In an earlier post, I made a flippant remark about Anthony Casey being a baby-killer.
The Casey Anthony saga lasted for more than three years. During that time she was arrested numerous times on lessor charges in an attempt to determine what happened to Kaylee. The procicution attempted to try the case in the Media. They investigated for years and spent countless hours trying to determine how Kaylee died, but in the final analysis, they failed to prove their case. Their was no evidence that proved their case "Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt".
We all know that Casey Anthony killed her daughter! But that was never in doubt or the issue.
Even if it is "likely" or "probable" that a defendant committed the murder, she must be acquitted because neither likely nor probable satisfies the daunting standard of proof a reasonable doubt. While this may not produce a morally just result, and justice has not prevailed for the victim, none the less, the law has prevailed.
Sadly, in this case, the System worked!
The prosicution failed to make its case. End of story!
And so it goes...
