I am in shock. It's like OJ all over again. She will most likely walk thursday for time served since she's served over three years already. This makes me so sick. Poor Caylee did not get justice here, and I just hope that if they eventually find new evidence, to re charge her again and do it all over. I think the biggest reason why she was "not guilty" was because of a lack of evidence. I think everyone knows she's guilty as sin, and I hope it follows her for the rest of her life.
the US judicial system is different from that here in Canada. I found it interesting that you could get to Murder 1 from 2 paths...
I thought for sure she would get Murder 1: Life without Parole. I didn't think she'd get Death because there wasn't any "hard evidence".
I am SHOCKED with the decision.

I stopped by to weigh in.
I am shocked. I was in my boss's office watching the verdict be read and I was just sitting there with my mouth gaping open. I wasn't expecting her to get the death penalty, but I certainly wasn't expecting her to walk either. SHOCKED. I spent the entire weekend watching the closing arguments.
Thought I'd throw my 2 cents in. I totally was shocked and quite frankly mad that she was not convicted. She so obviously did it, and that poor baby gets no justice against this lying killer. So sad!
I always had a feeling she was going to walk, and it's so upsetting to see she did. There were too many conflicting stories on what happened and not enough evidence. I honestly believe that her parents had something to do with this, and I hope they find knew evidence to convict all 3 of them.
I have to agree with Marisol. Not shocking whatsoever. It is extremely difficult to get a Murder 1 conviction. That whole "beyond a reasonable doubt" makes it tough.
And-I could be wrong here-but I believe a conviction and then sentencing (life or death) are decided by 2 different juries???
Wow, It's a shame I don't know more about our justice system. Shame on me (

Dh and I are both sick to our stomachs over this whole thing. I just don't understand how a MOTHER can do that to her child and then walk away. Anyways, I thought I would share the new "Caylee's Law Petition" with you guys. I hope it becomes law so this never happens to another child.
