Ever since the verdict in the Casey Anthony trial came down, I've been in such shock that until now, I couldn't put it into words. Now I feel that need upon me. There are many, MANY things to talk about in that case re: this one, but for now the first and most important is the difference between how they fell apart. In medical terms, a miscarriage refers to when a fetus dies inside the mother's womb for whatever reason. The mother and even those around her may try to do everything right, but something causes it not to be. An abortion is when the decision is consciously made to destroy the fetus inside the womb so the baby can never be born. That's the distinction here as well. With Casey Anthony, the prosecution did everything they could. They presented a solid circumstantial case that, in the era before shows like CSI and the general overreliance on technology that I often warn about, would have sent her to prison. But she still got away with it. People will tell you the different reasons, but she walked because of the poor quality of jury intelligence that we see so much of today. But it's different in the JB case. That case was destroyed before it was ever made by politics and cowardice. Everyone forgot about a little girl and was more concerned with their egos, their careers, their public images, and their personal and political agendas. And now the difference is undeniable!
