Have you noticed how our Justice System has evolved over the years? It used to be just plain and simple. Now it's too confusing. The judge can instruct "this" to a jury, but "not this", or it could be grounds for a mistrial.
The people who need to go to jail usually don't, and the one's that don't need to go, usually do. We can only blame ourselves.
Is Casey guilty of Murder? Maybe, Probably? Will we ever know? Probably not in this lifetime.
If her father would lie on the stand, about an affair he was having with a search volunteer, wouldn't he lie about something more serious?
But her ex-fiance said it all... Her whole family is dysfunctional.
I personally believe the tape was used to keep the dirt out of her mouth and nose. It's just the way some ill people think when burying someone/thing they care about, in a twisted way. That's why there was the heart sticker on it.
Either way, it's just sad.

Our criminal justice system is designed to protect the innocent, and punish the guilty, in that order. Unless you have studied history, visited other parts of the world, or personally experienced the justice system, that may be hard to appreciate.
The jury did what they were supposed to do, given the circumstances.
As humans, we are not perfect. Unfortunately, there is not a perfect solution to every crime because we as individuals are not perfect. Like it or not, this world sometimes works best through compromise.
In the end, the prosecutors aimed too high, but missed their mark. Who can fault their aim, given the sad results of this crime?
I am sure there is no worse agony being suffered right now than by those who sought to prosecute the death of Caylee Anthony.
No one is happy right now , not even the guilty.
Its a sad affair, no doubt, but whats unique about that?
"Let the perfect among you cast the first stone"...................
(Just another view from someone with plenty of experience with the legal system)
I grieve with everyone about this tragedy, and believe in a higher form of resolution.
May God bless thev soul of Caylee Anthony

I think in some way she was GUILTY of her daughter's death. Maybe intentional, maybe by mistake. I think she hid the body.
But the prosecution went for a home run and I gotta say I truly expected a GUILTY verdict based on the various news outlets from MSNBC to FOX.
From (again what i read and hear), the prosecution did a LOUSY job (perhaps those same reporters who condemned her at first, now say the prosecution did a lousy job).
I am reminded of OJ Simpson (also a case decided on circumstantial evidence). I was ans still am sure he was guilty, buy as a juror might have seen it differently.
Do I think she was guilty... YES.
Was this the right choice... unfortunately yes, I think so.
I hope she is nagged by it and "us" for the rest of her life.
We, and America, are not perfect.

Talking to a fraternity brother of mine who is now a pretty high profile lawyer down in Tampa, he said their feeling was they went after her based on the evidence the wrong way. Odds are from what they thought, Casey in some way killed the daughter, but not intentionally. Chances are she wanted to go out, keep her quiet and applied the duct tape thinking it would keep her quiet. Then the girl dies. Yes, her fault, but not intentionally. Then her pathological lying side takes over and you throw in the rest of the family and it's chaos from there.
In the closing arguments he believed the egos of the prosecutors looking to grandstand got in the way of their best judgement. Instead of all that "ask yourself whose life is better" line, they should've went with something like, "Listen, leave everything out the door when you deliberate except one thing, your common sense."
if they would've used that approach and gone after Manslaughter with her lying and the evidence, he thinks it would've been a slam dunk for the jury.

The way that we were taught to evaluate evidence of a crime, and to present it in argument is in the scenario of the rabbit and the snow.
Example; crime and crime scene on one side of a field which is covered in snow, and on the other side of the field there is a rabbit. From the crime scene to the rabbit are visible "rabbit tracks". Logical conclusion - that rabbit had something to do with the crime. In this case a good prosecutor could probably get a conviction, on some charge, based upon the circumstantial evidence.
Second example; crime and crime scene on one side of a field which is coverer in snow and there is a rabbit on the other side of the field. There are rabbit tracks around the crime scene, but for some reason there are no rabbit tracks that lead to that particular rabbit. (Maybe it snowed and covered up some tracks, maybe those are not his tracks around the scene). In this case you could not get a conviction because the trail of evidence does not conclusively lead to a particular suspect.
In Caley's case the only evidence they had was the body, the scene of the body, and the duct tape. None of this was tied conclusively to any suspect, therefore - Not guilty.
We are bound to analyze this case for the next (how many years has O.J. been guilty?) several years.
