2 of the jurors came forward and it seems they are say that they knew she was guilty but the evidence just wasn't there. What!?? Oxymoron.

Sheeeesh!

To me it just says the prosecution did a bad job on jury selection...

HOWEVER, the instructions given to a juror is that the state has to prove EVERY point in the indictment or the person should get a 'not guilty' verdict...


So, say the charge is a robbery with a gun... and there is a video of the crime and it is the defendant clearly on the video... but no gun is present... you are supposed to vote 'not guilty' since the prosecution did not prove the gun... the guy is guilty as sin of the robbery, but not robbery with a gun...

In this case I think they had included enough lesser charges that she would have been convicted of at least on of them... I am not sure I would have voted for murder 1... not sure what that means... but I would have voted for at least one of the charges even if it were child endangerment (or whatever the actual charge is).

There was a host of lower charges but the jury seemed to think the only thing she was guilty of was lying.

I was just watching the news and it seems that there was a lightening strike on the tree that is holding up Caylee's memorial. Is this a sign of things to come for Casey. Move over OJ.

Not to hijack the thread, but legal decisions like this one happen in all countries.

No, but now I know who she is. Not sure I want to listen to her. Glad there`s a filter on the 49th.

I hope that none of you guys are on my murder trial jury. 80+% were for guilty verdict.

I hate to keep bringing up the media, but if they had not been permitted in the court room (TV that is) we wouldn't be having this problem. Everything gets magnified 10X and the "talking heads" throw all kinds of thoughts into the picture. And, as you know, the jury doesn't get to hear everything we hear. Now today I hear on the news there have been threats on the judges life and a big push to publish the jurors names. Why do you think that is? People are nuts.

Threats on the jury and judge are not acceptable. Very scary stuff.

I still don't know the details of this case. I understand, from what a friend is telling me, that if you put aside the sensationalist way the media have covered the trial, then it is an interesting study in how our legal system can produce a not guilty verdict in a case like this. However, I am very turned off when I see these kinds of cases being covered in the media and usually go out of my way to not read about them.

The thing I don't understand is if the death penalty was the hang up as one juror implied, why wasn't manslaughter given consideration?

I have no idea what the jury was thinking but there were other charges presented that they could and should have considered. They even said "not guilty" to the child abuse.

You can always turn off the tv set or change the channel. Is it the media or the audience?
