Well, the big verdict is in - Casey Anthony: not guilty!
What do you guys think about this??
Not that I was super into the trial or anything, but I did enjoy reading little snippets here and there about the things they uncovered. (Like the mom searching for "chloroform" on her computer - WHAT?) And I was definitely brought back to the summer of the OJ Simpson trial when my stepmom and I would sit in front of the tv a couple hours a day watching all that go down.
And so, in my untrained-yet-married-to-a-lawyer-which-gives-me-some-street-cred opinion, I think "not guilty" was the correct verdict. Do I think this woman quite possibly killed her daughter? Yes. But is that just a hunch? Yes. Is it supported by cold, hard evidence? No. And I have to say, I'm happy to see that the jurors were able to come to this conclusion as well. The evidence just wasn't there.
Jonathan and I flipped on Nancy Grace the night of the verdict to see what she had to say. Do you guys ever watch her? Oh my gosh - she's a loose cannon! She was so fired up you might have suspected Casey Anthony was accused of killing her kids! And of course she thought the verdict was all wrong, etc. But really, I mean, do you guys think there was enough evidence to convict her? I don't. And actually, I suspect Nancy might not either, but she wouldn't be the firecracker she is if she said so.
When all is said and done, poor, sweet baby Caylee. At least she is with her family in Heaven and not her 100% dysfunctional one on Earth.
