First, let me begin by saying that I do not believe in the death penalty. The one good thing that our disgraced governor George Ryan did for the state of Illinois was to temporarily abolish the death penalty. Our present governor, Pat Quinn made it official this year. If I did believe in the death penalty I could think of no more deserving a person than Casey Anthony.
And now why I think I have the answer as to why Casey Anthony was found not guilty. The jury was sequestered for over 6 weeks away from family and friends. They were tired, they wanted to go home, they didn’t want to be burdened with a death penalty case. Perhaps if it had been a manslaughter case she might have been convicted. Jose Baez sickened me. When he would walk out of the courthouse he would pose for pictures. The celebration across the street from the courthouse that the defense team indulged in after the verdict was beyond ignorant. It proves that Baez has no class.
Someone was responsible for the death of Caylee Anthony. Perhaps it was a tragic accident, however, if this were so, I do believe it would have been reported. I am not sure if George and Cindy Anthony were truthful on the stand. It makes no difference. Caylee is gone forever and what is angering me and millions of other people is the fact that she was discarded as if she was trash. How the jury could overlook that is beyond me.
All of this said, I do respect the jury system in our country, although right at this very minute, I do not think justice was served in the state of Florida yesterday.
