  • And with this verdict, all faith in humanity is officially GONE.

  • At the risk of irritating a number of people, I see this verdict in a different light. Like it or not the girl/woman was aquitted! Any failures that may have occurred belongs to the State of Florida. As bad as they tried to make this girl look - that's not a crime. The crime is locking this girl up for almost 2.6 years before prosecution. I certainly do not know who did this, but I do know that they can't prove who did. At this point leave the girl alone, don't buy the book, don't go see the movie, don't watch the paid interview. That would mean that the money, that will be paid, will be wasted by the media and advertisers.

    I'm also confused about the idea that you can be charged for lying to the police. We have a 5th amendment protection and I think if I am ever questioned by police I will invoke it, request an attorney, and refuse to answer questions. I've certainly learned this lesson. Being charged for the investigation/prosecution makes no sense to me if I am aquitted of the underlying charges. Apparantly, the investigation was mishandled and flawed badly by the police and procecutors. Going after her at this time looks like "sour grapes" to me.

    That's just my thoughts. I think the "system" protected her from over-zealous prosecution. Did she do it? Maybe, but we will probably never know the truth. If someone else did it, they will get away with it because everyone has stopped looking for them.

  • No Evidence. No Proof. No witnesses. Sorry Casey haters, this was a decision brought to her by a jury of her peers, that's it.

    My Opinion: weak prosecution. Or is that a fact?
