Frick & Frack, Dumb & Dumber, 3x over, Made up the Casey Anthony Jury

How could a jury buy Jose Baez's alternative theory of an accidental drowning as cause for reasonable doubt about Casey Anthony's guilt??? Just because the prosecution had some hypotheses about chloroform, one hair, duct tape, and a smelly car which they couldn't prove forensically in the manner in which tv audiences are now accustomed, thanks to tv dramas, didn't mean the circumstantial evidence should not have removed all doubt that Casey killed her daughter.

The accidental drowning scenario was used to generate doubt that a murder had been committed --but there was no evidence for an accidental drowning. Only a theory. There WAS evidence that Casey's daughter was brutally murdered with duct tape --even though the defense disputed that evidence unconvincingly -- trying to suggest the child's grandfather did the taping because it was in his garage?? or what? I didn't hear all those details.... Duct tape is ubiquitous --hard to prove where it came from, I should think.

The REAL evidence is that a child disappeared and was last seen with her mother --that the mother went partying and never reported her child missing --that she lied to her parents and police about the whereabouts of the daughter and a host of other things, including false allegations of others. The REAL evidence included that the child was subsequently found dead near the home in a wooded swamp with the duct tape as a likely weapon.

If Casey's behavior during her daughter's disappearance doesn't prove Casey Anthony killed her daughter, what would? a confession, maybe? An eye witness? Remember the case of Laci and Scott Peterson? I don't think the evidence was any less conclusive in this case than in that one. People's behaviors --like blatant, unnecessary lies --unnecessary for the innocent -- surrounding murder are evidence just as good as DNA (especially if it's true now as in a Law and Order story that DNA can be tampered with and faked.)

I wondered if too many jurors and the delighted defense team approved abortion and had been parties to abortion --believing in the right of a mother to rid herself of an inconvenient child.

I wasn't eager to see Casey's mouth and nose covered with duct tape --but it would be justice. Saving Casey from the death penalty should never have been Jose Baez's primary motivation as it so clearly was, judging from his comments. He actually said he had "mixed feelings" after the judgment. Duh! I'd have mixed feelings, too, if I knew I had just helped someone get away with murder.

I wish defense attorneys were all committed to JUSTICE instead of winning. Committed to getting MERCY for their clients, not committed to twisting a dumb jury into believing a scenario for which there was no evidence --compared to the prosecution's case --which should've been a slam-dunk.

Too bad for the prosecution, that their main prosecutor acted overly confident --and disdainful of the competition. Too bad for them that the jury was part of the new generation of Americans who can't tell truth from fiction, who also call good evil, and evil, good.


On the same day, Oprah tells of parents who only had to serve one year in jail for keeping their little 7 year old daughter in a cage in a dark basement –and for kicking their sons outdoors in the winter without adequate clothes. The son went to the police, and the horror ended for these children –after 2 previous visits to the home by authorities who didn’t find anything wrong.

Then, ALSO on the same day, Oprah introduces a couple who deliberately raised their child in a gender neutral home –such that their 7-year-old boy thinks he’s a girl –and the mother explained to him that some girls have anatomy like their fathers and some like their mothers. Of all the stupidity and evil in the world –to let this boy grow up thinking he is a girl if he wants to be. Next, we’ll all be asked to pay for the mutilation of his perfectly healthy little body when he’s a teen --via gov’t or insurance healthcare. They were pleased to announce that there are many families like theirs, raising children to trans-gender by giving them NO help with gender identity –NO guidance on how to be a boy or a girl consistent with their bodies. Poor kids!

OK, the little baby gets loads of media attention and looks all sweet and cute. That kid gets loads of sympathy from you.

How about all the other little children out there who live in poverty, are seeing their educations go to crap with budget cuts, and so on?

I guess the poor aren't cute and don't get the media attention.

BTW, I'd prefer to have you around as compared to sepp who lies about hs military service.

I attended airborne training and went on to other schools and, yes, just like I do in civilian life Laci, I busted my ass to succeed in the military…maybe YOU didn’t but I DID.

OK, sepp, what special forces class were you in?

watch him waffle! Watch him give unit numbers that he served in during the Gulf that weren't in theatre!

So it's ok if Caley and aborted babies are dead because they won't suffer poverty?? You have no sympathy for those who don't get to grow up and enjoy life?

I certainly do have sympathy for kids and try to help those we can. Our church is sending 33 kids to summer camp, most of whom cannot afford to go on their own --at $235 a head for most of them. Churches and church people have personal involvement with families, single moms, and kids in need and are trying to fill the gaps gov't doesn't.

But I think we need to especially educate youth today about the financial advantages (and morality) of waiting for marriage and working to succeed at it and keeping all their babies with one spouse and in one household --as our American poverty with the huge entitlement programs is largely a result of promiscuity and unwed parents, is it not? We make a lot of expensive life choices that our country is borrowing to cover.

I am for all the programs to help those in poverty--except the program of irresponsibility which they are learning from parents. "Somebody else should take care of me and my kids because I'm poor. I want to go on making these immoral life choices and it's ok or inevitable that my kids will, too."

The problem with the needy right now is that their numbers are growing --and less from joblessness than from making babies with multiple partners who don't pay for them --who seem to deliberately avoid legal jobs that can be gauransheed.

The best thing this country can do for kids is encourage waiting for marriage --straight marriage --and making marriage work --and being willing to work any honest jobs to meet the basic bills.

I love the PIP program that keeps utilities down for the needy --but it's not right when men take no responsibility for the babies they make.

I love tuition help for the needy--but we MUST stop living in such a way that poverty is inevitable, afflicting more and more kids.

budget cuts in education? Absolutely stop the gravy train that pensions and annual raises have become for tax-supported employees making more than those who pay their salaries.

Under Obama, we have doubled the number of federal employees making 6 figures.

belt-tightening should begin with gov't employees.

I see you defended my recent effort to comment at Mudrake's blog --on the Bible having multiple authors --which he said made me so angry. I'm not angry, was not angry. He is more of a liar than Sepp.
