Casey Anthony...stupid Jury lacked intelligence to connect dots! Circumstantial evidence grounds for murder conviction!
Understandably, there was quite a bit of in-depth court-room analysis last night, spewing out over the Network airwaves (and the blogsphere) in the wake of the shocking Casey Anthony verdict (and sentencing).
At one point, one Network trotted out Juror # 3 to shed some "light" on what was on the mind of jurors, which caused 'em to render a "not guilty" finding in respect to the felony murder charges which warranted the death penalty.
The Juror should have kept her yap shut.
After all, her misguided comments established to many that the jury was - not only lazy - but lacked the intelligence to properly adjudicate the legal issues at hand.
For example, Juror # 3 asserted that there wasn't enough evidence to convict Casey Anthony for murder, child endangerment, abusive conduct, and so-forth-and-so-on.
On the contrary!
As one legal expert noted for the record, crucial "circumstantial evidence" in this instant case established questions of guilt (not doubt).
Applicable statues, in fact, dictated that Anthony should have been convicted on at least one of the felony counts 1, 2, 3, or 4.
The experienced trial lawyer was also quick to add that the jurors in question were definitely ignorant about the role the Judge is supposed to play in respect to deliberation and the proceedings in general.
In this instant case, the Jury was so stupid that they failed to recognize that there were resources at their disposal to resolve the legal dilemmas that were challenging them in the jury room behind closed doors, if they would only reach out and ask the court for assistance.
For instance, the Jurors admitted in the aftermath that there were many questions that were left unanswered.
But, astoundingly, not one of the jurors ever sought clarification - or even guidance - from the Judge (in spite of the fact he was there to be at their beck-and-call to help resolve problems of this nature).
"Their job was to connect the dots. But, they failed to do that," one critic lamented in disgust.
In retrospect, the jurors were either too lazy to make the effort, or lacked the overall intelligence to recognize their legal obligations in the matter.
Because the twelve losers didn't have the answer as to how she died, they literally threw the baby out with the bathwater!
In view of the facts, and the circumstantial evidence (the lies, the failure to report her child was missing for until thirty-one days, the duck tape) Casey Anthony should have been found guilty of at least one of the first four felony counts.
Contrary to what pundits - and lawyers are spouting off on their pulpits today - the legal system did not work.
In respect to Caylee Anthony - justice was not only not served - but blind!
The smug look of a murderer?
