Yes, I get that she probably shouldn't be convicted of first degree murder, but how she got away scott free just amazes me for so many reasons.
Nowadays, you can't send your kid to school in the same outfit for three days in a row without getting social services all up on your ass. But apparently, you can let your kid go missing, lie about it, neglect to report it and get a small slap on the wrist.
The chick is a psychopath. She completely defamed her family, made up a twisted web of lies and will walk away without serving any time?
A woman that will not testify in her own defense is so obviously guilty. The fact that her own parents couldn't defend her makes her obviously guilty. Lets say that her daughter did drown? The fact that immediately afterwards, Casey didn't shed a single tear, went out partying and got a tattoo, makes her a psychopath and a danger to society. In my book, not reporting her missing until your own mother forces you to after 31 days makes you guilty of at LEAST child abuse/neglect.
I really want to see a picture of this jury of asshats that was selected. From what I've read, several were uneducated and at least 3 had spent time in jail themselves and/or had children/siblings that were drug addicts and drunk drivers. The fact that you could come to a unanimous decision in 11 hours after 31 days of testimony makes me feel like they just didn't care. How is it that 99% of the general public disagrees with the verdict, but those 12 determined it so quickly and easily? From what I've heard, they had to speed things along because juror #whatever had a cruise to catch this Thursday. It amazes me that they could listen to 30+ days of testimony and still believe that she had no ties to this child's death whatsoever.
I wasn't following this case super closely to be honest, but I'm also disgusted by the fact that the police completely ignored the lead determining the whereabouts of Caylee's body MONTHS before it was finally found completely decomposed. Perhaps if they went out and examined the area when the lead originally came in there would be DNA left on the body. It's disgusting.
Lastly, I'm completely disgusted by the defense team in this case. Partying and popping champagne on TV when a child has died. Celebrating because you let a murderer (or child abuser at the very least) run free? I have the image of the mousy blond lawyer chick with the really bad frizzy hair jumping up and down like it was her birthday. It's PATHETIC. These people should be ashamed of themselves.
