Subject: Geez Gummy, I thought Caylee's hair, the decomposing stench in her car as well as the chloroform in the car and at the death site, the not admitting she was missing for 31 days and the body in the swamp with duct tape over its mouth should have at least added up to felony child abuse?
In reply to: gumtree 's message, "The Prosecution's duty in this case was to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Ms. Anthony actually committed the murder. They did not succeed in providing any proof of that. They certainly laid out a case - but it was, when you came down to it, conjecture - there was no PROOF that she committed the crime. Having said that, I have no doubt that Ms. Anthony was at least complicit, if not the actual murderer - yet there was no EVIDENCE that she actually did. Thus the jurors were actually proper in their 'failure' to arrive at a murder conviction. Now...I'm prepared for the onslaught. Please keep in mind that I believe that she is guilty as sin - but without EVIDENCE, you can only draw a conclusion from behavior - and while her behavior is certainly damning, it isn't enough for conviction of the crime of murder." on 07/ 6/11 9:38pm

[> [> [> Well from what I've read, it sems the jury was actually split 6-6 on that very charge.....and somehow that vote morphed into a not guilty verdict. When and if the day should come that more members of the jury speak out, we'll never really know. BTW Casey is now due to be released on Wed. -- Cindy, 07/ 7/11 3:02pm

[> [> [> [> Gumtree's right, though-circumstantial cases are very tricky. One thing that amazes me is that any discussion of substance abuse was kept out of the proceedings; personally I think the mother was high the whole time she was disposing of that annoying little liability with the big brown eyes who was holding her back.... -- Gaby, 07/ 7/11 3:51pm
