...But No Charges Due

Homicide: But No Charges Due


In Orlando Florida, jurors did not reach a verdict Monday. July 4th, in the Casey Anthony murder trial after deliberating for almost six intense hours on the prosecution’s claim that the young woman killed her 2-year old daughter, Caylee, because the toddler interrupted her carefree partying ways and her love life. Who knew that the freedom bells of the 4th of July would also be ringing for Casey Anthony. ( Let Freedom Ring ).

Not Guilty! Why did the jurors find her not guilty? The verdict was read once, twice and then a third time. Not guilty. ( Let Freedom Ring ). This brings back memories of another verdict that happened back in 1995. When O.J Simpson was acquitted for murdering his wife.

The young 25 year old woman was only convicted of four misdemeanor counts of lying to investigators, who were looking into the child’s June 2008 disappearance. When Anthony was interviewed she lied. But she had lied in fear of what? Her parents, the public, or both? The fact of the matter is, she was found not guilty by a jury of her peers. The verdict may give you the urge to splash cold water on your face and wonder about the court system.

The prosecutor lamented the lack of hard evidence. Yet they put everything together like a nice little picnic basket only to be shot down. They stated that they had the facts. The facts that their side thinks had enough weight to sink Anthony.

The defense states that it was a drowning accident. Was it a drowning accident and the people involved were too witless and ignorant to do the right thing that the results ended up even more tragic?

There were too many holes that sunk this case for the prosecutor. The medical examiner was not able to find the cause of death. The body was decomposed and the remain’s recovered offered very little or no tangible evidence.

My only question to the seven women and five men that made up the jury was why...

Why was it so important to cover up the accident and then hide the child. Why the sensationalism. Why did it have to happen that way. Was Caylee;s death so unimportant?

Just remember, a child frantic before death. A Car with decay odor, and detectives investigating the death of a girl they ruled homicide. But what they didn’t expect was the stamp on the coffin that read: No Charges Due.

I agree with you. The saddest part is a child is dead. These people are the only ones who know the how and why. I believe they will never tell unless they are forced to.

Eventually we all would have to face our own selves, and that, I believe to be the living Hell every human being dread,he so dearly fears , but the power of evil uses other people , places , and things as the perfect distraction. But we all know it's temporary, we feel it . It is that connection to something, and that is truth . We do a great job of pretending we don't know , well the truth is we don't . But not for long, and we feel it it too is powerful, more powerful than that of evil.

To play not to know ,fulfills the evil we possess as humans we were born into it. Yet the choice is ours to walk away from it. So it is what we know, that we don't know, and that is the Price we must pay for lying to our own truth . Ourselves! We came with one body and look what we choose to do with it . Lie , cheat , and hurt others.

Bless,,

Dear Frank. Obviously, the case and verdict meant a lot to you as a statement about our court system, whether it is fair and just and who makes the final decision in heinous crimes. Blessings to you, Debby [Voted up]

It is at times unfathomable...how a specific jury decides and why. Poor little Casey Anthony. Some people don't deserve to raise children and when they do, tragedy follows. Very legitimate and important rant. Theresa
