Casey Anthony

Let me start with a story.

The pastor of a local church went down town for some supplies one evening.  The only parking spot to be found was in front of the main street bar.  He drove around several times, but this was the only one available at the time.  There he parked his car and walked down the street for his supplies.  While he was in the store, all the other cars left.  This left his car all alone in front of the bar.

One of his ladies of the church drove by and noticed his car in front of the bar.  Of course, she couln't wait to get on the phone and let everyone know where their pastor was spending his evening.  She knew this is where he was because his car was all alone parked in front of the bar.  What other conclusion could there be!

The pastor heard the stories and tried to convince her of the circumstance, to no avail.  One night, late, he drove over to her house, parked his car in front of the house and went home.  He left the car there all night.

The above is a case of circumstanial evidence.  The twelve people on the jury for Casey Andrews undoubtly could not see the guilty verdict without reasonable doubt.  Therefore the voted Not Guilty. 

It is easy for us to sit in judgement of others for the way they see differently than us.  We need to remember that they saw and heard things we did not.  I am sure that in their minds, they saw her guilty, but had to follow the evidence presented and that did not prove without a reasonable doubt, her guilt.

I am not saying she is or she is not guilty!  Just saying the court did its job, now lets move on!
