    WebSleuths Lingo thread.

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...bsleuths-Lingo

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    I was surprised to see that this isn’t being discussed here (Or maybe it is somewhere and I’ve missed it LOL) . I haven’t watched- it’s taping right now I plan to watch in the morning.

    Thanks for the link Tulessa. I found this comment by Cheney Mason interesting.

    Defense attorney Cheney Mason says the evidence did not establish how, when or where Caylee died.
    Since when does the prosecution have to establish how, when or where a murder victim died?

    They only have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused murdered the victim. In many cases,like this one,that is achieved using circumstantial evidence.

    Murderers should not get a pass because they conceal the way they killed the victim or the time or the place that the murder occurred.

    I think this is where the judge really made a mistake in allowing the defense to “instruct “ the jury on points of law. Sure you can bring up that you don’t think the prosecution has established X, Y, or Z, but he shouldn’t have been allowed to tell the jury what they “had to have” for a conviction.
    Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small.

    There is nothing in Common Law that permits defense attorneys to lie and accuse others without evidence. The minute Baez started accusing George and the meter-reader (!) he should have been taken off the case, put into custody, and charged with criminal libel and slander if he could not back up his claims.

    This isn't the 1970s. Forensic evidence shows up the lies of criminals and their attorneys again and again. It is time to hold defense attorneys personally, legally, financially, and criminally responsible for not only the actions of their clients but their own lying words.

    If a defense attorney gets a serial rapist off on a technicality, and that rapist goes out and rapes again, not only should the rapist be put in prison forever, but the attorney must be punished too. We are done with amoral devil's advocate liars. Charge them wtih obstruction of justice, take their law degree away, and give everything they own to the families of the victims.

    Punish the criminals and their protectors, hard.

    I walked away from this forum after the verdict and haven't been back until now. I was so angry and heartsick and couldn't wrap my head around the fact that she got away with it. So many mistakes, but in my mind, though there were mistakes on so many levels, it was Judge Perry, and his fear of an appeal, who let this happen. Time has not softened my feelings about any of this.
