1st off let me make myself clear I think she is not completely innocent, I do not think she premeditated to kill her daughter Caylee. But I can understand why a lot of people think she did. When dealing with the death of a child especially in this type of scenario people want justice they want someone to pay for what happen to that innocent child, I want justice for Caylee as well. But to try and convict someone for 1st degree murder that carries the death penalty over very shaky circumstantial evidence is not the right thing to do. The states evidence in this case is based solely on circumstantial evidence alone. Was Casey a liar? YES does that mean she is guilty of 1st degree murder? NO!
George Anthony was a horrible witness for the state he was argumentative, rude, and unbelievable. The defense was able to break him down on the stand and show just how emotionally unstable he really was. Which leads me to the defenses “posturing” it is the job of a defense attorney to make sure their client wins regardless. Jose Baez did a great job at keeping the jury from really concentrating on how much of a horrible person Casey really was. With his opening statements of him saying that Caylee drowned and then later on the molestation allegations along with incest, he also went as far as saying that Casey’s brother Lee could be the father. What this did was throw major waves into an already rocky pond.
So it comes down to not being able to link all the allegations of 1st degree murder, aggravated manslaughter of a child, Aggravated child abuse. This is a true testament to how great our justice system is, so many people will knock the justice system and complain about how it is “broken” but when it comes down to it and they get caught up in a jam they will be thankful for the American justice system. As I stated early shortly after the verdict was reached, if you do not like the American justice system then move to China or Iran. And enjoy their justice system, we have a constitution and every AMERICAN citizen is entitled to due process.
My closing arguments:
I am glad to see Casey Anthony beat these ridiculous charges, I predicted she would be acquitted for the lack of evidence produced by the state. This goes to show you that the American justice system is NOT broken and that you are and always will be innocent until proven guilty. There was ZERO forensic evidence that linked Casey to the murder of her daughter cut and dry. This was a “dry bones” case. Very hard to get a conviction on a dry bones case.
