Why can't people accept the verdict in the Anthony trial?
The jury found her not guilty of first degree murder, not guilty of aggravated manslaughter and not guilty of aggravated child abuse. They did find her guilty of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. A jury of 12, the accepted way to determine guilt in this country. The trial was presided over by a prosecution leaning judge. The law was followed in his court. The prosecution presented their evidence, the defense presented their case. The jury decided. What's the problem? The jury wasn't duped, they weren't bribed. They sat and listened. The weighed and evaluated the evidence, and made a unanimous decision. I seriously doubt that as some have insinuated, that they merely made a decision so that it could all be over with. They aren't stupid. They had the opportunity to convict her of a lesser charge in the death of her daughter, but they felt that the prosecution didn't prove it's case beyond a reasonable doubt. You and I weren't there, we didn't sit in one of those 12 chairs. They got ONLY the information that was admissible in court. WE tried her in the media. Most of the public that she was guilty based on the MEDIA, not the facts. She was an irresponsible mother and a liar, but neither of those makes her a murderer, nd she was convicted on the lying part. For every expert witness the prosecution called, the defense called one to rebut, that's their job. What would you do if you were in the defense seat? Would you want a fair trial? I bet you would, but it's not acceptable that someone else should get one? Nancy Grace is not always right, she was wrong on the Duke LaCrosse players, and she settled a lawsuit with the Duckett's, and she was obviously wrong here, of course she was one of the ones who tried her in the court of public opinion using the media information as her 'facts', and her faithful followers as her jury. So the jury decided, you can dislike it if you want, but the fact is, they did their job. To either answer, and your presumption of guilt is based on what? What evidence do you have? Please share. If you can convince me, I will be happy to not only join the lynch mob, but supply the rope..... To either answer, and your presumption of guilt is based on what? What evidence do you have?

I am in no way saying that there isn't a dead child, to insinuate that is just making a complete fool of yourself. Try putting forth an intelligent argument, it's easier for someone to accept.

Because the public thinks they know more then the lawyers and the jury.. Almost none of them even wanted to hear any evidence, they just wanted/want to take casey out back and shoot her in the head. they blame her and don't care about evidence or lack of.

I don't watch Television or Listen to the radio, nor do I read the news. From what LITTLE I've gathered, she was negligent and stupid. Unfortunately these are not crimes in the United States, but rather the Standard.

i don't have a problem with it.. The law requires the prosecution to prove its case. The prosecution failed. I don't understand why they didn't charge her AND her father with abuse of a corpse and failing to report a death. They would have won those charges,

Legally speaking, it was what I expected. The prosecution didn't have any solid evidence against her. It was all circumstantial and based on speculative theories. The thing that has most of the general population outraged is her character. People have a lot of disdain for bad parents. And especially her. So whether she... More

They're mad because their lord and savior, Nancy "I have tweeeeeee-innns" Grace, was wrong. Fortunately our justice system does not convict base on the court of public opinion.

The People were give a ruling in Law - not Justice. Law is all you get from the court system. Justice was not met.

So a woman tells lies about who took her child for nothing? That woman killed that baby. But it's ok that she got away with it. One day she'll be in that place that's the opposite of heaven...
