Jurist William Blackstone once said "It is Better that ten guilty men go free than one innocent man be convicted". I agree with him and that is my philosophical view of the Casey Anthony case. I doubt anyone thinks Casey Anthony is completely blameless in the death of her daughter, but the prosecution did not have sufficient evidence to make their case for her having murdered her daughter. "A lack of motive" was cited by an alternate as part of the difficulty in reaching a guilty verdict. If convicting Casey could have brought Caylee back, I might have a different viewpoint, but of course it could not. I therefore have to hope that Casey Anthony gets the mental health evaluation and treatment she needs and goes on to do good in the world.
