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.
