Why Casey Anthony Got Away With Murder

Published:

Last Edited: July 14, 2011, 1:36 am

I like the fact this "car guy" gets it, and makes a case for what's wrong with the jury mentality but not sure about his fudging on the law take.  A few thoughts of my own here. Some of the jurors have since talked and given reasons why they voted not quilty.

1.  "They didn't know the cause of death."

Me: How about sufocation since the body was found with 3 pieces of duck tape covering the mouth and nose? Sounds simple to me.

2. "There wasn't enough evidence."

Me: How about not reporting your child missing, ever. It was the grandmother that reported it after she found out after 31 days. All the lies to the police. Partying and shopping for 31 days. 84 searches for chloroform on her computer plus neck breaking. Chloroform in the trunk of her car plus coffin flies. Duh, seems like common sense to me.

3. "She probably drowned in the pool and covered it up with the help of her dad."

Me: This is rediculous because no one would handle an accidental pool drowning this way by turning it into a murder and throwing the toddler in a swamp for animals to tear apart. Especially the dad, a former sheriff. This explanation by the defense just doesn't make sense.

 

If you are ever on a jury know this. Defense attorneys can and will make up flat out lies and the judge is not going to call them on it. They don't swear an oath to tell the truth and nothing but the truth but maybe they should be required to. I was on the witness stand once and the defense attorney was telling lie after lie. I turned to the judge and asked, Your Honor, can he just make things up? I got no answer but now I know. Yes, they make up whatever fairytale they can to get their client off.

And what a faiytale Casey Anthony's lawyer spun. Also, his voice was smooth and calm. The prosecutors seemed to talk nervously and stressed at least in the closing. I wonder if these attorneys had been switched what the outcome would have been. If this is what juries have come to, maybe it's time for a three judge panel.

Anyway, here is the "car guy's" take on the jury.   http://lewrockwell.com/peters-e/peters-e69.1.html

Casey Anthony walks free this Sunday, July 17th and yes she will most likely make a million dollars if not more for TV, book, movie deal, etc. Seems crazy to me.

Casey Anthony simply out-smarted the state of Florida. There is a petition "Caylee's Law" to be signed floating around on Facebook and other places to make it a felony crime not to report a child missing in a reasonable time.

Last I heard a quarter millon people have already signed it. NC has a similiar law but it's already on the table to stiffen the penalty.

It was a "show trial". The media doesn't normally do that for Joe and Sally Sixpak unless they have a reason, such as distraction from the real news or ulterior motives.

One such motive can be seen in her sentencing for perjury...she was charged one count of perjury for EACH lie. Perjury charges usually encompass all lies at a single trial to be covered by one charge. Multiple charges for the same crime is a dangerous precedent. If she told 50 lies during her trial would the judge have sentenced her to 50 years?

It's a case of double jeopardy. You can't be charged more than once for the same crime. The judge took it upon himself to charge and convict her with four counts for the same crime. Her crime was lying under oath during her trial. That's one charge, not four.

Do you see how dangerous this is? Let's say somebody assaults another and throws 15 punches. Is that 15 counts of assault or one?   Or someone rips up a parking ticket into 50 pieces and throws it on the ground. Is that 50 charges for littering or one?

@Rick: if the ticket is torn up in front of the donut-grazing revenuer, it also counts as *in-tim-i-da-tion*.

@ Rick. The 4 counts she was found guilty of were for lieing to the police. Her multiple lies sent the police on multiple wild goose chases using up man power, man hours and costing the taxpayers. The DA was the one to bring those 4 charges. She didn't take the stand or get sworn in at court so there could be no perjury. Multiple crime sentences can run concurrently or consecutivly as the judge decides. I guessed correctly this judge would give her the max he could (consecutive) because he gave a guy 6 days in jail for showing his middle finger over his mouth in the courtroom.

I don't think the hoopla around this case was for a contrived distraction from other issues, although there is plenty of that nightly. It was because of the shocking nature of the mother's actions.

God forbid if you were raped or tortured in different ways over hours or days each of those acts would be one count of a crime as it should be.

@TigerAngel, thanks for the clarification on the 'lying' charges. Admittedly I didn't follow the story or the trial. As I said, it's a distraction from more important issues that the media is NOT talking about.
