Her mommy was mean to her, called her names, so Casey went wild and killed her baby? Not buying it.
Her daddy sexually abused her so she brought her infant daughter into that house for daddy to abuse? So Casey killed the baby? Not buying it.
Let these jurors hear the words from Casey's own mouth via recordings from jail and jailhouse videotape and they'll see the same person we see.
All anyone cares about is Caylee.
It's not so much HOW she killed her daughter but that she did and she's the only one who could have done it. The jurors will be horrified hearing (many probably hearing again) how casually she went about living her life after her daughter was no longed visible to anyone, how the baby was stuffed into the trunk, how she was bagged and tossed into the woods!
DP or LWOP, either is a win for the state, at least this person will finally be punished.
People say there's no real evidence, I say bull. The evidence they found in the beginning told them the child was dead long before they had the body/remains. The only thing they don't have is the HOW, and that's not needed.

I can't give a number for this jury. I feel ICA will be convicted, but will not get the death penalty from this jury. I see LWOP for her.
**May God Watch Over All Missing and Abused Children**
I would give them a 8. Baez probably managed to get a jury that won't vote unanimous on the DP, but I would would be happy with LWOP. Because in Florida, that's exactly what she'll get. ICA is young and healthy,she can sit there and have the rest of her life to scribble on a legal pad.
After watching/listening to the whole jury selections.
I give them all a 10....
it was a tough selection with all the motions/all the strikes/etc..
hoping for a successful seating..they ain't outta the woods yet till they are
all in there seats...
#3...1055[ the one the whole court liked but Casey was jealous of and had a fight with blank over]
#4...1319 [ defense wants this "CHURCH LADY'
#1...was # 61 now #1 # 3093
#2..was #69 now 3170
I missed some information
so please correct where needed.
I have to see the article about their occuopations or lack of...
I tried to write numbers down but missed some .
I do recall some that I liked during questioning.
Those ones most of them...
seemed very truthful and seemed
like they are well suited for this job..
good luck to each and everyone of them.
when they smell the can of decomp...
GOD BE WITH THEM...
it will be a smell they will never forget.
#789UMCO unidentified found The victim was discovered on September 8, 2004 in the Flat Tops, White River National Forest, Garfield County, Colorado
Estimated Date of Death: No longer than 5 years prior to discovery he left a note to "LIB"
PLEASE HELP me find out who this unidentified person is so he can be buried rightfully near his family...
I DO NOT TOLERATE HARASSMENT...
I think we have an 8 here as far as scale.
IMO, juror #1319, will either not make it through all the testimony, evidence etc or if she does she won't "judge" ICA but will allow the state to.
I think the defense shot themselves in the foot with her. Honestly, if she feels she can examine the evidence and judge on the evidence vs what the law says...she has a lot of respect for law and order. If she is a devoted Christian she has a high regard for authority and for obeying authority and for that authority to have power and use it.
I don't think she would be against punishment for a crime and will give the state the sword so to speak.
Sitting. on. hands.
I would give the jurors a 10 for having to take two months out of their life.
I give the overall jury a 7 as far as ability to convict, and yes it's because of juror 1319 that SA LDB thinks could hang the jury.
I think if there is not a hung jury there will be a 6-6 split on LWOP vs DP and HHJP will have to break the tie vote.
I can see JP giving Casey the DP.
I believe it is him who has the final say. I would not be happy if Casey got LWOP.
She will most likely not be in Gen. Pop but isolated from all the other inmates;
She's THRIVING in jail and I have no doubt she'll be thriving in Prison too.
She's not going to think of Caylee EVER. In Prison she'll be another version of Susan Smith getting perks and privlages.
I think True Punishment for Casey is on Death Row where she will have NO interaction with anyone.
Let her suffer on Death Row, cause God knows she will not be suffering with LWOP.
This jury could very well surprise us and give Casey the DP. I don't care if they commute her sentence to LWOP as long as they hand down the DP verdict.
For once I want Casey to be in FEAR of loosing her life.
I give this jury a big 'ol 10. It's a good diverse mix, all seem to be able to contribute something of value, even the AA woman that can't judge (she will in the end). An agreement of Guilty is coming.
As for the death penalty, not gonna happen.
Neighborhood Watch is...
NOT the Vigilante Police
I've gone back and forth with this jury since Day 1. I feel it must be anti ICA as the defense messed up as usual. They thought they'd pull a rabbit outta their hat at the last moment, but the SA used the best strategy of all.
They waited till the end and got rid of the ones pro DT. That in itself made the DT and ICA very mad.
IMO the juror who said she didn't like to judge others may even be a stealth, if not in all fairness to her, she said I don't like to judge people. She clarified that response with the judge saying that she doesn't gossip and needs to see the evidence for herself. Who really knows until they actually vote.
If you base it on the comments of one of the last young guys they spoke with, He said they were talking about it in the jury rm. He added that they were all very negative comments toward ICA. So you have to kind of take that into consideration and I think it's safe to assume that the panels that preceeded him all felt the same way. General consensus: GUILTY
Soooo glad it's over and can barely wait till Tues.

I'm ready to Rock and Roll with this trial. I give this jury a 10/10. They will get it done. Finally!
Added Blessings that it is HHJP at the helm.
And a final word to the Defense Team. Get used to and from the Bench. HHJP believes this is an extraordinary murder trial only from the point of the overload of pre-trial publicity that has been DT driven. Other than that, to HHJP, it is a simple murder trial.
The delays are over. The time is now. This trial will move ahead to completion and a Guilty verdict. End of story.
I wish all the jurors well and I hope they don't become ill when they hear all the evidence. The DP is reserved for the worst of the worst, they will see that Casey is just that.
I hope the jury does form their own opinions before they render their verdict which I think is LWOP, but could turn to DP. ICA has been used to jail jail, it is nothing compared to real life prison and she'll get the rude awakening. She caused this because of her wanton lifestyle, doesn't matter right this minute how it happened, she caused a lot of child abuse, neglect, abandonment. Her duty and allegience was to her daughter and she let her down and forgot about her, doesn't matter if it was 31 minutes or 31 days. Cannot ignore that fact.
I'm kind of worried about the "I can't judge" woman because if you are on the jury, that is what you are there for - hear the evidence and make a determination based upon it. I'm scared she could cause a hung jury, and I don't know diddly about the law, so I'm not sure if they could bring in one of the alternates to avoid a hung jury or not. OTOH, I can't imagine any juror listening to the whole case and making it to the end of the trial without being drawn in and forming some kind of opinion at that point. Surely there's no way she'll be able to say "I can't judge" once she's heard everything. You'd have to be a robot!

LOL, I think it is very difficult to predict how people are going to act or react, based on just a little bit of time in a courtroom.
My outlook on this is IMO it would be very difficult to find very many people who would be willing to overlook never reporting your 2-year-old child missing and/or kidnapped, the behavior of ICA not only during the 31 days Caylee was gone before Cindy reported her missing, but also with the police, with her parents, when she was out on bail, and all the craziness before anything even happened to Caylee. There's decomp in the trunk of ICA's car, hair with a death band consistent with Caylee, Caylee's remains dumped the way they were with things traced directly back to the A's, the duct tape, ICA had means, she had motive, etc, etc.
I rate this jury at a 9.
I am not so much worried as pi$$ed about 1319.. state made a huge booboo and never even questioned her. We don't even know who this lady is/know anything at all about her. HHJP even offered them to question her more and they said no.
With that being said I give them an 8 for guilt and a 10 for penalty (because I really don't care which penalty ICA is given.. either way she will be removed from the face of the earth for the rest of her natural life)
This bee my opinion
I'll give the jury a 10. I really am not worried about 1319, I think she will have a light bulb moment immediately following the prosecution's opening statement and it will be easy for her to judge Casey after that and just wait until all the jurors see the autopsy photos of what this beautiful, vibrant, happy little girl ended up being. They may vote for LWOP over the DP and that's fine with me.
I have to remember that these are folks that don't watch the news too much-- they are, in a sense, virgins in regards to the horrid details they are about to know through and through. I have to remember that my stomach turns, I cringe, I get filled with disgust and loathing-- and I'm "crime junkie blogger" who has a lot of experience with horrific crimes.
I have no worries about this jury, especially the woman who said she can't judge people, I'm sure they have all prepared themselves mentally to hand down the justice our society asks for.
I give this jury a 10.
There is no reason ICA would be in protective custody after she is convicted of 1st degree murder. If ICA gets LWOP, she will most likely go right into general population with all the other murderers, etc. Once she is convicted, she's just another criminal in prison. No special treatment for her. Only if she receives DP will she be isolated from others.

I'm fine with this jury of 12 plus 5 alternates. I watched a lot of the jury selection live or watched the video clips on WFTV and these people are making a big sacrifice to be away from home and be sequestered for up to 8 weeks so that Casey Anthony can get a fair trial. So on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 10.
This is my feeling also. I think the AA lady doesn't judge others based on what people say about them. But once the State lays out all their evidence, one by one, she will come to the same conclusion that most of us have, and it will not be based on gossip. It will be obvious who killed Caylee.
I think 12 out of 12 jurors will vote to convict ICA for 1st degree murder. I think the penalty vote will be LWOP, but I am not yet sure of who I think will vote for what. I'm okay with a lifetime in prison without the possibility of her ever getting out. If it turns out 7-5 in favor of DP, all the better.
HHJP does have the ability in Florida to sentence ICA to death even if the jury recommends LWOP, but it is not likely. Most Florida legal experts have said judges will usually go with what the jury recommends.
As always, JMHO.
