as she read it.

Now casey, the sociopath, who killed her kid in part because she didn't want to work, will get book deals, interview money, a movie deal, etc. She won't have to work.

I am stunned and very, very saddened. It is not justice.

Unfortunately things like this have happened in the past and will happen again.
Your average citizen has NO business being on a jury. They don't understand the complex nature of the U.S. criminal law. Does anyone remember how much crap Judge Perry read to them before they went off to deliberate? I was confused and I think I understand the law pretty well. I guess they felt it was "easier" for them to find her not guilty and then to find her guilty. If that makes any sense. Boy did they pick some geniuses on that jury.

07-05-2011, 03:18 PM
What a great country we live in. Land of opportunity. Casey, no longer ICA, will never have to work a day in her life and is going to be a multimillionaire. Her father and Roy Kronk's reputations are destroyed. She has her "beautiful life."

And NO I did not base my opinion that she is guilty on the media as the elder member of the DT may think, thank you very much. I haven't turned on a TV in years. I pored through every document, watched every video, read every FBI report, and even read all the emails and letters.

HHJP will respect the jury and sentence her to time served.

I am in shock. I have followed this case from the beginning. I am appalled at the outcome. I believe KC got away with murder. At this time I cannot comprehend how the jury arrived at this verdict. Someone in my personal life recently was found culpable in a civil case (which I thought ought to have been tried as a criminal case). He filed and was granted voluntary bankruptcy. This individual was given, through the court system, the freedom to swindle a kind and caring individual out of $200,000 and will continue (as he has for twenty plus years) to prey upon other unsuspecting individuals. I humbly believe the U.S. Courts do uphold the laws of the country but unfortunately cannot and do not always discover truth and dispense justice. Casey Anthony's not guilty verdict, I believe, supports this reality.

The saddest part of this verdict is that it happens everyday all over our country. Children don't matter in this society and in this system. I'm sick at heart. Poor Caylee.

This jury will be responsible for the next victim(s) of Casey Anthony.

Hope they can live with it, because she's a sociopath and there WILL be another victim.

My head is pounding. I do not understand this at all. Why? How does it not come across as murder? It makes no sense. How can they believe she is not guilty? What if it is because of JBs lie in opening statement.

Sick to my stomach!! Where will ICA go? she will always have the I before her name as far as I'm concerned. Poor GA , or maybe not--- he needs to get out of that house now.

Those 12 cowardly beings couldn't even show face and discuss their decision. This is mind boggling. I cannot wrap my mind around any scenario that they could have all unanimously found her not guilty on all the murder charges. I cannot believe HHJP let the verdict stand. I was so wrong about him. He had the choice to override and he chose not to. Has our world really come to the point that nobody but a handful of people will stand up for what's right? I am not proud to be an American today.

I may get tossed off of here. Not sure. Don't mean to be rude. But this jury didn't have 3 brain cells to rub together. How could they possibly come to this decision. I was listening to some info about them and it seems that many have been involved with the law themselves. DUI's, beating a family member, and several other crimes. How did the prosecution let them on the jury??

Thanks for your insight from being on a jury in the past. I'm glad that your experience was a good one.

The thing that I can't get over is that SINCE (not if) the jury was 100% wrong and have found ICA not guilty of murdering Caylee when ALL of the evidence points straight to her I have to also admit that juries must have also been wrong the other way. That means that innocent people must have been convicted with our justice system. That is something that I can NOT and will not ever choose to be a part of. Ever.

Followed it on CNN tonight over here and I am in tears. Didn't want to get drawn in, but I was though I didn't post. Am sick for Caylee, she did not have justice.
But I think, even though Casey will get the interviews and the deals, she will just want to party and won't be smart with the money. Eventually she'll go through it and then discover that the media have moved on from her. Don't know when or how, but I'm certain we'll hear about her being in front of a judge again.

How in the world can the these people live their lives after this horrible choice they've made??? It's been a really long time since I've hurt this bad. It makes me SICK to have to look at her! Watching Baez hug her after the verdict is disgusting! It will take a very long time to get over the disgust and hurt I feel right now. The only justice in this case is... In the end, God WILL find her guilty of murdering Caylee.

I heard that Cindy was smiling. I saw George & he didn't look happy. They actually left while the judge was addressing the jury. Does anyone think they will welcome her home? This is just jaw dropping. I kind of understood the OJ verdict because of the celebrity & the racial tensions in LA. But KC was an unknown & there was no other issue concerning her race, etc. I mean, HOW do they explain the 31 days? The stealing from her friend, mother, grandparents? Constant shopping at Target, the video store the VERY DAY Caylee supposedly died? The tattoo? The jailhouse call Linda played? I mean, come on!! What a huge WASTE of time sequestering this jury. They obviously didn't look at anything! I can't even watch any of the stations covering it in fear I will have to listen to Baez gloat & see KC smiling & laughing knowing she got away with murder! So the answer is to lie unabashedly!! Un-freaking-believable!!!!!!

What SHOCKS me is that they didn't even find her guilty of the lesser murder charges. I AM FEELING SICK. I bet the prosecution AND Judge Perry are feeling sick. 12 jurors who probably got in wanting to find her not guilty. That is the only explanation I can find. 12
Stealth jurors. The ones who were HONEST admitted that they thought she was guilty. These 12 jurors fooled us all.

Do we know anything about which juror was the foreman? I wonder if there wasn't one or two that bullied the others into their decision. My husband is a very forceful personality and just for joy or arrogance has served on a few juries and was only one or two with a particular view and bullied the rest into going with his decision. If the rest were tired an sick of the whole thing and did not realize the gravity of the public perception they might have just caved to get it over with.

I dunno.

I am sick right now. Anyone want to join me in a glass of wine? I am having one, to calm my nerves. I will never understand how in the world in Florida it's ok to chloroform, duct tape and drive around with your daughters rotting corpse until it stinks so much you chunk it into the woods for animals to chew on.

I hope this doesn't get me a time out. I will delete if necessary.

Can Judge Perry overturn this verdict?

Is there any hope?

If he had the power to give death on murder 1 if the jury voted against it, can he overturn this verdict completely?

I am holding out about 1% hope on something that I noticed as Judge Perry was reading the rulings in front of ICA and JB. I noticed that when he read the 1st degree murder finding of the jury he looked up and said "At this time, I will adjudicate you not guilty" - that was the ONLY time he said that. He didn't say it before any of the other charges.

Does anyone think that maybe, just maybe Judge Perry might be able to correct this unjust verdict? I truly believe that Judge Perry knows the jury got it wrong. If ever there were a judge who would stand up and say the jury was wrong, I think it could be Judge Perry.

Is this possible? Or do you all think that I'm reading too much into what he said and just hanging on to any hope that may be left for justice to be served?

I know this doesn't make any sense, but I feel I've let Caylee down. What more could I've done? How many more prayers could I have said? Did I not wish hard enough for justice? I wanted her spirit to soar knowing that her death was avenged. Oh, Caylee...please forgive me.

I hope the jurors feel ashamed of their selves today. They were Caylees last chance at some sort of justice

The scales of justice are leaning heavily tonight

God Bless America but just who blesses the innocent American murdered child

They must feel ashamed because they refuse to speak to the media nor do they want their names revealed.
This is beyond sickening. Not Guilty My A$$!

I'm so stunned and sick that I can't even cry. I was crying when they said the verdict is in, but I can't even cry now. I'm numb and shell shocked.

By this weekend this child killer will be walking free and will soon be a wealthy woman. I wonder if she still has Tony's number? She can just pick right back up with her beautiful life. I wonder if Cindy is planning a chili dinner for her homecoming where no one speaks of it so as to not upset her?

I'm appalled and heartsick as well as physically sick.

What could this jury possibly be thinking? Who do they think killed Caylee and threw her in a ditch like garbage? They don't want to speak to the media. I don't blame them. I hate to be one to criticize a jury but they should be ashamed. I have to wonder if they just didn't want to deal with it anymore since they knew they'd have to serve more time for the penalty phase.

I just cannot believe it. Justice was not served today. It's a very dark day for justice.

I'm so sorry little Caylee. May you RIP in spite of your family and not receiving justice. Know that thousands of people will love and care for you forever.

I have so many questions...

I am holding out about 1% hope on something that I noticed as Judge Perry was reading the rulings in front of ICA and JB. I noticed that when he read the 1st degree murder finding of the jury he looked up and said "At this time, I will adjudicate you not guilty" - that was the ONLY time he said that. He didn't say it before any of the other charges.

Does anyone think that maybe, just maybe Judge Perry might be able to correct this unjust verdict? I truly believe that Judge Perry knows the jury got it wrong. If ever there were a judge who would stand up and say the jury was wrong, I think it could be Judge Perry.

Is this possible? Or do you all think that I'm reading too much into what he said and just hanging on to any hope that may be left for justice to be served?

Rip the bandaid off quick. I am in tears. No, HHJP respects this jury too much to overturn the verdict. She is walking.

Well, I guess you can get away with murder.
Casey Anthony has been adjudged not guilty but that in no way means innocent. These jurors got the sanitized version of this girls story. There is much they are unaware of. But that is how the system works.

Whilst personally gutted, I have to think these jurors followed the law and believed the defense had raised a reasonable doubt.

The name Casey Anthony will imo always be synonymous with OJ Simpson. She too got away with murder.

So sorry Caylee xxx

When they came back this fast, I knew they'd found her not guilty. I was afraid this would happen. I'm even willing to give them the benefit of the doubt until I re-look at those pictures of Casey partying it up for those 31 days. I just do not understand how that jury could see that behavior and believe she was mourning or it was an accident. The talking heads always say we have to respect the jury blah blah blah. I don't have to respect them and I don't.

I resign. From crime.

Until the Caylee/Casey Anthony case, I wasn’t a blogger or even a “true-crime advocate for justice”. This particular case, for like many of you, grabbed me somehow, stirred me, grasped my attention in a way no other case had; not Haleigh Cummings (though I was thoroughly interested in that one!), Kyron Horman (I dropped that one along with everyone else), Zahra Baker, Hailey Dunn and so on and so on and on.

Today’s verdict of “Not Guilty” was as stunning to me as O.J’s not guilty verdict and I’m resigning my interest in all of this madness from this day forward. I have devoted 3 years of my time, energy and emotions to this case and to be honest, it isn’t, wasn’t and will never be, worth it.

And Casey Anthony is going to walk. Free.

Even her lying to law enforcement will be rewarded, not punished but rewarded with time served for 4 misdemeanors. And being the model prisoner that she is, she’ll get the 4th year off for “good behaviour”. It’s enough to make me vomit.

I enjoyed being part of the Websleuths family, was delighted when Tricia got the radio show up and running on Blogtalk, the whole nine yards really.

But enough is enough, to quote Judge Perry. I am reclaiming my life and I will never get this involved in a crime case every again (though those that know me don’t believe me!).

I’m looking forward to losing the 12 lbs. I gained sitting on my arse, reading and contributing to blogs, and finally being rid of Nancy Grace.

Good luck to all of you dedicated, caring and devoted people who seek justice for those with no voice. I admire each and every one of you, enjoyed your comments and thoughts but I just cannot do it anymore.

I pray I don’t hear about the next child victim – or adult for that matter, because I have come to realise that what I think and feel doesn’t matter. Not one iota.

Best wishes to each and every one of you and God bless Judge Belvin Perry who tried his hardest and his very best to get justise for Caylee Marie Anthony. Who is now, nothing but dust - and even less than that to her own mother.

So sad, so very sad.

This bashing of the jury is sickening. They came to the conclusion they came to because all 12 of them didn't think the state proved their case. Juries are instructed to follow the law as instructed. It doesn't mean they think she didn't do anything, it just means to them, the state didn't prove she did.

Honestly, I'm surprised she didn't even get manslaughter or child abuse. The child died in her care. I thought that meant child abuse.

What a sad day in the USA. You can murder your kid, party for 31 days, throw her body in a trash dump, and then probably grow rich from talking about it.

I feel the same way. I've cried since the verdict. I turned off the TV and haven't watched since. I feel I've let Caylee down. How was this not enough? What more could have been done? People can just murder their children in Florida and get away with it?

For 3 years I've been with all of you on this board analyzing and talking and laughing and crying together. I'm really floored by this verdict. Maybe I'm too sensitive for this world.

My 14 year old daughter cried right along with me. How can the jury live with the choice they've made??? The only thing that will put my heart at ease is knowing that God will judge her! Like it says in my favorite bible verse... Jeremiah 29:11 " For I know the plans I have for you"...... God will hold her accountable for the murder of her child! I have more faith in God than anyone else. It's very sad that this happened but God has a reason for the decision that was made today.

I have been following ever since Nancy Grace covered it back in July of 2008 when it first started happening. I am just so shocked over this. I NEVER thought that she'd get off scott free. I didn't want her to get the DP because of George and Cindy Anthony going through so much but I at least thought she would get life in prison. I just cannot believe this. :grouphug:

Do we know anything about which juror was the foreman? I wonder if there wasn't one or two that bullied the others into their decision. My husband is a very forceful personality and just for joy or arrogance has served on a few juries and was only one or two with a particular view and bullied the rest into going with his decision. If the rest were tired an sick of the whole thing and did not realize the gravity of the public perception they might have just caved to get it over with.

I dunno.

I am sick right now. Anyone want to join me in a glass of wine? I am having one, to calm my nerves. I will never understand how in the world in Florida it's ok to chloroform, duct tape and drive around with your daughters rotting corpse until it stinks so much you chunk it into the woods for animals to chew on.

I hope this doesn't get me a time out. I will delete if necessary.

If that is what happened, then it is "peer pressure" at its "finest." I thought that myself. Some bully probably went into action, kowtowing the others into submission. Well, I'm one who would refuse to be bullied by fellow jurors. I don't mind standing against a thousand if I am convinced I am right and just in a stance. I cannot for the life of me imagine TWELVE PEOPLE unanimous on this! I've heard of jurors say, "Well, we all thought X was guilty, but we had to vote lesser because the state did not prove the case." I think that's a possiblity here, too.

I do have 1 more comment and then I may have to leave all the hub bub for a while as it makes me ill.

But one problem with this case was that the forensic evidence was poor. Cindy made sure of that by washing everything in the trunk and Casey made sure by lying for 31 days giving the body time to rot. There wasn't much left to prove she didn't anything but I still feel there was just as much as the Peterson case and her actions spoke louder than words. Its really a shame Cindy washed away so much evidence. I hear she was smiling big when they left the court. I bet she kicks George out and lets KC back home.

No one is going to pay to read or see the story of a person getting away with murder. No one is going to want to be associated with her. What man would want to risk even having a family with her? She may have be found guilty by this jury but in the court of public opinion she is still a child

I cannot wrap my mind around any scenario that they could have all unanimously found her not guilty on all the murder charges. I cannot believe HHJP let the verdict stand. I was so wrong about him. He had the choice to override and he chose not to. Has our world really come to the point that nobody but a handful of people will stand up for what's right? I am not proud to be an American today.

I have voiced a few times from start of trial IMHO that judge ruled in favor of defense...after today it was sealed for me.

I had my doubts that she would be found guilty of 1st degree murder but she should have been found guilty of SOMETHING!! Whether it was intentional or an accident, as a mother you are responsible for the well being of your children. If something happens to your child it is your job to do what you can to protect that child, in life and death. You cannot just dump your child like a piece of trash and continue on your life as if they didn't matter. At the very least it was a negligent homicide..

What happened today is part of our justice system.. It is flawed, as are all human related creations.. But just as is done with all of these human related creations when tbe flaws are found THEY ARE NOT IGNORED, or coVered for repair with say even some duct tape.. Those flaws are repaired, fixed, improved and with each flaw repaired and even improved the creation becomes a better working and functioning machine.. Our justice system is far from a well oiled, smooth working machine.. It's not even an adequate working machine.. Not when that machine has failed the most innocent of all human beings, failed the complete embodiment of all that is good and pure that we have left in this evil world.. When a completely innocent and very definition of defenseless in every single solitary way.. That Ill functioning machine has produced the ENTIRE OPPOSITE EVERYTHING THIS MACHINE HAS BEEN BUILT TO DO.. to see that justice is served!!!

Not only was justice NOT served..this most innocent and defenseless of all human life has been slaughtered in vain by zero fault of and at the murderous, self serving, and all emcompassing of the purest of evil that walks the face of this earth.. This baby GIRL's "mother".. Caylee today was proven to just not matter.. Lady justice who is not ONly blind but IMO broken.. This broken justice instead of producing the very thing of which it was created to produce.. JUSTICE!! Instead this broken machine that is our justice system null and voided the life of our most innocent and defenseless.. Our justice system instead rewarded/awarded a full embodied of nothing but blackness amd self serving evil!! A brutal murderer today was REWARDED/AWARDED FOR BEING A DAMN FINE AND EFFICIENT KILLER!!

RWARDED/AWARDED FOR BEING A MIGHTY FINE LIAR! skilled in the sheer artistry of the act of lying, conniving, deceiving!!

A victim of the murder of all murders at the hands of her very own flesh and blood mother!!! Caylee's pain filled, terror stricken, huge brown eyes and the last thing those eyes saw and were looking into was the face of evil, the face of a monster, her very own "mother"!!!!

That victim, Caylee her life was proven today to be of zero worth.. The monster that murdered WAS REWARDED/AWARDED FOR BEING A GREAT VICIOUS KILLER.. for doing one helluva bang up job In slaughtering her precious daughter, Caylee!!!! Rewarded for doing a bang up job of then chunking her tiny, lifeless body literally to the wolves to have their way with!!*

And that monster was REWARDED FOR SPENDING THOSE FOLLOWING 31DAYS PARTYING AMD CELEBRATING HER NOW BEAUTIFUL LIFE.. BELLA VITA!!!*

The broken and ill working machine of justice handed out top of the line AWARDS/REWARDS to a monster for doing a fabulous job of murdering a defenseless and helpless being, tossing her into the garbage, and lying, conniving, and wasting millions of dollars with her OSCAR Winning performance for lying and covering up that murder!!

The machine of justice is broken.. Severely flawed and if this is ignored, patched up with a little duct tape, and not fixed you can expect for more defenseless, innocent *life to be lost and that murderer to be awarded for doing a bang up job of murdering amd covering up the murder..*

Continue to ignore, but you better pray and pray hard that you or even one of your innocent, defenseless children NOT become one of these free walking, full embodiment of all that is evil murderers that we share our sidewalks with.. Pray to God you or your child not end up a victim of that evil and then to have the ill working machine of justice REWARD THE EVIL AND MONSTROUS MURDERER THAT YOU OR YOUR CHILD ARE THE VICTIM OF.. Unfixed, still broken, and extremely flawed machine of justice will too produce the result we have here to today.. Injustice and REWARDING ALL THAT IT IS EVIL..

No change, no demanding of improvements to this broken creation could soon be rewarding the murderer that slaughtered you or even your defenseless child.. That I can guarantee..

Today justice was not served and infact just the opposite a murdering, lying, conniving MONSTER was rewarded for being one helluva a mighty fine killer and a pathological liar..*
Evil won today and our flawed system produced that WIN!!

Casey is guilty. Who is there for Caylee? Caylee...we are. We don't know you. We love you.

I'm not religious. But my mom and I were texting each other after the verdict and I wrote her "I sure wish I could believe in heaven right now" and she said "trust me, there is a heaven" and I could only reply "at this point, I'll take your word for it".

Title of this thread is exactly how I'm feeling...

I am sick to my stomach and heartbroken for Caylee...no justice for her today. A travesty of justice; I have lost all my faith in the judicial system (at least today).

This jury must have suspended all logical thinking; not even aggravated child abuse or manslaughter. They bought all of Baez' and the DT's lies -- they had to in order to come to this verdict. How ironic -- now we have to watch the media scramble to interview Casey, make her and her DT rock stars so they can continue to lie about what happened? Lies upon lies upon lies... I am stunned and it will take me months to get over this injustice....

I think most of us feel the same way today. We feel sick, shocked, and heartbroken because of this verdict. We want to know why Caylee was taken away. Why did she suffer? And why is no one being made to pay for this hideous crime? We want life to be fair. We want to make it fair.

If you have faith that all things will eventually be made whole, then be patient. You know it's coming.

Otherwise, do what you can. Learn from this experience. Serve on a jury. Consider working with kids in foster care. Speak up if you see a child being mistreated. Think of all the things that could have gone differently in Caylee's life if only someone had done/said something sooner. It's not a waste. Feeling sick to your stomach and heartsick is good in a way. It means you're not a psychopath.

So this means in Florida a person can let their helpless 2 yearold go " missing" not report it...have her turn up murdered with the only evidence pointing at the mother...NOONE ELSE HAS BEEN IMPLICATED...and a murderer wAlks free. Outrageous! So then who the h#!! Did it? Did she duct tape her own mouth and bag herself up and lay down in a darn swamp to decompose? I have never seen such a miscarriage of justice. I am hearttbroken to say the least. That jury should be ashamed.

Those attorneys are going to want to keep her as close to them as they can - They all want to have one hand in her pocket (some of them more than others).

Whoever can keep her happy will get their share of the profits for sending this murderer back on the streets.

I wonder if she will move in with the good looking lawyer she was flirting with at the end. A girl like her will be looking for a good lay right off the bat.

I just can't get over the verdict and the fact that CA didn't really love Caylee as much as the act she put on when she was on the stand.

I'm at work trying not to cry and when I get home my husband just will not explanation my tears for a baby I never met. So I am glad to have others in the same spot, though saddened that we're here. How? How did this happen? What trial were they watching where Casey wasn't guilty of anything related to her death? I think the jury wanted to go home. The fact that not one was brave enough to speak is very telling. We need an explanation, and their decision defies explanation.

Am am sickened and heart broken over the injustice Caylee was served today. All I can think of as I had to step away for a while was Casey's next moves. Her basking in glory as she plays games with the news channels fighting for the first interview. The money she will make on those interviews, the books, etc. How much she will LOVE it when approached by movie directors and having her egotistical say in who will play her. The boob jobs, the new hair style, the shopping.

But what sent me over the edge was realizing that she was now free to again become pregnant and wonder how long it will be before she brings another life into this world to destroy again somehow. She is free to breed and that terrifies me. I can only imagine her saying she is doing it in Caylee's honor or some twisted sheet as that. Makes me ill.

My husband says that as hated as she is, she wont be on this earth long. One can hope fate will right wrongs in some manner...

What SHOCKS me is that they didn't even find her guilty of the lesser murder charges. I AM FEELING SICK. I bet the prosecution AND Judge Perry are feeling sick. 12 jurors who probably got in wanting to find her not guilty. That is the only explanation I can find. 12
Stealth jurors. The ones who were HONEST admitted that they thought she was guilty. These 12 jurors fooled us all.

She will have the same type of life O.J. did and we know how that has turned out. He did not get book or movies deals. No one is going to pay to read or see the story of a person getting away with murder. No one is going to want to be associated with her. What man would want to risk even having a family with her? She may have be found guilty by this jury but in the court of public opinion she is still a child
killer. It is what it is.


I think the most Casey will get is a book deal. As for movie deals I doubt it. I don't even think Lifetime would be stupid enough to get involved with the Anthonys. Movie studios, screenwriters and producers wouldn't waste money making movies about this case. Casey's reputation will always be tarnished. Many people will not want to associate with her because they would always be questioning if she did it or not. Also her accusations against Lee and George will never be proven and I can people wanting stay away with her because of those possibly false accusations.

I feel absolutely sick over it too! I wish I had a Valium or Xanax right now because I really feel like I need one.

I had my doubts that she would be found guilty of 1st degree murder but she should have been found guilty of SOMETHING!! Whether it was intentional or an accident, as a mother you are responsible for the well being of your children. If something happens to your child it is your job to do what you can to protect that child, in life and death. You cannot just dump your child like a piece of trash and continue on your life as if they didn't matter. At the very least it was a negligent homicide..


Wasn't she initially charged with child neglect just for "leaving her with a babysitter that kidnapped her?" In the same line of thought, shouldn't she have been found guilty of the manslaughter charges for her "accidental death and the cover-up?"

Another OJ moment... can't help feeling that sequestration of Juries leads to them punishing the system.

Yeah, I imagine the jurors might begin to identify with the defendant after being isolated from normal human contact for awhile. And also feel less interest in rendering a verdict that they know reflects what most people want.

So frustrating!

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.

I am in shock like the rest of you. One thing that keeps popping into my head is something a lawyer friend said to me after the OJ trial:
"Not guilty is simply a legal term. It means the evidence did prove guilt to the jury beyond a reasonable doubt. It DOES NOT mean innocent."

I will continue to pray that justice is somehow served.

I've always believed in our justice system. This was one of the reasons that I am so proud to be an American.

Not anymore. I'm just sick over this. This was the most unjust verdict that I've ever heard.

I've always wanted to serve in a trial and I happen to have just been assigned jury duty on 8/8/11. I am going to send my notification back and will write in that I do not wish to serve on it because I do not believe in the system. Of course, I will show up when I am supposed to but I will maintain my belief that I do not have faith in the system. I am pretty sure they'll excuse me.

I really am sick about this. :sick:

I feel the same way you do. NO justice for Caylee:(
Did you see CA smile when they read the not guilty verdict?
I dont know why, I dont know this family but I have learned there are some very sick, dysfunctional people out there.
If GA lets this horrible daughter move back in then I will really lose respect for him after she tried to use HIM to save herself from this mess she created. I couldve never done that to my Dad and now everyone will look at him strangely. (because of Casey accusations)
I just feel so sorry for Caylee, being tossed into that swamp and didnt even live to her 3rd birthday. :(
Its like no one cares. But I want nothing to do with the "justice" system from now o. Its a joke. ALL she got charged with was lying to LE?????:banghead:

I called my 16 year at home and told her to watch the verdict, she has not followed the case other than what I have told her about it. About 15 minutes after the verdict she sent me a text that said "mom I cannot stop crying". Not realizing she was talking about that verdict, I said "why whats wrong?" She said "that poor baby girl". I about lost it when I got the text! It is a sad sad day in Florida and through out the United States when someone can get away with something so henious, especially when there is such a large amount of evidence.

I am sick with the American justice system, where we let child murders walk free. The system is not working. Taxpayers helped her get off scott free and put up over 300,000 to help her do so. I am in tears.

I am shocked that I am shocked.
Throughout this case I have said time and time again that nothing would surprise me at this point. We have seen all levels of horrifying behavior from Casey, from her parents, from observers who inserted themselves in a story they had no legitimate role in, and all levels of ridiculous behavior from her legal team.

I was convinced nothing could shock me.
But ten hours? There was not one person in that room that said "are you kidding me??!!!????". They reviewed no evidence, asked for no clarification, and clearly didn't even have a heated debate.

Honestly will not be surprised when we are treated to a reality show documenting the marriage of Casey and JB, her pursuit of a being a paralegal, and the joy of their first born child.

Thursday she will walk with time served.
I am disgusted by the jury and embarassed by our system.

I respectfully beg to differ (on the bolded part), but that's a separate issue I think. I would explain, but I'm too busy picking my jaw up off the floor, where it fell when they read the verdict. :waitasec: IMO, age has nothing to do with the value of a life, and I think that most people might agree in theory but not in practice.

I started out (at beginning of trial) having no opinion whatsoever about Casey's guilt, but was completely convinced by the end. I really thought that if I could be convinced, anyone could. Sigh.

I posted my response below on another thread and just cut and paste below because I am too upset to retype it again...

-------------------------------------------
And we can see the continual downfall and dumbing down of America and it's judicial system. 12 morons allowed a baby killer to walk free. They make the O.J. jurors look brilliant.

I can only wish that Casey Anthony will get what's coming to her within a week from the day she walks out of jail. Or better yet, I hope that HHJP does not allow the possible 4 years to be served concurrently. If she only has to serve 6 months it will be in general population and I hope that they deal with KC in the same manner that the inmates dealt with Jeffrey Dahmer.

I predict that CA and GA will divorce soon. She will want to allow KC to move back home and GA doesn't want to be near KC. Hopesprings Drive will become a circus again. All of the Anthonys will become the town pariahs. Hopefully HHJP will charge her with perjury.

May KC and the cowardly jurors that would not even face the public to give reasoning how they allowed a precious baby to be murdered, disposed of like trash and suffer no penalty or punishment, never have a day of peace again and have to live with the public's displeasure in them.

I am so disgusted with what I see in this country. Low life reality stars get paid millions where hardworking, educated people struggle to make ends meet and keep a roof over their heads.

Casey won't have to worry about working another day of her life. She will make millions selling her story to People Magazine and going on every television show that will take her and sell the rights to her story to book publishers and movie studios.

Yep...we should be proud Americans.

Even though in the depths of my heart, I know that it is not His fault, I let God know that I was deeply disappointed in Him today -- that He let Satan rule and that Angels of the Lord did not give protect or give Caylee justice today. She is not resting in peace. I will not be watching any t.v. for the next month, until this story dies down. To see these THs, especially LKB, who, moments before the verdict was read said that she thought that the jury was going to give KC the death penalty, I can't stomach.

My heart is crushed today and must reconcile it in my head and move on.

I told my DH, if it was my child that was killed, and this was the justice that his killer got, I would be in jail tonight for killing everyone on the jury and his killer. :maddening:

I can only hope that Zanaida Gonzales wins an enormous, huge ridiculously high verdict in her defamation case. At least that way maybe Casey won't be able to profit from Caylee's death.

She still has the IRS to answer to.

No matter, though, she'll soon be a wealthy woman.

Lesson learned... The state of Florida just legitimized the killing of innocent toddlers. So long as they hide their little bodies long enough to completely decompose and they can blame it on 'imaginary' sexual abuse. Expect a rise in this type of defense since it works.

I was listening to some info about them and it seems that many have been involved with the law themselves. DUI's, beating a family member, and several other crimes. How did the prosecution let them on the jury??

I agree, I thought it was odd that criminals serve on a jury. I don't think that makes for a very fair system. How are we to expect criminals to deliver justice to other criminals? :banghead:

I was mostly a lurker here but I followed closely. I am so disgusted and upset right now. All I can do is hug my kids and worry about the world I helped bring them into. I feel this has now taught people that all you have to do to get away with murder is to lie and buy time. I also feel that a big part of the not guilty verdict is that the jurors just wanted to go back home. I feel that the system is broken and I hope that this case at least helps bring about some much needed changes.

I have been a lurker on here for this case for a while now, but now I would like to put my own opinion in as the verdict is finally over.

I don't believe she is completely innocent, but I don't think she is the one who murdered Caylee. For a while now I've believed it was Tony having a big part in it and being the actual killer. Something is not right about him. And if you read the document of the IM conversation between them (source: http://media.myfoxorlando.com/photogalleries/092608instantmessages/indexGallery.htm), he ALWAYS referred to Caylee as the "offspring" referred to Zanny as "the offspring handler". He always seemed to not want Caylee around when she came over. Although Casey is an adult and can make her own decisions I could very much see Tony having a lot of say in what was done to Caylee. Even in the police interviews with Tony he stutters a lot and corrects himself. Something always didn't seem right about him to me from the very beginning. If you haven't already, read the IM conversation. Makes you wonder what Tony had to do with the death of Caylee. Also don't forget the tape played back in court yesterday of Casey demanding to have Tony's phone number. WHY would she so desperately need to talk to him?

Please remember, all this is just MOO.

I didn't know this. So is it Florida or this whole country that would do this?

I'm a felon (I got in trouble when I was younger) and I still get called about every 3 years for jury duty, I'm in Iowa.

This is just unbelievable. I can not believe this jury. I feel like I am stuck in a bad nightmare.

I wish I could say that what Casey did to Caylee will haunt her for the rest of her life but sadly... it will not bother her at all. Nothing will bother her.

I keep thinking... how how... how can we go back and get a guilty verdict. Now I am only praying that maybe the jury was paid off. I know, I know highly unlikely but it would be just as much as a miracle than it was for Casey walking away with murder.

~Love for Caylee~

p.s I am not bitter or anything (cough cough) but I hope that one juror leaving on her wonderful vacation... has a terrible time!

I don't think this jury cared about guilt or innocense. They just wanted to go home. Half of them didn't want on the jury. Some were going on vacation. Better to let a killer go home than convict. I don't know how they live with themselves but maybe something bad will happen to them and they will get no satisfaction.

The sick part of this is I think Casey's life will be fine. She will become rich off of this, find a new crowd of friends. I bet even find a handsome husband. Many weird people love killers and convicts. They are alot of people in the world that will latch on to her. I doubt she will get any ill affects from this. And the dad will be kicked out and mom will help her to continue her life of crime that she got away with for years and still gets away with. She stole 100s of checks etc and didnt' get any time for it. She knows she can get away with her life of crime, even murder.

I don't know what happened here. I've read that sequestration does strange things to juries, but maybe that's just a coincidence.

But don't give up on the system. I've been on two juries (one acquittal, one conviction) and both functioned quite well.

It's hard for us to imagine what the jury heard without all the extra noise we were getting and the discussions we were having when the jurors were forced to remain silent.

Weren't we all listening to the same trial? Didn't we all hear what the jury heard. Something is very wrong here!!!

In all seriousness, how long do you think before she is spotted partying?

I predict the 1st night she spends outside jail.

At first I thought, "Heck, yeah, if I got away with murder you bet I would party!" But then I realized that I'd be more likely to become the most reformed sinner ever in an effort to do penance for what I'd know I'd done. But then I realized that that's because I have respect for the law and a conscience, which it seems Casey doesn't necessarily have.

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!

What little faith I had in our so called justice system has just got up & went. There is something seriously wrong when 12 people cannot provide justice to a 2 year old child who did not ask to be brought into this world & who's life was cut short by the one person she should have been able to count on for protection and unconditional love. I hope I never receive a jury summons, because I will tell them that I do not believe in the US justice system & therefore would certainly not make a good jury member.

I pray that all the people around the world who have fallen in love with beautiful Caylee Anthony will never spend a penny on anything that would bring any form of profit to this vile excuse for a human being who will soon be walking among us.

I pray that Caylee will one day have the justice she so deserves when her murderer stands before her maker.

I pray for Caylee to rest in peace with the knowledge that someday her murderer will pay for taking her life.

I'm so sorry Caylee.

My charges were related to auto theft (I boosted cars when I was a kid).
I was asked several times what my record was for and have never been seated on a Jury, the defense throws me off.
You are right that I cannot vote, or own a firearm. I always thought it was a bit weird myself that I could decide someones future in a court of law, but not vote for a future elected official.

I no longer believe in our system. There is something broken when DT are all about 'wins' and not the truth. How is this a "fair trial" ??? Fair to whom??? It's trial by confusion based on lies. Shame on anyone who can do this for a living and sleep at night. Defend a person to what is fair, NOT what you can help them get away with ---that would be a just system, not what we saw today.

Doubt it. The OJ jury didn't give a @(*#)(!

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.

Liberty for Casey and no justice at all for Caylee Marie. I was so sure that the verdict would be guilty, without quiestion, guilty. So, now I wonder how honest were the jurors when they voted to let ICA walk. How could they ignore the evidence? There's something wrong. To quote CA, "There's something wrong!".

I want to SCREAM so loud right now. How could they, with ALL the evidence come back with Not Guilty? HOW?? Did they not look at anything? Did they not listen in the trial? Were they so pi—ed that they had to serve that they each decided to find her Not Guilty?

Caylee, I am so sorry you did not get justice today for your murder that your mother did to you. I am so sorry you will have to be in “Cold Case Limbo” from now on with my grandparents and many others who have been let down because of our justice system.

I would like to find out just who they are and send them each a letter of utter and extreme disappointment. They let Caylee down. There are truely "Tears in Heaven" right now. Sorry Caylee we tried...we all tried! I have once again lost faith in the justice system. No justice for that poor innocent child. Perhaps putting that murderer back on the streets was justified...we all know her now..we know her lies...we know her habits. In such a world with social media she will never be able to hide. I hope and pray she gets what she deserves. After all someone could just claim it "was an accident that snowballed out of control" and they will surely get away with murder.

It sounds to me like they knew they weren't going to agree on the murder charges. But no one wanted to be sequestered any longer. So they agreed to just say she's not guilty but convict her on the lying to police charges. What a bunch of cowards. I am so sick and upset right now. I figured she might get less than LWOP, but I NEVER saw this coming. I'm going to have to avoid my television for awhile now as I'm sure the defense and Casey will milk this for all it's worth. I'm sure CA will start her Casey tour of innocence as well. This is just sick and maddening. I still can't believe it.
