Many folks were stunned by the bombshell acquittal of Casey Anthony on the majority of charges aimed at her. It seemed like everyone felt that the prosecution had that one in the bag, guess not.
While the court of opinions and the media frenzy surrounding the case seemed to point the finger of guilt, a jury could not. It’s all about what you can prove and the prosecution’s bucket just had far too many holes in it. At the end of the day, her peers found her not guilty of all but minor charges.
Is this a case of a seemingly guilty individual with a great defense team or was there no real basis to convict? Can our justice system be so easily swayed by skill and manipulation of core emotions? What are your thoughts Martin County?
