You weigh in: Casey Anthony Not Guilty
Talk about a short-attention span. When the news came in this morning, I had to click the story just to remind myself who Casey Anthony was. The 25-year-old was found not-guilty of first degree murder, not guilty of manslaughter in the death of her 2-year old daughter Caylee.
It's a decision that is sure to cause outrage (there any number of Facebook feeds if you need proof). But reasonable doubt is reasonable doubt. It's the system we have.
My take: Either she's guilty and the stysem f'ed up and this is a miscarriage of justice, or she's innocent and the system accused her of murder. In which case the system f'ed up and this was a miscarriage of justice. Both of those seem like scary propositions.
