So Although The Mostly White (10 Whites) Casey Anthony Trial Jurors Amazingly Could NOT Find Enough Evidence To Convict Her For Murdering Caylee, Some Of Them Haven't Wasted Any Time Offering Their Story Interviews For Big Buck$.
What A Disgrace That These 12 Supposedly "Reasonable" Adults Would Allow A Mother Who Killed Her Child To Walk FREE Without Even Convicting Her For 2nd Degree Manslaughter, Are Now Considering Selling To The Highest Bidders, Their Reasons For NOT Holding Casey Anthony Accountable For MURDER!
Some Of The Jurors Were Parents.
However If You Can So Easily Acquit A Child Murderer Versus Using Common Sense & Accepting The Excellent, Intelligent Evidence Presented By Prosecutors, Then I Question What Kind Of Parents Are They To Their Own Children?
You Know I'm Now Beginning To Think That Most Of The Jurors Served Just For Future Monetary Gain.
GOD Help Us!
I Hope NONE Of Those 12 Jurors Are Able To Rest At Night For A Long Time.
And Any Network Or Media Organization Choosing To Pay Them For Interviews Deserves To Experience Lowered Ratings Or Lose Advertising Sponsors!
In The Meantime I Think Court Systems On Both The Federal & State Level, Should Consider Enacting Laws Which Require That Sequestered Jurors For Life Or Death Penalty Cases Receive One Day Of Training Before The Actual Trial Proceedings Begin.
Training On What Reasonable Doubt Is, etc.,
What A Shame!
Great Job Jeff Ashton & Linda Burdick!
The Evidence Was Crystal Clear! It Was The Jury Who Dropped The Ball.
Casey Anthony Juror: Ask Me Anything ... For a Price
One of the jurors in the Casey Anthony trial has decided to go public with his side of the story -- but TMZ has learned, he's not talkin' ... unless the price is right ... and 5-figure offers are already pouring in.
A publicist for the unidentified juror is sending a letter to media outlets, claiming, "Our client -- a married, college-educated, 33-year-old white male with two young children -- is willing to consider granting one or more media interviews so long as the opportunities are paid."
We're told the juror has already received multiple offers from big news operations, including at least one major network. Sources tell us ... the high offers are in the "mid 5-figures."
Paid interviews are a hazy moral territory for obvious reasons -- and the publicist, Rick French, admits, paying for sit-downs is "always a sticky subject and believe me, I understand the delicacy of this type of negotiation."
But French insists ... sticky or not, his client ain't budging -- "He will not entertain any offers that don't include compensation for a myriad of reasons."
NO JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE: We, the jury
The 12 jurors who acquitted Casey Anthony of murder yesterday chose not to speak to reporters and they were not identified by name. To guard against bias, the jury was selected not from where the crime took place, in Orange County, Fla., but in neighboring Pinellas County. They were sequestered in an Orlando hotel for more than five weeks.
Here is what is known about them, their comments from jury selection and the charges and penalties that had to weigh against Anthony.
Juror No. 1
White woman in her 60s, retired, believes in the concept “innocent until proven guilty,” condones the death penalty. “I value life. I also value the criminal justice system as it has evolved.”
Juror No. 2
Black man in his 30s, information technology technician, has 4-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son. Didn’t want to be on the jury. Opposes the death penalty. “God is the one that makes the final judgment.”
Juror No. 3
White woman, 32, single, lives with parents, attending nursing school. Only juror who said she’d never heard of the case. “My ignorance works in my favor at this point.”
Juror No. 4
Black woman, about 40, doesn’t watch the news. Has no opinion on the death penalty.
Juror No. 5
White woman in her 50s or 60s, retired nurse, has son and grandson, has heard about the case but formed no opinion on it. “I guess I believe in the death penalty. I’d have to know a lot of facts before I really considered it.”
Juror No. 6
White man, 33, chef, married with two children. Didn’t want to serve on the jury. Could recommend death sentence. “If the law dictated it, I would be able to follow it.”
Juror No. 7
White woman, 41, divorced, no children. Recalls hearing “something about Universal [Studios, where Anthony falsely claimed she was working] and a baby sitter.” Didn’t want to serve, but said she would because “It’s how I was raised.”
Juror No. 8
White woman in her 50s, service representative for Verizon, heard little about the case, says she has moderate attitude about death penalty.
Juror No. 9
White man, 53, never married, semi-retired, is caregiver to a stroke victim. Supports the death penalty “in the proper situation.”
Juror No. 10
White man, 57, billing representative for Verizon, never married. Remembers hearing about a “young lady accused of killing her child.” Says the death penalty is “a necessary option.”
Juror No. 11
White man in his 30s, teaches physical education and health, said case was talked about in his school’s teachers lounge, with most saying Anthony was guilty. Said voting for the death penalty would be difficult. “I guess I could consider it, but having to make that decision would be very tough for me.”
Juror No. 12
White woman between 35 and 45, married, has two children. Previously worked at day care center. Adamant supporter of the death penalty and eager to serve on Anthony jury. “My kids think I’m a great mom,” she said on her juror questionnaire.
