The Runway Jury

Good grief, there are actually jurors who might make money off of Caylee’s death.  Please, someone tell me that there will be laws against this soon!  Part of being on a jury should include a clause that states that you cannot make money from the case you were on.  It’s just….beyond words, I think.

An alternate said they’d find her not guilty too.  Really?  So you can say that without deliberating?  Classy.

Juror #3 said just because they found her not guilty doesn’t mean they think she’s innocent.  Actually, yeah it does.  Casey looked up how to make chloroform 84 times.  Casey didn’t report her daughter missing.  Casey lied about having a job.  Casey lied about Zanny the nanny.  Casey partied while her daughter was dead. Science proved there was human decomposition in the trunk.  Chloroform.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there are circumstancial cases.  There’s not always a video or a picture or DNA on everything.  Caylee’s body was left to the elements for 6 months.  And if there was DNA on anything, I’m sure Baez would have said, “of course Casey’s DNA was on Caylee, she’s Caylee’s mother.” There WAS evidence, they just couldn’t be bothered to see it.

It pisses me off to hear the jury say they were sick to their stomachs giving that verdict.  What more did they want? There’s not always a cause of death.  Especially in a body that’s so far gone that it’s just bones.  Add in animals, bugs, water, heat, cold.  I think today, we are far too into crime shows and jurors think every little loose end is tied up with forensics.  And to say there was no proof, just makes me wonder if they saw the same trial I did.  Then again, they couldn’t bother to take notes so honestly, what do we expect?

Casey isn’t the only one who has to live with this.  Those jurors will have to live with their decision as well.  And I hope they think about what the world thinks of them right now.  There’s nothing that they can say to change that.  It doesn’t help their image that they are asking for money for information.  Far from classy and far from justice.

And how is it that they ‘went into hiding’ yet the day after, there they are giving interviews.  I think it was #3 said they didn’t want to add to the media circus.  So what? Wait 24 hours and magically, everything is all better?

If I’m being hard on them, it’s because they had a really big job and I feel like they failed.  Epic failure.

Really, I hope this case shows the world that our justice system is severely flawed.  The vast variation of sentencing, the allowance of expert witnesses to charge outrageous prices to testify, the shady tactics of lawyers on both sides.  I think a defendant should be questioned.  I know, I know, 5th amendment rights but life is so complicated and our justice system is old and based on life from forever ago.  People grow in all ways, why hasn’t the law grown?  Why can’t we update our court systems?  Why did it take THREE YEARS to get to this trial?  Why does it take 20 years to execute someone?  Explain to me how someone can take a life and still have rights?  They can get a degree on the tax payers money.  If you are given a life sentence, that should be it.  You should get the bare minimum.  No tv, no gym, no hot meals, no visitors, no books, no magazines.  Don’t even get me started on the war on drugs.

Can you tell my anger has yet to fade?  Ah well.  It will.  Eventually.  Hopefully.

Absolutely Shocking Verdict

Well….I think we can all agree (minus the few nutters people) that this was a disappointing and shocking outcome.

I have big issues with this and it’s not because she was found not guilty.  The jury didn’t take the time they needed.  There were some who didn’t even take notes during the trial.  Over a month of trial, 90 witnesses, tons of evidence and no notes?  Why were there no questions from the jury?  And 10 hours?  After the computer searches months before Caylee died, they still thought she accidentally died and covered it up.  Casey lied for over a year.  She hid Caylee being missing for a month.  She made up people.  I think it’s cowardly that the jury went into hiding.  If you are sure of your decision, you should stand tall and stand by it.  They ran away because they came out of their little bubble (just in time for that cruise I might add…) and saw that no one else agrees with them.

There was about the same amount of evidence in the Scott Peterson trial and he was found guilty.  Point A to Point B to a guilty verdict.

How in the world could they get past Casey partying during the 31 days after Caylee died?  She didn’t continue life as normal.  She partied her ASS OFF.

The jury liked Baez and would all say good morning to him….wow.  The same man who toasted to his victory while a child is gone, dust in the wind.  Rank and absolutely arrogant.

But I, like everyone else, could go on and on about how shocked I am.  I stand by my feelings.  My conclusions are based on the same things the jury saw.  Unless new evidence comes up, my opinion won’t change.  I thought comparing this case to the OJ case was a stretch but now I can see it.  OJ was guilty otherwise he wouldn’t have gone out of his way to write the book ‘If I did It.’  Casey could do the same thing tomorrow.  She could go on Dateline or Good Morning America and laugh in our faces and tell us how she did it and there would be no punishments.

When I think more about it, my anger fades and clarity makes an appearance.  Casey in jail means a routine, a roof over her head, safety, three square meals and all the candy she can buy.  She could get a degree.  She could get free medical and free dental.  But in a short time, she’ll be released into a world where she’s the most hated woman in America.  She’ll never have a real life.  Even if she changed her name, we all watched the trial.  We all know her face.  Judging just by Facebook alone, most Americans believe and know in their hearts that she murdered her daughter.  Every where she goes, she’ll be stared at.  She’ll be called a baby killer.  She’ll never hold a job.  She’ll never have a healthy relationship.  If she ever has another child, she’ll be watched like a hawk and her child(ren) will know that their mother probably killed their sister.  She will never EVER be able to get away from the memory of Caylee because America will never forget her.  And we’ll never let Casey forget Caylee.  In jail, she could make a life for herself with other people proclaiming innocence and understanding.  Outside, she’ll be alone.  Perhaps justice has been done.  Just not in the way we’d planned.
