Casey Anthony --

NOT GUILTY of Murder

7/5/2011 11:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony was just found NOT GUILTY of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in Florida back in 2008.

Casey Anthony Verdict
Casey was found GUILTY on four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

Anthony was teary-eyed as the verdict was read.  A judge has ordered Anthony to be fingerprinted immediately.

Anthony faces up to 4 years in state prison for lying to the cops -- one year for each count. Sentencing has been scheduled for Thursday morning.

Casey's parents seemed shocked when the first not guilty verdict was read -- and they got up and walked out of the courtroom during the reading.

After the judge wrapped things up, Anthony finally smiled and shared a giant embrace with her lawyer.

Anthony has been locked up for the past three years ... which will count as time served against any sentence that the judge may hand down.

OJs jury strikes again

Casey thought she could lie her way out of anything. Casey thought she was smarter than everyone else. The jury just proved she was right.

Unfortunately, when you take someone to trial with small particles of evidence, it can backfire. This wasn't a miscarriage of justice, this was a well executed crime. No matter what REALLY happened, the lack of evidence worked in favor of whoever was responsible

This is awesome! She didn't kill that little girl but i'm sure she knows something about who did. Amazing how Judgmental american people are, wanting her to be guilty of the crime when in fact the LAW says she is not. Awesome win for Casey Anthony!

You know why 90% of American's cannot believe the verdict? Because the media TOLD US for so long that she was guilty. The media painted this awful picture of her being an unfit mother, partying and getting tattoos. Sadly, the State ran with that same exact argument. IF YOU CAN'T DETERMINE A CAUSE OF DEATH, THEN YOU CANNOT BE TRIED FOR MURDER. What is so f***ing hard to understand about that? A PILE of cir****tantial evidence does NOT make someone guilty. SORRY. I was watching CNN this morning and viewers were writing in questions and someone asked "is there a way to overturn the verdict?" The fact that a question like that was even asked made me laugh because it just goes to show that the same 90% of Americans who gobbled up the character that the media told us Casey Anthony was is the SAME 90% of Americans who do not understand HOW the American judicial system works.

You're all so fixated on using her as a scapegoat for Caylee's murder that you are failing to look at the facts. The American judicial system does not work like voting for your favorite contestant on American Idol. If you wanna see someone burn based on popular opinion then move to the Middle East.

Get Real!!!???    

Mimi...Be foreal the bitch did it! I find it very ironic that after all this time Casey Anthony speaks on her molestation but the bitch doesn't have the guts to report her only damn child missing after thirty days. Then lies and take the police on a goose chase looking for her child and the bitch finally sobers up after thirty days of partying. The bitch lied on her father to distract the attention from her self. I guarantee a month after that whore is released we'll hear of her deceitful ass strapped in a stray jacket. Crazy ass bitch. What more proof do you need. All the evidence was there. Her ass waited thirty days to report her for this exact reason, to make sure she cleaned up all the evidence. @ Big Daddy you are an *******...who the hell could possibly be jealous of a child murder....maybe you were the baby's father ****in lame! Justice was not served. God forbids she has another baby then what??? Accused of on;y lying to the police is a bunch of bs along with check fraud. Casey Anthony is a fraud and a thief stealing money and lives....Thank God the baby is in heaven!

So if she waited 31 days to report the child missing that makes her a murderer?

What about the dad, who is an ex-officer, who said her trunk smelled like there was a dead body in it....why didn't he call the police? He's an officer who claims to know what death smells like. Why didn't he call?

What about Casey's mother who claimed the searches on chloroform were hers? She lied and said a pop up box containing the words chloroform appeared on her screen but forensics proved that was a LIE.

What about the meter reader guy that found the body. His story changed THREE times on how he found the body.


The fact that Caylee's father died in an car accident probably made Casey really messed up in the head. She lived with her parents and had a nanny so she probably didn't spend much time with Caylee anyways. It doesn't surprise me that she waited 31 days since Caylee probably wasn't her first priority anyways.

At last check "beyond a reasonable doubt" does not mean no doubt. Meaning the jury could doubt that she killed Caylee, but she was without a doubt not innocent..
1. the imaginary nanny that kidnapped her
2. Not calling the cops when Caylee went "missing"

Okay she lied about that; What really happened was the baby drowned and she buried the body..

1.If you found your child drowned in a pool wouldn't you call EMS in the hopes that she could be revived?
2. If for some far fetched reason you chose to bury the body yourself, why duct tape her mouth?

Oh well everything she did makes no sense because she was sexually molested by her father & brother

1. If your father sexually molested you, why would you continually leave your female child in his care?
2.If your family was in fact as abusive as you claim, why were your recorded conversations with them so pleasant?

Given just what I have outlined here, anyone can see beyond a reasonable doubt that she is hiding something. Something concerning what happened to that child.
If they could not get her on murder 1 at , she should have at least been convicted o****gravated child abuse or child endangerment.
This ridiculous verdict basically says that she did nothing wrong where her child was concerned. She just lied to the cops.
The jury is comprised of idiots.

I see some of you bright ones saying that people dont get convicted just because the jury KNOWS what they did but there is no hard evidence. I dare ANY one of you to have a look at the scott peterson case and say that again. The prosecutor even said , and I quote "It was a common sense case" They had ZERO evidence on him, ok so he was a liar so what, shouldnt count right? Ok so he was acting like a male whore, what does that prove??? I mean according to some of the pro casey logic I see on here if there isnt a video, it didnt happen. Well they had NOTHING on this guy but he got convicted of first degree murder. Why? Cause he did that shti! Just like casey killed her baby.

She got away with murder because of an uneducated jury who listened to the instructions and interpreted them to mean "remove all human thought and insight from your choice and analyze this case as though you were a computer, if there is one byte of missing data= not guilty" Combine that with the fact they wanted to take their lazy asses home and make as much money off of this as they could and you got a killer walking free.

AGAIN, people are convicted EVERY DAY on SO MUCH LESS than what the prosecution brought to the table in this case. America is angry because America knows this heartless lying whore killed her baby and covered it in lie after stinking lie. Some of us here in this disgustingly over politically correct country, even in this day where you are condemned for doing so, still arent afraid to call an orange an orange or an apple an apple.

YAY!    

This is the verdict you get when you allow high school drop outs to serve on juries. Reasonable doubt is NOT zero doubt. Seems to me they just didn't care since they never looked at ONE piece of evidence during deliberations. Guess they sew in a hurry to make their $$$$. Disgusting.

Im in Australia. This case was widely screened here because of the evil woman who murdered her beautiful little baby girl, all because she wanted to party.
I cannot believe she has gotten away with her terrible terrible crime, that there is no justice for that little girl, that the mother celebrates her freedom, there is still a deceased daughter, but what the hell, lets have a drink and celebrate...
Its not just America where the justice system stinks, it stinks here too.
but in the court systems, you will get the LAW, justice plays no part in the LAW. I hope she gets what she deserves one day soon. RIP little Kaycee x
