Casey Anthony: Not Guilty Does Not Mean Innocent

Casey Anthony Acquitted of Killing Young Daughter

I was lounging in bed this morning and turned on the TV. The verdict is in for the Casey Anthony trial and would be announced in an hour or so. I thought, “They’re so nailing her lying ass to the wall for this one.” I went on to watch Curb Appeal and Jerseylicious. I love 4-day weekends.

After a while, I channel surfed and landed on MSNBC. Casey Anthony Acquitted of Murder. Did I read that right? Apparently. Stunned was the word of the day. News stations kept using that word. Legal eagles predicted she’d be found guilty. Creepy Nancy Grace was ready to administer the lethal injection into her “Tot Mom.”

In the court of public opinion, she was already guilty. I’m part of that public because I totally believe she did it. Those elaborate lies concerning Caylee’s whereabouts raised big red flags. The thing that sealed it for me was her demeanor when Caylee was missing. Wouldn’t most moms be out of their mind with worry? Not Casey. She was partying it up like a single woman without a care in the world. The day before police found out she was missing, she got a tat on her left shoulder – “Bella Vita” – Italian for the good life. Hmm. A good life now that Caylee isn’t in it? This is why I think she killed Caylee. She was a party girl and having a toddler just did not fit in that lifestyle.

Of course, I can’t prove this. That was the job of the prosecution – to prove she killed Caylee with not much more than circumstantial evidence. The medical examiner couldn’t even determine the cause of her death. The Prosecution couldn’t do it. And the defense offered up a plausible scenario – an accident that went horribly wrong. There is your reasonable doubt.

All the prosecutors could prove was that she’s a liar. Guilty on 4 counts of lying to investigators. Big whoop. Up to one year for each count. She’s already served two. I’ve heard experts say that she’ll probably get timed served.

Jose Baez, Casey’s defense attorney, said, “While we’re happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case.” Sure there are. Casey won. She got the best defense free publicity could buy. When she gets out, she can get l’ho fatta franca tattooed on her right shoulder.

I got away with it…

    No one goes out clubbing like that trollop did,with her child ‘missing’. Being an MSNBC watcher, I am glad it’s over and hope my regularly scheduled political shit is now front and center all day again.

    Did she do it? Dunno, but I KNOW she had a hand in disposing of the child’s body..so accident isnot an option in this case, someone hit that child hard enough or outright killed her. She was cold and calculating..and glad to be free of the child as it cut into her clubbing time. The lowest rung in Dante’s Inferno is reserved for people like her and I hope she gets there soon.

    i didn’t watch the trial, so i don’t know if i would have voted for acquittal or conviction. i was on a couple of juries, one much longer than this trial was, and i’ve learned not to second-guess a verdict. the jury sees things from a far different perspective than what things look like on tv.

    from what i have seen or heard, casey is a despicable person. her face has been plastered all over the place, so she won’t have it easy. i just hope that she doesn’t wind up making a fortune from book deals. the same thing for everyone involved in the case. the death of a little innocent girl should not be the basis for a money-making venture.

      You know, that is very true. And our perception is different from what we’re shown on TV. They get it all – evidence to check and recheck, listening to and watching those on the stand.

      Sadly, I think that is exactly what will happen. Book deals and made-for-TV movies.

    Justice in the court of public opinion, is no justice at all.

  • lobotero

    The media is pissed! They drove this story for years and now they did not get the result they pushed……same with DSK.

    Sometimes our court system feels more like a game than a way to get at the truth. A wheel of fortune thing. Remember OJ Simpson? A cold blooded murderer who got off. It happens often enough. Casey had a role in this horrible event – I hope she’s tortured by it for the rest of her life.

    • beaglezmom

      In ordered to be tortured she would have to have a conscience – and partying while her kid is dead reveals that to be sadly lacking. I think she should get the OJ treatment — ostracized everywhere — and she doesn’t have an NFL pension to fall back on.

    • Spinny Liberal

      I think a lot of it has to do with the skill of the attorneys. They’re smart as hell, and they know how to play the game. I don’t know if she’ll be tortured by it. She seemed to be just fine when her daughter was “missing.” We can hope.

  • Hansi

    Who paid for all her attorneys? Justice don’t come cheap.

  • beaglezmom

    Its a legal system — not a Justice system. The movie “Chicago” fits nicely here – razzle dazzle them with enough crap, lies, and confusion – and anyone can walk away free.

    I love that you called Nancy Grace “Creepy” — I definitely agree — She’s in the clowns, ice-cream trucks, and the snakes who live under our shed category.

    • Spinny Liberal

      Very nice. It is a legal system. It sucks that after she walks free, she can call a press conference, give everyone the finger, and say, “Haha I did it, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

      OMG she is so creepy. The dramatic obsession, and those eyes. Something about those eyes.

        I didn’t watch a whole lot of it because I have kids of my own to raise and a business to help run, and it’s depressing as hell. But from what I did see I think that
        a) she did it, probably with some help, and
        b) the jury came back with the right verdict for the evidence presented .
        I HATE that she got away with murder, just like OJ, but the prosecution should have had their ducks in a better row.
        And those creepy, ice cold eyes?
        Did you get a load of her father?????
        That apple didn’t fall far from the extremely fucked up tree.
        He had something to do with it, too.

      • Spinny Liberal

        I definitely agree with you on both. It was really hard to prove because they didn’t have much linking her to the crime. A hair and a smell? There is something up with that father for sure. Totally weird. I guess we can only hope for karmic justice.
