Casey Anthony Juror: 'Sick to Our Stomachs' Over Not Guilty Verdict

Casey Anthony
The case of Casey Anthony has apparently gripped America. Or more accurately the likes of Fox News who whip up the public to salivating levels. The trial of this young mother, accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, ended in a not guilty verdict. Yet before anyone can think further, a juror suggests that she actually did do the deed but that the jury couldn't quite find evidence to convict. So what better than to go out into the wide world of media land and say you think the accused "got off".

Juror Jennifer Ford said that she and the other jurors cried and were "sick to our stomachs" after voting to acquit Casey Anthony. She goes on to say "I did not say she was innocent. I just said there was not enough evidence. If you cannot prove what the crime was, you cannot determine what the punishment should be." Just a hunch that she did it or just prejudice? "I toggled on manslaughter and not guilty. It doesn't feel good. It was a horrible decision to have to make." All sounds like innuendo. Did the jury just take against this woman because they thought she was no better than she ought to be?

Justice must be seen to be fair and above board. This just sounds like sour grapes and vengeance rearing its ugly head. A driving force in American justice! Yes people get away with crimes and yes innocent people get convicted, but the state needs to be like Caesar's wife. In a lot of cases Mrs.Caesar would be appalled!
