Casey Anthony
 
Anybody folowing this trial? Talk about train wrecks.

None of it makes any sense. No one family could be that screwy.:)

Havn't seen Jerry Springer before, have you!:laughing:

You know the saying, you can't make this crap up.

It certainly is a strange "cast of characters" and could not even be matched by by a disconnectedmovie/TV writer. - Unless you consider science fiction and aliens.

I was always of the opinion that most of what was done on the Jerry Springer Show was staged. I still think that.:yes:

But the Anthony trial? None of them appear to be competent enough to go to trial. Not the accused, not the attorneys, not the judge.:wink:

I was staying at a hotel while out of town for some training and watched some of it. My dad owned a local law firm for 25 years, and did a lot with the high school mock trial teams....I watched him in court many times growing up. I can't believe half the stuff going on with that trial. My wife switched from soaps to the trial, so that alone speaks volumes. What a trainwreck. Too many lies/too much BS for one family to contain. Amazing how all these 'facts' appear years later...***head shaking***

"Facts". Which offerings are the facts? How can you tell?

So far the only apparent true fact is that that little girl is dead.:)

Exactly, Bud. If all that stuff was going on in that family, that's too bad. The one fact that matters is that the little girl is dead and the perpetrator needs the most severe punishment possible. It makes me sick. I have 5 yr old twin girls...it makes me wonder how that defense attorney (or anyone else) can stand anywhere near that woman. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and this one is mine, but I have no doubts that she did it and is attempting to lay the blame on abuse, poor upbringing, anything but herself being a nutjob.

I have no idea who did what but this thing has been festering for about two or three years just getting it to trial. The case was in the news often during that time. I may have missed a thing or two along the way but I don't remember anyone ever saying anything about child/sexual abuse of the mother as she was growing up until now. I also don't remember hearing anything about a drowning until now. How would this account for the duct tape that was found on the little girls body?

I like a lot of people don't much care for some lawyers, and for them to conjure these claims (if that's where it is coming from) to get her off is almost as bad as what has brought them all to the courthouse to begin with.:(

Where's the party now Casey?

I imagine that the child was murdered, but didn't they say that they can't prove how she died? That it's just speculation? I have a very poor opinion of the justice system. A prosecutor in Missouri has had 3 cases overturned recently since he ran for governor and lost. In all three he had evidence that proved the person was innocent and withheld it and got a conviction. The courts say there is nothing they can do to him. One of the men spent 8 years in prison.

Legal is a social system that people often mistake to be synonymous with lawful.

I doubt they have any real hope of getting her off. I think the sideshow antics are just to confuse the issues to avoid "cover up" charges against other family members, and generate enough sympathy to get a reduced sentence.

Casey is a product of society, and the gene pool she was conceived from. Maybe her mother and father was drunk during conception, maybe too many cigarettes before hand. We have a government with their lawyers that protects mis-wired people ,Hitler culled them out of the general public. Nowadays lawyers will protect their rights and re-interduced them back into the breeding public, and call it job security. I'm a firm believer that every state should have a work farm that mis-wired people can be neutered and live a peaceful life behind the highwall.

Bud Cline 07-05-2011 06:44 PM

Well.....There you have it; NOT GUILTY.

The four tiny misdemeanors she has been convicted of will probably allow her to go free immediately with "time-served" being her only punishment.

"Beyond a reasonable doubt" has become a friggen joke. Just like with O. J.'s trial. Just muddy-up the waters in as many directions as you can dream up and a person can get away with murder these days.:)

The little girl is probably better off now anyway, as sad as that is to say.:)

Unlike OJ this didnít cost her a dime. :censored: unreal.
