Disclaimer: I didn't follow the Casey Anthony case, not for one moment. I did, however, hear that...
...she allegedly killed her daughter
...she was found innocent of murder charges this afternoon
...and now there is an uproar. Sign-o-the-times? How the "Casey Anthony is Guilty" Facebook page?
I don't know if Casey Anthony is actually guilty. Certainly it seems like she could be guilty, but that isn't what the jury determined, and in the end that how the system works. Failed? I think that anyone who looks for perfection in anything created by man is always going to encounter that which fails. We are, it seems, perfectly incapable of perfection. At best, let's hope that we get it right most of the time. Maybe this just wasn't one of those times.
For now I say leave Casey Anthony alone. Her trial wasn't an election and we didn't get a vote on her guilt or innocence. The jury did, period.
