On the Casey Anthony trial

Had they charged her with the appropriate crime (negligent homicide), they probably would have won the case.  But apparently sending her to jail for many years wasn’t enough; they wanted her dead.  So, they went for murder despite having no proof of premeditation.  The judge should have dismissed the murder charge after the prosecution rested; that he didn’t is a travesty in itself.

There is absolutely no evidence for murder in this case, and anyone who thinks you should convict someone of a crime they didn’t commit because the state failed to charge them with a crime that they did doesn’t deserve to call themselves a libertarian.
