Casey Anthony | Not Guilty | Whitey Bulger Next?

Casey Anthony was found not guilty today by a jury of her peers and people are all upset with the jury. The jury did what it "thought" was right and granted, they may have been wrong but the blame lies with the Prosecutors, not with the jury.

The prosecutor knew they had a weak case, even though they had almost 3 years to built it and they should have offered this woman a plea deal that she would have honestly considered. If she is guilty and they offered her 10 or 15 years anyone with a half of brain would have jumped all over it, not to mention that her lawyer would have told her to take it. That way at least the truth would have been told and she would not be able to profit off of her crime. Also the prosecutors should have given the jury other options than first degree murder. In their arrogance they only left the jury with 2 options, guilt or innocense of first degree murder, and in a weak case like this the jury did not believe it was premeditated and decided to find her not guilty. If they had other options such as manslaughter maybe they would have seen things in a different way. Unfortunatly we will never know.

I do not believe that people should be upset with the jurors. They have nothing to gain from finding her not guilty and I applaud them for doing what they thought was the right thing. No matter what my personal beliefs may be.

You do not have to agree with the outcome but this is our judicial system and 12 people that know a lot more about the case than any of you do thought she did not commit premeditated murder.

If you are looking for someone to blame, blame the DA's office and let them know how upset you are.

Lets all just hope that Whitey Bulger is not the next one to get "lucky" in court.
