I saw two alternate jurors, who both agreed with the verdict, being interviewed by NBC news last night.
In my opinion, these two alternate male jurors were unintelligent people with little common sense and no intelligent reasoning skills. The young guy used the ignorant argument that Casey was ‘such a loving mother in the photos and people said what a good mother she was.’ He also said how much he liked Baez. Some attorney’s feel that a conviction or acquittal often depends upon whether or not the jurors like the attorneys. How very sad for victims.
When will people ever learn that the worst evil puts on the face of goodness, that no one knows what goes on behind closed doors, and that family photos don’t capture the moment when a mother might be chloroforming her child?
People who continue to defend this verdict seem to be of the opinion that if a case is circumstantial, the defendant should not be convicted of a crime. The vast majority of criminal cases are circumstantial.
Thank God the jury in the Scott Peterson case were far more intelligent than the Casey Anthony jurors, and thankfully the Scott Peterson jurors had the ability to reason. Otherwise, Scott and Casey would both be free to live their lives and possibly kill again.
