HI Jennifer and the other cowards who are too ashamed to show their faces ( unless there is money in it for you, right ?)
What do you mean you donít know what happened to Caylee? If you feel sick, itís because YOU didn't do your job, not because the State didn't prove their case. OMG.
What don't you get about cause of death can't be determined when the murderer hides the body well enough until skeltonized ? How is a baby in the woods an accident ?
The only one who knew where the body was Casey and she wasn't talking because she had more important things to do. No time to call 911 ? No time to tell one single person that her daughter died ???
This is a good mother ? One who doesn't work, lies about it and steals to live - and then says her father and her brother sexually molested her ?
Oh, yeah, Judge told you to disreguard that. UT OH another BIG ASS LIE --- and this person who would say the most horrible thing a daughter could say if untrue --- and you dont trust George !!!
If there is any logic in there, I can't find it.
Either you are on psych meds or you need to be.
Or maybe some of those pills that helped Cindy magically remember things she was too traumatized
to remember years ago !! Lies, excuses & bullcrap.
You think you can say the state didn't prove the case and thats going to excuse your sloppy judgement ? No one believes that, and you and your 11 cousins made a huge mistake the whole world watched on the internet.
As if our crime rate isn't bad enough, now people know FLORIDA IS THE PLACE TO COME AND COMMIT CRIMES !!!! Thank you for that too.
So, how did you feel when you found out she is a 6 time convicted FELON ? And she initially plead not guilty then too, but Bank of America & Target & on & on - had tapes of her, so she finally plead guilty on that.
Too bad she didn't make a home movie of how SHE KILLED CAYLEE so you would KNOW what happened.
Because of you and your merry little band, I will never have any faith in our legal system again.
YOU 12 failed CAYLEE and the whole world knows it.
Too bad you never will. The American dream is DEAD
Last thing - I would never buy any book or buy any product you guys might endorse. Most of us never want to hear anything you have to say because you have as much credibility as Casey.
I have got to get this statement to Nancy Grace and Jane, Vinnie, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, Time Magazine, This is as powerful as Linda Drane Burdick's closing statement that said it all!
Caylee is happy now

She is an angel. She doesn't remember what happened when her mother killed her....no sadness in Heaven. She doesn't worry about Casey making her sniff chloroform or the duct tape....she's happy with her Maker. Casey....you're on your own...keep listening to the devil...you can spend eternity with him and never see your precious one again.

I am waiting for the first juror to say ďOMG I made a mistake. I knew by the evidence that she was guilty and I didnít stay with my opinion. I let another juror convince me to vote not guilty and I knew I would come to regret this later.Ē Jennifer Ford danced around it and did not explain her statement of ďI didnít say she was innocent.Ē The jurors will tell on themselves in time. So shameful.

I wasn't there either but I LISTENED to the testimonies, I
WATCHED the videos, I LOOKED at the evidence. Did they because it sure doesn't look or sound like it. Juror #3 said she gave a not guilty because cause of death wasn't proven. Did she not hear Judge Perry say the cause doesn't matter, what matters is that a child is dead?( I'm paraphrasing but that's the gist of what he said.) I may not have served on a jury but I still know when an injustice has been commited
You CANNOT come to a verdict of first degree murder without either "homicide" as cause of death or without a confession. When you are on a jury, you have to go by the facts presented, not your feelings. I very much doubt the judge said what you thought you heard.

If the verdict wasn't put in the hands of 12 of the dumbest people that's on this Earth and Judge Perry had handed down the verdict....GUILTY! Even the disgust showed on his face. And then baby killer's attorney asks that each of the lies killer had told law officers to be considered as one charge because she told her lies on the same day! Give us a damn break! I wonder if the murderer has decided what color she will do her hair? Red or blond? She is one self-centered dangerous bitch! My bet is her parents will welcome her right back in their home...wherever that is...their home is in foreclosure because of their bitch daughter.

If it was any of us, we'd be serving all 4 years after the trial, not 1 year after the trial, IF she serves any jail/prison time at all. I feel for O.J. now. LOL

Does anybody know who Sandra Good is? She was a member of the Manson family and this thing named Jennifer Ford reminds me of her. Her way of speaking and psycho facial expressions-really, it's uncanny. Can u imagine this Jennifer driving down the highway and seeing a car wrapped around a telephone pole with a guys head thru the windshield-She would say maybe the car was smashed up in a wreaking yard and was brought here to look like it just had a collision--and that guy with it's head thru the windshield? well, maybe he drowned in a swimming pool and someone brought him here and pushed his head thru the windshield? Who knows, maybe he died before his head went thru that windshield and for some reason someone made it look this way...I wouldn't want to speculate

I agree with every one who is outraged by this verdict. I cannot believe that this is even allowed to happen. I think the jury needs to be investigated because someone must have paid them off. I just can't believe 12 people could possibly be that naive. Maybe they should be mentally evaluated also...I think Caylee's law should be that from now on, if another 12 idiots ever let a baby killer off, that the judge should have the power to reverse their decision. Really I just cannot find a logical reason for them letting a baby killer go free....even when they admitted that they think she's guilty!!! Sad sad sad. I think I might move to Canada after this

I heard on the Weather Channel this morning that already this summer 30 children have died in hot cars. Since this type of "accident" is always preventable, where is the outrage for these young lives? Why doesn't Nancy "Gross" go after these moms and dads, who were obviously criminally negligent in leaving their kids in the car? Why does this Anthony case get all this attention?

YES, Why did the Anthony case get all this attention? Was the fact that she killed her daughter the reason she was ever in court, or was she in court cause she lied to the police?

Jennifer Ford should never be allowed to finish nursing school. Her short stint on a jury showed she has NO critical thinking skills. Not one question during deliberations, mind made up when she went to deliberate. I would hate to be her patient with this obvious lack of critical thinking skills. She would never be able to report a change in a patients status to a physician because she did not "see" the change happen, it could not be "absolutely certain" the change happened, and as we all know "not guilty" does not mean innocent. Dumber than a box of rocks, sold her soul for a trip to Disney, lol.

It is proletariat talibangelical southern trash like you who should scare EVERYBODY about juries.

The case boils down to this: They had a stinky trunk, a dead body and experts testifying how she died. THEY HAD NOTHING ELSE. They didn't have INTENT, a necessary element to prove murder.

Anybody or anything could have killed her ... a boyfriend, a swimming pool, leaving her in a hot car, overdosing her on drugs intended to temporararily calm her ... but none of this is first degree murder.

Don't get me wrong, she did something and/or knows something, but you have to PROVE it in court. If you can't prove it, you can't convict.

If we start to convict people because of your intuition, that's called railroading. How many innocent men have to be exonerated to prove that people like you don't know what you're talking about?

THE JURY SHOULD BE CONGRATULATED!

First degree murder was not the only murder charge they could apply. Fact, the baby is dead and tossed in the woods. No one does that when it is an accident. Speculation, perhaps the grandfather assisted her to get rid of a baby she killed but again no reason for the grandfather to do that if it was an accident. The child was left to rot for 31 days by Casey alone or with the assistance of the grandparents. Then it was reported and the web of lies, the constant web of lies by both Casey and the grandparents began. Fact: NO ONE needs to hide an accidental drowning. Caylee is dead and someone may have helped her hide it but murder is murder. They could have gone for a lesser charge but they didn't. That shows no critical thinking skills by a wanna be nurse.

There was certainly enough evidence to prove child abuse. This is a sick society when a person can do what she knowingly did and walk. She can continue her life to bad her daughter can't. I hope when she closes her eyes she see that beautiful little girl.s face. I do not believe she is innocent She was involved in that childs death. Whats her childhood got to do with it. Alot of us had crappy childhoods but we don't harm a child. Her life looked pretty good to me

You talibangelicals are so gullible. When Rifqua Bary ran into the arms of Talibangelicals, you immediately believed that a mosque in one of the richest parts of the Columbus area, where doctors and scientists attend, was some kind of an incubator for terrorists, and fell for the nutjobs who were "protecting" her "honor killings" even though our prosecutor has never heard of an honor killing happening in the entire state of Ohio in the last 30 years he has been with the prosecutor's office. You can't convict people because of how they react, or their actions or their expression on their faces, or because you don't like their body language. YOU HAVE TO HAVE EVIDENCE!!!

Do you know how many people have been unjustly convicted because of the very things you say should have been used to convict Casey? Check out the Ohio Innocence Project and see for yourself how many people have been railroaded, even in a state of relatively sane people like Ohio, let alone southern states where the rednecks have an itch to lynch someone any chance they get!

So far, 272 people have been exonerated by the Ohio Innocence Project. These are people that were convicted (some even railroaded) with the kind of skimpy evidence you claim should have been used to convict Casey Anthony.

P.S. By the way, I am not a bleeding heart. I am just skeptical of government having too much power and like our court system just as it is. if you give government too much power, someday they'll turn their sights on you.

Very well said we must all post that on the news and newspaper. A good article to be written in all papers in USA. Rollins girl you are very highly intelligent and I salute you for bringing out the truth. We all love Caylee deep in our hearts.

Would agree that the prosecution didn't have the hard evidence to show premeditation; however, there WAS enough evidence for the jury to deduce that Anthony was guilty of more than just lying to the police. This jury certainly failed to conduct itself in a thorough and responsible manner. I'm surprised that they (the jury) could even reach the conclusion that Anthony lied.

Yeah, but my understanding is that she was charged with manslaughter and murder and nothing lesser. I don't think juries can make up their own charges.

I think we can all agree that we have a dead child, and that Casey probably knows what happened to her. That doesn't mean she murdered her. What happened can run the gamut between neglect to angry tirade to abuse to murder. It's the prosecution's job to prove which.
