The Witch Hunt Trials: Speculation NOT Evidence
"The witch trials have become a symbol of what can go wrong when mobs of ignorant people go crazy, especially when egged on by just as ignorant and/or power hungry leaders" from this article by Austin Cline.
I know of 12 people who agree with me, that there was no conclusive evidence to support the charges against Casey Anthony. There was plenty of speculation but no real "without a doubt" evidence. The jury did their job.
A trial is not a popularity contest. Just because someone perceives something or someone in a particular light does not make it so. The fact is that Caylee Anthony died. But, the prosecution did not prove how, when, where, what or who killed Caylee. It is very possible that this was a tragic accident. There are many tragic accidents involving children that are just that...accidents. Casey has paid the ultimate price. She no longer has her child, and according to most witnesses in this case, Casey loved her child.
Why are we as the public so eager to condemn mothers of children who have died or are missing when the truth is unknown? Is every mother likened to Susan Smith? The mother who confessed to strapping her young sons in their carseats and letting the car roll into their watery grave while she watched?
The State of Florida prosecution looked only at Casey. They never checked the cell phone records of George Anthony - why not? It was stated that Casey didn't report her child missing for 31 days. Caylee wasn't missing she was dead. Did George lose it because he didn't want Cindy to find out? Then hid Caylee's body (prepared for burial like he did his family pets)? "It was an accident that snowballed out of control".
They had money problems - George lost thousands on a Nigerian scam. George didn't have a job. Missing children bring in donations.
People who believed that the prosecution in this case didn't show any proof of Casey being guilty have been afraid to open their mouth - for fear of the mob mentallity prevelant in this case. Nancy Grace stated that the jury was "kooky". So I suppose not only does she want to be "Judge" and don robes, but now she wants to be the jury as well.
Speculation- NOT evidence - is what the prosecuting attorney presented to the jury. There was absolutely no evidence showing who, what, where and how Caylee died. I am ashamed of the lynchmob drooling to string up Casey. I am proud to be an American who lives in a country that guarantees the accused to be held innocent until PROVEN guilty by a jury of his/her peers. God bless the jury and God bless America.
