while I agree that it's screwed up that she got off, I can imagine it leading to more hell than jail. I can imagine her getting harassed everywhere she goes and probably getting the shit beaten out of her a few times. No guy in their right mind would want to date a woman who "killed" her child. And it's not like it's something that she can really hide...this case has been very well publicised over the last few years.

yeah unlike OJ who lived secluded in a rich neighborhood, she will be with everyday people who cared about this case. Here life will be hell even with the millions she will probably make off book offers. I dont think she deserved the death penelty with the limited amount of evidence, but def. more than what she is getting.

In America, unlike other places, its "Innocent until proven guilty".

Yes, in this case its aggravating as there was tons of circumstantial evidence pointing to her killing her daughter. However, it was just that -circumstantial. The prosecution did a horrible job of throwing everyone at Casey and didn't try to make the case simple, and provide the best evidences. When you do that, your not going to have a fantastic go as the defense can poke holes in the circumstantial evidence.

Is the American justice system flawed? Yes. But I still believe that, overall, it provides good outcomes. Eventually, the court of public opinion will have its day against Casey, and we will find justice somehow, some way.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

She comes from $$$money$$$ so she was able to fight the case.



God it irritates me that she got off, While I can't really judge her and I don't know if she did do it, the case sounds kind of off. if anything her crazed behavior, constant lying, fantasy world, and irresponsible nature should have tipped the jury off that something was amiss and there should have been a mis-trial. Its like that Lady that drove her kids into a Lake and said a Puerto Rican guy kidnapped them....ughhh at least that lady melted down and confessed. This is another Jon-Benet in the making.

I live near OJ(before he got arrested) and he wasn't in any secluded neighborhood, albeit it is an upper middle class neighborhood. He just has a really big front yard. I've seen bigger and less accessible places. When I was in highschool I used to heckle the person who cut his grass, because cutting things was dangerous.

Lolz America's justice system is a piece of shit.


Why?  Would you rather we just locked up everybody accused of a crime?

We have the absolute best justice system. (though far from perfect)  We do not have the best laws or prison system - this is an important distinction.

And nobody should ever, ever, say the justice system is bad because somebody they think is guilty goes free.  "better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer"  This is the beauty of our justice system.

Plus, you don't know what went on in that courtroom, or that jury room.  You don't have any more evidence than the media showed you.  You have no right to form an opinion on this case - you weren't there!

 

It seems to me that this is a simple case of "Beyond a reasonable doubt."  While it seems likely that she is guilty, it is not certain.  Therefore, she should not be sent to prison.

Open your eyes, NOTHING can be certain, you have to find the fine line between guilty and not guilt, this woman was way past it.

You probably don't even know anything about the justice system in other countries, why are you being so defensive, do you just like to tell yourself and other people that America has the best justice system as an excuse to wave the American flag? In any other country she would have been locked away.

You keep implying that this woman could be innocent, the bottom line is, if you wait 30 days before reporting your missing daughter, you are guilty of something, that is ignoring the countless other peices of evidence.

And so what if we weren't in the court room, we were given the evidence by the press, the irony is we could WATCH the court case on the internet, my sister watched the whole thing.


I say it's better for the exact reason you state in your post: In any other country she would have been locked away. Locked away without any real evidence.  Locked away with reasonable doubt.  Locked away because it "looks suspicous" when there could be legitimate reasons for her strange behavior.  Mentally ill people don't always behave the way one would expect them to, and we don't know what's going on inside her mind.  That our justice system doesn't try to read minds: that's why it's good.



My two cents: Congratulations America, you've made Casey Anthony Famous. Guilty or not, it's your ratings that will now provide her with celebrity status, six to seven figure interviews, book signings and possibly even a movie. Another case of media saturation and the people buying it. What I think about her doesn't matter unless I am a juror and they've already said their piece. Enjoy the day, this case has gone on for years now.



The fact that she hid her daughter's death doesn't mean she killed. Her death can be accidental and she could have been just so ashamed of not having watched her or maybe she feared other people wouldn't have believed she was innocent, or she could be so distraught to totally deny her death until she was cornered and she couldn't deny anymore. Nobody can really know what a mother feels when her children die, except another mother that experienced the same tragedy, but what's for sure denial is a reaction that can happen in both innocent and guilty mothers, you can't prove their guilt with it.

Edit: or, as d21lewis and others suggested, she could be guilty of manslaughter but she feared to be charged with murder.

Not ANY other country... but a number of them. Someone said she came from a rich family, so she'd get off in France since they basically make crimes of the rich and powerful disapear.  (Without even having to spend for the best lawyers and shit since the judges collcet all the information for trial.)

I think most people would be shocked at how many systems in even Europe are accusatory.
