For more than a month, America was glued to the events of the Casey Anthony trial. Long story short, she’s not guilty, folks, so move on with your lives. I’m sure there are better things to do than dwell on this trial and the result.
Isn’t it funny how everyone becomes an instant attorney when a major trial headlines each newspaper and starts off each evening news broadcast?
For more than a month, America was glued to the events of the Casey Anthony trial. The media attention was huge, and just about every network had “expert” panels, “expert” analysis and “experts” in just about anything you can think of to pretty much label Casey as guilty in this dramatic, attention-grabbing trial.
Mix that in with drama queens Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell from CNN and HLN, and you have a hypnotized audience convinced Casey is a baby killer.
But whatever happened to “innocent until proven guilty?” That’s what I’d like to know.
You can put all the “experts” you want together, but all they had to go on as they clipped their microphones to their shirts, dabbed on some makeup and went on camera was the current evidence that was presented in trial and in previous hearings leading up to the suspenseful verdict.
Sure there was evidence and testimony that was brought forth that made Casey look guilty, and that’s what the “experts” went on. But what every panel and special guest on the networks failed to mention was all the things that witnesses said on the stand when questioned by the defense.
Prosecutors thought they had this thing in the bag but, in all honesty, they sucked. The defense team made it very clear to the jury when questioning the witnesses and in closing arguments that not all the bases were covered by investigators, scientists and everyone else involved to prove that Casey Anthony is 100 percent guilty.
I was not surprised when the “not guilty” verdict came back. Prosecutors were vague, and defense attorneys picked up on their weak presentation to turn this trial into a very circumstantial situation.
Long story short, she’s not guilty, folks, so move on with your lives. I’m sure there are better things to do than dwell on this trial and the result.
Personally, I don’t know why anyone would want to waste their time outside the Anthony home and the courthouse just to yell and hold signs, but whatever. You freaks have a nice time losing your voices and money spent on markers and poster board over nothing.
