    I think the flags should be placed a half mast for a month because of this terrible tragedy in our American Justice System!

    Would you let her babysit your child? Child neglect? would you not worry if your child was gone for 31 minutes, let alone 31 days ? The judge should have overturned this verdict..

    This is a superb example of the sensationalized media coverage which has evolved in our Country. Casey was convicted by the media long ago. I would imagine it makes for good ratings which mean money, which is the only important thing, right?

    The only positive thing about CNN and this case is the fact that they provided a live video stream during the trial. This could be accessed by anyone who wished to hear what went on in court and nothing else.

    No commentary from the "anchors" or "experts" on every word spoken in the trial and no contest between media members with attempts to "top" another member with yet another opinion.

    This is why some of the public were shocked that the jury decided as they did. While the public had been hyped up by the media sensationalism, the jury was fortunate enough to escape the insanity.

    Please people; realize what this is doing to you as you are mesmerized into joining the frenzy. Are we no longer able to form our own opinions without having "news analysts" and "psychiatrists" tell us what to think?

    This sensationalism should be outlawed just as the paparazzi should be outlawed. We have crossed the line as to an individual’s right to privacy.

    Shocked - as I was with the O.J Simpson case where clear evidence was presented to the jury yet they let themselves be ruled by their emotions.

    Could it be that after being 'locked up' as sequestered jurors with the possibility of WEEKS more for sentencing that they said "Enough-just let her go!"?

    As in the OJ Simpson trial, Casey Anthony has been found found not guilty. Why hasn't the Sheriff or Chief of Police, made a public statement stating they are immediately starting a new investigation into Caylee's death, knowing they cannot go after Casey, but uncovering every rock to find more information, and finding the Guilty person(s). The Jury has said it's not Casey, therefore the murderer is still on the large. A jury said OJ Simpson didn't kill Nicole & Ronald. Is that investigation ongoing to look for the murderer?
    Regarding statistics, does that mean Caylee, Nicole & Ronald's deaths are categorized as "Unsolved".

    I think she is guilty, guilty, It seems as if all of the people that think this was a just verdict are confusing reasonable doubt with any doubt at all. There was no reasonable doubt ion the case at all. Sure it is possible that a martian came down and killed her, maybe O.J. came by and did it, but is not reasonable to think that. She is guilty. The jury messed up, they should be ashamed

    Do I think Casey Anthony was somehow responsible for the death and or disposal of her daughter's body, YES, YES YES!
    But weeks ago when I heard they were considering the death penalty I knew I could not convict her. Why, because I only THINK yes did it I don't KNOW that she did it.

    DID THE JURY SELL OUT *******************************************?????


    To come to a not guilty verdict in the the way in which they did......something is not right.....that is all I am saying.

    Sadly, there just was not sufficient evidence for a guilty verdict for murder. The jurors are most unhappy and I agree – they did not say she was innocent, just not guilty.

    the jurors are having second thoughts- golly gee- 10 hours of deliberation- no notes- no questions all they wanted to do was get out of there= these folks are the worst of the worst- they and Casey will be forever together- I hope the little girl visits them in their dreams

    The only reason Casey was found not guilty was that Jose Baez LIED and CHEATED. His opening statement was done on purpose. Baez should be held accountable for this verdict. He is a Liar and a cheater.
