Now, you might ask yourself why three elderly gentlemen would be interested in all this babble-de-gook. It's because when people are tried on TV and found guilty even before the trial starts, it's refreshing to see that our system of trial by jury can still bring home a verdict based solely on evidence and not on pre-trial hype.
What you say? You were sure that Casey Anthony would be found guilty as well. And you were angered by the verdict because you felt that baby Caylee received no justice for her brutal slaying. Were you watching the same trial I was?
- At no time did we ever learn what actually killed Caylee.
- No one saw Casey Anthony kill Caylee, in fact, no one EVER saw Casey mistreat Caylee in any way.
- No one knows when Caylee died.
- No one knows how Caylee's remains ended up in the swamp near the Anthony household.
That being the case, why were millions of Americans (mostly women) so sure that Casey was guilty of doing away with her daughter?
- The two year pretrial hype led by former prosecutor/investigator Nancy Grace TOLD the American public that Casey Anthony was guilty.
- Casey Anthony was an unadulterated and an utterly absolute liar.
- Casey Anthony was the last person seen with Caylee.
- Casey Anthony was a party girl.
- Casey Anthony didn't report the disappearance of Caylee for 31 days.
- Casey Anthony went clubbing immediately after her daughter disappeared.
- Casey Anthony stole money from her friends and relatives.
- Casey Anthony's car trunk had a strange smell in it that prosecutors tried to prove was from the decomposed body of Caylee.
- Casey Anthony looked, dressed, and acted like Americans perceived a baby killer would look like.
- She stuffed the living Caylee into the trunk of her car and suffocated the child.
- She suffocated Caylee using the duct tape placed over her nose and mouth.
- Casey Anthony was one hell-of-a liar.
- Casey Anthony was a slut of sorts.
- Casey Anthony grew up in a highly screwed-up household.
- Something stank in the trunk of Casey Anthony's car.
Of course, none of this was enough to convict her of murder.
The aftermath was, Casey Anthony spent 12 extra days in jail plus time served for lying to the police. After a huge clamoring, she was forced to stay in Florida for one year on parole. Now she's free, but still the media tries it's best to prove her guilt. Recently they found a search on the Anthony computer for the term "fool-proof suffocation." Of course Casey can't be retried and it is highly doubtful this new search would have proven any more damning than the chloroform search demonstrated.
The guys from Table 54 agree that enough is enough already. Casey Anthony was found not-guilty. She's a free woman with all the rights of any citizen of this country. It's time to allow her to get on with her life.
