Slow...you know as a mother, if your child went "missing" you would move heaven and earth to find your child.
And Lord have mercy once you found out what what happened.
This whole case...her spoiled brat antics while in jail...her REALLY sleazy lawyer...and now them celebrating with Champagne.
REALLY??!!!

Kidding. I am sick and tired dumb arse jurors. It is the only system we have. How many other attractive women are going to get away with crimes?

I don't disagree with you. However, her lack of not moving "heaven and earth" is not proof.

That's my point. While I believe this crime is reprehensible I shudder at the thought that our system of justice and the determination of guilt or innocence would be dependent upon one's actions being considered appropriate at a given point in time.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

I wouldn't say they had less. Probably about the same. However, he also had a stronger motive that was tangibly provable, and he bolted--which iced the cake.

You and I know nothing about the jurors. It's the prosecutor's job to make a case and they didn't do a very good job of it.

No, rioting is an act of rebellion, can't rebel against people in power when you're in power.

Also ITT: People who don't understand how the law works. Any evidence was circumstantial, they had no direct evidence, she walked and she should have even if she did it.

I hate to agree with you, however I have no choice. These prosecutors must have attended the marcia clark/christopher darden school of prosecutorial tactics or how to blow an open and shut case.

I would have to agree with that. What UGLY situation. I am still wondering if THEY threw themselves under the bus to save here worthless murdering arse. My guess is she will be visiting every nightclub in Florida until she finds the murderer.

Had to watch and listen to almost all this trial as the wife and I are on staycation and she got interested. HLN covered it live. The bottom line is that the prosecution had virtually no evidence to connect the mother to the death. Plenty to show that she is perhaps a sociopath or bipolar, but they couldn't connect her to the death. Their closing argument was pretty lame as well. Unfocused, sometimes illogical, and boiled down to "look how suspicious she acted."

The only good news is that Nancy Grace has to eat crow as she has been blaring on since before the trial opened that Anthony would easily be convicted. Certainly she was convicted in the court of public opinion.

This is why the over/under of her becoming a stripper/pornstar is set at 18 months.
