Scary to think that all rulings made in the case where made by a Judge who was sworn to set his own personal opinion about guilt or innocence aside when handing down said rulings.http://www.today.com/news/case y-anthony-judge-felt-shock-dis belief-not-guilty-verdict-6C97 91042?lite=
Two years after jury selection began for the Casey Anthony murder trial, Judge Belvin Perry, who presided over the case, said the Florida mother was "very manipulative."
"There were two sides to Casey Anthony," he told Savannah Guthrie on TODAY Monday in an exclusive interview. "There was the side that was before the jury, where she portrayed the role of a mother who had lost a child, someone who was wrongfully accused, and then you could notice the change and transformation in her when the jury went out.
Scary to think that same Judge could remain unbiased in his decisions, especially in a death penalty case.
Scary to think that same Judge had 2 of his 4 charges overturned.
Scary to think that same Judge would acknowledge:
"All the defense had to do was create reasonable doubt, which they did",
but be "shocked and surprised" at the jury's verdict given that his OWN jury instructions were prefaced with:
"In order to find the defendant guilty of murder in the first degree, the State must convince you beyond a reasonable doubt of the defendantís guilt of either premeditated murder or felony murder. While you must all agree that the State has proven first degree murder beyond a reasonable doubt, you need not be unanimous in your opinion as to whether that finding is based upon premeditated murder or felony murder as I shall now define those terms."
Scary any way you look at it..........but given the rumor that the good Judge is considering a career post retirement, as a media talking head, not surprising at all.
