From an interview with People Magazine and a male juror:
“The Casey Anthony jurors have been barred from restaurants, shunned by family members, and vilified online. One even quit her job and moved out of Florida, for fear of the backlash.”
I don’t feel sorry for them. Cause and effect.
“One male juror consented to speak with PEOPLE under the condition of complete anonymity.
“We tried very hard to separate our emotions from the evidence,” he says. “Generally, none of us liked Casey Anthony at all. She seems like a horrible person. But the prosecutors did not give us enough evidence to convict. They gave us a lot of stuff that makes us think that she probably did something wrong, but not beyond a reasonable doubt.”
No, you 12 people felt that it had to be beyond ALL doubt under the sun!
“I live in fear that someone will find me. I Google my name every day to see if anyone has figured out who I am. The few people that do know haven’t said anything, but one of my friends told me that his wife forbid him to talk to me. My own sister cussed me out. It has ruined my life.”
Ruined your life? Sorry man, but Caylee Marie’s life was ruined, destroyed, snuffed out.
“We took the first vote on first-degree murder,” says the juror. “We were 10 to 2 to acquit. So we talked for about thirty minutes, and the two decided that they were willing to change their votes, so first degree was off the table pretty quickly.”
Yes, it doesn’t take long for nincompoops to be swayed by other nincompoops to go against any common sense they might have in their little finger nail.
“Next up: aggravated manslaughter. “We did our first vote and it came out half to acquit, half to convict,” says the juror. “And we talked about it for a while, going through the evidence. I’d say that some people got intense, but there were no personal attacks, no real yelling. And we talked for a while, then it was 11-1 to acquit. And the guy who didn’t want to acquit basically looked at us and said, ‘O.K., whatever you all want.’ He knew he wasn’t going to convince us.”
And there it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! People-pleasing. No moral backbone, no degree of self-confidence or understanding of what is just. That juror basically said, ‘I don’t want to be attacked personally. I don’t want to be disliked, or be the odd man out. I just want to go home anyway, so I’ll just go along with the crowd.’
“And then we sat there for a few minutes and were like, ‘Holy crap, we are letting her go free,’ ” he continues. “Everyone was just stunned at what we were about to do. [One of the women jurors] asked me, ‘Are you okay with this?’ and I said, ‘Hell, no. But what else can we do? We promised to follow the law.'”
And did the People Magazine interviewer ask this moron about the charge of aggravated child abuse? No.
There was no evidence of a drowning accident. Casey said Caylee had been abducted, yet told no one about it until Cindy forced her to. Caylee could have been raped, molested, starved, or otherwise abused during those days with the “kidnapper.” Casey Anthony knowingly and willingly did not report her missing child to authorities for 31 days. Casey is GUILTY of Aggravated Child Abuse.
“I know people are mad at us, but we did our jobs, and I think we did them to the very best of our abilities.”
Bullshit. You wanted to get the hell out of there and you didn’t even go over any of the evidence tapes, or look at any pieces of evidence at all. You should never have been given that job because you were all too stupid to have sat on that jury in the first place.
I blame Judge Perry in part for this verdict. He allowed people with no moral ethics, and little common sense to sit on that jury. He had even considered allowing homeless people on the jury. This was a complicated case, you can’t allow just anyone to sit on a jury. Hell, maybe the homeless would have deliberated longer and looked over all the evidence so they could stay in the nice hotel and be fed.
