Guilty or Innocent?

I hope you all had a nice 4th. This July 4th has turned out to be an exciting one. Not so much for me, although I spent some time at the beach with my son, but the Casey Anthony trial had me on the edge of my seat. The closing arguments did not disappoint. After 35 days and over 100 witnesses it all came down to...who do you believe? On one hand the state really doesn't have any real evidence that Casey murdered her daughter but who can deny she is a lair and how she treated her family on the phone when she was in jail. But the Defense simply can't prove that baby drowned in the pool or that George or Lee Anthony molested Casey (not that it would prove anything) The defense only proved he can make everyone, including the judge hate him.

But the best was when the Sate attorney laughed at the defense during closing arguments and Baez called him on it. I thought for a split second there would be fists flying but Judge Perry quickly put an end to it and was about to charge both attorneys with contempt.

So now it is in the hands of the jury. I think they will find her not guilty of 1st degree murder but she will get time for the death of her daughter.
What are your thoughts?


  1. Personally I'll be glad when it's over. I know it caught media attention and has been followed for years now, but does the news and media really have nothing more to cover than the trial of a lying party mother who's daughter tragically died?!?! I know it's a horrible thing, but to sensationalize the whole thing and make her a household name is ridiculous.

    Having said all that and getting off my soapbox...I agree with you. I don't think there is enough to convict of 1st degree murder. They will convict her of some lesser crime in the death of her daughter, but not 1st degree.


  2. "He who laughs last laughs best" remember that Mr. retired losing lawyer... let him remember that case for the rest of his life..have a good night sleep knowing u fucked up and let a killer go free.. or did you?
