Was our U.S. Judical System working correctly in the Casey Anthony Trail?
Innocent until proven guilty?
The Procescutor obviously thought he could get a conviction based of circumstantial evidence alone.The jurors obviously disagreed with that notion.The prosecutor should have charged her with conspiracy to commit murder or conspiracy to commit manslaughter.Involuntary I would think.
The fact that her husband is a police officer and knows the law should be a factor as well.
I think the case proved that lazy prosecution is not an option in our legal system. "Due process," the "burden of proof," and "beyond a reasonable doubt" are weighty terms that seem to have been ignored. I imagine that the prosecution likely ended what could have been a lucrative career. I feel that the system was working properly, because had she been convicted, then any subsequent case could have ended in conviction on weak evidence. It doesn't matter what you know, it's what you can prove.
