I try to distance myself from these types of things, but sometimes I can't. I much prefer to watch a trial than to listen/watch/read the news on cases, especially one like this. Anyhow, so far I'm really disgusted by the defense attorney, not only by the defense theory, but also his tactics in dealing with witnesses. I think he is preying on a hurt family, utilizing this case for his "15 minutes", and is trying to confuse the jury. I sincerely hope the jury can cut through the BS on this one. So far, the defense theory has more holes than Emmental.
Edited: For those interested in some articles, this is an interesting article titled "Casey Anthony Verdict: A Jury of Idiots or Hapless Peers?". In the last paragraph the article basically says that trials like this are a sporting event in this country, whereas, in other countries the prosecution and defense work to uncover the truth. It then states that this type of scenario (a lack of justice) does not happen as frequently in other countries because of the aforementioned setup.
Also, for those interested in signing a petition regarding Caylee's Law, you can go here. And, four states are already working on Caylee's Law - Florida, Oklahoma, Maryland, and Kentucky. If you would like some type of justice for this little girl, please contact your senator, representatives, etc. If anyone is reading this, Ohio and New Hampshire are also considering proposing this law.
