The Illusion of Justice part one

Tue, Jul 5, 2011 at 5:29 PM By: Shawshank

Casey Anthony was found not guilty by her jury today do to lack of evidence, but the media and the millions of people who have been following the case disagree.
As most of you know, Casey was accused of killing her 2 year old daughter. Some people wanted to her to get life, some wanted her to get death. A lot of good people on this site are outraged about it and hope someone still kills her.

My own opinion on this issue is that the jury made the right call. Lack of evidence doesnt bother some people. They are willing to look at a person quickly, consulting mostly their emotions, and then decide that person is guilty. We all do this one way or another. Some of us are willing to go even further and gamble with that persons life, saying they should die or suffer to pay for their sins.

Several years ago, I would have been in this category. In fact, I was in the case of Michael Jackson. I thought Michael Jackson should be killed. He was rich and weird and clearly used his money to get off scot free. In my opinion, there was nothing worse then hurting a child and that deserved death. This was easy for me to justify because I believed in the bible. Even Jesus, the prince of peace, was all for violence against those who hurt children.

"It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones."

But my opinion on this has changed a lot. There are two reason why I think the jury in the Anthony trail did the right thing.

1. With holes in evidence, they could have sentenced an innocent person.
2. I don't think the death penalty is right for anyone, even a person who kills there child.

More to come on why later.

    The biiggest mistake of this whole trial is there was never a voice for that tiny lil girl. It was all a show. Both sides were a freak show. I honestly believe that she was guilty. Who in their right fucking mind goes out dancing and partying when their child is missing. Who in their right fucking mind fails to tell someone that their child is missing for thirty days. One guilty bitch that's who. The justice system didn't get her, but in due time karma will. RIP sweet angel.

    All i have to say is that no one should be sentenced to death, I dnt care what they did, and as far as lack of evidence you have to have strong evidence to convince me. with that being said ill give you one good reason my i stand by my oppinion check out THE BAKERSFIED WITCH HUNT, no one deserves to be falsley accused....

    well just by looking at she was a party girl who lied about having a job and talked about her daughter in the past tense to one of her opinionay is that she did abuse her daughter that may have led to her death accidentally. I think she should have been charged with manslaughter. She was the last one to see her soooo..... momma needs to take responsibility for her childrens!

    I am afraid I disagree, your opinion is worth much more than two cents. I think everyone's perspective is important because none of us can see the whole picture alone.

    The sad part of this, besides the death of an innocent child, is that Casey Anthony has now become a household name. We never hear about the woman who killed her child because of the predicted May 2011 doomsday bullshit. Or the woman who killed her kids because they were "mouthy". Anthony will sell her story and make tons of cash. The very worse part is that at some point in time she can say that she DID kill Caylee and because of the way our justice system works there's not much that can be done.

    This is just my rant and 1 and one-quarter cents (my opinion isn't really worth two whole cents lol).

    Damn. I have so many conflicting feelings about the trial that I can't make heads or tales of it. The prosecutor made a powerful, compelling argument. Then again, there wasn't enough information.

    i agree with you completely. sadly, i think i know someone who might be like her, i can see how she could put on such a good mask towards everyone but be a monster inside, but at the same time i cant see how anyone can kill their own child.

    And they should've kept the trial private and not let in all those loons, that just made a mockery of themselves fighting to get to the front of the line, so they could get a seat to watch this live.
